And as you admit here, you support anything GL does. That's simply dogmatic and blind to reason. We're not people who dislike Star Wars. We're just honest people who aren't afraid of critiquing poor decisions.
We have no reason to defend or support anything GL does. Only those who wish to maintain an income at LFL do.
Why do some of you wine and complain every time GL makes a change to the films? He has a right to change his films sure some of them are not good you can't please everyone. Sure not everyone is not going to like the changes but it the changes don't take away my enjoyment of the films.
I must tell you something. I LOVE alternative versions of movies, because they're alternative versions. I love e.g. the extended cut of Aliens, and I think it's better than the theatrical cut. But the fact is that I have the freedom to chose which of the versions I'm going to watch, because BOTH versions are commercially available in great quality, in the last releases they're even on the same disc !
The people who prefer the extended version can watch the extended version. The people who prefer the theatrical version can watch the theatrical version, and in the last Quadrilogy DVD & BluRay releases it means only selecting a different menu item.
And the most important thing is THE ORIGINAL VERSION IS PRESERVED.
George Lucas treats his films differently. He keeps changing them with every release. In the VHS days he only changed the colouring of some scenes, or the audio mix, but since the "digital days" he keeps changing the CONTENT of the movies. The original versions are NOT officially released (just a bad copy of the 1993 version) and NOT PRESERVED, and Lucas tries to do everything for persuade everybody to forget that they ever existed.
That's the main reason we keep on bitching. That's the main reason why this website exists. To persuade the main man that he should release BOTH versions.
