Welp. You know the deal. Pretty much anything Star Wars. The good, bad, and ugly. Mostly bad and ugly, though.

Like I said elsewhere, I think JJ was an okay choice to reboot the franchise: his writing lacks substance but it's not as insultingly bad as George's, and he knows how to get a decent performance out of his actors. He knows how to make something that's shiny but forgettable, and sadly "shiny but forgettable" is leaps and bounds ahead of the prequels. I'd say "shiny but forgettable" is exactly what the franchise needed to get back on its feet. The problem is, that while that may be a good strategy to revive the franchise, that's not a good way to conclude it. :/ If it were just TFA, I might be more hopeful, but "shiny but forgettable" also describes Star Trek XI (would a subtitle have been too much to ask for???) and Into Darkness to a T.

Every "leak" about the Han Solo movie makes this seem more accurate.

On a whim I decided to watch A New Hope this evening for the first time in 5+ years...

  • Luke and Leia look like little children.
  • Han doesn't look too much older.
  • Real Tarkin makes CG Tarkin look even worse.
  • Rogue One created more plot holes than it filled.
  • I never (consciously) noticed that Red 2 was Wedge Antilles.
  • Ewan McGregor was well-cast--while the time discrepancy makes Obi-Wan seem to have aged very poorly, the two actors nevertheless bear a remarkable resemblance.
  • I would really, really, really like to see the new trilogy go back to ANH/ESB's analog cathode ray tube futurism. It's really charming, and it's something that Rogue One actually did very well.

    To be fair, I'd figure one wouldn't age well living on a desert planet, in constant danger of being discovered by the local Imperial garrison, and trying to keep himself AND Luke's presence concealed from Vader and Palpatine. Stress is not kind.

    Very true, but that's some serious hard living in a universe where, on the one hand, you can die of a broken heart, and on the other can survive induced labor being several months premature and come out looking about six months old.

    Well, in the novel, Luke is supposed to be 20 and Leia probably late teens (they weren't twins yet).
    Real Tarkin makes CG Tarkin look even worse.
    Yeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. Especially in his introduction, opposite Krennic...
    Rogue One created more plot holes than it filled.
    Given it's supposed to play the role of FixFic, I'm curious.

    Yeah, it's making me feel old. As is the fact that the last time I watched DS9 I couldn't help noticing how attractive Major Kira was--whereas previously I regarded her as attractive but a little old for me.
    opposite Krennic...
    I did miss Krennic.
    Given it's supposed to play the role of FixFic, I'm curious.
    In particular the scenes aboard the Tantive IV stand out. The ANH dialogue says that they "intercepted transmissions," and they really should have left it at that. Having the Tantive IV fleeing the scene of a battle between the Rebel Alliance and the Empire just makes Leia look like a really bad liar.

    VADER: Come now, your highness. You weren't on any mercy mission this time. I literally saw you just leave the scene of a battle.
    LEIA: I don't know what you're talking about. I am a member of the Imperial Senate on a diplomatic mission to Alderaan. I just happened to be passing through the Scarif system. By coincidence. Really.



    Honestly, while I enjoyed Rogue One, I can't say it added anything to my ANH viewing experience beyond a desire for more cathode ray tube futurism. I'm fully expecting the next spinoff film to be announced to be about the "many Bothans [who] died to bring us this information" on the Second Death Star.

    Surely if there was a novilisation of A New Hope, George Lucas could have at least strongly hinted to the writer the fact that Luke and Leia should be the same age... Even if he's not willing to trust the writer with prior knowledge of Luke and Leia actually being twins.

    I could move to a small town, and become a waitress...

    There wasn't any prior knowledge at the time. Luke and Leia being siblings wasn't a thing until RotJ was being made.

    As I understand it, the decision was literally made on set during filming.

    Also, Lucas was the author of the novelization (or at least one of them): I've read it and it's as bad as you'd expect.

    Honestly, I think ESB is the worst novel adaptation. It just reads like a screenplay converted to paragraph format.

    I could climb with such ease I went climbing towards the Sun by the ridges of the Great Mountain. It was so light around, so nicely warm, so beautiful, closer to the Sun - I wanted to go right next to it! But I overrated myself, I'm so high now that the light blinds me, heat hurts me and it's too late to go back!!!
