As for Kajimi I remembered some talk about it … man so much time ago … In my mind, at least, to help it feel a little more “natural” with the concept is not to make it full on rebellion/battle since it would quite feel right with the surrounding scenes that is is some kind of battle scene, but rather, more like a riot.

Why would trooper be knocking on doors and people being afraid? Why would the Poe and Zorri scene be so … “calmish” when they are in the middle of a battlefield? That’s why a riot, or at least something on those lines would be a bit more natural and flow a bit better in the surrounding scenes.

MR: Good to have you back and hope you can get a new computer! I know trolls and online stuff can get tiring, which it is good to take a break from time to time or whatever needed!

Thanks for the update Hal on the state of things. So it’s simple, we just need to make Faraday work all night, since sleep is over rated. Also, just hunt down Jonh and convince him actual work, providing for family, etc. is obviously less important than clipping Luke’s hair. Oh, and Nev to work. My goodness! /S

(Of course joking, I just wish I had the tools and the know how to do anything.)

<insert ROTJ celebration scene>

Anyway, the Leia scene Sherlock did works well and I’m thinking the “end of her Jedi training” is sounding good. Really liking these adjustments.

As for the other topic with 3P0 … not sure there’s much to do since it’s such a mess, direction wise. “Such a noble sacrifice scene … let’s make a joke out of him for while after.”

I think the main problem with 3PO’s memory wipe is that the film itself doesn’t even know how it wants to play it. On one hand, they frame it as a touching farewell/sacrifice (“You know the odds better than any of us.”…“Taking one last look, sir, at my friends.”) But then every other moment, they turn it into a farce. (“I’ve just thought of something else we can try-”…“Whoever this Chewie person is, this is madness.”…“How dare you? We only just met!”

So half of the memory wipe stuff is dramatic, and half of it makes 3PO the butt of the joke; if we want to commit to a tone here, we’d basically have to cut half of the references to the memory wipe either way.

I agree with that thought, it was handled so … randomly. I am not sure what can be “realistically” done to help, asides from removing the actual dramatic stuff since throughout the movie the crew/movie treats him as a joke after that … so trim one dramatic thing or trim a bunch of joke stuff? Lol what a mess.

Though Hal’s approach to remove the memory backup does help maybe to actually HAVE stakes and is probably all that can be really done. I honestly think JJ thought “Hey let’s have at least this serious moment that’s undeserved, but the rest of it is a joke since we will restore his memory anyway.”

I was supposed to return to work last Saturday but 80% of my staff caught Covid from Fridays event and we had to close before I even got to run my event. I can’t do anything until I can return to work and afford a new computer unfortunately.

Yeah, we all used video co pilot plug-in. It’s awesome but a nightmare to get all the layer effects looking good as it’s a frame by frame task plus animating masks. I can’t even open after effects to give someone my settings. Sorry!

I appreciate those getting in touch and asking after me but life really sucks right now.
