  1. What does everyone have to say if the three originals were re-recorded?

    I'd say that it would not improve the films in the slightest. Therefore, Lucas should spend his money on making new films and stop f**king around with 20+ year old movies.

  2. I now have the DVD too, so i'm gonna see if it's possible to extact to short "Captains Log" cues.

    It is. Remember I sent you the wav and mp3's I made of that? :)

    And if I remember correctly, your boot was slightly out of order, swapping the order of "Thruster Suit" and "Spock Walk". They should actually be one complete track, which is what I did for my latest version.

    Harry, as for recommendations, I'd get:

    and

  3. Many of you (including Ocelot) know where I stand on this. No, no, no!! The scores to these films do not need to be touched. The films are what they are. Why should Star Wars, a perfect movie, be downgraded to better fit the overall arc of the saga? It doesn't make any sense. If anything, the other films should be altered to make them as good as Star Wars. And changing a few cues in Jedi is not going to make the film any better.

  4. Copy the CDs and use the CD-Rs. :( That's what I did with all my CDs. I just keep them in a CD wallet (three CD wallets...) and leave the CDs in the case.

    That's exactly what I did. In fact my CD-R's are even better because they have CD Text encoding on them so I can see what track is playing without the booklet!

  5. I don't think masturbation is an appropriate topic

    Why not? It's sex with somebody I love. :o (thank you Woody Allen for that one)

    why do men always leave the toilet seat up???

    Easier for the dog when it's thirsty. :mrgreen:

  6. I have yet to see one director's cut that improves on the original movie.

    I'll give you two examples, Star Trek - The Motion Picture - The Director's Edition and The Abyss - Special Edition. Both of these films were compromised in their original release versions. Star Trek was rushed into theaters before a final edit was completed. The new version which came out on DVD a few months ago is a revelation. It shows what the movie was supposed to have been for all these years.

    The Abyss had the entire original climax cut out for a variety of reasons. The movie was very long (in a time when most films were around 2 hours), it was not testing consistently and the effects were not completed to everyones satisfaction. However, once you see the film with the proper ending, with the tidal wave sequence (which was finished digitally for the "Special Edition" release) you'll see that the movie is far superior to what was released in 1989.

    As for adding scenes to Harry Potter, no, no, no. The movie was perfectly realized. There is not a wasted frame in the movie and to tamper with that would be a crime.

  7. That album IS the BEST re-recording of a Star Wars score... ever. Get it... NOW! :)

    Our fearless webmaster is quite correct. That album is fabulous. The best recordings of "The Imperial March" and "The Asteroid Field", and overall just a great album.

  8. This is a very old bit. Here are responses that I found here.

    If you hear . . . "Luke, I am your father... and your uncle..."

    If you ever said the phrase, "May the force be with y'all."

    Your Jedi robe is camouflage.

    You have ever used your light saber to open a bottle of Bud Light.

    At least one wing of your X-Wings is primer colored.

    You can easily describe the taste of an Ewok.

    You have ever had a land-speeder up on blocks in your yard.

    The worst part of spending time on Dagobah is the dadgum skeeters.

    Wookiees are offended by your B.O.

    You have ever used the force to get yourself another beer so you didn't have to wait for a commercial.

    You have ever used the force in conjunction with fishing or bowling.

    You have ever had your R-2 unit use its self-defense electro-shock thingy to get the barbecue grill to light up.

    You have a confederate flag painted on the hood of your land-speeder.

    You ever fantasized about Princess Leia wearing Daisy Duke shorts.

    You have the doors of your X-wing welded shut and you have to get in through the window.

    Although you had to kill him, you kinda thought that Jabba the Hutt had a pretty good handle on how to treat his women.

    You have a cousin who bears a strong resemblance to Chewbacca.

    You suggested that they outfit the Millennium Falcon with redwood deck.

    You were the only person drinking Jack Daniels during the cantina scene.

    Your father has ever said to you, "Shoot, son come on over to the dark side...it'll be a hoot."

  9. What does an isolated score do?

    It's the music to the movie, usually played during the film without dialogue and effects mixed in. Any editing done to the score to get it to conform to the final edit or the director's wishes are carried over.

    Can you play it on a CD player

    No.

    can you open it with a DVD-ROM?

    I don't know.

    Neil

  10. This is indeed a wonderful score. Some of Williams' most beautiful music is in this film. A full CD would be nice, but for now you can get the DVD which has the full score isolated. Between that and the Bay Cities CD, you should be able to have the whole thing.
