Lucasfilm might be listening in !

    Is CGI taking over Hollywood?
    The Star Wars movies we're always ahead of their time in Special effects. Nowaday, most, if not all the special effects in a movie are done by computer graphics an animations. They are cheap, relatively fast to create and very close to reality. What is the impact of CGI on Hollywood? How far will it go? Does the actors, the artisants and the film industry itself needs to worry about the growing place that CGI is taking in movies right now and in the future? Send your comments or phone number (for us to call) to studio@swendirect.com.

    For our secondary subject we'll simply speculate on the mysterious changes that are coming for the Official Star Wars Fan Club as announced on their web page.

    We've also learned, from a reliable source, a major information conserning an extra that will be on the Original Trilogy DVD. Stay tuned.

    This should be an interesting one! ;)

    This sunday's show will be about Star Wars Message Boards. Here's the details...

    The Official Boards, TFN's Jedi Council, The Galactic Senate, and others. On this show we'll be dissecting the major SW message boards and give our own opinions. But our opinion doesn't necessarily represent the common fan. So where asking you, "politics aside",...

    - Do you participate and/or lurk on message boards and why?
    - Which board(s) do you prefer and why?
    - How much time do you spend on boards?
    - What is the behavior of users / moderators?
    - Any good or bad experiences?


    You have any other comments to make, anonymously or not, send them, or your phone number (for us to call) to studio@swendirect.com.

    Live Broadcast begin at 7PM Eastern !

    Don't forget that if you want to discuss a topic with us Live on the phone during our show, send us you number by e-mail. We will call you (if you're in the chatroom).

    As usual we'll do a couple of movie review just before we go into Star Wars mode (The Day After Tomorrow & Super Size Me) as well as playing one of Ithorian's parody SW songs.

    Thanks for listening.
