    First off, anything with an accordion.
     
    Whew, that's outta the way.
     
    Hmm, hard to nominate one, but let's start with The Lady in Red by Chris De Burgh.  An annoying, droning pop ballad played constantly in the 80s.  Sung in a whiny, strained voice that sounds like nails on a chalkboard.

    Right now I’m listening to Buckaroo Banzai as I surf the net and I got to thinking that the ‘80’s might have been Hollywood’s last gasp at creating true heroes until the recent surge of Superhero movies. 
       Well, neurons started misfiring and I started to imagine an American “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”.  So far I’ve got Buckaroo leading Remo Williams, Meteor Man, Buffy (the original) vampire slayer and an American (Highlander style) immortal.  
       The only criteria’s would be original movie characters from the ‘80’s (So no Batman or Greatest American Hero) and no dark or “anti” heroes. (So no Professional or Hackers)   Anybody have any candidates?

    This is just one man's opinion, and you could disagree with me. After watching "The Last Jedi", my expectations were lowered. In my opinion, TLJ was worse than "Revenge of the Sith". RotS is a bad movie, just not as episodes 1 & 2. Overall, the fun parts outnumbered the non-fun parts. I wish it was as good as Avengers: Endgame, but that did not happen. I disagree with the movie critics, and I give a slight recommendation for others to watch this movie.

    Well I bowed out of four color, and much prefer tailored  worlds.  As a creative, I find tight limits is often a stimulus for creativity.  Kitchen sink worlds tend to breed a lack of originality.

    Whiz Kid: Hyper kinetic thief and prankster, Whiz Kid seems to dance back and fourth across the hero/villain line as quickly as he does everything else. And for the same reason: lulz. This poster boy for reckless irresponsible youth is up for almost anything to slake his thirst for thrills and amusement. He's not violent, however, and doesn't try to kill or greatly injure his opponents (or the authorities) instead using his speed, agility and wicked but childish sense of humor to escape, evade and harass them instead. His juvenile attitude is understandable as Whiz Kids is actually 11 yrs old. His hyped up metabolism has him the build and development of a boy several years older.  Whiz kid is a frequent friendly rival/partner of the young Speedster heroine Velocity. To be clear, she is NOT his girlfriend. She is his friend who is a girl.

    Iron Maus: Armored political statement. Despite his comedic appearance, Iron Maus is quite serious in his war against corporate dominance and its stranglehold on many endeavors especially the creative fields. And his (Iron Maus is presumed male but no one has seen his true appearance). armor is no joke either and is easily a match for some of the most formidable high tech battlesuits available.

    For a time, Shaman joined the international superteam "Unity" and changed his costume to reflect their more modern (and to some degree paramilitary) mind set.

    For what it is worth, a friend of mine who is an atheist, once mentioned a similar realization.  Almost like humanity is hardwired to "I got to worship SOMETHING" whether it makes sense of not.

    Because it will take all three plus a discount to make me even consider paying money for this movie. I haven't been the target audience since the original trilogy. The prequels used up all my nostalgia and these sequels have done nothing to draw me back.

    If I remember right, Yoda's force-ghost burned the texts, and the attempted murder was Kylo Ren's "certain point of view". Jedi and Sith are by definition unreliable narrators, though the Sith tend to be a bit more honest about their manipulations.
