Is Justice League the new Heaven’s Gate/Howard The Duck/Ishtar now?

They could potentially clean up on home video if we get to see the original footage. Assemble it into an alternate cut ala Superman II.

Justice League was cheap looking an an obvious mashup of two directors with very different styles.

Seems like many people voted with their dollars this weekend. I’ve read some opinions saying that they won’t be watching any Star Wars in the cinema if Kennedy remains in the cockpit. Would things really get better if… let’s say, Filoni replaced her?

No because Ahsoka and f-ing Ezra would take over the whole Saga.

The other Wookiee looked kinda off, but I put that down to him being a slave and abused.

Yeah, the slave wookies are intentionally skinny and malnourished looking.

I think I saw patches of fur missing too. I will have to check again when it comes out on blu-ray.

Funnily enough the part that grated me most was meeting Chewie - either Han has superhuman strength, or Chewie was going very easy on him for some reason. Also not sure about the other Wookiee we meet - the mask looked like it would fit better on a Planet of the Apes set.

Overall, I put the film slightly below Rogue One and slightly above TLJ.

Han was wearing armor when Chewie was throwing him around.

The other Wookiee looked kinda off, but I put that down to him being a slave and abused.

Anthony Daniels was the voice of one of the droids in Kessel, I think.

I wonder if Maul will play into the Kenobi spinoff in that Obi-Wan leaves to confront Maul and ends up taking down Crimson Dawn and leaving Maul stranded on Malachor with a live action replay of their final duel for a coda.

I liked that we saw Corellia for the first time.

Going to see it again tomorrow with my bff so I can absorb more of the details. So far it was better than R1 for me, except I still love R1’s final act more. Better than 80% of the Marvel Movies (IM2, IM3, Thor 1-2, Hulk, Ant Man, AOU, Black Panther) and on par with GOTG for me.

I do wish they would have held it back til December though cause the normies are complaining about fatigue.

4K restoration on Star Wars

I don’t mind the ending of Rogue One, but maybe it’s just because you hardly ever see a movie that’s willing to do it. Looking at you, Serenity. Would have been a perfect ending to a great movie but you didn’t quite have the guts.

I also don’t care about Ponda…yeah I’d agree it’s pointless, but it’s also one shot in a movie over two hours long. Shrug.

Jayne Cobb is my boyfriend so leave him alone. I still want a sequel to Serenity with the crew and Wash and Zoe’s kid.

Since most of the latter two prequels are CG anyway, you could probably get a pretty decent 4K image if you redid it all. Of course the actors would still look not so great.

cgi ghost hayden lol

This legitimately creeps me out.

Me too. But I was saying in some years they’ll be able to remake the entire prequel trilogy with CGI Hayden if they want to.

Can they just replace him with Matt Lanter?

Han - Solo Movie ** Spoilers **
Time

luckydube56 said:

How old is Solo supposed to be in this film?

Something about Lando seems odd to me. If these guys are supposed to be 20 yr olds, should Lando be so well established in the criminal underground? He looks like a boss. Should they be 28 yr olds? When does Solo go from being the cheeky kid to being the grizzled galactic smuggler?

These are minor annoyances but the movie looks fun.

I think Han is around 19-20. Chewie is 190.

I can’t wait for Filoni to shove Ahsoka and Ezra and Rex in this.

Rex wouldn’t be alive, clones have accelerated aging.

Its one of Filoni’s pet characters- they will survive when all logic says otherwise.

Not a fan of Filoni’s shows?

I think they are ok. I do fucking hate Ezra though and his actions in the series finale angered me as a big fan of Thrawn.

Star Wars Books. Good Recommendations?
Time

For a kid his age, there are NU Canon books like

The Mighty Chewbacca in the Forest of Fear (upcoming)
Guardians of the Whills
Smuggler’s Run
Weapon of a Jedi
Moving Target
Before the Awakening (Background for Poe, Finn and Rey)
Cobalt Squadron
The Legends of Luke Skywalker.

They would be more his reading level than some of the other suggestions, great as they are.
