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

In a way Jyn Erso’s character is there to remind us that Rogue One is, in spite of Tarkin and Vader stealing the show, at 100% a Prequel movie after all !

4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

Hum… sorry I don’t get it: Episode II & III were shot in 16:9 then cropped to 2.35 ? If I’m not mistaken 2.35 is larger than 16:9 so isn’t it the opposite that was done ? Which would mean the real resolution is in fact higher than 2k (well, not the cgi stuff but the rest would be) ?

(I’m pretty sure someone - Harmy perhaps - explained that a few pages ago… i’ll try to find his post)

Well, that was pretty boring. Seriously, am I too old for this, or not enough nerdy? I don’t think I truly enjoyed an episode of season 3, even though season 1 was OK and season 2 had a couple of interesting episodes.

Nah I agree: season 1 was fine and well balanced, with only 13 episodes and none truly bad. Season 2 and 3 are too long and have too many filler episodes. Even the Obi-Wan episode is parasitized by Ezra (I wish it had been a full Ben/Maul episode with no involvement of other characters, the continuity is damaged).

Its going to be Lucas burning the materials so the OT stays at 1080p just like his precious Prequels…

AOTC and ROTS are in 2K, which is slightly higher than 1080p.

I’d be shocked if they didn’t have SOMETHING big planned, even if it’s not what we’re all hoping.

4K versions of the saga would be a great annoncement, even with the SE and not the OOT.

The fact Rogue One is even being considered for awards is a testament to Disney’s ability to put Star Wars back on course. Almost any love Rogue One gets is cool in my book.

Disney can make ANYTHING win an award, even the highest honor. When an animated movie as bad as Zootopia wins againts the great Kubo and the two strings, “love” is irrelevant…

(best actress, seriously… best film, come on…, best director… well, that I can understand)

(and WTF are Empire awards anyway, it’s an online video game magazine ?!? It’s 12 yo kids giving awards to movies ? Dude…)

Twin suns is a often boring episode but which is saved by two beautiful sequences, the first being the best transition between the PT and the OT to date, at every level (wu xia pian to chambara, chosen one prophecy translated in its new era, Ewan’s Obi-Wan to Alec’s Ben); the second being the very predictable yet moving last shot of Ben watching over Luke from a distant spot. Almost dropped a tear filled with memories there.

This season has failed (too) many things, but at least it got this right. A wasted show with great potential nonetheless…

Firefly is ok. Not as good as Cowboy Bebop but still nice. The movie version, Serenity, was quite a failure.

What if every movie had a pre-crawl scene?
Time

ANH: an imperial officer takes his shift on the gunner deck of the Star Destroyer: “Don’t forget guys, laser stuff are expansive, use it only when necessary”.

TESB: Boba Fett gives his report to Vader about the identity of the young rebel who destroyed the Death Star (like in the comic book).

ROTJ: a montage to see the Rancor growing up from his birth to adulthood.

TPM: a planet size kyber crystal goes big-bang and releases the Force through the Galaxy.

AOTC: after Jinn is killed, Dooku leaves the Jedi Order.

ROTS: Anakin being knighted, from the first Clone Wars tvseries.

TFA: the entire movie is just a pre-crawl scene, so I don’t see the point in adding one…

Here’s a proposed implementation of NeverarGreat’s SKB explosion.

When Rey goes “Finn! Finn!” the absence - for a few seconds - of the wind sound is noticeable. The rest of the clip is good, didn’t notice anything wrong about it.

And I’m pretty sure no one really notices the difference anyway. TFA is shot on film but looks digital, so…

I’m just waiting for new fan theories “Michael K. Williams = Snoke ?!?”.

(or Lando’s brother ?)
(or Windu’s cousin ?)
(or Rey’s godfather ?)
(or Finn’s father ?)

(WE NEED TO KNOW !!!)

Clone Wars Movie Series

Another idea: since the main plot of A new threat deals with the Malevolence, I believe the Malevolence first scene should be placed right after the opening crawl (which would then need to be changed), à la A New Hope opening (action scene instead of a talkative one).

  1. Opening crawl

First paragraph, the same

In a bold move, the Clone Army has won a striking victory on the planet Rhodia, by capturing the Viceroy of the TRADE FEDERATION, Nute Gunray.

Chancelor Palpatine has dispatched Jedi Master Luminara and Padawan Ahsoka (etc.)

Little does the REPUBLIC know that to stop its forces to advance further, the SEPARATIST ALLIANCE has built a new weapon, the MALEVOLENCE, a warship with the ability to annihilate entire fleets, which is reaching nearly completion under the lead of General Grievous and Comt Dooku….

  1. First Malevolence attack
  2. Ahsoka, Gunray, Luminara
  3. Dug homeworld scene
  4. Back to Gunray
  5. Back to Dug homeworld: Palpatine sends Windu and Anakin on a mission to find the weapon
  6. Maybe another Malevolent attack if there is enough material; or else you can directly show the two Jedi arriving to the Cruiser.

What do you think?
