Re: New life to the Death Star
"Simply what you get when you cast an 80-year-old man in your movie and ask him to move."

A heavy prop door crashing down on a 20-year-old's ankle might have done the same damage as on an 80-year-old's (or 71-year-old's, as I believe the actor is 71).

My 90-year-old grandmother was still growing her own food, which, as you may or may not know, is physically hard work, the demands of which are probably beyond the physical limits of most 35-year-old, desk-bound programmers. So, so much for the age argument.

@jastro- Well, fortunately he only has to live up to Lucas, the Lucas that gave us episodes one through three. :)

Re: New life to the Death Star
After LOST, I stopped trusting JJ Abrams and his ability to tell a story.

I got it back after Star Wars.

 

But, JJ is no Spielberg, and Spielberg is no Kubrick.

Pretty good stories
There are some pretty good stories in the average IT department, I've found, rivaling Star Trek or Star Wars.

@Dave, not a bad omen. Simply what you get when you cast an 80-year-old man in your movie and ask him to move. Love Harrison Ford, but no more Star Wars of Indiana for him, please!

I say toss Hayden Christensen into the Lego Ewok Village and let him suffer the insufferable.

Re: Well played
@Dave perhaps it's time to recycle some of your old geekend posts to give them new life...garbage to gold and all that. :)

Re: New life to the Death Star
I hope my asking for more interesting rumors from Star Wars isn't to blame for this: http://www.vanityfair.com/vf-hollywood/harrison-ford-star-wars-injury


Harrison Ford hurt his ankle during filming.

Anyone else think it it a bad omen that he hurt it on the door of the Millenium Falcon?
