Your 4.0 GPA is your best option for getting as far away from your family as possible.

He doesn’t have to maintain a stellar GPA to get away. There are many good schools that will accept him with his imperfect GPA. He can even pursue a career in something non-academic. He can join the military, for instance. He can do what he wants with his life. I see no reason to encourage alienation from parents who obviously care about him.

That isn’t what I meant. Sometimes some distance helps. I liked my parents more when I moved out.

The rest of my family doesn’t go to bed until around midnight. The time they’re asleep – without all their arguing and asinine chittering and general noisemaking – is the only time of day where I feel I have some peace of mind. I take advantage of the tranquility by staying up 'til 3:00 or thereabouts.

I can sympathize. I did this a lot when I was in 8-12 grade just to get some peace.

The problem of Owen Lars

She was once Beru Skywalker, Anikins sister. She was never trained, but is force sensitive and can see things before they happen. She married Owen Lars who never agreed with such “wizardry”.
Watch the films with this in mind and it works just as well as Obi-Wan’s twisting the truth to Luke. For me, it makes the entire backstory more interesting as both Owen and Beru would be strongly connected to and involved with the plot of the PT. It would give an opportunity for a good female character and much better relationship dynamics.

They’re both just boring farmers that wore the same clothes for 25 years and aged four decades in a little over two. According to the PT that is.

A couple of people tried to ruin it for me, but I just blared Dark Side of the Moon through my headphones to drown everything else out. It didn’t look quite how I expected, but it was still weird and interesting.

Even though the 1983 Jabba still looks great today, I suspect that he’ll be CG in all of the standalone movies that feature him. It’s not a big deal since CGI characters often look fine in big budget movies, but I don’t seen how it could look any better than the original puppet.

The Jabba Movie

A Jabba movie would be at the very bottom of the barrel. Maybe in 10 years when they hit rock bottom they’ll go for that. I hope Patrick Warburton voices Jabba.

4K restoration on Star Wars

What else could they release - besides the original versions fully restored - in a new box-set to make us buy the saga again?

4K. That’s the selling point for all other movies that are released on 4K.

You know, I bet some think it is wrong to call someone who actually can’t see colors, colorblind, because now the word has “racial connotations”.

Find me someone who really thinks that and I will pay you 3000 Disney Dollars.

It wouldn’t surprise me if there’s some stupid idiot on an MTV talk show that would say that, but as for normal people, probably no one thinks that.

Maybe what you need to do with your parents is see if you get to a point with them where the both of you and agree to disagree about religion. If that is possible.

From what I understand of his situation, that won’t happen. I know that not all Mormons are like this, but their households and communities are notorious for ostracizing people that walk away from the faith more so than any other religion in America. I’ve personally seen it happen to people I know.
