I asked a few people their thoughts on this trailer:
The Angry Ginger, @s7evendaysageek: Epic might be over used…but Holy Shit! So much eye candy I’m almost positive Willy Wonka directed it.
The “Uncanny” OZ I’m thinking it’ll be okay.
☆BaronessB☆ If Rey goes dark dude I’m tearing up my girl power poster….
History of Bad Ideas, @BadIdeasPodcast it’s so beautiful
So there you are folks the last trailer (well that is what they are saying) before the December 15th release. Like you I am looking forward to seeing the next chapter. Also like you I am hoping that we will see a new path. A different direction and not rewrite of ‘Empire’. If have to realized that like the original series 4,5,6 there has to be some struggle. The heroes can not win ever battle. So like the other movies do not be surprised that this movie does not end on a happy not. To tell a good story it has to. But please remember that just because it may have that ark does it not mean it is a rewrite of Empire or Attack of the Clones.

On the latest The Pop Culture Cafe Scott and I talk about this short film. If you are a fan of the “Ghost In The Shell” or “Appleseed” you may notice that some of the design of the robots have the look for these series.
On a post-apocalyptic Earth, Leila Dawn (Natalie Floyd), is the only human survivor. Raised by Robots after humanity abandoned the planet they destroyed with nuclear warfare, Leila cannot forget her parents nor ignore her yearning to find other organic life. A hunt she sets out on with Swat Team robot, Marker (Lex Cassar), leads Leila to discover a human disguised as Robot, Ray (Jake Lyall), and the reality she’s been denied-a reality that sparks her ultimate quest. PLUG is a short film from acclaimed science-fiction film art director, David Levy (Tron Legacy, Prometheus, Enders Game, Tomorrow Land). It is the first installment of Levy’s yet to be produced epic series/feature, which follows Leila on her quest to reunite with humanity and the impossible choices she must make about her allegiances – Human or Robot.
If you have listening to The Pop Culture Cafe podcast(if not shame on you) Scott and I talked about the “My Friend Dahmer”. Well if you have not seen it then here you go ladies and gents.
Before Jeffrey Dahmer became a notorious serial killer, he was a shy, alcoholic teen who never quite fit in. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Derf Backderf, this is the true, haunting story of Jeffrey Dahmer in high school.
