#63395 Saving Star Wars

Posted by LucyTheAlien on 06 March 2018 - 04:40 PM

So.... save it from what, exactly?
You refer to the treatment of Mark Hamill being something abominable, but I'm not sure what exactly you mean. Only thing I can think of is when he said that he disagreed with the direction Luke's story was taken - which we know is actually a plot point George Lucas came up with, not Johnson or Kennedy - and he later went back on that anyways

Uh no, Mark Hamill isn't happy with TLJ, even now.


I'll take this honest, passionate response over a Twitter post he was likely asked to make due to PR.



I REALLY don't see how Disney's ruined Star Wars. Okay, de-canon-izing almost 40 YEARS of content was quite questionable, but when I watch the new Star Wars movies in the cinema, I don't see a corporate monster milking every penny out of a franchise. I see people who genuinely care about a movie series they grew up with and try to maturely bring proper closure to the characters we grew up with. Rian Johnson gets far too much hate just because he did something no one expected.


He wrote an awful mess of a film that not only devalued the characters that J.J Abrams introduced, (Not just referring to the Supreme Leader.) but also disrespected some of the major contributors to  the franchise as a whole, Ben Burtt is not happy, John Williams is not happy, Daisy Ridley is not happy and Mark Hamill is not happy.














There's just a few examples from the level-headed YT members whom will not tolerate KK & RJ's treatment of the Saga. 


& If you don't find those convincing, watch Mauler's three part deconstruction of why TLJ is so vehemently hated if you're truly passionate about SW.

(I did the same for IHE's inane video on why TLJ is a good film, which it most certainly isn't apart from-from a technical standpoint.)

I have never hated any management of a franchise more than this personally, not Ridley Scott with Prometheus, not GL with TPM.

I don't mean to be disrespectful, but save it from what, exactly?

Rian Johnson and Kathleen Kennedy.

Had a similar problem once, turned out to be the GOTO Droid texture I was using, so check that.

#63345 [TSL] Griff drinks the Galaxy

You've definitely captured Griff!

That Schutta.

It would be hilarious if you could kill him but he'd turn up again, elsewhere.

Omg stop, it's driving me nuts that some people believe this is real.

Outcast is my personal favorite, can't wait for redemption.

Never something I thought about, but a good change. 


Now in terms of family resemblance the only issue we have is Griff. 

#63050 Original Star Wars 1977

Posted by LucyTheAlien on 21 February 2018 - 05:45 PM

Well, I've seen his versions but he's added new effects and sounds, and in some cases new music. Which I really, really don't like.

My proposal would be to keep the original performances and performers as intact as possible while including the miscellaneous sound and visual effects upgrades George Lucas approved, which don't change the pace of the film, or add blatant new CGI creatures or change the designs of creatures already present.

#63048 Original Star Wars 1977

Posted by LucyTheAlien on 21 February 2018 - 03:52 PM

So after watching Harmy's despecialized editions, I have to say.

Basically I was considering something, I think partially some of the changes GL made were somewhat positive;

Essentially I think it would be perfect if we could get them on Blu-ray with all the changes made up to Disney's buyout.

Apart from these;


Original take lines should be present, not replacements in rereleases.
Obi-Wan's Krayt Dragon scream should be the 2004 version.
CGI rocks.
The additional CGI Dewbacks.
The background ones in "Look Sir Droids" should stay, all others should go.
The Ronto and extended Mos Eisley with the speeder passing through the street.
"Han shot first." Scene.
Jabba & Boba Fett in SW scene.
The blaster impacts on the Imperial Officers' chests should not be censored.


Luke's line;
You're lucky you don't taste very good.
Should be restored.
Boba Fett should be Jason Wingreen.
Lando should only say "Attention" once.


"Jedi Rocks" Goodbye you awful CG monstrosities.
The Original Sarlacc Pit rather than the new one, the CGI beak looks bad.
Han should say;
"It's alright, trust me." Instead of
"I can see a lot better."
Original Sebastian Shaw head.
When the mask is removed.
Victory Celebration should stay but no Gungan "We'sa free!"
No Hayden Christenson.
No "No!" From Vader.

I'd rather have this happy medium than either the original films or the special editions but we'll probably never get that, officially.

Malachor badly needs it though. In my opinion.

So this is bloody brilliant;

#62960 Thought Experiment: Other stories in the Old Republic universe (not SWTOR)

Posted by LucyTheAlien on 15 February 2018 - 11:40 PM

I like the idea that you could find the Ebon Hawk, completely destroyed at the end of the second act of the game, it would be full of ghosts and whispers, Revan's mask and that's all you'd ever get of what happened to Revan and the Exile when they went to fight the "Sith Empire in their own way" if they did.

Otherwise, for a full story that took into account the potential events of K1 & K2 as well as providing a fulfilling conclusion to a trilogy? Tough job, but wouldn't be difficult to make it better than SWTOR.

Give me some time and I'm certain I could come up with a better fanfic.

#62710 Game of Thrones ShowRunners to produce Star Wars Trilogy

Posted by LucyTheAlien on 06 February 2018 - 11:00 PM

Well, maybe this is history repeating.

Circa 2003, mainline films are awful.
KOTOR is good.

Circa 2023, Rian Johnson films are awful.
KOTOR is good.

I'm sure the Rian Johnson films, if they're written by him will be more worthless than the prequels though, at least the prequels had the creators stamp.


Posted by LucyTheAlien on 27 January 2018 - 02:28 AM

Christ, the more I think about it the more I absolutely despise this film.

You thought the prequels were bad?
Oh boy does Rian Johnson have news for you. No Star Wars film has left me so utterly empty at the potential it threw away. Closest reaction is probably Prometheus and at least that was interesting.

What a waste of set-up from TFA.
