<em>Star Wars: The Clone Wars</em> To Return With New Episodes
Time

I think the season 6 thing was a mistake.

And I don’t have a source (also haven’t watched the panel), but what I’ve heard is:

Apparently they only got enough money for 8 new episodes, but used some of it to finish those 4 too, or something like that.

Presumably in order to give more of a “full” season.

My advice to anyone with an EA game: do not buy until the reviews come out and the inevitable controversy leaks.

They always make the game seem perfect, then comes launch. I didn’t buy Battlefront 2 until after they confirmed a change in micro transactions. I bought it not feeling ripped off.

Likewise I chose to skip on BFV following their controversy.

Well, that can be said about new EA games. Old games that EA doesn’t really put out anymore I would say are safe to buy.

I don’t know about you, but I always wait for the reviews to come in before I buy an old game.

Han - Solo Movie ** Spoilers **

Ron Howard probably wasn’t deep enough into the material to know if it was a good idea or not. If he shot the Maul footage in the first place.

Peter Serafinowicz(sp?) was on a podcast recently where he talked about recording lines for Maul for Solo, and he said Ron Howard talked with him for like an hour about where Maul was at this point in his life, and his motivations and such. It was before they shot Ray Park’s live action portion - Park performed to Serafinowicz’s performance.

Then the powers that be decided to go with Sam Witwer instead for more continuity with the animated Maul, and Serafinowicz wasn’t told until after the premiere that his VO had been cut.

So Howard is who shot the Maul stuff.

Annoyed that 4 of the 12 episodes are ones we’ve already seen before (they finished the Bad Batch story reels). Apparently they only got enough money for 8 new episodes, but used some of it to finish those 4 too, or something like that.

If they were gonna make 1/3 of the new season stuff we’ve already gotten, it should’ve been Son of Dathomir, which is a pretty important bridge from The Lawless to Siege of Mandalore, and is only available as a hard to find graphic novel.

Your thoughts on the Episode IX title - <strong>'The Rise Of Skywalker'</strong> - a NON-SPOILER thread
Time

Matt.F said:

“It’s time for the Jedi to end…” maybe the title means that a force sensitive person will no longer be called a Jedi, they’ll be called a Skywalker?

The previous film opened the door to the galaxy being filled with a new generation of force sensitive, perhaps Rey and the Resistance choose the title ‘Skywalker’ to denote them as a homage to Luke?

Yeah, this is the theory I was talking about earlier.

Time

I’m not saying I think The Rise of Skywalker is a good title, but it’s way better than AOTC.

As far as the titles go, to my mind:

  1. The Empire Strikes Back
  2. The Last Jedi
  3. Revenge of the Sith
  4. The Force Awakens
  5. Solo
  6. Return of the Jedi
  7. Rogue One
  8. The Phantom Menace
  9. The Rise of Skywalker
  10. A New Hope
  11. Attack of the Clones

Gout vs faces vhs which is better?
Time

Nah man, the motion smearing is only mitigated due to the objectively inferior visual fidelity of VHS. Since DVD is a clearer, sharper picture, the DNR smearing becomes more apparent.

I’ll give you audio, though - it’s the same mix, but analog HiFi on the VHS and compressed 192kbps AC3 on the DVD.

For the 1993 telecine master, which is the same master used for the Definitive Collection laserdisc, the Faces VHS and laserdisc releases, and the GOUT DVD:

Video: DVD > LD > VHS

Audio: LD > VHS > DVD

And that’s pretty much objective fact. You might prefer the VHS because the format’s deficiencies hide some of the master’s inherent flaws, but it’s not actually better than the GOUT DVD release.

As for which of the LD releases of the 1993 master is better (DC or Faces), I couldn’t say as I don’t own a laserdisc player.

Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *

Digging this shot of Ms Tran. I’m really hoping she has a more substantial, adult roll in this. She looks great here and appears to have a more important roll in-universe.

Agreed. It would be so shitty if she was cut, or her role reduced significantly, due to the B.S. backlash against her. She was great in the part, any issues people had with the character were from the writing (I was fine with it except the “saving what we love” line). Especially when I saw way too many people saying stuff like “Thank God they got rid of her, she was horrible!” when she wasn’t on the leaked poster.
