    Re: Live From Captain EO - Not Too Crazy

    Ok, so in other words we got a glorified version of the YouTube video. The starfield was one of my FAVORITE parts... it hit that really low, deep chord and the entire theater looked like you were in the middle of outer space, the screen completely disappeared. And the lasers, they used to shoot them off in sync with "Another Part of Me" at the end, another major favorite part of mine.

    It's nice having the Captain occupying that theater again, but I guess I got my hopes up too high for something that Disney has only done halfway.

    Well, Disney said if they were going to do it they'd do it right and not half-a**ed.

    If this isn't half-a**ed, I'd like to know what they think is.

    Re: Live From Captain EO - Not Too Crazy

    Okay guys here is the short version

    Just got out of EO and here are the changes

    • The preshow uses the same futuristic music from the 86 opening, a new kodak commercial and they screen the original trailer preshow.
    • The glasses are Yellow, not the purple.
    • Entering the theater there is no starfield that greets the visitors, just the logo on the screen.
    • During the battle sequence the in theater laser effects are gon, but as EO approaches the canyon the Gimble that was built for HISTA gets involved and mimic the motion on screen.
    • When EO is surrounded by the guards the seats move again
    • Wind effects left over from HISTA are employed when fuzzball flies over the audience.


    Overall the movie seems to hold up in a retro-chic kind of way. Although the effects hold up surprisingly well, the quality of the "New 70mm print" is lacking with specks, rough cuts and washed out blacks. It's still a fuin ride.. Pics coming soon

    Re: Live From Captain EO - Not Too Crazy

    Fishy is preparing a post for you now complete with photos.

    Of note:
    The Starfield, lasers, and fog/smoke were missing (as expected and reported here earlier)
    The motion floor was used
    The print quality didn't seem very good and the film was a bit blurry. Disney had reported that it would be a glorious new print, but it just didn't seem that way.

    The crowd was energized and enthusiastic. A huge cheer went up at the end of the film.

    Sorry but couldn't bear to let this inside joke go untold...



    Baxter to Reporter: For the last time, it was entirely MY decision to put the Miley Cyrus poster in the exit hall of Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln, and I stand by that decision!! Now if you'll excuse me I have to get to the theatre to watch Captain EO!!

    I wonder if some of the effects we remember as being so cool came off as somewhat dated and cheesy for 2010. I'm with you though... I hope it isn't because they decided to just cut a few corners.

    Wow...even the print is bad. What of the screen? Does the cropped edge affect the picture as well?

    Seriously? A fresh print (not a transfer off of an aged VHS), using the motion base, in theater lighting effects (albeit, no lasers), a great sound-system and it's in 3-D.

    Yep, sounds like YouTube to me.

    Given that they used NO promotion and gave 5 days public notice, i'd say it's a fair amount of people. Disney went the low key approach and thats what they got..low key.

    Whatever, i'm just glad it's back period.
