The article refers to this movie as both a reboot and a sequel. Huh.

I think Star Wars - Episode VIII: The Last Jedi is a fine follwup to Star Wars - Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

I honestly thought Dan Aykroyd was already confirmed for Ghostbusters 3 perhaps a year ago.

I have to assume they’ll show everything in its proper aspect ratio, just like whenever I watch any of the older (pre-Enterprise) Star Trek shows on Netflix.

I’ve grown only more fond of the film with age. It’s a flawed gem, but to me, a gem nonetheless. I dearly wish more contemporary movies would take the sort of languorous pace this one does. I mean, I love lots of fast action, too (at least if it’s well-executed), but not every movie needs that, and for this particular

I can’t agree the series is bad, though I admit I make certain allowances for it on account of its age. But I think that’s fair - I mean, just put it next to almost any other American TV series of its era, or even most ones that came along a few years later, and Trek comes off better (I have a certain affection for a

Heck, I’m still not done with games from 20 or 30 years ago or more. I haven’t even touched lots of games other folks here moved on from a long time ago (in part because I haven’t kept up with later hardware releases - I’m still planning on getting a PS4, as I have been for years, but somehow haven’t gotten around to

I actually did that, on my brother’s 486, and made it as far as destroying the Death Star! But I didn’t finish the expansions until I could do so using a Flightstick Pro with the Mac CD-ROM version, released years later.

I’m giving you a star for your comment despite the fact you mentioned that certain PC game is 25+ years old. Ouch, that hurts. But yeah.

Seriously. I thought Whitbrook was supposed to be a Star Wars fan.

Technically, he didn’t point out it was an iphone; he pointed out it was an iPhone. :p

I for one refuse to move 1997 out of the “recent” / “last several years” zone.

I also wrote George Lucas in 1994, and I also got a reply from someone at Lucasfilm! My correspondence was a bit different - I sent him a birthday card for his big 5-0 that year (but also noting how much I’d enjoyed all his movies, not just the Star Wars ones but everything else, and how I was looking forward to

Congrats on getting to be the person on the Internet with the most perfect usage of that image. I doubt anyone will find a better use.

I think it very well might be, honestly, even if only for the possibility far more people of today may have seen it than have seen the ‘50s original. That doesn’t mean it’s better, but it’s totally possible that it’s more beloved.

The blurrg first appeared 14 years before that Galaxy Quest thing did. I see enough difference between the two, though, that I don’t think the GQ makers were particularly thinking of the blurrg.

Honestly, I wish they’d make the Ewok movies canon again. It’s not like it would disrupt much of anything that’s been produced in the Disney era.
