Re: Bring back Vader
@SaneIt- I love it! A reformed Vadar would be awesome. Maybe he can come back like a giant eye like Sauron. No seriously, what a great idesa, because no one could possibly live up to the character that James Earl Jones and George Lucas created. 

The only problem is that he redeemed himself. I wonder how you "turn" a ghost?

Bring back Vader
How many movies have killed off the villain only to have them come back later in the movie or in the sequel?  I know the whole ghosts of dead Jedi thing would indicate that he really died but the whole ghost Jedi thing could be used as a way to re-incarnate characters.  I'd love to see the whole Vader/Anakin Skywalker struggle done a little more like the Clone Wars series than the movie prequels.

Re: New life to the Death Star
@jastro- Well, fortunately he only has to live up to Lucas, the Lucas that gave us episodes one through three. :)

Re: New life to the Death Star
After LOST, I stopped trusting JJ Abrams and his ability to tell a story.

I got it back after Star Wars.

 

But, JJ is no Spielberg, and Spielberg is no Kubrick.

Re: New life to the Death Star
@Dave, not a bad omen. Simply what you get when you cast an 80-year-old man in your movie and ask him to move. Love Harrison Ford, but no more Star Wars of Indiana for him, please!

I say toss Hayden Christensen into the Lego Ewok Village and let him suffer the insufferable.

Re: Well played
@Dave perhaps it's time to recycle some of your old geekend posts to give them new life...garbage to gold and all that. :)

Re: New life to the Death Star
I hope my asking for more interesting rumors from Star Wars isn't to blame for this: http://www.vanityfair.com/vf-hollywood/harrison-ford-star-wars-injury


Harrison Ford hurt his ankle during filming.

Anyone else think it it a bad omen that he hurt it on the door of the Millenium Falcon?
