I Am Altering the Trilogy, Pray I Don't Alter It Any Further


First the good news: The picture and sound quality is fantastic, beyond desciption. This and the bonus disc will make it worthwhile to purchase the boxset. All those annoying Special Edition additions come across less obtrusive when the whole thing is digitized. Still, we don't get the originals, which is a letdown. Those were great pieces of film making, truly lightyears ahead of its time. Lucas and his team took puppets, plastic models, and so forth, and made a story that touched millions of people. Lucas himself once said that special effects are there just to help you tell a story. When he changed something that enhanced the experience, like most of his changes in Special Edition Empire-it was okay. But when he starts having Gweedo shoot first, and changing little bits of dialogue, you have to start asking why. There's no need for it. The rhythem of the stories was there, and it worked. Why does he keep messing with it? In this boxset edition, on Empire Strikes Back, he changes Boba Fett's voice! Again, I ask why? Fett's voice was awesome. He only spoke a couple of lines, but also became at least as popular as Vader. His new voice sounds much less sinister and abrasive. This just makes the Boba Fett we always knew to be obsolete. And what is going on with putting Hayden into the end scene on Return of the Jedi? Again, there's no need, not unless you also include Ewan Mcgregor along side him. Why does he keep messing with these movies? You had it right the first time Georgey boy! If you want to change something, how about taking Jar Jar out of Phantom Menace? He said it best himself, in one of the documentaries on the bonus disc. He started as a hungry film maker, wanting nothing to do with the corporate jerks. So he set up his own studio, and ending up becoming just another coporate jerk. Oh cruel fate!

I wouldent whipe my ___ with this movie.


This avid STAR WARS fan saw the movie, has the book, of course & purchased the DVD. No other galaxies far, far away or near, can compare with the stories that arise from Lucas' original Trilogy. I (as I hope other viewers do/did) am positively amazed and in awe of the STAR WARS world. THE PHANTOM MENACE, Episode I, even in the DVD, is clearly transcribed, imaginatively on top with the STAR WARS legacy. Technical, film-making, amazing techniques and visionary aspects of the DVD are clear and formidable.One could not have put together a better line of actors/actresses to get into the mode of pre-trilogy numbers 4/5/6 characters' as well as players who do not go into the future episodes. Liam Neeson as Qui-Gon Jinn is the Master Jedi/teacher of Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) -- the on-screen presence of these two fine actors is obviously a "made to be", charismatic interaction. Queen Amilda (Natalie Portman) carries herself royally and regally with sophistication and confidence, and "kicks..." at the "where applicable". The delightful Jar Jar is a little weak and difficult in the diction path, but added a wonderfully humorous character to the Episode. And, yes, it was hard to envision young, innocent-faced Anakin (Jake Lloyd) entering the future role of Darth Vader; however, Jake Lloyd plays the part to a "tee", not too young but yet not too old.I desire to see more of Yoda, R2-D2 and C-3PO' Episode I allows the viewer insight as to their beginnings with STAR WARS. Although I do hope some author will run the gamut of portraying Yoda "from whence he came'" -- this viewer finds all from I to VI short on the history of Yoda, an endearing, unusual, highly-intelligent, philosophical, gentle being. The costuming, makeup and representation of Darth Maul (Ray Park) is mind and eye-catching; Mace Windu (Samuel Jackson) contributes pizzazz and believability as one of the "best among the best" of the Jedi Force Knights' this viewer/fan looks forward to Jackson's carry over into Episode II (already a done deal) and the future III. (And, thank you Mr. Jackson for choosing purple as your light saber... my favorite color.)When "the Trilogy" came out years ago (and also saw the anniversary showings) in New York City, a fan or viewer cannot help but associate the faces of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, et al. without transferring in thought and mind their outstanding performances from Episode 4/5/6, in comparison with the portrayals and acting talents in Episode I II and III (the latter to be determined).Definitely buy the DVD and number II, of course. What would life be, without STAR WARS!

Lucas loosing his touch


Let's start with the film's good side. Darth Maul is awesome, Queen Amidala is beautiful, strong and inspiring. It's interesting to see the young Obi-Won and the evil plot Palpatine cooks up.

But why oh why did Lucas create the character of Jar Jar Binks?! He is a disgrace to Star Wars! Why elect a Queen? Why did those aliens have offense Chinease accents? Why did Obi-Won run like the wind from the droid destroyers but dragged his (...)when Qui-Gon needed help? And Anakin ACCIDENTLY destroyed the trade federation?

Lucas has lost his touch. The original Star Wars is better.

Star Wars - Episode II, Attack of the Clones (Full Screen Edition)
Better than the Episode 1


After seeing this movie I can't think of one incredibly good scene. The special effects are absolutely great, but in the first trilogy there was a really good subplot. Here, one of the problems is we know how ends, which ruins any good subplot. The thing that really saved this movie was the yoda fight scene. One big disappointment was there was no good space battle. The lightsaber fight between Skywalker and Dooku is pathetic. If Skywalker is such a good lightsaber fighter, supposedly rivaling even Yoda, then why is his lightsaber fight like 30 seconds? This movie though, is the turning point for Skywalker. It almost seem like Lucas had to rush the movie. The last thing I didn't like was the opening. In all the movies after the opening, the movie always pans onto a ship, in A New Hope the small fight between the star destroyer and the blockade runner, in Empire Strikes Back, a star destroyer launching probes, in a Return of the Jedi, the death star, and in Episode 1 the trade federation ships. All of these opening set the movie up, yet the opening in this movie I thought was quite disappointing. But, I do like the ending, especially with Palpatine looking over the Clone Army. All in all, this movie is pretty good, it could have been better, but it is good.

still the most convincing star wars movie


For me, this is still the most convincing star wars movie. Its plot progression flows very naturally, and there is very little dialog that feels artificial to me. I can watch this movie over and over, and it is still entertaining every time even after all these years. It's true that the acting in this movie is pretty bad by the likes Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill, but Alec Guiness, Peter Cushing, and James Earl Jones give superb performances IMO.I'm one who prefers the Special Edition release vs. the old version, but I hope Lucas will release both on DVD.

Star Wars - Episode I, The Phantom Menace (Full Screen Edition)
No attempt at creating a believable world


First off to those out there who are surprised or disappointed that there is no DTS version. Three little letters can answer that THX. THX is Lucas own sound, why would he produce a DTS version when what he wants is more people using THX. It doesn't matter whether DTS is better or not.
The Phantom menace is still plauged by a poor script, poor directing and at times poor acting. The special FX are of an extremely high standard, as well as some new innovations.
The DVD etras are very cool and worth it. The movie isn't trash. It just is not as good as it should have been. The DVD is well worth the money. And a good edition to your DVD libary.

entertaining movie with a couple of slow spots


I don't understand all the negative reviews of this movie by the film critics. It is better than the "Phantom Menace" in the sense that there is less Jar-Jar and more action. The acting could have been a little better, but the same could be said of all the Star Wars movies. The special effects are much better in the last two movies than in the previous trilogy. In fact, I have a hard time watching the original movies now because the effects look so poor in comparison. The plot is a little slow in the middle, but I think the rabid fans want as long a movie as possible so they won't complain. Overall, I would say this is the best installment yet, which is high praise since sequels usually are not as good as the original.

Star Wars Trilogy


Fans of Star Wars have been waiting a long time for this. All I have to say is that it's about time.

The quality of the dvds are good and the bonus material is pretty interesting. It moves through each of the movies and shows aspects of pre- and post-production. Plus, you get to see the training of the actors for the lightsaber match we've all been waiting for! This is a "must have" for Star Wars fans.
