“Sometimes.” It’s two guys explaining why a movie is good or bad and why everyone who likes the “bad” movies are morons.

The Plinkett reviews do that. HITB doesn’t. I’ve disagreed with their reviews many times and have never felt they were belittling me.

JEDIT- i dont care why do i keep stepping into this

The Worst Scene/Sequence in Any Star Wars Film
Time

DominicCobb said:

Shocked no one has mentioned objectively the worst scene in Star Wars history: the fireplace chat in AOTC. Featuring some of the worst dialogue in any film ever, making it truly painful to sit through.

Most embarrassing either goes to the scenes where 3PO and a battle droid swap heads, or Jedi Rocks.

Oh, yeah. This is the new winning answer.

I decided to rewatch the first season, to refresh my memory of events before proceeding to the second. My opinion of the show, which wasn’t all that high to begin with, has fallen.

SPOILERS

  1. This Ash isn’t the Ash from the movies

He’s a different character in all three films, so this didn’t bother me at all. Only watched the pilot though.

Last night I watched the pilot for the Westworld series. I dunno… Will probably check out the next episode.

There are hardly any environments in AOTC or ROTS that look real to me.

Naboo looked perfectly real. Episode I was a giant set.

I didn’t mention Ep 1. It’s a good looking film.

Episode II was filmed in Italy with a few background altercations to look more ‘sci-fi.’

And they made it look fake. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Think about the logistics of this. The battle of Endor just happened three years ago. But somehow in that time a coffee magnate has traveled out to Endor, found their local variety of bean, negotiated with the local Ewoks to harvest them for him, ramped up production to a galactic scale and successfully marketed it? That’s ridiculously improbable and silly. The Star Wars galaxy is made up of billions of planets, referencing the same handful over and over shrinks the galaxy.

Yeah. Still don’t get it at all.

Han - Solo Movie ** Spoilers **

L3-37:

A “self-made droid”, L3-37 has cobbled herself together using an assortment of components from astromechs, protocol droids and countless other robotic sources, devising her own form and function to become something quite unique – with an impressive AI to match. L3-37 is Lando Calrissian’s enlightened navigator and co-pilot. Her programming makes for an indignant, spirited and somewhat eccentric companion, who cares deeply about droid rights. With a mind of her own (after all, she built it) L3-37 is subservient to no one.

Sounds worryingly lame.

*Times are tough under Imperial rule, with planets across the galaxy feeling the pressure of the Emperor’s iron grip. One such world that has seen better days is Corellia, transformed by the Galactic Empire into one of its principle starship production facilities, it’s famous shipyards now churning out TIE fighters, Star Destroyers and many other weapons of Imperial domination. To survive the harsh reality that has befallen his homeworld, a young street thief named Han spends his days running scams while working for a notorious Corellian gang, stealing what he can and cutting deals on behalf of his ill-tempered crime boss. Han is unrefined, reckless, and continuously getting himself into scrapes – then improvising his way out of them. Never one to plan too far ahead, Han goes where opportunity calls.

Sounds great!

Determined to become “the best pilot in the galaxy”, he enlists in the Imperial navy only to find himself kicked out of the flight academy for “having a mind of his own”.*

Ehh…

Woah! ^ That’s the first shot of Ehrenreich that makes me think he could work as Han Solo…
But unfortunately he doesn’t look as much like Dick Valentine as usual. And that’s disappointing now.
(the movie looks good, but I’m still very much looking forward to see if Han exclaims “YES!” or “SOLO!” or “NEW YORK CITY!”)

a number of (the posters for new SW movies) strike me more as promotional posters you buy in stores…
Wish they would have stuck with the more classic style of poster art instead of the generic blockbuster treatment.

I gotta agree. Most of em look like the type hanging slightly crooked on kids bedroom walls.

Someone did a re-working of the colours for the UK poster…
a side by side comparison can be found here - https://twitter.com/RuairiRobinson/status/987105936098541568

I love that! It’s much better.
(the one you posted isn’t the ‘corrected’ one and I dunno how to post those pics, but that link clearly shows the difference.)

The section they’re in takes place like three years after ROTJ but they reference gourmet Endorian beans harvested by Ewoks and crop farming on Yavin IV. You could get away with that maybe 10 years after ROTJ but just three? No.

I don’t get it. What’s keeping them from harvesting crops? Why do they have to wait 10 years?
