Someone on another forum I go to (a predominantly UK based forum) stated that this Blu-Ray set comes as a book form style packaging in the US, but the UK version is different, or something. Not sure if this is true? I know the LOST boxset in the UK had different packaging so it could be. I'm not planning on getting the Blu-Rays because of the more stupid changes. The DVD's have great picture, although I have to admit that I'm curious to see what it looks like in Blu-Ray. Also, I wouldn't get the set with the prequels anyways for obvious reasons...

I just looked at amazon.com to see what the reviews say for The Complete Saga and I was shocked. I knew there would be a lot of negativity, but currently there are 789 1 star reviews out of 1066, that's shocking! eek...

Thanx for the packaging shots, so that's the UK packaging you’ve posted there, Bend-err. I've just looked at a video of the US packaging on amazon.com (courtesy of IGN) and it is indeed in book form in the US. Looks more tidy and space saving, although pretty similar art-wise, hmm...

Seeing the guy in the tan shirt has ruined the Harry Plinkett reviews.  Still, the documentary looks interesting.

I love how you spell Anakin's first name.  But yes, that line is brilliant.

'I don't like sand, it's coarse and it gets a-everywhere.  But not like here, here everything is soft.'

Which could be the dumbest line in cinematic history and then she kisses him.
Personally I don't think it's as bad as Anakin's first ever line to Padme - child as he may have been... though I do like how that was lampooned in Knights of the Old Republic II

Yes, let's attack a child actor who cannot act.  Are you Nixon?

The point, perhaps, is not to attack the kid, but the people who, after scouring the whole fucking planet for this crucial role, picked a kid who couldn't actually act.

Well, yeah.  But I think he did come off a bit as a truly innocent kid caught up in the saga, rather than yet another typical charismatic child actor.

Since my last post I watched a video about the casting of the role, and I have to admit that, at least of the children they showed in the vid, he seemed like by far the best. Hard to believe out of the 3,000+ kids they auditioned, but oh well.

You can never have too much pod-racing. Also, we needed more of the two-headed race announcer. He was the coolest character in all of Star-Wars, what with all his very original lines that meshed so well with the Star Wars universe.

bend-err: You fell into cynicism and bitterness long before they came out, and you still hated them. Svip beat me to it. You bastard.

Conclusion: The only good time to watch eps 1-3 is if you've never even heard of star wars.

nonsense. You want to be innocent, naive, and oblivious to what eps 1-3 could have been.. That gives you the optimal chance of surviving the experience with a minimal amount of organ failure.

Fair enough, so have I, but I'm still glad I prepared for star wars ep 1 by eating a large number of small rocks. They weighed down my intestines, which prevented them from climbing up my neck and throttling my brain in self-defense after the first midichlorians scene.

I've never seen The Phantom Edit.  Do you know whether that particular bit of nastiness was edited out?

Watched Stars Wars and Empire Strikes Back on blu ray and they are great on HD.  To be honest, Greedo shooting first doesn't bother me.  Back in 1997, when i first saw that scene, it had been so long since I had seen Star Wars, that I didn't notice Han shooting first.  In fact, it wasn't until people started complaining Greedo shot first that I noticed it.  That scene happens so fast that I don't notice it.  Lucas changing it because it makes Han look like a cold blooded killer, Greedo had a gun pointed at him.  It gives Han every right to shoot first, though it's not as bad as replacing guns with walkie talkies in E.T. but Greedo shooting first happens so fast that I'm not bothered by it.

Also, why is Leia a bitch at the beginning of Empire?  Han says he has to go to pay a debt to Jabba or he'll get killed and Leia acts like he's leaving because he's going to buy cigarettes. Yeah, he's a jerk for wanting to live.  She says he's important to the Rebellion, but he's no good dead.  Why didn't the Rebellion ever help pay Han's Debt to Jabba?  But I guess if that happened we'd lose the first act of Return of the Jedi and Leia slave girl scene would never come to be.

Also why does Yoda stay behind when Luke heads to Cloud City?  Yoda, I'm sorry, gives up way too easy.  He abandons hope in Episode III and hides out for the next 19 years, letting people after people die at the hands of the Empire.  Why not attempt to train Jedi Dagobah to help out with the rebellion during those 19 years?  Yoda says it'll take a skilled Jedi to defeat Vader, so why doesn't he go along with Luke.  They explain why Obi Wan can't interfere since he's a ghost.  Also Luke going to Cloud City is pointless, since he doesn't help his friends, Lando ends up doing that and they escape.  The only reason for Luke going to Cloud City is for R2D2 to meet the other group so he can reactivate the hyperdrive at the end.  Though the Luke vs. Vader scene is awesome.  


Regardless, these are just nitpicks and I really love the original trilogy enough to overlook these things that it doesn't disrupt my enjoyment of these films.

I love the idea of Han quitting the Alliance so that he can go buy cigarettes.
