Torn.... To buy, or not to buy.
Time
one of the things I've noticed as an editor is that many of the added things on the SE could just be cut out if the original negative was truely altered in 1993. The only thing that would have to say in is the Mos Eisly conversation in the speeder, the shockwave effect from destroying Alderean and the wierd axis shift with the shockwave effect from destroying the Death Star. The stuff that stays could be covered with LD Stuff or even quality transfers from preserved prints. I could actually do this as an editor, all it takes is getting the equipment together and making the transfer one of quality.

New DVDs NOT 16x9
Time
guys, read the box art, it says WIDESCREEN at the top of all three of them. This story has got to be wrong. I don't read the bits that much so I won't trust them on this one. Remember, Lucas doesn't want these versions to out-sell his shiny SE. I think he had someone lie to the bits knowing that word would get out before the Sept. release. He's playing with our heads, just wait it out and see. Don't count your chickenss before they hatch.

How "original" do you think it is going to be...? (the 2006 GOUT DVD release)
Time
oh so that's why I could see mattes around those ships that i didn't see pre-2004! They cleaned it up too good. heh, I didn't think that was possible, but it looks lik it is. I guess after reading gaffers comments, I'd like the thing cleaned up minimally for grain and age. Leave the rest alone. The only other thing would be color. Make sure that the color and resolution are right.

ITS HAPPENED-- OOT AVAILABLE FROM LUCASFILM
Time
I think in the future this is how it's going to work: Lucas will want to release his versions first, and then he will release the original original after that. I think this release is a glimpse of things to come. Sure the transfer may not be totally spot on, but what transfer really is all at once? I never really hated Lucas, I just wondered why he did it this way to begin with. Did his kids really want to see what he originally had in mind or did he alter it out of spite for his ex-wife. Whatever the reason, what's done is done and in the past. I see this release as a step in the right direction for George. I think when all is said and done, he'll want to really be rembered for the O-OT.

I really think now that the O-OT will not only come out on dvd, but hd-dvd and blu-ray. I think we as the fans just need to be patient and George will come around to making the 5.1 mix for the unaltered trilogy, along with a really outstanding picture quality.

MSN's "Do nice guys always finish last?"
Time
Well, I haven't really been looking around for anybody to get to know. My life is pretty much this, work, sleep, eat, and on my days off, I just stay home and relax. Some interesting characters do show up at the store but there's never time to talk to them.

I really only have two friends right now and they are both moving out west. I'm really hoping for this new job not only for the job but for the envorment. Lotsa people my age in there. Well, I also haven't been really looking for a girl. Do you necessarily have to pursue a girl? I've heard some guys say that they come when you least expect it. They come when your not looking around for one.

Well, I also consider myself a nice guy. The problem with me, at least I think it is, seems to be that I can't tell when a girl actually likes me. I never could pick up the "signals' and all that stuff. Besides, after seeing the way some girls treat guys, it almost seems like it would be better not to be around them and just enjoy my own company.
