  1. Of the new movies, I would say Rogue One was rewatchable, TFA is kind of second.... and there is no third.
  2. Alright, what I've always wanted to see, Thor vs Batman. BRING IT ON. Actually, can we have Lady Thor vs Batman... ha ha, I'm thinking of the various Hishe that can come from there already.
  3. You know, reading that board makes me want to watch Bayverse transformers. May be they will have a diplomatic solution for once, like how the real world works. Where the Sith and the Jedi gets together and hug it out.
  4. Yeah... well.... not the same as the original... I mean who is he going to buy? And with what money?
  5. Oh no, the end has come... the post Sideshow Bob era has begun. it will either be glorious... or it will be hiatus for another decade.
  6. I am curious, with a blended wing design like this, why are the engines on the outside? It seems somewhat counterintuitive, wouldn't that just create drag?
  7. Interesting. I hope they succeed with this, and we can start to forget the Bay era crap that has persisted for the last decade plus.
  8. well, I agree that it would not likely happen.... but hey it isn’t out of the question. There can always be a side story that is down and dirty, look at how Fox did with their Marvel content. You can bet some Disney execs have considered the idea at least. The main playground is still very nice, but then there is this gritty dirty corner. Appeal to the audience. Go after a different segment.
  9. Seriously what we need is R rated Star Wars. Let the scoundrels be real scoundrels, let the megalomaniac bad guy be someone that can be feared, who isn’t above unleashing all sorts of horrors and expletives. imagine if Kylo screamed “ frakk you, Dad” as he ran Han through with his lightsaber, that would provide a little more ooomph. and on the good guy side, we get Cassian Andor unchained... ha ha... that would be hilarious. I am on the side of right and I do what it takes to win as he blows up an Imperial depot while causing a ton of collateral damage to nearby Ewok kids. And when the whiny parent comes crying, he uses them as meat shields. i would like to see Disney have the stones to do that.
  10. Vulture.... wooot.... Sony has a second lease on life, they are never going to surrender the rights to Spider-Man.
  11. That's harsh, Finn does have another character trait, he is also a Poe fanboy.... Remember how he was fawning over Poe during that fighter scene about "that's one hell of a pilot?" If they'd only gone ahead and explored that relationship on screen.
  12. See, so you’d take radiation poisoning of JJ Trek.... hahaha. This just really means JJ trek wasn’t that bad... after all, radiation poisoning is more survivable.
  13. Thanks PS for reminding us we are all getting old. You know, this gets the new SW trilogy vibe all of a sudden, try to bring back the good old days because TV and cinema in this age quite frankly sucks. Personally, I rather they bring back the JJ trek in that case.
  14. It's called the magic of the movies. They could turn Portman into a muscle bound freak if needed... I mean look, if they can make Brolin into purple puss, and Poe into Pokeylips, anything is possible. Heck, you could make lady Thor tower over Hemsworth Thor and stomp him into the ground if needed.
  15. I think the bigger problem is the believeability of a competent Tie fighter pilot outside of a Sith. SW has gone such a ways to show the incompetence of the Imperials, it's going to be difficult to see a competent pilot that isn't also a Force wielder. As for the idea of Phasma... I just looked at her as another incompetent Stormtrooper who happened to have a different color palette.
  16. Like others have expressed here, it would've been better if they concentrated on Kylo and Rey story and just shoved TLJ and TROS into a single movie. Cause the rest of it was practically stuff we didn't need to see. Alternatively, a movie about Top Gun Damron and focused exclusively on his flying antics would have been ok too. You can in fact think of a movie where it's about Poe vs an ace Tie Fighter pilot that culminates in the ultimate dog fight at the end where Poe finally kills the antagonist. That might be watchable. Heck, make the Tie ace Finn's older brother. Who is pissed that the younger bro was swayed into joining the evil rebellion.
  17. I wonder though how much would gaming a system like that cost. After all, there is a diminishing point of return there somewhere. Unless.... oh no, Sideshow has farmed out fake reviews to overseas and made a bunch of scripts for Rotten Tomatoes....
  18. Not sure I want to see young Luke. Can you imagine watching him ogling over girls, finding porn videos and such... but eventually settling into frenching his own sister, not sure that's a good fit for Disney, or perhaps considering all the hidden gems in old Disney animation, it's the best fit of all. I think they're better off with the Cassian series that shows him as an amoral terrorist, because remember, one man's terrorist is another man's liberator, ok, toss in a little bit of struggle with having to blow up innocent woman and children with the Stormtroopers, cause he is the protagonist. After all, what distinguishes George Washington from a guy like Bin Laden or the Iranian general that just got blown up, the only difference is history and media. You can easily imagine if GW was running around today trying to free the colonies from the Empire, he'd be vilified as a terrorist, killing law abiding citizens and soldiers trying to help a civilian population, the only difference would be which side you happen to be on.
  19. I think though that Disney has found their particular golden egg at that point. But into recognized franchises, stick B listers into them with locked deals. Then dump them at the end of the contract and repeat. If there are particular fan favorites, find ways to bring them back. It is a good idea. Star Wars will continue to draw, the only thing I object to is the pointless pandering and the need to try to stand out and be different. They shoved KMT into the movie for what I thought was a completely contrived reason, the fans who reacted I think were mostly disappointed with the role she had, which was pointless. It felt like people were trying hard checking a box or something. Conversely, I don’t think I heard many people complain about Donnie or Jiang in Rogue One, which didn’t seem at all unreasonable in the context of the story. I also think a live action trilogy of the original KPTOR would really rock.
  20. Lower Expectations has been met, and TROS has made it... at least in the eyes of most fan. Another redemption story, another billion bucks for Sideshow Bob. All in all, not a bad day's work. Now, to go on hiatus a bit, and see if the TV series does any good, then may be we can push out another movie in a few years like Rogue One.
  21. If it involves $$$, sideshow Bob is down with that. We are also eagerly awaiting the R rated Disney theme park, edgier, pushes against the envelop, where the employees are free to swear at guests, because you know...
  22. But I would venture the dual folding saber was probably a bridge too far for Rey. She probably isn’t into that kind of thing, I figure her for a more meat and potatoes kinda Jedi, a standard version would be enough for her. She might not be able to handle a dual folding type.
