    Just saw some details on Disney's upcoming "Star Wars Land," sounds really cool. Doesn't open until 2019 though.

    Disney’s upcoming “Star Wars”-themed lands at its Anaheim and Orlando resorts will be set in a “remote frontier outpost” that hasn’t been seen in any of the films in the franchise.

    The company showed off artwork of the lands during a panel discussion at its Star Wars Celebration in Orlando on Saturday, and said the new location would be “somewhere on the Outer Rim — lying on the edge of the Unknown Regions.”

    A post on the Disney Parks blog said:

    “The remote village was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes, but the prominence of the outpost has been bypassed with the rise of hyperspace travel.”
    Speaking at the panel discussion, Disney Imagineer Scott Trowbridge said it’s the kind of location that draws “the smugglers, the bounty hunters, the rogue adventurers looking to crew up, the people who don’t to be found ― basically all the interesting people.”

    The company also revealed an image of what looked like a marketplace, which will likely be part of numerous merchandising locations:

    A few years ago I was in the grand old bazaar in Istanbul. It looked similar, minus the dudes in alien rubber masks I guess.

    A good point, I would say a 5/10 is a just ok (50%), but I find I need a scale that has a larger percentage of low scores, 'cause I'm just a jerk that way.
    5/10 is just barely ok, 6/10 is better than average, 7/10 is good, good enough to recommend, but not great, 8 or 9/10 are pretty damn good, for sure good enough for a recommend and 10/10 would be the best movie I ever saw, everyone must see this.(so far I have none in this category) I would have to say at this moment in time that my most favorite movie would be Millers Crossing, and I would give it a 9.5/10 rating. I truly believe that it is a masterpiece, but that probably is just me. That should give you an idea of where I'm coming from, 'cause my opinion is so important.

    Yeah, I heard about that yesterday. People are already saying that he should skip directing, and instead narrate the whole thing himself, Arrested Development style.

    I loved Star Wars, and I still like Star Wars, but I think origin stories are where I draw the line. At this point, I just can't imagine another actor portraying Han (or Lando etc.) and me getting into it, especially a largely unknown young actor who was born after the original trilogy. Han is Harrison Ford's character and watching somebody else try to channel Ford doesn't sound like something I want to watch.

    Yeah, maybe so about Han. But Donald Glover (Community) as Lando Calrissian - this I would pay to see alone.

    //But I'll probably download it anyway.

    New trailer!

    Maybe don't watch it if you wanna go in unspoiled. It does present at least 3 major plot points, tho it doesn't reveal how they are resolved.

    Just bought my tickets. Man, it looks kind of dark from that trailer.

    I think it's pretty likely that they're going for a similar tonal transition from the first film of the new trilogy to the second as they did with Empire Strikes Back. However, while I'm okay with them echoing the OT, I hope that the film won't be quite as much of a copy as The Force Awakens was; I enjoyed the latter, but it did copy too much from A New Hope without sufficiently making the things it was copying its own.

    Certainly a lot of similarities to Empire, yeah. The hero goes off to some remote planet to learn from the old Jedi master, but is pulled back when the baddies attack her allies, and is then offered to join the dark side.

    The Last Jedi is coming to cinemas here today, I'm planning to see it this weekend.

    Metacritic average: 85! Not bad.

    Seems to have almost exactly the same ratings as The Force Awakens, for whatever that's worth.

    This seems appropriate here. Don't worry it's a parody of another video so it's not gay erotica.

    Where in the Star Wars timeline did this epic dance-off event occur?

    Just came back from seeing The Last Jedi! It was good. It's very very pretty, and they haven't shown all the nicest shots in the trailers. Often because they'd be too spoilery. There's a lot of colored lighting and reflective surfaces, and I'm kind of a sucker for that. It goes quite easy on the action scenes for the first half of the movie, which results in more emotional weight to them when they do show up in the second half. There was also a casino scene, which I didn't see because I had to go to the bathroom then. Speaking of the casino scene, I do have ONE BIG GRIPE with this movie, and the casino scene is part of that.

    That whole "disable tracking so they can hyperjump away" plot? Was that really neccessary? Since the plan doesn't work out it feels like they could've completely cut that out and the movie would've functioned just as well. Everyone would've ended up where they ended up anyway? It just muddles the storyline with filler that pads the movie out by another 30 minutes. Even worse, it makes Poe and Commander Laura Dern needlessly butt heads and have a whole big thing, that also ends up not mattering in the end. On the plus side, that whole sidestory did introduce Rose, who I liked, and it finally gave Phasma her big actionscene, and it gave Finn something to do I guess? But yeah, eh, not worth it. The movie would've been tighter and the story less muddled without it.

    But yeah, overall I had a good time. Even though there's some fat that could've been trimmed off to make the story tighter, the core components work well. All the Rey and Kylo stuff is good, and they actually managed to make Luke interesting, and feel like he had evolved since Ep.6.

    Was it better than the real life space saga of Oumuamua?

  22. #422
    It was pretty good. It felt a little rougher around the edges than TFA, but it subverted a hell of a lot more of my expectations. When they were showing off the snow planet and Snoke torturing Rey in the trailers I was expecting pretty full-on ESB and aside from being a bit dark at times (in terms of the good guys seemingly being fucked) it wasn't anything like that at all. And for being "dark" it sure as hell had a lot of action and humor in it.

    Since it's not a remake of New Hope, I fully expect Star Wars fans to hate it.

    I thought it was pretty terrible.

    It did one or two interesting things, admittedly, but it had so much pure junk in it I was bored almost all the way through.

    And the humour, if that's what you want to call it, was mostly cringe worthy.

    I still liked Kylo though.

    Yeah I gotta say it didn't remind me of Empire at all, but one scene in particular (Rey's meeting with Snoke, while the Rebels are being attacked) did give off heavy ROTJ-vibes.

    That scene also reminded me of Flash Gordon, with the set and costume design.
