Re: "EVERYTHING THAT HAS TRANSPIRED HAS DONE SO ACCORDING TO MY DESIGN" ...even the Rebel Alliance?

I'm not sure if it is now, or ever was canon, but in the Force Unleashed game, Vader and the Emperor manipulate your character in to helping bring the Alliance together so they can wipe out their enemies in "one swift stroke". So, he's kind of telling the truth when he says "even the Rebel Alliance...

Re: Star Wars Episode IX (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

JJ was a producer on TLJ so he didn't stop it. Disney knew the direction Rian was going and didn't stop it. It's not like they didn't know a thing or JJ either. He knew exactly what he was doing. I loved what Rian did. Did anyone really know anything about the Emperor when he died? No. One should b...

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

So after we are lead to believe that Maz accompanied Han, Chewie, and Finn back to the Resistance Base after the First Order destroyed her castle on Takodana in TFA, so that we can accept that Poe would have met her despite zero screen time together, we should also believe that Poe genuinely introd...

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

I feel like that is kind of a huge deal and it was explained and moved past in a manner of like 10 seconds. Kind of crappy story telling there. Also, to the OP's question....I'm in the same boat. I had this discussion today with a friend of mine who saw TLJ on opening night with me. We both think t...

Porgs were good but that quivering lip Porg as Chewie was about to munch one was a shot too much - the guilt inducing stares of the crowd was enough. That was the shot that sealed my eternal love for Porgs because it's the exact face my dog makes when he's begging. The giant eyes, the slight tilt t...

Now in the TLJ, which takes place immediately after TFA, the New Republic is completely over-run? When did that happen? In a galaxy full of planets, a few are destroyed and the whole republic collapses?
The entirety of the New Republic government was destroyed in the Hosnian system.

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 forgotten about).

Justice League - 5/10 An improvement over BvS, SS, and MoS but still just a shell of a movie. The CG was laughably bad throughout most of the movie, which is really great when every character in the movie requires CG at some point. Ezra Miller and Jason Momoa are the best parts of the movie.

What will happen in IX? If what I speculate is true, will Rey be redeemed or will both she and Ben Solo die, ending the Skywalker line and the Jedi? I believe it could be the latter, but could it really go that dark?

Blade Runner 2049 - A-

It gets a minus only for being almost 3 hours long. Otherwise it was a fantastic, absolutely gorgeous movie that holds up as one of the greatest sequels ever made.
