    I don't see a need to compromise as to whether it is a good movie but a bad Star Wars movie.

    I thought it was just a bad movie period. Boring as all balls, poorly paced and edited and characters and plot doesn't progress one bit. Over half the film is poorly delivered exposition and filler sub-plots. The thing that everyone wanted to see, ever since Episode 7, was Luke Skywalker and they couldn't even deliver on that.

    Eh barely any of mine do, just the ones teaching the compulsory subjects I've had like the history of detention centers and the history of Australian migration. The first subject, the professor/lecturer absolutely refused to consider the possibility that the positives of imprisonment outweight the negatives and just ranted that prisons and detention centers were violations of human rights and unfair.

    Because the lecturer read some Foucault and thought he/she now holds the answers to everything.

    On the other hand we have a totally open mind. (And of course we have read Foucault). (Cant help it, sorry). (Not really )

    I haven't read Foucault but he is French (maybe) and so probably a tool.

    I would've thought someone taking a dump in front of you would be a good omen for the new year.

    You have a strange idea of what constitutes a good omen. Unless you were actually just trying to say "oh, manure".

    In 5 short posts I was proven correct about the French menace.

    On a different note....there doesn't seem to be a "pet" thread...so I'm putting this here. New member of the family, Leon. Try to identify what breeds is he.

    Of course, with the uncanny dog sense, within hour he managed to identify narrowest spot in whole house to sleep.

    Doubtful. I intentionally wrote "breeds" because he's a mutt. No idea what exactly though, and they didn't know in shelter either.
