Looks like Bill Hunt is being attacked. Originaltrilogy.com is also mentioned toward the beginning. I'm still trying to figure this out:

How you can be an advocate for quality cinema while at the same time telling an artist that he MUST release earlier versions of his films he no longer supports is a contradiction.


I've been lurking for several weeks watching this thread.... I am one of those who agrees with most of what this community has been in arms about (aside from an extreme 10% or so of the more hyperbolic forum members), yet unfortunately I WILL still buy the blu-rays, as I am firmly addicted to Lucasfilm Kool-Aid. (Don't waste your breath hitting me with "you're part of the problem" nonsense.)

I have had nothing new to add to this thread, as I feel that most of my thoughts have been well articulated by others. However, the link above moved me to action, not because I think that the owner of that blog is a nutcase, but because he is an intelligent, thoughtful individual whose view is in direct opposition to most in this forum.

I have yet to have come across such a view articulated so well, so I responded on his blog. Our conversation has been illuminating, and I must admit, the guy has a point. I don't have to agree with it, but I do respect it.


To Adywan--

Greetings brother.... I fervently hope that Lucasfilm never decides to shut you down, as your "Revisited" versions are the perfect substitute, and by and large, an example of what we all feel Lucasfilm SHOULD have done.
