Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Seriously? Pretty sure, yeah. I forget where I read it but it's supposed to be like a poncho as opposed to cape. Fascinating. I'm going to have to do a little digging on this. That thing just looked like a frillier version of the cape in all the other scenes, not very effective as a poncho.

Re: D-23 Expo July 14-16

What do we want? I can speak only for myself, but, it would drastically increase my confidence in the Mickey Mouse Club if they

1) Apologized for making a hash of The Force Awakens

2) Apologized for making Rogue One

3) Decanonizing Jar Jar Binks would be welcome, as well.

Re: Last Movie Watched

There is one thing that might creep into my mind while I'm watching ANH in the future, arising from having seen R1: the amazing inconsistency in Vader's abilities from the "earlier" film to the "later" film. :laugh: I'm certainly glad they didn't stick to the piss-poor "fighting" we got from him in...

Re: Last Television Show Watched

That said, I'm not having as much fun with it as I did in the earlier seasons, for reasons I won't go into in details about since you're not caught up. Suffice it to say that I think they're having having some trouble because of the constraints production places on the story. I think you're right. ...

What, he has a special, go-to-confrontations-with-traitors cape? (Also, it still looks like it was made from a bedsheet.)

Actually, yes. :laugh:

Although it's for bad weather as opposed to traitor confrontation.

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

I took a look at a few spots in the film yesterday, probably a good twenty minutes of it. A few observations: 1) it was not as bad as I thought it was initially. It still wasn't good, and, since I was buzzing past the boring spots, that may have had a significant effect on my perception. That said, ...

Re: Last Television Show Watched

The X-Files , Season One: "Young at Heart." I continue to be amazed that the program made such an impact at the time, until, of course, I recall the time, which I do just before nodding off and missing the payoff, as I did last night. I don't think I ever saw the first season. Maybe not even the se...

Re: Last Television Show Watched

Humans , Episode 1.8. Interesting, open-ended, but that's what season 2 is for. One criticism I would make is that there a virtual blackout on the technique by which these beings are made, programmed, and operate in this fictional universe. They run off wall current, and have rechargeable batteries...

Reading The Fellowship of the Ring . Really coming to realize that I prefer the films to the books. 1) To each his own, but... 2) There's only one book: it's a single novel, published in three volumes, largely due to economics, paper shortages, and publisher nerves in Britain in the 1950s; 3) I'll ...
