Minute 28: C-3PO and Luke go looking for R2-D2.

- In the movie, Banthas are played by 'dressed' elephants.
- Treadwell and what he's designed for.
- The last time we see Uncle Owen alive (complete with his bathrobe and a curse).
- Aunt Beru using the juicer.
- The Landspeeder being a cool toy.
- Cut scene of Luke and C-3PO travelling in the Landspeeder with rear projection (looks terrible).
- Is C-3PO driving the Landspeeder? Why would Luke want to be a passenger in his own vehicle? Perhaps droids fly everything for Luke and he never gets his driver's / pilot's license.

- Josh: In relation to cutting the Landspeeder rear projection scene "Its odd that at one time they <the Star Wars movie makers> had the ability to distinguish between something that looked good and bad."
- Josh: In relation to Tusken Raiders "...if you unwrap them would they just be humans...?"
- Josh: On Jawas growing and turning into Sand People and their voices changing as a result "They go from EH (high pitched noise) to RA (low pitched noise)!" <Josh links these noises to an actual scene in the movie.>
