Still surprised Ford wants to come back to Star Wars.

I guess he needs a new house.

Still not sure about the direction they're taking this. I'm all for new Star Wars movies, (seeing how this is a chance to revive the series after George destroyed it with that abortion of a trilogy in the form of the prequels), but if all they plan on doing is rehashing the same characters and stories, then I think this will ultimately be a wasted opportunity. The Star Wars universe is so vast, they'd be doing themselves a disservice by confining themselves from the get go. The Luke/Leia/Solo story arc is over. I say leave it that way.



I'm more alarmed that Lucas was allowed to speak on the record about Episode 7. I thought that he was completely gone from the series? I want the man as far away from the SW franchise as humanly possible. Luke/Leia/Han I can deal with, though hopefully JJ Abrams will use them in an appropriate manner, and not force them into the plot the way R2-D2, C-3PO and Chewbacca were forced into the Prequel Trilogy.

So this is going to be Star Wars Episode VIII: The Retirement Home Strikes Back

Mark will have to get on an exercise program.

I saw him last year in a low budget movie named Airborne and he looked real heavy.

Sure, some people do put on weight when they age - it's perfectly natural;

but Mark has gotten huge even for his small body frame!

Either the years haven't been good to him or he just hasn't been taking care of himself or both.

For someone who still gets a lot of work (according to his IMDB filmography), you'd think he would have the $ to at least get a gym membership, work out regularly and eat a sensible healthy diet.

In all fairness to him, he's done great voice work over the years and thus hasn't really been in front of a camera, thus no reason to keep in shape. Besides, Father Time will have his wicked way with all of us at some point (fyi: Father Time is an allegorical reference and not a Catholic priest).

Actually there is.

A GOOGLE of the internet revealed the followings:

I didn't write these or made these up.

Actually, Star Wars is incrediby sexual. What's with all the flying down shafts to deliver payloads to central power plants? Not to mention Vader's shiny penile helmet.

As is, for that matter, the Rebel pilots trying to torpedo a "small exhaust port, right below the main port".

AND

pilot 1: I got a problem here.
p 2: Eject!
p 1: I can hold it.
p2: Pull out!
p 1: No, I'm all right... ahhh!

Luke: I can't. It's too big.
Yoda: Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm?

AND These

She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid.
Curse my metal body, I wasn't fast enough!
Look at the size of that thing!
It came from… behind!
Sorry about the mess...
Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?
You've got something jammed in here real good.
Put that thing away before you get us all killed.
Luke, at that speed do you think you'll be able to pull out in time?
Get in there you big furry oaf, I don't care WHAT you smell!
You're all clear kid. Now let's blow this thing and go home!
You are required to maneuver straight down this trench...
Negative, negative... Just impacted on the surface.
You could enter my pod.
Of course I love her, she's my sister.
Stretch out with your feelings.
This oil bath is going to feel so good!
This is Red 5, I'm going in!
The last time I felt it, was in the presence of my old master.
And I thought they smelled bad on the outside!
You’re going to need me on this one, Master.
Possible he came in through the south entrance.
Hurry up, golden rod...
There's an awful lot of moisture in here....
probably chewing on the power couplings.
In you must go.

Mudhole? SLIMY?
Rise, my friend.
She seems to be on top of things
Open the back door!
Hey, point that thing somewhere else!
Keep on that one, I'll take these two.
I want you to take her. I mean it, take her!

My lord, is that… legal? – I will make it legal.
Wedge! Pull out! You're not doing any good back there!

Ha! It's like how a lot of the big budget porn parody DVDs these days have an option to watch the movie WITHOUT the sex scenes. Like -- why do I wanna watch a 90 minute movie with terrible acting and production values that's "parodying" a real movie sitting on my DVD shelf?

I don't know what's worse: the fact that you think out-of-context quotes and a list that was rejected from David Letterman's Top Ten countdown proves that STAR WARS is all about sex, or the fact that you went looking for it in the first place.

In other news, they cancelled the Clone Wars show. I actually watched the first season some months back. Aside from a few complaints (Anakin having an apprentice), I thought it was actually pretty good.

Star Wars Detours, an animated comedy show, got canned.



Good, it looked exceptionally retarded.

I was watching Star Wars earlier.

Yes!

Star Wars!

NOT Episode IV A New Hope as Crazy Lucas wants you to call it now.

The original title of it is Star Wars and there was no "Episode IV A New Hope" in the opening crawl when this film was released on May 25th, 1977.

Anyway, I'd noticed a few things:

What were all those Imperial Storm Troopers and Officers and NCO doing there?

Having a parade formation practice or a staff meeting?



Why would you put the Tractor Beam control over a precipice shaft and the cat walk around it is not even wide enough to stand on?

How do you do maintenance on that thing?



Leia runs like a sissy girl for a "Princess"!!



I will look for more as I go through the other 5 films.

Aren't y'all just bursting with excitement?

I am watching the Blu-Ray which I presume is the Special Edition since the original theatrical version was never released on DVD.

I don't remember if this shot was in the movie when I watched it at the theater and then later on VHS rental tape.
