Last night I watched on Amazon a documentary called Plastic Galaxy. It about the creation of the original Star Wars vintage line of toys. They talk about the origins of Kenner and how they got the license. Lots of talk from toy designers and some pictures of prototypes that we never got. They go all the way up to the creation of the POTF2 line. Good hour long documentary about our favorite toys.
It's like someone came into your house and forcefully throw you off your property. You can sue them all you want but they have more resources than you so you loose even it the removal was completely illegal. That is our legal system. The guy with the most money wins. I wonder if there are any crowd sourcing sites for this kind of thing.
The thief has been fighting pretty hard over keeping the car with lots of delay tactics designed to cost lots of money. We hear the other side has spent on lawyer fees close to 100K last year. We finally had pretrial hearings back in September so the law suite is still alive. We are trying to get the hearing scheduled quickly but all of this costs a lot of money. It's possible we can get them to settle before trial but it seems unlikely until the day we go to court. He loses everything at that point. This is in a different league than that Corvette story.
If your going to do that why not just have a star destroyer bomb the tower from orbit? It would be more accurate and faster. Using the death star to destroy the tower is like using a nuclear bomb to blow up a fly.
She actually has screen credits from the fifties and sixties. As she got older, she turned her self into a parody of herself. Looking at those movies from the fifties, she was a pretty good looking lady. She was kind of Marilyn Monroe type. Her sister Eva was the better actress.
I've been thinking about the scene where Jyn has to climb out of the hard drive depository. There is a door that quickly opens and closes. It reminded me of the room in Galaxy Quest with all the stampers and cutters. I was thinking why is that there? Who designed an escape hatch that won't let you leave? I know it was probably malfunctioning but still kind of silly.
Also, who designs a control tower were you set something to transmit on one box but then have to go out on a platform to realign the dish on a another control? Why are they not in the same place? I think the whole point of it was so she had to shoot down the TIE fighter waiting with her blaster. I assume she shoots the pilot through the glass. I guess the glass can withstand the vacuum of space but not small arms fire?
Those two scenes felt a little video game like to me.
