I like most of what Ady did, but my friends and I were horrified at the music added to the saber fight in ANH. It doesn't belong there and is a far worse change than anything Lucas ever did. I'll take a 100 Greedos firing first over THAT.
Hamfistedly laying music behind it doesn't appreciably change it or make it better, so why not just leave it be?
Most of what Ady has done to his cut DOES help it, but I think in a few spots he suffers from "kid with a new toy" syndrome and is finding every last change he can make just for the sake of it.
Wow. That's spiteful. Not enough just to say "I didn't agree with that particular change" huh?
If you'd prefer Greedo missing a shot at point blank range to adding a bit of music to harken back to Obi-Wan/Vader's previous encounter, then just watch the 2004 trilogy DVD's instead.
I'm sure Adywan is very sorry for making you suffer through his travesty like that.
Adding slapstick droids, giant creatures moving in front of the camera and blocking out what's going on, and adding the Jabba scene where he basically repeats everything Greedo already said are examples of "kid with a new toy syndrome."
I didn't notice anything Adywan did that said "hey, look what I can do."
Anyone can add music to footage, so that can't be what the "kid with a new toy" was referring to. So what exactly was that comment targeted at?
