No I've seen it I'm just wondering why someone thought you impersonated them or whatever. No problemo.

I don't miss the orange blur under Luke's speeder.
I like the fact that in the SE they fixed the snow speeders so that they are actually opaque and not see-through.
I also like the fixing of the Rancor scene...and the fact that they finally (in 2004) removed that strange blob floating next to the emperor's face.

I guess that's it.


The Rancor wasn't truly "fixed" until the DVD release. As said, the Snowspeeders were not corrected as ILM claims they were, and the Emperor's slug is still there, no? If anything, more problems have been created with the DVD than fixed. In my opinion anyway.

"If there's a bright center to the universe, we're on the planet that is farthest from."

"Not unless you could alter time, speed up the harvest or teleport me off this rock."

"What a desolate place this is."

"There's not much to see. I use to live here, you know."

And also the Biggs scene that was cut, he talks about the Empire not having any interest in the planet or something. But these are rather obscure references. Still...

I absolutely hate the "new" ROTJ
Time
Reasons I hate the ROTJ SE:

5. Jedi Rocks. Whatever claims Lucas makes as to not having enough money or creatures to make a large band is BS because Jabba's Palace was loaded with them. He could've jut as easily used more puppets in the band and made it like he "originally intended it to be" back in 1983.
4. Yub Nub. I got chills when this song played and the original spirit of Anakin appeared. Now, that is all gone, because...
3. Anakin replaced. The hell. All stupid explanations for it aside, it looks dumb. Who filmed this thing?!
2. End celebration. It really is completely out of place and has Gungans. Not cool in any respect. Of course, the effects were nice at the time ("Wow, look at Coruscant!"), but it simply doesn't fit in with ROTJ.
1. Emperor statue. This is one of the small things that pissed me off. The Emperor has a statue? To me, it makes him seem kinda lame..."Make me a statue!" Gah, I don't know, never liked the idea.

don't know if this topic has been cover here or not but i just saw the DVD's this weekend and it really bothered me...

anyway, just thought i'd see if i was the only one with this view...


Rocked. New stuff sucks. I mean what were they trying to make it more serious or something when there are friggin Ewoks banging on stormtrooper helmets? Please.

No he's using the Force to mask his true appearance. His old master, Darth Plagueis, discovered a method to control midichlorians and create life. At least, this is all according to ROTS spoilers. I believe they are true.

Anyway there is a 20 year difference (or something like that) between III and VI, so the difference in appearance will either be explained off as aging over time or something else...the movie's not even out yet, I believe it will be explained at some point. Hopefully.
