    I was about to post that >=(

    I don't get why fans are butt hurt over George. They need to suck it up, go outside and remind themselves of the sun, trees, the sky, etc.

    I will probably see it, but I hate how the fans think that Lucas owes them something.

    You know what as much as I hated Lucas for ruining Star Wars I got over that a long time ago. People just need to let this go.

    Part of me would like to watch this to see if any of these people have, I don't know, a valid point.

    But I don't want to give these losers a penny of my money.

    It's because of the special editions. They added and changed various scenes. When Han doesn't shoot first, people get angry.

    Like that doesn't happen in this fandom either? There are plenty of Transformers fans that act like Hasbro and/or Michael Bay owe them something too.

    I personally don't really care for the "prequel" movies, but like someone else said, I got over it. But I can say that as someone who likes Star Wars, but it's not my main interest. For someone who it is their main interest, I can see some of the reasons why they get so upset.

    But on the other hand, you can't really blame Lucas for milking that franchise for all it's worth. It's not like he's the only director/creator to ever do it before.

    It's here at SXSW. My boss saw it. He pretty much confirmed what we all think. We all love star wars, and maybe some things didn't match what we imagined in the prequel, but these guys are WAY too serious.

    My only gripe with Lucas is making Han Shoot second. Not because of his reason, not because he's messing with cinema, but because it looked like shit. The technology was not there, and it looked like a horrible After Effects job. But even then, I love the movies, and I love clone wars. It's too much of an "Entertainment" to get that hurt over it. The guys in this movie truly make other SW fans look bad

    Also, the movie, which is pretty recent, indicates that Lucas sux for not providing the fans with the original movies, and that the only way to watch those is on VHS, which is bullshit because I own the DVDs that have the original (mono audio, no Jabba) in a two disc combo with the Special Editions.

    Every night I say a little prayer wishing for Lucas to go through the original series one more time and replace every single character with a Gungan.

    The OG versions have surround tracks from thier cinema releases, folks just think that they are only mono and stereo because they never bothered to port them over to home video.


    From a shop i'd imagine. They slapped the '93 laserdisc masters onto DVD as "extras" for the bullshit versions a few years ago to make it look like they were doing something about keeping them available, which was pretty much a pointless excercise because letterboxed transfers from 17 years ago look like shit on modern TVs.
