The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi (SPOILERS)
« on: December 16, 2017, 07:50 PM »
BTW did Fox still have all of the rights to A New Hope Aliens?  I understand Abrams Edwards and Johnson all want to make their own new freaky designs but NOT including Rodians or Aquilish just seems weird...Canto Bight would have resonated a little more for me with some familiar "faces" in the crowd
I picked up the Art of TLJ yesterday and noted all of Canto Bight concept art scene paintings DO contain Rodians Twi'lek and Gran etc. So, they made an obvious choice or due to rights (again much like Abrams) decided to exclude any OT aliens...it's just sort of weird especially after Lucas did that in the PT all over the place

Was that the Jedi sacred books in the drawer of the Falcon?  Rey took them before she left?

Isn't the whole point of the cave reveal that  She asked to see her parents  and she is shown herself...which could mean on a base level that she took care of herself and doesn't need her parents but I took it as a deeper meaning in that she has no parents and was of the force and the true Chosen One in a way Anakin never could have been...the force willed an Evil one now it willing a Good and Chosen one to restore Peace/Light/Love etc what all of this death and destruction brought on by one poor decision by one misguided Boy who had mommy issues and a forbidden wife

The Last Jedi / Re: TLJ Movie / Figure and Vehicle Choices - SPOILERS
« on: December 15, 2017, 03:54 PM »
I laughed out loud when the Jetpack Maz showed up on screen...mainly because of all of the bitching done about the Jetpack Maz toy

Also including Yoda was a good tip off that Yoda was going to be in the movie...and I thought Ben as well...maybe next flick.  In the same vein as Vader and Bespin Luke were supposed to be in TFA and  got cut

I share a lot of the Canto Bight sentiments...it really was there to build up the relationship of Rose and Finn but it fell flat...and made no sense.  Why not have the hacker be part of the Resistence already and why not just have Finn use his FO knowledge to get into the ship...

I had a little trouble suspending disbelief on the slow moving get away and them just picking off ships one by one instead of full thruster assault or sending out their TIE fleet

The bombing run also had a little suspension of disbelief as well but it was still a cool sequence

Overall though I really really loved it

The 3 scenes I said mesmerized me on Twitter were:

Slicing the Super Duper Mega SD in two...it was awesome and I heard audible gasps in the audience when that happened
Luke getting bombarded by the Super Duper Mega AT-ATs at the end and coming out and brushing off his shoulder
Luke staring at the setting two suns on Ach-To was a fitting end to his physical story...can't wait to see how they use his force ghost in Episode IX

I've heard complaint about Yoda (that was my son's biggest gripe) and the Force Connection thing but I was OK with both


I don't believe Kylo in that Rey was abandoned by 2 drunks...I'm pretty sure the gave is hinting that she is like Anakin Skywalker "The New Chosen One" and was begotten, not made

While I read WoW when if it comes out...I am so happy they went ahead with the show and can tie everything well before probably it comes out...let alone the last book

Reviews are coming in and they are all really positive, I'm itching to talk about this more will wait until you all of have seen it :)

New trailer - can't believe I'm saying this - too much Iron Man? Looks great. Though they pretty much give away the entire story.
and this isn't true at all...it's so much more than the trailer

Just saw Homecoming...it is another great Marvel movie top to bottom, the way they skipped the whole being bitten by a radioactive Spider etc and another Green Goblin story was really well done

Ties into Civil War and the trademark balance of Humor and Action with dashes of comic lore were again tonally so much better than anything cooking right now in any Movieverse

I also loved Keaton's Vulture...and Holland is so great as Peter Parker...homerun!

I saw WW on sunday...I liked it better when it was called Captain America the First Avenger

Holy crap you little fireball you're back from the dead?  I agree it looks awesome

Native (and proud) Rhode Islander here...  Curious what in the world would warrant a class trip to this state?  LOL!

We came to Boston for 9th Grade History class and made a swing down to the Mansions in RI (Breakers in Newport)...don't remember much beyond that
