  1. What I find a bit crazy about SW is after 8 films we still have no idea what the Dark Side actually is, or whats addictive/quick/easy about it. Back during the pre-Prequels days I imagined thats what the arc of the first trilogy was going to have been about. Anakin basically discovering "force-crack" and struggling with its addictive properties - physically and mentally - battling the demons and trying not to let his habit destroy his life. Other than some dodgy contact lens - we didn't really get any of that - and its basically unexplored terrority. Or have I missed something?

    James Gunn fired for old paedo jokes

    If that’s true, that is way more offensive than anything Gunn wrote years ago.

    HBO's Westworld. Yee-Haww Co/w,bo.Y@@@ [FATAL ERROR]

    hmmmmm. loved season one - as it felt like it had places to go - and wanted to lead you through some big ideas. Season 2 however felt like five good episodes stretched out to ten. Some great character moments - but very meandering and directless in general. And the actress playing Deloris, really cant pull of the role she has been given imo. My suspension of disbelief evaporates every time she is on screen. She is just someone saying words that sound important. As others have said, cant say I really care where the series goes next. Which is sad because I'd been looking forward to series 2 for the last 18 months.

    Star Wars Episode IX (December 2019)

    Unlike, say, putting an 80 something supporting actor in - because you didn’t plan out the story - and killed off all the main surviving cast members.....

    The only think the TLJ made me FEEL was bored. Don't let Kevinmental wind you up @Smitty. He has a very one dimensional, and super simplistic opinion on this. Anyone that actually believes the whole "people who don't like TLJ are racist, sexist losers" is pretty much beyond arguing with.

    Johnson just makes the whole thing so joyless though. And he knows it - hence the crowbarred in, comically tone deaf humour (that is actually very different to TFA's).

    The Russian goalie didn’t even seem to make much effort to save that second goal..

    Yeah, maybe you are right. Just doesn't work for me at all.

    Its narratively really weird Holdo exists at all. Shouldn't this have been Leia's role in the story? Leia stands up to Poe, because of all the death and destruction he causes at the beginning - and would have given her something to do (other than being in a coma). Reading between the lines, perhaps Carrie wasn't up to it - and this was the script fix.

    That article is written by a family friend of Ryan Johnson. And takes along time to argue some well worn points that have been discussed a million times. Hardly the last word. You think the film's good. I think its crap. Doesn't make any of us racist, sexist or stupid.

    I agree. That piece is a whole lot of nothing.

    Hmmmm yeah maybe... don’t really buy that in this case. It’s more like JJ wanted a big twist ending where we meet Luke - and that meant screwing up narrative logic, and the next film had to begin immediately afterward. Meaning Rey goes from junk scavenger to bad ass Jedi master in about a week - because there was no time off screen, for her to grow. its almost as if no one planned any of the story beats of the new trilogy atall.

    It subverted my expectations for sure. I expected it was going to be good.

    In Hollywood - you are only as good as your last film, and the industry has always run this way. So yeah I imagine that Kennedy turning a large chunk of the traditional SW fan base against the franchise is going to be problematic for her. I can also see why a lot of other people wouldn't want the job - as you are kinda set up to fail. You are damned if you do, damned if you don't. Disney also run a tight, pokerfaced ship publicly - so no way would this kinda thing leak into Variety unless Disney wanted it to. And I can see execs/assistants anonymously leaking stuff if they have begun too lose faith in those above them - just to vent a bit of frustration. But who knows. I cant imagine Bob Iger is sending Kathy champagne and roses based on the last six months.
