Well the Force Awakens was a remake of the original Star Wars, Young isloated individual seeks out older more experienced warrior (Luke & Ben, Rey & Han) blows up planet killer football. Last Jedi, tries to do Empire, good guys in real trouble as bases are cut apart, main part of story in space & Jedi training, big battle of white (snow, salt) against walking things (Empire start, Last Jedi end).
Episode 9, return to stars home world to settle debt & big battle on Sand(why can I see Simon Peggs character getting it), trip to see Jedi masters home, blow up planet eating space football...
Also Han shot first it provides a better arc of how his character goes from bad guy, to rebel, to nice guy...
Yeah Donald Glover was a good choice for Lando 'the early years' Ahh thank you I was trying to remember her name. I mean 'Mother of Dragons' was easier to workout rather than Thing Clarke who was in Game of Thrones!
Did you put off watching initially for some reason, or just didn't feel like it? After The Last Jedi, I sort of completely lost interest in the franchise. I've never watched Solo, and never felt like watching. And I still don't. I used to think this indifference would fade with time, but it still hasn't. Wonder if I'll even feel like watching Episode 9 when it's out.
I felt the same, It was a classic meet at the flat go out for a meal & drinks as it was a friends birthday. It was raining and not very inviting outside weather wise so time needed to wasted going through the Prime account of my flat mate we found Solo and watched it, retored my faith some what...like Rouge One but the end was not as obvious (the two stand alone movies I think have been better than the sequels)...
I think I need some help in navigating the incredibly huge sea of web technologies that have appeared in the last years - it has been a while since I had the time to actually study newish frameworks and products.
My job consists mostly of LoB applications, so until now I have found myself very comfortable with ASP.net Web Forms, WCF for AJAX interactions, a little bit of jQuery and ADO.net for database access - trying to keep it simple on the client side and have most of the work done on the server side. To achieve a 'modern' look I use the DevExpress Web Forms controls, and that's pretty much it.
It feels, however, like I'm missing something. Everybody is talking about different approaches but they all seem like huge steps backwards to me. I can't honestly believe people are more productive this way.
- ASP.net MVC? Yeah, just put some server side code alongside HTML. Back in my days we called that Classic ASP, and we hated it. Bonus hell points: video tutorials.
- Data binding? Yeah, bind everything to a EF context, you get IQueryables, it's fast! Oh, you need to call an API? Tough luck... no data binding for you. Back to ObjectDataSources!
- Bah! HTML5 and JS is all you need! Just use server side code for your APIs and learn to love
This is becoming a rant and I didn't really want that. I really think this is my fault. I just don't know where to start - and be productive with a simple but complete web app. I like having web services for application logic. I am ready to ditch Web Forms. I just don't want to lose my time again and again. Do you have any suggestion?
Thanks in advance
