Don't know what it is about this picture, but I think she looks hot here:

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Disney Buys LFL

Fox does own the distribution rights for the first film, so it could throw some drama into the reality of this happening. They don't own anything else about the films except that, but it is sort of a big deal.  This is more like WalMart buying the EXCLUSIVE distribution rights to a product, and then the manufacturer trying to sell it at another distributor.  The manufacturer would have to wait for those rights to expire (which they won't here; Fox owns them in perpetuity) or the manufacturer and the distributors would have to hammer out an agreement.

I believe at some point in the next few years we'll get pre-97 cuts of the films.  I know there is murkiness with the rights to Star Wars, but I am sure that Fox would be happy to share in some revenue on a 35 year old film.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Force lightening

Maybe the training isn't so much about the powers themselves, but more about developing the maturity not to use superhuman powers for personal gain.  When Yoda and Ben are training Luke, their backs are against the wall.  They have to pray (to the midichlorians) that Luke's character is firmly developed enough to resist the temptation of using his powers for gain, that he's a good person.

So what do you think Luke's plan was when he tosses the lightsaber away?  He's not going to fight his father, Vader has not yet been redeemed and Palpatine obviously has control of the situation.  If he doesn't see the lightning attack coming, where did he think the confrontation was going to go?  I'm not sure that he knew about the lightning or how to stop it, but he had to think Palps was going to attack with something more than words.

He was planning on being killed along with Palpatine when the rebels blew up the Death Star.

One of the biggest gripes I have with AotC and RotS is Sith Lightning.  How awesome would it be if this was a little trick that Palpy kept to himself until he was utterly backed against the wall?  It cheapens it in RotJ, IMO.

Carol did not die on screen.

Now that you are caught up, you are in the same boat as the rest of us; hopelessly addicted having trouble waiting for our next fix.

Another terrible idea I thought of...Darth Maul is also of right now in SW Canon alive again...ugh

Hate that too.  Maybe we'll see someone taking on Vader's outfit, impersonating him.  Then Luke has to clear Anakin's name.  Wow.  That sounds lame as I type it.

I didn't loathe the first one, and this new one looked decent.  I really liked Renegades.

Heads up for any interested...  It looks like WalMart has Brave on BD for under $9 on BF...

Any company would be interested in those properties!  While I would admit that the GI Joe brand is not being handled really well, MLP is doing well I think, and TF had 3 hugely successful films, (even if I think they blow) with a fourth in the works.  These are marquee brands.

I don't think I was exactly clear...  What I meant was the Merle character would clearly want to kill T-Dog and Rick for what they did to him.  In a society where Terry Bradshaw gets in trouble for mentioning fried chicken, I'd imagine that someone would be "offended" that a "racist" character (even if he's not racist anymore) killed a black man.  If Merle had come back to the fold and NOT wanted to kill T-Dog, and not even for just purely racial reasons, then that would be silly.

Hall of Justice / Re: DC Imaginext

I've been grabbing a bunch of Imaginext stuff for my 2YO.  He has a few Superhero items, but he LOVES the airplanes.  These are some pretty cool toys, and the pilots from the planes remind me of M.A.S.K. figures with their accessories.

Didn't see the episode on Sunday, and TWD's Facebook totally spoiled the ending.  Grrr!

This was such a fantastic hour of TV.  If Andrew Lincoln is not at least in the Emmy discussion...

I was sad, but not shocked to see T-Dawg come to an end.  As edgy as this show is, I don't think even they would want to veer into what a racist (Merle) would do to an African American, and it is inevitable that the prison crew collides with the Woodbury crew soon.  It would either come off disingenuous and out of character, or they would have surely made some headlines.

Went to see Wreck It Ralph this weekend.  I really liked it.  Way too many VG references to absorb in one viewing.  Lots of fun!

Do you think there will be any mention of Vader anywhere in the new movie?

Not Vader - but Anakin - why else would Lucas change the force ghost of Anakin to Hayden Christensen if not so Anakin's ghost could show up as an adviser to Elder Luke Skywalker.

Ooh...  That sounds pretty cool.
