The Jedi scene that was deleted would have helped me



when I was kid seeing Jedi in 83'for the first time. I mean, back then when Jedi came out, kids didn't have the advantage of watching empire then going right to the movies to see the next flick.

LINK

as a kid you could barely remember that they were going to rendevouz on tattooine at the end of empire to find Han.

anyway

I like the scene, wish it would have stayed

To ally doesn't fit with the crappy movie. That and the throne room scenes were great. Everything else is shit

How short was your attention span?

Can we all agree that Jedi fails at putting the characters back together in a satisfying way?

well, when your nine years old, and theres a three year wait from Empire to Jedi, you don't have the dialogue from the last movie embedded in your brain.

As a kid, I loved it, save the Ewoks. As an adult with a scrutinizing eye, yes I must concede it's not a fantastic flick in any capacity

yes, it's a lazy effort

Back when Darth Vader wasn't a whily lil bitch, but a badass villain.

We had videotapes and cable channels back then.

I know it was a long time ago but we weren't complete barbarians back in the day.

Well actually, Star Wars wasn't released on VHS for years (you could get bootlegs though).

The only legit thing was buying a vinyl record of audio only. Easily I'm dating myself, I was 6 when SW was released.

ETA: Date myself more, I saw the original at a drive in and fell asleep. Saw it again a few weeks later and stayed awake. Elementary school was fun with all the little girls wanting to "play star wars".

I like the youtube clip of when this was first shown to the public at some Star Wars convention. The crowd starts going insane when Luke lights the saber up. It was awesome

They must have been on cable (at least Star Wars if not Empire) because I know I had a recording and I wasn't old enough to be circulating on the playground black market.

And I almost want to say they even had a re-release of the movies before Return came out.

I never had a copy of Empire on VHS, at least, not before Jedi was released, now a few years later I felt things were more accesible, but back then only rich kids had laserdisc. But for the most part, you were at the mercy of a re-release of the movie at the theater

Did you let them handle your light saber?

Rhetorical question is rhetorical.

Save the scenes with Luke and Vader, Jedi unequivocally blows it.

I'm going to say NO on both fronts. It is easily possible that I am incorrect, but this doesn't figure with what I remember at all.

they did, they also re-released Star Wars in 80'

But some of the younger generation seems to think all these movies were easily at our fingertips for our viewing pleasure when that was hardly the case

Laserdisc CLV (1982)

Laservision was thinking ahead of the curve in 1982. Offering the very first laserdisc presentation, Laservision made Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope available for home viewing on laserdisc. The format was a 12-inch platter recorded in CLV (Constant Linear Velocity), which allowed 60 minutes of film on each side requiring the viewer to flip it over, ultimately proving the suckiness of the past.

quote:

VHS, Beta, and Laserdisc CAV (1984-85)

In 1984, The Empire Strikes Back was released on VHS and Beta for home nerding pleasure. However if that wasn't exciting enough, the following year both Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back on laserdisc were presented in CAV (Constant Angular Velocity). This format was a godsend for nerds since it allowed a numerically ordered frame-by-frame view of the entire film, allowing them to dissect it in an organized manner.

Looks like the movies did get some semi-frequent theatrical releases though in the early 80's so that makes sense because I remember Empire in the theater a lot clearer than I should have considering my age in 1980 compared to late 1982.

And HBO got Star Wars in late 82 or early 83 (depending on the source) so that must be when I got my tape.

Yep. Makes perfect sense.

But easily they were not on cable or easily accessible. The "playground black market" was finding a kid whose family had laserdisc apparently.
