If Daryl and pals had known more about the Wolves, they could left W's on the heads of the dead Negan bikers and wrote "Wolves Not Far".

Zombies don't make sense. They don't have working digestive systems, they keep going without food, water, blood pressure, oxygen. They are rotting away but can bite through denim. They have no reason to be stealthy but sometimes are. They can smell the living...over their own stench? They can and cannot see well.

Save the space whales, murder the hard working gas miners...even Ezra gets kill happy, sending a Rodian pilot to his icy space tomb. They weren't imperials, more like independent contractors. But hey, they were also ugly aliens who flew TIE fighters...ugly yellow tie fighters...and had the nerve to attack a ship whose gun turret was aiming at them.  Same ship was heading to their facility to steal from them.

Homecoming was better, even if the Empire is pretty incompetent...why do stormtroopers have a policy of asking intruders to surrender? Don't they have stun settings?

Where did the evacuated carrier TIES go? To the light cruiser? To the surface? I know they had to get the imperials off the ship, they can't just kill them like gas miners. Oh, right they totally killed everyone on the light cruiser.  :P

Twi'leks are odd. The men have humanoid ears and sharp teeth. The women have nub ears and human teeth.  Looking at her dad, how did Hera wind up green? Was her mom green? Is that a dominant gene...the green gene?

Meat Poncho Villa is an upcoming character, he sues Rick for stealing his idea.

Enid can materialize guns out of thin air.

Is she a genie? Or is it the power of the lord working through her? Because Glen cannot be right about everything, especially something as specific as finding a gun hidden in a church. Unless, Glen is a chosen one. How else could he survive the dumpster?

Rick's exceptional, he's gotten 90% of the town's populace killed within a 3 day period. Anyone else would've gotten Jesse and her kids to another safe building, but he stuck to guns (with another absurd "plan") and pushed them out there  to be a long pork buffet for the walkers.

Sam was Lot's Wife. He stopped, looked back. DOOMED. Pillar of salt..ed...pork. It's disturbing how many fans were rooting for his death. Yeah, he was irritating and never had a chance. But, what kid of kid would? Sophia, Lizzie, her sister...the disappearing other kids from the prison. No kids, no future. Might as well call the human race OVER.

Carl needs better hero armor, like Glen and Rick have.

Why am I posting here again?

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

A character in a sci fi/fantasy movie wearing something that looks cool, but doesn't necessarily seem like it serves a specific purpose? How ridiculous.
"masked no reason thing", okay, I wrote that before I read other people's comments pointing out how insecure Kylo Ren is. So he's hiding behind the mask as much it's for intimidating others. But I also said it was safe, and in expected and good for selling toys. (Ironic thing to say in this message board)

And instead of a heroine, I'd have gone the no hero at all route. Again, really a heroine? Shouldn't she have been cooking? There wasn't a single male hero either.

There was a scene of her cooking.  ;)

It seemed a bit obligatory in the age of Hunger Games, etc., to make the apparently new  chosen Light Sider female. Rey was a decent character; Daisy Ridley did a good job. But I'll still call it a safe choice for covering demographics.

And there is no place for comic relief in a movie about galactic war.

Welcome to 1999! (Who knows how much Jar Jar would've been in Episodes 2 and 3 if people had reacted differently?)

I'm mixed about Finn because if we believe the exposition, he should've been trained from youth to fight (later we find out he was in sanitation...what?), but then becomes comic relief because that's what the movie needed. Then he can remember he can fight at some point. Some would call this characterization/inner conflict, but I feel like two characters were shoehorned into one.

But seriously I get that anyone that's watched A New Hope even once saw the parallels but I think you may have been a tad harsh

Maybe. How is calling it safe and mediocre "harsh"? 

If I could narrow down my general grievances they would be: As nice as it was to see the characters again, I didn't care for the directions they took the original trilogy characters (Ackbar should be ruling the galaxy).  I also dislike "the Republic" thing because it was just an underdeveloped mess, existing only to be destroyed, thus either leveling the playing field or making the good guys underdogs again (as audiences expect?).  Not even gonna speculate too much on Snoke...I figure he's really the size of Meebur Gascon, that why he went unnoticed for decades.

The prequels were picked apart by almost everyone. They made money. This is making tons of money.  Star Wars will keep going for a long time. What does my opinion matter? I barely even collect anything anymore. Just saying I wasn't too satisfied with the film, I wasn't that satisfied with Spectre or Age of Ultron, either. Getting old and cynical, maybe? Or just hoping for better creative directions?

I thought it a mediocre sequel in a  year full of mediocre-to-subpar sequels. Someone said, probably more than one someone, it felt like a movie made by committee to make a mass-appeal sequel. And it succeeded. Can't say it was bad as I was never bored, but the nicest thing I can think of was "hey, that was a movie".

The basic plot with new characters was as safe as it gets (pretty independent  heroine, hotshot pilot, cute upon cute droid,  comic relief, masked-for-no-reason emo villain, mysterious master villain, fascist lackey villain, non-entity female villain). The sequel aspects were bad decision after bad decision. 

Next movie, I expect the reveal that Finn and Rey are also Han's kids.  Maybe General Hux, too. He and Kylo have a brotherly rivalry.  :P

Racist people?

Uh, Jesse, what would consider the term "white trash" to be?
Because if one were to put another color in front of "trash", it can get quite racist.

Just sayin', is all.

This takes place 2 and 1/2 years into their 5 year mission.

So they waited that long to trash the ship again.

If the Rock runs around with a hologram on his chest and hops into his Camaro that turns into a jet, then I'll be surprised.

This is where the frontier pushes back

Really, does the villain have writers room  to come up with that?

Wondering what the big secret is...THE TWIST...right, this isn't JJ Abrams.

So maybe this is Point Break in space.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Recent purchases
« on: December 13, 2015, 05:23 PM »
At a Wal-Mart that never seemed to put them out back in the summer, I found the part of wave with Mosep in the clearance section for the "clearance price' of $12.83. So I completed my 2015 collecting goal...buying Mosep Binneed*. That was it. Really. It might be the second Star Wars thing I've bought at retail all year. I haven't gotten any Force Awakens items. Wait until I see the movie to see if I care.

*Yeah, i could've gotten online, but I wanted  a decent paint job for my money.

I would've bought the Jawas if I ever saw them. Maybe carbonite Han Solo, too.

Is Clancy Brown required to do a voice in every cartoon series now?

Kallus, when kid starts kicking your ass, you're out of your league.

Trying to collect them all might put you in the Poe house.  :D

Lash is still loose and so is Powers Boothe.

Some one once called the AoS team the "b-team" (before the Hydra reveal in season 1). And that's what's happening, the B-Team is running what's left of SHIELD. This first half season they didn't accomplish jack diddly squat. Hydra is still around. Lash is loose again. Marooned astronaut is dead. Ward is dead but now some undead space slug host that they weren't supposed to allow on Earth.

And both notable members of that other agency are dead. Those captured inhumans are dead. And Coulson tossed away his awesome hand.

That makes me like the show, though.
