Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The Walking Dead

i didn't like it
i get what ur saying jesse and i'm not saddened about it the way i was when hershel died. no attachment to these kids like hershel, i mean i figured they die eventually, but still. that just seemed wrong. a sister killing a sister. then carol having to kill the other wow. hasn't her character been thru enough. if i was in that situation i don't think i could've killed a child. probably wouldv'e locked her in the house n left her to her own demise/survival then looking at her and pulling a trigger just ouch don't think i could've done that. obviously she had mental problems that couldn't be dealt with in that world.

This story sort of paralleled a story from the comics.  There were twin boys whose parents had been killed by walkers and Andrea and Dale (who were a couple in the comics), took up responsibility for watching them.  One brother killed the other similar to how it happened in the episode (I didn't hurt his brain, he'll come back).  While everyone in the group was debating on what they should do, it was Carl who shot him in the middle of the night.

I'm down to the last 3 episodes and I really wish Hasbro would make that Jedi Fighter Yoda is flying!

Started this last night and I'm about 50 pages in.  So far it's typical of Clancy and its just a bunch of story lines to get started.  I imagine after about 100-150 pages it will really take off.

I'm reading this one now (received it for Christmas, but it's tough to read with a 3 year old and a 4 month old in the house).  It's crazy on how it's paralleling what's going on in current events in regards to the Ukraine!

I watched the first story arc about the Tuffs and Fives.  If the rest of the series was telling stories similar to this, I would have liked it so much more!

It's still a good looking Yoda....I just wish it could be more like the TF display.

Kinda cool insight to the episode on the talking dead.  The zombies hanging in the country club was a result of the staff fighting with the country club patrons...also the one in the pro shop with the rich bitch sign.

Pretty cool that there was an interesting back story there!

Yeah, that was cool. The first thing I thought of when I saw that sign though was the episode last year where they found other corpses with signs on them like "Liar" etc. Sort of made me wonder if there is some psycho running around.

There is...her name's Lizzie!

I liked the episode even though it was paced very slow.  It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but these types of episodes are needed to develop the characters...so you care when they are eventually eaten by the zombie horde.  :D

Darryl and Merle are not in the comics at all.  Carol is much different in the comics as well.

I don't know if it's the medium or if Kirkman's writing has evolved, but the characters in the comics are much more one-dimensional...but the stories can be much more brutal.  There are some plotlines I just can't see how they would make the television show!

That blows.  He was one of the better EU writers.

Jocasta's Reading Room / Re: Star Wars comics go back to Marvel
« on: March 1, 2014, 01:19 AM »
I love the current Star Wars series set post ANH.  I really hope Marvel keeps it going with the same creative team.

I agree, the Legacy Volume 2 stuff is good as well, but I think they are ending it soon.

The 2:5 mark shows you the Boba Fett view of Godzilla!  :D

Definitely a good episode, I'm glad to see Abraham, Eugene and Rosita are pretty true to form from the comic.

This whole "Darth Icky" nonsense reads as beyond ridiculous at face value.  And it really left me wondering about a couple of things. 

First, is the story legit?  Without knowing any of the sources involved it's tough to make that judgement.  If it's all true it has to leave you with some serious questions about just what GL was thinking.

And second?  Is it possible this happened but GL had ulterior motives in judging things?  Because the names alone sound preposterous.  To a degree that it comes across like some sort of put-on.  Is it possible that GL went into this meeting with a totally ridiculous proposal in an effort to judge his own people?  Had he grown in stature to the point that nobody within his companies was prepared to challenge him on his creative ideas?  To someone with a background like his own that would probably seem like he had finally become what he had railed against in his younger days:  a studio apparatus that was out of touch with the work of the people on the artistic front lines.  Lucas's work with Francis Coppolla and American Zoetrope tried to buck that Hollywood system in an effort to do something new and different in film.  And effectively the Star Wars films, with the exception of the first, wound up being independent films.  But Star Wars had grown into something SO BIG that it seems like George Lucas had become the very thing that he had fought against for so much of his career.  It must be an eye-opening thing to be in a position where nobody will speak truth to power, and YOU are the power.

So, witness the sale of Star Wars/Lucasfilm to Disney.  And the fact that GL is going to be putting the bulk of that money towards philanthropic pursuits.  That, combined with the fact that he's stated that he wants to work on small, independent films say to me that GL probably recognized that this thing had grown far beyond even his own imagination, and perhaps it was time to move on since he couldn't find people that would be partners with him in a creative collaboration.

If only he had sold the franchise in 1997.

What a shame that those games were not developed properly.  Hell, I'm still disappointed that KOTOR II was released unfinished (still a fun game though).
