Star Wars title

Read an article today at TG Daily saying that Lucasfilm will start production on 3-D Star Wars with The Phantom Menace.

The plan is to re-release all six Star Wars movies in 3-D in "episode" order: starting with The Phantom Menace and ending with Return of the Jedi.

However, if The Phantom Menace does not perform well enough, the studio may scrap the remaining five 3-D adaptations.

Lucasfilm (particularly you, Rick McCallum): if you're worried that the 3-D Star Wars movies aren't going to do well enough to warrant releasing all three real Star Wars movies and their crappy trilogy of ret-con-tastic "prequels", then why don't you start with the good ones? The ones that are actually worth watching?

Nobody wants to see The Phantom Menace again. Let alone if they have to spend over $10 to see it in theaters! If you ask me, The Phantom Menace is already in two too many dimensions! 

The prequels shouldn't be celebrated or remastered. They are complete, inexcuseable trash - every one of them! If anything, they should be scrapped and remade entirely. Don't re-release them in 3-D.

Why not adapt the original trilogy first? You know fanboys as well as cinema buffs and even the casual audience will see those. Regardless of whether it's in 3-D or not!

Who in their right mind would pass up an opportunity to see a cinematic masterpiece like The Empire Strikes Back again in theaters? Or, in the case of younger geeks, see it in theaters for the first time? The very idea brings a nostalgic, geek-fan-boy tear to my eye.

The Empire Strikes Back - Hoth battle
If you have the opportunity to make ^this^ in 3-D...
The Phantom Menace - Jar Jar Binks
Don't pass it up by first releasing ^this^ in 3-D!

Rick McCallum (and Lucasfilm in general), PLEASE reconsider your decision to start with The Phantom Menace!

I know nobody from Lucasfilm will read this blog, but if anybody out there reads it who can link to it in a more active forum where somebody important might actually read it, please do so.

The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one.  I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say.  All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.

Humble suggestions for improving Dark Souls II onlineHumble suggestions for improving Dark Souls II online09/22/2014 I recently posted my much-belated review of Dark Souls II. In it, I criticized the game for having lackluster online components, but didn't go into much detail other than to say that Soul Memory seems like a non-optimal matchmaking method and that invasions are rare and reserved for elite players. I wanted to take a moment to...

Rumors suggested that Electronic Arts or even Activision might buy them out. Fortunately for the consumers, neither of those rumored deals was made! We all saw how Activision handled its ownership of Guitar Hero, effectively running the franchise (and possibly...
