Time

Oh yeah, that could be removed. I didn’t really know it was an error. I just thought it was intentional, like “Boba fett…? Boba fett!? Where!”

You’re right. That’s what it’s supposed to be.
It’s not an accident or an error, but it is the same line repeated twice & a great candidate for a fix up.

Han Shoots First - Any valid reason to not have Han shoot first?
Time

Dek Rollins said:

Han shooting second makes him less like a cowboy. In a classic western shoot out, the villain generally draws first. Greedo drew first, and was holding him at gunpoint throughout the scene. In a western, if the villain shoots first, the hero gets shot. The villain draws first, so the hero has to react and draw faster to beat the villain to the trigger.

Right! It’s like George forgot what kind of scene he set up.

Greedo made it very clear he intended to kill Han at that moment, so Han took his opportunity to shoot first.

Another right! Han didn’t kill Greedo “In cold blood”, as George likes to say, he was clearly defending himself. Again, it’s like George forgot what was happening here.

Deepfake Tarkin &amp; Leia swap (Rogue One) (up on the Shamook youtube channel)
Time

Shamook has done the best Tarkin.

Derpfakes has done the best Leia (make sure you check this, his 3rd version).

Very Carrie-like facial performance!

As for Luke, I fully expect a revision that works on the animation. What we have now was done quickly right after the episode premiered. It’ll get further tweaks. This is par the course.
The face already looks much better and…

It definitely looks a bit better but I feel like the effect was already pretty damn good in Rogue One.

Arent we all on the quest for the perfect edits? even if its just a “little bit” better? hehe

For sure!

<strong>The Mandalorian</strong> - a general discussion thread - * <em><strong>SPOILERS</strong></em> *
Time

Oh, I get the excitement. “Here he comes!” “They did it!” ect.
But I’m reading reviews that seem to think Luke came outta nowhere & was out of place.
That’s what I don’t understand. I don’t think it was overly telegraphed that it’d be Luke, but if you know the OT, it’s just the logical conclusion. It’s organic to the world at this point in the timeline.

Time

Just a question:
Why was Luke showing up such a surprise to everyone?
As soon as Din took the mission to bring Grogu to a Jedi, I knew it had to be Luke.
I don’t watch the other shows or whatever, so I’m not familiar with those characters who may be around in this timeline, but at the end of RotJ, Luke is the Jedi who’s around. So, it seemed to me we were leading up to him the whole season.
I’ve seen some reviews say that “it felt like it came out of nowhere.” I very much disagree with that.
I wish it had been done better, but that’s another topic…

Why I Love Prequel Yoda (and what I think people get wrong)
Time

So when Yoda and Dooku pulled out their swords to go at it, this implied that swords still held some importance as to the winner of the fight.

Dooku outright says “It is obvious that this contest can not be decided by our knowledge of the Force, but by our skills with a lightsaber.” At the risk of being really hyperbolic… can you get any more antithetical to the core concepts of Star Wars itself?

Big This.
That line puts the mystical force aside for glowsticks.
Maybe the most telling line in the PT?

Despecialized or the Special Editions; Which do you prefer - and why?
Time

Handman said:

I’m not going to let you get away with this.

I’m laughing!

G&G-Fan said:

The subtle censorship I don’t really care about, the fact that others were left in makes me think it wasn’t censorship but rather Lucas thinking they reacted to late or that it looked fake rather then him thinking seeing people get shot is bad

No, it’s censorship. The edits are the only times we see unmasked humans being shot by our heroes & reacting in pain & “violent” death. The rest of the time it’s not in close-up, or it’s troops in masks.

As for the thread topic, I’m with Despecialized. A restored OT is the mission statement of this site & why I originally arrived a decade ago. I want the film as it was. A beautiful time capsule of state-of-the-art film making in 1977.
When I want an SE, I’ve got Revisited.
Official SW product has been outclassed by the fans in every way.
