love these vhs cover creations , I took my dvd copy of force awakens and played it through my old apex dvd player hooked up to an old portable tv/vcr combo and made a vhs copy of it . Might do the same for Rogue one and display with all my other vhs star wars movies.

Why not just put a random VHS in the box? (you don’t actually intend to watch it on tape, do you?)
I totally watched it on tape !

‘Rogue One: The Birth of Hope’…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpSb8Y_8hr8

The blurb : ‘This video essay examines how ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ symbolically bridges the tonal divide between ‘Revenge of the Sith’, and A New Hope. In doing so, I uncover the underlying archetypal ascension tale that drives the story towards the original saga.’
 

^ Thought it quite interesting and well worth a watch; some good insights and intriguing interpretations too.

Well done indeed. Having seen it many times, I thought I’d caught most of the deeper symbolisms. However, one that seems to have gone right over my head is when Chirrut yells to Jyn “The strongest stars have hearts of Kyber”. It hadn’t occurred to me that he was speaking about her as well as to her. I like the idea that he’s attempting to enlighten her with the knowledge of her own inner strength.

I recently updated my gallery with a digital Rogue One movie poster I created , would be cool to have it on a vhs box . please give me credit if you use it .https://screamsinthevoid.deviantart.com/

I miss many symbolisms in films - I did get a few of the Rogue One’s though - but a decent video like that always helps (me anyway 😃) I also find it adds that little extra to the characters too upon later viewings.
 

I’ll give that Storytellers video channel a watch - seems they’ve been around a while and have covered quite a range of films and tv. I found their Terminator video to be decent and quite insightful too.

Whoever did that did a good job of merging the screencaps.

Nah, sloppy one, as you can see the seams. “I know because it’s me.” Adjusting light levels would take more than a couple of minutes I had to spare…

I have always had plenty of ideas, and groaned that most of SW merchandise is cheap, unimaginative cash grab.

Next: I want an animated screensaver like what they have on that screen:

Kind of TRONish, don’t you agree? I love how most R1 displays are a bit 1980s sci-fi style (read: somewhat dated by todays standards).

I saw the original theatrical release of the Old Trilogy on the big screen and I'm proud of it...
How did I accomplish that (considering my age) is my secret...

That might actually get me to use a screensaver again.

It’s one of those new Disney covers, from what I can tell they’re trying to move DVD copies of everything from Pixar to Marvel. This one being Blu-ray seems like an exception.

Looked good on my iPad mini. I could do a better job myself if I felt like spending the time. I might. I’ll submit it for your approval if I do.

I don’t doubt the symbolism and positive message / encouragement he was trying to impart to Jyn with saying that but he actually says “stars” not “starts”.

Why are you guys still talking about this movie when everyone knows it’s a terrible movie compared to ROTS and unlike ROTS no one will care about it in the future?

That’s Mala’s opinion mate - and she’s welcome to it - despite seemingly, and somewhat desperately, trying to portray her opinions as some sort of fact.

(as long as Mala doesn’t carry on repeating this across the site, or is baiting / antagonizing / trolling others with it - especially after being asked to stop doing just that - which I am sure she wouldn’t do…)

Oh, dude, come on, be serious 😃 We’re on a forum where some opinions about some movies are considered facts (such as “PT = crap”, “Disney Wars = gold”) and never realy opened for debating. Dare to say that a PT entry is better than any of the new Disney movies and you’ll get a full crowd repeating you “you’re wrong, you cant’ say that, you’re mad, blablabla”.

and yet you spent a fair bit of time in Rogue One fan edit threads on a film that in your opinion with ‘No story, no characters, no emotion, nothing (emptiness at its best)’ and ‘in a few years from now people won’t really watch R1 anymore…’ and even contributed to…

Yeah, fanediting is fun and I welcome and respect any attempt to make a bad movie something better and watchable, especially in the SW universe. Some people managed that with TPM and AOTC, so it’s possible with R1 as well. Besides I really do like most of the faneditors around here that happen to be very cool and interesting people, so if I want to contribute I believe I do whatever I want. Or is it against this forum policy ? Would it be better for you that everyone on this forum thinks this exact same thing about each SW entry (each time an “non” orthodox ranking is published the exact same members eract immediately the exact same way… every fucking time, like some kind of “Thought Police”) ? I’m wondering 'cause I can’t remember when you called Frink’s and others excessive behaviors on this matter trolling as well… (edit: hum… maybe that one time recently but that all I can remember)

(as long as Mala doesn’t carry on repeating this across the site, or is baiting / antagonizing / trolling others with it - especially after being asked to stop doing just that - which I am sure she wouldn’t do…)

Last time I checked I was the one being trolled/provoked every f****** time and you know it, but… anyway 😉

“I have to say that I felt George’s group of six films had more innovative visual imagination, and this film was more of a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you had seen before, and it took a few baby steps forward with new characters.” - James Cameron about Episode VII.

As I said you’re welcome to any opinion - and that is welcome and encouraged. I would suggest looking deeper into other members’ opinion of the PT, and recent SW releases - you’ll find a mixed bag of differing opinions. Yet, as the title of the site is what it is - many are more fans of the OT. The ‘you’re wrong, you can’t say’ crowd aren’t as vocal these days - and usually state their reason why regardless (and will be asked to explain further, if not).

Your opinion is valued.

and yet you spent a fair bit of time in Rogue One fan edit threads on a film that in your opinion with ‘No story, no characters, no emotion, nothing (emptiness at its best)’ and ‘in a few years from now people won’t really watch R1 anymore…’ and even contributed to…

In case you missed the point, it was you spend a fair bit of time in fan edit thread for a film ‘no story, no characters, no emotion, nothing (emptiness at its best)’ - and other negative opinions you have expressed towards it. Though thank you for the fan edit explanation - it seemed to me a little strange that someone who dislikes something a fair bit would spend time in threads about it - yet cool, nice one.

The ‘Thought Police’, preferring everyone be the same? Against forum policy? non orthodox ranking? Frink’s behaviours? -
What on earth are you talking about?

If you have any issues then please let one of the moderators know via PM - as you’ve always been welcome to do.

I’ve seen members provoke you - yes, and I’ve asked them to stop - in public or via PM. I’ve also seen you do some provoking too. Yet to the point I was making - I’m sure that’s not going to continue, is it? And you can always contact a mod via PM if you this occurs again - or for any other issues/problems.
 

To the overall point of my post - which you seemingly missed in a rush for a post of indignation towards me in your fanediting paragraph… you are welcome to your opinion and it is valued - though try and keep this oft-repeated opinion from appearing across the board, ie AdyWan’s thread. It’s shame when their threads get sidetracked with shite like this - they contribute a lot, and are cool and interesting people, no? (that’s rhetorical - don’t feel the need to answer).

 

Anyway, back to Rogue One…

+1 vote to Jason for ‘best, most reasonable and level headed mod while still posting as a normal member’ of the year award 😛

Though I think that’s most of the mods here from what I’ve seen so far, but you’re killing it man! …or at least you are for your 3 month probationary period ha ha! XD

Probationary period? I thought I had tenure! Doh! 😉

Ah, I feel bad. I think everyone who felt a little worried then are ready to move on.

Mate - you have nothing to feel bad about in the slightest. My post is a just a reminder that there are many differing opinions and points of view - and somewhat jokingly that 'Val may about to be informed as to some of them 😃

The old saying… ‘you can’t please all the people all of the time’? should be attached to a mod’s screen before the day starts 😃

 

Though can we get back to Rogue One, please 😃

I noticed last night watching Empire that one snowspeeder pilot’s callsign was Rogue Two, but there was no Rogue One. Maybe there’s a retcon out there in the canon that no one uses that name in honor of the original Rogue One? Just a thought, and probably wrong.

Sounds reasonable. I always figured it was just because Rogue 1 = Rogue Leader, but I haven’t really revisited that thought since before Rogue One came out.

^^ Cool. I like that.
Watched this for the second time last night. I feel about the same about it as I did leaving the theater back in February. It’s cool and fun. First act should be cut down and simplified. Darth Vader lava planet scene is funny for the wrong reasons and should have been left out. Third act is great.
