|The Millenium Falcon, flying through space|
I'm a big Star Wars fan, not because I think it's somehow superior in content to Star Trek, but because the original movies were amazing, were done in stop-motion, and were just awesome to watch. It saddens me that the DVDs have been remastered so that all of the stop-motion stuff has been replaced with CGI, and it's just *not as good*. Everyone assumes that CGI is superior in special effects to everything else, but I think the o.g. Star Wars trilogy is the ultimate counter-example. That said, if anyone has the original VHS tapes and wants to share them, I have a VCR in top condition. We can be old-school together.
These considerations aside, and mostly because it's Friday, and I'm looking forward to a weekend in Ottawa with two of my girlfriends, and because I love walking around going "pew pew! pew pew pew!", I'm wearing my Millenium Falcon belt buckle. All shall behold its glory!
