Still lots of blowouts today, but lots of 50something to 40somethings, and K-2SO looking for the double bracket buster.


K2SO is the best droid in the series.

Looking back, I would swap 3PO's whiny golden suit for K2 all day and he and R2 would have tore stuff up.

That's actually a pretty awesome thought. And we could conceivably get an R2/K2SO pairing if the Cassian Andor series is still a go.

Send K2 and Chewie out on their own little side missions. That would be great.

Other than the fact that they were saving the Force Lightning for Mace Windu, Palpatine should have been fighting with saber in one hand and wielding the Force in the other in that fight. Otherwise, why don't all 4 Jedi just stab him at the same time? They know he's a sith by then, what the hell did they think he was going to do with the red lightsaber? The Yoda/Dooku, Yoda/Sidious and Windu/Sidious fights should have been 99% force powers.

Don't try to use logic while discussing the prequels.

Maybe Palps didn't want to jack his office all up flinging high voltage all over the place. Pretty posh setup, looked like new carpet too.

Maybe this has been covered, but how did "This is the way" and "I have spoken" not make this bracket?

Holy crap. That's a good call. Both would have made round 2 for sure.

Movies only, otherwise I would have had a ton of stuff from Rebels as well.

Rex: Commander. You got old.
Ahsoka Tano: Had to happen sometime, Rex.


Ezra Bridger: I don't fear you!
Darth Vader: Then you will die braver than most.

Darth Vader: Anakin Skywalker was weak. I destroyed him.
Ahsoka Tano: Then I will avenge his death!
Darth Vader: Revenge is not the Jedi way.
Ahsoka Tano: I am no Jedi!

I am honestly torn on which moment in Star Wars cinema is worse. Poe making a mom joke, or 2 Jedi getting whacked without even swinging their sabers once.

I mean, you could make an excuse for the Jedi and say that Palpatine was using the Force to cloud their minds so that their reactions would be slowed. There's no justification for the mom joke.

Watching my 4k copy of TROS... say what you want about the story... but I really liked how JJ directed his movies. They just feel like Star Wars.

The biggest mistake (screw Disney) was not having the trilogy story cemented at the start. Can't believe they thought they could improvise as they went.

IMO, locking up JJ for all 3 was the way to go.

Yes, I completely agree. For all of the issues with TROS, it definitely felt like a Star Wars movie.

Just finished the rewatch... man, despite the flaws, I got chills when Ben took the sabre from Rey. My daughter (16) spoke up during the scene "I'm sorry, but it doesn't get any better than that! ".

I can't help but agree. Despite the flaws and missed opportunities, that is a completely bad ass Star Wars moment.

They could have also had RJ do all three movies; we would have at least had a coherent, 3 part story.

I don't think TROS has any transition wipes. Not a big deal, but kind of odd.

TFA felt like Star Wars. Rise felt like watching Go Bots cuz your loser buddy thought it was as good as transformers.

When i was 11, my mom told me one day after school that she had been out shopping and found me an elusive Transformer - this was when you literally could not find them anywhere in the stores after the cartoon had come out.

Just before bed she unveiled the TG&Y bag and inside was this effin' Gobot instead.




And even at that young age, I knew something seemed off about the way ol' Crain Brain was animated in the GoBots cartoon.

I always hoped for an Iron Man that had the same size and features and quality as my big G.I. Joe figures.

Found a "Metal Man" either in the toy section at HEB or at Wynn's five and dime store next door.

It was even worse than the Action Jackson I got to try to give G.I. Joe a running buddy.

Oof. The last quote remaining from ROTS, and I've gotta vote against it.
