    If she can mud wrestle Ren, I'll be keen to watch.



    I'm pretty fucking sure that Ren/Rey have a connection like the Solo twins in the EU.

    George Lucas complains about the lack of originality in the new movie, says he felt like he sold his kids to white slavers. I thought the movie was bad, but I wouldn't go that far.

    Since that phrase is apparently not well understood, judging by some of the media commentary I've seen -- white slavers are pimps, not actual slavers, which is probably worse. Think on that one for a moment -- if you liked the force awakens, what does that make you?

    If you take his comments in context to other ones hes made over the last year it's clear that he resents that Disney threw out the treatment for the sequel trilogy he wrote. Him providing this treatment and creative input was part of the deal he made with them when he sold the franchise and I think he was surprised they decided change the direction. Since we don't know what his original treatment was its hard to say what Disney kept from it and what they didn't but apparently it was enough to upset Lucas.

    He's since apologized for the comments and I get the impression he realized that wasn't the best way to express how he feels.

    I suspect that you're right.

    I really, really, really hope that they're not twins (like Luke and Leia) as that would just be too, too derivative and irritating.

    My guess, for what it's worth, is that Rey is Luke's daughter (even though Jedi knights are not meant to marry).

    Oh shut up and fuck off.
    The only reason anyone gave a shit about you for the last 30 years is because you were on Star Wars like ISIS on a foreign journalist. now that someone rescued the hostage, (paying you the equivalent of a small country's national GDP, not by shoving Seal Team 6 up your ass, by the way) all you can do is whine about it. Jesus, Sandusky- stop talking about how much you loved the kids. We saw what you did with them.

    How long have you been doing this and yet fail to grasp the ingenuity of the concept that is "the utility belt"?

    When the camera pans over to the stormtrooper as he tosses his other weapons aside you can see it clearly strapped to his belt.

    Yes. It's clear as day he has it on him.

    Speaking of dumb critics, anyone thinking the movie isn't doing well needs to look at this. 3:50 on a Sat. Thought I might get a ticket for a third showing but it's completely sold out.

    if you look at actual interview, he wasn't an ass - the headline is a bit taken out of context and provocative

    but it's good that someone new directed SW, I guess we all agree to that. Lucas haven't made anything good for a while.

    Yeah, he was an ass. That was the most inflammatory line, but it was pretty clear from the interview, and others, that he's not happy with what Disney's doing and that the general public isn't bowing down in awe of his genius. Well, fuck him. People don't like most of his work. Get over it. He sold Star Wars for four billion dollars. Four. Billion. Dollars. He doesn't like what the buyer's doing with it? Well he can wipe his tears with hundred dollar bills. I don't want to fucking hear about it.

    He and George R.R. Martin can start a club for rich fat little bearded dickheads who are cranky because they aren't loved enough.

    Wry, yet somehow sophisticated.

    well you got a solid point there :happy:

    but in this case I think any person in place of Lucas would be salty and I think he handled it pretty well. If someone would have taken your story and made it great again and everyone would ask you how you like this new movie because it's such a success- you'd be pretty fucking salty. Not saying he doesn't deserve it for making Jar Jar Binks, he deserves this and worse but he is handling it relatively good imo.
