I don’t remember who, but I remember someone here a few years ago tried using James Earl Jones’s recording of the Bible to replace Vader’s line “Obi-Wan once thought as you do” to “Your mother once thought as you do”. I wonder what that would sound like with AI.
YouTube user HelloGreedo made what is IMO the best critique of how Palpatine is portrayed. When he first appears in the OT he was inspired by the Roman and Chinese Emperors of old, but the prequels made him so goddamn evil, more akin to a mythological creature from the Underworld.
He’s talking specifically about Clive Revill’s performance in Episode 5. The prequels didn’t make Palpatine like that, Ian McDiarmid did.
With the rebellion being a vague analog for the counterculture movement, could Nixon’s cracking down on its more radical aspects also be a part of how Palpatine was based on him?
No, but what it really meant to be a Jedi wasn’t fleshed out anyway in the OT outside of what it meant for Luke’s growth as a character.
It’s a long shot, but you might be able to achieve something mixing the movie’s audio with the isolated film score.
Cast a Mark Hamill look alike for 9 days’ worth of footage of Luke Skywalker’s daily routine for the trip between Tatooine and Alderaan.
I liked the fight from TFA. The choreography and set(ting?) were really cool, and Kylo Ren beating his gunshot wound was awesome.
I don’t like the prequels either but contradicting yourself on details is pretty different from an incoherent story
It’s a pretty cool idea in theory but I don’t find the timeline very impressive
I don’t think they have any sort of chemistry at all. I don’t think there’s a single scene where I can believe them as a couple, and based on George Lucas’s personal life I don’t think he has any clue what a good relationship looks like.
The Phantom Menace is the only movie which doesn’t have a reference to the Death Star. How could we add one?
This is in the Fanedit Care Package if you know where to find that
The internet has made so many political ideologies present
Avoid ideologies as a rule. People who follow ideologies have their heads in the clouds, and no ideology will be able to provide to you all the answers anyway.
I don’t know whether or not I should be left or right or centre or something else.
You shouldn’t adopt any political identity. It puts you in a mindset where the need to defend your camp and justify yourself outweighs your ability to engage with an issue honestly.
Who is right? Who is wrong?
Obviously in politics there are liars and idiots, but in general right and wrong aren’t really the point. There’s no one correct political position because many policies which will help Group A also screw over Group B. Just look out for yourself and the people you care about (in real life).
Am I a bigot and don’t even know it?
Would a seething racist even ask this question? The idea of being secretly bigoted without knowing is (usually) just predatory to empathetic people, the very people who are least likely to be bigoted. If you’re worried that you have an inaccurate view of a group you have little exposure to, just seek out candid exposure to them.
I’ve come up with a great analogy for why Anakin’s turn doesn’t work.
Imagine you have a romantic partner and they get into a terrible car accident. You’ve been in the hospital for 3 days and there’s a possibility she may die. You’re worried sick and have barely slept. Satan himself (for the record, I’m an atheist, but this is hypothetical) appears to you and says, “I’ll save her if you kill all of your neighbors, coworkers and their families, every friend you’ve ever had and their families, your entire extended family, and your partner’s entire extended family. This includes any of the children or babies.”
Who would do that?
There has to be some parallel between Anakin being tricked into becoming Space Hitler and the Senate being tricked into becoming Space Nazi Germany, though. I don’t think this is a mistake or a failure of the prequels, but genuinely how George Lucas views the world, or at least the message he was trying to convey.
Adywan did one for ESB and TrillaryDump did one for RotJ.
When my friends feel like rewatching a Star Wars movie, I’ve found that I’d much rather put on a prequel than a sequel. So I guess I’d say the prequels now.
In 1977 what did people think about a sequel? They probably expected one, even if they hadn’t been officially set in stone until later that year.
He heard about it
What should Rey’s purpose in the wider saga be?
If Anakin’s fight with Dooku in Episode 3 is supposed to call back to the Throne Room fight in Episode 6, it would be cool if Dooku called back to how Vader “must obey his master.”
Anakin would be left with the question in his mind of why a Sith would do that, which would be resolved at the end of the movie when he’s in the suit, having lost everything, and still obeying Palpatine. It would also make Dooku more of an interesting character, and retroactively add something to this scene in Return of the Jedi.
I seriously don’t know how much longer I can go on like this. Life really is putting me in the shitter.
Go outside. Stop spending so much time online. Go to the gym. Look for real, genuine friends (not internet “friends”). Look for a meaningful, long term relationship, not just getting off. If you’re unemployed, get a job. Stop watching porn. None of this is new to you because you’ve talked about stuff like this in this thread before, but you have to stop talking about it and start acting. Nobody’s going to pull you out of your misery but yourself. It’s way easier said than done, but you will do it eventually. Your attitude that you can’t go on much longer like this is correct. Your suicidal ideation is not because you want to die, but because you don’t want to continue living the way you are. Every day you indulge in the behaviors that make you miserable achieves nothing but delaying your rehabilitation by a day.
My sexual fetishes and sex drive are becoming a damned serious problem.
And for the love of God, stop posting shit like this on a public forum and just fix it.
I think it was a pretty interesting contribution G&G Fan. I’ve never read the original draft of Star Wars to be honest, so it was new information to me that one of the characters Darth Vader was based on was the father of one of the characters Luke Skywalker was based on. It shows that George Lucas clearly wasn’t just pulling him being Luke’s father out of his ass, even if that’s not what the intention was in 1977. With how pervasive the narrative that he just come up with this idea out of nowhere, and it didn’t exist at all to influence his decision-making before the later drafts of The Empire Strikes Back, it’s interesting to see this point of information.
Hey, even if he didn’t mean to, Tommy Wiseau made an unforgettable classic
Me and my dad still say “meesa” and “bombad” to each other, therefore Jar Jar was actually a good character. If he didn’t exist, we wouldn’t have that.
