Any favorite scenes?
Time


-luke NOT crossing the rubicon, refuses to let his emotions get the better of him and telling the emperor that he will never join the dark side.

-Darth Vader, Anakin Skywalker - after throwing it all away and spending most of his life ruining himself as much as his friends and loved ones, makes the ultimate sacrifice.  perfectly staged, scored and shot.  THANKS HARMY!!

-vaders funeral - early example of 'closure'

-the celebration - i like yub nub.  i like seeing the rebels celebrate.  i like the idea of seeing a group of characters we all came to know and love - those in the flesh and in spirit.  Thanks harmy!!

I love all four of these scenes, when Luke tells the Emperor that he has lost because he won't turn to the dark side, even after years of watching the films. It still suprises me when the Emperor uses Sith Lightning to attack Luke, as the look on his face is that he is not phased by Luke's decision not to turn to the dark side and you know something is going to happen but not that.

I like yub nub too, why they felt it necessary to replace it with that awful piece of music when they "remastered" the trilogy is beyond me. That is why I bought the trilogy box set that included the Original Theatrical releases on the bonus disc, although the films are in 4:3 A little adjustment of my televisions settings and I am able to watch them at a reasonable size with reasonable quality sound. 

Which is how I remember them as a child, yeah the film is a little grainy but that doesn't bother me it just adds to the overall effect to me, also you don't get all those CGI scenes and adjustments they insisted on adding in all the films in particular ANH which to me is a real Kick in teeth to the Special effects and puppet guys works. Also what is the deal with the whole Jabba at the falcon scene not necessary anyway, let alone the whole walking over the tail bit so stupid.

Han already knows the deal with Jabba and expresses that quite well, he needs to pay him off end of.

And Han definitely shot first!

No don't do that, whatever you do don't watch 1 to 6, watch 4,5 and 6 first then watch 1,2 and 3 much better that way.

That's ok your English is pretty good. Don't worry the others are just having a laugh. So you prefer Revenge Of The Sith out of all six Episode's then?

Are you talking about Episode III Revenge of the Sith or Episode VI Return Of The Jedi?

I think he means Prowse did a public appearance in costume...

EDIT:timdiggerm beat me to it. ;)

 

no I mean they won a competition to meet him, obviously at an event of some sort and he was in full costume/rig whatever you want to call it, but they did meet him in private not just as part of a large group or something like that.

I own most of the films on crappy ol' VHS, own a bunch of Star Wars novels, and I'm obsessed with getting my hands on some graphic novels/trade paperbacks - of which I own none - but beyond that, the franchise has no real influence on my life.

If you were to ask my 10-12 year old self, though ...

 

 

yeah defo on that i spent most of my younger years fuming over the fact that my much older cousins won a competition and got to meet David Prowse in the full Darth Vader rig lucky beep's life's just not fair lol

I know Star Wars has quite a bit of influence my phone has a Star Wars ring and message alert tone and has a Star Wars skin on it as does my Ipod. My computer and laptop have Star Wars desktop themes and half my wardrobe is taken up by Star War EU paperbacks.

 

How does it influence your life?

OT: No Lightsabres for Yoda or The Emperor

I don't know why they changed it, but I can tell you why this wasn't the case in the OT: because it's self-defeating and pointless. Pointless, pointless, pointless. It would be like giving Dumbledore a large staff instead of a wand. Or having the film adaptation of "Return of the King" decided by a swordfight between Aragorn and some physical form of Sauron. I believe they actually considered doing that. Luckily, they didn't, and the LotR films are still a good example of a respectable film adaptation for a book that's difficult to transfer to the big screen without angering lots of fans.

It is self defeating to right, and yeah agree it is difficult to adapt works to the big screen.

Saber or no saber issues aside, I have to give George one bit of credit. He's kept Yoda's origins shrouded in mystery.

We still don't even know his species in an era where every Cantina creature has a backstory.

A certain bounty hunter lost some of his mystique once we knew way too much about him. ;)

Totally agree with all points here, keeping yoda's origins a mystery is a big plus for me, but de-masking Boba Fett was a big no no for me,  he went from a mysterious elusive character to a forma New Zealand soap opera star in the blink of a prequel  how is that fair
