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

The special features look surprisingly generic to me. Only interviews with the usual PR chit chat but nothing about the actual production. As it was mentioned above, there should be a real documentary like the one’s they did for the ALIEN DVDs back then highlighting all production aspects.

It was mentioned over at blu-ray.com that Edwards actually confirmed that he recorded a commentary so I’m hoping there’ll be a deluxe version later this year.

is it clear that he recorded this on his version or the theatrical version?

4K restoration on Star Wars

Ok, so I’m all pessimistic and think that if anything they’ll just release a 4K SE and we’ll all be disappointed.

But then what keeps me intrigued is the disappearance of Mike Verta. I just watched a few of his short videos from 2 years ago thinking that this guy put too much work into it (just the one clip of the X-wings leaving Yavin IV alone was astonishing!) for it all to just go away… Not even leaked out. If I put on my tin foil hat, I think he was hired by Disney and given all the things to do it right.

he has disappeared a lot in the past for normal reasons…

Hey, I got a spleen invite from someone, but all I can find is the BD25 versions. Have the others been removed or am I just not using the right search terms? I’d really like the BD50 versions and the documentary discs if at all possible. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated!

don’t search for njvc in the filename, only some really old out of date ones are under that. instead do a user search for njvc, and view all the user’s uploaded torrents. 😄

If it were literally unplayable then it wouldn’t be playable. Another reason why no one takes you seriously is because you use the word literally when it doesn’t apply.

I’d say it’s more about his extreme hyperbole. I know a ton of people who use “literally” incorrectly.

You know 2,000 pounds of people who use “literally” incorrectly?

Yes, a literal ton of people. It’s actually just five big guys.

I get it

A fascinating read about why some people thought it’d be a great idea to elect a meme as a president:

Interesting, but I am not sure if the characterization of basement dwellers is true or helpful. But certainly interesting, it’s the first time I have heard reference to the Trump voter who knows they are losing and wants to “turn into the skid” as the author kept stating. I haven’t seen these types of people in my experience, so I can’t help but doubt they exist.

I enjoyed La La Land. Found it quite charming but I don’t think it quite deserves all of the lavish praise it’s been getting.

This is probably because I went on a Fred Astaire binge a couple years back, but I found La La Land’s execution quite clumsy a lot of the time.

It was a decent effort and I hope it leads to at least a small revival of the genre. Though hopefully they’ll strive to match the artistry and skill of the past in the future.

Just saw it last night with my wife, and I would say we both thought it was really great and fun, but not as good as everyone seemed to make it sound. I felt like the singing and overall choreography for the first few scenes felt clumsy and not very professional, but the movie picked up and had some really great moments.

Ignore this is Cosmo for some reason:

http://www.cosmopolitan.com/politics/a8878322/trum-racism-question-electoral-college/

Reporter: Since your election campaign, and even after your victory, we’ve seen a sharp rise in anti-semitic incidents across the United States. And I wonder what do you say to those among the Jewish community in the States and in Israel, and maybe around the world, who believe and feel that your administration is playing with xenophobia and maybe racist tones?

Trump: I just want to say that we are very honored by the victory that we had. 306 electoral college votes. We were not supposed to crack 220. [to Netanyahu] You know that, right? There was no way to 221. But then they said there’s no way to 270. And there’s tremendous enthusiasm out there. I will say that we are going to have peace in this country.

He then goes on to babble about how all violence is bad and he knows Jewish people.

I listened to that whole thing live on the radio. babble is a great way to describe anything that comes out of Trump’s mouth.

It just dawned on me that Vader’s confrontation with Ahsoka is only 7 years before RotJ. He ages a ton in those 7 years.

I think having the young, unscarred face behind the mask was an artistic license so that we get the emotional response we want from Ashoka.

probably. however that makes me wonder if we will get an ‘event’ that ages Vader at some point in this or another series. (unless there already is a cannon explanation that i don’t know or can’t think of right now)

Immigration laws are there for a reason, yes, and I agree with the reason. But breaking them is not so heinous a crime as murder or rape, or even assault or theft. Saying it’s their fault for being stigmatized is just blaming the victim. These people have lived a tough life. Do you think it was easy for them to leave their country and come here? Just because they broke the law doesn’t mean we should treat them like criminals. I would say that yes you are falling into a trap of rigidity of thought and making blanket judgements. I break the law nearly every day by jaywalking but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t be allowed to cross the street. And so why deportation can be such an overly harsh punishment. When I say these people are citizens of the land they call home, I mean just because they don’t have papers doesn’t mean they don’t live here. That woman who was deported has lived in America longer than I have. But she wasn’t as fortunate as I.

Yes

Justice and mercy. Nothing else to say really.
