The EditDroid release is based on a broadcast master. The best possible quality one could hope for or obtain short of raiding the LFL vault.
The way that auction is worded sounds like it’s just a recording.
Yeah, that feels like a holdover from Lord & Miller.
Think about the logistics of this. The battle of Endor just happened three years ago. But somehow in that time a coffee magnate has traveled out to Endor, found their local variety of bean, negotiated with the local Ewoks to harvest them for him, ramped up production to a galactic scale and successfully marketed it? That’s ridiculously improbable and silly. The Star Wars galaxy is made up of billions of planets, referencing the same handful over and over shrinks the galaxy.
The Yavin one is slightly more forgivable. But if it’s anything like the Yavin from the old EU, there have to be thousands of safer worlds they’d turn to first before resorting to using Yavin like that. And I still maintain the 10 year limit on exploiting Endor to the point of having gourmet Endorian coffee. But that’s just the tip of that iceberg as I know later on in the book there’s a freaking Ewok that is an expert computer hacker. 😐
I just started it so I’m not very far in. So far I’ve really enjoyed the character writing but have been annoyed by the movie planet shoutouts. The section they’re in takes place like three years after ROTJ but they reference gourmet Endorian beans harvested by Ewoks and crop farming on Yavin IV. You could get away with that maybe 10 years after ROTJ but just three? No. Stuff like that makes me wonder how much the Story Group even vets these things.
That aside though, the story so far has been pretty good. Loved the opening.
Found this while wandering around Etsy:

Sorry Tobar, you’re wrong. It’s a good movie and you need to leave the thread with your head hung in shame.
No thanks, I think I’ll walk out with my head held high and my desire for better storytelling intact.
Santo & Johnny
Early in the film they mention that she used to make children’s books and it shows how her son is slowly chipping away at her sanity.
But do they do anything with that? No. It’s a real creature and she traps it in her basement like a weird pet. LAME.
Ugh, the Babadook was such a disappointment for me.
Thankfully my Australian release of Enemy Mine came with a reverse cover without the giant rating logo on it.
I think there’d be a lot less confusion in here if people adopted a five star rating system. ¬_¬
Well it needs the brand name for recognition from the general public. What it doesn’t need is that ridiculously clumsy subtitle. I really don’t understand why they didn’t go with the simple Star Wars: Rogue One, Star Wars: Solo naming convention. Probably because they wanted to differentiate between the episodic titles and the standalones but I don’t think that’s at all necessary.
Be Kind Rewind (2008)
Hadn’t seen this in…probably a decade. Still as charming as ever!
…championing this film as some innovative landmark
I don’t recall anyone doing anything of the sort in this thread. Especially since no one has seen it yet.
All I need is one more standalone set pre-SW and I can successfully pretend they’re episodes I-III.
It’s a nice moment but I’m in favor of cutting it. They were standing right by each other in the map scene and then the very next scene she’s wearing a new outfit, so time has passed. You’re telling me Poe wouldn’t seek out the girl that Finn just almost died trying to rescue? And to top it off he’s in the front of the crowd that sends off Rey as she leaves the base.
I understand that it’s something that Rian wanted to include to make up for one of Abrams many slips but it doesn’t make sense in context. It’s something that should have happened in TFA, even the novelization of TFA had them meet at this time:
“The map.” Rey could only stare in wonder as her eyes wandered over a shining, resplendent portrayal of a substantial portion of the galaxy. “It’s the whole map!”
“Artoo!” C-3PO’s tone was that of a proud relative complimenting a member of his family. “Artoo, you’ve done it!”
Cheers and spontaneous embraces filled the room with so much joy that no one paid any attention to who was hugging what representative of whichever species. Rey and Poe were not excluded, though their sudden, tight clinch of shared excitement led to a moment of mutual awkwardness.
“Uh, hi,” the pilot mumbled. “I’m Poe.”
She nodded slowly, searching his face and finding that she liked it. “I recognize the name. So you’re Poe. Poe Dameron, the X-wing pilot. I’m Rey.”
“I know.” He smiled back, a little more at ease. “Nice to meet you.”
Which is now non-canon and a really weird slip-up for the Story Group to make.
What? All this talk of good Jim Carrey movies and no one brings up The Majestic!
By the way, if that’s Malla I will love this movie to the end of my days.
That trailer was great! Far better than the teaser which left me uneasy.
A Quiet Place (2018)
What a fantastic sophomore entry for John Krasinki as a director. I had no idea he directed this until the end credits. A solid modern creature feature.
The second is one of my favorite movies of all time, I even got S.S. Wilson to autograph my blu-ray copy. But “people” generally consider it worse than the first.
