Re: Last Movie Watched

"The Rookie" (1990) starring Clint Eastwood and Charlie Sheen. Clintans (as he's affectionately known in Sweden) last cop movie should've been a Dirty Harry movie. It wouldn't have been to hard turning it into one and would've been a better last entry in the series than "The Dead Pool...

Re: Live-action: "Star Wars: Andor" ('Rogue One' prequel)

YouTube Star Wars: Andor Trailer Interesting trailer. A few thoughts: * Appears as if Stellan Skarsgård will play a larger role than I thought * It's great to see Coruscant, and particularly the Senate, again! * Had no idea that Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker) and Mon Mothma (Genevieve O'Reilly) woul...

Re: Live-action: "Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi" *Spoilers allowed*

What do we think from here? Is that the end for Kenobi and Vader in live action series? Or will they find a way to continue? You might have seen some of the info going around recently that this started out as a movie and that the writer had a trilogy in mind. From what he said, they used his work f...

Re: How to find Novels by Era

There will be no more 'Legends' novels. Disney don't want this universe to continue.

I believe that Christie Golden had complete the first two novels from that series....
