Episode VIII Discussion *SPOILER THREAD*
Time

Interesting revelations not many people talked about:

Daisy Ridley confirmed The Last Jedi will have at least some ‘Grey’ in the film and a part of it will have to do with DJ

Rian Johnson confirms the meaning of the title “The Last Jedi” changes throughout the movie and Daisy Ridley seemed to be under the impression that the title was plural.

but when you slaughter a school full of kids, I don’t think you get to come back from that.

Yeah, I like Ep III (I know, not a very popular opinion around here…) but this scene is among those I truly dislike.

Would you prefer they just alluded to Vader killing kids? I’m neither for nor against them showing Vader killing children but the reality that he has killed children in the past should be acknowledged somewhere…even if it’s in novelizations or comics.

it would be cool too see a force ghost that is torn between the light and the dark like in the concept art
anakin force ghost

This would be cool for a story which takes place shortly after ROTJ, but not 30 years later. Anakin should be long gone and so should his conflict.

Rumor but with all the people that want to see Anakin talk to Kylo I can see it actually happening. Maybe Force Ghosts will be one if the mysteries explored in the film.

Seeing Dunkirk this Friday. I’m curious to see how a PG13 War movie directed by Nolan turns out.

Kind of pissed we didn’t get to see The Knights of Ren though.

I suspect that training clip with Daisy defending herself against several enemies at once is KoR-related. It is indeed a bummer we didn’t see them in costume, though.

Considering there are multiple assailants in the part where Adam is training he could be fighting the KoR as well.

I’m loving how they’re still pushing that TLJ will be a bold film that will usher in new concepts and that it will delve deeper into the characters both old and new. Kind of pissed we didn’t get to see The Knights of Ren though.

Yoda and Palpatine NEVER should have been given lightsabers.

I am conflicted

on one hand giving palpatine no lightsaber makes palpatine seem like a dark wizard…and fantasy inspired star wars is the best star wars ever

on the other hand giving palpatine no lightsaber would open a pandoras box of force unleashed-esque force abilities that would get ridiculous

Nothing is ridiculous when it comes to The Force. If destroying a planet is nothing compared to the power of The Force then everything in the Force Unleashed is essentially child’s play. KOTOR II would be a better example, but then again there should still be more powerful Force Abilities if what Lord Vader is to be taken at his word.

You can jump right into Homecoming with the films you have seen. There’ll be some vague references to events outside of it but they don’t affect the plot. If, however, you do want to start with Spider-man’s first appearance. I would highly recommend watching the Captain America trilogy. Some find the first film a little too cheesy (I loved it) but it sets the foundation for Winter Soldier and Civil War which are entirely different beasts and some of the best films in the MCU.

As long as it’s not 60’s Batman type cheese I can handle it. Also, seeing something so different than what I’m used to can give me a new perspective on Superhero flicks and I’m going to watch it for that reason alone. The only thing that sucks is that I’m running through Breaking Bad again and that’s taking up most of my time outside of work so this is someting I’m going to have to push aside for the time being.

I’m digging the design of the Praetorian Guards but why do they gotta be red? That’s just inviting half baked comparisons. Admittedly Snoke having guards was going to invite them anyway but there’s no need to give the naysayers something genuine to bitch about.

I am absolutely loving the look of the Heavy Scout Walker. Hopefully they’re used better than AT-STs were in the OT

How much of the MCU must one view before watching Homecoming? I’ve only seen Iron Man, Iron Man 3 and The Avengers.

When Did The Star Wars Prequels Become Cool?

Rogue One was awful. I find it even less watchable than the other prequels, if not “worse” as a film. At least they weren’t just fucking boring. At least they were unique. At least they were memorable, with memorable moments and memorable characters. At least they actually felt like Stat Wars and didn’t feel like some generic shitty sci-fi would-be flop that just happened to have a Star Wars skin on it.

The fact that Rogue One has a terrible, rushed score from some random composer rather than a John Williams score is enough to demonstrate just how un-Star Wars this film really is. It’s dull, drab, and dreary. Star Wars films are supposed to be full of excitement, color, and life. Things Rogue One had zero of. Only thing it had less of was characters with personality, characters the audience related to and were invested in, and a story that was interesting and unpredictable. It did have a lot of cringeworthy and forced fan service though, I’ll give it that.

I don’t give a damn how “adult” the movie is, because adult movies can still suck. If anything it’s the opposite of what I look for when I watch Star Wars anyway, which is to revive the child inside me for a moment. Rogue One killed him.

I’m glad you didn’t like this movie…because no one worth their salt would ever compare rogue one with the star wars prequels and say the prequels are better in anyway

Damn

The PT had better soundtracks but Rogue One crushes them in every other facet though.
