Dune radical edit ideas
Time

I think a truly radical edit would be to combine ideas from both Jodorowsky’s unmade Dune with the David Lynch film …a couple of ideas that I put together a while back…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wf9hIx1Maio and also …https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lXkjj_6WQg I would definitely use some of the ideas in this thread and combine them with concept art from both projects for my dream edit . I love the Lynch film , but would drastically tone down the over the top villainy of the Baron Harkonen and his nephews , and it always bugged me that Dr. Yeuh’s being revealed as the traitor was telegraphed from a mile away .

Episode IX : <strong>The Rise Of Skywalker</strong> - film &amp; fan art, + covers etc
Time

^ now I see a Spaceball ! Might work better for me if they had made the colors of the moon blend in a bit more with Luke and Kylo .It also seems like Luke is emerging from the bottom of the helmet . Is that Luke’s hair dangling , or Kylo’s ? I am tempted to do a fan edit of this poster now . I really like it but for those elements.

I dunno , something looks off about that poster to me . I like the painterly look and the colors , but Luke has no cranium ! Would have been better to move Kylo’s helmet to the other side and bring more of the red into the blue and blue into the red , like a yin and yang symbolism .Looking at it again , it kind of looks like that is what they were going for but it just looks weird to me.

What's currently your favorite SW collectable item and why?
Time

my Power Of The Force 1997 AT-AT walker . My ex wife won it for me in a bidding war on Ebay for our first wedding anniversary . It was my most wanted toy as a kid …the original Kenner AT-AT that is . I have wanted one since 1980 …this one is close to that with more bells and wistles , but I believe made from the same mold . She got it for 80 bucks in 2004 . Has very sentimental value to me and I will never willingly part with it .

<em>The Mandalorian</em> - Season One - * <strong>SPOILER THREAD</strong> *
Time

I just watched episode 4 . A few thoughts…the Seven Samurai trope has been used in Star Wars spinoff material a few times , most recently in The Clone Wars animated series . No surprise as Filoni had a hand in that . Also , the very first original Marvel comics tale after the first film was a seven samurai/magnifecent seven homage . I was also very much reminded of the Marauders from battle for Endor at the start of the episode . I enjoyed this episode .

^ I saw the Imax AOTC at Navy Pier in Chicago in November of 2002 and loved it . I would also love to see a fan recreation of that cut . Here is a resource that may help editors that wish to attempt it , archived on TFN …

I would want a Resistance trilogy that is a character study about John Connor. With no time travel elements until the end of the last film that sets up T1&2. The first film would be the fall of civilization and the start of the war. See how John prepared for that and began rallying survivors. The first film would predominately have HKs and endoskeleton terminators. The second film would introduce the infiltration terminators starting with the rubber skinned earliest models. This would be expensive but I think it would be great to have a de-aged Arnold as a member of the Resistance that disappears for a while and returns as a T-800. The last film would be the last great seige of Skynet as John learns they’ve cracked time travel and are preparing to assassinate him in the past.

There’s a lot you can do with the future war setting that they squandered with Salvation.

Great ideas all around. I think a Brad Fiedel-inspired synth score and cold industrial colour grading are also essential. The generic score and warm colours of Salvation certainly did that film no favours.

^ THIS all the way !!!

Best Viewing Order for Fans and First Timers: &quot;THE FLASHBACK&quot; Order
Time

nah, for me it is just an alternative and fun way to watch . As you say , some of us have seen the films countless times . Why not mix it up a little ? And when I do a marathon , I do just that . Next time around , I might throw in the Tatakovsky Clone Wars cartoons as a flashback . One thing I did find years ago , was that by reading all of the original Marvel Star Wars comics that took place before Empire , when I watched Empire , the scene with Han saying goodbye to Luke just before the battle of Hoth had a lot more meaning for me as I spent more time getting to know the characters and the emotional beat of that scene resonated stronger with me than it ever had before.

I just watch this as my flashback after watching TESB …Vader’s Memories , a fanedit by Baker Man …This is a black and white, silent reedit of all three Star Wars prequels, with an electronic soundtrack and an extremely pared down story , the black and white gives it a real feeling of being a flashback and tells the essential parts of the story in a more dark and serious tone .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1AcBBpjkDg plus, it is only about an hour long and tells all you need to know so you don’t have to spend so much time getting to the resolution in ROTJ

as soon as they killed off John Connor in the first five minutes of Dark Fate , I was done. I am all for female representation , but this was blatant pandering .This is the movie people should be bitching about, not the new Star Wars films. We already had a strong female character in Sarah Connor …all they did was kill John Connor and replace him with a female and tell the same story . Legion is just Skynet by another name . Speaking for myself , and I am guessing for many fans of the original 2 movies as well , I STILL want to see a movie about the future war as depicted in those 2 films . Why the hell have they not done this yet ? And no , Salvation does not count …that was just another Transformers movie in terminator skin . They could do a fantastic movie by making a prequel about the future war and would not even need the original cast to do it .A missed opportunity IMHO .

<em>The Mandalorian</em> - Season One - * <strong>SPOILER THREAD</strong> *
Time

I love this show ! I had an ear to ear grin watching the first 2 episodes . Just finished episode 2 and the first thing that came to mind was the old Marvel Star Wars comic…issue 32 had an adventure with Jawas very similar to this and some of the hatches on the sandcrawler and the tactics used by the Jawas to repel boarders were very similar as well . I am thinking Filoni and Favreau must have read these issues. Issue 81 of the series also had a sandcrawler chase and featured Boba Fett being found by the Jawas after being regurgitated by the Sarlacc , only to be put back in by issues end .This series feels to me like those classic comics come to life , as did many episodes of the clone wars . I remember an interview series with Filoni from a while back where they had all of the classic marvel star wars comics on a display behind him , so I am thinking he is a fan of them . Also , I did not think that I would like the Yadpole at first , but man , I love the little guy ! This show is badass ! I have spoken .
