ALL ENCOMPASSING STAR WARS THREAD

Recommended Posts

Isn't the deal that Jar Jar is supposed to be George Lucas' Goofy.

I'm all in on Porgs, by the way, at least until I'm not. I was born in 81 though, so I had no issue at all with Ewoks.

My worst fears about the Porgs involve them turning into a Minion-esque entity.

Probably more like Baby Groot.

Kylo Ren was my favourite of the new characters in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

Its still hard to buy Kylo Ren would belong to Han and Leia on simply a visual basis. Hollywood casting offspring to look nothing like their parents is a pet peeve of mine.

It's all the fault of the moviegoers of 1980, for failing to make The Long Riders the biggest thing since sliced Jesus.

Armond White went back in time to do it. I'm sure to him Phantom Menace is best and Empire is the worst.

Does it really matter what the Tomato meter is for movies that came out in the 70s and 80s?

So the last trailer dropped and basically, Star Wars are assholes for spoiling that last bit.

I have successfully avoided watching any trailers or commercials for Ep. VIII, outside of the first teaser trailer several months ago. If a commercial comes on, I leave the room/change the channel/remove my earbuds. I am going in to this movie 95% spoiler and information free. I've seen the toys and stuff, so know about the Porg and some other new characters, but nothing of who they are or their places in the new film. I'm quite excited. I jokingly said to my wife yesterday I was going to sneak and watch the movie after I get out of work on Thursday night, and I think she reacted to me saying that like I had just told her I have been cheated on her and found out I have another kid with my lover. :D

I tried, but then I saw Thor and Justice League, and they showed the preview before both movies.  I'm really excited to see this one, I'm going to a fan event before the first showing on Thursday, and I'm not motivated to do anything else until then.

He would classify Empire as yet another get whitey apologist movie showcasing the evils of Affirmative Action because a black man was put in charge of Cloud City while Star Wars used the only black actor on the payroll to provide voiceovers and didn't even list him in the credits.

Armound White is the Uncle Ruckus of internet journalism

My best friend who is like a brother to me is mad into Star Wars and he's gradually got me into them. I'm no hardcore aficionado like yous here so my casual take on what I've seen be something something (Family Guy) like this:

1. The Empire Strikes Back.

2. A New Hope.

3. Return of the Jedi.

4. The Force Awakens.

5. Rogue One.

6. Revenge of the Sith.

7. The Phantom Menace.

8. Attack of the Clones.
