Class Action lawsuit?!?

Hallelujah! While I"m sure your post will get blasted by the fan boy nation, I stand up and applaud you for saying it. It amuses me to no end to come here and read these border line psychotic/pathetic rants. If any of you had the money required to hire a and maintain a lawyer to start what any judge in the country would consider to be a frivolous lawsuit, perhaps you should find some other way to use it. My advice would be getting out of the basement, and joining the real world with the rest of us.

Not that it really makes a world of difference to me but my DOB is 4/11/76. I've said in previous post that while I have no recollection of Star Wars in the theaters the first time, I vividly remember both Empire And Jedi. My whole point was that the only truly original versions of these films where the original theatrical runs, because I'm sure there were alterations made with each video release.

DEVASTATED

I find the whole thing very funny based on the fact that Jeremy Bulloch did not even speak the lines for Boba Fett in the first place. There is no difference in one voice over from the other as far as I'm concerned, and I'd have to argue that such great lines as "He's mine." and "He's no good to me dead." are hardly revealing any information about the great Boba Fett. He had more lines in the Holiday Special than he did in the trilogy. While I admit he's a cool looking charecter I never really understood the obsession with Fett, I mean the baddest bounty hunter in the galaxy gets killed by a blind man in a bad three stooges sketch. And I know he's not really dead, but remember the books are not cannon.

It's not a matter of having an elitist attitude, it's very simply stating that Lucas has been changing these films since the very begining. The language on the tractor beam, C3PO's line that is either in or out depending on which version you see. He has tweeked with these for almost 30 years and sadly will continue to do so. I just find the rants humoruous escpecially when they come from people who weren't even alive when Jedi was released.

Reminder: Bootlegs of commercially available DVDs (such as the upcoming trilogy release) are NOT PERMITTED

While I admire the efforts and dedication of everyone on this sight, it does seem to be a wasted effort. I grew up with these movies. At 28 I saw them all in the theaters during there original runs. Granted I don't remember seeing Star Wars as I was only 1 at the time, but I have very fond memories of seeing Empire and Jedi in theaters with me family. I owned all the toys (and in a rather crafty move for every figure my mom bought me she bought another and left it in pacakage) and had the books,coloring,books,bed sheets everything. I am very much a product of the Star Wars generation, and am not ashamed to admit that. The one point that seems to get lost in any debates about Star Wars is that Lucas owns the universe lock,stock and barrell. It is for better or worse his playground to do with as he sees fit. When the special editions were released in 1997, I stood in line to see them. Like most fans I think my reactions were mixed, some of it worked and some of it didn't, but to see Star Wars again on the big screen was exciting. I took my son who was four at the time to see all three films and that began a love of them for him. I think the issue with old versus new stems from these films being a generational thing. Those of us who grew up with the original versions will always hold a place in our hearts for them. I've seen so many post ranting and raving against Lucas and his continued changes in these movies, and more than a few harsh reviews for the prequels. The prequels were never going to live up to the hype that we the Star Wars fans placed on them. No matter what was done they would never take the place of that galaxy far away that was so much a part of our lives. I own both versions of the trilogy on dvd and while I lean towards the originals, on occasion I prefer the cleaner versions of the SE. As a film maker myslef I know that I have done projects that I wish I could go back and change when the technology has made it possible for me to do it the way I wanted to in the first place. As artist it is the nature of our art to want to present what we think is the best possible version of our work. I for one will be buying the DVDs in September if for no other reason than to see what changes have been made, and hopefully like the SE continue to nuture the 28 year love affair with these movies.
