It is not the point of giving up, it is just so deflating, it almost isn't worth getting that mad over anymore, because the guy is such a douchebag now, I am almost at the point of, "OK, when you do remaster it the right, send me an email, other than that don't do this halfass release."
It such a shame cause Lucas has turned moderate fans like me into a fan that hates the creator now, plain & simple. Everytime he tries to tie the sagas, he keeps pushing me away. I enjoyed the PT movies, of course they are not nearly as great as the OT, or will I ever love them nearly as much either, but I never got mad at Lucas for the underwhleming at times PT movies like many fans did.
But in 2004, when he just put out the SE on DVD, that is when he turned me from a Lucas defender, to a Lucas basher for ruining the OT by putting Hayden in ROTJ. That change alone keeps me from every popping in ROTJ SE, cause it is just so bad it is insulting to take out an actor who is dead now in real life, Sebastian Shaw, and put in Hayden as some gimmick to tie the trilogies that Lucas couldn't do while writing them. This is a gimmick to tie the trilogies, plain & simple, this has nothing to do with vision, or Lucas would have put some 20 year old actor in there in 1983!
Because of Lucas treatment of the O-OT, he has actually turned me off from the PT now, cause now I blame the PT for all these stupid changes cause Lucas keeps tinkering to make them the saga now. So this will never end as each release will feature some new tie-in on one of the OT movies that references the PT, and that is not appealing to me at all.
I know many here hate the PT, and I can't argue with anyone in that respect, cause I don't understand your hatred, but if Lucas would have kept the saga the same all these years: PT + O-OT = Every DVD set, then I think I would be a fan of all 6 movies, and just love the OT more. But now I am an O-OT fan who hates the SE & gets mad at the PT cause Lucas keeps trying to tie it to the OT with more changes.
I can't believe I feel this way towards my 3 favorite movies of all-time, it is a true slap in the face by our beloved creator.
