I hope there is a scene with Poe in a gladiator costume to contrast with Huttslayer Leia in Jedi.

Tbf, we did get shirtless Kylo.

I get the sense that s/he’s not so much concerned about gender equality in this case so much as getting to see Oscar Isaac in a gladiator costume on the big screen. Correct me if I’m wrong.

I’m a guy and yes you are correct.

Having Hayden Christensen appear in IX is my single biggest fear for the film.

If that were to happen I’d have to write off the entire ST and I’d rather not do that. =/

If JJ legitimizes the Special Editions, I don’t know what I will do. I’m sick of the idiot PT and Clone Wars fans.

Let’s be more civil. Just because you don’t like the Prequel stuff doesn’t make the people that do like them idiots. We’re all in the same fandom, whether you like it or not.

And when has JJ ever expressed fondness for the SE’s?

Putting Hayden Christensen in IX would legitimatize the SE’s.

I’m just so sick of Ahsoka Tano. Anyone who calls Rey a Mary Sue needs to take a hard look at Ahsoka.

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.

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?
