Another thing that rubs me the wrong way is the idea that I can’t possibly understand how awful it is that females appear nude in film because I’m not a woman that’s sick and tired of the objectification (and by the way there’s plenty of women that don’t feel that way). I may not share the same anatomy with women, but I definitely have more in common with 99% of women in this country than those women have in common with the actresses that appear nude in film. The main thing being that neither of us have or will appear nude in a film. Also, what if I wanted to make a film with nudity in it? (Female nudity of course because that’s more offensive.) Am I supposed to hire an actress for that role and then change or delete the nude scene because she, even though she accepted the role, doesn’t want that to be filmed? I know I’m a male and all, but isn’t it up to the actress? Assuming the actors aren’t mistreated in the process of making the scene, why is it offensive whether the scene is necessary or not? Don’t we respect the bodies and decisions made by women? That’s what I thought we were supposed to do but apparently I’m behind the times.

Many an actress has a nude double. Both the worst and best kept secret in the industry.

That’s also pretty common. I don’t see a problem with that either if they can make it work effectively. In that example I gave, though, sometimes the actor’s face needs to be in frame for it to work, especially if there’s interaction between characters during the scene.

I think there have been a couple instances of digital head replacement in recent years.

her brief topless scene the next season with the same body double for consistency.

Lol. I would hope most viewers aren’t that discerning.

What on Earth is weird about it? He asked for clarification of which family members. I was already discussing that subject, why is me clarifying that I mean “not just with my parents” weird?

I think it’s the ‘just’ that comes off as weird. As if it should be obvious that it’s less awkward to watch a sex scene with one’s little sister than their parents.

Lost In Space (2018)

I enjoyed it. I rolled my eyes at the frequent “emergencies” designed to create action/tension, but overall it was solid. It was cast well, the effects were seamless for the most part (the physical sets were great), I liked the Robinson family dynamic, and Dr. Smith came across as a genuine sociopath.

couple of eye roll moments, yes. But I actually enjoyed some of the cheese. Would we have gotten to see them escape from a submerged humvee using a helium balloon if he hadn’t stupidly jumped back into a humvee sinking in tar???

well, i think that the “so this is how liberty dies - with thunderous applause” moment in RotS is absolutely amazing, for example.

A scene carried basically 80% by John Williams. It’s good, except it feels to me very un-Star Wars.

Yes. That scene felt incomplete. I wished we had more background on the origins of the parliamentary procedures.

I guess if you grew up with the PT I can see why that would “feel like Star Wars” because it was part of what initially defined Star Wars to you.

Basically. It’s funny, though, when I was younger, I liked the prequels fine. They weren’t my favorite SW movies, but I enjoyed watching them all the same, and I associated them with Star Wars. Last time I watched them (I think it was in advance of TFA), though, they fell completely flat. I always did release order, and the second half of the marathon was nothing like the first. They just didn’t feel like SW anymore.

Haven’t watched a prequel since. Though I’ll probably watch TPM again some day.

Lowry Digital Images hasn’t existed for ages now, since 2010 I think?
I do know that Disney did get a print when making Rogue One, they wanted it as reference to make sure they matched the look of the original Star Wars. It may have come from the LoC.
If the request was more recent than Rogue One, it might be for some other purpose though, which would be interesting.

This story made the rounds before RO was released. Makes sense then. Though it’s hard to believe Lucasfilm doesn’t have prints on hand or something else better quality than the copyright deposit.
