Anybody else hoping Ady will re-think giving Boba a “definitive death”?
Unlike the changes to SW & ESB, this is one that will force a change in the viewers EU. In the original, it’s easy to imagine Bobba surviving (as many do), but by giving him his fathers head chop ( I believe the plan is to use footage from AOTC), it’s over.
Also, if you’re a saga fan, both Boba Jong and Boba Fett will receive the exact same death.
I’m not even a big Boba Fett fan, but this idea just sits wrong with me.
I think I’ve said this before, but I’m hoping this is the reverse of “No AT-ST’s in ESB:R”.

Not sure where you got that this is the way he is going to die ( and i certainly wouldn’t reuse footage from AOTC even if i did decide to kill him off that way).

I guessed it a long time ago and you seemed to give it a positive nod at the time.
Knowing it won’t be that is relief enough. He dies in the original cut, so I gots no problem seeing him go.
Though I think I’d still prefer your original idea of cutting Boba out of the film altogether, I’m excited to see what happens!

They pretty clearly spell out that Jabba has Han and that they will be meeting at a distant point in the future at the rendezvous but to have planned it for a full year away seems a bit unplausable. All I can think and read into it myself is that it took a lot longer to get everything in place that they planned

For Lando to create a character, gain trust in Jabba’s crew and become “one of the boys” had to take same time. We’re talking about the galaxy’s greatest gansta’ leading the galaxy’s greatest gang. You don’t just walk into that place, buy the room a drink and get accepted.
Luke has clearly advanced in skills. There’s certainly some time tied up there.
The entire Rebellion has evaded the Empire, regrouped and found a temporary place to hide while also fining out about the new Death Star, examining the layout and finding a way to destroy it.
A year seems easily plausible to me.

I get the feeling you think I’m of the opinion that ROTJ comes nearly straight after TESB

Sorry if I’ve responded to you before. I tend to forget what I’ve said n’ who I said it to around here anymore.

There is also an issue in the line of thinking of actually being indoctrinated as one of the gang as then at some point Lando would have had to carry out acts that proves his worth to his employer and colleagues which likely then makes him not really suitable anymore as an honorable and trust worthy member of the rebellion (he’d probably have blood on his hands).

R1 shows that dirty deeds aren’t something the rebellion is above, nor should they be.

The fact he is hiding his identity behind his face guard to me confirms that it is an actual infiltration that runs the risk of being found out at any time through recognition

Hm. Good point. *fist bump

Well, I made the plunge and bought Battlefront 2 for the pc. Figured it’ll be a good way to break in my new laptop. It’s downloading as we speak. Will let you know what I think after I’ve had some time to try it out.

It’s only $8.24 on the Playstation Store. Money well spent. The graphics, sound, and controls are great, not to mention the outstanding story which is can canon by the way.

Sounds good!

Still wish there were a lot more Star Wars video game being released. Looks like a big opportunity being missed.

Sounds right!

Huh, I always thought RotJ happened immediately (or within a few days) after ESB…

Lando has had time to infiltrate Jabba’s joint, gain trust and become “one of the guys”.
Luke has gone from disgraced student to damn-near master.
These things take some time.
I’ve always figured on a couple years between OT films.
Between SW & ESB the Rebellion has had time to pack up and move to a frozen planet where they set up a massive, militarized, underground base. That had to have taken a year or more.
I’d say 2/3 years between each film is fitting.

You say 2/3 years of Luke doing nothing but leaving his friend hanging on a wall is fitting?

It’s fitting that they took the time needed for the plan to work instead of barging in and failing.
Works for me.

Also, in actual events, I’m on board for Ady calling out the cretins that ripped him off.

I just can’t imagine Han wearing that silly shirt.

It’s literally just a black version of the shirt he wears in ESB.

Maybe that’s what it is in the movie, but that’s not what the art on the card looks like.

Oh I see (had not looked at the card). Yeah not great, plus his head seems too small.

Ah, yeah that’s the other thing I couldn’t put my finger on! It’s a very strange image.
The Lando one seems to work though.

Over-dubs?

Super late, but…
Over-dubs are additional recordings that play over other recordings.
For example, most guitarists will record their guitar track, then a second identical one that plays over the original to create a bigger sound. Vocals, drums, ect. are done the same way. It’s called over-dubbing and the additional tracks are called over-dubs.
That Queen song has a ton of different vocal tracks going on is what it’s saying.

My buddy Godzilla has been
a symbol of the horrors of nuclear war
a campy Earth saving hero
a symbol for environmental protection
a mindless, lost and scared creature
a reminder of the atrocities of war
a threat that must be dealt with
a protector worthy of praise
a spotlight on a stodgy government
and much more!
He’s the best!

Even when he’s a giant fish-eating iguana?

Zilla doesn’t count.

Oh sure, now he doesn’t. Convenient retcon much?

😉

GODZILLA: Final Wars would like to say some stuff about it.

G’98 is mentioned in the awesome GMK as well.

Eh, sure. It’s fun to have one to totally hate on. It gave Toho a kick in the ass to make more, and they made a few great ones in the Millennium series.
It’s all water under the bridge now.

Do you think Toho screwed up by canceling the sequel to Shin Godzilla?

Not at all. I LOVE Shin, but I think it’s stronger as a standalone.
