Star Wars Anticipation

So we all know that George Lucas is re-releasing all of Star Wars - in 3D this time - starting this year, with Episode I: The Phantom Menace. (btw, what do you think of that? Leave 'em as-is? Looking forward to it? Too much?)

Generally, I'm not a big fan of 3D, but there are certain sequences I'm DYING to see!
The original- Star Wars: A New Hope - was the first live-action movie I ever saw on the big screen. All I remember is that the Battle of Yavin (the fight on the Death Star as I knew it then) made me dizzy. I left the cinema feeling like I'd been on a roller-coaster! You better believe my adult self is looking forward to that in 3D!

But that's a long way off, since he's going chronologically. >sigh< For now, I'm watching Phantom Menace like it's my job. I want to know exactly what I'm looking forward to. Whether you like the podrace or not, it's the prequel verson of the Battle of Yavin (rollercoaster-wise), and should come out well.

I'm even going into the extras, because you never know what deleted scenes our Mr. Lucas may decide need reinstating! An unpredictable genius is George, and he can do what he wants because it is, after all, his story!

...really, I'm not obsessive-compulsive. Compulsive maybe, or maybe occasionally obsessive, but really, not both together!


  1. I saw the original STAR WARS at the drive in when I was 6 years old. Blew me away.

    I feel the same way about 3D. I have yet to be impressed. In fact, I am starting to wonder if Hollywood has run out of movie ideas. It seems that 75% of the movies coming out are either modern revisioning of old TV shows, remakes of foreign movies or a re-release of an old movie in 3D

  2. I have never seen a 3D movie. But perhaps Star Wars could get me to don the glasses!


I enjoy a good debate. Feel free to shake things up. Tell me I'm wrong. Ask me why I have such a weird opinion. ...or, just laugh and tell how this relates to you and your life.
