Actually, so is this:
That's just too damn funny. You've done it now George you pissed off Hitler, way to go buddy lol...
It's still funny, but not as effective if you've seen the old videos over the years. That Downfall clip has literally been re-subtitled a million times on YouTube.
The best will always be the Downfall of HD-DVD clip...
That was the best one! :evil: I could remember seeing that way back when, but couldn't recall exactly what it was a parody of.
There is some good news about this set; I've heard from IMDB and OriginalTrilogy.com that the set has the original 2005 theatrical version of ROTS (there was a wipe that was cut from the DVD release and has been restored for the Blu-Ray).
You're joking, right?
Usually at this point the poster making the joke uses one of the emoticons to signify humor.
That's the spirit!!!!
No I'm not. Here's the proof:
See post #6595.
I always thought the DVD of ROTS was the theatrical cut. I knew TPM and AOTC were altered cuts. Hmm....
Well technically, the AOTC version on DVD WAS a theatrical cut, but it was the digital theatrical version:
"The Digital Theatrical Version (and DVD/VHS release, which was based on this master) features several small additions to the standard (70mm/35mm) theatrical version of the film:
In the Lars Homestead, after Anakin has confessed his slaughter of the Tuskens and slumped to the floor, Padmé states, "To be angry is to be human," and Anakin responds, "I'm a Jedi! I know I'm better than this!"
Before Jango Fett is killed by Mace Windu, the sparks coming out of his damaged jetpack are much more visible.
After falling from the gunship and eventually awakening, Padmé replies to the Clonetrooper's question of concern with a painfilled "Uh-huh" instead of "Yes."
During the wedding scene, Padmé taking Anakin's mechanical hand has been inserted instead of a shot of Anakin's false arm and a pan up."
Why is it everytime I read this thread, I keep hearing David Bowie. chchchanges!!!!
I meant joking as in, who gives a shit about ROTS?
New scene that Lucas incorporated in Episode IV...
:lol: yeah, thats what i thought you meant.

And here's confirmation that Lucas is every bit as cheap as I thought he was. From The Digital Bits:
"It's fairly common knowledge that the Blu-rays were mastered from the same HD scans that were used for the DVD release back in 2004. That means these transfers are at least 8 years old - very far from state of the art. To make matters worse, those scans were done at near HD resolution - not the 4K, 6K, or even 8K of current negative scans for film restoration and BD release purposes, but essentially 2K (something like1828x1556 for a scope film image), which was eventually exported to 480p for DVD (and later 1080p for Blu-ray)."
I'm sure it's expensive to transfer at higher resolutions. But why spend so much money on digital manipulation of outdated masters? Won't all of that work need to be redone when we get the inevitable 2.0 Blu-ray release?
And then there's the ultimate irony. Surely it would have cost Lucas less money to do spectacular 8k transfers of the unaltered original trilogy films. But he decided to spend the money to make even more unwanted changes to the outdated masters.
As much as I hate the guy he'd make an amazing subject for an abnormal psychology book.
