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

I bought it on Wednesday here in the states and I haven't felt an urgency to watch the film itself, which I found very strange, considering I only saw it once in theaters and knew it required multiple viewings for me to get a real good handle on it. That bothers me....hell, I watched the extremely ...

The Eiger Sanction (1975). Clint Eastwood's worst movie. The only upside is that John Williams made the soundtrack which has a few memorable bars. D+

Re: Star Trek - From TOS to Discovery and Beyond

And the last episode of the season was a rush job... There were a few episodes I liked, but overall the series is... uneven is a kind word for it. They should have set it at least 50 years after Voyager instead. Yeah. I thought the series found more stable footing in the middle with episodes 5 thro...

Re: Last Television Show Watched

I've been watching some of Star Trek: Voyager on Netflix. I really didn't like the show when it was aired on Swedish public service, but I liked some of the characters and I stuck to it. One of the best things with streaming is that you can skip episodes you don't like (and with Voyager there are qu...

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

My problem with that is that I see Artoo and Chewie having as much of an emotional connection, if not more, and just didn't buy into Luke brushing off those two, but then responding to a couple minutes of basic, obvious truths from Yoda. I'd have preferred if they dropped the Yoda scene, and earlie...

It (2017). We have an expression in Swedish (it's not that old and I understand it has started to spread to the U.S. as well): Fjortis . While it comes from the age of 14 (the number, 14, is fjorton in Swedish), it's a derogatory word for immature teens. I would describe It as a fjortis horror movi...

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

When I said Yoda's appearance, I meant that he was in the film. I did think he looked slightly off but that was never my big issue with him. I wonder if the mould had been affected by age for it to change the look of the puppet. Of course, I know that! My main point was to further what you said abo...

Yoda did not act that way before or since. And the puppet looked awful and nothing like either in the OT or PT. People involved w...

I've been watching Vikings on HBO. I was surprised that Ragnar Lodbrok is the main character, although much liberty has been taken with the old stories. In the stories, Ragnar was the son of a Swedish king, Sigurd Ring, and not a peasant. The stories were also set many decades earlier than the show....

Ok, so they have a couple more months than I thought. But you're probably right about the push back if they re-shoot. I did think it was weird that they had another one coming so soon. Pretty sure all the new movies have come out in December.
Yes, that's why I think it'll pushed back.
