Well I think pedo jokes have gotten considerably less cool in recent years

When some of Gunn’s jokes were made, Michael Jackson was still alive. I heard pedo jokes about him right up until the day he died.

his tweets were edgelord junk I’d expect to hear during Xbox Live chat.

This is pretty much exactly what I was thinking.

I’m not sure they ever stopped. Pretty sure I saw one somewhere recently.

Since Disney brought Captain Eo back to the parks for a while, I guess they made their corporate collective mind up about MJ.

Full Screen too. Talk about putting salt in the wound.

Fox apparently had a ton of those full frame discs (OT and PT) that they gave away to charity, with a special sticker added and the UPC slashed out. Those turn up on Ebay sometimes. This isn’t one of those though.

Everything that was still on store shelves right before the Blu-Release got pulled.

Apparently Good Morning Vietnam, too.

Good eye! There were a bunch of Marvel movies on Blu_Ray in there. Some Jurassic Park movies, a Blu-Ray compilation of themed Star Trek TOS episodes I’d never seen before, even some 3-D titles. It had been the same old DVD stuff gathering dust at this drug store for years before this. Sorely tempted to hit every store in the area and see what else I find.

Has Star Wars finally "jumped the shark"?
Time

They need to figure out how to avoid the problems that drive the cost of these films up as what happened with Solo. The Star Wars sequel that never was, Splinter Of The Mind’s Eye was conceived as being a modestly budgeted film that would take advantage of props and costumes left over from the first film. There’s probably a few warehouses full of stuff from the current films now.
A lean, mean, lower budgeted SW story film has a better chance at cleaning up at the box office.

Episode VIII : The Last Jedi - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

I’m not so sure what the playing field will be like going into Episode IX. Kylo can only get so far throwing tantrums at his officers every five minutes without showing some real leadership skills. He hasn’t proved he’s capable of replacing Snoke in that regard yet. (And Luke made him look like a fool in front of a lot of witnesses.) The First Order could be too busy grappling with internal power struggles to pursue the Rebels full bore, which may give them the time they need to find new/old allies and rebuild.
