I apologize for not making it clear that what i stated was an opinion and not an absolute fact
But it is pretty much clear as day a fact at least to me, as long as the original movies no longer exist. I would not have a problem with the special edition if it did not replace the real films i grew up with.
Lucas is of the opinion that allowing choice is bad and that multiple versions should not compete with each other, not based on his words but based on his actions.
Ridley Scott had a final definitive vision of blade runner but it did not stop him and the studio from releasing the other versions of that film.
Return of the Jedi is the worst by far the picture quality of the blu ray looks worse than the spike tv broadcasts, even though those were not oar.
The lightsaber colors are still wrong, Vader yells nooooooooo!
He did not do that even in the horrid 2004 version. And of course Hayden is still posted over Shaw for some insane reason.
The stupid cgi ewok eyes and the Sebulga like Dug in Jabba's palace are not as bad but still unnecessary.
