    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    A while ago, I had this recurring dream that new Star Wars movies were coming out, but because of Reasons, I just somehow couldn't get out to see them! Obviously, these were Anxiety dreams, not quite approaching the intensity of nightmares, but still mildly annoying. Now that new SW movies actually ARE coming out, I curiously don't feel any need to rush out and see them, so maybe that's progress?

    Still, a friend convinced me to buy my ticket online so that I can see it with a group of friends, which I enjoy doing. Tomorrows' the day! After watching so many speculation videos on Youtube, it's almost unbelievable that by this time tomorrow I'll finally know the truth of it all...

    Anyone else going to see this soon? What are you expecting/hoping/dreading?

    Yama, from Zelazny's Lord of Light. Minor spoilers, unfortunately.

    Thanks so much everyone, love the quote TheCountAlucard. Saw a video where someone dropped an EMP in front of him and wondering if he would just flatline right there, he wasn't really in good looking shape when we see him without his costume. But figured the Force might help him get to someplace he could receive medical attention.

    In the old extended universe, he would die eventually. But we're talking many hours, possibly even days depending on the environment and what he's doing and of course since he's Darth Freaking Vader he'd probably have a fair amount of plot immunity.

    I believe so, as he needs them for respiration. That said, we have seen him partially out of his armor on multiple occasions, so my assumption would be that the chest piece is the only essential component.

    Thanks again for posting this. I finally watched and really liked it. He made a lot of great points...

    Thanks! I'll check it out.

    My two favorite Star Wars channels, Star Wars Explained and Hello Greedo, both some retrospectives that I thought were really good. Of course, Patrick (H) Willems did a really good TLJ video a few months back I liked as well.

    People always gotta ruin things, and now it's part of someone's job. I'm not even a big Star Wars fan and find that despicable.

    Some of the hatedom YTers were running with this as absolute fact, and smugly declaring that they'll hear about Kennedy's resignation any day now, that it was victory for the "true fans".
    I'm always amused by the YouTube Star Wars haters. They act like they're the end all be all of Star Wars fans and what they say will have any sway over the execs at Disney. lol.

Pretty much all them with the exception of Solo made a shit ton of money. So as long as that continues her job is safe because that's just how capitalism works.
