    Battlestar Galactica

    This will interest those who are also fans of Game of Thrones (but didn't like Season 8) I just started re-watching the series, and in between episodes I was researching a little bit on the series and came across this comment by George R. R. Martin. https://grrm.livejournal.com/82239.html

    Is it time to talk about coronavirus?

    I am from PA, and from my understanding, along with multiple attempts, it is nearly impossible to access the online store. There have been articles in the local newspapers about this. https://triblive.com/news/pennsylvania/fine-wine-good-spirits-losing-6-5-million-a-day-considers-online-sales/

    Am I overreacting or should I be this upset with my girlfriend? (long read)

    thevengfulone and willyTass, You do know that this situation happened almost 11 years ago. I'm sure to TreyP this is now considered ancient history.

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Non-Spoilers!

    In regards to Rey, I hope that it turns out that she is truly the "chosen one" as prophesized. It was made to seem that Anakin was the one only to be revealed that he was actually created by Palpatine. And, since the Emperor is coming back I would like to see Rey bringing balance back to the...

    Toy Story 4 (2019)

    I am just speculating based on Tim Allen's and Tom Hank's comments, and I wonder if the ending could involve a death of a human character where a toy will end up being buried with said human? I could imagine some heartfelt emotions of the toys saying their last goodbyes to one another.

    Halloween 2018

    This story seemed somewhat similar to: After I first watched it I was sure what I truly thought of it, but after time to really think about it I was very disappointed. Another comment about Laurie preparing herself: I have a feeling that this installment will not hold up to repeat viewings.

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Non-Spoilers!

    That's a funny statement. My faith in Star Wars was restored after the prequel trilogy, but was completely shattered by Rian Johnson's TLJ that I won't waste my time with the Star Wars universe going forward. I am predicting that Episode IX will be the worst performer of the sagas.

    Future "A Star Wars Story" Spin-off Films Reportedly Put on Hold by Disney/LucasFilm

    I didn't like The Last Jedi and have not seen Solo, not because I wanted to "stick it" to Lucasfilm or Kathleen Kennedy. I have been a fan of the Star Wars universe since I saw the first one in the theater back in 1977. There have been many memories of my youth that somehow translated back to...

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi discussion thread(Warning: Spoilers!)

    I moved this from the Solo thread since it relates more to The Last Jedi. Travis, How long has the First Order been in existence? Are you implying that the First Order rose after Kylo and the Knights of Ren slaughtered the rest of the Jedi trainees? Now, since Luke was basically the last...

    Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)

    Well, for me, TLJ was more than enough to sever ties with the Star Wars universe. I grew up going to the theaters to see the OT when they were first released. I took days off of work to attend the openings of the prequel trilogy. After those, my excitement has lessened. The Force Awaken...

    Avengers: Infinity War -- Spoilers Thread

    I agree with you on this. I can't imagine what the extras on the disc would be like given that they will not want to spoil Avengers 4. Any featurette regarding the making of the movie would be nothing but fluff.

    Wouldn't that suck if the half he decimated would have been the ones to survive the "snap" and the others didn't?

    Avengers: Infinity War -- Spoilers Thread

    I had that same theory posted back on page 7 (in spoilers). In regards to the sacrifice for the soul stone, that is where I think we will see Gamora return.

    Avengers: Infinity War -- Spoilers Thread

    My bet will be Gamora. Other than Nebula, Gamora was the closest to Thanos and has the most hatred towards him. And, with the time travelling aspect to destroy the infinity stones I have a feeling his death will occur around the time Gamora was still a child based on the flashback scenes.

    Avengers: Infinity War -- Spoilers Thread

    Just to clarify, my response was to another post wondering why the people of Wakanda were willing to sacrifice themselves just to save Vision. After reading other articles and the discussions going on here as to what will come next I have a theory as to what will play out in the next Avengers...

    Avengers: Infinity War -- Spoilers Thread

    I only saw the movie once so I may be a little hazy on exact points, but I thought Vision was willing to sacrifice himself only to have T'Challa convincing him to allow his people to remove the stone and save him. Also, at the time the procedure was taking place the armies had not arrived at...

    Avengers: Infinity War -- Spoilers Thread

    I thought this part of the movie was T'Challa's call to save Vision by removing the Mind Stone from him in order to destroy it. I thought the entire battle on Wakanda was to fight (sacrifice themselves) in order to destroy the stone, because if Thanos gets the stone more people, not only in...

    Annihilation (2018)

    I "third" this. I find it very annoying that someone can take the time to post a video, but not put some sort of description as to what the video is about. It does require VERY LITTLE effort.

    Are you good at solving mysteries?

    As the old adage goes, "One person's loss is another person's gain". In my circumstance, my sunglasses were stolen. At a wedding reception no less.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi discussion thread(Warning: Spoilers!)

    This is why I don't want J.J. to do the final episode. Not because he loves repeating stories, rather he is now faced with a difficult task to writing the conclusion of the Skywalker saga. I really wish that Rian Johnson would write and direct Episode IX to see where he would take the story...

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi discussion thread(Warning: Spoilers!)

    I truly hope not. Based on what I have seen in these last two movies, I would not be surprised if the next movie opens with Kylo killing Hux.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi discussion thread(Warning: Spoilers!)

    I can't see that story line being hopeful for J.J. Abrams, especially "the fall of the First Order". Essentially it sounds like a repeat of Return of the Jedi with the "fall of the Empire", but this time without a Sith Lord at the helm. The Last Jedi already gave us "Rey facing off with Kylo...
