Hey Shacknews, it's time for First Post! Let's officially kick off our day of posting. Please take a look.
Star Wars Greedo scene the way it should be
When a bounty hunter's planning to kill you in cold blood, what's the harm in shooting first? From #StarWars' Despecialized Edition, here's how Han truly took care of Greedo, long before Lucasfilm tried gaslighting us into believing otherwise. pic.twitter.com/2n5tA58pDo— Marshall Julius (@MarshallJulius) November 17, 2019
Thanks to ThomW, for bringing this to my attention on Twitter. Most of these dumb kids today are too busy pooping their pants over a baby Yoda to even understand why this clip is great. Back in my day... Rassam Frassam...
Bong Joon Ho on why he wouldn't direct a Marvel movie
In a recent interview with Variety, Parasite director Bong Joon Ho explained why he is not interested in superhero films:
"I have a personal problem. I respect the creativity that goes into superhero films, but in real life and in the movies, I can't stand people wearing tight-fitting clothes. I'll never wear something like that, and just seeing someone in tight clothes is mentally difficult. I don't know where to look, and I feel suffocated. Most superheroes wear tight suits, so I can never direct one. I don't think anyone will offer the project to me either. If there is a superhero who has a very boxy costume, maybe I can try."
I hope he ends up directing a movie about a super hero who wears cargo shorts and hoodies. Hopefully that wouldn't be too "mentally difficult." LOL.
ImageOmega's Death Stranding take is solid
Our very own ImageOmega posted a video to the Shacknews Chatty yesterday, but I wanted to highlight it here on the First Post! This game is certainly proving to be very divisive, but I am enjoying my playthrough. I agree that it is a game that needs to be played to be properly judged, as watching a Twitch stream will not do it justice.
Loved death stranding!!! HOPE it wins!!! pic.twitter.com/E272sDlJNx— PAREDESSSS (@PAREDESSSS1) November 19, 2019

Must have been a good birthday weekend.
I learned the night before!!!!!!
It's amazing how 5 seconds of a film can completely change a character. Solo in the original cut is bad ass. All the edits makes him weak and incapable.
Most importantly, it sets him up as being morally grey and gives greater meaning to Han & Wookies return at the end of the film.
