Well, dead only if rehash something is mortal, heh. It means that something about a certain issue has been done so many times before it's useless. I guess that it means just another gimmick to sell more of the same under a different guise.

What Blu-ray (and other HD media formats) has done is allowed movies to be viewed in (relatively) as close to as it would come watching the actual master copy of a movie itself. It also does away with those ye olden video and colour standards NTSC, PAL, SECAM and all that crap.
While true, unfortunately low-end filming as present is still going to take awhile to catch up from that era. As I am learning presently in my videography class. Though it has come quite a ways since even just 10 years ago. Guess even the low end reaches a point of cutoff.

Hm, a reader laser of a higher frequency than red to infrared, carrying more data per microsecond, allowing fuller and more vibrant definition of the classic movies and such you already enjoy. No, I'd just call it an improvement of existing disc technology.

I think most cynics just simply want to see Star Wars viewed looking back from the future, with a measure of dignity while most proponents just want to enjoy it again but in a fuller manner.

Well, if it makes you feel any better, when the blu-ray machine finally breaks you can take the laser diode out of it and make yourself an indigo beam laser pointer out of it.

I do agree it is somewhere around pointless to shell out extra moneys. Still, it's a matter of preference. If they want to spend the money that's their prerogative. Look on the bright side: lower demand for a cheaper alternative means more for us to enjoy!

@ GTA: What do you mean it's going to take a long time for "low-end" films to catch up? You can take 1080p @ 24fps video with home video cameras nowadays and edit it all together on a moderately powerful PC very easily.

Since people are able to create master copies in 1080p, digitally capture them in an uncompressed format and then edit them on their PCs, there really is no limit to what people can do with film nowadays. The only thing they really need is time and effort to do it...

I mean it's going to take a long time (relatively speaking of course) before blu-ray is the average standard and not the higher end, though I do agree it's much easier than having to deal with PAL, NTSC and all those other formats. Granted yes it's only a minor inconvenience, but still just kind of frustrating.

It's been rather a pain jumping from 1997 to 2009 cameras.

Hard to say. You already have the 3DS and 3D phones. Wouldn't be surprised if 3D becomes the UI standard for handheld devices in the future. As for the bigger screen - while one guy who's seen 3D once may not be impressed by it later, there will always be more and more people who haven't seen 3D before and want to see now (which is the principle reason why this 3D fad keeps reappearing every other decade).

I think that is selling it a bit short, IMO. Part of the problem is that sometimes it is done very well (Avatar), or poorly as an afterthought (Clash of the Titans).

Or it's just awesome.
Watch Jackass 3D. Do it now!
3D - Poo Cocktail Bungee Porto Potty.

I don't see why some of the 'older' folk around here see this as a problem.
It means our beloved franchise will be re-released with new effects. The acting performances stay the same. No canon is raped. The action scenes will just be pumped up to an awesome level.
Plus, a new generation of kids is raised with the original trilogy.

It'll be better then al those "ANNIKON PWNED OBI-WON. ASOKKA IS HWAT" fanboys the prequel trilogy and Clone Wars multi-media madness has created.

in my case, my old eyes can't see 3D films. I'm one of the few percentages of people that the 3D tech doesn't work. Well, other than triggering my migraines

Other than that, imo, the 3D is gimmicky. It's fine for films that were developed for it (again Avatar).. but rehashing old films "just for the sake of 3D" is a pure & simple cash-in. imo of course.

Of course, agreed.
Lucas probably couldn't afford to buy his own country yet, it reeks of shameless franchise milking. But after seeing a 3D movie myself, I (perhaps wrongfully) hope ILM can make something decent out of it. ILM is still the best there is and most 'bad' 3D movies didn't have ILM supporting them.

Question though, does the Nintendo 3DS technique do work for you? I heard about the headaches, but never about it not working at all.

I'm quite sure that if you watched the trilogies again you would see that Obi-Wan pwned Anakin in the PT and Anakin pwned Obi-Wan in the OT, not the other way around.

Obi pwned anakin because anakin was an emo idiot...and and Obi-Wan is still a pseudo jesus christ wannabee.

Take a nice little trip over theforce.net forums and read the highly eloquent prose archived there, bring an alcoholic beverage to dull your mind a bit so you may enjoy the humor behind sperg without wondering why you would ever read it in the first place.

Honestly don't know, I haven't tried.. or rather, don't feel like risking it.

My migraines are the "shut out the world, kill any hint of light/sound and for goodness sake don't move your head or you'll be projectile vomiting all day long" kind. Real cripplers

As for it not working, it only affects around 10% of the population, but I've had gimped eyes ever since I can remember.. hehehe. I've been told it's correctable, but I'm not really keen on seeking treatment just to spend more money on expensive toys

In order for 3D to work, both eyes have to be pointed in the same spot at the same time, and both eyes have to have good vision. People with a turned eye (turned in or out), or with lazy eye (amblyopia), or with only 1 eye (lost due to injury, disease, or birth defect) can't see the 3D effect that the rest of us 90% can.

Even people who have had surgery to correct a turned eye often don't ever have good 3D vision if they ever have it at all. The brain pathways that allow us to process stereopsis (the fancy term for depth perception) are laid down before age 2. If you miss that window of brain development, it's very hard to develop anything greater than very rudimentary depth perception/3D vision after that time.

/Jae's visual processing lesson for the day


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"
