Solo: A Star Wars Story


#344

TBF Fringe IS a better version of the X-Files.

:smiley: :smiley: :smiley:


#346

Nah


#347

there’s going to be a new star wars every year now until the end of time


#348

This is more about how much I lost interest in the X-Files during S3 than how great I think Fringe is, TBF.


#349

same with these ‘Furious’ movies and the ‘Transformers’ shite - they are way up there in the all time box office lists


#350

Hmm. Are they even any good at writing like? The story of GOT went to shit once they went off the GRRM stuff


#351

Good writing’s never been a problem before etc.


#352

fringe was great, got off to a slow start as an x-files derivative but season 2 or 3 when it got into the swing with the parallel world was really great, the core story of walter and pacey’s father/son relationship just gave the show more substance than the x-files, and the sci-fi story they built around that was really interesting, season five was a bit weird but the way they tied it back into walter/pacey story was really satisfying. The only thing I didn’t like is how it often dropped off entire story threads, like the ‘machine’ at the end of season three, I guess it kept things interesting but each time I had adjusted to a seasons new premise it would shift again

I hope we end up with more Star Warses than James Bonds. Only 15 more to go.


#354

That’s not happening any time soon. He’s been talking it up a lot recently.


#355

How long do we have to wait for the Jar Jar Binks origin story? I am excited already.


#356

Or maybe some slow gripping political movies about the trade blockade thing.


#357

I predict solo will flop and Disney will use this as a reason to streamline their Star Wars offerings and announce they are going to drop Johnson and keep this other guys trilogy


#358

You are dreaming. Making less money is still better than not making the money at all!


#359

Time will tell


#360

They keep making more Bonds, but at least it’s only 1 every 2 or 3 years…


#361

Disney have hardly even begun to milk the toy possibilities of the entire Star Wars universe

There are entire alien races & technologies to be invented

Tbh, the Star Wars universe is way too humanoid as it is


#362

At this rate there will be 15 more Star Warses before the next Bond comes out.

I got some weird EU comic from the library years ago where someone went to a distant planet to train as a Jedi and it turned out the master was actually some giant blue cow / elephant thing. Would dearly love to know what the fuck that comic was, still think about it occasionally and laugh.
