    I'm excited as well, but not so excited that I'll have to see it right away. Will probably wait at least a few days so it's not so busy.

    Oh, good, another Star Wars thread.
    Do you want to know the shocking secret?
    Really?
    Luke Skywalker will be the bad guy.
    Rylo Ken? REALLY? That gawdawful one-letter-shift transposition bit only worked once, and that was HAL from 2001.



    Incidentally this is quite fun. No reason at all why people should consider Star Wars fans... unbalanced.

    Star Wars cultists "super-fans" are pure cancer, especially the "prequel apologists."

    I certainly want to see the new films but I'm happy to wait until they're available for streaming. I'm NOT sharing air in a cinema with a zillion rabid SW fans.

    Baw-ha-ha-ha. Problem glasses and valley girl mannerisms aside, I love you (until I forget all about you in T-minus five... four... ).

    Kegs, Z and I are going to do the same. Probably go on a Sunday midday.

    I saw some pic recently via FB about some dude buying $2000 worth of tickets only to have the whole theater to himself. Was that you, Dredd?

    That's hilarious! I wonder if I promise to be silent if I can buy a ticket from him.
    I can't wait to hear it! Don't spoil it early either, I want the anticipation to build a bit.

    I assume you know it's an act, and she's delightful if you like snark. The hilarious thing is that the beardo-the-wierdo guy is actually on the same anti-SJW pro-GamerGate type gambits.

    I take it you've already seen the other Star Wars Christmas joke?

    I've never actually seen it. I have some friends that used to always talk about it at Christmas parties, but never saw it myself. If I didn't know it was real I would certainly swear that intro was a joke though.

    Goddammit, don't ruin it for me! I want to believe.

    My meager earnings pay for the ongoing therapy* and drugs** that I need to cope with psychological damage caused by Episode II.

    Oh my gosh, are you really THAT old?
    Wait, so episode II caused you more damage than episode I?

    When nine hundred years old you reach, look as good you will not!

    Hey, could be worse:


    P.S.
    Same. Missed Chewbacca and Luke.

    You know what's funny? I only read the link once fmulder posted it. Maybe that'll teach you to post less links!!!

    Very interesting theory though. I haven't watched any star wars movies in years, and tpm hasn't been seen in much longer, but it seems to be very plausible.

    I actually think that Jar-Jar is the least poorly written character in those films. He (sort of) has a character arc, his role is clear (comic relief for babies), and he really only chews up too much screen time in Phantom Menace.

    Now, I realize that that's not saying much. It's like this: if all the elements of the prequels were turds in a waste treatment plant, Jar-Jar's xeno-patty would smell slightly less offensive than all the others. Of course, a turd is still a turd so I'm not sure if I defended Jar-Jar or simply added insult to injury.

    It depends on what day of the week it is. Today I can at least concede that Natalie Portman was pretty in Episode II. That's the nicest thing I've ever said about that film. Episode III, on the other hand is so offensive for so many reasons that I don't even know where to begin.

    Unfortunately, the nice ladies in the white coats are saying that it's time for my medicine* so my list of grievances will have to wait for another day.
