I keep waiting for half this board to agree on some kind of meetup so they can all just get in a big fistfight with each other and get it over with.

Or, occams razor, it's just s***ty people with s***ty personal beliefs wasting too much time making a s***ty cut of a movie. Not everything's just bait or a joke. I see this insistence every time anyone reacts to anything and it's borderline nihilistic thinking.

I can't think of anyone active on the board right now that needs their ass kicked. Maybe pferreira, though even he has dialed his annoyance back a good amount of late.

It's more that everyone just keeps taking shots at each other over the stupidest things or nothing outright and it's like, f***, just fight and get it over with already, you know?

I don't think "fight" is on most of their minds, to be honest.

first rule of technodrome fight club. you don't talk about technodrome fight club.


just learn to deal with the fact that pot shots are the ways of the internet. either ignore them, or address them, and move on.

95% of the time it's higher ground and easier to ignore 'em....

I'm just glad I don't like people in general.

Unlike the people that fight for either the dumbass right side or the equality *uckwits on the left side, I can actually enjoy things.

pretty much my stance on things these days too.

I don't hate people, but I don't go out of my way to meet them, either.

sometimes I agree with people, sometimes I don't....
I just say what's on my mind, regardless of how people classify what's said, and move on to the next thing to talk about.

one of the latest damage control articles.

That comment by 'kathy'... is this the brilliant successful producer that knows all and sees all seriously asking that question? You didn't see it because it was revealed in the LAST GD movie, you brainless twit. I mean, how do you answer that?

RIP Star Wars. The Jar Jars are in control now.

>>>
9. Luke and co.'s expanded Force powers had to compete with what we've seen before
"I feel like we still offered a modicum of restraint, because we didn't have anyone pulling Star Destroyers out of the sky. And believe me, it came up when Luke came out on to the field, I was, like, 'should he wave his hand and all the walkers blow off like dust?' The things that are in there that are Force moments largely came out of the dramatic moments. (OMG - CONSPIRACY THEORY ALERT) But the Leia thing is an interesting example. It's something that Kathy kept bringing up, which I thought was interesting. She said, 'I've always been intrigued by what Luke says to Leia in Jedi in that she has the power inside her also, and why haven't we seen that?'
>>>.

The latest Star Wars film was simply too smart for most fans. It's too bad they didn't get it.

The Last Jedi was made for more sophisticated fans.

Here-here.

There is nothing wrong with enjoying things and find some aspects of them problematic. But those problematic aspects, don't mean that your first priority in Internet is to scream at top of your lungs at other people: "stop liking what I don't like or you are all nazis".

I wish I could go back to this, I don't like to get political contrary to many of my posts might lead someone to believe, I'm trying to tone it down for the most part, but it just seems that even when you try to avoid it everyone keeps slapping it in your face and bringing politics into everything.

I think a lot of the internet took notice before but I didn't really notice it until 2016, that's when people really went overboard and unavoidable IMHO.

I didn't notice it before either, but thanks to feigbusters, it became UNAVOIDABLE to talk about it. try and talk about the movie, and people constantly brought it up. instantly putting you on one side because of THEIR beliefs...just because you didn't like the movie. and no pointing anything out for them would change their one set mind. that's the only reason I choose the anti SJW stance when I ignored it all before. I could have cared less about all that nonsense before. And I still really don't. But, I feel it's important to point out the crazy and the hypocrisy when it arises.

That movie has all the signs of a dumpster fire in the making, yes. It has the potential to be the first Star Wars bomb, comparatively speaking. If it does, it will be interesting to see the reaction from Disney, who will have to deal with having made and released a turd in the most lucrative brand in the world and figure out how much damage that might do.

I'm looking forward to Solo more than Ep. IX. I don't know, I have a feeling that even though it seems like it'll suck, it could impress me, while I can't think of anything IX could do to change my mind.

I've got to admit, I don't know where I stand on the Solo movie.

I don't really have a lot invested, so I think the only way I'll really be disappointed is if they add Nu Trek level visuals to what should really be a vintage looking production.
