for me the original didn't really need tampering with

although i'll admit some of the changes mad where good there were also some very bad changes

i.e. in the original star wars Han Solo shoots Greedo under the table in the special edition Greedo shoots first and misses at point blank range :confused:

I have to vote for the special edition on vhs but it's nearly tied with the original. I liked the s.e. because of the additronal footage that wasn't able to be put into the original, like Jabba talking to Han and especially the robot that smackes the little robot :D but there were downsides as well like you said, Han & Greedo and they changed too much in the dvd's like adding the younger Annikin at the end.

My favorite ones are all the ones with Jar Jar in em'.


:D

Actually I like all the Star Wars movies and all the versions of them, only 2 things bug me...

The prequel Midichlorian schlock!

And in OT Han Solo not shooting Greedo first, that is utter BS!! That one scene in the cantina defined Solo's character, that and his non-chalant attitude leaving the cantina afterward, casually tossing some credits to the bartender and saying "sorry about the mess" this stated to us who he really was as a scoundrel type.

Interesting................. :D

Can't say I have any real problems with either new editions. I very much so dig the clarity of the DVD's. Not so much into Lukes color changing saber in ANH or Vaders pink saber. Pretty much indifferent to the added/touched up CGI. & I don't really care about Hayden in RotJ, it is a bit of a 'shake you up' seeing him there, but nothing I can't get use'd too. Finally the true Sidious is in ESB!!! About time, should have been corrected in the SE's. Greedo shooting 1st....... Doesn't impact me one way or the other.

So, I guess I don't mind the changes, it is the decision of the artist to change/destroy his work. Films/Arts are never completed, just released........

Being, none of the poll options fit my opinion, I'll just skip this vote. ;)

I really don't care who shot first either. I just wish that if GL was going to change it up, he could've at least made it look better :rolleyes:

I still love the originals, but dispite the changes, the DVDs are too good to pass up.

I like the original trilogy.


P.S.Did you know theres a little rodian kid named greedo in The Phantom menace who was anakins friend, I think they were the same people.

BTW RedHawke in the remastered Greedo tries to shirt first

Yep, well maybe. If your talking about the rodian jumping around at the end of the pod race then no, thats not Greedo. If your talking about the deleated scene where Anakin tries to kick a rodians teeth down his throat (hmm do rodians have teeth?), then yeah thats Greedo. :bernard:

original trilogy. but, as with most things, change is inevitable. if you want to get nitpicky, then don't do it around me. thanx. :D
THEY CHANGED BOBA FETT'S VOICE IN TESB!!!!
oh well :D

Aleggy
10-15-2004, 02:42 PM
the problem is some changes were good some were bad

i mean the scene in where han solo walks on jabba's tail is a mixture coz the scene itself was needed for the story so the fact that they had han solo walking behind jabba was a problem and having him step on his tail did look bad but i can forgive that because the addition of the scene was a good idea as it adds to the story

*Sarcasm in voice*
That's because the OT pwns!!!

Not that the PT are bad or anything, which they are not, the OT just has an extra character spark that the PT doesn't, the PT are far more visually stunning than the OT was, but that is just simple progress. :D

apparently polls can get shut down for spamming

recently Achilles held a poll about polls getting out of control and because we used that thread to discuss it we got accused of spamming and his poll has been locked this is a warning to everone and i would like to take a moment of silence in respect to the death of Achilles poll

in respect to Achilles who i thought was making a very valid point

Agrees but what can ya do...
Maybe I should make a poll discussing female Revans cup size in honor of Achilles dead commentary.





Just kidding mods, I wouldn't do that. You've made your feelings clear...;)

There ya go RedHawke, the sooner people start thinking in Saga, rather than OT/PT terms the better off they'll be ;)

i have to admit the line 'I'm from Germany and we have a proud history of censorship' was odd i mean i'm from England and we sensor everything and it totaly annoys the English public and to my knowledge the only thing i am aware of the germans censoring was ww1 and 2 games by taking out all references to nazis which i think must have been odd i mean who did they think the spitfires were shooting down, although i have heard thats now stopped

in fact any film that took the mick out of the germans/nazis germany would ban again that has now been stopped as germany now officially have a sense of humour

but to me that doesn't sound like s
censorship more like propaganda and dictatorship

but thats just me

the dvd special edition is the best as you get the best sound and quality. and the remastered effects make it look brand new without spoiling it
:atat:

FiEND_138
10-18-2004, 06:59 AM
Yeah, the remastered effects are great.
Except for Vaders pink saber. I find that a real sticking point. In fact both sabers in the RotJ end fight just seem off. They look.... smeared. It's especially apparent when the fight starts, when luke goes after Sidious & Vader blocks the swing. That part looks terrible with the two sabers bleeding together. Someone over at LFL/ILM needs to seriously get their eyes checked.

Thats really my only complaints about the DVD's. O, & Lukes color changing saber.

RedHawke
10-18-2004, 09:48 PM
OK... I changed my mind...

I like any of the Star Wars movies with a Lightsabre in it! :D

And you are right FiEND it is a 6 Movie long Saga and that is how people should view it. ;)

Shok_Tinoktin
10-18-2004, 10:45 PM
that might be easier to do once ROTS comes out, because it will bridge the gap, and bring the saga together a little (or lot supposedly) better.

FiEND_138
10-19-2004, 12:52 AM
^^
Thats very true as well. I suppose it would be easier, for those who haven't been viewing each episode as part of a 6 chapter story (not you personally Shok_Tinoktin). Mostly the "It's not teh OT redone exactly with a new cast in 1999!!!!" or "George Lucas is raping my childhood!!!!oneoneeleven!!" or "Teh actings all stiff.....how dare you say it was in teh OT too!!!" groups that seem to have the hardest time seeing saga, not distinctions in OT/PT. In my experience anyway.

Aleggy
10-19-2004, 02:55 PM
well i see it as a saga too

but the biggest problem with the new ones is nice big plot holes

the best thing about the new ones is the fact that now when you watch the old trilogy they help you understand darth vader a lot more

I voted for the Special Edition VHS trilogy because I have yet to see the DVD trilogy. It is probably better. I just know that the Trilogy Special Edition is so much more enjoyable than the original versions because of all of the special effect updates.
