I don't watch horror movies, but I might have to check this one out:

Isn't that a two-parter?

Also, I'm going to have to (tentatively) side with The Amazing Atheist on this one.  It looks like a fairly generic jumpscarefest rather than the get-under-your-skin nature of the original.  It all rides on the quality of acting of whoever plays IT, and all we've seen from him so far is a dopey grin and a fastrun headshake jumpscare.

I rate the Tim Curry version very highly, and I'm mildly annoyed that they even tried to remake that classic.  It'll take a masterpiece to win me over.

Check out "Shin Gojira", due to be released on video in the US Apr. 9th. They're wanting $57 for a DVD on Amazon. $98 for "deluxe blu-ray set."

December...



To me, it looks like there is potential for a little deeper exploration of the Force, in this one.

I intend to enjoy it...

I think Luke is saying the Jedi have had their run and a new order (not NEW ORDER) should replace them. Given their total lack of vision with regard to Palpatine I think the old order is over the hill.

Yeah, I think "the last jedi" refers to Luke being the last of the jedi order and Rey is going to be a part of something new.  Imo, neither one of them are going to buy the farm in this movie.

Everyone has their own pet theory about the title - including thinking that they're both the last jedi since the plural of jedi is jedi - but my theory is that the age of the jedi will draw to a close but some sort of organization of good-aligned force users will continue.  I know that on the surface, that sounds like the same thing, but the jedi are a monastic order with political ties to the Republic and some pretty rigid (and stupid) rules, so this may be a very important change.

My vote is for "Firster Order".

Maybe she will be the balance...Dialectical Star Wars...Jedi are the thesis, Sith are the antithesis...Rey could become the synthesis.
