I'm alive, but no power for about 26 hours now. Phone reception is shoddy at best.

No major damage here, but family friends have lost all their stuff to flood damage. Close family friend may have lost her house completely, but she won't be allowed on the island to find out for another 10 days.

Glad to hear you're O.K.

I got two feet of water in my house and no power. 90% of L.I. is without power and the guy I work for sent out a text on Tuesday morning that the office had power, was up and running, and "I'll see you all soon."

I texted back that I had gotten two feet of water and was without power and would see him when I could. Came in today and he's walking around whistling. At least I have access to the internet - filed my flood insurance claim first thing.

Driving through my neighborhood is dangerous. Trees and power lines are down every couple of blocks. I don't see how they're going to get power back anytime soon. Yesterday the house smelled like salt water. Today it just smells bad. I'm on Servpro's list for cleanup and am hoping they get to us soon.

Since Disney seems intent on turning Star Wars into an even bigger movie franchise, I can help but wonder if (and hope that) they'll eventually do a Old Republic movie.

Yes, I want to see Revan (mainly because of Bastila and Mission, rawr!) in a live action movie!

Edit: Oh, and as long as they don't put Shia LaBeouf in it, I'm fine with whatever. I was, apparently, the only one who enjoyed Jar Jar in The Phantom Menace, but I can't stand that guy. Just can't stand him.

I'm okay with them doing more movies as long as they don't jump the shark like they did with the Pirates movie franchise.

Then again, I could argue pretty effectively that Lucas already jumped the shark with Ep 1; after the prequel trilogy, pretty much anything Disney may do will be better.

I liked Jar Jar too. When the movie came out I was like 15, and I didn't realize how racist those characters were. I get it now, but I still think he's kind of funny. >.> Nothing wrong with having some humor in a star wars movie, I think.

Basically, some people think there are underlying similarities between the Gargans (sp?) and black stereotypes from the early 20th century.

http://www.weirdworm.com/the-five-most-racist-star-wars-characters/

Apparently there are others as well. Most people don't seem to think it was intentional on Lucas' part, more of a subconscious thing. Although I will say that I think the sand people and the Neimodians are a bit of a stretch. I don't find either of those racist because there really isn't much of a stereotype there. Obviously people who live in a desert are going to wear loose, free flowing clothing and something to protect their face. That only makes logical sense.

I definitely think the author is spot on in terms of the sexism in episodes 1 and 3 though. Leia kicked **** in general. Padme was awesome in the first two movies and lame as **** as soon as she got knocked up. Anakin's mom was just there...

That's not sexism, Tails. Shmi was a civilian and Padmé was a regent in peacetime. Padmé could shoot a blaster, but I doubt Shmi had any combat training at all. Leia was brought up during a galactic war. She was a member of the resistance. It would make no sense for Shmi and Padmé to run around all gung ho, shooting people left and right and participating in the war.

Leia was also brought up as the crown Princess of Alderaan. Part of that was weapons training and tactics. Padmé likely only got a brief version of that, since she was an elected ruler.

Also, is there a reason we should be surprised Padme got "lame" when pregnant? The entirety of Episode III takes place when she's pretty far along in her pregnancy. She wasn't exactly going to be running off into battle just to put her childrens' lives at risk, would she?

I do think the "broken heart" explanation was dumb as **** though. Because no. No one dies of a broken heart.

They could have at LEAST tried to explain it through the force or something. Like losing the will to live after having such proximity to Vader's evil actually means the dark side of the force sucked the life out of her. Still stupid, and clearly contrived, but at least it's an actual explanation.

What Gaxe said, although it wasn't anything directly physical that caused her death in the movie. The droids can't figure out why she's dying, but guess that she lost the will to live. Still stupid and overly sentimental, but not entirely unrealistic. My mom works at a nursing home and she says that a lot of the old couples there tend to die together. Like, not instantly together, but one of them dies and then the other one dies a week or two later.

It was stupid in this movie because there was no @#%^ing chemistry between Anakin and Padmé whatsoever. If they wanted to go with death by heartbreak then they should have put way more focus on their relationship. And hired someone else to portray Anakin, because the only thing I could think when Padmé realized that Anakin was a douche bag was "Thank God, finally!" The rest of us hated him from pretty much the moment he started talking in Episode 2.

So, yeah, the heartbreak thing didn't really work because Hayden's Anakin was so unlikable throughout the two episodes that you didn't identify with him or Padmé at all. There was no "Aww, they were so cute together" or "They deserved each other, sniffles," just relief as Padmé finally got the glitter out of her eyes and saw him for the whiny, egotistical brat that that we, the audience, knew him to be... and then she died.

Smiley: nod

Never saw the entirety of 2 or 3 so have a grain of salt; still the whole plot line seemed really really under-developed. Watching the movies you'd almost assume plot was just put in so they had something to tie all the lightsaber battles together with. Story lines had potential, but it all felt very rushed, forced and hacked together. Bleh.

I thought he was cute, but yeah he acts like a spoiled brat for most of episode 2. If I had been Padme, I might have been initially attracted to him, but as soon as he told me he had killed all those sand people, I would have booked it. I mean seriously, how could you love someone who is so filled with rage that he killed innocent women and children who did absolutely nothing to his mother or him? You can tell that she's pretty disgusted with him, but she still stays by his side after that. WTF?

Sean Connery is the best James Bond, period, and that image from Thunderball is a perfect example of what the new Bond movies lack. In my opinion, of course. Has anyone seen Skyfall? Has Craig acquired sly womanizing skills since the last movie or is he still all Jason Bourne?

Edit: I seriously have no idea who the various people posting on the OOT Facebook page are. I'm getting 5+ mails a day from Facebook because someone wrote something on that page. Silly Facebook.

Er, do you know anything about the 007 series besides the movies?

Because if you don't, I can see why you think Connery is the best, but otherwise, I don't get it.

Casino Royale was a reboot to 007, in many ways. I don't know whether it was Eon or whoever is executing the Fleming estate now, but when they hired Daniel Craig, they decided that they wanted a more realistic and true-to-the-books Bond. Casino Royale was an obvious reboot and a look into what made 007 into the ladykiller he is later in the series.

Quantum was about him getting revenge and becoming more of a cold-hearted bastard, and Skyfall is really the first movie that he may potentially be the Bond we all grew up watching.

Can you tell that I like how Craig portrays Bond because he's not a robot (like Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan, et al)? I liked Connery, but out of the six he did, only four were any good (and only Thunderball and Goldfinger were actually excellent).

I'm sorry, could you run that one by me again? Moore and Brosnan were robotic in their performance, but Stoneface Craig wasn't? Are we talking about the same movies here?

Cowboys and Aliens
Tomb Raider
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
James Bond

Notice a pattern? And I know Moore and Brosnan were typecast as well, but at least they are typecast as likable. Craig looks as if he witnessed someone taking a **** in his morning coffee, and he's now debating with himself if he should reach across the table and punch the guy or get up and walk away in an indifferent way.

I like Pierce Brosnan's 007, but I'll admit he is a bit stone faced. He was sexy, charming, and sneaky. Roger Moore has the charisma of a wet mop. Daniel Craig is just lacking something. I don't know what it is though. I've seen Casino Royale 2 or 3 times, and I can't put my finger on it. Haven't seen the other two newer ones.

The thing is that 007 isn't supposed to be "sexy" or "sneaky." He's supposed to basically be a badass that, while he knows wine, cigars, cognac, etc, can beat the **** out of even the best Special Forces guys at a moments notice.

Daniel Craig embodies that. Every action scene he's in, I get the feeling that he's one moment away from snapping.

Try reading Casino Royale (it's only like 100-150 pages) and then watching the movie and tell me that Craig did a bad job.

Also, the third Craig movie isn't out yet. Smiley: tongue

Anyway, I'm not saying Craig did a bad job (I liked his acting in all of the above movies), I just don't like the new Bond. It may be truer to the Bond Ian Fleming envisioned (before he started writing Bond novels from screenplays), but the movie franchise has its own history by now. The last Bond movie that was even inspired by one of Fleming's novels was License to Kill from 1989. I grew up with the movies, not the books. My parents grew up with the movies (the first one is Dr. No from 1962, which my parents took me to - at a drive-in cinema - when I was a toddler - edit: not in 1962, though).

In the end, like with the new Batman movies, it's a matter of opinion. There's no right or wrong Batman or Bond here, there's just personal preference.

I can understand that, I'm just a traditionalist. After I saw my first Bond movie my dad took me out to get a copy of Casino Royale so I could see the differences between Bond movies and books, and I've always preferred the book version until Craig started playing Bond.

I've seen Casino Royale too many times to count, and I'm one of those people that actually liked Quantum of Solace.

I honestly can't tell you what the last Bond movie I saw was (in terms of the series, not which I actually saw last). I think I only saw one of Craig's movies. The last one I really remember is Die Another Day. Of the newish movies, the one I remember the best is GoldenEye.

Honestly though, there's so many I can't remember the titles and I'm too lazy to look of the plot synopses to see which I've seen/remember.

My teeth feel long. All the bond actors have been solid, unlike the movies.

To me, Craig is the "modern" 007 (not just the newest), and Connery, Moore, Brosnan, and Dalton are "classic" 007s. Connery deserves the "Sir", although all served well. Dalton was the weakest bond, but he got **** scripts (and had the best Bond girl, Carey Lowell (wife of Richard Gere)).

The classic Bonds all excelled at what, for some reason, had to be cheesy 007s. Connery's chest pubes (and acting chops) established him as the alpha agent, no matter how ridiculous the scene.

Craig's Bond, while benefitting from bigger budgets and special effects, had no easy in with the audience, and succeeded through his sheer bad*ssery.

Once upon a time, I thought Connery forever would be best. But Craig is holding his own.

I see Craig's Bond as a modern times special agent while I see Connery's, Moore's and Brosnan's Bond as a 60's/70's secret agent, if you know what I mean.

Craig pulls off the ex-military agent who was born and raised to kill sh*t with his bare hands, like Matt Damon in Jason Bourne and Liam Neeson in Taken (I love that movie). The "old" Bonds were more about being a British gentleman and throwing punches when the bad guys, usually sporting a sinister voice, tried to have him assassinated while in the company of a beautiful, rarely innocent, girl in his hotel room. Not to mention the gadgets.

There was an FPS video game back in the days where you played a (female?) secret agent in a universe that reminded me of a mix between Bond, Evil Genius (game) and Austin Powers. You had tranquilizer perfume, explosive lipstick and all kinds of crazy gadgets. Loved that game, but I can't remember its name.

Edit: No One Lives Forever!

Holy crap, that was 12 years ago. I feel old. Smiley: frown

So, this morning started by missing my train by about 30 seconds followed by the next train going completely MIA and when I finally got in the train it had to slow down first and now we're going back to the previous station because the train in front of us hit a dog and they can't get it scraped off the tracks or something.

Oh and I got to deal with a furious and frustrated mother because her internet broke down and the helpdesk is unreachable.

Luckily there's free wifi in the train but all links on reddit are purple by now. I want to @#%^ing hurt someone now.

Dead thread is dead. You guys drank yourselves into a coma or something?

Edit: no internet apparently, that's even worse!

Good reason to drink into a coma.
