  1. I will also see it but regarding visuals i expected much more from it. Also because i loved the visuals for BR2049, which increased my expectations for Dune.
  2. I don't know, i was disappointed about the visual aspects. Visually it looks somehow bland and boring, devoid of any colour and wonder. The set design is also far too ancient/stoney looking, like a medieval film. I mean look at that boring library set or the establishing shot of the atreides home base, that looks like a generic medieval castle or even a temple ruin. I really miss a sense of wonder and awe which is something i expect from a science fiction film which takes place in outer space and on different planets.
  3. @InTheCity I guess your interview never was finished and posted anywhere? Well, now that the PoA score got its deserved release we finally have all kinds of interesting background information included in the La-la-land Booklet.
  4. Yes, i used this tracking website, which was faster and more detailled than usps tracking: https://trackitonline.org
  5. My package arrived today. I was among the first few orders and was very lucky that customs procedure went fast. Last year the Jurassic Box arrived in January and was stuck in customs for over 3 weeks. Seems to be a bit of a lottery.
  6. I had packages stuck in custom for over a month. The Jurassic Park Set ordered on the first day arrived in January... so i really hope i have more luck this year.
  7. Fantastic news, really incredible! This made my day. Kudos to all involved, especially to Lalaland, MM and Jason.
  8. Interesting post i read that i want to share here, which shows the stupidness of the whole backstory of the sequel trilogy: The politics of the sequels is so puzzling. First it's so vague and unhelpful for creating context during the movie, then they use books to fill in the details, but the movie has established details that are so dumb that the book explanations end up completely contradictory... Here, follow this 'logic': Q: So why didn't the New Republic want to take on the First Order themselves? Why are the Resistance on their own? A: Well acting directly would destabilize the galaxy and start a shooting war. They were in a Cold War type situation that could easily slip into a conflict that would cost billions of lives. Q: Oh, wow, sounds intense. So the NR must have been stockpiling weapons and constantly monitoring the FO in case the bad guys decided to nuke them or do some Pearl Harbour thing, right? A: No, the NR planets were afraid of the central government turning into a new empire like what happened under Palpatine, so they decided to disarm down to just a defense fleet so the individual planets couldn't be dominated by a single central force. Q: Oh, so I guess they split up the command of the armed forces then? And stationed the ships at different points around the galaxy so that the whole military couldn't go rogue all at once? And the individual planets had their own national guard type forces under their own command? A: Oh no, none of the individual planets had military. And the NR put the whole fleet around the central government planet under central command and- Q: But you just said they were afraid of a dominant central government! A: ...and then the FO Pearl Harbored them. With nukes. And wiped out all the NR's military power. Which was conveniently stationed around the central government. Even though the people didn't want them to have all the military power. Q: ...fuck you.
  9. @Chen G. I just reacted to the insulting post John made towards Mattris. Someone has to, if the majority on this thread seems to not care anymore or even support such a behaviour. And i bow to you Mattris, its a pleasure to read your well thought out and well articulated discussion points and arguments. And all that in the face of massive opposition and even nastiness by some posters in this thread.
  10. i wrote MAY hate... Why must not liking something (even hating something) mean being obsessed? Your question therefore makes no sense to me...
  11. Thats what fans do, they care. John you are here on the JWFan forum, you should know what fans are... Fans become fans because they love something. Of course they also have the right to be extremely disappointed or even hate something... the more you love the more you may hate... Your suggestion seems to stop being a fan and don't give a crap... are you serious?
  12. Not all people are emotionless saints, who never express their disappointment in a more extrovert way. Better leave the forum world if you can't take something like that. If someone looks forward to one theme that for this person was the best theme in this franchise and also the main theme of its main character and this theme doesn't appear at all there is every right to overreact! I mean imagine RotJ dismissing the Imperial March and returning to the Imperial Motif and Death Star motif because the Empire is well represented with two thematic ideas already... wouldn't that also be a reason to overreact
  13. This is absolutely serious. Most Starwars fans i know (me included) think mostly the same like Mattris and are extremely dissapointed after TLJ. But there is this also vocal other side of the fandom who seem to wear their pink Mickey Mouse glasses and consider everything Disney-Lucasfilm does pure gold... to each their own i guess The facts of Starwars in decline speak for themselves!
  14. Mattris is absolutely right in most of his points. What you just posted is not only insulting, it's exactly the thing you criticise. It seems you got no arguments left, you lost the discussion against the excellent points Mattris brought up and now you are like a whiny kid who can't accept that.
  15. Is this a joke, no Newts Main Theme at all??? JNHs best theme in this franchise (which should be the real main theme of the fantastic beasts series) doesnt appear at all... I looked forward to this soundtrack mostly because i wanted to hear this theme again! What a colossal disappointment and failure in thematic planning and development.
  16. Mattris has brought you all the facts and arguments countless of times. Sadly you still wear your pink glasses and fail to see the damage Disney has inflicted on Starwars since the Last Jedi debacle ...
  17. Of course it is. Mattris is right. Starwars at the moment is at an alltime low and in a disastrous state!
  18. Who is we? All the other superficially/easily entertained kids who like the Transformer Movies and don't care, if a movie makes sense or not cause for them the backstory and worldbuilding is just there as an unimportant brainless backdrop? People and especially fans of course do care deeply about that. If the stage is rotten, badly constructed and makes no sense at all no character story line can be taken serious. Opinions like yours justify all the plot hole ridden lazy ass movies Hollywood produces nowadays. And people like you that are that superficially/easily entertained (because the characters are sooooo good) support this low class style of moviemaking. Shame on that!
  19. I agree with a lot of Mattris points (as mentioned in the SOLO thread) and don't get yours at all Demodex... I mean you said a few posts above regarding TLJ that "The story telling was fine to me and everyone I know." Did you all read the novel Bloodline first before watching TLJ because without its shitty explanations on the backstory you have no clue about the real state of the galaxy during the films TFA and TLJ. (the crawls didnt explain a thing, they made it even more confusing) How can the storytelling be fine if you need countless of tie in books (that no casual viewer will ever read) to get any idea whats going on in the galaxy. It of course doesn't help that the explanations on the First Order, Resistance and New Republic are incredibly idiotic and moronic and are easily reaching SW parody level. It also didn't leave a good impression that you avoided all the valid discussion points about the trainwreck of a backstory and worldbuilding of TLJ. So i guess you just don't care for movies going deeper and making sense within itself and more importantly within a franchise of 7 previous films...
