Ooo... can we please have 5 pages of debate about whether or not the unaltered versions will sell? Further derailing this train-wreck of a hijacked thread?
That was meant to be funny and the reaction is also fitting that all droids have reactions like humans in the films. That's different from the DLC-13 reacting to someone landing on it and overriding its programming, which isn't meant to be funny.Originally Posted by Simbob4000
I'm talking about what the audience sees, which are two eyes which are a detail to a droid with facial features. The glow is common with droids and darkened places.That GNK droid doesn't have an obvious face, the DLC-13 ones do...and it's for a reason. It does not matter why the eyes appear large, they're large, and it's not like they didn't know what they would look like in the lava environment.
Having a reaction is not the same as being humorous.It's about humor, this is a movie, they chose to have the robot react, they could have just as easily not have shown it react and no one would have thought twice about it.
It's not what I think. It is what the movie is. The DLC-13 moves very fast and is quite small, compared to the repulsor droid that Obi-wan is on, which is slower and big enough to stand two people. Anakin uses it to get to Obi-wan. It has a reaction because it is a sentient droid.That's just stupid, you mean to tell me that the reason (you think) the make believe droid was chosen over some type of other thing is because it's faster? Really, is that a real thing you think? The reason that droid is there is so Lucas could do the little bit with the robot being surprised by someone standing on it, the reason it looks the way it does, with it's overly goofy design, is to sell the bit.
Or five pages about you complaining about piracy ruining lives?Originally Posted by Phil Clark
I wonder if we can have a female villain this time in the next trilogy. Zam Wessel from AOTC is pretty much the only one in all six movies, and she was poorly used. EU wise there's been a ton.
Reason it wasn't done before was Lucas wasn't interested in evil chicks.
We sort of got one in the Lucas-produced Ewok movie (Played by Sian Phillips who was the wicked Livia of I Claudius). Of course like Ventress she's been retconned as being a "Nightsister"
You know something kind of interesting about the end fight of Revenge of the Sith? It creates a thematic bridge with Return of the Jedi; they're both ripping off/playing around with, whatever you want to call it, with the ending of The Vikings with Kirk Douglas and Tony Curtis. The Anakin/Obi-Wan fight is a bigger version of The Vikings ending fight, and Anakin's "burial" is right out of the ending of The Vikings also. Not that it makes the fight good...but it is kind of interesting.
ABC's Paul Lee looking into live-action Star Wars series.
The project was commissioned by longtime Lucasfilm producer Rick McCallum, who enlisted writers such as Battlestar Galactica‘s Ron Moore and swore them to NDA secrecy on the plot details (more on the show’s storyline below). Fifty scripts were written. McCallum once called the scripts the most “provocative, bold and daring material that we’ve ever done.”
Although, I could kind of care less about the series at this point; I have huge doubts about something that was put together by Rick McCallum.
