Pogledao i uživao u svakoj sekundi...uvek tu ima šta bi moglo i šta nije moralo, ali život je kratak da ga na to trošimo.

Duplo dobro predstavlja i činjenica da je nedugo nakon gledanja filma moj SWTOR sith inquisitor dostigao level 50...



A hejteri hvataju zalet, pa sam se pošteno nasmejao na sledeći meme, iako ne podržavam ovakav vid zajebavanja čestitih dark side pregalaca...

pogledao sam film i nista nisam citao od kritika gledao jutjuba, a i ovu temu trc trc koji post
pogotovo nisam fan sw-a a i sranje mi je film

zelim samo da objasnim dve stvari na koje su se neki zalili (i ovde i irl) koje su meni veoma jasne:

1. zasto crnac zna da se macuje?
znate onaj fajt crnca sa stormtruperom koji ima neko hladno oruzje s kojim se moze parirati lajtsejber?
stormtruperi, kao svaka moderna presadija, imaju standardizovanu opremu
crnac je stormtruper i on je imao taj mac na izvlacenje i prema tome bio treniran da ga koristi
zato crnac zna da se macuje
istina, nije bas isto ovo i ono ali sustinski jeste, a i bitno je za shvatiti da ta scena postoji JEDINO da bi se to objasnilo i da bi se omogucila borba crnca sa kilom rena

2. zasto glupaca zna da se macuje, a luk je onoliko morao da vezba; njega smo gledali smotanog a nju ne?
rej je can-do zenska i mnogo veci fajter od luka - ima onu motku koju prilicno vesto rabi sto znaci da ima iskustva prsa o prsa (sto film takodje pomalo neumesno naglasava), a luk je fini decko; takodje da se pretpostaviti da rej ima jos veci afinitet za tzv. silu od luka, a i luk je vrlo brzo kopcao sve u svemu, a takodje je i anakin pa se moze postulirati da sila omogucava da se neke herojske stvari tipa borba i letenje brzo kopcaju

Odgledao i ja konačno SW. Zadovoljan sam, za mene iskusni Harison Ford dominira ovom epizodom. Zadovoljan sam i odnosom između CGI i same priče. Ono jedino što bih dodao je da bih scenario začinio sa malo humora poput onog iz starih epizoda. Takođe, kraj sasvim efektan, nagoni fanove da priželjkuju naredni film.

Gotovo desetogodisnju apstinenciju gledanja filmova  u bioskopima prekinuh sinoc upravo sa "Budjenjem sile". Doduse gledao sam u tom periodu gomilu crtaca  :wink: a, istine radi, i sinoc su me klinci pratili (i njima je ovo debi film sa pravim glumcima a jos plus, super je sto je mnogo toga u filmu animirano :) ). Jos smo tokom proteklih nedelja zajedno odgledali i originalnu trilogiju sto znaci da su bili  temeljno pripremljeni  8) .
  Elem, da li zbog svega gore navedenog (a jos plus ovo je i 3D i to ne Pixar  :-x :wink: )  ili zato sto je stvarno dobar ali meni je SW VII prijao. Nije on u rangu "Imperije uzvraca udarac" ali je definitivno bolji od "Povratka Dzedaja" i blizu "Nove nade" (i to bukvalno, jer je prakticno neka vrsta rimejka tog filma).
 Klinci su naravno odusevljeni a koliko  Force Awakens lici na prethodne filmove mozda je najbolji prikazati kroz komentar mog sedmogodisnjeg sina. Kada je saznao da je Onaj u stvari  sin od Hana Sola rece mi:"Tata, sada ce opet da bude ono "Fader, San i San, Fader" ( Father ! Son !.... Son ! Father )  :wink: "
  btw. koliko je ovo prilagodjeno deci govori i ovo, opet cu citirati mladjeg koji mi je lepo rekao negde nakon 30ak minuta filma :"Tata ne moras da mi citas ovo dok caskaju, samo ono sto je vazno"  :wink:

Dakle, na skali od 1-5 dao bih ovom filmu sasvim solidnu trojku.

 Star Wars Will Get Openly Gay Character, JJ Abrams Says
 
Quote

Future installments in the iconic and long-running Star Wars series will "of course" feature openly gay characters, The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams said this week.
"Of course!" Abrams said at a pre-Oscar event at the headquarters of his Bad Robot company, according to a report from The Daily Beast. "When I talk about inclusivity it's not excluding gay characters. It's about inclusivity. So of course."
He went on to say, "To me, the fun of Star Wars is the glory of possibility. So it seems insanely narrow-minded and counterintuitive to say that there wouldn't be a homosexual character in that world."
Abrams isn't directing Star Wars: Episode VIII, as that duty is in the hands of Rian Johnson. However, Abrams is on-board as an executive producer for the film, due out in 2017.
The Force Awakens opened in December and quickly became one of the biggest movies of all time. It has made more than $2 billion worldwide and currently stands as the No. 3 movie ever in terms of global box office, only behind Titanic and Avatar.
As Polygon points out, author Chuck Wendig's 2015 Star Wars novel Aftermath--which is canon--featured an openly gay character. Wendig caught some amount of flak for this.
The next entry in the film series, Rogue One, arrives in December.

Sad sam primjetio temu i ne mogu da dođem sebi od ovih pozitivnih komentara. Ovaj film je smeće neopisivo. Harison Ford je bio OK, ali to je zaista jedina stvar u cijelom filmu koja je bila OK.

Ja sam mislio da vec imaju gay-characters, zar nisu Harison Ford i Cupavo Stvorenje par? Dobro, tu je princeza ali ona je totalni tomboy - treba biti pedofil da se to voli - tu ni Jabba-Designs makeover ne pomaze.

Meni samo nije jasno zasto, kada su ispunjavali sub-saharan kvotu, nisu mogli naci nesto ljepseg tipa, sto manje lici na obrijanu gorilu.

Odgledo sinoć. Dobar ratni film ubačen u SW univerzum. Na mojoj internoj skali za star wars, od 1-10, dajem mu 7, dok bi EP VII ocenio tankom četvorkom, posebno zbog Rena i onog Snouka. Nemož da bidne SW film bez Sita. Kakvi vitezovi Rena i Senfa, kakav First Order...

Što se mene tiče, Edwards se ovim iskupio za kilavu Godzillu. Film nije savršen, daleko od toga, prva polovina je mogla da bude i dinamičnija (ne mislim na više akcije, možda na više emocija?) ali je od polaska na Skarif pa do kraja vrlo dobro urađen i komprimuje sve Star Wars trope u nekih 45 minuta brizantne akcije i tih, jelte, emocija. Film u kome od samog početka znamo kraj a ipak ima odličan saspens, to treba pozdraviti. Ja sam zadovoljan i rado ću ga gledati ponovo kad bude prilike.

Uzgred, scenografiju i kostime treba ozbiljno pohvaliti. Film savršeno pogađa "lived in" ton primeren Star Warsu, pogotovo u ovom istorijskom trenutku, oklopi stormtrupera su izgrebani i blatnjavi, vozila su bespotrebno masivna i sa apsurdno mnogo prostora unutra, interfejsi su mehanički i kabasti za korišćenje, vrlo sam ovim zadovoljan.

Jes, to su detalji koje ne bi smeli prevideti, ipak je to Epska fantastika u svemiru, ne SajFaj sa hologramskim ekranima i ostalim StarTrek gadžetima. Hologrami su tu samo za telefoniranje i mapiranje postrojenja :)
Ja kao redovni i verni čitalac StarWarsa nisam sumnjao da će scenaristički biti dobar, toliko je priča dobrih u tom 'inbitvin' universumu.
Usraše ga sa nastavkom, totalni buljaši.A imali su lepo u novelama dobre materijale.

'Rogue One': The Digital Grand Moff Tarkin Is Terrifying for All the Wrong Reasons (Spoilers)
 
Quote

Warning: Some spoilers for Rogue One to follow
At this point, Star Wars fans are accustomed to seeing their favorite characters return from the dead, and their favorite stories recycled with new computer effects. The new Star Wars movie Rogue One takes both ideas to the next level by resurrecting a familiar human character — Grand Moff Tarkin, Darth Vader’s formidable right-hand man in A New Hope — in a CGI performance. True to George Lucas’s forward-thinking vision for the Star Wars films, it’s an impressive piece of special-effects craft that’s never been attempted on this level. Whether it works — and what it bodes for the future of the Star Wars universe — is another story.
Grand Moff Tarkin, the ruthless general who presided over the Death Star and ordered the destruction of Princess Leia’s home planet Alderaan, was played by British actor Peter Cushing in the original 1977 Star Wars. The character was blown up with the Death Star at the end of the movie, and Cushing himself died in 1994 at the age of 81. Tarkin has returned to the big screen once before, for a wordless cameo at the end of the prequel trilogy. In 2005’s Revenge of the Sith, the character was played by Wayne Pygram, outfitted with extensive prosthetics to resemble Cushing.  Reportedly, George Lucas considered using stock footage to bring Cushing’s character back to life for Sith, but the poor condition of the existing footage made it impossible.
 
If this is true, then Rogue One is the fulfillment of Lucas’ dream. Rogue One’s Tarkin is an uncanny digital re-creation of late-1970s Peter Cushing with a voice to match. (Rogue One takes place immediately before the events of A New Hope, when a band of Rebels steals the Death Star plans from the Empire.) The character’s first appearance elicited gasps from the audience at the New York press screening — but the real shocker is how much screen time he gets. Though it probably only adds up to a few villainous minutes, Tarkin’s role is a substantial one. And while CGI has been used to resurrect dead actors before (the most notable example being Paul Walker in Furious 7), it’s never been done with a major character for such a sustained amount of time.

The effect is so groundbreaking that when a report leaked last summer of a CGI Peter Cushing appearing in Rogue One, many outlets flat-out didn’t believe it. Even with significant advances in motion-capture technology (allowing, for example, Robert Downey Jr. to play his younger self in Captain America: Civil War), it seemed too daunting a task. But Industrial Light & Magic’s John Knoll, who came up with the concept for Rogue One (and also co-created Photoshop), was confident that it would work.
“John was always like ‘No we can do this, we can do it, we can do it,’” director Gareth Edwards told RadioTimes. “To be honest, a lot of people were nervous the whole time, like ‘Is this gonna happen?’ And then we went all or nothing in.”
So ILM set about creating a character based solely on Cushing’s scenes from a single (non-digital) movie. Fortunately, Cushing made plenty of other films — he’s remembered in particular for his Hammer horror movies — which reportedly came in handy when the animation team realized they had no footage of Grand Moff Tarkin’s feet. (Cushing often told the story of how the leather riding boots worn by the Imperial troops were too small for his feet, so Lucas agreed to let him wear his house slippers and shoot him from the knees up. Here’s photo evidence.)
“They are going through hours and hours of old footage from the horror movies to recreate his legs and feet to produce realistic movements,” a source tattled to the Daily Mail last summer. “It is eerie to see someone who has been dead for so long come to life on a screen.”

Still, a motion-capture character requires an actual actor, whose performance is then transformed by digital animators. (A more traditional example from Rogue One is the droid K-2SO, played by Alan Tudyk.) To play Tarkin, Edwards cast Guy Henry, a classically trained British actor who already had a few minor Hollywood baddies on his resume (Heyer in V for Vendetta, Pius Thicknesse in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts 1 and 2). “It was very gracious of him, because essentially he’s doing this big performance and getting zero credit for it,” Edwards told RadioTimes of his actor. “He was gonna be totally replaced, and then had to keep it all secret.” (In order to cover its legal bases, Disney also obtained permission from Peter Cushing’s estate, which is managed by his former secretary.)All this top-secret ILM work had one goal: To make it appear as though Peter Cushing has magically returned to reprise his Star Wars role. Whether they succeeded is debatable. Without a doubt, Digital Tarkin looks like Cushing. (Disney has not yet released any photos or clips of the digital recreation.) He sounds like Cushing. But he is not Cushing. One of the things that makes Cushing’s original performance so terrifying is how genteel he is. Take a look at the scene in which Tarkin destroys Leia’s home as she watches in horror (below). The cold glint in his eyes is that of a ruthless killer, yet he’s so cordial, almost playful with Leia. Watching him, you’re not sure if you want to cower in a corner or curl up and take a nap inside one of his mellifluous “r”s.

The cartoon Cushing, on the other hand, has none of those beguiling qualities: He is an English-accented attack dog, affixed with a permanent sneer. And the longer he is onscreen, the more two-dimensional he appears (literally and figuratively). While a few critics have complimented Cushing’ s “performance,” most are finding it distracting at best, an uncanny-valley nightmare at worst. “Even [Cushing’s character] Baron Frankenstein would have been horrified by this kind of grave-robbing,” writes New York’s David Edelstein.
Rogue One contains one other can’t-miss-it CGI character whose appearance is more convincing, if only for its brevity. But the effect is far from flawless. Much more satisfying is the reappearance of Return of the Jedi character Mon Mothma, played by lookalike actress Genevieve O’Reilly (the original performer, Caroline Blakiston, is now an octogenarian). Like Ewan McGregor playing Obi-Wan Kenobi in the prequels, O’Reilly adds new dimension to a character whose original appearance was all too fleeting — and if Lucasfilm isn’t bringing these characters back to make us see them in a new light, then why bother?
Maybe the answer is: Because it’s never been done before. Years from now, Rogue One will be noted as a landmark in movie special effects — and though Tarkin will no doubt look even cruder in retrospect, new animation technology can always be applied later (much like Lucas tweaked the rudimentary Jabba the Hutt character in his Special Edition of A New Hope between its 1997 theatrical premiere and the 2004 DVD release). Digital Tarkin may be divisive now, but in 40 years, when Lucasfilm decides to honor Harrison Ford by pairing off digital Han Solo and digital Indiana Jones for a buddy comedy, no one will blink an eye. The scariest thing about the Peter Cushing character in Rogue One is that he’s only the beginning.
