Feuer und EisI remember people always complaining about the Ewok zippers and glaring film grain on the Death Star scenes. I didn't believe that shit until I saw the '97 re-release in theaters. It looked like it was goddamn raining in the Death Star with all that film grain. Dude CGIed in all sorts of shit, but couldn't fix the damn grain? C'mon now!


That was something I never understood about the re-releases. They add some footage (Jabba, celebrating the fall of the Empire, etc.) yet don't include other footage (Biggs and Luke talking in Anchorhead) and don't fix simple mistakes like the lightsabers in the duel between Vader and Kenobi. It's just so goddam inconsistent. Either go all in and make it look as good as you can and include as much as you can or don't fucking do it at all.

Adding a couple of rontos and rocks to a scene isn't going to make the movie better. If anything it's jamming 10 pounds of crap in a five pound bag. It's like The Hobbit - they create new characters and add extra scenes to a story that didn't need it. It got by on the strength of the story, not by adding the Necromancer and the spice worms.

Coincidentally the name of my Iron Maiden cover band is Necromancer and the Spice Worms.

PenarinWow, and here I thought that was added later during all the meddling with the original trilogy.

Where does a person go to watch the despecialized versions? ?Keep in mind I do not have l33t haxxor skills. ?

I believe I have a link to a site that has archives of the various editions, including the original cuts and fan-modified ones. I'll post it when I get home.

3. Porky's
4. Fast Times at Ridgemont High
5. She's All That


The last one is just a personal fave.

I love me some Porky's!!! One thing about having older brothers was getting to see Rated R comedies that I had no business watching at 8 years old.
No way could they make a movie like Porky's nowadays with the PC brigade in full effect.

Oh, Dammit... yeah, I would have included Porky's in my list, too. I even like the first sequel.

PenarinThat's interesting about the different film stock. ?Somehow I never really noticed the different look. Will have to fire it up soon.

As for some of the dumb stuff that Lucas added, wasn't there a shot of a distant desert city, where suddenly we just had to have a small creature walk into the lower left edge of the frame and burp??

It's a shot of Jabba's palace and you see the frog-looking thing outside, which eats some other small desert creature and burps.
Although that was from the original and not an add-on in the Special Edition, IIRC.

That's right. It was a puppet, and the creature is called a "worrt," apparently.

Spencie ReturnsYeah, I was not happy to hear the news. What's worse is how much support I've seen from the internet elsewhere. JJ's style was serviceable for kick starting a new era of Star Wars with a safe and fluffy retread, but giving the man control of the finale is a terrible idea. Resolutions are his kryptonite, but people are going to eat it up regardless. Say what you will about Abrams, the man knows how to hide shoddy storytelling under charismatic performances and smooth direction.

This is really terrible news. JJ has his head up his own ass to a degree that no one can help him see the sun.

That would explain the lens flares.
