By “his son’s” do you mean “his brother-in-law’s”?

I think a lot of people thought that Kylo’s saber in the Last Jedi flashback was Luke’s old saber when really it is just the unmodified version of his crossguard saber.

are you sure? it makes sense that that lightsaber ended up being Kylo’s. “that lightsaber. it belongs to me.”

hi! sorry not to give a more detailed input, but the posts here are a bit lengthy and i really don’t have the time right now, so i’m sorry about that.

but about the crawl - i’m not a fan of the all-caps in general, i don’t think they’re necessary at all, so have you ever given a thought to only capitalizing FO? and not resistance? or maybe neither?

intersteller really needs a fan audio touch up or something, I tried to watch it at a friends house, and the dialog was inaudible, and the sound effects were enough to require earplugs!

Maybe your friend needs to friend rebalance his sound system.

yeah, from what i remember Interstellar’s sound mix is superb.

"ProPublica has obtained audio from inside a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility, in which children can be heard wailing.

Border Patrol agent jokes, ‘We have an orchestra here.’"

fucking sickening and revolting.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens - The Dark Cut
Time
  1. does “more bombastic version of the opening theme” means Episode IV’s version? because if so, brother, i’m against it.

  2. did you borrow the “rey > han in the falcon” and “rey >>>>>> kylo in a lightsaber duel” cuts from ironman23’s TFA?

  3. is the standard version’s ending going to end with TFA:Restructured’s stsbilized helicopter shot?

man, darthrush, you never cease to amaze me. every single cut you listed is one i’d make, too. so this is already my go-to.

I’m not sure what you mean in regards to LFL’s response, I haven’t seen anything like that.

And George always used to put his politics into Star Wars.

Articles with titles like “J.J. Abrams: ‘Star Wars’ Fans Who Didn’t Like ‘Last Jedi’ Are ‘Threatened’ By Women Characters — Exclusive” did a lot to fuel fan backlash against TLJ, and LFL in general, even if Abrams was more balanced in his actual words:

https://www.google.nl/amp/www.indiewire.com/2018/02/jj-abrams-star-wars-last-jedi-women-1201929593/amp/

The fact was, that bigotry was only a small part of the criticisms against TLJ, but LFL, and it’s representatives chose the focus heavily on that relatively small group of a-holes in big media coverage, and gave the impression that it was painting critics with very broad strokes.

The most explicit political comment Lucas made in SW, was paraphrasing George W. in ROTS. All other political sentiments was very well hidden in metaphores, and themes. I certainly never before saw “save the animals” or anti-kapitalist speeches in a Star Wars film before.

i wholeheartedly agree with this. once again dre nails it on the head. to be fair, i found myself defending TLJ to my very last breath in other places so that i wouldn’t be associated with the racists and sexists that are hating on the movie. ugh.

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

well i certainly miss lucas’ major input in the movies. the man was the very core of star wars - something that’s been clearly missing since he’s been gone imo. one can’t simply replace the core of something like star wars.

continuing a conversation me, dom and coffee had on another thread: i don’t think one can separate creation from creator in this case. to me, it’s just like if 4 guys all of a sudden bought the beatles’ rights and simply decided to produce new albums under the name of “the beatles” - they wouldn’t be the actual Beatles at all.

coffee gave me a very good example as counter argument though - comics - where you have multiple authors. so if i consider the disney star wars movies fan fiction, i’d have to consider 99% of comic books fan fiction. i’m not sure how to respond to that yet, but maybe i do consider all those 99% fan fiction. oh well.

i just wish lucas was still sort of the mastermind behind star wars.
