It wasn't the 1997 SE though. It was the 2004 version. At least the 1997 version had a sound mix that at least resembled Star Wars. The current mix doesn't. Between that, the longer edit and the to clear picture with weird coloring, I found the movie extremely boring and couldn't wait for it to be over.

Most of the stories were ones we'd heard before. There seemed to be a good camaraderie between the effects guys. There was a lot of discussion with them and Kurtz, and I really enjoyed that. Carrie Fisher said the "mynock" resembled a vagina. Mark Hamill told a funny story about how the background actors (he hates the term "extras") were saying off-color comments while they were filming the walk down the throne room. He said once he explained the movie to them and what was going on in the scene, they stopped. The mixers on the film talked about the time crunch they were in mixing the movie (8 pm to 8 am, 7 days a week for 7 weeks).
