evilest men of earth
Time

^ That’s okay mate - I don’t think we have a World War Two thread, so toppling one of the most evil men - and his regime - in history, fits well in here.

Any favorite scenes?
Time

I was looking through The Worst Scene/Sequence in Any Star Wars Film thread earlier, and thought it’s been a while since I’ve thought about some of the great / favourite scenes from the films.

This one sums up mine from Empire…

I think I may be most partial to the Carbon Freezing scene … and Chewie’s performance stands out the most. Watch that scene again from Chewie’s perspective and it’ll hit an entirely new emotional level.

 

Also a scene from Rogue One, it’s the Cassian scene at the Rebel Base hangar, where he and a small group of Rebels decide to join Jynn and take on the fight themselves (after the Rebel Alliance leaders have decided not to)…

Some of us - well, most of us - we’ve all done terrible things on behalf of the Rebellion. Spies, saboteurs, assassins. Everything I did, I did for the Rebellion. And every time I walked away from something I wanted to forget, I told myself it was for a cause that I believed in. A cause that was worth it. Without that, we’re lost. Everything we’ve done would have been for nothing. I couldn’t face myself if I gave up now. None of us could.

Wow - I’d have to do some serious saving (or suppressing of impulses) to go there - though looks a quality range of merchandise.

 

That Imperial Guard helmet looks very cool too 😉

I’m surprised that people still argue over physics in SW. These films have broken the laws of physics for the sake of entertainment since the first film. Not to mention that Lucas, and especially Kershner, were quite adamant about SW being fantasy and not true sci-fi.

Yes, same here.

Edit: love that documentary - and well worth a re-watch.

Dealing with People Selling Fan Projects
Time

^ Going on that video I think he did know it was not okay to buy them mate…

The guy somehow glossed over and omitted the part of ‘Fan Edits must never be bought or sold’ on his video (around 7 mins in) - despite talking about what was on screen in detail before that particular line of text.

He also linked to the site - so he is very much aware that fan edits and preservations etc must never be bought and sold - and also likely aware that Harmy even made a video on the very subject, here:-
