If only we had some kind of book or movie to tell us whether or not this is a good idea…
You have 30 seconds to comply! 😬

sometimes I think they do it on purpose. :rolleyes:






little known fact: that's exactly how the planet "scariff" got its name in Rogue One.
Gareth Edwards was tasked with naming the planet for the final act of the film.
he couldn't think of anything, so he took a break, and went to Starbucks.
when they asked his name, he said "..it's Gareth" -- so naturally they wrote "Scariff" on the cup. :p


“I go over to get a coffee from Starbucks. I’m thinking, ‘What could be the name? It could be this. Maybe we could use that?’ Then at the very end, she gives me the drink and they must have asked my name and I must have said, ‘It’s Gareth,’ but they heard ‘Scarif.’ They wrote Scarif on the cup and I was like, ‘That sounds like Star Wars.’

"I went back in and I just give it to Gary and went, ‘It’s called Scarif.'”

His side too:

even sped up like that, it's a brilliant piece of editing.
the two combatants are face-to-face.
Greedo is pointing a gun in Han's face.
the screen fills with smoke and light.
the audience wonders.... did Han get shot!?
the smoke clears and Greedo slumps forward. *whew*

(Marcia won an oscar for this scene. George was bummed.
he wanted a full-on, slapstick, catina bar fight... but he didn;t have the budget.
it's no wonder he changed it -- endlessly. he couldn't stand it.
he "Erased" her oscar-winning performance from the anals of History.
wow. Divorce much?) 😲

I’ve NEVER heard that before. The world I live in now makes more sense.
