Man, looking at the SW boxoffice stats.. I'm still bummed [SOLO] did so bad. I really enjoyed it. It wasn't amazing or anything, but it was a fun exploration of the SW universe outside the Jedi/etc.

I dont care that Solo did bad, it was just ok for me, but I am bummed that it did bad enough that they cancelled those spin off series and made them into TV shows. I guess TV is where its at now but I would have loved to see a Kenobi movie.

I am also upset (not upset, disappointed) that we didn't get more "A Star Wars Story" movies, as I felt those were better than the ST. There is a whole damn galaxy of stories to mine from the OT time period too!

I really hope the Disney+ show is going to be good, but a movie would have been amazing.

The current stare of SW is what it is but you have to love the memes:

The middle beam better hold as the one on the right didn´t come in the length it was supposed to be built.

That said. I am far along in a huge Legends re-read, re-play and so on and can finally see the worthiness of that was left behind. Some of it needed to leave the canon or at least a simplification for E7-9 to be made but the current New 52 version of it was a huge mistake. PA got the Vong wrong. I don´t hate them anymore. An "alien" 3rd side to the conflict was a good idea. Just not their Force immunity.


I legit like Jacen now (no source material, lol) as his arc made sense and felt complete:
The stuff with his daughter and how he can´t feel a connection to living beings due to his insane powers is really good. His fall is also credible and the "peaceful society" he build leaves a lasting legacy in a way Luke never could.

So after watching the 2:00 Extra documentary on iTunes...I think it’s clear a shitload of blood, sweat and tears went into this. Watching the dailies alone you can see a shitload of content and slower pacing was cut. No big story reveals but they did spend more time explaining Palpatines return more than the movie. Pretty clear to me they had to rush post production and cut story. In other words they broke it in post IMHO.

yeah im watching this doc, it's really good. they honestly should have made Carrie Fisher's daughter into a larger role.

seeing RoS for the first time not in potato cam, at 4k, honestly, it's a pretty nice looking fantasy film. dumb as a rock but fun as sheer spectacle.

I received my Special Edition Skywalker Saga 4K set today. I dont buy physical movies anymore but I figured I would do it for Star Wars. Really cool presentation!

That collection looks stunning! Love the presentation box. How are the bonus features? £200 seems a bit rich for my blood but damn if I'm not tempted.
I literally just got it, havent played anything, but the presentation is really stunning! I used to be a big DVD collector so its fun to get something physical again.
