  3. Even though "may the 4th be with you" makes you sound like a derp with a speech impediment, this is cool info. And I like Star Wars more than I like cheesecake.

    Too bad I don't give a rat's ass about Blu-Ray. >>; Soooo fexspensive.
     
  4. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFffffffffffffffffffff- -breathes- fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff

    Gosh darn it George!

    EDIT: But yay <3333

  6. ImsogoingtogetthisItotallyfuckinghavebluerayplayermang

    And yes, I'm fucking serious about the above nonspaced sentence.
     
  7. I have a PS3.

    IT'S AWESOME.

    (Dark Knight is amazing on blu-ray).
     
  8. *goes to make a joke about PS3s and Blu-Ray players and decides not to* HOORAY RE-RELEASES OF EVERYTHING!

  9. WHEN WE DISCOVER TIME TRAVEL AND DO IT IN 3D.

    AND NO, I DON'T JUST THINK THAT BECAUSE DARTH VADER IS ON THE COVER FOR IV V VI... >:[ *hides fangirly Darth Vader merch in a closet*
     
  11. -giggles at Fluffy, raids her closet and comes out in a Vader helm and various other garments-
    You know what this news reminds me of? A song.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLnWf1sQkjY

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ My exact feelings
     
  12. And if you really want to prolong things, well Revenge of the 5th.
     
  13. I like how people get butthurt about the prequels.... *You all have revealed something very important to me.*
     
  14. Like I've told you Rorybro, I like to pretend the prequels just don't exist. That way, I don't have to know that Darth Vader used to be a whiny wusspuss.
     
  15. In Ewan Macgreggor's words on the subject of the Star wars movies, "There is the Trilogy, and then those movies I was in."
     
  16. I liked the Phantom Menace including Jar-Jar (even if he's an offensive racist stereotype!) *waits to be boo'd and hissed at*
     
  17. Someday I'll get one of the authentic Darth Vader costumes. Then I'll take a day trip to Washington just to knock on Fluffy's door wearing it.
     
  18. Oh, well, since Chaos is doing it, I guess I won't. =/
     
  19. So, September seems so far away, and yet so close. I preordered them.

    I didn't mind the prequels as long as I didn't think of them as canon. Then I raged. Because if Vader was that much of a bitch as a kid, then why make the originals?
     
  20. Now now, I welcome any person dressed as Vader to my doorstep.
