B-Wing
Just realized that we’ve got B-wings up in this.

Funny. I just thought what the man was talking about? And then I saw it. These “Ski Speeders” really look like a shitty version of the B-Wing fighter. The whole new SW ships are rather weakly designed.

But i am excitde to see how the shitty LEGO-Heavy Scout Walker looks in the film!
Can only be a mess.

I guess I half agree with you here since I find the ski speeders to be aesthetically pleasing whereas the walkers and the new star destroyers feel really uninspired.

I tried a bunch of different things, but this seems to work best:

“You’d leave neutral ground?
Violence here…
…would be war”

This gives some idea of how ‘normal’ denizens of the galaxy feel about this situation - the First Order isn’t officially at war with the Republic until this attack, and even then they don’t take action. Hopefully that is enough to show that something is very wrong with the Republic, and very right with the Resistance.

I like this.

I don’t really know what to think of it yet. I need to see it a second time.

Cutting down the Porgs will be the most popular fan-edit request/idea once the Last Jedi is released.

Thanks!

Since changing our hero’s decisions is beyond the scope of the edit (and everyone seems to like it), I cordially retract my previous suggestions 😃

Since we remain locked into the Finalizer FX for V2, I’ve been thinking again about the general lack of panic at the castle (yeah, it’s still bothering me after 30 pages). But I think I may have a solution! Perhaps something for V3 anyway…

In the original, there’s very little exposition about Maz’s Castle. In fact, it’s not much different than the Cantina. However, from background sources we know that although Maz is a pirate there’s a strict no-violence policy, and from the film we know that it’s been there for 1000 years. From this information it makes sense that there’s at least an informal agreement among all factions of the galaxy that Maz’s castle is inviolate. It may even be a place of political asylum, more like Casablanca than the Cantina. The problem is that this isn’t communicated in the film.

There are a few shots in the deleted scenes of Finn talking to the aliens who would take him to the outer rim. Combining these with the section in the film, there may be enough to subtitle. Something like:

Finn: 'I heard you’re looking for some labor.'
Alien 1: 'Ah, running from trouble.'
Alien 2: 'Tell him.'
Finn: 'I was told you can get me to the outer rim.'
Alien 1: ‘Yes, but there’s no danger here.’

Or something more cryptic:

Finn: 'I heard you’re looking for some labor.'
Alien 1: 'If there’s anything you seek…'
Alien 2: '…So they say…'
Alien 1: '…Maz provides all you need.'
Finn: ‘I was told you can get me to the outer rim.’

Great Idea. I like the comparison to Casablanca and that would give her castle a unique spin to make it different from the cantina.

I’ve heard that no punctuation a Millennial thing.

Can confirm. My peers twitter feeds are a pain to get through. The comma doesn’t exist in these people’s minds.

I’m still hoping that when Luke talks about raw potential he isn’t talking about Ben Solo, but rather Leia and Snoke is talking about Rey. Kylie Ren is a bit of a push over if you ask me.

I had the same thought about Snoke maybe talking to Rey.

I watched the trailer once. Didn’t like it at all. I don’t even like the poster. I’m getting worried. I did like the teaser, but… well, hopefully it’s good.

What were some of the biggest things that stuck out to you in the trailer that made you worried?

My last friend who I had just stopped talking to me. I’m stoned all the time now and also might have gotten a speeding ticket. I’m just messing everything up right now and all I want to do is just smoke more and more pot to get rid of the anxiety. I also have to keep it a secret from my friends since they decided they thought I was getting out of hand. But it doesn’t even matter anymore since they don’t even talk to me. God, I just feel so isolated.

That sucks, man. I’m sorry.

Possessed hit the nail on the head when it comes to pot, though. Being a little high often is one thing, but being full-on stoned all the time causes its own host of problems, damage to social relationships included.

Thanks. To follow Possessed’s advice I am trying to cut back. As for my friends, that is basically over. Time to start hitting up one of the 50 acquaintances I have, who always seemed like much cooler and nice people than the friends I had from middle school and was trying to hold onto. I just still don’t know why I never took a leap of faith and tried to change my friends. All of middle school and half of high school with the same friends who treat you like crap makes it pretty hard to try to make new friends, and I guess I didn’t want to lose that sense of social stability.

I still am trying to piece together what madness might go down in the third act.

It almost seems foolhardy to even try at this point. Think of everything we know is in the movie that we didn’t see in the trailer. No Canto Bight. No Rose Tico. No Vice Admiral Holdo or DJ. I wouldn’t be surprised if we find out when we finally see the movie that almost all of the trailer footage was from the first act, like it was with TFA.

If you forget about all of the shots of the forest battle and X-Wings on Starkiller base.

Really good trailer. From a visual sense, many of the shots reminded me of Empire Strikes Back, but story and character wise, this seems to be shaping up to be something very different. I still am trying to piece together what madness might go down in the third act.

I Don’t really see pot as a bad habit, unless it’s a problem of avoiding loved ones to do it or you can’t financially sustain it. It’s had nothing but positive benefits for me both physically and mentally. I’m more social, happier, my blood pressure is lower, my stomach is more settled. If you’re just worried about smoking (I’m not. If you buy really high quality stuff a decent puff or two at a time is really all you need and honestly what’s that going to do to you realistically. I’m talking real dank stuff) you could just vape it and basically eliminate all physical side effects.

Yah, I just use a dab pen and get very clear highs from it.

Actually haven’t been sober all weekend. And half the time at school.

I thought the old BFII had it set up so that you could play with OT or PT armies on any map (but not a mix), and you got the corresponding set of heroes depending on which era you were playing (i.e. Empire vs. Rebels on Kamino or Republic vs. Separatists on Hoth is fine, bout you couldn’t do Republic vs. Empire or Separatists vs. Rebels). Whether that’s how it used to be or not, that’s how I’d like it to be now.

You are exactly correct. Just checked out Battlefront 2 myself to make sure. Also had some good time destroying x-wings left and right in a space battle above Geonosis.

Ha!

I agree that is quite funny. It’s actually the same way I feel for a lot of Amnesiac and Kid A. There were some points when Radiohead got a little too “experimental” for my tastes.

Yeah, pretty much how I feel about those two albums, though Motion Picture Soundtrack was worth all the other weirdness. (Not that it isn’t a weird one in its own right, of course.)

Exact same mindset over here! Motion Picture Soundtrack is one of the most beautiful songs I think I have ever heard.

Someone on the Fanedit forums also mentioned the problem, and there are several places where it feels quiet. The first is Ben’s scene, where I had to crank up the volume to hear the additional music and the voices. Then it goes quiet after 3PO’s storytime, and I think it only returns as the fighters enter the superstructure.

Hmm, interesting.

Everyone should also know that the free program “Megadownloader” bypasses the 5 GB limit quite easily. Just plug the mega link into the program, choose your download location, and your on your way!

According to this, you now have to use a VPN to get around the 5gb limit, and this works with the unofficial program Megadownloader and the official app MegaSync. Is this right?

Anyway, I just finished watching this edit, and it’s quite good!
There are some audio level issues, such as when it goes quiet at around the halfway mark and returns after Vader dies. Other than that, very nice!

Didn’t know that you had to use a VPN for such a thing. I am also very curious where you saw the audio specifically goes quiet so I can take a look. I have never been able to find evidence of such an error.
