I might in the minority here, but I liked the Special Edition releases. There are a few things I wish they would have left out or done differently (Greedo shooting first and the redone Wampa scene being the two most prominent examples), but on the whole I think the SE versions add more to the films than they detract from them. I think it helps that the majority of the changes were instances of Lucas adding things that he really wanted to have in the movies originally but lacked the money and/or the technology to make it feasible, rather than "Let's add more rocks to the canyon scene because why the fuck not."

In that case, you may like A New Hope: Revisited Edition. It corrects a lot of technical errors in the 2004 SE as well as taking out some of the stupid shit (like Greedo shooting first) and adding new effects.

See now that makes sense to me. Don't discard the special edition entirely because of a few things that were crap. There are some sequences in there that DO add to things more. I for one think the scene where Han runs into a whole platoon of troopers instead of three or five perfectly fits his character. A badass smuggler who gets in over his head with crazy insane stunts. Plus, do you really think Han Solo would be so quick to run from five guys? No, he'd shoot them all down like they weren't nothing. But a whole room? That I can see him fleeing from.

When you talk about the special edition, do you mean the versions that came out in 1997 for the 20th celebration of Star Wars? I am asking cause that is the one I have on video and actually still watch.

Yeah, I was talking about the SE releases that came out in '97. In my view, those are the versions that balance the most practical fixes to the movies with the least amount of unnecessary bullshit.

Looks pretty interesting. Just viewing the trailer, the color correction alone looks vastly superior to the '04 DVD version. It amazes me how fans can manage to outdo the work of paid professionals on stuff like this.

I just came out of a matinee of Men in Black 3.
Oh boy...
I give the movie the following: It was better than the second one. I liked the villain depsite him being one dimensional, the time traveling idea was okay, the alien designs were nice to watch and I have to give the guy who played the younger Agent K credit, he was good. Also, you still get at least that the chemistry between Smith and Lee Jones still works.
But at the same time you really got the feeling to get old. This movie would have worked better as the second one than it did as the third one because you realized just what changed in term of style, even if the movie tried to be closer to the first one than the second did. They did not just "repeat" the stuff that was popular 14 years ago, but it really was not something mind blowing. At best this movie was a nice watch, nothing more.

The dumbest thing I got out of it was the tagged on thing with the major at the end and his relation to Agent J if you get my drift.

Is it just me or does some of the music from that Judge Dreed trailer sound like it's from Mass Effect.



It's particularly the "dun dun dun dun dun dun" music near the end with all the machine gun shooting.

It sounded like some weird mash-up of In for the Kill by La Roux and the theme from Inception. Hmm... "All movie trailer music sounds the same." Possible new meme?

In any case, wow, a new Judge Dredd movie. Welp, I guess it can't be any worse than the original.

I don't like that his catchphrase is so subdued. You're supposed to yell out that you're the law, and do it while half your face is kinda slured open a bit.

Oh my fucking GOD...! What an absolutely amazing movie. I can't believe I hadn't seen it until now.

For a moment, I thought it was basically going to be Mass Effect except with Obama instead of Shepard.

Can't decide whether or not that's better or worse.

It's real. Although from what I've heard and seen it's not as campy as the Stallone version. If they actually keep him in the suit for the majority of the film that will make it better.

I will give the Judge Dredd one at the moment the benefit of the doubt. I don`t think it may be terrible. I at least hope it will be more entertaining than everything I heard about Prometheus.

Judging by the last Dredd film, it will at least be entertaining, if not technically good.

I just finished watching "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn". I have to say the following: In regard of being an adaptation, it takes A LOT of liberties. But as a movie in general and in regard of animation, action humor and storytelling, just wow.
I really enjoyed it. Especially the final confrontation between Haddock and the main antagonist who was a badass in red suit was very well made. As siad, a lot of liberties, but I think also a modern day loveletter to Herge`S work.

So they made a drug that essentially makes the world go into slow motion a plot point solely to justify slow motion action sequences.

...

Seems legit.

In all seriousness at least the movie actually looks more accurate to it's bloody ridden gritty as rusty nails source material.
