Well it's a week away. Credit card still warm after having just booked up 5 VIP tickets for 10pm on the 14th for me,
the wife and some pals. Hope it's much darker than Ep7 without obviously being another Empire Strikes Back.

Here's the trailer

Open discussion thread. But please, keep the plot details to yourself once you've seen it, just for the benefit of those
still to watch the movie. Thumbs Up

After the whirlwind success Laughing of this thread I thought I should get the ball rolling -

We should have the reveal of where Mary-Sue-Rey originates in this movie. So who reckons Solo is/was Reys dad, making
Kylo Ren her (twin?) bruvva? I'm not sure on this one because I think Solo would have known this in Ep7.
Unless it was kept from him that he had fathered twins or he was just off gallavanting around the galaxy and Leia
birthed them in his absence. For me the biggest question is whether or not Fin has caught his breath yet. Every scene
in Ep 7 he seemed to be panting for air and a bit sweaty. Space-asthma maybe?

Rey will take up the way of the Jedi.

Luke will die in this one, relatively near the end.

Kylo will be far more powerful and you'll see Snoke up close protecting Kylo when Rey is attacking.

Luke jumps in to assist, Kylo takes down Luke, Rey has a rage, takes down Kylo and backup arrives for Rey, Snoke leaves but will return.

Enjoy Smile

Must have been after the credits. Is spock the one with the cool light beam across his face like Cyclops or the one that looks like Patrick Stewart?

Is it sad that I'm epically looking forward to this? I enjoyed Force Awakens in a big way. I know, I know it was basically ANH with modern effects and old actors, but it was akin to a spiritual experience for me.

I enjoyed Rogue 1 but not in the same way. A better movie, less of the exhilaration though.

This one I hope tops them both. I can't wait!

Disney rapes the early Lucasfilm classics and turns a huge profit.

Didn't mind the last one to be fair, but the middle post vader war phantom clone ones were utter shiiiite.

Episode 3 wasn't bad, I don't think Episode 1 was that bad either, although I saw it as a kid, rather than as an adult expecting to made to feel like a kid again. Episode II was appalling.

Force Awakens I rather enjoyed, Rouge One was disappointing, milking the franchise too far IMO, I mean you know they'll normally succeed in Hollywood films but to 100% know before the film has even started took any magic out of the film. Some of the 'acting' was hilariously bad as well, cockney bloke and rude boy cargo pilot spring to mind, I guess they've been playing those roles for so long they can't do anything else Neutral

I watched them again recently, and honestly I think episode 1 is the worst. It has no coherency, not enough action, the age ranges of the main players don't make sense, it has Anakin building 3PO which makes absolutely no sense at all. The acting is immensely wooden, the backgrounds look like mid 90's FMV sci fi game backgrounds. Some of the compositing is terrible, Jar Jar binks and the whole "Queen Amidala voted into power but not as she's really a decoy for the real Queen" doesn't make sense either. Two stand out good bits, the Pod race (which looks and feels a lot like a cut scene in an AAA computer game title) and the final fight with Darth Maul.

Episode 2: Yeah it's bad. Ditch the love story though, and it's actually OK. I'm not a fan of Camino, of Jango Fett or any of that, but it's bettet than episode 1. The acting is better, the compositing is better and there is a LOT less Jar Jar. Obviously the love story part is massively cringey, and with Padme being about ten years older than Anakin it doesn't make any sense. But it's not as bad as Episode 1.

Episode 3 was OK, but it didn't really excite me either. There were remnants of the love story, of Jar Jar etc, but there was also a lot of decent moments. Again the final fight is good.

Rogue 1: On rewatching I realised that Captain Andor, instead of being charismatic, tough and mysterious is actually just boring, flat and a bit of a d*ck. It also doesn't make sense for Tarkin to effectively take credit for the construction of the Death Star in ANH, nor does it make sense that Darth Vader should address choke hold guy when he says "Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've created...". It also makes Princess Leia a bit of a pratt, and it renders the whole "If this is a consular ship, then where is the ambassador?" business a bit of a nonsense.

I dunno I've not watched them in years, I remember episode 2 being like watching an annoying teenager go through puberty. I actually found the Robot Chicken pisstake better https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzW727RY-ig Laughing
