Lightsaber Cover-up

All of you novice star wars watchers hear this, I think I am the first to notice this, but in the first three movies that came out, they never showed the part where the saber turns off. They would always hold it below the screen and make the sound. It just goes to show ya, little things like that can be covered :l

Actually in Ep6 they show the sabers close down. In 4 and 5 they dont except for one scene in 4 where Luke shuts it off after training with the remote, except that it just disapears instead of going down.


May the Force be with you...

What does that exactly mean? Is it like those people who like Star Wars but aren't geeks?

Hmm...not sure calling Lynk a 'novice' Star Wars fan was a good idea...since he'd been here since '99, and you have only been around for a month or two.

Anywho...

It appears that you are the novice, as JediNyt stated, they show the sabers extinguish in Ep4 and Ep6.

uhmmm did you have any idea WHY? they did that?
its very simple.. the technique and other SF effets werent as far evolved as others.. so they had to do it 'creativly'.

i really dont mind.

You people are too touchy.

Ok, I really didnt mean to say novice, as I just meant to say it to people how have watched it 1 or 2 times. Don't take it personally.
And I wasn't putting Star Wars down either. Just taking my time to notify fellow star wars fans of the neat cover-up. No hard fealings-

Ah, I'll have non of that around hereIf you have a problem with someone personally, take it to PMs

I thought it was quite noticable in the OT. It's cause they had to cut from one shot to another. Quite funny compared to the technological capabilities of today lol We've come a long way in 30 years...
