Product Description

The story of The Empire Strikes Back is retold. Darth Vader (Stewie) is hunting the rebel Luke Skywalker (Chris) and his troops relentlessly across the galaxy. On the ice planet Hoth, Luke has a vision of his late mentor Obi-Wan Kenobi (Herbert), telling him to go to the Dagobah system to learn the ways of the Force under Jedi Master Yoda (Carl). Meanwhile Princess Leia (Lois) finds herself taking a shine to the scruffy pilot Han Solo (Peter) and, against all odds, the two soon fall in love. But an encounter with Han’s old friend Lando Calrissian (Mort) lands them in the clutches of the Empire. Envisioning this, Luke chooses to forgo his Jedi training to save his friends. It all comes to a head in a climactic confrontation with Darth Vader himself… The Family Guy: Something, Something, Something, Darkside DVD is presented in full screen aspect ratio featuring English 5.1 Dolby Surround, Line 21, English for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, English, Spanish, French, and Brazilian stereo and subtitles.

Chris Griffin is right: when it comes to obsessive geekery and mining absurdity from the minutiae of the Star Wars universe, the comic force is stronger with Robot Chicken. But Family Guy strikes back with the second episode in its goof on the original holy trilogy. The animation is more impressive than the jokes, which are scattered all over the galaxy--the good (an Empire recruitment film), the bad (Yoda's teachings revolve around guy-movie trivia), and the ugly (wholly gratuitous--and here unbleeped--F-bombs). Devoted viewers will catch in-jokes inside of other in-jokes (this program takes its title from the season 5 episode "Barely Legal," in which the Emperor discovers the formula for great Star Wars dialogue). There is some interesting stunt casting with nebbish Mort Goldman as Lando Calrissian and the Giant Chicken as Boba Fett. James Caan cameos, as does, sorta, Tom Selleck. And Meg is once again reduced to embodying a hideous space creature, although at least she gets a line of dialogue. The DVD and Blu-ray editions contain metachlorine-rich extra features, including lively (and at times slanderous) audio commentary by Seth MacFarlane, Seth Green, writer Kirker Butler, director Dominic Polcino, and others; optional trivia pop-ups; and a table read of the Something, Something script. There is also a sneak-preview table read of the next installment, We Have a Bad Feeling About This. If I were an Ewok, I'd be worried, or on the phone to a lawyer. --Donald Liebenson

    Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
    I had already owned the first two movies on DVD. But when i saw this set for only 22.99 here on Amazon on Blu Ray, I thought that the deal was too good too pass up. Based on the Amazon description, I wasn't expecting much. Just the BDs and the Bonus features listed which were for the new film. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised when i got this today! Every film includes a digital copy, something not listed by Amazon in the description. In addition, it looks like all the bonus features from the past releases are still there, something that was also not listed by Amazon when I purchased. All this, 3 great BD titles plus digital copies plus tons of bonus stuff..... all for under 8 dollars per title. Can't beat that. Here is a full rundown of the bonus features listed for each title:

    Blue Harvest:

    *Audio Commentary from Seth Macfarlane and director, producers, writers, and editors
    *A Conversation with George Lucas
    *The Making Of Blue Harvest
    *Animatic Version of Blue Harvest
    *Family Guy Star Wars Clip Show( my favorite bonus feature from the past releases)
    *Uncensored audio track

    Something Something Something Darkside:

    *Audio Commentary
    *Fact Up Version of the feature( kinda like those old VH1 pop-up videos, with fun facts popping up throughout the movie)
    *Poster Art Featurette
    *Sneak Peak at the next feature with Table read

    It's a Trap!

    *Audio Commentary
    *A very Special message from Dart Stewie
    *Star Wars Trivial Pursuit: The ultimate Challenge
    *Drawing with Peter Shin
    *Sock Puppet Outtakes
    *Making The Scene featurette

    That oughta keep you busy for a while, eh? And then there is the feature itself.

    First, the bad news... if you are buying this whole TRILOGY package instead of just the newest parody titled "It's a Trap" so you can include the first Star Wars parody in Blu-Ray format, SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!

    I really wanted to see SOME KIND OF picture quality improvement like the 2 newer parodies on Blu-Ray. After viewing disc 1, I just have to assume it was a primitive "upconvert" to the Blu-Ray format. There was NO improvement in the sharpness of the drawn lines, colors are standard-def bland, and stair-stepping is evident in the resolution. Of course, disc 1 is still full screen as expected, so "Family Guy: Blue Harvest" gains absolutely nothing on Blu-Ray over the previous DVD version.

    Now, the other two discs are very good on Blu-Ray with sharp lines and colors that really pop! Nice transfer, and the Blu-Ray difference in quality is striking even for animated content without complex textures.

    All 3 discs are entertaining parodies of the original Star Wars trilogy, but like the TV show I'm sure they will offend some people some of the time. You probably knew that already ; )

    In summary, if you already own the first two, go ahead and buy "It's a Trap" on Blu-Ray or DVD to complete your library. New good laughs, even if not as fresh as the first two. If you don't have the both the first and second films, it might be cheaper to go ahead and buy this TRILOGY package instead!

    Format: DVD
    The classic animated series "Family Guy", follows up the success of its return to the Prime Time lineup, with a DVD movie, "Stewie Griffin, the Untold Story". The film is a three part story wrapped around and intro and wrap up that parodies a Hollywood premiere and party.

    The jokes fly fast and bawdy and pull no punches. Every pop culture reference no matter how obscure and some of the more controversial issues of the day are tossed in, and for the most part, work.

    The story follows the evil genius Stewie, who after a near death experience decides to change his ways as Hell does not hold much appeal for him. After the family gets Tivo, Stewie spots a person on television that is a spitting image of him. Convinced that the man is his real father, Stewie and the family dog Brian, join the hormonally driven Quagmire on a cross country trek.

    When Stewie reaches the coast he is shocked to discover the true identity of the man which will propel the remained of the story.

    While the show has a few misfires, it is mostly filled with one effective joke after another. The laughs were constant and I found myself enjoying every moment of the film. The laughs are very good, and if you are a fan of the show and do not mind some biting, and crude humor, this is a great escape.

    Fans of the show will love the usual interplay of the characters and the familiar style and pacing as the film plays out like a regular episode of the show, as it was initiated as a three part episode. The inclusion of segments that would not have likely made it past the networks Standards and Practices department only ads to the enjoyment of the show as it is nice to see a shown known for pushing the envelope taking steps that it would not otherwise be able to take.

    4 stars out of 5.

    Blue Harvest Bluray???
    With Casablanca, they can go back to the film negative and do a high def transfer. It was originally created with a resolution far greater than standard def--they could do a 4k or 6k or 8k transfer if they wanted to, and it would still hold up because film has greater resolution than the 1080... Read More

    episode VI: We Have a Bad Feeling About This?
    They might broadcast it to coincide with the 30th anniversary of "Return of the Jedi" in May 2013, but the DVD will most likely be available for purchase way before that.

    Digital copy?
    Looks like only the Blu-Ray version has digital copy. If so, Seth has gone over to the Blu-Ray dark side. Pathetic. Blue Harvest was the first DVD i bought because of digital copy. I only hope Target can repeat its digial copy for regular DVD, like they did for Terminator Salvation.

    Blu-ray vs. DVD
    Some will say yes, others will say no. Truth is, for me, it depends on how far you are sitting from the TV, as well as the actual size of the TV, resolution of the TV, and many different factors. It's really up to your own choice to decide what is right. You might however want to note that a... Read More
