  1. Someone cut a Spagetti Western trailer out of the Mandalorian and Jon Farveau reposted it:
  2. This is some interesting stuff and pretty damning for Disney if true https://www.reddit.com/r/saltierthancrait/comments/eisnd8/heres_what_ive_been_told_from_a_source_that/
  3. The fobs do not have an unlimited range. The news of the mando defeating the ATST is what brought the bounty hunter to the planet in the first place and THEN the fob was used to get the precise location on that planet. There are a few things that make this evident. Firstly, the Mandalorian is a bounty hunter himself (or was) and knows about fobs and presumably how they work. If he knew he could be tracked across the galaxy indefinitely by any bounty hunter with a fob, why would he even attempt to hide? Next, if all the fobs were perfectly transponding their position the entire time, why
  4. My comment wasnt directed at anyone in particular. I was just speaking in general towards the negativity (not even relating to this thread). Its just funny that if people used the same critical lens they use to dissect all the new material and did the same thing with the OT theyd realize you could tear those movies to shreds just as easily. Especially when it comes to minute details about the plot that are really inconsequential to the overall picture. Like are we really sure those are actual gps locators that lead Mando straight to the bounty? And if so, would we have even complained abou
  5. Hearing people complain about the Mandalorian makes me think no one will ever be satisfied with new Star Wars no matter how good it is. As someone else said, the first 2 episodes are better than all of The Last Jedi. Personally, I've been waiting for something exactly like this since Lucas sold to Disney. I know we're only two episodes in but it has everything I want out of Star Wars. I'm extremely happy were getting "Gunsmoke" like serial western episodes. I feel like a kid again watching these... and almost every character they introduce on screen, no matter how minor (Werner Hertzog or Nick
  6. When I first saw this I read it as Racist Leia and thought what an odd and inappropriate idea to save the sequel trilogy. Although I cant imagine recasting her would have a much better reaction than making her racist.
  7. Totally agree. Taika Waititi could easily take over and youd barely notice. In fact I actually think it would be a better fit.

    Cyberpunk 2077

    William Gibson commented on the trailer... https://mobile.twitter.com/greatdismal/status/1005958197654351872 Brings to mind a bitter George Lucas
  9. I personally think they should do a Lando origin film in the style of a 70s blaxploitation flick and let Donald Glover write and direct. Theyll never do it because they have to stay within the SW stylistic framework but Id watch the hell out of it. Imagine a Black Dynamite set in the Star Wars universe. It would be amazing.
  10. Please write a Star Wars script. Kthxbye
  11. That may be true, But didnt Chris Miller and Phil Lord have final say over the original casting? I dont necessarily trust their judgement on this...
  12. For me it's not that he doesn't look like Ford. He slightly resembles him enough to be passable. It's that his voice and inflections sound nothing like Ford. The biggest thing that throws me off is the voice which I still don't understand why they didn't cast Anthony Ingruber in this (it was rumored he had auditioned for the role). He HAD everything down pat. I mean just look and hear him nail a young Ford in this Age of Adeline flashback:
  13. I wanna see a gigantic conjunction of every nightly prequel fan theory converged into the next two films. Naboo is Dagobah confirmed!
  14. I thought X2 did a pretty good job of adapting God loves, Man kills so to retread that would seem pretty unnecessary. I guess since they never got Dark Phoenix right it makes sense they're going to try to redo it. But at this point I just want something more fresh. And Yea, they'd obviously have to do some heavy revisions if they wanted to adapt Grant Morrisons run. Perhaps leaving out the womb strangulation part and having it be something less absurd like the twins being born and Cassandra dies at birth because the imbecile cord is wrapped around her neck and suffocates but then her concousne
  15. That's why when I read they were adapting Age of Apocalypse right after Days of Future Past it had me worried because the premise is almost exactly the same just with different characters and has to do with time travel and the ripple effect. And now the reports are they're going to do the Phoenix Saga for the next one, I honestly hope they don't but I don't know what else they would do. Besides Age of Apocalypse, Days of Future Past and the Dark Phoenix Saga what else is worth adapting? Grant Morrisons New X-Men run? But the tone is so different it wouldn't fit with the current incarnation.
  16. This is a nitpick but it really bugs me that Singer insists on using that stupid ass wire work for stunts in all his movies. Example: Days of Future Past had Beast jumping all over the place and hanging from a chandelier and it looked so freaking awful, like out of a cheap Kung Fu movie. Then in Apocalypse we have Wolverine doing these weird ass jumps that so very clearly look like bad wire work. I don't get how he can be so competent in so many other things and get that wrong. Also, I liked CGI beast in first class a lot more than Singer's god awful "practical" prosthetics, but I'm probably a
  17. Well I enjoyed it and I'm not ashamed to admit it. Was it the weakest of the new X-Men movies? Yes, but I think it's better than all 3 of the Old X-Men movies, even X2. If you disagree with me go rewatch them, they haven't aged well and they're basically Wolverine movies. With that said I think I'm the only one who really disliked Wolverines cameo in this it felt tacked on and cheap. Not to mention extremely cheesy. The tone just didn't fit the movie. They tried to do too many things and introduce too many characters. Also the movie logic doesn't seem to be as consistent as the other movies
  18. Who even are you?!!! It has to be one of the worst high budget marvel movies ever made!
  19. My favorite line of the entire movie is when Spidey says "Man, that thing doesn't follow the laws of physics at all!!" Referring to Cap's gravity defying shield.
  20. This thread not withstanding it amazes me how salty people are and that they will literally complain about anything but then go on and see a movie like Batman V Superman and be like " why is everyone hating on this movie? I don't get it! This is like the best superhero movie ever!" The trailer was effing amazing. I don't know how it's possible but I'm actually more excited for this than I was after I saw the force awakens trailer.
  21. When Snyder strictly sticks to a single comic book narrative like 300 or Watchmen I think his movies can be pretty awesome. I started to dislike him when I saw Man of Steel. the reason 300 and Watchmen worked is because he literally just took the comic panels and used them as storyboards. So Frank Miller and Alan Moores works went mostly unscathed. The problem with MoS and BvS is they're like greatest hits volumes of comic book history without really any effort to connect or streamline the story structure and have it make a whole lot of sense. I think a big reason BvS is making so much mone
  22. Wait a minute... Is Justus actually defending a Zack Synder film?
  23. This happens with pretty much every hyped up movie. It's just marketing. Harrison Ford said he loved the script to Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. We all know how that turned out. Read another article that said there was a standing ovation when they screened Batman v Superman to WB execs and that movie looks terrible. They're just carefully crafted marketing techniques disguised as reliable anecdotes from celebrities. I don't think Episode 8 is gonna suck, but I don't really get excited with these types of articles anymore.
