Star Wars: The Last Jedi

The Last Jedi did not feel as focused as the Force Awakens to me.

I felt the pacing was off and some of the transitions between scenes were rather sharp.

The story gets darker than the first, but ends on a note of hope.

I’m conflicted about the final fate of some characters. Some we learn nothing about (guessing it is being held back for a Tales movie) and others almost felt like clearing the board for the new class.

Starring: Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

We all know how this story is going to end. But that is not the point. It is the journey that really matters.

Star Wars has been a part of my life since as far back as I can remember. And this movie did not disappoint story-wise.

I highly recommend seeing this movie in the theater.

This movie kept the dirty aesthetics from A New Hope. The special effects were overall good. But. I do want to get my only real negative out of the way. There are 2 CGI human characters in the movie that totally take you out of it. One is only shown at the end. We did not need to see that characters face to know who it was. But the other character is in a large part of the movie. Every time I saw this character’s face, it completely removed me from the movie. This role could easily have been recast. The de-aging effect performed on Michael Douglas for Ant-Man was way more believable than the work on this character.

Okay. Negatives done. Back to gushing about the movie.

SWTOR: Dulfy gives everyone a breakdown of what to expect in patch 1.2

Dulfy went above and beyond to sift through the information from Bioware’s Guild Summit to give information on patch 1.2.

The patch is expected in early April, 2012.

“Hey everyone, I recently had the pleasure of attending the Guild Summit via livestreaming, where a host of panels were held discussing the upcoming patch 1.2 (scheduled to be released sometime in early April) and other new features/changes that are coming to SWTOR. There were quite a bit of information – the transcript of which I have captured here if you want to view all the details. In case you don’t feel like reading through pages of my notes, I have created a guide here summarizing all the important features you can expect for patch 1.2 and beyond!” -Dulfy

I, myself, cannot wait for the Legacy system updates.  The warzone changes will be nice as well.  I hope the changes will help with people quitting as soon as the other team scores a point in Huttball or captures 2 turrets in Civil War.
