You're such a fuckwit.
Then why the fuck are you here stirring the pot? This site is dedicated to those that want this to happen, not for those that will "just settle" and buy more of George's crap. And by the way, you might want to be sure you remain on topic. This thread is about NOT wanting the Blu-ray set.
The answer to that is $$$ NO $$$.
It never fails. I love a show, it dies. Frakkin' sad. I don't have the strength or means to participate in the campaign, so best of luck to anyone that does. I knew when the name was changed to SyFy, bad things were going to happen.
Yoda said it best....
"I am wondering, why are you here?"
Lackeys talking to lackeys. Lame.
I must have missed something. *Shrug*
The effects on the 1997 mix were astounding in theaters you actually felt a rumble during the death star trench run, or during the initial star destroyer fly over. Not sure if this was DSS sound or DOLBY Digital stereo.
I saw the SE in DSS. TESB and ROTJ were overall pretty impressive, but Star Wars was terrible. The soundfield was too loud, and a couple surrounds actually were blown in a showing after the one I attended. The added "Dirty Harry .44 Magnum" sound to the blasters in the Death Star chasm were completely unnecessary, among other things.
Hey jeditray, you better be sending an apple
Huh? I don't geddit....
Wow, eBay is fast these days. It's already been taken down.
The TPM set has shown up again on eBay:
More comments at ScreenRant:
"This story is true. I work for a conversion house in Hollywood and my boss had meetings with a high up Lucasfilm executive earlier in the month. And for those that think this was just about Star Wars, it wasn’t. They’re converting the films to 3D. They may not announce it next month though, The goal was to make it a surprise an d Blue Sky Disney spoiled that for them. They may wait for a while to announce it, but that Lucas spokesperson denying it is total PR."
"I too want to add a little bit to the validation of this. I work in LA and know quite a few people in the industry. When I went over to a friends house last week, he mentioned that some Lucasfilm big wigs were at his work to check out the 3D they have for conversion of some films. I said the Star Wars films and he smiled and said Nope. His wife asked a question and we changed the subject and didn’t get back to it. But this makes total sense."
Anyone have these available on the Web? I don't have newsgroup access.
all laser disc players have analogue audio out
And some LD models also have digital audio out, just for the record. :)
Ain't gonna happen. Unfortunately.
I'm sure there were more, but one I remember at the moment is not actually a misconception I had, but a childhood friend that went with me on at least one of my multiple viewings of ROTJ at the cinema. He actually believed that what he saw was the remains of the original Death Star, and that half of it was blown away. I set him straight of course, and reminded him of what the crawl said about it being a new station, but for a moment, that kid's mind had already assembled that thought.
This from Vic at ScreenRant:
Blue Sky Disney is known for their reliability. Just because Lucasfilm denied it doesn’t mean it’s not true.
We’ll see how it all shakes out in the end.
Whew, dodged the bullet on that one. For now.
If you have a link to this "confirmation", please post it.
Don't like the title. Other than that, I can only hope that Nolan and his team bring us another quality product, and perhaps this title is just a place-setter until later.
If you're surprised about this, you need to brush up on your George Lucas lore:
Gee wiz, I didn't see this one coming.
Now, the Indiana Jones films are going to be coming in 3D:
Well, I'm guessing that there is no longer any interest here. Which is fine, since I cancelled my first run. I'll go ahead and close up shop here, but I'll keep the files at MegaUpload just in case anyone wants them. Next time, I think I will complete the project before telling anyone about it. Thanks to those that replied and offered input.
