iron de havilland: In The Crying Game, one of the characters had a penis.I forget which one.
iron de havilland: Barry Hines' classic novel A Kestrel for a Knave was adapted to film by Ken Loach as Kes. The novel's title refers to the historical practice of certain raptors being allowed only to certain classes of society.The kestrel dies at the end.
Sid_6.7: The plot of the original movie is hilariously unoriginal. The reason is worked is because it had a perfect blend of just enough novelty in concepts, excellent chemistry with the cast, and a brilliant score, combined with lesser amounts of awesome in terms of dialogue, effects, design, and so on. It was like any other space opera serial, except it did everything right, and happened to be a full-length movie, instead of a series of 22 min. radio shows.I loved Rogue One, but Episode VII was crap. Almost pure garbage with the exception of how the leads performed.The plot? Episode IV but "BIGGER" and "COOLER". The villain? Pfft. The plot twist? Oh, wait, there wasn't one. Killing Han? Who didn't see it a mile away?They had a chance to do something awesome and original and unexpected, but they didn't. If they wanted to impress us, then we should have seen something like Kylo watching Han get killed by stormtroopers, and then deciding "Screw this, I'm going back to the light." Instead we saw Han die for basically no reason, and everyone acts like f*cking caricatures, just going through the motions of what they would obviously do based on what we already knew about them.And then R2 suddenly and conveniently awakens to provide Luke's location. What a load of contrived, deus ex machina horsesh*t.And I swear Abrams was screwing with the genuine fans on purpose, going out of his way to. Perfect example? Han using a bowcaster. It f*cked with the real fans and added nothing to the plot.I keep trying to think back to things I liked about Ep. VII, but every single time I think I've thought of something I realize it's actually from Rogue One.
Mugato: Hey a Star Wars thread, time for everyone to take time out of their busy schedule to shiat on it. Right on schedule. You know it's been 18 years since Jar Jar's had any more than five lines? Isn't there a statute of limitations on this shiat?Anyway, having Luke being the bad guy would be a big mistake.
UNC_Samurai: I'm not going to RTFA if it's another dumb rehash of the Darth Jar-Jar theory.
BizarreMan: The real villain of the prequels is George Lucas.
Unbridled Apathy: I thought we all agreed Smoke was Scrappy-doo in disguise.
kronicfeld: I'm sorry, but did this article just say that we got a glimpse of The Emperor in A New Hope? Was this thin procedurally generated?
bhcompy: If Luke is the bad guy it's in the name of balance in the force. That could be a little righteous, but that's the Jedi way. It also plays into the name of the film, since the rumor has always been that Luke was going to embrace the "gray jedi" middleground that brings its own balance. That makes him a "bad guy", but not the evil guy. I believe that Luke will be a rebel to the end. The guy is still pissed about missing out on Tosche Station, so he's only going to do what he wants from now on

AaronSynn: A glimpse of the Emperor in New Hope?DID LUCAS PUT OUT ANOTHER NEW VERSION I DON'T KNOW ABOUT?
Fano: UNC_Samurai: I'm not going to RTFA if it's another dumb rehash of the Darth Jar-Jar theory.That, like all fan theories, is indeed dumb.
