The entire cantina scene is in another PoETV clip, but this one is a) in color, and b) just the TRUTH-TELLING part.

Nerd rage is funny. That's what.
Thank God you have the courage and willpower to whine because I didn't like something.
One day, this clip is going to win the Vidlympics (awarded by stars by your votes at home!) and it will be because a few brave men stood together and said, "No MORE!"
Who's a bigger whiner: the whiner or the whiner who follows him?
Oh man, I thought the insufferable twat thing was a temporary condition. Egg on my face, it turns out.
|Repomancer - 2007-10-09 |
I bet you liked E.T. better with walkie-talkies, Sean.
I bet I maybe saw ET once when I was tiny and didn't really give a shit about it and haven't thought about it in any context as an adult, Repo.
I bet I love you, Sean.
Xiph, think of Sean's head, glazed in man-sweat.

After we saw this, my mum told me "Shooting someone from under the table is very naughty." And I can honestly say I've never done it. Thanks mum.

I want to one star this for the "who cares?" factor, but "oota goota, Solo?" is worth at least four.
|Old_Zircon - 2007-10-09 |
I've never seen the edited version, thank god.
If God could use the Internet - he can't because he is allergic to glass - he would 1 star this video.
If all Satan's demons could use the Internet -- and they can and do -- they would five star this video JUST TO PISS YOU OFF.
In addition to being emblematic of George Lucas's terrible revisionist tendencies towards his franchise, it's _also_ emblematic of obsessive nerds horribly nitpicking even the most trivial details of Lucas's franchise.
I really like the image of someone showing their kids DVDs of the movies and spending the entire time sputtering, "NO! THAT ISN'T HOW IT WAS!"
While the children yawn at the old, dull movie and think about the damn fool things that kids think about.

My inner nerd tells me to five star this
|PegLegPete - 2007-10-09 |
Edited is fucking retarded.
|Senator_Unger - 2007-10-09 |
I think the best band name I've ever heard was "Han Shot First."
|theSnake - 2007-10-09 |
Nary a subtitle to be seen, beautiful.
|coprolalia - 2007-10-10 |
They wouldn't take my word for it when I said they changed it.
Plus one star for the lack of subtitles, it really is a lot better.
|Dummy Rum - 2007-10-10 |
I dunno, I'm inclined to agree with the approval of no subtitles, but I kind of miss the line "I've been waiting for this for a long time," right before Greedo chuckles.

GO WATCH SOME TARTOVSKY AND CRY INTO YOUR ABSYNTHE LIKE SERIOUS MOVIE PEOPLE DAMMIT
|RomancingTrain - 2007-10-10 |
I don't know why the newer version makes Han a pussy.
|Uulanbaatorbaby - 2007-10-10 |
Real starwars fans need no subtitles. Or friends.
Hy Huttese is impeccable.
|Xiphias - 2007-10-10 |
my license plate is HNSHT1ST you faggots
Lucas, you bastard. You're even wearing the SHIRT!
|StanleyPain - 2007-10-10 |
To be fair, the scene was tinkered with again for the DVDs and the editing is tightened with Greedo and Han shooting at almost the exact same time. Still, a stupid decision, but it looks better in the latest version.
|EvilHomer - 2007-10-10 |
Up until today, I wasn't even aware that this "who shot first" controversy existed. Now, one poeTV clip and a much too long Wikipedia entry later, I'm not sure whether to be proud of my staggering nerd-ignorance, or deeply, deeply ashamed.
i've still never seen a star wars movie
From the Wikipedia article:
Peter Mayhew, the actor who played Chewbacca in the original series, was asked in a Reddit AMA, "Mr Mayhew. Did Han really shoot first? You were there. You saw it first hand. The truth needs to come out!" His response was "uughghhhgh uughghhhgh huuguughghg."

George Lucas killed my tomatoes.
|magical man - 2007-10-11 |
OMFG GEORGE LUCAS U SUKK!!!!

magical.. no. just no.
|Billings - 2007-10-12 |
Greedo never died
rodian jesus left an empty tomb!

How is it that I know what Greedo is saying for each of his lines?
Speaking Huttese is like an even greasier version of Klingon.
|Goethe and ernie - 2008-10-05 |
I'll five-star this on the basis that George Lucas is a huge huge cunt for assuming that kids are so stupid they'll think shooting people first is what makes a man rad.
|atheistgirl - 2008-11-27 |
Of course Han shot first.
If Greedo had have shot first surely he'd have hit Han.
I mean he's a bounty hunter, for crying out loud, and they're sat across a very small table from each other.
How could he fire first and miss?
