STAR WARS: EP VI -RETURN OF THE JEDI &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>NOW IN PRODUCTION</strong>
Time

I’ve suggested before that the barge should snap in the fashion of the Titanic but adding some animated falling figures would sell the explosion better. The barge seem utterly empty by the time the thing blows which doesn’t seem possible even if some of the court made it onto the sand.

For the throne room I’m not sure if some Ridley Scott style directional lighting would be possible though those windows.

It’s already be suggested that the Endor moon be visible through the windows which would provide some reflected light. There is also the native star and with all that swordplay smashing up electrical equipment there may be a little bit of smoke in that room which could make for some interesting light effects if someone was prepared to spend the time animating them.

You’ve never heard of Murder on the Orient Express??? Dame Agatha Christie’s most famous book? Don’t watch the new movie, read the book and then watch David Suchet’s version.

If it is true, you do indeed live under a rock.

I prefer the Sidney Lumet 1974 version. It has a cast to die for and as much as I like Suchet the television version adds much to the book which isn’t needed. Another version wouldn’t hurt though. Look how many versions of Hound of the Baskervilles exist. Rathbone’s version is still my favorite but I love the Jeremy Brett one too. The Cushing version is fun but all that added nonsense with the spider is a bit of a let down.

Blade Runner is niche? Apparently I don’t have that many friends, because most people I know like Blade Runner.

There’s nothing worse than a niche you can’t scratch.

OP has a stylish avatar image 😄

Thank you!

I Photoshopped the image for the wishlist thread and now I see it all over YouTube and WordPress. I really get a kick out of seeing them. The most used is probably the little guy from another place wearing green in the green room. When Paul Anderson fell out with David Lynch it just went everywhere. It just shows the reach of OT.com 🙂

In a flashback (Deckard meeting Rachel) we find out why Leia and Han split up. RACHEL: “Do you like our Porg?” HAN : “Is it real?” RACHEL: “of course not” HAN: “is it expensive?” Cut to ToysRUs advert.

Bingowings in the past you must travel to the future to write to remind yourself that you have to get up early and go to the office and do the job you haven’t applied for yet.

How do you feel about the saga continuing without Palpatine?

I don’t really care that it has continued, but I think the fact that both movies so far have been so dependent on iconic SW characters, imagery, and plot lines shows that there isn’t enough material for there to be a “saga”.

Sorry but that’s like saying the James Bond isn’t James Bond if he drives fast women and goes to bed with a sports car.

RE :Self Reporting, I’m pretty sure if you sent a PM to a moderator requesting to be banned your wishes would be granted 😃

Any Hooo…
This is as much for AR:SE as for ROTJ:R, what with Rogue One having very polished reflective floors in key rooms is it possible or desirable to do something similar for Death Star interiors in other films?
The floors are quite reflective in both films but not to the same mirror effect of Rogue One and I quite liked the effect. It makes the rooms look other worldly and obsessively sterile and buffed. So many OT Death Star sets have dents and scratches and scuff marks. Jedi has some very tatty cobbled together sets which are kind of forgivable for the Rebels but not so much for the Empire.

Wouldn’t we need actual reflections of EVERYTHING to make the floor reflective?

Not necessarily accurate reflections. There is a loss of resolution with any reflective surface. What it would take would be someone to make a sample of what is already reflected, Create an abstract reconstruction of the reflection with a bit more detail and blend that with a black background and then rotoscope around the existing surface. It wouldn’t be a perfect mirror but it would be closer to the Rogue One look. Though it would also be a lot of hard work 😄
