    I haven't completed my thoughts on the chiastic nature of TROS yet, and it's going to take me a while to untangle how this one is woven together, so in the meantime I thought I'd start the dutiful Visual Poetry thread so everyone could start posting the stuff they spotted that was a mirror or refrain of another moment in another film.

    I'll chime in with my own later, but for now I just thought I'd get the thread opened so folks can start dumping thoughts, images, and videos.

    Happy hunting!

    Cheers,
    Jayson

    I will start with this, the most obvious and most beautiful:

    We probably have to wait for the Blu-Ray release of TROS to get really started.

    It's also fine to just write it out.

    For example, Rey's training was ESB Luke's training montage mirror.
    Rey with Kylo before she jumps onto the Falcon is a mirror of ESB Vader and Luke, "Join me" stand off.
    Ride through the canyon chase was mirror of two things: pod race, and speederbike chase (complete with a wrap around leading to an explosion).
    Kylo/Rey death scene Luke/Vader death scene, and Obi-Wan/Anakin death scene (metaphorical death of Anakin).
    The signal transmission for the star destroyers, shield generator of second death star of ROTJ, and droid control ship of TPM.

    More to come, I'll stop there...

    Cheers,
    Jayson

    Rey starts the trilogy thinking Luke Skywalker is a legend and she dreams of adventures while wearing an old X-wing helmet on Jakku.

    And she ends up driving Luke Skywalker's X-Wing to the final battle of the war. Loved that.

    Ok so have addd the spoiler tag to this thread otherwise it would have been a whol load of yellow spoiler tagged posts. :).

    Also Rey starts of the Trilogy sliding down a sand dune from a Imperial StarDestoryer ( a symbol of her un chosen origin)
    & ends it sliding down a sand dune into the Lars Homestead ( a symbol of her chosen future )
    This one real hit home on my second viewing.

    Thank you. I saw that right after hitting post, but I couldn't find a title edit option; just the post text.
    So thanks!

    Cheers,

    Rey falls down to die the same way as Padme on Mustafar after Anakin chokes her, but in a mirrored position. Sidenote: I realized that the movie starts with Sidious' "dark side ... unnatural" line and it leads me to think that Sidious survived by using Plagueis's way of cheating death, which involves "dark science" and such. Realized Kylo and Rey are Anakin and Padme 2.0, and Ben-Anakin saved the one he loved (Rey-Padme) from dying. So the third episode in the ST opens and closes with the theme of Anakin's talk with Sidious from the third episode in the PT about keeping people from dying.

    The Emperor does the same kind of gesturing with his hands to the Sith that he does to the Senate when he declares Galactic Empire.

    Not sure if this counts but the crashing waves of water during the duel seem like the inverse of the crashing waves of lava on Mustfar.

    Rey reflects lightning back at Sidious' face causing it damage, like Mace did. You might say Rey maced Sidious! Force-pepper spray.

    Plagueis "cheated death" by sending his essence into Palpatine when Palpatine murdered him, just as every other Sith Master sent their essence into the apprentices who killed them.

    That's what gets revealed to Rey in this film and is why Palpatine wants her to strike him down: so that he can live on in her, revitalized and able to re-conquer the galaxy using his "Final Order".

    I've found some. Not easy, not many shots of the movie leaked yet.
    20191223_092051.jpg 20191223_092134.jpg 20191223_091938.jpg Screenshot_20191223-085146_Chrome.jpg Screenshot_20191223-091359_Chrome.jpg Screenshot_20191223-090951_Chrome.jpg Screenshot_20191223-090611_Chrome.jpg Screenshot_20191223-090314_Chrome.jpg 20191223_092013.jpg 20191223_092109.jpg

    I found so much more parallels but I didn't find the pics yet.

    Right?

    It's going to take me so long to map everything out! I'm really looking forward to doing that!

    The way Rey slides down the homestead as Rey's theme plays, is how TFA opens with her sliding in the sands of Jakku.

    - Babu Frik in the window with Zori/Porg in the window with Chewie;

    - Reys levitating rocks/Luke levitating rocks;

    - Reys sliding in Jakku/Rey sliding in Tatooine;

    - Speeder chase in Pasana (aerial view)/Pod racer (aerial view);

    - Not sure but there is also a parallel between the Serpent and Kylo Ren. Both at the beginning look dangerous but Rey defies her fear to heal them both. Loved that!

    Also there are two parallels with the Goonies (or an homage?):

    - Rey with the dagger/amulet trying to find the right spot;

    Screenshot_20191223-095941_Chrome.jpg Screenshot_20191223-095854_Chrome.jpg

    - And the group in the tunnel when they see the skeleton of the murderer of Rey's father. Parallel with the finding of someone that I don't recall his name in a tunnel, also:

    Good catch!

    Goonies has tremendous sense of adventure, in a group of persons (kids). Indiana Jones is the same thing.

    JJ said that he wanted to gives us that sense of group adventure with our heroes, and I think these movies could've inspired him.
