NON-FICTION: The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi

I ordered this, together with The Art of Star Wars : Rogue One, the other day. While I'm not much of a fan of the movie, I always think it's interesting to follow the creative process. And this book also contains a few examples of artwork that George Lucas approved for Episode VII when he was still ...

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

I feel like their goal of "rule to galaxy" is pretty well-stated throughout both movies, up to and including the point in which they blow up an entire star system in order to take out the Republic all at once [/b]. As far as rushing past the concept of an entire star system being wiped out, I don't...

Re: Star Wars Episode IX (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

While I don't think that Lucas had everything planned out (making Leia into Luke's sister sure wasn't thought out until ROTJ), I still think that he tied the movies within the Original Trilogy quite well. The Prequels lacks somewhat in execution, but storywise it's good and ties in well with the OT....

Re: Last Movie Watched

The last movie I saw is still The Last Jedi . In short, I didn't like it very much. Strange character choices, awful plot, stupidities, disjointed, doesn't mesh with TFA, some of the worst alien designs and animatronics of Star Wars, terrible so-called "humor"and changing the rules. But it has Porgs...

Thanks to the incredibly poor worldbuilding in TFA and TLJ we know next to nothing. The galaxy just seem to have rolled over to the FO that somehow have enough forces to subdue the entire galaxy (I'm not buying the crapiola from Battlefront 2 that mentions "thousands" of stormtroopers which of cours...

I don't want to influence anyone's opinion before they see it, or bring them down, but no. I really really didn't like it. I can't say that about any of the other movies. Even the prequels had something redeeming about them - an element of the story at a minimum. Thanks! :) I'm staying away from sp...
