    The official site just announced THX-1138 on DVD to be released Sept. 14. One week before the trilogy. It's going to be two discs will include Lucas' original student film plus the feature has a Lucas commentery track. The website for the release is www.thx1138movie.com.
    For any of you Star Wars fans that haven't seen this movie much of what is in it is Star Wars in embryo, especially the sound effects. I've wanted this on DVD almost as bad as the trilogy, plus I've never seen this in the widescreen format ever. So this should be a fun time.

    I watched the trailer for this release and I noticed all sorts of alterations, meaning digital additions like in the star wars sepecial editions. It's very interesting.

    I think it would be a good idea to at least have a club screening of THX. It's not as accessible as Star Wars, but there are a lot of themes from THX that made it into SW.

    I would agree...we should probably warn everyone that you get to see ALL of Robert Duvall....

    Yes, this cut is rated R, and I think if the old cut was rateed today it would be R also. Mainly because of some nudity. so if that does make you uncomfortable you may want to opt out. On the other hand I hope the film find a new audience this time around. I think it will gain some people a better appreciation of Lucas as a film maker.

    I think we should get together. I have never seen this flick, but would love to know what you guys are always talking about. At least Robert Duvall was younger, right? So the nudity can't be that bad.

    So what's the verdict on this? Are we gonna watch this as a group? If so, where and when?

    I guess its just a matter of who wants to let us watch it at their place. I got my copy today and have been going through it.
    I have been really surprised at the new footage and the added special effects to this film. I think overall they help clarify a few things but I'm still in shock about changing the shell dwellers into bizarre mutant CG monkeya, but at the same time I thought it was kind of cool.
