  1. More info keeps "leaking" on LFL's disappointment with Lord and Millar. Turns out they weren't getting the coverage that was expected. Limited camera set ups, not enough angles, not enough range of delivery from the actors. I'm guessing LFL learned from what went wrong on RO and wanted to limit their exposure by having enough footage that they could basically take over in editing...I guess that didn't happen and Lord and Miller were let go.

    I thought this was the weakest of all the showings on Netflix so far. This was the entry point to the Netflix Marvel universe for my girlfriend and I've never seen someone roll their eyes so often. I think a lot of the problems with this series was Danny's character. What were his motivations? Why did he leave Kung Lau? Why not address that straight away? Why was his power level so erratic from episode to episode. One episode he's an untouchable Matrix type, next episode he's getting his ass handed to him by some schlub in a mobile shipping container. Why did they water down the Hand f
  3. I'm 100 hours in with no desire to rescue the princess...yet. Like Wader, I want to finish side quests and shrines and continue exploring. This game rewards the inquisitive mind like no other - something Nintendo is bringing to the new Mario game if the trailers and hands-on reviews are to be believed.
  4. I got it on switch and have been figuring out ways to get out of work and play it ever since. Beautifully realised world and an absolute pleasure to explore...never actually feels like a chore or a grind which lots of games have become over recent years.
  5. He's been alive since TPM, he basically escaped after being cut in half and hid away for 10 years going mad in the process. The clone wars introduced his two brothers Savage and Feral (true story) who eventually tracked down Maul after a tip off form some darkside cult sisters. When they found him he had spider legs (another true story) but eventually they got him some super battledroid legs (yet another true story) as they teamed up to have revenge against Kenobi. Maul and his brother then killed a load of Jedi and had a few unresolved encounters with Kenobi. I think thelast we see of Maul

    New trailer came out today - looks half decent and the yellow costume is in it!!!!
  7. They did, how can we forget the amazing character-building droid factory sequence from AOTC.
  8. I only do world wide because it's not worth discussing NZ's box office haha - no wonder I thought you guys were being ultra conservative!
  9. Put me down for $600m. I feel if Doctor Strange can cross that mark then this will have no problem doing the same. I'm thinking the usual Star Wars repeated viewings crowd will help.
  10. 46 shots not in Rogue One: https://vimeo.com/196155136
  11. I've seen it a total of 3 times now. 2D big screen, 3D big screen and a 2D more intimate screening. I've gone from man-flu grump in the first viewing to acceptance in the 2nd and complete convert by the 3rd. Overall, my main concern remains: it's very patchwork. Much like the worst part of the prequels you can tell that there was significant rework. The most jarring is Jyn's interaction with Saw at the base. It feels like they kept Jones' original performance and rehsot Whittaker. The two don't really share a frame...and when they do I think they use what I assume is a stand in fo
  12. I saw it at the NZ midnight showing on Thursday...and I have to say that overall I didn't like it. Now, to be fair, I did have flu and I was probably in a grumpy mood but it seemed very patch work to me. As an avid video gamer I thought the Tarkin and Leia footage was sub-par for the big screen and more at home on a PS4...I've already heard one person call it BFG-like. I also thought the Tarkin scenes were too much, should have been used much more sparingly because it actually took away from the character of Krennic. Mendelsohn is an amazing actor so I'm not sure why they made the decis
  13. I think they dropped the ball on the timeline stuff (ironic). I'm sure some of the awards in his cabinet were dated 2016 yet the movie features Avenger Tower in the NY skyline.
