    why George did this ??

    why George did this ??

    I got the dvd trilogy, and i saw with my own eyes that he did it.... i don't understand why...
    it's not logical at all,we don't know what Anakin will looks like older so why change the actor ? in that way, he should have put Ewan Mcgregor too...

    For consistency, shouldn't they have replaced Alex Guiness with Ewin McGregour? That would mean going through and replacing Alex Guiness in EPIV,V and VI.... or is that in a couple of years time when all 6 movies are released on the super-duber-ultra-ultra special edition (I suppose it will give George something else to play and tinker with)?

    there are tons of little changes he put in these movies that stick out like a sore thumb. I persnally hated the SEs because every little "improvement" contrasts so harshly with the rest of the film. Some of them just look sloppy too. Particularly the part in the cantina where Han Solo is confronted by Greedo and he makes Greedo shoot first and Han does this really odd jerky dodge.

    I don't know. I guess I'm just nastalgic for the days when special effects weren't the single focal point of the movie.

    i liked the SE for the space battle in new hope, and also making the lightsabers look better..hehe
    i think the single change that pissed the most people off was the greedo part...there was no point to it.
    the fleet in jedi got a much needed beefing up, i liked that part..overall in ESB and RotJ, the SE was pretty subtle, and wasnt too bad. but ya, the new ending was kinda dumb..again, didnt see the point.

    He just does not know when to stop!! This makes NO sense at all, the only logic I could see behind it is if Anakin as a person died in the upcomming RotS, then this would work, BUT! Luke brings him, back, restores Vader to Anakin and completes the cycle meaning the older Anakin should be portrayed, which he was, which made sense.....SO WHY CHANGE IT!!!

    Yeah, all the added shit sucked, but I'm glad they cleaned it all up cause it all looks so good now. Any CG sucked ass, added scenes sucked ass, and yeah... laaaaaaame, but I'm still going to get them when I get the money

    I refuse to give Lucas money for doing this. I hates him I does. Yes, my precious.

    Star Wars and the Matrix piss me off because there is so many directions they could have taken them that they didnt. Instead they spend time doing this crap...

    I think that some people were having a hard time reading the idea that the original old guy was Annakin, because you only see that guy for like one scene before that and you can only see half of his face and his head is all messed up. I'm sure they've had plenty of time to figure it out by now though. I dunno it doesnt bother me all that much. (compared to the Greedo scene and the CG song and dance in RotJ)

    May the force be with me....the force of a thousand lawyers.

    Can man account for having children in a world, where they have to grow up with Greedo shooting first and CG sequences in the original Star Wars trilogy?

    yeah, I agree. They made Greedo shoot first so he was a *real* bad buy and Solo was a *real* good guy.

    Give me a fucking break. Solo was *barely* a good guy, and the only thing that made him even remotely good to begin with was the promise of money.

    I like my mercenary characters mercenary. His change of heart was fine. But dammit. I won't get any more of the "special editions" because they are so far removed from the original story line now as to be totally bland.

    Ug. fucking metachlorianwhatchamchallits.

    I read an interview with the Wachoski's that suggested they did not intend Matrix reloaded and revolution to play out the way they did. Keanu Reeves had some ideas of his own(regarding philosophy, plot development etc.), and because the studio couldn't do a second and third movie without him, was forced to incorporate Reeves input(and thereby screw the whole thing up).
