The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance has been officially cancelled

My bad. Worst I’ve seen (I don’t watch Michael Bay movies) and only one of the worst, not the worst. That award goes to The Rider, with dishonorable mentions to Paterson and Waking Life. God that Film Studies 2 was a rough semester.

And dissing The Dark Crystal on Jim Henson’s birthday no less…

Well the script isn’t by Henson and everything else in the film is great, so I’m not really dissing him.

So I like A Gentle Restructure’s moving of the Hosnian destruction to the end as a failure of the Resistance to destroy the superlaser in time. However, I still can’t get past having another Death Star. I want the Senate to be destroyed via dreadnought. How do we make this work? I feel like there could be a way to accomplish this using the opening scene of TLJ, but I fear for how the holes that may create in Poe’s arc for that film. I also don’t wanna entirely lose the attack run on Starkiller Base.

Poe doesn’t really have an arc, but if you’re gonna have planet destruction you might as well take a Star Destroyer from IX. Maybe take the Kijimi sequence and use it.

I don’t want a planetary destruction, though. Just a concentrated blow on one spot like the one delivered by the dreadnought.

I wasn’t aware that there were any plans for another season, since the cliffhanger set up the events of the film pretty well. It was a fun show to a good movie, but I’m not sad it’s over.

Honestly, the movie isn’t good. The artistry of the visuals is outstanding (for its time), and so is the worldbuilding, but it’s letdown by honestly one of the worst stories on film, and I don’t say that lightly. It just feels like it’s lacking any meat on its bones, which is a shame.

I’m sorry, did we not watch the same series?

There is still a huge gap in events between the series and the film. The Gelfings are still numerous, Deet’s been consumed by the Darkening, the Garthim have only just burst onto the scene, and I think some of the Skeksies are unaccounted for.

The Rise Of Skywalker - Abrams' Vision or Executive Meddling?

“The community” is a very small percentage of the larger audience though. Fandom isn’t as important as it thinks it is, nor does it have the numbers it thinks it does. “Fandom,” and “The Community” don’t represent a lot of power compared to the general audience. Is there some venn diagramming of the “Silent Majority” as you put it and the vocal side of a much, much smaller segment of that audience that self-identifies as “the fandom?” Definitely. Is that venn diagramming all that important to anyone but the people in that self-identified fandom? Not really.

You must be right. Clearly, the fandom can’t be that big since pretty much every corner of it hated TRoS and yet audience scores are pretty positive. Then again, I think they’re taken from right after the premiere, so…
