    5.0 out of 5 stars Another Vote for "ORIGINAL THEATRICAL RELEASES", June 1, 2010

    By Bartholomew Boge

    This review is from: Star Wars: The Original Trilogy (Episodes IV - VI) [Blu-ray]

  • It's real simple, George. The vast majority of people who will buy the Blu-Ray versions are middle-aged nostalgia hounds. These people will NOT pony up more of their hard-earned dough for CGI "enhancements." They WILL, however, whip out their credit cards for the ORIGINAL THEATRICAL RELEASES faster than Han Solo's draw-down on Greedo.

    Find your best exant print each film of the original trilogy. Have the ILM lab boys scan in every frame @ 4k. Do the LEAST amount of color correction and dust/scratch removal--only in a restoration sense, not "improving color" or anything like that. Approach it like archivists.

    Use your technical advancements to do the finest BR encoding of those individual frames. I want to see film grain, dude. Matte lines. Pancake makeup. Absolutely naked and unvarnished. The final result should be a monument to the format, really.

    Do the same with the audio.

    If your ego won't let you "let go" of your CGI meddling, then make every feature a two-BR set--your best "improved" version + the original theatrical release. You can charge more that way, have your final vision, and still satisfy the fans who want the '77, '80. and '83 prints. And line your pockets with more filthy lucre as you sell the same product to us for the umteenth time. Call it a "Special Edition Archivist Series" or something like that.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Star Wars Legacy, September 10, 2004

    By Mary Parisi (Woodbury, NJ USA

    This review is from: Star Wars Trilogy (A New Hope / The Empire Strikes Back / Return of the Jedi) (Widescreen Edition with Bonus Disc) (DVD)

    I am a huge fan of Star Wars. YEs, I am an 'Original Fan". And why is being an 'Original' fan percieved so negatively? If you are an original Beatles fan, the newer fans ask you with reverence what it was like seeing them in concert, etc. etc. (No, I am not fortunate enough to be an 'original' Beatles fan. I wasn't even born in 1964.) Original Star Wars fans are called oldtimers and accused of not letting go of the past and not appreciating that times change.

    Mr. Rehnquist wrote in his review "I ask, who would want to see old, outdated movies in this age of advanced technology? " Well, I hope the answer is "Many People". My love of movies is not based on the level of special effects. Should we no longer watch the great old black and white films of the past because they are 'old and outdated'? No more Bogie and Bacall? No more Hepburn and Tracy? What about Gene Kelly? Jimmy Stewart?

    The thing Mr. Lucas is forgetting is that more is not always better- in an interview when the movies first came out, he was quoted as saying that the problem with the Sci-Fi genre in general was that so many moviemakers forgot about the story. The movies ended up being built around the special effects.

  • Unfortunately, Mr. Lucas is adding all of these scenes and filming the newer movies (Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones) with nothing but the possibilities of these special effects in mind. He has lost the story; it had become secondary to the special effects.

    I had no problem with the celebratory scenes added at the end of "Return of the Jedi" but I do have a problem with some of the other scenes. Han shot Greedo. Greedo did not shoot first. It is ridiculous to change this. Han's change of heart and redemption are more powerful when you know he was a mercenary! He was always looking out for himself. That's how he survived! He was in it for the money, and found himself inexplicably drawn to the people of the Rebellion. That's good story-telling.

    The problem is that Mr. Lucas has taken the liberty of CHANGING much of the story with these scenes.

    Mos Eisley was supposed to be a dusty, deserted town. Tatooine is on the outer rim of the galazy. It's an unimportant, dusty, underpopulated planet. What I saw in the "Special Editions" was a thriving, well-populated town.

    I would happily buy the special edition versions if I knew Lucas intended on eventually releasing the original versions on DVD as well. I'd buy both.

    We're not trying to erase the movies you love. If you like the "Special Editions" Great! I am glad. I would never tell any of you to shut up or that your opinions were stupid and your views outdated as we have been told by Mr. Rehnquist.

    We original fans aren't telling you new fans that the version we grew up with should be the only one out there. Please have the courtesy of relizing we are only asking for the opportunity to buy these movies the way we fell in love with them.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A Helpful Guide to the Changes, August 14, 2004

    This review is from: Star Wars Trilogy (A New Hope / The Empire Strikes Back / Return of the Jedi) (Widescreen Edition with Bonus Disc) (DVD)

    The rumors are true about this DVD set being a "Special Special Edition". More changes have been made to the original Star Wars trilogy since 1997. Recently, many images, sounds, and even a full-length copy of Return of the Jedi have been floating around on the internet, all of which confirm the changes.

    Like it or not, here are some of the major alterations:

    A New Hope

    1. Greedo still shoots first, but it is slightly improved.

    2. Jabba the Hutt is still in the film, but has been completely redone.

  • 3. The lightsabers have been enhanced; they are no longer white rods in certain scenes.

    The Empire Strikes Back

    1. Actor Ian McDiarmid now appears as The Emperor via hologram, with new dialogue and different music.

    2. Actor Temuera Morrison now provides the voice of Boba Fett.

    Return of the Jedi

    1. Naboo has been added to the end celebration montage.

    2. Actor Hayden Christensen appears as the ghost of Anakin Skywalker at the end of the film.

    $39.99 for a trilogy set before release? I'll take it.

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Watched this classic trilogy set on DVD and had to upgrade to Blu to get better PQ and AQ. The packaging was well done and contains all three discs in a stand-alone bluray case containing Episodes IV-VI respectively. One dislike about the product is how there are no special features except for commentary and Never-Before-Released commentary with cast and crew. In order to get ALL the special features, you have to buy the Star Wars Complete Saga boxed set which contains Episodes I-VI. Since I'm not a fan of I-III, I passed on it. Besides this, I'm glad to own the original films from 1977-1983. I'd recommend this is you're not too fussy about special features.
