Sometime in the future, a new user joins named ana. ana is a troll with ties to violent gang-related business in the outside world, and seems to be attempting to recruit members from this site into his gang for some reason. It is generally agreed that he should be removed. The moderator gang of the site declares war. The mods banned ana.

I tried to buy the Despecialized Editions from him but I just got a gram of Black Tar Heroin in the mail instead. No wonder they call him Duracell Energizer…

Disclaimer: I did not try to buy any fan projects nor did Duracell Energizer sell any fan projects (or drugs) that I’m aware of. This post is purely satire.

@Puggo/ZigZig
I found mine at a Goodwill for like 15$. I was actually there to pick up a new VCR/DVD player seeing as how mine died and I stumbled across it in their pile of VHS tapes. The outer box is heavily damaged. It looks like someones kid or dog chewed it up.

@Skippy The Jedi Droid
Okay, let me dig them up. I’ll try to get them up tonight. If not tonight, I’ll do it on Sunday. I’ll PM you when I get it done.

You know the issue is getting bad when Harmy himself comes and comments on the video of LDSEntertainment.

He did? I’m gonna have to dig it up. This ought to be great.

@Oojason
In the “provide more info”, I wouldn’t even put that.
I would put something along the lines of “promoting the sale of bootleg media”.

You are free to put whatever you wish, of course 😃

If I’ve already chosen to report the listing under the ‘Copyright & Trademark’ option, then ‘Bootleg records or unauthorised media’, followed by ‘unauthorised copies of media (music, movies, television programs and books)’ sections - and then just put ‘promoting the sale of bootleg media’ it is just re-affirming what they are - and stands more chance to be ignored…

Yet if, by informing ebay, that the owner and author of the content has stated they are only to made available for free - and never to be sold… that may give the ‘ebay monitors’ a little extra push into action (they can’t later deny they weren’t informed that the owner/author didn’t want them sold for money if it that exact point has been made) - and they may well rest on the side of caution - with the content owner/author - and remove the listing.

Just my two penneth mate.

I don’t exactly watch a lot of content that needs reporting so thanks for the clear up, that’s probs what I should have done in the first place.

Personally my friends and I didn’t like the first Hobbit movie, so I’m honestly amazed the sequels got made.

I am like the lone apologist for those films.

I picked up the Extended Cut DVD’s the other day from Walmart and I just got through the first one last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. I haven’t gotten through the entire trilogy yet, but if the next two movies are as good as the first, I’ll put them on par with the LOTR Trilogy.

They aren’t as good as LOTr, I freely admit that. They have lots of problems, and there are huge chunks of them that you could cut out. But the accusation that they’re as bad as the Star Wars prequels is frankly just insane. The casting alone puts them head and shoulders above.

Yeah after getting through the trilogy and reflecting on it a bit, I agree. I’ll try the theatrical cuts next.

So someone’s selling Ady’s Empire Revisited. Just thought I’d share it here seeing as how it’s one of the first things to come up in Ebay’s VHS Tapes section.

Lmao his reasoning “I’m selling a case and artwork and the DVD is a bonus therefore I think I’m avoiding legal trouble”

Yeah that gave me a good chuckle. I’m just baffled as to why it was like the 3rd thing in the VHS tapes section.

I’ll check it out, thanks. Is it on the spleen?

No idea I loathe that place.

However, I believe you can find all of the Heavy edits through his vimeo channel. Some may also be on fanedit.info.

I’m not a fan of it myself but there’s a lot of great stuff there I haven’t been able to find elsewhere. I’ll hit up Vimeo tonight, thanks man.

I have this idea of turning batman begins into a star wars short film by cutting all of the film instead of the bruce training, Adding lines from TPM and ROTS, Removeing bruces name with anikin and skywalker, rotoscopeing swords as light saber, and adding OT and PT music. Maybe

I had the idea to make a Top Gun edit replacing the music with songs from Judas Priest’s Turbo album. For the 99.9% of you who don’t listen to metal and post on a Star Wars forum, that movie was supposed to use songs from that album but the band turned it down. I started to get into editing video and tried to remove the music from the audio but It was WAY too much work. And it took me 3 hours to process 20 minutes of standard definition video on my 6 year old laptop (I’m using right now.) I was going to make a thread announcing the project once I got some decent progress but It wasn’t meant to be. If you have the technical expertise I lack and decent hardware to work on, go for it.

One fear I have about the backlash against TLJ is that Lucasfilm might pull a WB/DC move and make overly reactionary decisions to “fix” things for IX and beyond instead of building on what worked. That was the major problem with both Suicide Squad and Justice League - instead of letting them both run their course and tweaking things from there on out, they made massive changes to both of them throughout production to respond to the criticisms of MoS, BvS, and SS (in the case of JL), resulting in the messy tonal whiplash of SS and the Frankenstein’s mosnter that was JL. I don’t want either of those things to happen with IX.

And before anyone claims that’s what happened with TLJ, it isn’t. TLJ was written and in (pre?) production before TFA even came out. If it was reactionary toward TFA, that was due to Johnson’s response to Abrams’ and Kasdan’s choices in VII, not the audience’s.

Considering the glowing critical reception and box office success, I doubt they’ll let a set of particularly loud fanboys change how they work.

Applying that logic, they are OT “fanboys” and you’re a TLJ “fanboy”?

Or maybe we could just leave the name calling out of it. As has been repeatedly stressed by mods in here - argue the point, don’t attack the person simply stating their opinion.

I don’t consider fanboy an insult. Just a descriptor. A small subset of diehards fans isn’t going to sway the direction of a series that caters to the widest audience of fans of anything out there, anywhere, these days.

DominicCobb said:
I don’t know what it is, maybe I’m tired of all the time I spent defending TFA, but I honestly don’t even think I can bother with trying to respond to a lot of these negative reviews. Maybe it’s the volume, maybe I’m just shocked that there’s even such an outcry to begin with. Our takes on the film are just so different that I honestly don’t know how to bridge that gap, besides just hoping these people see the movie again and get out of it what I, and many others, did. It’s really something.

I’ve also been meaning to ask you for a bit about the above post earlier in this thread - why do you feel the need to defend TLJ by replying to every negative review? Is this not a “review and opinions” thread? I’m for civil discourse on varying opinions as much as the next reasonable person but your position seems to be that you feel obligated to actively fend off negative reviews of this movie, sometimes to the extent of really getting in people’s faces and almost aggressively singling them out when they’re just contributing their point of view to the thread.

I usually find your posts to be pretty good around here Dom but in this thread I’ve seen another side of you that isn’t very pretty.

.Val

Look at my posts and look at how many negative reviews there’ve been. It’s not even close. I respond here and there when I find a complaint particularly egregious or think I can actually reason with someone and show them why I disagree in hopes of possibly swaying their take. For the most part I just ignore, for the reasons I stated in the post you quoted - because for the most part some of the complaints are simply beyond my comprehension.

Also, I don’t know why you feel the need to signal me out. I’m far from the only one defending the film. I won’t lie that I’ve had little to do at work the last couple days which has left me looking for a way to past the time, but I hope I don’t seem aggressive in my rebuttals - unless, of course, someone is being misogynistic or disrespectful to people with mental handicaps. I don’t really know what you mean about seeing another side of me, honestly, unless it’s in regard to that.

Also, if the mods decide to ban me, just know that I don’t take back anything I said when I was calling people out for their backwards bullshit. I’m sorry if I won’t let that stand. If the admin team feels fine with keeping toxic shit in while banning people who speak out against it, I don’t see why I should be visiting this site anyway. If the mods don’t ban me, nice. Let’s try to clean this up.

I’m going to use the personal vitriol aimed at me as an example. Oojason took issue with the way I worded a few things in one of my posts around page 30. Admittedly I responded a bit immaturely, but I edited my post addressing his criticism (and I felt like it wasn’t too big a deal, again, I responded kind of immaturely and I get I was being a little insensitive). I come home from work and hop on here to see 4-5 people calling me an asshole and such. I apologized a few pages later after coming home. I don’t mean to single you out, but can we please keep the personal attacks out of this please? You have no idea how disheartening it is to just want to talk about a movie to have several people dog-pile you over wording something poorly.

Last Album Listened To
Time

So I’ve just plunged into the British Brigade of Bad@$$ery known as the New Wave of British Heavy metal and I just listened to Grim Reaper’s Fear No Evil for the first time and I must say it F@#$KING rules!

The cover art features a skeleton riding a motorcycle through a stained glass window and it’s every bit as awesome as it sounds, I’d post a picture if I knew how.

Whereas Saxon are clearly inspired by Led Zeppelin, and Witchfinder General is pure Black Sabbath, Grim Reaper is pure Judas Priest (my personal favourite band of all time).

Lightning fast lead work, drums that punch through the mix like Howitzer fire, Steve Grimmett’s vocals are like an air-raid siren, and bass that’s inaudible. Absolutely excellent low-fi 80’s metal. HIGHLY recommended.

Besides the low production value it was so dull and short, what was this for exactly?

As far as I can tell, it’s just an innocuous saturday morning cartoon made for children kind of in the vain of Ewoks or Droids. I don’t get a lot of the outrage over it myself. I think it’s fine. If I was like 7 I’d probably love it, as I did with the '03 Clone Wars back in the day.

I watched it this morning, I disagree with some of his points but for the most part he knocked it out of the park.

@Hal9000
I agree 100%. When I saw the books on the Falcon, I thought I was just seeing things until my girlfriend said “wait, Yoda just said she didn’t need the what was in those books. He said that she had everything she needed.” or something to that effect.
