    The Daniel Craig cameo is pretty funny as well.

    So Lucas goes from calling Disney white slavers to saying they’re doing a great job :lol:

    good script/novel breakdown to fill in some gaps.

    Saw it last night. I liked it, I guess. To the good, no one called anyone ‘bantha fodder’, and the whole production was 50% less Abrams-y that his terrible take on the Star Trek movies. And for all the Mary Sue accusations hurled at the Rey character, there was one thing she wasn’t an instant expert at: scavenging.
    But there were too many ‘memba this? scenes for my liking. And c’mon, there should have been a squadron of Y-wings there for the assault on the capacitor, or oscillator, or whatever.

    Nothing will be saved. All will be lost. And our new onion-headed sad emoticon is unable to convey the depth of that loss. -10/22/25 (sic) Daily Thread

    Y wings were obsolete in the original trilogy! A-wings on the other hand, they should’ve been there.

    Just got out of bringing my three year old. What was his favorite part? “Darth Vader’s mask”. You and me both, buddy.

    He also made me laugh out loud when Leia came on, and he said, “What happened to her face?” :lol:

    Thought the closing scene was even better the second time. Mark Hamill was worth whatever they paid him do work one day. He doesn’t need to say anything, his eyes do everything.

    the only thing that annoyed me was solo and Leia kept using the term “our son” over and over in conversation. He’s got a name, no matter how much coke you’ve done Princess

    When Maz offers up the light saber in the basement I figured Rey as a Skywalker was a Lockadini.

    I think that as we move into the next movies you’ll get less cliff notes cues and the story will stay within its own space. Abrams seemed to be a little too deferential in putting that in there but it didn’t detract from what I thought was an excellent movie.

    I agree, “our son” was a little too noticeable.  Abrams was saving the name reveal for the Han Solo death scene – too cute by half.

    There’s little chance that the expository dialogue is on Abrams/Kasdan* IMO. That’s Disney and it’s more than likely so a billion screaming Chinamen don’t have their little commie brains confused as they are introduced to the series. Hopefully it won’t be needed going forward. I fully expect Johnson to write and direct the best Star Wars movie yet.

    *I’m not dinging him for shit like “That’s right R2 we’re going to the Dagobah system…I have a promise to keep to an old friend.” That’s on that dummy Lucas, clearly.

    Yeah, seeing it a second time, I can’t come to any other conclusion than Luke being her father. When Maz tells her that nobody is coming back to Jakku for her, but there is someone who she can go to, Rey says “Luke”. That’s the only way that makes any sense.

    Watched Empire with the kids the other night, and laughed when Obi-Wan tells Yoda that “the boy is our only hope” just so Yoda can say, “No, there is another.” How the fuck doesn’t Obi-Wan not know that Leia is his sister?

    Retconning.  Lucas didn’t decide Leia was Luke’s sister until before ROTJ.

    I’ve heard that but who was the other? Some rando sister elsewhere? Even if we buy that why does it cut RIGHT to Leia at Bespin after that and then you have to account for their force mind meld to find Luke hanging from Cloud City which also lends credence to the idea they are siblings.

    The massive retcon there always seemed to be “from a certain point of view.”

    Saw it again yesterday – this time with the wife.

    missed the straw doll in the orange pilot suit in Rey’s hideout the first time. Granted Luke wasn’t the only guy in orange – maybe she’s a Porkins?

    I think the idea is that Leia was special, and strong in the Force, but not necessarily a Skywalker or Luke’s sister to that point.  I’ll see if I can find where I read that.

    edit: Here is where I read it: http://spinoff.comicbookresources.com/2015/09/16/movie-legends-revealed-were-luke-leia-intended-to-be-twins-when-they-kissed-in-empire/ – not 100% definitive, but it seems likely from the various drafts of the Empire screenplays and comments from those who were involved.

    I read that draft years ago IIRC and Vader wasn’t even his father yet so it isn’t surprising that the sister thing wasn’t there.  Not sure that’s smoking gun.

     

    Ended up watching the special editions (we usually watch the DVDs of the unaltered) or whatever this weekend and it’s even worse than I remembered.  Ignoring stuff like Han shot first, nearly every CGI add in is an abortion.  Mos Eisley looks like shit.  The added dewbacks the stormtroopers ride are terrible.  Wolfman? Gone from the cantina.  Sy Snoodles is so fucking bad.  We’ve discussed force ghost Anakin on the board before.  That along with the cheering planets and lack of Yub Nub song make the end of it nearly unwatchable.  Lucas is a Hollywood celeb who can’t stop fucking up his face through plastic surgery.

    The only decent CGI add-in was the shot of the X-wings on the way to the Death Star.  The other ones were crap.

    I wish Lucas would figure out a way to buy a pair of jeans from 2015. For a guy w 4 billion, he has the WORST jean game in the biz.

    The next Star Wars, if it isn’t top 3 at best, i’ll be disappointed.

    What is our hopes for Rogue One? Is that supposed to be an intergalactic Platoon or Hamburger Hill?

    I think it’s basically supposed to be a heist movie right?

    That would be great. I have no expectations on that one.    If it can fall in between The Return of the Jedi and Ewok Adventure i’ll be satisfied.

    had the kid at Toys R Us earlier, that weird ship Leia arrives in is a B wing with a passenger compartment in the middle, at least according to the fine folks at Lego
