Rogue One * <em>Spoilers</em> * Thread

Something to consider about the CGI recreations in R1, the actors in Star Wars signed away their likenesses to LFL. Like Carrie often joked, “Every time I look in the mirror I owe George a couple bucks.” I think that could have much to do with the legalities that might hinder this kind of thing from going out of control.

Reservoir Dogs (1992) ★★★★

Fantastic! … and kind of depressing.

I decided to try and watch all of Tarantino’s movies in order, so one down.
I’m not sure when I’ll have three hours free for Pulp Fiction, though.

Pulp Fiction is my fav. from Tanintino and one of my top 5 favorite movies.

Argh! Makes me so mad to check his FB page and see idiots commenting that Ady is somehow scamming people for a new laptop. Effin’ dumpster-heads!

(That’s why I don’t have comments on the site)

And why I don’t use it at all and am super thankful for your wordpress page!

The Nintendo Switch looks great.
Breath of the Wild looks fantastic even though I don’t like the voice acting in the trailer.

Nor did his acting coach. He was terrible child actor. There were plenty of other kids who could have done a great job. Good child actors aren’t that rare a find and there’s more than one better choice in the BTS casting clips! Every line Jake delivers is truly terrible and not just because of the writing. “Sandstorms are very, very dangerous.” That’s not a bad line on it’s own…

Also, along this vein, casting him younger and expecting him to act older while casting Natalie older and expecting her to act younger was a terrible choice. This comes off incredibly creepy during their scenes together.

An American Icon is no more.

Though it’s a shame to see the death of an American icon, I hope this leaves more room for smaller circus acts to pop up. It is my understanding that circus culture - carneys, families traveling together, etc. - is still at least partially alive.

Many traveling carnivals still do fairly well. I have an old friend who travels with a carnival. He’s been doing it for about 10 years I guess.
I’m sad that the Big Show is over. There’s really nothing in modern life that replaces it, either.

^ Yep. I loved it. It felt like a horror movie and it was great. It showed that Vader was powerful, but it wasn’t over the top like some of the video games.
He really didn’t do anything we haven’t seen him do before (force pull, choke, levitate. Saber murder.), but seeing him do it all in one scene in a tight corridor to terrified people… damn that was cool!

I can’t remember why Anikin turned to the darkside. I don’t think I ever really understood, to be honest.
I was just bustin’ ya balls though. I really don’t know nothin’ about the EU n’ such.

It’s pretty much ambient music with a retro feel. Really good to listen to while doing work, or just relaxing.

I just listened. Absolutely fantastic.

^ It creates a few different continuity errors. Now when Han says “Were a little rushed…” he’s lying because Jabba just gave him more time. And it ruins the reveal of the Falcon. And the performances are terrible. And it looks terrible. And…
