i'm digging it. it's cool to get other peoples "philosophies" on certain things vs. hearing it from george lucas himself.

kevin smith says something like: i hafta love jabba the hut, one cause i'm shaped like him & two cause if it weren't for jabba we'd never see princess lea in a bikini.

Star Wars is the great american "epic"...i argue that media formats have changed culture enough to encompass more than texts and poetry into the classic epic formula...in medias res, clearly defined heroes, yadda yadda.

Word, II would be my pick too, the last 45 minutes almost conjured up the old Star Wars magic.

III really pissed me off though, it was supposed to be the best one of the entire series but was just more of the same bad dialog and poor acting.

The beginning of III is the best of new star wars...that battle is just enormous on the big screen.  Of the old school, Empire is the best, cause Luke turns into the little bitch he is...and Vader rocks his ass.

Anyone ever think there is a reason episodes IV, V, and VI were released first?  Think we would be discussing this stuff if it went the other way around?  I certainly don't.  Don't get me wrong, I am a big fan of this series.  But I just don't think it would have taken like it has if the first couple episodes were released first.

Lucas deserves a Sarlacc treatment. It's like he colorized his own damn movie or something. The King of the Assholes.

I thought the prequels had so much potential given the events leading up to Ep. IV.  They would have been much better had Lucas not directed.  Maybe then the actors could have gotten something done.  He's a terrible director for actors and is much better served in the producing role (IMO).

that's why I sort of compare it to PH phish.  I saw Eps I, II, III quite a few times each in the theaters (I couldn't help it) yet part of me wishes they had never been made... :|

Star Wars is considered an epic, and one quality of an epic is it starts en media res (in the middle of the action).  That's why Lucas had to start there.  It hooks us and then he can always go back and tell the story that leads up to it. 
The Odyssey is the same way.  It starts in the middle of the action and then goes back and tells a bunch of pre-story which isn't quite as exciting as when he goes home and destroys the suitors- which he is near to getting to that point in the beginning of the book, but has to retell his whole story.

If Lucas started with Episode I, it may have never made it through the whole series, at least not with the fanbase it has today.

I actually spent about 30 minutes discussing the similarities of The Odyssey and Star Wars in terms of epic poetry to my 8th graders.

Whoa.  Among other things, in this charming anecdote, David Lynch tells us he told George Lucas to direct Jedi himself, and also that Lucas "doesn't really love directing."  Check it >

I stumbled on this randomly last week.  It's a fan-made film called Deleted Magic that has TONS of deleted scenes, original scenes without the voice overs, special effects, behind the scenes, etc.  A definite "must see" for any Star Wars fan.  Apparently it's been around for years.  I'd never heard of it before.

Star Wars Rebels, a one-hour animated pilot already in production at Lucasfilm, is scheduled to premiere in Fall 2014 on the Disney Channel before the new brand leaps to Disney XD for the ongoing series, according to Lucasfilm sources.

The series will mine material from the 19 years that follow Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and precede the Episode IV: A New Hope. In other words, using the life of the Skywalker twins as a measure, the series will be active in the story years that come after their separation as newborns and before their (unwitting) reunion on the prison level of the Death Star.

While it may be one of the worst performances ever, I wouldn't put much weight into a movie that was directed by George Lucas.  After all you've got Oscar winner Natalie Portman and nominees Liam Neeson and Sam Jackson looking like a bunch of idiots up there.

That being said, he may be a horrible actor after all.  I haven't seen him in anything else.  I can just envision Lucas saying, "Let's try it again, but try to be more annoying.  We want the audience to dislike you."

Part of the problem (maybe the main problem) with the CGI in the special editions is that it doesn't match the look of the films. There's a very analog look to them, because they were made in an analog age: actual props, optical compositing, matte paintings, puppets... So just sticking a CGI sequence in there, even if it looks fine on its own, is discontinuous. I don't mind so much some of the cleanup (e.g. removing the smear under Luke's landspeeder, fixing opacity and outline issues with compositing) that otherwise preserves the original visual intent.

I think the intention is to give you the most clean version of the movie as theater audiences saw them back in the day. Minus all of george lucas's 'better making' and 'if i had had the money's.

There's a long discussion somewhere (non-paug) about what exactly he did - check that out for details from the horse's mouth. 

I think the jist of it is that he cleaned up (or left cleaned up) some blurring and evidence of effects from the original (matte lines, etc.)

New info for the Stand-Alone movie as well as Ep VIII

http://www.starwars.com/news/rogue-one-is-the-first-star-wars-stand-alone-film-rian-johnson-to-write-and-direct-star-wars-episode-viii?linkId=12857863


This morning at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, across the street from Lucasfilm, Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger hosted a shareholder meeting where he announced news regarding the first Star Wars stand-alone movie as well as Star Wars: Episode VIII.

Rogue One is the title for the first film in a unique series of big-screen adventures that explores the characters and events beyond the core Star Wars saga. Rogue One will be directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters, Godzilla) and written by Oscar nominee Chris Weitz (Cinderella, About a Boy, Antz). The first actress cast is Felicity Jones, who garnered an Academy Award nomination and critical acclaim for her performance in The Theory of Everything. The idea for the story of Rogue One came from John Knoll, an Academy Award-winning visual effects supervisor and chief creative officer at Industrial Light & Magic. He will executive produce along with Simon Emanuel (The Dark Knight Rises, Fast & Furious 6) and Jason McGatlin (Tintin, War of the Worlds). Kathleen Kennedy and Tony To (Band of Brothers, The Pacific) are on board to produce and John Swartz (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) will co-produce. The film starts shooting this summer in London and is due for release on December 16, 2016.

In addition, Iger confirmed that Rian Johnson will write and direct Star Wars: Episode VIII. The film, which continues the saga after the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is set for release on May 26, 2017 — forty years and a day after the release of Star Wars: A New Hope in 1977. Johnson is widely considered one of cinema’s most gifted young filmmakers, having directed the modern sci-fi classic, Looper, as well as Brick and The Brothers Bloom. He was also behind the camera for three episodes of the critically-acclaimed TV series Breaking Bad, including “Ozymandias,” which series creator Vince Gilligan named as the best installment of the show. Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman, producer of Looper, Don Jon, Brick, and The Brothers Bloom, are on board to produce.

Empire is the least offensive of the special editions, of course. (Except for some of the more over-exuberant Cloud City CGI.) This is probably, and not coincidentally, because it was the best of the three in the first place.

Truth.   I even like the Cloud City stuff.
Entirely more tolerable than any of the cgi in hew hope.

sexy trailer.
funny the Abrahms (sp?) screen glare made an appearance, lol.
i got chills when Chewy showed up.
no doubt this movie is going to be visually/stylistically perfect.
question is how 'safe' are they playing it with the story.
seems like the whole plan was to put out a class A hollywood abrams flick with no chance of a major flaws like the last 3, but i'm still really hope there is something more than par story wise.
anyone know what Lucas' involvement was in the script or who actually is writing these?
only thing i heard was that the original ep7-9 stories were scraped entirely and this was all a new conception.

REgardless. sexy as hell.
i'm planning on watching ep1-3 to lower my expectations as much as possible before going, lol.

The script is not written by "a Disney guy"

The writers are JJ Abrams, Michael Arndt (winner of the Academy award, best screenplay go "Little Miss Sunshine"), and Lawrence (I wrote Empire Strikes Back, Return Of The Jedi, and Raiders Of The Lost Ark, motherfuckers) Kasdan.

The writers are JJ Abrams, Michael Arndt (winner of the Academy award, best screenplay go "Little Miss Sunshine"), and Lawrence (I wrote Empire Strikes Back, Return Of The Jedi, and Raiders Of The Lost Ark, motherfuckers) Kasdan.


Ah I read the article wrong, the "story treatment" or first drafts of the screenplay, for the next 3 episodes is handled by the Disney chairman, Bob Iger.

Pretty sure Lucas is just overlooking some of the production if anything....script was written by a Disney guy when they handed it over to them.

Story treatment is plot layout. That is not the same as a screenplay. It's more an outline.
This is an important distinction and not just because of union rules. The screenplay gives us the dialog, the intricacies of the plot itself...

Story is only a bit more elaborate than:

A young farm boy meets an old wise man and travels with him to fight the evil galactic empire and learn the ways of a mysterious power called "the force".

That is then handed to a screenwriter who then makes something of it.

I lived my entire 18 year old life trying to avoid any and all Phantom Menace spoilers -- like I never even watched a teaser trailer and look how that turned out. JJ has been masterful in keeping the plot of this film under wraps, nothing in that international trailer will give you any further clue how this plot is going to go, if you've watched the first 3 go ahead and watch it, it's amazing

so I tried to get tickets to the 8pm show Thursday but they were sold out so I settled for the 9pm show. I told Dana it's going to be a late night for the boys and they'll be dragging ass Friday morning but this is a once in a lifetime experience #fatheroftheyear

last movie i tried going to almost put me in the hospital though. the way movie chairs are desigened to fold up  basically act as a death trap device for my herniated discs...

for those not playing the new game but star wars fans there are a couple of interesting tie ins they are doing that couple the game with the whole cannon.
for one, the first dlc for the game is going to be the "Battle for Jabbu", which i believe is supposed to lead up to the beginning of the movie where the aftermath of the battle is a setting.
also, there is this book that was just released setting up a story  for the game in relation to the movies.

I had the same question.  The answer, obviously is both.  I am not a huge fan of 3D though, but I think I am gonna do 3D IMAX first and 2D second.  That's what my gut is telling me.  Hicks is going to 2D on Sunday and 3D Imax with me on Tuesday.  I want to see the huge screen first, even though I almost always prefer 2D.  Every movie, some say have to see it this way and the other half say, have to see it the other way.  Hard to say which is better.  Went to Mad Max 3D and it was dope.

btw, i found it real interesting that cable wasnt spamming the old movies this last month.
usually theyve been on throughout the holididays ever year anyway and i especially expected it this year.
i thought maybe it was Disney holding them back like theyve done with their other old films, EG snow white or whatever, where theyd only show them once a year on tv, but after a quick google all i could find is that SPIKE held the rights to air them from 2008-2014 despite Disney taking over.
couldnt find anything about if Spike still has th contract for cable...

christmas money is just too sweet to pass up.

Plus everyone has time off work and the kids aren't in school.

which translates to...even more money.

Showed it to my (nearly) 8y/o son last night, and he's psyched.

Some kid brought a cassette recorder when he went to see Star Wars for the second time back in 1977 to record the audio.  It's been sync'd with the video here, but you get a good feel for the audience's reaction.  It's pretty fun.

Star Wars: Episode VIII has a title

Confirming suspicions that Luke Skywalker wasn’t wearing those gray robes and staring off into the misty horizon for nothing, Lucasfilm has confirmed that the full title of the next chapter in Star Wars’ Skywalker family saga will be Star Wars: Episode VIII—The Last Jedi. The news was announced on Twitter just a few minutes ago, along with the nifty teaser poster seen below. Expect more updates on this story than even the most diehard fan can handle between now and the film’s release date of December 15, 2017.

My hope was that with Han being the old-school star of VII, it'd be Luke in VIII and Leia in IX. In my little fantasy world, Leia was going to finally realize her inborn Force potential and team up with Rey to kick ass in the finale. Alas.  :cry:

Fun Facts about The Force Awakens

Quote
1) Finn’s Stormtrooper ID number is FN-2187, which is the same number as the cell block where Leia is imprisoned in "A New Hope."

2) Many familiar banners can be seen hanging outside Maz Kanata’s outpost. These include several of the podracers' flags from "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace" and the mythosaur skull from Boba Fett’s uniform.

3) The Millennium Falcon chess game that Finn accidentally triggers pays homage to an earlier film by picking up right where the chess game between R2D2 and Chewie left off in "A New Hope." The piece that gets body slammed in the original game gets revenge by hitting its assailant with a mace this time around.

4) The Abednedo X-wing pilot is named 'Ello Asty' after the 1998 Beastie Boys' album, 'Hello Nasty.' On the package of his officially licensed toy, the Aurebesh text on his helmet reads “born to ill,” which is another Beastie Boys reference as well as a reference to the Stanley Kubrick film "Full Metal Jacket." (1987)

5) The archway in Rey’s village on Jakku was actually originally designed by Ralph McQuarrie to be part of Jabba’s Palace on Tatooine. Another impact he had on the film.

Those banners lend credence to a pretty cool fan theory that Maz Kanata is actually the last (and tallest) Jawa. In The Phantom Menace two Jawas are watching the pod races and the taller one is one of them. Then in a New Hope when the Jawas have R2 there are 7 of them (including one that is taller), but after the storm troopers kill them there are only 6 bodies. Plus Maz's goggles make her eyes glow yellow, just like a Jawa. There's more to the theory, but I cant recall any more details right now.

According to the USA Today, the new Millennium Falcon boasts 7,541 pieces. It measures 33 inches long, 22 inches wide and 8 inches tall. The cockpit alone holds four minifigures, “there’s a living room with posh seating and a Dejarik holographic game, plus a gunner’s seat and interchangeable radar dishes (since the Falcon got an updated one for the current trilogy).” The set also comes with minifigures that let you customize the Falcon to your preferred era. There’s 1980s Han, Princess Leia, Chewbacca and C-3PO as well as a buildable Mynock (so basically Empire Strikes Back), but if you want to go sequel trilogy, there’s Old Han, Rey, Finn, and BB-8 plus some Porgs.

There’s 1980s Han, Princess Leia, Chewbacca and C-3PO as well as a buildable Mynock (so basically Empire Strikes Back), but if you want to go sequel trilogy, there’s Old Han, Rey, Finn, and BB-8 plus some Porgs.

I've never been a fan of Legos or models but that's bad ass.
I love these kind of sets. To be completely honest I built the "advanced" sets well into high school... This is making me want to start up again!
I had the original millennium falcon advanced set, that thing took me ages to build and it was less than 1/3 the size of this thing!

A few old friends and I went yesterday for the noon showing. Enjoyed it immensely. We went out for margaritas after and discussed the movie for hours. We also managed to absolutely wrecked. I’m sure everyone around us enjoyed all the spoilers we were dropping. I still have lots of questions,as everyone surely will. Go see it soon

yeah i was super careful too, but was getting increasingly difficult so finally downloaded a pretty decent copy online and watched one night, so now at least i can browse without fear.  i don't recommend doing what i did though - the theater experience is always the way to go, beyond just the visual and audio improvements!!

Title: Re: Star Wars

So this got me to thinking.

Top five worst character movie ideas?

5. Baby Greedo
4. Dexster Jettster
3. The microphone-mouthed medical robot from ESB
2. "Where are you taking that ... thing?" guy
1. Nute Gunray


Perhaps you were expecting "Jar Jar Binks: The Motion Picture" would be a lock for the top spot.
But c'mon. You'd watch it.
Title: Re: Star Wars
Post by: Hicks on February 03, 2018, 03:22:44 AM
Well just to be clear, not all of those choices were really what I would pick for the best movie. I chose Droopy McCool because I wanted to highlight his ridiculous name. And I threw Maz Kanata in there because I wanted all three trilogies to be represented.

Anyway, five worst characters in the Star Wars universe?

Ok, let's go. 

5. Adm. Ozzel

Just a complete loser, how did this schmuck ever get to be an admiral in the first place?

4. Count Dooku

Only good thing about this character is that he was played by the great Christopher Lee, and he's dead.

3. Ki Adi Mundi

Worst ponytail ever.

2. Power Droid

Ok this one is really obscure, so I'll link it up. But basically it's just a little person with a storage bin over their head.

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Power_droid

Best part?  They actually made a figure of it:

(https://sep.yimg.com/ca/I/yhst-51568362379717_2270_541335795)


1. That lady in the library that says "If an item does not appear in our records, it does not exist!" 

I mean seriously, fuck that lady.
