It is extremely interesting though, isn’t it? How some fans now would be begging for George to have a hand at the script, when that idea would be a joke 10 years ago.

Since ROTS the prequels have slowly mutated from just movies, into ideas of movies, to ideas of memes. Now the internet has absorbed the whole thing and slowly spews out Palpatine image macros that have no relevance to the actual reality of movies that are below average at best. Meanwhile George’s position as “genius creator” remains unchallenged in a way that many will believe his now Disney branded version of events. Interesting? Maybe. But not surprising. People are weird and fickle.

Rian Johnson to Head New Star Wars Trilogy
Time

I don’t think that the “Ruin Johnson” crowd are that big to be honest, and looking at the Blu-ray sales I think it’s all blown way out of proportion. He was clearly brought on board as the Irvin Kershner creative type to create the “new ESB”, and while that kind of corporate think tank approach is questionable I enjoyed the results. They’ve given him more to do within the franchise because they must like the results, and people at LFL must like working with him. And he didn’t get fired or questioned before the final cut.

Yeah I think we talked about that before, it’s really tinny for some reason.

The Last Jedi soundtrack isn’t as bombastic as the OT or PT, but it’s really atmospheric and moody.

Rose’s theme is solid and everything from The Battle of Crait to the end is amazing.

The overall number of standout themes was mediocre for TFA but there was some new material at least. TLJ barely changes up what came before. Rey’s theme is pretty good but the tunes for the Resistance, Kylo Ren and Rose are just lacklustre at best. In the original trilogy the variety in each film was incredible (especially ESB which is one of my favourite scores of all time) so I don’t get it. The standout themes in every film since TFA are always the OT music. At the Battle of Crait it’s so dull until TIE Fighter Attack kicks in and the whole sense of action in the scene is immediately boosted.

Wish there was a way to do a poll on this site.

Do we think that’s:
A. Jakku
B. Tatooine
C. Jedha
D. Some new desert planet

I’d put money on not only it being Jakku, but someone will say something like “Why does everyone want to go back to Jakku” to wink at the audience.

Vader was redeemed by his love for Luke… cheesy and unearned as that might be.

Kylo currently hates everyone? Really he needs to have a major new characterisation moment or realise he screwed up before falling into a hell of his own making. Something like that.

That’s not true. He cares truly for Rey. Just like how Anakin’s love for Luke brought him back, Ben’s love for Rey will also play a key factor to his redemption.

“You have no place in this story. You come from nothing. You’re nothing. But not to me.”

Sounds like bad guy manipulation to me. He needs to fall down a mineshaft pronto. Hopefully in a haze of despair as he sees the faces of all his murder victims.
