How Do I Explain "Slave Leia" To My Kids? Any Ideas?
Time

What’s the deal with these recent “children and Star Wars” threads? A lot of current fans were introduced to the franchise when they were lads, and I hardly see any of them telling stories of being traumatized or getting the wrong message out of these PG rated movies.

This is not meant to be a criticism on the posters, mind you, it just boggles the mind to see it brought up all of a sudden.

What is wrong with Attack of the Clones?
Time

While I agree AoTC is the worst SW movie, I wouldn’t consider the factory scene to be the worst overrall. The duel with Grievous is much more tiring and ridiculous.

Introducing Star Wars to young children
Time

The best way to introduce someone who’s never seen Star Wars, is introduce these people through OOT, in whatever format that can be found (Harmy, GOUT, VHS, etc), and neglect to mention anything other Star Wars media. Should children discover the prequels, sequels, and shitquels on their own, you must be prepared. They’ll ask about them. The initial response must be to tell them those movies are boring, try to make them as unnatractive as possible. If they still ask to see them, show it to them, but try to achieve rejection, without explictitly forbiding them boys to watch those movies. Mind you, avoid traumatizing them, as that’d be bad parenthood.

A good strategy, for instance, picture the text about “Trade Taxations of the Trade Routes” appearing, use this oportunity to explain the children in detail what taxation is and talk them about the economy. Every time Qui-gon says something stupid, you can make a quip like “children, don’t be like this man”.

If that doesn’t work, try unleashing a disgusting hodor around the house, so they’ll relate the experience of watching those films to such unpleasantness. Serving a foul meal when they watch the film can also work.

FAN EDIT REQUEST THREAD- Post your dream Fan Edits Here!
Time

Alt text

I know there have been some edits of The Lord of the Rings, which seek to alter Jackson’s trilogy into something more in line with Tolkien’s book(s). However, something just as interesting would be reconstruct the films’ original cuts, before the pick-ups took place and the storyline was altered. It’s known to us the extended cuts still omit much footage, of which we’ve seen fragments in trailers, featurettes and stills.

While the shooting scripts are nowhere to be found (only transcripts matching the finished films are available), it could be possible, thanks to the clues found in the audio commentaries and liner notes from the OST, to try and put the available scenes back into their original sequence. Explainatory cards and subtitles could fill in any unavailable footage.

Should the Prequels be more included into the franchise going forward?
Time

No, I don’t think they should, it should be avoided. To be fair, the argument that there are fans who grew up with them holds no water. If people were born under a dictatorship, would that justify them prefering the dictator to an elected leader?

If you ask me, future films shouldn’t be afraid to contradict content from the prequels, or even the expanded universe. Only the OT must be considered untouchable.

What is your Star Wars?
Time

-Special edition featurette where Lucas and his crew put their feet in their mouths and admit the whole affair is nothing but an ego project, where the original trilogy was used as a testing ground for the prequels.
-Irving Kershner’s cameo in said featurette.
-Convention where Lucas said Star Wars was originally envisioned as “The Trageduh of Darth Vadah”.
-The Star Wars Ring Theory.
-The notion that them prequels were smarter than the original trilogy because they dealt with political machinations.

I’m still not acostumed to Dinseywars, but I’m sure their films will age gracefully.

Anakin ghost old vs young
Time

How come there’s 5 pages of people discussing this change? It is not objetively true that Hayden should never have been inserted into the film?

Rogue One * <em>Spoilers</em> * Thread
Time

I liked Rogue One a lot, more so than TFA. Some random thoughts:
-Che Gueva… err, Saw Gerrera is called an extremist but doesn’t do anything worse than the rebels in the OT, or the Jedi in the PT. No, the tentacle monster doesn’t count.
-The comedy mostly worked.
-I don’t think the fanservice/nostalgia factor was as excesive as others suggested.
-I liked how Tarkin basically took the Death Star for himself.
-CGI Tarkin fooled me. Cartoon Leia did not.
-I could have done without Vader.
-“Don’t choke on your aspirations” is an objectively stupid line.
-Connects beautifully with ANH… only in a clinical B follows A manner. I will get into that when I can properly express it.
-As far as Edwards’ filmography goes, this is much better than Godzilla, but nowhere as interesting as Monsters.

The missing Dianoga music
Time

The SE (mis)places it during the extended Mos Eisley reveal. I think the scene works well without any music, much like the Empire duel I’m used to hearing it like that and wouldn’t have it any other way.

What I would consider a worthy extra is a reel that has the edited cues re-instated and/or scenes that were recut to presented in their original form with their unedited cues (like the Sail Barge assault).
