How do you feel about Star Wars being re-titled A New Hope in 1981?

The DC of Star Trek II isn’t a different movie, it’s just a better version of the same movie.

No.

My feelings on this issue are pretty standard for a Star Wars purist. Dumb title and it messes up the timing of the music to the crawl. I call it Star Wars when I can. “The original Star Wars” when people get confused.

Mind elaborating what you’re responding to here?

Star Trek II’s Director’s cut is not better than the theatrical cut.

Making The first politics thread visible once more (but still locked)
Time

The original politics thread existed from 2004-2016, with most of the original contributors no longer on the site, it would be interesting to see a thread that predates the social media age as we know it today. At this point it’s a historical document more than anything else. I ask for the mods here to reconsider putting out that original thread, even if it’s only accessible to members.

Apart from the GFFA, what is the film you own the most copies of?
Time

I got rid of all my DVDs, but I have the VHS and Blu-ray copies of The Wizard of Oz, Cool Hand Luke, Princess Bride, The Iron Giant, Return to Oz, and The Royal Tenenbaums. I also have two Blu-ray copies of North by Northwest, in two different boxsets. That’s not even mentioning any of the Disney films I’ve got.
