I should rewatch it someday :3 Do consider giving the comic series a read since they act as interesting continuation to the series.Decided to re-watch Avatar: The Last Airbender today. I forgot how much I love this show, seriously great stuff.
I still don't get what's the big deal with Star Wars to this day.Welp, just bought tickets to The Rise of Skywalker on IMAX 2D.
I hope there won't be a lot of kids in this particular time slot I've chosen (who am I kidding, it's Star Wars)
Disney isn't your friend and isn't out there protecting and preserving art. They do have a great pr machine and excellent social media support.I fucking hate Disney:
It is, among other things, bad news for movie theaters that depend on repertory screenings to shore up increasingly shaky bottom lines.www.vulture.com
If this crap continues, very soon it will be next to impossible to watch films that weren't made in the last 20 years.
After all the crap Disney does (or, doesn't do, to be more precise) with their older titles, this was bound to happen as well with the catalogues of the studios they bought.
And, many of those studios already owned whole libraries of titles from other older studios under their wing, so this is a disaster.
As a film lover, this is very depressing.
Personally it's more because of nostalgia more than anything else. Although I wasn't as invested in the series as much as Blade Runner, for example, I still feel the need to see this series to its conclusion. I'm not sure myself why. I enjoyed the original trilogy since it's a part of my childhood, but I'm mostly lukewarm on the rest. I enjoyed Rouge One a whole lot more than other people, though.I still don't get what's the big deal with Star Wars to this day.
Nor what kids would see in it. Then again it is vanilla cookie cutter.
Kids should watch Doctor Who instead. Now THAT is quality sci fi.
I saw the first episode last night, and it is looking very good indeed. Anamorphic aspect ratio, production values went through the roof. I can't help feeling that The Mandalorian himself is kind of a "silent protagonist" since he hardly talk except for a one-liner here and there. It had an interesting hook at the end though, so I think I'll keep watching for a bit.Gotta say, Mandalorian looks great, and I never cared about SW to begin with. Too bad I won't be able to legally watch it for the next 2 years.
I had a scare since Amazon AU practically smashed the parcel since it's ripped apart around its edges, but thankfully it's double-packed with some air bags.Not yet.
Since I'm located in Europe, and since I had plenty of problems with shipments from Amazon.com, when the UK set was announced I cancelled my US pre-order, and pre-ordered the UK set (which is out later this month).
