Beautiful capture and DVD quality..I see they redid the saber fight.....no more off-blue and red glass rod looks.

Oh and the "cool TIE-Fighter noise" was moldeled after the WW2 Stuka Dive Bomber noise. As was the German helmet designs and european accents the empires officers had....i did a paper in college on this.

Watching the scene with Vader entering the ship among all the smoke while watching the movie in the theater will always stick with me. It was the coolest. I think I was about twelve at the time.

BTW, I liked Corvette Summer. The black Trans Am with the Formula hood and side pipes was SAWEET.

I was 12 when this movie came out. Saw it on opening day.

Those who were that age or older will remember that most movies (and the general post-Vietnam cultural ambience) back then were anti-heroic and dwelt on how bad things were. Fighting was portrayed as futile. You were going to lose, period.

Star Wars totally reversed that. It was positive. Fighting for what you believed in was OK. That last scene with the heroes getting the medals would have been laughable and unthinkable in most Hollywood products.

Thank you George Lucas.

Just finished it and Empire Strike Back.

Ahhh the memories.



Amen. It was the best o the three....


I just wish they didn't renumber them cause there is not fucking way I'm getting Phantom Menace or whatever that second piece of crap was called.


Please! I'm not even over the fact that Han and Greedo fire at each other and that the grand douchbag Christensen shows up at the end of Jedi. Don't even get me started on the other three which, aside from the saber duels, suck tauntaun balls....

PWNED!!!!!!

I think they could have done a bit more work on removing the green boxes around the Tie fighters when they attack the Millenium Falcon when it leaves the Death Star earlier in the film (they were VERY apparent on my TV, as well as on the Death Star in ROTJ), the Jabba's Palace musical should have been cut, and Jabba in ANH was too soft and looked pretty damn fake, IMO.

Watching the fourth disc with the documentary was very interesting. I had never seen the footage of Prowse without James Earl Jones dubbed over him before. I definitely think it was a good call overdubbing, because he just didn't have the type of voice that made Vader menacing.

Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

Solo shoots first.

Great stills and I see that you watched the "extra" DVD. Fascinating to hear Darth Vader speaking in a whiney English accent and to hear Chewbacca speaking English! Also interesting that the blasters made a popping noise!

I could be mistaken but I think "Star Wars" was labled "Episode IV" when I saw it in theaters in 1977.
Link Posted: 9/23/2004 4:14:22 AM EST
IIRC, the first movie was relabled "Episode III - A New Hope" after it was re-released in theaters.

The original release was simply "Star Wars".

Granted that ep1 and 2 sucked sandpeople balls, I will eventually buy ep2 just for the crazy ass yoda lightsaber battle.


That got my blood pumping like the first time I heard the mortal kombat theme in Dolby Digital with a big ass bucket of popcorn.

First movie I remember seeing in the theater. I was 7.

I took my oldest daughters to see the re-release on the big screen, opening day. Very good memories both back in the late 70s and now!

I downloaded the 1977- trilogy last week and they're going to DVD as soon as my blanks show up in the mail. Trying to find the 1997 trilogy... Already bought the 2004 trilogy. I wonder how much more Lucas will "update" it when he put them to HD-DVD.
Link Posted: 9/23/2004 7:41:25 AM EST
A buddy of mine will use his DVD burner to put the THX version on discs.

We both own the THX version, so copyright isn't a problem. We just each want a copy for archival purposes, so that we can show our children and grandchildren the REAL Star Wars, without

Greedo shooting first
The stupid and lame "Jabba, you're a wonderful human being" scene
"Prepare my Star Destroyer for my arrival" instead of "Bring my shuttle!"
The stupid ring around the exploding Death Star

I'll pay the $7.50 to see Epissode III, but it's just for a sense of completeness. I'm certain it will be awful.

Yes. Furthermore, when Han cops a feel when Leia is hit by blaster fire on the Endor Moon. He grabs her to pull her up and he gives her a reach around.

I credit the original 3 Star Wars movies as my inspiration to learn to draw... which lead to what I do now for a living. I was utterly blown away by each of the movies in different ways... and have been hoping for a DVD release of them since I got a player. This is a long time in coming, and I really look forward to popping them in the player, new scenes and all. I heard they added the Biggs scenes back in -- I had a kid's SW Storybook back in the day and it had the Biggs plotline in it, but when I saw the flick I was like "Where's Biggs???" Now that I think about it, the movie novelization might have been the first "real" book I ever read. I was 6 in '77, saw the movie in the Fall of that year.

FYI there's a website called "leiasmetalbikini.com" that has tons of pics of her in the outfit. And of some other nice looking chicks dressed in replicas of that outfit.
