The cat analogy is a good example!

I would like to see a pack of ewoks tear an Imperial stormtrooper to pieces like a pack of pirhanas. Use their numbers, size, teeth and claws to their advantage in a feral frenzy. Not so cuddly any more. More blood and gore!

Thanks! And I agree with you as well!

I Like the "traps" the ewoks set to destroy some of the walkers (same goes for the trap that captures our heroes). It shows they know how to use the resources that they have and makes them seem like they know what they are doing. But the silly/cutesy stuff makes them seem incompetent. Cut out the silliness, and add fangs to the open mouths and angry emotives to the eyes and presto! The Rebels are helped by competent, capable creatures instead of stupid teddy bears.

I really like the fangs and such on the ewoks. I have no problem with the ewoks looking cute while calm, most creatures do, but when in battle they should be made to look like ferocious creatures who can hold their own. Take my cat for example; when he's happy he's absolutely adorable. When he isn't? Different story...

The TIE Fighter Pilot Who Saved The Day in 'Star Wars'
Time

I thought of this when I was very young, but it's never bothered me. That article jumps to a few conclusions without any proof. Who says Han had a clear shot to take out Vader? I'd say he obviously didn't or he would have done so. Luckily, sneaking up on and shooting the fighter he DID have a clear shot at did the trick.

no, I didn't consider that I might be wrong. Because I can't be.
-Wow. You really are an ass.
BmB: I'm looking for one of two outcomes here; either you come to see the error of your ways, or you show me how your version makes sense and adds to the movie.
-Ady has already met your second desired outcome.
BmB: And honestly, who came to www.originaltrilogy.com if not to bitch about small changes ruining a film forever?
-Me.

And another thing, I'm not here to brown-nose Ady. I'm not a "yes man" as you put it. I have also suggested something to Ady that he didn't agree with. He didn't change my mind about it, but I didn't continue to push the matter because it's his edit- not mine, and I can make the changes I want on my own if I choose- as can you. There is no need to be as rude and childish as you have been.

No, seriously, I actually do agree. Yes, the Empire is out to destory the rebellion, but this isn't meant to be the dark bit of the film

 

It's no more "dark" than all the pilots and troops shown dying during the fight against the walkers prior to this scene. It's war, there are casualties all the time- even during victories.

The last Dark Horse book I bought was the post Chewie death one. Artoo and Threepio travel around to record the recollections of many who knew or encountered the Wookiee. (Amazingly, Chewie's father from the HS is in this.) It was so damn depressing!

Aside from our heroes being devastated, Han is going mental and calling for Chewie. Leia is clearly unhappy with the burdens of government, and isn't with Han. Just about everybody else seems miserable too. What the heck?

Remember when Star Wars was fun?

 

This sounds infinitely better than anything in the PT.

The love triangle was played up very, very much in a lot of the popular press in the late 70's - the 'who would Leia end up with?' question was there in a lot of the magazines I saw back then and Lucasfilm didn't seem to do a whole lot to discourage this kind of speculation.

 

I think most of the "love triangle" comes from the poster of Leia wrapped around Luke's leg. There is nothing in the actual film that points towards Leia having any romantic interest in Luke. Also LFL didn't discourage any ideas about it cause George had no idea what he would end up doing. Thank god he went with the obvious chemistry between Han and Leia.

I expected a princess. I got a military commander. Didn't ring 100% right with me.

She was much more of a military leader than a princess. Especially when we get to Empire. Her planet has been destroyed, so she isn't even a princess anymore. The "Princess" thing was used heavily in ANH because she was claiming she had no ties to the rebellion- which of course was a lie. She grew up with the founders of the rebellion, so she's been a part of this her entire life. Also, giving orders hardly takes military experience. In that scene she is merely passing on information/orders.

 

Also, I've seen several posts about Luke and Leia's kiss in ESB and how it should be cut, or cut the revelation that she's his sister in ROTJ to avoid some kind of incestuous overtones. If anybody really thinks there was some kinda "love triangle" between Luke Leia and Han, then I doubt they've ever had much luck with the ladies. The moment Luke meets Leia it is clear that she has no romantic interest in him yet the moment she meets Han, the sparks fly- lot's of sarcasm and bickering (which is usually flirting) but it also leads to some off hand compliments ("you're braver than i thought."). I mean, sure, Luke was attracted to her and all, but there was never a moment where it seemed that they would end up together.

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.
