    I’ve been thinking it might be fun to have a crime noir story where Jason Blood is hired/threatened by Jim Corrigan to investigate something demonic from the other end, with Jason’s less refined...

    Jason definitely would benefit more from consistent editorial enforcement - arguably, his issue is that other writers want the rougher, more antagonistic Jason or want him totally mellow, rather than...

    There is, in theory, an advantage to changing up directors - logistically it works better for a short schedule without a single master director, and it *can* lead to a special blend of different...

    Right now, what we’ve got seems to be a mishmash of stuff.

    - Ridley and others implied that Abrams *did* leave some rough draft ideas for the next few films that Johnson then discarded.
    - Johnson...

    Here’s a few examples from different mediums that pop out to me:

    Comics - All the returning characters in New 52 Teen Titans under Scott Lobdell, especially once the Culling was over; it started...

    They ain’t two sides of the same coin now; fascism and would-be-dictatorship vs an alliance of centrism, liberalism, and progressivism that actually respect the rule of law and pursue actual justice...

    The enitre bloodline thing s a weird case of accidentally creating a kind of theme while trying to actually disprove it - Rian Johnson kind of just wanted some kind of meaning behind making Rey a “no...

    The closest approximation to a regular Daredevil fight against hardened-criminals would be the end fight from Karate Kid Part II, where Daniel was forced into an actual fight to the death, which,...

    I think Terrio is “supplemental writer” rather than a “scaffolding writer” - he doesn’t come up with the plot, he’s a dialogue and detail guy... which makes him a horrible mix for any kind of rushed...

    Doing something is better than doing nothing...

    ...But I haven’t ever really respected the Oscars except as a kind of “Oh, and that too” thing that’s nice to have, but can also mean nothing.

    Any attempt at fighting that “theme” died when LFL decided Kylo’s bloodline mattered more than Rey’s reaction to him or John Boyega being hired for the male lead role... so it ironically died in TLJ,...

    ...How in the hell does a President up to stupid shit say “yes” to Bob “Watergate” Woodward about being recorded?

    Hell, Trump is giving Nixon a bad name as a corrupt President. At least Nixon’s...

    Skywalker would have still been superior as it would have smothered any Reylo nonsense in the crib, and prevented Kylo Ren from being a concept that singlehandedly screwed over the Skywalker story.
  14. From Thrawn and Lost Stars, I think a good...

    From Thrawn and Lost Stars, I think a good summation would be: “In the best case scenario, like the Republic, but just a little bit worse in every way, while in the worst case scenario, abominably...

    Superman I: No turning back time BS - either Superman concocts a clever answer to his conundrum or a different one is created he can be clever about, and no Dems Ex Machina nonsense.

    I’m mostly with you on this...

    ...But I think that LFL played a more active role in sandbagging Finn than Disney proper. LFL’s story group was the one in charge of helping to forge the comic and...

    Poe? In terms of being the male lead to Rey? I don’t think so, no matter whether you use the more Wedge Antilles-esque professional from TFA or the Han Solo knock-off from the latter two movies,...

    And I really don’t see that much difference between Luke and Han in ANH in terms of their appeal - all three are a bit larger than life, even when Finn is an Everyman character; heck, Luke is...

    I think the closest you’d get to any alternate cuts would be just alternate takes, deleted scenes, or some “orphaned” storylines, especially for RO and Solo.

    I don’t think there’s such a thing as...

    The biggest difference between Boyega and Fisher is that Boyega can unabashedly point to TFA as a film that at no point cut down on his lead role before production, which is why Fisher says his own...

    I’d love something like that, but I also just liked the way WBM handled Detective Vision in Origins, and using that as a storytelling tool again would be welcomed.

    So...

    The smoking gun for me about Boyega getting shafted after TFA by TLJ was how in spite of all the stupid, vile shit he had to take leading up to TFA, he still proved himself worthy of the role and the...
