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

George really should have made a trilogy with the OT cast in the late 80’s/early 90’s. That would have been the second coming. Or not.

I’m not sure Hamill is biting the hand. The youtube videos that attempt to read between the lines of Mark’s public statements are on a level with the people who think The Shining is Kubrick’s confession to faking the Moon landings. 😉

I don’t think Mark wants to be the fandom fringe torch bearer either way.

For anyone who wants to see pure hatred for something:

I really like this movie, and reading some threads over on that Reddit make me feel really uneasy.

Threads such as “Does Rey have any friends?”, “The cinematography in TLJ is overrated”, and the great “All 50+ times Mark Hamill tried to subtly warn us about last jedi/force awakens and bashed Disney”

FFS

Reddit is an abyss like twitter and youtube comments. Don’t stare into it for too long!

How come Mark is largely getting a pass from these fans while other SW actors get crap thrown at them? The people who think he’s somehow going to secretly record new dialog for a fanedit are a whole new level of denial.

If you need to B*tch about something... this is the place

There was one coastal town in California many years ago that shifted it’s fireworks show to very early in the morning because they had too many drunken idiots showing up causing trouble at night.

There have been so many illegal fireworks going off the past month around here I’m almost dreading tonight. Where the hell are people getting this stuff? And we’re talking the big kaboom kind.

Wow, I can’t even imagine what that was like. We all have our fun with Jar Jar, but to take things out on the actor behind the character is beyond the pale. There are some sick people in the fandom.

And Ahmed is one heck of a good sport voicing Jar Jar on Robot Chicken. He even got an an award for it!

Meanwhile, in Discovery news:

https://deadline.com/2018/06/star-trek-discovery-james-duff-joins-executive-producer-overall-deal-jenny-lumet-olatunde-osunsanmi-promoted-1202419818/

EXCLUSIVE: The Closer creator James Duff has joined CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery as executive producer. It is part of an overall development deal he has signed with series producer CBS TV Studios.

Additionally, writer Jenny Lumet (Rachel Getting Married), who joined the series as a consulting producer at the start of Season 2, has been promoted to co-executive producer. Co-executive producer Olatunde Osunsanmi has been upped to executive producer and will serve as the series’ producer/director based on set in Toronto.

Yes, let’s bring more people in who are in no way veterans of the franchise or know what makes Trek feel like Trek.

That’s ridiculous. Only people who are Trek veterans are allowed to work on Trek? Come on.

Not necessarily, but the production crew working on Discovery don’t seem to care much about making it feel remotely like the franchise it belongs to. Hiring people already familiar with the franchise has the potential at least to help in that regard. Granted, at this point, when I see some news article about Picard maybe having a role in Discovery I just sigh and move on because the series is already pretty much DOA as far as being a quality Prime Universe Star Trek series.

I thought the Picard thing was a separate show? Nothing to do with Discovery.

Then again, I’d be nervous if any film I produced had a six-figure loss.

It’s not a loss though. It just didn’t meet projections. Maybe they needed to rethink their projections.

If they spent 500 million on it then that is a loss.

I don’t understand why so many people here are so eager to paint Solo as if it isn’t a box office failure. It’s not like any of you have a personal stake in it.

I own Disney stock. Okay, it’s actually Disney dollars from 1989, but their market value is probably affected either way. 😉
