Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Tim Burton is better than the Mel Stuart 1971 version.

It was inevitable that at some point an opinion would come in so hot that it would get smoke in some eyes.
It was also inevitable that at some point an opinion would come in so absolutely foul that a reputation would be ruined.
Friends, I think we have both here.
A moment of silence, please.

Your quote is putting words in my mouth. 😉

FIXED!

I don’t need to explain myself.

Looks like Leia’s Hoth hairstyle may have been different originally, with two long dangling plaits instead of a crown braid.

It’s the same style, she just has the braids down in these pics.

that shot of Jeremy Bulloch with the helmet off is always how I want to envision Boba Fett really looks. Very Clint Eastwood. Forget Temuera Morrison and official cannon!

Yes!

For those of us who had the comics, novel, and storybook growing up, it was baffling that it wasn’t in the movie. As the radio drama expanded on it even more, you’d think Lucas would have reinstated those scenes in 1997. Putting the Biggs’ reunion/vouching for Luke’s piloting skills scene back in only pronounces their absence.

For sure. I loved the storybook!
Someday I’ll get around to putting the beer drinking scene back in as in my signature.

I really love the deleted Luke & Biggs scenes.
It’s the only time we get to see Luke being himself, comfortably, around people he knows & likes.
And I like this Luke. The scene with Luke n’ Biggs having a beer is just great. Luke is cool & funny. Makes me sad that this personal moment isn’t in the film & we never actually get to see who Luke really was. Just him whining to his uncle.

So many of those Hoth pics look like personal photos by random Rebels. I love it!
The one of the squadron with the laser turret looks like an official squadron group photo with the Sergeant off to the left. Could be framed with a plaque: Squadron 138 - North Ridge

I’d never seen or heard of R2 washing the X-Wing! I really wish that was in the film.
