First! Err...second. Laura Dern?!? And Del Toro, too? Weird casting. Let's see...

I'm sure I said this somewhere else but IMO the Rian Johnson film to watch to get an idea of how he's going to handle an ensemble is The Brothers Bloom.

I don't think either Brothers Bloom or Looper was a masterpiece, but they both had lots to like. And the Breaking Bad episode Rian Johnson directed where Walt and Jesse try to catch the fly in the lab was one of the best in the whole series. He's definitely a more interesting director visually than Abrams.

Interesting that Johnson is also writing the screenplay, though obviously it will a committee job, even if it's only his name in the credits. All of his previous works that I've seen have been about relations between men and masculinity (surrogate father/surrogate son, big brother/little brother, etc), so we'll see how he manages a movie with a female protagonist. I do hope Episode 8 will develop the Leia/Rey relationship also; there are so many works of fiction about a plucky younger woman being taught by a older mentor man, and I guess that's where the next movie is heading also based on Ep. 7's ending, but I'd like to see more than that.

extrapolating from films to Star Wars seems weird

(not entirely being snarky -- what does Eye of the Needle or The Luck of Ginger Coffey have to do with ROTJ or ESB?)

we can be heroes just for about 3.6 seconds (Dr Morbius), Tuesday, 16 February 2016 12:42 (one year ago) Permalink

I wouldn't have extrapolated as much if I hadn't learned Johnson has also written the script. Even if he almost definitely did it based on a pre-existing plot outline, it still means he has more control over the story and the characters than the directors of ROTJ and ESB had.

Tuomas, Tuesday, 16 February 2016 12:46 (one year ago) Permalink

It sounds very much like episode 8 was bafflingly meant to shift focus away from Rey until fan reaction spurred a relatively recent spate of rewrites.

I thought it was reasonably common knowledge?

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Tuesday, 16 February 2016 13:21 (one year ago) Permalink

From that information I wouldn't say it read as "shifting focus away from Rey" as much as our main characters having to share more screen time with others. But Rey (and Finn) worked better than anything else in Ep 7 so they now go all in on them (if that rumor is correct).

abcfsk, Tuesday, 16 February 2016 13:26 (one year ago) Permalink

I guess less "shifting focus away" and more shifting focus towards new characters. New characters are fine and essential but they have a nice core cast to work from so it would be a shame if they lost focus on that.

maybe my clam is just more toxic (Old Lunch), Tuesday, 16 February 2016 13:31 (one year ago) Permalink

Sure, but it's odd to assume that more time for new characters was shifting focus away from Rey specifically?

Apparently those new shots were grabbed late last year by Rian Johnson on a return to the island. So it looks at if VIII will pick up immediately where TFA left off, which will be a first for the franchise.

Who would win in a fight, Draculas or Jedis?

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 14 March 2016 20:22 (one year ago) Permalink

You'd be surprised how much of that type of thing gets covered in the Clone Wars cartoon

El Tomboto, Monday, 14 March 2016 20:29 (one year ago) Permalink

I'd vote Draculas, because they can turn into bats, control wolves, and can't be killed by anything but sunlight and a stake through the heart. Hmm, would a lightsaber killer a Dracula through the heart? Would a Jedi even know how to do that, seeing as they exist outside of any Judeo-Christian religious stuff? I guess they could read a Dracula's mind, but I bet Draculas are pretty good at clouding their intentions.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 14 March 2016 20:32 (one year ago) Permalink

Jedis are remarkably good at figuring out how to kill new and exotic things, so they'd figure it out, and I'm willing to bet a lightsaber would not only kill a vampire, but also do whatever else fire does to vampires.

El Tomboto, Monday, 14 March 2016 20:48 (one year ago) Permalink

Jedi can use the force, which flows in all living things.

_LIVING_ things.

Dracula is master of the undead. Force-choking (or any force attacks) would not work on Dracula nor most of the denizens of his castle. The life force is essential to a Jedi so in the realm of undead things The Force would perhaps have no effect. Important to remember that vampires, skeletons, and other undead are not truly alive but only given that appearance (animated if you will) by dark powers.

lightsaber vs vampire just makes me think of buffy pulling out the rocket launcher ("that was then; this is now")

What if Dracula was fighting a Force Ghost?

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 14 March 2016 21:10 (one year ago) Permalink

wait, does force-choking work because the person being choked is a living thing? i always figured it was just straight up telekinesis. i mean, the rocks and crates and things they throw around aren't living.

anyway, the dark animating powers might also be a kind of living things. like we perceive them as dead/undead but cosmically, force-wise, this may be a kind of life.

van damme death warrant (Doctor Casino), Monday, 14 March 2016 21:10 (one year ago) Permalink

yeah i guess lightsabers aren't living things either and they can move them at will. so they probably just have regular telekinesis. still i don't think a Jedi could force choke someone, like it is impossible to do if they have followed the training.

then again Dracula probably doesn't need to breathe, hence the tendency to sleep in a closed coffin.

AdamVania (Adam Bruneau), Monday, 14 March 2016 21:22 (one year ago) Permalink

yeah agreed with all that. basically though dracula has a huge disadvantage in terms of ranged attacks. jedis are definitely capable of hurling rocks or random machinery at you; usually they're fighting people who can mount at least some kind of counterattack at a distance (blasters). at best dracula has defensive moves like turning into mist.

van damme death warrant (Doctor Casino), Monday, 14 March 2016 21:27 (one year ago) Permalink

he can turn to mist he can also turn into a bat or rat and flee or evade the incoming hurtling rocks. Jedi outmatch him in offensive capabilities so maybe a single one-on-one fight is tilted in their favor.

however, Jedi appear quite susceptible to Force Clouding (them missing all warning signs throughout the entirety of the prequels) and one of Dracula's main techniques is mind control, so it's probably in Dracula's best interest to use that and plan a sneak attack.

AdamVania (Adam Bruneau), Monday, 14 March 2016 21:54 (one year ago) Permalink

yeah tbf dracula is also definitely a long-term plotter, in the original book. lot of ground work being laid for what will ultimately be tension-free and repetitive pseudo-scenes. he has a lot in common with palpatine really. (obviously not dealing here with the obvious dooku/dracula business.) i still think if it comes down to a one-on-one battle a semi-competent jedi could basically take dracula. the jedis only lost in the prequels because they were shittily written garbage yoda couldn't take palpatine in single combat, and i can't see dracula winning the same fight.

I don't know, can't Dracula communicate from a distance? Via dreams and stuff? Plus, he can clearly bend people to his will, a la a Jedi. Plus, a Dracula could turn a Jedi into another Dracula, and then you'd have a Jedi Dracula, who would be pretty much unstoppable. Wait, does a Dracula needs to subsist on human blood, or any blood? Sometimes Draculas eat rats and animal blood. The people in Star Wars are just nominally human, but they're really humanoid. We don't know if they're even compatible with a Dracula. But if they were, we might end up with another "Lifeforce."

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Anzat_(species)

Once a victim was within their power, the Anzati would uncoil their thin proboscises from their cheek pouches located on either side of its nose and usually inserted them into the subject's nostrils and into the cranium, where the brain was sucked out of the organism(2), though the Anzati fed by drawing soup out of wherever it resided in a victim, as it varied by species. In most humanoid races, it lay within the brain cavity. Almost of their own, the proboscises sought the victim's soup, and began draining it into the Anzat. The victim could struggle, though often the Anzat's attack was so sudden, so perfect, that it was too late(7) This action, however, required time and could not be rushed. This behavior led to the nickname of "snot vampires."(1)

Mark Hamil speaks -- a wry presence.

When the critic John Simon wrote in New York magazine that Mr. Ford had performed “adequately,” Mr. Hamill “uninspiredly” and Ms. Fisher “wretchedly,” Mr. Hamill said, “We had T-shirts made: ‘adequate, uninspired and wretched.’ I said, ‘Harrison, adequate’s practically a rave compared to what we got.’”
