What's the Weather Like Where You Live?
Time

I’m in Devon and only really getting the back end of it but it’s VERY windy tonight. My heart goes out to everyone who got the full force of the storm. Not a good day for a lot of people.

Wamp Rats sautéed with a little Jawa Juice are just to die for. And you can bet with all those years of practice the crazy old wizard perfected that recipe.

First Movie Seen
Time

When my mum was pregnant with me she saw Saturday Night Fever so I guess that’s the first movie I heard. But I’m very proud to say that my first movie watched in the cinema was Star Wars (a re-release in 1985ish.)

Episode VIII Discussion *SPOILER THREAD*
Time

I was resolutely not going to watch this trailer and was going into antispoilerlockdown mode but I kept getting told how great it was so I caved in!

I liked it except for how “busy” a lot of the effects shots looked but then it’s a trailer so of course all the exciting parts are going to be on show.

I’m reasonably sure the end was two different scenes but I’m looking forward to being wrong.

Loved how Rey’s lightsaber swings were timed with the music, it won’t be like that in the film so it shows the care they took to make it (whoever that was.)

By the way, did anybody spot the AT-ST?!

*sigh*

Well, you’re wrong 😉

Also, the rules have been updated in the first post.

In addition (because I don’t want to break the new rules) I predict that on next week’s episode of Supergirl Kara will be wearing a blue top at some point.

Granted, and as with most of the mythology information, it’s not given to us in a transparent fashion or all that elegantly but… The black oil in the movie is the alien’s life force. It contains both consciousness and the building blocks for making new aliens.

The point was made in the movie that the syndicate had no idea the oil would do anything other than control those it infected and this new information very quickly changed their outlook on how they would try to stall the invasion.

The black oil was also very separately the alien “blood” in some episodes and ACTUAL fuel oil in “Piper Maru”, “Apochrypha” and “Vienen”. It was just a medium for a body-jumping alien consciousness that was able to be used as it was similar enough to the alien’s own black oil blood stuff.

(I think!!!)

I predict there’ll be a title announcement for the untitled Han Solo movie sometime around the release of Ep VII in December and a teaser trailer in January when Rebels comes back followed by a full trailer after Rebels finishes sometime around March then when “The Kessel Ron: A Star Wars Story” is released in May we’ll get an announcement of the next anthology movie which everyone and their bantha seems to think is going to be about Ben Kenobi but which I predict will be about bounty hunters.

I’m not saying it stands alongside the all-time greats of cinema but it’s practically flawless. The music, the cinematography, the story, the acting, and pretty much everything else is perfect to me. I really don’t think there’s a thing about it I’d change if I could.

Fight the Future is a masterpiece, away with all you naysayers. What’s not to like about it?

After Googling “Chick-Fil-A” I predict that it is an activity unlikely to cause offence should you decide to provide photographic proof for us.

It is, however, still contrary to the rule book - but I’ll allow it just this once!

Jeez, yhwx - there’s only one rule in this thread and you broke it 😉 How can we possibly verify you have done whatever that thing is that you’re predicting you’re going to be doing?

TCW was broadcast 16:9.

You’re in the U.S. right, Dom? That’s interesting, as I watched it in 2.35 when it was broadcast on Sky in the U.K. I remember the aspect ratio as it was the first thing I noticed!

I wonder which other parts of the world got differing aspect ratios?

How about a thread where we make predictions for the future? Might be fun (she says, sheepishly.)

Just watched a recap review of the panel and came here to hype about the remastered edition! Great things come to those who wait. 😛

Me too!

I was over the moon when we got Mask of the Phantasm in the summer but now this? Unbelievably good news but can I be really greedy and hope for some new commentaries and documentaries as well?!
