<strong>The Empire Strikes Back</strong> - a general <strong>Random Thoughts</strong> thread
Time

Now that there is a dedicated ‘Original Trilogy Discussion’ forum on the site, and the General Star Wars Random Thoughts thread is in the ‘The Expanded Universe & General Star Wars Discussion’ section, some of us on here thought it may be a neat idea to have new ‘General Random Thoughts’ threads focusing on each of the three Original Trilogy films.

Plus another thread for ‘General Random Original Trilogy Thoughts’.

In other words… a few threads for some light discussion of these much loved, iconic and ground-breaking films.
 

And so:-

Star Wars (1977) - a general Random Thoughts thread

The Empire Strikes Back - a general Random Thoughts thread

Return Of The Jedi - a general Random Thoughts thread

The Original Trilogy - a general Random Thoughts thread

Cassian Andor Live-Action Series

I am hoping to see more of the birth of the Rebellion in this Cassian Andor series; would very much like to see Enfys Nest and some of the characters from Solo again, plus Draven, Mon Mothma, and some of Saw Guerrera’s gang from time to time.

To see some Imperials defecting or realizing the side they may be fighting for is not what they think it is.

It would be fun to see Alderaan and Dantooine too.

And K2’s humor again as well 😃

Same here my friend 😃 All those and more - I hope we get more details on the series soon. Number of episodes, length of each etc to give us more of an idea for the series, a list of guest actors could be interesting 😃

The Kenobi <s>Movie</s> Show
Time

I am hoping we a small part of this kind of inter-action from the fan film below in the real ‘Kenobi’ series, the releationship between Obi-Wan with Owen and Beru (which obviously affects and restricts his relationship with Luke growing up) - along with some imperial entaglements 😉

It was released on Xmas Eve and had over a 1 million vies within 3 days, despite not being advertised much. It has has 2.5 million views which is quite impressive in such a short space of time for a fan film.

I had a feeling this was going to be a Thor Skywalker video before I even opened it.

And the issue with that is? Why don’t you just try listening to an alternative opinion and make up your own mind at the end whether you agree or not or even just agree with some parts while discarding others. That’s all I do, I take new information or opinion on board, analyse it against my own view and go from there. Sometimes I dismiss it, other times it change’s my own opinion, often to a better and more informed one or one that isn’t so narrow in it’s scope anymore.

You spread repeated negativity across the forum on here - and not much else. You claim to hate TFA/TLJ and not be bothered with TROS - yet you repeatedly post negatively about the film on here - a lot.

People like yourself, who continue to post this type of content (depsite you not seeing the film?), are the reason others have left here in the past, others have left here recently, and others are thinking about leaving too.

It is way beyond ‘valid criticism’ or opinion - it is an agenda. Some have said it is ‘like a crusade’ and I laughed heard when I heard that - but they are probably correct, it is certainly appearing that way.

I am only surprised the moderators here continue to allow it.

 

Maybe you should open up your own ‘Valheru opinion’ thread and post your thoughts in there rather than pollute the forums with anything that aligns with your endless and negative agenda. And post the videos of youtubers well known for only not liking the new Star Wars films (and profit from that hating on the film and the people who make them) which you agree with, and want other people to also view - despite not having seen the film yourself.
 

I think I’m done here for a few weeks here too. Maybe longer.

Episode VIII : The Last Jedi - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

oojason said:

Bar calling out the toxic fans - the racists, sexists, homophobes, trolls, death threat makers and announcers, and bullies who chase people involved in films they don’t like off the internet etc… I haven’t seen quotes from Rian Johnson chastising genuine criticism of The Last Jedi - I’ve only seen quotes from him stating he was perfectly fine with fans expressing genuine criticism of the film.

Perhaps someone can provide quotes from him to the contrary? (I am somewhat surprised nobody has done so previously.)
 

I don’t think anyone has posted them because such quotes don’t exist. To me it is a myth, spread by people looking to continue the hate on the TLJ film or the man who made it.

Personally I find such claims to be actually toxic, as they are without foundation or fact. Both a lie and smear. Rinsed and repeated.

I like TLJ overall, yet the film still has several big issues for me, but I’m not going to lie and make up shit about it or about the people who worked on it, and I don’t understand people who do.

If Rian Johnson called out a bunch of people fitting the descriptions you posted then good on him. I wish more would.

Current Events. No debates!

Sorry you and many others didn’t get that change Jason.

It would seem any of the people in the background of that photograph may have been a better option than what you guys got in the end.

 
 

I’ve been following the election the best I can on your Guardian site, there many high quality articles and points of view on there, and came across this riveting read:

Why is the president of the United States cyberbullying a 16-year-old girl?’…

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/dec/14/trump-president-greta-thunberg-bullying

I am posting that trying to highlight the way everyday people - without power or money behind them - are silenced or ridiculed, or made to feel inadequete or somehow wrong to do so, in voicing their opinions (and not so much about the politics).

Caring about the environment in a peaceful, simple and informative manner is apparently worthy of scorn for some. More time is spent on scorning people for raising issues than actually addressing the actual environemtal issues, well - that’s how it seems.

I need some feedback on this approach, before I either give it the green light or the bin:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pl7oIDRXkmw

This change is to TRY and up Kylo’s stakes in the film, and also make his motivation later on to betray Snoke clearer. Audio happily borrowed from a YouTuber.

I like the concept of it quite a lot and think it does up the stakes and give an insight into why Kylo may feel he is being played for a fool by Snoke (afterall, Kylo has already killed his dad…)

It did require a few repeat viewings to hear clearly what Snoke was saying - despite that it was some good voice acting (just the audio levels were a little off) - or I need another hearing test 😉

I think it is a solid idea, mate.

Cheers, bud. I agree. He should by now feel that Snoke is only using him to get rid of important figures, not by any concern or care for him.

I love this, adding to Kylo’s conflict, that his actions have been manipulated - and that Snoke doesn’t think of him as worthy, as Kylo wants himself to be just that to Snoke - makes his turn vs Snoke later all the more telling. A profound idea.

Ah, I see you have decided. Sorry (though still a good idea 😃 The volume was an issue for me, but I thought the Snoke voice was very good - and was just change of tone, or attitude, from within him.

@oojason How did you know JSteven was ForceGhostRecon all along?

It would seem he did not know until recently.

If you are asking how the moderators may be able to identify socks on here, surely you cannot expect him to tell us?

Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 - MKV (Released)

Hi all- newbie here. I am trying to get this for my sister as a Christmas present but I am not super technologically savvy… would anyone be willing to to save it to a thumb drive for me if I mailed it to them with a self addressed stamped envelope to send it back? If this is not an ok question let me know and I will delete. The rereleased versions suck so bad and the VHS we have is slowly dying…

It may be worth mentioning which country you are in Cmajeau? It may aid your request for help. Good luck 😃
 

There are also some step-by-step instructions for some different options on how to acquire the Despecialized Editions here:-

That is quite a specific list Matt1618 😃

In the An Index Thread (and more) for Case Covers, Disc Labels, and Fan Art… thread there is a list of generic cover websites and also some sites that scan covers of older content; it is worth checking them to see if they have any?

Or maybe posters or art that can be used to make up your own - based on the official covers?

Will the recent bans on certain types of conversations be lifted and will certain previously banned users like TV’s Frink be allowed to return?

silverwheel said:

Viva Silverwook and Anchorhead!

Or: The Admin is dead! Long live the Admins!

Have you looked at normal threads throughout the “old” OriginalTrilogy? They’re littered with “banned” symbols. History tells us that, in a change of power, one of the first things the new administration does is to free the prisoners of the old regime (who were mostly political dissidents, or otherwise “accused” before a “kangaroo court”). Even TV’s Frink, well known as a free-reigning trouble-maker (just look at his post history), also deserves that same clean slate.

Or: Down With Proposition #3,204

The second thing the new administration does is to strike down the myriad of old laws, which were a never-referenced excuse for arbitrary tyranny anyway, and replace them with brief basic principles.

So, I SECOND THE MOVE for amnesty, or jubilee, to remove ALL old banned status from the old OriginalTrilogy, for the new OriginalTrilogy. Regarding donations, there are always strings on donations, both plus AND minus, so that’s a pseudo-argument. Finally, I finish with a reminder, and good luck to us all:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXrmQBPg2s0

It’s been over a year since the political dissidents in question were banned, and it’s been almost a year since the changing of the guard. If they were ever gonna be allowed back, it would’ve happened by now. Also, the mods have made it adamantly clear that it’s unlikely their bans will ever be lifted, even with Jay no longer calling the shots.

I continue to detest the verdict, and I believe it’s effectively killed Off-Topic, but them’s the breaks.

Frankly, I don’t think they care. Really the only reason this site still exists is the preservation section. They don’t give a shit if the rest of the forum is a ghost town or not.

The moderators?

imp-ardnfi - wow, creating a sock account seems to be quite a strange way to ask and attempt to persuade the mods to overturn any previous decsisons or bans because you believe they were done in a “kangaroo court”.

That the enforcment of site rules was “arbitrary tyranny”.

Seems you are a likely banned member yourself - maybe a troll going on your post here - and this cowardly way of asking for “amnesty” to be let back in.

Good luck with that.

Unusual <strong>Sequel Trilogy</strong> Radical Redux Ideas Thread
Time

I’m quite looking to forward to seing some ‘3 in 1 Edits’ of the Sequel Trilogy upon the release of the TROS blu ray. Should be a great way to come up with ST Edits without many of the scenes that some people seem to have issues with.

And some of the other 3 in 1 Edits for the Prequels did a decent job given the source material too.

Hopefully we’ll see more deleted or cut scenes from all three films in a later ST box set?

‘What year is it? I thought we were done talking about who shot first!? Little did we know, another change was waiting to hit us out of nowhere. I don’t think anyone predicted yet ANOTHER change would be made to the Mos Eisley cantina scene when the Star Wars films were released on Disney+. But they were. Greedo now says “MACLUNKEY”, and apparently George Lucas made this scene prior to the Disney acquisition of Star Wars. I sure didn’t think I’d be making another Star Wars Changes video again…’
