Yes, Jedi rocks kills me. Thats the Jabba's Palace dance dumber song.
As far as I can tell, that's simply not true. At the time when the new editions were first released, many people were actually quite enthusiastic about the added CGI. After all, back then, the CGI didn't look dated and dumb, it looked new and well-polished. By contrast, anybody on record (which, admittedly, is still a tiny fraction of the viewing public) objected to Han being shot at.The "Han shot first!" argument always feels to me more like an audience looking to legitimize their general dislike for the changes by drilling down until they locked in on a change that could feel academic rather than glossy. Does it make sense that Han would shoot first? Yes. Was it something anyone was especially concerned with before we crowdsourced the complaint about it and in so doing legitimized criticism of all the edits beyond our innate feeling that the CGI looks kind of dumb? Not really.
Well, there are some weird things in the special editions. Here's an interesting video, I agree with most points
Strange but true: the "Jedi Rocks" track (as well as the Ewok Celebration) were originally not going to be changed to CG, but an issue with music rights made it less expensive to do it all over than to pay the person who was holding out.
Is that true? It looks like both Lapti Nek and Ewok Celebration were written by John Williams, and performed by Lucasfilm employees. Here's an interesting article on the former, which claims the original version was used in the film because Lucas was having an affair with the employee who sang it: http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/The-Surprisingly-Strange-Story-of-Lapti-Nek/id/14770
Btw, Loaf. Did u end up liking episode 7? I thougjt it was pretty damn fantastic.
It was me I will start the topic tonight at 9 30I suppose you've all heard the news by now - Episode VIII is delayed until December, 2017. That doesn't especially bother me, as I'm all for taking extra time for a better finished product (Star Citizen fans throw tomatoes.) And really 18 months between 'episodes' seemed a little too good to be true, anyway!
To the person who suggested doing Rebels comment threads - yes, lets! Looking forward to tonight's Princess Leia episode. (Sadly everyone at CIG has the flu this week, or we'd make a bigger deal out of it coming back here.)
Nice lol. I wathed it 3 times and each time it got better for me. After the first watch I was confused (was this the best star wars ever? Am i just on a movie high?) but after the 3rd watch it was clear that I love this movie and can't wait to get it on blu ray and watch it a bunch more!Apologies for missing this one! Yes I did end up truly loving it. I'd be seeing it once a week if the AMC down the street from my apartment hadn't bizarrely decided not to show it.
