On an unrelated note
For Attack of the Clones, can anyone think of a way to cut the scene where Palpatine meets with the Jedi and Padme (at the beginning) while still communicating that some Jedi are being assigned to protect her?

You’ve got to ask yourself one question: “Am I making Carrie Fisher’s ghost proud?”
Well, are ya, punk?

Isn’t the next scene Anakin and Obi-wan talking to her about how they’ve been assigned to protect her? You might be able to just cut the Palpatine meeting and let it be.

The real value of the Palpatine scene imo is that it’s basically the only mention of Dooku until Geonosis, but he’s underutilized in this movie (and its sequel) anyway.

That works, I suppose.

I later understood that the wounds were being cauterized but still. I miss the bombastic squids used in the 80’s like in Robocop haha

You know, I actually had an idea for an R-rated Star Wars, complete with sex and nudity. It’d be doable with some actors’ other works and deepfaking.

However, we have to be honest, the SW community is extremely immature and conservative about sexual material, so it would be negatively received (in public) and get a lot of spiteful attempts to stop it.

Too bad, there’s enough source material out there to make it work…maybe I should take another crack at it.

Probably NSFW to click on.

We did it boys. A Star Wars movie with a sex scene.

I guess that transitions into the bed shot nicely, but still, why?

Gotta lose the voiceover. Sounds like Schmi doesn’t want her son having sex

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Toying with the idea of adding more intimacy. ROTS is only 6 months after ATOC and she gives birth in ROTS. So it gives more time together instead of. They kiss and then get married. Theres not a lot of connection for them, especially going into the climax of ATOC.
Now when Padame gets blasted off the ship onto the sand dunes and Obiwan warns him that hell be expelled from the Jedi, it has more hit as Anakin has already crossed that line and his face in that moment reflects it. It gives more reason for Anakin to do what he’s doing as, he’s shared more than a kiss.

Its just an idea so far, but i did try to keep it clean (Removed any thrusting motions and nipples).

This trilogy shouldn’t feel like the originals though. The originals follow the classic hero arch, and our Heroes Han, Leiah, and Luke, should reflect the difference in their actions and choices. Where as the Prequels are a Greek Tragedy imo. Anakin’s actions reflect what Han and Luke could have become had they fallen to the same emotions and lust. Anakin refuses to give Padame up, where as Han is willing to let her go in ROTJ to Luke (not knowing he’s her bro). Luke chooses to remain pure of women, lets Han have Leiah and chooses being a Jedi (Leiah wouldn’t have chose him anyways, but from Lukes pov, he’s not pursuing against Han ) . And when the final moment comes of Sidious using lightning while forcing a tough choice, Luke chooses different, causing his father to turn finally.

Those are just some reasons why i think a lil bit more serious angle to the prequels helps. Though i could try to tone it down a little more some how. Im a ways off from AOTC so i could try to find a way to make it more suggestive somehow. Idk. Working with whats out there too.

Why? Does it not fall under “Radical Redux Ideas”? haha Or just too controversial on its own? Theres no nudity

As much as the idea is “Radical!” and it does intrigue me, I’m not sure about the NSFW nature of it and how distinctly NSFW it is in comparison with the rest of the thread. I don’t know, I suppose that’s up to the mods.

Good stuff, though!

Last time I checked the Clone Wars were supposed to take place in a span of three years…

Hmmmm. Not sure what qualifies as NSFW. I did try to make it pretty pg as per cinema standards. No nudity, thrusting, etc. Also can try to make it more suggestive.

Also, is there a way to mark things NSFW and do a pop down view so only viewable if clicked? Not sure how all that works on here but have seen other forums with that option. Def not trying to go graphic, obscene, or offensive with any of this. Its just simply looking for more narrative options in add more intimacy to their story.

I once got warned by a mod for posting a gif of Patrick Bateman thrusting during a sex scene - the shot only showing Chris Bale’s face and upper torso, Admittedly it was off-topic - I assume the main offence - but I did also get asked to keep it SFW.

Was just unsure about things. Trying to err on the side of caution.

Haha yea i tried to keep out any thrusting from the scenes. I could see how thrusting, especially viewable from the hips upwards is too much. The scenes i showed are largely just kissing, with one shot from the back of fingers running down a back. So tried to keep it tasteful. Like i said though, im a little ways off from ATOC so ill try to see if i can’t come up with something else or where this lands.

Also, i think a gif viewable from the thread as opposed to a link to an offsite location from this site is a little different too. You don’t have to click the link if you’re at work more or less, and as long as you don’t, just being on this thread won’t show anything.

Edit- I added a note to the original post just in case haha Probably NSFW

You realize that pornography and liberal sexuality is not the same thing as maturity, right? And that you’re basically taking the same stance as an adolescent?

I really hope this is all just a reaction to some one wanting nudity hahah and not the idea of Anakin and Padame hooking up in an ambiguous tasteful way as i tried to do. Such strong reactions seem equally as adolescent and unnecessary, but thats just me.
Explaining to kids Luke kissing his sister is far more awkward. Plus Han copping a feel when Leiah is shot in ROTJ or slave girls boob pops out when Jabba drops her in the pit.
Just saying, Star Wars has its odd moments. All of which i think should be taken with maturity. I don’t think the mods would let anyone post smut on here, so i think we’re all safe. I agree tho that there shouldn’t be any added nudity or over sexualization of anyone.

As for the scene i attempted. I tried to keep time with the music cues, so tried to fill that time. I picked kissey scenes and slowed them by 25%.

I can probably slow the initial kiss down instead a little bit, keep the transition shot of the lake side house at sunset, maybe include a shot of a fire place going out of focus while you hear (kissing?), then fade out and transition to the nightmare scene. (may try to mask in her head into shot when hes waking up). That way its less Titanic like.

Would really like input on this and be able to talk like mature adults on how best to handle their relationship.

Included a shot from the “Mock up” love scene, plus also a shot from my old Machete Cut, in which there is a lil blood when Anakin takes Dooku’s head.

This is what a more mature Star Wars could be like.

Which for some may like, as before ROTJ, Star Wars wasn’t cutesy yet.

The kiss for luck aboard the Death Star feels pretty cutesy to me.

No, that’s just creepy lmao If i were to edit the originals, Luke kissing his sister 3 times would go bye bye lol I think the most cutesy thing up to Empire was Yoda and the droids. To be clear though, the Ewoks never really bothered me, but i do see how they made the films more kids orientated and Lucas started focusing on toys more.
I liked Rogue One for having the stones to kill off everyone. The Vader hallway scene is perfect
