Star Wars: REBORN - The Complete Saga
Time
Yeah. Lucas really messed up for me purely on what the Old Republic should have looked like. I always imagined far more stone, less metal - I thought this was supposed to be an "old republic." The Senate looks like freakin' Futurama.

I just got around to watching the ESB trailers, and the '1980 Trailer 1' reminds me a lot of a TV spot that ran when the film came out, and I haven't seen it since. I vividly remember being VERY disturbed seeing the shot of Artoo peeking into Yoda's house while being rained on. Now I think it's cute, but back then I got the same feeling you get when you realize you've left your favorite toy outside in the rain.


I went to go see ROTJ in the theatre. I was 3 at the time, and very worried about Artoo's head sticking out while they were flying through space.

//Star Wars Begins\\: HD Version Now on Vimeo

Back on page 2, I suggested "Beginning Star Wars." I guess I can live with "Star Wars Begins."

I'm glad that a title is finally finalized. And now, hopefully I and others won't be haranguing you with title ideas every other page.

Episode II: Shroud of the Dark Side (the TM edit)
Time
I've never been a terribly huge critic of the voice acting, other than the occassional suggestion here and there, but this really is 100% better if you can nail down the "making it sound more like it is actually on the soundtrack."

Hypothetical Question About OT.com Projects
Time
I don't know, though. I mean, it's not as though Lucasfilm had a pre-written agreement with the editors in advance. Plus everything has a bumper at the front saying that the project is a not-for-profit experiment, advising free distribution among those with copies of the source materials. Obviously, the company with the license has the most legal right of obtaining, owning and reproducing their own licensed materials, and with no pre-written agreement of reimbursement, I can't see any company deciding to reimburse the editor. With some fan projects, it would almost be as though Lucasfilm came across a variant of their own product, with 95% of the work already completed for them. At most, I could only see them redesigning menus and the like to keep in line with company templates, removing "shout outs" and other similar markings (logos, bumpers, etc) and removing "offensive" material (i.e. non-canon). For the editor, I could see name credit being possibly given, but not much more.

Again, though, I can't see them wanting to do this necessarily with most of our projects here, but I do think they could do it with little hassle.

Hypothetical Question About OT.com Projects
Time
Since Lucasfilm owns the rights to all of these resources that people use in their projects here, could Lucasfilm theoretically take one of the high-end quality completed projects and release it as their own official product, with no credit to the original OT.com editor? I would say they legally could, though it would be unlikely. Just something I've been thinking about, and I wanted to see what others thought.

A New Direction For The Petition
Time
So, what do you guys think about including a request for deleted scenes/alternate takes/making of materials along with the main petition? My reasoning behind this is that these things are mostly OOP and scattered across a zillion documentaries and releases. Plus, they are all about OOT goodness.

So, now that more people have (likely) seen this, what's the general opinion? How would you rank the editing? Was this made by someone here?

A New Direction For The Petition
Time
A few months ago, I posted a message in the "Suggestions And Ideas" section asking if anyone was interested in this site's petition having a new direction in light of the less-than-stellar OT set released last year on DVD. While the official run on this release is over (December 31, I think?), this DVD can still be found on many store shelves.

Anyway, the long and the short of the situation is that we now have the OT on DVD, and the current petition is now outdated.

I and others feel that it is time to clarify our request on this site's petition. We think it is time to start petitioning for an OT release in higher-quality on BluRay or HD-DVD, as well as in any future storage formats. Some are also asking for remastering to be done for this release. One person has suggested that this site take a hard-line stance on SW releases, saying, "It's the original or bust."

Along with this, I personally feel that while we are at it, we should also be petitioning for the release of deleted scenes/making of material from the original trilogy.

After the original thread sat stagnant for several months, Jay suggested that we repost this in the general discussion section to catch a wider spread of folks for their opinion.

What does everyone else think?

Star Wars DVD Covers

I've got a really simple cover that I made for my as-yet-unfinished SW Video Game Collection. I'll try to upload it so people can take a peek at it.

Gotta love shit threads

At first, I thought you guys were all just being jerks to shadow(beef)curtain. Then I watched the clip. That YouTube clips sums up everything I hate about most online videos. All the same, I think this guy was just trying to contribute something. Maybe not from his responses, though.

Another ugly dog...
