Han - Solo Movie ** Spoilers **
Time

I’m sure nobody here will have the same frame of reference, but the new Han looks just like Dick Valentine, singer for Electric Six. My Lady and I can’t stop laughing about it! (we’re big E6 fans)
The more I see of him, the stronger the resemblance becomes. If he yells “YES!” at any point, I’m not sure we’ll be able to recover.

Anybody know where MFM went? Seems like he hasn’t been around for awhile.

I asked this awhile back, but I just wanna be clear-
Does the second song the Modal Nodes (cantina band) play have no in-universe title?
The first song is called Mad About Me, but what about the second track, the one the patrons of the bar seem to love? It’s just labeled as Cantina Band #2 on the soundtracks.
Surely this isn’t the one thing the EU has no info on, right?

“Dune Sea Special”

Cool. Thanks.
Lame title though. I was hoping that it, like the other track, would have a name not connected with Star Wars at all.

Yep. It’s an American problem.

I think it’s wrong to generalize such a huge country with very varying local legistlation and people. Would be nice to see a state by state comparison.

The Netherlands would fit into my small state 3x, so I have to agree that these kinds of stats are wonky.

I never thought there was much to the “mythology” of it beyond some very vaguely intriguing tiny bits dropped in the first one.

There was quite a bit, but it was all in the viral marketing, which has never been done better.

Which has more CGI: Phantom Menace or Force Awakens

The CG in TPM isn’t even really that big a problem (except for the fact that it’s aged 19 years and there are a lot of gratuitous bits with CG characters), it’s really AOTC and ROTS where it gets ridiculous.

Yep. TMP looks like a movie. Can’t say that for AOTC or ROTS.

I really dig the original Cloverfield (and the intriguing, detailed backstory to it which I guess they’re ignoring now. Shame)
Thought 10 Lane woulda’ been much better without the Cloverfield hook.
Paradox would be bad either way, but is probably worse than it was before they decided to tag a Cloverfield ending onto another unrelated film again.

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

I posted this over at Hal’s thread and I only feel it’s fair to give both upcoming ROTJ edits the same ideas.

May I suggest you cut all of the Emperor’s scenes before the confrontation? Neither of the scenes add anything besides the Enperor bossing Vader around (which sort of diminishes his character). With constant allusions to the Emperor (Moff being scared, Yoda’s warning) there would be a lot more tension when Luke meets him if we haven’t either. It would let the audience build him up throughout the movie.

While I totally disagree that the Emperor diminishes Vader in any way, I do think this is an idea worth exploring.
I love the idea that we’d meet the Emperor at the same time Luke does.

As far as Vader being bossed around diminishing his character, Nah man. The Emperor is THE Big Boss. Vader is his guard dog. Even Tarkin outranked him and bossed him around. Vader just doesn’t hold the rank many fans think he should.
