Going back to Natalie Portman - I don't think she is overrated - but boy was she undersold. Perhaps its her failure that she didn't come over very well during the films (unlike Samuel L - who can still look good in just about anything - and Ian McDiarmid who I think revelled in his role) but then there were several very fine actors who you watched and thought "hmm, I think they could have performed better there" or something - I think it's more to do with the script. Unfortunately for Padme I don't think we see the fiestiness of Leia in her at all. Well, maybe a little, but not really the kind of attitude that would bitch at her captors, then bitch at her would-be-rescuers. I actually think that Padme throught the prequels was closer to Leia in ROTJ, but I think I remember Carrie Fisher saying that she felt that her role in the third film was downgraded from the previous two and she didn't really like it - though I guess you could say that her character really does change as soon as she falls in love.
Oh anyway, I'm rambling...

I wish Padme was from the naked chick planet (Nubilus Boobage II, in the Hott! System) instead of Naboo, with those smelly floppy-eared retarded frog donkeys.   hmpf

I always wonder, what would've happened if Grevious had stayed alive long enough for the Jedi Purge?  Wold he had done a team up with Obi Wan just to survive from the Stormtroopers or what he had just been killed by them.

He wasn't a Jedi but he was still an enemy of the Republic, so they probably would have blasted his ass.
Sidious probably didn't give a shit about him since he had his eyes on Anakin as his new apprentice for so long.

I suppose that he would have tried to kill as many Jedi as he could before Vader got to them.  After that he would have had to find a new hobby.

*Mocks David A and his clearly inferior screen resolution*  tongue

Well I think the whole point is that Grevious' death would be a pre-requisite (spelling) of the purge, so Mace and that lot could go and say "right, you don't have to be here anymore" and Palpatine could go
"Oh, you wouldn't happen to be threatening me, now would you?" and etc etc etc.
Because Grevious was clearly a pawn in Palpatine's little war games and has his uses up to a point - at which point Palpatine expected him to die - I doubt Palpatine would have let him live - especially as some figures may see his continued existance as a source to continue Seperatism, and others would have seen his sudden love for the Republic cum Empire a little too coincidental. I'm sure Palpatine was happy to squash any uprising underfoot, but surely he would have recognised the benefits of stopping uprisings before they started.

That said, I have my own question - one of the questions flying about one of the KOTOR forums I go to is whether or not the user would personally have joined Revan and Malak and gone against the apparent will of the Order and left to take the fight to the Mandalorians. And by extension from that, the question arises whether or not the Jedi Order, as a whole, were just too pussyfooted to get involved properly or hated the idea of actually confronting the threat. Imagine the Jedi Order were unwilling to stand up against Palpatine forming an Empire?
How different would it have gone? Surely Palpatine couldn't really institute a Sith dominated galaxy with the Jedi just happily sitting around - because it just wouldn't work properly - but if he can't provoke the Jedi into anything, then he surely can't easily turn them into enemies of the state.
Very easy to be excused for saying "The Jedi tried to start a military coup and tried to kill me - so I'm going to kill them all!" than going "The Jedi sit around on their arse all day long - so I'm going to kill them all!"

Well, da?

Well, that's (sort of) unexpected.  I was going to go through the bother of capturing a cut of the original trilogy from a friend's laserdisc set, but I guess I won't have to now.  I can buy this set instead.

They should cut in her stripper scenes from Closer into episodes I-III, and maybe some CGI of her knockers! (If they can't pay her enough to do it)

How badly d'you think they had to beat Lucas to get him to agree to this?

That said, they are going to make so very much goddamned money.  They could charge a hundred bucks for this thing and still probably beat Episode III's DVD sales figures.

I must have it.

Oh, fucking orange monkies on a purple bamboo stick.

Why? No I have to plunk down another $70 for Star Wars. HAVE TO. I want the original cuts in some form other than burnt off VCDs. Why couldn't this have been the set released in 2004. :/

*Edit* Also, check this out. Not sure if it's been posted before.

I notice that they'll only be available for a limited time.  I wonder if Lucasfilm will change their minds about that when they see how well they sell.

Now if we could just get a DVD release of the Christmas special.   tongue

I'm well aware of his feelings about it, hence the smiley.  Still, I never thought he'd cave and allow the original trilogy to be released on DVD either, so anything is possible.

I think it stands for "I'm sticking my tounge out at you."  However, in that instance I was sticking my tounge out at George Lucas (figuratively speaking).

But this one's for you, Gocad:   tongue

First Look: Original Trilogy DVDs
May 16, 2006

The Star Wars trilogy comes out for a limited time as individual movie DVDs on September 12th -- complete with the unaltered original films as bonus material -- and will be available for pre-order starting this week. This is a chance for longtime fans to re-experience the movies as they originally played during their first theatrical releases, and an opportunity for new fans to see a bit of movie history.
Each movie comes as a two-disc set -- one disc is the 2004 remastered version of the film, while the second disc is a version that captures its original theatrical presentation. For more information about this release, see the original announcement story here. StarWarsShop.com will be making Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi available for pre-order on Friday, May 12.

Theres also going to be 2 versions of the dvds a Wide screen and a full screen

What, the claymation-like CG and Greedo shooting first?

Some of the only good additions that I can think of are the Outrider leaving Mos Eisley and possibly the reworked lightsabers.

The Star Wars Tv Series

 
Quote
From George Lucas' own words, we may see the notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett play a significant role in the series, with Daniel Logan reprising his role from Attack of the Clones. According to Lucas, several of the major characters from the films may have small appearances as well

Over the course of the show, the fledgling Rebel Alliance will gradually form into a full resistance against the Empire. The Alliance, with its loyalist intentions to restore the Old Republic, will ultimately win its first battle against the Empire, setting up the events for A New Hope. Per the opening crawl of A New Hope, only one major Rebel victory can occur in the series. However, it is possible that the Rebels may achieve minor victories before that.

Recent Star Wars productions have revealed all that is known at this point about the period the series will take place in:

-The Evasive Action: Prey webstrips reveal that an unknown number of Jedi escape Order 66 for any number of reasons (not actively involved in the war, 'conscientious objectors', semi-rogue, skill, luck, etc.), and are hunted for a time by Darth Vader. At some point, Vader is told to focus on helping Palpatine build the Empire, and less on remaining Jedi, leaving that to others.

-Yoda is in self-imposed exile on Dagobah, while Obi-Wan becomes a hermit on Tatooine after taking baby Luke to live with Owen and Beru Lars. The Last of the Jedi: The Desperate Mission reveals that Obi-Wan resides there until contacted about Anakin's one time rival, Ferus Olin. He then goes on one final adventure off-planet before returning to Tatooine. He may have some further planetbound adventures, but otherwise mostly watches over Luke, from a distance.
 
-Star Wars: Republic #83 and an issue of Star Wars Tales reveal that Quinlan Vos also survives the purge, and lives long enough to meet up with Han Solo during Solo's early smuggling years

You guys might want to check out originaltrilogy.com right now.  They have some links to more official sources (like Digital Bits), but basically they're reporting that these rereleases are essentially ripped from the original laser disc (much like all the bootlegs floating around nowadays) and wont be given any restoration beyond that. 

Kind of a shame.  Don't know if I'll want to trade in my bootlegs to be honest, if these aren't going to be any better.  But I might still buy them like a sucker.
