  1. Star Wars Rogue One: Now With Less Rouge

    The reason Palpatine lost? Winners don't do monologues.
  2. Disney's Moana...And the Chicken Survives...

    Oh god, the water. The beautiful, beautiful water.
  3. Video Games: Thread Simulator 2016

    And The Last of Us, Part 2, is confirmed. Now that's a nice reveal for December.
  4. Let's decorate a tree! A holiday-themed game

    I'm out. "Common decency." Pah.

    The other white meat.

    Exactly. In all the rush to condemn them as as marketing gimmick for children, people forget they tried to eat Han, Luke and Chewie.
  7. Star Wars Rogue One: Now With Less Rouge

    Heh. I like that one.

    I think you should leave. ETA: I suppose I should have said "I find your lack of faith disturbing." That would have been better. Much to learn, I still have.

    I took a few days time off work for it last year.

    I know someone who'd be happy to help you get there.

    Usually I agree - I'd rather be in a deserted cinema, but for films like Star Wars and some of the new Marvel releases, I actually really like the midnight showings - you tend to get the most committed fans, so everyone behaves well, doesn't talk/use phones during the movie, and get all the references, so you get a great atmosphere. In my experience, at least.

    This is the story of how the Emperor's ultimate weapon was destroyed.

    I think there's definitely been a moderate amount of tonal shift, at least since the earliest trailers, especially with K-2SO, but while I don't mind grim stories, I think it's probably a sensible decision. Star Wars has always had a certain amount of silliness, even during its darker moments, and given the recent track record of the grim-and-gritty approach - looking at you, Batman vs Superman & F4 - it's probably the right approach. Having said that, I think the main tonal shift though is from despair to hope, as evidenced by that awesome new quote - "Save the Rebellion! ...Save the dream!"

    You could cook 'em and serve 'em for dinner.

    I don't think they will, but I think it would be good if they did. Maybe everyone except Jyn and her father. Off screen, of course. Maybe just the rest of them holed and you see Vader heading towards the doorway before the radio goes silent.
