I like all these extras such as commentary, pics and more, but I only watch the trailers and deleted scenes, I ignore the rest, I might have a quick look at the art or watch the documentaries after a month of purchasing the DVD on a boring day but thats it, I still haven't seen all the extras on most of my DVDs.

Not being rude or anything, but I am quiet suprised you haven't got it yet.

GET IT GET IT GET IT GET IT GET IT GET IT

So many extras and lots of deleted scenes, and the menu changes randomly showing scense of the movie everytime you put the DVD in.

By the way GET IT

And you call yourself a Star Wars fan!

Just kidding man, but it's certainly worth going out and picking up. The deleted scenes really aren't all that special, in my opinion anyway, but the extras and docus are simply great.

About how long was each one of those "Making episode II" documentaries??? Is it going to be as cool as the making of TPM?

I'm excited about the release date, just before my birthday:D

Does anybody know when they are coming out with the OT on DVD? I saw another thread with links to Ebay but I don't think those are official DVD's or whatever they are! And talking about DVD's that are coming out isen't anybody looking forward to Blade II coming out on DVD? That was one of the best movies that came out this year! Or am I alone on this subject?

I wouldn't go so far as to say one of the best that came out.....it was really good.....but not on par with AotC, Goldmember, Signs..Those were wonderfully awesome movies.

The OT is supposed to come out on DVD sometime after episode 3 comes out, because they're re-doing the OT again, and when they do that it'll be put onto DVD!:D

well.......nobody says it better than ET Warrior...:p


(I'm just joking to any who wouldn't know otherwise, i donot have a huge ego, in fact, my ego is very small, derived from the fact that i have low self-esteem induced by my extreme addiction/obsession with star wars)

Hey I just hope we get to see that PK/KAM battle that you have in your sig ET Warrior. I heard that a lot of the Geonosis jedi battle was cut and it had some amazing action in it. Let's just hope we get to see some of it on the DVD.

If the action we want isn't included in the upcoming release.......who's to say that when GL is getting ready to redo the OT for DVD that he won't go back and fix up 1 thru 3 a little.......just a thought :D

Cripes people have made a religion out of hating Jar Jar. I like him. Ya here comes the flames:flamethrofrom the crazy people. Now no one has to like him. Its ok not to like someone ya he might get on your nerves for one reason or another but this whole ****ing hatred of him is wacked. What about Threepio? Hes annoying. For the last time JAR JAR IS NOT A ****ING HUMAN! HES A GUNGAN AND GUNGANS ARE AMPIBIANS AND ARE NOT LIKE US! THEY ARE ALIENS! HOW THE **** DO YOU EXPECT THEM TO ACT?! HUMAN? AH thats the first thing that popped into your head isnt it? They dont act human. So you hate them. No. Your smart people. Be open minded. If you still dont like their quirks, ok then. No prob. Leave it at that.;)

I dont know why you wrote what you did in this thread Darkjedinut, but ill respond with the same post I had in the SW humor thread:

The Gungan race doesnt bother me. Just Jar Jar. He seems to be the only one that talks like a high pitched banshee. His "in your face" style doesnt help either. I mean his own people kicked him out cause he was clumsy and annoying. His own people!
Obviously he was annoying even to a gungan.

Thank you MotionMan...:)

You know DarkJediNut I think you probably realize that there are more people out there who hate Jar Jar but like the rest of the gungans (see my humor thread). So you should just stop with your little crusade to have everybody like Jar Jar......it just isn't going to happen:( .

I like Jawas, Kel Dor, Twi'Leks, Hutts, Rodians, Dugs, Kaminoans, Geonosians, zabraks, and every other race presented on the jedi council. I like the gungans as well. I hate JarJar. That's all there is to it.



I agree with motion man. JarJar is annoying as hell. I find C3PO to be more funny than annoying.

No need to be throwin the F-bomb around...we're not dumb, you could get your point across without excessive cursing and typing in caps..:roleyess: <- (I use that smilie more and more these days..)

Hey, I like Darth Maul too....

You know, I didn't mean to get people all stirred up about the jar jar thing. So, I apologize to you DarkJediNut. I just thought it was pretty funny.
