This change sucks and its pointless. Why?

Oh my dear lord...Jimbo hates the change...

But anyway, might be it was changed because it was similar to the sound of the Dewbacks. Not sure tho...

It doesn't sound organic anymore. It almost sounds like a police siren. Dumb.

Well at least the reversed surround channels have been addressed.

lmao at that pic Neil.

This is one of the first things I picked out while watching the films (rented). This seems like a really needless change for the worse.

Changes I dislike

1. Greedo shooting first. I know everyone always mentions this one but it is a needless change that kind of lessesns the scene.

2. Changing Obi-Wans call. Really needless and makes no sense

3. Changing Bobas voice. Its better for continuality but I loved Bobas old voice and its possible for a clone to have a slightly different voice

4. Hayden as Anakins Ghost. Makes sense in some ways but its a bit disrespectful to the memory of Shaw and it doesn't make sense that Luke recognizes him as his father considering his radically different appearance.

5. Han stepping on Jabbas tail. I like everything else about the scene but why would Han in an attempt to bargin for his life step on Jabbas tail. It should have been modified so Han steps over Jabbas tail.

Wow, I agree with you on all of those Jimbo.

The only thing im not sure about is the Jabba scene in ANH. I think the movie flows better without it. Also, as a lot of people have mentioned, it was really cool to not see him until Jedi. It made him more ominous in my opinion.

Jabba could've shifted over beforehand so he could walk around...somehow. I don't know, I just think the whole scene should've stayed on the cutting room floor. The Anakin ghost change sucks major ass. It not only looks stupid (he looks like a complete jackass), it is just retarded. But regarding Luke recognizing him...he is a Jedi and they do have those force abilities. I'm sure he could sense his father's presence. On the same topic, removing Anakin's eyebrows was stupid. I mean come one. Even if Anakin gets his face burned in ROTS, technology keeps him alive, why couldn't it regrow his eyebrows??

Removing his eye brows is a very good change. It makes his face more messed up and therefore improves Vaders suffering. If his hair didn't grow back neither would his eye brows. I think the Jabba scene helps bridge the gap between the movies better. I like the scene but Han stepping on Jabbas tail didn't make sense.

Luca$ seriously needs to see a psychiatrist. If he wasn't a multi-millionaire his ass would be in an asylum right now!

Now thats fucking crazy. Come one what about the new Mos Isley, expanded cloud city, new wampa, new sarlacc, matt line deletion, improved Yavin shots, improved lightsabers, new Biggs scene, and the deletion of that horrendous ewok song. Plenty of really awsome changes that make the movie better. For every bad change there are 50 good ones.

That pic is a riot. LOL!

Mos Eisley: Bad, had more of a ghost-town feel to it before that was more ominous.

Cloud City: Good, always liked this, but they needed some window-consistency there...

Wampa: Bad. More tense and ominous not seeing him much.

Sarlacc: Bad. WTF is with that beak?

Matte Lines: Good until they missed 93 of them.

Yavin: Split on these...some good and some bad

Lightsabers: See MATTE LINES.

Biggs: VERY good, the biggest change in the SE that I think improves the film...hell, the ONLY change that improved the film.

Ewok Song: Always liked it, but I do like the SE song better, it works more as an ending to the saga.

DEATH STAR ATTACK (since you forgot this): I actually like the SE version a lot more, it's more tense and exciting. I actually almost got annoyed watching the OT version of this with all the slowness and roughness of it and then I realized what I was thinking and slapped myself.

The new Wampa is my favorite change. The scene made no sense before. Its much better seeing it. The beak on the sarlacc is the only way to watch that scene. I always thought the sarlacc was stupid. There is nothing threatening about a hole in the ground. With the beak it really makes the sarlac a monster out to get them. A great change. The orginal ewok song sucked ass. In my opinion its worse then Jedi rocks. The new one isn't great either but its better then that dog turd.

Excuse me the Ewok Song Change is a GOOD ONE!!!!




But in all seriousness i hate the new song as well as all the new shots of various planets. I grew up with that song and because of that the og ewok song has been embedded into my psychy. Put it back Luca$ put it back... Besides wouldnt it take months for the remnants of the empire to crumble. Sure the top two are done, and so is part of there navy, but it isnt like the rest of the empire would simply melt away(there would have to be some sort of power struggle amoungst the other mofs) and people all over the galaxy would simply run out there homes and celebrate. Besides the rebels were in no position to completely whipe out the remnant...

GL you make my butt sting, i lothe you...

If you're referring to what I said, I did say the Ewok song change was a good one, just that I did like the old one a lot.

Sorry, man, beak=bird, not evil monster.

It's Eisley, Mos Eisley. The "new" Sarlacc is just a penis sticking out of the pit. It not only looks dumb, but the sounds it makes are pretty lame. The Ewok song was not horrendous. I would rather listen to Elmo sing at the end of Return Of The Jedi than hear that lame Yanni-sounding shit. The whole end is stupid (WEESA FREE!!!) now, it's completely out of place. Cloud City, the Wampa, Yavin and Mos Eisley didn't need to be enhanced or expanded. I'm sorry you apparently disliked the original versions so much that you feel these changes were absolutely needed - I didn't. Now you can keep preaching the word of Lucas and bitching that a penis looks better than just a pit with teeth and tentacles and that sort of shit...or you can just accept that I don't really like the Special Editions. I didn't need it, many of the people on this board sure as hell didn't need it. I guess that's the difference between us. Now that you've seen the SE, you'd never go back to the Originals would you?

Oh, and the new Mos Eisley ruined one of the better scenes in ANH where the Stormtroopers stop the landspeeder. Now, a Ronto blocks our view (Lucas originally never intended to have us see the troops approach I guess), that floating droid thing annoys the hell out of me by making noises during one of the better lines ("We don't need to see his I.D."), and it all ends with another Ronto...it just feels so fake.
