Best Performance by an Actor/Actress in the Star Wars Movies
Time

I think everyone peaked in TESB, I don’t think there’s a single actor that sticks out negatively.

From the new ones, I really like Daisy but the material she’s been given doesn’t do her justice. I think she’s a great young actress. Adam also is so effortless that you don’t actually see it, but when you see him in interviews he’s completely different from an intense, unstable and sensitive guy. And he also looks like 10 years older IRL.

General Star Wars Questions

In the Star Wars universe, what kind of pilots are there?

Luke wanted to get off the farm and join the Imperial academy as a pilot, so being a pilot in the military is one.
What others?

Of course there can be civilian pilots for shuttles, transports, freight ships up to a cruiser size vehicles. I doubt Luke was wanting to join the Empire or the Rebellion when he wanted to join the academy, just to get a pilot’s license or something and then gone off with that.

your thoughts: Did Disney kill star wars because it sounds like they did with the last jedi solo and resistance.

Han does ALOT in ROTJ: he saves the day with Boba, he helps to get the crew into the Ewok village, he fought tooth and nail to get past the guards at the sheild generator, he placed the charges, he saved Leia from a trooper and he comforted Leia when she learned about her parents. Yeah that’s nothing.

By accident. By getting trapped. He got captured right away. Leia saved them both shooting the troopers. Yeah…

FINALLY watching the GOUT Trilogy properly

Is there a benefit to actually watching these versions at all today though?

They’re really the best version of the OT that we have.

Not really if you’re a member of this site.

They’re the best commercially-released versions of the OT. And I am a member of this site. Since 2006.

I said above that DarkJedi’s versions were one of the most watchable versions, IMO.

Well, that’s clearly a different thing. Mocata surely refers to the point that there would be no reason at all to watch the GOUT as “we” already have SW in 4K and many other HD options. So if you are already posting on this forum where you can get access on these goodies I’m not sure why there would be any reason to watch the GOUT anymore. Except to know the right magenta hues on your monitors.

Technology (Televisions, Computers... etc.)
Time

I have a question. I have an AV receiver and all devices go through it via HDMI. When I watch anything from my computer through the receiver to my TV, it creates lag. From AV settings I’ve put it as “direct”. If I use some basic encoding like PL, the delay is about 8 ms. If I use pure direct (the sound comes exactly as it should) the delay goes to 20 ms. Any idea what’s creating the lag and how to get rid of it?

Science Fiction or Space Fantasy - what is Star Wars
Time

Even though maybe GL was after some fantasy, having heard ILM and production people they’ve had a little more scientific view on the film when designing ships and technology. So you can’t put it all on George as there has been a lot of thought put into things we see in the film, like what is possible and what is not in the SW universe.

Would anyone here have this in hi-res? It was used in a VHS cover that I’m using as a base for my 4K cover. Help would be much appreciated. 😃

I uploaded a variation of this poster in my shared folder: https://mega.nz/#!Z9tyWYgC!XueP1oCYxE4iNAlSTziLJSaSkZqjWWyPybjeIhE54rQ

Thanks, I’ve already seen that one but I’m looking for the original… 😦 That one has been edited way too much for the GOUT release.

What did everyone here think of the game adaptation of Revenge of the Sith? I personally wasn’t a fan of the PS2/Xbox version. I thought it was very repetitive in its gameplay, and I felt that it didn’t offer a whole lot to come back playing. The adaptation of the movie has many deviations. Some of the deviations are cool, and some of them were weird. Especially that Padmé doesn’t make a single appearance in the whole game! I actually got a bit of a kick out of the GBA/DS version, though. What did you all think of this game adaptation?

Very lazy money-grab game back in the day when they had to make every big movie into one. Zero value other than it had scenes from the movie before its premiere.
