There go another 5 pages of the Star Wars thread. And we were doing so well with discussions about Resistance and Mandalore.

Honestly, it feels like we're past all that for the most part. There's nothing really new in the article. Bots took a legit, online sentiment and amplified it. Simple as that. I was posting it as a joke more than anything.

The actual study (underlying the article) really just explains that 50% of all criticism online was political. Not that surprising given the movie was overtly political with it's overt SJW themes of rich people are bad, animals need to be freed, girl power!, etc.

My remark was more in anticipation of how some will reply to your post, not the post itself. And then how those replies then seem to feed into themselves like some positive-feedback state machine.

I hear you. Still, I probably shouldn't have posted it. It was all for a dumb Russian bot joke, considering my and most of this board's dislike of the movie is very real. But I'm with Flashdiaz - Let's move along!

Yes, move along.

Re-watched half of Solo with the family last night, only my second viewing. When Han and Qi'ra were trying to get off Corellia, a Storm Trooper at the spaceport is clearly telling bystanders to "move along, move along".

I caught the Bossk reference again. Caught the Scarif reference, definitely missed that one the first time. The dice were obvious, kind of cool they've shown up in the last two movies.

When Han says to Chewie "what, you're 190 years old" that one took me way back to first grade in 1980. Anyone remember those Star Wars story books you could get from book fair? I clearly remember there was a page at the beginning for the ESB story book that had a picture and brief bio for the main characters. Chewbacca was noted as being 200 years old. Solo takes place 10 years before ANH. That was a pretty cool bit of dialogue reaching way back in the canon.

What other references or easter eggs did I miss that anyone else picked up?

My body is ready for a Star Wars tv show. I wonder what kind of intro/opening they will come up with for this show.

interesting question... i'd say a quick logo display like Black Mirror. Rogue One and Solo had quick movie name flashes.

Sweet, I didn't realize they were shooting this in LA. El Segundo is right down the highway from me. Has anything Star Wars ever shot in LA? I feel like it's almost always shot at Pinewood Studios in London or some exotic location...

I don't believe any SW studio shoots have ever been in the US, and I know they've never been in LA for location shots.

No true Star Wars fan is happy with what Lucas and Kennedy have done. There are hundreds of writers of its online fan fiction who could have provided us with superior space opera.

I was expecting him to say that he had known for quite some about the SW show filming in El Segundo but wanted to wait to say anything out of respect.

Not LA, but the Sarlacc sequence of Return of the Jedi was filmed relatively close in Yuma, AZ.

It takes 5 stars to go blue on Politics but 4 on Enertainment? What are the minimum metrics for each board?
redline248
How long do you want to ignore this user?
AG
It's actually only 3 on here, and most boards. General and Politics are 5 and it's 10 on premium. Probably higher than 3 on the zoo, also.

And now I'm feeding it...
Redstone

Staff, would you consider changing the metrics?
Maybe 5 per board, and then 10 for the most highly trafficked, such as Politics?

You know you're in for a good day when you get in the truck, put your music on shuffle, and the first song that plays is "The Throne Room/End Titles."

Bruh:


This would be my walkout music if I was in baseball; it would also be my pre-game headphones song for the spirit walk (along with Noble Men of Kyle, Strategic Air Command, and Them Basses)


Does anyone else mentally hear the Chewbacca "GRRWAARRRRRR" during the song everytime you listen to it? Would be around 1:30-1:35 of the video above.
