  1. I just keep enjoying the old stuff I like, and don’t expect to get into any of the new stuff. Not sure if that means I am or am not on board with the franchise. Probably mostly not. I’d buy a nice blu-ray set of the unaltered OT. I’d buy deluxe editions of the Thrawn and X-Wing books from the 90s, or the Han Solo books from the 70s. Soundtracks, obviously. But as for getting into the new stories, nah, can’t really think of anything that would interest me. Maybe something with Mark Hamill set pre-TLJ?
  2. This has been “temporarily out of stock” for a very long time. :/
  3. It’s like saying, “Do you have a reason for not reading War and Peace?”
  4. Well, and Donna’s storyline REALLY crashes and burns in Season 2. I loved Lara Flynn Boyle in the beginning, but I thought the recast for FWWM actually worked kind of perfectly, and I didn’t miss Donna in Season 3. It’s funny because in the show Donna and Audrey are clearly competing for leading lady status, only to have Heather Graham swoop in and literally take the crown.
  5. Tough one. #1: Season 1 and first half of Season 2. Obviously the most lovable and balanced and Twin Peaksy Twin Peaks. No downsides. #2: Season 2 Finale, FWWM, and Season 3. Unrestrained Lynchian brilliance, least jokey and most artsy. #3: Second half of Season 2. Almost hate to rank it dead last because it is still a delight to watch Shelly and Major Briggs and all our friends. But it’s disposable.
  6. Season 1-2 Fire Walk With Me The Missing Pieces Season 3 HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooo!
  7. Just finished watching Twin Peaks. Great fun!
  8. I’m sure Disney has an army of analysts to determine the most profitable amount of Rapunzels vs. Snow Whites to feature in their parks. How inclusive or insensitive is Moana this quarter? That’s what we’re talking about.
  9. Chen, I hope you read The Thrawn Trilogy someday. I think you would like it. I think if you like the original serial (rather than saga) concept of the original film, you’ll find great enjoyment in returning to the idea that Luke Skywalker, having achieved the rank of Jedi Knight, continues to have swashbuckling adventure across the galaxy. It shows you don’t always have to top the stakes of the previous story. Indeed, I’m sure you can find many such counterexamples. After The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe you can have more intensely personal stories like The Silver Chair. After Arthur’s wa
  10. The existence of a Sequel Trilogy does not ipso facto nullify the RotJ ending. Cf. The Thrawn Trilogy.

  12. We let our kids watch The Ewok Adventure when they are too small to watch Star Wars. We watch it with them and enjoy the crap out of it. The Battle for Endor is a lot more serious but also a lot less fun.
  13. My watching order: - The Ewok Adventure - The Battle for Endor - Star Wars (4K77) - The Empire Strikes Back (Harmy’s) - “The Carbonite Caper” (first 30 min. of RotJ (Harmy’s) - Return of the Jedi (remainder) (Harmy’s) - The Force Awakens
  14. The Force Awakens Solo The Rise of Skywalker Rogue One The Last Jedi
  15. Best get it over with, and just rename this thread to Star Trek Disenchantment.
  16. My wife and I just finished watching Seasons 1-2. A show so amazing it doesn’t care if I think it’s amazing.
  17. That hadn’t occurred to me. Yes, if they can get Denis Lawson, that would be a great reason to set it in the post-TRoS present.
  18. I would assume it is inspired the X-Wing novel series. A few of those were about Wraith Squadron, but most of them were about Rogue Squadron. Rogue Squadron was the title of the first book. Those books are pretty highly regarded, as are the X-Wing and TIE Fighter games upon which they were based. Where have you seen that? I doubt that is the case. I’ll bet Rogue Squadron is set in the same time period as The Mandalorian (and Ahsoka and Rangers of the New Republic), and they all culminate in a big crossover event (the Thrawn Crisis, I’d guess).
  19. Are they crazy? I thought they learned their lesson with the last round. You need a coherent creative voice, and you can’t create a glut of material or people tune out. Sad.
  20. I would hope the new material recorded in 1997 (Victory Celebration, etc.) would not be in the main programme; that should be the 1983 score. Re: Beauty and the Beast, can you explain? The presentation I have always heard has all the songs first and then all the instrumental cues.
  21. I guess it depends on which movies you’ve seen. And even then, there are some movies you guys have mentioned which I have seen but can’t for the life of me remember the theme. The only ones mentioned in this thread that I could immediately call to memory are: James Bond Gone with the Wind (Tara) The Lord of the Rings (Fellowship + Shire) Star Trek TMP (but for the longest time I associated it with TNG) Mission Impossible - but that’s from TV Sleeping Beauty - but that‘s from ballet - and DIsney songified it Other Disney themes? Most are songs, but no
