    Trust me, I have read and seen a lot more than this! Anyone see the scene with blinking Wicket? Yeah, ol crazy George thought the Ewoks needed to blink now! Also he replaced Obi Wan's dragon scream that scares the sandpeople in Ep IV with something that sounds like a drunk guy howling. And he made Jabba's front door RIDICULOUSLY huge. Just stupid stuff that didn't need to be changed. It's sad that we can't have the versions of the movies that stood for 20 years. What began in 1997 was a dismantling of classic theater. The versions now are almost parodies of the originals.

    You know one change that George made in the 90's that irratated me (and I never here anyone else talk about) is the change at the sarlacc when Han is trying to save Lando. Lando shouts "wait I thought you were blind".......in the original Han says "trust me". Which is a very Han Solo thing to say. In the updated version Han says "Its ok I can see a lot better now".

    The systematic emmasculation of Han Solo, such a shame.

    Han shot first.

    I wanted to confirm something, so I just watched the vhs version from 1987. I'm not certain, but I believe the only change at this point was the addition of "A New Hope." (Someone please correct me if that is not the case).

    At any rate, Han shot--end of story. There was no first or last. While there are a few very minor things that I don't mind change-wise, I would be much, much, much happier if things had not been tampered with at all.

    Most of the changes are pretty minor and can be easily overlooked. However, the Vader scene is just silly, over the top, unnecessary, and lacking any sense of subtlety that it used to have. George Lucas: Prequelizing our original trilogy one special edition at a time!

    But... Why?! For Glodenrod's sake! It's pointeless!

    Star Wars would be even greater if George Lucas walked away from it...

    Hmm. . . not too keen on the "No!" clip.
    The Ewok eyelids actually make sense. That's something that bugged me about ROTJ. Any animal with an eye like that has to blink.
    Have to wait and see about other changes I guess.

    I really don't get why they keep updating them. The movies are already perfect the way they are.

    Why the cg Jabba in A New Hope!? I absolutely hate the rendering of him. Ole jabba must have really started eating the cheeseburgers and fries with extra mayo after after Episode IV ' cause he is much to skinny in ANH!!!!

    Maybe Jabba got on the Jenny Craig diet after Episode I. Size matters not! Judge me by by my size do you? maybe Yoda stole those words from Jabba???

    Lol, what was that? I liked the first 'no', but the second, long one... That was just a ***-moment. Ah, well. I still love Star Wars, with or without the changes. Plus, I don't have blu-ray, so I won't have to worry too much.
