    The OP was referring to how long it was taking to release the Dana fig...your response when further by correcting the OP that it has been years not months...but now I guess you are adding more criteria into the comparison...you are amusing at best

    She is literally a carbon copy of one of the sisters from the animated film Kubo Two Strings.

    That it exactly what came to mind when she shows up on screen; well, without any of the grace and intimidation factor that made the sisters so memorable.

    I went to the movie theater and besides being treated like dirt and not worthy to grace there presence,  they decided to turn the movie off 20 minutes before it was done! so the person over movies could take a lunch break because someone called off work. so me and about 10 other people did not get to watch it to the end + plus no refunds other then told to contact customer service to see if they might send out a discount coupon. Thanks AMC!

    I'll do what what I always have done, just wait on the torrent to come out to watch the whole movie. there's no place for me in a sick society.

    And they wonder why people decide, with zero remorse, to sail the plundering high seas...

    Finally up on disney+ and watched it last night. Man......I liked Crystal Skull more than this trash heap. This was an awful movie. But hey, Ford doesn't care, he got paid. 

    A piece of theatrical excrement that most certainly earned its status as one of the, if not THE, biggest money losing bombs of all time.  Another feather in the cap of KK's legacy of utter franchise destruction; on the bright side, there is nothing left in Lucasfilm's vault for her to ruin... what's she going to sink her fangs on next... Howard the Duck:lol:

    I don't think he has a choice about the direction KK put the franchise on. She's still in charge, unfortunately.

    That's fair, and foreboding for the viability of the franchise's popularity and profitability... both have cratered since shortly after (the release of TLJ) Disney took over.  The prospects under current (mis)management/"leadership" -- not just Lucasfilm, but everything under the Disney umbrella -- do not engender any optimism for the future.

    Did anyone share this news yet?


    He's passionate about his work, and a loyal company man but the talent is not there. Or be more exact he seems to play it safe. Guess that's what Disney wants. I like to see the guy wow us all with an original live-action project that doesn't have a built in audience of fanatics. 

    Unfortunately, he has abandoned Favreau's vision for Star Wars and, as the absolute lackey that he is, has fully embraced the direction KK set out for Star Wars.  Unless he can prove otherwise (BoBF, Kenobi, Mando season 3, Ahsoka and The Bad Batch certainly weren't it), all roads lead to the sequel trilogy... and forgettable mediocrity that undermines what Lucas created, driving away legacy fans while failing to attract new ones to replace them.

    He was kinda dull here. I know nothing about him previous to this, but he seemed just as bumbling as most bad guys in Star Wars if not worse. I mean this guy couldn’t even command his troops to close a door...

    Characters are only as smart or interesting as the person writing them.  The best description of the Ashoka series' version of Thrawn that I've read is that he is a dumb person's interpretation of a smart person... a 2-dimensional, thinly superficial competence and menace that do not stand up to even the most cursory scrutiny.

  8. Wow, wow, wow, wow..... wow!  87% box office drop Friday to Friday, 78% overall for its second weekend outing.:rofl:

    One of, if not, the worst flops in the history of superhero films on a cost vs returns basis, perhaps even of all time, regardless of genre; heading to an epic financial loss of (nearly/possibly) half a billion dollars during its theatrical run... now THAT's impressive, and has earned it an ignominious place in the annals of movie making...  Well done Disney-Marvel, bravo.:good:

    Stick a fork in it, this turkey is done.

    I i don’t think it’s gonna get quite as much as the Marvels, but with the obviously lowered budget with less effects and even lesser known actors and probably a bunch of nobody’s on the soundtrack there’s a weird chance that this one might break even.

    Agreed.  It'll be lucky to do The Marvel numbers, as I posited.  When it's all said and done, it'll likely do significantly worse than Blue Beetle.

    All these studios are hellbent on driving every single money-printing franchise/IP, that they acquired because they were popular and profitable, into the ground with their obnoxious ideological BS and atrocious writing/story telling until they are all as worthless as what Disney-Lucasfilm did with Star Wars and Indiana Jones.  Then, instead of engaging in healthy introspection and realizing that They Are The Problem causing their failures, they ignore/deny reality and blame the fans.

    I think it will flop

    It will do The Marvels numbers, if it's lucky.  Sony better not have spent even 1/3 what Disney did on their clambake stinker; that way, at least the financial loss won't be as embarrassingly/hilariously bad.

    Bring back Taylor

    It's a different timeline; however, and I'm likely mistaken on this, I seem to remember there being some off-handed easter egg/mention in one of the reimagining movies regarding the launch of the Icarus deep space manned probe, so... who knows?  It could happen in a future installment if the franchise remains self-consistent, competently written and directed (no ham-fisted insertion of THE MESSAGE) and, most important of all for future viability, profitable... judging solely by the first three movies and this teaser trailer, it looks very promising.

  12. Just amazing, quite literally one of the coolest things I've seen in a long time.  And do I detect a slight VF-5000 Star Mirage fighter mode inspired -- infinitely more intricate and polished and contemporary -- design lineage, intentional or not, with this awesome bird of prey?
