Sequel Trilogy Rescoring Ideas Thread
Time

I think while John Williams should have been an executive producer for the music from the trilogy, i think Michael Giacchino should have been the main composer. His work on Rogue One helped implement the old music while also bringing something completely new.

I don’t like the idea of the music in the new trilogy simply being a ‘‘greatest hits’’.

The Phantom Menace - anyone want to chat about TPM?
Time

As i mentioned prior, i think Hal’s edit fixes all my issues with the movie. I am glad it is nothing like the originals, i’m glad TPM is it’s own thing, and while ROTS is definitely a better movie, i think TPM is more interesting to me.

Someone pointed out to me that Maul’s horns have putty all around them, and since then it is so distracting.

Yeah but that comes out of nowhere and isn’t a fitting conclusion to what began in The Force Awakens. She needed to grow past the shallow need to fit in and have a father figure, and become a whole person. Instead it’s just regression.

The name Skywalker is a legend by the time we get to TFA, and by the end of TROS it makes me feel like anyone can be a ‘skywalker’. She carries on the legend at the end of TROS, she is the ‘Skywalker’ that rose up to destroy the Emperor. It’s a story that will be told by others, just like we see at the end of TLJ when the kids talk about luke like a mystical creature.

I can completely understand your standpoint on this, and i know her carrying the name is a very divisive thing.

Can we get some love for Yub Nub?
Time

jedi_bendu said:

I really shouldn’t be helping to kick off this thread by NOT giving love to Yub Nub, but so sue me, I have never liked it. It always felt annoying and strangely anti-climactic for me, the closing feeling for a film I really love. Victory Celebration, on the other hand… I love bittersweet-sounding music, and the piece is that and so much more. For me, it feels joyful, relieved, hopeful, all the rest. I would gladly do without the SE changes and watch the original version of ROTJ, if it weren’t for Victory Celebration. For that track alone, I choose the 2004 version every single time.

I agree completely with you. Growing up i remember Victory Celebration would make me feel sad, it felt like the very end. Yub Nub doesn’t make you feel like we reached the summit of the story. Throughout star wars we’re given music filled with beautiful strings and range, but this song doesn’t even have a feeling of star wars until the last 15 seconds or so.

Rey accepting herself for who she is instead of just pretending to be Luke’s long lost daughter would be a logical end to the character arc instead of just nonsense.

I think you’re misinterpreting it. Rey’s connection to the Skywalkers comes from Leia, listen to what Luke says when he gives her Leia’s saber. It isn’t that she looks at them as her direct relation, it’s about carrying on what they started.
She see’s the Skywalker name as a name for hope.

Star Wars: <strong>The Rise Of Skywalker</strong> Redux Ideas thread
Time

I was thinking, of the scenes where rey is on Ahch-To, what if it starts early morning when it’s still quite dark, and once we get to the scene where she takes the wayfinder the scene stays untouched to let us see that she’s been there for more than just 10 minutes and the sun is coming up.

In my opinion it makes the burning ship more striking visual, especially with luke emerging.

Why didnt Vader feel that he was literally in scenes with his own daughter and never felt a glimpse of the force.

Because…

He felt Obi-wan, and you’d think he’d feel his offspring, i know it’s all a retcon that they’re related, but that’s how i feel about any current issues, they always end up being ironed out.

Since ANH, We have had constant “dumb star wars moments” that get remedied in time.

Why was there a weak spot in the death star and no one noticed.

Why did obi-wan not tell luke he had a sister, it’s not like it would ruin any plan, matter of fact it would make luke care more about saving her.

Why didnt Vader feel that he was literally in scenes with his own daughter and never felt a glimpse of the force.

Hal 9000 said:

Well honestly it’s to say I changed something while I was fixing the graphical issues. But, I always felt the chess cameo was a little distracting and unnecessary.

This I agree with. I’m not opposed to fan service, there is actually a cool bit of fan service when Finn is looking through stuff and finds the blaster ball droid from ANH, its shown but it’s not a blatant attempt like the chess scene. The chess scene works in TROS because it feels like the characters are actually using it in-universe.

Prior to the sequels star wars was always self referential but that was built upon with each movie, this is one element the sequels fail at doing. The prequels were the last released movies before the purchase, which in my opinion means that reference wise they should have been more prominent in the sequels.

I think Rogue One remedies this issue at times, like seeing Bail Organa & Mustafar.

Hey everyone ! I’m done with working on the DS fight for the crackling saber and I don’t intend to modify the shots from now (but I can always share the AE files so that one can make the modifications wanted). All the shots are available here, now the only thing needed is to reunite them !

I’ll try to share the Exegol sequence next week.

This is absolutely insane. It’s incredible.


Not sure if this is something you would want implemented but watching your work on the crackling saber inspired me to make a few sounds to match it.

That’s what my meds do. If I don’t take them I just slouch around on Discord all day or something. When I take them, I have the drive to actually do something. The problem I ran into today was not knowing what I wanted to put that drive into. I have the energy but nowhere to direct it. I haven’t felt truly passionate about any of my projects for a long time, and it’s killing me. Without a project to occupy me I don’t know what to do with my life. Plus, I didn’t register for any classes this semester mainly because of how unwell I’m feeling emotionally, so I have all the time in the world but nothing to do with it. I don’t dare to commit to something without my heart being in it in both classes and personal projects, so now I’m stuck running in circles. I just can’t seem to hone in on one, maybe two particular projets to work on. I guess I did start that music video. I should finish that. Regardless, I feel so apathetic to everything even with my meds giving me the motivation I don’t feel comfortable taking on a task that should be for my own pleasure knowing I’m faking it.

It’s none of my business to know what meds you are on, i wouldn’t want to impede on your privacy, but relatively speaking are the medication for pain or would they be along the lines of an antidepressant?
I’m not sure what country you live in, but i think you should express this to your doctor, because either way medication shouldn’t be able to swerve you one way or the other and it be looked at in a positive light.

Random Thoughts
Time

In my early teens i got obsessed with 2Pac’s music & Death Row Records in general. I had, and still have, hundreds of unreleased 2pac songs, some versions of the songs never leaked, for some reason when i got into the community deep, people would send me the tracks they would buy & i would remaster them to the best of my ability (and at the time i would winging it but i kept that to myself lmao).

Death Row was sold to a company called WideAwake, and around the same time i came into possession of a bunch of death row songs, i uploaded them on on my old youtube channel, these songs had leaked before but in varying quality.

Within a day i received an email a cease and desist, but i hadn’t opened my email in about a week, and a day after getting the cease and desist, they sent me a screenshot of my ip address threatening me. I laughed it off because i was young and someone involved with death row was threatening me like i was an adult.

Legends material you would like to see reinstated into canon?

Dash Rendar and Prince Xizor. Everyone is always dismissing Dash Rendar as discount Han Solo, but I still think he could work, make him more ruthless and far more driven by material gain.

Clan Ordo of the Mandalorian.

The Old Republic era.

Dash would work really well in an environment like The Mandalorian, and with the way Dave loves the implement legends material, we could see him in the near future.

The Old republic will 100% appear in canon again. The High Republic is the current goal at Lucasfilm & I feel it is a worthy successor to the OLD old Republic we know from legends.

BTW, Josh Holloway would be my pick for Dash, as he’s got that rugged devil-may-care look that perfectly fits with the character.

Hot damn! Perfect pick! Loved him in Lost. I would like to see him appear across several difference shows, similar to how Hondo appeared in Clone Wars & Rebels.

Tatooine causes people to age in dog years.

I agree somewhat with this, but i also look at force users as people who age faster the closer they are to the force and how they harness it.
Obi-wan aged the way he did because of a mixture of stress, the planets conditions & the force within him causing him to age that way.

So you’re saying that without the Force, Yoda would have lived 2,000 years?

In my head I feel that way, Yoda could have lived longer but his commitment to the force meant his life was shortened.

Grave Mistake (2008) - The Best Worst Movie Ever Made
Time

I consider Grave Mistake to be the best worst movie ever made. It has the weirdest script i’ve ever read for a Zombie movie, the jokes are so bad and hamfisted, but you will laugh anyway.
For those who haven’t seen it i wont ruin it, because it so so worth going into blind.

I wish i had a digital copy of it.

The Room doesn’t hold a match to this movie in any way. I love it to death, and over the years it has been the movie my friends and i sit around watching having a laugh. It is a pity Covid has put a strain on that, but if you have family or friends living with you, watch this with them. You will be scratching your head at the outrageous dialogue, effects & acting.

If you can get your hands on it, watch it without watching the trailer, the trailer doesn’t show off any of the dialogue or jokes.

Enough of me trying to hype it up, if you get the chance, give it a watch it will brighten your day and leave you bewildered.

In the same day, I managed to get trapped in indecision twice, once without my medication and once with. Not even the same decision. I think might have a solution to the second one. What do I draw or work on in general? I’ll just rotate. Pick a random project for the day, then move on to the next. Not sure if it’ll work but it’s worth a shot. It’s frustrating not feeling passionate about anything at all.

You’re best to keep yourself busy. I hope this isn’t TMI but To be quite honest with you, i’m stuck in a rut right now. I have a back issue since i was 18, im 26 now and it’s still as bad as ever, i had years where i had procedures done and i felt relief for several months, but now because of my medication i have put on so much weight that it’s sad to look in the mirror, so i haven’t looked in the mirror in a year, the week before christmas was the lowest i ever felt, i have never been driven to ‘let go’ if you know what i mean, but the week before christmas i was nearly fully checked out and ready to let go, but if i could tell past self something, it would be to keep moving, keep busy, remember the things i love and try to stay on GO mode.

jedi_bendu said:

That’s a pretty common criticism. It might not be so much of a problem if the film didn’t also contain an anti-semitic stereotype in the form of Watto and Neimoidians with stereotypically Japanese accents and behaviour.

I think it could be said these were simply oversights and the filmmakers never intended the characters to be seen as racist - they often gave existing accents to alien races (Twi’leks sound French, for example) although that’s definitely questionable in itself. It’s still a totally valid thing to criticise TPM for.

You are 100% right. It doesn’t matter if George had his best intentions in mind, someone involved with the creation of the movies should have realised what was being done. I don’t like the idea of using stereotypes to make the audience laugh at a character, not laugh with.
It has the same issues that the Harry Potter series has when it comes to stereotypes & caricatures of cultures.

I’m not offended, but there should have been atleast some awareness on George & the producers part that they were feeding into something that would be perceived as insensitive.

Thanks, and absolutely, yeah. When making a film, you might not intend something as racist, edgy or offensive in any way, but you should keep an eye out for it, because stereotypes like that can ruin someone’s enjoyment of your movie. It’s like films having underlying political meanings. You could be apolitical and not be writing because of something you believe, but people are going to have a political interpretation of your work no matter what, so you’d be best to keep that in mind. Like, you want to make sure your buddy cop comedy flick isn’t inadvertently advocating for a police state or something like that.*

(*I’ve no example in mind, and in the case of Star Wars, I think George Lucas thinks very deliberately about the political message of his films anyway so that’s not a criticism)

A New Hope for instance is George’s way of bringing the Vietnam war to the big screen through the eyes of a fantasy story. In it there are no insensitive insinuations about characters, there are no stereotypical accents. He avoided the whole problem in the original trilogy completely, but once he wrote the prequels it seems he was implementing too many ‘real world’ elements under the guise of worldbuilding, hence my issue with the Neimoidians & the Gungun’s portrayals and accents. it could have been avoided, but now we’re stuck with it.

Sorry for randomly bumping the thread again, i will say, this version of the movie is the version i will watch for life, my only issue (and i know it’s just stupid to even care about in the long scheme of things) is, i would have loved to hear palpatine’s voice say ‘find me’ when Kylo was in the Crait base, i think Poppasketti had that in his Rekindled version. It’s only a small gripe, it in no way makes or breaks this edit but i thought id mention it.

The Music Discussion Thread
Time

Michael Giacchino created some of the best music i have heard in star wars, and in so little time too!

The track ‘‘Your father would be proud’’ from Rogue One is perfection. Normally in star wars when big moments happen the music swells, but with the destruction of Scariff, he played it so mournfully & sweet. We felt the sadness, and we felt the rising dread. The track Jyn Erso/Hope Suite just melts my heart. It encapsulates my love for star wars.


I love John William’s work on the Originals & the Prequels, and tracks like Rey’s theme from TFA is beautiful, but his work on the sequel trilogy left alot to be desired.


John Powell did some brilliant work on Solo, his song ‘‘Meet Han’’ felt like it came straight from Knights of the Old Republic 2.


Ludwig Göransson’s work on the Mandalorian i feel is my next sweet spot in the star wars music world. His work on the show is so ballsy, he implements characters themes perfectly but he gave us a theme song that we can literally hum/sing from beginning to end.

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

JJ completely kneecapped Rian before Rian could even shout action.

We never saw a movie in canon take place immediately after the previous.

In star wars it has always been easy to make a character grow simply by letting time pass offscreen. Rian couldn’t do that, & while it would have been great to see atleast a year pass like Hal mentioned in his commentary so the change in atmosphere & things could have felt a little easier to accept.


I am happy with TROS (Hal’s edit remedies alot of my initial issues) it is literally this generations Return of the Jedi, and when you look at the movies from a production stand point they are very similar, so i am okay, kids will grow up and look at it as their ROTJ and that’s nice… but there is a part of me that wishes JJ would give the audience the middle finger and subvert the formula.

JJ has never made something that makes the audience think past the surface, and star wars doesn’t need to be so deep at times, but i would have killed to see something that made me feel different with each viewing.
