    too many movies today use effects instead of letting ones imagination supply the effect, :)

    Ya'all should see "THX 1138"! ←This is a fantastic film!
    It was George Lucas' first film as director. 1971
    THX 138 *as lisence plate #* was used in "American Graffiti", Lucas' next directed film. 1973 ← also excellent!

    Yep or let the actors carry the scene. Sidney Poiter was amazing at doing that in A Raisin in the Sun.

    Yep, and there's an entire movie standard called THX. It's amazing the people Lucas worked with so early on--Robert Duvall, Harrison Ford, and more. There's a really good documentary on movie sound that talks about the early days of sound in film and how Lucas, Scorsese, and someone else led the charge to change what we hear in theaters.

    I love old movies without all the special effects, as well :)

    I may be wrong but I believe there are three THX 1138 versions:
    Original Cut (1971) 1:25:50
    ?Second cut? 1:28:32 (?Laser Disc 1978?)
    Director's Cut

    I came across an interesting version that was independently post produced:


    “Hybrid Cut”

    Brief Synopsis: This "Hybrid Cut" combines as much HD material from the CGI "Enhanced" 2004 Blu-Ray Director's Cut, with as little SD material from the 1978 Laserdisc cut as possible, while still trying to recreate the original version very closely. Intention: Using the Laserdisc 1978 Cut as a blueprint, I've conformed the Blu-Ray to it, shot-by-shot, down to the exact frame. Where material was missing, I've restored it from the Laserdisc, or the original trailer. When the CGI additions were bad, I've replaced them, where they were reasonably subtle I've left them in (Hence the "Hybrid" title). Throughout, I've sought to remove or change shots that significantly differ from the Laserdisc, while trying to keep as much HD as I possibly could.

    The film has also been re-graded shot-by-shot to rebalance the greys and whites, re-saturate flesh tones and general colours and remove unnatural tinting. Although in a few cases the Laserdisc shots have been tinted to match the Blu-Ray (Such as with the gold robot-factory shots). The soundtrack is the original mono mix and is unchanged.

    It's a joke Elizabeth - back in the DOS era lots of software or later booting from CD would prompt you to "Press any key to continue"

    There were actually a lot of calls to tech support from users complaining that they couldn't find the ANY key on their keyboard. Where is the ANY key? Small wonder you don't see that prompt anymore. o_O
