Scout Report / Re: Annual Canadian Tire pre-Christmas Sale

Dammit I need those at that price. Hopefully my store has both.

And they did. I'm very grateful for this store report, Canadian Tire is a place I go with some frequency but I never check the toys! Thank you again!!!  :love0030:

I understood the bot part, it just sounded more "tech savvy" than the guy being interviewed would be capable of (based on his dumb sounding replies). I guess he recruited help - lots of smart people out there that love doing that type of stuff just to show they can, not to serve any particular cause. I guess I'm kinda hoping that was the case here, but I'm sure there are tech savvy dummies as well.

EDITED: Viewing #3 tonight & some of the things were back to bugging me again. I'm up & down like a toilet seat.  :crazy:

Where ar the provincials? How can I access them?

I've updated your profile. Please scan down the list of areas from the main forum page & see if you can access the Provincial areas. The specific locations of store reports, what was found & when, should now be available.

It's hard to believe one guy in a position like that (not a significantly powerful one, by my assessment), can rally enough help from other morons to influence things. Goes to show how fragile some things on the internet - ie veracity of information - still are. Make sure you read as many sides of a story as you can these days!  :speechless-smiley-004:

I think the fact that not everyone loves it right off the hop is interesting. Some people might come around & some likely won't - but to me that's the sign of a director & producer NOT playing it safe & NOT pandering to the fans desires/expectations/senses of entitlement.

People automatically assume that 95 percent of everyone polled is going to love Star Wars no matter what they feed us. Personally, I'd prefer them to make bold movies than give the masses what they want every time.

*Disclaimer - I'm not suggesting LJ is any more or less "bold" than any other entry in the series.

They can hate all they want, I loved Luke's story and that's more than enough for me to enjoy this movie. They let the dry & witty Mark shine through.

Hope you're feeling as well as can be, Ian. The movie will be there for you as soon as you're well enough to get there!

Sadly, I'd pay right up front. I love the creatures & try to get everyone they create in the 3.75" format.  :speechless-smiley-004:

A very interesting thing happening here is that the Force ghosts now DO be able to touch things in the real world. Rember, Yoda bonks Luke with his cane & sets fire to the tree with real-life lightning. I wonder if Luke will play a role in the final duel with Kylo from beyond the grave.

I agree with CJ inasmuch as I'm sure they are crunching the numbers and trying to figure out why the audience reaction is what it is. I'm wondering, though, how many of us would have left ESB in 1980 completely satisfied? I remember being pissed off that it was left hanging like that.

If Rotten Tomatoes existed back then, would the greatest movie ever made have fared much better in the first week after its release? I honestly believe we are only able to appreciate ESB for what it is because of the unbelievably tidy way everything was resolved 3 years later by ROJ.

Second viewing complete & I 100 percent agree that it gets better. There are certain music albums that feel a bit weird to start but then grow on you in a big way, this movie has that potential. It felt like less time was wasted than I initially though, and I thought Poe & Finn's stories made more sense the second time - I was obviously focusing too hard on the Luke/Rey/Kylo the stuff the first time around & wanted them to hurry up & get back to that.

The space battles are absurdly good. The Crait battle is fine, but, aping  Hoth is a tough one to sell to an old fan like me. The battering ram wasn't enough of something new for it to feel like an homage, but new at the same time (btw, weird they would choose to have the walkers going left to right this time, instead of the traditional right to left). 

That being said, I'm still glad I was 100 percent happy with where they took Luke's story the first time around, I wouldn't want to be in a position where I was trying to justify things to myself.

EDITED: Bob, that's a very astute observation. The Casino DID feel like the prequels - particularly the Opera House from ROTS - to me. Excellent.

George said it was "beautifully made", which I took to be him saying something quasi-positive that Disney wouldn't blanch at & ask him to retract.

I asked the same thing & YES, he used the Force. My theory is that Rian Johnston planted the seed for his own trilogy right there. Time will tell.

I'll go back & see if I can get more at my WM. I had 2 extra complete sets of the 3.75" black series, but they are both spoken for :(

I thought Luke kicked tremendous butt by being able to cast his form across the galaxy. I loved that. To me, Yoda should have taken a similar tact to beat Dooku easily in EpII... I never understood why he went toe to toe. Luke's story I'm good with. It's Leia spacewalk & them not writing her out of the story properly I can't resolve yet.

Snoke - the visual dictionary confirms he is NOT Sith, but provides little else. Coming soon to a book store near you I'd have to assume, which I'm not satisfied with personally. The needed to give more.

Phasma - I'm really wondering if bringing her back was a joke. We'll have to see if it happens again in IX now.... You killed Phasma, you bastard!
