    I was medium on bothering with VIII, but Dad went "Should we see this over Christmas?", I said, "idk, maybe, whatever" and then he said he'd never seen any of the others. At this point we sorted out explaining the chronology of the trilogies while I tried to convince him that at least seeing VII beforehand would be a good idea, but he seems not to be bothered. So I guess we're taking a Star Wars newbie directly into VIII ... ?

    You monsters.

    So, Episode V

    Spoiler:

    Definitely better than IV, but not as consistent. I really didn't enjoy the whole section with Yoda, not much use in a training section when the it consists of handstands and simplistic morals to make your very vague superpowers better, and that's without mentioning how much more interesting Han and Leia are, our protagonist Luke seems really lackluster in comparison to everyone else. Yoda was the only good thing about this, and even then he's not charismatic enough to carry that section. Also, it seems more and more likely that Obi-Wan is actually dead, in which case... What a terrible death scene it was in the first movie. Damn.

    Vader was much more menacing this time, and I'm pretty sure something changed in the script... I don't know, he just seems to act very differently towards Luke and the rebels in general. I wonder if the decision to make him Luke's father was made late in development?

    And on that note, I never would've imagined this reveal would happen in this movie, I guess it made sense to make Luke's fight against the empire even more personal, but it's such an iconic scene that I couldn't imagine it being anything else other than the final climax.


    I almost watched Episode VI today as well but this hasn't been a good day for me and I don't want this to affect my experience.

    Aye, Vader being Luke's father was changed for Ep V.

    In the first draft that Brackett would write from this, Luke's father appears as a ghost to instruct Luke. Lucas was disappointed with the script, but Brackett died of cancer before he could discuss it with her. With no writer available, Lucas had to write the next draft himself. In this draft, he made use of a new plot twist: Vader claiming to be Luke's father.

    That makes a lot of sense, thanks for the information.

    Where do you suggest that I buy a good version of Makai Tensho (Samurai Reincarnation)? There is also Samurai Resurrection, but I would imagine that the older version is better, and it might be redundant to watch both back-to-back.

    Finally got around to watching Wonder Woman tonight. It was really good. Diana was adorable, inspiring and badass, basically everything you could want in a heroine.
