Supposedly a leaked poster.  So uninteresting it is probably real :p

It'd also be a shame considering how many of those images are re-used from previous posters.

 

Hence why it's probably not.

 

Didn't know that.  Shame my hope for their incompetence is in vain then.

Using HBO through the Amazon Firestick : Watched "Skyscraper". I usually at least giggle-lightly enjoy any movie The Rock is in, but this film was a total waste of space, where not even his charisma could save a single moment. Even the action sequences had me snoring.

 

So then I watched "Rampage." 3 genetically mutated super sized animals running around a city, also with The Rock. Much better. Ludicrous and predictable/lame plot of course, and not quite as tongue in cheek as one might hope for, but a lot more fun than Skyscraper at least.

I watched Solo on Netflix for the first time last night. I thought it was pretty good. The guy that played Han was a little irritating at times but over all it was a fun movie. Until the end. According to my math Darth Maul was dead at least 15 years in this movie's timeline. How is he at the end of it? Or was that even him?

I think the Clone Wars cartoon showed that Maul survived and received a robotic lower-half replacement to keep on keepin' on.

if it makes you feel better, the ends o' the maul narrative finally come together, and complete the circle.

 

 

 

 

HA! Good Fun!

Robotic lower half huh? Well, now I remember why I hate fantasy & sci-fi most of the time. Just because anything is possible doesn't mean it should be done. 

 

You know what? I hate when a killed off character is improbably resurrected. That has got to be the weakest story crutch. That is even worse than a "Chosen one" narrative. Although it might be a little ahead of time travel... but not by much.

Yeah, I don't think George Lucas really understood that circa 1999.

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

And then Obi Wan kills him in an unimpressive "duel"

Yeah ressurecting dead characters is bad. Somehow it worked in the Clone wars animated series though if you could live with the bad story premise. I was surprised by how much I liked that tv show, did not expect to at all.

 

Rebels was terrible in comparison.

image and vid

am gonna quibble over designation o' "greatest cast o' zombies" appellation.

 

these guys have stranglehold on quintessential zombie casting.

 

that said, zombieland may be the only zombie movie we ever enjoyed, so resurrecting bill murray, as it were, and doing a humorous  zombie film with folks such as carol kane, steve buscemi and adam driver is gonna get our attention.

 

were it really necessary to do zombie makeup for iggy pop?  didn't try to make bill murray look older after all. overkill?

 

HA! Good Fun!
