The Last Jedi: Official Review and Opinions Thread ** SPOILERS **
Time

I enjoyed this film a lot, apart from a few (well, more than a few) missteps.

The Yoda force ghost looked bad - especially the very first shot of him. I didn’t think the blue aura surrounding him was pronounced enough. Maybe force ghosts begin to fade with time?

It was nice that he still had a sense of humour - something not seen in a long while.

What if OT. com had a physical copy request Topic?
So people can ask some one to make them a copy and discuss reimbursement through PMs?

I tried downloading the files for the Despecialized trilogy once, it took about 24 hours - for one film. I also downloaded the software used to convert the files, the software did nothing, I gave up.

I still don’t have the Despecialized versions and have never seen them.

I would never pay for a fan edit/restoration. The 2006 OOT non-anamorphic DVD’s will do for now, until these films are shown the proper respect they deserve.

After researching I found this https://youtu.be/gwIbM_uS8aA a direct way to talk to them so go post comments but please keep it civilized.

Reading some of the comments for the video link posted, the person responsible thinks he’s doing OOT fans a service. Satisfied customers are praising this leach.

As some others have commented - Lucas is the real villain for withholding the original versions.

What 'a Star Wars Story' / anthology / spinoff film would you like to see?
Time

I’d like to see a film dealing with Imperial recruitment, ordinary folk (no BS clones) signing up to make a difference in the galaxy. Seeing them trained as officers, pilots or troopers - like a two hour recruitment/propaganda film.

Seeing the Imperial conditioning/brain-washing used on these individuals, to turn them into a positive force for good. A conditioning that equates (in their diseased minds) the rebels to womp rats - vermin to be exterminated.

I know this sounds grim but I like the idea. Or DISNEY could put an uplifting, positive spin on this and turn it into their STAR WARS take on a TOP GUN-style fantasy.

@ChainsawAsh, I think it will be more like this:

•2015: Episode VII
•2016: Rogue One
•2017: Episode VIII
•2018: Solo
•2019: Episode IX
•2020: Kenobi
•2021: Johnson I
•2022: Anthology (Fett)
•2023: Johnson II
•2024: Anthology (Jabba)
•2025: Johnson III
•2026: Anthology (Palpatine/ Crossover/???)
•2027: Episode X (just in time for the 50th anniversary)
•2029: Episode XI
•2031: Episode XII

I mean, how many Anthology films can you really do? Every character in the Original Trilogy? That’s just ridiculous to do one EVERY other year for 12 years straight.

What are your thoughts?

That’s a lot of new action figures to collect.

I just find it hard to get excited about anything Star Wars related these days, when the actual movies that started it all aren’t even available and are being ignored by the copyright owners.
And after seeing the first two Disney-SW movies I would happily trade all of the “Rogue Ones” and “TFAs” in the world for a proper restoration of the OT.

Amen. Throw in HAM YO-YO: The Movie, too.

Are retrospective changes just fan service?

Imagine Lucas thinking:
If i had known that you fans like this guy so much, i would have never killed him off. Sooooo, here he is! Just for you! I directed him to look right into the camera … well, basically he is looking at YOOOUUUU!

I never liked those additions, they’re sh*t.

Instead of adding pointless shots of Boba slumming it with the two b*tches, they could have used the SE Boba actor to redo those flipped shots and fix the issue with the range finder on the wrong side of his helmet.
