Format: DVD
Years ago, my friend's accountant used to visit him, occupy the whole of the sofa and (presumably) eat, and it's a good measure of the cultural impact of this film that my friend's sons thought it apt to name the accountant 'Jabba the Hutt'. Jabba is a hell of a creation - fat, slug-like, utterly repulsive - just what the Dr Who designers were aiming for when they made Twin Dilemma, but they missed.

I've also been told that, by this stage, George Lucas was rich enough to need no more investment from Puritans, which is why the princess now wears far fewer clothes. It could of course simply be divisive propaganda, but the first act of the movie - an impudent tour-de-rescue of Han Solo - is in no way less good for having lots more bare Carrie Fisher in it.

It's worth noting - and this is much clearer in the light of the first three movies - that the Empire is implicitly species-ist, with Humans very much the dominant life form, while the Alliance is rather more equitable (though still very human-heavy), the area where non-humans have real power is in crime; in Jabba's court, no humans are in responsible positions, and those that are there stay covered up - Boba Fett and Lando, though obviously not Leia - Jabba the Hutt living the old ways in anceatral splendour, with his doit de signeur, his Rancor monster, his kooky musicians, and his supposedly scary but really quite endearing Gamorean guards, dropping captives to their deaths while picnicing du cote de chez Sarlac; it's almost possible to feel sorry for him as he laughs off Luke's ultimatum, because we all know the stupid fat thing has got it coming. Almost, but not quite. I like it that the film does not shy away from the considerable physicality of his death.

Like many other Star Wars fans i was not that impressed with many of the changes George Lucas made in the digitally remastered versions, even if the overall quality of the image was improved. My old from-TV VHS recordings are long gone, and i've been waiting since then (circa 1990) to get hold of a DVD version of the original, pre-remastered, films for the original trilogy.

This is that version. A two disk set with both the remastered and original film version in the case. With the slew of Star Wars re-releases we've had over recent decades it's been hard to tell the wood from the trees in relation to getting the original films, so here are a few pointers to help. For the third film, Star Wars Episode VI, Return of the Jedi:

1. The ASIN code is: B000FMRYNE
2. The code on the base of the spine is: 3392101001
3. The cover is as shown in the amazon listing for this review, with the 'Limited Edition' banner in gold along the top.
4. On the back it will say: "Disk 2: Original theatrical (1983) version of Return of the Jedi"

Now i've seen people remark that the quality of the original version is terrible, and i can't agree. Maybe we have become too used to over-saturated HDR and computer enhanced visuals? Certainly my viewing of the original versions in this set was no different to the VHS version i had previously or the countless times i watched it on TV as a kid. It's an old film, and these are old recordings of an old film, but in no way is the quality so bad as to ruin your enjoyment of the best of sci-fi stories in film.

NB: As is their wont, Amazon have bundled together reviews for various editions of this title - including the audio CD. This review refers to the two-disc DVD release including both the original theatrical cut and the special edition.

Watching the original versions of the original Star Wars trilogy on DVD is like travelling back in time - not so much to the innocence of youth but more to the days when picture quality was never much of a consideration on video releases and Fox had the reputation for the worst transfers in the business. Watching the PAL DVDs is to step back into an age of low resolution standards conversions from NTSC to PAL with all the loss of detail and motion blurring that that entailed: certainly if you've got one of the old remastered video releases you might as well hold on to that, because the quality isn't as poor as this. The sound quality is pretty awful as well. From Lucas' past track record it's all too easy to imagine this is just a scam to allow him to sell a remastered version a couple of years down the line, but it's even harder to dispel the notion that somewhere Lucas is whining "See how soft the focus is? How can you say these are better films?"

Return of the Jedi isn't as bad as the scarred memories of working at a movie theatre showing it five times a day for 12 weeks would have it, but it's still the least of the series. With no producer or studio to rein him in this time, Lucas offers something that's little more than a rehash of the first two films, but with bigger Death Stars, more spaceships, more teddy bears and far, far too many Muppets, it's crippled by an atrocious opening section where one after another the heroes try to rescue Han Solo only to get captured in the most tedious ways possible.
