The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)

Glad I finally watched it. While I enjoyed it, I prefer my anti-war social commentary in the form of Planet of the Apes (1968) or Dr. Strangelove. But still an above-par film. 7/10

As long as the film is cut right and Han and Leia’s faces aren’t Magenta, I’d be happy. Everyone who thinks their specific color preferences should carry some weight because they’re reflected in print X or Y is neurotic, IMO. How green were the Death Star walls on a new 1977 Kodak print? I don’t care.

They already did. Kathleen Kennedy already said it’s not going to happen. Just a bunch of people who can’t take a hint and like to bury their heads in the sand.

I didn’t hear that, but heartbreaking as it is, it’s not surprising.

FYI, she didn’t. Granted, she hasn’t said the opposite either.

I just can’t see the OOT ever getting released on its own. As a 2nd disc feature, maybe.

I’d buy a set with both SE and OUT cuts without hesitation. It’s the prequels that would aggravate me. But Lucasfilm has never forced the prequels on people who don’t want them. They have OT sets and have released individual titles as well.

The mere fact of the huge SW pirate market should be motivation enough for them not to force OUT buyers to pay for the prequels.

Is it “casual person who doesn’t know anything about the movie and won’t care” unpolished? Or is it “casual person who doesn’t know anything about the movie and will be distracted by it being ‘unfinished’ so might care” unpolished?

I never thought the DC was deficient until I saw the Final Cut, and deficient is probably way too strong a word. Having seen the edited versions, I find the theatrical unwatchable.

I’m so confused as to why the directors cut is even still out there, save for as a special feature in the box set they put out. Just seems odd that’s what’s on demand and not the final. Theatrical was on Netflix awhile back and that was neat as a curiosity, but with the final cut in existence, I don’t get the persistence of the directors cut.

Honestly can’t imagine them forcing the PT on OUT consumers. Could you imagine the ill will that would provoke?

Star Wars Episode IX (was) to be directed by Colin Trevorrow

Since Colin Trevorrow’s story pitch was so Leia-centric, I guess it’s not surprising that after Carrie Fisher’s death Lucasfilm brought JJ back. With TFA Abrams proved he can do a SW film where one of the three OT leads is absent for the whole thing.

I doubt that had anything to do with it.
