#487768 Star Wars Movies and Disney Fanfiction Thread

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 14 July 2018 - 06:57 AM

Here are some things that I'd like to see in the next movie:


1. No redemption arc for Kylo Ren. His character arc from whiny apprentice to bad@$$ Supreme Leader was one of the best things to come out of the Last Jedi. It's like one of those pretty frequent what-ifs from any Vader related thing where he thinks about killing Palpatine and becoming Emperor, only Kylo Ren has the guts to actually carry it through. I really hope they don't throw that away in Episode IX.


2. DO NOT BRING BACK PHASMA AGAIN. You didn't use her well in Episode VII, you barely used her at all in Episode VIII, so don't bring her back again in Episode IX. Gwendolyn Christie has done much better in other things, like Game of Thrones, so stop trying to bring her back for five seconds in each movie. She is there for no other reason than to be the new Boba Fett, but the only problem is that Boba Fett actually did stuff in the movies, while Phasma is there just to look cool. Boba Fett is not cool based only off of what he looks like, but what he does: its why the Phasma books and comics staring her are better than her on screen appearances.


3. This is a total pipe dream, and there is no chance of this happening, but I'd like to see Boba be in this film. I'd like to see kind of like a grizzled old man bounty hunter, which, yes, we've seen before in the old canon, but not really to a great extent. Maybe him and Lando can team up and do stuff together.


4. I love to see Force Ghost Luke show up, since he's the only original cast member who can feasibly come back for the last film. I would also like to see Snoke come back as well, not as a force ghost (since Sith aren't supposed to be able to do that) but as some sort of dark side spirit like Darth Bane from the Clone Wars. I would love to potentially see Snoke and his mother dying driving Kylo in a futher downward spiral into the dark side.


5. Please do something cool with the Knight of Ren before you kill them off. I like the fact that Rian Johnson didn't do anything with them, because supposedly he used the Praetorian Guard instead of them, so J.J. or whoever is making the next film better top that action scene if you're going to kill them off like that, or at least answer some questions we have about them before you do.

#487711 Star Wars Movies and Disney Fanfiction Thread

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 28 June 2018 - 06:34 AM

I'm going to have to disagree with you buddy, because I'd love Disney to actually pander to my interests for once.


Just because the movie is about a Character we know about doesn't mean that it has to be "OOH LET'S PLEASE ALL THE NECKBEARED FANBOYS OOH" A movie about Obi Wan or Boba Fett can still have new ideas or new lessons to teach, but it all hinges on the script or director making good choices. Also, what are you talking about? Boba Fett isn't even white anymore: he's portrayed by a New Zealand Actor. I'd love to see Disney actually do something with characters that I actually care about, instead of making carbon copies of them like Phasma. But Disney doesn't care what I think: Disney only cares about what makes them money, and since Solo didn't preform well, I doubt they will ever try to actually try something different like that again.


Another point I'd like to hit on (because it's apparently an even bigger problem now) is that if the Empire made you uncomfortable during that border scene you talked about, then it was intentional. Disney isn't being subtle or clever with the Empire, because why do that when you can beat people over the head with the message that "WHITE SUPREMACIST SPACE NAZIS ARE BAD DURR" I know that this was probably the case with the old canon, but they aren't even trying. These days, the Empire consists of nothing but Space Nazis, Competent Villains who can't do jack because then things would actually be interesting, and Good People who will obviously desert because when have any good people worked for the bad guys amiright? The more of the new Empire I see, the more I appreciate the Empire from Episodes 4 & 5, back when they were an actual threat: thanks to Episode 6, the Empire is a joke. Nazis were a legitimately scary part of our history, and when the empire was portrayed as them, they were freaking terrifying. Now, the Empire is portrayed like Naizs from propaganda, so they act like stupid clods who are mean sometimes. It makes me angry to see them continualy get away with atrocious writing for the villains, even though they're arguably more popular with fans, but its okay because nobody likes the Empire amiright? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!


Being embarrassed about a toxic part of your fandom is a really stupid reason for giving up on it entirely. Should I stop hoping for a Boba Fett or Obi Wan movie just because the possibility is slim? No. I want to see a movie with characters I actually care about, dammit, not a bunch of new people who I have zero connection with. Should I probably try to form a connection with these new characters, yeah, but Disney better actually try to make them good instead of being like "Well, if you didn't like Rose or Holdo, its because you're a misogynistic a-hole, not because we didn't write a good character for them." At least they're trying with Rey enough that I actually care what she does, because she's starting to break out of the Mary Sue mold because she's going through character development (I wish I could say the same about the male characters, but like in every movie I've seen with a female lead, the men are either stupid or evil).


Long story short, I don't care if Disney makes movies about characters from the old canon who I actually care about, or makes movies about new characters I need to build a connection with. I just want them to try, not tell me that if I don't like what they've made its because there's something wrong with me instead of them.


EDIT: Yes, I would have liked to have some answers about Rey's Parents or Snoke's past. You know why? BECAUSE I WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THEM. Yeah, Rey doesn't have to be related to Anakin or Obi Wan to be interesting, but you can supply a better answer to that question than "Yeah, they were drunks who didn't care about you. Who cares if people wanted a better answer to this question?!" Snoke doesn't have to be Mace Windu, but the least you can do is answer questions we have about him, like how did he become the Supreme Leader, instead of killing him off in the next movie you show him in. Don't tell me that I'm a toxic fanboy for wanting answers to questions that you failed to answer, you stupid multi-million dollar company!  :brickwall:

I'm so glad that somebody other than me watched those extra Dwarf Scenes from BoTFA. :)

Here's Hori if you want to use him as a spectator:


Head: this head plus this white version of this beard and hair

Cape: Grey Cape

Body/Legs: Gandalf Torso and Legs

Weapon: this sword

Shield: A Brickforge Battle shield with the ram decal from Scorp's Northern Guard pack, but with the colors changed to the Horngofgasta goat.


If you don't use him, that's fine.

Nice work on Athens' armor, although I think the next step for you as an artist is to try a different style with character's faces. The style is fine when the scene is cartoonish (like Lego or emulating a cartoon) but when it is combined with more detailed things like a set of armor, or a lot of background material, it can come off as a bit in-congruent.


But maybe that's just me. Anyway, keep up the great work. 


That's just my art style, dude. I'm sorry if you don't like his simplistic face, but if my faces get too detailed, they tend to look older than they actually are. :P




Ah yes!


Seeing Lord Gwyn and Lord Talon fighting puts a smile on my face!


I'm also quite a fan of the concept art for your own universe. I'm curious to know more about the place(s).




Anyways, on to the art!


First up, a drawing I forgot to upload last Christmas:




Next, more Fantasy Doodles:




Next, Werewolves from my Age of Darkness RP Campaign:

There's too much to like in this update.


Between the Wulfgard-style "HEYA" meme to the Old School LEGO drawing, I just smiled.


Of course seeing my two characters go head to head is always great! Keep up the awesome work!

#487280 Star Wars Movies and Disney Fanfiction Thread

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 01 June 2018 - 02:56 PM

But I know people in this thread probably feel those movies DO do well as stand-alone films in that regard and I respect that but I just didn't feel that come through as much as I did in the OT or in Rogue One.


I think that Rouge One was the perfect combination of the awesome visuals of the OT and the emotionless acting of the Prequels. :P


My two cents is that I think that the tone of most Star Wars films have stayed the same (i.e. Cheesy Sci-fi flicks), which is why I enjoy the OT, Prequels, and sequel films equally. Some of them are better than others though, but I think that the Last Jedi got the short end of the stick with the neckbearded fanboys that weren't happy that it didn't follow their fan theory. I do have problems with all the wasted potential that is in the film (you know what I'm talking about if you've seen it), but it wasn't enough that I walked out of the theater angry.


I'm reserving judgement on Solo until I see it. What I'm expecting to see (and hope I do see) is Han going on a bunch of different adventures, kind like Cowboy Bebop.


EDIT: Speaking of fan theories, and on an unrelated note, I think Dan Harmon brings up a good point about them.
