Be still my beating heart!

Due to the enormous pressure and demand from fans, LucasFilm is going to be releasing the original unedited versions of the Star Wars trilogy on DVD. Each movie will be released indivdually in a two disc set containing the tainted remastered version (that makes babies cry) as well as the original theatrical edition as a special feature. Which of course means that all the fans that bought the DVD trilogy will have to buy those movies all over again just to get the originals. While there isn’t a price listed yet, I’m relatively sure you’ll be paying for the price of both movies. Why does Lucas hate us?

To top it all off, these DVDs are a limited release, meaning they’ll only be available for purchase between September 12th and December 31st, which is also a shitty move to garner more profit. It is like rubbing salt in our wounds, which are have been inflicted by forcing us to pay for the impure versions all over again. All I have to say is that LucasFilm had better press enough copies to satisfy demand or I will be a very unhappy camper amongst an overwhelming mob of geek rioters.

But, oh the joy! Han shooting first, no Hayden Christensen, and the return of my beloved Ewok song! Yub Nub!

Be aware that the grounds of retail stores will be littered with the bodies of those that try to get the limited release before I do.

I just got back from the midnight showing of Serenity, and it kicked my ass. I really really enjoyed it. I was a bit worried going into it, and I hope that the emotional impact of the film is as significant for those who haven’t seen the series, but I think it turned into a great sci-fi flick.

For those of you sci-fi fans who may have been living in a cave, the movie Serenity comes out this Friday. As I am sure you know, this film is based off of the wonderful, if short-lived television series Firefly.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I am a huge dork. There was a time in my life where I could have quoted the entirety of the movie Real Genius to you on demand.
