This 2007 Archival Edition - For Real Or Not ???
Time
Geez, I'm really looking forward to this. Makes me even wonder why we still need the OOT (sorry.)

All right, I'll still help you guys support the OOT, even though I've all the official DVDs. But when this "Definitive" version comes out, and if all films turn out great, I might show more respect for that. Lucas still needs to show respect for his older work though.

Heh, funny. Whenever I think about liking the new stuff more, something pops up in my head telling me to keep with the original version .

Help Wanted: Can someone send me free copies of an OOT preservation on DVD?
Time

I’d like someone to burn and mail me a copy of the best NTSC version of the original films, along with RowMan’s bonus disc for each one. I can make my own cases, but I can’t labels discs very good, so if you could do that too, that’s fine.

The thread where I originally asked this has faded to nothing, and besides, it was about another question.

Your Favorite Star Wars Film
Time
I know this has been asked a hundred times, but...

Which Episode of Star Wars if your absolute favorite?

I'm undecided, but my sister like ROTS the best, because it's the only she can understand. (And because she has a crush on Hayden. )

<EDIT>
If Adamwankenobi answers this thread, Lucas will be assassinated on June 17, 2006.

<EDIT>
He has answered. Lucas is doomed.

Info Wanted: Just wondering... re acquiring a digital copy of something I already own?
Time
(sigh. This is the same thing I had to go through on DoomWorld)

I don't want to have to download an entire set, but I don't want to have to pay for a packaged set either, because I already own both the 2004 DVDs AND the 1995 VHS tapes.

Who can mail me a DVD set with good menus, several chapters, detailed box art and disc covers, and a disc full of special features, without charging me anything for it?

TV Recordings of Star Wars Films
Time
As for myself:

Name: The Empire Strikes Back
Version: Original
Date: June 1992 (It was the NBC Sunday Night Movie)
Commercials: Listerine, Sea World, Prudential, Free Pizza at Pizza Hut, etc. (there was a promo for Batman Returns in a Diet Coke commercial). Since the 1992 Olympics were next month, there were many commercials related to the Olympics, including Budweiser. There was also Little Caesars promo for Election '92.
# of Breaks: Can't remember
Completed recording: No. Starts when Han enters the Hoth Base, and ends at the beginning of the lightsaber duel. (Sad, but true)

Name: A New Hope
Version: Special Edition
Date: May 2002 (Rough Estimate)
Commercials: Mostly local crap. Since it was recorded on the WB, there were a lot of commercials for the WB shows, like Charmed and Smallville.
# of Breaks: Can't remember
Completed recording: No. Starts in the middle of the opening dialogue, and end at the break before the award ceremony. (Again, sad but true)

TV Recordings of Star Wars Films
Time
If you look through your old collection of TV recordings, do you happen to come across any that contain footage of the Star Wars films? If you do, post these details:

-Name of the film
-Original or Special Edition
-Time Period Recorded (Doesn't need to be exact)
-If commercial breaks were present, what the commercials were about.
-Number of commercial breaks
-If recording is incomplete.

Any Star Wars indicia other than the films doesn't count. This includes TV specials, cartoons, trailers, TV Spots, and commercials for toys and other stuff.

Asterix
Time
Has anyone ever heard of Asterix. It's a french comic book and quite possibly the most famous one in all of Europe. Unfortunately it's virtually unknown in America and Japan, since we both have our own comic book legends.

Anyways, the comic is set in 50 BC. Julius Caesar and the Roman Empire have taken over all of EUrope except for one small-but-strong Gaulish village. The hero of the village is Asterix, who drinks a magic potion to give him super strength whenever he's in danger. His best friend is Obelix, a fat guy who's favorite food in all the world is roast boar and has a pet named Dogmatix. Other people in the village are, Getafix, a druid who makes Asterix's potions, Cacofonix, a bard with a horrible singing voice, and Vitalstatistix, the chief of the village. Throughout the series, Asterix and Obelix go on many adventures, not just in Europe, but in other places like the Middle East.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/2/29/Asterixcover-asterix_the_gaul.jpg

The comic is older than you think. The first issue, "Asterix the Gaul" came out in 1961, before Spider-Man came out. Asterix's creater, Goscinny, died in 1977 (coincidence?). After that, the stories were written by the comic's illustrator, Uderzo. Many fans like Goscinny's stories better because of the sense of humor. The series still goes on today, even though this year's issue, "Asterix and the Falling Sky" was a flop because of references to American and Japanese comics and is rumored to be the last in the series.

There was also a cartoon series based on Asterix. It's not really a series though, because the episodes were released several years apart from each other. Many fans consider the three episodes made in the 80s to be the best, because of the quality. Live action movies were made about Asterix in the 90s, and another one is scheduled to be released next year.

<EDIT>: I forgot to mention the video games, and there were quite a few of them. I remember some being for Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis, and there was an arcade game that played like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In fact, Atari recently released a new Asterix game for the PS2 called "Asterix & Obelix Kick Buttix". It's been released in America, so if you have it, tell me if it's good or not.

Anyways, my school has a french class, and my younger sister is in it. My uncle (who grew up in the 80s) told me his class watched some Asterix episodes in french language during his french class. And I thought it'd be a neat idea if my sister's french class could do the same. I already showed her french teacher an Asterix comic (Asterix in Spain, English version), and he said he enjoyed it and would love for me to find him some episodes to show to the class. I told him I'd give him the episodes on 1 CD each, then he could hook up a projector (our school has one) to his computer and the class can watch it on the wall instead of a normal TV screen.

I know a place where I can download the english versions of the episodes, but the teacher would only accept them if they were in french. Do you know of a place where I can get the french versions of the episodes?

Meanwhile, here's a Wikipedia link. Tell me what you think of Asterix.

Time

I’ve got the 1995 THX Widescreen version of the original Star Wars Trilogy on VHS. But I don’t really like playing them a lot, because I don’t want them destroyed. I noticed I can download the three films off MySpleen, which I’ve already registered on. But I don’t want to do it if it’s illegal, especially since it’s movies I’m dealing with.

Is it OK to download a movie that you already legally own? If it is, then I’ll download them. I’ll only use them because I don’t want my VHS tapes destroyed. They’re too valuable.
