  1. I don’t think it was ever actually called out in the early ones that Batman doesn’t kill people? I’m guessing it’s a big point in the comics but film wise I didn’t think they really established it as a trait for him until Batman Begins. That’s what threw me with the Affleck version, after not killing was such a big part of the character in the last three, didn’t feel right seeing him going on a bit of a kill spree.
  2. 1. Bale 2. Keaton 3. Pattinson 4. Kilmer 5. Affleck 6. Clooney I actually think Kilmer could have been the best with a few films or under a different director. Same with Affleck to a degree. Clooney just ends up playing himself in everything so he goes right to the bottom.
  3. Yeah this 1000%. Martin essentially moving on is very telling, his obviously just re-writing the books based off the reaction to the shows. I think the show followed the planned ending to the books a lot more than fans would like to admit. But also I’m just sick of all the franchises at this point. This, a million Marvel things, Lord of the Rings, more Star Wars all coming out at the same time. And more of each to come. There is so much of it now it’s kind of hard to be excited by any of it.
  4. As Zathras pointed out it’s not happening all the time (and don’t disagree Kylo’s redemption was lame or unearned) but I don’t agree that the take away was no one can come back from the dark side at all. It was that Luke proved Yoda wrong, that someone that far down the path come back. It isn’t a once and done deal. The prequels in a way were just reinforcing how Yoda/the Jedi was wrong but it’s also likely Yoda thought it was unprecedented because he never dealt with it. And someone who doesn’t believe in attachments probably isn’t going to even bother try bring someone back.
  5. And the OT ends on a dark side coming back to the light. Admittedly I forgot that quote but the OT wasn’t hammering home that you can’t come back from the Dark Side, it was showing you can.
  6. When does Yoda say you can’t come back from the Dark Side? That would of been a stupid statement for him to make even before Kylo and Reva existed on paper. Vader’s redemption was seen as a miracle because of how far he’d fallen and how long he’d be gone. Kylo was conflicted from the start and his redemption played out a lot differently. Reva wasn’t a case of a Jedi who was seduced by the dark side - she was never able to become a Jedi and was just trying to find a way to get back and kill/hurt the person who took everything from her. Anyway, the fundamental trope of Star
  7. You can do both though. I think exploring new characters and time periods is definitely needed particularly in live action but exploring the further adventures of Luke as an animated series like Rebels would be a good way to spend more time with those characters. Then you pretty much void the whole deepfake/recasting issue and they don’t need keep forcing Luke cameos into the TV shows.
  8. That would be perfect - or even just the adventures of the OG 3 post RoTJ would be cool to see in that format.
  9. Not really that interested but I might check it out later on down the track. I enjoy TCW and Rebels but I also have to be in a certain mood for the animated shows - which I’m usually taken right out of once a droid does some goofy s**t.
  10. Yeah but I love the idea of Anakin getting back to his castle, jumping into the bacta tank and then having some relatable shower thoughts of ‘damn it that’s what I should have said’
  11. Yeah I agree it was probably a little too familiar - though as soon as they cast Hayden I had a feeling that was the exact scene they were going to do and I’m not gonna lie, I loved the original scene so i didn’t care that they essentially adapted for Obi Wan. Just hopefully they don’t decide to do it again for an Ashoka flashback in her series.
  12. That was the clear influence - I think they loved the scene so much they wanted to adapt it. But even some of the shots are directly lifted from that scene. But they did give it a different edge to the Rebels scene, where that was more sad, this was heartbreaking, horrific and creepy. It also made me realise what a great job Hayden had done performing vocally similar to James Earl Jones when they were mixing the voices alongside.
  13. A few things I wasn’t a fan of in the final, don’t think they should have intercut the duel with the hunt for Luke and just left the scene in it’s entirety for after. It also wouldn’t of felt that Obi Wan was able to get to Tatooine in literally 5 minutes. (Too much of the JJ influence there maybe). But all problems were for naught since they completely delivered on a scene I’ve basically wanted to see since before the prequels. Fan service it might be but the long shot of Obi Wan and Vader before the fight is my favourite Star Wars moment ever. The duel itself I also think delivered but
  14. Yeah it just seemed in the 4th episode that the glow from the lightsabre was amped up a bit more than it has been recently, more than this weeks for example. There was one bit where Obi Wan was in a corridor and the whole screen felt over saturated with blue. (Though probably worth noting I do live with someone who likes to f**k the colour settings on the TV, so it could be that…)
