I recall something from the ESB era...less generic space base and more environmental specfic from that film Dagobah and/or Hoth. Saw it online.


Not as big and sturdy as the Star Wars one.

When did Mark Hamill become the Unabomber?

After he returned to Kenobi's house and discovered Obi-Wan's anti-technology manifesto.

Yeah, it kinda sucked and felt almost entirely like filler. The totally barren planet was almost interesting for about 5 mintues. Waaaay to much dialouge between the Colonel and pit droid....hell, it was almost a radio show, you could close your eyes and you wouldn't miss anything...maybe the comets. And joke talk about suicide? For saturday morning?

What did we learn, that the stuffy colonel can adapt? That Astromechs are smarter than pit droid and little loud mouths? I think we got that last time.

I think I used it.

Naboo Pilot is $3.99. Wow. That's cheap.

Vengeance on whom? We've never seen this guy before. And even a new actor playing an old character it doesn't work.  I'M GONNA GET EVEN WITH YOU...REMEMBER WHEN I WAS RICARDO MONTALBAN? (I don't know who CuCumberbatch is supposed to be) It just doesn't work. That's why the original Spock was needed for the previous movie.

Actually, the revenge angle gets old.

Thos Mariah pictures remind me of the classic XMas song AC/DC's "I want a mistress for Christmas"

I dislike Xmas at this point in my life and most Xmas music in general. But anything Jingle Cats. The novelty wears off after 2 songs and then I never want to hear it again.

They need to ease up on the cannon/walker fodder a little. This thing running into new people or vice-versa every other episode just so some one disposable can get shot or eaten is tedious. Think about, this season is half over and they've encounted 3 other groups of survivors (Woodbury, Prisoners, Tyreese's group) and one loner (hermit). I'm not even counting the national guard, since only the Governer's people really "met" them. All of last season they encountered 2 (the farm and bar jerks' crew) and one loner (Michonne...barely).

Lot of naysaying for a movie that's barely, or maybe not really in preproduction. I'd just as soon they use Darkseid rather than save him for a sequel that may not happen. Look at Superman Returns...there was stuff they were saving for a sequel that was never made.

There's no rule that a lead villain can't return for a sequel, either...though Avengers, aside, you'd get that impression.

Spoiler: If you caught the Talking Dead preview for the next episode (in february), it looks like Tyrese's pals are headed in the death wish direction.

Yeah...Oscar, we hardly knew ya. I almost thought Andrea was gonna kill him.

Tyrese and friends literally walk into the story. Wonder how that part of the prison was destroyed. For a second I thought that the opening may have been  set in future, sometimes after a confrontation between the Woodburies and Rick's people...but not the case.

Governor got Michowned! HA! tool as usual.

Did Daryl let himself be captured?

Saw SKYFALL this afternoon. It was okay. Entertaining. The action was good, the plot...less so.  Better than Quantum of Solace, which was almost all chase scenes.

Bardem seemed to be channelling the late Raul Julia at times, coming off as a tad campy. His character was too much like Michael Bean's from Goldeneye. It's like the well of villainry has run dry in the P.C. world.  There's so few acceptable baddie types left and their schemes have to be more grounded nowdays. On the other hand, at least there was no satellite weapon.

The films makes Bond seem old and tired, I guess to make him more vunerable.  Craig is in better shape that I've ever been in, but damn he does look old and tired at times. Not that I want him to quit, he's got at least 2 more films in him (both contractually and physically).

Anyway, I wasn't disappointed in SKYFALL, but I wasn't expecting much.

Got Dr. E and Nom at a Wal-Mart. Sucks to have pay $10 each when there's so much cheap stuff and sales around. But better safe than sorry.

Evazan's likeness is still a tad lacking, but better than the 90's one. Could've tossed a bar glass in with him.

Target here still shows no signs of having got any vintage cases since spring. TRU is barren.

Went to a Wal-Mart today, saw they still had some of these, sign above them said $20. Surely not. Scanned a legends one...yes, $20!  Glue annoyances aside, that's $2.50 a figure. 

It's still too bad some of the figures are sucky and there's no OT items.  It's also a shame that websites go overboard on their watermarks.
