    Shame, looking forward to TESB on the SW blu-ray release, lets hope there is a proper dedication on there, unlike Stan Winston with alien anthology?

    Don't know much about the guy (reading the link now) other than the fact that he did direct the greatest Star Wars movie of them all so I hope his name will be remembered for a long time.

    RIP.

    I've always rather liked his 70's supernatural thriller The Eyes of Laura Mars which is the closest any US film ever has come to the Italian giallo genre of which I'm a fan and his comedy/drama Loving about a marriage on the brink.

    RIP Irvin - and thanks for making The Empire Strikes Back such a memorable part of my childhood cinema going experience. You should have directed them all.

    No one's mentioned Never Say Never Again. It could have been so very bad but I thought it so much better than any of the Moore and Brosnan Bond films.

    RIP Irvin

    I wouldn't go that far, but it's the rare remake that is superior to the original. ;)

    It was so much better than the films I mentioned but better than the original? No way!

    I always found Thunderball to be the first dud in the Bond series. It's really rather a dull film and it's the only one of the Bond films released on Blu-ray I still haven't gotten all the way through. Never Say Never Again isn't a great film, but it's a lot more lively and it doesn't make you sit through a interminable underwater battle at the end where you can't tell who is who.

    ....and The Spy Who Loved Me is my fave Bond film. :p

    I love the underwater battle scenes in both but Thunderball is by far the better of the two. It's a pity that both the UK Laserdisc and DVD of NSNAG were so poor.
