<strong>Parker Lewis Can't Lose</strong> - <em>1990 TV series</em>
Time

One of my favorite TV series of all time! Season 1 is undoubtedly the best season. Season 2 is half great/ half mediocre - Parkers girlfriend Annie Sloan was kinda annoying and almost every episode took place in the lame Atlas Diner. Season 3 is terrible though - they completely changed everything what made season 1 so entertaining.

Best characters: Of course Parker Lewis, Mikey Randall ,Jerry Steiner, Larry Kubiac, Dr. Norman Pankow, Frank Lemmer and Grace Musso.

Worst characters: Annie Sloan, Nick Comstock, Coach Hank Kohler, Brad Penny.

The Last Jedi: Official Review and Opinions Thread ** SPOILERS **
Time

One thing i noticed during my third viewing: Lukes former lightsaber ignites faster with a different sound since he threw it away. Check various scences: Reys training at the rock, Rey VS Luke, Kylo ignites the saber to kill Snoke and the last Praetorian Guard.

Maybe the one Porg accidently changed the lightsabers configuration with his feet right before Rey picks it up?

“The Asteroid Field” theme gave me the biggest, dumbest grin.

The pacing and energy in that scene feels off. Besides the Asteroid Field theme nothing gave me any excitement. Am i dead or is this more about “I have a bad feeling about this movie”?

Has a copy of this book turned up in your home recently?

If so, you’re mostly dead. 😛

I’m already in contact with this guy from United appeal for the dead 😉

Saw it yesterday. Went in absolutely spoiler-free. I feel deeply confused about TLJ. The movie did some unexpected things. I have to see it a second time.

Yesterday - 4 months later - i saw TLJ a second time. All by myself. Without any piled up hype and high expectations as in december 2017…

… what can i say…

… this time i really enjoyed THE LAST JEDI.

Maybe because i was prepared for the unexpected stuff Rian Johnson put into his movie. Some things are still strange (space cow milking, Carrie Poppins) or dissapointing (the cave beneath Ahch-To revealing absolutely nothing) but overall a very enjoyable Star Wars movie. Not as fun and entertaining as THE FORCE AWAKENS, but still good.

Mark Hamills performance was superb. But i have to admit i had to get used to his demoralized mental state. Before TLJ came out, i wrote the movie in my head. I expected Luke Skywalker went to the first Jedi temple to examine why the Force always splits itself into light & dark side. And that he would attempt to “repair” or seal the rift once and for all. By the way i never wished to see Luke ripping Star Destroyers apart. I wished to see some Jedi temple exploration, maybe with some traps (here comes my Dark Forces II fan mind) and a great showdown in the final hall. Maybe The Knights of Ren VS Luke & Rey - no Prequel-esque coreography though, but some decent raw TFA-esque lightsaber fight. Luke being captured at end by Snoke resulting a nice cliffhanger for Episode IX … oh man, some many things come into my mind i expected or wanted to see in TLJ. No wonder i was dissapointed 😉

I have no idea how Mark Hamill was roped into this, but it’s fabulous: 😛
https://youtu.be/PCcgBLizbzc
(Mark’s part starts around 1:18)

Apparently, Mark also tweeted about it: “I remember not wanting to wear a gold jumpsuit like a rejected member of ABBA or if I could memorize dialogue in a foreign language-but thought “Who cares? No one outside of Germany will ever see this!” Thanks to the internet-NOTHING EVER GOES AWAY. Who knew?” -Mark Hamill

Oh my god, that is Holiday Special entertainment level. As a german now i feel somewhat embarrassed 😉

I don’t know if this was posted already:

I don’t mind them at all when they’re in the stables, I’m talking about when Rose and Finn are “riding” them.

Carrie Poppin’s

Can we not?

Precisely.

Although, I will say it did remind me that I dislike the CGI there too because they decided for some reason to try and make her look much younger and it really stands out. I mean, in the close up, why do it there? Just film her!

Is this a joke I’m not getting?

No…

I just watched that scene last night, so it’s definitely not a case of me not remembering. The close up on her when she’s floating in space (right before she wakes up) looks super fake. If it’s not fake I’d be astounded.

I think i saw the specific scene in the ‘The Director and the Jedi’ documentary for a brief moment. You can see Rian Johnson looking at a small screen showing Carrie Fisher in a close up. I guess it’s not fake but heavily digitally manipulated.

It would have made more sense to show him getting greyer as time went on, since it would then line up with Vader’s face too as they were both dark side users. Didn’t he look worse in AOTC than ROTS? It’s a redundant rebate I suppose.

He totally did.

AOTC

ROTS

I guess they were originally going for him to look more and more corrupted over time.

Never heard of the EMPEROR PALPATINE SURGICAL RECONSTRUCTION CENTER?

Rey’s marksmanship is a perfect example of the sexist bullshit that is the Mary Sue argument. Think how common it is in movies (not just Star Wars) that a guy picks up a gun for the first time and his aim and ability is never questioned. Yet they go out of their way to show that Rey isn’t perfect with a blaster but people call it out anyway.

Name some examples. I want examples where it is established that the character has never fired a gun before, and takes place in a story where a similar established character misses a lot, even though it shows that he already owns a gun.

Ellen Ripley isn’t an example.

f

Because you didn’t point out a scene which established that Ripley had never fired a gun prior to the first time we see her fire one, for starters.

How about her? She never used an axe before.

f

[Rose is about to cut Jack free with an axe]

Jack: Wait, wait, wait! Take a couple practice swings over there.

[Rose chops a hole in a cupboard door]

Jack: Good! Now try and hit the same mark again, Rose. You can do it!

[Rose chops again, missing the first hole by about 3 feet]

Jack: Okay, that’s enough practice.
