What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

I have yet to watch the Last Jedi, or Solo. Force Awakens and Rogue One were Pretty good to okay. But the new trailer for episode 9.......did nothing for me. I think I officially don't care about Star Wars anymore. Cheers to the folks still excited though.

I’m trying to figure out why superomega thinks Kylo Ren isn’t a skywalker..

 

Because he's technically a Solo? But he's also technically a Skywalker...

I've been thinking about what role Palpatine could have in this film, so here are what I think are the potential options:

 

a Palpatine was the Secret Mastermind behind everything. His force-ghost orchestrated the rise of the First Order and Snoke, along with corrupting Kylo Ren.

b. While Palpatine existed as a force ghost/ bound his soul to an object, he was unable to influence anything. Alternatively he was in the afterlife, before he was resurrected. In short he is not the Secret Mastermind behind the Sequel Trilogy.

c. Palpatine will only appear in some sort of Force vision, or Jedi mind trip, making it ambiguous if its really him. In this case he won't be the main villain of the film.

d. Palpatine will be resurrected properly.

e. Palpatine will be spent the movie as a force ghost, or similar.

f. Palpatine will act as their leader of the First Order. 

 

Those seem to be the obvious options.

1) Rey shouldn't be out in that desert.  Doesn't she know that's bat country.

 

2) The saga comes to an end until the next one.

 Thirty years from now, the new desert living teenager, will have to go find Master Rey, so they can beat the Second Order. Or maybe the filmmakers of 2049 have more creativity.

So is Skywalker the term for a force user who is neither Jedi nor Sith going forward?

 

That's what I think.  I think Rey will name a new order after Luke.

I think we saw the start of the rise of Skywalker at the end of TLJ, as the legend of Skywalker began to spread and bring a new hope to the galaxy. And yes, Rey will be the first Skywalker of the new generation of Force users.

Speculation time! I think Palpatine will remain dead, but is the literal phantom menace behind the First Order. Something is keeping Ben from coming to the light. He has this obvious light side, yet Luke, Han, and Rey couldn’t reach him... it’s the influence of Palpatine, unbeknownst to Kylo. With help from force ghost Luke and Anakin, the crew will have to find Palpatine’s throne room and eliminate Palpatine’s influence to bring down the First Order. They’ll win not by fighting what they hate, Kylo and the First Order, but saving what they love, Ben Solo. We’ll find out that Snoke was the first person to seek out Palpatine’s spirit, and Palpatine’s first order was to bring down Vader’s descendant.

I don't think the Sith can use it. Last I checked, becoming a Force Ghost involved surrendering yourself to the Force and becoming one with it.

I think George Lucas said something to that effect once, but The Clone Wars showed a specter of Darth Bane, albeit tied to one location, so I suppose not a Jedi-level Force ghost.

That actually could make some sense. It would be appropriate that Sidious would potentially be tied to his place of death and if that piece we see is the 2nd Death Star. And if on Endor he could have influenced Kylo to grab his grandads nearby burnt helmet.

 

That and they really don't have to keep to George's rules anymore. I appreciate the sentiment of trying to respect the world he created but it really hasn't been his since Disney got their hands on it.

As far as we know, force ghosts are something only light users can do, but they can always make up some other way for his spirit to remain. We don’t know what Palpatine learned from Darth Plagueis, but we know he was amused by Plagueis’s inability to keep himself from dying. He may be the one Sith who figured something out.

Darth Bane's ghost wasn't really him, it was just an illusion to test Yoda. Bane and Revan's planned appearance in the Mortis arc was axed because it was felt that Sith shouldn't get to become Force Ghosts. So Palpatine coming back as one really wouldn't mesh. (not that that'd stop Disney...)

The trailer strikes the tone I wanted for the current trilogy. Respectful of the legacy whilst firmly saying "This is the story of Rey, Finn, Poe and Kylo."
That's closer to the tone Lucas established. Sure his trilogies were produced out of order but the prequel characters naturally bow out in the OT in respectful ways. The fact that we have this trailer shows up all the strawman arguments for why you must unconditionally love TLJ.

The only minor issue is the implied Palpatine return. That really does feel like fanwank to make the older fans happy and will really depend on how it's utilised.

But right now the world is going to hell so I can't lose my shit over Star Wars.

I have one friend that thinks that the trailer goes against everything was established during TLJ and is disappointed, and other friends who feel that this is more of the same things they didn't like in TLJ and now have no interest in seeing more.

Oh the irony. :D
