Last weekend saw the rerelease of the prequel of one of the Star Wars movies, because apparently no one's gotten tired of that shit yet. Rejiggered to now be in 3-D -- because no one's gotten tired of that shit yet, either -- a number of other changes are evident in the film when compared to its original theatrical release. There's a new Yoda now, some tweaked special effects and, probably, an extra 28 hours of scenes set in the Galactic Senate.
This is fairly typical for the Star Wars franchise, which has a long history of "special editions" and "rereleases" and something called "laserdiscs," all of which feature movies that are slightly different from each other. People who always have a little bit of fudge on their faces have tracked these changes exhaustively and, as is their way, at times have even gotten quite upset about them. News that Lucas was planning changes again with this latest rerelease even prompted threats of a boycott from these folks, news that delighted scientists who had created a device capable of measuring extremely small threats and were looking for something to calibrate it with.

Cool 3D -huh? Nice. I would like to go and see it in 3D. Lucas does need more money doesn't he --hehe.
I'm one of the few that found Jar Jar to be funny, right from the start, although not as funny as Mater, the rusty tow-truck, another character that a lot of people despised.
Yeah the best part was when Jar Jar got his tongue numbed and he couldn't talk. I think I really liked that part the best. I laughed at that.
I wish someone other than George Lucas would do an Old Republic movie.
Yeah would be cool
