The New Marathon List:

4a. "All the Real Girls"
It'd be a good thing to watch with the Malick-athon as the lead-in. But, fuck, please watch most of these on a bigger screen.

Yeah, I'm gonna make a big push for them on the regular-sized screen.

His only R flick is Thin Red Line, so I can swing it.

Why did he take a 20 year break between Days of Heaven and Thin Red Line?

Also, can someone explain the strike about to happen in '08 to me and why it's affecting production, please? I've heard much about it, but don't have a good idea of what it's about.

I'm totally shocked--Eastern Promises is actually going to be playing at the multiplex near the place I'm staying. I didn't think it would be in any mainstream theatres.

It will probably still bomb, but at least I'll get to see it.

Gratuitous Star Wars reference for Lance: Aside from the "Greedo Shoots First" debacle, the Special Editions are actually practical improvements on the theatrical cuts--discuss.

Can I give you a hug please?

I've been saying that ever since they were released. Sure some of the changes are completely uncalled for, but why would I choose to watch the original versions when I have new completely remastered DVD transfers with amazing digital 5.1 audio and cleaned up SFX? Whhyyyy???

You're kidding me right? I'll give you the added effects and incredible job they did cleaning up and re-mastering the original prints but that’s as far as I will go for the Special Editions...

Lucas seems to have this obsession with cramming as much CG crap into shots as possible. The scenes in Mos Isely are a good example; do I really need to see cute little creatures and jawas running around everywhere making stupid little noises? No.

As for the added scenes, they don't really add anything to the story, this is from memory, so forgive me if I forget any:

-The added sequence with Han and Jabba in SW - pointless since its the same dialogue he uses with Greedo

-The added sequence with Biggs before the final battle in SW – this is one of the only scenes which I think may work since it fleshes out back-story and it makes you care a little more about Biggs

-The added sequence with Darth Vader leaving his command ship at the end of ESB – completely pointless, it had no bearing on anything

-The added music number in Jabba’s Palace in ROTJ – absolutely terrible, I was cringing in my seat in the theater and I skip it every time I watch it on DVD

-The added celebration shots at the end of ROTJ – I liked this sequence slightly better than the original and the music was better but then he went and ruined it IMO buy putting Hayden Christensen in as Anakin. Why he did this baffles my mind, why not edit out Alec Guinness then with Ewan McGregor?

Agreed. This is a terrible scene. Gives me nightmares.

Because Alec Guinness appears as Alex Guinness in all three Star Wars films, while we practically never see that dude playing Darth Vader aside from one short shot? I honestly don't give two craps about this one. It adds a bit more vidual continuity, but really doesn't change anything one way or another.

No one's mentioned the fact the scene in which Vader talks to The Emperor in ESB was altered to replace the original emperor with Ian McDiarmid...it makes sense in the context of all six films, but one could argue that the original female-voiced emperor was creepier.

I agree...

This goes with the Anakin substitution imo, I like the movie the way it is George, don't fuck with my childhood memories.
