I've been a little partial to the WESTAR-35 personally.

Honestly they should install metal detectors at movie theaters. Makes a hell of a lot more sense than not allowing masks and lightsabers.
Won't happen any time soon, and for various reasons. The biggest being cost. I think theaters would probably be more likely to have plain clothes officers in the theaters on big premier nights.

Opening night tickets were so hard to obtain that I don't think terrorists could even get in certain theaters. I'm a ticket-buying "expert" in LA, and it took me nearly three hours of constantly refreshing online just to secure four crappy seats. Granted, terrorists could obviously buy tickets to another movie, or just shoot/fight their way past an usher or two, but if they want to actually be IN the theater before unloading, it's going to be pretty hard to get into a lot of the big-city theaters opening night without a ticket. And I seriously doubt they were online contending with all the nerds and fanboys trying to get seats last month. That said, I'm definitely going to be on high alert, especially given that I'll be at the most popular theater opening night in the movie capitol of the world.

And it was one of the most memorable of my life because I actually did feel like a kid again.

So it appears as though one of the droids from TCW is rumored to show up in TFA. That droid is R2-KT. Here's io9's article on how R2-KT came to be.

Stories like this are why fandom is so awesome. It really only takes a tiny bit of common ground to bring people together.

The madness is now invading our house despite the wife's protests. My twins enjoyed their Force Awakens squeeze yogurts today. My Star Wars fan had the Rey one, the half-fan enjoyed the R2/3PO one.

We also had this conversation.

Twin A picks out Rey yogurt.

Twin B: "Princess Leia!"
Twin A: "That's not Princess Leia."
Dad: "That's her daughter, probably."
Twin B: "Princess Leia's her mommy?"
Dad: "Probably, it's still just a rumor right now, but that's what most people think."
Twin A: "What's a rumor?"
Dad: "It's when people think something is true, but they're not sure."
Twin A: "Like when Darth Vader said Luke was his son."
Dad: "I am buying you a car."

No way dude... never with a chick that can kick you ass... because she will!!!!!

But still, Rey is gonna be an awesome warrior in these flicks. Congrats you femnazis, you got a white conservative male from Texas rooting for a female protagonist. See, we can be reasonable after all............... just don't make her one of the gays!

I have a feeling that Luke has gone into recluse mode for a bunch of years in search of Jedi artifacts. Of course, he discovered Bastila Shan's double-bladed yellow light saber and he will give it to his daughter, Rey.

Completely unsubstantiated, but it would be cool...

I've been saying it. We need a double-bladed badass Jedi.

Took my wife to see Phantom of the Opera last night at the Hobby Center in Houston. Before the show I was standing up and looking around and she said, "It's really amazing, right?" and I replied "Actually, I was thinking about how awesome the crowd is going to be at Star Wars in a few weeks."

Daisy Ridley, star of the new Star Wars film, has revealed JJ Abrams criticised her acting as 'wooden' on her first day of filming.

In an interview to be published in the January issue of Glamour, the actor said, "JJ probably doesn't remember telling me that my performance was wooden. This was the first day! And I honestly wanted to die.

"I thought I was gonna cry," she continues. "I couldn't breathe. And there was so many crew there, because obviously all the creatures [had stand-ins], and there were loads of extra crew making sure everyone was safe because it was so hot. It was awful."
Damn, JJ. Ruthless. Guess he was really trying to avoid Lucas' mistakes.

Thanks for this. Was gonna post something like this later today. Hopefully they announce some Colbert and Conan appearances for next week.

Also, JJ is on Stern right now. Damn, the one day I'm not driving to work.

That article also mentions Boyega saying he's not sure if the film will meet expectations. Dang... that and the Ridley "wooden" comments................................. *prepares for Phantom Menace part deux*

This movie has been hyped and scrutinized to so many levels that of course it won't meet expectations. I don't understand why people haven't figured this out and end up hurting themselves in the long run

The biggest mistake he's avoided so far that George Lucas never could was letting George Lucas be involved.

TBH, there's almost no way it would meet the hype and expectations unless it is the greatest film in all of cinema history.

It is a possibility, we all thought PM looked so cool in the previews. BB-8 could be the new jarjar binks. Let's just hope it's not.

so JJ address the issue on the first day as opposed to George who didn't address Natalie Portman's wooden acting for 3 films.

it's in the right hands.

FYI... the Jedi Council guys from Collider (last weeks episode) said they had talked with a couple people that had seen the film. No spoilers even hinted at, they just said the response was VERY positive from these individuals. One said he wasn't sure if it was better than Empire, but the fact that it was even in the same ballpark seems very encouraging.

Unless this is as good as episodes IV or V, there will be people that will complain about it. The movie is going to be dissected and all its faults will be overblown. It doesn't have to be great for me to be happy.
