  1. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Yeah, listening to JJs commentary, their main objective was to create scenes we have already seen, thinking fans would like to see a rehash of what has been out before. To be original was the last thing on their mind. Apparently didn't even occur to them. But it still is the best of the bunch. That would have been a great starting point to branch off into something new. Then Last Jedi ruined itself with some "Really?" moments (I could have been good, had they treated Luke differently) and then the whole thing really went downhill from there fast.
  2. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Kathy Kennedy is a total doofus, who has no clue at all. While rewatching all the movies and also watching all the bonus materials and audio commentaries and hearing these people talk I can't help to get angry at these people responsible for how these movies turned out. Yes, the movies have a great look, but overall it went from acceptable to really and ended with are you fucking kidding me?! Kylo Ren as a character is unredeemable. And they made him that way. Glad the fucker is dead.
  3. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    The whole movie is cringeworthy. Everything. Especially the Emperor scenes. Torrented it today, after rewatching every Star Wars movie in the past week, to see if it is still that bad on second viewing and yes, it's an embarrasing mess. Just a line up of cringeworthy scenes with no real story. And really, how often is that guy yelling out: "REYY"? So annoying.
  4. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    No. It's total bs. Sorry. Even if back then those movies were judged differently, due to most of us being kids then, we still see them with grown up eyes now and thus we acknowledge that these movies are not as great as we once thought when we were kids. But still, none of those were as bad in storytelling and disrespecting the lore as these new ones are. And really, we are 40 years removed. Everything has evolved. Star Wars now is a multi-billion dollar business, instead of a quasi independent filmaker, who wasn't sure how many movies he couldm actually make. Now they can get the best people in the world and do whatever und hey want, without any financial limitation. Why can't the story telling and movie making evolve too, to be of higher quality in certain aspects than the OT? Instead they delivered poorly thought out, bad sorytelling, SW lore disrespecting shit. There are tons of stories in the (discarded) SW universe. Some great, some bad, some horrible, but most of them better than what they came up with. They could have picked out the absoutely best material and delivered amazing movies, but sadly they didn't qnd majorily dropped the ball with the disjointed mess they put out.

  7. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Clearly these people have no taste.
  8. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Many people seeing it, doesn't really mean that many people are really enjoing it. Even if people tell me it's the worst shit ever, I still would go to see for myself (hadn't I already seen it).
  9. The Best Albums of the Decade

    Same for me. And of the new albums I heard, it's from old artists. And since I could count them on 2 hands it's not really fair to list them, but Alice Cooper - Welcome 2 my nightmare Europe - Bag of bones Europe - War of kings Europe - Walk the earth Black Sabbath - 13 Janet Jackson - Unbreakable U2 - Songs of innocence Slash - Slash Slash - World on fire Dee Snider - For the love of metal Daft Punk - Random Access Memory
  10. James Bond Thread - No Time To Die (April 2020)

    You should try Nightfire. Heavily influenced by Moonraker and the classic Bond movies. Awesome game.
  11. Europe 2020 Tour Announced

    Yes. But for 600 $/€ you can attend as many shows as you like. Front of stage and early entry included. Not sure though how the Nu-Guns stage show could be considered better. Don't really see that.
  12. Europe 2020 Tour Announced

    Yes. And then we could buy a black ticket and wouldn't need to worry about ticket prices anymore. That's the most fan friendly thing any band has ever done.
  13. Europe 2020 Tour Announced

    Does that matter? They played stadiums 2 years running. People went to the shows accordingly. They are also not playing the same cities in Europe (excemptions apply).
  14. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Well. Clearly you don't want to loose your ship. That shit costs money. So I can buy that this is a last resort. It was either that or losing the the rebell fleet and thus the rebel alliance dying. And since it is a last resort, which usually is not done, everyone is caught be surprise (and they obviously haven't seen Star Trek: Nemesis ). Otherwise they probably could have just shot down that ship/be prepared for something like that happening. I don't really see that as a weak point. Of course, they could have used a droid to steer the ship, so Holdo wouldn't have to sacrifice herself, but where is the heroics in that?
  15. Europe 2020 Tour Announced

    What are you talking about? They did 2 stadium runs in the states. When they went for a third run (the second one in the same year and in the winter), they went into arenas. Perfectly normal. And the shows that have been reported, were sold out or at least close. Seriously, when you feel the need to argue against and deny the success of the band for which forum you are an admin, at least stick to to facts.
  16. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Again out of likes. Seriously. This limited likes business is as annoying as the new Star wars movies.
  17. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    As a new film maker, he couldn't be sure of the success of the movie and that he could make 3 movies. And really, why does it matter whether he had a plan or not? He pulled it off and it's barely noticeable, that he made it up as he went along. For the prequel trilogy he had a plan and stuck to it. Disney is a billion dollar company and knew from the get go they were making 3 movies and yet they failed to come up with a story for 3 movies and failed to plan accordingly, letting one hired director paint them in a corner to the point that it unraveld the whole thing.
  18. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    It simply is not a plot hole.
  19. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Out of likes, but that's why I kinda came to hate the ST (which got worse from movie to movie) and think it's a colossal waste of time. It did nothing to move things along, just shit on everything, set things back and gave us a rehash, just in bad.
  20. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    No. But then you kinda knew what was coming. The extensive worlds and characters. The opulency of it all, while the OT is rather reduced.
  21. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Yeah, well. Saw all of them in the cinma, was disapointed with Menace, while happy that Star Wars was back. Enjoyed Attack and Revenge so much more. Both in the cinema and on repeat viewings. But then again, I read the comics, read the books and played the computer games, so I have a different access than one who just watched the OT. Maybe you should watch the complete Revenge to have a valid opinion though.
  22. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    Yeah. Looks like it. I don't care too much about Darth Maul. And while I view Menace more favourible than I used to, it's still the one I want to watch least. Too much desert, too much Jar Jar, too much pod racing, too much of that kid, too much Liam Neeson (who I kinda consider boring), McGregor not really shining in the role yet and just wrong pacing. But the other moments are quite alright.
  23. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    They certainly add more than the ST. Sure Menace is a bore, but I quite like Attack and Revenge. Rogue one also adds nothing, it's not even a fun movie to watch, but still my favourite of the new ones. And really, you don't recast Han Solo (or Lando Carlrissian), so I could have perfectly done without Solo.
  24. STAR WARS: RISE OF SKYWALKER - SPOILERS!!!

    But people can still watch it in the way it was released. At least when they watch it for the first time that is recomended anyway. But really, for people who watch it now, it might be common knowledge either way that Vader is Luke's father. Why? Because you prefer him to be a puppet?
