Now that Star Wars is in the hands of the Family Friendly American Mouse Company™, how long until we get Blu-Ray releases of all the versions of the original trilogy? I mean the original theatrical releases, Special Edition 1997 theatrical release, and the DVD release. I watched the DVD edit first, and for that (and some other) reason(s) I prefer that one over all the others. However, I realize many other people grew up with different edits, and therefore think we collectively deserve ALL versions in 1080p.

I think it is up to us to bug Disney until they give in. What do you think?

>how long until we get Blu-Ray releases of all the versions of the original trilogy?

That depends on Fox, which still owns the distribution rights to Episode IV. If Disney can work out a deal with Fox on the matter, you’ll see the original Original Trilogy on DVD, Blu-ray, and HD-VOD as soon as Disney can get it out. If Disney can’t get a deal done…well, I don’t know if you’ll ever see that release happen in your lifetime.
So... How about that new teaser trailer?
I was surprised by it, even when I'm not really hyped about this movie.

We been talking about it in the general and I thought it was great. Arguably, finding out BB-8 was a real physical droid that actually fucking worked was more mind-blowing. I'm super psyched right now.

There's been more information out about the first anthology film that's going to come out a year later. Rogue One will take the focus away from the Jedi and the big heroes and concentrate on a band of Rebel soldiers stealing the first Death Star plans. The only footage is foggy-as-fuck cameraphone video, so have the LEGO parody instead:

When I saw the movie my impression was it being the other way around, the host resonating with the force and midi's somehow tapping into this as a food source. Thus midi' presence would correlate with but not cause force sensitivity.

Qui Gonn outright says this:

"Without the midi-chlorians, life could not exist, and we would have no knowledge of the Force. They continually speak to us, telling us the will of the Force. When you learn to quiet your mind, you'll hear them speaking to you."

So, unless he was bullshitting lil' Anakin, without the Midi's there is no resonating, it's through them that living things connect to the force. Hell, the "speak to us" part seems to NOT be a figure of speech, as the fluff even goes to suggest that the Midichlorians are somewhat sentient.

It's more of a financial decision than anything. Believe it or not, you can fake reality with CGI most of the time. The move to 90% practical FX is to lure back as many prequel-burned fans of the original trilogy as possible. Get more butts in the seats.

It may be a financial decision, but it is an artistic decision as well: Actors who can interact with actual sets and objects can do a far better job of making the fantastical seem real. It also lends a sense of realism to the overall film as well, as CGI can still look conspicuous, still fall into the Uncanny Valley even with today's technology, and still be abused by filmmakers (and studios) who use it as a crutch instead of as a tool.

So, rewatching Empire... again. And I noticed something. After the Falcon flies into the asteroid, the scene transitions into something that was definitely cut from the film. Because you see a moon or a planet, that is nowhere to be seen in the next scene, where Luke arrives to Dagobah. I wonder what was the original scene meant to be there.

This criticism might have merit if we were talking about The English Patient or La Haine or something, but this is Star Wars here. The franchise has been a merchandising cash cow since its inception.

Given that, the Rogue One crew have been very upfront about their motivations for making this film: a group of people really wanted to tell a gritty war story in the Star Wars universe, and now that the Disney deal has pried Lucas' grubby mittens off of the franchise they finally have the scope to produce one. There was a pitch, it struck a chord, and now they've got a director and a team and an incredibly diverse ensemble cast dedicated to making The Dirty Dozen In Space. This isn't an exercise in "filling plot holes", this is intended to be a vignette tale about a ragtag band of diehard underdogs being forced to step into the vacuum left by the extermination of the Jedi. I, for one, am looking forward to it, it's a far cry from the shameless cash grabs I was expecting to emerge from the Disney deal.

I was thinking about the Mortis arc of the Clone Wars. Anakin is given a vision of what will happen, and joins the DS (Dark Side™) because "it would give him the powers to prevent it".

But why are the snippets of the future just a touch different from what happens in EP 3? Because, as Yoda said, "always in motion the future is". Future events have not happened yet, and can play out very differently from your visions. Nice touch, writers.

Now I could create my OWN cuts of the original trilogy, with the changes I liked, and minus the changes I didn't like. It would be a fucking dream come true.

Now the only thing left is getting the theatrical cut of The Phantom Menace. I have the LD rip, but I want that in 1080p, dammit.

The shocking moment fails to be shocking if you'd paid any attention to the actors really early on.

Pretty much my thoughts. It felt a bit too much like Age of Ultron in the whole "Wink, thats for the sequel, fans!" department. I hoped it would do new stuff and try to be a solid stand alone film, like the 1977 one was. Buuut it copied it in other ways.
Then again, its still a fine movie to this day so there's worse things to copy from.

I liked it a whole bunch. I have to rewatch Empire Strikes Back to see if Force Awakens beats it for my favorite Star Wars movie, it was just that solid. But that is just my opinion.

I'm a bit conflicted that there wasn't force jumping, as far as I noticed. And I felt Kylo Ren was sooooo fucking weak! He lose to a force using newb with no formal training in in The Force or lightsabers! And didn't even beat Finn, a non-force force sensitive and untrained with lightsabers, instantly! Kind of a let down after he HELD A LASER BLAST FLOATING IN AIR FOR LIKE 5 MINUTES! Everything else was more or less ace.

He's not "a poor man's Vader". He's...well, he's best described as "Anakin trying to be Vader". (In a sense, he's also an expy for Abrams in regards to Star Wars: trying hard to seem familiar, but still trying to be something a little different than before.)

>he's best described as "Anakin trying to be Vader".

My exact thoughts as well. I believe that he could prove interesting with time and training; he kind of feels like the trope of the evil minion that seems like a pretty bad dude early on, but messes up and continues trying, sometimes better sometimes worse - eventually joining others? No idea what that's called.

What I would like to see in the villain department is more General Hux and Captain Phasma; Hux was essentially Space Hitler and Phasma needed more things to do. Hope she lived... Also, as for Snoke, not sure what to think there.

Kylo is trying to be Vader and fulfill what he sees as his family legacy by being a "Sith Lord". OT Vader has been hardened by around two decades; of course that Vader is a badass. What we see in Kylo is a mirror of pre-Vader Anakin: immature, brash, and dealing with conflicted feelings in his heart. His character is arguably one of the few callbacks to the Prequel Trilogy, regardless of whether that was intentional, and a fitting inverse of what Vader was in the OT. This setup also leaves open future growth for Kylo in Episodes 8 and 9, including a possible turn to the Light Side - and I would love to see a canonical Sith-to-Jedi conversion without it being followed by near-immediate death.

Really, the character work laid down in TFA is some good shit in terms of setting the stage for the future of the franchise. And I hope to God that the careers of both Daisy Ridley and John Boyega blow up after this film - they fucking deserve it.

It's not that particular photo, just that it reminded me of the ban that Lucasfilm (and allegedly coming directly from the Lucas man himself) visited upon Prowse, declaring him persona non-grata on any official Star Wars event. Is that ban still in place?

Why do people always need to compare shit to other shit? Is it impossible to not do "it's better than" or "it's worse then"? Is this "power ranking" thing really that necessary? That, and the suggestion that it is not as good as the original trilogy suggests the possibility that it is nostalgia talking.

Our minds naturally work that way?

>Is it impossible to not do "it's better than" or "it's worse then"?

Film Crit Hulk kinda hit upon this idea in his “What Makes a Movie Good?” essay (http://birthmoviesdeath.com/2012/06/26/film-crit-hulk-smash-what-makes-a-movie-good):

Both a critic and a filmmaker can have deep technical knowledge and yet still completely fail. Hulk has said before that Fincher is a master aesthetician who has made one of Hulk's favorite movies ever (Zodiac), but he has also so tonally missed the mark on a few movies that Hulk worry he misapplies his technical acumen. To wit: a great critic can see every movie under the sun and still misapply the logic to miss whatever might have made a movie unique, interesting or compelling and ultimately be the thing that allows it to connect with audiences in a meaningful way. Heck, look at the most obvious example ever in Armond White. The man is actually rather intelligent and has seen just about every movie ever. But it's like his wires got crossed and every day is opposite day or something because he doesn't make a lick of sense when it comes to identifying things that will actually resonate with an audience.

Which means that both criticism and filmmaking are really the processes of well-articulated subjectivity.

Yes, they are opinions and created emotions, but they are informed opinions and created emotions that try to get at the heart of a movie-going experience. That's why Hulk hates doing traditional reviews and never wants to boil it down to some appraisal of worth. In that kind of world, the question shouldn't be "Is the movie good?" but more something along the lines "Does the movie work?" You may equate the two, but Hulk believes that basic change of language can really change the way we think and talk about movies.

>the suggestion that it is not as good as the original trilogy suggests the possibility that it is nostalgia talking

…or people might legitimately think the individual OT movies “worked” better than TFA. (Except maybe for Jedi.)

There were a ton of things I liked, more than things I didn't like. Overall I was very impressed and I was surprised by how good it was after the travesty that was both of Abrams' Star Trek movies. I love the new cast and the new droid, and I fucking love the new villain. He's everything that Starkiller should've been. There are a few things that annoyed me about the film, most of them being inconsistencies and pacing issues, but overall I give it a thumbs up.

I'm on the complete opposite end. Snoke, Hux, and Kylo did not impress me as antagonists. They all were half-baked and not intimidating with their screen presence. Also, why did Phasma even exist in this movie? The Tonfa Stormtroper did more than Phasma. Ultimately I liked Finn, Rey, and BB8's onscreen chemistry, but the complete retread of A New Hope's plot, while somehow managing to completely miss what made A New Hope's plot good (seriously, you blew up five planets we don't give a shit about, it was no Alderaan moment), really left me severely disappointed in this film's writing and I didn't go in with great expectations to begin with. I'd rank it as a poorer showing than JJ Abram's Star Trek movies. Hell, they had better antagonists than this turkey, and yes I AM including completely generic Romulan. Even the Prequels, for all their flaws, at least gave us Darth Maul, Dooku, Sidious, and Grevious.

Ultimately, all opinions.

My biggest problem with the movie is that they really blew their load with the Starkiller base. We were never shown what the New Republic is like, so when the First Order blows it up, it's really hard to give a shit. They should've built it up over a few movies.

Seriously though, this was a fun film. I do think J.J. Abrams' Star Trek revival was a more snazzier film, but The Force Awakens had a better foundation for the franchise to expand upon. Excited to see where the sequels will go, along with the spin-offs.

Best part about TFA was how everyone talked like real human beings, unlike the prequels.

Thoughts on the new characters:
Rey – Felt like a better Luke in a lot of ways. Not as whiny, more serious but likeable all the same. The accusations of Mary Sue are definitely overblown. I mean I guess it was a little weird that she was able to pick up how to use the Force so quickly, but part of it is probably for pacing reasons, part of it is her personality and circumstances make her a better learner than Luke, and besides it's implied early on that she was already trained in it from an early age anyway. If she's not Luke's own child, then she's at least a survivor of the second Jedi purge hidden on Jakku for her own protection.
Finn and BB8 – I actually didn't expect to like them as much as I did. They was great, and managed to be funny without being annoying. Also Finn's friendship with Poe was really sweet.
Poe – Wasn't in the movie all that much, but he was great whenever he was on and I hope he comes back Wedge style.
Kylo Ren – FUUUUCK YOUUU
Spoiled fucking brat, but unlike Anakin it's clear he's supposed to be obnoxious on purpose (cast a guy with such a nerdy looking horseface, that HAS to be intentional), and at least Adam Driver can act, so in that sense I guess the fact that he's so unlikeable is a sign that he's a good character if he can piss me off this much.

All the others were OK I guess. None of the new characters stood out as badly done to me. Underused, but there are more movies coming. Probably my biggest complaint about the film would be the awkward pacing and scene transitions toward the beginning of the movie, but those sorted themselves out. And the CG on Maz Kanata wasn't bad, but looked strange next to all the real people.
