GL once was great. He came up with a great idea and a great universe. But he is no longer great. The more he touches Star Wars the more he ruins it. So I have to agree with Luke. He should never be allowed to touch it again. Don't mean to insult him, but it is just a fact that he has cracked.

I fins this so interesting, well not. Even if you hate the prequals and the lines, you should pick up a book that incorporates them into the OT timeline, kind of like Tatooine Ghost. I mean at the end of the day, this is what I see. You can hate midi-chlorians and immaculately conceived Anakin, but otherwise what is there. Hate the lines, some of the action, but what about the story in general? That at least, the story, I haven't seen some solid different ideas for something else.

Exactly.
Some of the acting may be a little off, and some of the effects may be too much, but as for the story, well you can't beat that!

Sit down, relax and just think of the PT and the OT and just see how well everything starts to fit together!

For instance, I could never understand why Vader would pilot his Tie Fighter in ANH, I mean could be a little risky, but because of the PT and especially 3, we see that Anakin is one hot shot pilot...thats just one example!

I could go on and on, on why the PT works well and just expands on the OT.

I love the original films, have done most of my life, and to be honest I was a little gutted when I first saw TPM.
But after a while, and especially when I bought it on VHS, i just loved it. Couldn't get enough.
So when AOTC came to the cinema, I knew what to expect, in the way it was filmed, special effects, story etc.

So if some of you all hate the PT so much, why watch them. Go rent Police acedemy or something, coz theres alot of people here who do like them, and get sick of hearing how Luycxas 'raped their childhood' or 'Lucas is a hack who fucked up and should give it to someone else'. Man!!

did anyone here ever think that SW would win an oscar for acting performances? i sure didnt... but the story, the setting, the decor, the action, plus more... that is all great.

Highlander 10th Anniversary Edition

Something like 20 minutes spliced back in to the flow of the film. The most important piece of info that it adds to the film is how Rachel came to be with Connor back in WWII. This was how I was introduced to Highlander and I went back and watched the original video release and it pales in comparison to this version. It leaves so much unexplained.


Thanks bossk,

as motti_soL has already explained this is the version that was shown in europe in the cinemas. So no wonder we have no director's cut of Highlander here in Germany.

As far as I'm concerned, GL can make all the prequels or sequesl he wants. If I don't like them I don't watch them/ignore them (TPM fits into that category for me. On the other hand I actually like AOTC, although I still don't consider it a prequel, but more a movie in it's own right). But I agree that he shouldn't be "allowed" to touch the originals anymore. Obviously I can't enforce that or anything, I just don't like what he's doing, especially when he tries to stop us from even seeing the OT the way it was. Actually, if he wasn't doing that, I probably wouldn't have any problem with the SE or the ultimate edition or anything else either; again I would just choose what I wanted to watch (The OT's) and ignore what I didn't (the SE's). So I guess my standpoint is, he can "touch" it as much as he wats... as long as I have the option of veiwing the "untouched" version...

Just wait untill the 30th Anniversary box set thing is out, I bet, and I truly think this will happen, that when this ultimate edition comes out, we'll have both the OT and the new stuff. All in one box set simular to the Alien set.

Well, it would a least shut alot of people up, and then everybody's happy!!

I know that will eventually happen just because of this site and fan complaints alone, but I do agree with the opinion, why make us wait? With all due respect Mr. Lucas, be a little more like the Matrix movies and give me a choice. I want both, but I should be able to choose when and how I want to watch either of your visions of the adventures of Luke, Han, Leia, Chewie, Vader, etc...

When did the AOTC DVD come out in relation to the theatrical release? I'm just wondering when we can expect the DVD of Ep 3 after the movie comes out.

Actually I don't even mind the wait. The longer you wait for something the more you appreciate it. But the fact that he keeps saying it will NEVER happen is what angers me. I really do hope you guys are right, and he's just messign with our heads, or it's a marketing game or whatever... but i dunno...

If that's true, explain TPM to me.
