Han - Solo Movie ** Spoilers **

I hope old Han Solo is used as a framing device. Maybe Harrison Ford providing narration throughout the film too.

I think that would only strengthen the disconnect between Ford and Ehrenreich.
It would be like watching How I Met Your Mother, where you’re going “Which one of these people grows up to be Bob Saget?”

Yeah but still I don’t think it’s a great idea to have it implied Han has been running from Jabba so long he turned from that guy into Harrison Ford. That doesn’t mean Lucasfilm won’t do it though.

I agree. I could do without a Jabba cameo altogether.
But hasn’t it been confirmed that they built a new Jabba puppet? That could be interesting.

That’s the one I grew up with as well but I have since discovered the superiority of the pc version. Actual cutscenes, higher quality voices and more voice clips, higher quality music.

This. My heart was sad when I read that the two of you played the absolute worst port of that fantastic game. I played the PS1 version originally.
The sequel is really good too. Underrated and overlooked.

Does a Let’s Play qualify as a web series?

My wife and I have been watching several Let’s Plays on Youtube by MasaeAnela. Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, and Tales of Symphonia so far I think.

watching someone else play a video game was considered a form of torture. 😉

Why is that? …Maybe if they have no idea what they’re doing.

But a Let’s Play’s enjoyment hinges more on the quality of the commentary than the skill of the gameplay.

It’s the commentary that turns me away. It’s almost always an annoying “nerd” type who talks too much.
Watching a skilled player play through a Zelda title can be cool, watching the story unfold like a movie. But usually it’s like watching your roommates obnoxious friend play while your roommate isn’t even home.

I just remember other kids in the neighborhood or my older sisters and brothers would play video games and I would sit and watch and be really bored because I wanted to be the one playing it.

Yes! It’s like watching RotS!

Individually, I believe. They’re already streaming on… whatever service Criterion works with, but they are getting everything set for physical releases.
I doubt the '54 film will get another release, as they’ve already released that, like you said. But I’m hoping the King Of The Monsters version will now be in equal quality.
Also, looks like it’s not just Godzilla, but other Showa era films like War of the Gargantuas (!!) and Rodan.

I would go for a re-relaes of G’54 with a cover matching the rest! I really dig the style.

I was just stating an opinion, an unwanted one it seems, but an opinion nonetheless. and unlike the rest of you, I have refrained from making personal insults. Who is better, the person who answers a question or the person who jumps on the responder? The latter because name callers and shamers are not what one should aspire to be. I’m a secular humanist Jew and even I can see that there is no value to be found in the books of either religion when it comes to morality. The fact that you’re all up in arms over my suggestion to the poster proves to me that some people can’t play nice.

Dek Rollins said:

when the words used are actually descriptions of someone’s behavior rather than a juvenile insult, it isn’t simply “name calling.”

You mocked religious beliefs when the context of the thread and the conversation therein had nothing to do with religion. This is not an unwanted opinion, it is an insult being spread to anyone who is religiously a Jew or a Christian. We are not “name callers and shamers” because we called you out for being an asshole.

If someone on here made a blatantly racist comment, would I be a name calling shamer for calling them a racist?

You’re playing the victim card and I’m not buying it.

Yep.

DominicCobb said:

Zerome, what you said was inconsiderate and immature (at best). That’s not me name calling, that’s just how it is. Hopefully this won’t take up ten more pages.

Yep.

You did mean to mock them. Your statement about “the fictional bible of the Jews and Christians” was very directly mocking the books as well as those who hold related religious beliefs, and there’s no way you can victim-card your way out of it.

I say again:

I’m not playing any cards. I’m not mocking just giving my opinion.

Yeah, you are. You’re playing the same snide passive-aggressive cards ImpScum used to play. You’re fooling absolutely no one.

Yep.
