The real reason I decided to create this post is that I am beginning to feel quite depressed when it it concerns the star wars trilogy. It's like I need a "fix" of the OT every year, and since there isn't a watchable version out there, I feel a sense of emptiness. sorry to exaggerate, but I feel the whole medium of film, past, present, and future can never be enjoyed without the OT, and that the treatment of the OT in this day and age makes me want to abandon anything related to film and television in a heartbeat. I know I really should not blame George Lucas for all my problems, and I know that for many of the person who read this post, they will be very angry at me for expressing opinions that they feel are just beating around the bush. I feel nothing but very bitter emotions when it comes to be associated with SW.
I also honestly feel that many are in denial that things will really turn around in the next couple of years and everything will be magically solved thanks to the power of Lucasfilm marketing. "So certain you are." I don't know what to say anymore, but I think I everybody would be happy I there was a time machine and we could go back 15 years and warn Lucas about the mistake he will make with changing the OT and creating the PT. Because this debate would not exist if there was some care by the creators of this franchise and they would remember to respect the fans and actually give what is needed. But now all things related to star wars is considered now some of the worst crimes against humanity, and it is only the very few things that come out of SW that are good.
Finally, could one really believe that 20 years ago their favorite film( and one of the most important milestones in cinematic history) would be condemned to technology that was to 1973 standards? Do any of you realize that ten years from now, the tyranny that the SE created will outlive the glory once associated with this franchise?
There, I am finished. Go ahead, flay me alive right now, say how this pst is a waste of time and all the flame wars that are certain to follow. But this is how I feel right now about the OT, plain and simple.
