    Why are the Star Wars graphics so crappy for iTunes? It shouldn't be that hard to photoshop together good looking SW banners. Even the individual movie thumbnails are horribly composed. The episode names at the bottom are unforgivably bad design, they don't even need to be there, since the movie name pops up below.

    I'm guessing this is a Disney whiff. If you look at their AppleTV icons they are also a crime committed by the same clueless designer. Each one has "watch" written across the icon, cluttering up their own channel logos. Pretty sure even the dumbest of children can figure out that DisneyXD is for "watching"... ya know... like on the TV.

    Gunna have to force choke Goofie at the next shareholders meeting.

    Thats for POS movies.  For the big movies no way studios will allow you to rent the same time they come out in theaters unless they charge $30+

    You didn't set that condition initially. You said 'never' which is not ever, and I pointed out that it has.

    Btw, you must be an expert riding a bicycle backwards with all the back peddling you do.

    until you realize you don't actually own the content.  Read the fine print.  You are given a license to view the material but you never own the actual content.

    With a blu-ray version I own the content and can share it with anyone I please.  Plus it has superior video and true uncompressed audio.

    Read the fine print: you are licensed to use the content on Blu-Ray. You don't own it. Licensing restrictions on what you can do with that Blu-Ray still apply. You may not, for example, broadcast that content. You may not show it in a public space. You may not remove the DRM.

    So just because the story wasn't what YOU imagined its not cannon?

    Wow.  What delusions of grandure you have.  Make your own damn space opera then.

    Spoil the surprise?  WTF man.  Lucas said you should watch the OT first and then the PT.  Seriously smoking weed you are.

    Do I think the PT is as good as the OT?  Hell no.  But I can appreciate what they are.  And how on EARTH could Anakin and Obi-Wan still be good friends at the end of Episode3 if Anakin was a cold blooded murderer?  You are making ZERO sense.

    It was not possible to keep the Father/Son secret with the PT.  What where they to do?  Not show Luke/Leia birth?  Were they not to show how Vader became Vader?  I mean WTF guy.  Explain to me how they could possible keep that secret throughout the PT without seriously hurting the story line.

    "Trhee was never a need to see Anakin as a child and the audience never needed to see Anakin become Vader."

    Speak for yourself.  I wanted to see Anakin as a child and become Vader.  Dude you need some help.

    If Lucas had maintained the narrative, episodes 1-3 would not have been written the way they were.

    Don't be thick, soggy.

    Darth Vader as a child murderer is unredeemable and cannot become the father saved from damnation at the end of ROTJ. Darth Vader as easily fooled and manipulated by Palpatine is a loser and a chump, not the cool badass of A New Hope.

    I wonder why April 10, but it's a good sign future releases will be released digitally and as physical copies. Hoping for a bundle price, but yes I have the blu-rays, but for long flights I wouldn't mind taking these along on my ipad.

    how were they suppose to be written?  you tell me.

    You mean you are completely unable to imagine a prequel trilogy with fighter pilot buddies and a whole host of supporting characters using the broad outline I already mentioned I imagined as a kid? Really? Where is your creativity?

    LOL.  Movie studios would never allow their BRAND NEW movies to rent for $5.

    Seriously.  What are you smoking.

    Your not paying attention, studios already do that for some movies.
    Releasing it before BlueRay is another smart idea.

    Of course I can.  And I did.  I wrote a short summary of Episode3 before it came out.  It was nothing like what Lucas wrote.  But who cares.  That's not my universe.  

    Go write your own universe.  Stop telling someone (Lucas) how his universe suppose to be like.

    You do understand that Lucas no longer makes the decisions, right? And the script for Episode VII was completely reworked by JJ Abrams?

    No movie that went STRAIGHT to video made even close to $100,000,000.

    Mainly because they didn't need to make $100 million to recover the cost of making them.

    I'm not the dummy who said that movie studio's should release all their movies for rent on OPENING DAY for $5.

    That is flat out stupidity.  Do you realize how much $ they would lose doing something that stupid?

    I never said I agreed with it, and yes you're absolutely correct. It would be an unwise decision.

    You know of a war veteran who knowingly and purposefully massacred a school of children?  If so, I suggest you talk to the authorities because that is a very serious war crime.

    I would wager that a greater proportion of straight-to-rental movies are financially successful than theatrical releases.

    Who on earth said that?  It's like you're arguing with imaginary people.

    Not quite. Abrams re-worked, re-worked script was deemed unworthy and Lawrence Kasdan was later brought in to help/save the project.

    He's such a lazy, franchise cockroach, can't wait for Rian Johnson to take over before it all gets Abramsed.
