When did you feel George Lucas was turned to the Dark Side?
First of all like many of you I'm not a fan of the current official versions of Star Wars or the prequels. However, there was a time I was actually exited about the prospect of Special Editions. Who didn't want to see the movies restored in the movie theatre? Who didn't want to see an extended cut? Jurassic Park was a sensation, and CGI seemed to have a bright future. Reviews for the Special Editions were also generally very favourable. I couldn't wait to get them on video, at the time. So what happened?
For me things changed with the prequels or actually after the second prequel. I didn't hate TPM, but didn't love it either. For me the love scenes in AOTC were rock bottom. These scenes rank to me with the worst scenes in movie history. Then the OT came out on DVD, and things started to take a turn for the worse. Prequel characters and voices in the movies I loved. Now I could not even enjoy the OT, without the stink of the prequels. That's when I got a very bad feeling. How about you guys?
