I think you’re confusing this with Attack of the Clones.

I’d happily watch a movie where Jackie Chan avenges the death of his daughter who happened to be on the landing pad at the beginning of AOTC.

An explanation of how TLJ continues the theme of TFA in being a Star Wars movie about Star Wars.

I agree with him, and think this is the strongest theme running through the trilogy so far. If the ST is ‘about’ anything, it’s about this more than anything else. But that’s also where I have problems with the ST. Even the prequels were about the corruption of the Republic and the fall of Anakin Skywalker. If the ST is an extended exercise in navel-gazing, then it’s like a serpent eating its own tail. Here’s hoping Episode 9 proves me wrong.

The Foreigner (2017)

This is two movies. One is an engaging story of revenge through the eyes of Jackie Chan, the other is an overcomplicated and dull political ‘thriller’. Too bad that Chan is basically a side character who could be removed from the plot with no repercussions.

What a waste.

Star Wars (1977)

Concluded I’ve been lying all these years I’ve been telling people The Empire Strikes Back is my favorite Star Wars movie. Peer pressure, I guess. I’m just so happy when I’m watching the one that started it all!

This one sees the truth!

Just downloaded it and I’m scanning through.
Was there a reason that the updated X-wing approach shot wasn’t used?

Ugh, are you kidding me? That’d be my bad. I honestly can’t see the difference, even now, so even though I looked at everything, I did not notice anything there. I’m genuinely good with leaving it as is unless you feel like a substantial improvement is being missed out on.

Honestly it’s fine to leave it, I would just put the update in Starlight at some point anyway.

You mean the visible from everywhere superweapon superbeam that makes planets go boom? The worst bit of that doesn’t exist anymore thanks to Restructured, and for the rest…

shrug

Besides, Starkiller was a one-off dumb thing. Hyperdrives as weapons hurt my brain the same way the implications of the shield/lasgun interaction does in Dune.

Star Wars Episode III: Labyrinth Of Evil (Finished!)

I’m sorry to hear this. What is it with video editors and constant crashes? I have to use the 2014 version of Premiere Pro because any later version refuses to work with my computer, and bluescreen of death has become a predictable event. Oh, and any serious rending must be done on a borrowed computer because my graphics card is shot. I really need to get my tower upgraded.

Anyway, I hope FCP10 is a better solution for you going forward.
