If you knew TRoS was another TLJ travesty would you still go or watch the next random movie?

I tell you what, this new version of the theme song in the trailer is just. so. good!!

The Star Wars music has never meant too much to me. I mean, it's iconic as hell but it's never really got me. But this one, wow. This rendition just has so much majesty. A very fitting theme to close out the saga.

Sigh. John Williams using the microwave again. This is the music version of blue milk.

Guillaume is on the money about Crash games being absolute garbage.

I know some people enjoy the series, and personal enjoyment is very subjective so they aren't "wrong"... but the games play like mediocre iPhone games pushed out by amateur devs on a budget crunch. Granted, when the Crash games were released, 3D game design was new and consoles weren't nearly as powerful. Still, that's not enough justification to waste time on them when there were better games available.

That said, I'll give CTR (Crash Team Racing) a bit of slack. It's not great, and people who proclaim it the best racer ever must be looking through some nostalgia-tinted glasses.. but it's a perfectly acceptable Kart game for the time and better than many Mario Kart knock-offs.

Hold off on watching open night or week. That way you know if it is worth going out for it or not. ...

Oh, we won't make it out opening night. But sometime over the holidays, probably after Christmas.

As for being "worth" going to, we almost never go to the theater for movies - the last ones we saw were Mary Poppins and The Last Jedi - so even if the movie bombs critically or with fans, it'll be a worthwhile activity.

Green was such an amazing pick-up for the Lakers. Perfect fit. He won't always score that much, but he'll always impact the game. Weird to see Leonard and Green on different teams though!

Ah well, I guess this is the thanks I get for trying to galvanize the town.

Hopefully Khush isn't mafia, since this is in his hands at this point.

They let John Boyega actually have a hairstyle in this one, so its already a wild improvement over the previous two.

Hold off on watching open night or week. That way you know if it is worth going out for it or not. I would only go to an opening night or even first week if I knew it is a 100% sure thing like John Wick. The only NuSW movie I went to the theatres for was R1 mostly because of friends. Great last 1/3 but yeah, it got issues and it's pretty clear where the reshoots are. The same friends called up for the TLJ opening, I flatly turn them down. If they said we will go to the theatres and pick a random movie that wasn't TLJ I probably would have gone.

Hope is not a strategy. Seeing it out of obligation is not great and if that is it, don't go.

I knew Dark Knight/Rises would be up there, but did not realize how well OG Supes did.
