OK this is the last I'll do of this topic (you are all probably fed up with this) & as Angel has hinted at, perhaps Adywan has already addressed this scene (dunno??!!)

I didn't know if this would look good in motion, then I watched the clip you made and I really like it! And it fits in well with the devices used in the film- it's like a small version of the view screen Vader uses on his Stardestroyer. Not that the original hologram doesn't also fit in with Star Wars tech, but I would prefer this.

I actually almost like that different people pronounce names differently: Tarkin says "Lee-ah" where Luke says "Lay-ah", Obi-Wan says "Tattoo-in" where Luke says "Tah-tooine", Lando says "Hehn" where Leia says "Hahn" and Han says "Hun". Similarly to people having different accents, it makes the thing more believable. If everyone speaks the same way it can sound too artificial.

Absolutely, but the problem is that Luke has never pronounced Tatooine that way up to that point and never pronounces it that way again. Like you said, he says "Tah-tooine" not "Tah-dooine" Maybe it's just my ears, but it sounds way different. different enough that I thought he must be reffering to a similarly named planet like Dantooine.

...However if you were referring to the way Lando says Han, then I've got no quarrel with you good sir or mam. That's fine like wine.

Hey Ady... have you considered changing the way Luke says "Tatooine" at the end of the movie?  Maybe it's just me, but as a kid, I never understood what he said until I finally turned the subtitles on one time.  It makes it sound like he says "Tah-roo-ine" because his a is long and his second "t" is so harsh.  I have no clue if this would even be possible.

This has irked me as well. To me it sounds like he says "Taadooine". Being a native, you'd think he could pronounce the name correctly, and indeed does at other times, which brings me to my fix suggestion- just cut and paste audio from another line.

But don't forget, this is just a movie.

Oh, absolutely. As I've said before, this has always kinda bugged me, but it's never stopped this from being my favorite film, and it won't now either. I'm not as hard up to have this removed as it may seem, and certainly not into changing this thing around in ways others have suggested. It was just  a quick suggestion that spawned a monster.

Don't mind me... I'll get me coat.

This is why I suggested cutting the explosion scene completely. It just doesn't add up. And all of the explanations take waay to much thought for such a quick scene. Having the walker fall over and then cutting to the rebel troops charging the battlefield is, in my opinion, the best option.

This would make no sense whatsoever. This is the rebels first little victory. They begin to think they can actually win this battle and then WHAM... they get their asses kicked. Take out the explosion and the scene falls flat.

But knocking the walker over is just as big a vicotry as blowing it up.  It can no longer continue to advance and it can no longer fire it's weapons. That alone would be reason enough for the rebels to think they could pull off a win. I know you aren't gonna remove it and that's perfectly fine by me,   but to say it would "make no sense whatsoever" is... well, wrong.

So I know that this has probably been mentioned before, but why is Ady taking away the red AT-AT windows?  I feel like they were meant to be red since they were depicted as such in the movie posters and paintings.

And, unlike the blue escape-pod door which was actually supposed to be blue in ANH, the red windows aren't very annoying.  They're actually kinda creepy.

I'm assuming that it's being taken away because it doesn't match the interior shots. When we see out from the inside, it's a clear window.

(Ady beat me to it)

That kind of doesn't make sense either.

How do they know that the neck is a weak point?

Until they shot at the things they have no idea that "that armour's too strong for blasters".

If they did know the neck was a weak point don't you think Luke would say, "Aim for the neck!"?

I'm sure the Empire wouldn't make it easy, but spinning a metal web, at speed around the legs of a mechanical dinosaur in motion belching laser bolts can't be easy either.

Almost every zombie film has someone telling the cast to aim for the head.

Every Doctor Who fan knows to aim for the eye stalk.

Every team of Ghostbusters has an "aim for the flat-top" guy.

Maybe the ground troops have been issued with a copy of Incredible Cross-Sections but the audience hasn't (the pilots certainly have not).

This is why I suggested cutting the explosion scene completely. It just doesn't add up. And all of the explanations take waay to much thought for such a quick scene. Having the walker fall over and then cutting to the rebel troops charging the battlefield is, in my opinion, the best option.

Dark Jedi's Star Wars Trilogy Cover (GOUT sourced)
Time

I love this.

The scene and props depicted in the painting aren't even in the film, yet that seems to imply that this is the original cut in the same way the early promotional posters, with all of their inconsistencies with the film, did.

It looks simple, clean and professional. It says: "This film doesn't need a loud cover full of craziness and floating photoshopped faces -it's a classic."

¤ RETURN OF THE JEDI ¤ Score Restoration - another OPTIMUM SET ?...

Here's a question:

Anybody know where I could find the music Jabba's band are playing on the sail barge? Not the song sang in his palace, but the tune they are playing as the barge crosses the dessert. I've never seen this on a soundtrack- though I haven't listened to every release- and I'd love to have it.

Also, how about the version of Lapti Nek (or however it's spelled) that was actually used in the movie? The version I have has a different vocalist.

Sorry you replied while while I was edited my post.

Not quite, if you look closely and frame by frame they fire at the neck.

Well why didn't they say "Go for the neck! That works!" and start takin' the things down?

In any case, I think it would work better if they just stuck to the original plan of tripping them up and leave it at that. I mean, that stops them. It does exactly what they wanted it to do. And who are the rebel troops going after if they blow up the walkers which would destroy the imperial troops inside? "They destroyed one! C'mon guys, lets go get trampled to death or blown to pieces! CHARGE!!!"

Either way, it never has and never will ruin my favorite film of all time!

 

 

 

...and I can always cut it out myself why Ady releases it! ; )

For the same reason the Empire had to penetrate the rebel planetary shield with the at-ats in the first place instead of just bombing the base from orbit : a shield generator is meant to stop laser blasts and the like from reaching their target but they can't stop solid moving things, including humans, to go through them.

But, again, AtAt's have no shields. The wookipedia (god that sounds dumb) page says that the only vulnerable spot is the "neck" which is unprotected. Yet they fire at the "body" of the thing.

From what I understand, the fall knocked out the AT-AT's shield generator, allowing it to be destroyed by the Snowspeeders.  Also, when someone refers to "armor", it doesn't always mean just the physical structure.  It can also refer to any protective shielding, since it is in effect part of the vehicle's defenses.

Make sense?

Nice try, but the AtAt's have no shield generators. And If they did, how was Luke able to climb up and cut through the bottom hatch?

This is my first post on this site, though I've been following this thread for quite awhile.

Sorry if this has been brought up before, I've looked through the thread and didn't find this mentioned. But, at over 700 pages, I may have missed it.

The one thing that has always bothered me in Empire is that after the first AtAt gets tripped up, they fly back, blast it and it explodes. "That armors too strong for blasters!"... unless the thing has fallen over? I think this would work better if they simply trip it, it falls over and then we cut to the troops "C'mon!" and they all run out to start fighting. I know we all love explosions, and that's a good one, but it seems totally illogical to me.

The pic posted recently of the fallen AtAt with the troops jumping out and Vader walking through the snow- something like that would be amazing.

Anyways, there's my annoying suggestion and first post.
