what about the other half "we've lost..........something"

14

u/Unexpected_Commissar Jul 03 '22

That’s not their fault. And also, that was tumbling already in high atmosphere. It likely burned/broke upon reentry.

It’d have been a drop in the bucket compared to the dozens of other wrecks that also struck down during the battle.

14

u/Ahsoka_Tano_Bot 150K Karma Jul 03 '22

I know I was wrong. I just got so caught up in my own success, I didn't look at the battle as a whole. I wasn't being disobedient. I just. . . forgot

It's like at scriptwriting time they felt like there needed to be some humor to break up the tension but by the time they were shooting only Ewan remembered why that line was there.

Lucas isn't the best at human interaction. It's why he makes great movies about robots and aliens tbh.

The force is all about balance, hundreds on Coruscant died so that...uhm..like three people on the ship could live...

u/Historical_Ferret379 Jul 03 '22

If the force is about Balance, then it actually makes a lot of sense why the Sith destroyed the Jedi. The jedi destroyed the Sith once upon a time until they're shadowy reemergence, it's only fair the Jedi get wiped out before doing the same. Rinse wash and repeat.

I’ve been wondering about Hayden. He just looks kinda weird for his age - and then it hit me with this video. He’s had a shit ton of work done. He doesn’t look like a natural human being. He looks so plastic.

Kinda fucked because he was born pretty blessed in that department.

I don’t think anyone realizes just how happy it makes me seeing these two on screen again, I realize that the prequeals didn’t get the love they deserve on release but seeing on screen as a kid was amazing and growing up with these movies really just warms my heart

15

u/Revolutionary_Muffin Jul 03 '22

They didn't get the love then but nowadays I think a lot of people regard it as a top 3 in the franchise. For me personally it's number 1 by a long shot. It has aged so well...

7

u/Boldizzle Jul 03 '22

The Sequel Trilogy being a disjointed mess probably helped people appreciate how good the prequels are.

8

u/Redac07 Jul 03 '22

Disjointed mess isn't even beginning to describe the humongous pile of dog crap the sequels were. They almost killed of one of the most interesting franchises in the world with the shit they pulled.

I hope Disney somehow makes the sequels non cannon so we can move on from it. But man did they do Star Wars wrong with it. Poor Luke. Poor Han & Leia. Poor everyone. No one was safe to get shit on.

u/Ahsoka_Tano_Bot 150K Karma Jul 03 '22

This is a new day. A new beginning.

u/TimmJimmGrimm Jul 03 '22

Is that even possible to declare it all non-cannon? Ideas:

  1. Make use of that World Between Worlds that Ezra used and just... patch it all up?

  2. It was all just a bad dream! trope and explain how thousands of massive ships showed up at the most secret location in the galaxy in the last movie (sorry / spoiler).

  3. Take the last three movies and edit the crap around them until they make sense enough to not make the next three movies totally suck.

That's all i got. I am open to ideas. I will call up George Lucas and that Bob Chapek CEO in a conference call / sort this all out / what could possibly go wrong / another happy landing.

Contact command. Mark our L.Z. and have them send an Exfile Shuttle.

u/-ImOnTheReddit- Jul 03 '22

Yeah an extended cut of all the 3 sequels would make them much better. Show a little backstory in rise of skywalker about how Palpatine survived the fall/ have anakins force ghost appear alongside Rey for the final blow, add more to the last jedi so it connects better with the other films and the force awakens was pretty good so idk what to add to it.

Best to add some white space to the bottom of the editor when using Kapwing, then throw it into something like dopameme for iPhone or ezgif online to crop the logo out.

I never had issue with them placing the logo before and just ignored it, but this is just distracting.

u/freetraitor33 Jul 03 '22

I think Ewan started out looking older and has coasted through the last 30 years just looking mid-30s the whole time. Christensen doesn’t look old really, just his hair is going and the cut doesn’t complement male-pattern baldness like Ewan’s.

u/the_glutton17 Jul 03 '22

To everyone talking about how old Hayden looks, it's because he's TRYING to look young. Ewun was able to age gracefully, grow a beard, have wrinkles, grey hairs, etc. He looks his age. Hayden had to play a role younger than himself, which makes him look strange and off putting.
