Hurts my hearth because I used to care.

Yeah I think it was better when Vader used his actions instead of words to make his point, the "No...Nooooo" sounded pretty lame.

Oh, Lucas, you bat shit crazy motherfucker, some huge Star Wars fan is gonna come up to you one day and stab you and/or shoot you. 
Edit: Too much?

We're about 2 or 3 original trilogy rereleases away from the RedLetterMedia guy doing reviews of those films.

When I found out he thought the updated orginal trilogy was better than the actual original AND had no intentions of re-releasing the originals, I realized I can no longer say I'm a fan of Star Wars.

@GetEveryone: listen to the clip. It technically makes sense, but it's so fucking horrible....

I like Star Wars. All six of them.

It's not like the long drawn out noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. He just says no and then nooooo. It's actually not too bad.

Anyway, after watching that clip and having zero like for anything Star Wars, I think it was probably better without the sample added.

Stopped caring about the movies a long time ago. Still love Star Wars though. Imperial march gives me goose bumps every time.

As opposed to whatever mecha anime you have for avatar?

#28 Posted by natural_deadhead (272 posts) -

I see nothing wrong with it. You guys are complaining for the sake of of complaining. As for replacing the old Anakin Skywalker with Hayden Christensen at the end of ROTJ, George Lucas can burn in hell.

You took that waaaaaaaayyyy too seriously. 
 
On topic, my reaction is "Wheee, glad I've still got one of the older sets of DVD's!" 
 
I shall have them ripped onto my computer and never let go of the files. 
 
And then I'll just move onto newer stories. I know these movies by heart now, I have a hard time sitting down to watch them again because I've seen them so many times.
#33 Edited by ryanwho (12082 posts) -

I bet he leaves in that awful CGI Jabba from A New Hope. And anybody remember the dance number he added to Return of the Jedi? The mediocrity of this man was written on the wall long before the prequels. But its not a big deal. This is modern Star Wars. 
 
But you can still buy this  
 
on DVD if you want. So just do that. Its not like he's destroying the original film reel and going from house to house to torch any original cuts for the film.

#34 Posted by Revan_NL (332 posts) -

At this rate, I wouldn't be surprised if Lucas somehow managed to add Jar Jar Binks to a scene in Empire...

For a second there I was afraid that you were talking about Indiana Jones.

I wish I could still be a Star Wars fan, but if it doesn't have a Bioware logo I just don't care at all anymore.

@AlexW00d: Snider was FAR past his hardcore stage when he said that. I bed Hardcore Dave LOVES George Lucas.

#44 Posted by The_Nubster (2037 posts) -

It's not terrible by any stretch of the imagination, but it's completely unnecessary. Except for adding teeth to the Sarlacc, every change Lucas has made has been frivolous.

@TooWalrus: true, but the real hardcore Dave was when he was in high school/college and we have no quotes of his from then, so modern shit has to suffice. Plus meme.

#48 Posted by Nephrahim (1116 posts) -

Meh.  It's...  fine. 
 
TBH I did find it odd that scene was so silent before.  I do agree Vader saying "No" is such a meme I don't know what he's thinking using it. 
 
The old trilogy is still the old triology.  Eventualy Lucas will die and maybe someone will find copies of the origonals and release a "No stupid shit" edition.

#49 Edited by Benjamimmy (565 posts) -

The first "no" kind of sounds like Mircosoft Sam or something like that. Maybe not Sam, but along those lines. By watching the video, I don't think it's too bad, but messing the original stuff will obviously anger a lot of people. The one thing I don't like was when he changed the Anakin Skywalker ghost.
