@  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.

@  ▲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)

@  ▲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)

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)

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

Is it reasonable to assume that the final title and teaser trailer will be released at Celebration 2019 a week from now?

 

They basically said as much this week at CinemaCon in Las Vegas.


Yep.

"AotC is the best Star Wars because it didn't portray the Clone Wars the way you expected it!"

 

The problem with the prequels has always been it's a story we know the ending to, and being blunt George Lucas failed to make the audience care about the fall of Anakin Skywalker. I've said it before, the biggest misstep was having us meet Anakin when he was a child. Anakin should have been the Han Solo-style rogue who was already an established pilot when he crossed paths with Obi-Wan and who already had some blood on his hands.  Taking us through Anakin's entire journey to adulthood was unnecessary and frankly gaffed the plot.

 

Though credit where it's due, Lucas tried to beat Martin to the punch in squicky relationships.

 

 

I've always maintained TLJ is going to age better than the other films in this newest trilogy simply because it dared to do what the franchise hasn't done in over thirty years and that's put the story in a place no one is equipped to say with certainty how it ends. Rian Johnson got the full force of the Star Wars fandom's ire for messing with formula after Abrams got the full force of the fandom's ire for adhering too close to formula.

 

That being said, TLJ was far from a flawless film and I can't disagree with Mark Hamill's frustration with how the character of Luke ultimately panned out. It makes sense from a narrative perspective in the context of the story the movie was telling, but from how we've come to understand this character in forty years of media it really was akin to hearing Peter Cullen bellow out "GIVE ME YOUR FACE!" while tearing a Decepticon in half. Luke went out spectacularly well in a blazing triumph of the adherence to the Jedi Code vs Ben's raging hate for the past and tradition, but getting to that point was painful to watch I won't deny. I don't want to ascribe directorial intent to something that might have just worked out in post, but I'd like to think making us (and the actor) uncomfortable with where Luke ended up was intention, to make us cheer all the louder when he did return to form at the end.

 

The Casino planet...I get it. Finn needed something to do. That sequence wasn't it. Just didn't work and I will fully admit to just skipping those scenes entirely when rewatching the film. About as interesting as the Senate deliberation scenes in the Prequels.

 

Ben and Rey remain the best part of the new trilogy. Where Lucas fell flat with Anakin and Padme, these movies are killing it with these two characters. Ben and Rey's team up fight isn't not going to make me bounce in my seat like a excited three year old for a long time to come. Beautifully choreographed DANCE ROUTINE turned fight, with no ridiculous over the top maneuvers.  The New Trilogy has the best Lightsaber battles of the entire franchise.

 

So...yeah. Episode VIII has problems, problems people deserve to voice and be legitimately bothered by (Though I continue to laugh at those who feel somehow threatened by Rey as a character). But two movies in and as pieces of entertainment, they're still head and shoulders above Lucas' prequel trilogy in terms of characters and overall story. Story pacing, however...I'll give to AotC. Every scene in AotC advances the plot, where as TLJ the war profiteering subplot just felt like Johnson was deliberately throwing out a parachute to slow the story down.

Not my feelings, but I feel this is related.

Also I agree with Rust that the Rey and Kylo versus the Praetorian Guards is one of the best (if not the best) lightsaber battles in all the films.

I disagree about that one.  It was competently filmed, but there was zero tension in that scene.  I simply didn't care what happened.  I guess the problem wasn't with the duel itself, but with the setup.

I must admit i was falling asleep and fast-forwarding by that point, so that fight was basically just "oh a thing's happening". ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

There's rumor that IX will have a zero-g fight on top of Kylo's spaceship, which sounds pretty neat. Always wanted to see something like that since hearing Vader's suit was made to explain him hoping between ships.

Considering my feelings for the other sequel films, I predict that this film will have some elements I really like, and some thing I don't like. 

 

This film will have some confusing/vague world-building that will make me unsure whats happening in the film, and what these events mean in-universe. I say that because it happened in the other two (for TFA it was "who are all the factions, how do they relate to each other", for TLJ it was "Did the First Order conquer to galaxy in a day? What does the destruction of the galaxy's main governmental power mean for the rest of the galaxy? What about the members and world of the New Republic who weren't blown up by the Death Star knockoff?") My guess is for this film, it'll be questions about the First Order what they control, how they operate, and how they end up getting beaten.

 

Personally I find myself disappointed that the status quo of the Sequels is "the Heroic Rebels versus the Evil Empire" again. I guess they could have had another type of war, but they didn't. I get the feeling of been there, done that. There was an opportunity to do something new but they decided to play it safe.


I sure wish I hadn't misspelt my username.....

Eagerly awaiting Episode IX name, poster and maybe trailer from the SW Celebration panel at 12 today.

Loved Force Awakens, Thought Last Jedi was even better, easily one of the best SW anythings ever. Can't wait for a look at what's next.

-ZacWilliam, wish it was now, as I sit in a Drs office and wait to probably get a shot in my eye again. :p Could use the distraction...

The title and the poster is surposely been leaked online:

 

Possible spoiler in the video:

 

I cannot see ep9 being very good, simply because its coming off the back of a badly written movie that simply went nowhere, whatever plans that were in place, went out the window with Rian Johnson & KK, just as GL original outline for a sequel went out the window and the movie has to answer all of JJ mystery boxes and surpposely wrap up the Skywalker saga but I just cannot see it being good because whatever plans or outlines in place, were simply discarded. Heath Ledger's Joker was right all along:

It might be exciting but this is pretty much the most important trailer in the history of movies because its make or break for Star Wars!

I like Rose's look in the film. A little more generic, but nice.

I do wish there was a little more to Rey's outfit than a more simple and lighter version of her original, but still.

Finn has Han Solo pants.

I like Poe's outfit a lot.
