Watching All Six Star Wars Movies Simultaneously

Zonk posted more than 8 years ago | from the nice-job-dork dept.

Star Wars Prequels 332

DavidSJ writes "WeirdHat created a video of all Star Wars movies being played simultaneously, side-by-side, and then watched it. Some notable finds: the first appearance of Palpatine in The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones is on the same frame. Also, the Jedi Rocks music in Episode VI provides amusing accompaniment to the Anakain/Obi-Wan vs. Dooku fight in Episode III."

Too bad their clever marketing tactic was only unveiled 23 years after it was released to the public, in 1995, when a stoner was listening to Dark Side on headphones while his little sister watched Wizard of Oz.

Some lesser known discoveries by this pioneer include the correlation between 'Detachable Penis' by King Missile and the trailer for 'The Crying Game', and the uncanny choreography of Slayer's 'Reign in Blood' with the second half of 'Shallow Hal'. Try it yourself, you'll be AMAZED!

I know I'm out of date here and all what with having only watched the first three original films (which I was not particularly impressed by) int he late 1990s, when I was about 20 and having only seen one of the three new films.

However, what on earth draws this kind of thoughtless, stupified devotion to such a mediocre franchise? I'm not saying the movies sucked - but they're only great in the way that Knight Rider seemed like a great TV show when you were five years old and doesn't hold up today, when you're 30.

Yay! My first response to flamebait! (5, Insightful)

Descalzo (898339) | more than 8 years ago | (#14013029)

I'm sorry, but if you can't appreciate The Empire Strikes Back as a grown-up, then you grew too far up.

Think about it: It's a funny movie, but it has no gags or outright jokes. It's a romantic movie, with only like 2 quick kisses. It's even an action movie, but there aren't even all of the expolosions like in a Lethal Weapon movie. Every good guy gets the crap kicked out of him, and you still leave it with a hopeful feeling. I have only discussed the story, and haven't even begin to touch the vast differences between the beauty of the worlds created by these people.

I realize that you have a right to an opinion, but I think you were out of line using words like thoughtless or stupefied, especially if you enjoy spending lots of time on other activities, like TV or video games.

Re:Yay! My first response to flamebait! (1)

Seumas (6865) | more than 8 years ago | (#14013073)

Again, the starwars movies might have seemed amazing back in 1977, but how can you watch them with a straight face today? It's difficult. It's similar to trying to watch Buck Rogers or Battle Star Galactica (the original) with a straight face. The only thing remotely good about the original three was Harrison Ford, because he played that role just perfect (and with a hinted edge of Iniana Jones to come).

And I can't even comment on the most recent films, except that I hope they improved after the first one... which... was just attrocious.

I'm not saying Star Wars isn't good for a boring saturday afternoon. But to watch it more than once? Or repeatedly? Or obsessively? Hell, RHPS folks make even more sense than that. RHPS is a crappy film, too - but at least they indulge in the campiness. Star Wars folks actually believe that Star Wars is the ultimate cinematic masterpiece and that it's such a great and unique (though ripped off) story.

So if you wouldn't call watcdhing all six films simultaneously "thoughtless" what WOULD you call it?

Re:Yay! My first response to flamebait! (1)

shotgunefx (239460) | more than 8 years ago | (#14013110)

I hate all the new movies, but the first three are still great if imperfect movies.

Comparing it to Battlestar Galactica is a bit of a reach. I loved that show growing up. I recently bought it. Somehow in my memories of the show, I forgot about the trip to the cannibal disco planet. lol

Re:Lame. (-1, Troll)

You also notice that anyone who doesn't swear their ultimate loyalty to this mediocre waste of time franchise is labeled a "flamebait" and a "troll"? After all, nobody in the world could possibly not think the movies are the best cinema EVER and actually mean it, huh?

This is just as off-topic, but did it annoy anyone else that C3PO/R2D2 uses an external radio receiver with a speaker to hear Luke and the others? These are intelligent and advanced robots we are talking about. At the very least they should be able to plug the thing into a line input (and avoid problems with Imperial guards investigating noises), and I don't think it is unreasonable to think they have inbuilt radio receivers.

MS-06FZ (832329) | more than 8 years ago | (#14013200)

C-3PO was a pussy anyway. Everybody knows that.

But KITT would probably arrive in Mos Eisley and his wheels would do that Back To The Future 2 hover-conversion thing, and he'd fly into space and blow away some TIE fighters with his hidden laser cannons and stuff. But he'd probably wind up getting swayed by the Dark Side of the Force, and become Darth Vader's personal fighter. But he'd watch Vader's back - there'd be none of that crap with the Millennium Falcon flying out of nowhere to shoot his wingman, or his other dur-head wingman running into Vader, KITT would do some evasion and blow Luke to hell, then turn around and blow away Solo and the Wookie - and then Lando, for good measure. I know Lando hadn't gotten involved in the story yet at that point but KITT would've been all over that. It's called a pre-emptive strike. AI knows how to get it done.

No, it doesn't. Just start the CD on the MGM lion's third roar.

Re:Like Wizard + Dark Side of the Moon (1)

Elwood P Dowd (16933) | more than 8 years ago | (#14013067)

Any recent release of The Wizard Of Oz has a several second long text overlay in the beginning, so the old method of pressing play when the lion roared is no longer effective. It's tricky, but still it's at least as much fun as listening to Dark Side of the Moon without a video to go along, and that's a lot of fun.

Re:Like Wizard + Dark Side of the Moon (1)

AdmiralWeirdbeard (832807) | more than 8 years ago | (#14013225)

not to get too technical, but you press play on the third roar of the lion, there's a several second delay between 2nd and 3rd roars, so this is key.

those who have not done the combo viewing should definitely do so at their earliest conveniece. there are some rather amazing synchronicities, both in terms of rhythym and content.

obviously this experience could be enhanced with the addition of the proper preparation on your part.

Re:Can Men Multitask? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 8 years ago | (#14013047)

Men and women are equally capable of multitasking according to all reliable studies by psychologists/neurologists.

The myth that only women can multitask is propagated mainly by feminists with inferiority complexes who believe that to make themselves better they must put down others. The obvious counterexamples (men being leading chefs, highstress jobs like pilots, etc) serve to make a mockery out of it.

If you don't believe me, you can do a quick search on PubMed for "multitask" and "gender".

I know you were joking, but please don't continue the stereotype - it's as damaging as saying "a woman's place is in the home"...

Wouldn't the people with "too much free time" be those who watched all six films SEPARATELY? i.e. the ones who spent 12 hours watching them all instead of two?

Re:As my friends would say... (2, Interesting)

Krach42 (227798) | more than 8 years ago | (#14013090)

But you have to realize that he had to BUILD that movie also. And at best, he'd have to have lugged six TVs all together, getting them all going in sync. But considering that he knows the Emperor Palpatine entrance to the frame, and TFS (summary) says that he encoded a film with all 6 movies on it...

I'd honestly say the guy spent more time than the 5 shorter movies thinking this crazy stuff up, and in all the logistics.

Anyways, the expression "Too much freetime" refers not to the efficiency of time spent, but rather what that time was spent on. If it's outright frivalous and stupid, then it's too much freetime.

I mean, I can only imagine that someone with tons of idle time on their hands would even THINK of this idea...

Guys, with free file-hosting services like rapidshare.de, I don't understand why no one bothers to upload these files there so the rest of us can enjoy, too.

I swear I was just thinking in the past two or three days about doing this very thing, and I'd never heard of anyone else doing it. There must be just too damn many Star Wars geeks if they all think of things at the same time like this.

Too bad I don't have the equipment to facilitate actually doing this myself. Mind you, I believe I'd have to take it to truly ridiculous extremes with all the TV spinoff material (the Droids, Ewoks and Clone Wars cartoons, the live-action Ewok movies, The Star Wars Holiday Special). I'm sure I can scare more people away from me permanently if I try hard enough...

Long movie night (1)

msbsod (574856) | more than 8 years ago | (#14013172)

I still remember my first long Star Trek movie night with the first 6 movies in one night at the local movie, with friends and breakfast in the morning. This time I will organize the same at home for a Star Wars night, with good food and drinks. There are still a lot of people who have not seen all Star Wars movies yet. But somehow I doubt any of my friends likes to watch all 6 movies side-by-side, though.

Surely you mean watching *THREE* Star Wars movies side-by-side.

There's only three. Right...?

Instead of the stupid special editions wheey Gweedo fires first. dumb dumb dumb. I am keeping my old VHS just so I can watch the pure and correct versions of Star Wars. I can't wait for this movie to go public domain so that people will be able ot legally fix the movies and watch them the way they were meant to be seen (without all the stupid animal shots on tatooine and with han Solo Cooly blowing the green snot out of Gweedo.

... and did you know that in the video of Bill Gates and the Blue Screen of Death, the crash is exactly at the same frame as he gets a pie in his face in this other video?

Come on, anyone can pick one of the topics that are popular on Slashdot, find some video clips, play them simultaneously and make a statement about it.

- That doesn't make it "News for Nerds. Stuff that matters."
