The Kenobi Movie
Time

I’d love an Old Republic movie showing the final battle between the Jedi and the Sith and the rise of Darth Bane.

4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

I loved MMPR as a kid. The original Red Ranger was my first crush (Still is, total dreamboat daddy bear now). Its weird to me that it got a 4K restoration and showings in a cinema. That 2004 remastering is looking older and worse each year and nothing. Do they want them to match Clones and Sith in stuck in 1080p forever?

Are The Prequels That Bad?
Time

I haven’t watched the Prequels in years, since 2011 I think. It was when the Blu-Rays came out and the DVDs went OOP and shot up in price. I sold the PT to some fool for a ton of money and never looked back. I did watch Clone Wars on Netflix when they gave me a free month.

I just read that the Mighty Morphin Power Rangera movie from the 90s got a 4K restoration…before Star Wars. We live in the wrong timeline.

Spent much of this weekend catching up on comics. I don’t understand the big deal people seem to be making over the new Darth Vader series, but I liked the Star Wars/Doctor Aphra crossover arc The Screaming Citadel quite a lot. Aphra has really become one of my favorite characters overall at this point.

Also, two more comics were announced at SDCC: a Mace Windu miniseries (yawn) and an adaptation of Zahn’s Thrawn (which I’m sure will be neat, but I’d rather a new story with Thrawn and Vanto).

The new Vader series is PT era. That’s it. The Tumblr PT Justice Warriors are so thirsty they will accept anything.

What part of Shady Space UPS invading a planet for a monopoly on that planet except they may or may not already have and also this has something to do with the rise of the Empire and wait, what?

Yeah - I mean why were the blockading the planet in the first place… something about space taxes?

They apparently felt the blockade was legal “as you know our blockade is perfectly legal” - but again what do they get out of it?

It’s also implied that the blockade was a cover for invasion… but the Trade Federation clearly didn’t want anyone to know about said invasion (as they denied it in the Senate… .apparently no one took a video of the invasion with their space phone and put it up on space youtube). But again, I’m not sure what they get out of invading Naboo? Does this somehow help them resolve some dispute over taxation? But wait, they also spent a bunch of time trying to get Padme to sign a treaty legitimizing their invasion and occupation… ok, but again; what do they get out of this? Are they just looting the planet or something?

They really don’t ever explain the motivations of the Trade Federation (other than doing what Sidious tells them to for “reasons”) in the films.

I think the reason for the invasion was to show how Valorum’s government was weak and allowed the Federation to boss them around and therefore he needed to be removed so Palpatine could rise to power.

My first thought was that it could even be Legacy. Mike has been in contact with members of the original crew, so I could see how that could happen.

I thought if even a second of Legacy got out Disney would smite him.

God I hate the Special Edtions even more with each passing day. Especially when I have to see kids get introduced to Star Wars via them.

I always thought he was Uncle Owen in the same way a close friends kids could call you aunt or uncle.

When Did The Star Wars Prequels Become Cool?
Time

ATMachine said:

Being able to watch a movie in black-and-white is no mark of bad taste in films. Quite the contrary.

What would you say about people who watched movies that are… can you imagine it… silent?

The people who really like the Prequels are also ones who wouldn’t watch a movie because it was in monochrome is what I think he meant.

I love silent movies. Metropolis, Nosferatu, Modern Times, Caligari, Broken Blossoms, the Toll of the Sea, Phantom of the Opera, the list goes on and on.

Bought some groceries at Target, and passed through the toy aisle, and what should I see? That action figure two pack with Moroff! Only one on the pegs, and sitting right in front like it was waiting for me. Impulse buy! Haven’t bought a SW figure in a long time.

Awesome. I’ve never had a Star Wars shirt or toy, but I feel like I’ll be correcting that in the coming weeks. I have my Rogue One socks as my only wearable Star Wars things ever, but I feel like I’m this close to getting a shirt.

Around the release of TFA, my parents kept buying me Star Wars shirts. My mom loves her JC Penny coupons, lol. I ended up with like a dozen which is really strange.

Matt Lanter is Anakin, to me. Speaking of Anakin, he looks very strange.

Its like they prettied him up or something.

If Anakin must be in the Last Jedi, can Matt Lanter just do it instead? Then we can use CGI and paste over Hayden in II and III as well.

[…] I was actually softening a little in my heart on my stance against the prequels. I was even vaguely considering watching them again at some point.

Oh boy, the “giving-the-Prequels-one-more-chance” thing. That comes in my mind from time to time too. I have not seen the Prequels for quite a while now in order to forget them as good as possible. But on the other hand, i’m saying to myself: Hey, they can’t be that bad? Let’s rewatch them completely open-minded. I did this two times in the past … but those movies are not getting better

I made the mistake a few years ago of falling into the “maybe I’ll give them just one more go” trap. No, they were worse than I remembered. After that I physically threw the DVDs in the trash so I may never again be tempted. My household is officially prequel-free.

I almost bought Revenge of the Sith on blu-ray when the Steelbooks came out because I am a steelbook slut. Thank god I came to my senses before it was too late. Spent the money on a UK Firefly steelbook instead.

Why not the UK Steelbook of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy? Has great graphic design on it.

Because I have a crush on Adam Baldwin that even looking at his Twitter cannot deminish. I have a thing for burly brutes.

Peter Cushing was in a lot of films before Star Wars, especially the Hammer Frankenstein and Dracula movies. He was one of those character actors who was in a lot of crap sometimes but always gave a good performance and treated the material he was in with respect, a la Christopher Lee. Its weird, but seeing him never takes me out of the movie. He’s that good.

Maz finding the Skywalker Lightsaber would make for a good animated Forces of Destiny short because I could see the exposition dragging down a film and grinding the plot to a halt.

Star Wars was known as Star Wars until at least the early 2000’s. Even the 1997 poster and advertising called it Star Wars: The Special Edition not A New Hope. I still call it Star Wars because I’m a pretentious jerk who likes be elitist.

It could get pushed back to Dec 2018 and move Mary Poppins Returns because no one gives a crap about that.

Kennedy has shown that she supports her directors when she likes their ideas. She’s the one who read the rough draft of Rogue One and asked why didn’t they all die. She’s the one who approved the last minute shooting of the Vader slaughter scene. She let JJ and Kasden dump most of Lucas’ draft. Rian Johnson seems happy with her. I trust Kennedy, she saw douche-bro Solo and was worried. Even the actor himself was worried and he was able to go to her and express his concerns and she didn’t brush him off.

Good on her.
