    Taking Fauntleroy tomorrow afternoon.

    Nice – the boy was totally wide-eyed when we saw it.

    Nathan made it 90 minutes.  Around the Kylo Ren interrogation he wore out.  Not bad for him.

    Favorite line of TFA: “Tell that to Kanja Club!”

    About halfway though reading the TFA novelization, which I guess is based on earlier versions of the script.

    There’s not that much difference, there’s a couple of minor plot changes, and a lot of extra dialogue.

    One thing is clear, though. Leia had at least four or five scenes either cut out or never filmed. You gotta think that it was the fault of Carrie Fisher’s dentures. :lol:

    Cut out of the movie:

    Leia (to her assistant): “You have to go to the Galactic Senate for me, tell them to get off their ass about defeating the First Order before it’s too late!”

    Assistant: “Maybe it’s better if you go yourself. Your words carry a lot more weight if you’re there in person.”

    Leia: “I can’t go. I’ll be assassinated or poisoned. No you have to go.”

    Assistant: “Okay, sure thing boss.”

    (Smash cut to Leia’s assistant out on the balcony of the Senate).

    Assistant: “Wow, what’s that giant red thing in the sky coming right at us? Aggghhh! Fuck you, Leia, you should be here!!”

    Those dentures flip and flop more than Uncle Junior.

    I enjoyed this even though I disagree with a lot of stuff that he says.  I do like his theory   (though I disagree with the “an Imperial scout team wasn’t sent to Endor looking for Vader’s DNA.”  Well no.  But we do have the helmet. )

    I like the idea but you’re basically back to a cloning story which for my taste is just…eh.  But the idea that Luke’s hand plays into it is pretty good.

    It’s a good point about Luke being almost too obvious, but so was Khan.

    These commercials are the best. There’s definitely something wrong with that Wampa kid. http://io9.gizmodo.com/have-the-best-day-ever-and-watch-over-100-amazing-vinta-1757926053?utm_campaign=socialflow_io9_twitter&utm_source=io9_twitter&utm_medium=socialflow

    Pretty sure Wampa kid is a young Andy Gresh.

    So, I guess Benicio del Toro is officially confirmed for the next movie as is Laura Dern.  I don’t know what to make of Laura Dern

    I assumed when they did some coverage out there back in the fall (this may be from then, not sure) that the pickup from VII-VIII would be relatively quick. I’d be quite surprised if it picked up right there, rendering the crawl irrelevant. Would be a pretty significant change.

    Seems to maybe confirm that:

    “Me and Mark have been rehearsing a lot, and it’s really amazing,” Ridley told MTV News on the Oscars red carpet Sunday (February 28). “When we went back to Skellig to do the opening of [Episode] VIII, it was so crazy doing the same scene with a different crew of people. He’s amazing to rehearse with, and I’m very excited to be doing the rest of the stuff.”

    It’s like watching Belushi in that 1st SNL Blues Brothers appearance.  Flip, flop and fly.

    They’re going to have to kill her or put her in a coma, there’s no way they can continue having her try to act.

    Be careful or the feminists on twitter will attack you.  Agree though, she was freaking awful.  I think they’ll continue to greatly minimize her role, most of the old school stuff will come from Hamill.

    I realize I’m a really easy mark for semi-funny Mark Hamill tweets.

    When I first started listening to podcasts regularly, I tried out Kevin Smith’s interview podcast. One of the then recent ones was with Mark Hamill. He must be the only guy that can out-talk Kevin Smith. Just would go on and on. And not in a terribly bad way. He was just so excited.

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    My agenda is truth.

    Just piece together her dialogue from the originals. Make sure new characters are named Dan Tooine and Ken Obi.

    Erik Bauersfeld, who memorably voiced the Rebellion’s Admiral Ackbar in Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, has died. He was 93.

    The voice actor and radio drama producer passed away on Sunday morning at his home in Berkeley, Calif., his manager, Derek Maki, confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

    In the 1983 space opera, Bauersfeld voiced Ackbar— delivering the line, “It’s a trap!” — when the fate of the alliance looks grim during the Death Star fleet attack.

    Amazon pre-order is the best.  You get it delivered the day it hits the brick and mortars.  I use it for trade paperback comics a lot.

    If this is your go to spot for SW news besides the rest of the Internet – Rogue One trailer tomorrow. My prediction – Vader breathing at the end.

    Watched again last night, saw the Rebel pilot doll in Rey’s AT-AT house everyone mentioned, also the ‘grave’ Luke is by, still not sure if it’s a headstone or just a stone.

    Also Poe’s look when he got off the shuttle in the Super Star Destroyer First Order Edition, he had no idea they were up against anything so big.

    Still not sure if the Republic fleet was destroyed or not, it was a goal of blowing up the Not-Coruscant system, but they didn’t show any ships destroyed, and the talk from the Resistance is strictly about their own fleet aka a couple dozen X-wings and a B-wing shuttle.

    Running at the AT-AT, though? Good money shot.

    What is it about a new Star Wars trailer that instantly turns me back into a 12yo super-dork.

    She looks hot.  Where do I know her from?

    EDIT-Felicity Jones.  I’m an idiot.  She was in True Story-what a piece of crap that movie was.

    June 5 BBY…assault, September 5 BBY…assault, grand theft land speeder…February of BBY 3, you defended yourself and had the case thrown out by citing “The Derelict Planet Reclamation Act”…joke. BBY 2 impersonating an Imperial officer, mayhem, theft, resisting all overturned I’m also aware you’ve been through several foster homes on desert planets that the Empire removed you from for serious physical abuse. You know, another judge might care, but you hit a stormtrooper, you’re going in. Motion to dismiss is denied. Fifty thousand Imperial credit bail.

    The Emperor had to have Clive Rushed whichever team of engineers designed the AT-AT, right? The fucking things are destined to be tripped up and knocked over.

    And then they doubled down with the two legged version for Endor!

    What kind of terrain can an AT-AT do that a tank can’t do better?
