i like it, but what is the alternate take on this scene for comparison?

Author

hmmm. personally i like the halo top ice cream, but i don’t recognize the old one so… YMMV

Star Trek 5…IIRC. Can’t remember for sure which one it was but I think 5.

Yeah that was my other guess. I like 6 but have only seen it a few times and not recently, and I only have 5 because you sent it to me. 😉

That already came in handy, and those cantina knock off scenes will too eventually. 😃

When Grievous is punching Obi-Wan on that landing platform you could put in the line “I need one more fucking hit!” from Trainspotting.

This is borderline experimental

I think you’re onto something with the jigsaw puzzle transition. Try to include the most ridiculous transitions possible.

There’s two full edits of that stuff already released.

Brilliant, I really like it, the original commercial was pretty special and this is a great call back. I think it works better than the previous take on the scene, honestly.

BTW, sorry I’ve been away for a few months, hit the ground running with something completely new to me at work. Anyway, I’m back now, so let’s Make Star Wars Funny Again!

^^I didn’t realize it was from a commercial. It’s way funnier now that I’ve gone and watched it!

I actually suggested Frink make that ad into what happens to Padme after she dies. 😛
Where’s Anakin?

Bump. Any thoughts on the above?

poke. i didn’t comment before because i don’t really connect to the gag, so i don’t care either way? maybe someone else does, but i say go with your heart/brain.

Well it’s more about if the scenes flow together ok or if it’s too choppy, rather than the gags themselves.

well, yeah. in that case, i guess i think it is choppy, but I imagine someone who enjoys the gag more might not mind.

so basically, my feedback is kinda useless and i shouldn’t have given it 😃

I was actually about to finally watch and comment without the bump, haha. When you say choppy, how do you mean?

Is it that you reuse the same footage over where Obi-wan walks over and puts his hand over his mouth, or that the Vader/Robocop bit gets interrupted?

If either of those, I’d say neither is a big problem.

Actually, having the Gauntlet bit completely by itself makes for an overall less jarring, easier to follow transition to the Gauntlet material than the previous non-ice-cream version did.

I was talking about anything that appears choppy, but specifically the transitions back and forth between the two different scenes. Sounds like it works though.

I know this will be hard to believe, but I made legitimate progress today.

There’s a workprint currently in my DVD player.
