Another solid one. Really any of the Harry Potter villains. Umbridge, too.

What a fantastic performance over all those films Rickman gives. Let him once in New York. I was terrified of him.

Almost all of those have the added ability of a book to draw from though. Is that cheating, do you think? That the audience (or at least a large portion) has that shortcut? Or is it cheating because the writers of the script have that same shortcut?

I got to meet Rickman twice (once at a bar at the theater where he was directing a show). He's got a hell of a presence for sure. I was super intimidated. But he was a really down to earth and open person, too. And really funny.

I love it when Kevin Smith talks about working with him because he makes him sound like a great person, not like the majority of people you hear about in Hollywood.

This is your game, man. What do you think? I have no problem with those answers given the question you asked. But if you'r looking for something more specific, that's fine. Just give us the parameters.

That's an older theory. It's been around for a while now and it never ceases to make me laugh.


All possible theories have been floated. If Snoke ends up being anything other than "just a guy" someone's going to be able to claim that they knew all along.

:lol:

True.


Unless he's a girl.

he and rey are clones of anakin. i called it.

There's been a theory out for a while that Rey is reincarnated Anakin.

No, I think they're all great answers, they just all but one or two are from a book. I'm just wondering if that gives those villains a 'boost' in that they don't have to be explained as much.

As an alternative, look at Marvel movies. They have terrible villains for the most part, that's the biggest knock against them in most reviews, and they're all from books. The difference is they all have different writers.

That's awesome. Same almost. He looked at me like I was a squirming worm on his shoe. But 100% agree on his presence. Some people just have a mad almost tangible energy about them. He was one of those people.

Agree on Agent Smith. Solid choice.

Enjoy your write-ups on Kylo Ren, but when he killed Han it didn't feel like a son killing his dad, so that's where I struggle with that. Think it would be more interesting if they flipped Ren to a good guy in TLJ.

Adam Driver did say it's going to be unexpected. I think he was speaking in relation to kylo so let's see.

Maybe Snoke is the reincarnated Anakin and Rey is an X23 clone of Obi-Wan.

My prophesy has changed. It's not just me that's not gonna make it to see the last Jedi. It's all of us. Earths about to flip it's magnetic poles or some shit.
