If you want to grumble for serious things, be honest and just say that it wasn't fair to release special editions only

 You've been making these pronouncements ALL YEAR about how everyone else in the world is supposed to speak and react about a movie. Is there any end to this?

 I didn't say everything has to be updated. But many of those changes work well, and if you're not hyper-nostalgic you can notice that.

 Why do you care if anybody notices anything? You've got the movie the way you like it, you can pop it in the player any time you want. What is this compulsion to lecture people like an unwanted Jehovah's Witness on the porch.

 Beats me, I've never seen it.  But why would you think of that before Animal House or Blues Brothers?  Or even Three Amigos or Coming to America?

 He was at Universal studios promoting an american werewolf-themed Halloween attraction thing when this came up.

THX 1138 "preservations"
Time

The intro was weird, the TCM host introduces the movie as being part of a Telluride film festival retrospective (because that festival is going on now and Lucas did show the new version there in 2004). They give the usual production history/plot summary but never actually say the movie was changed, just that it's from 1971. It's extra creepy coming from the normally film history-conscious TCM.

Ha, the whole thing is so dumb, only deep in the star wars cult world would it be anything but hilarious that they stuck a guy from the early 2000s into an 80s movie. Put some Limp Bizkit in there while you're at it.

4K restoration on Star Wars

Looks like variety used clips from trailers, I think documentaries and entertainment news coverage are allowed to use trailer clips without going through the clearance stuff.

Crispin Glover on how he'd preferred Back to the Future to have ended

Yeah, that "'80s materialism" thing has come up before, and there's plenty of movies where it's true, but I think it's been played up too much here. They live in the same house in the same neighborhood. The tennis rackets just means they play tennis together and are still active. Shit, the truck is a Toyota not a Porsche or something.

Lucasfilm would still physically have the negative and Interpositives, so we'd only have various bootleggy things which is what we have anyway.

We believe that being elitist about Star Wars, and wishing it remained a small, but obscure piece of work, is the wrong way to look at it. Star Wars is, and will be accessible to the people, and we hope to be a part in keeping that way.

What a bunch of bullshit.

Negative One and TeamNegativeOne

Coming from someone who only has about a year's experience with this website, and is therefore out of the loop regarding the history of the transition from negative1 to team_negative1, I also have noticed strange things relating to the team account's posts, especially within the last week or two. Lately the team account has been posting throughout numerous threads (mostly the ones relating to the OOT/SE discussion) saying things that are often baseless and extreme. 

 Yeah, now every post is like a stealth infomercial for the project.

Do you think Disney will release the unaltered versions for DVD and blue ray
Time

I always assumed that if they ever did it, they wouldn't announce it at an event-type situation because there's so much negative baggage about the whole thing. It's like admitting the company policy has been so completely stupid since 1997. Which it is, but you're not supposed to say that right to the customer's face.
