  1. NOVEL: Star Wars: Tarkin -- New Novel by James Luceno -- Released 4 November 2014

    Don't remember any discussion of this novel so far. So, I've taken it upon myself to start some.

    I have purchased it, and I'm around a hundred pages in. I plan to do a bit more formal review of...
  2. Re: THE SEQUEL TRILOGY - EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS - Spoilers Allowed

    Well, if the theaters are "select," you can bet your bippy there isn't a one of them in my town.

    If the rumor is true.

    I...

    I'll likely end up getting my first look at it looking at the same...

    Tee-hee, I don't know if that line's genuine, but I like it all the same.

    I hope that's all it is.



    Or longer, I'd imagine...

    And I still haven't spun the disc for the second installment. I think that one's already on my shelf--these days, it's hard to be sure.

  6. Re: THE SEQUEL TRILOGY - EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS - Spoilers Allowed

    I hope not...that would suck as bad as a Black Hole the size of the Local Group.

    If the rumor proves true, I'll probably have to go the Internet route.
  7. Re: THE SEQUEL TRILOGY - EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS - Spoilers Allowed

    Here, at least with earlier SW trailers, they have most definitely been attached, at least initially, to one or two specific films. That's why I chose to suffer through The Waterboy in '98: it was...

    Fascinating.

    I must have been doing a better job of avoiding spoilers than I thought, because I have no idea who these characters are or what their role is, or even is rumored to be. Which is not...
