The truth about Rey's parents...
The truth spoken by Kylo, or a lie to confuse and/or sway her?

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

Vibroblade? Now that's a name I have not heard in a long time...a long time. Your assessment is pretty much the same as mine. Aside from leaving out the original characters though. But I would have done it very differently. I wanted to see Luke be a serious participant in Rey's training and the war ...

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

Would it be legitimate to say that Luke was vastly underused as well? My biggest disappointment with TFA was its underusing of Luke, and his lack of screen time and dialogue. This film gave us an entirely unexpected evolution of Luke Skywalker and his path on that island took too long to bring him b...

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

These Twitter reviews for The Last Jedi, all short and sweet and completely devoid of spoilers, read as phenomenal. Did I post earlier in this thread, much earlier, that I was devoid of excitement and that nothing I had seen had so far impressed me in the lead-up to the film? Never mind all of that....

Justice League. I knew I wanted to see this even despite the complaints and bad reviews so I went in expecting it to be a mess.

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 ...
