Bout time they cleaned that up.

This is a change for the better.

Bah. Now what would have been better is if he had removed the mask and underneath it was another mask. And then he removed that one and underneath was another one.
For 10 minutes.
Then cue the Wendy Neuss credits.

Needs a harmonica solo.

I can't tell if this is a joke or not.

Had me fooled for a minute. I would feel like Star Wars was more immersive if they recast everyone with the current top Disney Channel stars.

Is this fan made?
Also holy shit, I haven't watched this movie since I was 10. Mark Hamill was quite an ACTOR!

This is the part where somebody comes and calls me a hipster, or somebody trying to be edgy but, i'm just glad i got over my star wars phase so quickly. I was 11-12 when i saw them, had a blast with them at the time, but i never got into them that much. This is why Plinkett's review are so good, it's tiredsome seeing all the "fans" going into melodramatic rants every time the franchise gets dumber. Just with anyone still trying to convince themselves that the Simpsons are still worth a damn, just stop. The franchise you loved when down the shitter, it's not your fault (unless you keep giving money to the creators) life goes on.
I don't know. I can definitely sympathize with the fans because those movies had some sentimental value to me, and even though they aren't exactly good in and of themselves, watching the guy who made them go back decades later and keep changing shit around -- from what I've seen, not for the better -- is both annoying and depressing to think about (either Lucas has run out of ideas, and so keeps going back to tinker with something he once did that worked; or he initially released a bunch of crap that was not what he wanted at all, and was never able to make peace with that fact, not even decades later; or he drank the "GEORGE LUCAS IS GOD (because I watched star Wars when I was a little kid and liked it)" kool-aid).
What actually upsets me about all this is I can't get a good copy of any of the Star Wars trilogy films in HD that doesn't have a bunch of stupid plastered all over it. I want it so sometimes I can pop it in, sit down, and remember a movie I saw as a little kid -- not so I can see all the CG graffiti a stale old man put all over them.
I understand the anger over not being able to have the original versions in recent home video formats. If Lucas wants to add more crayon dribble over the old movies he should at least offer the option to watch the non-fucked up versions. I just feel tiredsome every time somebody goes with another anti-Lucas rant.
