Still seems like a lot of money for one decent movie.

Return Of The Jedi?

Seriously? You think that's better than Empire? More and more I'm convinced you're one of the subtlest trolls I've ever seen gel...

If i was really a troll, don't you think people would have nailed me by now mate?

That's what makes it so subtle. It was a compliment btw...


Internet Explorer?

Also Princess Leia in that scene, in Jabba's Palace is seriously, seriously hot.

So would you be sitting that close to a fat slug like that...

I currently only own Return Of The Jedi on dvd, and it has always been my favourite - i watched the ending alot as a demo as well for my system. I did own them all on dvd, but sold them for these blu ray releases, but just had to buy R O T J again. Also Princess Leia in that scene, in Jabba's Palace is seriously, seriously hot.

I actually did see Princess Leia in Milton Keynes not that long again, at one of the Collectormania events, not quite as i remember her from Star Wars now, but who is? Smile

You worry me, gel – but strange how that 'Chelsea buns on the side of the head' look never came back in to fashion, isn't it?

It's taken this long?

Surely it's only a matter of time, given what I saw in Next this weekend, t-shirts, with built-in snoods.

For men...

Yes, I hear she's quite the fan of MAGIC: The Gathering, probably trying to finish her collection, so she can whoop Han's butt. #notreally!

not quite as i remember her from Star Wars now, but who is? Smile

Yes, I imagine you're not running around in short trousers any more. I really hope not at any rate...

So there is a surprise on the soundtrack - never thought it would be on DTS , either DTS or Master Audio. I thought it was going to be odds on Dolby True High Definition. It must be master audio - surely? Quite pleased either way to be honest, but would be alot happier on Master Audio.

I actually recently 'downgraded' from 7.1 to 5.1 for two reasons. Firstly, there just simply weren't enough 7.1 Blu-ray discs around. Secondly, I have bi-amped my front speakers, which has a benefit with all my AV listening :)

Yeah, i know what you mean on the discs, when blu ray first come out i was really excited with the thought of 7.1 blu ray discs, i very nearly bought a 7.1 setup because of it. Looking back now i definitely think i made the right decision on 5.1 due to the lack of them now, and i might have possilby had to change some things in my set-up, which i have to say i am very, very happy with.

I definitely will not change my speakers, blu ray player or amp.
