    Star Wars Episode IX (December 2019)

    It's just occurred to me that if BDW's 81 now then he must already have been in his mid-40s when he was in Empire... Jesus he looked great for that age!

    Star Wars Episode IX (December 2019)

    There’s really no harm in giving fans of the original films a little treat in the form of a small part for Lando. I can’t understand why everyone gets so eggy about that stuff - it’s not as if they’ve announced a trilogy of old-Lando spin-offs. It’ll probably be no more than 5-10 mins screen time in a 2.5hr film, and they can easily use the odd special effect to make sure he looks great. By all means make valid criticisms people, but going on and on about Billy Dee Williams coming back (ironically) comes across as a bit unimaginative.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    I like this analysis, and it's made me think of the dark side as something akin to a drug addiction. "Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny". Luke's like someone who found himself drawn to drugs years before, kicked the habit but now has to be constantly fighting against it, and falling off the wagon was always a possibility, no matter how well he appeared to be doing by the end of RotJ.

    Star Wars Episode IX (December 2019)

    My thoughts exactly, only I would add that if we do get another TFA next year then, on the whole, I'll still be very happy with how the sequel trilogy turned out. Two crowd-pleasing adventures bookending a genuinely great middle act doesn't seem that far removed from what we were given between 1977 and 1983, plus this time we'll also have had two fine spin-offs on top, all in the space of four years. What's not to like?
  7. If there isn't an Episode IX thread already then there blimmin' well should be - they've just confirmed that Billy Dee is back as Lando, baby: http://www.theforce.net/story/front/Billy_Dee_Wiliams_To_Reprise_Role_Of_Lando_Calrissian_In_Star_Wars_Episode_IX_181257.asp

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    I love the fact that we can now have an actual, proper top ten of Star Wars movies. Anyway, here’s mine: 1. ESB (obvs) 2. SW (also obvs) 3. TLJ & ROTJ tied for third place (TIEd, I guess...) 5. R1 6. TFA 7. SOLO 8. TPM (always quite liked it, still do, deserves respect for having saga’s best music after ESB) 10. ROTS / AOTC tied for last place (both so bad they’re joint 10th rather than joint 9th, and 9th place just remains empty out of shame).
  9. No problem! I still have it, and I’m more than happy to set it aside for you until you’re ready. Drop me a line tomorrow and I’ll send you the details.

    Shenmue III - PS4/PC | 2019

    See, it's the subtle stuff like this that elevates Shenmue to something so much more than just a game: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ysnet/shenmue-3/posts/2214421?ref=email Who - or what - is that creepy thing on the roof in the background?!
  11. ONE limited edition hardcover copy left (number 249/250, to be precise) - any takers?

    Creed - Rocky's not done yet

    Rocky: 10 Rocky II: 9 Rocky III: 7 Rocky IV: 8 Rocky V: 3 Rocky Balboa: 8 Creed: 9 EDIT: Actually I really want to give Rocky IV a 10, but that'd just be the 12-year-old jerellis1 getting a bit carried away as usual.

    Future Star Wars spinoffs on hold :(

    Yep! Turns out all that happened was they cancelled / postponed a Mos Eisley spin-off that we didn’t even know they’d been working on (and will probably still turn up eventually anyway). Yippee!

    Future Star Wars spinoffs on hold :(

    I don't think there's anything to celebrate about this decision, although I can understand why it was taken. It's a pity though. Solo was a really good film. Not a classic, but a very entertaining couple of hours all the same, with at least a couple of future-classic moments (Han meeting Chewie was the best part for me - I'll be watching that plenty of times in the years to come, for sure). At the end of the day, a bonus Star Wars film every other year meant an extra trip to the cinema with my dad, which it sounds like we won't be getting (at least in 2020) now.
