I’d have Leia die in the bridge explosion and remove her from the rest of the film. I’d remove Yoda. I’d have Luke burn the tree. Sensing Leia’s death would prompt Luke to confront Ren.

I like the idea, but that way you’d lose the beautiful shot of the Crait big ass door closing behind her, or her scene with Luke. And have 2 older characters killed in the same movie could be a bit overkill, but oh well.

Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW

Let’s say I have the SE DVDs, but not the Blu-Ray. Am I still eligible to watch Harmy’s DE? It’s an official release, but not the source.

Nope.

So those who have the Blu-Ray, but not the DVDs, shouldn’t be watching Adywan’s? I think that’s a bit dumb. I think 2004/2011 should count as the “same”, sort of. I own both versions anyway, so I’m good, but still.

Nope.

If they release a 4K version this year, will we all need to buy that in order to continue to have the DEs?

If the DE uses the 4K as the source, I guess yes.

The Last Jedi: Official Review and Opinions Thread ** SPOILERS **

So I watched the first part and 5 minutes of the second part of this “The Lost Jedi”, and while I think some of his ideas would be interesting, some stuff just seems way too stupid to me, such as Poe saying how hot Leia looked in her RotJ bikini or R2 and Chewie telling Rey about stuff from the Clone War.
All in all there is some interesting stuff, but it’s pretty cringy.
There’s this one quote he says though: it’s not all about training to be a Jedi, it’s also about ones own journey to learn to become a Jedi.
To me Rey fails both? More so the first one than the latter though.

I think the original Iron Man is still the best thing the MCU has ever put out. It feels like a real movie made by a few talented people, not some large, calculated, corporate undertaking.

I agree. Iron Man and The Winter Soldiers are definitely my favorites, alongside the first and second Guardians of the Galaxy, and the only ones that I rewatch from time to time. Maybe The Avengers too, but not so much.

Was Ragnarok any good? I ended up not watching that one theatrically, unfortunately. And does anyone know when will the bluray come out?

It was good as an action comedy, but I wasn’t a fan of the complete and utter tonal shift from the first two films.

Thanks for the info!

TFA: A Gentle Restructure

ChainsawAsh said:

Which part?

HAL said he’ll be providing the lossless audio in PCM format as a W64 file (as WAV has a file size limit). If you open the MKV in either mkvtoolnix or tsmuxer, you can add the W64 file and create a new MKV or a BDMV folder with the lossless PCM audio instead of (or in addition to) the Dolby Digital audio.

As for the other part, I can’t get any of HAL’s projects to burn to a Blu-Ray disc and play without errors in my PS4. Other people have had similar issues, but none of the proposed solutions have worked for me. I’m hopeful that the fact that I now have a standalone player (not a game console) will fix the problem for me.

That actually made sense hahaha. Thanks. Hope the Blu-Ray works now, and new awesome addition to your collection I presume. 😄

Episode VIII : The Last Jedi - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

I didn’t mind the weaponization of lightspeed. I think the objects would have to have a logical size in order to be effective (X-Wing + Hyperdrive + Death Star wouldn’t work), and I don’t remember any other occasion where it would’ve been worth to lightspeed yourself into something. Both the Rebel Alliance and the Resistance were always short on resources which would make hyperdriving one ship into something way too costly, a too big of a sacrifice to be worth it.

Thank you guys. It was great rewatching Donnie Darko’s theatrical cut. Maybe in the next few months I’ll try to watch the director’s cut.

Special thanks to ChainsawAsh, that with his profile picture made me want to watch Futurama again and I’ve been having a blast! Thanks!

Luke in exile because he failed at training Han and Leia’s child was straight from Lucas’ outline he sold to Disney in 2012. The biggest difference was, in his outline, that would have been part of the story told in VII, rather than something that happened between VI and VII. Luke would exile himself in VII after a character based on Darth Talon literally seduced Han and Leia’s kid to the dark side with Luke failing at preventing this, then Luke would have to be found by “Kira” (later Rey) in VIII.

Lucas hired Arndt to write VII, but he had a problem with Luke in VII taking too much focus away from the new leads. It was Abrams’ and Kasdan’s idea to make finding Luke the MacGuffin of VII, pushing his appearance to the ending to avoid overshadowing the new leads, which also meant that the fall of Ben Solo had to happen off-screen before VII.

There’s more of Lucas’ ST in the final product than many are claiming, but his VII pretty much got split between the final version of VII and VIII.

Where did you find all this info?

It really seemed like Finn was more than able to destroy the cannon to me. He was still going relatively fast in the cannon’s direction, while all the others turned back, which it in itself is a plot hole (how did Rose even get to him?) and something I noticed upon first viewing.

Hi again. I’d like to thank everyone for the well wishes, and return such wishes, especially to Bingo right now.

Some new developments have come up recently with Phil, which is not his name, but what I will call him for the remainder of this post. I came out to Phil a couple of days ago. Crush notwithstanding, we’ve been good friends for a while and I figured it was okay to tell him. He said he already suspected for a while, which struck me as odd, as all my other irl friends who are currently in-the-know seemed to be surprised by my coming-out. Phil went on to say that he had-and I promise, I’m not making this up-been analyzing my sense of humor for months and reached the conclusion that I wasn’t straight. The next day, I apologized for coming out (I apologize for everything regardless of whether I have any reason to, it’s a thing). He replied by saying, “no, no, this is good!” and gave me a surprisingly enthusiastic smile and thumbs up.

He never said anything about his own sexuality, though. Maybe I’m looking too hard into this out of desperation, but straight guys don’t tend to analyze their bros’ sexuality, right? That isn’t exactly a “no homo” thing to do. Also, a mutual friend told me Phil’s never seemed interested in girls, and they’ve known each other years longer than I have.

So now I just… ¯\ _(ツ)_/¯

I do not know what kind of advice I could give you coffee, but I really hope for the best. What I can tell you is that several friends of mine turned out to be gay, and I had absolutely no idea that they were before they told me. Speaking for myself, it’s not something I find noticeable or particularly try to notice on purpose.

Star Wars Episode III: Labyrinth Of Evil (Finished!)

Hal 9000 said:

The balcony scene isn’t looking too good. It doesn’t work to be placed between Grievous speaking with Palpatine and the nightmare, because Anakin and Padme already should have a rift between them by this point. Which means the only place it can really go in this edit is right after they have their conversation about her being pregnant. However, the transition into the scene is a little awkward since we transition from them to them. And the transition out of the scene is very awkward since there’s no nightmare to dramatically fade/octopus-wipe to.
If it weren’t for the necessary restructuring to meet LOE’s goals, and the basic structure were intact, I would agree with you guys about including it.

That being said, it seems I could at least borrow some of their chuckling to include over another scene, ala NFBisms. What do you guys say to including the necklace scene in Episode I, knowing full well that it never shows up again? (Anyone want to try rotoscoping it around Portman’s neck in the Boleyn footage?)

Here’s the balcony scene to prove I’m not making things up:

To be fair, the payoff of the necklace in the microseries would make it worth it for me. It’s also nice to show that Anakin has some sort of crush on her, which is totally believable.

That’s the point for Poe, that he can now see when a suicide mission is a suicide mission instead of just an opportunity for heroism. The point for Finn is he doesn’t care if it’s a suicide mission or not, as long as he saves the Resistance. The point for Finn isn’t affected by Rose saving him either, because the intention is what matters here.

But my interpretation of the scene is that, had Rose not saved Finn, he would’ve killed himself and succeeded in destroying the weapon and therefore saving everyone/buying them more than enough time. If this was the case, then Rose was very selfish by saving him.

The situation in the end works for every character except for Rose.

Rose is just following through on Poe’s assessment. You could just as easily give that moment to Poe, their intentions are the exact same (and it’s not a selfish act, Rose didn’t “stop him,” she “saved him, dummy”). The reason it’s given to Rose is because that’s her role in the film, the angel on Finn’s shoulder guiding him toward the good. She taught him to become a member of the Resistance, which he follows through on, but he still has more to learn. This is just her next lesson.

Again, it’s obvious the filmmakers’ wanted you to be on Rose’s side here. It’s not something that I thought was an issue when I saw the film, but if you misinterpreted that then I guess they needed to make the pointlessness of Finn’s potential sacrifice clearer.

Their intentions are not the same because Poe was trying to save the most amount of people by calling off the attack.

Rose decided that saving Finn was more important than the rest of the Resistance.

What you’re saying doesn’t make any sense.

Poe: call off the attack, save everyone in the skimmers, let the ram blow open the door
Rose: save Finn (the only skimmer not yet falling back), let the ram blow open the door

The intentions are exactly the same. Poe explicitly orders Finn to fall back. Rose just forces him to.

Rose spells it all out, what’s important in winning the war is saving people.

I can see your point, and it does make sense. But I think that the circumstances are different enough to make their intentions different.

Poe had a plan to try to save everyone. Then he saw that his plan would not only fail in doing so, but it would definitely get all those who were involved in it killed.

He called off the attack hoping that they could still find a way to destroy the weapon and live to fight another day, and in doing so, saving the most amount of lives he possibly could.

Finn then found a way, but it would cost him his life. However, since he’s now willing to give himself to the cause, that’s not a problem anymore. And when he was almost there, about to succeed and save everyone, Rose saved him, spelling certain death to all the rebels that Finn would’ve saved.

The thing is, Finn didn’t “find a way,” he was just following through on the original plan (only with certain death involved). Poe knew exactly what he was doing and told him to stop.

I don’t think that was the original plan, I think they were just desperate and decided to take action. Maybe they thought the guns were operational or something.

But I don’t think anyone would go for a kamikaze mission with only 30 rebels left. So because of this, I think Finn’s sacrifice was his idea and not the original plan, and that’s why I’m not a fan of Rose stopping him from ultimately fulfilling his arc. Argh if this was Episode IX it would’ve been perfect!
