Re: Do you like The Last Jedi?

Another thing that is relevant is that generally a lot of people do not like the prequels, but they also do not absolutely HATE and DESPISE them. I think the people that did not like TLJ dislike it much intensely than they dislike other films. I absolutely hate and despise AOTC :-D Same tbh. The ar...

Re: Future "A Star Wars Story" Spin-Offs Placed on Hold

i have heard some rumors (fanfic?) about episode 9 and there are some angles they can take to justify some of the disappointing parts of TLJ I was just thinking about this the other day, specifically the Rey's parentage "reveal" that I know was disappointing for a lot of people. Think about what sh...

Re: Future "A Star Wars Story" Spin-Offs Placed on Hold

The fact that kylo is a young man (boy?) who is his own flesh and blood.....who Luke himself was entrusted to care for and train....who he failed......makes Luke's reaction even worse. Not better. He should have been overcome with sadness and an overwhelming desire to save him....not murder him. I ...

Re: Future "A Star Wars Story" Spin-Offs Placed on Hold

Technically Vader doesn't threaten Leia. He threatens to turn her to the dark side. That's what makes Luke irrationally flip out, just the possibility that that could happen to his sister fills him with blind rage. Kylo himself IS a family member who contains within him the possibility of turning to...

Re: Future "A Star Wars Story" Spin-Offs Placed on Hold

ROTJ: Such a character assassination of Luke.

Also, speaking of ROTJ, and Luke's plans that make no sense, can someone explain to me what exactly he was expecting to happen in Jabba's Palace?

Umm, I'm dumb. I meant Ocean's 12. There is no movie called Oceans 10

Because his first instinct when he sensed some darkness in his own nephew was to murder him. Luke, the guy that didn't think the 2nd most evil guy in the galaxy was beyond saving Sure, but his first instinct was to kill him to save his friends and avenge his mentor. It took him a while to come to t...

Re: Future "A Star Wars Story" Spin-Offs Placed on Hold

Star Wars has always been super philosophical and getting at deeper stuff. Re-watch ESB if you don't believe me. Just because you were a kid when you first saw them doesn't mean it's not there. And as far as the Grumpy Old Man Luke characterization--it literally only exists because JJ set up that Lu...

Re: Future "A Star Wars Story" Spin-Offs Placed on Hold

And for what it's worth to get back to the original topic--I think the spin-offs being placed on hold has less to do with the BO performance of Solo in particular and more to do with the behind the scenes shuffling that's happened on every single new Star Wars movie (except TLJ). Those changes are c...

Re: Future "A Star Wars Story" Spin-Offs Placed on Hold

One of my first thoughts leaving the theater the first time I saw TLJ was "I miss when they made good star wars movies, like episode 1." I have never loved the prequels and still don't. But compared to tlj they are masterpieces to me. I really enjoyed TFA too, so it's not like I hate everything tha...

Re: League event #3(?) and calendar requests for states / regionals possible super weekend!

Hey guys! I'd like to play Star Wars again soon, but I also think that priority should be given to scheduling around people who have been playing more consistently. The main weekends that would be bad for me due to the other card game I play: July 21/22: Comic Con/Vegas AGOT regional August 18: SoCa...

Re: Future "A Star Wars Story" Spin-Offs Placed on Hold

lol I don't have "sources" that more people hated the prequels than TLJ--but I feel like most people would agree there was more of a consensus that they were bad when compared to people's opinions about TLJ. Sure, it's anecdotal, and you would occasionally meet a lot of people who were big fans of o...

Re: Future "A Star Wars Story" Spin-Offs Placed on Hold

Matt is correct. Even people who loved the movie have to at least acknowledge the large backlash it caused and there’s definitely been some fallout from that. Thank you, I am correct. But sure, I can acknowledge that a lot of people didn't like it. That doesn't mean that the movie caused "irreparab...

Re: Future "A Star Wars Story" Spin-Offs Placed on Hold

All the Disney movies, save for Solo, have been trash. The Last Jedi did irreparable harm to the franchise. https://78.media.tumblr.com/168c5f6dfc0c77ba5bed06b504ba82f3/tumblr_inline_p13yrmiQf91s75qen_500.png His last sentence is unquestionably true.

Re: SOLO: A Star Wars Story (Official Thread)

I mean....multiple multiple people have posted that they were boycotting Solo because they hated TLJ so much. That's worth noting......especially if you are Disney imo. They should be doing a very thorough evaluation as to why this thing is seriously bombing. I think it's also worth noting that thi...

Re: SOLO: A Star Wars Story (Official Thread)

I saw this movie last night. It was fine. A lot of fun in-references and really cool retro designs. Some cool sequences and the casting was good (Donald Glover as Lando was particularly enjoyable). Otherwise, pretty generic and forgettable imo, with plenty of eye rolling moments. It's probably perso...

Re: Kubla Con Tournament in Burlingame, CA

I had a blast at this event, even if I did end up going just 2-4. Thanks to Austin for running it and everyone else for showing up and just being fun people.

Hopefully your playgroup just gets bigger and better by this time next year, I'd love to play the Kubla Run in 2019 too!

I'm looking forward to this event, it's been a while since I played SWCCG (and my first time going to Kubla) and all the hype around it has me really excited!
