"I feel cold... [whisper]DEATH[/whisper]..."
Time
I believe one of the Timothy Zahn novels sheds light on the Dagohbah cave. Yoda using a place heavy in darkside vibes to conceal himself from the Empire makes more sense than simply choosing a planet off the beaten path. I guess as far as official explanations go, we're always going to wonder what that place was before it was overgrown. You can clearly see a wall in one shot, so it's not a natural cave,

Close Encounters Of The Third Kind
Time
IIRC, the CAV had more extras. Also the "special edition" scenes were present at the end of each side. Programming your Laserdisc player to play certain chapters in sequence would recreate the SE cut. (Criterion also did this with Halloween.) The CLV is pretty much the non-SE movie only. (No inside the mothership scene at least.)

Lost Highway

This actually came out on DVD in Canada, (the bargain bin at my local Kmart seems to be full of imported Canadian discs) unfortunately it's full frame.

Star Trek is Gay

This has been common knowledge amongst fans for several years. Not a big deal except to the media.

I feel your pain. I really want to see "MirrorMask" and it's playing very far away from me. What's the good of multiscreen theaters if they are all showing the same thing on five screens at a time?
By the way, Stallone is at it again!

So much for not making monetary gain from time travel, Doc!
There are scratch-off lottery tickets in California featuring artwork from all six movies. (Marketed along with coins that resemble the old Kenner medallions.) I'm sure some collectors were in a dilemma over whether to scratch them or put them in a display case! I guess trilogy slot machines may appear some day.

His time was short...especially on the SW screen
Time
It's a testament to the power of these movies that a small role becomes a legend amongst fans. And an action figure. It was fun spotting him in Batman. (When I noticed who was playing Bruce Wanye's father, then it gets weird!) He was also in the 1980 Flash Gordon movie as Dr. Zarkov's assistant.

Take care, Laserman. I have a good idea of the sort of treatments you're talking about. Hope it goes well for you. I was thinking today how neat it would be if there was a OT convention someday. You would definitely have to be one of the guests of honor.

any one else pre-order 1 of these?or have these sets?
Time
Clearly Anchor Bay has been taken over by the tall man and his minions. Don't open that box!
I would really love to see that set released in the states, but the video rights to the films are split up. MGM has the original and Oblivion. (Both DVD's out of print?) Universal apparently still owns II and III, and no DVD's in sight!

Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if LFL employees hung out here. There have to be a few who are sympathetic to the cause. Pity they probably strip search anybody who works in the film vaults.

What I presume was an earlier form of Macrovision used to drive me nuts with rental tapes. (This was back in the days of a simple RF connection to the tv.) Used to happen most often with CBS/Fox titles. I would return the tape to the rental store and complain it was impossible to watch the movie, and they would pop it into their machine and it played back fine! Either it was really incompatible with several makes of VHS machines, or the sneaky bastards had a video stabalizer in their store setup.

Well, after seeing it in the theater, my friends and I all speculated Marty would rebuild the time machine in another DeLorean after he became a famous rock star.
Isn't the Universal Studios tour attraction technically BTTF 4 anyway?

Zemeckis and Gale should have thought of that before leaving in that shot of the flux capacitor post-DeLorean destruct in BTTF III.
And who the heck started that damned E.T. II rumor up again? Or do rumors never die now?

If you stop Stallone now, the "Rocky 5000" joke in Spaceballs won't make any sense, nor will the movie poster in Airplane II.
