I just wanna say that the thing about TLJ that struck me was that the called Not Hoth "the mineral planet," which besides being a dumb descriptor made me realize that all the single biome planets in Star Wars are known as "X Planet".

Tatooine - the Desert Planet

Hoth - The Ice Planet

Kashyyk - The Jungle Planet

Bajor - The Pretty Planet

Coruscant - the Boring Politics Planet

I mean, whats up with that?

Bajor was from Star Trek, was that part of the joke?

I only remember Hoth being called 'the remote planet.'

Dagobah is the swamp planet. And the forest-moon of Endor. Yeah - it's a thing in Star Wars and it's a stupid thing. But if each planet has a variety of terrains then you wouldn't need to go to a different planet everytime you go somewhere - it's basically a cheap way of making the galaxy feel bigger but it can also backfire.

Just got back from finally seeing TLJ...
I don't think I've been this disappointed in a Star Wars movie since Phantom Menace. This movie was *awful*, both as a Star Wars movie and just as a film.

Point by point on the plot:

This film is structurally a mess and thematically a disaster. I rate it way worse than TFA, worse than Episodes II and III. I honestly can't decide if I dislike this more than the Phantom Menace. If you're a Star Wars fan, this movie doesn't want you to like it, and if you're not...then why would you start with Episode EIGHT?

Disney has always been political. Back in the day, the government paid them to be.

I found it entertaining so long as I didn't think about a damned thing.

It does seem that TFA and TLJ suffer from missed opportunities and lackluster writing. I don't know how they cannot afford better writers.

Technically, it's referred to as "remote ice world of Hoth" in Empire. Which is close enough. I think it's referred to as an "ice planet" in some secondary media, like video games and such.

You would think, that after 30+ years, they'd have found a better way of expanding the setting. Guess it's just so entrenched in the Star Wars formula that it won't be changing anytime soon...

Star Wars is fantasy. The only rules it has to obey are the ones it establishes for itself. Introducing multi-biome planets to Star Wars only raises the question of why there aren't more.

I suspect that the writers have a laundry list of workshopped requirements that included such things as too many fan-service characters, the requirement to do scenes in the best concept art they commissioned, narratively map onto 4/5/6, and the requirement to actively phase out all the old actors.

Its the mad-lib of screenwriting.

This movie is fractally nonsensical.

So, I am like, super psyched for the new female Doctor. But her outfit... High-waisted pants and suspenders? No one, not one human being or Time Lord on this planet - or any other - should ever wear that. It's an utter nightmare.

Eh, they said that about Colin Baker's outfit.

Admittedly, he did turn out to be the least popular doctor so far.

Yeah, well, you have pamphlets made from human skin, so you're weird.

Colin's outfit was also nightmare, but it was the middle of the eighties, when that sort of shit flew. It's 2018, for Primus's sake, suspenders and cat emblems and cricket jackets with lettuce on them... We've moved beyond all that!

Hey, I'd have human skin pamphlets, too, if I could afford them... I've heard of a box of copies of the necronomicon that were in the vicinity of a fire that people died in so they smell like burning human, too.

Currently watching the 2017 Mummy movie. It's fine. The worst part so far is Tom Cruise and his character and everything that involves him.

RWBY season 3 the death of Roman Torchwick. The most bullshit Deus Ex Machina shit I've seen short of the actual gods coming down to unfuck the mess.

The sad thing is that RWBY really suffers in the villain department. The instant he reveals an interesting motivation that could lead to all sorts of entertaining story developments, he dies.

I know, I was expecting him to explode the bird after Ruby made her getaway then complain about the stains never coming out of his suit.

That would have been nice, yes. Taking out both Neo and Roman in less than 5 minutes felt a bit...cheap.

So I also saw Justice League last night. While it was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, the bit where a Steve Mnuchin movie calls Barry Allen a failure for working three-part time jobs to try to earn a degree was a special level of out-of-touch insult.

I was working from home (but actually a friend's house who just moved) and he decided to watch it on a break. I was in the room and tuned in and out, but I would say I got the gist. It wasn't totally joyless and dark, but there was a fair bit of 'grim-derk' just for the sake of grim-derk. I liked the Wonder Woman scenes (and perhaps they meant more since I have seen Wonderwoman).

I HATED HATED HATED the CGI fear-demons. I cannot believe how crappy they looked.

Speaking of crappy CGI...I just saw Black Panther. Wow. So bad. The fight scenes were pretty uniformlly awful, consisting of either quick-cut-Jason-Bourne shit or CGI so bad it looked like Matrix2 stuff.
