Why was the '04 DVD set such a botched release?
Time

adywan I am feel your frustration but to call me and other people that are star wars fans idiots that's not right. And by you saying lucasfilm does'nt care about the fans that's wrong if they did'nt care we whould not have the star wars films on dvd to begin with.  But you don't care if lucasfilm puts the films on blu-ray becuse people like you like to bash Lucas and pick on the guy. That's class-less in my opinion.

Sound mixes from different versions of star wars
Time

Now I know a lot of people inclueding me was not happy about the sound mix problems with the 2004 dvd of star wars a new hope. But you have to understand Star Wars (A New Hope) is a 31 year old movie and it was mixed several times over the years when the flim came out and even the 2004 dvd. Because when they restored the sound the 1st time for the 1997 special edition the people at lucasfilm and the people at skywalker ranch at a hard time finding the sound elements because the flim was not properly stored and the sound elements where all in boxes. The other two flims in the star wars trilogy episodes , 5 and 6 ESB and ROTJ where stored properly because by the time they made Empire and Jedi Lucasfilm had it's own mixing studio in San Rafel Cal. Sproket Systems now called skywalker sound. My point is other flims for sound elements more than 30 or 50 years old are harder to restore.

Star Wars on Blu-ray?
Time

Thank you bkev and I do argee with you the theatrical re-releases are kindof pushing it like you said. Star Wars (A New Hope to saga fans.) was only re-released 3 times 1978, 1979, and 1981 before the SE in 1997  Empire was re-released only twice in 1981 and 1982 before the SE in 1997. And Jedi was re-release only once in 1985. I look it all up at IMDB. So maybe for the blu-ray releases the orginal trilogy the Orginal Theatrical Cuts from 1977, 1980, and 1983. Also the Special Editions from 1997 and 2004 and then the final editions of the flims for the blu-ray release.

When and in what format was the first time you saw Star Wars?
Time

Elyria Ohio Monday Febuary 3rd 1997 the 1st time I 1st saw star wars in a theater in 1997 for the speical edition. But ( this is going to sound stupid.) I was still afaid of Darth Vader and ran in and out of the theater a lot of people that where their that night thought I was crazy but later my dad told me don't be afaid he's just a man inside a mask. But it was a fun experince to see star wars on the big screen for me and my dad.

I thought the goal of this site was to get the original versions of The Star Wars Trilogy Epiosdes 4,5, and 6 on DVD and blu-ray
Time

The format war ended  back in febuary if you'ved read tech or dvd news lately blu-ray is the winner of the format war. And I agree with you include all the versions of the original trilogy that exist for exsample: 1977 Orginal Theatrical Cut, 1981 Re-Release , 1993 Laserdisc Release, 1997 Special Edition, 2004 Speical Edition, and The final, final release of the film. Star Wars Episode V The Empire Strikes Back: 1980 Orginal Theatrical Cut, 1982 Re-Release , 1993 Laserdisc Release, 1997 Special Edition, 2004 Speical Edition, and The final, final release of the film. Star Wars Episode VI Return Of The Jedi: 1983 Orginal Theatrical Cut, 1985 Re-Release , 1993 Laserdisc Release, 1997 Special Edition, 2004 Speical Edition, and The final, final release of the film. Whould you include those versions on blu-ray? What do you think star wars fans? Coment on this and ask me what whould you want to see on the blu-ray releases for the star wars trilogy episodes 4, 5, and 6.

I thought the goal of this site was to get the original versions of The Star Wars Trilogy Epiosdes 4,5, and 6 on DVD and blu-ray. But the feeling I get from a lot of people some are nagitve towards Mr. Lucas. he made these films after all. Insted of bashing Lucas and trashing the 2004 dvd sets like most people on this site constanly do we need to get back to the goal of getting the original versions of The Star Wars Trilogy Epiosdes 4,5, and 6 on DVD and blu-ray. That's all of us star wars fans want after all the originals on dvd and blu-ray. That's the message that needs to be heard and not so much nagativity.

Janskeet when LFL restored the star wars trilogy episodes 4,5, and 6 in 2004 for the dvd release the 1st where sent to flim restorationest John Lowery to restore them and then they where sent to ILM for Color Correction and any addition changes Mr. Lucas wanted to make to the flims and yes the original version and SE's where restored before work on the DVD began because they where restored from the original nagitives.

OT Special Edition haters
Time

Look skyjedi2005 George Lucas is a flimmaker and he has the right to change the flims if he wants to so stop complaning. I get so tired of people who don't like the re-stored star wars trilogy speical edition. Just stop complaning about it ok. And I agree with you adywan when all the star wars flims comes out on blu-ray eventually for Epiosodes 4,5. and 6 release all the versions of the flims not just the SE.
