I just don't care anymore.
Yeah, that basically sums up my feelings about the Star Wars Blu-Ray release. I am curious, though - will the pointless fucking around that Lucas does for the Blu-Ray release be completely different from the pointless fucking around he'll inevitably do for the 3D cinematic re-re-release? Will Lucas then do a separate Blu-Ray of the 3D re-re-release, with even more pointless fucking around?

Star Wars fans - if this isn't proof enough that George Lucas is seriously mentally ill (or the Jedi Master of trolling), I'd like to know what is.

Odd. I absolutely HATED G.I. Joe and thought it was even worse than Transormers 1 or 2. I have been interested in getting into movie reviews and am unsure how to get a press screening. But Attack the Block looks amazing and I can't wait to see it.

The new Blu-Ray release of Return of the Jedi is going to have Vader saying "No" just before he grabs Palpatine and bellowing out "Nooo!" As he's carrying him over to the pit. Largely unimportant change ala the Greedo/Han confrontation (and yes, it is largely unimportant, despite the rabid fanatics screaming otherwise) but it's got SW Fanatics in an uproar (again) because "Lucas is changing what we hold dear! WAHHH!"

Honestly, I'm with Bob on that. It's just not as big of a deal that people are making about it.

Back on topic, the last part there about reviewing a new movie would be a nice change. Just wish Hollywood would comply and make something new.

By the way, are the arguments for hiding films from Critics the same as bringing a movie out straight to DVD?

It seems most of the straight to DVD films (which tend to be sequels) are not exactly er, very good. :)

It's not a bad episode, but it's something that you've talked about before. I would have rather seen a movie you missed before reviewed - perhaps something that was recently released on DVD, although a classic would work too.

This sounded more like a Big Picture episode to me.

But WITHOUT THE CREEPY FACES.

Basically "well I have no material, time to talk about nothing for 5 minutes! WEEEEEEEE!"

I know that due to circumstance you might not have material for a week but you don't you have a backlog of old ideas or maybe stuff you didn't cover. Gotta have a plan B.

Surely there's some stuff from last week or the week before you could have reviewed, or even an old movie, just for the heck of it. Is it really that important to review movies that came out this week that you won't do a show if you didn't see any movies?

That was a fantastic episode of The Big Picture, although it's strange you've decided to do two episodes in one week.

I thought "The Unseen" was that Russian movie with invisible aliens. Turns out this was actually an episode of 'The Big Picture'.

Good episode of "The Big Picture" but I thought on Friday you did Escape to the Movies? Oh well, maybe you'll release one about Conan or The Help later today

Didn't you already mention the whole no press screening beforehand in a past episode? I think it was after you reviewed Piranha 3D?
Also Piranha 3DD eh? Well I hope it live up to its name (err yes more 3D ness).
