Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi
« on: 23 January, 2017, 04:29:12 pm »
And so we have a an official title.  It's another very safe broad-recognition choice from Disney, not for them Menaces or Clones, and it seems a bit unfortunate to use 'Jedi' a second time, forcing even non-nerds to use annoying acronyms in future discussions.  I certainly don't hate it, but hopefully this lack of imagination doesn't extend to the film itself. 

Anyone going to give me odds on Episode 9 simply being 'The Dark Side'?

The Last anything has a fairly good track record:

The Last Boy Scout
The Last King of Scotland
The Last Samurai
The Last of the Mohicans
...

These films and others are fairly well rated, so perhaps there is hope.

Another movie as averse to effort as TFA I can do without.  Anthology and fan movies only for me from now on.

and here I had a fiver on "The Midichlorians Ascend"

I suppose it might not be a direct ref to Luke?

There is another!
Hmm, just pretend I wrote something witty eh?

Leia doesn't count as a Jedi because she's a girl.  Nor Ray, either, so the title is clearly a reference to Luke.

Bugger!  Now you've got me thinking of the next Star Wars film as a reboot of Last of The Summer Wine.

Now that would be a mashup and a half!

Are we actually going to start making judgements on a movie based on nothing but the title?

Of course we are!

I love it, I think it's brilliant and I can't wait to buy all the merchandise...

Ep 9 is "The Balance of the Force", and deals with Luke being both light and dark like a ninja. So says me, to anyonw who will listen. Plus it follows the nomenclature of the last two trilogies.

Dear Grud now I'm picturing Luke as Cleggy, Han as Foggy, Chewbakka as Compo and Leia as Nora Batty!

I was actually thinking about it the other way round!  Cleggy as Luke, Nora Batty as Leia ....   ::)

Nora Batty in a gold bikini. There's an image that you won't soon forget.
