Lucas, stop Altering these films!!!!!!
11 September 2012
Summary: What can I say about the most popular films of all time that hasn't already been said? The Blu Ray experience for these films was awesome. What I don't like is every time these films are RE-released, George Lucas adds more or alters them. Lucas, LEAVE THEM ALONE! I waited almost a year to buy these because of one reason...adding Vader yelling "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO" when he grabbed the Emporer to toss him down the shaft. NOT NEEDED!
Summary: Overall, a great Bly Ray set. Ep. 1 and 2 prequels are still weakest link. My only concerns were the vintage Documentaries transfer was not up to Blu Ray standards. I thought they would be upgraded for this release. The spoofs were okay. However, a few of them were trimmed. Not uncut since I had seen most before. The movies's images were outstanding. However, I still differ on which version Lucas is preserving. The I-III archives were very extensive.
Summary: First off, I am a huge Star Wars fan. I love the saga, I am not one of those people that constantly complain about the changes and how I only want the original movies the way that they were. I like additional insight into the story I know and love. Sure, there's bad acting. Sure, there's flaws in continuity. They're movies, and sci-fi fantasy ones at that, so you have to take these things with a grain of salt people.
Summary: As A Fan of Star wars I was really looking forward to getting the blue ray. Most of it is already available . The new stuff is ok. It would of been nice to see a updated interviews with the cast.
Excerpt: I have never been blown away like i was with this release when comes to dts i must say the have done a fantastic job. But a warning if u live in a apartment with a sub woofer, This is loud! I mean loud!!!.
Conclusion: I loved the original trilogy but never cared for the newer prequels but decided I would buy all the movies as one package, so I would have them all on blu ray. The reasons why I was never impressed with the newer prequels was because I grew up with the original trilogy and looking at the prequels you could certainly tell these films were made long after the original trilogy like R2 flying and special effects etc.
Conclusion: Ever since I saw Star Wars as it was called back in 1977 and not Episode IV: A New Hope as the fan boys would call it I was hooked. As a six year old the opening sequence the music the action and characters were almost too much to take in, but way back then nobody knew George Lucas would build a muti-billion dollar franchise and then milk it for all it was worth. We waited so long for Lucas to put pen to paper was it worth the wait? erm.........
Summary: I have been an avid Star Wars fan from when I was a kid and when I found
out it was coming out on Blu-ray I had to get it. Of course George Lucas in his infinite wisdom has altered some more scenes in
the 6 movie set. Some like Ep 1 where they replaced the horrible puppet with a
fully CGI one was definitely a good edit. Most of the other changes go unnoticed
like the Ewoks blinking.
