    Well I was just thinking off AOTC,but ya never know!!

    No need to bring the Trilogy on VHS,I have em on VCD's.Much better the VHS tapes,although they are just copied from the SE:Trilogy tapes.

    I've seen those. What does VCD stand for anyway?

    Well when we have the Drinking Game at my place, you could bring the VCDs, but I'm not sure if the PS2 can play them. I have the VHS trilogy for backup...

    I'll find out if it will play em.My friend has PS2 so I'll try em out on his first.The only downside to the VCD's (IMO) is that each movie is on 2 discs.

    Yeah, the two disc thing is a pain. But they'll make a good hold over until the OT is on DVD.

    1) Probably will be relased after E3.

    2) I bet you're not alone in that aspect... however, my hatred for e1 and my liking for e2 would kind of total up on the negative side.... you can only adore a movie so much... but you can hate one much more. I felt e2 was better than rotj and about the same as anh, but not nearly as good as esb. So it's tied for second on 'the list' and tpm isn't even on that one ;p

    Nothing comes close to the Trilogy, not even the prequals.

    IT's not two trilogies, remember. It's one hexology. ;)
