If you could change one thing about every movie, what would it be?
Time

TPM-make Anakin 17 or 18 …AOTC -No Yoda with Lightsaber , I actively seek out fan edits that omit this …ROTS -no Yoda/Palpatine duel , I always thought these 2 characters had advanced beyond the need for sabers .ANH-put back in the deleted Biggs scenes . ESB-not a damn thing if it is the original cut , it is perfect to me .ROTJ- go with the original plan and have the Ewoks be Wookiees . TFA-a little more background on the political situation in the galaxy …what happened to Coruscant ? TLJ-put back in the deleted scene of Luke mourning Han .

There is another form of negativity I like to call “passive-aggressive trolling.” These are people who do not break forum rules, but still manage to constantly disrupt threads.

I think how most forums define trolling needs an update.

^ agreed , especially those who ignore the opening post, the spirit of the thread, or wish to knock your thread and further their own beliefs or agenda and just carry on anyway…

except you left out the part where I clearly stated " I understand that some people genuinely do not like the direction of the new films,or the decisions of those making them , and have some ligitimate criticisms,but this is not the place to heir those concerns , you probably SHOULD start your own topic to express your views and if you are of a mind to take a stand and stick up for the aforementioned people making the movies and the people that like them that ARE being harrassed, then this is the place for it ."

guess I will have to repeat my post from earlier in the thread for newcomers or those who forgot…my edit to the OP for further clarification …#standagainst https://www.deviantart.com/screamsinthevoid/art/Stand-Against-748884934?ga_submit_new=10%3A1528516751 " Being a toxic fan is when you’re insulting and berating and harassing the people making the movies or the people that like them." Folks , these are the exact people I speak to in making this topic , Kelly Marie Tran , Ahmed Best ,Jake Lloyd, Daisy Ridley, etc. . I understand that some people genuinely do not like the direction of the new films,or the decisions of those making them , and have some ligitimate criticisms,but this is not the place to air those concerns , you probably SHOULD start your own topic to express your views and if you are of a mind to take a stand and stick up for the aforementioned people making the movies and the people that like them that ARE being harrassed, then this is the place for it .and to be clear on the intentions of this thread , if you have something supportive to say , this is the place , if not , take it elsewhere or start your own topic . I think I have done my part to be as clear as I can .

^ I get what you are saying here , but some of it I highly disagree with . this part mostly …“But for all the useful information in that video, it neglects the basic fact that “fandom” itself is a grift, selling people the lie that obsessing over fictional things whose creation is completely out of your control is a positive, healthy way to live. Fandom is grass-roots marketing at its purest, the belief that opting to be walking commercials for someone else’s art can be spiritually rewarding. That you can build meaningful, healthy relationships out of that shared obsession, and that the world can be made a better, more manageable, more interesting place by simply mixing consumerism with love and letting the two impulses inform one another.” …seems to kind of undervalue this community right here . also, if you are not aware of them …look into the 501st Legion , they do a lot of charity work and visits to childrens hospitals , or the R2 builders and R2-KT …https://io9.gizmodo.com/the-heartwarming-story-behind-r2-kt-and-how-she-joined-1744986951 I would say there are many , many Star Wars fans out there turning their shared obsession into something that makes the world a better ,more interesting place mixing consumerism with love and letting the 2 impulses inform each other and I encourage my fellow OT members to post more examples here…

SilverWook's vintage Star Wars newspaper clippings (and other stuff) thread. (LARGE IMAGE INTENSIVE!)
Time

^ awesome ! reminds me of a similar scrapbook I made as a kid , wish I still had it , it had newspaper articles and all the toy ads I could find. I really like that Star Wars to Jedi advert with the line art of Vader , never seen that before ! And for a lark , I called the toll free NPR number on the Empire Radio advert , it is active as a home cell phone service company !

and this is that featurette…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQzltwQwJxg

Yes! OMG! I haven’t seen this in forever! So it’s basically an unreleased web doc. Kind of surprising they didn’t throw this on the bonus feature blu ray.

Thanks for the link!

^ you’re welcome , always cool to find something you have not seen in ages .

^ That same featurette also appears on the final vhs release of the OT from 2000 at the beginning of a new hope . I have that box set . It is just the 97 special editions without the special edition branding and photoshop versions of the Struzan posters on the tape covers …this set…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNo8FUiZKv8

Ranking the Star Wars films
Time

Mala, how much of the cgi version have you watched in order to make a fair comparison ? I actually like both series very much. Tartokovsky’s is fantastic and really feels like Star Wars , the cgi series also greatly expands upon the friendship between Obi-Wan and Anakin and has some great drama . It reminds me a lot of the original Marvel Star Wars comic series …there were some goofy one offs but as a whole , it was also epic. See the Landing at point Rain , The Mortis Trilogy and pretty much all of the lost missions season six and you may see what I am talking about . Although I will say , Grevious has never been more badass than in the 2d animated series and I wish he would have been more like that in the movies
