    What do you think about Mara Jade in The Dark Redemption? I mean, the Mara I saw in the movie is very different from the Mara I've saw from the books.
    As in her history, as in her attitudes.
    What do you say?

    Her continuity was very screwed up.

    I got the feeling they didn't think much past: Dude, if we use Mara Jade, maybe we can cast a really hot actress.

    Well, there's nothing wrong with having a good lookin' chick act as MJ, but she didn't really fit the mental image I had of her.

    I was just the opposite. She fit my original mental image *too* well. It made me wonder if that was part of why LFL ordered the cease and desist, since they were only months away from announcing the official Mara Jade model/actress when TDR made its debut.

    That's a good point, Nathan. I hadn't thought of it that way.

    She looked alot more like Lara Croft then Mara Jade. I always pictured Mara Jade as more, I dunno, stronger somehow. The one in TDR just lacked that june a say qua (sp?).

    Mara Jade's looks were all right with me, but her character needed some major development. We really get no insight into who she is at all and then the "surprise ending" just comes off as wierd and non-sensical (they never suspected a thing? What were they suposed to suspect? The plans were correct and authentic...). I think that, because of these weaknesses, the Boba Fett subplot ended up being much more interesting because it was about a character I cared about.

    Thanks, Jaredan. I was trying to spell phonetically, and I guess it didn't work to well. :)

    due to popular demand, I have written a sequal to my loved fan fic about Jorf Cageef.
    *ahem*
    A long time ago, in a galaxy
    far, far away....

    Walee Contata exited his frieghter lovingly call A Frieghter. He realized that he landed on a balcony so he re-entered A Frieghter and took off.

    The End.

    Too long... does the first sentence really need the word "lovingly"?

    I don't think this captures the personallity of A Frieghter like the original did.

    In this one, A Frighter had to take a back seat to an emerging characters that was Walee Contata. I needed to develope Walee who will play an important part later on.

    Hmm... I didn't like it. Not a bit. I mean, sure they cast a good-looking actress, which ought to satisfy a portion of the male audience, but the personality was off. That just wasn't the Mara you see in the books and comics. They would have done better just leaving her out... would've been better for their plot's continuity, too.

    --MJEH (hey, I'm allowed to have a few opinions about she who I named myself for!)

    The cease and desist was apparently because the rules stipulated that no actual footage or sound effects from the movies themselves could be used in the fan movies, and Dark Redemption broke those rules, possibly because they used temp footage instead of finished.

    I assume (though I don't know for sure) that they fixed those elements for the currently available version.

    Hmmmm...

    Unfortunetly, I don't think the sequel captured the true spirit of Jorf's story. Maybe Walee could have stepped in Jorf Brains and didn't realise it until the third part.

    But overall, this is a classic story that should win the the noble prize for literature.

    Congratulaions on another fine effort Darth_Servo!

    I'm looking forward to the third installment.
    :p

    DR sat rather uneasily with me, i mean, any fan of Zahn's masterpeice would have high expectations of what Mara Jade would be like if acted out in live action. i felt that the actress portraying Jade definately had the look, if not the character, down... oh well, what can you do, it was still fun to watch!
