The STAR WARS Movies Coming To Cinemas In 3D Starting 18 Months From Now??

I am – Hercules!! No word on who shoots first, but want to swoop down into the Death Star trenches in 3D anyway? Hollywood Reporter sources indicate all six of the live-action “Star Wars” movies will hit cinemas in 3D, starting in roughly 18 months. An official announcement is expected from LucasFilm Wednesday. Now the bad news. “The Phantom Menace” will be the first out of the gate in early 2012, according to the report. Then, if box office warrants, “Attack of the Clones” in early 2013, “Revenge of the Sith” in early 2014, “A New Hope” in 2015, “Empire Strikes Back” in 2016 and “Return of the Jedi” in 2017. We are going to be SO OLD! The story indicates the movies are being spaced out this way because it takes about a year to suck each movie into the third dimension. Word is one hold-up has been the wait for enough cinemas to finally upgrade to 3D capability. Lucas told the New York Times last month that all six movies (in 2D) will be hitting Blu-ray in 2011. For the record, "The Empire Strikes Back" is likely my favorite movie ever. (Fuck you, Metropolis! Fuck you, King Kong! Fuck you, The General! Fuck you, Anchorman! Fuck you, 2001! Fuck you, Modern Romance! Fuck you, Blade Runner! Fuck you, Monty Python and The Holy Grail! Fuck you, Godfather. Fuck you Annie Hall and The Graduate!) And "Star Wars" is not very far behind. So you can count on my $35 tickets at least twice, unless I die first. Find all of The Hollywood Reporter’s story on the matter here.

    I come to mourn a great Talkbacker: D.Vader

    by ColonelFatheart

    D.Vader was one of the most valuable Talkbackers on this site. He had been here a long time, and he always had something SMART and THOUGHTFUL to contribute to a conversation. Even when he disagreed with you, he did so respectfully, therefore commanding the same respect from you. <p> This place is overrun with trolls and spammers, but D.Vader gets the boot for merely questioning Beaks' arbitrary banning policy? Pardon my French, but what a load of shit. Vader deserved better than that. <p> Goodbye for now, Vader. You are a wise Talkbacker, a helluva Pedalbacker, and a loyal friend. I hope you will be back soon. <p> Beaks, if you have any appreciation for fairness, you will reinstate D.Vader. I call on all of you who laughed or argue with Vades over the years to join me in imploring Beaks to undo his grave error. It is time to fix this, sir.

Give me a new trilogy set in the SW universe by a competant director(s) and scriptwriters, that tells a different story with different characters. It will make a fuckton more money in the long run.

    stop milking homey, it's getting old. give some money to some new filmmakers with new ideas and make some new movies. for the prequel trilogy, 2d was enough, i don't know if I can take the suck in three dimensions, I won't give you any more money.

    by fastcars

    Two great movies. One good movie. A shitty Christmas special. Shitty Ewok spin-off specials. A "Special Edition" re-release of the first three movies, with terrible changes, downgrading them from "great" to "good." A horrible prequel. Another horrible prequel. An okay prequel with some lame moments. Another re-release of the original movies, with terrible changes, downgrading them from "good" to "okay." A forgettable TV series and interstitial movie. And now, ANOTHER shameless re-release of the original movies, that will probably downgrade them from "okay" to "bad." Really, you guys? People still care about this? George Lucas seems like he's on a hell-bent mission to make everyone apathetic about Star Wars. It worked for me.

    The only thing that would actually get me back into the cinema for this shit is if they digitally removed Jar Jar. Also, they would probably want to add a scene in AotC, where Natalie Portman digitally relieves Anakin of the 10 years worth of space-jizz that's accumulated in his big watermelon-like Jedi balls. It could do a 3D closeup of her swishing his pearly-white man-goo around in her mouth as if it's fucking Listerine.

    by 0101

    George sure knows how to push his ex-fans buttons dosen't he? Look, it goes like this see... I and so many others have been a fan of star Wars since 1977. That being said, I think that George Lucas should move on to other venues. He has completely lost the entire meaning of why he created star wars in the first place. Perhaps you should focus on your game companies. You clearly have no interest in what your true fanbase wants from you... 1. A truly excellent story focusing on the other characters of the Star Wars Universe. 2. Episodes 7, 8, and 9 (featuring an older Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker) which were originally promised to the fans by you so many times before the empire erased it from your memory. 3. Movies, television series and games based upon what happened a thousand generations ago. Before the dark times. Before the Empire. New worlds to explore, conquer, and fight over and with all new characters to boot. When you're ready to make good on these promises, call us. Otherwise let us sleep in.

    Lets start a movement to consider the prequels non canon. Preque

    by DARTH VOODOO

    Lets face it George Lucas ruined the legacy of the Star Wars films with his god awful prequel series. Most people look at the series in a much different light now than they did in 1998 before the dark times...before the prequels. I think there should be a fan movement to take the prequel films out of offical Star Wars canon. I say leave them in the same place as that X-mas special (the prequels were of the same quality as the X-mas special) with Bea Arthur and Jefferson Starship and start from scratch. Bring in a great writer and director who knows how to make epic films that don't insult their audience. Peter Jackson or JJ Abrams might be good candidates and throw those prequels down the toilet where they belong. If a project like that was announced today I think the majority of fans would welcome it. Lets make the horrendously bad prequels non canon. Lets offically forget that they were ever made.

    by yubnubrocks

    Everybody gasped? Really. The problem is Lucas says the movies are to now be watched "in order," as in 1, 2, 3, etc. It makes absolutely no sense why Vader's theme would not be in Ep. 4, IF that's how the movies are to be watched. If he can alter the movie so Greedo shoots first, he sure as hell can change the music. I just think he forgot.

    by MJDeViant

    A) it promotes 3D which is being used as a gimmick and and added to movies to make money. 3D isn't an artistic choice I'm afraid to say, it is about money. Like rating a movie PG-13 to get viwers when you know it should be an R. I'm not saying 3D CAN'T be good but we need to knock it down a few pegs so that maybe it can be special instead of just a splurge of commercialism turned into something everyone is used to in like 1 year. B) it supports Star Wars. Let Star Wars die. I loved it but now.....just kill it off. Let some people in 2080 remake it when we are all probably dead. Please stop funding cash grabs you idiots.

    3D Prequels.

    by Horgy

    Each Prequel has 1 or 2 good sequences that will look good in 3D. The rest of it is pure masturbation by Lucas to cash in on the 3D craze. Episode 1: The podrace will look great. Episode 2: The car chase, and some of the Geonosis shots. Episode 3: The opening war and some of Kashyyyk. I suppose he'll throw out that "the movies were always meant to be 3D," or some other BS. I kinda hope that he's releasing these in anticipation of making Episodes 7-9. But they should be set well into the future of the SW universe, and NOT have all the familiar characters we know. Just give us some ideas based on Han & Leia's great-grandkids and a new threat to the new, reformed Jedi Order, which has learned to use the WHOLE Force, and not to completely shun the Dark Side.

    by TV's Frank

    I think that's a smashing idea. Just completely start over from scratch with the prequels. Unfortunately, Lucas would never allow it. It seems like he is willfully blind to the fact that those movies were complete failures. I have tried to understand his perspective on this, but I just end up getting a migraine.

Even re-voice Jar Jar or give him an alien dialect with subtitles. Put back some of the good action stuff that was deleted (Maul fighting Qui-Gon on the ship ramp, longer clone war battle, etc.) TPM as it currently is won't get anyone's ass back in the theaters.

You see, if Lucas said "the movies are to be watched, starting with Ep. 4, 5 and 6, and then 1, 2, 3, yes, this might make sense, but he doesn't. He's said they're to be watched in order, 1-6.

    I fondly remember that period where Star Wars was uncool...

    by SK229

    between about 1984 or '85 and '94/'95 when the rumblings of the prequels began, as well as talk of a new Indiana Jones adventure. Shit, can't believe that was a near ten year period. I'll never forget going into waldenbooks and being fucking floored to see 'Heir to the Empire' on the shelves, which was like the tiniest first little ripple, along with some Star Wars bendy toy shit and the micro machines... little 'probe droids' sent out to test if there was still any interest in Star Wars. I was even more floored that it actually made the bestseller list (wasn't it #1 for a while?). Then new toys starting hitting shelves in late '95, followed by the special edition trailers in '96.... good times. The period of '86 to about '90 was especially bad, though, if you were a Star Wars fan. There was, literally, NOTHING, aside from being a member of the Lucasfilm fan club and looking forward to your new magazine that seemed to come around once a year and encompassed what felt like 8 measly pages (think it was quarterly, though). You see, I was 'too cool' for Star Wars around '86/'87? and, having a Sega Master System, wanted to get the NES like all my friends had. So I sold a SHIT TON of toys in a garage sale to get the money to buy it. I'll never forget my mother literally FORBIDDING me to sell my Star Wars figures. Meanwhile, the Falcon, the transporter, the AT-AT, Dagobah... all gone. About two years later, I got hold of a price guide and couldn't fucking believe what my mother said came true... these were now 'collectibles'. We moved far away from the awesome amazing neighborhood where I spent my first 14 years and it sucked... hardcore... I got back into movies, especially Star Wars, as a kind of escape and that's when Star Wars slowly began creeping back into the national pop cultural conversation again. Imagine being excited about a fucking ENERGIZER commercial because it had the first new filmed footage of Darth Vader in nearly a decade. <p>The fact that we are where we are now, as evidenced by this story, is fucking mind boggling. I never, ever, ever, would have thought Star Wars would get to this point of not just saturation, but irrelevance as a result of saturation... where I'm just indifferent.

    So if Gospel according to Lucas said "Thou shalt watch the odd episodes first" you would do that and spend your waking hours pondering the fact that stuff don't connect in that particular viewing order? The only thing illogical is that Lucas keep tinkering on his work while he's part of a group for the preservation of film. And that people are willing to pay endless sums of money for repackaging of the same thing over and over again while he could make/finance new original and hopefully good projects for us to enjoy instead.

I assume because it's now been slammed down our throats well past 10 years now, my brain just couldn't compute it. What's more mind boggling is what Lucas gets away with, just completing obliberating everything Star Wars stands for with that midichlorian crap, which (RedLetterMedia pointed out) was NEVER brought up again and had ZERO impact to the story or the plot.. WHY?!? <p><p>Growl: "Then why do you want to kill me?"<p><p>"Kill you? I don't want to kill you.. what would I do WITHOUT you? Go back to ripping off mob dealers? No.. no.. NO.

    I only watch the first two movies once in a blue moon. The broken "logic" only comes from the announcement of a trilogy of threes back in 1980. The real reason is that Lucas didn't want the joke to be obvious by sticking "Chapter Eleven!" at the beginning of the crawl.

    Hooray.... Lucas Can Cash in Again

    by ass clown

    Damn you George Lucas. You can't re-release a movie every time there's a slight update in technology. First these go to theaters, then they get re-released in 3D DVD, BluRay. Then, they get released in Digital 3D Direct Download.

    The blu-ray transfer will be a 1996 2K transfer???

    by JDanielP

    LOL ...Not a modern 4K transfer??? Looks like ol' George will want to release them at least 4 times on blu-ray, because there will be the 3D blu-rays, then the eventual 4K transfers, 2D and 3D (as they should be done IN THE FIRST PLACE). Oh, then maybe the ORIGINAL TRILOGY. LOL, what a joke. He could fit it all on the same disks, for cryin' out loud. I'm beginning to have a distaste for all things George Lucas, myself. (Except for his Norman Rockwell collection.)

    You're right, we can all recite these movies line-for-line. I think we, as fans, should go full-on Rocky Horror Picture Show with Star Wars. Yell shit at the screen, throw stuff, stage lightsaber fights in the theater. Make it a whole experience, not just the passive experience of watching a movie we've all seen 100 times

    Midichlorians did not ruin the Force

    by SilentP

    yes, they're a little unnecessary... they were probably just put in there to have a simple way of pointing out to the rest of the cast that Anakin is the most powarfull jedi evar!!!1!! But all they are is a part of the body that allows people to communicate with the Force. I don't see how that really changes anything. If anything, I think the prequels made the Force more interesting, by treating it literally like a force of nature. It's infected with the dark side (which Lucas I think has described as being a cancer on the Force) and needs to expel it from its system. So it uses Anakin to try to restore balance by showing the corrupt, arrogant Jedi the error of their ways... and when the Jedi don't listen to him, the Force callously (through Anakin) purges them all, children included, in order to allow the balance to eventually return. It's actually very old testament god-like too, lol. I think that's pretty awesome, I dunno.

    That 2k transfer thing is EGREGIOUS...

    by SK229

    that is like taking a gigantic shit on the collective heads of not just Star Wars fans, but people who BUY AND GO TO MOVIES... which is to say, NEARLY EVERYONE. Wow... I've always defended Lucas as a visionary (even though I hate the PT), but that is one cocksuckingly assholish move right there. To put it in perspective, movies that will make far, far, far less money on Blu-Ray have had better treatment in preparation for an HD release. Blade Runner is one that I can think of off the top of my head. This is a movie that, literally, 99% of BD player owners will buy, and this fucking douchebag can't spring to have the original elements rescrubbed and given a proper, modern, 4k scan (saw someone else that someone mentioned scanning the vistavision elements at an even higher res)???? Hell, for this release, he should spring for a whole new scanning SYSTEM that scans at above what the eye can even perceive, just as a thank you for the great piles of cash he sits on as the most financially successful filmmaker/producer/movie mogul... hell ANY fucking thing to do with movies, in HISTORY. That's right... I believe only David Geffen has more money coming from entertainment. Wow... just wow. So I guess we can expect multiple blu-ray releases as well. And they wonder why torrents are so popular...

I mean a FULL-ON MANIFESTO explaining some of the bullshit we've been regularly calling them out on over the past year or so. Did anyone 'read' that pos review of Social Network from Harry? I use quotes cause I wouldn't call it reading so much as my eyes and brain being stabbed with an icepick by Harry's stream-of-idiocy writing. For fuck's sake, PROOFREAD... the fact that you don't means you don't give a shit... so why should anyone else? As far as D. Vader, from what I remember, he's not just a fellow TBer, he's a fellow filmmaker... so, you know, he goes out and PUTS HIS MONEY WHERE HIS MOUTH IS and DOES this shit. In this place, that should always be respected.

    Behind D.Vader's Banning...

    by kisskissbangbang

    Beaks in the Sally Menke tribute TB said, after some tasteless remarks were made, that those who made further such remarks would be banned. He also said he'd ban any commenters on this policy, for or against. D.Vader responded against the policy and was banned.<p> While I think Beaks's first judgment was fair (it was a TB about someone who just died; it wasn't a place for the usual shenanigans), banning those who questioned the ban was probably a ban too far. I know, he didn't want the TB to degenerate into an argument about banning, and it was Vader's choice to do something he knew would have consequences; but since, as other pointed out, Vader was a well-liked TBer who generally brought something to the discussion rather than the type of troll who deserves banning, it does seem somewhat unfair. It would be a class act to restore D.Vader, and announce a new general policy of no trolling in obituary TBs, to be argued in the announcement TB or others, just not in one that's a memorial. However that fares, at least now you know what happened.

    Fight the Empire on behalf of D.Vader

    by ShadowHamlet

    I don't post often. But I read a lot of the comments and D.Vader has always caught my attention because he always seemed "reasonable". He didn't seem to insult anyone or act like a fool. I have wondered for ages why this site didn't get more "adult" in terms of being fair and responsible. Post your policies. Enforce them consistently. The arbitrary nature of D.Vader's banning (assuming I understand correctly that he was banned for simply questioning Beaks police on the Sally Menke post, an editor I deeply respect) is just beyond the pale. If anyone really wants to protest you have to do more than NOT post. You need to do the following and post that you did it. Use adblocking software or extensions like adblocker AND/OR NEVER click through on any ad that appears on the site. So when Harry posts his DVD column let him know that you won't click through and support his column until new banning policies are in place and D.Vader is allowed back. Just keep posting that message until the powers than be get the message. Maybe ask for an edit button as well. To D.Vader, if you are reading this, much respect for all your comments and I hope you are back soon.

    JEFFREY JONES GUILTY IN SEX OFFENDER VIOLATION…..

    by ClitorisTongueMassage

    LOS ANGELES — The actor who played the principal in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" will serve three years of probation after pleading guilty to failing to update his sex offender registry info. Los Angeles District Attorney's spokeswoman Jane Robison says Jeffrey Jones entered the plea Tuesday to a felony charge of failing to update his registry information in June. Jones' registration was required because he pleaded no contest in 2003 to employing a 14-year-old boy to pose for sexually explicit photos. The 64-year-old actor is also required to perform 250 hours of community service.<br> <br>Now we know why he wanted to catch Ferris so badly.

    While the Ewoks are VERY hard to get over, my greatest hatred for ROTJ is reserved for the pussy-out last-minute bullshit of resolving the Han-Leia-Luke triangle (a potential source of truly epic drama) by making Leia Luke's twin. <p> My second least-loved part of Jedi? <p> You must embrace the Dark Side! <br> No! <br> Let your hate grow! <br> No! <br> Evil is the grooviest, man! <br> I'm not like you! <br> Seriously!

    Ban this fucker. Good men like D.Vader get the chop, and cunts like this roam free. This insecure weasel is all over some of the other talkbacks insulting various posters that have had - gasp! - the temerity to disagree with him in the past, and he is praising that bald pedo Mr. Beaks. LMFAO - this clown holds grudges against anyone who holds dissenting opinions to his own. He cannot handle even the mildest argument. What a snivelling little nerd, probably kicked in the eye and shat on by everyone he encounters in real life!

    by Dead_Flag_Blues

    I really do. ROTJ was undeniably the weakest of the HOLY TRINITY. Now, with THAT said... it is still LEAPS AND BOUNDS ahead of any of the prequels. The mis-steps and missed opportunities in the travesty known as ROTS, was FAR more crippling than the couple of uninspired plot points in ROTJ. Looking at them OBJECTIVELY, overall...the good in ROTJ far outweighs the "good" in ROTS. No question.

  • Sept. 29, 2010, 12:44 a.m. CST

    I agree CTM

    by Dead_Flag_Blues

    Lucas should have handed the reigns over to a more established film-maker such as Ridley Scott... He should have let someone else write the script as well. He should have had ZERO involvement in ROTJ. Lucas started losing sight of what made Star Wars great in ROTJ, and it continued and got progressively worse in the prequels. <P> Such a shame...

    by Lance2769

    Does this guy ever get tired of milking his Star Wars movies? How many times is the public going to fall for his re-releasing of the same old movies, albeit classics, in theatres and on home video? Lucas is living in the past. He can't direct or produce anything else decent. American Graffiti was great but once he got stuck on the Star Wars bug, the guy lost his marbles. I say we boycott his ass. No worries though...this plan will backfire just after they get the first one in theatres...theres no doubt that there will be different/better technology in a few years.

    The defensiveness of Star Wars fans

    by Anything But Tangerines

    The thousands of dollars and extreme amount of waking hours they've spent supporting their "holy trinity" as one talkbacker deemed it... only to have the franchise exposed as the POORLY WRITTEN AND ACTED CHILDREN'S SPACE FANTASY movies they have always been - this comes as too much of a blow to take in stride, so their last face-saving resort is to lash out at the very same man who basically has owned their lives for decades because of how how "sold out" and with "travesties" like Jar-Jar Binks. IMHO, there is some weird fucking water in the Bay Area that pretty much explains everything.

    "a more established film-maker such as Ridley Scott."

    by Turd_Has_Risen_From_The_Grave

    I'm a fan of Ridley Scott, but that comment proves you HAVE NO FUCKING IDEA what you're talking about. Scott's first film was in '77; yes, he was really more established than Lucas, who had been directing since - gasp! - '71, with three masterpieces under his belt. Or did you think that SW was the only film he'd ever directed? Yep, Ridley was 'more established', all right.<p>LMAO at the 'ad homenin' label - you are the king of that, for sure. I think I accurately described your personality, so my comments hardly qualify. Now try and boot lick Hercules and try to accrue 'support' for your arguments. Everyone knows you are a tool - that music thread proved it. You ran away when everyone turned on you? Fuck sake, man, grow a pair!!

    "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a shit. by JudasPriestly Sep 28th, 2010 08:34:49 PM The prequels need to be remade." I agree. After watching those reviews of the prequels on YouTube (You know, the creepy but brilliant ones) that go for an hour on Ep 1 and 1.5 hours on Ep 2, I can't even watch them anymore. I went from 'Well they're not as good as I was hoping', to "I can't even watch these pieces of shit!" Ep 1 should have been more like Batman Begins. Staring with Anakin much older and any younger scenes done as flashbacks/cut ins. Also, Anakin and Obi Wan should've been made to be like old cowboy mates. So when Alec Guiness says "and he was a good friend"...you actually feel something in that statement. I seriously hope that one day the prequels get remade. The trailer for the video game The FORCE UNLEASHED II has more story, feeling, grit and energy than the prequel trilogy put together! I'd love to see 4,5 and 6 in 3D, but the catch is, Eps 1, 2and 3 have to succeed financially for that to happen, so we all get sucked in to seeing it to ensure we get the ones we ACTUALLY want!

    Right, okay, the best way to not make it warrant is to release the most hated prequal first. That way they don't have to convert the others. And 3D will be dead by then anyway.

    ROTJ '79?

    by Talandir

    ROTJ was not in production in '79. TESB was in production in '79. Lucas didn't even start working on the basic story for Jedi until after Empire came out in '80. And Lynch has stated categorically that he never had any intention or even interest in directing Jedi.

    "Previous Incarnations"...

    by Dead_Flag_Blues

    What does that mean exactly? Think about it for a second... Do any of us truly know ANYTHING about ANYONE on here? <P> Nope. Not at all. <P> I've been here for the better part of 10 years, on and off... Most of the time, i get along with just about everybody here... Other times, not so much. What is certain however, is that i engage some pretty deep and HEATED debates ;-) <P> That is ALWAYS a good thing. (at least to anyone with a thick enough skin...) And if someone mouths off, i call them out on it. Simple as that. Sure, some people can take that the wrong way, and misinterpret it as something else... but hey, such is life. <P> I have many faces and FACETS to my personality, and if i really DO rub you the wrong way... i think it is YOU that should take a good look in the mirror. I expose people for who they truly are, deep down...

The only ones i've seen are the last 4 NBC comedies you mentioned. I do like Parks & Rec, quite a bit. Also just discovered "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" on FX...

    If i ever get to see this version of SW, i will have to be dragged to it. I'm really starting to get fed up with this 3D craze bullshit, and it's barely began. And i'm also burned up about SW, much because of the fans themselves, who think that SF starts and stops at SW and do their damn best to turn every other SF into it's image. I'm so fucking fed up with SW.

    I'm pretty burnt out from Star Wars myself. It's a shame, as that really was the catalyst for my love of cinema when i was a youngin'. My first memories involve the original star wars. It's terribly sad to see how far it's fallen... <P> Shit, to this day though, i'll still argue its merits and weaknesses 'till the cows come home. <P> And i always will ;-)

    These ridiculous discussions. I'll probably wind up seeing all 6 in 3D on the big screen cause I'm a sucker for Star Wars both good and bad. That's what I get for seeing the first one at 2 & 1/2 years old I suppose. <p> <p> Sorry to hear about D. Vader, I totally agree with the kind words about him here on this TB, seems like a good guy. Especially considering how many scumbags there are on here everyday. I think Beaks went too far. <p> <p> Nice TV List Herc, we have similar tastes in TV ;) LOVE Fringe!

    by AsimovLives

    I feel for you. Of course we all will discuss SW until the hills erode away. but the point is that nowdays, SW stoped beign seen as this hallowed cinematic thing and now everybody sees the cracks. I'm actually Ok by that in the sense that the over-hype that SW always had until the prequels anoyed me. This is why i said that much of my bum up of SW is due to the fans.<br><br>But i cannot help but sympathise when you guys are so sad and upset with the way the SW went. I actually don't dislike the prequels much, i mena, the only prequel i really have problems with is THE PHANTOM MENACE, and that's mostly to do with the Jar Jar Bink character and the final space battle which is just a rehash of things seen before and better. I really enjoyed AOTC and ROTS. They don't blowned my mind, but they didn't insulted me either. But then again, i'm pretty zen about SW. I came prety late to the SW movies, already in my mid-teens. Unlike many, it wasn't Sw the movie that help made me into a movie geek, no, that was BLADE RUNNER followed with 2001 and APOCALYPSE NOW. Those are the mvoies that are my favorites and also which inform my tastes and likes about movies, they are the bar for me. So, i don't see all this SW subject so much as a tragedy, as you SW fans guy do, but more of a comedy, if you know what i mean.

    I OWNED you on both of those prior talkbacks, so I have no qualms about that whatsoever. But in any case, I don't hold grudges. On the other hand, YOU addressed ME on this talkback first, which already tells me a whole lot. Your presence on talkbacks means nothing to me at all; only when you called me out did I respond. Then I decided to have some fun with you. Which is the key difference, I think - I'm just having a laugh, but you are seriously aggrieved by my comments.

    by Dead_Flag_Blues

    I would absolutely put the first 2 star wars films up there with 2001, Apocalypse Now, and Blade Runner. All fantastic cinematic achievements. No 2 ways about it. What i don't appreciate, is when people like yourself, attempt to elevate those other 3 as somehow being "above" the original star wars flicks... <P> Judging films based on OBJECTIVE criteria such as: Cinematography, writing, set design/production, score, etc... the first 2 star wars films are just as well made as those other 3 you respect and admire so much. Likewise, the effect they had on the medium is second to none... <P> There is no way to argue that.

    When Saint Peter asks what you did with your life

    by HarryBlackPotter

    ..."Erm, well, I spent my whole life thinking, watching obsessing about Star Wars. Started when I was 6, saw the first one like a million times at the flea-pit and it kinda just snowballed from their. Then I got onto the toys and the books...and let's not even talk about the original Marvel comics. Then came Empire. My life was well and truly owned by Lucas. It was like the devil was waiting for me in the lobby and said he would give me more Star Wars than I could ever handle or even have time to enjoy, and in return he would want my soul. No problem my bearded Master. More toys in between, then came ROTJ. Even though it had teddy bears in it, it was still all kinds of awesome." "So what about the prequels and the cartoons and the dvd's and blu rays and 3D conversions? Did you get hooked up on that Jedi smack too?" "Yup. Slurped it all down like a hungry porn queen. Shameful but I just couldn't help it." "You do realise you spent the years 1977 to 2067 doing NOTHING with your life." "You mean being a Star Wars fan was a bad thing? It's not like I was a Trekie or anything. Or went to Bablyon 5 conventions." "True. Maybe Star Wars isn't so bad. And Empire is the best film ever made. Ok sonny, welcome to heaven. Oh, and here's God to meet you." "He looks just like Sebastian Shaw!!!!"

    People who dismiss Star Wars (at leat, the ORIGINAL ones...) as "kid's films", really has no idea what they're talking about. I loved them as a kid, and i still do. I actually have a much DEEPER appreciation for them now, as my knowledge of film as grown exponentially since i was a child... There are plenty of films i loved as a kid, that i watch now, going "what the hell did i see in THAT?!?" <P> However, certain films like the original star wars trilogy, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Alien, Close Encounters, etc... still hold up today, as an adult, because they are GOOD FUCKING MOVIES. There are MANY things from the OT that i missed as a youngling, that i can now appreciate as an adult. <P> So fuck that "it's just for kids" argument. Holds no weight whatsoever...

    Walter is the BEST! Mr. Jones is fascinating ;) The Dawson's Creek guy's character only gets better AND I really like Anna Torv. I've heard a lot of crap on different comments boards that she's bad, etc. I disagree, I think it's just the nature of her character. Hope she keeps growing on you. To my mind Fringe just gets better and better with every new episode. <p> <p> The Star Wars talkbacks are always soooo entertaining! I do not understand why ANYONE makes broad generalizations about anyone else on here.That goes for everyone honestly. I enjoy fairy tales BTW, especially in space! :) Empire will always be my favorite movie of all time, just the way of things. However I love all kinds of science fiction movies like 2001, Blade Runner, Primer, District 9, Moon, etc. That's the great thing about the genre of science fiction, it is SO vast.

    Dead Flag...

    by NeverTalksBack

    Heh, yeah well, I was being diplomatic I guess. I like a good amount in AOTC & ROTS... but not anything like l LOVE ANH & ESB. It's complicated, it's a Star Wars debate so it's always complicated. I think there is some AMAZING moments in ROTS. I think there is a lot of crap as well. <p> <p>As we all know ROTJ is the weakest of the OT. I personally love the Throne room Duel so much, It is the crescendo of the whole saga and quite beautiful and emotional. I love the opening in Jabba's palace, the speederbike chase, the space battle and so on. And I don't hate Ewoks, I do cringe whenever the emperor talks about his "best troops" though heh. But there is a lot of boring crap in the middle <p> <p> I really do think ROTS has some amazing scenes, like the manipulation of Anakin with the Darth Plagus story or the moment when Anakin and Padme are intercut as he makes his last bad decision before running off to Palpatine. I think the final Duel has some great moments, especially their initial argument, but of course Lucas goes WAY overboard with it. The ending highground crap annoys me a lot though, his NAME is Skywalker! However I love the opening space battle and some of the humor in the beginning, but again, there is a lot of crap as well, very uneven. <p> <p> OK yeah, I probably do like ROTJ more... but how much does notalgia play in that? Hmm

    Nevertalksback...

    by Dead_Flag_Blues

    Awesome post :-) <P> I completely agree on just about each and every one of your points. Agreed on the 2 good scenes from ROTS as well... The Darth Plagous tale in the Opera House, and the silent-looking-out-at-the-horizon scene with Anakin and Padme. The only 2 scenes in that film with any artistic merit or integrity... <P> I think the main reason for the 2nd scene being so good, was that it featured none of Lucas' HORRID prequel dialogue. And good 'ol Johnny boy's music playing ever so beautifully, without any dialogue or sound effects to get in the way... <P> So i'm glad that after thinking about it for a moment, you realized that you did, in fact, like ROTJ more. ;-) <P> But i disagree with you on that last point you made. I really don't think "nostalgia" has anything do with it. <P> I mean honestly, as a kid, i actually fancied the ewoks lol. I remember having all the damn action figures from the 3 films, including EWOKS! I had absolutely no problem, whatsoever with them... However, the older i got, as i revisited the films, i found myself disliking them more and more, and slowly became very anti-ewok. I don't absolutely LOATHE them like many unobjective fanboys do... but i really think it was a major mis-step from Mr. Lucas, both in concept, and execution. <P> So i really don't think it's blind nostalgia that elevates these beloved films. I think that's a silly, simplistic "card" the prequel defenders play when they have no other argument... I don't buy it for one second. <P> But anyway, nice post man. You just simply cannot deny the power and emotion of the Throne Room scene, the fantastic speeder bike chase, the crazy-cool Jabba sequence, the beautiful score, and that absolutely EPIC space battle during the film's climax... I mean, that was done in 1983 for godsake! Fucking impressive. <P> Most, impressive...

    1) This stupid 3d fad will be LONG over by the time the first prequel would be released 2) If they are depending on the success of that to convert the others, than they'll NEVER happen. Starting with the SHITTIEST movie, in a shitty format, that no one likes, or will pay to see again, not the strongest move. 3) As a life long fan (since I saw Star Wars at age 6 in the theater) I'm so over Lucas's hack bullshit. How many DECADES can you keep beating the same dead horse, and tricking people to waste money on the same FUCKING films? I FINALLY have the OT on DVD, and would consider purchasing the UNALTERED OT on Blu-ray (maybe, depending on quality, 5.1 etc), but beyond that, I've vowed to never spend another dime on George Lucas and his continual quest to rape my childhood for ANOTHER buck. It's way beyond sad and pathetic at this point. Come up with a new idea fer christsake.

    Perfect opportunity to make TPM a better film

    by sapno_krei

    GL likes to slip in unannounced changes with each new format release. If he wants people to go watch the first (and arguably, least well-received) SW film in theaters again, he'd better make some changes. TPM is the film most deserving of a Special Edition, and GL has had more than enough time to re-imagine it. I don't expect huge changes, but rather deletions a la the Phantom Edit which was the big hullabaloo a few years back.

    I think you misunderstood somewhat the point i was making. I ceertainly wasn't making a pissing contest about the merits of SW against Blade Runner, Apocalypse now and 2001. but since you veered the conversation that way, it's undeniable that Blad eRunner, Apoc now and 2001 have a thematic profoundity about them that doesn't exist in SW. OK, i'm just busting your balls, i'm just kidding, no harm done. Maybe i should reinterate my point i made abov,e which is, for me, Sw is not the big thing that most of you, like yourself, put it up to be. It just isn't. I didn't saw the movies in my childhood years or early teens. Sw was not the movie that blown my mind. Blade Runner, Apoc Now and 2001 were. Like everybody here, i had fun watching the Sw movies, and i can discuss those movies and it's universe til the end of days and beyond, because it is as fun to talk about those movies as it is to watch them, maybe even more so. That was the point i was making, friend. I gues si just presented it poorly in my previous post, for which i appologise.

    The golden year of the special editions. They looked good on the big screen with 'improved' fx. Made us all a bit Star Wars nostalgic and proud of our geek heritage.

    His newest move of Re-re-releasing the originals (this time in 3d!) doesn't surprise me. It bores me. I expect it of him. I expect him to keep milking the idea. It is what his career has been for a long time. That's OK. I'm not mad anymore. My current thoughts on star wars is basically that hey I've got the original trilogy, that is enough. If I want more star wars I'll watch the originals in plain boring 2d. Thanks but no thanks. No sale on the 3d, or the inevitable smell-o-vision versions when they come out. Anyway that's how I feel about the matter.

    I've seen scenes from a New Hope in 3-D

    by Ghostpirate

    ... at Showest several years ago. Lucas and Cameron were there to introduce the 3-D tech and tell the theater owners to go digital. He announced then that the films would be out eventually in 3-D. Peter Jackson announced (via a taped message) that LOTR would also be released in 3-D in cinemas. They then played the first several minutes of Star Wars: A New Hope in 3-D for us. The opening crawl alone looked incredible. The lasers seemed to fly all over the room when the stormtroopers board the rebel ship. It was 3-D done right. Then they played a montage of LOTR scenes, Star Wars and other famous films including Wizard of Oz, all converted to 3-D. Like I said, it was all done right. They took their time for these and all of it was great. I'm looking forward to seeing them in theaters. I just wish I didn't have to sit through the Episodes 1-3.

Its just that I'm not sure that You I or Hollywood are using it to make anything better than has gone before ...So I look at Lucas - the only man on earth with more toys than Jim Cameron and ask is that the best you can do with it?

    Why waste our time? Those of us who grew up in the 80s are already in our 30's and 40's. By the time he decides to make more live action we'll be pushing 50 and Lucas may be long gone. He's given up on the live action tv so why not transform it into 2 new live action movies showing the time between Ep 3 and 4. Do them in 3d and finally show us why we fucking tuned into the prequels anyway - to see an awesome Vader show his skills and hunt down Jedi.

But who's to say they would have been any better than the prequels, given George's current 'I've-got-my-head-up-my-own-asshole-and-I'm-not-going-to-listen-to-anybody-else-la-la-la-I-can't-hear-you!' attitude?

    Exactly. The Lucas who gave us the original trilogy, the one NOT surrounded with yes-men, the one with enough fucking humility to let a more capable hand do the jobs he can't do very well, like WRITE THE FUCKING SCREENPLAY, or DIRECT THE FUCKING MOVIE, is Looooong gone. We'd have gotten more horrible and dated 3P0 puns and hayden fucking christiansen as Anakin's ghost helping Luke out, and fuckin' DEFINITELY a recasted Han and Leia. I mean, seriously. Harrison Ford wouldn't touch that shit with a 90 foot pole, and Carrie Fisher NOW? *shudder* That woman looks like she fought a bear for 3 days and WON. I hope you understand why that's worse than her losing.

    I do understand and completely agree. I wouldn't call myself a SW geek, but I was there in the queue in '77 and also in '99, and the contrast between the two couldn't have been more disappointing. I agree that Lucas probably will never make the third trilogy and if he did, it would be just as you pointed out. I'd like to think Lucas had enough humility to say to other filmmakers, 'OK, here's the world I created. I'm done with it. It's yours. Tell your own stories.' Would never fucking happen, my friend. Not only is he milking the cow dry, he's fucking murdering it at the same time.<br> All of these are valid points others have made countless times before, but as a fan of the series, it fucking irritates me.

    Ridley Scott for ROTJ?

    by Robert_G_Durrant

    "Yeah, and Ridley Scott directed this little flick called... by Dead_Flag_Blues Sep 29th, 2010 01:05:51 AM ALIEN. Oh, and BLADE RUNNER too. Ever heard of that one? Both of those were released BEFORE ROTJ came out." First time TBer here, just wanted to respond to the above! Not sure if anyone has already mentioned this, but Blade Runner was a big critical and commercial failure upon its initial release in 1982. It was way over budget and didn't manage to break even. That probably would've counted against ol' Ridley getting the ROTJ gig. I can't remember the exact figures for Blade Runner, but I did a school project on it way back when which is how I know they were pretty bad!

    Ok, here's a question regarding AICN...

    by SK229

    I wasn't going to post anymore in protest, but obviously many don't give a shit when it's about D. Vader, so how about this - What would it take, at this point, to create a viable alternative to AICN? I'll probably get banned for using their bandwidth to discuss it, but seriously... most of their 'scoops' come from other sites, if not ALL of them. The 'reviews' from the head cheese are totally incoherent at this point, the DVD column is laughable, and everything else is practically ignored because I think everyone has realized most of the writers on this site have the thinnest skin imaginable and not only do they not give a shit when you question what they're doing, they openly MOCK such criticism and speak even more arrogantly than before. Listen fuckwits... DO NOT BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU. Hopefully soon, forces will mobilize to provide some type of alternative. To this day, I have not figured out why another site, as popular, has not stolen the thunder from AICN. It SHOULD be like taking candy from a baby... and the most IMPORTANT thing to emulate is the TB's. The second most important thing is a simple enough layout on the landing page. And the third thing is PLENTY AND VARIED opportunities for discussion. An example of genius on this site is the Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day. When you have no more 'news' to report that doesn't come from somewhere else, well... people are just as happy to discuss their favorite classics.<p>Regarding getting a good scoop, those days might be dead, but can't we get a site that has an 'edit' button, some NEW capabilities for communication (I mean, the TB's are the genius of this site, as well as the home page layout), AND has mods and writers that actually can take criticism in a level headed way? You can always tell when criticism is unwarranted because there will be at least 5 or 6 reasonable people defending Harry or whomever it is. But that's no longer the case. He completely ignores all criticism of his writing, of the direction of the site, of ignoring ACTUAL bits of news that people sent in, including entire wrap-ups of festivals people might be interested in hearing about. So what gives, guys? How is it that nobody has created a viable alternative?

  • Sept. 29, 2010, 10:40 a.m. CST

    Who cares?

    by Rob0729

    George Lucas won't be happy until he totally ruins the first three movies with all these technology upgrades. We have seen with movies like Clash of the Titans that 2D movies shot without the intention of being converted to 3D are friggin ruined in the 3D transfer process. Is there any hope of Star Wars 3D faring any better?<br><br> Give me original prints of the movies on Blu Ray and I think I am done shelling money out on this series. Would rather see another 2D release on the big screen rather than 3D versions.

    Bicycle Sharer - Slashfilm, great site!

    by SK229

    I just started going there not that long ago when they posted something about that short film 'The Raven'. I actually emailed one of the writers there about how and why that short film seemed to travel across every fucking blog on the internet in a week (it was awesome, don't get me wrong, but it felt like they had a publicist). He's a level headed guy named Peter Sciretta and the dude responded within like a day. Fat chance of that happening here. However, it has one of those by-the-numbers comments systems that don't lend themselves to the type of discussion found here. Like I said, this design, as simplistic as it may seem, is exactly what engenders this type of intense discussion. I see 50 pages of comments sometimes and I'm like... fuck it, who's even going to click through and read all this shit? Also, those sites have the same headline system where it's divided with a blue bar and then all this other crap at the bottom, plus a blurb... SIMPLE HEADLINES. That's what makes AICN work and why nobody else has come close. But I still think you could take this and tweak it a bit.

    I have a bad feeling about this!

    by slave to the one

    And so should Lucas! I mean come one, they are shooting themselves in the foot by releasing the craptacular prequels in 3D first. They will only release the other movies in 3D if the receipts from the Phantom Menace warrant it? I think the world at large knows by now to stay away from the antics of Jar Jar and poodoo! If you ask me, the money would be well spent on taking the time to meticulously restore the original, unaltered, vastly superior trilogy, you know the one where HAN SHOOTS FIRST! Put that shit on Blu Ray, I'm sure uncle George will make his money back 100 fold on that! I'll be 36 by the time Jedi hits 3D, ticket prices will be $50 a pop!

    Imagine If Lucas Was As Cool As He Seems To Think He Is

    by LaserPants

    He would realize any talent or imagination he had has long since dried up and retire. He would realize that the prequels were a DISASTER (with the exception of ROTS which was the only one that felt like a Star Wars movie) and stop trying to re-sell them to people in new packaging (a 3D turd is still a turd, George). Finally, he would use his VAST FORTUNE to produce new, exciting, up-and-coming filmmakers who were inspired by him when he didn't suck. But Lucas isn't cool. At all. He is the anti-matter of cool. He's a washed up hack sitting on a bed of trillions, always needing more. He should stop, right now, put it all to bed and/or give it to people who actually care (he clearly doesn't) and let them carry the Star Wars legend into the future on a bedrock of GOOD STORYTELLING, not hackneyed, obvious, cash-grab gimmicks.

  • Sept. 29, 2010, 11:46 a.m. CST

    WHY THIS IS GREAT:

    by dacanesta

    because if you have ever read any interviews with Lucas he categorically states that the 'new' trilogy is better than the old one. Why? Coz they made more money. I then made the obvious point that that makes Titanic the best movie of all time etc. Head of the site i wrote on went 'well, yep....its a films job to make money'!!! AND SO! ANYWAY! THIS will show Lucas that the films WE all love are the OT and it will be done on his terms.....MONEY!!! So....if you have nowt else better to do, like me and my face, then boycott ALL THREE of the woeful PT (yes, that includes the TERRIBLE part III) and go and see the latter 3, just for the petty sake of it. Then beardy wont have any arguments. Though he probably will.

    by LaserPants

    Boycott ALL of them, and watch the originals at home since everybody already owns them and nobody needs to pay AGAIN to see a movie they own, maybe even bought more than once, and have watched hundreds and hundreds of times. I LOVE the OT, and I have NO DESIRE AT ALL to see them in 3D.

    by skydemon

    I'm not going to waste my time watching that sack of S#!t phantom menace, once was enough. So if many others feel the same way, guess the original trilogy won't be converted. And you KNOW, Lucas will have to change up some scenes along the way to 3-D

I don't buy this shit that It can't be done for "whatever" reason. Bullshit! I want to feel again every morsel of how it was to be 12 years old enjoying some kick ass Star Wars goodness. Don't fuck with them, just clean up the originals, transfer them to Blu, and I'm good. There, had my rant. Thank you.

The fountain is pretty cool. <p>On weekdays, you can also go inside the lobby of Lucasfilm. There are props from the movies (including Darth Vader and Boba Fett costumes) and some of the awards that the films have won (including the golden popcorn MTV awards). </p><p>You can also walk around outside of the buildings. There is a Starbucks on the campus with a patio that provides a fantastic view of San Francisco -- including the main dome of the Palace of Fine Arts.</p><p>Lucasfilm is located at the Presidio on the banks of the Golden Gate Bridge. It is a former military base now leased for a hundred years by George Lucas for Lucasfilm, ILM, THX, etc... There are plenty of other companies there....and Walt Disney just opened a museum in the Presidio too! It is definitely worth the trip!</p>

    SpecialEdition does not exist in this dojo

    by Cobra--Kai

    This is prescient timing because I just watched STAR WARS (well, the first half of it) for the first time in a few years last sunday.<p> And someone above made a comment about the newly added special edition CGI effects needing updating... I don't know if they were joking but in fact - THEY DO.<p> That's one of the main things I took away from the viewing - that those fx are now the weaker ones in the film. There's a shot where you see Stormtroopers on Tatooine picking around by the Droid's escape pod - and the CGI lizard mount in the background looks terrible by todays CG standards.<p> Same again when Han chases the stormtroopers round a corner in the Death Star to reveal a chamber filled with dozens of stormtroopers - it looks piss poor.<p> They might have been cutting edge additions when they were released (1997?) but now the Special Edition extra scenes could really use a 'polish'... on Blu Ray I imagine the dodgy fx will stand out even more.

All the moves are out, I can watch them any time I want. I even have those illicit 16x9 DVDs of the (original) Original Trilogy converted from the laser discs.

    by only1

    several years ago I think it was Harry himself who mentioned seeing some 3D Star Wars footage that was done to help get theater owners to buy into the new 3D... and it was said back then they were going to be converting all the flicks to 3D. It took a backseat to the tv shows but it was never cancelled. And that 10-20 minute clip was said to be amazing. Lucas may be a turd but he is also a genius knowing how to milk the fandom. He will make damn sure this conversion is one of the best conversions, if not best 3D films, ever. And everyone saying they won't see it is lying out their asses. They're the same fools who said they weren't seeing AOTC after TPM... but did. And they did it again with ROTS. They'll go, they'll pay then they'll bitch about Lucas. BTW... what's with Herc being so very active in this talkback but not commenting on D Vader. You know damn well they're trading emails being the scenes

That Maul fight was pretty fucking awesome on the big screen and the pod race was cool, would like to see the full on extended version of that scene and they can remove all the shit of Jedi's running extremely fast or irritating battle droids attacking slightly more irritating Gungans. <p> Anyway, it was the closest in look and feel to the OT than any of the other prequels.

    Ninety (90) days, it is, gentlemen!!!

    by The Bicycle Sharer

    I'm gonna repost this in a few other talkbacks. Please be kind enough to help me out.<p>In honor of D.Vader and in response to Harry Knowles's email in which Harry threatened to permanently ban D. Vader if **WE** became annoying in our protests ("Chris will have a 90 day ban, unless he and his friends get annoying, in which case his ban will become perm.") Ain't it cool, guys? Threatening to ban someone for a protest initiated by OTHERS? And remember - this is from the fat liberal protest-worshiping toad himself! Guess "peace" and "love" and "power to the people" ain't exactly all that when it's directed at the capricious whims of you, your contributors and your site.<p>For purposes of solidarity and protest, I'm taking Ain't It Cool out of my drop down menu, set my Outlook Reminder, and am avoiding this site for ninety (90) days - I'll return 12/28/10. If Vader's back, cool. If not, well, like others have said, there are plenty of OTHER sites to get this shit from. The one redeeming grace of this site has been the talkbacks and the people (smart, stupid, crazy, fun, insane, wild, angry people) in the talkbacks. But it looks like Harry et al. have decided to behave in a dictatorial and willfully impulsive manner, alienating many talkbackers. I'm done. See you in ninety!

    GETTING AROUND AICN IP BAN

    by AICN_Bans_Are_A_Joke_Heres_How_You_Get_Around_Them

    In your browser type in 192.168.1.1(if not reset your router) and you will get a username and password prompt. For the username (for most linksys routers) is admin and the password is admin (if not reset your router and if that doesnt work consult your manual). Ok now your in. Please click on MAC Address Clone in the setup tab. Alright now click enable if its not already enabled. Now you can change all the numbers for your mac address! Change all the numbers in the mac address (it may give you errors like out of range, to fix this only use numbers 1-9 and letters a-f) to different things! But before you click save settings i most warn you. You will still have access to your router but your internet will be disabled until you successfully complete the next step! now click Save Settings and wait, It may take awhile. After it says its completed or if the page refreshed click the Status tab. Your IP and mac and everything will be 0.0.0.0 and your internet will be disabled. Next go to your router and unplug it and unplug the modem too! When they are both off wait 1 minute and plug them back in. Wait for them to both get initialized and ready and go back to your computer. Your computer should now be internet connection enabled again with an entirely new ip address

    THE_CHOPPAH SAVED MY LIFE

    I was being hunted by alien big-game hunters and a man came out of the jungle to save me. With arms whirling like windmills he filled the air with his fists. In a hornet's nest of five-digit pain the alien hunter retreated, but was no match for my handsome savior's speed and maniacal efficiency. Only when he stood over the hideous thing's mutilated corpse did I understand that this man was the very legend himself, "You've been chopped." He said, and without looking back disappeared back into the jungle from whence he had come.

    Interesting tidbit dropped about bluray release...

    by Dan Halen

    Star Wars fans were treated to a glimpse of bonus material, in the form of a long-lost deleted scene from Return of the Jedi. The scene has long been talked about online -- a sequence that depicts Luke Skywalker assembling his new, green-bladed lightsaber prior to infiltrating Jabba the Hutt's palace. After completing the Jedi weapon, Luke stashes it in R2-D2's dome. What makes the Jedi deleted clip so remarkable is that it made it all the way to postproduction before it was cut, so it is a rare example of a cut scene with completed visual effects and music. Actor Mark Hamill came out to describe the scene, remarking that once again his original introduction in a Star Wars film was cut out (his Anchorhead introduction was, of course, cut from A New Hope). Luke's intro is purposely played as ominous, with his face cowled in shadows and his intentions unclear."I had the black cloak, the glove, and I thought, wow, this time around I get to be the antagonist. Little did I know I was predicting the path of the prequels," said Hamill, noting the similarities to Luke in this scene and Anakin Skywalker's appearance.

    It was stated years ago that the reason the films were scanned at only 2K is because a 4K scan was TOO MUCH DETAIL...meaning, you started seeing all the flaws in the original composites, and the visual FX work of the time...they said the film started looking cheesy. So please stop complaining, as the films look fine at 2K, which is all you losers need with your 36 inch HDTV you can barely afford...you wont notice the difference.

    a 4K scan is appropriate because it brings out more detail... it doesn't matter if you're watching it on a 46 inch screen, you will notice the extra detail. star wars in 2K is fine because of the age of the prints...those prints fall apart with a 4K scan because you start seeing the flaws in the old technology with the film and with the visual FX...modern films can withstand a 4K scan and greatly benefit from it. it's not that you wont notice the detail in 1920x1080, you will, but you'll notice TOO MUCH detail which shows the flaws of the aged technology. that's why 4K isn't being done for Star Wars.

    Oh who the fuck

    by A G

    is going to go pay to see the prequels again just to watch them in 3D? Most of the prequel special effects are terrible anyway. They will flop hard and as a result Lucas will be hesitant to put the originals in 3D. That being said, adding 3D to the original trilogy will rob them of their charm. Only certain scenes will benefit like Degobah and the space battles. But seriously, Anakin and Padme's love scenes - IN GLORIOUS 3D. I'm...there?

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 12:45 a.m. CST

    Wow

    by DeadAtRecess

    I can't wait to see Jar Jar in 3D! Best character in all of Star Wars! So awesome and well thought out. His dialogue is fantastic and he really adds a lot to the story. And young Anakin was great too! Especially the scenes where he yelled "Yippee!" or not-awkwardly asked about midichlorians. And Watto! Man i can't wait to see Watto in 3D because that's really gonna add a nice flair to the already awesome Phantom Menace. And the battle droids saying classic lines like "Roger Roger"! Or those asian alien guys from the trade federation. And that tripped out C3P0 with no skin! Or when Obi-Wan delivers the BEST, and I mean THE BEST Obi-Wan line ever..."Master, what's a Bongo?". TPM is gonna be tight! It's so not gonna be EVEN GAYER IN 3D.

    I wish D. Vader was here.

    by 11ZOMBIES

    I came to AICN today to find this post, to read his level headed comments about this news. In place of that I have found torment, despair, and much gnashing of teeth(and also some very entertaining posts). I have read AICN since before the release of TPM, and have counted on this site for movie news time and time again. D. Vader has long been a voice of reason, a calm in the storm, a model of the talkbackers we all should be. Say what you will of his opinions, say what you will about "taking your punishment". In the end, it is a shame that one of us- those who love film, those who dedicate even a small amount of time commenting on stories that ultimately have little to do with our everyday lives, those who just want to express our thoughts on what this site has to offer- is banned for simply expressing a thought on how a simple website is operated. There are many things that are important in this world, and a well expressed opinion is not the lesser of those things. I do not post in the talkbacks often, even though I have had an account for years. However, if D. Vader is permanently banned I must say that this site will be lesser for it. Ban me if you like for going off topic. I know this isn't an obit, and I know I am going off topic. In the wasteland known as the internet, there are fewer and fewer voices of reason. D. Vader has always been one of those voices. I want to continue enjoying this website. I want to continue having it as one of my top bookmarks. However, if simply having an opinion which deviates from those who run the site is reason enough to ban a valuable user from from said site, then I cannot continue to point my browser toward that website. Reinstate D. Vader AICN. He remains a valiant contributor to what you have here, regardless of your actions. We should all aspire to be that kind of talkbacker- respectful, thoughtful, courteous, and straight forward. Do the right thing guys. This isn't about causing trouble or bringing the site down. It's about an open discourse, a discussion, a meeting of the minds. After all, isn't that what the internet is all about? I've been coming to this site for movie news for years now. Please show me that this site is about what we all collectively love- and not about what I think is fair to say that we all collectively hate. LONG LIVE D. VADER.

    Fuck Star Wars. It died a while ago. Let it stay dead.

    by AllPowerfulWizardOfOz

    Lucas killed it. I grew up with Star Wars. I saw the first one in the theater with my father in 1977. I was a rabid fan. I had all the toys. I dreamt about the back story. Then one day my dream was going to come true. <BR> <BR> Enter The Phantom Menace. I remember going to see that horrible video game movie Wing Commander just so I could see the trailer for the new installment of Star Wars and the glorious story I expected to unfold of Skywalkers demise into darkness turning into Vader. Me and my best friend had never been so excited about a movie. <BR> <BR> We had a room rented out at the Senator for opening show at midnight in the balcony. The line stretched around the block for what seemed like a mile. The excitement building in the crowd. The partying. As we made our way into the theater and grown men took their seats some wept. <BR> <BR> The lights dimmed in the Senator after a short speech from the movie owner and the place went wild. 21st century logo pops up, screaming. The Lucas logo popped up and again insanity. Then the Star Wars music pandemonium. And that was the last of that with the exception of a few hoots and hollers when Kenobi and the droids made their appearance. <BR> <BR> As the movie let out grown men were not ecstatic. There was a quiet shuffle and mumbling and no one was smiling. Everyone who had pinned their hopes that Lucas would deliver a suspense filled dark chapter in the Star Wars saga that was geared towards those of us who had grown up with Star Wars were let down. Crushed. The movie as we all knew was horrible. <BR> <BR> Attack of The Clones. Same thing. <BR> <BR> Revenge of the Sith had potential but the way the scenes were handled between Skywalker and Padme were just so wooden and felt so forced. <BR> <BR> In the end Lucas ruined his movies by making a CGI cartoon with wooden performances and a terrible story. He turned what was so awesome into total shit. There was no more vibe. He sucked it up. It truly looked more like a money grab then anything that had a heart or spirit. He turned Vader into a cry baby. And yes I know about the Force Unleashed back story. Sure that's cool but does not make up for the horrible prequels or shitty touch ups the his classics. <BR> <BR> Sorry for me Star Wars is dead.

    by Mundungus

    ... 'cuz that's the good one. Get it? The others have to stay outside because they're nothing special, but Empire is a celebrity like Billy Dee Williams or Barbra Streisand. <p>...Like at a fancy restaurant where they have the snooty guy up front to keep the riff-raff out. Ep IV would be Chevy Chase and might tip his way to a drafty three seat table in the bar room, but what will he do when Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd show up and have dates with them? They might squeeze in four at that shitty table, but Aykroyd isn't just gonna stand there like an asshole. And Murray knows he only has to act as if he likes Chase for one minute because Murray is Close Encounters and couldn't give a fuck, there's a table opening up.

    Predators got a free pass because the movie didn't matter to people. The original Predator, while a fun film, doesn't have one millionth of the devoted fans that Star Wars has/had. If a Star Wars film doesn't live up to the original and unaltered trilogy you can totally expect it to be shat upon. Predators...come on.

    Despite the prequels...

    by rbatty024

    I still love the original trilogy. Sure, the prequels have dampened my excitement for the Star Wars franchise (from video games to comic books), but I still love the first three films. It's been long enough that I can forget about Episodes 1-3 and just enjoy the originals without thinking of Hayden Christiansen.

    My email to Harry

    by vadakinX

    If I get banned you know why :P <p> It reads as follows: <p> Harry, <p> I felt like I should get in touch with you and talk about the protest currently going on at the AICN talkbacks. From the responses you've made on talkbacks I know you find it annoying and frustrating and since I'm responsible for starting the protest I thought it might be a good idea to explain my feelings on the matter and why it's all happening and hope for a solution. <p> I don't know if you are aware of the full circumstances of the D.Vader ban, given that the posts have been made available I'm sure you have seen them but essentially what happened is D.Vader learned a couple of people had been banned and in the Sally Menke obituary thread he asked if this was the case. Beaks had written a message asking for no off topic remarks and D.Vader, seeing his mistake, created another post. admitting to that mistake, having not read Beak's message before he made his initial report. <p> Let me make one thing clear. D.Vader has nothing to do with the protest. It wasn't his idea, I haven't been in contact with him so if you feel like punishing people with permanent bans, let it be the people doing the protesting, not him. D.Vader made an honest mistake and he owned up to it. He was suspended for that. Contrary to what you've posted in talkbacks, he wasn't abandoning all manners and decency, he was respectful, not just in this incident but in the years he's been posting on AICN. I don't believe you were being vindictive in your comments about him and that you just assumed he was another asshole talkbacker with a big mouth, which is understandable given the usual vile comments that tends to come out in obituaries (the Michael Jackson talkback comes to mind). <p> But just so you understand why people were upset, D.Vader was not being disrespectful to the AICN staff or Sally Menke when he posted. He asked a question, then saw what Beaks wrote and realised he had made a mistake. That's why people are so upset. D.Vader has long been considered to be one of the most respectful and intelligent talkbackers to post on the site and the feeling was if he could get banned for an honest mistake that he took responsibility for, yet the spam posts from shoe sellers and 40 year old men pretending to be teenage girls go unpunished for the most part, what's the standard? <p> So that's where we are coming from. For me it was never about the D.Vader ban, it's about the need for some sort of consistency in talkback moderation. I'm sure we both agree that one of the things that makes the AICN talkbacks special is the level of crazy shit that talkbackers have to say and nobody wants to lose that. But I also understand that the staff at AICN are busy people and don't have the time to monitor the talkbacks and delete spam posts and anything that crosses the line (wherever that line is and in whatever context) on a regular basis. This is why I have suggested on the talkbacks that there should be a small group of people designated to monitor talkbacks. Whether or not this would work I don't know but it's an idea I'd like to put forward for your consideration. There are other things like having an Edit button available for the first 5 minutes after posting that could be worthwhile though you would know better than me if that's even possible on the talkback system as it exists. <p> When I started the protest I did ask that obituary threads be kept out of it because I agree that they should be for honouring those who have passed on and not for engaging in the politics of the site or random chat. Unfortunately it's becoming one of those AICN memes being taken on by the shit-talking assholes who have no concept of what we were trying to do and just think it's funny and for that I apologise. I'm a screenwriter myself but I have a real interest in editing and the passing of Ms. Menke saddened me greatly. I was a great admirer of her work and I understand initial anger you may have felt at the protest, thinking it was over the banning of some loudmouth with no respect. I hope that after reading this (unless you've deleted it) you will understand that in the case of D.Vader it was an honest mistake and he has nothing to do with the protest which was sparked by the respect that talkbackers had for him as a civil and constructive debater in talkbacks for the last number of years. <p> I am putting my own head on the chopping block by admitting to starting the protest and I will be signing this email with my talkbacker name so um...please don't ban me? :P <p> Anyways I just wanted to give you a sense of why we started the protest and I hope you understand that, from my point of view at least, it was about what we felt was an unjust ban of a talkbacker who has never been someone to stir shit in the talkbacks and has always sought to engage in healthy debate and conversation. I had hoped that you would be willing to engage with us and discuss the matter of the talkbacks in general but again, I understand how busy you are. But I hope this letter will at least give you a perspective on our feelings on the matter and why we have taken the action we have. <p> I want to thank you for reading this (assuming you have...I write too much), I want to apologise for any continued disrespect being shown on this matter by any talkbacker, especially in the obituary threads and regardless of your feelings now on the matter, I wish to assure you that it was never my intent to be disrespectful. I'm a firm believer in free speech but also discretion and the notion of peaceful protests. <p> Sincerely, <p> vadakinX
