    The website Indie Revolver has the scoop on what they claim is the newly designed Stormtrooper helmet from Star Wars: Episode VII. At a quick glance they look very similar – both are molded with white plastic and have alike eye holes and nose/mouth vents – but you can see many differences when compared to the classic helmet. Here is the rumored new design;

    Why would storm troopers still be around 30 years later?

    I know it made money, I'm talking about the quality of the story. Ask anyone if the movie was great, even rabid fans, they will be hard pressed to give the story thumbs up.

    I have faith in JJ . Listening to Kevin Smith's review of the footage and set pieces he has seen sounds like they are heading in the right direction.

    Can we look forward to horrible racist stereotypes in the next movie?

    The universe is racist, Robin.


    I just hope to God that Jar Jar Binks has been elevated to Emperor so it reflects current US politics.

    In the EU books (almost all of which has been negated by the pending movies), it's like the fall of Rome. Once the Empire fell, the fleet dispersed and several surviving admirals tried to take command with the hope of reestablishing the Empire. So Storm Troopers are around for decades.

    The Thrawn trilogy is worth a read.

    Hollywood does a great job of ruining the past.

    Just ask Robocop, TMNT, Total Recall ..... I'm too sad to actually write them all.

    The Ewoks almost messed up the first trilogy, but because Empire is so bad ass and the main Jedi plot is riveting it never did.

    They will probably bring back the Ewoks, but this time the male leader will have a husband and will be applauded by the Jedi for opening up gay marriage to the Ewok population.

    I kind of liked the Robocop and Total Recall remakes. They weren't as good as the originals, but they were decent for what they were.

    Phantom Menace wasn't horrible outside of the kid that couldn't act, midichlorians and Jar Jar Binks, who was featured in some of the Clone Wars cartoons, which I found to be pretty much awesome.

    Eh, Robocop sucked past the first 15 minutes, right up to the end. Total Recall was nothing to write home about. Actually, this kicked my memory that I enjoyed the remake of Fright Night ( it was shit, but was ok shit )

    Did you see Dredd? I thought that movie was fantastic.

    Fright Night was better than the original.

    Yes, the first time I kept hoping it would go all XXX with the chick, the second time I watched it I actually saw the movie. It was fun, but to be honest, anything would have been better than the Stallone original :)
