Star Wars Anthology / Re: Rogue One (SPOILERS)

Yes, but what about the laser cannons and turrets?  Those were like slinging stones at the walkers too.  I get that the speeders were being adapted to the cold and fighters were useless, so that leaves the ground attack (besides orbital) as the only option.

My only guess is that the rebels worked in cells, Leia's cell heard about walkers but never faced them, whereas Mon Mothma's might.  Therefore those laser turrets were untested against the might of the AT-ATs.

It's just a way to sell more product.  ;)

I'll be interested in seeing how these walkers perform in the grand scheme of things.  Will they be easier to destroy (lighter armor?) than the ATs?  To me, it felt like the Rebels first encountered the ATs on Hoth (even though they knew of them) since they had inadequate firepower to take them down and only realized using the tow cables would work if they could get close enough.  The Rebels seemed unsure of how to defeat them.

Remember Kubricks?  *sigh*

I think they'll be the subject of the next Indiana Jones movie.

What happened at Marvel?

The Cap is actually a Hydra agent after all these years.

I'm just amazed at the "outrage" that Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes should be gay instead of best buds growing up together.  Plus the whole Cap was kissing on Carter's grand niece or something didn't make it obvious.

As for the Cap comic news... I agree with you two. Really?  After all these years?  Well, we know this can't be tied in to the MCU... Or maybe it can.  In the comic 'verse, anything can happen.

So it was Lincoln who buys it.  It wasn't shocking enough or an electrifying sacrifice for me to be sad about.  I expected someone from the original team, though I guess Brett Dalton will no longer be on the show, even though his character died and was reborn.  Maybe I should be sad for him?

Plus, Agent Carter is cancelled as is Most Wanted (never got off the ground), so for me losing Hunter and Bobbi tugged at the heart strings more than this death did.

Two Marvel shows gone/no longer green-lit: Agent Carter dies twice in a month and Most Wanted doesn't make the little screen.

I'll go with the Bs.  Blues v Bolts in the Finals.  I know the Sharks played better in-season than the Blues but I like how the Notes are playing and some home team bias as well.  Penguins are formidable opponents and this series can go either way.

I know Martin has said that some of the favorites don't survive and some of those that we despise survive.  I really hope that Ramsay meets his.  I can't see someone as depraved as him not meeting a gruesome fate.  He's too unstable to consolidate the North around him and keep them loyal.  But... I forget the history, but weren't the Boltons a major house in the North until the Starks got tired of them flaying their enemies and took a lot of their power from them?

Tyron's another one that I hope doesn't die.

Oshie and Holtby did well.  I think Ovi was good, but he wasn't the star that carries the team to the Cup and hasn't been so far... Not in the lines of a Crosby or Malkin.

One 2-hour episode leaf in the season and a promised death of a major character that Daisy foresaw.  Well, they showed Mack getting the cross necklace that is shown in the death scene, but I think that's a misdirect.  The previews showed Fitz holding it, but I think it might be an after the death scene like sorting one's belongings.  But I think it should be Daisy, because she was touched by the guy that shows that person's fate, not someone else's.

Any predictions?

I wish someone would explain to the Capitals that the postseason is when you want to play good hockey. The Stanley Cup is the big trophy not the President's Trophy.

The Rangers needed that speech last year and probably several other teams in seasons past.   :'(

Sitting in the credits now...

Edit:  There are two after credit scenes.  First one is cool, the end one is okay, so if you miss the last one, you won't be devastated.

Late in the game for picks, but pretty much Jeff's picks, but Caps over Pens.  That's a pretty good contest there.

I was at the Blues game last night.  That was fun, but kind of wish the final score wasn't as big.  I always feel like the goal-gods even things out.

I wonder if Littlefinger will find the Vale not as safe as he thought when either the dragons or whir walkers arrive.
