Lucas adds even more changes to the original series. Sigh...

#55 Posted by Sitoxity (551 posts) -

I'm holding on to what little hope this isn't true...but if it is, that really, REALLY sucks...

That completely ruins the scene for me. It's so powerful being in silence and now it's just silly all over. Hell it doesn't even look like he's saying it, because he isn't!

You don't have to keep buying the same movie over and over again.

Is there actually a legit source confirming this?

Hahaha, Can't wait for him to argue that it's a mature anime that you need to watch IN JAPANESE to truly understand the complexity of the characters and relationships.

As for Star Wars, I'm not even a massive fan, but even I can see that George Lucas has lost his mind.

Why do I get the feeling that post was made as a joke and the only reason it's gotten so many responses unlike other similar joke responses in other threads is because of the avatar?

That said, I don't think anyone can defend Gundam SEED as anything other than mediocre at best...

On topic, watching that clip, it actually didn't sound horrible. It's not the loud bemoaning NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO from the end of the third movie. Though changing the script at all in the first place is a silly move

#62 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11626 posts) -

Oh no. George Lucas is ruining Star Wars. Again. For the 5th time. To be fair, that is still kind of disgusting. Who knows? Maybe Yoda will be CG in the next re-release too, or maybe they'll find some way to screw up Raiders of the Lost Ark.

But, you know what the solution is? Find your old VHS or DVD copies of the unaltered films and just watch those. I mean, Star Wars was pretty much ruined forever around 1997, but at least we can remember better, brighter days through use of primitive technology.

Its not like he's destroying the original film reel and going from house to house to torch any original cuts for the film.

Don't think he wouldn't if he could.

#64 Edited by ShaggE (6420 posts) -

Most folks just remake films. Why does Lucas need to slowly and painstakingly replace the original, scene by scene? If you're going to kill your creation, at least do it in one quick blow.  
 
That "Indiana Jones rape" episode of South Park seems more and more on the ball.  
 
EDIT: By 2027, Star Wars will consist entirely of a raunchy screwball comedy about a fraternity that takes over their college and shows the stuffy dean that it's not hip to be square. It will all culminate in a football game that will determine the fate of the school, which is won solely due to the frat's zany hijinks. The stuffy dean will thank the kids for saving the day, and he'll cut loose by removing his tie and joining the festivities, but the frat will get one last goof in and dump Gatorade over his head. (knocking his toupee askew, natch) Freeze frame, then cue the hit song "Footloose".

I'm glad that outside of one extremely pointless CG shot in Raiders, the Indiana Jones remasters are mostly untouched.(I care more about it than Star Wars) Of course, they haven't said what the fuck they'll be doing with the blu-rays of that.

#66 Posted by ma_rc_01 (363 posts) -

Is he trying to make these movies perfect? Is that all that was missing for this to be a true masterpiece?

"Well, we just didn't have the technology to make him say NOOOOOOOOO back then, now it's closer to my true vision"

I'd do the same thing if I was him, if for no other reason than to keep myself flush with hilarious emails from irrationally enraged people who put way too much effort into being hurt and confused.

What do you think kicked off the revolution? Augmentation development started after George replaced Emporer Palpatine with a wisecracking shoe voiced by Eddie Murphy, just so that they can stab his face harder.  
 
I can't back this up, and certain parts of the game directly conflict with my claims, but it's all true!

I know why certain parts of the game directly conflict with what you say. It's because they wanted to hide the fact that Shitty Star Wars VS Augmentation is our future. Only the smartest people can notice this in the game. You discovered a conspiracy theory in a game about conspiracy theories, and by discovering that, you gave hope to humanity. I suggest that we should start our plan to murder George Lucas right now. For a future without Eddie Shoepatine!

Fuck, that totally ruined the entire scene. You were supposed to feel Darth Vader's emotions as he defeated the emperor. It's almost as if Lucas doesn't think we understand the scene and need the 'No..Noooo" added in to help us recognize the situation.

#74 Posted by Dookysharpgun (586 posts) -

You just know that he's going to add in a special scene where luke and leia get it on...and the sad thing is, some people will probably get off to that, including George 'I'm wanking all over my own creation' Lucas. 
 
So...anybody else not going to get this, and just watch the original, unedited movies instead?

#75 Posted by BrainSpecialist (554 posts) -

Fuck that guy.

#76 Posted by Dallas_Raines (2158 posts) -

@Dookysharpgun:

The only problem with that is that the DVD versions of the original, unedited films are intentionally fucked up transfers.

I could not be more done with Star Wars. It was a cool series when I was a kid, and then they were making the prequels and it was gonna be awesome but the movies were kinda bad despite the hype and nerd cred, and then the re-releases and ugh... The whole thing just needs to die.

Wooow...I was merely pointing out the ludicrous notion of someone liking something which is usually considered childish making "for kids" a negative connotation. You obviously have taken this personally somehow though and we're down to name calling. Doody head.

He's not attacking him because of his avatar.  He's humorously pointing out the hypocrisy of the poster.   
 
But, have fun being contrary and "above it all". 
#84 Posted by MideonNViscera (2257 posts) -

It's funny in so many ways. It's funny to think of George Lucas pouring over his original films going "Hmmm how can I make these more awesome? There appears to be only one thing missing from the entire trilogy". It's equally as funny to watch the reactions to something so insignificant.

#85 Posted by Meowshi (2911 posts) -

George Lucas is so disconnected from his original fanbase.  To this day, he refuses to admit that anything was wrong with the prequels.

#87 Posted by onyxghost (306 posts) -

Damn it... I used to think all the new crap wouldn't be able to harsh my memories of the originals. Now it seems the only way to watch the originals is in an altered form. It's like he is trying to rewrite my memories with shit.

#91 Posted by bartok (2469 posts) -

I am so glad I gave up on Star Wars after Attack of the Clones.   I can't wait until he fucks with Empire (allegedly George Lucas hates Empire) to a point that it is unwatchable and even the die hard loyalist have to admit that he has gone to far.

Yep, that's real. He decided to add vaders "noooo" to the end of return of the jedi. What the fuck is he thinking? All the hate he gets for changing stuff and keeps on doing it.  That one's so dumb too.
