How do others see the originaltrilogy.com community?

What I find amusing is that OT purists get a bad rap for being rapid, whiny, spiteful fanboys (of which there are some), but the people who constantly beg for scraps from Lucas' table are somehow "better fans."


It's even more amusing when you realize they themselves are "rapid, whiny, spiteful fanboys". They just spew their vitroil at "haters" instead of Lucas.

Did you TYPE all that, or do you have a handy list to cut and paste?

 

 

 

Could you guys stop quoting that list? It's murder on my phone.

Thanks.

 

Oh, and:

-TPM (L8wrtr edit)
-AOTC (JasonN edit)
-ROTS (JasonN edit)
-SW
-ESB
-ROTJ

That's it, that's the list.

(I enjoy the 2D clone wars episodes but they aren't part of my canon)

Which versions of SW, ESB, and ROTJ? ;)

The originals.

The '77/'80/'83 Originals, the '81/'80/'83 Originals, the '85 Originals, or the '93 Originals? In other words, which sound mix and opening crawl do you deem the most canon?

Honestly I don't really care about the opening crawl, and all I want out of the sound mix is a good entertaining 5.1 mix that is reasonably faithful to whatever the originals should sound like (there's way too much that has changed over the years for me to care about).

Sound mixes and crawls don't really have much to do with canon anyway, do they?

Sure they do! "You're lucky you don't taste very good" vs. "You were lucky to get out of there" ring any bells?

Oh, and on another note; I've put up a list of my entire personal canon on deviantART, adding the near and semi-canon works I omitted here and making some minor edits. Here's the link if you guys are interested in seeing it all:

Star Wars coming to Blu Ray (UPDATE: August 30 2011, No! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!)

I actually like some of the paintings. They remind me of the one of the things I like(d) best about SW - the pre-production, EU, and trading card artwork that made it feel like a universe. I mean, that's what SW is to me, so Boba Fett riding a giant lizard, absolutely, put it in there.

This kind of thing:

 

 

These pieces are still much better than the diarrhea in the Blu Ray books, IMO.

Putting the Scene Where Leia Chokes Jabba In an Entirely New Light
Time

twooffour said:

Sorry, nope. The same thing could be said about ANY choking scene ever put in a movie - the difference between that and erotic asphyxiation (the reason David Carradine died) is that the choking is inflicted as a means to kill.

Leia wanted to kill Jabba. The end.

Although I never quite got how... was Jabba's neck at his back??

Party pooper =(
