Blue Thunder (1983) - these releases contain one additional scene not included on the DVD/Blu-ray versions.

More than one scene: 😃

If you mean that one shot that’s shown earlier then your right.

Do all the LDs contain the extended version? I thought it was just the pan and scan releases?

Where did you hear that it was only the Pan & Scan releases?

Another entry for your list is Explorers. The 80s home video releases were re-edited by Dante apparently and they include scenes that are not present in the DVD-Blu-ray theatrical version.

Thanks, did all the VHS releases from the 80’s and 90’0s contain this scene?

To clarify, that scene is from the theatrical cut, which has only ever been released on VHS (CIC) in PAL European countries and that was during the 80s/90s. The theatrical cut airs on UK TV fairly regularly.

Explorers UK VHS

Explorers UK VHS II

The current worldwide DVD release by Paramount uses the Dante re-edited “Special Home Version” that was released in the US on LD, VHS and Beta during the 80s.

See below for a thorough discussion of the differences. 😃

Regarding Blue Thunder, I looked into purchasing the US NTSC W/S LD a while back but the one I saw for sale on eBay appeared to have the theatrical running time. This is why I suspected that only the early pan and scan versions contain the additional scenes.

Another entry for your list is, The Charge of the Light Brigade (1968).

All current DVDs use the U.S. cut, which is shorter by 7 minutes. There was a 1992 UK VHS release that featured the original full length version. Whenever it airs on TV, I’ve recorded it, in the hope that the full length version might turn up but nothing so far.

OK, added.

Is the 1992 UK VHS of The Charge of the Light Brigade the longest version available?

Found an upgrade of the European version on LD.

Does Vader fundamentally misunderstand what it means to be a Jedi?

Please take into account that the PT/ST didn’t exist when these scenes were created.

In ROTJ after Luke turns himself in on Endor, Vader admires his lightsaber saying “I see you have constructed a new lightsaber. Your training is complete” This would mean that constructing a lightsaber requires use of the Force:

The quote is "I see you have constructed a new lightsaber. Your skills are complete. ", not “your training”.

Please take into account that the continuity of the PT/ST didn’t exist when these scenes were created.

In ROTJ after Luke turns himself in on Endor, Vader admires his lightsaber saying “I see you have constructed a new lightsaber. Your training is complete” This would mean that constructing a lightsaber requires use of the Force: they cannot be mass-produced, and such control of the Force is only achieved toward the end of a Jedi’s training. More importantly, it also shows how little Vader understands about becoming a Jedi; in ANH he says to Obi-Wan “I was but the learner now I am the master”. And in ROTJ on Dagoba, Yoda tells Luke that he’s learned all that he needs to know and Luke says “So I am a Jedi” then Yoda says “No, first you must face Vader”. So basically Luke has completed the classroom part of his Jedi training but becoming a Jedi requires an inward personal journey that’s emotional and spiritual. Vader doesn’t seem to understand this and may be under the impression that the classroom training is all that’s needed.

STAR WARS: EP IV 2004 <strong>REVISITED</strong> ADYWAN *<em>720p HD VERSION NOW IN PRODUCTION</em>

I’m also a fan of the enhanced ANH: Revisited Death Star plans. The red Death Star schematic as the image on the DVD disc is just perfect. My thought is have the plans somehow morph from the old '77 style to the AOTC style. Of course, the ideal solution is to just do a Rogue One: Revisited with ALL NEW DEATH STAR PLANS 😉.

I’m perfectly happy with him doing only an OT:R no matter how long it takes.

Tantive3+1, any updates on this?

We’ve reached $1100! Out of my own pocket I put in some money with the donations from you guys and from other Evil dead fans. We’re just $400 away from purchasing this but I can’t do it on my own anymore. I’ll need your guys help in making this happen. Any amount you can spare will be greatly appreciated.

The scenes between Han and Leia should be more intimate. Just a thought.

How would one accomplish this?

Cutting the love triangle shots like at the ending scene when he says “When he comes I won’t get in the way” for example. Remmove the dialogue sequences relating to it.

Evil Dead 2 (1987) 35MM Preservation
Time

I’m currently in the process of purchasing a 35MM theatrical print of the film Evil Dead 2 available for sale here

http://www.angelfire.com/or/raylearchive/#35

The full price needed to purchase this is $1500 with the shipping costs being covered out of my own pocket. I currently have $700 that I was able to raise from donations from some dedicated Evil Dead fans who are interested in seeing this project happen, but it’ll take a while longer to raise the rest of it on my own to have it purchased and scanned. If your also interested in seeing this project happen go ahead and send me a PM with any amount that your willing to donate. Hopefully we can make this happen as I’ll be doing some restoration work on the print myself.

If enough funds can be raised to help purchase this I will post an update on the scanning costs and we can go from there.

My answer is that Leia had no training & time was running out. I think Obi-Wan thought it would be too late to get Leia to the state she needed to be in to face Vader & overthrow the Emperor.

But the real reason is that the siblings thing is a bad retcon that created problems.

It was meant to be a love triangle. Thats why in the scene when Luke calls out to her she was able to hear him because deep down it was Luke who she truly loved, not because she was force sensitive.

I like to think that he was simply being reminded. During the Dagobah scene in ROTJ when Obi-wan tells Luke about his sister, his father, and why its his destiny to fight him, I find it important that he’s telling him what hes always known throught the OT and not what he found out from Yoda as a Force Ghost.

<strong>Return Of The Jedi</strong> - a General <strong>Random Thoughts</strong> thread

When Luke strikes Vader down the Emperor says to Luke that if he strikes Vader the final blow he’ll take his father’s place by his side meaning Luke would’ve given in to the dark side.

I never believed that Jedi’s kill, they only harm in self-defense with their lightsaber but if Luke had not thrown his lightsaber away and was able to deflect Palpatines Force lightning with his lightsaber and taken the Emperor down would he have still given in to the dark side?
