they did that with Force Awakens too. almost made it look like an original movie and not just a note for note remake of the original star wars only without the daggy mullets.

I like what they were going for in the trailer. Anyone notice that there's a new trend in trailers that show you bits of the movie but doesn't tell you anything about the plot?

 

Yeah I'm with that too, the filmmakers/marketing team are being more aware of just how much they're showing I guess...and honestly, with something huge like Star Wars, do we need to have really any idea about the plot? I mean, it's Star Wars, you know what you're going to get basically, no need to get into the weeds of details...show some goodies and baddies with light sabers and robots speeding around, maybe a couple aliens, quick shots of side characters, done.

Finally got around to watching the Last Jedi. I honestly thought it was a bit better than the Force Awakens but they’re both pretty bad

For those on the hype train only. This is what happened at the Star Wars Conference after the trailer was shown for the first time (skip to 2:30):

 

 

There are better quality videos of this, but something about seeing in the context of people going effin' bonkers apeshit at the Conference makes me enjoy it more.  

 

EDIT: Also, can someone explain to me why some youtube videos embed and others just show the link?

thought the laugh at the end actually sounded more like the Joker than the the Emperor. 

checked the imdb listing and .... yep!!

Spoiler

Mark Hamill is listed because he does the voiceover narration... Ian McDirmand (aka the Emperor from ROTJ) did the laugh.

it is actually the other way around, at least for me, with chrome, every time i copy paste a link from youtube i need to use the unlink button above, or, paste the link as text...
  • when copying the link it will show up purple colored:
post-155-0-24825200-1555359881.jpg
  • next i select it and use the unlink button:
post-155-0-02576000-1555359886.jpg
  • purple color is gone and the link is simply text, same as if i'd paste it as text but i dunno if other browsers have that option:

As far as the modern blockbuster goes, TFA & TLJ were actually worth buying a ticket for, so I'll probably turn up for this. Not day 1 or anything, but maybe day 30.

 

I admit to kind of loving Force Awakens. It has that special something which A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back had. Coming from someone who had never raved about a JJ Abrams film, I was surprised by how much I took to it. I guess I like SW best before it goes all trilogy angst on us.

argh- that was disgusting to watch.

 

also the title seems less inspired than the original trilogy.

The bootleg recording of the clip that played in Star Wars celebration of the live-action series The Mandalorian made it seems like it could be a fun series. They should have released the sizzle reel for it online, but instead they thought it would be great for poorly filmed bootleg to be the audience first look at the first live-action Star Wars series ever.

These reviews of TFA and TLJ at kit-bashed are the most earnest and no-frills I've read. I relate to them because I was able to enjoy these greatly while having a fair number of gripes. 

 

I saw TFA in theaters, a rare treat for my wife and I now that we have kids. In fact that might have been the last film I went to. I watched TLJ in two sessions on Netflix. I enjoyed Rogue 1 and even the more imperfect Solo on the surface level more than the TFA and TLJ. I dug the gritty pulp fiction-y aspect of these a lot. Clear contained plots over a vague muddled mess of the new trilogy.

 

I enjoyed the RLM recaps almost as much as the films themselves. I'm glad the insane neckbeard vitriol, which let's be frank, stems from their reckoning that they can't live vicariously through female and minority cast members, has been called out in various op-eds. Just about every anti-SJW conspiracy claim can be debunked: Captain Phasma was no more a toy plug than Boba Fett in ESB. Luke was as much a Mary Sue in pre-reveal ANH as Rey. Rose Tico actually resembles a real female miltiary enlistee. I only wish there were more high profile critics read to point out that the TLJ was a confused, directionless, mess that has boxed the overall plot into a very limited outcome - safe AF or weird as shit and the latter will not win out. We're not going to get a X-Wing assault that cuts to a black screen as Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" plays. The Rise of Skywalker isn't going to end with Rey screaming like Laura Palmer on some bizarre nightmare planet after Kylo destroys the universe ins some apocalyptic Sith meltdown. 

 

I read one encouraging thing on some unnoticed reddit comment: "Rian Johnson decided to start over in mid-trilogy, and now we'll see JJ Abrams be forced to open his own mystery boxes for the first time in his career."

 

We might not get a mediocre feel-good Lost-esque ending after all. I'm skeptical but this could end in an interesting way.

Quintessential "to each their own" / "i get it but i don't get it" example

 

I'll chuckle at harmless fanatics and zealot fans like anyone else but I cannot muster the level of cynicism some people like to espouse.

 

Sure I got a chill seeing Lando and I'm the point where I am genuinely attached to Rey and Finn. I am no way as excited as I was for TFA. I'll never get the same thrill of watching much of the post-Disney media as I will watching A New Hope for the 420th time. I literally dosed off watching it a few weekends ago with my kids. The non-cynical enjoyment I had with the prequels will never be replicated either. And that's ok. It's kind of liberating to enjoy a film without such heavy emotional and mental investment. That and the internet has made it so much easier to dive into the very niche EU stuff I like and find recs for other sci-fi / space opera stuff of that era.

 

I like what they were going for in the trailer. Anyone notice that there's a new trend in trailers that show you bits of the movie but doesn't tell you anything about the plot?

 

also that every SW film involves panting heavi
