Sigh…George Lucas is Bringing More Changes to the Original STAR WARS Trilogy

Published

on

I think we’ve all become numb to George Lucas’ constant ‘tweaking’ of his original STAR WARS trilogy.  Whether he’s making it ‘better’ or not, be prepared to shake your head once more, because the man has made just a few more changes.

According to Badass Digest, to keep some kind of weird continuity with the now infamous “NOOOOOOO!!!” scream at the end of REVENGE OF THE SITH, Lucas has looped in a similar yell at the end of RETURN OF THE JEDI, when Darth Vader throws the Emperor off the Death Star bridge.

But that’s not all…apparently the tiny shriek that ObiWan uses to get rid of the Sandpeople was bothering him so much, he decided to replace that with something that somewhat resembles the cliched Wilhelm Scream.

Take a look at the adjusted scenes below, and let us know what you think. (Note that the footage itself is from a previous release, dubbed with the new leaked audio.)

UPDATE: Thanks to JoBlo,com, we have a very cool quotation from Lucas speaking for a new legislation that would protect films and ensure the public had access to the director’s original cut.  He said,

“People who alter or destroy works of art and our cultural heritage for profit or as an exercise of power are barbarians, and if the laws of the United States continue to condone this behavior, history will surely classify us as a barbaric society. The preservation of our cultural heritage may not seem to be as politically sensitive an issue as ‘when life begins’ or ‘when it should be appropriately terminated,’ but it is important because it goes to the heart of what sets mankind apart. Creative expression is at the core of our humanness. Art is a distinctly human endeavor. We must have respect for it if we are to have any respect for the human race.

These current defacements are just the beginning. Today, engineers with their computers can add color to black-and-white movies, change the soundtrack, speed up the pace, and add or subtract material to the philosophical tastes of the copyright holder. Tomorrow, more advanced technology will be able to replace actors with “fresher faces,” or alter dialogue and change the movement of the actor’s lips to match. It will soon be possible to create a new “original” negative with whatever changes or alterations the copyright holder of the moment desires…In the future it will become even easier for old negatives to become lost and be ‘replaced’ by new altered negatives. This would be a great loss to our society. Our cultural history must not be allowed to be rewritten.”

Ironic much?

Wonder What Walter From GoDaddy Was Thinking While Kissing Bar Refaeli?

A split second after GoDaddy’s 30-second Super Bowl aired on Sunday night, I’m pretty sure a collective shudder was felt across the country.  So many people were either disgusted or disturbed, and like watching a train wreck right in front of you, there was no way to avert your eyes.

So with all that, you have to wonder…what the hell was Walter thinking?

In a new interview with Access Hollywood, Walter, aka actor Jesse Heiman, had only four words to describe his make out session with super model Bar Refaeli:

“It tastes like paradise.”

Heiman, who is also known as the “World’s Greatest Extra” for appearing in a ridiculous number of films and television shows over the past 15 years, said that he lost count of the number of takes because he was just enjoying every moment:

“There was like 45 to 65 takes, I lost count. I just enjoyed each one like it was the first one. We just had a fun time making it.”

So how did Heiman get the part in the first place?  Apparently, it had nothing to do with his looks and experience, but everything do so with a stand-in kisser and his kissing skills:

“I won the job based on my kissing skills…She picked out the best one…I’m just a natural I guess.”

So what did the 34-year-old actor think about his performance?  While he loved every second of the gig, he did have a little critique after seeing the unrated extended spot in studio:

“My tongue seems to have a mind of its own.”

No, Jesse, I’m pretty sure that’s your mind making it do that…just saying…

Bound PassengerRemember that news story about the passenger who got so drunk and unruly that the crew duct taped him to his chair and gagged him? Now there’s video of him just after being bound. 

The video was shot on an Icelandair flight to New York City’s JFK airport on New Year’s Eve. 46-year-old Gudmundur Karl Arthorsson allegedly consumed a large amount of duty-free liquor and became unruly and aggressive with passengers and crew.

WRETCHED VIDEO: Worst Example Of Autotune EVER.

Published

on

The whole idea of autotune is that it’s supposed to ENHANCE vocals, not replace them. This is quite possibly the worst autotuned song you have ever heard. Your ears may bleed. It’s called “Party @ Ur House” by Thamys. You will never go so hard on mainstream pop stars again.

Don’t blame me, I’m just the messenger.
