Was thinking about The Empire Strikes Back (because it's what one does) and how it balled up the obvious blueprint for "let's make a #StarWars sequel" and threw it in the trash. Every zig you'd expect as a rabid fan (or as a studio exec) is an onscreen zag instead.
One of the craziest ones is also one of the most subtle: Han, Luke and Leia, AKA the Big Three, the newly minted cultural icons, are in ONE scene together. They interact for a grand total of 90 seconds.
The big battle -- the SFX Gotterdammerung -- starts before the half-hour mark. Like the script got flipped in a mirror.

Oh, I guess it’s been 4 years. I can’t count right.

Como hoy es #SanPublicito, voy a comentar algunas de las campañas mas logradas, divertidas y llamativas de los últimos. Abro hilo:
Comienzo por una serie de campañas super divertidas y elaboradas, todo un éxito de visibilidad para la marca: @OldSpice tomaba el control de tu pantalla y te embelesaba con increíbles efectos "reales" y la voz aterciopelada de su "Old Spice Man" 😎
@OldSpice Luego le dieron una vuelta de tuerca (literalmente 🤣!) y @OldSpice siguió ofreciendo campañas super divertidas y bizarras 🤣🤣🤣 gracias al exagerado y deliciosamente excesivo @terrycrews 🎇🔥!! #SanPublicito

Did you like the Dornean Gunship, Braha'tok-class? You will love the Arrestor Cruiser ! A story certainly better known, but it will have taken 43 years to appear (extremely briefly) on the big screen. Let's go for a new #StarWars story
Arrestor Imperial Cruiser - Solo : A Star Wars Story ( @RealRonHoward 2018)
Concept art (1975) by Colin Cantwell.
@RealRonHoward Present on the screen for a second or two in Solo: A Star Wars story, this design would go back almost to a few details, to 1975, when the Star Destroyer had not yet won the design that we know.

Now, the story of an (nearly) unknown #starwars ship, which was entitled to a kind of rebirth after 33 years. 🥳
Dornean gunship, Braha'tok-class - Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (Richard Marquand 1983)
Do you remember? No ? Unless you're a big fan of the George Lucas saga, it's impossible. This ship appears only briefly, on a handful of shots of the Battle of Endor. You know, this kind of shots 😄

A las 6:45 he dejado a mi mujer en el aeropuerto. Antes de irse me ha dicho que, estos días en que estará fuera, tengo que encargarme de unas cosas que ha llamado «niños». Estoy confuso y asustado.
Al llegar a casa, 7:20 a.m., me encuentro con lo que parece ser mi hija. Es como mi mujer, pero más pequeña. Se está preparando el desayuno ella sola, parece autónoma. Eso me tranquiliza.
Antes de irse al Instituto, me da instrucciones (definitivamente es como mi mujer pero más pequeña) sobre desayuno y ropa de lo que debe ser mi hijo pequeño. Aclara que él sabe qué debe ponerse. Eso me tranquiliza.

Good article about #RescueOnFractalus, one of the first two games we created at #LucasfilmGames, and efforts for a fan-created modern version. In Finnish, but open in Chrome and ask for a translation. Mostly accurate telling of the game's history.
Some really minor inaccuracies: Loren Carpenter was never a member of Lucasfilm Games. Instead, Lucasfilm Games was originally a group within the Lucasfilm Computer Division where Loren worked, He was on loan to us part time during the early development.
It was George Lucas' idea that sometimes the pilot you're rescuing turns out to be an alien. We figured out how to make that happen, and got Atari to agree to keep it a complete secret in their marketing/box/manual text.

Secondo me 'Affari di famiglia', in visione adesso su @CieloTV, canale 26 del DTT, 126 di SKY (HD), è da anni il miglior programma d'intrattenimento del panorama televisivo. Se non erro (mi si corregga se sbaglio) da domani iniziano i nuovi episodi.

Last night my wife made a Han themed cocktail for #SoloAStarWarsStory. It's got gin, coffee liqueur, a cherry, and some other stuff. Like Han, it's bold and risky but it works. Anyway, here's a thread on the movie, why I love it, and why I think people should watch!
I love Solo because its veins are pulsing with pulpy, old movie serial pacing and inspirations. It's a fast, fun ride that zips through the genres of sci-fi, fantasy, western, romance, Lovecraftian horror, gangster, buddy comedy, heist, and more. It's a tour of #StarWars' roots.
BUT even more than that I love its big picture themes. Everyone in the movie is longing for their freedom. Han, Chewie, Qi'ra, Beckett, droids, Wookiees, children, entire planets. Their freedom is denied by the oppression of the Empire and its complicity with vicious criminals.

#CrazyRichAsians is headed for a monster opening, and it’s essential to look at why. A full 38% of viewers so far have been Asian—we’re COMING OUT for this film as we never have in cinematic history.

But another 24% of viewers are black or Hispanic: *viewers are 62% nonwhite*.
The book #CrazyRichAsians was based on was a NYT bestseller. When the target for the book is described by folks in publishing, they say “white female, summer read, book club, 35-54.” That audience isn’t who’s filling theaters—yet.

They’re the ones who might take this to $100M.
If you haven’t seen it yet, a small spoiler. After the first 15 minutes of #CrazyRichAsians, you will not see another nonwhite person on screen. Not even in background shots. And the only white people with speaking roles get played like dominoes. In the first five minutes.

Posso te contar que as #galáxias nascem, evoluem e morrem, como nós?
E se, além disso, eu te contar que esse é meu estudo com @thiagosgbr, no @ValongoUFRJ?
Se prepara porque lá vem thread sobre "o que acontece na vida das galáxias"
#mulheresnaciência
"Camila, você disse que as galáxias morrem?"
Antes de mais nada, não fique triste, as #galáxias não morrem exatamente "assim como nós". O que realmente acontece é que as galáxias deixam de formar estrelas. Digamos que elas se aposentam.
Ok, agora que você tá mais tranquilo, vamos começar.
Quando as galáxias estão formando estrelas, elas são azuis. Em contrapartida, quando elas se aposentam, elas se tornam vermelhas. O porquê das cores vai ter que ficar pra outro dia ok? O que eu estudo está entre os dois!

My love for #StarWars began at a very young age before I was even able to really comprehend just how vast and complex the Star Wars Universe really was.

I can't tell you the # of lightsaber battles that my brothers and I had using sticks or whatever else we could find.

THREAD: @RobertIger & @Disney should concerned w/their investment in @Lucasfilm & how it may hurt their business going forward. It's hard to categorize the level of failure @rianjohnson achieved w/The Last Jedi. In his defense tho, @Disney & @Lucasfilm allowed him
to do this by making the unconscionable decision to make a trilogy w/o a treatment set in stone. Sure the story can organically change as you progress, much like a TV series, you add or remove elements but you fit them into the overall story & it only stays if it helps THE story.
If you look at TLJ & TFA side by side it’s hard to imagine that they fit in the same universe, let alone the same storyline. While TFA wasn’t perfect, it gave TLJ open plot lines that fans were eager to follow. Instead,

Gotta get something off my chest: In the first #StarWars film, Obi-Wan Kenobi dressed to blend in on Tatooine so that nobody would suspect he was a Jedi. 1/
Basing all Jedi fashion on that one everyday-Tatooine costume is absolutely fucking ridiculous.
On top of just being pointless, it means that Obi-Wan spent his 20 years hiding out on Tatooine dressed like a fucking Jedi.

Gillar ni den här tweeten, så får ni en tweet om hur det är att vara #blind i #Sverige. Upp till 150 st eller 2 dygn, vilket som kommer först.

Det är naturligtvis enbart baserat på mina egna erfarenheter.
1) I Sverige finns inga lagat som reglerar blinda personers tillgång till utbildning i Punktskrift. Många blinda personer är därför också analfabeter, kan inte rösta, får ingen samhällsinformation, etc.
2) För er nördar - punktskrift är en slags 6-bits binär kod.

I have FINALLY ranked all of #StarWars based on screen time for women. This is now canon. Don't @ me.

43% Last Jedi
37% Force Awakens
35% Rogue One
23% Return of the Jedi
22% Empire Strikes Back
20% Phantom Menace
18% Attack of the Clones
17% Revenge of the Sith
15% A New Hope
Obviously the list won't include #SoloAStarWarsStory until it's available to buy. I actually think it might score reasonably well, although it doesn't pass the Bechdel test (the other Disney films do BUT BARELY)
And OF COURSE I'm really sorry to score your fav A New Hope last, I really am, and I thought the prequels were awful too BUT @rianjohnson wins here for giving women almost equal screen time and TLJ passing the Bechdel test more than once. Them's the rules so...

Boba Fett has always been one of my favorite #StarWars characters, so I put together a thread on the character's genesis and why fans have gravitated to him over the years.
The 1979 Kenner #BobaFett action figure, more than any film appearance, is responsible for the bounty hunter's popularity; American media scholar Henry Jenkins suggests children's play helped the character "take on a life of its own."
The character's origins begin in March 1978, when Joe Johnston designs a SuperTrooper / SuperCommando in white armor that would become the iconic bounty hunter.

#38 #TheFloridaProject 3,5/5 30 menit berlalu gue hanya melihat penggambaran kenakalan anak-anak, namun kebelakang makin intens menyentuh sisi lain kehidupan single parent, Ekonomi dan krama keluarga Amerika. Tapi best supporting role untuk Willem Dafoe kok agak berlebihan yah?
