    Hitchcock marathon on Friday, although it appears they left off my favorite...North By Northwest.

    I went to 12 Years As a Slave a couple of weeks ago. Did anyone else think that they spent too much time focusing on slavery?

    In the future, please send me a PM when you make a joke so I can avoid looking foolish.

    A refreshing humanistic film with an excellent use color. Kaurismäki articulates his views clearly, simply, and concisely. I highly recommend it.

    Where did you find an unmolested version? You watching it on VHS?

    From the 2004 double disk sets? (I think repackaged as a box in 2008). How big a deal is it, them being non-anamorphic?

    I have no idea. I haven't watched them in years and didn't know the difference back then. Might dig em out this weekend and get back to you on that

    Cool. It's not terrible important (I'm sure I could google me to all kinds of comparisons) - I just remembered it being an issue when they were released. If I sat down to watch them I don't think I would give it much thought, so just wondered if it was something you'd noticed.

    From what I can gather, the versions you have there are as good as it's gonna get for the original-original trilogy :)

    Somewhere on the internet (and I may have downloaded them at some point to upgrade the 2004 versions) there is a custom fan made unmolested version.

    I don't remember the details but I think they took the highest quality unmolested version if every scene. So they have bluray rips where possible and drop to other releases when necessary. Might have been able to keep the bluray audio for the whole thing.

    I had a friend who had never seen them and was going to try this version... But now I don't remember who it was.

    ^ Great read. If I ever have kids, that Machete Order is definitely going to come in handy.

    "The other problem with Episode Order is that the prequels don’t really have a story." That sentence sums up the prequel trilogy right there.

    Cutting episode one is genius.

    It really has zero story that blends with the rest and all of the characters and villains die or are replaced by different actors (Natalie portman is still there but she takes over keira knightly's role).

    Any mildly important plot points are reviewed in EP 2. You can leave EP 1 as a "this thing exists... You can watch it later if you want along with the holiday special".

    Plus fucking one.


    Not that anyone should want to. This is also how I feel about Indiana Jones & The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull. Fucking aliens; seriously?

    Agree completely on the aliens...I think Lucas and Spielberg got together and said, "How can we make sure that the audience won't ask for another Indiana Jones movie? I got it...we will make the whole thing end with aliens."

    Mission accomplished.
