Re: Spoilers: So what is the situation in the galaxy?

Thanks to the incredibly poor worldbuilding in TFA and TLJ we know next to nothing. The galaxy just seem to have rolled over to the FO that somehow have enough forces to subdue the entire galaxy (I'm not buying the crapiola from Battlefront 2 that mentions "thousands" of stormtroopers which of cours...

Re: Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

Does that mean that it was good? Unfortunately no. Upon my first viewing I have to say that there are things to like, quite a few things not to like a few things that the filmmakers had forgotten about since TFA as there's a serious continuity error (the Knights of Ren seems to have been completely...

Re: Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

I don't want to influence anyone's opinion before they see it, or bring them down, but no. I really really didn't like it. I can't say that about any of the other movies. Even the prequels had something redeeming about them - an element of the story at a minimum. Thanks! :) I'm staying away from sp...

I take it that you didn't like it?

Re: Star Trek - From TOS to Discovery and Beyond

Star Trek has always been about optimism for the future, of teamwork and exploration. And there's no reason this show can't get into those things as it proceeds. Again, I don't want to judge the entire show in the content of just a few episodes. I think its fair game to pursue darker, war-themed st...

Re: Star Trek - From TOS to Discovery and Beyond

I'm open to something darker. I don't mind that. But it feels like they're barreling forward haphazardly and without much effort to allow the characters or story to breathe. Star Trek has always been about optimism for the future, of teamwork and exploration. What we've gotten so far is more of the...

Re: Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

Kylo is for sure going to change sides and go good. Rey, not sure. I doubt she goes dark side. One reason I think Rey will go dark is that this essentially is the TESB of the sequel trilogy and where things will look bleak at the end. If she indeed turns, then perhaps Rey is saved in IX (possibly b...

This is what I think will have happened at the end of TLJ in broad strokes: Rey will have turned to the Dark Side and joined Snoke (I believe Snoke's words in the beginning of the trailer actually are aimed at Rey, not Kylo) while Kylo will have returned from it, possibly following the death of Lei...
