the correct answwer to "who shot first" will always be "Harrison Ford if he ever hears that hugging question again."

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 July 2020 - 12:25 AM)

Han shot first. Plain and simple.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

This has probably already been discussed, but do you think they'll make it so Kylo was actually in deep cover this whole time and his mission was to destroy the source of the Sith (or remains the emperor) and end the threat of the First Order?  That this whole thing was a ploy to become supreme leader and take down the organization from the inside?

That sounds terrible, it makes one ask, why did Han have to die if Ren is a deep cover spy, it makes no sense whatsoever.

I'm on board with minor cosmetic clean ups like removing matte lines and whatnot, and even a very small handful of other changes like the Cloud CIty windows.

 

But the majority of the additions are just cluttering up well-framed shots with distracting CG nonsense. They detract from what's happening on screen rather than complementing it, and that's my main gripe. I have no issue with the SEs existing, but I object to the originals not being made available in (at least) properly restored HD; but preferably 4K. Especially when it seems to be simply out of spite.

Let's see what tie in books are coming out.

 

Star Wars Allegiance: How the Resistance gets a fleet of ships.

Resistience Reborn: Probably going to explain how the Resistance goes from twelve guys on the Millennium Falcon, to the larger force they are in the next film. It'll also introduce minor characters who show up as Resistance commanders, but aren't really important.

 

Now I'm not going to read any of these, because I want to judge Rise of Skywalker's political world-building on it's own merits (and be disappointed by it like I was with The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi).

Well, that'd be a matter of proving loyalties. I think it's irrelevant though on the basis that Star Wars is fundamentally not that kind of story and I really see no chance of someone deciding to take it that way. This isn't a Cold War suspense drama.

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Wouldn't the undercover Kylo Ren, send proof of the system-destroying super-weapon (along with other First Order atrocities), so that the New Republic would act against the First Order? 

 

Or have I given this more thought then it deserves?

While I will probably never prefer the prequel trilogy to the sequel trilogy, there are some very good points made in this article. https://www.cnet.com...n-the-prequels/

I don't think Priest is wrong on the whole about most of the strengths and weaknesses of either set of films, and while it's certainly not the best time to evaluate the new trilogy as a whole, the prequels would surely if anything fare better without their final chapter. But this is all what we already know about how franchise movies are done differently in the world of Avengers: Endgame than that of Raimi's Spiderman. And I don't honestly think it adds up to much about which is "better" at all.

The more I think about it the more I think 30 Star Destroyers practically has to be someone's dream.  Or if not a dream, a flashback.  Perhaps to the Battle of Jakku.

 

I find it very hard to believe that 30 Star Destroyers that have been hiding for 40 years are going to show up and it is going to make sense to me in a satisfying way.

Unless most of those ships are knock-offs and they're about to introduce the Chiss Ascendancy and their shipyards in the Unknown Regions.

That only begs the question of why would they go with the desgin used by the empire, they surely would of come up with something of their own, unless its Thrawn

Well saying that, I think according to The Last Jedi novel, the First Order got some of it's fleet and weapons, from supplies that Palpatine stockpiled throughout the galaxy.

 

Of course, it's a bit late to worry about the resources the First Order have available, because they seemingly have access to an infinite supply of money and resources.

Much as I dislike the Last Jedi as a film, it does imply that the people on the casnio planet are pretty much surpporting both sides in terms of money and likely making bets on things related to it, but then its hard to know exactly what going on as the film narrative was rather broken and left me confused, disgruntled and with a headache of sorts, in other words, it was a poor movie in terms of story. Anyway, its kind of like the old saying: when the cat away the mice will play, so all of the rich folk are the mice and the cat is the one who brings order from the chaos and the rich people are thriving because of the confilct in the Galaxy and simply don't care who suffers as a result.

I don't buy a "deep cover" explanation, but I can believe that Kylo Ren thinks that he's trying to destroy the evil of the Sith, and even the First Order. The problem is, he's resorted to evil means to do so, making himself at least as bad as that which he (theoretically) seeks to destroy.

News that broken over night is that the Game of Thrones show runners are no longer making the up coming trilogy after the "Post Skywalker saga!" So that is a blow to whatever plans they had for the future for Star Wars movies.
