Star Wars Movie Thread


#2044

This really has been a bumper year for genre movies. Alien, blade runner, star wars, multiple marvel and DC movies. We are spoilt.

That’s gotten me excited the way the trailer didn’t. :grinning:
Watching Carrie on screen is going to be tough though


#2047

John Boyega’s charming as ever. And I forgot that Laura Dern is going to be in this!


#2048

Oh, yeah.

It’s rough watching the OT now. My heart breaks a little every time I see Leia.

Same with Spock in Star Trek and Snape in Harry Potter.


#2049

Oh that little clip is amazing. Somebody gif Daisy Ridley’s “I just arrived by helicopter bitchessss!” strut at 1:01, iconic stuff.


#2050

Also; space penguins!


#2051

Porgs! Nice to finally see them in the flesh.

That was neat. And I like that they’re emphasising that this will be a different kind of Star Wars movie. We’ll see whether it actually is, but it’s good to know that they think that’s how they should market it.

I hadn’t realised until now that this was actually written only by Johnson (after Hamill talked about the story “Ryan” had written, I looked it up and his really are the only credits). That takes some major cojones, for someone filming their first big-budget movie.

But that gives me a lot of hope for that this movie will be what I’d hoped it would - an actually new step in the story, without rehashing anything once again and feeding the nostalgia. And while I don’t think Johnson’s writing is spectacular, it’s pretty good (I liked Brick’s script better than Looper’s) and I am now hoping this will be actually interesting Star Wars movie.

I think we’ve seen that Disney are prepared to step in if they think a film isn’t going well, so they must like Rian’s approach.


#2054

Which probably also means it won’t be too daring, but then it doesn’t need to be. It’ll still be Star Wars and give us what we expect from a Star Wars movie, and that’s fine.


#2055

Maybe Kasdan was too busy being grumpy on the Han Solo set to see what madness Rian was cooking up?
At least that’s what I’m hoping for.

Official synopsis:


#2057

Porgs = The BB-8 cash cow opportunity of TLJ. Pre-order your plush porg now!

Kate Monster: Finally, I get to teach a whole lesson all by myself. And I’m gonna teach something relevant, something modern - the Internet! The Internet is really really great,
Trekkie Monster: For porg!
Kate: I’ve got a fast connection so I don’t have to wait.
Trekkie: For porg!
Kate: What? There’s always some new site.
Trekkie: For porg!
Kate: I browse all day and night.
Trekkie: For porg!
Kate: It’s like I’m surfing at the speed of light…
Trekkie: For porg!
Kate: Trekkie!
Trekkie: The Internet is for porg!
Kate: Trekkie!
Trekkie: The Internet is for porg!
Kate: What are you doing!?
Trekkie: Why you think the net was born? Porg! Porg! Porg!


#2058

Mark it NSFW, most employers frown upon looking at online images of Porg in the office.


#2059

Look, if you can’t type properly, that’s your problem. Never mind knowing what you should and shouldn’t be looking at while at work.


#2060

Rewatching Rogue One (it’s now on Netflix).

Acting wise it is as bad as anything Hayden and Portman did, I’m sorry. Every line lands like a brick.


#2061

But … we still have hope, Robert.
Rebellions are built on hope!

Etc.


#2063

Well maybe it’s time we had a NEW hope!


#2064

I’d like to think if Fisher had died six months earlier they wouldn’t have ended the film with a ghoulish CGI rendition of her.
