  1. Hi All! Enjoying this, obviously. Hope you are too.

    Tank, [Part 3 spoilers]

    I think - more often than I should - about your idea for a Vader slasher movie. Between the Rogue One hallway scene and the village march and subsequent cat and mouse game... I need it now more than ever!

  2. It just goes back to lack of... preparation? Whatever the right word for it is. This movie worked for me, I enjoy all three in the sequel trilogy for different reasons. This has been a net positive experience! But it's also very clear it's been a clusterF from the get-go.


    This movie is going to "bomb" its way to $550M and then hopefully we can see some wholesale changes at Lucasfilm. They've (mostly) succeeded in spite of themselves for the last 5 years. It's time for new direction.

  3. Some of the original leaks was that Palpatine was coming back via a possession of sorts so it's thought that Matt Smith was involved in that, but due to rewriting on the fly we lost that fairly early in the process.


    Could be that it was only ever a bit part or a cameo though. We'll find out eventually.

  4. I really feel like you guys are crazy!


    Rey's Theme

    Jedi Steps

    Scherzo for X-Wings (admittedly not completely original)

    March of the Resistance

    The Spark


    I think all those are great fun and very Star Warsy. How much new groundbreaking material do you want in the 7th-9th movies of a series that reuses a ton of stuff on a movie by movie basis anyway?

  5. Objectively correct rankings:




    TROS (I'm not a 'prisoner of the moment' type, but I am a 'love a good ending' type, as evidenced by my lifelong love of ROTJ. Not the best, but it is my favorite)









    Rogue One

  6. Well, we made it. There will, of course, be more Star Wars to come, but 20 years after Nightly came into being we've finally reached the end of the "Skywalker Saga."


    The Hollywood premiere was last night and the movie opens a few places globally this week prior to the US opening on Thursday night. Have at it.



  7. I couldn't get out of my head that she was coming off like Bellatrix from Harry Potter. Like, intentionally haphazard and a little crazy.


    Well, the actress played Tonks in Harry Potter so I wouldn't be shocked if I was close to spot on!

  8. I'm all on board for vast overarching stories, long-running story arcs that culminate in some "thing."


    But I love this. I view it like picking up a new comic every week (which is not something I ever actually did lol). I don't think a ton about it in the interim, but I'm still really excited to see what happens next. Knowing that, for the most part, the story for that week is self-contained.

  9. Jacob, the first 20-30 minutes or so I was definitely like "Okay, I've seen this movie twice already, do I need to watch it a third? Still have three hours left."


    But I stuck with it and it did differentiate itself in some good ways. It is still a 3.5 hour movie though.

  10. Thought it was good. Thought it could have been just as good if it were 30, 45, 60 minutes shorter. Key scene that epitomized that for me was when Frank and Hoffa are talking to the side during Frank's ceremony/party. The scene goes on for what felt like 5 minutes when about 90 seconds probably would have done the trick.


    It was good! I'm glad I watched it. But I did find myself laughing a couple of times like "holy shit why did this movie need to be 3.5 hours?"
