    Well, duh, that's obvious. I haven't exactly got much love for him after the whole I'm Han Solo affair, but still!

      I don't think he wasn't involved in that Kinect game, contrary to belief on every Star Wars related product outside of the six movies.

      I'm really glad you brought this video to my attention, not because it's good or enjoyable, but because I can now force other people to watch it as well.

      That's really quite... something! Surprised I haven't seen this yet, honestly.

      Context for the picture. There are "Star Wars Weekends" every May at the Hollywood Studios park in Walt Disney World. Some extra Star Wars events than there would usually be. A lot more characters (and Disney characters in Star Wars garb like in that picture). And the 501st Legion is wandering about. George has been on hand a few times to launch the event. They have a whole Endor area in that park aswell.

      That picture though I think was from when they launched the revamp of the Star Tours ride. Lucas was there for that and it was a big deal

      Silver Linings Playbook is by far one of the best movies I have ever seen, I highly recommend. Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper AND Robert De Niro all deserve some love from the Academy next month. It's as funny and optimistic as it is dark, and if you're from Philly you will especially love it. Enjoyable from beginning to end.

      Very interesting! Will check out, absolutely.

      I've begun watching Code:Breaker for some reason. Only seen 3 episodes so far. Seems decently promising though. Bit violent but not excessively so.

        I'm probably only watching the SHAFT show and Hotpants: The Anime. Crap season.

        I was referring to his graven expression.

        So, Les Miserables was absolute perfection! I couldn't have asked for a better representation of the book, and Amanda Seyfried, Hugh Jackman, and Eddie Redmayne (as well as Anne Hathaway in the scenes she was actually present) gave brilliant performances. I wish I had seen this earlier, aaaa. Would see it again, definitely.

        Oh man, I really want to see it. I heard a lot of good things about it. Is Anne Hathaway not in it a lot?

        Ahh I'm so jealous, can't wait to see this. I heard Hathaway was supposed to be one of the main stars though, what happened there?

        I heard that Russell Crowe was not very good in it, as in he's not a very good singer. Also heard that they moved some plot things around, but not being very knowledgeable about the musical I couldn't say whether that's an improvement or not.

        Russel Crowe was not a very good singer, but he played the part of Javiert exceptionally well. Also, Les Miserables was never a musical before - it was a book and, soon after, a play.

        And, about Anne Hathaway -

        Spoiler:
        She plays the role of Fantine, the mother of Cosette. She passes away early on from a disease she contracts after selling her body off to prostitution to earn money to support her daughter after she is fired from her only job. Despite having to be written out early, she was spectacular.

        Oh wow, I thought she was in it the whole time. She's a fantastic actress. She sang I Dreamed A Dream perfectly. She also went the extra mile to shave her head for the part, a lot of people would not do that for a film.

        So different now from what it seemed...

        I nearly shed a tear. Her voice is so powerful, so melodious... it was impossible not to be riveted by her performance. And she did appear again near the end, but the reason why is kind of a spoiler, so I'll keep it to myself. [:

        blehhh I'm starting to not what to watch this now, if the appearing again is anything like I'm expecting from what I know about the story then I don't think I'll be able to watch it :( I don't like getting emotional in front of people, especially not in a crowded movie theatre. ;;

        Ya, unfortunately this season is pretty bad =_=

        While I have a few guilty pleasures littered about (D.C.III, Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited, Haganai 2, Vanguard), they probably won't be anything particularly special.

        Maoyuu Maou Yuusha should prove amusing so long they don't make the rest of the show about boobs.
        Hot Pants the anime AKA Vividred Operation is an original, so there's a bit of hope in there.
        If you're into Otome Game anime, there's Amnesia, which as the premise suggests could be interesting depending on execution.
        Tamako Market is Kyoto Animation's project for this season. Personally, I'm expecting more of the same.
        [email protected] seems to have an interesting premise (Also the only SHAFT show this season).
        Love Live is an idol anime. As per a large main cast, how good you think the show is will probably depend on how much you like the characters and if said characters get screen time.
        Fanservice-wise, there's Senran Kagura, both will probably be more action-oriented service.
        Mondaiji seems like it'll be more of a personality/costume-based fanservice, but still looks promising maybe? I'd have to watch the first ep to get a better idea of what's going on there.

        For my Guity Pleasures
        If you're a fan of the Zettai Karen Children series, ZKC: The Unlimited takes the story into Hyoubu Kyousuke's side in his own story.
        Da Capo III is a pretty generic dating sim. It's a classic title, but I wouldn't suggest watching it if you're not into galge shows.
        And the others are sequels.

        ....isn't Les Mis literally the longest running musical on Broadway? Either that or Phantom, but still...?

        I swore I couldn't find results for a Les Miserables musical when I looked it up a bit ago. Nevermind, haha. v___v;; Yeah, it seems to have been first produced on Broadway in 1987, with another revival due 2014.

        I had a coworker who's going to see Les Mis. She asks me if I know what Les Misérables means in English. "The Miserables?" I say. "That's not a very inviting title." She didn't know what the story was about.

        oh good we're talking about Les Mis!

        I was disappointed with the movie overall, but that was mostly because I didn't think Anne Hathaway (literally the only reason I went to see it, I hate Hugh Jackman) would die as early as she did. Once that happened, all the emotion from the movie was gone (Jean Valjean is not a good character and I don't care about him) and the only times I got emotional at all were at the end and when they sang Do You Hear The People Sing?

        Anne Hathaway though. Far out, she was amazing. If she doesn't get the Oscar this year, there is something horribly wrong.

        You have to admit Empty Chairs at Empty Tables tugged at your heartstrings, especially with the power Marius sang it with. His voice was simply awestriking and the lyrics of the song in the context of the movie were just... I can't. xD; I agree that Hathaway should receive an Oscar for her performance and if she doesn't, someone somewhere is not having successful psychologist meetings.
