I think a lot of people are miffed about the whole 'everything is unexpected' because up until now, you've been made to think and expect a certain way for Star Wars movies to go. You can't fault fans for being more upset about it being totally not what they thought it would be when Ep 7 had so much fan service and callbacks. If Ep7 had been a totally unexpected start to a new trilogy, a complete break (or almost), then Ep 8 would have gone down easier. You can't bait and switch and expect people to be 100% with it, especially with the history Star Wars has (both in universe and out).

I haven't seen the movie but I've watched all the reviews and spoilers and everything. I've gotten the gist of what happens. I can say that, really, the only things that bother me, like truly, are the ways Luke is handled. YT's Star Wars Theory put out a video the day after the movie came out with his first thoughts on the movie and it made sense. Basically, it mirrored what I wanted to see: a strong, triumphant Luke coming back from obscurity, finding the power he had long ago that he used to defeat Vader and taking the fight to the First Order. Picking up the mantle once again. Only, that's totally not what we get. Yes, it's personal, some people like this direction they took. But this is sci-fi, fantasy, and we don't have to have our heroes grow old and grumpy and guarded. The video explains it better than I, atm. They psyched us up the whole time in TFA, the whole point was to get to Luke and...yeah.

Oh, and the way they took Ackbar out is bullshit. Pure and utter bullshit. Again, science fantasy, guys! Everyone doesn't have to go out realistically like a bitch. He should've been the one to hyper that cruiser into the ship. What a fitting end that would've been. Star Wars are like a visual novel and you want your heroes to have fitting ends, if they must go. Things are just a little too down-to-earth here for my taste.

=-Rigs-=

just saw it myself. i agree with all the gripes. this was just sophomoric trash even if it was entertaining to watch.

my main gripes: they still don't explain how rey acquired the skills of a jedi knight in the space of like a week. personally i always felt that was jarjar abrams flinging cool shit at the screen and not giving a fuck about "making sense". still, if this was adequately explained in 9 (which i doubt) i would be cool with it.

my unforgivable gripe: they STILL haven't given me any reason to give a shit about kylo ren, and it's a fucking tragedy because i think adam driver does fantastic work as a conflicted villain.

when your audience is as emotionally invested as star wars fans are, you can for sure expect us to care about han and leia's son. so them just glossing over WHY HE'S THE BAD GUY is kind of a fucking major oversight. i get it - snoke dark side mumbo jumbo. no. this is something that NEEDED to be depicted on screen because it's vitally important to a central character of the story. this is just more of JJ's mystery box bullshit when in fact it needed to be explained in TFA because its absence completely robbed han's murder of any emotional impact more than extreme confusion.

You guys need to understand that Star Wars is for little children, it's not for adults and never has been.

/looks at run time

I'd like to see the six year old kid after spending 2:32 min in a theater, and even better would be the parent that actually thought that would be just fine along with the fried nerves of everyone around them.

As for the reviews, something seems fishy on IMDB when you click on the user reviews you can't find a single 10 yet it's running and 8.1 score.

I can't blame "professional" review critics for fawning over Disney's money machine that they're desperate to prop up, given the recent acquisitions it could mean and end of your carrier if you don't play along nice with the Mouse Empire.
The movie is PG 13, so not for little kids. Also it's full of raw emotion and violence. It's probably the most intense Star Wars movie ever made. I thought it was excellent, definitely good enough to overcome a few flaws.

so where would you rank this in the star wars pantheon? first reactions make it sound like it was the savior of the series, like Empire, but i highly doubted that. now its RT score is plummeting and frankly i've found i trust the audience score more than the critics' score. i'll be shocked if it's better than rogue one, which was an excellent adventure film but still very flawed.

anyone know if the repeal can be repealed? if ijit pie can undo obama's fcc regulations, then maybe trump's successor can undo the undo? maybe even get congress to make NN the law?

also written and directed by shane black, who contributed to the script of the original film, played radioman Hawkins, and is a very good character writer/director in his own right. i think this will be better than the dreck since predator 2.

After Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad how the fudge was Zack given another superhero movie to mangle.

I hear EA is hiring.

SS wasn't bad, but JLA was like getting a handjob by someone with sandpaper hands and never even gets you fully erect, then just ups and walks out of the room after showing you an hour of bad CGI.

My daughter, ostensibly the target audience and huge fan of Jason Momoa, said it was horrible.

it was a shallow mess. if you want good justice league, watch the ealry 2000s cartoon.

Achievement Acquired: Faith in Humanity.

Bruh nearly half of those people voted for a child molester because the opponent had a (D) after his name. Faith in humanity might be going a bit too far.

yeah this was the point i was trying to make. good that the other guy won, but goddamn if he didn't beat a child molester by just 1 percent. i think human decency demands that he should've won by 95%. 5% extremists i can live with. even 10%, but that's getting somewhat skin-crawly. 45% voted for this demon? there's something systemically wrong with the country and the people even if they eked out the decent choice in the end.

it truly is shocking how so many voted for moore, who might be the most soulless fuck who ever lived. the republican party has become truly repugnant that so many of them can support such a hateful monster just cuz he has an R next to his name.

Hopefully, Mueller is just getting started. This is just the first cut of a thousand cuts.

he's already stated he went to the russians at the direction of higher ups in the campaign. mueller will have a nice collection of heads after this, probably trump's if the gop has a shred of decency left.

"Higher ups" = Jared Kushner, in this case.

a family member at least. i wouldn't be sad to see mrs. ivanka go to federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison. i do legitimately have doubts as to whether trump himself knowingly colluded, but he's certainly guilty of obstruction of justice. it's just a matter of if the GOP will impeach him or if they'll actually put party ahead of country and expose the party's black soul for all to see.

Bobbob! You're not dead!

Whatcha been up to?

Working and writing two novels. Been fairly busy. Plus, we remodeled a kitchen and portions of our home. Finally, life has calmed down.

How are you?

out of curiosity, what's your writing schedule? and how do you motivate yourself to get up and fucking do it?

I was discussing M & C a few months ago with a coworker, and we decided that there hasn't been a great naval movie involving capital ships set in WW1 or WW2. There have been a lot of good submarine movies (Das Boot, K-19, Red October), and a bunch of cheesy '50s naval movies, but nothing modern, nothing classic.

For example, the story of the Graf Spee is a great story to adapt. The "enemy" captain is a man of honor, who evacuates British merchant ships before he sinks them. And the commodore of the British fleet is an A-hole, IIRC. The Battle of the River Plate is a great tactical one, and in the end the losing side "wins." It's a story waiting to be given a proper treatment.

What, 2012's Battlehsip doesn't count? blasphemer!

Also curious what she was driving. It's not every car that can hit a buck twenty.
You might be surprised. My last Honda Accord (4-banger) was supposedly capable of 130. I took it to 120 on an empty stretch of I-10.

Charlie Rose is the latest scumbag.
I never did like his show and couldn't figure out why he was around for so long.
A couple of times I saw the morning show he hosted with 2 or 3 female hosts. The way he talked about women made me feel queasy, now i know why.

I guess a lot of cars can get to 120 if you jam the throttle and approach redline. I assumed she wasn't doing that. My G'pa had a 5-series BMW that he almost lost his license driving b/c he'd be doing 80-90 on the highway and it would feel like 50 to him. He just wasn't used to the superior power and handling.

ol' gramps wasn't lyin. i've driven an M5 and hitting 100 in that thing feels like 65 in a car for the unwashed masses. still doesn't make sense how that nutjob didn't realize she was doubling the speed limit. you gotta be super head-up-ur-ass not to know that. or, more likely, she's a lying cunt.

surviving a sub sinking in a modern US Nuclear sub is very unlikely. in a 30 year old battery powered piece of junk? i shudder at their chances. i hope they were in shallow water and their pressure hull is intact.

And I don't know why you guys worry about a Vasectomy... I'll never have to worry about hearing "Yes... you ARE the father!" ever.

JL was certainly a discount experience. i would agree; save your money. it wasn't as good as some of the DCAU movies of recent years. surprisingly chuckle worthy, but completely brain dead story and characters.
