The Prequel Trilogy / Reboot Episodes I, II & III?
« on: December 26, 2015, 10:09 PM »
Interesting thoughts here:

I know that they would never do it, but it sure would make the movies easier to watch if they were able to put out something that was more like TFA and less like TPM.  Let Darth Maul survive so that Anakin has to defeat him in order to become Palpatine's new apprentice.  Get rid of all the political rhetoric.  Actually have Leia old enough to see and remember her mother as she recounts in ROTJ.  No Lucas level dialogue.  A pod race that isn't like Mario Cart.  And I could go on...

I know that we are still in the midst of the EP7 release and resulting euphoria, but I read this this morning and had to share my feeling of dread:

Veteran Star Wars writer Lawrence Kasdan said in a recent interview that Johnson is going to make "some weird thing" with Episode VIII.  If you've seen Rian's work, you know it's not going be like anything that's ever been in Star Wars," Kasdan said. "You couldn't have three more different people than JJ, Rian, and Colin [Trevorrow, director of Episode 9]. Those movies will have the Star Wars saga as their basis, but everything else will be different."

I'm really hoping that the Executive Producers don't let it get 'weird' and stick with the success they have going with EP7.  Fingers crossed.  17 more months to go...

What character did Simon Pegg play?  I've been avoiding spoiler news for so long that I'm sure there are all sorts of interesting nuggets I'm not aware of.

He was the one the scavengers where trading with that wanted BB8.  Don't know the name...

Leaving for the theater in about 25 minutes.  This will now be the third Star Wars movie opening night viewing I've gone to with BrentS.  Always good to have fellow fans with you for something like this.  I'm just glad that they did away with the midnight premieres.  I'm getting too old for that *sith*!

And Samuel Jackson was terrible too. IMHO.


I joke around with BrentS all the time about SLJ's lines during the Jedi Council scenes.  Awful...

I just want to ask the writers if they ever plan on killing Ward or should I just check out and stop watching now.

Well, I'm already slated to see it Thursday, Friday and Saturday (tickets in hand), so I can easily see this breaking records for opening weekend.  Every theater around my area is sold out, so I have a feeling this is going to be pretty epic.

I'm with you Jeff, every day is a battle.  I used to spend a lot of time on Yahoo but it seems like every other article is about TFA spoilers.  The next five weeks can't go by fast enough...

We ended up getting a PS4 to replace our Wii.  My sons are 10 and 11 and they have really enjoyed playing the new console.  But aside from the Lego games and Infinity, there really aren't too many other titles for them other than sports or shooting games.  They are pretty content playing Infinity, MLB, Minecraft and Lego though.

I tell you what, the Jets put a whooping on the Blackhawks tonight for sure.  Going to be fun to watch all season.

For some of the inconsistencies or plot holes, I would really like to see them have some flashbacks with Rex revisiting the end of the Clones Wars.  Would be a way to fill in the gaps of what we were given in the Lost Missions and what we are seeing now.  Don't know the legal logistics of whether Disney can do that since TCW was a Cartoon Network show, but would still  be better than what we are getting so far.

Torres gets 41 game suspension.  Can't say I'm surprised or sympathetic.  About time this goon gets a substantial punishment...

Has anyone gotten this release yet and started playing.  The boys were starting their Christmas lists and I was curious just how good it is.

I also noticed on Best Buy today that there are some Infinity 3.0 Expansion Packs.  I think they are still pre-order, but one pack looked like it was a cart-style racing game that utilized the Infinity characters.

I recently had the itch to get back into competitive sports after sitting on the sidelines and coaching my sons' teams for many years.  After high school and patella tendon replacement surgery, I couldn't really play high impact sports without the fear of injuring my knee again.  I played sand volleyball for many years (and had to have ACL replacement while playing) and 12" softball, but could never find a rec baseball team that I was able to compete on.  Baseball was always my favorite sport growing up and always wished I could have continued to play.

We moved to a different town about a year and a half ago and I caught wind of an over 40 baseball league.  I finally ended up catching a game this past weekend and think that with a bit of practice I could compete again.  So I'm wondering, is there anyone else out there that is still playing rec sports like baseball, basketball, hockey, etc. and are you able to compete and have fun?  Specifically I'm looking for any of my over 40 brethren's experiences, but I'd like to hear from everyone.  Thanks guys.
