    That's true. Yeah when I was young I always even associated the 20th Century music with Star Wars - that *was* Star Wars music to me, haha. It was a great feeling seeing the Star Wars logo and the scrolling text on the big screen. I saw it on opening night so emotions were really high in the theatre, and everyone cheered when the movie started. Of course people cheered a lot when Han and Chewie came on screen, when C-3P0 came on, times like that - and also when the Millenium Falcon first showed up. That was great! "The junk will do!"

    You make a good point about Snoke's age; now I'm wondering what he was up to back then! Also I kept wondering why Hux looked so familiar to me and then I realized he was Charlie Weasley.

    Yeah Phasma was heavily advertised but she barely had a part. I'd be surprised if she didn't have more to do next time. My guess is that it was a combination of being so guilty about what he had done, and also keeping her safe (i.e. away from him). Some people are also wondering if she's a relative of Obi-Wan; I mean, who knows what he was up to between episodes 3 and 4; maybe he had a kid that would become one of her parents. Another idea is that she's a Kenobi and a Skywalker although I think that's pushing it a bit. I was also thinking she might be a Solo throughout a lot of the movie, but then a daughter was never mentioned by Han or Leia so I think that's the least likely explanation. Poe was pretty great too, hopefully we see more of him as well. C-3PO wasn't really needed other than completeness I think. I'll always think of C-3PO and R2-D2 as an old married couple . I was really hoping that Ackbar might say "Maybe it's a trap!"

    I'd forgotten about Harrison wishing that! Ahh well my brother saw a picture someone had taken from the movie theatre of the scene where Han dies - the moment the lightsabre went through him. He saw the movie several days after me so he kept asking me if it was true or not; he didn't want to believe it!


    My goodness, I got so carried away with writing up the Star Wars review last message that I completely forgot to wish you a Merry Christmas then!

    Thank you and I hope you had a Merry Christmas, and are enjoying the holiday

    Ahh I see! Haha I think I remember that happening but I never watched it.

    Yeah I know some hardcore Musers who have met the band and they've told them it's a bad assumption. It's too bad because so many "rarities" in NA shouldn't be rarities!

    You've seen it right??

    I thought it was fantastic. It did have a lot of homages to the original but in a good way, while still retaining it's own feel. And it really felt like a Star Wars movie.

    Kylo Ren was done really well; I think he was designed the way Anakin should have been. There was lots of symbolism between the good/bad sides of him (like the blue/red lighting on his face before killing Han), and his extertior/interior: he wants to show himself as a harsh, determined, and fearless leader (as he is when masked) but really underneath (unmasked) he's shown as unsure of himself and his beliefs, and full of fear of not living up to Vader. Tons of character development in this first movie alone; I really look forward to where they take him. Killing Han could mean he's fully in the dark side now but Leia is still alive so who knows.

    Rey was great. She was written kinda "too" perfect but they pulled it off well and I thought she was really likeable. I do think she's Luke's daughter. Maybe she was part of the jedi training before Ren destroyed it, and Luke placed her far from danger on Jakku while making her forget; perhaps that's why she could catch on to the Force so fast? Finn was good too, lots of needed comic relief and he's shown as really brave and loyal. Star Wars pulled off some great marketing because I really thought it was Finn that would be the new Force-user thanks to the trailers/posters but it was Rey all along! Also I was skeptical about them trying to push BB-8 as the new R2-D2, but he turned out really loveable.

    It was really sad to see Han go but I understand why they did it. A small part of me was thinking/hoping his son wouldn't kill him but that would have kinda ruined the movie I think. I was disappointed that Leia and Chewie didn't have a moment at the end of the film but ahh well.

    So yeah overall I really loved it and am definitely going to see it again in theaters soon.

    That's a good point, they did announce the tour really late. Yeah, I had a great time . I hear you about the guitar-dropping. At least he didn't do it for the whole song and did play all the guitar solos, but it is really nice having him play the whole time. I agree about UD and Madness - together with Revolt all in a row is a bit much! If only they played SS!

    What's that from?

    Haha maybe I should have brought a sign. It's too bad that CE was played at pretty much every single Euro show but not really at NA shows. I've heard that Muse don't think NA people know pre-Absolution songs well.

    One of the only people dancing to any of the songs, really! My brother and I were definitely most of the energy singing-wise coming from our section of the floor, seemed like it was just us and one other near us that knew the lyrics to all the songs.

    Lining up early went well. In fact, too well... there were barely 10 people in line by 4pm at my gate. I have no idea where everyone was. I'm used to dozens of people lining up by noon! Also it didn't seem like any VIP people had floor tickets, or maybe there weren't many of them... I was able to get a great spot at the barrier. Muse's performance was great; the 360 stage worked a lot better than I expected and they made sure to play to both sides evenly. The visuals were amazing as usual, and I'm always happy with whatever setlist they pick (Matt could sing the phone book and I'd be happy!). Of course I would have loved if they played CE or mixed up the setlist from other tour dates but there were still some nice surprises; like I wasn't expected USoE at all so that was pretty great. Unfortunately the audience seemed pretty dead except for a few groups of people around the arena. Of course there was cheering at the end of songs, a few shout-outs to the band, but to think that I was at barrier and actually had space to stretch my legs behind me and take a few steps back because the second row wasn't even moving in? My group was going crazy the whole set but it seemed like most people barely moved. That was disappointing.

    Ahh exams... I need to start focusing on those. Hope your studies are going well! Best of luck on exams.

    I've definitely had that happen to me quite a few times. Similarly with Guiding Light, and Revolt which is definitely not the best but is SO catchy.

    That's true . I'll look up Ex Machina. Almost on winter break so it's great timing! I wasn't the biggest fan of Gravity but it did ignite a lot of interest in space films.

    I guess I was told wrong, because one of my friends just got 10 (the maximum number he could get) a few days ago. He asked everyone who wanted one first-come-first-serve so I got one. Planning on lining up really early on the day of the movie to get good seats. I've heard the stage setup is actually pretty good (at least for the American batch of tour dates; Mexico's was more of a preliminary setup?). I'm worried about the talk of VIP people getting first dibs at the GA spots, since they get in before everyone else; I'm planning on getting to the arena in the morning to line up for barrier but it would be disappointing if the whole front row was already taken up. Haha I can't help but look at the setlists! I'm pretty happy with them so far. Of course, for the songs that seem to be getting switched out every now and then I've got some preferences. Like I'd love to hear Citizen Erased which hasn't been played at all the shows.

    Gotham is now on hiatus for the winter so it's a great time to catch up . Flash and Arrow have both been good so far. Glad you're enjoying it!

    That's fair. Yeah readings for classes are extremely time-consuming . Heh, yeah, the Mars stuff was a lot more enjoyable. I was surprised about the swearing too! Unfortunately sci-fi gets ignored so often except for things like special effects and sound-mixing. However I'm really glad to see space movies reaching broader audiences, through movies like Interstellar and The Martian. I'm hoping it'll somehow ignite some more interest in space studies as a whole! (says the possibly biased astrophysics student, but yeah )

    Ahh, that's too bad. And wow, I didn't know about the South America prices. Muse tickets for the concert I'm going to were about $90 after taxes for the most expensive option, which is $70 in USD (yes our dollar sucks right now )

    Thanks. Being at the barrier will be painful, but worth it. Nice! Glad you got those tickets. For big movies like the new Star Wars and the last Harry Potter movie I like to go to my local theatre for opening night. Not the best quality theatre but it has a great community atmosphere. Unfortunately tickets aren't on sale there until December 11th... hopefully I get in line early enough to get on. I'll also have been waiting in line for the Muse concert the day before for like 12 hours

    Have you been caught up on Gotham? I think this season has been a huge improvement on the last one.

    You definitely should. Not sure if you've read the book, but it sounds really good too. I understood some of the science, but only some . My thesis supervisor who's been a consultant for a lot of sci-fi shows said it was pretty good science. How was Sicario? It's gotten great reviews, and I like Emily Blunt a lot. I'm planning on seeing it when I can.

    Damn, sorry to hear about the bad timing. Have you made a decision yet?

    Just bought tickets for the Vancouver concert this morning during presale. Thank goodness it doesn't conflict badly with finals for me, though some of the others I'm going with (at the moment) aren't so lucky. I'm curious to see how the setup is in the centre of the arena now, instead of on the traditional stage at the front.

    Your dogs qualify

    That's awesome!

    I was given a pre-screening pass for the Martian and saw it last night. It was fantastic. It had a great level of laughs through the whole thing without making it overpowered, had good science and was really tense at some points (not predictable). I'd see it again!

    Darn :\ might still be worth it though, who knows when they'll be back!

    Yeah Reading is awesome value for all the bands you could see. Yeah the camping is a bit iffy, I think. When I walked by the grounds on the way to the stages there were beer bottles and party cups everywhere - and I mean EVERYWHERE. It's a very loud, young crowd. That being said, I've heard some areas are better than others. The different camping areas are different colours, and one of them (I think the white-camp) was meant for families, so that one is meant to be a lot quieter.

    Oh man, the more I listen to The Globalist the more I love it. It's become my favourite song on the album. Also, guilitly I actually love Revolt

    Unfortunately no, it was a bit too expensive to get there by bus and I didn't have a car. Oh well! The amusement park in Vancouver here is open a little longer so maybe I'll just have to settle with that instead haha. That's a big list of movies, a lot of which I haven't heard of. I'll look them up. Glad you've got a lot to look forward to!

    I think you're right; it makes sense and it really is strange to announce dates so late if they really are going to be here within the next few months.

    My 2011 experience at Reading was a lot of fun, though I wasn't one of the weekend campers so I can't comment about that experience (it would definitely be interesting though!). It's a neat atmosphere and has so many great bands playing, your bound to find out some new music!

    I enjoyed all the previous ones, so I'm sure I'll like it. Thanks! Having a nice time so far, very relaxing. Might try to get to the old Six Flags park that's about 2 hours out of Amsterdam; been a long time since I've been on big roller coasters . Ehh, well JW was just as you said, a decent mindless summer film. To be honest I'm getting a bit tired of seeing Chris Pratt. Only movies I'm looking forward to now for the the rest of the year are The Martian and of course Star Wars.

    Ahh yeah, those are so bad

    Same, I'm still surprised they haven't made any announcements yet, not even anything past some extremely vague comments here and there! I heard about the UK tour too. I really wonder where they will fit in the US tour, and if it'll be extensive (i.e. come to Vancouver ). Revolt? Interesting choice.
