  1. Re: THE SEQUEL TRILOGY - EPISODE VIII - SPOILERS ALLOWED

    If "his" refers to my take, then, yes , that is correct.




    Two answers. First, there's going to be a certain similarity to things that exist in similar conditions. Cows, cats and squirrels...
  2. Re: THE SEQUEL TRILOGY - EPISODE VIII - SPOILERS ALLOWED

    No, not really. It is, as Borgmatrix says, about the modifier First. We know very little about the history of the (fictional) galaxy prior to the prequels, and what we thought we knew has mostly...
  3. Re: THE SEQUEL TRILOGY - EPISODE VIII - SPOILERS ALLOWED

    No, not that. I think the First Order is the original Jedi Order, or what’s left of it.



    Nope. I think that Luke went looking for the First Temple because he became aware of the Original Jedi...

    Jeez, I'm kinda amazed at the lack of spoilery stuff...

    This isn't really a spoiler, but it's something I've been thinking about that might be a spoiler if it turns out to be correct.

    Is it...
  5. Re: May the Fourth Be With You! - 2016, The last one to check in may be eliminated!

    Hmmm.

    June the Fourth, er, Fourth-teenth, be with you!

    So, I'm six weeks late. Ooops. :ohwell:

    I suppose that makes a certain amount of sense...but, wearing the same clothes all the way from Endor to Ahch-To? I could see it with a belt. Or some kind of special Jedi vestment, but, the whole...

    This could only mean one thing: Lucas is Morgoth. Morgoth was cast out, but his influence remained, inherent in the nature of things, because he was there at the creation, and, as Tolkien would...

    Jeez, you mean to tell me for once I got a film first, and watched it before anyone else managed to?

    My copy from Amazon arrived a day early (Monday 4 April), and I watched it for the first time...

    See also, Anakin building Threepio, and Yoda knowing Chewbacca.

    Point being: We passed "too much" decades ago. Besides, what was it Qui-Gon said? "Nothing happens...

    Two films today, a rarity.

    1) Young Frankenstein. Stumbled on it on TCM. Still good. Still probably my 2nd favorite B&W Frankenstein film. "What knockers!" They don't write 'em like that...
  13. Re: THE SEQUEL TRILOGY - EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS - Spoilers Allowed

    I'm not entirely sure I understand. That said, I'll venture that Sauron went all the way back in Middle-earth and before that. The Rings may have been the preoccupation of the Eldar and the...

    The Visit. Yep, the M. Night Shyalaman flick. How far he's fallen.

    Somehow, it escaped me this is more or less a found footage film, prior to seeing it. Though I may have caught on to that, I...
  15. Re: THE SEQUEL TRILOGY - EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS - Spoilers Allowed

    Ah, but the Elven rings were safe so long as Sauron could not wield the Ruling Ring. So all we have to hope is that "Sauron" remains unable to wield the "ring." But who's "Sauron," and what is the...
  16. Re: THE SEQUEL TRILOGY - EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS - Spoilers Allowed

    Conversely, it's the very reason I am drawn to it: the hope that it was uncorrupted by the ideas or assumptions that so deformed the rest of the film. It's like one of the Elven Rings, in a sense.
