    So thousands of years after the SW Universe, all that remains is this species, the ET species, who start to contact Earth.

    Very cool

    Sorry to hear you went and bought E.T.

    At least it is a good movie.

    Oh, and Darth, how do you know that there is no intergalatic travel? How do you know they can't communicate with us?

    "At least it is a good movie."

    The original, not the SE. ;)

    What's wrong with the SE of ET?
    Well... one thing, maybe.
    Here's my take on the SE of ET:

    When modifications were made to the EXISTING character, it looked better. When I compare the computer-enhanced ET to the footage they shot and had in the old movie, the new one wins hands down.


    In the brand-new, never-before-seen ET scenes, the all-CGI ET looks wrong. Just... the wrong color or something. I dunno. He's not as good as some of the other CGI folks floating around. And frankly I don't know if the new scenes help the film much.

    And as for the whole "walkie-talkie, guns" thing... if I hadn't been told about it, I'd never've noticed. Come on, it's three shots, people. It's fine either way. (Actually, one of the shots looks BETTER with the walkie-talkies. The actors weren't being menacing with the guns.) And I understand why Spielberg made the change.

    If I were to buy the film and the OE/SE came in seperate packages... I'd probably just base my decision on which one was cheaper.

    Rick McCallum loves you!

    Since we saw them in TPM, they are part of the Star Wars galaxy.

    The SE was fine except for the walkie talkies. If you look closely at their hands, they are holding them in a gun-like fashion with the index finger bend like wrapped around a trigger. Who holds walkies talkies in their hands at a police roadblock?

    To the person who said we are taking this too seriously, this is a Star Wars message board. Nothing on here is to be taken seriously. It is a forum to discuss things of entertainment value. It really irritates me when people make comments like this. If we only discussed things we took seriously, there wouldn't be a SW message board.

    Indeed, people take this far too seriously.
