These involved various celebrities, before/after each commercial break, talking about what Star Wars meant to them. I used to have the telecast on VHS, but time has not been kind to the internals of those old cassettes and I'm hoping a digital equivalent exists.
why is there an argument about it? people can complain all they want.
To Drooling SW Fanboys, Lucas = God
In their crack-addled minds, no one should ever question their divine God about what He does with His Creation.
'To do so is pure blasphemy against His Word.
The Jedi temple used to belong to the Sith. The Sith occupying the Jedi temple is a far worse message then destroying it.
So Jimbo, exactly which Sith Lords are in there at the end of ROTJ?
Just watch the horrific prequels to see how far removed Lucas is from his younger, more creative self.
Are these segments available anywhere?
Links, offers, etc. would be most appreciated.
But as others have stated, average video quality, noticeable jaggies, and on my PC, there is a light white line that runs down the right side of the screen.
I think he was just stating his opinion about how people (in general) who are passive to the point that they gladly accept (even with their acknowledgement) sub-standard goods/treatment because they for some reason see no point in asserting themselves contradicts his personal philosophy. I didn't see any outright personal flaming.
Exactly, and thanks for posting it so eloquently.
Digital technology moves in such a lifelike way that just seems more natural to me.
LOL, what are you, a robot?
I hardly call not getting the exact version that you want of some movies on DVD a "sh****" lot.
Personally, I think those who want the O-OT, but *accept* the crappy 2004 editions because "we should be thankful for getting anything" are spineless wimps who will likely go through their sad little lives accepting each little crumb people toss them. I'm a successful, A-type, go-getter and I don't accept shit from anyone, no matter if it's Lucas or some moron on this board.
And you, Mr. Spineless, are telling me, to grow up? LOL, have fun living in your parent's basement for life!!
Got a massive DVD collection
Then watch them.
Here's the deal, Lucas did not write, direct, film, edit, act, or partake in any of the other important creative position on ESB or ROTJ, and yet the madman continues to state he "created the original trilogy".
I personally think Lucas has gone totally senile and can't differentiate between OWN and CREATE.
OK, so, maybe he might approve a O-OT release if it requires no work from GL at all, and reverts all the profits to him. Sounds fair.
Not to mention highly feasible.
I mean come on guys, that statement was simply a political angle, so that he wouldn't get raked over the coals for his 'they can buy the OT on VHS" slam. Lucas may be a simpering old fool, but he knows how to market.
What Lucas is really saying here, is that if Magical Fairies do all the work for him, then the O-OT might get put on DVD at around 2020.
Break out the champagne!!!
Does anyone REALLY think Lucas is just going to throw all that away, delete all the PT connections, all the pukey CGI, and simply release the O-OT, a set of films that Lucas calls "unfinished"?
Not me, so why ask for what you will never receive, when you can slam the senile old idiot responsible for this sad state of affairs.
I have a theory that his hair is actualy a hat carved out of wood.
Well, that would match the rest of his head.
What does slavery have to do with a set of DVD's? What does American slavery have to do with anything StarWars?
LOL, Mr Literal stikes again.
It's called a concept, whereby if you accept a shitty lot in life, then expect to have a lot of shit shoved down your throat.
Also, could we please stop suggesting that Vader is undead? It takes all of the emotion out of his struggle with Luke, and his redemption. If Lucas makes he literally dead at the end of III, it will destroy a huge part of the Star Wars' story and impact.
Yeah, we all know that a telltale sign of the Undead is the inability to re-grown human hair, and we also know that Anakin clearly had eyebrows on his... hey waitaminute.....
Lucas: "There is no way that good-hearted Hayden would ever try and attack that defenseless bunny, so it's been updated to my original vision of using Darth Maul".
If so, then you really need to to look at the REASONS Lucas is continually revising the movies, and how much the Prequel Continuity means to him.
By my calculations, the odds of Lucas releasing the O-OT are 5,967,456,932 to 1.
there are a lot of people here who need to learn to be content with what we do have.
This sounds like something the white slavers used to say to the negro slaves. If they listened to people like you, they'd still be picking cotton.
