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...

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

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...

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

After seeing the trailing, I get this uneasy feeling that Rey and Kylo are going to be revealed as brother and sister........ :oops: Don't know about that though they might be related.

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

I think if all we saw was Rey handing the lightsaber to Luke and Grumpy Luke swinging it exactly the way he did the first time he held one in Ben Kenobi’s place in ANH I would’ve been more satisfied..... Personal preference, but I know that's a surprise I would rather have in the theater than in a ...

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

A good, but not great, trailer. I guess I'm too afraid to hope after TFA... Before I went spoiler-free (see how well that turned out), there was a rumor going about that I didn't lend much credence to then, but that I now believe might be somewhat correct: That Luke refuses to train Rey and that Rey...

I'll check out the second episode tonight, but unless its significantly better, I'm not gonna feel too bad about not continuing with CBS All Access. It's on Netflix here which I'm paying for anyway.

We don't have to wait many more days, ol'Tov. It's most probably going to be released during Monday Night Football on Columbu...

Looking at that pic, it looks like it folds out (on all sides) from a circular shape. The inside looks like all Imperial / 1st Order large ships / planet killers. Does this mean it is another Starkiller base, so keeps in the tradition of the rebuilding, what is destroyed in the 1st of the trilogy? ...

Well, two scenes were poorly re-edited: The chase after Zam and the Yoda vs Dooku duel. Shots were rearranged (and now makes little sense), but the music wasn't so it's chopped up.

Re: General Discussion Stand-Alones

Considering other movie franchises (Marvel & DC) these days are releasing more than one movie in a year, LFL isn't milking the cow excessively.
