If it weren’t for our anger at the burying of the OUT, would anyone here care about completionism with the prequels? There are probably tons of movies with tiny little changes like this on home media that no consumer ever noticed.

I think if it was an all-in-one set or nothing just to own a restored OOT most people would be happy to buy it but never watch the prequels.

As for the other movies you mention, at least when a director’s cut exists it is advertised as such. They don’t pretend nothing happened and expect everyone to believe changes made decades later were always the same. Only something like Amadeus is only available in one format (the longer version) but at least it’s always labelled correctly.

Mark should have got an Oscar nomination at least. He’s always had the acting chops. If not for the shadow of Luke hanging over him in the 80’s, he could have been cast in the Amadeus film after doing the role on Broadway.

It’s easily the best performance I’ve seen from him. Kinda weird that he still has sour grapes about the direction considering how great the role was, but then I guess if you look at the full quote he understands how lucky he is to have gotten another crack it at all. Another trilogy with the old cast as the stars was never gonna happen at this point, and if it did, it would have probably sucked.

Agreed.

The films doesn’t need anything to do with Anakin or Vader, something that is so played out and over done that it’s a toy selling joke at this stage. The tragedy of Vader gimme a break.

I’ve always assumed the tragedy of Vader was the entire saga.

I’ve always presumed this was a BS retcon.

What we do need however is a ghost or vision of some kind. I’m thinking Kylo seeing the past, and feeling regret. He dreams about his parents and his uncle. Something he buried under all the rage. And then he realises he screwed up. Get all three classic main characters in one last scene, something special. Then he can die.
