    Careerchat IV

    The previous thread was nearly at 400 posts. Apologies for the unoriginal title. What are the Board’s opinions on applying for a job I was previously rejected for? This was more than 1.5 years ago and I’m living in the same area. I had two interviews with the place but was rejected for unspecified reasons. Does it look good if I apply for the role again with more experience? Will I just look like I have low self esteem? Or is it more likely they Will have no recollection of who I am? I like to think of myself as more employable now, but it’s hard to say because they didn’t tell me why I was rejected. I have improved overall but don’t know if I have improved on whatever I was lacking.

    Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker, a new thread arises

    Leia’s been Force sensitive since the end of Empire. Yoda tells Luke to pass on what he’s learned. I’m surprised anyone’s even raised an eyebrow at this point.

    That’s fair enough, and this sort of thing is of course entirely subjective, but I’ve seen Rogue One at least twice and I don’t know who Chirrut and Baze are, just from those names. I only know who Jyn is because she is supposed to be the main character. I agree that it captured the feel, which is why I liked it overall, but the characterisation was pretty bad.

    Rogue One is enjoyable overall, but I didn’t give two shits about any of the characters apart from the droid. The space battle at the end was great, as were Vader’s scenes, but otherwise it was pretty bland. I’m surprised so many of you are rating it as the best Disney film, while it’s clearly the worst for me.

    I thought it was great, but curious that Will’s age was confirmed as 15. I’d have thought that was too old. Was he going through the same window as Boreal at the end? It was in the same place but in the book

    UK Politics: And Brexit came swirling down

    “Oh you’ve not updated your passport because you’ve not been out of the country for a while? Well you can vote in the election if you want, but it’s going to cost you £75.50” It will be a minority of people, but still too many.

    [SPOILERS] Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker

    It was a 7/10. The first half or 2 thirds were very uneven, but I think they largely pulled it off in the end. Serious whiplash from the title crawl though. If you had gone into the film completely blind from trailers and announcements, the reaction would have been “oh what the fuck?”

    Honestly not sure I agree at all regarding the superfluous scenes. It needs to breathe after all. That said you could probably cut a fair amount of the Magisterium scenes, but I quite enjoy the performances in them.

    Star Wars: The Circle is Almost Complete

    Colin Trevorrow was going to direct IX, but he was fired. I don’t think Johnson was ever involved in it. I’m seeing this tomorrow and I’m honestly not excited, despite really enjoying VIII.

    Yeah I expect it was a budgeting reason. This way they could just model it on actual footage of polar bears fighting. It’s a shame, because it doesn’t make any sense in context. Also disappointed that we didn’t see Iofur’s lower jaw spinning across the room. Great episode though, nitpicks aside.

    I really enjoyed the episode, thought it was pretty hilarious that Lee was told “it’s in your hands”, he loses Lyra in the next scene and then in the trailer for the next episode he gets told it’s up to someone else now. I thought it was nice that they kept the snowball fight but made it a lot less ridiculous.

    I really liked the episode, but agree that it would have been more impactful if Billy had been clutching a fish. Again, it’s just something we have to put up with for budgeting reasons, but when Ma Costa was shouting “where’s his daemon!?”, my first thought was “well where’s yours?”

    From what I remember (I read it 11 years ago), Once Upon a Time in the North was really good, and I’ve not thought about it before but the Lee presented here is more reminiscent of that younger Lee, who I think was more of a shit-stirrer.

    Which will have been deliberate, given that Iofur has forgotten how to bear. Or maybe not forgotten, but is trying to become more like humans.
