Ah, I see.
I’m aware the colours are a bit different. I do prefer the colours of the older master(s), but the difference isn’t too great to bother me.
As for DNR … *shrug*
At the end of the day, it’s the entire series + the two spinoff movies; I wasn’t gonna past it up when I only had Volume 1 of Season 1 on DVD.

How dare you weed the Batman: TAS DVDs in favor of the BD set.
I’ll probably watch it sometime for the Tangerine Dream score alone.
I’m not a Gnostic. I find its dualism problematic, actually. But I can still appreciate it. The Old Testament’s portrayal of God isn’t 100% ugly, but it still ascribes much ugliness to God. The Gnostics rightly recognized that ugliness as antithetical to the overall message of Jesus and rejected it; they just went a little too far.
John Saxon passed away at 83. R.I.P.
First time hearing about this. He’s one of my favourite actors, and one of the few masculine men I’ve been attracted to. I hope his passing was a peaceful one.
I love Dark Empire. Dark Empire is what ROTJ should’ve been.
But not Dark Empire II/Empire’s End. Screw those.
I kinda like 'em, for this reason:
They look like indy comic book covers from the 1980’s.
Thanks, I hate it.
The Spanish Blu-Ray of Highlander: The Source may top the list. Not only is it pan and scan, it has severe compression worse than many of the first DVDs ever, and no extras whatsoever. This for one of the worst films out there.
There’s justice in the world after all.
I’d also buy that movie ticket for a dollar.
What if George Lucas never made Star Wars at all?
Taking the butterfly effect into account, a cumulative amount of individuals conceived in the wake of Star Wars’ release would never have been born, and their absence would’ve led to even more differences. I imagine the world post-'70s would’ve been radically different — culturally, politically, etc.
It occurs to me that Obi-Wan Kenobi’s first name (added in the 1976 draft) suggests a “pale belt” or a white belt from karate (suitable for a wizardly advisory figure, in the vein of Gandalf the White).
Then I remembered that Edgar Allan Poe allegedly contrived to get himself thrown out of West Point by wearing “white belts and gloves, under arms” during a parade inspection, as per regulations… but nothing else.
Then I remembered that around the time of the 1975 third draft, Lucas drew on Kurosawa’s Hidden Fortress for inspiration by consdiering casting Ben Kenobi as Japanese, and Leia as either Japanese or part-Asian, suggesting a familial relationship of some sort.
And then it came to mind that Ben Kenobi had a prosthetic left arm in that draft also.
And then I thought about how people in the desert climate of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Barsoom generally don’t wear clothing except for the leather straps of their “war harness”.
Now I’ve got a vision in my head of Leia Organa, Queen of the New Alderaan colony on Tatooine, going around wearing nothing but some strategically placed belts and long gloves to cover up a pair of droid arms.
I think I might have done a little too much LDS, as they say. 😉
I’d buy that movie ticket for a dollar!

Okay, looks like you guys are hard
While we’re at it, I feel like I’ve been in the same boat as snooker for a while now - I just don’t have the willpower to not check this site as part of some boredom autopilot.
Make that three of us.
So long, snooker. May the zephyr take you high across the sky, butterfly (forgive me the poor poetry).
In theory, I approve. In practice, I approve.
Iain McCaig and Doug Chiang should be working on new films, way too talented to be storyboarding or doing concept arts for novels and comic books.
I like the insinuation that novels/comics are inferior mediums to film.
Frankly, I’d love to read a comic drawn by McCaig/Chiang, and would prefer it over a movie. Wonder if either have considered delving into that artform.
Death by inundation or death by immolation? I’ll have to get back to you on that.
