TFA, Rogue One, & Solo were great! But TLJ.....it still bothers me lmao. I wish they could remake TLJ before making episode 9. Oh and one more thing. REMOVE Rian Johnson. JJ Abrams was ALOT better dude.
Tbh i like the last jedi and tfa i want to see the next episode in the trilogy instead of the fillers but i do like how it kind of links back to the prequels which i liked also dont go hating on me for having an opinion i like the very old and the very new movies so thats that you cant tell me to change my opinions, okay?
A CGI Darth Maul fisted into Solo for the most shallow fanservice ever...and ruining holograms in the process by coloring them because the producers decided the audience was too dumb to recognize one of the most recognizable characters in SW history if they didn't have color...
Would have been cooler if Q'ira would have contacted Boba Fett to go after a certain smuggler, for a handsome reward! Hence start the perpetual cat and mouse game between Han and Fett. Would have made more sense to the everyday fan...
Ehhhh... I LIKE IT but like I kind of wish it was more down played... like he did NOT have to take his saber out and brandish it foolishly? Just hearing him under a shadowy figure would've been far more intimidating, in my opinioin
Apparently he DID have to take out his saber. From what I heard, some people who saw early screenings of the film didn't realize it was him or flat out refused to believe it was him. Hard to deny it when you see the saber.
When a small 90 second appearance of a character from the most hated movie of the generally hated Star Wars prequels is the absolute highlight of this movie, then it tells a lot about this movie and Disney's Starwars itself hahaha
Lucas himself stated that Star Wars was always intended to be enjoyed by 12-year-olds AKA kids. “Friendships, honestly, trust, doing the right thing, living on the right side and avoiding the dark side,” Lucas said. “Those are the things it was meant to do.” And, technically, if it's for kids, it's for everyone.
Solo: A Star Wars Story from $4.99 Daaahahahahahahah! If Disney didn't chop the head off the EU, they could've milked Star Wars for years! So much content in the EU. Even more so what greatly upsets me is Star Wars Clone Wars (the 2D) bridged the gap between AOTC and ROTS, but Disney said it's not canon anymore. Lame.
I just want Maul to finally stop appearing because they just keep bringing him back. Phantom Menace - Clone Wars - Rebels - This ( I know this is actually before Rebels in the timeline, but I'm listing in order of release.
+Ormi Ader he was being manipulated by his former master Darth Sidious that's why he killed his brother Savage Opress and left Maul alive he.
During the Clone Wars and right after the Clone Wars crime bosses gangsters and organized crime was on the rise when the Republic and the Jedi were busy with the separatists.
Sidious needed to control the criminal underworld why not manipulated to constantly fight amongst itself so it doesn't become a threat.
Just as Darth sidious himself said "you have become a rival"
Cuz maul made death watch, and some of the most powerful Criminal gangsters in the universe to come together under his over boss rule.
To anyone who didnt watch either The Clone Wars or the Rebels tv series and are wondering how Maul is alive, here: https://youtu.be/2KYm8OcE8oU
Dont worry, he didn't just make a cameo b/c disney wants money. Maul was brought back during the Clone Wars tv series and had an entire arc dedicated to him that spanned at least a season or two. Since the show is episodic (meaning that each story arc is self contained and the show is told in a non-linear fashion) you can literally pick up at the start of any arc without having to watch any previous stuff.
If you want to watch his story in the Clone Wars, you'll wanna watch these episodes in order:
1. "Witches of the Mist," (S3E14)
2. "Brothers," (S4E21)
3. "Revenge," (S4E22)
4. "Revival," (S5E1)
5. "Eminence," (S5E14)
6. "Shades of Reason," (S5E15)
7. "The Lawless," (S5E16)
The Genius Who Invented Economics Blogging Reveals How He Got Everything Right And Whats Coming Next.
Bill McBride, Calculated Risk The economics blogosphere was invented in early 2005 by a retired technology executive in Southern California named Bill McBride.
Thank God for that, because his blog, Calculated Risk, has been an invaluable and influential read for numerous reasons.
For one thing, its always been right. In its early days, when we all started reading it, it was way ahead of the curve in terms of warning about the housing bubble, horrible bank lending practices, and generally the economic collapse. From his perch in Newport Beach, CA he could see first hand the people taking out loans worth 10x their income, filling their Inland Empire garages with Harleys and Boats that they obviously couldnt afford.
But unlike many other bloggers who made a name during the crisis, he didnt stick with the doom and gloom message. He started making arguments for a GDP rebound in 2009.
Then in February of this year, he made his most important call: He announced: The Housing Bottom Is Here . McBride had officially come full circle from his days warning of housing collapse. Today, 8 months later, the housing bottom is becoming general consensus.
In addition to being correct on the economy, Calculated Risk has imparted the internet with other good practices, such as dutifully charting out the data, and examining data in an impartial, apolitical, non-hysterical manner.
