    What did you like about Rogue One? There's no wrong answer, I'm just curious what you liked about it.

    I think it's Luke's hand

    I think Kylo Ren
    offing Han Solo and possibly Princess Leia, too,
    would be enough to
    turn Luke to the Dark Side.
    I hope I'm wrong, though, because that would mean
    it's all Luke's fault.

    Maybe Luke has a bad dream about R2-D2 dying so he kills a bunch of younglings.

    Nah, that's been done.

    And here's director Rian Johnson with some behind-the-scene clips (no spoilers here):

    I watched some "spoiler" YT videos to help prep for this thing which I have to say were helpful. I don't know much about the SW universe beyond the movies, and these characters have apparently been a bit more fleshed out in the books. Having additional insight into who Snoke is, etc. give some insight into how this movie might go, and why Luke is presented as someone who may be a villain. I won't go into the details here, but if you're interested I'd say watch them. I don't think they give away too much, and could be totally off base, but a nice way to get hyped to see this.

    Rian Johnson describing playing with the Millennium Falcon toy gave me flashbacks because he and I are roughly the same age. This trilogy is basically Star Wars through a Gen X prism. :thumbsup:

    A lot of those videos are fun to watch but likely nothing more than idle speculation. There are several YT'ers that specialize in clickbait videos. So, one should probably take a lot of it with a grain of salt.

    With THE FORCE AWAKENS there was a specific spoiler, posted on several sites (MakingStarWars) about Han Solo as it pertains to what happens when he and Kylo Ren meet up on that scaffolding that turned out to be 100% correct and it kind of ruined that moment for me; when it began to unfold, I knew the surprise. I wish I hadn't read it. I'm trying hard to go into THE LAST JEDI fairly ignorant. :laugh:

    No doubt. Matter of fact, they're best watched while taking an Epsom salt bath.

    I didn't have the option of even trying to avoid that spoiler - some a-hole posted screenshots of it on a completely unrelated thread on Facebook a week or so before the movie came out.

    I feel like I'm going to need to avoid social media altogether in the weeks leading up to the release date of this one.

    Here's a reason not to be. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Disney is making theater owners give them 65% of the box office and hold their largest theater for Last Jedi for at least a month. Oh, and if a theater drops even a screening, that's considered a breach of the deal and the theater has to cough up another 5% of the take.

    [It should be noted Disney tried to take this route with Iron Man 3 and the three major multiplex chains (AMC, Regal and Cinemark) canned advance ticket sales until Disney capitulated.]

    The Falcon flying around in a fire fight and shooting directly up through the planet surface reminded me somewhat of the Asteroid scene!........let's hope there aren't many comparisons people will be able to make between this and V.

    I hope that there's not much of Finn in TLJ. I found him to be one of the most irritating and unimaginative characters of the entire franchise so far; an unfunny "comic relief" character, which comes under the Jar Jar umbrella (though Finn isn't as blatant, he's still fairly pointless).

    Luke looks like he suffers from Alzheimer's in every scene they have shown so far.

    I felt that it achieved exactly what it set out to do: tell the story of how the events in A New Hope came to be. It moved along swiftly and wrapped everything up nicely.

    Sure, the plot format was a basic hero story with some war-movie tropes thrown in, but the cast is engaging, the visuals are spectacular, it feels more "adult" than the other films, and the final sequence with Vader is easily one of the most powerful sequences in the entire franchise.

    Wouldn't surprise me if the character is basically re-written as there's a built-in excuse for doing so as decades have passed since ROTJ.

    That has absolutely nothing to do with the post you quoted.

    How does someone "look" like they are suffering from Alzheimer's? A look of fear? Either way, your comment isn't funny to those of us with family who suffer from that disease.

    And a lot has happened. His own nephew turned on him. Who would we want Luke to be? The same naive kid he was in the original trilogy?

    I admit, the scene of Luke entering the Falcon got me a bit excited. Probably the most exciting/intriguing scene I've seen in any of the trailers thus far.

    This is going to be the best Star Wars film since the awesome Rogue One.

    Should I skip Rogue One? I have enjoyed almost every moment of them but the last part of The Force Awakens. The first hour really clicked but after that I was a bit disappointed. Should I give the last hour of TFA another chance and dive into Rogue 1 or just hope for the best with this new one?
