Beam me up, Scotty!  I am ready for this movie.

Oops, wrong sci-fi movie.

Yeah, it looks great.  Looks a littler bit darker than typical star wars movies.  More in line with the Empire Strikes Back (which is my favorite of the trilogy).

I could have sworn I saw a trailer in front of the latest Star Trek movie.

December, eh?  Are they planning to release a new Star Wars every year around the holidays, like some sort of Star Wars special holiday? ;-)

They plan to release a movie every year.   I think EP 7 was done last Christmas so that there would be nothing to stop it for a long time at the box office.  Ep 8 was supposed to be May of 2017, but they pushed it back to Christmas 2017, and Rogue One is coming this Dec.  I think that they are trying not to have movies release too quickly on top of each other.  Every December is a year, but originally it was going to be 6 months.

Personally I don't want to see the Episode movies too close together.   I like the three year wait, makes it more of an event.

Be very, very careful about mentioning the Star Wars holiday special.  If he notices, George Lucas will personally hunt you down with the only real world lightsaber in existence.

I don't know why, I just am not excited about this movie.I doubt I'll go to the theater to watch it, though I'm sure I'll watch it later.

I wasn't either, but then I learned the director of Monsters and Godzilla, which I really loved, though not popular, is directing this.

I can't get excited about the spin offs/side story Star Wars movies. Neither this nor the Han Solo movies really have caught my interest strangely enough.

Obviously the big hurdle they have is that we already know what's going to happen but done right is does give the opportunity to tell interesting stories and expand the universe.

I like the darker overtones, but it's Disney, so you know it's going to get lightened up significantly for BO purposes but still looks to be quite the visual feast, love the swamp forest verdant backdrops and the  cast.

This looks a lot better than the Force Awakens.  It has more of a firm noir feel to it.  Sort of like Empire Strikes Back, which by the way is my favorite of the trilogy.

I can't wait to see it.

New international trailer. This is a gorgeously shot movie. Some scenes look like a super duper UHD vacation commercial, except with like people getting shot and killed.:unsure:

Getting good reviews mostly, but some very mixed ones from reviewers I follow. Something about bad CGI. At this time last year, movie fans were going batsh** over The Force Awakens.

    • I think there is plenty of room for them to organize the PGA Tour in a way that maintains a requirement on performance while also being progressive in making sure that PGA tour players are being compensated for being the very best in the world.  Official Money | PGA TOUR Stats Money | Finishes I mean, I think there should be a baseline on the PGA Tour that covers a lot more than 50K a year. If you consider expenses they have, the true meritocracy does not make sense when you consider that even the bottom end players on the PGA Tour are in the top 1% of all golfers. 
    • I’m in the weird position of rooting for the Tour, which has mostly done a shitty job of putting on interesting golf tournaments, because the alternative is an uncompetitive welfare package for rich and coddled athletes, paid for by a foreign government. No matter which side wins, golf probably doesn’t get better. Best case scenario the tour becomes less of a meritocracy, which does not thrill me.
    • I never had a big argument with any of my golfer buddies over it.  I would say the small majority is the people who think the PGA tour is bad and the players should be doing this. I think the rest of the people are split on indifference or not liking these golfers ditching the PGA Tour.   
    • I keep seeing people say majority of golfers are in favor of LIV. I don’t know. So hard to gauge.  The thing I hate the most about all this is how much it has split golfers apart.  I know of several people that went to OR and loved it. Right now it’s splitting the golfers between those with names and those with games. We’ll see what happens next. 
    • even in this case, it doesn’t work — Liberace was still making music that meant something to millions of people  I have never wanted something to fail more in sports than I do this LIV thing. It’s made me way angrier than I expected.
