Watto's Junk Yard / Re: A Game of Thrones (HBO)

Saw this on the Internets.... donate some money and you could have a character named after you and in a very GoT-themed way... murdered.

Let's just get the next books done, too, please.

Disagree.  Qui-Gon was a father figure for Anakin.  If we learned anything about Anakin's journey, it's that he suffers continued loss.  His first loss is leaving home, albeit as a freed slave.  But then he loses his mentor, Qui-Gon, when he is killed by Darth Maul. long did Anakin know Qui-Gon?  I get the father figure concept, but can you really count a guy who was in your life for maybe a week as a father figure?

I'd say he made a better one than Watto.  ;)  But I think that was what Qui-Gon's role in the saga was to be- the father figure, but I get what you're saying.  Still, look at all the things Qui-Gon did for him, freed him, fought for him to be in the order, believed in him... it may have been enough to have that impact on Anakin.  Of course, the other father-figure perversed that training.

And from there, Anakin turns to Palps as the father-figure not Obi-Wan (who was more a friend).

A modified X-Wing... so, will Han have modified the Falcon, too?  Or is that piece of junk rusted a bit more after 30 years?

It's kind of like how someone on here (Was it you, Bill?) commented that it felt like they had the ending and worked backwards to the beginning...  someone wrote a big post here when the movie came out about this.

I just hope there aren't any big spoilers in the trailers.  I still wish that LFL would have kept Maul's double-bladed saber secret until the movie.  That was a "Holy ****!" moment that would have had more impact seeing it first in the film instead of "I know he's got two blades."  That moment alone was worth price of admission.

I LOVE that I don't know what's coming and that no one is safe - except Tyrion and Arya - I want to know that they will always be safe  ;)

I'd love to think that about a lot of characters, but after reading the books, I try not to get too attached to characters now, because like life anything can happen...  not saying anything about Tyrion and Arya... just in general.

Just like pretty much everyone in the story has a good side and a dark side... there are a few exceptions to this being that a character's time in the story is limited so they come off one-sided, so to speak.

Tyrion's expression as the Red Viper makes it personal is priceless.

I finally saw "The Desolation of Smaug" or "The Desolation of Peter Jackson" last night.  I was underwhelmed and I think it's because PJ is bringing too much into the movie that wasn't in the book.  To be fair, it's his adaptation, but it was horrible in my opinion.  Too much orc chasing, too much love story that felt shoved in there for a romance angle.  With all the extra parts with Gandalf were cool, but I felt a little out of place time-wise.  It seems that Sauron already has an orc-army at the ready and is marching out to take over Middle-Earth.  And the summoning of the Nazgul as well.  I had thought that quite a few number of years passed between the Hobbit and LotR and in that time Sauron was amassing his army.  It almost seems that some of these scenes should be an epilogue....

Being a Rangers fan, I'm not giving up now.  Rangers in whatever it takes (at least 4).

I'm rooting for the 'Hawks in this series.  My brother's a fan and I'm trying to get him to splurge for Cup tickets so we can root for opposite teams.

I wonder with Disney's purchase if we can finally get the Tonnika Sisters.  I mean, they can't complain that they are "Star Whores"... they made a movie called "Pretty Woman" under one of their studios.

Cantina and Jabba's Palace sound very interesting.  Surprised that Hasbro doesn't do a BP similar to the Battle of Endor one, except do the Scout in Hoth colors and throw in snowtroopers, AT-AT Commanders, some rebels troops and commanders.
