I'm way behind on this, and I've only seen S1-S2 so far, but damn ... this show is spectacular. How did SyFy get their hands on this in the first place? They haven't done anything worth a damn since...

That video makes no sense to me. He suggests the film would have been better had Luke found redemption and saved the day in an epic blaze of glory. Um ... that's exactly what he did. He saved the...

I don't think it's about money. Killing Luke doesn't help them moneywise. The money move is to make a bunch of crappy movies with old Han running around going "pew pew" and old-man Luke fighting...

Also, I reject the narrative that "Solo" is a flop because people didn't like "The Last Jedi". I liked/loved all 3 of the new films, but couldn't muster any enthusiasm for "Solo". I went to see it...

The Motley Fool article shows a lack of understanding of Mark Hamill. There is nothing "shocking" about anything he says, as he's made a career of not giving a flying fuck what anyone thinks about...

Like others, I don't really want this. Joe is a wonderful writer, but I don't see this as his bag. If it happened, though, I guarantee you the protagonist is named Laurel.

As for LucasFilm, I'm...

I seriously doubt there's any boycotting going on. "Solo" simply didn't look that interesting to me. I only went because my daughter wanted to go. This is the first time since the prequels that...

This review captures my feelings: "Solo is fun, flawed and ultimately forgettable. It's an amiable popcorn adventure... and sometimes that's all you need." It's fine. I didn't hate it. Laughed at a...

Not only has this story idea been around since before B5, but JMS actually experienced some random fan posting the idea independent of his episode already. Weird that he'd post about this without...

It may be your theater. First time I saw it was 3-D, and it was crisp and clear. Second time was 2-D, and it was 30% darker and really hard to make out some scenes.

Wow. She's terribly annoying. I'll just trust your summary, because there's no way I can sit through that. Seems like a gross oversimplification, though. I'm sure there are people who only love...

I get that they're trying to teach Poe a lesson, but come on.

It's interesting how all our reactions seem to change with time. I think that speaks to how embedded this franchise is into our core,...

I don't think that's likely. It seemed like TLJ intentionally pulled from both Empire and Jedi to cover all that material already. There's really only one piece of ROTJ that isn't a bunch of...

I don't buy this for a second. Hamill doesn't shill. His reactions -- from not liking the way they wrote Luke in the beginning to ultimately appreciating the final product -- are honest. That's just...

I didn't like this subplot, but it had a number of consequences:

1) It grew Finn's character even more. He had grown from complete self-interest to self-interest+Rey, but it wasn't until his trip...

For a fleeting moment. I don't love this aspect of the story, but they made it clear that it was a very brief -- if ill-timed -- moment of weakness.
