  1. If I had any 'hopes' for the film story (not especially hopes though, more like thoughts that might have been interesting to pursue...), is that by the end of the thing, Rey would have properly turned out to be the bad one and Ren would have redeemed himself and been the dude to sort everything out. That feels to me to be a pretty good basis for a trilogy of films, whilst having nice echoes of all the other films in there for good measure. But quite honestly, I can't see that happening now at all. Which is a shame, because literally all they had to do was to fire me off an email, and I'd have let them have that idea for free and everyone would have been much happier.

    Has anyone mentioned Wolf Alice yet? I bloody love her/them/whatever. So much fucking energy - which you would never have guessed from the interviews she's done
  3. This is the thing really. I like my villains to be properly evil. Sure, Vadar turns all good guy in the end, but we all know the Emperor was the boss man and he was Spinal Tap 11 evil. We don't have anything like this in the new films, and for me it's meant this set of films is basically buggered for me. I still maintain that if we'd had a KOTOR film, we'd all be well happy and nothing would be wrong in the world. Literally, KOTOR has everything I needed in a Star Wars film. It also has a psychotic assassin droid, which I feel helps no end. Oh, and a Darth with a proper disfigurement. Robo-jaw for the win baby.

    I’m still not going anywhere near it. Looking down at the FAQs they’ve put in that the figures will be plastic. They’ve really kind of hidden it away though, which I think is a bit naughty. I want more info just how they got the rights.
  5. I find there’s a real lack of cohesion in the new films that the more I think about the more I find myself getting depressed. Literally, since Phantom Menace came out I’ve simply gone along to watch the things, had my money’s worth out of the one viewing and thought very little about them. Sure, the prequel trilogy are whole bunches of rubbish most of the time, but I can’t deny they are clearly a trilogy of sequential rubbish. Force Awakens and Last Jedi are just messy films and it just feels like no one could be arsed to make anything apart from ‘moments’. They honestly feel like episodes from an unaired TV series more than the epic movies I’d have quite liked. Well, I think that’s what I would have liked, as I don’t really know anymore. All I know is I certainly don’t mind them, but they’re so forgettable. I mean, completely forgettable. Yoda fighting Saruman...possibly the worst thing I’ve ever seen, but I’ll never forget it!

    It is Sega though, so all bets are off

    What are the odds in getting some sort of releases of 3, 4 and 5 on the PS4 then? Don't care about them being anything more than HD'd up, but it would be bloody great.

    Naaah! Looks great. Although, I'm too much of a fan of the show to have any objectivity whatsoever . I loved Dreamland, so having a new series in a completely different setting from what we had all become accustomed to works nicely for me.
  9. The Miniatures Appreciation Thread

    You've made it work mate . Looks great. Only thing I'd possibly do is add one more spot colour into the mix somewhere on the thing as a contrast. However, that's just me

    You get extra special points because it's one of my babies He's looking rather magnificent! You'll be getting a whole heap more in the very near future Edit: What's your plan for the water?
  11. I liked a whole lot of it - the design, effects and the robot was especially good. However, without exception I found all the main characters really awful. So much so that it's basically put me on a huge downer to see any further episodes as I thought they were all irritating as hell. Found the way they decided to do all the flashback stuff and the 'how' they got to be in this position absolutely the wrong way to do it too, but that's just my tastes I guess.
  12. I'd like to think he's simply just gone fucking bananas in his old age, but I did have to do a double take when I saw Sting had teamed up with Shaggy. Just when you think that barrel had been well and truly scraped, you find a whole new layer of 'wtf' to get your head around.
  13. Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice

    Yeah, promise me you won't go into it expecting this

    Looking good Mikes. Remember the final few dots of white on there to make the thing pop! Infact, dots of white all over the place .
  15. I’m not sure I quite get what it’s trying to be...80s spoof or genuine movie. It doesn’t feel over the top enough to be a spoof. It looks ghastly. I mean, based on that trailer I’m amazed anyone thought it would be a good idea to put money into it? Also: James Franco looks as threatening as my fucking sausage dog.
