Good one! I just shake my head sadly at that bit on the ROTS DVD, where they go on how they “fixed” the flaws of the original mask.

It goes without saying that Vader’s original mask/look in A New Hope didn’t need fixing at all! I can’t stand Vader’s look at the end of Revenge of the Sith. There’s just no character or charm to it at all, it’s just off!

Rey should get an orange or yellow one, that would be good. Like Yun in Dark Forces II. The whole toy line thing is weird and amusing though, like they kept getting it wrong in new ways. I think RetroBlasting did a bit on them.

Or maybe even a rainbow-colored one. Seriously though the colors of the lightsabers should be limited.

There’s also multiple instances (first shown, I think, in ROTS when Yoda is chopping up clones outside the Temple) of a character throwing a lightsaber, the blade impaling a victim, and the saber staying in place just like a sword or other physical object would, rather than falling to the ground and partially bisecting the victim.

When watching TFA, during the scene on the bridge, I had the thought about how a normal saber would have just cleanly impaled someone, but Ren’s saber was continually sparking random bits of plasma up inside Han’s torso, burning the rest of his insides as it was held there.

And now I’ll never be able to watch TFA without imaginig hundreds of holes being melted through Han’s organs during that scene…

Whenever I watch Han’s death in TFA I think back to how it should’ve been in a much different i.e. better Return of the Jedi.

So, you want a movie about how Darth Vader gets dressed after a bath? And Bobba Fett is involved somehow?
Sounds… great. 😐

I never said that. I was merely passing along the info of how there was a scene of Vader cut out of Rogue One where he is getting his suit put back on. You sound like you need way more sleep or something.

Rogue Zero - What was changed, reshot, etc in Rogue One?

Imperial Drama and Eadu

  • Darth Vader was going to talk with Krennic aboard the Death Star. It’s possible these scenes were replaced with Tarkin.

I believe that in the original cut of Rogue One both Tarkin and Vader was going to gang up on Krennic after Vader using the force took Krennic’s gun away from him after he drew his gun on Tarkin after both men got into it with one another. And of course Vader’s big scene at the end of the original cut was going to be him force choking Krennic to death after Krennic survived the Death Star blast on the planet of Scarif and was then brought aboard The Devastator. I’ve also seen in a behind-the-scenes video of the actor who plays K-2SO that both he and Captain Andor was originally going to get shot and killed by Krennic right outside of the building that housed the satellite dish. There also was no Jyn in prison scene, Ring of Kafrene scene, marching Bodhi Rook to Saw Gerrera’s men in the early morning hours on Jedha scene and no busting Jyn out of prison on Wobani scene in the original cut of Rogue One.

What Didn't You Like About ROTS?
Time

What I didn’t like about Revenge of the Sith is what I didn’t like about all 3 of the Star Wars prequels and that was all of the blue screen. On the other hand the late, great Sir Christopher Lee was indeed the very best thing about the prequel trilogy.

He was saying that when the EU let’s the Jedi do crazy stupid things with their powers, it opens up silly plot holes in the movies. So the Jedi should never have such crazy powers.

I dunno why he couldn’t just say that instead of trying to make you look dumb. Not very nice. Or successful.

The force’s abilities are inconsistent throughout the movies. Just watch the cinemasins videos on the Star Wars movies. There needs to be limitations on what the force can do.

Are The Prequels That Bad?
Time

The Star Wars prequels are okay. Remember children that the original trilogy had some clunky ass dialogue and acting in it as well. And Luke and Leia being brother and sister is pretty ridiculous and gross.

Otherwise certain people, you know who you are, will post things on forums like, “Why didn’t Vader just nab the Death Star plans when he was in that hallway at the end of Rogue One?” when they know full well that while said scene was going on he had a dozen Rebel Fleet Troopers trying to shoot him. You know come to think of it an infinitely better question would be is why didn’t Vader using the force in A New Hope sniff out the Rebel’s hidden fortress? When the force can do anything like corral a ship that has it’s engines on and is moving forward the writers of these movies opens up a can of worms and plot holes.

When has the Force been shown to corral a moving ship in the movies?

I never said that the force has corralled a moving ship in the movies now did I?! You misunderstood my post which was quite a simple one to be honest with you.

Hey that reminds me how frevious (was it frevious?) undid his like of TFA because a YouTube review told him to undo it.

It wasn’t a negative review of The Force Awakens that told me to hate it, it was my own mind that told me to do so. Rogue One swept me off of my feet and I’ve just left TFA in the dust. Episode 7 is just such a redundant clunker.

I want the new Han Solo and Chewbacca to cameo when Ben walks into the cantina.

I don’t want Vader…too much is a bad thing. I want characters we either haven’t seen before, or animated ones into live action. I do want to see a better looking Bossk, prefer him or Dengar over Boba Fett again.

Darth Maul would be cool, not sure it would happen though.

Darth Maul died at the end of The Phantom Menace.

Supposedly he was brought back in the Clone Wars or something. Which is really stupid but there you go.

Yeah I heard that Darth Maul came back as some sort of cyborg tarantula looking creature after losing his bottom half. Really, really stupid indeed.

Oof that sounds much worse. The best part of that scene is the abject terror of the Rebels…doing that would suck the emotion right out of it.

I guess what I meant to say is that the Vader rampage scene in slow-mo with Adagio for Strings playing would be a fun alternative way of doing that scene that someone could come up with on YouTube. I do need to make myself more clear.

Darth Maul died at the end of The Phantom Menace. The new Han Solo and Chewbacca being in the cantina on Tatooine when Ben walks in would be so embarrassingly corny and Vader doesn’t have to meet up with Obi-Wan in the Kenobi movie just a cameo would be fine. 😄

Wouldn’t it have been really cool if Vader’s rampage scene had been in slow-mo with Adagio for Strings playing? I’m surprised no one on YouTube has come up with that kind of an idea and posted a video of it.

Yep, seeing a film in theaters 6 times obviously translates to “I don’t care for it.” Everyone knows that.

I loved The Force Awakens when it first came out and I really wish that I can undo that love. That flick is a tired rehash that gets more and more boring and redundant on repeat viewings whereas Rogue One keeps getting better with repeat viewings. It’s as simple as that.

Time

An anthology film about Vader would most definitely be an excellent idea and maybe have Boba Fett in it somehow. We could see Vader in all new ways like without his cape on or getting suited up after a dip in the ol’ bacta tank. Rumor has it that there was a scene cut in Rogue One that showed Vader getting dressed after his time in the bacta tank. It goes without saying that a Vader movie would most assuredly make a ton of money.

I’ve seen the force awakens about 8 times, 6 at the theater and 2 at home on the ol’ Blu-ray. I haven’t seen it in quite a while nor do I really care to. I’ve seen Rogue One in the theater 20 times (Best movie-going experience in my lifetime.) and countless times more on Blu-ray and it just keeps getting better every time I see it! 😄 That pretty much sums up what I think about both films. 😄
