Not looking for an argument here, just curious as to your experience, but how did TLJ marketing bait and switch you?

TLJ subverted my expectations but it wasn't the marketing that did it to me.

Was wondering the same thing. I thought that TLJ's marketing was pretty straightforward / fairly representative of the final product.

My feeling, right or wrong, is they have used the older characters to lure in fans expecting to see the old guys kick ass a little and have their own heroic moments. Instead, they've used them more as just plot devices or foils for the new characters.

It's not a secret on here that I was really unhappy with Luke's role in TLJ. My hope was that JJ would find a way to atone for Luke's terrible ending. Instead, based on these comments, it looks like Luke will again just be some type of plot device for Rey. They'll have him in all the marketing, but then not have him really do anything in the movie.

Fair enough. Makes sense.

I agree that what Rian Johnson did with Luke's character was awful. I was also pretty disappointed that Luke was used as a macguffin and didn't even have a speaking part in TFA (even though I did like that movie).

I got a millineum falcon waffle maker for a belated Father's Day gift....that looks like a big millineum falcon.

I know what I'm having in July when we watch ESB

Make sure to pretend you're a giant space worm as you try and bite it as the Millenium Waffle tries to escape.

From what I've seen on youtube, 45 minutes doesn't seem so bad. And it's probably worth mentioning that they have a pretty extensive non-alcoholic menu as well.


Sorry it took me a week to respond.
When you go to Galaxy's Edge, I'll have my wife and twin daughters stand in line with you at the cantina. You let me know how long those 45 minutes seem

So tonight I was out with three friends celebrating one of their birthdays. The one with the birthday is a good friend, and one of his friends was one of the other three guys; someone I've seen / hung out with a handful of times over the years - I guess I'd call him a friend - but he's never been someone I've been super close with.
I can't tell if there are 3 people, 4 people or 50 people based on these sentences.

Also, please ask your friend what his opinion on sand is.

Me + three friends = four people. Not that hard to track.

So tonight I was out with three friends celebrating one of their birthdays. The one with the birthday is a good friend, and one of his friends was one of the other three two guys; someone I've seen / hung out with a handful of times over the years - I guess I'd call him a friend - but he's never been someone I've been super close with.

This was your fatal mistake.
I want to thank MuckRaker96 for his diligent work.

Well, to be fair, I'm an editor and a writer. /humblebrag
