Re: Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens

Same thing that happened about six years before Return of the Jedi, only not as much fun.

Re: Star Wars Episode IX (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

Anyone else thinking that #9 might be called Return of the Sith?

That, or "Icks"?

Re: Last Television Show Watched

There are some very weird references in it, some political, some not (last week, there was an ESB reference), but they make me wonder. Makes you wonder...? Makes me wonder if they haven't got a clue what to do next, so they're killing time with references and homages while they try to figure out wh...

Re: MOVIES: Indiana Jones

3 has been my favorite for a while, but it has been a loooooong time since I've seen the original. Also, hardly remember the second. I should probably rewatch the series at some point. The third film has some good moments. Connery and Ford work well off each other. That makes it tolerable. The film...

Re: MOVIES: Indiana Jones

Yay. Considering the only good one was the first one, and the only other tolerable one was the third one (saved, barely, by Sean Connery as Henry Sr.), and the second and fourth ones stank on ice, I'm not thinking the chances of #5 being very good are...very good.

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Seriously? Pretty sure, yeah. I forget where I read it but it's supposed to be like a poncho as opposed to cape. Fascinating. I'm going to have to do a little digging on this. That thing just looked like a frillier version of the cape in all the other scenes, not very effective as a poncho.

What do we want? I can speak only for myself, but, it would drastically increase my confidence in the Mickey Mouse Club if they

1) Apologized for making a hash of The Force Awakens

2) Apologized for making Rogue One

3) Decanonizing Jar Jar Binks would be welcome, as well.

There is one thing that might creep into my mind while I'm watching ANH in the future, arising from having seen R1: the amazing inconsistency in Vader's abilities from the "earlier" film to the "later" film. :laugh: I'm certainly glad they didn't stick to the piss-poor "fighting" we got from him in...

That said, I'm not having as much fun with it as I did in the earlier seasons, for reasons I won't go into in details about since you're not caught up. Suffice it to say that I think they're having having some trouble because of the constraints production places on the story. I think you're right. ...
