Only the PT they grew up with isn’t quite the same one they’ve got now.

They probably have no idea.

All the more reason to include the theatrical prequels as well. It would be a fair, balanced, and straightforward approach if they simply included the original and final versions of I-VI.

But what if I want to watch a pan and scan version of ROTJ with Hayden but without Vader’s noooooooo. That’s the version I grew up with!

My LD comment was sarcasm…

And yes, all the major studios are putting new releases on DVD. I figured the old combo pack was a strategy towards eventually ceasing DVD-only packages, but now many new release BD don’t have DVDs in the package, but DVD-only is still strong. Have these people even watched a Blu-Ray? I’m sure most of them would be upset if their Netflix stream shot down to 480 due to a bad connection.

Was shocked to see this on Bill Hunt’s site the other week. If anything, I’d have expected the physical media market left to videophiles, with everyone else going to streaming over DVD.

Choosing to depict the lightsaber as anything more than a rarely used ceremonial weapon was an unwise decision.

What would you consider the limits of rare usage?

One-on-one combat with a lone gunman or another lightsaber wielder. Never in the battlefield against multiple gun-wielding combatants.

I agree with you then. Except when tearing up hoards of killer robots. That’s badass /s
