Obviously, you weren't around much in 2008. It got that bad, and worse.

LF had to be nuked from orbit just to be sure. We're still living with the fallout.

Yeah, I think I skipped looking in here for most, if not all, of '08. Sounds like I dodged a bullet there. It might also explain why so many people hate Kavar's far more than I'd think people would normally hate a mildly combative subforum. Other than it not being about vidya, of course.

So my media lecturer was using Star Wars as an example for something and she came up with "It's like in Star Wars: Attack of the Jedi" ... and "Jar Jar Banks"... and she repeated "Jar Jar Banks" several times.

I haven't pre-ordered but I feel like I don't need to. It is Star Wars after all and they'll be shipping a tonne of the sets around the world so pretty much any store you walk into you'll stumble over a pile of them.

If they had announced some kind of limited edition set then I definitely would've preordered though.

Before pre-ordering something, I need to know what I'm going to buy, and it's content.

For once i agree with you Alex, its always irked me how they spent time and money to redo most scenes in the films but never bothered to make the lightsabers consistent (ie; white core, colored blur, and right color on right hilt etc)

Yes, I don't mind Mos Eisley either. At least it gives more scope to the spaceport, and makes it more active.

I like the additions to the various cityscapes, window shots etc, the only scene addition I dislike is the new musical Number in Jabba's Palace... the Original was much Better, Puppet Sy Snootles included

While I'm here...

Bad-
Sarlacc has a Beak, Jabba's Palace Musical, Han moving awkwardly to avoid Greedos blaster burst, Luke Screaming when falling from Bespin antenna (Fixed though in 2004 edit), CGI Jabba hanger scene, Lightsabers not fixed.

Good-
New celebration scenes and Music at the end of ROTJ, Ghost Hayden (Continuity), "Women with conjunctivitis" Emperor Palpatine Holo replaced with Ian McDiarmid in ESB, new Eisley entrance CGI, new window scenes in cloud city walkways... All I can remember up to now, been a while since I watched em all

As far as I'm concerned if you're freeze-framing to pick apart defects in the special effects... You're doing it wrong

I'm not. These special effects errors are the ones who make me freeze, not the other way around.

I wouldn't mind if we were talking about the original versions, but these are the SE. And these are defects that weren't there on past versions. Besides, what is the right way to show them, if not by pausing and printscreening?

Yeah, that lead X-Wing's engines thing has been around for as long as I can remember. It's on my VHS tapes of the unaltered OT. To me, at least, having it not like that would be very noticeable.

I do agree that the lightsabers are hideously FUBARed and extremely annoying. WTH were they thinking?



And it just occurred to me that, after releasing the excellent Star Wars Revisited fan edit, poor Adywan is going to have to go back and give the same treatment to the BluRay version.

Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."

Are you guys kidding me? Mos Eisley's intro was TERRIBLE. Was was a cluster**** on-screen where they just decided to pack as much stuff onto the frame as possible for no reason. If they're going to have the intro they need to redo it to do a better job of it.

Not all of the special edition additions were terrible, but there are obvious offenders that need to be updated.

That's true. But why put on every fighter except one? I just noticed it for the sake of consistency.
