Three or four years from now, a big 12 disc set will come out with good artwork, a new interview with George Lucas (perhaps Leonard Maltin will do the honors again), and maybe, just maybe, the non-special editions (although they might wait closer to ten years for that). So I'm just gonna hold my horses and not complain because Lucasfilm ain't listening.

Surely the DVD boxset everyone was expecting - and surely, the one they want - it the original trilogy as it was when the world first saw it. Not of these new versions Lucas keeps coming up with. All we want is the proper three movies the world fell in love with - tidy up the picture and sound for sure. And then add on as many true special features as possible. This should be commemorating the greatness of the original trilogy. Not changing it.

Ah, but what am I saying. This is Lucas. Was to be expected. The world wishes he'd spent more time trying to make Ep3 into a decent film, rather than ruining the few things he's responsible for which never needed to be retouched.

The French version is obviously widescreen then, and they've chopped off a bit from the bottom and the top to stick those stupid black bars there instead!!  :-D  :-D

phucking killer ........exspecially the a new hope ......thats one of my favorite parts in the film.were young luke ponders his destiny against the backdrop of a sunset sky w/ a bonus second sun also or they could be both moons or two moons.but suffice to say they are two celestial bodies in the sky as the the score turns and burns loud and serene. and swells...i know this was a geeky thing to say....but i m a phucking loser........

no, you're right. that is an amazing scene.

Yeah, that's the best scene in A New Hope.

...still won't be getting these though. Tape is just fine.

There's a really nice package on ebay, that claims to have an hour-long documentary as well. The cover is made to look like an entry to the Fox Five Star Collection, and for a bootleg it actually looks attractive.

thanks for the glancatar.

i really hayde that Hayden thing. it doesn't make any sense! you can't be a teenage force-ghost unless you became one with it as a teen, right?! i mean.. you can't die and be good when you're dying and then Death turns around and goes "hmmmm... you deserve a force-ghost because you redeemed yourself and killed the Emporer and saved your son.. but y'know? you were really more one with the force when you were a teenager. i really should've just taken you earlier. sorry. fuck that whole thing. here's your old body."

and how the FUCK does Luke even know who that is?!?!!?! he can't. he's probably just smiling now because it's so awkward to all of a sudden see this new force ghost from out of nowhere.

ask lucasiano that, but it's likely that he'll pull you down in the shit he has created. he can't change history now but he's going to fool the 3rd/4th generation of star wars fans. when people are going to see episode 3, some will revisit that scene. lame.

I love this thread..

Nothing like xixax.com to have a thread called, "Original Star Wars Trilogy never to be released on DVD" and we're all talking about the upcoming release.

LOL

On a totally unrealted note, I watched Dune last night.

Boy that movie sure is a fuck up, eh Lynch?

He's recovered nicely though.

He probably thinks the Special Edition versions released in 1997 were the Originals.
