@TM2-Megatron Yeah, it is like @TheMightyMollusk says. The catch is that usually means they can contain beef, and I confirmed it by pushing my luck. XD So... yeah, if going to the theater was about watching the film, it might be worth potentially resting on the balls of my feet while technically sitting in the chair, but put it all together... and I just wait to watch it at home. Oh, and ticket prices, always ticket prices.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2018 - 10:24 AM)

woot woot! Korean barbeque for dinner!

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 May 2018 - 05:51 AM)

It's meat scraps. Whatever's left over from cutting up the more choice cuts.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 May 2018 - 11:26 PM)

Well, the hot dogs Cineplex has (pretty much our only big theatre chain) around here are quite good, but I have no idea of the composition, and honestly, it's probably better that way.

@  Otaku : (18 May 2018 - 10:01 PM)

@TM2-Megatron In my case, shouldn't risk the hot dogs, either. Maybe if they are guaranteed to contain NO beef (can't digest it anymore >_<).

A classmate of mine once did one: Asked for the English term for [underpants], he replied "underground trousers".

@Nevermore First time I have ever heard of this, but it sounds awesome!

@  Arazyr : (18 May 2018 - 08:39 AM)

We did that amongst ourselves in German class in college. We just called it "Germish", though.

@  Shrug : (18 May 2018 - 07:01 AM)

Nevermore, you've peaked my interest and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:04 AM)

The term itself is an example: "English for Runaways" is supposed to mean "English for advanced speakers".

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:03 AM)

Think of it as the German variety of Engrish, only done completely on purpose for maximum hilarity. The target audience are bilingual German native speakers who a) understand the intended meaning and b) realize the absurdness of the end result.

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:02 AM)

It's basically the official unofficial term for deliberate mistranslations between German and English, done for the lulz.

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:01 AM)

Has anyone ever heard of the term "English for Runaways"?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 May 2018 - 01:13 AM)

Okay... Seriously.. The Mystic Knights need a DVD release already.. I keep seeing them pop up in the most random of places.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 May 2018 - 01:03 AM)

Unfortunately no Squidkids at Sea World so no splat zones. Now that would have been a good brand deal to advertise in the park, and would have made more brand sense than friggin' Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog.

@  Paladin : (17 May 2018 - 07:52 PM)

i think that's where the orcas jump & land on the trainers in protest to their horrible treatment

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 May 2018 - 06:53 PM)

Splat zones? ;)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 May 2018 - 05:05 PM)

It was wet from gallons of salt water. Splash zones, man.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2018 - 04:46 PM)

@  Paladin : (17 May 2018 - 04:42 PM)

do you serve orca meat with butter?

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 May 2018 - 03:57 PM)

I hope it was wet from butter

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 May 2018 - 01:06 AM)

I used to work at Sea World in Florida, in the stroller rental warehouse, where we would regularly have to hose wet popcorn out of strollers. Popcorn hasn't really appealed to me since.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 May 2018 - 07:36 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 May 2018 - 07:35 PM)

Always bemusing to find a new laptop series at Walmart and then can't find ANYTHING online about it except for the press releases

@  Paladin : (16 May 2018 - 06:52 PM)

still sounds preferable to "The Hobbit."

@  wonko the sane? : (16 May 2018 - 06:15 PM)

I once farted so rank the guy behind me walked out of the lord of rings movie. Told my brother someone needed to sew my ass shut on his way out.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 May 2018 - 06:15 PM)

If I couldn't eat popcorn, I have to admit that would remove part of the appeal for my going, as well. Although the theatre chain up here still has decent hot dogs, I guess

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 May 2018 - 06:12 PM)

Yeah.. Stomach issues is one of the big medical reasons for me as well.

@  Otaku : (16 May 2018 - 05:55 PM)

I rarely go to movie theaters anymore: besides being too fat to sit comfortably in the seats, I have digestive health issues. No popcorn at all. >_<

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 May 2018 - 05:26 PM)

Medical reasons.

@  Telly : (16 May 2018 - 12:49 PM)

why?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 May 2018 - 04:37 PM)

I can't even go the theater anymore really.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2018 - 03:29 PM)

Personally, I like the short wait. As much as I still enjoy going to the theatre, I also like getting movies at home as soon as possible

@  Bass X0 : (15 May 2018 - 03:12 PM)

Just found out John Mahoney (Martin Crane in Frasier) died earlier this year. That's sad.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 May 2018 - 02:59 PM)

I don't think I'm ever going to get used to the turn around time on new movies making it to home formats.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2018 - 02:37 PM)

Only for Steelbooks and whatnot, anyway

@  Telly : (15 May 2018 - 02:23 PM)

picked up black panther on bluray. walmart had little signs next to the price sticker saying theyre actually limiting copies of it to 2 per customer. ive never seen that on a movie before

@  Paladin : (14 May 2018 - 07:33 AM)

more and more i'm starting to wish i'd become an alcoholic years ago.

@  Otaku : (14 May 2018 - 06:31 AM)

The sad thing is that I sometimes think a little social drinking by others puts us on even footing. I'm sure you're all shocked (which emoticon do i use for sarcasm again?) that I'm not good at social situations, and either I clam up or say too much, can't read the room, etc.? XP

@  Nevermore : (14 May 2018 - 12:21 AM)

I don't drink for a variety of reasons. Family alcoholism, can't stand the smell, don't like what it does to people, etc.

@  Waspinator : (13 May 2018 - 11:15 PM)

It's not always other people caring about you not drinking that makes it awkward. You can make yourself feel awkward by not doing something everyone else is doing without anyone even trying to make you do it. Peer pressure doesn't have to be intentional, the desire to fit in can make you do it to yourself.

@  Plokatron : (13 May 2018 - 10:57 PM)

@Pennpenn Same here. I just don't see a need to drink hard stuff even if it's as simple as one sip. Two reasons one I'd probably be as much a lightweight as Doc. Brown and two my uncle was killed in a car wreck due to a drunk driver and I've made a promise to my mother to never drink unless it's very special. I'm even less tolerant of Smoking or chewing Tabaco since my dad had cancer twice due to chewing learned his lesson after he survived round two. And before I get the naysayers on this the doctors specified to him that it was chewing that screwed him up. His genes did have a possible trigger in them that coulc of gone off but according to the docs it only mutated after he started chewing.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 May 2018 - 08:06 PM)

I have enough problems with Diabetes messing with me.. Don't need alcohol adding to it. ;)

Second thought: What about Finn?

Third thought: What if they start a new force tradition for the good guys?

Fourth thought: "Jedi" is also plural. Luke, Rey, Finn, and Kylo may, as a group, be "The Last Jedi".

Or it could just be that Luke is the last official Jedi.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

So this is Episode 8, which comes out this December, right? The movie timeline is already starting to get fuzzy for me, with everyone talking about Rogue One because it made a billion dollars, about Han Solo because casting is underway, about Episode 9 because they have to figure out Leia, about the next anthology movie.... it's hard to keep up.  

 

From the title, I thought maybe this was the rumored movie with Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan between Episode III and IV...

Good title.  I imagine this is a reference to Luke.  Since this movie will likely be mostly about him (and others interactions or actions because of him.

 

I do wonder if his teachings will lead to a different order, neither Jedi or Sith.

I like it.  I'm not sure I like where my imagination is going with it, but I like it.
 
Was it confirmed that Finn had no connection to the Force? I always assume it'd be like Leia or Luke - not there until specifically trained. 
 
So I think we can assume that "The Last Jedi" is probably Luke, as he's the only one around at this point who specifically claimed the Jedi title.  I wonder what that means for Rey - will she be something else? Likewise for Ren, who I'm still pretty sure will be redeemed (it's Star Wars: Redemption & Family are what it does).

EDIT: Spoiler space? What spoiler space. *Jedi handwave* There was no spoiler space here. You never saw spoiler space. Nope. Not at all. You may go about your business. Move along.

We're two weeks out from the Super Bowl. I'm betting we get a teaser trailer there and then I'll see a full trailer in person this April at Celebration.

 

Also, like others have said, you must remember that Jedi is a plurale tantum, meaning that it is a plural noun as well as a singular. "One Jedi, many Jedi." So it could be referencing the students at the school, it could refer to Luke, to Rey, to Luke and Rey, or even to the Jedi in a Holocron that Luke is learning from. It could literally be anyone at anytime who was a Jedi.

There's a part of me that wonderes whether the name needed to be changed after Fisher's death - but the fact that Jedi can be plural would discount that anyway.

It's been said that the name of the movie was known way back during the first draft of the movie's script.

Only a Sith deals in absolutes.

 

It could be as Marduk speculated (again why the spoilers for something unconfirmed) and Rey follows her own path forward. We have ideas that other force traditions are in the galaxy. Zeb's people believing in the Ashla and the Bogan, Bendu himself, The Nightsisters, there's nothing stating that Rey has to follow the Jedi path. As far as official canon goes the Jedi are still the stand offish warrior trained monks and nothing in the current canon to my knowledge had Luke skew away from that philosophy. As far as we know Luke had no relationships like his Legends canon version did. If Anything Luke is the last Jedi so that Rey can restore the light without being held by the boundaries of the dogmatic ways of the Jedi and may indeed take his experience as the last Jedi to push her away from what he did.

I will be kind of disappointed if Finn doesn't have latent force talent too. I liked the idea that his 'Force Awakening' is what broke the First Orders mental conditioning.

Good title. Not grest, but mysterious and intriguing. Please be good! :)

While anything is possible, I think Finn was always a red herring when it comes to Force sensitivity. I think it's just as powerful that he's a good guy by nature, who cast off the FO's training when he realized it was wrong. Not everyone in Star Wars that does something hard needs to have been helped by hidden Force abilities.

I think the title refers to Luke as the last Jedi Knight/Master, Rey will be his Padwan learner. As for Flin, I think he'll awaken from his coma in this film and evenly join Chew & Rey as the owners of the Falcon but time will tell. I expect Luke has been in deep mediation in regards to the disaster that bought about the destruction of his order and this film will likely see Rey learning the ways of a jedi and maybe play out a bit like Empire Strikes Back, where the First Order with Ren and Stoke come seeking revenge for the destruction of Star Killer Base, you can bet the Rebels would of changed bases after their celeberation of the destruction of Star Killer base because the First order are likely to come seeking revenge, that's pretty much I thoughts at the moment, I will see this film in cinemas on my Birthday, next January, just as I saw Rouge One on my birthday just gone.
