The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens (SPOILERS)
« on: January 9, 2016, 09:07 AM »
I was finally able to catch a second screening of THE FORCE AWAKENS today at a matinee showing.  It was good to have some time to process a lot of what I had seen on opening day and go into this showing being able to watch for some very specific things.  First?  The emotional aspect of the film still rang through very well.  The new cast is really good.  And I think Harrison Ford really delivered.

There's been a bunch of discussion about Carrie Fisher's performance since the movie came out.  Having seen the movie again, it seems that her role was very deliberately focused where it needed to be.  I still got the sense that Leia and Han retreated personally following Ben Solo turning to the Dark Side, and they both came across as damaged people.

The Force vision that Rey has is clearly one of the high points of the movie.  Seeing that hallway from Cloud City still gets me.  And Kylo Ren killing what I presume to be a Jedi, and standing amid the bodies with the other Knights of Ren?  I was paying keen attention this time!  I heard the Obi-Wan voices, but I didn't catch the Yoda voice.

Another thing?  It seems very clear that Kylo Ren, possibly Snoke, Han Solo, Leia and Luke all realize who Rey really is.  I think that there's a strong likelihood that Rey was one of the students at the fallen Jedi Temple from her Force vision.  And it seems that she may have been one of the only survivors.

Last?  I took a good long look when Rey got to Ahch-To and presented the Skywalker lightsaber to Luke.  I was able to see his robotic hand, and his clothes.  And it looks like he's got a white & tan version of the outfit that he wore when he arrived at Jabba's palace in RETURN OF THE JEDI.

That's what it looked like to me.  Maybe in the next one we'll see Luke's lightsaber from Return of the Jedi.

I think now the last ones I got for LEGO 2014 were the Mos Eisley Cantina, the Droid Tri-Fighter, the Separatist Dropship, and the Snowspeeder.

I actually saw the Battle of Takodana set at my local Toys R Us.

I wonder if they'll really just make more here.

I actually got now only three of the elite series figures for Christmas.  I got Finn (Jakku), Poe Dameron, and Rey (Jakku) with BB-8 and Rey had Luke's lightsaber.

I got Ecto-1 in 2014 and I'm still deciding on the firehouse.

TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Season 2 (Spoilers)

When I heard they actually were casting Sarah Michelle Gellar as one of the inquisitors for season 2, I thought it was interesting here because she is married to Freddie Prinze Jr, who does the voice of Kanan.

I actually then bought all six Star Wars movies in August of last year.

Star Wars Universe / Re: Star Wars on Blu-Ray

So far I do think now the blu-ray versions are only the best current versions of all the Star Wars movies.

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: New Star Wars Battlefront

I actually got now only the game for Christmas.  It's awesome but multiplayer is kind of hard as heck.

It's hard for anyone over 30 to play mulitplayer since you get your ass handed to you within five seconds of spawning by some ten year old punk. My son tried it any took control of he game very quickly. If your good at call of duty, your good at this.

But still an enjoyable game indeed nonetheless.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens (SPOILERS)

I remember when I only first saw the film when we saw just something or someone from the original trilogy (i.e. Han Solo, Chewbacca), there was much applause in the theater.  I also enjoyed the lightsaber duel between Rey and Kylo Ren.

I already have the figure of Princess Leia.

59
I wish they only gave to Rey or Finn the lightsaber to re-create the duel toward the end of the movie.

I hope they are super-articulated too.

1.  Rey (Ending scene) with BB-8 and lightsaber
2.  C-3PO with red arm.
3.  Kylo Ren (unmasked) with Darth Vader's burnt helmet.
4.  General Hux
5.  Maz Kanata
6.  Luke Skywalker Jedi Master (Ending scene) with lightsaber
7.  Leia (Resistance General)
8.  Han Solo (First Appearance)
9.  Captain Phasma (Articulated)
10.  TR-8R (The stormtrooper Finn fought in the film)
