  1. Let's have a films thread.

    I've just remembered Luke milking some alien tits and slurping it down.... The amount of shit done for cheap laughs for kids is criminal.

    You'll probably think it's average then! Ha.

    I meant of the Star Wars set. It's dividing opinion wildly. I think if you loved TFA you might like this, if Rogue One was more your thing, then you might not like this. Seems a a common theme amongst opinions I've been reading.
  4. Let's have a films thread.

    Audience score already dropped to 58%, not far off the worst fan rated film yet. So bloody frustrating as there is a basis for something excellent there.

    You've probably been reading things by people who either haven't seen it or by people (youtube reviewers) who are influenced by their free tickets to Disney premiers! The comments sections are full of scathing reviews and so is the Rotton Tomatoes fan comments section. Its audience score on Rotton Tomatoes is 62%... compared to TFA 89%, Rogue One 87% and Revenge of the Sith 65%. Rated worse than Sith by fans... and that score is actually falling like a stone today. Be amazed if that's not in the 50's come the end of the weekend. Rogue one, for me has been the only one that has come close to feeling like an old Star Wars film.

    Glad you liked it, for me it was just a cheap stunt, didn't feel real and had no weight. These are fantasy films and you need an open mind, but all good films still have their own boundaries. I feel like this film left that behind, there were no physical boundaries in that cheap cgi stunt. Same goes for the force, you accepted it was a powerful thing, but it didn't feel like the power was limitless.... now though. Almost anything and everything at any point can now be explained away. This was like the chewie scene with the dial turned up to 11, for not reason other than the need to go bigger and better and frankly more stupid in my opinion.

    Been reading the fan reviews in a lot of different places... wow, some savage stuff. It doesn't seem to have gone down well at all so far.

    That film sounded horrific from the start, not rushing to the cinema to watch that one.
  9. Let's have a films thread.

    I'm all for it, but they've gone so far the other way it just feels completely jarring. In this film every single man is portrayed as a hot headed bloke who doesn't think and just wants to blow stuff up and all the women save the day and think things through and are level headed.
  10. Let's have a films thread.

    It is, just feels like a total waste of what TFA and the originals actually gave Johnson to work with. He wasted the two best characters in the whole film as well.

    To me, all those things felt natural in the original. Almost like they weren't intentionally trying to be funny with jokes, just light hearted moments, whether it's tools falling on Chewies head, or a bit of name calling. They were few and far between as well. So many needless attempts to make something "funny" where it wasn't needed. There's a space battle, BB8 needs to fix something... can't we just have him fix it or struggling to fix it. Without putting in a lame, ridiculously over used "plugging a leak with your finger" routine. One after another, there was just another lame forced attempt at humour that didn't need to be there. Speaking of BB8.... AT-ST... what the flying **** was that scene all about. I just keep remembering piles of shitness... Maz Kanata, playing what seems like Call of Duty and making nob gabs with a light sabre / gun.
  12. Let's have a films thread.

    It was totally pointless, it was all for nothing... but at least they got a PETA save the animals message out there and another asian chick in the film . Oh and characters falling in love within the space of what, 10 hours... do me a favour. Star wars wasn't a comedy, they have straight out attempted to get humour in pretty much every single scene. That was never star wars, any light hearted moments were so natural and subtle. This crowbars in nonsense absolutely every where, that mostly wasn't even remotely funny. A two minute opening scene about "General Hugs", give me strength. I liked Snoke, a lot. I thought he was very well done and actually quite menacing. Wow could they have made more of him though throughout the 3 films, a complete waste. Sadly I'm done with all Star Wars films now if this is the direction they are going.
  13. PALACE (H)..up next.. Thoughts?

    Maybe they have switched him, I don't make a habit of watching them. Just remember every game against us him and Fuchs had a right battle.

    Two hours later, still fuming!

    This one is worse than any prequel IMO, it's stunning in places and had a lot of potential but was totally ruined. I reckon I could cut about one hour of shite from the film and make something pretty decent.
