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.

Episode VIII Discussion *SPOILER THREAD*
Time

I’m still hoping that when Luke talks about raw potential he isn’t talking about Ben Solo, but rather Leia and Snoke is talking about Rey. Kylie Ren is a bit of a push over if you ask me.

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 😄

STAR WARS EPISODE I: Dawn of War <strong>(NEW TRAILER)</strong>

Does anyone have any suggestions for music to use after the crawl down? I’m having a hard time finding one that fits.

EDIT:
The next preview will be with the completion of the opening scene.

Looking at this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NottMSxCPHg at around 2:00 mark you get a point of mystery which swiftly turns to action as they escape the TIEs which is sort of what the Queen’s ship is doing also. So if you can find that part of the ESB score you might find something useful. BTW voice wise I was recently in a works promotional film and someone said I sounded like Neil Gaiman so if you know what he sounds like and want something similar drop me a line by all means.

The Lyrics are anti social-mobility. Poor people are poor, rich people are rich. Keep your hands off my stuff and none of that redistribution of wealth nonsense.

Time

Return of the Jedi is a lamentably awful ending to what the first two started and then the PT happened. I didn’t want the majority of these films to be so bad. I wanted more good to balance things more. The Force Awakens had the characters right but the story was too derivative. Rogue One was pretty good. Fan edits have improved both. I would like a final final episode of the numbered series. Something more satisfying than the awfulness of ROTJ. So I don’t mind. I have had such a difficult romance with the series that I just wish it well but I don’t think I want it’s babies anymore.

The Significance of British Accents in Star Wars

I just interpreted it as an effort to show more diversity in the Star Wars galaxy, which I thought was a worthwhile pursuit. Chirrut and Baze were the first non-Nemoidian Asian accents, both in R1.

Surferdude Fed is to my knowledge the first non-Asian Nemodian.

The prediction thread
Time

The Amazing Criswell predicts :

By the year 1984 all humans on the surface of the world will own three things, a flying car is one. The other two will be fully functioning and interchangeable. Both will be over-used and not mentionable in an organ such as this.

In the 22nd century humans will be seen as organic appendices by their sentient and supergenius Telly-Cars. In 21st Century America the poorest people will be fat and the richest people will be thin.
