Hey, just wanted to say that Keanu Reaves wasn't bad in Point Break..or maybe it was Patrick Swayze that elevated it..have to rewatch

I was really hoping for spider-man. In my opinion, his arc was the best part of civil war.

"Chewie, Get off my plane!"

"BB8, hold on!"

The whole "passing the torch to the next generation" would usually imply a death of a original trilogy character, if only to exploit the dramatic effect.

In that regard, I think Han's death would carry the most heft, followed by Luke or Leia.

As much as I would prefer C3P) blasted to atoms I know it ain't happening.

Killing off Chewie, possible, but there's no little wookies taking up the fight, so suspect if anyone is dying is a parental figure.

"Are you ready for this?"

"Hell No!"

Don't believe the trailer, its a trap!

Yeah, kinda suspicious that they all have the same exact pose

I own all the star wars dvd's aside from phantom menance. There is a reason for that. PM is a craptastic movie that has about 10-15 minutes of watchable scenes. The rest of it feels like it was meant for a 7 year old, specifically Lucas own children.

Now some people are saying they got sucked in by the trailers for the PM and so feel very wary of being sucked in again.

The first Force awakens trailer had me a little dubious, but the second one this summer dispelled all doubts. The third one is stellar. I have a lot of trouble understanding people saying they think this will stink like PM after seeing these trailers. I almost suspect some of trolling. This is not fanboy nostalgia talking, from a purely visual presentation it looks like a kick ass action adventure movie.

However, it does help that I am a makes it all sweeter.

With Lawrence Kasdan writing, you can be sure there will be less "I hate sand" and more "Apology accepted Captain Needa" moments.

"just let it in"

So we were tossing around numbers..apparently wookiepedia says 25,000 IMP1 star destroyers were built and who knows how many IMP2's, let alone escort craft like the Nebula's.

So that being said, how many Imperial ships were at Endor? I know the movie doesn't show more than 30 capital ships simply because of screen limitations, but I would think they would have needed more than that to prevent any rebel ships from escaping?

I'm not sure which you refer to, was it the Star Destroyer Devastator which was named after a World War II bomber on the Allies side?

Douglas TBD Devastators were mid-WW2 USN torpedo bombers (well they first flew in 1935, which doesn't portent well for an '42 combat aircraft). They were withdrawn from service after 35 out of 41 present at the battle of Midway were shot down.

There are very few Cliff Claven facts I know in this world that come close to Star Wars. World War II history is one of the few.

I was asking Randarak if he meant he missed the Star Destroyer Devastator which was named after Douglas TBD Devastators of the US Navy. I know their history well.

You are definitively correct. Sadly after their woeful performance and severe losses at the Battle of Midway (considered the turning point of the Pacific theater) there were pulled from active service.

Interestingly enough they were replaced by the newer Grumman TBF Avenger, which gave its name to the Star Destroyer Avenger, which Han later tricked and used to make their escape from the Hoth System asteroid belt and served as the lead communications ship at the Battle of Endor.

Further all films in the OT start with a scene showcasing a Star Destroyer.

It is the Devastator we see in the Star Wars A New Hope and gets the distinction of being the ship we all thought would never end as it gave chase to Leia's Corellian Corvette, so it's the first Star Destroyer we ever see in the OT. The Avenger is the Star Destroyer we see bringing Darth Vader to the Death Star II, in the opening scene of Return of the Jedi.

While for many years the Avenger was considered the ship seen in the opening scene of The Empire Strikes Back, and has the distinction of...

I always thought he was on the Executor when travelling to Death Star 2.

Its a little known fact that the actor that played Cliff was in Empire Strikes Back
beat me to it!

Its also a little known fact John R has a one line quote in a Bridge To far. When he was a Calgary expo last year I got him to sign an autographed Empire pic. And then he blew me away by quoting exactly the line from a bridge to far. Great actor, great dude.

Just to be clear, Relg and the Marag woman were not nice to each other at all, until Relg was told to wise up by Ul and then he stopped being a jerk and go procreate.

As a rule, I like High fantasy like Tolkien, but I also like more "realistic" fantasy..that sounds weird..anyway, like Ice and fire or the Dragonbone throne trilogy.

When I was younger, my favorite popcorn fantasy was the Riftwar and follow ups by Fiest..but then he got divorced, and his writing went into the toilet and he kept writing more and more crappy books to pay alimony presumably.

Actually, right now my total favorite writer is Jim Butler. The Dresden files is the perfect mix of light and grimdark.

Martin I still enjoy but concur the story has been mired in to many sideplots.

I got 14..couldnt remember the name of the game R2 and Chewie played.

I got the number of rebel spacecraft attacking because it was an obsession of mine as a kid..

lets see Red squadron and Gold had 12 fighters, gold had 3 or 6 .

only reading the book helped me understand there were 4 squadrons if I am correct, or was that Lucas screwing around and changing Blue squadron in the book to Red in the movie. Now I am going to have to look that up again. But the number 30 always stuck with me..we certainly don't see 30 on the way to the station..

and we have 3 returning..90% casualities..Han was right, it was a suicide mission

I disliked fifth element and hated Hudson Hawk ..I hadn't felt that kind of loathing after leaving a theatre since Bonfire of the Vanities..which also was a Willis stinker.

It's now seventy days hours, seven hours, and seven minutes to The Force Awakens.

Since the number 7 played some iconic role in the Original Trilogy (seven heroes in each of the OT), I would like to share some "news," that many fans already knew in their hearts, but now, thanks to the Disney publishing Warmachine, is now finally canon.


And may have been the only one to get a shot in.

damn straight..Greedo was not the most competent of scum

Which was terrible writing, and never mentioned outside of that one episode...
It does make sense, however.
It also explains how things like human/vulcan, human/klingon, and bajor/cardassian offspring can happen when they evolved on completly separate planets.
Yes so DNA was rewritten for the sole purpose to send a holographic message to the future. That episode ranks with the worst of TOS Season 3.

Even Spocks Brain?

Right now I am "watching" Star Trek: The Next Generation for the first time (i.e. it is playing on netflix while I do research-related work at home).

I was pretty happy to hear a familiar voice last night and releasing that the actor who played G'kar also had a reoccurring role as a Romulan commander.

Ahhhh yes. I knew I knew him from somewhere.

Also. Don't "wathc" TNG. It deserves your undivided attention.

Most of the first two seasons certainly didn't :)

come on, Tasha Yar killed by a black sludge monster..It was riveting stuff..

Actually, no. I think there was a positive correlation between the quality of the episode and Rikers beard..i.e. when he grew a beard, the episodes got better.

1.Dead Heart of wrapped up the path by incorporating people and events from the previous adventures, and had a suitably epic big bad..
too often I find the sixth chapter feels like an add-on ..I felt that way in kingmaker, pirates, white witches council of thieves and a few others

2. rise of the runelords..stopping the runelord of greed,,great conclsion after long buildup

3. legacy of fire, good end mitigates a crappy part 5..not sure if that why it stands out..usually part 5's of the best.

Humm..I never got through season 4..season 3 was so bad..

still I hear the reboot has Parkman in it..

he was awesome in season 1 and parts of the rest "what Am I thinking Parkamn..?

My biggest disappointment was that Crusade only got a season. I love Gary Cole, try to watch him in anything he is in.

I found all 5 seasons plus crusade at Costco for super cheap 20 each..hmv used to have them going for90 a season

I should warn you, don't go to Zhadum!

1. The Seven sins of The Sihedron
2. It's all Zon Kuthons fault
3. Bad things happen when campaigns collide
4. And for my next tick, I'll make this demi-plane disappear
5. He made a deal that should have been refused
6. Four good, one bad and one ugly
7. Not your father's dwellers of the Forgotten City

The Imperial Star Destroyer from the trailer has a name now.

The ISD Finalizer.

I was hoping for The Grand Moff Tarkin.

In the original Marvel comics run back in the 70s and 80s, I think they did name a ISD after Tarkin.

Bless your heart for remembering.

They named a Super Weapon The Tarkin.

It was basically one of the nine Death Star Super Lasers on an armored engine with a Star Destroyer's Command bridge.

Not enough to destroy a whole planet, but enough to shatter the crust and mantle, destroy all life and make it unlivable.

But since that's now EU and part of Legends, I wanted a Canon ship named after the late Grand Moff.

was there not a subplot during that story where a bunch of imperial officers tried to assasinate Vadar, one by trying to throw him out of an airlock.

how I can remember something like that from almost 30 years of not reading it, but cannot remember what I did last week..sheesh

This reminds me of playing MERP, it always like, ah what is the point, Arthedain is going to run over in 300 years anyway.

Anakin didn't follow the first rule in a crisis situation, always keep the high ground.

I know its not cannon but didn't Jorus Choabath or whatever his name was take control of a star destroyer crew. And wasn't that the reason Thrawn had yasmiri all over his bridge?

A civil campaign is my second favorite after mirror dance. Its the sheer energy of the insanity.

I'm talking about alternate Earths, not a fantasy setting at all. In this scenario, the parallel universes are the result of time travel, so all the differences would be traceable to human meddling with history at some point.

If this is so, then you really really need to read the guns of the south by Turtledove,

South African white surpremisits travel back to 1860 and give Robert E Lee ak-47's.

what if the \south won the civil war?

seriously, you want alternative history, read something by Harry Turtledove.

My favorite is when a race of alien lizards invade earth in 1942.

I am worried we will have a story about a drow ranger exiled from his people.

SB :"The fact that you are a sheriff is not germane to the situation. "
SBTJ:"The g%* d*#n Germans got nothin' to do with it. "

this will be one of the easiest I have ever put forward, but what the hell:

" Get you ass to Mahs. Get you ass to Mahs. Get you ass to Mahs. Get you ass to Mahs. Get you ass to Mahs. Get you ass to Mahs. "

"I feel the need, the need for speed!"

"in 1987, NASA launched the last of America's deep space probes"

I wanted more CGI! More plot Holes! More inconsistencies from the original trilogy! More dialogue about how the characters hate sand!

So this is just like the movie quotes thread, put in a quote or famous catchphrase from a tv show of any era and see if anyone can guess them\

I will start with an easy one:

"In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison.."


its from the 1984 movie, I can't recall if its the theatrical version or directors cut

P:"Some thoughts have a certain sound, that being the equivalent to a form. Through sound and motion, you will be able to paralyze nerves, shatter bones, set fires, suffocate an enemy or burst his organs. We will kill until no Hark..... breathes Arakeen air"

"Two or three years ago it was just another snake cult, now... they're everywhere. It is said that they are deceivers... they murder people in the night... I know nothing.

just for motre flavour

Dragon age 2 disappointed its fans\
Dragon age 3 won back some of those fans

Mass effect 3..majorly disappointed all of its fans, until the free expansion which case most of the fans were still upset but by that time had doused their torches and put the pitchforks back in the barn

Admiral JP :"This business will get out of control. It will get out of control and we'll be lucky to live through it."

separate scene

CT:"We're going to kill a friend, Yvgeni. We're going to kill Ramius"

DA:"Flash, I love you but we only have 14 hours to save the earth!"

S:"a handful of people on a leaky boat are going to save the world?!"

R: "Exactly!!!"

bought it a week ago..finding a bit of a challenge, since not sure how to effectively use some of my npcs..Durance in particular keeps dying.
