They’re spending One Million dollars on this ad campaign. Maybe they could have donated to a charity or something? And here I was feeling guilty for buying myself a Christmas present!
I’m sure the little girl was coached. Say the line, and we’ll give you a puppy! 😛

Wow, I didn’t know that until Trump took over, we couldn’t say Merry Christmas. hmm.

Christmas is the Candlejack of holidays.

huh?

I haven’t seen TLJ and won’t, and the same will hold true for the Han Solo movie and Ep. IX. People are free to doubt my commitment if they so wish; the world will go on regardless.

What made you avoid this film? After seeing TFA? After the trailer for TLJ? The reviews?

Reviews and general spoilers. Luke is my favourite SW character, and honestly his characterization in ROTJ – the promise that he would go on to recreate the Jedi – is essentially the only major thing I liked from that film. It’s bad enough that TFA introduced the concept that Luke’s nascent Jedi Order was eradicated by his own nephew, but I could’ve lived with it if Luke kept his head up and kept on truckin’. Instead he runs off to hide and wallow in self pity while the galaxy deteriorates in his absence. To me that is complete and utter character assassination; I refuse to dignify the movie’s existence by watching it.

What do you want for Christmas?

Also most of these wishes aren’t for “presents” or “Gifts”. Getting a girlfriend isn’t getting a gift, is finding a treasure and it’s something you have to do for yourself women aren’t objects to be given or taken.

I think you’re taking things too literally.

I think if you really want a wife you should get out and find one

No. I want to have one handed to me, regardless of what her feelings on the matter are. After all, that’s totally what I implied in my first post.

The topic is “what do you want for Christmas” and you said that was what you wanted, and that’s generally how Christmas gifts work, so yeah you’re right that is what you implied. Thanks for understanding.

And I also want some child slaves. You totally forgot about that.

You haven’t seen much of me in the past year or so as it is, though I have been lurking every so often recently, but you’ll see even less of me in the next year. I’ll be going into the seminary, which includes a year-long media fast at the beginning (i.e. no computer, TV, phone, etc.).

I had my suspicions before, but only now are they confirmed; Dr. Doom is my #1 favourite supervillain.

I saw this and couldn’t resist one last post… this is a wonderful example of how little has changed. Way back on June 13th 1983 the proto-internet Usenet allowed for a regular fan, not a professional movie reviewer or journo, to post his thoughts about George Lucas’s new movie Return Of The Jedi.

[trimmed for brevity]

So there you have it… proof that butthurt Star Wars nerds have been around long before this current generation of whiners and nitpickers nursing their rings following The Last Jedi!

Actually, it’s proof that some people had enough insight to realize ROTJ was crap from Day 1 instead of wallowing in nostalgic delusion for four decades.

I reject this claptrap about people loving or hating a SW movie mostly because of nostalgia. There are many thoughtful detailed posts explaining reasons for different preferences beyond a vague desire for nostalgia.

FWIW, my remark wasn’t 100% serious. Matt chose to blow one person’s none-too-critical review out of proportion and cast everyone with an opinion contrary to his in as bad a light as possible; I was only giving him a taste of his own medicine.

The Sequel Trilogy we wanted...

…can never happen. In an ideal world, George Lucas would have kept directing and writing films, keeping his craft sharp. He has Maria by his side, complementing his strengths, compensating for his weaknesses. Around 1990, George realizes that he does not need any more advanced special effects to make more Star Wars films; he just needs good stories. He makes the ST focusing on Luke’s efforts to rebuild the Jedi and Leia’s efforts to rebuild the Republic. The films are released in 1993, 1995, and 1997.

On top of that, Gary Kurtz’s poignant Revenge of the Jedi would’ve been the concluding chapter of the OT instead of the namby pamby twincestual teddy bear picnic.

WarGames (1983) - 3/5

Absurd, but not stupid.  Not sure if that description will make sense to anyone but myself, but it works for me.

You should know better than to underestimate me.
