hmmm...I never saw the original release.

Is it going to be direct to DVD? or threatre?

I guess he's gonna re-edit and re-FX the whole thing too...

oh well. I'm less attached to this then the OT, so I guess I can deal with it.

isn't that his senior thesis at USC? It was cool and all, but why bother "enhancing" it? Why not make something new, and cool?

THX wasn't really worth redoing.

yes, i said logans run style thing. not a derivative of logans run, though i can see how my wording might have confused. i just meant of the same genre, style etc, very 70's future angst minimal.

it looked to me, from what i read at the site, that it's only been restored and remastered, and given a DOLBY soundtrack. and it will be at theaters, but the damn text blinks too fast to read the date.

I've never even heard of it, but it looks interesting. I want to see it.

Its funny that hes going back to give it better sound and picture quality (if thats the case) considering the fact that the audio and picture standard that Lucas developed, THX, is actually named after THIS movie.

If he's "enhancing" it in this way, I think its rightly deserved.

I actually loved this film... then again I liked Alien3. Maybe depressing films with bald people is my idea of a good time.

My friends who usually poo-poo Lucas, like this film and don't know why he abandoned his creative 'darker side'. It would be interesting to see if he will eventually revisit these serious roots one day in much the same way Spielberg did with Shindler's List.

I wonder if George Lucas started "enhancing" members of is own family yet. Does he look at his wife and think that she could use some new special FX?

Crazy George. THX was good as it was.

There's a lot more new than just remastering & restoration. Just watch the trailer, a lot of CGI set extensions and enhancements going on there.

Looks pretty cool, though.

There's no stopping him. Lucas is off his rocker. I just hope he can redeem himself with Episode III.

Personally I think Lucas can do whatever he wants with his body of work.

I believe strongly in the creator right to do whatever he or she wants with their films, before and after they have been exhibited.

After all, they are THEIR individual visions, and we are just along for the ride.
