There might be a more relavent comment later, but right now I'm still reeling from that pun. Words fail. Fo'real, j0.
Told you, I did. The original DVDS, great they are. Jedi should be bought if for no other reason that to return Sebastian to the BAC.
As for another release with "real" sound? It'll probably be only available in Blu-Ray or HD-DVD, which means you'll have to buy new hardware.
Jedi should also be bought to remove the awful Muppet scream.
Good point about the hardware!
The muppet scream?
I know about the scream that was added to ESB:SE...what was added to Jedi?
In Jabba's palace when one of the musicians goes all big-mouth muppety into the camera. It's horrible.
Thank you for reminding me of that abomination. There are so many ways in which the original Jedi is superior to the SE, and the entire Jabba sequence is one of them. Lapti Nek kicks the other bit to the curb.
Sorry to create you pain.
You're more than welcome. Even though Adam couldn't figure out WHY there was another copy of that in the house and when I told him that I got it for your birthday he echoed Ferrett to the nth degree. I told him to shut it!
Yes, mother's day. You have 2 children.....Works out well doesn't it?
Yesssss. The plan is swelling in me now!
I know exactly how you feel. Due to principle, I really didn't want to buy the trilogy, but I really wanted to own it, just in case Lucas wasn't lying about this being the only way to get the original movies. Fortunately my mother got all three of them for me for X-Mas.
They are getting exceedingly "thin on the ground" out there. I'm nervous.
On the plus side they still seem pretty widely available on-line. Even if traditional retail outlets dry up there are dozens of sealed discs for sale in the Amazon marketplace, Half.com and eBay (and usually at below retail).
Oh, good to know. Thanks!
(Now I just need to convince someone to buy them for me!)
Surely not quite that long! Or, maybe...yeah. Wow.
That was purchase #2
I still have them.
I passed on the THX pan-and-scans, having seen the letterbox light. And then I refrained until the SE DVDs.
You are a sick, twisted man.
That's why we all look up to you.
Hero worship can happen on discrete levels.
Yah, I have to second minch there....lessee, how many versions does the Mayday have?
1)Hologram Cover Boxed set vhs
2)THX VHS set
3)Super-death laserdisc set with all the extras
4)Special Edition VHS Widescreen
5)Special Edition VHS regular edition (bought on the cheap for the send away 3PO toy. Note that if one puts these sets side by side, you get a full pic of Father's face.)
6)DVD Boxed Set of New, improved Special Editions (bought for us by the wife)
7)The latest DVD release with the original cuts
Note that that doesn't include my taped-off-HBO set from before I could afford to buy 'em!
Then we have Episode I...
1)VHS Boxed Set
Episodes II and III, all I have are the DVDs.
I also have 2 VHS bootlegs of Ep I, a VCD 2-disc bootleg of Ep II, and THREE boots of Ep III-the infamous "Backstroke of the West" version on VHS, the work print with timecode (and slightly off aspect ratio) on 2-disc VCD, and a DVD complete with menus.
I am WAYYY too geeky to live! (And you don't even WANT to know how many different versions of the comic adaptations I've dropped my hard earned money on LOL)
I feel so much better now. Thank you for out-geeking me.
I have a bootleg Star Wars Holiday Special DVD.
OH stop everybody!!

You fool, you fool.
(So do we, of course.)
2007-05-05 01:57 pm (UTC)
Heh, forgot to add that to the list.
Do ya have the Ewok movies, he queries? Droids? Clone wars even? (I lack all those on DVD, sadly....I need to stop buying comics and get out there and donate to the Lucas fund some more!)
2007-05-05 01:59 pm (UTC)
Do not have Ewok movies [shudder] or Droids, but do have Clone Wars, which are the best thing that came out of the prequels.
Heh, not a one. All opened, all watched (save for Special Ed. pan & scan set-that was only opened to take out the proof-of-purchase for the sendaway)
BTW, if I came off as trying for one-upmanship here, I apologise...it just struck me as funny how many times I actually went back to the well on these films.
Also, would ya buy the Holiday Special if they released it on DVD? I would, but then, GEEK as seen above LOL.
I would, too. But it will never happen.
I just realized-you replied to that immediately, so are obviously online right now....are you and Ferret doing Free Comic Book day? Reason I ask is, I'm gonna be at York Comics on Pleasant Valley and York roads, and it would be cool if we happened to run into each other!
I didn't even know it was free comic book day! If we went, we'd be going to John and Carol's at Kamm's Corners. I didn't even know about York Comics.
Ah. John and Carols is like a sister store to York. The owners have sort of their own lil' comic mafia goin on.
As it is, I'm now racing out of here to work - the joy of entepreneurship!
Try Moosebutter.com for a new taste treat. (Sorry, I don't know how to do actual links) They sing wonderful songs about Star Wars, Harry Potter,and other geeky stuff, in gorgeous harmony!
Looks interesting - I will keep an eye out for them!
Junkies unite. ;) My parents have no idea why I own three versions of the SW trilogy, but I know the next time one comes out, I'll fork up the dough. Doesn't matter if there's nothing new on it; doesn't matter if it's a marketing gimmick; doesn't matter if it says "GEORGE LUCAS OWNS YOUR SOUL" in day-glo letters. *sigh*
Sistah! I have a
twin okay, much younger sistah!!!
Did you see Clerks 2?
How did you feel about the debate about *the* trilogy between SW and LotR?
No, I haven't seen it! Now I must.
