"You don't know the power of the dark side! I must obey my master"
Time
Anakin was slowly seduced by the darkside for years. He started towards that cliff the moment his mother died, and he wiped out the entire Tusken Village. In the end, Palpy was just making him finally walk off the cliff in ROTS.
After Mustafar, Vader certainly must have felt in debt to the man who "rescued" him. (Especially since Obi Wan left him to fry!) I doubt he seriously thought about taking his master out again until Luke came along.

X0 Equivalent for vcr's?

I can recommend the Panasonic AG-1980. Having the TBC built in and the video noise reduction are a godsend on regular VHS tapes. In the nine years I've owned one, only a handful of tapes gave me any playback headaches. It's a damn shame they don't make them anymore. Panasonic's current prosumer line looks like consumer decks at a costume party.

Star Wait

I sort of liked it. It's a kooky little slice of Star Wars mania we otherwise wouldn't see had it not been preserved. (I wish someone had made a documentary about the tenth anniversary SW con!) There was plenty of total ignorance elsewhere, especially in the media, about why they were camped out in line for so long, even more so for Episode III. I'm not sure what Lucasfilm will think of Target piggybacking this thing on the Episode III DVD release though. You just know some irate parent is going to miss the profanity warning on the label.
Those TFN guys may boast about trashing the DVD, but they're still out five bucks, aren't they?

5-25-77 is supposed to be based on the real life experiences of a young man who was so inspired by Star Wars, he sets off on a journey to meet the people that made it, and ends up at a certain converted warehouse in Van Nuys, California. It will be interesting to see what bits of Star Wars are glimpsed in the film. Since it's set in 1977, you can't simply throw the special edition in there.
