    Awful is a strong word. It’s not necessary, and is a bit clumsy, but it wasn't as long as it originally felt when I watched it a second and third time. I don’t deny that it could have been handled better though.

    More Things Star Wars

    I very marginally prefer the duel in TESB to the RotJ one. I think the tension is fantastic - it’s the first time Luke and Vader have directly interacted, and it’s the first time Luke has used his lightsaber against a real person (wampas and apparitions aside). It’s such a different end to the first film as well. Rather than saving the day against the odds and getting a medal from a princess, Luke has the crap beaten out of him physically and emotionally and barely escapes with his life.

    Thanks I’m bouncing.

    Thought I’d dig this thread up to let you all know that I’ve got my exam results back and now have a first class degree.

    I thought its charcters were unusually weak. It just jumps around too much for them to develop properly.

    Well sure, and I often can’t decide to give a film a 7 or 8 (TFA, for example). It’s just an unavoidable problem with a small numerical scale.

    Well, my own scale is as follows: 0 - the worst film ever made 1 - diabolical. Truly fucking terrible 2 - so bad it made me angry 3 - solidly bad thoughout, but not offensive like a 2 4 - quite bad, but with moments of good 5 - equally good and bad. Meh. 6 - quite good but with some notable flaws 7 - solidly good, but nothing special 8 - very good and highly enjoyable 9 - one of the Greats 10 - the best film ever made So according to this scale, Solo is a fairly comfortable 7 for me. It gets judged on my own experience, not on how “close” it is to other, better films. For that you’d need a much bigger scale. Edit: added a 0 and changed 1. My scale was lop-sided!

    Unpopular Opinions, Part Deux

    I used to dislike beer, but six months spent living in Germany helped me overcome this terrible personality defect.

    Just saw the film, a bit late to the party. It was good, a solid 7/10. It wasn’t groundbreaking but I didn’t need or even really want it to be.

    Video Games: A Far Cry From E3

    Yeah there’s been progress since I last played the alpha, but it crashes a lot more now. Ramsay Snow is both “cultured” and a “saintly ruler”.

    Video Games: A Far Cry From E3

    I’ve started playing Westeros Total War, the beta for which was released about a month ago. It’s quite fun so far, but clearly still a beta. I negotiated with the Freys to give me military access (without resorting to marrying thei princess) and then met Jaime Lannister outside of Riverrun where he killed two Karstarks. Hmmm... The bastard escaped in this timeline though.

    His Dark Materials Series

    Ooh interesting. He’s a great actor, but I’m just not sure if has the presence necessary to pull off Asriel.

    Then I stand corrected. It didn’t occur to me that it’s a gerund, when on second glance it clearly is.
