I'm sure Mark Hammil would have had nothing better to do on the day they recorded these.

fine by me cuz i think he has one of the most annoying voices on the planet. he sounds like lars ulrich on speed or something.

changing the Emperor will make it more noticeable than the original. i never even realized it wasn't the same actor. the face is covered in shadow. does (did) it ever seem out of place to you?

i wonder if Hayden C will lip synch to James Earl Jones then?
=)

well, i guess he would only sound like JEJ if he puts on the helmet in Ep. III

That man is a phenominal voice talent. Check out his IMDB info. I would prefer is he talked like Joker from Batman: The Animated Series all the time though.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

If they were REALLY ballsy, there would be the "After the Kids Have Gone to Bed Kevin Smith Commentary Track."

I mean, really, if Lord of the Rings can have four commentary tracks per movie, why the heck can't the original Star Wars trilogy???

Or an original Errol Morris documentary entitled "The Thin Green Line," which traces the history of who shoots first in the cantina scene. Talking with other denizens of the bar who originally witnessed the incident, piercing interviews with an old, washed-up Han about his intentions and actions, riveting Philip Glass score, and then a vindicating final scene in which Lucas, on audio tape, breaks down and admits that he altered history and that Han really did gun down innocent Greedo, and got away with it.

They should really just fucking stop releasing fullscreen DVDs.  Let the idiots fade away in the glorious splendor of natural selection, and the smart ones figure out that, hey, THIS is the way movies are supposed to be.  But WTF am I doing in a Star Wars thread anyway?  *goes to read more about Eternal Sunshine...*


I agree with you on the fullscreen thing, and was just about to post something on it.

Who prefers full over wide?  The people it realy matters to prefer wide anyway (or at least that's what I've noticed).

I also agree with the Star Wars to Eteranl Sunshine transition.

A peek at what you can expect when the STAR WARS trilogy hits DVD this fall. I don’t think the image requires much explanation, especially since message boards all over the Internet have been jammed with rumors about this particular change. You'd be wise to save this one to your desktops and redistribute it to friends in case it... ahem... mysteriously vanishes from here. Consider this your first official verification of that rumor:



Source: Digital Bits

I imagine by now many of you have seen the altered Return of the Jedi DVD screen shot posted yesterday over on Ain't it Cool News. While some sources are still hedging their bets... yes, we can confirm that this is authentic. It IS one of many changes that are being made to the original Star Wars films for the September 21st DVD release.

I don't really care anymore. I imagine we'll see Hayden's face when Vaders' mask is lifted at the end of Jedi as well.
It's like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.

I don't know why they had to come up with new, crappy artwork. They could have used the original release paintings or at least the special edition posters, which were pretty cool.

because then they would have to pay Drew Struzan a quarter for every dvd sold, and as episodes I and II's ultra shitty artwork has proven, they arent willing to do that.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.
