See, that's the thing that I think angers a lot of people. Lucas is entitled to do whatever he wants to the films he owns. Fans criticize Lucas because he continues to state the OOT does not exist. I cannot think of any other filmaker who wants to surpress a version of their own work so badly. I don't hate Lucas. Why would I? For all I know, he may very well be a nice man. I just want a high quality copy of the OOT on DVD with crisp anamorphic widescreen and booming sound form the original mixes, like 99.99% of the DVDs which have been released. I also want this version to be made available on HD-DVD, Blu-Ray, and future home video formats so that I am given a choice about which version to watch. People criticize Lucas because he wants to surpress these versions of the films. People criticize him because he does not want to make these version availible to the viewing public, many of whom prefer them. I never said it was my movie. But I love the original version of it, and want a high quality release of the OOT. Lucas does not want to make this available when he is capable of doing so. Therefore, people criticize him. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Alien, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Aliens, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, Alien 3, Vanishing Point, Alien Resurrection, The Abyss, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, E.T. The Extraterrestrial, Apocalypse Now, Blade Runner, Brazil, Braindead, and The Leopard, are all available in multiple versions, among others. Why not three of the most popular and influential films ever made? That, I think, is why people criticize George Lucas.
