​How long has it been since you saw Prometheus though?

​Because as prequels go Rogue One is fucking Citizen Cane or The Godfather to Prometheus' Jaws: The Revenge or Death Wish 5.

Hell, there may even be some people here who find the idea of spending an untold amount of money and time watching these movies to be terribly unappealing. 


​Since you bring it up, I still haven't actually seen Avatar. I have only watched it for periods of time when I have seen it playing in stores or something, but I feel like Avatar is a movie a whole lot of people have avoided seeing out of spite.

I'd rather watch brometheus than rogue one

As messy as PROMETHEUS is, it's a more interesting watch than the yawner ROGUE ONE.

MichaelM tried to get me to watch it on TV today. Was busy with Hell or High Water.

MM secretly loves Prometheus.

I don't think any of you have actually watched Prometheus recently, because I just did last night and it is literally the dumbest fucking movie with it's budget cast and the quality of it's production team I have ever seen or heard of. There is nothing interesting going on. The entire movie takes place because an archaelogist who seems like she graduated from the Eric Von Daniken school of people who terminally fall for con artists  has a hunch and it's characters and plot are so utterly inane it's barely tv movie quality. It's dumber and worse in every way to The Phantom Menace.

I knew it was dumb when I saw it in theaters.  And have talked about how dumb and silly it was several times since then.

 

Still... will watch over rogue one

 

(if we're talking about watching a movie in its totality... since I could see myself watching the final battle in rogue one)

post #611 of 643

In all fairness, Rogue One isn't exactly the kind of film I would want to revisit over and over again. But Prometheus is a film I wish I never saw.

​I mean seriously, Midichlorians were a pretty dumb retcon right? Well check out Prometheus retconning truly giant (like 5 times the of height of a human) Space Jockeys into rather large but still human sized aliens that are very human, and it evaporated all the mystery of who the Space Jockeys were right in the first 5 minutes of the movie! That's really really awful.

​Then here comes Rogue One retconning the Death Star's flaw as an intended design by it's maker and it's actually pretty genius.

yea, but the continuity of the Alien movies has never been of much concern to me...  nor has the death star's fatal flaw ever been something that bugged me

post #613 of 643
Prometheus and Star Wars are both set in outer space. That's the only reason I can imagine why this conversation is happening right now.

​I'm totally with you on both accounts. The continuity did not bother me and was always kind of whonky and that was fine for me, until it was Ridley Scott himself who never liked what they did with Alien sequels setting out to set it all straight, and then shitting in his own bed so to speak.

​The Death Star's fatal flaw also never an issue, I think that's the point. There were no issues. Just a prequel we didn't ask for that was head and shoulders above ones that were kind of in somewhat high demand.

Anyhoo, I think a lot of you guys are conflicted because after 15 years of being verbally abused, your old buddy George decided he didn't want to play anymore. Now you have a new buddy whose name is Disney and he has all of George's old toys and a few new ones to boot, but it just isn't the same for you.

So sad....

No, for that I'd have to hate myself even more than I do the soulless corporate sausage factory, and that just ain't happening.

Also, saying that a movie is better than Prometheus is pretty hilarious. If it weren't for the existence of Z-grade schlock like Al Adamson's Dracula vs. Frankenstein, you could almost argue that any movie that isn't Prometheus would by definition have to be. Even then...hell, I'd honestly rather sit through Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny than subject myself to Damon Lindelof's godawful fanfic.

Well, I wasn't really trying to draw a serious comparison there, I only brought it up because Bart refuses to see Rogue One but genuinely loves Prometheus.

​Personally I'm still on the fence about Han Solo, not excited for this at all, but I'm not writing it off entirely unless I see something substantial that really makes it clear it's total shit. Because it could just be a good fun time at the movies. I don't need anything more than that out of this.

According to Iger, Han Solo is apparently an alias. We'll learn how he got his name in this movie. This is not a joke.

I figured his name will be Han Teemplare and we learn he used to be a real people-person. Then he learns some Hard Lessons and is betrayed by someone he cares about. And in the final scene he says "I don't need you! I don't need anybody. I'm going Solo."

"Han Group, I'll find you wherever you hide amongst the stars!"

"Not if I change my name to something you'll never suspect!"

 

Seriously, though: I hate this idea. It's one of those dumb "Let's add some unnecessary mythology for our prequel!" ideas that people writing dumb prequels seem to come up with.

Oh yes. This is terrible.

He slides out of a vagina....his mom names him Han Solo.

Boom.

$1 trillion at the BO.


But seriously....this alternately doesn't surprise me and doesn't piss me off. It's whatever. After what the prequels did to Vader, this is small potatoes. Especially if the new actor (I could look up how to spell his name I guess.....COULD being the operative word) gives a performance that works for us and the movie is entertaining. I mean...look at what Ewan McGregor was able to do with Obi-Wan in BAD movies. They'd be fools to not take a page from Carpenter and make Solo like a slightly more competent Jack Burton ("I'm just in this to get my ship back, darlin')..

Fraid! Don't let Hollywood keep treating you like this!!!!

 

Stop being such a nice guy!

 

Get angry!

Fucking

 

Boycott

post #643 of 643

Good guess but I doubt that'll be his real name, although it would certainly explain why he's using an alias.
