  1. "We represent the Lollipop Guild, the Lollipop Guild, the Lollipop Guild And in the name of the Lollipop Guild, We wish to welcome you to Muchkinland!" And they will snipe at each other. 😄
  2. It may be best not to overthink Star Wars... 😄
  3. "A good question, for another time." 😂
  4. For those who don't know the story... https://melmagazine.com/en-us/story/oral-history-star-wars-c3po-penis-error-card
  5. You'll more likely stop in boredom and fall asleep in your armchair.
  6. We knew the outcome of 'Rogue One' going in, and knew the Death Star plans would get into rebel hands, but the stakes still felt high and I was riveted right until that poor guy passed them through the door before getting impaled by Vader. I think it's all in the execution of the story. The Force Awakens felt like a slick, fandangled remake of A New Hope with yet another Death Star-type threat...and I guess J.J. didn't succeed in making me feel any sense of urgency or dread, cuz I just watched passively as the Resistance blew it up. Been there, seen that. And it was done much better in A New Hope and Return of the Jedi. I still feel the excitement of the final trench run, and the attack on Death Star II's superstructure, with the Falcon barely escaping incineration. It still has me cheering like these two...
  7. Final Conflict. An example of a great score from a so-so movie.
  8. Here in Canada there's a channel called "Showcase" that runs a Star Wars marathon a couple times a year, and I usually end up watching the OT and Rogue One. The others I'll leave on in the background while getting work done, which summarizes how I feel about them. Like Ollie, I still enjoy some of the Star Wars merch, but I'm not waiting with bated breath for the next movie like I used to.
  9. Let us know too which score got edged out and landed in the 11th spot.
  10. I have the manuscripts... I keep them inside the Ark of the Covenant, next to my caged dodo bird, "Carlos".
  11. Luke would later infamously reject his Oscar—joining a list including actors George C. Scott and Marlon Brando, and screenwriter Dudley Nichols.
  12. And what's great about the Lifetime Achievement Oscar is there's a spot where you can attach your small Oscar...
  13. So your memories of Indiana Jones are unsullied by 'Dial of Destiny'? How I envy you! I would've preferred living with just the slight tarnish of 'Crystal Skull'...
  14. "I keep mine in the bathroom, where I do my best thinking."
  15. Yes, and it can be bruising to a composer's ego, as Williams has said!
