Star Wars: Episode VIII (2017) Pre-Release Discussion - Page 44
In terms of not giving a flying pig fuck about advancing anything but their financial portfolio and pleasing shareholders didn't they have the BALLS to kill every Rogue One hero, reducing potential revenues from both future films and merchandising featuring the Rogue One gang or nah?
My friend, when you make over $10 billion a year in merchandise (JUST merchandise), what are you giving up exactly? I'll say this one last fucking time, because you're starting to get on my nerves and becoming as bad as fleed and Barry... any potential future R1 sales will be replaced by another spin off. New characters they don't have to kill off, in addition to the billions they already make from everything else. So no, they don't give flying pig fuck about anything but money since they make mountains of it and don't funnel it back into the industry like Lucas did.
I'm (and I'm assuming Bucho too) talking about Disney.
It's also not like you wont be able to buy R1 action figures, t-shirts and other merch for years to come. Old SW movies merch still sells by the truckload. And the merch has always made way WAY more than the movies. They also have the opportunity to do prequels about those characters in movie, cartoon or book form. They are not losing anything.
So they can send them off on morose, joyless adventures that they know can never really happen because the characters are already dead?
The main point is that LA LA LAND is the greatest movie of the 21st century and that it should be turned into a religion, with Gosling being the new Jesus.
So they can recreate the personality suppressing horrors of war from the comfort of their own bedrooms...
Oh. So you haven't seen it like you claimed before?
How Machiavellian of you, trying to toy with my emotions! YOU FAIL!
I have, but the trump wording of the joke required certain liberties.
Don't let this Award season fawning over LA LA LAND sour the movie for you. It's a trap you must avoid at all costs!
Except I felt something purely delightful watching LA LA LAND whereas with ROGUE ONE I kept wondering if I've lost the capacity to be moved by a film at all. A dreadful experience.
Never saw THE ARTIST though.
Go back to making things like WHIPLASH!!!
(makes something like WHIPLASH)
YOU HACK!!!! Whatever happened to grand works like GRAND PIANO???
(but I only wrote Grand Piano...)
OH SO YOU'RE TOO GOOD FOR WRITING NOW???
Can someone catch me up on this? I thought Chazelle was supposed to be the next big studio franchise director in training. Haven't seen Pretty White People The Movie yet.
That said, I'm not looking forward to seeing this guy's face in thread after thread for the next few years.

Can making a blase dismissal of a story by noting the protagonists are white die in 2017?
maybe that's why he tried out the puppet thing!
