Why in the f*** do Ewoks need CG eyes? Will I believe they're more real and try to adopt one? No.

I'm not old, you're just 12.

I might. I mean how awesome would it be to have your own Ewok? Sit him out in the yard, and if people trespass he'll jab them with a stick or throw rocks at them and shout "yub nub," and then possibly eat them. The Ewoks WERE cannibals, people forget that part. LOL. They were totally going to eat Han Solo.

Just speaking isn't thinking. By the speed and length of your reply, it's very doubtful that you actually took some time and thought about what you were going to say. I think it's much more likely that you just said the first thing that popped into your head as you were typing.

It's more than clear to me that you are just playing devil's advocate here... though not especially well.
You're totally wrong. I do think. I think with my own ideas and feelings about things, yes, but I think that they are completely reasonable. I have never said that what George Lucas is doing is necessary -- all I have done is see the point in why he could do it. I have been giving him justice and reason. I said it was okay for him to try this all out if he wishes. Everyone else is just, "No! No! No!" like Darth Vader in the revised scene from Return of the Jedi. I am saying, "Yes! Yes! Yes!" but it is not a hardened "Yes!"

Sometimes I don't say a lot because I don't always feel the need to back up certain arguments with facts, facts and more facts. I do go with my gut reaction but I assure you that it comes from a lifetime of thinking and assessing. I consider everything I say in here -- I do not type without thought.

Oh my god. They're like trolls from Troll 2.

If an argument isn't backed up with facts or reasoning -- if it is, as you say, the mere chemical emission of your bowels at the given moment of utterance -- then it would be much more proper to call it flatulence instead of argument, no?

It's one thing to back up something because of blind backlash (which this isn't), but to do it over something so blatantly stupid...I dunno.

Maybe they should add ghost CGI to the blair witch project. Or have the two dog-beasts in Ghostbusters bark like real dogs so we KNOW they aren't FAKE. Or change all the swords in Yojimbo to lightsabers to make it "timeless".

No. If you want my flatulence, come and get it.

The role that revision/remix plays in the identity/experience of an artwork is a legitimately interesting question and one which would probably take us to the depths of the very definition of art itself.

But if this is indeed this question you wanted to examine, you could not have picked a worse place to start. I think it is widely agreed upon that George Lucas has transformed into one of the most truly disgusting people in cinema today.

This is not to mention the fact that everything you say is already phrased as a fixed conclusion which you then proceed to defend to no end and for no reason other than the sheer act of defense.

This behavior is not thought.

I'll say what I want. If you don't like it, who cares? At least in my world, people can say whatever they feel like saying without coming into contact with your weird thought police policies.



Is your world the stone age? The fire's been invented, stop putting water on it
Honey, I am the fire.



People, people, let's stick to the topic: whether or not we should modify existing law so that we're legally allowed to physically hurt George Lucas.

Well, I told people not to underestimate the power of blinking Ewoks.

I don't know, Suspect. I learned my lesson the last time a quote made its way onto the web at convenient time. Can't remember what it was exactly for...oh yes, MLK and Bin Laden.

That wouldn't make them cannibals. To be cannibals, they'd have to've been eating other Ewoks.
