    Finn must be hanging with Ewoks. Rey…stares…at…Han Solo’s ghost

    Is it weird that I want a VHS version of TFA?

    • March 26, 2016 at 11:03 am

      I saw it and thought… bet that’s semi rare. The collector in me wanted it for it’s oddity!

    • March 26, 2016 at 12:49 pm

      It’s weird that you want a version of The Fail Awakens at all, unless, of course, you’re another of those pansy SJWs who have become such a plague on this country. Don’t worry though, your days are numbered. Soon we’ll make America great again, and haters like you be on the other side of the wall, just begging to get back in, saying “Please, I didn’t mean it, let me in!”, and we’ll just point our guns at you and laugh. Mark my words.

    • March 26, 2016 at 4:22 pm

      Absolutely not. Classics will always be classics 🙂

    • March 26, 2016 at 9:05 pm

      No, especially as I’ve been wanting a VHS copy of Revenge of the Sith for the past ten years (I have the first five on VHS, so it bugs me. Lucky Australia, getting the only commercially released VHS of ROTS).

  • March 26, 2016 at 12:59 am

    Daisy Ridley’s line: “‘Stares’… like, in asterisks” – I don’t get it. I know context is important but that line makes no sense.

    • March 26, 2016 at 1:11 am

      I read it not as a line of dialogue, but as a line in the script. Asterisks are typically used to denote actions in text, so I assume that her ‘line’ is just to *Stare* at someone

      • March 26, 2016 at 4:35 am

        Thanks, that makes sense

    • March 26, 2016 at 12:25 pm

      Daisy Ridley never should have been in the film, and certainly not shoehorned into in a lead role as a feminazi force-wielding, black loving, Anita Sarkeesian. George Lucas never would have allowed it – ever. With any luck Warner Brothers will buy out Disney and put Zak Snyder in charge of Star Wars, reboot the whole thing, and we can finally get the Star Wars we deserve.

  • March 26, 2016 at 1:27 am

    Elijah Wood has some weird eyes. The stare into my soul.

    • March 26, 2016 at 12:12 pm

      If you love his eyes so much perhaps you should move to Taxachusetts and get married then. Just stay away from the red states. We don’t take kindly to your kind. And yes, that is a warning.

  • March 26, 2016 at 1:40 am

    Why are people still asking about canon ? JJ Abrams said multiple times that what you see IN the movie is canon nothing else hence cut scenes aren’t part of the story, as for the rest I there’s a timeline giving every medium that include canon (books, comics, games, ect…)

    • March 26, 2016 at 3:20 am

      JJ Abrams is a hired gun by LucasFilm. Now that the movie is out he’s not really a good source going forward.

      • March 26, 2016 at 12:20 pm

        JJ was hired by the liberal money-worshippers of Hollywood to betray the true patriots who understand Star Wars as it was created and meant to be, subvert it to the gay SJW agenda, and prostitute it to the disgusting, atheist libtards to make a quick, dirty buck. People like you disgust me. It’s time to make America great again. Just wait.

    • March 26, 2016 at 4:47 am

      The stuff that’s in the novelization is canon too.

      • March 26, 2016 at 10:24 am

        • March 26, 2016 at 11:10 am

          Written like the disgusting, Star Wars hating lover of black, Muslim, feminazi, Communist, libtard, atheist, evolutionist, climate-change believing, Anita Sarkeesian worshipping, SJWs that you are. You’re the one who clearly has no respect for Star Wars as George Lucas truly intended it, a Star Wars without black stormtrooper heroes, without Mary Sue female leads, without Mexican X-Wing pilots, without gay emo villains, and without slanty-eyed Resistance leaders. It’s time to kick out people like you and the liberal descendents of those who betrayed Jesus, build a wall to keep you out, waterboard you if you get back in, and make Star Wars great again.

          • March 26, 2016 at 11:20 am

            Wild Turkey for dinner again, Boss?

          • March 26, 2016 at 12:07 pm

            Butt out and go back to drinking tea on your rainy, cloudy, island, watching your pathetic “Doctor”, and bowing down before your decrepit queen. We true patriots kicked you royalists out long ago. This is none of your business. Get out and stay out. And don’t try sending any of your immigrants over to us. It’s not our fault you opened your doors to terrorists and now don’t know how to get rid of them all. It’s your problem now. Deal with it.

          • March 26, 2016 at 11:36 am

            Bring it on.

          • March 26, 2016 at 11:55 am

            Just you wait. We will. I promise you we will. And when we do there’ll be no Barak HUSSEIN Obummer or Hillary LYING WITCH Clinton to protect you. So don’t get uppity. We all know what happens when people like you get uppity. It’s just a matter of time. We are going to make America great again and make Star Wars great again, once and for all. No more parasites like you. It’s time for a final solution.

        • March 26, 2016 at 8:44 pm

          Your comment has been reported due to underlying disrespect towards the Creator (sdine tone). Next time, think before you comment.

          Oh, and as for canonicity, he did not have to be beholden to the old EU because as the Creator, he was the ultimate authority on canonicity and everyone else had to work within the parameters he set up (and anything that some perceived as an inconsistency was really minor details that can be 1) summed up as the OT having an open-ended nature to it when you really think about it (some things aren’t as literal and ironclad as thought and are actually open to background retcon interpretation) and 2) these minor things can be clarified up with some canon material like a comic or a book and 3) some people are uber nitpickers that are overly-obsessed with every tiny thing and can’t seem to focus on the bigger picture).

          • March 26, 2016 at 9:58 pm

            You are so right, we all needed Hayden Christensen’ s head on Sebastian Shaw’s body in ROTJ.

          • March 26, 2016 at 11:23 pm

            I sincerely hope that you didn’t actually report Power’s comment. If you did, I’ll have to report you for false reports. So tell me you were joking.

  • March 26, 2016 at 5:18 am

    Viral Hide, please upload a copy of “The Secrets of The Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey” documentary to youtube and let us know when it’s done. Thanks! (FYI: Don’t worry about the copyright law book because someone erased it from the archive memory.)

    • March 26, 2016 at 12:15 pm

      Freeloaders like you and all the dirty, lazy, libtard thugs on welfare are exactly why this country is going down the drain, and exactly why George Lucas left Star Wars.

      • March 26, 2016 at 1:13 pm

        And don’t even get me started on Viral Hide (what virus does he have, AIDS?). That faschist thinks that just because he runs this site he can run around like Obummer, playing god, silencing freedom of speech, and trampling on the Constitution, opening up this site to be over-run just like the USA. Good thing we’ve got the Second Amendment, and nobody can take that away from us ever.

  • March 26, 2016 at 4:25 pm

    *Looking around wondering is people who didn’t like TFA are praising BvS***

    • March 26, 2016 at 5:58 pm

      It was terrible. Not the worst movie ever made, but one of the least entertaining thats for sure. Even though I like dark toned movies pretty much, this was just painful to watch. It took itself way to serious. Complete waste of money and time to me sadly. Imo its the worst movie of Snyder, MoS was 1000 times better than this crap.

      • March 26, 2016 at 7:40 pm

        Worse than Sucker Punch? That’s the only film I’ve ever walked out of because it was so terrible.

        • March 26, 2016 at 9:39 pm

          No. Not as bad as Sucker Punch, but less entertaining. And at least that movie had a story, while BvS was just jumping from subplot to subplot to shovel in as many JL characters as possible. But go and see it for yorself, you might like it.

          • March 26, 2016 at 9:45 pm

            Go see it? Um… no, I don’t think I will. Thank you though.

          • March 26, 2016 at 9:52 pm

            You’re welcome. I didnt want to scare you from seeing it though, many people liked it. Maybe just I’m the one who misunderstood it or something. Its pretty epic on fights, has the Hans Zimmer score, so overall its not that bad.
            And its very original. Brand new approach to the characters, so you might going to like it.

          • March 26, 2016 at 10:17 pm

            While I do sincerely you making the personal sacrifice to sit through it, there’s no way I am going to waste good money and 2.5 hours of my life to go see something that has been so badly reviewed. And no, epic fights and a Hans Zimmer score are not enough to make up for what, by nearly every account, is a terrible film. It’s currently rated at only 30% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, and even the “fresh” ratings aren’t very positive. Here’s a sampling from some of the reviews:

            – “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is one of the worst superhero movies ever made. It is worse than Batman & Robin. It is worse than Catwoman. It is worse than last summer’s Fantastic Four (or at least more disappointing). It is the worst Batman movie ever.”

            – “I found myself thinking horrid, unspeakable thoughts during the screening. Thoughts like, ‘come back Joel Schumacher, all is forgiven!’ and ‘maybe David Hasselhoff’s Nick Fury wasn’t so bad.’ What kind of superhero movie DOES THAT to a man?”

            – “It’s like putting your head in a beehive for two and a half hours.”

            – “Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have your head driven through solid rock and glass and brick walls for two and a half hours, blinding flashes of lights unceasingly forcing your eyes shut?”

            – “Wow. It’s worse than I’d feared.”

            – “It’ll make you feel like s***.”

            – “Not as bad as Bush v. Gore, but close.”

            – “Somebody stop Zack Snyder. Somebody save the world.”

            So, basically…. I think I’ll pass. 🙂

          • March 27, 2016 at 12:03 am

            Can someone please explain why they like Hans Zimmer when he has never been that particularly good to begin with and has gotten worse and worse as time as moved on?

          • March 27, 2016 at 12:16 pm

            You are joking, right?

          • March 27, 2016 at 10:51 pm

            No, I am not joking. I truly do not like Hans Zimmer and can’t understand why he’s so popular. And this is coming from someone who knows a lot about film scores.

          • March 27, 2016 at 11:29 pm

            The man made some of the greatest sountracks in the history of modern cinema. From the Last Samurai, Gladiator, Pirates of the Carribean till Inception, but even some animated features like Kung Fu Panda has his incredible music.
            He is the master of emotions. His soundtracks arent as rememberable like a John Williams score (with a definitife humable tone), but his soundtracks work perfectly together with the scene giving them a very emotional tone (sometimes I feel his music is almost like a character in the movie). MoS is a mediocre movie, but Hans Zimmer’s score made it good imo.

            Just watch this scene and tell me its bad:
            Or this:

          • March 27, 2016 at 2:56 am

            So you’re gonna act like a sheep and let others do the thinking for you instead of you forming your own opinion? Yes, they’re critic reviews but so what? Doesn’t mean you have to pay attention to them (go watch it for yourself and come up with your own thoughts instead of succumbing to echo chamber mentality).

            Guess you’re not as a big Batman/Superman fan and just a casual moviegoers (for this genre at least) to let reviews dictate your decision then.

          • March 27, 2016 at 4:13 am

            Um, what? No, don’t be absurd. I’m not going to be a sheep. I’ve read the reviews, which almost unanimously say the film is terrible, thought about it clearly, and decided that I’d prefer not to waste my money and time watching a crappy movie just to come to my own conclusion that it was just as crappy as everyone had warned.

            And regarding being a Batman / Superman fan – the fact is that as a Batman / Superman fan I ought to be even more demanding that the film producers treat the source material well and make a great film, rather than exploiting it to make crap, exactly the same way I would with Star Wars. Being a big fan should not be a reason to excuse film-makers trashing a franchise that I love; it should be reason to exactly the opposite and hold them to a high standard.

          • March 27, 2016 at 4:26 am

            And for reference, I think Batman Begins and The Dark Knight are two of the best superhero films of all time.

          • March 27, 2016 at 5:01 am


          • March 27, 2016 at 6:19 am

            You’re still going by the reviews though instead of you watching it for yourself and coming up with your own conclusions (an if that isn’t echo chamber mentality, then I don’t know what it lol)

            But whatever, it’s your choice to think what you want to think. I’ve already stated what I did (can’t force you to do something you don’t want to do; it has to be out of your own volition) and I won’t get into an argument about this anymore as it’s a moot point. Maybe you can wait till it’s available for rental but that’s up to you.

            (I will mention that the reviews don’t seem to be hurting its box office ratings at the moment. And yes, I know thI old saying, “just because a movie makes money doesn’t mean it’s good” but that’s another argument for another time as I’m not gonna get into it)

            As for source material, I can only speak for myself and I’m mostly a casual fan when it comes to comic book movies so I don’t hold filmmakers accountable to stay true to source material 100% as 1) there are multiple universes for characters in comic books and 2) sometimes things have to be changed up a bit when it comes to movie adaptations to better suit general audiences.

          • March 27, 2016 at 10:19 pm

            If nearly all of the reviews are bad, it probably means that the movie is bad. Why should he waste his time and money supporting filmmakers who made a shit movie? He can just catch on Netflix later anyway. So calm down and stop whining just ’cause other people don’t have the time and patience to watch bad movies.

          • March 27, 2016 at 6:48 am

            I myself enjoyed the movie..I can see where the negative reviews are coming from, there were moments where it dragged and was very slow, but filled with information. Ben Affleck as batman was amazing and Henry Cavil was still a great superman, Luthor grew on me, and Wonder Woman was badass lol. Movie did set up the justice league and had a cool *SPOILERS* “full” cameo in it by one of its members as well as “mini” cameos from the rest. *END SPOILERS* Overall I think it was a good film that set up the future of the DC universe. If you don’t want to spend the money that’s fine, but don’t let the negative reviews scare you they’re HIGHLY exaggerating. But yes, suicide squad appears to be the better DC film coming this year.

          • March 27, 2016 at 7:38 pm

            It was bad.

      • March 27, 2016 at 2:39 am

        Well, I have seen it and thought it was pretty good. Most critics dislike Snyder and were already predisposed to review BvS badly even before it came out. The audience reaction has for the most part been very different from critics’ reaction and the movie is doing well financially.

        • March 27, 2016 at 12:12 pm

          I never really cared too much about the critics. This was only my opinion. And a movie which has Batman and Superman in the title will definitely do well in the BO.

          I do not dislike Snyder. 300, Watchmen, and even MoS were good imo. BvS not. But Im glad you liked it.

    • March 26, 2016 at 8:00 pm

      Fanboys, plain and simple.

    • March 27, 2016 at 5:59 am

      Assfleck and Hakk Snyder? No thanks! I’ll see it someday, I just won’t pay money to do so. You can bet they will fuck up the JL and Batman film even more too.

      • March 27, 2016 at 10:09 pm

        I think Affleck will direct Batman, and he’s actually a good director (Argo), so….

        • March 28, 2016 at 1:33 am

          He’s a far better director than actor or writer. Funny thing is he turned down TFA for it being too commercial but it’s not like Batman will be any less.

          • March 28, 2016 at 1:46 am

            Exactly. If anything, it’ll be even more commercial, since it will be part of a cinematic universe and stuff, at least if BvS is any indication.

          • March 28, 2016 at 2:01 am

            His word is as reliable as Lucas. He also said he was done with comic book haracters after Daredevil too.

          • March 28, 2016 at 2:06 am

            For a big enough paycheck, he’d make Gigli 2.

          • March 28, 2016 at 5:02 am

            Half of which belongs to Kevin Smith who pimps him out in everything he does.

          • March 28, 2016 at 7:00 am

            Yep. The “true fan (shill)” of everything.

          • March 28, 2016 at 8:20 am

            It says something that even JLo and Paltrow kicked him to the curb in spite of being worth millions.

  • March 26, 2016 at 7:47 pm

    How did he get the Blu Ray early?

    • March 27, 2016 at 12:02 am

      It’s likely a review copy.

  • March 26, 2016 at 11:19 pm

    I’m @ultrasoup, the one who asked Pablo about Plagueis being a Muun. It’s cool to be featured in this episode.

    • March 27, 2016 at 6:37 am

      Damn that’s pretty fking cool

  • March 26, 2016 at 11:54 pm

    Elijah Wood better be in episode 8 as Darth Frodo

  • March 27, 2016 at 12:03 am

    Wow, Pablo Hidalgo is incredibly snarky.

  • March 27, 2016 at 5:58 am

    Ugh! Grunberg. I wish he would die in this one but I read he’s in IX too. I wonder if Rey will lose any limbs too? Kind of a Skywalker tradition if that’s what they are setting up. A mechanical legged character would be interesting but it would be near impossible to duel in and they’d likely have to use very dodgey CG to do it.

  • March 27, 2016 at 6:51 am

    RJ apparently has a nice April Fools trailer up his sleeve.
    At least thas the word around the office.

    • March 27, 2016 at 10:11 am

      Which office is that?

  • March 30, 2016 at 3:27 am

    Would be cool if Elijah Wood makes a small cameo.
