I'd trade all the Jar Jar Binks to have Carrie back again.

Preach @Ken. All the good people that died last year and yet no coronary for Darth Orange
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm Richard S:

Oh, the memories of when the FIRST movies came out, and fandom hadn't messed them up yet.
  9:44pm Switchblade Batman:

Mark Hamil has this great story with lunch with Harrison Ford. He ends up doing this killer impersonation of him.
  9:48pm Danne D:

funny to hear Mark Hamill was typecast as a villain before Star Wars
  9:52pm Switchblade Batman:

@Danne D well he is probably the best Joker ever, so I could sort of see it.
  9:56pm Lilith21:

  9:58pm Danne D:

I could swear Mummenschanz once played my elementary school
  9:58pm Wade:

Hey DEZ! Are these the hot players from Mos Eisleys bar?

Not hot, horn players!

  10:01pm Wade:

Thanks for no spoilers!
  10:03pm Lilith21:

Merry Christmas WADE!!
  10:03pm Switchblade Batman:

I agree with you @Dez. It was the movie that Star Wars needed.

Which theater did you go to?
  10:04pm Danne D:

wide open would seem to be the point :)
Avatar 10:05pm geezerette:

Nog noggin is a semi-serious condition.

Merry Christmas!!!
  10:05pm Wade:

Mark Hamill once liked one of my tweets, DEZ
  10:06pm Switchblade Batman:

Jealous of you @Wade
  10:07pm Wade:

Gary Oldman is the shit! I like when he, as Churchill, rolled into Munich in an AT-AT

evening James, Geezerette, everyone!
  10:13pm Switchblade Batman:

@wade it would be my twitter banner forever if i was so blessed
  10:16pm Wade:

It was this one, Switchblade...
  10:18pm Switchblade Batman:

It was pretty funny @wade
  10:18pm sara:

(nice geezerette)
  10:19pm JakeGould:

Well, I saw “The Last Jedi” and my complaint has little to do with “Star Wars” universe stuff, but rather the pacing, editing and need to shove TONS of unneeded jokes that seemed to be right out of “Spaceballs” in the film.

The overall plot points and even the scenes that straight lifted shots and ideas from the original trilogy? I can deal with. But if they played every “jokey” thing seriously, that would have made this a better film.
  10:21pm ztnap:

my girlfriend left me today. how would you deal?
Avatar 10:21pm Dave Sustain:

James update the playlist bro!
  10:21pm Alex F.:

@Jake - May the Schwartz be with you!
  10:22pm ztnap:

play something depressing, please.
  10:23pm JakeGould:

@AlexF: Ha! Rey cutting down a boulder with a lightsaber was awesome… And that very cool moment was ruined by someone saying “You know what this scene needs? That huge rock almost comedically killing two frog nuns who are caretakers on the island…”
  10:25pm JakeGould:

“We ain’t found shit!” www.youtube.com...
Avatar 10:33pm geezerette:



Love "Spaceballs".
  10:34pm Switchblade Batman:

I have a similar beef @jakegould. I thought it was waaaay too quippy and needed some editing.

But overall I thought it was an excellent addition, and I liked how it was a transitional movie.
  10:38pm Jim the poet:

Not enough Jar Jar
  10:38pm blee:

that Ben Tucker piece is the jam.
Love that bass solo.
  10:40pm JakeGould:

@JimthePoet: I think that four breasted thing that Luke randomly milks out of nowhere more than fulfills the Jar Jar quota.
  10:41pm JimmyfromKearny:

I'm diggin' what DEZ is puttin' down here!
  10:42pm Lilith21:

Merry Christmas Jimmy!!
Avatar 10:42pm James Fernandez:

the jokes and green milk are definitely a little too on the nose in some spots, no question
  10:42pm Switchblade Batman:

I liked that cow thing. I felt it was an homage to A New Hope
  10:44pm JakeGould:

Rey as forward/backwards reflections in that “Dark Side of the Force” realm was great. Too bad that was it.
Avatar 10:44pm geezerette:

Dez, digg'n. 0<(:c3>
Avatar 10:45pm James Fernandez:

that was my bad @blee, got ahead of myself on the credit for Comin' Home Baby. Herbie Mann version there
  10:46pm JakeGould:

Also, will Finn learn how to kiss a human being by the next episode? Between the last film and this film, he’s clenching his mouth like he’s holding in vomit. I’ve seen more realistic kisses in Hal Roach comedies.
  10:47pm Switchblade Batman:

I loved the explanation to Rey's parents. It felt like a fuck you to the worst of fan theories
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm fleep:

Oh that organ sound is life itself. Greetings DEZ and galaxies far far away.
Avatar 10:49pm geezerette:

Love Hal Roach. He'll be legal Next Monday.

  10:50pm JakeGould:

@SwitchbladeBatman: Yeah, but what was the basis of that explanation? Darth Vader revealing himself as Luke’s father is one thing. In this case how—and why—would Kylo Ren know? There was too much “saying” and not enough “showing” in the film; exposition is not storytelling.
  10:50pm devlawn:

I'm enjoying this set, good stuff dez.
  10:51pm JakeGould:

Anyway, given the tone Rian Johnson is taking—and Disney is backing—I wonder if “The Star Wars Holiday Special” will be acknowledged in future films. Maybe Lumpy and the rest of Chewbacca’s family shows up?
  10:53pm hola:

what day is it
  10:54pm hola:

hey no Star wars talk, I'm seeing it tomorrow
  10:54pm Lilith21:

Merry Christmas Hola!!
Avatar 10:55pm geezerette:

Underappreciated fact, Disney is actually NOT the happiest place on earth.
Avatar 10:55pm James Fernandez:

thanks, dev. Jake, I do think you are right about saying vs. showing. They rely a lot on the information revealed in the books without keying into them in the film, like how Kylo found out Vader was his grandfather. I don' t think they have in film yet.
Avatar 10:56pm James Fernandez:

enjoy it Hola!!!
  10:57pm JakeGould:

@JamesFernandez: Well, I didn’t know that regarding the books. I think what’s happening with these Disney films its they are purely the tent-poles that hold up all the other media connected to the “saga” now. I wonder if—for example—things like the “Star Wars: Battlefront” world will be used to explain things even more.
