What do you guys think?

Should Episode 1 3D and the regular Episode 1 on Blu Ray/DVD be counted as the same movie, or as two different movies?

The same.
I vote that the SW movies have only 6 films, no matter which version a person sees.

I'll withhold my vote for this moment, since I want to expand this into a broader question.

Should we include other films - non Star Wars films - that were released in their original form and then re-released in a digital form, that were touched up in one way or another? I'm thinking about old black and white films given colour, mainly, but other things.

When in doubt consult this thread.

That is a good question, and in the case for Star Wars could be open to debate.

Episode I in 3D vs. Episode I on Blu-Ray: too similar, I'd say.
Episode IV on VHS (the black and blue box) vs. Episode IV on blu-ray: Gray area. There were a lot of changes.

I have an unrelated question: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. Not a TV show. Only 45 mins long. Only available on the internet and then on DVD/blu-ray. It seems to be in the exact midline between a movie and not.

Should it count?

Another gray area. Other things, like The Guild, probably shouldn't count. Those are individual episodes that form a season. But Dr. Horrible was more like a movie in three acts.

Thoughts?

I'd say go ahead and count Dr. Horrible. It's right at the line, but maybe it's just cuz I have a soft spot for it lol.

RE Life's question about movies that have been touched up since original release: I'd say they still count as the same movie. This whole issue of the Star Wars flicks (Special Edition vs Original vs 3D) can even carry over to stuff like Blade Runner, where there exist four different versions of the same movie. Maybe to avoid this tricky quagmire, we should just consider them all as one movie - rather than each different version?

Interesting thoughts, and I agree that they should be counted as the same movie (unless it's a remake, with completely different cast etc).

Would Schindler's List qualify for "Body Count over 100?" The body count for that film is pretty high, but I don't want to exxagerate if I can help it.

I should have used 'Body Count Over 100' for ANH. The body count is actually pretty sobering when you think about it.

You know, I kept trying to think of an example of "Horror movie with zero body count." Then one thing came to mind:

THE VOW.

My wife wants me to take her to see it. I told her that memory loss and loss of identity are among the things I fear the most, and therefore The Vow isn't a cute rom-com starring Rachel McAdams, but a horror film (and I don't watch those).

It's like someone in Hollywood said "Hey! Let's think of the most intrinsically terrifying things in the world, and make them into comedies!"

And then someone else said "Good idea! I'll take Cancer!" and made 50/50.

And then someone else said "I'll do loss of self!" and made The Vow.

My mind shudders to think of where they'll go next.
