Greedo's Last Shot

 Pages PREV 1 2
 

I could have sworn that Fett mentioned "He's worth more to me alive.", at some point.

Also, Greedo may have just fired a warning shot, to try and rattle Solo. Although, that would mean that it did rattle Solo. Which would be further detremental to Solo's character. So, Greedo's worse than a Stormtrooper.

I think the main reason was because George Lucas thought Star Wars was a comedy, and so all bad guys needed to have terrible aim.

I love how happy the stormtrooper looks skipping through the destruction.

That would hold water if the Stormtroops actually did have bad aim and the movies didn't show them utterly destroying any opponents that they came across.

Greedo lives and becomes a Jedi? Wow.

Also.

Greedo's Critical Miss.

The "How to shoot like a stormtrooper" mag made my day.

Probably not who it's supposed to be, but why is Skwisgaar Skwigelf teaching people to shoot first?

JimHawking:
Am I the only one who thinks the guy on the magazine looks like Skwisgaar Skwigelf?

... not skinny enough, but there's a resemblance. Pretty sure it's supposed to be

Yeah you're right.

"In the edited version, he's either blind or high, as he fails to shoot a man sitting literally less than a meter away from him." this made me laugh so hard.

They should remake it so Greedo is high off his face. Maybe like the guy who tries to rob Bruce Willis in 5th element.

"No less than a dozen expanded universe books"?
Are you sure you don't just mean errotic finfic

That "How to shoot like a stormtrooper" book seriously needs to be made into a poster, maybe a T-shirt too.

The best version I read was in one of the "Tales" series, where he's a hopped up twit trying to do a shakedown to prove himself to Jabba. The whole thing was a setup though, Greedo had a price on his head (can't remember offhand why), and the bounty hunter who steered him towards Han knew he would shoot his mouth off and get blasted.

I think Greedo was the last descendant of a lost Rodian family that had been at war with another family in the past.

I like the Special Editions... *Continues post from bunker*

I like how he made the lightsaber special effects better so they weren't clearly sticks with 70s glow effects superimposed. I like how the Emperor Palpatine scene in Empire was changed so he actually looks and sounds like he does in the other movies. I like how Moss Eisely looks like a bustling trade center. Aaaaand it never mattered to me whether Greedo shot first or not. Han is a badass regardless of blaster timing.

All that said, I feel adding the "Noooo!" added at the end of Return of the Jedi was unnecessary and kind of spoils the moment.

I can tolerate the remasters to an extent but the "Nooooo!" is stupid and the fact they replaced Vader's ghost with Hayden Christensen's at the end SUBVERTS THE WHOLE GODDAMN STORY ARC OF VADER BEING REDEEMED BEFORE HIS DEATH. THE ANAKIN SKYWALKER WHO DIED ON THE DECK OF THE SECOND DEATH STAR WAS A GOOD MAN.

Yeah they mostly did that for continuity purposes. I guess you could say that it was Anakin redeemed to who he was before he became Darth Vader, but it's really all about tying it to the prequels.

Poor guy couldn't hit a womp rat with a photon torpedo
Also: DVS BSTrD shot posted first!

Did Grey get digitally enhanced to semi-dodge in this version?

Lucas only changed the scene to allow the remastered edition to get a G rating. Seriously, he wasn't trying to piss off the fandom.
