STAR WARS: EP IV 2004 <strong>REVISITED</strong> ADYWAN *<em>1080p HD VERSION NOW IN PRODUCTION</em>
Time
None taken, the Boba Fett is something I can live with, I just thought the scene might be better if Adywan can get rid of him if he decides to keep the Jabba scene as for the swinging Jawas its up to Adywan, whatever he wants I just thought what ADM and Darth Editous did made the Mos Eisley scenes better...

I have to say this project looks amazing Adywan and I am amazed by the effort you are putting into it and look forward to its completion. Its your "vision" of ANH of course but I was wondering will you be chopping the Jawas falling from the Ronto scene as the Darth Editous and ADM versions look so much the better IMO with that cut from the film and Gorilla has brought up some interesting point the Jabba scene has never really worried me the Boba looking around has abit and it spoils the scene slightly IMO so if he could be somehow erased it that would improve the Jabba scene, but what would be cool would be if the chest explosions on the officers in the cellblock could be restored if possible. Keep out the good work and look forward to seeing this

Whoes The Better Director Romero Or Lucas?
Time
I have to agree, the original three "Dead" films Night, Dawn and Day of the Dead are classics of the horror genre, and I was dissapointed by Land of Dead and the remakes of Night and Dawn, I just found them unnecessary remakes of classic films that didnt need remaking and nothing spectacular in their execution and Land a dissapointing addition to a great trilogy which didnt need a fourth film.

As for the question I would say George A Romero is a better director than George Lucas.

Yeah I remember when the OOT was on UK TV around Christmas, I used to make sure I was watching it no matter what anyone else wanted to watch I was lucky my Mum liked Star Wars as well so my Dad was out of luck if he wanted something else on the TV

I remember going to see Star Wars for the first time in 77 at the cinema it was pouring with rain outside and we had to queue outside to get in but me and my mum were so excited that we didnt mind getting absolutely soaked.

I remember when I had to have all the Star Wars figures and the Klatuu figure was the only I needed at time and was impossible to find, we looked all over London and couldnt find him but my nan found him in her local toy shop in a small seaside town...

I remember going to see the Star Wars Triple Bill at the local cinema it was the first time I saw Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi back to back. The cinema was packed and was one of the best days out I had as a kid.

How do you watch the Star Wars Saga?
Time

I watch all six films TPM ATOC ROTS SW ESB ROTJ but I watch them individually, I am not interested in watching it in George's order 1-6, I might if I have the time watch a trilogy but I am not bothered about spending a huge amount of time watching all six at in a day or watching them over a short period of time and I dont watch the 2004 Trilogy I watch the OOT or a fan OT when I watch the original films and George's Prequels when I watch them though I find the fan ones interesting to watch.

The EWOK Film Trilogy
Time


I dont think Ive ever seen the Ewok films, though I liked the Ewoks in Return of The Jedi for some reason I never got to see these films at the cinema or on VHS I dont know they just never really interested me or never just got round to watching them though I do remember the Ewoks and Droids cartoons but these I dont think I ever saw or will ever see....

Favorite Star Wars Movie
Time


I dont dislike the Jabba scene myself, though if I had the choice I wouldnt have included it as I though the pacing of SW/ANH was perfect as it was, and it does seem to go over the same thing again and Boba seemingly mugging the camera is the part I dislike most of the scene, I agree though it maybe would have been better to wait until ROTJ for Jabba to be revealed, its maybe a good deleted scene that should have stayed with the other deleted scenes..

I didnt like Xtro, I have it on DVD and thought it was pretty crappy, the only redeeming factors for me in the film is the gorey bits of which there are a few and Maryam D' Abo (of The Living Daylights) other than that I hated it and think it is one of worst Horror films ive seen. There are plenty of Horror films being shown on satelite TV here all the time now because of Halloween coming up, I watched Exorcist 3 last night though it isnt really gorey it is a really good and IMO underated Horror film.

I would be up for it I wouldnt have a problem meeting up, I live in London though something could be arranged..


As for the 30th itself I couldnt care less, the only things that interest me Star Wars releated in 2007 is the X0 Project and this site, I have no interest at all in what George and his company have lined to celebrate it be it merchandise or events like Celebration Europe..

I find most Horror films fun thats why I watch them, I love the Friday the 13th films but I dont take them seriously, analyze them or look for any sort of subtext because there isnt any, I mean how many times does Jason die and come back to life in the films, and the plot more or less the same in every film but they are fun to watch with maybe a scare here and there and thats the point to them, The only Horror films I dont find particulary find fun but watch are the ones like Cannibal Holocaust, Ill watch them, but because of the content, they are streching the limits of being classed as having any sort of entertainment value when I watch them.

2004 DVD crap-o-la
Time
There are few parts of the 2004 editions are dont think are all that great, I have only seen Jedi twice and the others about three times and I havent watched for well over a year, I cant see myself watching these ever again unless they are on TV, because if I want to watch the SE at anytime the SE versions the guys on here are producing I prefer, I got them as a birthday gift so I dont want to get rid of them so I just keep them in my collection.

Ive not seen it yet, I have been meaning to get it on DVD for ages to see it but never got round to it, from what ive read and heard its supposed to be a bit of a return to form for him and better than a lot of his recent stuff, Ive tried to stear clear of his early 90s - early 00s output as I didnt think much of his films in that era, and stick with the stuff I like from the late 70s to late 80s but if I remember I will get this on DVD to have a look..

I liked They Live, I thought it was really good and it had some great one liners and I love it when Roddy Piper and the black guy have that big fight in the alley which seemed to last forever, the only Carpenter stuff I didnt like is the stuff after it Memoirs Of An Invisible Man, In The Mouth of Madness, Escape From LA and Ghosts Of Mars, but his late 70s to late 80s stuff I really do like and do watch over and over again..

I'm going to have to stop you there! Assault On Precinct 13 and The Thing compete for being his best directed films, I would say. As for me, I prefer The Fog to Halloween. But the influence of Halloween cannot be overlooked. It's style, pacing, scoring and atmosphere are excellent examples of the genre.



The Thing, Assualt on Precinct 13 and The Fog are among some of my favourite films, I like pretty much like all of his stuff until after Prince Of Darkness and am not some so keen on his newer stuff, I think the directing was great in all three of them and in some of his other films, I just think his work on Halloween was something special, especially when he was directing The Shape.

Halloween was one of the first of the "slasher" films that were made but it was the one that layed the groundwork for films like Friday the 13th to Scream etc etc, and it is still among the best if not the best slasher/Horror films ever made after all these years and is probably John Carpenters best directorial effort, it was made for about $300,000 and became the highest grossing independant film made at that time.

Where does your screen name come from?
Time
I post on the Anchor Bay film forum under my initials which is boring and someone else was using this name there and I thought it was a pretty cool and more interesting name so I decided to pinch it and use it for myself on other forums, I know there is a rock group called Mr Bungle but I havent listened to them for ages, so this has nothing to do with me using this screename though I have been asked if that is the reason why elsewhere...

Your first reaction to Hayden is ROTJ

Originally posted by: Mielr

I mean, the SE ROTJ ending was ruined anyway with the new-age music and the multi-planet celebrations, he just put the nail in the coffin with Hayden. I had actually heard rumors about it before I saw the DVD, but I couldn't believe it when I actually saw it in front of me.




I love Yub Nub of course but I do like the planets celebrating and the new music at the end, so what Adigitalman did with the ending - getting rid of the "Wesa free" audio and replacing Hayden with Shaw so you have the new ending with Shaw was pretty good
