Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Toys R Us (Or: Die, Dinosaur, Die!)
« Last post by Chris M on Today at 10:15 PM »
I stopped by on my way home today.  Stuff is on sale for 40-60% off now.  I grabbed a couple of Nerf guns and a few hundred rounds for me and my daughter.  I told her when that stuff went on a real sale I'd scoop some up.  Most of the actual guns were sold, so I figured it was now or never unless I wanted to be stuck with the zombie crossbow and nothing else.  My daughter will be stoked when I surprise her with them.

Exactly.

Basically if You kept coming into every topic On Star Wars (not even TLJ...  it could be toys, Han Solo, any rumor of a future film whatever), and basically said ďitís too bad Disney ruined all of Star Wars with their SJW Agenda!  The OT is the only real Star Wars!Ē, and you didnít just say that one time but Every single thread or the comments below every ad or trailer...  thatís basically what is going on on sites that have Disqust integrated in them, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Reddit...  everything.

I posted on my twitter feed something just saying I found the background idea of a Solo character (a droid...  Iím trying to be completely non spoilers vague here) to be funny.  Some guy who didnít even follow me, so he had to have actively been searching for the subject in some way, started in with Disney SJW Agenda, Star Wars is forever ruined, Lucas never did this, I donít want messages in my Star Wars blah blah blah.

Itís often not even remotely articulate too.  This guy at least had coherent thoughts even though I thought they were dumb.  Usually itís just blind hate without much logic applies and a whole lot of ďIím all for diversity BUT.......Ē, and whatever comes next just makes you sad that these are or were your peers.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Star Wars Spin-Off #? - Boba Fett?
« Last post by Nicklab on Today at 06:51 PM »
Read all about it at The Hollywood Reporter.  Writer/Director  James Mangold is reportedly attached to the long rumored Boba Fett movie.

An interesting note?  Writer/Producer Simon Kinberg had previously been reported as working on the Boba Fett film, and had the originally slated director fired based on his conduct in the production of the Fantastic 4 reboot.  Kinberg has a history of working with Mangold, most recently on "Logan".  Given their previous working relationship?  Hiring Mangold makes sense.

Justin's take on TLJ would be how I'd expect a rational Star Wars fan to react. You didn't love it. You had plenty of issues. You shared those issues and discussed/debated it online.

At no point did you decide Kathleen Kennedy needed to die or declare to never enjoy another Star Wars entity again.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Solo (SPOILER FREE)

Is it really possible for 10,000+ IMDb raters to have seen "Solo" already?

I'm too lazy to research the release dates, but I assume if Europe follows the US methodology of releasing today at 7PM they've had two-ish showings per screen by now.  Seems high, but who knows.

It IS pathetic that every page/ad what-not for recent movies gets attacked. 

"They should burn every copy of TLJ."
"Mary Sue this."
"I hate Rose."
"Vice Admiral Gender Studies" What?!

These complainers aren't Star Wars fans.  They don't get the subtle message that is put out there about acceptance of differences (cantina, rebellion, senate, Han/Chewie).

But hey, let's blame Kathleen Kennedy for one's own insecurities.

Like Dave, I'm pretty sheltered and pretty much just go to JD for my SW news, so hadn't heard about any of this until today.  Its unfortunate, but it is what it is I guess.  I think almost everything from Disney has been better than almost everything from the prequels, so I can't relate to all the hate.  Its not always my favorite and I'm not known for being shy about stuff I don't like, but there's no reason to full on hate any of this stuff.  I loved TFA and RO, and even TLJ had its moments.

I honestly think this is more of a function of the times and people's ability to criticize or hate from the comfort and anonymity of their little corner in the basement.  For small minded people who have no other outlet for their frustrations, the internet is a safe zone where they can beat up on something else to distract them from something they hate about their own life.  Its really sad if you think about it - someone is dedicating their precious time to go to a Star Wars website to complain about how much they don't like Star Wars and make others feel bad about it.   ::)  Life's too short for that nonsense.

I picked up another Guardians of Evil 4-pack at B&N.  I got the B&N member card, so I got 10% off from that, plus they offered up another 15% off with an online coupon.  All told I saved $20 and got it for $60 + tax.

Not gonna start a new thread

FINALLY ALEX! GO CAPS

I have been too fearful/superstitious to publicly jump on the bandwagon, but HELLS YES!  ;D ;D ;D

After practically a whole season of screaming for Grubauer, I'm happy to eat my words as Holtby as been rock solid the past 2 games.

So happy for Alex too...he really deserves this.
