For fuck sakes, it's Star Wars... Although I did see 1,2 and 3, they just didn't become what the first 3 were to me as a kid. So I'm really excited about seeing my favorite characters. And yes that scene "Chewie, we're home" made me very happy. Also the Darth Vader mask was cool. And I have a thing for Adam Driver (Adam on Girls), so he could be the new suave sexy character.
ES, I'm so jealous!!

matz is very hard to please.

seeing old man solo didn't do anything for you? chewy looks like he hasn't aged at all. they should of given him some grey hair or something.



Wookiees live to over 400 years old so he may not have aged that much - from a Wookiee perspective...

That was a rad trailer, can't wait for these new flicks...

How about that crashed Star Destroyer, Vader's helmet rescued from the funeral pyre, all those stormtroopers, that black armored stormtrooper or tie pilot? FUCK. YES. ( god i hope it doesn't suck )....

ok it does look pretty cool actually, looking forward to it. seems like they've abandoned using a ton of blue screen, that's one major thing I hate about 1, 2 and 3

Selling toys has it perks...they haven't put anything out for the new film yet, but I will have something of an inside track on new merch in the fall... :cool:

I'm keeping my expectations low...they're likely going to do as good a job of reviving this franchise as they did with Star Trek which I think they managed to pull off pretty well...I think people need to take into perspective that we're now spoiled for Star Wars as we've lived for decades with everything that Star Wars has influenced since the 70's...it will naturally impress a lot less because we're older and what was magical in terms of effects back then is now the norm...thanks of course to the original trilogy. Let's just hope the story is a good one...I think the nostalgia will help but they've got a spotless playing field to play with...let's wait and see...

Out of consideration for some who may be offended by explicit photos of boobs n' weiners I won't post the actual movie poster here, but this link to the upcoming (heh) film "Love" has probably the naughtiest image on a mainstream film ad in history:

Cool. This is the type of pseudo-controversy or only-for-showck-value-thing that I enjoy.

Watched Mortdecai with my folks last night. Very silly and funny movie. Really needed to laugh my ass off and this was perfect.

Before the movie they showed a trailer with Nicholas Cage (he looks like a samurai or some shit like that, the guy who played Anakin is in it too, it looks pretty shitty). Wonder how many shitty movies does he still have to make until he pays off his debt taxes?

Avengers: The Age of Ultron might be the best superhero movie I have ever seen. Very entertaining, the choreographies were great and the story quite compelling (within the fantasy world of superheroes, obviously.) Scarlett is delicious and The Hulk... oh, The Hulk. I feel something so special for that character.

Anyway, go watch it. 7/10.

veep is easily the funniest series on right now. this is the best season so far.

the second season of silicon valley is funnier than the first.

another series that started off not so great but turned out pretty good is the last man on earth. anyone else watching it? the season finale is tonight.

those are my thoughts on current comedy series on tv right now. you're welcome.

- I've never seen Veep but will give it a try.
-Agree about Silicon Valley so far this season
-I gave up on Last Man on Earth after two episodes.

Not comedy, but I think American Crime is an excellent show. It's on Thursday nights on ABC, twp episodes left.

Watched Black Hat w/Chris Hemsworth over the weekend. Michael Mann films the best looking action movies in the industry but this one seemed like it was about half an hour too long.

I haven't tried veep yet, but I did watch the rest of the season for Last Man in Earth. You were right it does get better. Once Todd the "fat guy" came along it got way better I thought. Overall, I did enjoy it. I'll check out the second season if it gets picked up.

There's a new show I just started watching today- Scrotal Recall. A British sitcom on Netflix...only 6 episodes.


http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/201 ... ounds.html

When Scrotal Recall first showed up on Netflix this month, I wondered if it was a joke. When Netflix’s algorithm suggested that I would give it five stars, I marveled at how poorly the technology understood my impeccable taste. But then I finally watched the show. Though burdened with a terrible name, the six-episode British comedy is delightful: a funny, tenderhearted, and clever take on the friendship sitcom.

In the tradition of High Fidelity, Scrotal Recall, which first aired in the fall on the British station Channel 4, follows a shaggy-haired lad revisiting his past loves. But Dylan (Johnny Flynn) isn’t just on a quest to figure out where he went wrong. He’s tracking down his former lovers so he can tell them that he recently tested positive for chlamydia. (It’s the perfect STD to carry the story: Chlamydia is treatable, and people often don’t experience any symptoms. But those exposed do need to be alerted, because it can lead to infertility.) For his trip down sexual-memory lane, Dylan is accompanied by his two best friends, Evie (Antonia Thomas) and Luke (Daniel Ings).

Scrotal Recall is the dry British cousin of Happy Endings. Or maybe it’s How I Met Your Mother without the slather of CBS Velveeta that sometimes made HIMYM cringe-worthy. Its timeline hops between past and present. It contains some pithy observations about life as a single young adult—in one episode, for instance, Luke drags Dylan and Evie to a far-away gathering so he can try to bed a high-school crush. When the two fail to click with the rest of the attendees, the smart and endearingly sardonic Evie complains, “We’re at a party that doesn’t like us.” It’s a perfect description of a feeling that I, at least, know well: realizing at the beginning of a social event that you just don’t gel with anyone there. Luke is a Barney-esque pick-up artist, but his caddishness is dialed down just enough to make him seem vulnerable rather than venal. And Dylan, though he has an extensive list of ladies to alert about his STD, longs for true love. He and Evie are in a bit of a will-they-or-won’t-they situation, but the story line feels natural—perhaps because the short British season doesn’t drag anything out unnecessarily.

It’s also refreshing to see a show that handles an STD in a frank way, even if it does gloss over the long-term effects of chlamydia a bit. Dylan is embarrassed to call his old lovers to let them know, but he does the right thing—albeit occasionally at the wrong time.
