Star Wars I - VIII Matching DVD covers?

^ any mods on there able to help you out mate?

 

 

Saw these earlier - looked decent and something a little different… (although for blu ray, they shouldn’t be too difficult to edit/alter for DVD etc - or just for ideas inspiration too.)

That’s nice, but the logos don’t match.

ANDREAS presents: Prisoner of Azkaban & Order of the Phoenix [REVISITED]

I know this might be controversial but I always hated the way time travel was portrayed in Prisoner of Azkaban. It’s this endless time loop where Harry and Hermione change absolutely nothing, they just gain a little bit of perspective.

By removing Hermione throwing that stone and Harry seeing “his father” at the lake you could make it look like it’s the classic way of time travel. It would make moments like the saving of Buckbeak more meaningful aswell because they actually achieve something.

Though you would have to find solutions to Harry and Hermione noticing the minister and Dumbledore coming (maybe add a footstep sound effect) and Harry getting saved at the lake.

I’d do this for the simple reason that I don’t believe closed time loops are logical.

I didn’t see any DVD sets

Probably because most of us have BDs. Honestly not trying to be rude, Blu Ray just eclipsed DVD a long time ago so most people don’t bother anymore with custom DVD art.

Personally, while I’m all for BR, I think DVD cases look much better than those ridiculous short blue things. The discs are the same size, so you fit a BR disc in a DVD case.

Star Wars Episode VII, VIII, IX George Lucas original story outline, scripts, treatments or his ideas

I would add that the only guy who could challenge Lucas is, to my knowledge, Gary Kurtz. Not even Spielberg can challenge Lucas. But Kurtz did that on 3 movies he produced for Lucas.

That didn’t last, though. He only produced the first two before creative differences drove him away from the third. He couldn’t change Lucas’s mind, so he walked away.

The Worst Scene/Sequence in Any Star Wars Film
Time

The scene with C-3PO getting his head swapped in AotC is by far the worst scene in the entire SW saga.

I think she’s better known as a Disney character in the U.S. than a literary one.

Poppins In space? That would confirm my theory Miss Poppins is actually a Time Lord. 😉

Well, there was Missy doing a ‘Scary Poppins’ routine in Doctor Who recently… maybe that’s not so impossible either then! 😄

Snoke is the Master confirmed?

I responded enthusiastically to my first watch of TLJ, and should emphasize that I don’t agree with the haters on the majority of things they love to complain and rave about it for. BUT on re-watching, it didn’t really hold up. Not because of FEMALES or anything like that, but because the main quality that made me feel excited watching it the first time – its subversiveness and unpredictability – no longer applied. Which meant that all that was left was the basic elements of the film – plot, character development, dialogue, etc. – and they had to stand on their own. And that meant an overlong movie filled with too many jokes that didn’t land, situations that made no sense, and characters that behaved stupidly.

Not to mention the hat trick Johnson pulled to make it feel like he was creating something fresh and bold was obvious on re-watch, and consequently it in fact feels even less original than The Force Awakens at times – i.e. the Snoke scene is literally almost verbatim the same as the Emperor scene in ROTJ, just with a TWIST. Luke sacrificed himself like Obi-Wan did, but it was more EXTREME. And so on. It remains somewhat interesting as a deconstruction of Star Wars, but in the end Johnson didn’t really capture what I personally like about Star Wars. That is especially clear when watched back-to-back with Solo, which DID capture what I like about Star Wars to a greater extent.

Interesting observation. I have yet to rewatch TLJ, but now I suspect this might become an issue when I do.

I don’t think I’ve updated my list in a while, at least since Solo. It changes quite often except for #1 and #2 so why not.

  1. Revenge of the Sith
  2. A New Hope

Same here.

  1. The Phantom Menace

Sure, why not.

  1. Attack of the Clones

Okay, what have you been smoking.

TV Show rankings:

  1. Clone Wars (2003)
  2. Droids
  3. Ewoks
  4. The Clone Wars (2008 Onwards)
  5. Rebels

You seriously put the 80s cartoons over Clone Wars '08? As mediocre as it is, even Rebels probably deserves to be above those.

Not huge on CGI animated shows. I respect that The Clone Wars especially has very good story telling, but I’ve never liked CGI shows no matter what the branding, and I’ve watched The Clone Wars from start to finish. I dunno, the aesthetics bother me. I realise that’s a personal thing though.

I can’t understand how you can dismiss a show purely based on aesthetic. I love Code Lyoko, and that show looks hideous.

Episodes I - VI will always trump all as far as I’m concerned, their ordering is purely viewing preference. The Disney anthology films I get a huge amount of enjoyment out of. Was very surprised by Solo especially, a lot of fun.

Certainly a feeling I can relate to.
