There are a lot of rumors floating around that that trilogy has been axed.

The trilogy by the GOT duo has been axed, but not Johnson's that I'm aware of.

They won't announce it. It will just fade quietly away. Like Bob Iger's presidential ambitions.

If we want to prevent catastrophic economic and societal change we will have to radically change our climate system.

:D to be fair nobody thinks this is the last stat wars film. The franchise will be milked until we will vomit at the mere mention of Star Wars.

"Woke" is now almost exclusively used by those who seek to deride it, those who chafe at the activism from which it sprang. Opponents to the idea are seeking to render it toxic. They use it to stand in for change itself, for evolution, for an accurate assessment of history and society that makes them uncomfortable and deflates their hagiographic view of American history.

The Rise of Skywalker 10/10

Back on track and a worthy ending. There are so many great scenes in this one and a few ridiculous ones but the right kind of ridiculous not the Canto Bight kind.

That is a very good score.  :hmm:
The medievals were only too right in taking nolo episcopari as the best reason a man could give to others for making him a bishop. Give me a king whose chief interest in life is stamps, railways, or race-horses; and who has the power to sack his Vizier (or whatever you care to call him) if he does not like the cut of his trousers.

Government is an abstract noun meaning the art and process of governing and it should be an offence to write it with a capital G or so as to refer to people.

George Lucas wasn't invited to the premiere yesterday.  :ph34r:

The early media reviews are in and, uh, it's not looking good folks.

So 10/10 might be too high a score, but 57% is definitely too low.

To be fair, RT's metric is simply a measure of if critics liked a movie or not, not ordinal in the sense of grades. So a number around 50 or so means that the critics are pretty divided.

So to try and avoid spoilers I haven't even read any reviews, but I've seen headlines and thumbnails.

Half say it's flawed but fun.  Half say it's terrible.  Lots of mention about fanservice.

My son (6) just finish watching Episode 5. He wasn't flabbergasted at the reveal of Vador fatherhood. He says he didn't know but I'm guessing since he's watch all of Rebels, atleast half of Clone Wars & watches Resistance, it's just part of his cultural zeitgeist.

I honestly can't remember what effect the reveal had on me, I was 5-6 when I first watched it. I should ask my mom if she remembers.
