Just made an account here to say that this was absolutely brilliant. ROTJ has such strong foundations brought down by extraneous nonsense, and this really helped the film shine. I really have no complaints about anything besides the audio mixing – it really feels like some scenes are arbitrarily louder or quieter than they should be. Not sure if that’s an issue with your edit or the original, but it was off-putting.

Technically the original unaltered version doesn’t have this problem

Nope. Wrong.

Hai George

No, I’m not George Costanza, though given another decade or two, I’ll probably resemble him.

I meant Lucas.

Your reading comprehension isn’t all that virile, is it? I couldn’t very well resemble Costanza in 20 years if mine head of hair was as robust as Lucas’.

I’d burn all prints of the OOT if it brought down Disney, Hollywood entire, and the false god Mammon.

Are you sure you’re on our side?

My commitment to limited copyright and the public domain transcends any commitment to any Star Wars film.

So essentially your George Lucas.

Oh, yeah, certainly. 'Cause as we all know, Lucas was an outspoken anti-capitalist who didn’t own a multi-million-dollar production company, who didn’t make millions of dollars from IPs he hogged the copyright to, who then didn’t turn around and willingly sell both his company and his IPs to the Malignant Mouse.

Run along home and go play with your Star Wars action figures, little boy. Your attempts at repartee are feeble.

Well, you certainly hate the OUT like he does. Why are you here on a pro OUT site anyway if you hate it so much? Oh and how about you run along home to your special editions while us big boys enjoy the unaltered versions.

I would do anything in my power short of violence to see gross, rampant, malignant capitalism dismantled.

So you ARE basically George Lucas - hunting down every single copy of the Star Wars Holiday Day Special and smash it with a hammer 😉

Now THAT’S repartee which works!

I’ll be at the Galaxy’s Edge theme park soaking in all the Star Wars I can, seeing Episode IX multiple times in Dolby, and enjoying my Disney+ subscription. Life is short, I am going to enjoy what I enjoy.

Feel free to do that. But try to at least retain some class consciousness and remember what Disney is.

Marxism on a Star Wars board. Seriously?

Marxism ain’t all bad. Divorced of the antireligious, anti-nuclear family, and violent revolutionary crap, it’s quite appealing.

Hey man, I totally understand your perspective and why it makes you so angry, but I don’t think anyone here is necessarily against you. I feel like your hostility towards capitalism and Hollywood in general is sorta seeps out sometimes onto other members on here.

I don’t know, I’m not trying to be rude. I get where you’re coming from, but I also don’t think the people on here are against you. Just sometimes your comments feel a little pretentious, and people are going to be less inclined to listen to you that way.

I’m glad we have someone that reminds us every once in awhile that Star Wars is a commercial product as much as it is a fairy tale, but maybe people are just put off a little by your fervor sometimes. But I get it. Just wanted to give you my two cents.

No problem.

I see you missed the forest for the trees, as per usual.

To speak in clear, simple, North American English terms you will hopefully comprehend, I do NOT hate the OOT. I do NOT want all prints of the OOT destroyed. At the same time, I DO hate gross, rampant, malignant capitalism and I DO want gross, rampant, malignant capitalism destroyed. I hate Disney, I hate ALL of Hollywood, because Hollywood is a manifestation of gross, rampant, malignant capitalism. I would do anything in my power short of violence to see gross, rampant, malignant capitalism dismantled. If that “anything” included sacrificing all prints of the OOT — leaving the world with less-than-perfect fan restorations and recreations — I would sacrifice those prints — not willingly, but without hesitation.

THE FORCE AWAKENS (Episode VII) Discussion *SPOILER THREAD* See OP For Trailer/Teaser Links--Trailer is out!

I saw a post on imdb that really cracked me up. The poster (whose handle is ‘bobsutherby’) points out that by draining the sun, the SK Base consequently kills every planet in that system anyway. So all the base needs to do is drain stars!

Which begs the question (this is me now) - how does the FO choose which system it will destroy in order to power up to destroy another? Does it wait until at least 2 systems are in transgression, or does it have to choose stars with uninhabited or no planets?

I thought the IMDB forums were deleted after they closed them?

Archive?

Some changes to the categories in the Star Wars section of the OT.com...
Time

• General Star Wars Discussion
• Original Trilogy
• Prequel Trilogy
• Sequel Trilogy
• Beyond the Main Saga (ie, Anthology films, animated & live action tv series, future RJ & W&B content, Holiday Special, & Ewok films)
• The EU (ie, books, comics, games & radio dramas)
• Theatrical Cuts vs. Subsequent Releases
• Toys & Memorabilia

I like it, though I’d eliminate “General Star Wars Discussion”. With discussion of the Saga/spinoffs/EU split off into their own subforums, I don’t think there’d be much left to discuss there.
