Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer

So I'm rewatching TFA for the first time in months

Yeah this movie is still fucking good.

Gunna see if I can piece something together in accordance with the newest trailer.
 
See im torn on Daisy, I think her lack of acting experience showed up in certain places in TFA, that being said in no way do I think it was a bad performance, I think its clear she grew into the role and I am looking forward to the next film to see her have more range.

Driver I think put much more into Kylo than actually existed in the script and given his body of work is clearly and incredible actor, they discussed this on Rebel Force Radio with Sam Witwer when they were doing the commentary but the "mask acting" Driver does is phenominal, when talking to vader, when emoting, its really really really hard stuff to do and he nails it.

That is different than saying Kylo is an incredible acting performance, or an incredible character, so far to me he is interesting not iconic, but I do think Driver gives more to his character so far than the others.
Apparently in a few scenes he actually had his mask off but they edited it in with CGI.
 
Thanks...

I'm about to get into the new canon... By y'alls opinions is it worth getting into now or is it still rocky and bare bones
I agree with Pizza's assessment for the most part, and am very hopeful that Thrawn will survive past Episode VI. We don't know his fate just yet. Speaking of Thrawn, make sure to read Zahn's book, it's easily the best written piece of the new canon. While I've enjoyed a good deal of the new stuff, and find that on average it is far better than a good chuck of post Hand of Thrawn EU content, the prose itself for a lot of the books has left me wanting quite a bit.

The books I've enjoyed reading the most were Tarkin and Thrawn. While I like Bloodlines, I made the mistake of reading it around the same time I started re-reading the X-Wing novels and found that I vastly preferred their style of presentation (still a solid read though). There's something about the word flow I prefer in those books, can't really put my finger on it. Speaking of which, I need to warn you that the Aftermath books are a slog to get through, which is disappointing considering that the actual content contains the most interesting parts of the new canon by virtue of taking place in the VI-VII gap. I don't have any problems throwing them under the bus, the format is a bit scattered and not anywhere near as smooth as the rest of the new canon books. But as always, YMMV.

It was hard to lose the EU, but it kinda needed to be done, and so far it's looking like the soft reboot was all worth it. All I need is for VIII to blow me away for me to concede that.

And if Mara Jade ever shows up, then I'll be firmly on canon is better from then on out, though it's looking like that dream is dead...

I would fucking flip if that happened, whose to say there isn't a reference or hint in the han solo film

Loved it when i watched it first in theatres, still really like it.

But ofc the most popular movies gets alot of backlash cus reasons and it's always exciting being contrarians.

Also enjoyed most of Rogue One. Like most people the Vader scene in the end gave me a boner and the battle in the end was really well made too.
 
I think it's more an excuse to give out $4 of hokey plastic/posters and get triple the money back. They'll want to promote Solo more widespread when they're ready to.

I didn't go for the fan event. I'd rather wait and see the movie a couple hours later on a true IMAX screen. The movie is what it's all about and I'm not about to downgrade my screen for some swag. For people without that option it might be worth the extra fun, but when my choice is between an average screen+swag or the real deal imax, the choice is obvious. I know what I'm here for.

I disliked TFA after I saw it, not everyone that dislikes it is doing it because it's "cool" to do. I put it right up there with Jurassic World in terms of new movies that people seemed to go gaga over for nostalgic reasons when the movie itself was just extremely shallow and devoid of anything that really let it stand on its own, to me at least.

On the flip side I loved Rogue One and that Vader scene was amazing.

Just hope they learned from some of the criticism of TFA and are not afraid to make a movie that stands on its own rather then calling back to so much of the OT.

Idk if you guys have it in the US but, UltraAVX+Dbox is actually a pretty nice experience. Saw Alien Covenant like that and had a great time when shit was hitting the fan, I imagine I'll feel similarly here.

Also price was worth it if I get a poster.
 
All the discussion about this traiker encouraged me to rewatch the trailer for The Force Awakens and I forgot how powerful it is when you see the Falcon flying for the first time in decades as Han Solo and the Princess starts playing in the background. Could still make me sniffle a little bit.
 
I’ve watched TFA so many times I’ve lost count.

There are three Star Wars movies I’ve watched over and over again in my life: The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and The Force Awakens. I’ve only seen Rogue One twice; once in the theater, and once when I got the Blu Ray.

I love the idea of having more Star Wars films to enjoy, so I’m all for the anthology series. At the end of the day, I just want entertaining Star Wars content. This new trilogy, for me, started off on the right foot, by giving me an entertaining Star Wars movie with characters that I actually like and want to see more of. Rey, Finn, Kylo Ren, and Poe are enough to anchor these movies for me. I loved seeing Han, Leia, Chewie, and R2, but what shocked me the most was that if they weren’t in episodes 8 and 9, I wouldn’t have been too upset about it.

I love how they integrated the old with the new, but if they had dropped the ball with Rey, Finn, and Kylo Ren, I’d have lost interest in this new trilogy for sure. It’s not even JJ’s mystery box that has me excit’s for the future movies. I legit want to see what happens to these new characters. My only hope is the old characters get proper send offs (not meaning their deaths necessarily, but their tactful exit from future Star Wars movies).

Star Wars is as generational as the protagonists of their movies, so it’s cool to see my nieces and nephews being hyped for a series I’ve loved since the 80’s (I wasn’t born when ANH released, and I was 4 when RotJ released, so I didn’t get to see the trilogy until a few years later, when I was six).

Part of being generational is establishing strong new faces that can excite new young fans, and still entertain the old ones like me.

I remember watching TFA with my wife, sister, and her twins, and when Rey pulls the lightsaber into her hand after Finn gets tko’d, I heard her go “YES!” and break into applause like the rest of the audience. She was so hyped to see a girl being a heroic badass.

She didn’t hate the OT, and she thought they were good, but TFA made her a Star Wars fan, like their mom, and uncle, and it’s just really awesome to have that commonality between us all.

We doing lists? LETS DO THIS

1. The Force Awakens
2. Empire Strikes Back
3. A New Hope
4. Rogue One
5. Return of the Jedi
6. Revenge of the Sith

Then why down here some where

7. The Phantom Menace
9. Attack of the Clones

Episode III is a movie that wants to be shit but still ends up being good while the other two prequels succeed at being shit.
 
1.) Empire strikes back
2.) Return of the Jedi
3.) Rogue One
4.) A New Hope
5.) The Force Awakens





6.) Revenge of the Sith



7.) The phantom Menace






8.) Attack of the clones


my list for now. To be honest, the prequel trilogy is similar to Scrubs season 9 - I prefer to pretend it does not exist.
 
Poster above should be banned

Since we're ranking now:

1) The Empire Strikes Back
2) Star Wars
3) The Force Awakens
4) Rogue One
5) Return of the Jedi
6) The Phantom Menace
7) Revenge of the Sith
8) Attack of the Clones

I noted that it "severely injures" the theory of Luke leaving Rey on Jakku, since there are only so many plausible reasons why Luke would choose to abandon a little girl on a desert planet before his spirit had been broken by Ben's betrayal.
Unless it was her mom who ran away with the child years ago and eventually abandoned her.

Church folks on Jakku, Luke hangs out with them, gets one pregnant, she doesn't tell him, he leaves the planet to go do his stuff, and for whatever reason she and her family dumps the child to Unkar Plutt in exchange for a ticket off the planet, maybe fearing the kid will grow up like Vader.

Luke would have never known he had a child, and her mother/family dumped her out of fear and ran away from the church. Heck maybe they were excommunicated, who knows.
