    It kind of makes me sick to think there may be a SW with Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher recast as Han and Leia, in their current state of existence. It would be horribly depressing. Harrison has already made one too many action movies as an old man (IJ4)

    Maybe a small role as the parents of a main character would be good.

    Man... Return of the Jedi was just a perfect ending to the story.. I'm sure they'll find a way to make it interesting.

    Nah, i was talking about the original trilogy lol. I never liked the prequels, even as a kid, I've always found them rather boring.

    And me not being a fan of the original anymore was nothing to do with the 70's CGI. The CGI was well beyond its time. I don't know why, I guess I just don't appreciate it anymore like I appreciate other childhood favorites like Indiana Jones or Toy Story or Power Rangers or Marvel/DC.

    I agree about the over-usage of CGI in the prequels though, CGI Yoda is just not the same...

    Speaking of Harrison Ford, dude's been drinking from the Fountain of Youth, he looks great, pause.

    You thought power rangers aged well?!?!? I LOVED PRs, but it was horrible and unwatchable and cheesy, looking back. I've tried to give it a shot, but can't stomach it.. And I love pretty much everything I watched as a kid (hence the Tick avatar)

    Power Rangers may very well be the only thing I can look back on and regret liking as a kid. And I was obsessed, like every other kid at the time. Eh, not that I regret liking it, just regret how terrible of a show it was. Slicing in 20 year old footage as the main villain..

    Look, im'ma be honest.

    The Star Wars universe/lore.. pretty interesting.

    EVERY Star Wars movie... not so much.

    I just realized I'm not a fan of Star Wars. But really, I would love to see a Bounty Hunter movie. The originals were SO far before my time I can't get into them and the new episodes were absolute garbage minus the Sith fight scene.

    I'd watch that...

    Man I used to have that toy flute that the green ranger played to call his Dragon Zord. Green ranger was the coolest by far. Then the white ranger and his WHITE LION ZORD. I even went to see the movie.

    Ahhh I remember when they first introduced Lord Zed in a sneak preview. He looked like the most evil mfer ever, BUT I JUST KNEW he was going to be a good guy because the power rangers needed help!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wish I could go back in time and prevent myself from eating paint chips. Those shows/movies are absolutely horrific as an adult.

    I got the white ranger action figure, with the white tigerzord for christmas from my grandma one year.. My cousin did not get it.. he was pissed. Still to this day, the most memorable gift I've ever received.

    Nah lol, I was talking about the original that had the movie with Ivan Ooz or whatever. No regrets at all looking back.

    Oh, and also the original 150 something Pokemon was the sh*t too.

    Tick was great, but Pinky and the Brain was the best non-superhero show ever on WB.

    Yeah, I still love the few SW books I've read. Don't like the movies anymore, but I'm a fan of the graphic art, so I'll still buy the graphic novels.

    Now if this was Disney in the 90's... I'd be worried.

    Holy crap. I could marry you right now.

    I was a Green Ranger fanboy. I got so excited when he came back as the White one.

    I *still* have my White Tiger Zord and the original power rangers.
