    Hey all,

    With Rinzler gone, it feels like the community is down a member... I didn't know him (never met J.W.R.), but he's had such a big role to play for the fandom that I thought we should honor him in some way. Also, he seemed like a really good guy, so <3

    Do any of you have any fond memories of meeting J.W.Rr? Of reading his books? Please share. Show off your book photos. Spread the love.

    In the meanwhile, here are The Resistance Broadcast's two episodes with J.W.R.; real quality, behind the scene stuff, and some of TRB's best content to date. Have a watch and remember the guy who gave us all the behind the scenes insights :)

    RIP J.W.R.

    Aw, man… I knew her was seriously ill, but hadn’t seen that he’d actually died. That’s utter bobbins :(

    I had a clear out of some stuff last year during lockdown, but had drawn the line at the making of… books as I still go back to them often.

    I have all three of his Star Wars OT books and I plan on making my way through all of his movie books - firstly through all of his Star Wars making of books, then on to Indy making of books, then his book on Kazanjian, and then his book on other movies.

    He's sort of my Terry Pratchett of movie journals.

    Also of note...
    Any aspiring screenplay writers I help along, and even those who already have a foot in the door, (I mingle with plenty of both), I point to Rinzler's book on the first Star Wars as the book they need to read for an education on movies.

    I think every 101 film class should basically have that as the year one textbook. There's almost nothing in the industry that's not touched on in that book, let alone the history and theory of cinema that's discussed in incredible wealth in there.

    Package that with When The Shooting Stops ... The Cutting Begins by film editor Ralph Rosenblum and you have yourself a powerhouse of cinema education.

    Cheers,
    Jayson
