Stage Six:Chop Lucas' head off!


If Lucas dies, who gets the rights to Star Wars?




Wow. That is something I've never thought about before in my life . . . who does? Lucasfilm? And who runs Lucasfilm when the Flannelled One bites it? And will they be willing to release the OOT? Hmm . . . if I'm not here anymore in a month or so . . . you know what happened . . .

Ep. III: Focus on tracked music

That was my favorite scene in the movie.

My favorite bit of music - and I don't know if this is what you're talking about, Trooper, it very well could be the one you hated - was the war march version of the Force Theme. That gave me chills. My favorite overall musical experience had to be the Buddhist "OHM" thing before the "opera", or Battle of the Heroes. Immolation Scene music was too understated, or maybe I was too transfixed by the little legless glow-light onscreen.

Tonight
Time
Good God you're a really depressing bunch . . . reminds me of the last play of the year - I'm a sophomore, and there were a crapload of seniors who've been in drama club for 4 years who kept saying "This is it . . . we'll never do another HS play again together . . . " and making each other cry and whatnot . . . then when we saw Wicked last week, during the song "For Good" at the end, all the seniors started crying again.

Sorry for that, you guys just reminded me so much of that . . .

I'm going to the first showing (12:01 am) tonight. That and 12:03 are sold out, so Al (my manager; I work at the theater) decided to do a 12:05 show as well . . . damn . . . that's a first for the little town I live in. . . .

You guys are pretty frickin' pathetic. Please spare us the psychoanalyzing of George Lucas. None of you know a damn thing about the man, and have never met the man. George Lucas is probably more sane than any twat on this board. After all, I don't see him sitting around on a message board whining like a frickin' baby because he didn't get his way. Get out and perhaps find a girl and stop whining because some filmmaker you don't even know didn't give you what you want. That's truly sad. Insulting Lucas doesn't change a damn thing, and it's not going to help you get what you want.


Y'know what else is pretty pathetic? Your coming onto a messageboard where people do nothing but whine and bitch that they don't get their way just to whine and bitch about their whining and bitching. That's a bit hypocritical, don't ya think?

Lucas compared the debate to older rock fans talking up the Rolling Stones and the Beatles, while younger fans worship hip-hop.


Okay, how 'bout this: I'm 16, NOT a stoner (never touched weed but once in my life), and The Beatles are my absolute favorite band. AC/DC and The Who run close second (tied). I hate hip-hop, but Green Day is my number three.

Star Wars - The Phantom Menace - DLP Presentation Question
Time
The point here is that a lot of times information that *is* on a disc isn't shown on the screen - a little bit always gets cut off the edges on TV screens. TPM was probably framed wrong as that was a 35mm transfer. Example from BEN-HUR:

Actual 70mm scan from the film:



Fixed aspect ratio:



Fixed aspect ratio with the DVD image over the top:




See how much of the image is lost there? That's probably what happened with TPM.

Your pre/post Episode III plans
Time
For the hell of it, I'm not going to be watching anything associated with SW until the day before, when I'll watch the Lucas DVD versions of TPM and AOTC. Maybe CLONE WARS, too. Then ROTS at midnight on the 18th/19th, then the next day, Lucas' DVDs of ANH, ESB, and ROTJ.

After seeing how well they really "gel" together, I'll watch the O-OT to remind me how good it is. =P

Soooo.... which Laserdisc version has the best non-SE version?
Time
Audio for the 92 is the 85 mix, which is the closest approximate of the original Dolby Stereo mix that has also been remastered (the original stereo mix was also released on LD if I'm not mistaken.) The audio for the 93 and 95 discs are remixes that added a lot of sound effects and such, but the video is much better. The EditDroid discs combined the 93 video and 85 audio, and are probably the best representations of the film, so far, outside of straight LD transfers.

It's official: ROTS is really rated PG-13

Also, If Empire was made today, it would have gotten a PG-13. There's no question.


Nope. It was re-rated back in 1997 and 2004. In 97, Jedi almost got PG-13 for the shot of the Rancor eating the Gamorrean guard. From what I've heard (*just* rumor here, mind you) is that Star Wars got PG-13, and that's why Lucas censored the fighting, to bring it down to PG - and that Empire was the only one that never had a rating problem. That part is just rumor though, and as far as I know the rancor thing is true.
