    He just cant let them go. It's like building the perfecting building, and continuing to add to it.

    No need!

    Why would he keep messing about with it, like that?

    I don't understand his motivation, unless it really IS all about the money. I know I won't be buying them, as the extra adds nothing to the film. I was MOST shocked to see that in the DVD release of Return of the Jedi, when they're having the party with the ewoks, at the end, the original Darth Vader had been excised.

    Mind you, about 10 years ago, I had a friend who met an american girl in a bar in London. Turned out that she was the daughter of George's ex-wife. She used to get some ridiculous amount credited to her account each month. They ended up moving into a nice flat in Chelsea, which he kitted out with massive screen, and all the goodies. Even went to dinner and sat next to the formerly "great man".

    I did suggest that next time they met, he asked "George.....Jar jar Binks....WHY?" Sadly, the relationship died after about a year.

    Yeh I hated that too, why when dvd's can do alternate scenes not include the original versions?!?!?!

    I think Simon Pegg said it best:
    (paraphrase)

    I'm really annoyed, but it's like being sad that a deceased relative is slightly more decayed.

    Cracking analogy.

    That isn't the only change Lucas has made in the new Blu-ray versions...

    CGI Yoda (The Phantom Menace)


    Kenobi's New Scream (A New Hope)


    Blinking Wicket


    You have to admit CGI Yoda does look a lot better than puppet Yoda.

    Have you ever come across "Red Letter Media" Simon Pegg is a big fan, as these guys explain episode 1 to 3 was so bad. each review is almost as long as each movie!

    Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace |

    Enjoy!

    I am addicted to these guys... the new reviews with half in the bag are ace.

    I can't see many fanboys forking out all that for the blu-rays.. tempting though it is to see Leah in HD

    Will still get it, so many rages occured when Lucas did all the changes for DVD but still sold a shed load of em. Fact is in the end if you want Fancy High Quality star wars you will buy it at worst wait till it drops in price

    I am seeing how much dosh I have left over.

    hehe! can't beat the original trilogy tapes yeah!!!

    Quality is poor but I know what went into the original films and all this tweaking and adding is taking away the feel of the original movies in my eyes

    "Old an feeble I may be but look as good you at my age" I liken myself to Yoda, just a little taller and my ears are not pointed.

    There is an important thing to remember about Star Wars films.

    They are for CHILDREN!

    When we saw them as children, we loved them.
    I'm sure if you show children the modern versions, they will love them.

    Is anyone that saw them for the first time 30ish years ago, really that bothered about them anymore? Are you really?

    The Laser Disc versions are the ones to get. Exactly the same films as on the VHS tapes, but better quality. Google "Definitive Original Edition" for more info.





    I can't see what the fuss is about personally. Star Wars fans will already own the previous revisions of the films.

    I am still a child at heart.......

    When we saw them as children, we loved them.
    I'm sure if you show children the modern versions, they will love them.
    My kids love the older versions better than the new edited stuff......

    I sure am!, more than ever and if you new how the special effects where created in those day's then you would realise how passionate I am about the older versions
