I think Buc hit the nail on the head there. As long as you're gonna give us amazing stuff and expand the universe, take my f'ing money. A Thrawn movie or tv series based off of the Timothy Zahn book (soon to be books) would be incredible to me.

As for TLJ, I like that Rey ISN'T connected to the Skywalker family and I hope they keep it that way. If a random from Jakku/'nowhere' can be Force-capable, then so can anyone else (which I think the film alluded to at the end with the kid).

I think there has never been a question about the ability for anyone to wield the force but I like the Skywalker thread.  I like the spin offs just as you guys do, I love these stories outside the main story line.  I would rather see them go completely unconnected however, like a knights of the old republic movies series.  In the end I have enjoyed the movies and I know its a vocal minority that "hate" them but in the internet keyboard warrior era that can be all it takes to scare a studio.  I know that not everyone loves the DC movies but they have all been profitable.  Yet the studio is talking major changes.  I have my issues with the DC movies but if the MCU did not exist we would love the DC movies.

Alright here goes, and let me preface this first by saying I absolutely love and respect Sean Connery:

Daniel Craig is a better 007 than Sean Connery.

Well I disagree but let me explain why.  I don't think it is fair to compare the Daniel Craig era Bond to any other Bond, it is apples to Oranges.  The old bond movies had a campy feel to them more tongue in cheek than serious.  I believe given the same script with the same tone Connery wins out but it is one of those unanswerable questions. After all I prefer the really campy Roger Moore era.

Yeah, that's the weird thing about Bond films. The old ones do hue fairly close together (Connery, Moore, Brosnan) although either getting campier as they go or being fairly campy regularly (Moonraker, anyone?)

Whereas Daniel Craig Bond is so much more influenced by things like Mission Impossible and, most especially, the Bourne movies, it's hard to make that comparison. Plus, in general, just the writing around the film. I'll defend Pierce Brosnan himself until my dying day, but I can't defend the movies he's in after Tomorrow Never Dies (World is Not Enough is at least watchable, while ridiculous, and bringing back Valentin elevates it. Die Another Day, however, has no good things). Craig has certainly been the recipient of higher level writing (I know most people hate Quantom of Solace, I love it, I can look past Skyfall's plot holes and Spectre was....well, Spectre was the low point).

*whispers*

The 2018 Red Sox are an incredibly fun team to watch, Moomie Betts MIGHT be the best player in baseball (not-Mike Trout division) and their win pace right now is literally historic, and these guys just gel together so well and it's hard not to admire them.

But also fuck the Red Sox.
