That is a stupid statement considering he made THX.

It’s just a weird, dumb movie.

When was the last time you even watched the theatrical version, if ever? A lot of people here (myself included) have put in lot of effort and money to restore it.

What - did Lucas change that one too?

Yes, and it makes even the SE changes seem mild by comparison.

I hear they put the 1891 monument in storage, which is better than simply destroying it. I think it’s important to remember not just what we value now, but what we once valued in the past, this includes the bad. The monuments are physical evidence of this. We never valued Benedict Arnold, but we do value all the innocent lives lost in the conflict, and once valued the lives of people like General Lee, who I honestly can’t fault for fighting the Union anyway, the guy might be the worst Confederate figure to point at for dishonor and suppression.

In regards to the rest of the discussion, I’m in general agreement with Dom (I think this is the first time we’ve been on the same side of an issue in this thread).

thejediknighthusezni, your history of irrational posts speak for themselves. You are ill qualified to be giving advice to anyone around here. Please stop posting in this thread.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Jack is dead at the end (and Ashi takes his place or something), but yeah I think they’ve probably done their service to the harakiri/seppuku possibility. Which is pretty cool honestly because it’s such a big part of samurai culture but was obviously never even something that would have been so much as mentioned on the show when it was more kid-aimed.

Not to mention evil spirits trying to drive the hero into committing it.

Samurai Jack

Not sure I like the severed head assassin robot shtick. And the penis joke just seemed gratuitous. I almost did a spit take when I heard it.
The flashbacks and references to past episodes was cool. I don’t think I ever caught the one with the never-ending dance rave people though.
And just who was that mysterious creature giving directions outside the bar?

The really big issue the show has tapdanced around from the beginning is if Jack succeeds, the Aku “future” ceases to exist, or is overwritten. None of Jack’s allies will remember him, if they exist at all?

Last movie seen

I’ve only seen the trailers, but they were kind of restrained with the CGI, and at least attempted to stay true to the look of the strip. Pity Fox seems more interested in Blu Sky Studios cranking out more Ice Age sequels than doing something new.
And when was the last Peanuts theatrical feature? 1980?

4K restoration on Star Wars

It’s just that Pablo guy isn’t it? There have to be some people deep inside Lucasfilm who love the originals as much as we do. George would never have allowed the GOUT discs without some gentle persuasion.

And yeah, Lucas’ own words might be the best thing to say on the 25th.

After seeing the Satanist/atheist version of The Ministry/Crucifixion ON RESSURECTION SUNDAY, I hope the Vatican keeps O’Reilly until they all go off to Hell.

What the heck are you rambling on about??

I’m not sure there is such a thing as the “Satanist/Atheist version of the Crucifixion”. I mean, what?!? …Unless you’re talking about the film “The Last Temptation of Christ”. Yes, that film is all kinds of straight up wrong.But then, if you object to it, why would you watch it? And on Easter Sunday?

Even so, what does Easter have anything to do with Bill O’Reilly and why should “the Vatican keep [him]”?!?

Maybe it has something to do with one of Bill’s books?
