Re: Star Wars Thread

Watching that made me wonder if at some point in the future someone is going to go back and fix the crappy CGI in the prequels. CGI isn't so much a problem with modern film, it's bad CGI that is the problem. Of course, no amount of CGI improvement could fix the crappy story and bad acting of the pr...

Why not both?


sammy would be too busy looking for the red camera light instead of helping.

Re: The Tech Thread

Any iTunes experts out there? Is it possible to buy a movie from the iTunes store on my phone and not download it? They have Django Unchained for $4.99 today in HD. I'd like to buy it but don't watch the movies on my phone. In any event my phone doesn't even have the memory space to download the HD...

Re: Star Wars Thread

Here's a question I have that is probably really obvious but whatever: Are we supposed to infer that the sith Palpatine bragged about in the prequels, (Darth Plagueis??) created Anakin? I just remember some monologue about him being able to create life and bring people back from the dead. I didn't ...

Re: Star Wars Thread

So what are the possibilities here? I'm throwing out everything I've heard mentioned, whether or not it's likely. 1) She's not related to any of the characters we know, she's just a force sensitive. Possibly had some previous training somehow. 2) She's Kylo's sister. 3) She's Luke's daughter. 4) Sh...

Re: Star Wars Thread

do the rest of the scenes with rey and kylo ren deviate from the book? that piece of dialogue was def not in the movie, so i'm wondering if kylo ren acknowledges her force abilities earlier in the book the guy at lucasfilm who is in charge of continuity or whatever stated that the kylo ren betrayal ...

Re: The Movie Thread

Re: Star Wars Thread

rey's hand-to-hand combat and pilot skills don't require much explanation for me. to the former, the idea that a staff-wielding female 19-year old living alone on a desert planet with a bunch of scoundrels and isn't some sort of sex slave is all the explanation i need to be ok with the idea of her b...

Re: Potpourri Thread

Thanks fellas. I'm sure there will be stiff competition, and not being in Chicago hurts a bit, but I'd be foolish not to at least try. Hopefully my cover letter will be convincing enough. just make your cover letter a full-size image of that fake criterion of black hammer/white lightning and those ...

i think rogue one is a pretty inspired choice for a spinoff. obi-wan might be interesting, but then again, he has had quite a bit of screen time already. i'd love a lando calrissian movie

Re: Star Wars Thread

how do you hide the fact that skywalker has a kid? by the time the massacre happens, if she's old enough to have trained, then everybody and their oldest relative knows that she's a thing. yet here we are in TFA and literally everybody forgot this or thinks it unworthy of mention? Or maybe they do ...

Re: Star Wars Thread

I thought it was pretty much assumed that Rey was a former student. If I remember right (only saw it once so far) her powers only started to "unlock" after Ren's mind reading backfired. Like maybe it knocked something loose. my interpretation of that scene is she learned to harness a litt...

Re: Star Wars Thread

of all the jedi we know about, only two are related. my point being that her being related to a skywalker is in no way a prerequisite to her abilities with the force, as evidenced by all other people with the force that aren't a skywalker Anakin, Luke, Leia (not a Jedi, but capable of being one), h...

Re: Star Wars Thread

so i watched the (don't call it a) flashback/force vision a few times on repeat to try to understand what it actually was, and there's an assumption that this was composed of her lost memories or whatever, but that doesn't really make sense. for one, she was never on cloud city, which is the first s...

third, jedi's don't have kids. except for anakin, a terrible jedi whose selfishness and mental fragility led him to embrace the dark side. i mean seriously, why does everyone seems to think that every character in this movie is the child of some other character. "hrmm maybe fin is lando calris...

Re: Star Wars Thread

Another Rey theory. She's not a Skywalker, she's a survivor of the group of jedi that Luke was training. It would explain some of her quick utilization of jedi skills if it was something that was "coming back" to her, rather than learning the first time. Even better, what if a conflicted ...

WOAH STAR WARS precisely i've only seen it the one time (so far) so i'm a little cloudy on when exactly this becomes clear, but it's in one of the expository dialogue scenes i think. i actually questioned that particular point as a connect-the-dots assumption on my part, but a google search turns u...
