    Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Post-release)

    I can't speak for everyone, but I am not asking for a whole movie trilogy, a single movie, or even a significant amount of time dedicated to Snoke's origin. I would have been perfectly fine with a single paragraph, like Tarkin spoke of the Emperor in ANH. TLJ is the longest SW movie to date, no...

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Post-release)

    And yet, according to the vision that is exactly what happened. Rey was left with Plutt. For all we know, this is the first time he ever did anything like this. Again, it's too bad RJ decided that being cheap and not expanding on Rey's past was the path to take. So you thought I was talking...

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Post-release)

    She is working for pay. That doesn't make Plutt a bad person, it makes him an employer. AT-AT's are not tiny, the body alone is larger than some real houses and she owns a speeder to get into town. In relation to storytelling, it is supposed to show that she comes from humble beginnings, not...

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Post-release)

    Tarkin directly refers to the Emperor and says he dissolved the Imperial Senate and took total control. This is factually way more than we know about how Snoke became a Supreme leader. A little backstory is still backstory. Why is Unkar Plutt a bad person? He raised Rey and how did she turn...

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Post-release)

    There is a difference between the unexpected and subverting an expectation. TLJ does the latter far too much. People like to say that the Emperor had no backstory in the OT. But Tarkin at least gave the line about how the Emperor had dissolved the senate and took total control. If you...

    Ant Man and the Wasp: Portable Ant Man suit

    These were on clearance at my local Walmart stores right after the movie came out. Every store sold out and I haven't seen them come back in stock since.

    Daredevil (Netflix Series)

    Watching the third season. For some reason the camera is moving and jiggling in some scenes like it's a handheld with no stabilization. I don't remember if the prior seasons were like this, but it's kind of bothersome this time around.

    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    Disney picking and choosing what it wants to adopt does not suddenly mean movie Han has a well fleshed out history consisting of EU/Legend stories. Nor does it canonize the novels or sources those bits and pieces came from whole-hog. Even GL relegated all non-movie stories to "alternate...

    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    EU/Legends stories are non-canonical and irrelevant to the movie version of Han Solo.

    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    Do we really need multiple movies about Hans life until he meets Luke and Ben in the Cantina? A New Hope is more than good enough to serve as a "sequel" to Solo. More movies will just make Han an even less mysterious and cool character.

    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    There are several clues that tell you the interior of the slug was not a hard vacuum. Such as the presence of dampness and flying animals, which indicate warmth and a pressurized atmosphere. But mostly, Star Wars is not science-fiction, it's fantasy. It trends toward folly trying to analyze it...

    Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

    It's all I can see now.....:facepalm

    The Definitive Peter Quill/Star-Lord Costume Thread

    As Zlurpo said, the whitesheepleather jacket. I saw it in person at a recent convention and am seriously considering it myself. It's actual leather, not pleather, and very well made.

    Aquaman (Post-release)

    Seems like they're making some kind of honest effort to step away from Snyder's darker version of the JL. And it looks like it's shaping up to be a lot of fun. I'll definitely go see it.
