I do agree with you Outbound, I think the Death Star II, Jar Jar, the Ewoks, Starkiller Base were bad ideas. I wish they wouldn’t have gone with them in the first place.

While I do think it is theoretically possible to make Starkiller Base just a base (I would like to see it done), or replace the Death Star II with something else, like a Super Star Destroyer (Snooker is doing it and I’m excited about the finished product), I think the farther we stray away from what we’re given in the films, the more subjective the changes become, which will make it harder to come to a consensus on those changes.

So for a lot of these issues, I try to look at it this way. “How can we make it work better within the story?”

Instead of removing an element entirely, what can we add, trim, change, shift to help improve the positioning of those elements.

I like this quote from the Phantom Editor discussing Jar Jar:

“Removing [Jar Jar] entirely from the story just wouldn’t work and I’ll defend that, it wouldn’t. Would I have chosen to tell this story differently without him? Yeah, but that’s not the case. The case is, it’s George Lucas’ film, it’s his story… Being an editor, you want to take what’s there and try and make it the best [version] possible, and I guess that’s what I was trying to do.”

I think that’s what makes TFA: Restructured work. They could have made Starkiller Base, not a giant laser, but instead of removing it completely they said, “Okay, there’s another Death Star. Removing it would be extremely difficult, so instead, could we improve its function within the story?” I think this is the approach that should be taken.

I think that JarJ needs to be removed and replaced with a non-racist caricature character.

Vader never says “mother” so it had to be by name. I’m not sure how popular it is, but I’ve seen done before, and am personally in favor of it.

I recall someone mentioning that the James Earl Jones reading of the Bible is a place to find different varaiations of the word mother. You could find a phase that uses the word similarly to how Vader is forming his sentence and then see how well you could make it match through some audio manipulation.

Honestly still just too much work in my opinion for such a small change.

Or one could do voice acting in conjunction with audio manipulation.

Hey guys! Hope your Sunday is going well.

LordZerome1080, whether you intended it or not, your post came off as insulting towards those religions (mostly due to the word “fictional”, which you should have known would set people off).

All other posters, you’ve made your point.

Everyone please shut up now, or I start issuing temp bans.

Thank you. And I am sorry if my comments did offend.

You did mean to mock them. Your statement about “the fictional bible of the Jews and Christians” was very directly mocking the books as well as those who hold related religious beliefs, and there’s no way you can victim-card your way out of it.

I say again:

Dek Rollins said:

If someone on here made a blatantly racist comment, would I be a name calling shamer for calling them a racist?

I’m not playing any cards. I’m not mocking just giving my opinion.

Yeah, you are. You’re playing the same passive-aggressive snide cards ImpScum used to play. You’re fooling absolutely no one.

Except I’m not. I take full responsibility for what I said, what I will not take credit for is everyone trying to get a rise out of me.

ImpScum played the victim, too.

Congratulations, you’re the forum’s new resident troll.

Nope, you are.

Pff…

Aw, so you are the troll.

I was just stating an opinion, an unwanted one it seems, but an opinion nonetheless. and unlike the rest of you, I have refrained from making personal insults. Who is better, the person who answers a question or the person who jumps on the responder? The latter because name callers and shamers are not what one should aspire to be. I’m a secular humanist Jew and even I can see that there is no value to be found in the books of either religion when it comes to morality. The fact that you’re all up in arms over my suggestion to the poster proves to me that some people can’t play nice.

Dek Rollins said:

when the words used are actually descriptions of someone’s behavior rather than a juvenile insult, it isn’t simply “name calling.”

You mocked religious beliefs when the context of the thread and the conversation therein had nothing to do with religion. This is not an unwanted opinion, it is an insult being spread to anyone who is religiously a Jew or a Christian. We are not “name callers and shamers” because we called you out for being an asshole.

If someone on here made a blatantly racist comment, would I be a name calling shamer for calling them a racist?

You’re playing the victim card and I’m not buying it.

I never meant to mock them, I was merely suggesting a book series that met the qualifications being asked for. You can name call into the air as much as you want but I will not do it back.

Does anyone have any recommendations for an intelligently written yet extremely vulgar book? I really want to read another book filled with wicked violence, repugnant sexual deviancy, and revolting situations but that still tells a fantastic story and has some fascinating message on the human condition.

Chuck Palahniuk’s work (writer of Fight Club) sounds like what you’re looking for. Check out Survivor, *Lullaby", or Diary. I’ve heard good things about Invisible Monsters but never read it.

Another suggestion would be Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho, The Rules of Attraction).

And of course you have one of my favorite books of all time, Anthony Burgess’ A Clockwork Orange.

Thank you for not name calling.

I say keep Mace’s lightsaber purple and give make Anakin’s turn red during the order 66 thing then turn blue again when he gets conflicted on Mustifar.

So saber color changes based on emotion? That’s an interesting thought, but I don’t know if something so radical would work for a collaborative edit.

Let’s let the OP decide.

The only books I can think of that have the level of violence and degradation you want are the fictional bibles of the Jews and Christians.

Wow.

Care to elaborate?
