    I like TFA. But my sock drawer is more surprising.

    • November 28, 2017 at 5:57 pm

      LOL. Thank you. This just made my day. I don’t like TFA, but I don’t think it is the worst SWs movies. Seriously, the hyperbole is real with some of these fans. Have they rewatched Attack of the Clones? I shudder at that movie. The same goes with those who overly praise it and say criticism leived to the film is wrong.

      Bonus points for adding sexism and racism into the mix. But I digress.

      But in spite of the various problems, I do enjoy where it led us to. And I look forward to seeing the saga continued going forward. Because, I am confident we won’t get another TFA, ever. Not with everyone’s eyes watching and not without the veil of nostalgia.

      • November 28, 2017 at 6:51 pm

        I agree w/ both. TFA wasn’t new, it wasn’t fresh, it was update that reestablished the saga for casual fans (people who aren’t on this site :). We may not have wanted that movie, but the PT wasn’t that good moviewise, but the story needed to be told, not in a novel at least. TFA was the blockbuster that Disney a: needed to see if Star Wars was a worthwhile franchise, and b: get people to realize that SW was back. How else to do it but do what was safe, so now they can go into the unexplored areas, take some risks. Can’t wait for TLJ.

        • November 28, 2017 at 7:01 pm

          “Star Wars” (the first one), way back in 1977, wasn’t new, fresh or original either (and the same goes for ESB and, even more, for RotJ) – so I always felt that as kind of a moot point, when it comes to this franchise. Granted, the special effects were (mostly) unseen, at the time, but even most of the visuals were “stolen” from (or, at best, inspired by) other stuff and, 40 years later, there isn’t really a lot that can be do with SFX that feels “new”.

            Were you there like? 77.
            If not then you know nothing.

        • November 28, 2017 at 10:22 pm

          I cannot say I fully agree with playing it safe. I see it as special pleading, trying to make an exception for something in spite of standards we as a society have towards something. But really, casual fans, while I understand why due to the PT; I honestly believed that their fears were misled.

          George Lucas wasn’t a part of SWs and Kasdan came back, even if I think it is overrated. And still, really; I just found the attempt lazy. TFA wasn’t bad because it was a copy of ANH. I know plenty of advocates who like to shift the goalpost and in turn create a strawman out of this point.

          Because really that creates a very slippery slope. Why I find it bad is the following: 1) Too much Mystery boxing, 2) not enough world building and 3) too fast/ referential.

          The latter was irritating because the movie felt more like Spaceballs/ a fan-fiction than actual SWs. The other aspects irritated me, especially the world building as the OT had it. So really, given how this movie is a sequel to ROTJ, some was needed. I wasn’t expecting PT levels and I don’t need that. Rather, just enough to where it is hinted and then the New Canon can be that other window to explore.

          Overall, TFA is more or less a glorified TV pilot. I don’t give it a favorable chance because Lord the the Rings, a trilogy that is much better than the OT; had something like this. But each movie was self-contained, having intrinsic value and in turn being a single piece in a bigger story.

          Unless TLJ is so amazing, which I am expecting it will be better than TFA, then I may re-evaluate it. Other wise, I will just take the book as canon and that is it.

      I loved TFA… but can agree that nothing was really surprising other than some of it’s humor. I didn’t see Poe making that Mask joke. That surprised and delighted me 😛

      • November 28, 2017 at 8:02 pm

        That’s not how the force works!

  • November 28, 2017 at 5:33 pm

    Daisy, I’m glad you’re here to tell us these things.

    • November 28, 2017 at 6:14 pm

      lol yes

    • November 28, 2017 at 6:57 pm

      I can’t not hear old Luke’s voice making these comments with your avatar lol.

      • November 28, 2017 at 9:33 pm

        Actually it’d be Han’s voice from ESB.

  • November 28, 2017 at 7:01 pm

    Same questions same answers for the next two weeks. Let mark answer for u he actually gives some detail. Could have gotten better answers from a porg

    • November 29, 2017 at 2:46 pm

      is that blurring the line between good and evil?

  • November 28, 2017 at 8:09 pm

    I’m unfamilier with GMA (Being British) – Are the presenters animatronic or CGI?

    • November 28, 2017 at 8:20 pm

      A mix of both. They are an animatronic under skeleton with some CGI touch ups to try and sell the realism. We aren’t quite there yet.

      • November 28, 2017 at 8:37 pm

        That’s what I wondered. Tarkin was a massive step forward, these aren’t even close.
        At first I thought the GM stood for Genetically Modified, but now I understand it to mean Good Morning.

    • November 28, 2017 at 9:03 pm

      Daisy’s CGI dress hurts my eyes!

    • November 29, 2017 at 4:29 pm

      They are a special kind of torture robot programmed to talk endlessly about such riveting topics as the Kardashians, Dancing with the Stars, and the British Royal family, to name a few. I think they got them from North Korea who used them to torture dissidents in prison.

  • November 29, 2017 at 12:08 am

    Not sure how I feel about “blurring the lines between good and evil”. Star Wars is based on the simple premise of good VS evil. You know who the bad guys are and you know who the good guys are.

    • November 29, 2017 at 9:13 am

      Han shooting first

      Luke learning that his enemy (Vader) is in fact his father

      Luke saying he’s convinced there is still good in Vader
      Vader turning on Palpatine as his son is being tortured

      Obi-Wan defeating Maul while seeking revenge for what he did to Qui-Gon.

      Anakin killing the sand people for what they did to his mother

      Windu wanting to kill Palpatine without proper trial

      Cassian killing the guy that just gave him some valuable information
      The Rebellion killing Jyn’s father

      …You’re right, SW was never about “blurring the lines between good and evil”.

      • November 29, 2017 at 11:57 pm

        Lando betraying, then helping his friends.

        • November 30, 2017 at 8:02 am

          I actually thought of that one later on 😀

    • November 29, 2017 at 10:59 am

      After ANH, the beauty of SW is that it definitely does NOT become a “simple story of good versus evil” – I imagine if it had the franchise would have spluttered and died a long time ago…. [old OB1 voice] a lo-ong time ago 🙂

  • November 29, 2017 at 12:08 am

    As long as they don’t redefine good and evil, it’ll be fine…

  • November 29, 2017 at 4:14 am

    Interesting how she ran “Rey and Luke Skywalker together.

  • November 29, 2017 at 6:18 pm

    I could watch her make toast all day.

  • November 30, 2017 at 1:41 am

    Hearing Daisy say “Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope.” made my week.

  • November 30, 2017 at 7:11 am

    In the Kelly & Ryan show interview —- again, so interesting to see Daisy get uncomfortable and say “It’s different” when asked about the film. Not “It’s Amazing”, not “It’s so inspiring”, just …..”It’s different.” Foreshadowing.
