There’s no reason to believe every anthology film will be a solo character spin-off. We’ve only had one anthology film so far and it wasn’t that.

Yes.
My dream spin-off would take place in the SW galaxy, but feature no characters we already know and have nothing to do with the Rebels vs. Empire/Jedi vs Badguys ect.
Clerks set on Dantooine.

Dantooine is too remote to make an effective Spinoff Trilogy.

LOL

As time goes on and the novelty wears off, Rogue One is starting to slip a little for me. For whatever reason, it’s the (non-PT) film I find myself popping in the least frequently.

Huh, it’s been on BD for only 6 months? I haven’t popped any film more than once in that time.

But I do agree, it isn’t as rewatchable as the OT but I do still like it more than TFA. Some movies you like but they aren’t very rewatchable.

Star Wars is the best movie of the franchise.
The Empire Strikes Back is the best Star Wars movie of the franchise.

Which one you prefer says a lot about how much of a Star Wars fan you are vs simply liking good movies.

Thanks for the great distinction though between the two. I’ve never heard it put that way.

Someone has used it as a signature without “of the franchise” here for years but I don’t remember who.

I'm finally getting the OOT on vhs

Makes me wonder if it was some sort of weird creative decision to have all 3 posters have images from the other films.

The decision was to make them a connected piece which is why they try to to use one character only once and it probably didn’t matter to Struzan what images he used.

Oh no, the first SE set after they stopped specifying it was the SE! I’m so sorry.

Yeah. That Struzan artwork is a beautiful cover up to an ugly content.

There’s no Struzan on those covers posted?

I watched the trailer once. Didn’t like it at all. I don’t even like the poster. I’m getting worried. I did like the teaser, but… well, hopefully it’s good.

What were some of the biggest things that stuck out to you in the trailer that made you worried?

I’d probably have to see it again but the biggest thing was that it had a completely different feel than what a SW movie is to me. The porg felt like a baby Groot, the walkers in the beginning looked like they were from a video game, Snoke looked unnecessarily bad to the point of being ridicilously ugly, and the Leia/Kylo scene just felt something not belonging to classical science fantasy world. But hey, I had just woken up minute earlier when I saw the trailer and maybe in context it may work. I just got a completely different vibes from this than on the last teaser or TFA trailer for comparison. And I hope I’m wrong.

Do intentionally cheesy spoof covers for intentionally cheesy spoof movies (like Hot Shots!) count as bad?

He even has two pairs of sunglasses in the first photo!

I think that fits the spirit of the film and is probably intentional (or maybe even in the original photo).
It’s not funny, but neither was the movie.

Movies generally considered &quot;bad&quot; that you like.

I can’t believe that License to Kill is “generally considered bad”, it’s in my top3 Bond films if not even in the first place. I mean, you can have feel it’s not your cup of tea but I can’t see how it actually is bad. It has good actors, pretty locations, a cool villain, great action, nice 80’s set pieces… Some feel that From Russia with Love is their favorite Bond films and I don’t like it at all but I still don’t consider it as bad. Die Another Day on another hand, now that is bad and belongs in this thread if someone would like it.

Those are new covers wolrdwide. They even made steelbook for the first Superman. Also they renewed Batman covers, those are awful too.
