Yeah, I'm psyched.  There should be some dynamite LFE in this thing.

once upon a time, i saw The Empire Strikes Back -- that is the only Star Wars movie that i’ve seen. I did enjoy that movie and actually a friend worked on it (i think it was that movie, something about a death star exploding was his involvement).  I’m just more enjoy “stories” than special effects.

I am getting tired of Hollywood putting their agendas ahead of storylines.

 

I am a huge Star Wars fan but I will not be spending any of my money on this one. The only way I can send a message to these large studios/Hollywood, is to stop financially supporting their products, until they start putting the fans first again. 

 

I still have hope for the franchise but I think it needs some new blood needs to be brought in. 

 

With all if that said, I am going to see the Joker a second time this coming weekend and I will definitely be buying the 4k disc, when it comes out. Hollywood can still make great movies like this one so all hope isn’t lost.

I think the Fandom Menace is going to strike again. They'll still make their money, but nothing near what they could of. I'll be staying home.

I've watched the new preview about a dozen times since last night.  Definitely looking forward to this one.

Saw the original of the series and then the version with Jar Jar something or other. Never seen another SW movie since.

 

Unlikely I will see this one either. Not much of a movie goer since they quit making movies with large casts based on true stories. The movie version of 'A Bridge Too Far' I can watch every few years.

Didn’t know that Star Wars was still a thing. I have absolutely no interest in seeing this movie. Nothing specifically against the franchise other than I haven’t found the ones I have seen particularly interesting. Then again, I rarely go to the movies and prefer for the most part to watch them at home. That way I can just turn them off when I realize they are not worth my time and that happens probably 80 % of the time. Now please get off of my lawn.

Like many fans I was totally turned off by The Last Jedi.  It was a complete mess.  Disney turned Luke from an inspirational hero, the only one who could save the galaxy into a green milk sucking "get off my lawn" loser.

 

I'm looking forward to the Rise of Skywalker, it has some potential for greatness.  George Lucas was brought back in as a consultant to save the franchise.  I have zero faith in the Disney execs but Lucas really gets us Star Wars fans.

 

I'll see it in theater, one of about two movies I see each year that way.

Josh,

 

You could always make your own without having to worry about driving in the supports with a five lb slege to get below the frost line. This guy did. Nothing says fanatical, dedicated and commited like a homemade wooden sign! ;)

I checked other because I absolutely refuse to fund people in Hollywood who want to destroy America. Who want my grandchildren to have less than I do and be sexually perverted and want socialist tyranny installed AFTER they have their millions they don't want to share. I am sick and tired of virtue signalling from imbeciles who want to slam the door of freedom and wealth closed behind them after they got theirs. I loved older movies like Spartacus and Miracle on 39th Street. Patton and others come to mind where the good guys win and there were moral themes and God was not exiled and cussing and skin were not there where I had to worry about what my kids saw if I took them to see a movie.

 

  So how many social justice warrior tick boxes did they get with this one? These people are disgusting and I could care less about super duper sound and visual effects when it is busy portraying garbage. I highly doubt I will ever go to the movies again or spend any money on them again. TV is the same and we don't have cable or satellite nor seek out local channels because of ads and all the Hollywood crap I mention above. Many years here without and every time I see things at peoples houses or Doctors offices or where ever it seems like what could not possibly get worse has.

 

  Frank Zappa's 1973 song "I'm The Slime" was ahead of it's time.

 

"I'm The Slime"
 

[backing vocals Tina Turner & The Ikettes]

I am gross and perverted
I'm obsessed 'n deranged
I have existed for years
But very little has changed
I'm the tool of the Government
And industry too
For I am destined to rule
And regulate you

I may be vile and pernicious
But you can't look away
I make you think I'm delicious
With the stuff that I say
I'm the best you can get
Have you guessed me yet?
I'm the slime oozin' out
From your TV set

You will obey me while I lead you
And eat the garbage that I feed you
Until the day that we don't need you
Don't go for help... no one will heed you
Your mind is totally controlled
It has been stuffed into my mold
And you will do as you are told
Until the rights to you are sold

That's right, folks...
Don't touch that dial

Well, I am the slime from your video
Oozin' along on your livin' room floor

I am the slime from your video
Can't stop the slime, people, lookit me go

I am the slime from your video
Oozin' along on your livin' room floor

I am the slime from your video
Can't stop the slime, people, lookit me go

DaveA,

I'm not afraid of seeing skin in movies, nor have my girls see it, once they reached 18 YOA. After all, you've seen one person's junk and you pretty much seen them all! Perverted sh1t and gratuitous violence in movies I don't care for. I do agree that Hollywood has become a wasteland for the morally bereft in a lot of cases and many of these people are hypocrites (do as I say, not as I do: Leonardo DeCaprio and Neil Young are just two examples).

 

The recent revelation of paying to get your child into a school that they could never, ever attend on their own merit particularly troublesome. 'Social Influencers' or not! 'Full house' was full of BS; allegedly. Movies based on history have gone downhill with either recycled story lines like the new 'Midway' movie, 'Battleship' or the remake of 'Pearl Harbor' and CGI. Reality TV is mostly a waste of time too.

 

Higher education standards, with some notable exceptions, have fallen in the last thirty years where there are no losers, only winners, and it comes with free indoctrination thrown in to. Whatever happened to academic freedom and allowing anyone on campus to present their particular non-PC viewpoint (much of it by government mandate, a very slippery slope)? When my girls came home from University for the summer, Thanksgiving or at Xmas I sometimes had to work to de-program them and remind them that the world is not all black and white. There is black and white and grey everywhere in the real world.

 

Two of the movies you speak of above come from an era after the fall of most of the big studios and many talented director's etc. where free to make movies that were not formulaic. You probably don't want to see the director's cut of Spartacus though.

 

Common-sense and due process have mostly been replaced with group-think, social media trends. There is little due process occurring in the legal system anymore. Too many unqualified judges appointed by unqualified politicians. Too many people with their own agendas (often political) coming out of the woodwork to stick a rhetorical knife in someone's back regardless of whether that person is qualified, quilty of anything substantial, relavent or not.

 

Critical thinking and deductive reasoning is a rare thing today too.

It's hilarious how people hypocritically bemoan the lack of free expression while criticizing someone's free expression.  Critical thinking and deductive reasoning are rare indeed.  This is often seen in the politicization of everything, especially by malcontents who can't even be happy when they are in power.  The highest criminals cry like the professional victims they deride when they get caught, using words like "unfair." 

Movies are made to make money, not satisfy a set of morals.  I have often said that they are a waste of time, and that time is sometimes more enjoyable than others.  Personally, I prefer the bad B movies because they make me laugh.  The only freedom in our economy is the freedom to make or lose money, ostensibly that is how it should be, or is it that the freedom lovers are really secret authoritarians?

Now, where was I?  Oh yeah, get off of my lawn...

i’m going out on a limb to guess that Wolfbane isn’t hosting an Academy Award “Oscars” Party.

i think i went to the movie theatre in 2012.  hadn’t gone in about five years before that. They’re just not making anything that, to me,  looks interesting or fun to watch.

haven’t read the entire thread so not sure which post this is in reference to or if it was just a general statement.  what you are referring to may be hypocritical or may not be -- i don’t know the particulars.

I feel that others are free to say what they want; but, i can also tell them that i think their opinion sucks. Supporting free expression doesn’t mean that we have to agree with that expression nor that we can’t criticize it -- if we allowed it, then there is no hypocrisy. allowance doesn’t equal support. disagreement doesn’t equal hate. society is drawing lines that i just fail to accept. But just in case ... all the posts on the Klipsch forum are important -- because its members are important. This is a safe space where there isn’t a boogy-man hiding behind every avatar. All views are welcomed ... well, except the ones that are shut down with that pesky little lock icon. On second thought, the moderators will tell you what to think.  Remember, we’ll all equal and valuable (If we like you). Welcome to Frustrated Friday.
