Star Wars: The Last Jedi Initial reactions

star_wars_the_last_jedi

Something for everyone. Something for new fans. Something for Prequel fans. Something for Original Trilogy fans. Even something for Star Wars Legends (Star Wars Expanded Universe Fans). Lots of looking closely. Phrase resemblances. Full action scenes done differently from previous films. Sounds.

Possible spoilers:

Movie Kisses History

Do you remember your first kiss? Was it filmed? Before 1926, no movie from a major Motion Picture Studio had a deepened kiss in its movies. At this time, movies were still silent. Though not the first kiss filmed, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s “Flesh and Blood” starring Greta Garbo and John Gilbert made history in filming the first kiss by a major motion picture studio in 1926. (source for story)

20141214-ESSAY-slide-X4KY-master1050 (1)

The movie story, “Flesh and Blood” is about two boyhood friends that became soldiers together for Germany. One of them as a young man, met a Countess (Greta Garbo) and they fell in love. The Countess did not share she was married to an old Count, and when he found out, both of the boyhood friend soldiers were sent to the frontlines to die. The friend returned and developed a relationship with the Countess, then the original soldier returned and that rekindled their relationship. The Count died at that time.

Watch the first filmed kiss by MGM in “Flesh and Blood”:

 

Watch the facial expressions and how they sneak off to light a cigarette which was forbidden at the time. Watch the flickering of the light and subtle body language indicating a romantic interlude. How they are tucked away, alone in the rose brambles off a veranda while there is dancing and music playing. See who follows whom. Who is younger? Who is older? At the intimate moment, they share a lifetime breathed away with a kiss. Notice the grays and how it is offset by the highlights and the shadows.

The scene works without a soundtrack in black and white filming and film, because of the small minute facial expressions and movements with small cuts and edits. Back then, shots could not be easily edited after cut, but somehow the production crew was able to do it.

In totality, SWAG77 builds their headcanons for fan-fiction in this manner. If we had the time and software to go frame-by-frame, we would. We want to watch the entire movie “Flesh and Blood”. If we had the chance, we would like to read the original script. Unfortunately, in this time of social media, we do not. However, it is remarkable to see this iconic still image and brief video are timeless in its portrayal.

Why Is SWAG77 Strict On Joining

There are over 500 pages on Facebook that belong to the Star Wars Actors Guild 77 (SWAG77), many of them harmonized with other sites to share the latest Star Wars information and perspectives on any given topic. Then there are performances.

When Facebook decides to change its code, it interprets the old code as malware or code that is malicious and starts to attack honest users. Immediate restrictions are placed on content management. These restrictions are based on reports made by illicit users or businesses that wish to capitalize on the advancement any one page has made.

It’s been done to us before. That’s why we know. We are doing activities that will stop the cruel behavior and a security measure.

Please understand, if you are a duplicate account (a mutual) that SWAG77 already has in its database and you have not submitted any forms to us, or joined any of our groups, you will be banned from all our pages. We have to protect our business.

All our Facebook pages are in our directory: https://www.facebook.com/SWAGNAV/ and are earmarked as SWAG77 pages in the Impressum of the ABOUT section.

Our forms to join involve a vetting for our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1stSWAG77steps/

How We Choose To Roleplay (RP)

Ezra space-1

The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 chooses to roleplay (RP) a particular way that provides strong, accurate and authentic performances on social media.

Our guidelines are listed on this site: http://bit.ly/guidelines77

Support our efforts: http://bit.ly/SWStuffWAG77

We go at great strides to vet all our members to see if they know how to roleplay in a professional manner, willing to follow the guidelines as we have set them, and have a strong desire to read the literature, write scripts and fan-fictions. We cannot have subversion to our processes because of the amount of work required to organize several social media accounts that are managed and are under monetization through the main company, Ariafya LLC.

We expect all new fans to the SWAG77 to review our sites, our writing, our headcanons, our fanfictions, and our roleplays.

We expect all new fans to participate in our Q&A’s in a fair manner.

We expect all new fans to respect our process or move on to several other great Star Wars fan groups that are available on social media for participation. If it does not happen, we will block or ban the user. Because the way we see it, our right to lawfully compete in business is being interrupted with troll attacks.

There is no need to interact with individuals that fail to meet our expectations from a business perspective.

We want to remain present for Star Wars fans willing to work with us.

Thank you very much.
