Star Wars: A New DVD

Yes, folks, it's sad, but I'm excited to hold in my hands (as many of you out there will) the entire Star Wars Trilogy on DVD (is it still a trilogy considering there's now 5, soon to be 6, films and the possibility of a further 3?).

Approximate time before I rip the cellophane wrapper off and place the first disc delicately into my DVD player: 0.346 seconds.

Now, do I look at the bonus DVD first? Do I watch the movies in order? Do I watch my favourite scenes as fast as I can? Decisions, decisions.

    I say have a marathon... invite your friends over and watch them all back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back. Make a day out of it or something. If you're going to be a Star Wars geek, go all out!

    Actually, I watched A New Hope the other night and, aside from being a little disappointed the set was the 'Special Edition' movies and not the originals and that 'Digitally Remastered' seems to mean 'We cranked the saturation levels up to max' I didn't see much new.

    Yesterday, I was watching The Empire Strikes Back and had a 'What the fuck' moment. Not only does the speach between the Emperor and Vader go on longer and cover more (and the Emperor now has yellow/green eyes and more wrinkles than a shar-pei dog) but they've changed the voice of Boba Fett!

    Lord only knows what they've done to The Jedi Returns.
