Oh my crap something actually leaked! Live action Star Wars from the era of George Lucas
I recently rewatched The Director and the Jedi documentary this week and I just had this sense of happiness about Star Wars again that is rare for me to feel.
I have had a ton a things happen to me in my personal life and it has been almost too much to handle, but while I was watching the documentary it felt like I was transported to just before the film came out. Things online were simpler, nicer (i guess). The sense of dread that I have been feeling around Star Wars discourse and online discourse in general just went away for a brief moment in time. I miss that.
If you’re looking for books I highly recommend the first two Myst books! Amazing story and writing, and you don’t need to play the old PC adventure game that they are based on to enjoy them
One thing that I don’t really like but I understand is the warping in the trailer for the Force Pushes. What was the impetus for it
Love it! Keep up the amazing work I can’t wait
Alright where am I gonna talk about this apparent Colin Trevorrow script leak…
I can’t believe this is real. The timing is just too convenient. It originated from a very specific corner of the internet that has a very specific agenda. Yet now main stream outlets (I say this tepidly) are picking up on and talking about the story.
Does anyone know of a way to commission custom steelbooks. The Best Buy next to my house is selling Fallout 76 steelbooks for $5 a pop since that game sold garbage
Here’s a bone headed idea. Obviously the crawl would have to be different and not reveal Palpatines survival, but… and hear me out.
We open up on the Falcon in flight to get information from Boolio, that whole scene plays out. Then we move to Rey training and that whole scene plays out and the change comes when Kylo is reaching out to her in the force.
Kylo reaches out and we get all of the flashes with some added TLJ Luke in there, then it smooths out and we see an editing version of Kylo’s excursion to Exegol. This way the reveal is for later in the film, but we still get to see it right before Poe informs the Resistence.
It makes sense also for Kylo to flash images of the Emporer to Rey since he is trying his best to manipulate her to the best of his ability, doing this would set her on edge at an earlier point.
I just like the idea of opening up on the Falcon too
I mean I was sitting in the theatre and when the emperor’s theme started playing over an image of Rey I literally freaked out at how similar they were. Being a music composition minor in my undergrad, this similarity might not have been planned from TFA but Williams clearly pushes the similarities for this film
A friend that I have known my entire life who came to my limited guest wedding is getting married next month…
I’m not invited
It seems everyone else in our tightly nit circle is going to be there. My parents were invited…
I was not invited
No matter who I ask they’re invited too. Pretty much everybody except for me.
If only there was a way to fix Obi wans reshoot hair during the part with the droidrkas
One thing about the broadcast that doesn’t make sense to me is if he sent this out to the whole galaxy then why are the Resistance surprised when Boolio gives them the information that he is alive? Shouldn’t they already know this because of the broadcast?
It’s not probably possible but maybe change the reason then went to Boolio is they were trying to confirm what they suspected?
Or cut entirely?
The force Skype lightsaber fight
The scene with them repairing the Falcon is when Jana reveals that she was a former storm trooper. One can assume they finished up repairs and headed back to base. I didn’t think it was a huge leap.
I mean it doesn’t really hurt my enjoyment of the film, I still liked it, but it does seem a little jarring
Alright during the Rey Kylo fight in the water Finn and Jana are inside the wreckage, then 10 seconds later they’re on top of the wreckage, then Rey pushes Finn through the waves, then we see them on Ajan Kloss with zero explanation of how they got there or when they repaired the Falcon. Just a small scene needed to be added to fix this…
Small thought from second viewing before I give my full thoughts on it.
Both showings I went to people laughed when Ben and Rey kissed. Thinking about it, the score pushes this a little bit since the score completely cuts out right before Rey says “Ben.” A score coming out tends to imply a joke and people felt awkward laughing, but the way the score pushes for that made it happen I think.
Idk, maybe. Tomorrow is viewing 3 so we will see what I think after that.

Tenet (wasn’t shown when I saw it opening night)
Google Pixel 4: Stars Included (for some reason)
I just wish the movie ended slightly differently! I’m seeing it again tonight and then again on Thursday to try and solidify my opinion of it
I actually am really sad because watching TFA and TLJ there were cheers but I got tickets late so I guess I was watching it with not die hard fans except for the people I was with
The theater I was in for my first viewing could not help but laugh when Rey and Ben kissed! Then when Ben falls over I muttered “of course” and the whole theater laughed again.
I have very mixed feelings about this film. Going to see it again today and I will have a better understanding of how I feel about it.
Hey ya’ll!!! I’m in! Can’t wait! See y’all in like 3 hours
Only have been able to watch half of it but I must say the change in color when Kylo first takes off his mask is amazing and helps that scene so much!
