The Yoda lightsabre fight is FUCKING SHITE. Completely against his character and unbelievably stupid. 

Some good souls have completed proper HD versions of the originals with all the dumb changes removed. You can find them easily on any torrent site.

I ended up buying the Despecialised Editions as none of the ones I downloaded wanted to playback. I realise I could’ve just downloaded some software to sort, but I found them cheap enough and they came in a nice case with a load of extras which I do t think had made home release before

I don’t think there are any rumours of releasing Original Uncut Trilogy any more than it is fans desperately clinging to hope. There was supposedly a “confirmed rumour” that the Rise of the Skywalker home release was coming with some sort of Ultimate Mega Director’s Cut, which of course turned out to be absolute twaddle 

It’s just the same stuff as the supposed Snyder Cut of Justice League that ‘definitely does exist, honest!’

It's Star Wars. Daftness is one of it's joys.

I've found the ones that take themselves seriously are the ones I've not enjoyed. The second they start talking about trade routes and politicians I lose interest. Give me Yoda Lightsaber fights and fighting a snake in a trash compactor all day.

they got their own spin off show called Droids. Most remarkable thing about it was the opening theme made by Stewart Copeland from The Police.

Fuck it, I wrote a thing about it. It's wacky as hell, with 3PO basically a metal Norman Wisdom, but expands on the SW universe in quite a pleasing way. It feels legit because Daniels does the voice, and they use all the movie sound effects, plus there's a cameo from the original trilogy (Fett, obviously). I did one about the Ewoks cartoon too, which is utterly abhorrent. Both shows are conspicuous by their absence on D+.

When it came out the Yoda fight was all me and my friends would talk about, I thought it was the coolest thing ever. Yoda, but flipping about all over the place! 
I’ve since come round to the view you have here. Flippy flippy Adam Cole Yoda is everything the original trilogy Yoda wasn’t - and while I accept Yoda can do all those moves, I can’t accept he’s stupid enough to think that’s the best use of his energy and power. Silly but not good silly. And this is me, who fully accepts daftness in a Star War and not two pages ago proclaimed Lady Proxima the giant worm lady to be great, so I don’t disown NXT Takeover Yoda lightly.

Question about The Mandalorian;

Do I need much Star Wars knowledge to get it? Or can I jump in pretty cold?

For clarity, I've only ever watched the films once (except Force Awakens which I've watched twice, and Rise of Skywalker which I've not watched at all), and I'm not really a massive fan of them outside Force Awakens, Solo and TLJ which I thought were ace. Not that keen on the original trilogy and thought the prequels were garbage. 

So I don't really have much knowledge of the universe at all, so will this impact Mandalorian? I can't be arsed watching it if I need to google a load of plot.

Stone cold Malvo. 

There is an artefact in the finale that benefits from knowledge of Clone Wars but nothing that will harm your enjoyment.

Definitely. After all his wise words and speeches on the importance of peace, avoiding conflicts and being luminous beings, not crude matter to see him flipping around with a lightsabre like a idiot is complete bullshit. The Yoda of the OT and PT are almost completely different characters.

Still cool though.

Revenge of the Sith is shite, so much so I can't be arsed with the original trilogy now. The turn into Darth Vader is so unsatisfying clunky and tediously melodramatic; like the sort of rubbish I'd come up as a kid playing with my Stretch Armstrong and Superman toys. All the set up and when it came down to it of course Uncle George fumbles the ball. Even Yoda's work rate can't sprinkle some magic on this.

Star Wars Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back

Good: 

Pretty much all of it. 

Bad:

My wife pointed out Han’s arms were tied when he’s getting frozen but they’re not tied when he comes out.
Han is a little rapey.

Overall what’s to say? It’s pretty much a perfect film. I had this and episode 4 neck and neck about halfway through but by the end it’s a clear winner. My wife pointed out halfway through she prefers these ones over the prequels because they all talk like actual people. Han’s “I know” is a class line and again the practical effects are great. The AT-ATs looked amazing.

Some of it is so beautifully shot, especially the Cloud City stuff and the Luke/Darth fight. The soundtrack stands out too.

Can’t really say anything bad about it. Great film.

The order is 5, 4, Solo, 2, 1, 3, Rogue.

 

Side note -

I will say watching them Chronologically including standalones is starting to show some pretty big plot cracks and complete 180s on character behaviour. I’m mostly ignoring this when giving thoughts or we’d be here all day. I will say Han Solo in Solo is not the same guy as the main series.

So class that I have it on my wedding ring.  Yeah, I'm one of those.
