Rogue None?

I realize this title may be more clickbaity. This isn't a full on article. Just a brief announcement.

There's a good chance I will be skipping Rogue One during its theatrical run.

I'm not boycotting it. I actually commend them for bringing the Mon Mothma from the RotS deleted scenes back, and hope the rumors about the return of Smitts as Bail are true. And I'll probably catch it and give it a fair shake when it's released to home formats. And remember, I famously would never have even given Clone Wars a second look had my eventual wife not won tickets from a radio contest.

It's just none of the trailers I've seen for it make me the least bit excited. The style it's advertising just doesn't interest me.

If my family decides to go and pay the way, I may go with them. But with limited money, and movies I am excited about such as Fantasic Beasts and Dr. Strange coming out, well...if I had to choose, I'll save my money on Rogue One. So don't expect a timely dissertation from me. If it happens anyway, well, it'll be a nice surprise. Just don't count on it.

And let me know when the official VIII trailer comes out.

Public Service Announcement

I don't like to talk politics on this site. It opens up a Pandora's Box of gargantuan proportions, and this site is about having fun and celebrating cool things. As bad as some of the Star Wars discussions get, they rarely approach what political subjects can devolve into.

But I feel like this election is too important to ignore.

So I'm going to urge people to be civil. I won't say "if you don't want to hear it, avoid it," since the entire reason I'm doing this is to reach out to people. However, think before you comment. Too much baseless accusations and negativity without respect or decorum and I will not only delete offending comments like I've done in extreme cases for Star Wars, but disable comments for this post altogether.

I hope I don't regret this...
