>no thread about the Preacher season finale
I guess I'm the only one on /tv/ still watching this show?
Underrated bit from Star Wars (the original): Not once does Luke use his lightsaber in a fight. It makes complete sense from a narrative perspective since he'd only just started to learn the ways of the Force, but in hindsight it's an amazing show of restraint to not have Luke jump into the fray against Vader, lightsaber in hand. Especially when you consider that the movie's success was very much in doubt and a sequel was not guaranteed.
The movie instead shows Luke's growth in the Force in a different context, something the audience already knows he is skilled at: Piloting. Luke makes mention on two separate occasions that he's an experienced pilot and shows his skill to the audience firsthand during the TIE Fighter attack sequence. Using the Force to augment a skill he already has makes much more sense than suddenly making Luke a lightsaber savant after three hours of training on the Falcon.
On a semi-related note, I love how Luke's progression in his Jedi training is signified by his reliance on a blaster. In Star Wars/ANH, Luke relies entirely on a blaster for combat, leaving the lightsaber on his hip at all times. In ESB, Luke uses his blaster to dispatch Stormtroopers but switches to the lightsaber for single combat with Vader. And finally in ROTJ, he feels completely self-assured with the lightsaber in all situations, showing his maturation as a Jedi.
i love how Luke's outfit color shows where he is at in his moral progression as a character.
starts out white, cause he's young and naive and just learning about the force
then grey, because he learns that the force has a dark side and there is real temptation revolving around its use
and black for after he is revealed to be vader's son and his future is unclear; whether he will follow vader's steps or not.
and then it is revealed to have a white interior to the suit to show that after he decides to be a jedi, that he was really good underneath all along and it came out when he makes that declaration
>black for after he is revealed to be vader's son and his future is unclear; whether he will follow vader's steps or not.
YES. This is a ssuper underrated aspect of ROTJ, I feel. Before ROTJ, the only examples we have for those mature in the Force are Obi-Wan, Yoda and Vader. So when Luke rolls into Jabba's palace cloaked in black and chokes Jabba's guards (something only Vader has been shown to do), it should have raised some red flags. Even his green lightsaber blade (I know it was because of the blue sky, shut it) implies a certain neutrality, somewhere between the Jedi and the Sith.
In retrospect I think the audience was supposed to legitimately wonder if Luke was going to take the Emperor's offer during the climax, but for whatever reason it just didn't land the way it should have.
ROTJ is a supremely underrated film anyway.
and mark hamill's performance in all 3 movies too
i mean, try to think of a scene involving luke where you don't immediately understand what he's thinking/feeling.
and the character changes so the performance has to as well, while still being true to the core of the character.
ROTJ is my favorite of the star wars saga, but i do acknowledge that ESB is the better film.
Wish we could turn back time to the good old days.
Why do people obsess over this movie so much?
If there is an American equivalent of the Kingsman why weren't they in the first movie????
What's his master plan?
/tv/ recommendations that you fell for
Why won't she be mine?
I wish I was more attractive like Dagless
Still one can only dream
I'm a one track lover
Down a two way lane
Drivin' fast down the highway
Must o' been insane
Cos the temperature's too high
Traveling way too fast
And I knew our lovin'
Was too hot to last
She's smooth, like ice
Cold to the touch and it isn't very nice
When your left (cold to the touch) alone
You let them treat you badly, leaves you hanging on the phone
Take off (hot enough)
Shove your lovin' to the wheel
Put the pedal to the floor
'Cos your heading for the hills
Got to get away, can't take it no more
Man you don't need this
Leave it, leave it, leave it at the door
(we should be making love)
the door, the door, the door
Sanch, open the door!
Sorry Reed, bad dream
Am I the only patriot that saw this in theaters today?
Why hasn't there been a major Veggietales movie?
They also made another one that nobody watch.
This is an age of reboot /tv/ it's just a matter of time before (((they))) reboot the godfather trilogy, so lets reboot it ourselves
How would you feel about your wife or girlfriend (if you have/had one) doing a love scene in a TV show or movie?
What are your thoughts?
NO CAN DO
this is the greatest movie I've ever seen, nothing can top it.
I preferred Fail Safe (1964) even if they had to use some pretty shit stock footage in minor places.
