    I'm not a fan of Jar Jar, at all. But having those gut on this for a bit, I have decided that his election to the Galactivlc Senate should be seen as the problem here. What the hell was Naboo thinking?

    Binks was the precursor to Brexit and Trump. We should have seen all of this coming! George tried to want us!

    I think he was just the representative for the Gungan minority, likely kicked upstairs by the Gungans themselves (since they knew he was a disaster but had that war hero heat from the Battle of Naboo), who became acting Senator when Padme was in hiding.

    The only interesting thing you could do with Jar Jar imo is to redeem him. If you're not going to do that I wonder why anyone would bother bringing him up at all. It's not cathartic, it's just beating a dead horse and, as already acknowledged, super mean-spirited for really no reason.

    Having him as a depressed, tortured clown who everyone openly hates kinda sucks. I want to see him trying to help the resistance movement, fighting for gungan civil rights or ending up in jail as a martyr to repent for his role in the rise of the Empire. Show him old with his color fading and his speech slowed and deepened with age so that he's lost most of those annoying verbal traits. That I could see actually being worth the time to read.

    I will note that from the article, not everyone hates him. He does entertain the children. So it is on some level a meta-commentary on the Star Wars fan-base.

    I am 99% certain that is my favourite dumb fact about Star Wars.

    A 14 year old queen because the previous ruler died? Sure.
    A 14 year old queen that's elected as a figure head? Ok, sure.
    A 14 year old queen who is the literal queen and ruler of the planet? My mind boggles.
    The Naboo often elected young women, believing they possessed a form of pure, childlike wisdom that the adults lacked.
    Oh, right, they're nutjobs. That makes sense. Maybe they elected a Donald Trump one time and they collectively decided that a child could a better job.

    the way i was reading that excerpt (before i hit the last sentence), i thought it was a clown playing him, like he was some kind of widely hated and mocked public figure

    i think that would've worked better, if they were really so determined to back that bus up again

    See I don't think of the movie as "finally, I get a Han Solo origin story"

    I'm looking at it as I am getting an awesome Star Wars heist story/comedy that stars a bunch of actors I like directed by two of the most talented dudes currently in Hollywood

    The Han Solo part is secondary for me

    Planning on seeing rogue one this weekend. I can do regular viewing or 3D. It wouldn't be any special 3D. So should I do 3D or nah?

    I wouldn't think there was too much that 3D would add to

    OK, so I went back to read comments people had from the first screenings, and I have to completely disagree with this.
    The shots of the Star Destroyers, any of them at all, were AMAZING in 3D. Specifically, the one coming towards the screen half-bathed in darkness was one of the coolest visuals I've seen in any Star Wars film. Also, the shot when the Star Destroyer comes out of hyperspace and crashes through a bunch of ships about to enter hyperspace was fucking awesome. Basically every single thing that had to do with space or a ship was enhanced by the 3D.
    On a personal note, when I was a little kid, I remember seeing a huge cloud low in the sky that was kind of shaped like a Star Destroyer. And I remember thinking "man, I would love to see someone do a Star Wars movie where there's a shot of a Star Destroyer just kind of hanging low in the sky, showing how massive it is." And then there was Rogue One. That one shot alone made me practically bounce in my chair.

    Rogue One was amazing. I cannot wait for the Blu to hit.

    Shouldn't everything be essentially 2d in space because of the large distances? Your eyes wouldn't be far apart enough to get different perspectives unless you were a giant. Which would make space seem tiny.

    There's a great app called Starwalk that's kind of a cool basic astronomy tool. Shows where the stars are per your location, marks out constellations, planet locations, stuff like that. One of the niftiest things about it is that you can zoom in on a constellation and then rotate it in 3D, and realize that these stars that we've been drawing little lines between to help steer us around are all kinds of far away from each other on several different planes.

    It would also mean that the library of Congress would actually get a fucking copy of the stupid thing.

    And I doubt that.

    I could believe a "digitally restored" original version a-la the despecialized edits but I'm not expecting we'll ever see the original theatrical cuts.
