    Doctor Who

    Liked the music. That was it. The acting/dialog felt like a bad adaptation of a CBBC SJ adventures ep, only just repurposed for TV. Walsh had no emotional weight. Whittaker was ok but approx a tenth of Missy’s coolness. The 'embrace change' monologues were embarrassingly clumsy. just about as bad as I thought might be bearing in mind the show runner. Will give it a couple more eps, but won't be sad to give up on it if it's a series of this.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    I popped into Cex with son boy on Saturday and they had LOADS of copies of both. And no, TLJ is by no means the best Star Wars film. It does confound expectation, that said as I was expecting to be entertained I was kind of hoping that it might at least clear that hurdle.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    I'd have had Rey and Yoda slap some sense into Luke early, cut the animal racing from the casino (some of it worked as a sequence and there was almost the good nugget of of idea that the resistance could function off site as a code war), had Holdo as a not terrible leader but still butting heads with Poe (P wants to fight, H wants to hide), not dealt with the Rey parentage at all (stupid contrivance anyhow), cut Maz (this gens Jar Jar), had more Hux(who I like a lot as a character) and Kylo (growing on me but needs to have more incel/troll rage). Added a bit more to Snoke, not had that twist. That said I'm not putting a penny into the remake madness. That way lies complete idiocy and stems from inherent racism rather than film criticism. TLJ was OK in parts but not great (or even good) . Less an issue with plot holes and more a problem with bone headed characters and motivations.

    Great scenes in disappointing movies

    Personally I loved Dark Knight. Begins was OK, I vaguely remember it as a nicely shot generic action movie more than anything else. Rises was full of absolutely ridiculous leaps of logic from the moment the entire cities Keystone cops were locked in a closet for a year and a half. Bane was awesome though. Liked him loads.

    Plus half a dozen shots in the Dark Knight Rises. But narratively the film dropped off a cliff half way through.

    No ones gone for weaponising hyperspace? Visually beautiful but TLJ was easily the most disappointed I've ever been in a films story. Ironically the last time I was that angry by a film was Watchmen. I seem to remember that the credits were outsourced which (imo) is why they were the best bit in the film. Looked brilliant but the end was so far away from the source I was furious walking out of the cinema. Cars 2 has amazing sequences (Japan especially) but oh my goodness it's Pixar's worst.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    I wouldn't neg you for it, nor did the iron bit offend me - but I similarly can't remotely comprehend how you like Last Jedi. (Makes me want to see Solo more now... :)) not the correct thread for it but definitely beaten by all SW films bar Clones and Sith (which are also complete train wrecks). Haven't seen Solo though. Want to, but have had a mad few months with no cinema time happening. Looking forward to being able to go through the spoilers in the thread. Still convinced that Visually, again only from the trailers, solo does seem to have nailed the feeling of the universe. Just need them to release the damn blu Ray dagnabbit. This and Justice League I'd love to see a mega monty making of. (much more, way much more, than I'd ever like to see Last Jedi again.... ;))

    Kylo: oh my gods you killed Phasma. Hux: you rebel scum. I could see that.

    Star Wars Episode IX (December 2019)

    EPIX is an awesome name. If Rian was directing it the internet would explode (and dieing in a q waiting for it would probably be a mercy lolol). Bringing Lando back makes all sorts of sense. Wonder if they'd been thinking it before of after his turn in Solo?

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    This. Nunb, Bib Fortuna, Fett, Dengar, 4Lom and so on were amazing characters. Served the plot. Nothing more. Rose and Holdo (and Phasma to an extent) looked cool but had so little story and motivation to back up their frequently stupid actions that they generally spoiled the film for me. Even Max was better than them and she was a completely rubbish character.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    Yes to this... But tbh Force Awoke had only just the right side of suspended disbelief. (I didn't like Rey but thought the film just hung together enough). Last Jedi I didn't feel like I got anyone's rationale, Rey mostly.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    Still. The film sells that he realises he would fail first time if he hadn't trusted. On the Rey thing I was completely unsold that she would be able to pilot the Falcon first time. I know she shouted that she was a pilot but why was she? A kid stranded on a planet who scrounges for scraps also gets free pilot training every weds between 3.30 and 4?

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    To be fair though Luke also has his training path throughout the three films. Empire especially is about the hard slog of him learning how to harness his powers and he makes plenty of missteps along the way. Rey, by comparison, does pick it all up ridiculously easy and with little to no narrative sense. Apart from the similarities to ANH that was my main issue with TFA and Last Jedi to an extent. Just don't find Rey that likeable really.
