comment Was Mace Windu falling into the Dark Side?
I think you raise a second point that might even make another good question. Mace says he's too dangerous to live and Anakin says it's not the Jedi way. That raises a question of if there is a point where someone is so powerful in the Force that they are too dangerous to let live and, if so, what is the Jedi way of containing, handling, or killing them?

comment When was the Star Wars Chasm Fail edited out?
It was removed. Yes, I saw a later version with it in, but I remember being there with a friend, waiting for the line, and it being cut - and both my friend and I looked at each other in shock that it was changed.

comment When was the Star Wars Chasm Fail edited out?
I still don't buy that. I've seen movies that have had bits cut out from soon after the initial release (for instance, in the 1980s Batman, the Joker's "Where does he get those wonderful toys?" was soon cut to "Get those wonderful toys.") It was a long time from when I saw the movie until I could read the book, if I ever read it.

According to this the earliest Laserdisc release of A New Hope was in the 1980s. While a few movies were out, in the US, before 1980 (notably Jaws), this is before VHS or Beta was at a price where any but the wealthy could afford one.

comment Eskimo Boy in Kayak on Long Journey
I have found, in the past, that my friends and I, in different parts of the country and the world actually got different results from Google when we used the same search terms in the same order. I don't know if that still happens, though.

comment Eskimo Boy in Kayak on Long Journey
I wish I could find more detail to connect this with the few memories I have of the movie, but this is a big help, especially for convincing me I wasn't making this up. I was sure the title was "Wilderness Journey," but that kept bringing up a movie from the 1990s. It's nice to know I did remember that correctly and the different spelling explains why I couldn't find it using "Kushtaka" as a search term. I'm curious about how you found it. Did you remember the title "Joniko and the Kush Ta Ka?" Also, since it's so low rated, I can understand why there's so little information available!

comment What else (other than Star Wars) has Lucas retconned?
Apologies, @DavRob60. I thought I had picked an answer and lost track of this. Sorry it took a few years...

comment B&W sci-fi: crashed meteor that hypnotizes people that encounter it
That rules out the one I was thinking of. It sounds almost like it could be It Came From Outer Space, since they're in trances, but in the long run, they turned out to be just trying to fix their ship and leave Earth.

Do you remember if the aliens were peaceful or hostile?

comment Identify this sci-fi movie in which a scientist and his family move into a new house
Do you remember anything about the movie other than what was in it? What country was it from? Was it a feature film, or just made for TV? Could it have been just a TV episode?

comment Woman in white wakes up in an empty space ship
Any meta-information can be a HUGE help. As pointed out already, country of origina, for example. Also, was it only this one woman for the whole series? Was it on network or syndicated? All this kind of information helps.

comment 1990s sci-fi tv show with invading humanoids and dull crosshatched eyes
Can you include information like what country this was in, whether it was syndicated or on a major network, or anything else along that line?

comment Strange and haunting Science Fiction Film
What makes you so sure it's not Silent Running? While the ending is different, that scene you describe might be from earlier in the movie. Also, are you sure it was a movie and not on a TV show?

@GorchestopherH: I think that'd count. I'm trying to find out if he does this whenever he can, or if it's only SW.

comment What else (other than Star Wars) has Lucas retconned?
@DVK: No. It's "Han shot." Not first, since Greedo never shot at all, so Han didn't shoot first. He shot and that was the end of it.

comment Female protagonist in a futuristic army vs. rebels film
Cross posting is discouraged. You've posted this exact same question here and on SciFi and Fantasy. It really should be posted to only one site, not both.

comment Movie where Peter Lorre asks, “Can I kill him? Can I kill him now, boss?”
As a competitive ballroom dancer, I get a lot of big band music when I'm on the dance floor. Just love it. I'll have to check that out! Thanks!

comment Movie where Peter Lorre asks, “Can I kill him? Can I kill him now, boss?”
I haven't seen much of Jerry Lewis, but as a competitive ballroom dancer, I was interested in his fight scene (that was also comic) since it was almost like a dance, but there is no real plot and the whole spy thing didn't even start until about 10 minutes or so before the line in question. I guess a Jerry Lewis fan might want to see it, but otherwise, it's plotless, nothing memorable in the writing and pointless. I agree there's a chance the use of the line in Sad Sack may be a parody -- which makes me wonder where it was originally used. But searching produced no other references.

By the way, any chance it was used elsewhere? Maybe Sad Sack used it as a reference?

comment Movie where Peter Lorre asks, “Can I kill him? Can I kill him now, boss?”
I wish you had posted that about 50 minutes earlier -- I just got through watching Sad Sack. (It's quite lacking in many ways!) I had thought it was on normal Netflix, but saw it was on streaming. I had intended to watch or listen while packing up for an event tomorrow, but was tired and sat through it all. (It wasn't worth it!) On Netflix, that line is about 1:20 (as in 1 hour, 20 minutes) in, and it's repeated within 2 minutes and repeated again at about 1:34 or so by another character. So that's it - thanks for your help! (Just wish it was early enough so I didn't watch that movie!)
