The way Luke actually died. For no fucking reason. At all.

Not. Fucking. Cool. Rian.

My nephew and I were discussing this…why DID he die? Did he use up all his life force when he astral projected? I mean, WTF?

Carrie Fisher’s poor life choices won’t allow that narrative to further play out.

Totally uncalled for.

…and the s***storm of people complaining about that is going to be ten times worse than the fan division created by TLJ.

Nah. There’s no episode number which makes it easier to divorce if ya don’t like it.

Hahahaha people not complaining when they don’t like any Star Wars movie. You’re funny.

I’m saying I don’t think the bitching will be as strong, loud or passionate as it was for TLJ. Not that there won’t be any.

I like big buttes and I can not lie
You feather dusters can’t deny
That when a moose walks in with a threat to lay waste
And them antlers in your face
You get gored

This is the first thing in the thread to make me laugh.
Thread is still no good though. Could’a posted that in random thoughts and still got my lawl.

A moose with a threat to lay waste is gold, Jerry. Gold.

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

You know when someone does something shitty to you, then you say, “Hey, that thing you did, that was pretty shitty,” and instead of saying “Oh, I’m sorry, man,” they go to great lengths to explain why what they did wasn’t shitty at all with no hint of an apology?

Yeah, that. I wanna bitch about that.

Fuck people.

Same.
Seems I’m constantly hearing “I’m sarcastic and snarky all the time! Don’t be offended by my rude behavior! This sorry excuse for a personality is WHO I AM!”
Sick of it.

JEDIT- I’ll point out that these people aren’t usually saying that to me, but complaining to me about how someone else dared to call em out on their jackassery. I’ve taken to replying with “If you can’t turn if off, it’s not snark, it’s assholism.”

Bride of Frankenstein deserves more than a 75%.

Probably my favorite movie.

Now this I don’t understand. I mean, it’s a fine movie, but I’m thoroughly more entertained by many other pictures.
(not knocking you or anything, I’d just never expect to see someone list it as their favorite of all time)

The story (in the movie, it’s sources and behind the scenes)
The music
The sets
The costumes
The cinematography
The style
The dialog
The metaphors
The symbology
The acting
The players
The direction
The mood
The story
The lore
The IDEAS

It’s not perfect, but nothin’s better.

For sure. Probably my favorite movie.

That’s why you just need to say, “I like the movie because . . .” or “I didn’t like the movie because . . .”

That way we actually know your opinion on the movies you’ve watched.

Yep. Star ratings usually say nothing at all.

I give this post ★★★★★ out of ★★★★★.

Ha! 😄

Most Dissapointing Aspect of Sequel Trilogy? Most Satisfying?

snooker said:

The denial of fan service is the crux of your hatred of his death?

Also, how was it cheap? The whole movie was building up to it.

The only enjoyment I got out of it was being justified in my initial prediction about the movie- It’ll mostly be a remake of Star Wars and Han will die instead of Obi-Wan.
Just seemed like a box to be ticked.

This sets up distrust in Lando from the moment you see him. Which is perfect - because he inevitably betrays the main characters.

No, he doesn’t.

He flips around, I know, but the world he’s in as opposed to his character sets him up as initially untrustworthy. Making his initial betrayal not seem completely out of nowhere.

Ah, Yeah, I can go with that.
The “Lando betrayed everyone!” thing is a big peeve of mine.

No, he doesn’t.
He makes a deal, that vader latter changes, to save his friends and the population of his city while handing over one person, whom he doesn’t know.
Despite the deal being “altered”, he still manages to save everyone’s ass. Would stopped Boba Fett and saved Han too if the Lady and the Wookiee weren’t momentarily stupid. 3PO even knew what was up.
