So there's some rioting, and sending intergalactic stormtroopers is London's reaction.

Don't think that will scare them into submission, everybody knows they can't hit anything.

Blue ray, you say...?

Surely the influence of BT will turn the beam red...

Oh not again?

Another SW release, another dreadful rehash, no doubt the first of many re-re-re-re-re-re-releases and yet more money in Mr Lucas' pocket. I saw them when I was a kid, watched them once or twice with the kids on DVD but despite being a sad IT geek, I just cannot muster the enthusiasm I was once able to as a kid when SW meant something.

Might pop along to take some snaps of the tower though.

Would that be....

......the Complete Saga of 6 out of the originally planned 9 movies? Ah yes, that Complete Saga.

I recall reading, in the official SW magazine many many moons ago

that in fact there were 12 films intended for the saga.

Sad that I can recall this better than more important information.

That would all depend on which revision of history you listen to.

My favourite is the one where Lucas decided to make IV first in order to get a contract for three more movies, but the studio didn't like the idea of his prequels and signed him up for two sequels instead.

I often wonder if he deliberately made Return of the Jedi totally lame on purpose in order to try to discourage the studio from asking him to make VII.

"And then they race to the AT-AT defended forest base on hover-bikes"

"Good, we can see that one going well with the audience. What then?"

"Well, they run into the bunker at the back of the base, shoot the bad guys and plant a load of explosives!"

"Well now, this sounds excellent! What happens next?"

"The bad guys are attacked by enemies from the depths of hell! Real vicious bastards, lurking in the shadow of the Sith for milennia."

"Excellent! Wow, I can't wait to see the NEXT 3 films!"

"3 more, you say? That does sound like a lot of work... Yeah.... we may need to replace the evil enemies with care bears."

They need to re edit star wars

so that jar jar binks gets the good news from a light sabre within 5 seconds of his first appearance or has his head bitten off by a wookie.

Even better,

Qui Gon jumps at him to save him, and he lands on a landmine- killing Jar Jar in a dramatic, bloody manner from which he can never return but somehow leaving QuiGon unharmed. :)

I hear that as part of the festivities they're having Boris dress up as Old Wanky Knobby with Ken Livingstone as the Emperor. Should lead for some fun if they go at each other with lightsabers drawn; with Boris's history with loose women though, I'd expect his sword will have a green end.

What I find most interesting is that the UK release is first... makes a nice change from things like the Space Marine game where we got it last despite WH40K being a thoroughly British phenomenon, among many other examples.

Yay for us being first for once.

Excellent

Another opportunity to buy the same filem I have paid for at the cinema, on vhs, DVD, re-mastered DVD and now Blu ray.

I do hope they will continue to take the same source material and keep finding new ways to persuade me to pay for it again.

Stromtroopers

Brave buggers I'll give them that. I'll be stuffed if I'd ever get on a Tube train carrying anything that even remotely resembled a gun, not with the Met around.
