Remind me, if Abrams just directing, or did he do the story for this as well, like with Awakens?

^What's the practical result? How many scrubbings would it take to undue permanent marker? It seems like when I've gotten a spot from a sharpie on my thumb or something that it took like a week before it was gone.

Rubbing alcohol, such as in hand sanitizer, can get it off with relative ease.

Well, I won't be seeing it until at LEAST after Christmas (and then only if we get movie tickets as a gift). Can't afford to watch movies first run with the whole family.

So I'll TRY to avoid spoilers, but I doubt I'll be successful over that long a wait.

I don't care how many spoilers I hear. I don't have plans to ever see it and if I do break down (I won't say that's impossible--I watch a lot of movies), it'll be when it's on Netflix and I spend no extra money on it.

Although I have a bunch of errands to run, I'm going to try and find time to see it this weekend. I've been contemplating on whether or not to see it at the local IMAX, but geez, it's expensive, and even more so when you order the tickets online. That $4 per ticket convenience fee is a definite deterrent, although I'd like to get my hands on that free poster.

I've just about had it with the trailers showing additional footage. Enough already!

I bought my tickets 2 months ago. Can't wait! Less than 24 hours to go!

Pretty much me. Nobody even bothered to ask if I wanted to see Awakens, and I can't imagine anything giving me the slightest bit of interest to see this one in theaters.

I’m going to the 6 PM showing at a Drafthouse that says there’ll be “exclusive 5 minutes of extra features” which I’m guessing includes a Solo trailer

Angry Video Game Nerd covered Playstation's Star Wars: Masters of Teras Kasi. [Warning for those unfamiliar, AVGN is foul-mouthed and NSFW).

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


This is hilarious to me because I'm very familiar with this game. I still own it and have beaten it (multiple times). I used to play this a lot with a friend and he would often complain about how bad it is and what a notorious rep it had. [All of the faults the nerd lists are true.] I acknowledged all this but still wanted to play (particularly as the over-strong Mara Jade) because (as the nerd says) SW is so ripe for a fighting game and this was the only one.



I would add that one of his points is contradictory. If the lightsabers worked like the movies the game would be even more unbalanced than it already is. It's rather like how in Mortal Kombat a character that's supposed to be human can be stabbed in the chest 12 times and still win. You have to accept these things for a fighting game like you have to accept fifteen seconds of rest heals you in a shooting game.

A piece of crap on a non Star Wars subreddit spoiled it for me a few hours before I left to see it so.....

Just saw it and except for 3 or 4 really cool scenes I think it was boring as hell.

Yo.

saw it last nite @7:15 w/my big bro; I have NO PLANS to ever see it again (not even on cable or to bootleg.)

the conclusion to Luke meeting Rey was excellent in my book, Poe Dameron was _THE MAN_, I could *somewat* accept Lukes reasons for isolating himself like as he did, and I appreciated the fact that SW stopped feeling like such a sausage-fest (even on the Empire side) compared to previous films (didnt think about it as a kid, but when ya look back as an adult, ya cant unsee it).......but wat annoys me is that
ONCE AGAIN a film in the Last Trilogy follows the same story beats from a film in the First Trilogy by taking the got-get-off-Hoth -escape, tweaking so that this time running doesnt gain the Rebellion anything due to "McGuffin tech", and making it so that 90% of the Em/Reb fight is an overly, OVERLY long chase sequence. additionally, becuz this action is a "flight, not fight" -response any talks of going offensive in any way get shut down (and even taking into account the fact that their resources were low, it still made the overall behavior of the Rebel Commmanders so passive-agressive AND annoying that I was close to raging in my seat.) and wat was all of that for? it was so that they could get to an unused mining base that ends up turning into the "Assault the Hoth base" -sequence (complete with old & new school AT-ATs), which just books ends the 1st 20mins of ESB in this film.

if its not clear, let me say it more succinctly: Rian Johnson took the whole of the Hoth-sequence from ESB, and made it the bulk of this film.

sadly, while I was pleased to see Snoke (as a Force user he was no joke), and amused that we had not 1 but *2* asian females on screen (1 of whom had a significant role to play in the film), I think the loss of a rogue-type character (which I think Poe fits into somewat, but becuz he's actually IN the military means he's more curtailed than Han ever was) kinda dulls things more than a lil a bit, and neither the Rey/Luke, Rey/Kylo OR the Finn/Rose -stuff were engaging enuff to warrant a re-watch.

the Star Wars stories I liked watching had great deeds done by ppl willing to risk all when the chips are down, but this film makes a point of saying thats a bad thing......which kills it for me.
:/
