    Its also worth hunting out 'The Phantom Edit' if youre hitting the torrents.

    Something that achieves the impossible: making the phantom menace watchable.

    Could anyone do me a copy of that? Never understood torrents so wouldn't know where to start. I'd of course cover all costs. Pm me.

    Is it just the first film they've done so far?

    It'll cost about 40 to do, does that sound ok?

    Vader looks across at Luke, his face a mask (fnar). Then he looks to the Emperor. Then back at Luke. Then he lunges at the Emperor and, lightning arcing across his body, he throws the old dude down the reactor shaft.

    Except now he shouts 'NOOOOOOOOO' while he does it.

    The lighting in that scene is incredible.
    You just reminded me that I haven't seen that scene in nearly ten years. Also that ROTJ has its moments.

    My most prominent memories from ROTJ are the Ewoks, and Lucas' supplementary 'celebration' scenes at the end. But these unfortunate flecks of shit aren't representative of the film as a whole. The final confrontation, for example, is one of my favourite moments in film ever.

    I'm really looking forward to watching ROTJ. I'll have to hunt down the 'un-remastered' version first, though.
    As is always the case the score makes the moment. John Williams made a lot of Wagner and the leitmotif in his music for the films, and Vader's crux moments are led into with a rising roll of kettle drums. When he captures Han and Leia on Cloud City they lead into the Imperial March (as the doors close), but here they lead into a Force theme, which is given a minor key and blasts across all other sound effects (until it settles and you have the echoing deep scream of the Emperor falling down the shaft, which mingles with the instruments as the music is shredded and Vader is mortally injured).

    Also 'So be it, Jedi.' has to be the best single line of the trilogy. The Emperor recognises his failure, and now he is going to tear Luke apart. Strings held on a single note. Amazing.

    P.S. The Endor battle is still the best sci-fi space battle I've ever seen. Only Homeworld has ever come close, and that was very different in style (lovely music there too).

    I'm not sure I've ever listened properly to a Star Wars film. Maybe RotJ'll be much improved for listening to it, rather than watching it?

    When I first moved into my flat in London I bought a projector (tall ceilings, white walls) and hooked the Gamecube up to it. And then played Rogue Squadron 2.

    The Endor Mission.

    Motherfucker it was like being there. In cockpit camera and everything. There has been no better dogfight captured on film, ever.

    Pop quiz - how many different types of Star Destroyer do we see in the battle of Endor?

    WRONG!

    We see at least four.

    Normal one.

    Super Star Destroyer (what's that Admiral? Concentrate all fire where?)

    Some kind of communications ship (look for the bit right at the beginning of an Endor battle sequence where a tie fighter is heavily ablaze and being pounded by laser bolts before exploding - in the background we have the superstructure of a Star Destroyer which has at least five bridge pods on the frontface, as opposed to one which is the norm)

    Some kind of non-transport ship (watch the Falcon fly towards the camera along the length of the (must be) underside of a Star Destroyer, which has neither hangar entrance nor large dome that we've seen on all the others).

    Once thing I really like about Timothy Zahn's Thrawn trilogy is their explanation for how the Battle of Endor is won (it might not be the origin of this theory) in that the Emperor himself is coordinating the battle through Force manipulation of thousands of key personnel, and his death throws the Imperial fleet into disarray. Otherwise the outcome of the battle doesn't make a lot of sense.

    Same here and I concur. Also we had some mental Samba Di Amigo 2 UP sessions on that wall. And Luigi's Mansion of course.

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realise half of them are stupider than that

    Robocop 2014 - 80%
    Big fan of the original, but still thoroughly enjoyed this new one, for a different set of reasons.
    Obviously the OTT violence and swearing are non-existent here, but watched as a more straight up Sci-fi film, one with some fairly deep messages for a 12a, this is pretty friggin good.
    For instance, the subsequent 10 minutes after Murphy first 'wakes up' in this one was easily more affecting than any scene from the original.
    On top of that there are a couple of good action scenes (a shootout in a pitch black warehouse was pretty cool), and most of the cast do a great job.
    So thankfully it was nowhere near the disaster I thought it would be, when they first showed off that suit 2 years back.

    Excellent. Can't wait to see it. Was going to go tonight but couldn't make it.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Oblivion, it was a strict 6 out of 10. I guessed the clone stuff namely because of the awesome film called MOON, although everyone hates.

    I want sunshine to come to Netflix, that's a good film.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Such a brilliant film.

    ... although not one you'd likely watch more than once though.

    Be interesting to see what Bowie's son does next, after should-have-ended-ten-minutes-sooner Source Code.

    Oblivion's not the greatest thing committed to film ever, but it's certainly no worse than a fairly decent if slightly dull sci-fi film.

    To walk out of the cinema half way through (and for that to be the first and only film you've ever done that to) is a little bit weird.

    It's already started production. It's the Warcraft movie, which I'm still optimistic about because he can certainly talk the talk. My only concern is how much the studio will stick its nose in.

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi
