A message to Jay in regards to DanielB
Time

Many have given so much here - from contributing to posts on these boards so that they stay fresh and interesting, to sharing info, ideas and tips on how to ensure an even superior quality release of the OT on dvd than the previous two standardbearers.

To seemingly question, ridicule and judge the few selfless determined yet generous people that want to ensure the above happens - at cost of exhaustive time, effort and money at the expense of their family & friends - as well as themselves, is simply not on.

These few have given their valued opinions on how best to acheive this goal - should anyone not agree with the content or details of or in the product then surely the information is now available on here so that they can start their own version - without feeling the need to criticise others' efforts, especially when they have no effort of their own to offer.

Hey, Mike has been good enough to come on here and offer and share information on what he is doing, how he is doing it etc.

So much interest in his set that he created a site that even people like me (with no technical expertise or knowledge) can follow and appreciate the difficulties in what Mike, Gonzo, TR47, Zion, Laserman, MBJ and others here are doing.

Mike's site itself has probably seen him slow down on actually working his set - but hey, he's still doing it, all for free.

and now he's getting hassle for it?


I can now understand why some people come here and think we're a bunch right of shitehawks

^ of course, George could of given himself a break and released the cinematic versions with the 2004 version - or earnt a fair few more £££ by releasing them seperately.



oh, and hire a decent Quality Control and PR department too!



Imagine Prowse filming SW in his Vader suite and mask - sucking apple scrumpy through a straw... "you're my new best mate you are... hic... Look, Stop, Listen when crossing the road Obi Wan..."

DVD Packaging

As for the art on the front of the dvd boxes - I've seen a lot better here and other cover sites.

Some of these sites are no longer around due to Lucasfilm and other large companies seemingly being too embarrassed by what fans with some relatively cheap home software can accomplish...

I havn't got the 2004 DVD set, but have obviously seen them on the shop shelves, have to say quite disappointing compared to The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy boxsets out there.

Info: Original Trilogy on UK Terrestrial TV?

ANH has just been on - deffo the 97SE version

Watching it again, I can't believe what a wuss Wedge is when he gets hit in the Death Star Trench Run!

He could have stayed with them instead of bailing out - acting as another ship for the 3 Imperial Ships to shoot at, or took one for the team, or even slammed on the brakes for the following ships to hit him!

Wedge = Wuss

SerVente - the changing colours of the lightsabres didn't annoy you - afterall they've had years to get it right and couldn't even do it for the dvd release?

or the boxes surrounding the TIE Fighters after the Mill Falcon's escape from the Death Star?

the different shading between shots of the same screen?


For some people not only was it disappointing not to get the Original Original Trilogy on dvd, but the effects were not much better than those done back in the day.

Very lazily executed dvds
