1.0 out of 5 stars Not It, September 22, 2006
This review is from: Star Wars Trilogy (Widescreen Edition Without Bonus Disc) (DVD)
These are not the original movies; they are modified versions of the original films that have been tinkered with over the years in various ways. I sold my copies cheap at a garage sale recently, because I could no longer stand to watch them. If the original movies were released on DVD, I would probably buy them. I loved those old movies without the added musical numbers, CGI characters, extra sound effects, etc., etc., etc. This version was a disappointment because all of that new stuff is so distracting that it takes away from the gentle spirit and lovable goodwill of the original theatrical releases.

I have seen all but the last one of the star wars movies and enjoyed them all as I am a sci-fi affectionado. However, I am a bit of a purist, too. I won't buy, or even watch, a colorized movie that was originally produced in black and white, any more than I would waste my time looking at a Picasso that had been changed in anyway from the original. If you change the smile on the Mona Lisa, you've ruined the picture, period. When I discovered from this post that the dvd package offered differed from the original version, I immediately lost interest. I will buy this trilogy when it is offered in it's original form, not before. Thanks to this poster for alerting me to what would have been a mistake on my part.

I am with you on this. I,too, hate tampering with original films as much as I hate edited versions of them for political correctness reasons. George Lucas has lost a lot of my respect since he cannot leave well enough alone. If he felt that his original films were not perfect enough then he should come up with a different storyline about a different movie and fulfil his wishes in a different manner.
