Hamill and Fisher in Episode 7? (Article) - 11/1/2012 8:30:59 PM

Axia: Thanks! They would have to come up with a Sith character that is completely new. There are some great ones from the novels, sure, but I think Disney wants to separate themselves from the books and focus on a completely new story. Of course, the Emperor and Vader are a couple of the most powerful Sith ever, but there's definitely room to create a new villain. In fact, I just thought of this: what if the person who kills Luke isn't Sith at all, but is just a politically powerful person? Vader was supposed to bring the balance to the force, right? Well, that brings up a question: for how long? Is the prophecy about a guy who brings balance to the force for 30 years? Probably not. So if there is balance in the force, who can the big baddies be? Perhaps there's a schism politically, but we've seen that already with the prequels. I don't know. Either way, whoever kills Luke has to be incredibly formidable. Either way, I expect the movie to have a completely original story.

So, I'm not sure that Leia and Han will have twins. I'm not against that–I actually think the twin thing is a cool idea–I just think that Disney may even go out of their way to show that they are operating outside of the established expanded universe.

First Look: Necronomicon (Article) - 11/1/2012 5:37:14 PM

Brainbox: The newer BSG was some of the best sci-fi TV ever. Your loss. Although I tend to agree with you about switching sexes or races for main roles in reboots.

This movie will suck. Mark my words.

Hamill and Fisher in Episode 7? (Article) - 11/1/2012 5:33:33 PM

I can only see a new trilogy having Luke in it for the first one. I think it would be great if he died in the first installment fighting the new Sith lord, and a couple of his Jedi Knights become the new stars of the story. This would parallel Obi-wan dying in front of Luke, and Qui-Gon dying in front of Obi-wan.

That and I think you need someone that is not a Jedi, because Jedi are essentially boring priests with lightsabers.

Star Wars Episode 7 in 2015 (Article) - 10/30/2012 4:39:33 PM

I can't see this as being anything but good for Star Wars fans. At the very least, I agree that the original, untouched trilogy will probably be one of the first things on Disney's to-do list. And I will be first in line to get it!!

Best news ever!

Mania Review: Cloud Atlas (Article) - 10/29/2012 9:43:49 PM

I just have to go back to Violator's post:

You can make Siri read you reviews?!?!?!?! How the hell did I not know how to do that?!?!

The Walking Dead: Walk With Me Review (Article) - 10/29/2012 9:24:29 PM

I thought the EXACT SAME thing about Liam Neeson and the Governor. Haha! You're definitely not crazy MovieGuy.

That being said, I think the Governor is way off from the comic version I love so much. This is easily my favorite story arc in TWD comics so far. If they mess this up, I'll be crestfallen.

Evil Dead Red Band Trailer (Article) - 10/29/2012 9:18:20 PM

This doesn't look like it's going to be even close to feeling like the original Evil Dead. It shouldn't even have the same title. Not sure why it does.

The original Evil dead was:

1. Funny

2. Gory without being too realistic

3. A student film

This movie isn't any of those things. So, nope, it doesn't count.

Spiderman Sequel gets star and director (Article) - 10/2/2012 4:00:10 PM

Well, I prefer to enjoy the character for what it's worth. Sony may own the rights, which isn't necessarily great, but at least we've gotten Spider-man movies. Remember in the early 90s when there was going to be a Spidey movie and it ended up not getting made? Well, I'd hate to go back to that time.

That's not to say that I'd enjoy any piece of garbage being put out there with "Spider-man" as the title, but I'd hardly say that this movie was a disaster.

GHOSTBUSTERS 3: WHO YA NOT GONNA CALL? (Article) - 10/2/2012 1:30:30 PM

Gothic: Hahaha! Yes, I mean them. I think I got the name confused with the Invincible comic's team, Guardians of the Globe. Whoopsie daisies!
