Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford aren't looking too good nowadays either. In fact, when was the last time you saw Hamill in a film? He mainly does voice acting now (and he's fucking phenomenal at it too).
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Mark Hamill - holy fuck.

Carrie Fisher actually looks better than he does.

I fully expect Mark Hamill to be involved either as an antagonist (either as a sith or just plain evil now) or as a guide to the main characters like Yoda or Obi Wan was to him.

We'd be coming in at post Empire so they'd be all but gone, Luke would have tried to start up another Jedi school and Hans kid would be king/queen of some world. There are plenty of ideas of what would be next to speculate but I want them and JJ Abrams to take their time and not rush. The story has always been about the Skywalkers, so it stands to reason it'll follow their next side of the family in what they do.

Exactly. I expect they'll be in the new films, but they're probably not going to be the main characters. Probably as some sort of mentor or something.


He's still the best Joker ever though.

They are also selling the props or the movie on eBay at the moment, and when I last looked, judge Dredd's uniform was at around £7,500. So there is definitely a call for it now so a sequel will likly be made just a matter of when. It took them about 1.5 years in post production alone on the first film because of the 3d effects.


Yes I have my eye on a few things at the moment. I do also realise that Dredd did well in the UK ( I went 5 times myself!) and the DVDs are selling well so lets hope for movement on the sequels front. :yes:

He made his money on Broadway, he left film for the theatre after Star Wars and enjoyedbit so much he stayed there

Awesome Joker though :yes:

Agreed.

Episode 2 wasn't that bad I just felt disappointed after seeing it. It didn't really have much of a plot and there was no villain. Just a meh fight at the end.

It was ok but the fact I've only seen it twice says a lot

Anyway I'm going to watch Ridley Scott's Director's Cut of Robin Hood now, I love that film not seen it for a while, so that's going to take me nicely to Ripper Street st 2100, then TNA at 2200

Episode 2 had a couple of cool moments, was visually pleasing and had one of the best soundtracks I have ever heard, but as a narrative it just sucks. Episode 1 I loved because it was the first Star Wars film I was introduced to, and that's it. It was already said, it had a good start and a great finish, and everything in-between was meh.


Like Andy, if the new ones are even as good as Episode 3 I'd be happy. Anything better would be a huge bonus. So really I have high hopes, but low expectations.

I watched Episode 2 twice in a row on its opening day.
I don't regret it. Yes, it's a bit dodgy in places but it was a massive improvement on TPM and an excellent film to see on the big screen.

Any independent cinema worth its salt should be doing at least one marathon a year.
