    Defender, you're wrong on your two points up there in the second post of the quote tree.

    It stated that the people inside would be digested for a 1000 years, so it's pretty clear that Boba was not immediately killed (especially due to the armor he was wearing).

    The jetpack/grenade thing. It was entirely plausible for him to escape using the variety of gear he had. The captives that they were tossing down there were always unarmed and defenseless. It's a valid explanation, which they used in the EU, that he was just chained by the beast at the bottom of the long tunnel that is his mouth. He used grenades to free him, and his jetpack to explosively propel himself upward using a bit of that 'suspension of belief' magic.

    I actually specifically acknowledged that earlier. I said "no way would a human live that long in the first place," but even if they did have lifespans that long, they'd still suffocate in the thing's belly way faster.

    Munkus, dearest, that's not entirely the point. The point is that the movie made it clear that he was supposed to die there, just like the emperor was supposed to die on the death star, and making up that he didn't is cheesy and lame.

    Defender, you are arguing over artistic integrity and unity. Everyone else is arguing over the expansion of an escapist setting and its events and characters. If they do not enjoy Star Wars primarily for the former, they will enjoy it (and discuss it) for the latter.

    You and I both enjoy it for the former, and agree that it's retarded to bring back Boba Fett. But that only makes you right within your particular niche of enjoyment of the series.

    Hey the adaptation of Kurosawa and the blending of it with old-style swashbucklin' family-friendly action films in the original movie was pretty good, I thought. And ESB was just plain great. And RotJ, though it was a little action-heavy and had some flaws (notably the fuckin teddy bears), brought it to a good, solid close.

    He was down there less than a week.
    And again, the movie wasn't explicit about his death. I'm not sure if Lucas came out one day and said it and if that's what you're referencing, but the movie was not explicit.

    If nothing else, it's explicit that he survived falling into the pit. Since that was the entire point. You'd suffer for a very long time as you were digested.

    Star Wars was a fun, concise tale. It hardly was the pinacle of writing.

    However having everyone come back does dilute the story. As does making bigger and badder death stars (I heard one could destroy the sun). I am very much of the opinion that if someone tells a story it should be left alone unless someone can right a really good follow up to it. Not just ret-con everyone back into existence and just make bigger and badder versions of previous things.

    OK. Let's make this simple, since you're pretending not to recognize the clear intention of the filmmaker to express that the character died. George Lucas said in an interview that Fett died there.

    But that's interpreting the film on a purely literal, "this happens then this happens" basis (bassist). To truly understand and appreciate any work of art, we have to acknowledge events that are strongly implied rather than outright stated.

    That and the "Major character gets into a situation where everyone is positive he dies then much later is seen again after having apparently made his way out through smallest possible sliver of conceivable circumstances" plot idea sucks.

    In short, the film says exactly what the creator demands. The EU finding that single loophole is like a little kid exploiting the semantics of his parents' orders.

    "You can't play with Kyle or Jimmy."
    Later
    "I said you can't play with Kyle or Jimmy!"
    "I know, mom, so since it was Kyle or Jimmy I chose not to play with Kyle. Also I totally bet Boba Fett is still alive and used bombs to blow up the inside of the monster then flew out of its mouth with his jetpack."

    Boba Fett is a major character?

    How many lines did he have? 3?

    That's why I never get the outrage. Boba Fett only does awesome shit in the EU. If you (general) hate the EU so much, why do you (general) give two shits about whether he dies?

    As for the "Oh, it diminishes death to bring people back all the time" thing, they honestly don't do it that often. A lot of characters die and stay dead.

    Yeah, I was actually just agreeing with you. But that's fine.

    With regard to what Stavren said, I think that what he meant about major characters coming back after they should be dead was separate from Boba Fett, who was clearly a smaller bit part than Wedge in the original movies.

    Please explain what "the author is dead" means. Because I haven't heard that used as a figure of speech before, and George Lucas is not dead.

    And the film clearly indicates Boba Fett being killed.

    You know what?

    This is what you're doing when you say that Fett might not have died.

    Within context of the extended universe, yes, Boba Fett is a major character. Killing off a character who was minor and just bringing him back because he's popular and making him a major one isn't much better than one who was major all along.
