    Because the labels have been going through his work from both ends of the alphabet. Now they're all gonna meet in the middle!

    I mean, how long have people been waiting for Conan the Destroyer? How long did they wait for The Ten Commandments? From the time MV first hinted that Harry Potter was "close" to the time of its actual release was 5 years. That's a long time, sure, but it doesn't seem terribly unusual anymore, well, not to me anyway.

    You did it!  You found a reason for me to be excited about Howard the Duck!

    I saw Return of the Jedi first. I also saw the second Ewok movie before all the other movies. I just assumed the Ewoks were in all of them.

    Beyond is fun! It find a good balance between Trekishness as exemplified by the original show (you know, explore and get along) and exciting blockbuster action movie. The characters are likable and had great interaction. There are a few Trek-film clichés I don’t like (villain out for revenge, doomsday weapon, Enterprise gets destroyed) and which are not even handled particularly well for what they are. However, overall it is enjoyable and has heart; it doesn’t feel like the previous two, which were trying a little too hard to reinvent what Trek was. It was more restrained in scope. But, to be fair, Star Trek 2009’s Star Wars-like visual and storytelling excess also makes it much more stark and memorable. The biggest and coolest new plot element that Beyond had was that they discovered an old ship, the Franklin, which had crashed on the planet, and were able to get her flying again. In the end, they get the Enterprise-A, which has a much nicer design than the 2009 Enterprise they’d been using, i think.

    No, you both have it wrong!  John whistles the scores to a massive team of ghostwriters who go wherever he goes, always at the ready to transcribe whatever comes into his mind!

    True, but I also don't care for it when people start sucking a movie's rod. Not only for blowing the film's praiseworthy elements out of proportion, but for implying that those who dislike it are either missing the wit to percieve its genius, or are misogynists who disapprove of the film's egalitarian undercurrent.
     
    There's plenty wrong in The Last Jedi.

    Too many people stuck in the past and still bitching about this film even 2 years later which is sad.  I mean seriously it's just a movie people.
     
    Also for those that hate (or dislike) this movie and expect everyone else to (and even insult others who don't comply) well to me you stopped being a "fan" when you insist on that.  For those who also say "this film ruined my childhood!" oh my lord grow the fuck up you're supposed to be adults it's just a damn movie.
     
    It's just so sad to see so many "fans" bitching about this movie to this day even as far as going after the actors / actresses and harassing them.  That is NOT cool at all and another reason to me that you're no longer a "fan" when you do that.

    By the way I for one enjoyed both the film and the score.

    This is complete BS. Both films have problems, yet both films have their strengths. MoS has too much destruction porn and the shallowest romance I've ever seen in a superhero movie, but the action is good and the tone was different enough for Superman to be interesting for that outing. The infamous "Martha" scene at the end of BvS deserves the hate it gets, but the first 90 minutes of that movie, at least in its extended form, is perfectly acceptable Batman.

    You mean like the CRs coming out a couple years after the movies were done, that sold well enough that they got reprinted 10 years later when even the Hobbit hype died down already?
