Damn George Lucas!

Post by markgunnells on Sun Aug 28, 2011 7:23 am

The original Star Wars trilogy is coming out on BluRay and I hear George Lucas still can't stop tinkering with the damn movies. Or as I call it, ruining them. Now I hear he's replacing puppet Yoda with the CGI one from the prequels. FUCK CGI Yoda!!!! We're talking three classic fun sci-fi adventure films, and Lucas can't leave them alone. At this point I feel that if I wanted to find the films as they were originally released it would be a scavenger hunt. Every change he makes, he kills a bit more of the magic and makes me less interested in these movies I used to love.

That just guarantees I won't be getting them. I would like to upgrade my VHS tapes at some point, but CGI Yoda is a deal breaker. batter

I would love to get them on DVD at least, but the set that includes the original untampered with versions are too expensive for me.

Well, I don't know where you heard the rumour but by now you should know the rumour was just that. I have the Blu-rays (childhood memories of seeing the originals when they were first released remain reassuringly intact) and jolly good they are, too. Yoda remains the muppet we all know and love.

So, will you be taking back your damnation of Mr Lucas now?!

Oh, and that set that includes the original versions of the original trilogy is cheap as chips now so happy shopping Smile

No worries. I know Lucas is contradictory to the nth degree so quoting him is always a bit risky but he has said he would "never" replace the muppet with a CGI version. And for this alone we can breath a sigh of relief.

Yeah... there's lots of other reasons to be disappointed with him. I'm still a bit miffed over the musical number he inserted into A New Hope.

Still... those first three movies are gold, and a lot of the updating that he did was good.

I don't remember any musical number being added to A New Hope. He did change the musical number in Return Of The Jedi, though. Just as well; the original was very eighties and sounded like something from a Jane Fonda workout video.

Ha. I saw that last week. Very cool vid.

As for ol' Georgie, isn't he one of those 2012ers? It would be rather funny if he was, considering all the time he puts into jiggering with his movies only for the world to end this year.

Well, he did use this year to announce his retirement from directing so maybe he knows something we don't...

I really don't keep up with pop music, so I don't know what song that is parodying... unsure

I agree with the content, though. headbang

Oh Nick. Sad

It's Gotye's "Somebody I Used to Know".




It has about four million parodies, and some are pretty awesome. But my favorite song of his is "Heart's a Mess."
