STAR WARS: EP VI -RETURN OF THE JEDI &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>NOW IN PRODUCTION</strong>
Time

Snaketibe said:

Before the expiration of the $1,000 challenge offer tomorrow, 12th November, please can I take this opportunity to encourage anyone who enjoys Ady’s Revisited project, but has not yet donated, to do so? There is still time to have your donation matched by the very generous offer made by 1,000 Challenge. There has never been a better time to donate to Revisited, as your donation will effectively be doubled at no extra expense to you.

I would like to thank 1,000 Challenge for his kindness and generosity in making this offer, and of course also Adywan for his continued hard work, dedication, talent and generosity at making and sharing the Revisited films with the rest of us.

I really enjoy and appreciate Ady’s work, and so I have just made a donation as part of the $1,000 challenge. Please consider doing likewise. Thank you.

Well said, Snaketibe

I’m not even looking for these, they just keep popping up in Google News.

Who could believe such an awful excuse for a human being could do such a thing? (insert sarcasm emoticon here)

Rian Johnson to Head New Star Wars Trilogy

They said in the official announcement that this won’t be Episodes X, XI, and XII.

Right, but I 100% guarantee you that Episodes X, XI, and XII are coming after Johnson’s trilogy is finished.

Aye mate. After a 10 year break or so from the Main Trilogies… I think the pull/urge to do a follow-up on an older Rey, Finn and Poe etc (& whoever survives IX) - along with introducing some newer younger characters - will be great and very tempting for Disney.

I don’t think Frink was personally calling out or “denigrating” Dirge, I think he simply meant to imply that the whole conversation was drifting a bit and would be better suited to a different thread about how many times we’ve seen Star Wars (I believe there are a number of these).

As for my post, was just a joke, not at anyone’s expense in particular. Or maybe my post wasn’t an issue? You were sort of vague in terms of who you were calling out. (Hard to learn from my mistakes if I’m not sure if I made any, I honestly don’t see anything here deserving of reprimand but maybe that’s just me.)

Anyway, back to “topic” I suppose… I saw TFA five times in the theater (an unusually high number for me), and probably something like 3-4 times on Blu-ray/digital, and a lot more times on TV. Guess that means I liked it.

Sorry DominicCobb - this post wasn’t aimed at you - though is a ‘heads-up’ of sorts to everyone that this sort of behaviour will no longer be tolerated.

The full sentence is however… ‘Though to be honest - and for clarity - we’re fed up of seeing fellow members’ posts denigrated or being judged in this all-to-familiar manner’.

Something for fellow members to consider…
 

Jay, the mods, and many of you members all continue to strive to help make place a welcoming community for Star Wars fans who find their way here.

To further this, a couple of weeks ago the mods (after conversation with Jay) asked that members stop with the name calling (which has seemingly been on the rise of late). For clarity this includes telling members to f*** off - even as a joke; it could well lead to misunderstandings and further issues between members - and isn’t exactly an encouraging sign of a friendly community that people may wish to frequent.
 

Also in a bid to help new members settle in here and become part of the community we also ask that should you choose to assist new members in ‘learning the ropes’ here - or ‘pointing them in the right direction’ to what they are looking for… please do it in a polite manner; making fun of them, being sarcastic, or abrupt isn’t helpful - or welcoming.

This is not to say we appreciate it may be frustrating to repetitively answer the same questions over and over again, ie - ‘Where can I download the Despecialized Editions?’ or ‘How do I download this?’ or ‘Can I have a myspleen invite?’ etc - especially when the answer is often straight in front of a new member.

For our longer serving members the above is likely even more exasperating at times - HOWEVER, we ask you please remember what it is like the first time you go to a new place and try to join in the community… sometimes excitement and eagerness overtake patience and rationale.
 

Please aim to stay on topic - and if you have something to say, post it with reasons or explanations. Laughing at, or denigrating fellow members’ posts will not tolerated; if you disagree then fine, says so - with your reasons/opinion - yet keep it civil.

Posters who laugh at, or denigrate fellow members’ posts, will now be issued with official warnings - which may also result in a temp-ban. The same will also apply to posters who are sarcastic or abrasive to new members, and also to people who engage in name-calling or are abusive to fellow members.
 

Please don’t accuse - or allude to - fellow members of being socks or trolls etc in public here on the forum. If you have any concerns or suspicions about a certain users, PM one of the moderators to let us know.

If you see any spam posts on the site please do NOT quote any part of it - though please inform one of the moderators via PM as soon as possible.
 

If you do feel that a thread or post has become toxic or out of control, or someone is being abusive or overbearing - report it to a moderator - we ARE here to assist in smooth running of this quality site.
 

Thank you.

 

The short version:-

Be cool to each other.

Try and have a little more patience with new members - though we appreciate it can be a little frustrating at times.

Aim to stay on topic - give reasons as to your opinion or why you may disagree - yet keep it civil.

If you see something dodgy or toxic - let a moderator know.

Let’s continue to make this community a welcome place for all.

Nice one, thanks 😃

The Force Awakens: Official Review Thread - ** SPOILERS **
Time

Lads, Dirge has just given his TFA rating in the context of comparing it with how many times he’s seen the other Star Wars films - and that has been posted recently in the thread too.

It seems likely that the more occasions you’re willing to watch something… the more you enjoy or get from it, which seems a reasonable premise.
 

I strongly suggest a more open-minded and welcoming approach to fellow members’ posts. Though to be honest - and for clarity - we’re fed up of seeing fellow members’ posts denigrated or being judged in this all-to-familiar manner.

This stops - it will no longer be tolerated - the next time the mods see something like this warnings or temp-bans will be issued.

If you think I’m being harsh or overstepping the mark consider this - if Dirge hadn’t already replied - I’d have deleted your posts and issued official warnings.

We have a local movie theatre that’s essentially an old town hall with random old couches and lounge chairs spaced out pretty genorously in lines that you just grab a blanket and lounge in with a few beers and ice creams while getting a pretty decent movie experience via a theatre size screen and a large professional hi-fi audio system.

We’ve got a proper cinema as well but the other one is a nice change from the usual popcorn and soft drink in your stiff single fold down seat wherever you can find one if you’re not early enough.

.Val

Edit: Oh yeah, I saw TFA once in the cinema and once at home on Bluray. Only seen RO once in the cinema so far. I generally liked both movies though 😛

Sounds a cool and relaxing setup you have there mate - I’m a little envious.

Are retrospective changes just fan service?

Imagine Lucas thinking:
If i had known that you fans like this guy so much, i would have never killed him off. Sooooo, here he is! Just for you! I directed him to look right into the camera … well, basically he is looking at YOOOUUUU!

I never liked those additions, they’re sh*t.

Instead of adding pointless shots of Boba slumming it with the two b*tches, they could have used the SE Boba actor to redo those flipped shots and fix the issue with the range finder on the wrong side of his helmet.

Slavicuss - please choose your description of the two females you refer to more carefully.

If the other mods or I see that again warnings will be issued.

This applies to any other member posting similar descriptions too.
 

Thank you.

Most impressive oojason! I am guessing some of those are homemade?

Cheers mate. Yes, apart from the 3 larger boxes and the OT bluray the others are all fan-made sets some date back to the time of TR47, Gonzo, Moth3r’s Pal set, EditDroid, Isomix OT laserdisc-sourced dvd sets, and some Prequel Fan Edits, Despecialized Editions, Jambe Davdar’s Filmumentaries series, and Rogue One 😃

Some top quality covers have been made on here over the years - and lots to choose from - even for an inksaver fan such as myself.

I have mainly been doing USB covers and boxes / cases of late:-

Really like the Jabba figure you have - looks more real than the 97 Special Edition version 😃

Some quality figures there - brought back a lot of memories - nice one 😃

Ranking the Star Wars Soundtracks

You could have said so in the original hahahaha post mate.

Laughing at a poster’s opinion - without stating why you find it so funny does disrupt the flow and quality of a topic somewhat. It puts them on the backfoot - they possibly may be reluctant to post further on it - or engage in further topics elsewhere - which is something we don’t want.

Plus, it’s not so much fun being laughed at.

This isn’t a specific pop at you, Frink - though it is a general request for anyone reading this… a little more civility and understanding - give a little bit more to encourage a conversation unfold and evolve - and also have a laugh too.

 

It could, from a certain point of view, be true… (not so much the ‘no-one buys…’ part - but a significant effect)

Youtube - a streaming service - has had an effect on itunes, due to youtube’s free content, ease of use, proliferation, and more choices of differing versions of a single track (live, acoustic, piano, cover, in-session, concert, or part of a whole album etc)… people may opt to listen to music for free on there - instead purchasing tracks from itunes.

Then we move on to tv series & film etc - the streaming sites (many illegal and free)… the ability to watch a film at any time of your choosing for free (moral and legal aspect aside) - has very likely had an effect on itunes. Game Of Thrones for example - available minutes after the episode had premiered on may streaming sites - even including the porn sites!

Itunes is more of a rigid system too - other streaming services seem more loose in comparison when cataloging content (obviously that’s subjective - and some may prefer a more rigid system), as well as the more restrictive itunes formats too…

Electric Youth - “A Real Hero”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6cedWvuxwbc

I think I could easily get into Electric Youth - a nice flashback to good old 80’s, the girl can sing, they have a great sound, with a good 80’s style visuals too in a few videos too 😃

This song sounds familiar. I probably heard in some random commercials and movies. It is very 80’s.

Apparently it was in a Kia car advert, Taken 2, and part of the Drive 2 soundtrack as well. It’ll likely been used in other things too mate 😃 Very 80’s - without the cheesiness 😃
