    Westworld VIII: Forging On

    It looked like she had 3 or 4. What did she do with her father's that contained all the data? That's also a good question as to who is in Hale. Could she inhabit both bodies? Also, did Stubbs confirm he is actually a Host or was he just being cheeky? He's been my guess as to who Ford was building in season 1 in his secret lab.

    What a brilliant finale but bloody Hell, that post-credit scene. William has been shot multiple times, beaten half to death and gets part of his hand blown off yet still hasn't died. That's why I started to believe he may have been a host after the last ep. I think I'm going to go with the popular theory that he has completely lost his mind and that last scene was more of that.

    HBO's Westworld VII: Abort?.Retry.Fail

    So that really was Emily and William is the first successful human mind downloaded into a host????
  4. The smoking gun may be that the writer only told the team about 2 suspected burner accounts yet all 5 went private after the conversation. I don't think it matters if it was only his wife or son. They were pushing inside medical information. That should be an instant firing.

    The price tag for the movie was also enormous, $250 million making it one of the most expensive movies of all time. The reason for the price tag was the issues with the first directors which required hiring Ron Howard to do massive re-shoots. When you add in the costs for marketing, the break-even number jumps up considerably. I recall reading that Justice League, which cost $300 million, needed to gross $750 million to turn a profit. It didn't.

    The first half of this episode dragged for me: characters walking here, characters riding there and not much really happening. It was starting to remind of a damn Robert Jordan book. But wow did shit go down in the second. I don't know what was more awesome, Dolores and crew riding the train INTO the mesa ready for war or Anthony Hopkins appearing in that last scene. I was right about him still being a part of the show but very wrong on how. I never believed he was truly gone, especially when I considered the scene where he had Bernard kill Theresa and he uttered this epic line "Did you really think I would let you take it from me?". Given his God-Complex, I didn't think he could truly give up control of the park. I was however wrong about the means in which he achieved his immortality. First I thought he built a host for himself that stood in for him when Dolores shot him. Then I thought he built that host as a means to download his consciousness into it using that orb that Bernard took from Delos' secret lab. Now it looks like he has in fact downloaded his consciousness into the park's database, as others have theorized. I'm just glad Anthony Hopkins is back, even if it's for a few episodes. It's funny, too, because last night I made special note that all season the opening credits for the main cast ended with "With Ed Harris". I'm sure next week's episode will have "With Ed Harris And Anthony Hopkins". I'm now becoming obsessed with finding out who Ford made that host for. It's not Ford. I hadn't even considered that it could be Emily. I suspect that is a Red Herring, though. Ford probably isn't that petty.

    Well first off, he DID shoot first with Beckett. My understanding is that this film takes place 10 years before ANH. Throughout this film Han is young, cocky but idealistic in what he wants. The cracks begin to show, however, when he is betrayed first by his mentor then by the woman he loves. I came away from the film thinking that the next 10 years will be a continuation of double crosses and personal losses that will turn him into the jaded smuggler we see in ANH that always has an angle for himself and always shoots first. He essentially turned into Beckett. But the idealistic kid we see in this film is still in there. Why else would he have come back to help that other "kid" on a suicide mission?

    I mostly disliked TLJ and was pretty meh about seeing this one but tagged along with my dad and daughter today. Color me shocked but I loved it. I actually really liked the performance of the new Han Solo and felt he captured the essence of the character. The one downside (pun intended) was that he is noticeably shorter than Harrison Ford but I'm willing to hand wave that away. I'll bet what sold the casting directors was this guy has that iconic Han Solo grin. Plot-wise, it was mostly good though it dipped a bit after the Kessel Run. It probably had one too many backstabs near the end but overall I thought they stuck the landing. Probably my biggest gripe was Dryden Voss' decision to send Qi'ra on the mission. They had JUST said that they would be going in as a third party yet then he sends his lieutenant. If the opposition didn't know Tobias Beckett, they'd DEFINITELY know her. What I loved most about the movie was that it mostly stuck to being a heist movie which a Han Solo movie should be. I was thinking about 3/4 through the movie that I loved there was no Jedi, no Force, just ships and blasters and action. But then they brought in Darth Maul which first surprised me then disappointed me. I guess we'll have to see where they are going with it. Though we shall have to see if they have a chance to go forward with it given that this movie cost $250 million to make and isn't exactly tearing up the box office. I wonder how much of it is the continued backlash against TLJ (or as what I've taken to calling that movie, "Hipster Star Wars") and/or the decision to release it May rather than December as the last few have been. I hope the movie does well enough because I would love to have more Han and Chewie movies movies. And more Lando, please!
  9. No, no, no, he was a Hillary supporter! LOCK HER UP!!!
  10. While immortality didn't work for James Delos, I believe it worked for Robert Ford. I think that body that was being built in his secret lab (where Arnold used to speak to Dolores and where Bernard killed Theresa) and the orb Bernard took were both for Ford. He's not a program that is messing with William, he's still alive. My God that was a brilliant episode. I loved the heel realization William had when he watched the Confederado dance with William's wife...he did the exact same thing in season 1 before he killed her. Death, indeed. Poor Elsie. I hope that last shot of Bernard was not foreshadowing that he will indeed finish the job. Kudos to the people who said Grace was in fact William's daughter Emily.

    He seems to think since Trump used private money it wasn't a campaign violation. Is that true?

    Avengers: Infinity War - SPOILERS THREAD

    After watching the newest Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer, I'm more convinced that they will make it to the next Avengers movie. Why? Well, because I suspect they will not actually be IN our universe at the time Thanos does the Finger-Snap of Doom. The trailer has mention of opening up the "Quantum Realm" which is an alternate dimension. Marvel has long used the "Multiverse" theory in which our universe is just one of many. http://marvelcinematicuniverse.wikia.com/wiki/Quantum_Realm http://marvelcinematicuniverse.wikia.com/wiki/Multiverse
  13. I would also guess Eowyn. I recall reading Peter Jackson's first choice for the role was Alison Doody who is best know for her work in Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade. She reportedly declined the role since she had recently given birth. Alison Doody was born in 1966 so it seems they had a clear preference for the age of the actress for that role.
