Okay, for those of you who know me, the next post might not be to rational. I beg forgivness.....just let me vent......hear me out.
My wonderful girlfriend purchased the original (and only) Star Wars trilogy on DVD for me, for my enjoyment.
I sat down today, popped in Return of the Jedi to experience said enjoyment.
Now I know he already did some changes, I saw the last special editon. Okay, while the taking out of the Yub Yub song broke my childhood heart, I dealt. While the partying on Courscant and Naboo angered me, even thought it doesn't fit with the storyline because Courscant won't be freed for some five years after that, I dealt, albeit slighty.
I was happy, watching with my Doby surround sound, some Oreos, a little milk. Comfortable Saturday morning. I think I saw the last few seconds of the movie.
Remember when Luke burns Anakin/Vader's body, then walks over to everyone else, he glances to his left and see's the spirits of Yoda/Obiwan and then some old guy appears as an older Anakain.
Well instead of the old guy.....it was Hayden Christian(sp?) the current actor who plays Anakin in the prequels.
Now no offense to Hayden, I've seen him in other movies like 'life is a house' and he was a good actor.
But you could have put Hitler in the role of Anakin, Stalin in the role of Amadala, and they would have put on a better performance then we saw in the last movie.
I'm very angry so I'm no going to do work that I have to do.
I ask you, if we woke up Da'Vinci today would we let him say (in a mario brothers voice) "hey, it's a me, Da'Vinci. i'm gunna go down to the village and get some loving and a cappacino, and then I'm gunna touch up the Mona lisa!"
Would Michalangelo 'fix the corner of the Chapel?"
No, so Mr. Lucas, you created something wonderful that's engrained in all our childhoods. Don't touch it, leave it alone, it belongs to the hearts of the people who watched it all these years.
Let go of your ego, and stay away from the old movies, and let Peter Jackson tell you how to make a movie.

I've seen a few clips from the movies, and he added like.. robots and little animals here and there. It just looks out of place. What the ***** is he doing? Think they should release the very original star wars, not force someone who wants the movie to buy these 'touched up' ones.
Personally I would not mind a REMASTERED version of the old star wars, and a release on DVD for easiness of watching purposes, but changing the movie.... uh. no. just no.
Makes me think of watching Dune the other day (the original.) where everytime the thumper went off you heard a crackle just because of the audio being from 1960.
hehe. Sexiness is worthiness...?
Ummmm, I LIKE the new version. I like little changes that make it more interesting. Yes, the original was good (Heck, I'm so old I've seen two of the originals in the theater when the came OUT) but nothing is so good that it couldn't use some improving. Even the Mona Lisa.
Now, on the subject of Hayden. I think he's PERFECT as the person who will become Darth Vader. Everyone hates him, but I think I have a reason why. It's basically Penis envy. We all want to BE him, so when we see him we picture ourselves in the role and despise him for being Darth Vader.
i loved the original 3, the trilogy, havent seen the DVD versions or whatever, but i wont get it now that he tampered with them. BUT, i saw the like, newer ones, episode 2 and 3 or whatever, they were THE gayest movies ive ever seen. They went soooo overboard with the yoda-talk, like yeah.. he says things backwards- but not EVERY statement, the small statements or ones that still sound cool just said normally he would say*dun dun dun* NORMALLY. like i just had to turn the channel because EVERY statement is just backwards, they just killed the hell out of it for me.
