Welcome to All The [NERD] Rage, a lightning-round style review of the top nerd stories of the week. These are stories the Muggles may or might not be aware of. It’s time to catch up, so we’d better just get right into it.
- George Lucas Causes The Facepalm Heard Round The World
The Star Wars Blue-Ray Collection will be released on September 16. But there will be a few changes in store yet again. What? You didn’t think George Lucas could resist tinkering with his beloved movies one last time, did you? Well, he did. And in a bad way. Perhaps the most derided scene from the new trilogy is being revisited for the finale of The Return Of The Jedi. That whole ridiculously cliched shot of Darth Vader looking up with clenched fists shouting, “Nooooooooooooooooo!” Yes, that one. Lucas will insert new dialogue in ROTJ, so Vader can exclaim his infamous line again when Emperor Palpatine tasers Luke Skywalker within an inch of his life. Then it’s the audience that will be shouting, “Noooooooooooo!” (Note: There are a few more changes in store, but I’m already sad enough right now.)
