    Star Wars 3D

    This article just made my evening:

    http://arstechnica.com/media/news/20...rs-in-2012.ars

    It's official: the Star Wars saga is going 3D.

    Things will kick off with everybody's favorite chapter in the Star Wars saga, The Phantom Menace, which will be ready to hit theaters in at some point in 2012, with the other five films debuting in subsequent years. According to reports, converting each film to 3D will take approximately a year, with George Lucas overseeing the process himself......

    Thatís the way Lucas milks the Star Wars fans. Slowly release the Star Wars saga in every different available format. Iím sure heíll release it when the Star Wars sales drop below a certain point.

    Well I understand that thought, however Lucas said Blu-Ray was coming very soon if not by now... but instead he's jumping on the 3D bandwagon that is sure to fail. I admit I was slightly interested in catching a football game in 3D once or at least try it cause I get car sick in the passenger side seat now let alone sit and watching something like a pod race in 3D, i'd have to take motion sickness pills just to watch TV!

    Um yeah...the only really good movie was ESB, and the last 3 were terrible. It needs a reboot with Lucas nowhere in sight.

    They are fine, you have to be a long time fan to admire how they worked into a "dark" side or into parts 4 5 and 6. You may as well stop wasting your time anyway, there won't be no reboots or remakes of them.

    I'm not really wasting my time...it took seconds to post my original opinion and just a few more to reply. And all I gotta say is EWOKS (that alone should be worthy of a reboot).

    They cannot reboot it. That would be horrible.

    IMO after Return of the Jedi it went downhill, starting with Jar Jar (sp?), that character by himself ruined any future Starwars films for me.

    He was so ****ing annoying I wanted to be able to slap Lucas myself.

    Yeah, sorry to say but it is wasting just a bit of time even considering it a idea.... I mean really, besides a few bad decisions the films are very very good. No true Star Wars fan would want to see a reboot ever made - not like it will ever happen anyway much like Yard already said, it would be just horrible!

    Sounds about right since all George has done recently can be succinctly summarized in this South Park short.

    Same here....the first couple were awesome, I remember going to see the first one at the movies....and getting the soundtrack...on vinyl! Really went downhill when they added the later (earlier) stories.
