My buddy Godzilla has been
a symbol of the horrors of nuclear war
a campy Earth saving hero
a symbol for environmental protection
a mindless, lost and scared creature
a reminder of the atrocities of war
a threat that must be dealt with
a protector worthy of praise
a spotlight on a stodgy government
and much more!
He’s the best!

Even when he’s a giant fish-eating iguana?

Eh, sure. It’s fun to have one to totally hate on. It gave Toho a kick in the ass to make more, and they made a few great ones in the Millennium series.
It’s all water under the bridge now.

Do you think Toho screwed up by canceling the sequel to Shin Godzilla? To me, that one was the best.

I’ll forever love this scene

I kinda like him without eyebrows in a “Special Edition” like this.
I think the effect was done convincingly and it matches his wounds n’ burns.

I agree.

The only SE change that I didn’t like in that scene is him trying to look like Hayden by having his eye color changed from brown to blue and his skin tone changed to match the PT.

There is just one second of film in Rogue One (as he gets out of the bacta tank) where his face is visible, and he doesn’t have eyebrows there.

Within the OT alone, GL always conceived of Vader as a character who fell into a volcano and gets burned even before ANH.

It’s about Ben and Luke’s father and Vader when they are young Jedi knights. But Vader kills Luke’s father, then Ben and Vader have a confrontation, just like they have in Star Wars, and Ben almost kills Vader. As a matter of fact, he falls into a volcanic pit and gets fried and is one destroyed being. That’s why he has to wear the suit with a mask, because it’s a breathing mask. It’s like a walking iron lung. His face is all horrible inside. I was going to shoot a close-up of Vader where you could see the inside of his face, but then we said, no, no, it would destroy the mystique of the whole thing.

So I guess it would make more sense for his eyebrows to be burned off.

Hi adywan,

As a suggestion for this scene I would say to use the original unaltered face of Sebastian Shaw without the eyebrows.

How many good third movies in a trilogy can you name?

Return of the Jedi
The Godfather Part III
The Dark Knight Rises
Matrix Revolutions
Mother of Tears

Looking at these film’s, why does mostly every director always make the third film of a trilogy the lowest point in the series?

Glass

Now that I’ve rewatched the film and after reading what Kevin Williamson’s original treatment would’ve been had he been the writer for it…

Scream 3

But he does have eyebrows in Rebels.

Interesting.

Look Who’s back… (W.I.P.)

With the Sebastian Shaw force ghost of Anakin restored in this shot the scene of Luke removing Vader’s helmet revealing Anakin’s face should without a doubt be the unaltered original face.

But with that in mind, should the eyebrows be removed or left alone?

Star Wars is a buffet, enjoy the stuff you want, and leave the rest. 😃

I want to agree wholeheartedly. If only someone would develop Kurtz’s ideas for ROTJ into a comic or animated film.

I want to see it developed into a fan film, like Vader Episode I.

And also “Why We Fight: A Star Wars Story”.

Who says Han wanted to be reassuring ? 😄

Definitely one way it could be taken, especially since the betrayal would still be pretty real and fresh in Han’s mind after being frozen in carbonite till not long before. The fact Lando is obviously there helping with the rescue effort wouldn’t undo the emotional affects of the betrayal.

Ugh, here we go with this again…

Then which line from Han during that scene do you think is more appropriate?

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home is the fourth film in a hexalogy.

But it’s often considered the third film in a trilogy-within-a-series, beginning with Wrath of Khan. It’s even sold this way in some box sets.

If we can say crap like “Last Crusade is the third movie in a trilogy,” we can isolate trilogies within longer series.

Hey, wait a second…how many movies are in the Star Wars series now…?

Like the Mad Max films, yes you can isolate trilogies within a longer series: the first three with Mel Gibson and then the fourth and upcoming film’s with Tom Hardy.

And for SW, this December it’ll be 9 film’s for the main series: the PT, the OT, and the ST. And that’s just for the “Skywalker Saga”…

Nothing’s being stolen, and Doctor Who works canonically. The gender swaps actually aren’t to make women more equal to men, they’re almost all just attempts to make money on an existing property rather than come up with a new idea. The easy solution is just to not watch lazy remakes. That’s what I do.

Hi, adywan

During the Sarlaac Pit scene when Han is aiming the blaster at the Sarlaac’s tentacle around Lando’s leg, will you be keeping Han’s original line “It’s alright, trust me” or the SE “It’s alright, I can see a lot better”?

As a suggestion, I would say using the original one.

At this stage I am also not happy that he sold the franchise to Disney. I think he should have kept hold of it and simply allowed other directors to make new Star Wars movies for him with himself as Exec Producer / Assistant Director and story consultant or something like that.

Val

I agree.

But if I understand correctly, he did reach out to Ron Howard to direct TPM but he declined so whether he really did reach out to people for collaboration but they told him “it’s your movie you do it” or people really did try to tell him “you need to fix this script before we shoot it” or “I don’t think this is a good idea” but he refused to listen, or none of the above who knows.

He was a consultant on TFA and made a suggestion to Howard while filming Solo. I didn’t hear him being a consultant on the TLJ, I wonder why?

Time

When I was young discovering SW for the first time believed, I everything about some of the things that GL had said about SW. That the SE were always how he intended the OT film’s to be, that he had written the PT back in the 70s etc.

Then on the TPM making of feature on the DVD, I saw the poor decisions he was making as a director as if he needed to take a step back and let someone else do it and when he said “Jar Jar’s the key to all this” was when I realized that he was making this all up as he was going along.

As I got older, I started to see how ridiculous some of the irrational SE changes were and from reading information from other fans learned that they were a marketing ploy because ILM was not doing that well at the time and the SE (or was it the PT?) were made to generate revenue for the company.

I also never bought into the claim that he planned Vader being Luke’s father from the beginning of writing ANH because my take on it was “then why would Obi-Wan say something different?”".

What about you guys? Old and young fans, newbie and veterans; at point in your life did you realize that GL was just full of it?
