  1. Does the ‘A-Wing’ aka A-Fighter in Return of the Jedi ever jump to/from hyperspace on screen?

In the shot where the fleet jumps to hyperspace, five A-Wings are seen jumping. They are very blurry though.

If you think about it, it’s pretty weird that all the fighters go to lightspeed separately and not inside the capital ships.

It wouldn’t look as exciting or lend it the feel of a last desperate assault with everything they’ve got.

Of course I meant realistically speaking, not cinematically.

Here’s two questions I had:

  1. is the battle station in “Return of the Jedi” ever actually referred to as the ‘Death Star’? I know it’s obviously modeled on the first one, but just the same two ships of the same class can have different names.

  2. Does the ‘A-Wing’ aka A-Fighter in Return of the Jedi ever jump to/from hyperspace on screen?

Have you actually seen the movie? Death Star is mentioned like 30 times and probably half of it is from Ackbar’s speech where he repeats it even in the same sentences.

kk650's Regraded Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi V2 (blanket yellow tint removed from blu-ray)
Time

Guys, taste it. It isn’t snow, it’s salt.

I agree with others, blue push is a little too aggressive.

And I have to say, that first shot looks so green screen… When I watched the final “duel” for the second time, them standing on the desert looked so fake I couldn’t believe. There was no feel of vastness or space at all.

Rogue One UAR: anyone interested?

Good job with the testclip. Can you make a version without the opening crawl?

Thansk!

Of course, I could make a “plain” version, simply UAR, no added crawl, no color correction etc. - even if I think it will be a bit boring… 😄

I’d be interested in that, if it also includes the original audio. Maybe it’s my mistake, but I thought this was preserving all the image possible, but it seems this may be more of a fan edit.

The Last Jedi Digital/Blu-Ray Release: NOT Theatrical Cut?
Time

Forceboat said:

I wouldn’t be surprised at all if the end credits music in the film was different from the one on the soundtrack. For some reason, there has been this long-standing thing about changing the end credits in every single Star Wars film, with the exception of A New Hope (the end credits on both the film and the soundtrack are the same; unless you count the Special Edition’s film end credits, which wound up having sections repeated because of the added credits). Boggles the mind. Oh well, that just creates for us a sort of bonus track, doesn’t it?

I don’t remember the PT soundtracks other than ROTS, which had longer version on the soundtrack, but I’m pretty sure TESB and ROTJ have the same music on the soundtracks that are in the films?

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

Having seen The Last Jedi for the second time after not being sure if I liked it or not for the first time, I hate to say that I do not like this film. Seeing it again just showed its problems more and while I really wanted to like these, I have to say the ST isn’t for me, just like the prequels. While it has its moments that actually are pretty good, there are stuff that are cringeworthy, even PT level. Meh. Of course I’ll go see Episode IX but I couldn’t care less what happens, they could all just die and it wouldn’t matter one bit.

John Williams says IX will be his last.

I’m a huge fan of R1’s score and think it is on par with the Williams’ ones. In fact it’s better than AotC, but imo worse than the rest. haven’t listened to TLJ enough to have an opinion on that compared to the rest but yeah, Giacchino is pretty awesome.

and I’m glad Mr. Williams decided to go out like that, and not by natural causes, as the latter would’ve been pretty tragic. this way he goes out with style, having scored the (entire?) episodic saga.

If the saga didn’t end with III, it’s going to last until the end of time 😉

You know, I would’ve thought the same, but with how much they seem to be expanding the non-episodic side of things (standalone anthology films, Rian’s film trilogy, Benioff & Weiss’ film series, Filoni’s various animated series, and now Jon Favreau’s live action TV series), they’ve got plenty of content and room to expand to either ditch episodes beyond IX entirely, or sit on it for at least a decade before they do X-XII or beyond.

Cue in Daisy after 40 years. 😃

‘Mark Hamill gives advice to young girl afraid to wear ‘Star Wars’ shirt to school’…

Would have been cool for a girl to wear a Star Wars shirt 30 years ago and don’t know why that would have changed. Good on Hamill.

I remember 20 years ago it wasn’t cool even for boys.
