Re: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

The Last Jedi was also a cover band. It was just a significantly less talented one that didn't quite understand the original source material, with other bad/useless ideas and worse humor unlike the The Force Awakens cover band.

Re: Untitled Tomb Raider Sequel (TBD)

I enjoyed the first, just rewatched it kind of recently actually. If it makes it out of development there's lots of space for a Lara Croft in her prime free from the trappings of the origin story, though I was totally willing to go along with that first premise.

Re: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

'Robin John Blake' becomes 'Batman' was one of the more dumb things about The Dark Knight Rises.

Han getting slapped with the Solo surname by a random imperial bureaucrat in that Solo movie was also total cringe.

Re: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

Backpedaling on Rey's parentage CAN BE HOW they 'redeem' (I hate this word because you really can't forget about all the evil prior) Kylo Ren. Rey as his presumed dead sister which is why Luke felt the darkness building in him before he confronted him in those psychotic flashbacks in SW:TLJ.

Re: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

Deleting Star Wars: The Last Jedi from my brain for a moment. I'd wondered years ago if they'd ever work Skywalker into the title and for this next one - supposedly the last...for now - they have. So I'm fine with the title. And some of what it implies. The teaser was decent, some of it better than ...
