How will you watch your shiny, new "Star Wars Trilogy" DVD set?
 
With the first two eps on DVD and now the coveted trilogy coming on Sept. 21, Do you plan on watching sometype of marathon? Doing the first 2 and then 4,5,6? Or just 4,5,6 and the docs, etc...

I am sure many have planned for this day, so how will you watch?? I myself am not completely sure...

I didn't think anyone was going to buy it...

I can't get the day off, so I'll just pick it up at lunch, and probably watch the documentary first (although I'll have to throw in ANH just to watch the star destroyer go by in remastered anamorphic sweetness). Have to wait for the weekend to really dive into the movies.

Got mine coming from Amazon, so I have no idea when it'll arrive, but surely before the weekend, so I'll probably do a marathon watch of just IV-VI on Saturday.

DavidH 09-12-04 01:43 PM

I'll watch each (4,5,6) on each consecutive night.

Jackskeleton 09-12-04 02:06 PM

I'm going to put all the disc in the dvd player at the same time and watch them all at once.....

nice. does that include 1 & 2 or just trilogy?

Kicker_of_Elves 09-12-04 02:09 PM

I'm gonna watch ep. 1, then ep. 2 and then pretend i'm watching ep. 3 for 2 hrs and THEN watch 4,5 and 6.


It will be a GLORIOUS night of entertainment.

We just got a surround sound system, so I'm very excited about watching all three in a row.

But the place I work at will get it for rent tomorrow, so I can watch the doumentary tomorrow night.

I'll watch the trilogy in order and not concern myself with the current trilogy which is incomplete. :)

That's my plan also. When Episode III eventually comes out, then I will probably have a 6-night marathon.

gutwrencher 09-12-04 03:36 PM

I'm taking that day off....because I'll be grabbing the box at midnight and staying up all night with buddies for a mini-marathon. I'll pass on stringing them all in a big heap.....I only have interest in the ones finally arriving.

bboisvert 09-12-04 04:12 PM

As a long-time Star Wars fan (you know, the type that has a lifesized Han in Carbonite in his home theater...), it pains me to say that...

I probably won't watch this for a couple of weeks after it comes out.


I have a new HDTV coming in during the next few days, and a few things to add/move around in my home theater. I suspect that it'll take me a couple of weeks to calibrate my TV and set up my new home theater optimally. So I'm going to hold off until everything is perfect.

(Then I'm going to watch all 3 straight in a super marathon session. I sure hope the neighbors decide to go out that day... 'cuz I ain't holding back. :) )

Kal-El 09-12-04 04:20 PM

Since I'm not getting the day off anymore, I'll probably check out the fourth disc the evening of the 21st and catch some key scenes here and there 'til the weekend.

How will you watch your shiny, new SW Trilogy DVD set? With my eyes ;)

Jokes aside... I'm starting with the cool documentary first.

island007 09-12-04 07:16 PM

I feel the 24-hour Flu coming on that day.

TomOpus 09-12-04 07:20 PM

I can't take the day off from work so I'll try to watch as much of the boxset that I can on release day.

LasVegasMichael 09-12-04 07:21 PM

I will watch the trilogy only, over a period of a couple days when it gets here.

Have not, and will not, own or watch any of the new ones.

ernestrp 09-12-04 07:25 PM

When I get around to it. I just got to Indiana Jones box set a couple of weeks ago even though I PM it at Best Buy on the release date.

Mountain Biker 09-12-04 07:47 PM

I'm going to watch Attack of the Clones....next I'm going to watch Return of the Jedi, followed by Star Wars...after that I'm going to watch The Phantom Menace and then the Bonus Disc...I'll finish it all up with The Empire Strikes Back.





:p

I won't have time to watch the trilogy. I'll be too busy reading all the Star Wars threads here, because, you know, there can never be too many Star Wars threads..

Well...you know it, dude!!!!

Just when you think it's safe to get back into the water....BAM!!!...Another Star Wars thread...

I am definitely picking them up at Midnight somewhere. I'll most likely watch the prequels before going to sleep and then when I get up marathon the OT plus extras.

JimRochester 09-12-04 08:39 PM

It'll be sometime after Christmas by the time I watch it so I'm not sure yet. We have the LD's so the DVD's will be a Christmas present for my son.

TylerDurden_73 09-12-04 08:43 PM

I want to see the documentary first, then the movies.

If you're going to do this why not just watch the prequels, got to bed, then when you wake up go buy the OT and watch it?
