    Andor

    I'm wondering if they are the children of the miners that were used as labor-- either indigenous, or left behind after the accident. While they are tribal, their clothes are manufactured and their gear is repurposed technology, Maturity-- yes, exactly. While the lack of cameo/easter eggs is different, it's just in general more somber and isn't going out of its way to be cute. The closest thing to cute is the droid, but even he seems to have some trauma in his past lol. And yes, the prop community is going nuts in excitement to see the first live-action version of the Briar Pistol

    Doesn’t quite track with his line about “being in the fight” since he was six years old from R1, but they may be retconning that to be figurative.

    Well that was super interesting. It’s feeling a little piecemeal and takes the first three episodes to come together and make sense with all the individual parts— but I have to say it’s the most mature, both tonally and in content, SW to date. It almost feels like this was and original story adapted to Andor/SW… which may not be a bad thing. This may also be the first Star War since Empire Strikes Back to not expend half its energy reminding you it’s a Star War with countless callbacks, Easter eggs, winks, nudges, and cameos. Something else I really appreciate. Not to say they weren
  4. They shot on the volume, the LCD stage developed for Mandalorian. It may visually work, but when you have a massive FX load with less than forgiving footage, it gets over processed. Also, Marvel’s timelines and their need to have carte Blanche approval is killing the FX industry.

    I agree— and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that this is because it’s the show with both the highest budget and the least amount of studio interference and lowest level of star power.

    Cobra Kai

    Don't let it happen again!
  7. Essentially, yes. We both work from home. She currently has a 2 bed room, I have a 3 bedroom, we can share a bedroom obv, but we both need offices. She’s also coming in with all her stuff— so it will still be a guest room he could stay in, but it’s also going to be her office. We’ll both put stuff in storage too. We have been perusing new places, but we’d end up spending a lot more in moving fees and higher rent.
  8. Month or so away from kid having his own car. Seven months away from him turning 18. With no more legal custody schedule to adhere to, I know he’d prefer to live with me… but at the same time, said car is insured with his mother, and I know she’d prefer he was living there. Thing is, work has been slow, which means money isn’t great, which means I need to cut down on expenses. Not having the kid, and having my girlfriend move in to split expenses would let me save back up the money I spent during Covid year one that was supposed to help me buy a house. I really feel weird planni
  9. I actually loved the Stormbringer bits, with it slowly eeking into frame… The plot hole I hated was that they make a thing out of Stormbringer sucking at bifrosting, so they have to get roundabout in their traveling… until it’s inconvenient and Thor just used Zues ‘ lightning bolt to teleport? With no explanation? Also, with no lightning bolt or bifrost how did Jane show up at the end?

    Cobra Kai

    Oh you’re not wrong, I think I just hit capacity. My previous post, about them drifting too far from the original premise, is really hitting home for me.

    Cobra Kai

    I’m trying, but my brain suddenly has decided this show is dumb hahaha.

    She-Hulk!

    Agreed, Soider-Man has been the only one to bring the feels.
  13. I didn’t hate it, loved Natalie Portman enjoying herself in a movie, but overall I feel like this was a sequel to Ragnarok and didn’t really feel like it carried any of the weight of what Thor experienced in Infinity War or Endgame. It also greatly suffered from being shot on the Volume stage, just like Obi-Wan did.

    She-Hulk!

    I think it’s cute and funny, but my not-caring from a lack of real stakes continues with your post-Endgame MCU experience.
  15. I’ve tried reading up on this and always get confused— but does the Royal family have any political power?
  16. Time for my champagne problems... Currently working on two different jobs. The first is a rewrite, and the company it is for is patently awful. I may have mentioned this before, but the CEO is the kind of guy who changes his mind about the direction of entire films because of whatever he watched over the weekend. The only time in my life I stopped my own pitch on a project was when this guy, halfway through my pitch decided that he wanted it to suddenly be a Christmas movie. He's done this twice. This company also has this plan where they buy scripts from non-union writers then
  17. Given that we see a protocol droid earlier with the trade federation, I always assumed Anakin got his hands on a kit-build of some sort. But yeah, stupid George.
  18. I randomly remembered how spooked I was as a kid by the commercials for the Time Life Mysteries of the Unknown book series. I’m retrospect, that was 100% the inspiration for the X-Files opening credits, if not the whole show. My mom would never spring for them. So I went on eBay and bought a bunch.

  20. 1. Keaton, just because that movie was such an event and moment for me as a kid. 2. Kevin Conroy. He counts and is the best. 3. Pattinson, if we’re being real, probably my actual live action favorite. 4. Ben Affleck. He had a great look and vibe, but Zack Snyder having a fundamental misunderstanding of the character tanked it. 5. Bale. I never liked, or actually even understood, how he and his movies are so revered. It was all very meh. 6. Clooney and Kilmer— ehhhh. Honestly, the older I get, the more I just feel like Adam West was perfect.

  22. It’s not his age it’s that he looks older than dirt.
  23. I always picture Jonathan Banks in the cushiest trailer possible in the desert and they deliver him via golf cart right to his mark:
