Don’t believe in ghosts. Don’t really understand that whole thing.

I will say my second cousin may or may not have been one of the cast members of the Syfy show Ghost Hunters at some point. Won’t say who because I don’t want someone to stalk and murder me.

Arthur C. Clarke once said he believed ghosts are as real as dreams. One episode of his Mysterious World series put a battery of high tech analysis of several famous ghost photos. All but one could be explained as double exposures or some other random malfunction of old school manually operated film cameras.

I find it interesting the current ghost hunter shows never seem to catch anything visual beyond “orbs”, which I presume are just dust particles catching the light. I have plenty of flash photos with orbs in them so I must be surrounded!

Criterion is gearing up to release the entire Showa Godzilla series (1954-1975. 15 films) on bluray.
I’m amazed. I can’t wait!

Whoa. I remember when they announced releasing some classic Godzilla back in the Laserdisc era. Those unfortunately never came out. I presume because Toho was and is notoriously difficult to work with.
Glad Criterion kept their eye on the King of all Monsters no matter how long it finally took.

Han - Solo Movie ** Spoilers **
Time

Don’t forget we’re probably seeing the Falcon in a factory fresh new car state. (Or Lando is secretly a clean freak.) Han will probably complain it’s too hard to get panels off in a hurry when making repairs and start customizing the first chance he gets.

Is that for real? And why is Cookie Monster associated with this? I have a hard time believing the Sesame Street folks signed off on that.

George Carlin also pointed out you can use a the sharp edge of a sheet of paper as a weapon.

Is this next?

The stuff I’ve read about his past is pretty icky though. (Presuming it’s true.) I don’t think he’s ever getting in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Episode IX Discussion <strong><em>Spoiler Thread</em></strong>
Time

I don’t think protocol droids are programmed for that sort of thing. And even if you count Episode III, Threepio’s piloting skills probabaly got flushed along with all his other memories.
I think in the end Threepio and even Artoo are the witnesses to history who pass these stories on. Daniels can teach a replacement to wear the suit, (as has been done with Chewie) and do the voice a bit longer.

Terrible DVD/Blu-ray Cover Art
Time

The house with a doorway that opens to a perilous drop on the cliff isn’t so dangerous looking in the actual movie.

I guess they really wanted to show it’s on a island for the DVD cover, hence the bad photoshopping.

Episode IX Discussion <strong><em>Spoiler Thread</em></strong>
Time

Porgs are revealed to merely be the protrusion into our dimension of hyper-intelligent pan-dimensional beings who are actually bent on controlling the galaxy. The First Order and the Resistance reluctantly join forces to defeat them.

Rey and Kylo battle a giant Porg in the finale. Phasma returns only to be eaten by the giant Porg, who spits out her armor. Just when it seems they will lose to the giant Porg, Broom Boy™ saves the day.

Lando finally shows up at the very end, with a plausible explanation as to where the heck he’s been the past two movies.

Luke wakes up in a cold sweat safe and sound at his Jedi Knight school. The entire sequel trilogy revealed to be a bad dream. Millions of Star Wars fans take up hard drinking.
