I believe it is, I know when watching Amazon Prime streaming content they have the x-ray feature in a simpler way that displays IMDb type info on actors and their other films. Very good question as to who's creating this content though.

You realize the Blu-ray won't deliver 'til the 5th, right? Retailers have to make sure it shows up in your mailbox on the same day it releases in stores, and not before. Only the downloadable digital version was released today.
I'm kinda confused why you quoted me....I bought something online that wasn't even Star Wars related...all I was saying is usps is not reliable, that's why I will just buy the dvd on Tuesday at the store.

In early versions of the script, Leia was supposed to die instead of Han
why did they change it? Do we know? Did Ford only commit to one movie and force the change?

The Star Wars title has been overall the best imo. Darth Vader title is a close second.

Yep. I wasn't born until '83, but my brothers taught me that it was an "at-at".

This...
AT-AT = At at, or dog walker
AT-ST = Chicken walker

Uhm, nope. "Armored" transport

Fun fact the movies never used any of these terms: only referred to as "Imperial Walkers" on film

Not according to LucasFilm

From Time Magazine:
quote:
Yes, I know I'm a bit late for Techland's Star Wars month, but hey, every month is Star Wars month for true Star Wars aficionados.

The question at hand, the proper pronunciation of the AT-AT walker, arose after watching Techlander Allie Townsend's Star Wars Yoga video. Her Star Wars Yoga master pronounced AT-AT phonetically as "at at," as in it rhymes with "hat hat," however, I have always held the belief that the vehicle was pronounced by saying its letters, or Ay Tee-Ay Tee. This seemingly improper pronunciation was irksome and one mini-nerdrage later, I decided to use my journalistic mettle to settle the matter.

There is much evidence within the Star Wars universe itself to support my pronunciation given that other walkers like Return of the Jedi's AT-ST and the prequels' AT-TE are pronounced by their letters. Even everyone's most beloved droid, R2D2, is pronounced by the letters that comprise its name, whereas there is little, if no, precedent for the pronunciation of AT-AT phonetically.

So who's correct, the Star Wars Yoga master (unlikely), or me (most definitely)?

An email blast to Lucasfilm's public relations department provided the definitive verdict. The official pronunciation for AT-AT is the phonetic one, as in it rhymes with "hat hat."

Alas, the force was not with me.

The 80s generation wins...
http://techland.time.com/2010/09/02/how-do-you-pronounce-at-at/

This makes me feel good too. Because I lost an argument about .GIFs about 4 years ago and I still slip up and only call it a "G-if" about 50% of the time... (Correct pronunciation is "jiff")

My buddy just rented the TFA blu-ray at our local Family Video. He didn't even look to see if they were selling it.
