My family used to have the original trilogy on VHS, not sure what happened to it. I wish I still had it, even though the picture quality would be horrible compared to the DVD/Blu-Ray copies it'd be nice to see the way they were when originally released.

Speaking of Yoda, does anyone else think the new SW Nestea Brisk commercial is epically lame for the fact they drop the stop-motion and went all CG?

Of course, how else would Vader tell Luke who he is during the big Cloud City Pod Race at the end of Empire Strikes Back(spoilers?)?

The scene in Dagobah where Luke fights fake-Vader will be replaced with Luke talking to time traveling CGI-Jake-Lloyd, who tells him everything.

You know what'd be rad? Just scrap Episodes 1-3 and instead just have 3 movies about how awesome Rogue Squadron is.

Fist scene of the first movie will just be Wedge being a boss and blowing up Gungans in space. Sadly since Lucas ruins even good stuff during the scene the soundtrack will be Wolfpack Party by the Pack.

I believe the answer is that nerds like to complain about things

One is that it alters Han's characterization somewhat.

Two is that the alteration itself is entirely ridiculous, as it either means that Han is possessing of super-human reflexes to dodge a point blank shot, or Greedo is a hilariously inept marksman to not be able to hit a man across the table who (according to the reworked scene) didn't see it coming.

Three is just that the Han/Greedo change is sort of the iconic example of everything that has been changed about the original trilogy since Lucas started playing with everything. It could've been any number of other things, but this was one of the first significant things people would've seen when watching the remade trilogy for the first time.

2 hours of Wedge vs Boba Fett. Epic dogfights, epic blaster dueling, epic lightSabre battles.

Greatest Star Wars movie ever made.

I have a trilogy on VHS, but I think it was like the 2nd release. The one that makes half of a Vader face when next to each other. Or it might have been the box that made the face, no clue.
I don't even like Star Wars.

Star Wars - original release... I have on LD (that's LaserDisc to those not in the 1990s "new, best ever" video format); I think in CAV.


Down to about 8" that I don't have on DVD. (Never seen the "extended" It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World on DVD.)

I never saw the original movies until the remakes when they were in theaters when I was in like 4th grade I believe. I guess that's why none of those changes are a very big deal to me.

California gets lion share of national foreclosure debt relief.


Here's hoping that things get shored up financially and economy picks up.
