The only one who what?


Who thinks some fans have done everything in their power to suck the enjoyment out of something that was once fun.






And before you say that "Lucas sucked the enjoyment out of it for me".

Don't bother. You don't like the SE's, fine. Watch the VHS. That wasn't good enough so you wanted the OOT DVD. After years of fanboy "outrage", you're getting that. Only now that's not good enough either. The screen is too small, the sound is different, the title crawl is moving too fast and it's missing the logo, the list goes on and on. And you wonder why people call Star Wars fans "immature whiners" on MSNBC. Go figure.


I never said that Lucas sucked the fun out of anythng. Nor do I wonder why we were called that. It was a joke. The upcoming DVDs do not meet industry DVD standards, or the standards of anything which has been released in the past decade or so. The complains are all perfectly valid. I want to watch the OOT. I also want to show the OOT to my children, and my children's children. I want to be able to display it on the screen in the same high quality of the rest of my DVDs, with booming sound. The screen isn't too small. The transfer is of poor quality. Lucasfilm have admitted this. I'm not trying to suck the fun out of anything. I just want a high-quality copy of three of the most popular and influential movies ever made in their original form. I haven't insulted you. I don't see why you're attacking me. Perhaps if Lucasfilm would put a little time and effort into these DVDs, then there wouldn't be complaints. Tell me, how would you feel if the SEs, which you prefer, were treated this way? Do me a favor and stop say "you." Because you aren't referring to me, but to the OOT fans as a whole, and you are misjudging us. If you visit a variety of other websites, include The Home Theater Forum and The Digital Bits, the latter of which was selected by Entertainment Weekly, a major mainstream American publication as one of the top entertainment news websites, both feel that way. So does Robert A. Harris, who is an expert on film restoration and restored Lawrence of Arabia and Vertigo. He's not a whiny fanboy, and he agrees too. Stop attacking me. I haven't done anything wrong.

I'm going to send him an email and explain to him exactly how UNdemanding we really are. ALL we want is for three of the the greatest, most influential films ever made to be released (in their original forms) and given the same DVD treatment that any Pauly Shore movie has.

Because he's a troll who has nothing better to do. Don't let it get to you.

Not that that is going to stop you from dreaming… Only in this case, Gaffer is actually a guy.

You have "fun" while watching complete crap? You must have a really depressing life. Fun is normally a reaction to experiences of a playful or lighthearted nature. The AotC and RotS are anything but fun.

Also, I find the original star wars movies to be a lot of fun and I simply want George to release them in a proper way on DVD. Then I can enjoy the "fun" in that way.

Guy, please don't answer JediRandy, he is just trolling, and he is just trying to piss everyone off. I wish there were more fans here who took the opposite view but did it in a respectful way, I hate when everyone agrees. But he is not here to argue, just annoy.

If no one answers him, he will get bored.

Sure, if it were available to buy. Which it isn't.
I have a bad feeling about this...

Looking back over that site I didn't see an email address. I guess he doesn't want anyone telling him what he can shove into what place.

That MSNBC fucktard doesn't know anything about the topic he/she's covering. What a waste of words.

Unfortunately, I have let him get to me. I just don't see why he jumped down my throat. I'm a newbie. All I asked was what he meant by his statement. He attacked me. I was just trying to defend myself.

Time for everybody on this board to fill up MSNBC's mailbox with our whineyness. I've done it once already when this news came out. Apparently those jerkoffs need to feel the wrath of 60,000 pissed off internet geeks.

Let 'em know how much you appreciate their attention to the Fleecing of America when it comes to Lucasfilm. Once upon a time, they'd actually care about a big company engaged in false advertising. Now they're just too timid they'll piss of a potential sponsor.

is this is MSNBC;s take on the situation then I have no confidence in their journalistic integrity. I would have taken them a few minutes of a conversation with a level headed fan to realize this is america and we talk with our wallets and we have a voice in a democracy. The fan's have spoken non anamorphic means 0$ for this blatant attempt to cash in for luca$

Do not forget Lucasfilm and all it's subsidiaries is a multi- billion dollar fortune 500 company, so for them to sell a shoddy product is laughable. But then again money grubbing whore's no know better. star wars transformers anyone?
