  1. Star Wars Rebels (All Star Wars Spoilers)

    Maybe it's just a reference that the plans had slipped through his fingers twice: once at Scarif where the guy slipped it through the door and on the Tantive where Leia put the plans in the escape pod. He's assuming "no life forms aboard" means no one to stop them. He didn't figure on the wiles of his former co-pilot....
  2. Tolkien 2.0

    I studied in Finland for my Junior year in college. While I'm not great with languages, Finnish stumped me beyond measure. I felt like just another idiot American until a German gal, who spoke most of the languages on the European continent, threw in the towel after three months of rigorous study. The only foreigner who actually caught on was an American who arrived in January, declaring he'd be able to learn it. We all scoffed and rolled our eyes, being 4-month veterans. Sure enough, a month later, he was engaging Finns in philosophical discussions --in Finnish. So. While not impossible to learn, Finnish can challenge even people who excel in languages. Which means, I had no chance in hell. ETA: Speaking of Tolkien and Finnish, I got a copy of Tolkien's Story of Kullervo for Christmas. I haven't read the whole thing yet, but I did dust of my copy of the Kalevala. I figured I'd re-read the original (translation) before reading Tolkien's version.
  3. Star Wars: Episode VIII predictions

    I think kissing his sister really confused him so he swore off all romantic entanglements.
  4. Rogue One....Brings a New Hope. Full Spoiler Discussion

    Oliver Reed died during the filming of Gladiator, so they cobbled together a shot of his saying "Shadows and dust" and used a body double when the soldiers came for him. Originally it was supposed to him who buried the figurines in the arena, not Djimon's character. I haven't been following the series, but they rewrote one of the Fast and Furious movies during post production to explain Paul Walker's character's death. Regardless how they handle it, I'm not through the grieving period yet to think about Leia's exit.
  5. Alien: Covenant (update: trailer)

    He makes Prometheus and gets accused of not making what people want. He makes Alien:C and gets accused of rehashing old ideas. Scott can't win.
  6. Carrie Fisher has passed away

    I heard about an hour ago and am still in shock. The first movie I remember seeing in the theater is the original Star Wars. We will miss her. Her sardonic sense of humor and her wit.
  7. Wise Man's Fear XI

    Feast of Crows, page 685 (hardback edition) They've both under-estimated the effort and time to complete their next volume(s). Calling out Rothuss while giving GRRM a pass is not playing fair. (I know I keep responding to you in this thread, Scot, but it's not because I'm signaling you out. Honest. You just happen to be the last person posting at the time. )
  8. Star Wars Rogue One: Now With Less Rouge

    LAPD Captain: Get ready to fire that tow cable! LAPD Officer: Activate harpoon! Good shot, Janson!
  9. Medici: Masters of Florence (Netflix)

    I love this time period so I'm looking forward to watching it.
  10. Spiderman: Homecoming

    Is Michelle's middle name Jane/Jacelyn/Jade/Jasmin/J-etc? It'd take the pot joke out of MJ's name.
  11. Star Wars Rogue One: Now With Less Rouge

    I find your lack of continuation of the quote meme disturbing....
  12. Star Wars Rogue One: Now With Less Rouge

    Basically, Jedi are like ninjas. Believed to be real, but it's hard to separate reality from myth.
  13. The Collective DCU TVerse -- Lions, Titans, and Supergirls

    Too bad they'll never go all out and get Cavill to cameo too. Hell, if they go that far, get Afleck to cameo Hollywoodland's George Reeves.
  14. Star Wars Rogue One: Now With Less Rouge

    Burn the heretic!
  15. Vikings X: Halfway Through the Madness

    Bumping this to the front page because I forgot it was premiering tonight (until I read the Last Kingdom thread). The first half of season 4 was lack luster, but I'm still looking forward to seeing my favorite vikings again.
