Just as I suspected, I got my Star Wars DVDs in the mail on Friday, and I just collected them today.
It occurs to me that I’ve been doing a little bit of complaining about the ‘new editions’ without actually seeing them, but since I was forced(sorta) to get them, I think I’ll actually watch and try to make my own opinions.
See, it’s not so much that he’s updated the graphics, I can understand that. Back then, the tech just wasn’t available to make what he wanted. And now that it is, he’s remaking them in the image that he has in his head.
That, and it’s securing his financial future, but that’s a different sore point.
It’s all the little unnecessary changes that he’s made that really tick me off.
These little changes that are supposed to link the new films with the original. Boba Fetts voice, the ghosts at the end, that kind of thing. They didn’t need to be changed.
Possibly Jango Fetts son took up smoking, and his voice is different from his fathers?
Anikan did eventually grow older, and the ghosts represent how they looked when they died, not when we last saw them.
Why not change Obi Won’s ghost as well?
Anyway, it’s those kinds of things that I’ll be looking for, and see if I actually notice them enough to be irritated.
I’m sure I will be, but at what level? We’ll see.
All that being said, and now that I have the new editions, I think I’ll watch them this week and vomit my opinion of them on this blog.
Because really, what else have I got to do?
Actually, I have quiet a bit to do, but these movies aren’t all that long.
And no, I won’t watch them all tonight. It’s a school night afterall. ^_^
I’m sure I’ll be blogging as I’m watching, but I’m going to try and clean up the post some, just to make it easier to read.
So, stay tuned, it might be interesting.
And then again, maybe not.
