Proof that George Lucas Originally Intended for Greedo to Shoot First in the Cantina

Star Wars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Star Wars fans will debate just about anything to do with the series. In the first movie, there is a scene in the Cantina where Han Solo appears to shoot Greedo first. That’s what we all believed to be the case. In a future edit, George Lucas tinkered with the original film and had it appear more clearly that Greedo shot first. Fans were outraged of what seemed like a minor change, resulting in a major character change for Han Solo.

Lucas’s position was that Greedo was supposed to shoot first. A researcher into the detail of the scene backs up the edit as being the originally intended vision for the scene.

Paul Duncan, author of The Star Wars Archives: Eps I-III: 1999-2005 recently filmed an unboxing, during which Duncan revealed how specific Lucas had been in his planning of the now-infamous cantina scene. He explained, “I found a document… that actually says that on frame 52, is the approximate start mark for Greedo– for his misfire. And frame 57 — five frames later, which is less than a quarter of a second — approximate start for Han returning fire.”

This raises a fascinating question. What if the original movie leaves something vague and open to interpretation, as our interpretation viewing was Han Solo shot Greedo first only to be edited years later to make it more clear that wasn’t the intended situation to be presented in the story?

Should the director change it in an edit or leave it the way it was? Sometimes mistakes in art become genius. Fixing the mistake can distort and damage the art.

I don’t like that Lucas kept tinkering with the original film Star Wars. I’m OK with him making director’s cuts and alternate versions, but don’t like when the original film is edited to modify the intent of scenes. I’m not the creator, but as a fan and viewer, I want Han Solo to have shot first in the Cantina. Maybe that wasn’t what Lucas wanted but it came out that way and it makes Han Solo’s renegade character more ruthless by him shooting first.

So, guess I’m siding with others that want to maintain the purity of this original scene. Heck, if they want to tell another story about Greedo and Han Solo, Disney has an opportunity here to expand on this infamous misunderstood scene.

Tesla Cybertruck replaces Back To The Future DeLorean in Clever Clip

Electric-powered truck that looks pretty badass. $100 deposit gets you on the list

Back To The Future ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This video edit for Tesla Cybertruck is surprisingly well crafted.

A team from Toronto-based Fort York VFX created the 52-second video, which reimagines the scene where Doc Brown first tests the time machine he has built. In the original, of course, Doc uses a DeLorean — but instead, we see Elon Musk’s blocky truck as the vehicle that will whisk Marty back to 1955

The Tesla Cybertruck is projected to be available in 2021 – 2022 and available at a suggested retail starting at $39,000 USD. Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla is saying that there are additional unannounced features that make it even more “great.”

In response to a fan, Musk stated that the Cybertruck’s heating and air conditioning system will work in the truck’s bed area when the cover is closed, that the bed should be accessible from second-row seating, and that the Cybertruck will likely have Tesla’s “bioweapon defense mode” air filtering system.

Tesla Cybertruck > Delorean? Think Mcfly, THINK.

Just include a Flux Capacitor and time travel and money is no object.

Win $10,000 Remixing Terminator: Dark Fate Trailer

Adobe is teaming up with a movie trailer remix contest Sept 16 – Oct 7, 2019

Enter this cool Terminator: Dark Fate trailer remix contest and win the grand prize of $10,000, one year Adobe Creative Cloud membership and a private screening for up to 50 people. Also, there is a prize for video editors under age 24 of $2,000 and two runner-up prizes of $1,000 each.

Gotta love creative contests like these. I’m not very good at video editing, so doubtful I’ll be entering, but it’s an exciting contest. Good luck to all who enter!

(Sidenote: Speaking of Terminator: Dark Fate (PREVIEW) and videos. My son, Joel and I discussed how Terminator: Dark Fate could be in the same league as the other two James Cameron Terminator flicks. This is raw, unedited footage and the audio is definitely more worthy than the video, as we’re just driving around and recorded this, so I will probably replace with an edited version later)

Can Terminator: Dark Fate possibly be as good as T1 and T2?
