  1. New STAR WARS change on the blu-ray. When Vader sees C3PO, they’ve dubbed in, “no freaking way, I built that. But nobody mention it again.”

    I’ve wanted to see Original Trilogy deleted scenes for…I don’t even know how long. Feels like eons now. We’ve all see the sandstorm stills and the wampa attack on echo base stills but actually have the chance to legit see them is really a dream come true. Problem is will this come at the price of Lucas changing and altering the originals even more? The only alterations I would find acceptable at this point are altering alterations back to what the originally were – ex: making Han once again shoot first. Imagine the thunderous applause from the audience during the 3D screening of A New Hope if it’s back to the classic smuggler Han ruthlessly blowing Greedo away. I say imagine because it’ll never happen. Not only will it not happen but he’ll probably find a way to digitally insert Jar Jar and Hayden somewhere into the cantina just to spite us. You can only count on Lucas to do one thing anymore: something awful.
