If you just seize the idea that this movie is a farce through and through and is meant to be as irreverent and silly as possible, the lack of things like “cohesive story” is not as much of an issue.

I adore the fact that it brings in so many big name actors and then slays them within five minutes of their appearance. Read more

The vineyard that, as the redlettermedia guys pointed out this week, supposedly burned down in Generations.

Yeah, it looks more like VN art than anime, to me.

That’s an outlier though, because even though it was more powerful, it was still cheaper thanks to every Xbox One wearing Kinect around its neck like an albatross. It may be more proper to say the most expensive console never wins... but the two usually go hand in hand.

At least Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones have memorable dialogue. Bad dialogue, but eminently quotable, like the original trilogy. This new trilogy honestly doesn’t have more than two or three lines I remember even after seeing the films several times each.

Throughout console history, the most powerful machine has never been the top seller in its generation anyway. It’s always about games.

I mean, it released on PS3 in Japan, so power clearly isn’t the issue.

I got my head crushed live by the Head Crusher, and it’s all been downhill from there.

Yeah, but technically this novel overlaps with the movie. And if there’s anything in the novel that contradicts the film, the film is what would be canon while the novel is not.

Isn’t the canonicity of film novelizations always highly questionable?

This is a special edition more or less; the original Nt mini run was less. And bear in mind that the jailbroken firmware available for the Nt mini gives this unit a lot of really cool additional features like the ability to play ROMs, rip carts to ROM, copy old battery save files (I preserved a 30 year old Zelda II Read more

It certainly doesn’t look like anything you could do advanced martial arts in.

Bob Gale has said he will never let it happen, and as of now, I think the original movies still look good enough—the settings are still relatable enough, the performances and jokes contemporary enough, and the effects good enough—that they don’t need remakes. Read more

Not really, because Lord of the Rings was never expanded or altered as a result of the split, and it’s been known since nearly the beginning as three books. It’s not an apt comparison at all.

I don’t think that opening starfield is a “waste of time” at all. It’s a calm before a storm, and its length, that long, slow breath, frames the epic that’s to come. I miss it in the Remake.

What I’ve seen of FFVIIR so far frequently stomps all over the little touches of the original game. Like, I always loved the way Read more

...The Lord of the Rings was already broken up into three books. Perhaps you meant the Hobbit, the quality of which is... maybe not the best example you could have used.

Hey now, Trek can be done very well in serial form. Just look at DS9. The difference is that Moore and the rest were great writers of drama, political intrigue, snappy dialogue, and gripping scenarios.

I wasn’t really including Discovery in anything, only that Trek’s history of great storytelling ended with it.

I guess Kurtzman really loved The Last Jedi. What I dislike the most about both is that there’s a deeply rooted cynicism behind these stories in which a beloved hero commits the ultimate sin a hero can commit and quits. It’s this underlying attitude that heroism is false and needs to be exposed for the lie it is.
