Star Wars IX The Rise of Skywalker (JJ Abrams 2019) - NO SPOILERS ALLOWED

Recommended Posts

I'm sure Threepio isn't going Terminator.  He's going to be very put-upon, "hold our stuff" at some point - during some task that requires a lot of mobility from those characters - and then he's going to unexpectedly pull the trigger on that bowcaster and save the day, big delightful moment, move on to something else.

Endgame? Nah, just at the end of the movie, with a lot of fan service and in a dull scenario.

 

I really like the climaxes of the first three Avengers, they are appropliately big and fun, and I love the action scenes in Infinity War, specially the battles between superpowered beings: Iron Man, Spider-Man, Wong and Doctor Strange vs Ebony Maw and Cull Obsidian in New York; Scarlet Witch and The Vision vs Proxima Midnight and Corvus Glaive in Edinburgh; and, of course, Avengers and Guardians vs Thanos on Titan. 

 

However, the fight scenes in Endgame disappointed me a little, despite the huge amount of fan service. Not that exciting in my opinion. (that said, I loved Scarlet Witch kicking Thanos' ass).

It's the alleged finale of the Skywalker saga, so probably. JJ being JJ, I can imagine a ROTJ-type of climax, with the non-Force wielder characters involved in some sort of space dogfight, while Rey and Kylo duel with their lightsabers (with the Emperor involved in some capacity). The trailers already showed us a huge fleet of First Order starships.

Geez they must be frantically hitting the render button at ILM right now. Just over two months to go and they're still doing reshoots. 

 

Can only imagine how tight John's score is going to be if they keep changing the edit. I guess he'll just hand it off to Ramiro to fix at some point.

Perhaps a ground forces equivalent of a starfighter squadron leader. A couple of lines at best. Since he already has it in the description that he starred in Star Wars, I suppose he does have "his scene".

 

But you never know with Disney and their marketing. He might even be a random trooper, like Gareth Edwards in TLJ.

I didn't even know he'd been cast in it.  Is it like a glorified cameo?

He'll cameo in the Visual Dictionary!

 

Zak Delvar, Resistance Gunner... or something.

which is why it doesn't do as well overseas.

 

Originally, the brits in Star Wars were always cast as authority figures or villains. Its a kind of shorthand which harkens back to the classic Hollywood (Wyler did it for Ben Hur) and evokes America's struggle for independence from the British Empire.

 

The prequel trilogy necessitated Obi Wan to be a main character, and the sequel trilogy amped that up, casting two brits as the leads. Although its telling that Boyega had to don an American accent. Appearantly, diversity can only exist insofar as it reflects american demographics. Go figure...

The agent’s visitation will be on Sunday evening, with funeral to follow on Monday morning.  The family asks that mourners donate to the charity of their choice in lieu of flowers.

While there, visit the wake of Don Williams.

You're not actually going to see this movie, are you?
