  1. That’s a really well put together video. And I agree with alot of its points. As good as the Kylo Rey stuff is.. the rose/fin/holdo/poe stories ruin the film for me.. to the point I have no desire to watch it ever again.
  2. There seemed like a few hints of lord and miller humour poking through... the shower scene, lando’s innuendo with the droid etc. Infact, I wish it had been funnier..I sure would love to see their cut. It may not be as Star warzy, but would be sooo interesting to see how it differed.
  3. My god the score is criminally bland on this one. I know Williams is 108 and gets a free pass - but enough is enough (he only contributed the Han music and the other guy’s stuff sounds like lift music). His score was one of the only good things about the prequels, so it’s disappointing all his work on these new films sound like someone doing a bland, uninspired knock off of John Williams.
  4. I liked Origins, but Odessey is just going to be more of the same - just with a new helmet and Socrates crammed into a side quest.
  5. I’m really struggling to understand why Disney are going ahead with this based on Solo. Are there really any Boba Fett fans out there? If there are, they are going to be a really niche audience.
  6. The theatrical cut is by far the best. There is an innocence to the child like relationship Maltida and he share - that the directors cut taints (for me anyway).
  7. I have always been amazed that Besson got Leon financed. It’s one of my favourite films of all time - but the directors cut categorically makes Leon a pedo (and basically ruins the film for me). i mean wtf? How on earth did he pitch that one to the suits in Hollywood... always made me wonder.. https://medium.com/@nerdypoc/should-director-luc-bessons-pedophilia-really-be-forgotten-5471a2c7c9d5 .
  8. It’s totally speilberg’s fault. The source material is bubblegum but had a lot of potential with the right director attached. Speilberg’s take was utterly banal and lacklustre. The score illustrates his lack of connection to the story... as it’s like meant for some grandiose period war drama. i adore his past work but speilberg’s should retire from this kind of movie. It’s a massive missed opportunity imo, as under the right direction this could have been something really special..
  9. i though this was great. Really well directed and written. Very, very tense for alot of it.
  10. hmmmmmm.... Id say that is pretty much spot on. Now the Kinect is dead what else is their for Rare to do?
  11. I paid full price for it. I knew next to nothing about it and fancied buying a new xbox game on what happened to be launch day. This seemed like a good shout as the youtube videos looks good and the world seemed beautiful. I also have a soft spot for pirates. In this world of Zeldas and Assasins Creeds I expected a game world full of stuff to do (either on your own or in a crew). Taking on Merchant Ships, Trading, Raids on forts - epic sea battles against the British etc etc. But what I exprienced on my first successful log on (it took me about half day a get that far) was some text instructions - and being dropped onto an island with some other players that were nowhere to be seen. I had no idea what I was supposed to do. After a couple more games I experienced getting locked in the brig multiple times by the other players (for reasons i dont quite understand) and endless wondering about the exquistit lookimg scenary with very little to do. I think the disconnect for me comes from my expectations of a modern AA video game. This one has been entirely misrepresented. Its more like an indy game by a small team of developers. I've had one or two games that have been great (when everyone is working as a team) but they are few and far between (with randoms anyway). Im amazed MS felt this was good enough to release as it is. Because it really isnt up to scratch for a big release. Its more like an experiment. The good news is I bought an digital code from Amazon - and when I requested a refund based on the fact it never connected online they refunded me. Without some sort of rapid and MAJOR content updates I think this game is DOA. As J Pickford said earlier in the thread this really feels like Rare's last game.
  12. I’d love to be a fly on the wall in Lucasfilm right now.
  13. True colours? You total muppet. He was stopped from adventuring, and turned into a masochist arse by Ryan Johnson, for pretty poor plot reasons. And not liking badly written characters is completely different, to not liking female characters. Unless you are a simpleton.
  14. For Rose? She’s basically TLJ’s Jar Jar Binks.
