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

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? ...

Re: Star Wars Episode II Attack of the Clones

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. I think Disney are scared of new stories as the sequels perceived as a poorer product to the OT. A rehash of ANH (TFA) broke records so this assures Disney...

Oh, I didn't question Disney milking the cow, I questioned whether Disney is milking too much out of it oversaturating the market which might lead to a decrease in quality. If there indeed are more stand-alones planned, I would want to see them going into other directions. EDIT: I agree with the sen...

It's rumored to be an origin story, dealing with Obi-Wan's life before joining the Jedi Order. While nothing has been officially announced yet, and it might take some ti...

Variety reports that in addition to the stand-alone Obi-Wan Kenobi-movie, it's rumored to be a Boba Fett movie and a Jabba the Hutt story in the works. Heck, it's also rumored that a Yoda movie is being considered. If this is indeed true, it does seem to me that Disney is milking the cow to a too l...

Yes, but the last episode isn't fully canon (well, at least not in the Kelvinverse). Otherwise, I agree. I don't think Enterprise was that bad. And I do like the first version of the theme song (the second is awful). I'm considering picking up the Enterprise box set at some point when its at a dece...
