That was a long game. Nice to get home to half a pizza and a screen already set up for viewing.
Expectations seem to be high for this one. Me, I don't know what to expect. I'm just excited. Nothing to skip this time, just straight on through. Here goes nothing!
There are few pleasures in life that can compete with a good hot slice. This is a passable hot slice, but what can you do.
Fanfares. Love 'em.
Space fairytale again. Wasn't it "long long"
YES. Same intro! Thought it might be fifferent this time but I don't ebven care.
We're not capitalizing Death Star anymore now that it's destroyed
The chase is on
Heck of a way to get the top job, Luke.
He's hunting Luke? Oh it's so on. SOLD.
Love this music. Have I said that yet I'm never gonna stop saying it.
You probes better find something quick, because you know about that Vader.
BIG SHIP we're back guys this is happening I'm so in
Opening shots remind me of stuff from the last one
Why didn't I think ofthat? I'm Canadian, I should think of that :P
creepy droid is creepy
and that's a man on a kangaroo
That's LUKE on a kangaroo
And we have Han! Hey Han!
Kangaroos killed: 1
Loving the visuals. Again.
"Don't lose my temper? Have you MET me?"
Looks like I'm on the ball this time. He's going to go deal with Jaba something.
She looks maaaaaaaad
She IS maaaaaaaaad
Highnessness. It hurts to laugh.
OHO THE BANTER IS FUN it hurts to laugh
so they were like
"Why not?" Oh it's good to be back folks
Kangaroos = tontons. Check.
Luke's being a bat.
Is it like a yeti?
Oh hey he's telekinetic now
Hooray for the Force! Now he can die out in the cold.
R2's just got everything in there, doesn't he
Luke, you look like shit. Just putting it out there.
"ALL hope" thank you C3P0. Good emphasis there.
Chewy does not have time for your shit, weather.
is he a ghost?
That makes sense! New teacher! I'm thinking... what... someone with an injury serious enough that they can't go do the job any more, or maybe a cranky recluse. Could be both.
...right when I made this joke the first time it was a JOKE, but
Kangaroos killed = 2
HAHA forget the smells Han
So while they're doing this, thoughts on this new master. I'd like to see somehow a person (or alien) (or awesome alien) who reflects why Ben and himself or herself or itself aren't actively fighting the Empire anymore. Maybe bitter about something? Recluse sounds more and more likely. It would be cool to have a big alien who can teach Luke how to lightsaber with the force, but chances are they cast some actor who would have been recognized and famous back then.
And the gang's all here and is Luke the same guy? He sounded the same but his face looks really differen how long did they take to make this movie
"Who's scruffy looking?" oh it hurts to laugh
TOLD, Han. TOLD HARD. HAHAHA the look on Luke's face.
Han's got no time for your shit, probe
I've heard this before
that's a BIG fleet WHAT SHADOW
HOLY MOTHER OF CRAP IT'S THE DEATH TRIANGLE\
annnnnd Vader's here! Awesome.
Shut up moustache, Vader's got NO TIME FOR YOUR SHIT
why were you right there in his face that seems unwise
Run away, rebels! Run run run
BEAR HUG love it love this movie
where have I heard that music I feel like it was sports.
you're splitting the party? I told you about this.
if I saw that thing heading my way with that music playing I would just give up
VADER THRONE. SOLD. I want five. on my Millennium falcon
Sorcery. Nice. No time for your shit.
...he just promoted that guy while murdering his superior officer didn't he
Oh god what's coming
they're looking like it's coming what's coming
STRESS AND EXCITEMENT
That gun is a breast, I have to WELL GOSH I GUESS IT WORKS. ALL HAIL THE POWER OF BOOB
didn't expect to be writing that today but it happened
holy crap that's a thing it's like a war movie gone mad
SO MANY WALKING TANKS :D
hehehehe mini Vader it's funny
they're going to clothesline them aren't they :D
BOOM down goes the walking tank. Clever!
They just completely broke the Millennium Falcon didn't they
Okay the new soldier masks are seriously creepy. Who authorized this.
Ladies and gentlemen, I think we can safely say the Empire has quite successfully struck back. This is just a rout.
holy cripes those things are huge though
oh don't make her a screaming damsel I am not on baord with that
poor C3P0 HEY IT'S VADER that's his thewme now isn't it. Awesome.
"How typical." It hurts to laugh.
The message of this music is "Vader is now in charge of all of you" and I am on board with this
guys noooo you're splitting the party
hehe Luke's the new C3P0 in the double act
This is the theme of the whole movie, isn't it? SOLD, for the record
HAHAHAHAHA how did they fall for that
oh poop. they're going to get caught THIS IS STIRRING CHASE MUSIC YES
Asteroids? YES YES YES
"never tell me the odds" BADASS AS HELL LOVE YOU HAN
the music just keeps finding new ways to be even better
ocean planet? did I get it?
swamp. less obvious than ice, I think. maybe next time then
and the droid's in the drink. Well done R2. You're supposed to be the smart one.
hehehe I'm loving the comic role though. The tones are so good at conveying nonverbal ideaWHATTHE
oh not this crap again I didn't want it last time
HAHAHAHHAA ahhhhh it hurts to laugh
Vader throne. Still lvoe it whoa okay he's bald and seriously scarred. Do I want to see his face?
I want that throne. You can tell people when you're done with them. It's awesome
.Poor C3P0. Him and Han are not compatible.
MORE BANTER I ENJOY THIS okay it was a little creepy how he phrased it but she did set him right up to make that exact joke
Recluse looks more and more right. I'm a smart cookie.
the hell is that?
hehehe she sounds like Grover from Sesame Park
is this Yoda?
hehehehe owwwww hehe
the laugh is just the funniest goddamn thing
oh now THESE two are the comedy act
so much Grover.
rightr so this is Yoda's helper thing then. Does it annoy people into going away? I can't see that working on Vader; he's consistently established a pattern of no time for anyone's shit. Still it makes a lot of sense that a recluse would hide on a planet like this and have local backup.
Haha Han you're a dick and I love it.
Calling it: that was mutuOH BAD TIMING annnnnd C3P0 doesn't get sarcams
that one just died, didn't he
The Emperor! Interested. Very interested.
Did not see that coming. Guy's old and sounds like a frog.
"But I totally killed that guy! I don't have time for his offspring shit!"
They're going to try to get him addicted to the Dark Force? That's interesting. Corrupt Obi-Wan's student, that would definitely be salt in the wound.
Still loving the laugh.
Yoda's dead, isn't he
they're going to his grave
...oh you bastards I'm going to look like an idiot now why do I fall for these things
...wow, I've got to say that is an incredible puppet. It was the most ridiculous thing and now it looks so... wise. And it's all in the eyes. I'm blown away by how good the work is on that thing.
Alright and Yoda is now the creepy one.
new ship design for bombing! Cool
WHATHT E HELL WAS THAT
NO NO NO we're not doing that
don't like those sounds. Not one bit.
Mynots are now my new least favorite thing.
it's breaking apart!
I AM NOT A COMMITTEE ohh it hurts to laugh
love the music OH AHAHAHA THAT'S COOL
Giant space worm has NO TIME FOR YOUR SHIT
So it's easier to fall into. It's the easy way out. I like it.
Again the puppet is just so... REAL. I'm amazed.
a domain of evil?
well this place is all snakes and badness.
VADER? this is an illusion of some kind. No way he'd have time for this shit.
OH I GET IT THAT WAS THE POINT. I feel smart.
oh are we going to see Jabba now? :D
that one looks cool.
right C3P0 because this is SO much better than that
"It's not fair" I love the matter-of-fact way he says that
I kind of wanted to know those odds actually
WHY DID YOU DUCK WHAT WOULD THAT ACCOMPLISH
bad idea, Captain.
AHAHAHHA the face on Yoda when he fell
I feel like Yoda must be the face of any number of motivational posters for geeks.
I love Yoda. That speech was just great.
Oh here it comes you guys it's on now Yoda powers!!!
The score is just SO DAMN GOOD. What a beautiful shot that was.
YOU TELL HIM YODA
There goes another one.
"Apologu accepted" HAHAHAHHAHAHHA ahhh... ow.
When Vader says admiral he makes it sound like "dead man" OH YOU CHEEKY BASTARD That is awesome.
I smell a new character coming! :D
Sleazy gangster type? Working with Jabba maybe. Can't wait you guys :D
Oh crap they're being followed by the cool one. This bodes ill
The future is pain for Han and Leia. stress
Yoda laying down the law.
Han's facial expressions are just the best thing.
Impressive visuals! :D This all looks new, but it's the good kind of new.
Okay on the one hand it feels like they cast a black man just to claim diversity. On the other hand that's as roguish a moustache as I have ever had the fortune to see and his voice is just pure smooth sex. Opinion of a straight male.
Oh cool it's his ship!
I like Lando.
Man's got a cape he's now the best. That's the rule.
what just happened
I'm with you Chewy. Stress.
Obi-Wan! Welcome back! :D
Listen to them, man, Obi-Wan's been there. Not to mention he fully trained Vader and you're still a rookie.
he's going to do it isn't he? He's going to challenge Vader
Pausing. They just said there's another hope if Luke fails. That means Luke can fail. I'm worried this was deliberate. He can't face the Sorcerer of Strangulation all on his own.
Okay, made a dumb joke, feeling less stress. Back in we go!
There's a theme that's been following these two in a lot of scenes. It's very smooth and light and pretty.
Space kobolds? Factory pigmen? That was kind of weird.
I feel like Lando needs a theme with lots and lots of sax. Sax galore.
OH LOOK IT'S VADER you all lose.
Lando this is exactly why you don't get any saxophone.
This is all Helmet Guy's doing isn't it. Not Vader, other helmet guy.
This film feels a lot more ruthless. I'm starting to feel like not everyone is guaranteed to make it out of this one. :(
the hell is that
This guy's cold as ice. "No good to me dead." So this is Jabba's guy?
You made a deal with the space devil, Lando, you should have known better. You have a cape.
HAHAHHAHA ahh poor C3P0
So that's the game
What is this place it looks awesome
OH NO STRESS :(
I'm going to lose a main character I'm not ready for that yet :(
This place just looks so goddamn amazing though, it's all light and shadow and mist
Vader and his partner are a scary-looking team
...that's what you say? But it fiiiiiits. It fits so well.
This whole thing here is hellish. Black claw, red smoke, stress...
What happened to hiOH THAT DOES NOT LOOK ALRIGHT
He's ALIVE? Nope. No no no. That's just horrible.
Lando, Vader has NO TIME FOR YOUR SHIT.
It just looks SO HORRIBLE. It's like they laminated him with molten steel.
...he's got a PLAN. You clever man.
LOVE THE MUSIC :D
so this is the "it's a trap" joke! I get it now! :D
Oh here it comes
best set ever
no no no he's not ready
Chewy, you'd better make some time for his shit. He did just rescue you
The bounty hunter doesn't get a name. Weird.
HE GOT AWAY? NO
YOU DON'T GET TO DO THAT
Vader's all over this fight. Am I going to lose both I'm not ready for that either
this is incredible
Vader's doing new sorcery
WHAT oh okay
rescue Han already come on guys
SO MUCH STRESS
I need the comedy bits right now. Thank you droids
R2 the Swiss Army Robot. :D
this is the final showdown isn't it
still not ready
oh shit its really happenig
he pushes Vader off or tricks him
Paused. I wanted to walk it off but I can't walk right now. I can't think of anything to say about this.
no I don't believe it. That's a lie. That's how they get you.
oh god his face is like the way I feel I'm just chills and shaking
this is the thing
you can't kill Luke there's still one more movie come on
the Force just gives you a whole lot of powers doesn't it. I'm not complaining if it means no losing Luke.
is Lando a replacement Han did we lose Han
but she loves him and he knows!
No, I say we still have Han.
oh god it's true isn't it
OH THANK GOD I needed to see that sight
Vader's gonna choke someone
well at least he's got a good prosthetic
next movie we'll see the famous Jabba, then
the score is so hopeful and sad at the same time how does someone do that
Wow. Wow. Okay, that's a wrap on this post. Indepth to follow, but not right now. I need to sleep on that. You were all waiting for that, weren't you? I've got nothing. I'm going to bed.
