    Are they going to replace the guns with walkie talkies?

    That's the only reason I'm excited about it.

    Doctor it in any way and I'm out.

    Don't turn into the crusty queen in your avatar. ;)

    I'd probably check it out. Temple of Doom would be awesome in Imax.

    I just saw Raiders on the big screen a couple of months ago. I guess I can see it again.

    Here's my hope. If this works out, maybe we'll see more classic movies in IMAX. When I was watching Prometheus, I was thinking I'd go to "Lawrence in Arabia in IMAX." It would be great to see Star Wars in IMAX, but unless we have some rebel badass of a projectionist, we'd be stuck with [​IMG].

    I can't do that.

    Spielberg later apologized for making those changes in E.T.

    I think he has a new appreciation for keeping the old stuff untouched. From what I've seen about the Jaws Blu-Ray, it is a massive project intended to restore the original to top condition without changing anything. The only digital stuff they did on that was to clean up certain scratches and flaws from the original reels, but they did it using footage from other frames in the sequence, as opposed to creating from scratch.

    I wouldn't mind seeing more classic films reset in IMAX as
    long as the original film and effects are left intact.

    I think they just did Ghostbusters at a Fathom event but no IMAX. I'd re see tons of films I have on DVD if they could give them an IMAX treatment. Ghostbusters included.

    I saw Wrath of Kahn on the big screen a couple weeks back. Not IMAX, but still big screen. The model work is so intricate and you really do appreciate the vastness of space when it's not cluttered up with thousands of ship.

    Oh boy, I hope he digitally reinserts Jabba the Hut, and makes the space port busy with activity, because that's the way he meant it to be.

    I'd be happy to see it on a 35mm screen. The last time I was able to see it on the big screen was back in '01 in a high school auditorium. It was for some charity and all their showings were sold out. The closest IMAX is 120 miles away, but I'd make the drive.

    Tickets are on sale now.

    The only theaters anywhere near me are the fake IMAX Digital (or imax as I like to call it), but it's still better than a plain 35mm print. This will be the first time I've seen it in a theater since I was 9.

    Will the digital effects added to the TV HD Broadcasts in the last 5 years be on the Blu Ray? Or did that go away like the ET added cgi shit?

    I see a trip to King of Prussia in my near future. Wouldn't waste this on the fake IMAX.

    So how does it look? I was thinking of seeing it tonight. Is it worth it?

    I may give it a shot sometime this week.

    I was also at an AMC where they were advertising their all-day showing of the Four Indiana Jones movies, and I think the ad (before the feature) only showed one clip from Crystal Skull.

    The odd thing is, blown up on an IMAX screen (and presumably on the new Blu-ray), you notice little problems you didn't see before, like the camera occasionally losing focus in some of the two-shots. The sound has been remastered as well . . . in the Peruvian cave scenes, you can hear water dripping from the ceiling.

    You guys ever see these? This guy edits the movies to be like documentaries by using behind the scenes footage and interviews with the crews/actors from multiple sources. The Raiders one is pretty cool.

    I would've loved to see that! I never got to see it on the big screen. The only Indy movies I saw in the theater were Last Crusade and Crystal Skull.

    I saw a restoration of Raiders a couple months back. Never saw the other two. I did see Crystal Skull on the big screen.
