Thought: In response to the latest George Lucas controversy…

For the past week or so, George Lucas, the man who created “Star Wars” is in a huge backlash because he made changes with the new Blu Ray’s. In the “Return of the Jedi” Blu Ray he made Darth Vader scream, “Noooo”, while Emperor Palpatine is shooting electricity at Luke. They also replaced Yoda’s puppet character into a CGI version of Yoda for the original trilogy.

What I find hilarious is the Star Wars fans hating on George Lucas now when they should have been hating on him a long time ago? I’ve lost my respect for George ever since he re-did the original trilogy to add some scenes and add more special effects. Plus, I hated the prequels. “The Phantom Menace” and “Attack of the Clones” were garbage films, I didn’t like them at all. I must say that “Episode III: Revenge of the Sith” was actually a pretty good movie though.

I’m a George Lucas hater like a lot of you. Hey, don’t get me wrong, I LOVED the original movies before George decided to mess with them. I’m just sick of seeing Star Wars everywhere. We already got a Star Wars animated series going on now, “Attack of the Clones”, and there is a possible Star Wars live action TV series on the way too.

Why is it that George concentrates on Star Wars only and he can’t do something original? It’s because he’s a HACK! In other words, he sucks. He mostly does Star Wars for most of his life because he’s only successful at that and nothing else. If he tries something different, it fails. Look what he did to Indy IV, “The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”, perfect example.

No offense to Star Wars fans, I find Star Wars overrated. I’m a Star Trek guy, big time. I like Star Trek more, ’cause they tell actual stories. Star Trek is insightful, and more entertaining. I wish people wouldn’t knock Star Trek because a lot of people find it boring. I don’t find it boring.

Sure, don’t get me wrong, I respected George Lucas’s legacy he created with Star Wars back in the day, but now he’s a fucking joke. He’s got a really big ego and another reason he continues to work with Star Wars is because it helps make him money. He don’t need to work. He should have retired a long time ago after the original trilogy. How many more versions of Star Wars can George come up with? I don’t think he’s going to stop anytime soon.

Tomorrow is a big release day!!!

Two HUGE releases are set for tomorrow. Yes, the “Superman – The Motion Picture Anthology” comes out on Blu Ray (It’s for Blu Ray only, the new “Superman” set won’t be available for DVD, I don’t think) and “Duke Nukem Forever” video game both hits the shelves tomorrow.

Yes, I plan on getting both of these. I will get the “Duke Nukem” game first sometime this week.

I do plan on getting the “Superman” Blu Ray set but I’m going to wait for several weeks to save up cash for it, ’cause obviously the “Superman” Blu Ray set is very expensive. I really want it really fucking badly though ’cause you all know that I’m such a die hard Superman fan. The Superman set looks fantastic. The Superman set doesn’t only have the 5 Superman films which includes Bryan Singer’s “Superman: Returns”, it also has a bunch of Superman animated films and a few documentaries. Plus I heard the sound and the picture of the 5 films is way better than regular DVD. I’m so definitely getting the Superman set sometime, not right now though.

I’m excited for “Duke Nukem”. Glad the release date is staying for June 14th and not being pushed back anymore. The game is finally here! I fuckin’ love “Duke Nukem”, man. Used to be obsessed with the older games back when I was in high school. Used to play the older games on the PC for hours.

The new “Duke Nukem” game will probably sell pretty well. So will the new Superman Blu Ray set.I am noticing that Blu Ray discs are becoming way more popular than regular DVD’s. DVD sales are dropping while Blu Ray sales are going up. I would like to start a Blu Ray collection and buy more but they are pretty pricey. I want to get the Superman Blu Ray so maybe that’ll be the start of my Blu Ray collection. I do have a few Blu Rays. The only Blu Ray discs I have in my movie collection are “WWII in HD” and “Memento – 25th  Anniversary”. I could buy all my favorite movies on Blu Ray and sell the same film on DVD to get rid of it.

I’m just waiting for the prices on the Blu Ray discs to drop down. The prices will drop, the more popular Blu Ray gets, just give it time. It will happen.That’s what happened with DVD when DVD first came. DVD’s were very expensive when they were first invented but DVD prices dropped the more popular they get. Same will happen with Blu Ray.

Memento Blu Ray giveaway contest coming this week…

I once talked about in a blog post that I will host my very first contest giveaway for this blog. Something I’ve never done before, and I hope to do more giveaways like this, when other companies ask me to help promote something here.

I will be giving away only 1 copy, of the “Memento” Blu Ray, and a poster came along with it too. It’s the “Memento – 10th Anniversary Edition”.

The contest will be a trivia game. Yes, the trivia question will have something to do with the movie and I’ll try to make the question easy. It’s a bad idea to make the question too difficult ’cause people won’t participate in the contest like that.

The contest will be exclusive in a videoblog for youtube later this week. I will post the video soon.

Thanks to Cinedigm for this opportunity.

I watched my own copy of the “Memento” Blu Ray a couple of nights ago. It plays great and sounds great. It’s a great film. It’s my favorite Christopher Nolan movie.
