Tad Williams' Message Board

Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- 'God damn it, you've got to be kind.'
-    Kurt Vonnegut, 1922-2007

Welcome to the message board for tadwilliams.com. All comments are welcome, whether kudos or brickbats. However, please bear in mind that Tad would like this to be a friendly, civil message board, at least in the relations between users. We reserve the right to remove postings, or even ban postings, from anyone who crosses the boundary of reasonable taste. Basically, you can argue vigorously with someone, but watch your language, okay? We have a lot of young readers as well as grown-ups, so please show them some respect.

But the main requirement here is: have fun.

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

The Last Jedi was one of the trailers for  Alien: Covenant,  which I saw on Sunday last weekend.  One of the scenes  in the trailer showed what looked like Imperial Walkers in the snow.  If this is so, expect Luke Skywalker to say to Kylo Ren, aka Ben Solo, aka Ben Skywalker: "Ben, I am your father!".

Haha! Then what? Han Solo's corpse gets frozen in carbonite?

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

That could be a reasonable assumption Firsfron!  At any rate, if there are elements of The Empire Strikes Back in The Last Jedi, it will not surprise me.

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

They could do worse than emulate The Empire Strikes Back, IMO the best Star Wars film.

Have to agree with you on that one. Although I did like Rogue One.
