Busy N’ Stuff

Posted on

Sorry for the lack of updates. I have been busy working which is great. However it does leave a few gaps in the posting department. A lot of stuff coming. News. Pictures. Video. Geekdom.

Countdown To Star Wars Blu-rays 6

Here is a post I did back when I finished my film ‘Distortion’. It shows how deep the meaning of these films runs with me. It wasn’t just a movie but something that inspired, and indeed changed, a young boy forever. —- February 10, 2010 It took a lot longer than I expected but the day has come.

Countdown To Star Wars Blu-rays 3

While the changes to the original trilogy have been a target of much debate, even as recently as last week with the announcement of more tweaks done for the upcoming Blu-ray release, the “Special Edition” release done in 1997 was still an amazing experience. I’m not a huge cryer over all of the changes to be honest. Part of me wishes the original versions were restored and released on Blu-ray just to stop people from complaining. I don’t mind there being two versions. The original theatrical versions and the altered versions. A debate for another time though. For right now I am waxing nostalgic. Back in 1996 during the release of ‘Independence Day’ this trailer was released for the “Special Editions”. I saw it opening night in a (then) rare THX theatre filled with people who exploded when this trailer came on. Back before you could watch anything on the […]
