The Kenobi Movie
Time

And what about something new in this saga, for a change ? (really new, not a soft reboot à la TFA) Hope Ep.VIII will deliver what I wish for (i.e. being surprised in a good way). There has been 6 movies, 6 seasons of tvseries, and a very beautiful cameo in another tvseries with Ben. I thought it was time to let Kenobi in peace…

That being said, they should take Chris Lennertz to score this one. Or, if available, Chris Young.

In the scene when Luke is calling out to Leia I took it that the reason she was able to hear him was because deep down it was Luke who she truly loved not Han.

It might have been the original intention of the creative crew at that time, since Han was later supposed to die in EpVI and Luke was supposed to go looking for his sister who is not Leia.

In fact they are only called “speeder” in the movie, not “snowspeeder”.

I don’t see what’s so difficult for you to understand about that. I didn’t see you grumbling about everyone calling the ‘wampa’ the ‘wampa’, even though the creature is not named in the film itself and is only referred to as ‘Snow Creature’ in the film’s credits.

Why this sudden (and totally uncalled for) aggressivity ? Also, “grumbling” ?!? You should read more carefully so you wouldn’t misinterpret what I write that much. Anyway, keep cool guy.

Marvellous ! Revisited is so much better, I’m speechless.

Just a quick remark about the french subtitles: I wouldn’t translate “walkers” by “quadripodes impériaux”, especially since “bipodes impériaux” have now joined the party.

(and also I don’t like the bluray subs on which are based the french subs for revisited… just a question of taste, such as “dark vador” instead of “darth vader” that I cannot stand now… I’ll just synchronize my own ESB sub I made last year file to revisited 😃)

Ah Ok, the wampa, I get it now: I thought you were talking about the first attack (which is still the theatrical wampa), not the wampa lair shots (I forgot how bad looking was the theatrical version). Very good indeed ! (so seamless that I didn’t notice it was fixed as a matter of fact !).
I’ve shown to some people the battle of Hoth, they were amazed by the addition.

Just something not relevant to ESB:R but that I read often (even here on OT.com, which surprises me):

Matt.F said:
In fact, like The Force Awakens and Rogue One, Revisited is well served by going back in time and embracing physical model building and costuming.

You should watch a making of TFA and R1, you would be surprised how CGI oriented these movies are. They used the same filmmaking methods developed on the PT (minimal sets, models, props, green screens, cgi creatures, practical ships for close ups and cgi models for action scenes, etc.), except it’s more recent and shot on 35mm film (not digital à la AOTC/ROTS) with OT oriented sets so it might give a “old school” feeling which is only a feeling.

Here is an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgzxrwXHCoU
(this EXACT same way of producing the PT was used on TFA and R1. This is how LFL works, this is how any blockbuster works !)
(the only main difference is that the PT used more CGI extras, because of droid and clone armies involved)

(and I’m always shocked by this kind of misinformation, especially when praised whereas SW is a saga that contributed to make huge advanced in the field of vfx: the OT did it, the PT did it, and the new movies as well are trying to do it - CGI Tarkin for example -. This conservative state of mind for sci-fi movies is so weird, as if CGI had become a F word…).

Otherwise I agree with most (except every bit about R1 😉) of your ESB:R review 😃

I wasn’t sure at first because of a few things here and there I wasn’t convinced with, but after watching the all edit I must say I don’t only think it’s “just” an interesting take on TESB, I now do think it’s really going to become my only way to watch it from now on. Hoth battle, Bespin, the Emperor, Dagobah… I like the SE/brd additions (Wampa cave, EpIII Emperor, Vader going back to his ship) but this Revisited version is better in every way possible (without even mentioning the very nice colors). Nicely done Ady (as well as all the people who have provided help when needed), I hope you enjoyed working of this edit and I’m glad you share it with other SW enthusiasts. I’ll be sure to share it with people not familiar with fan edits as well.

SW is lucky to have such dedicated fans to improve the all saga experience. Thanks to all of you guys, you’re awesome.

I agree. Thanks for stepping in to answer Mala.

No worries, I wasn’t thinking about the Leia sequence (which is indeed mandatory to “sell” the restructured version and make it feel natural) but I was referring to the attempts at Ackbar’s “all craft/ships” lines that aren’t really working for now (as Never explains it in its last comment).

Thanks for the update guys ! I agree with NeverarGreat about a v3 that could be finished for after the release of VIII (or even IX ?) if new material can make some changes better aligned (and technically less jarring) wwith the rest of the ST, but there is no hurry. We all know the theatrical cut too well to be aware of a few things that we might be overthinking. Anyway, I’ll stay tuned for the next updates 😉

I would be in favor of not “echo-ing it/radio-ing it” (don’t know how to say it 😃), since it’s a complete sentence and for sound continuity it would be less jarring to avoid toying with sound filters.

What’s the current state of this edit by the way ? I was under the impression it was near the finish line. In order to follow its progress more easily it would be cool to have a “first post update” with the current status of all the ideas implemented or in progress to be implemented.

Alien: Covenant

Ouch… Covenant is for Prometheus what Prometheus is for Alien. The worst in the series and even the worst Friday the 13th

0/10

Is Alien: Covenant a crossover with the Friday the 13th series? How is it the worst Friday the 13th?

Serious question ? Really ?!? Ok, sometimes I forget how this forum works… So it’s a joke 'cause Alien: Covenant uses the alien figure as a Jason Voorhees figure (like the couple showering that gets killed, pop music included) or the poor lady who slips (twice !) on a blood puddle with a funny sound (the sort of thing you would find in Jason X or Jason Lives). It’s a way to say despite its pretentious monologues and attempts to create something as fascinating as an Alien/Blade Runner hybrid, Covenant is as dumb as any slasher movie.

AVP aren’t real Alien movies, but are closer to be real Predator movies. Very terrible Predator movies though.

(the first AVP and Prometheus however share the same script, and both are awful…)
