  • Star Wars Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker *SPOILER DISCUSSION*

    Well, it didn't suck. However there was something lifeless about a lot of the film. Just a pretty hollow experience sadly. 

    As someone who LOVES the Last Jedi, while there were certainly "digs" at it, it actually didn't feel like the big middle finger that critics made it out to be. I will say there was absolutely no good reason Rose couldn't have at least been part of the fetch quest. And I don't want to hear that it should be only the big 3. It could've been the 4 of them just like how Lando was a part of the adventure in ROTJ after becoming a principal character in the prior film. It kind of pisses me off that JJ let the fucking haters win on that one.
  • Trailers and Upcoming Movies Thread

    Black Widow Trailer - Good trailer. And frankly its frustrating Marvel took this long to make this film but I'm glad we finally got here.

    Ghostbusters - Well made however it didn't really hit me emotionally for some reason. I guess because to me Ghostbusters was always a comedy first to me? I think if it was funnier instead of that Amblin/Stranger Things vibe I would be more pumped. I'm certainly curious though. 

    Wonder Woman 84 - Fan-fucking-tastic. Set to Blue Monday. The bright color palette. Gal looks great. Pedro looks wonderfully scummy. Intrigued about Cheetah. The Golden Eagle Armor. The Invisible Jet. Riding the lightning. Just wow what a trailer. The movie just feels big. I can't wait.
  • The Mandalorian Chapter 5: The Gunslinger SPOILERS

    I don't know. After the first 3 episodes I'm alarmed at the decline in the past two episodes. We had what felt like movie production episodes then these last two felt like the old production crew from the 90s Star Trek series took over. It's not terrible, in fact its decent to good but in that old school good TV way rather than the premium quality we had gotten the first 3 episodes. 

    In addition I didn't care for going back to Tatooine and frankly it only makes sense if that was Boba Fett at the end over Ming Na Wen, which likely its not. I'm more sure it was Giancarlo Esposito's character.

    At least Jon Favreau knows the correct way to fan service, don't stuff it in my face an say "see, see this? Member this? This is cool, right?" He just puts a ton of props that I see and say "Hey, isn't that...? That's cool."
    Agreed. This is something the spin off films thus far have clumsily handled. As much as I love Rogue One, still cringe a little at the C-3P0 cameo and the run in with the ANH cantina drunks. And don't get me started with the fan service in Solo, so god awful. 
  • The Mandalorian - Episode 1 SPOILERS

    I liked it alot. Something I actually never truly took into consideration was pacing. I'm so used to Star Wars movies where the pace generally has to be kinetic, so the first 15 minutes or so I realized I had to adjust my brain to the "slower" pace that an television format permits. It was weird for Star Wars but real nice. I'm interested in where this goes next.
