    The new tie-in novel is presumably the source:

    Star Trek: Picard

    This was my least favourite episode so far. They get into space in episode 3 and then everything kind of stops in order for Romulan Legolas to be introduced. It wasn't bad by any means, I just felt that after 3 episodes to establish the show, I was ready for it to really get going, as it were...

    Survivor S40: Winners at War

    There was a lot of skepticism over this season with EoE being back and the fire tokens, but based on a single episode, I'm loving it so far. It's fascinating how a one-off comment made in jest (I assume) at a poker tournament carries so much weight. But hey, smart game play. Use any tool at...

    Will these prices ever cap out?

    I could buy that, especially in California. Annual passes are arguably under-priced, and are a major cause of crowd levels. Meanwhile, tourists pay a small fortune to stand in long lines with people paying dollars per visit. In an ideal world, the average price could be somewhere between what...

    Will these prices ever cap out?

    This notion of Disney turning into something "only for the rich" is something that has been said for as long as I can remember. Heck, it probably started a week after Disneyland first opened. The demand is clearly there. What do people who complain about prices suggest? That prices be lowered...

    Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker Reactions: SPOILERS

    The Trevorrow script as leaked didn't strike me as exciting. Doesn't offer any interesting story beats that I can see, just a fairly straight forward conclusion. It does make sense to have ghost Luke confront Kylo though, something Luke said he would do in TLJ, but that plot point wasn't picked...

    Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker Reactions: SPOILERS

    Here's a couple of questions about "Rise of Skywalker". For anyone who has forgotten, that was the movie this thread was actually created to discuss. When the Emperor restores himself via Rey and Kylo, he appears as he did in Revenge of the Sith. Does that mean this is his true form? Was his...

    Fun fact: 20% of Starfleet's budget is used to change the uniforms every few years.

    Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker Reactions: SPOILERS

    Definitely. There's a very loud contingent who are upset when franchises are rebooted with females or steps are taken to make them more diverse. People will scream at the notion of James Bond being black, for example, but don't understand that popular culture has been so dominated by white males...

    Let me guess, you're one of those people who hated the new Ghostbusters with a fiery passion before even seeing it.

    Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker Reactions: SPOILERS

    Right, where does it end when everyone has input into a movie? This goes back to this impossible notion of being able to please everyone. We've all got opinions on what we would have done differently, but my perfect ending to this trilogy would have been hated by some people. Many people...

    If you truly think differing opinions on a movie constitute trolling, then you are lost.

    Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker Reactions: SPOILERS

    Nobody "plans" for a movie to be divisive. Making a movie that everyone likes is this mythical idea that just isn't as easy as some people think. As I've said, the more fans clamour for crowd pleasing Star Wars films, the more likely we'll get safe movies like The Force Awakens.
