And instead I am going to buy bootleg copies of the originals that were remastered from the laserdisc releases instead just because I trust bootleggers more than I trust Lucas.




I say this now but watch me buy the new set anyway just because I have these completist attittude obsession.

There are some things I do and don't like about the special editions, but I think utlimately, they are his movies, and to do with them what he likes. I really don't care if Greedo shoots first, Han's always been and still is my favorite character, and maybe I like him better as a gray sheep than a muderous black sheep. I dunno. That said, I'm very happy to not have the vaseline under snowspeeders and transparencies popping up everywhere. I will warn anyone purchasing these; Hayden Christensen's image has replaced the original Anakin's ghost at the end of Jedi, but apparently Lucas explains all this on the commentary.

I must be really out of the loop 'cause I have no idea what the problem is here... Care to explain?

And Martha...I also have the original VHS ones. Matter of fact I have no DVDs at all.

Unfortunately my VCR died so I have started collecting DVDs. Im not up to Star Wars yet though. So far only Princess Bride, Brasil, and some U2 ones

I already have the DVD on pre-order from Amazon. I'm feeling kind of iffy about having the Anakin ghost replaced though.

At least Indiana Jones trilogy worked nicely, that was money well spent. My only complaint is the absence of commentary tracks but the remastered films themselves, it was done right.
