<strong>The Rise Of Skywalker</strong> — Official Review and Opinions Thread

The real question is, why not release the deleted scenes? The only other film in the franchise that has no deleted scenes with the BlueRay is Rogue One, and we all the story with that.

For the unenlightened, could you share the story? I didn’t like Rogue One so I haven’t paid much attention, but I’m interested in the production.

Easier way to get to my profile page
Time

Sometimes I like to go back to threads where I forgot to subscribe to see if people have replied to something I said. However, I have trouble finding my profile page. I need to see a thread where I was the last person to reply, and click my username, which takes me to this link: https://originaltrilogy.com/user/ot2k/id/31490. Could there be a “Your Profile” link in the top right by my profile picture?

What other, non-SW stories do you want to write/tell?
Time

I really want to see the friendship of the four Marauders from Harry Potter fall apart during Voldemort’s rise to power. It would be a little revisionist, but it would be cool if Pettigrew had an actually compelling reason to betray the Potters (maybe he worked at an orphanage and Voldemort held them hostage?) and why Lupin never got in touch with Harry until he became his schoolteacher.

Star Wars 1313
Time

Looking back, it’s a bit too derivative of Uncharted and the like, but the concept of a deep underground prison in Star Wars was so awesome. We kind of got something similar to that tone in The Mandalorian with the prison transport episode, but of all the Star Wars media that died with LucasArts, this hurts the most.

Downloading from Google Drive
Time

I was just overly cautious because last time I dl’d a video from Google drive I got a cease and desist from Disney.

Were you perhaps downloading other things around the same time? Otherwise, this doesn’t make sense. Your traffic to Google Drive is encrypted by TLS, so at most an outsider could see that you are transferring encrypted data from google.com (no URL past that, as it’s encrypted). And I don’t think Google shares its private traffic data with other companies.

Rey's lightsaber color
Time

Has anyone noticed that Rey’s lightsaber color is different throughout the new trilogy?

Here it is in the forest at the end of The Force Awakens, with a very saturated blue hue: https://imagesvc.meredithcorp.io/v3/mm/image?q=85&c=sc&poi=face&w=2000&h=1047&url=https%3A%2F%2Fstatic.onecms.io%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2Fsites%2F6%2F2019%2F11%2Fforce-awakens-1-2000.jpg

In The Last Jedi, it is almost a pure white, with what appears to be a wider blade, and a subtle hint of blue around the edges: https://imgix.bustle.com/uploads/image/2018/7/3/2975e8e5-47a9-4ec9-b2a4-01adf4eddcd7-ep8-ff-005212_d758b3b8.jpeg?w=970&h=546&fit=crop&crop=faces&auto=format%2Ccompress&cs=srgb&q=70

The Rise of Skywalker seems to be a hybrid of the two approaches: https://m.media-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BZTY1MDI5ZTMtNWMzOC00Yzk2LWI2YmItZDQxZTdkNTYyYjc4XkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyODkzNTgxMDg@.V1.jpg

Do you have a favorite? I lean that TLJ is generally the best shot of the trilogy, but I really love the blue glow of the lightsaber in TFA, especially the way it lights up Rey’s face as we hadn’t seen that effect on human characters before.
