Don't get your hopes up that he'll enjoy them if he's seen any other modern film/TV. They literally look comical to them and the pacing is painfully boring.Maybe I will show them to my son for the first time he's seen the OT.. no way to better experience it other than the original way!
This Best Buy-only DVD set was just the laser disk copy on DVD. They didn't even add anything, just slapped it on smaller disks. This is good (and bad).. good because it's VERY original.. Ep IV just says STAR WARS.. bad because.. well it's very rough to watch apparently.I thought the originals were only issued digitally on laser disk.
Truth.. though I bought Superman: The Movie in 4K to watch a couple weeks back and sat down to watch it.. and oh my god.. it's so freaking slow. I made it to about when he's gonna land on earth and turned it off for something else.. I did not remember the part in the beginning on Krypton taking so long. Zod and them were in the first movie?!Don't get your hopes up that he'll enjoy them if he's seen any other modern film/TV. They literally look comical to them and the pacing is painfully boring.
I showed a tween Superman: The Movie, and she cracked up. "What is this?!" MFW . She mysteriously died shortly after. 🤷😈️
*snickers*Yeah, I mean we'll probably get some Ghost Luke in IX but can't be too much. It'll have to be the Rey/Finn/Poe/Kylo show.. which.. ehhh.
Like I said, JJ is going to have to dig deep to pull on whatever nostalgia strings are left to get butts in seats for IX. I am not sure how he'll do it though. Ewoks? Old Lando? Mothball Red Squadron back to save the day?
After watching this trilogy, I'd keep my pecker far away from any "Reylo" shippers. There is nothing approaching a normal, acquaintance relationship in this story, far, far less a romantic one.Boyega is pretty based. He has a right to be pissed. They could have made him a force-sensitive ex-stormtrooper, but instead they made him a stock black side character at best (TROS), and at worst, like something out of a 1930s film (TFA).
That was the flaw in Force Awakens. Star Killer base basically obliterated the New Republic and no one cared because we were worried about it killing a resistance base of 100 extras.Yeah, and kind of intrigue on the ship could have/would have gone a lone way towards explaining her reticence towards revealing their plans. Though, at that point in the movie, clearly a TON of people on the ship know what is going on because the transports aren't secretly being filled either.. it really just seems like she's purposefully only keeping Poe out of the loop.. which again, is just inexcusably bitchy.
The best part out of Canto Bite was the revelation that the arms companies were making X-Wings & TIE Fighters.. but of course that was never mentioned again or even relevant ever again, which seemed like it could have gone in an interesting direction.
And yes, the First Order was never allowed to have the same sort of gravitas that the Empire had, which is a shame. It never made sense to me how after TFA they were suddenly in control of the galaxy in TLJ.. like literally hours had passed since the Resistance blew up Star Killer base.. wtf.
Which was a huge disservice. I'm not sure how they fucked that up. I mean, obviously it parallels ANH.. Death Star destroys a whole planet of people we don't know (Alderaan), but then we're worried about them taking out the small rebel force we literally just met as the audience. However.. somehow it works. I think because it's all new. By TFA we all knew who these characters were previously, so we wanted to see how the universe grew and expanded since then.. but we got nothing, just kaboom New Republic, and oh, look there's a Resistance! It's always stuck in my craw that there was a Resistance WHILE there was a Republic.That was the flaw in Force Awakens. Star Killer base basically obliterated the New Republic and no one cared because we were worried about it killing a resistance base of 100 extras.
Yeah I have no idea, outside of the man-hating Holdo and MAYBE the lesbian kiss in TROS, I felt like the woke-level was kind of all over the place. Nothing about Finn seemed woke. He's black, but none of it was ABOUT him being black. Same with Rey, she was a super-powered woman, but I don't think any of it was especially focused on the fact that she was awesome was strictly because she was a woman.Let’s be honest: TLJ and the rest of the ST was designed to supersize the OT, grab a new female/woke market, and cash in. It went to an absurd level on all but the last, which petered out as the original fans finally gave up on it.
