  1. Whelp. I lost a little over $100 with the NY scam site. They strung me along with fake store credit. Guess I'm not as burned as others.
  2. I don't think Obi-wan should be fighting Vader in his suit at all until their encounter on the Death Star, but my fan status for this series has waned so much due to its treatment over the years by Lucas, and now Disney that I can't care much anymore. This is just whatever to me.
  3. I watched it. When I started it I was expecting this movie to have all of the story that was in the 1984 version. Once they meandered a bit on Caladan I figured this movie wasn't going to make it and yup, it doesn't. The weird technological anachronisms in Dune get to me more than in most sci-fi stories, but I know I need to just ignore that thought in my head as I watch it. Okay movie. Did not blow me away, but maybe its the deju-vu I got from seeing the 1984 Lynch version first or the above mentioned anachronisms that brought it down a bit for me. I am glad Paul seems to have more misgivings about his origins this time around. Its been a while since I've seen the original, but in the Lynch version I got a sense that all the characters, including Paul, thought that he was some sort of prophesized savior all along. That sucked most of the tension out of the original, but I still liked it enough. The new version still has Paul quickly becoming a super being, but there was a little more pushback here which was better. Also glad all that internal dialogue exposition was taken out. Show, don't tell, is the best for movies.
  4. Guess I'm a little late to figure out what was happening, but I was relying upon the notification emails to help me when pre-orders started. Not receiving anything now.
  5. Yup. Already getting thoughts of 1987's Masters of the Universe in my head.
  6. I was tempted to get this but with missing content I'm sticking with my 2015 JP blu-ray set.
  7. I take it Blitzway, the Voltron producers, want to know you're serious about your pre-order.
