Re: Last Movie Watched

Thor: Ragnork or however you spell it. Meh. I was very disappointed. Thor was pretty much my favorite Avenger and I enjoyed the first 2 Thor films, but this one felt very different. First I'll say that the first 5 minutes were downright fantastic. But then it dragged on and got too goofy for me. I d...

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

Has anybody noticed this yet? Those ships flying over the surface of that redplanet are just B-Wing remakes. Still nothing new as far as ship and fighter designs from the sequels, I'm afraid. Oh, I'll still be there on opening day expecting to love the movie, but this was why TFA underwhelmed me wit...

Re: Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (NO SPOILERS)

Back in 1998 we got our first full--and mind blowing--trailer for TPM about 6 months before the premier. We're about 2.5 months away this time. What's Lucasfilm waiting for? 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...

Hypothetically, if the war had not been completely orchestrated by Darth Sidious, but if in fact the 2 sides had truly been commanded by seperate masterminds... If neither side was led by a Sith lord... Or one side was and the other side wasn't... Or if both sides were led by Sith not in league with...

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

Top Three Favorite Star Wars films on my list: Empire Revenge Rogue Interesting. Might be my top 3 also, though I'd have Revenge at the top. Revenge sure had a lot more action, fight scenes, and intensity, but Empire will probably always come first to me due to the nostalgia and the lifelong love e...

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

I like the score though it was lacking in some areas. Especially the title scene. When "Rogue One" appeared on the screen the music was too similar IMO to some of the music in cheesy low budget 80's sci-fi like Adventures in the Forbidden Zone. However, the rest of the music was quite good, however ...
