I am eagerly anticipating this release - this looks like the perfect Christmas day flick to enjoy with the family. The cast line-up is fab (former Bond Roger Moore and Katie McGrath aka Morgana from "Merlin"). Definitely will be pre-ordering this!
Neo film noir meets science fiction in this fantastic Ridley Scott film that has stood the test of time. I would go so far as to call it one of the greatest films ever made. Scott's rich vision of the dystopian future originally inspired by Philip K Dick's book is one of the most compelling to date. The removal of the much-hated voice-overs was genius. Scenes have been added/extended. Special effects are now more impressive. Audio has also been improved. There are countless other versions of this film, but, hands down, the only one worth watching going forward is the final cut.
Whether you are a fan of the original or the remastered versions of the films, this box set has both. Whilst I have a soft spot for the original films, some of the enhancements made by Lucas in the remastered versions make sense to keep the film up-to-date and relevant for the new generation. Explosions, lightsabers and Jabba especially look far more impressive in the remastered version. Other changes are more questionable, but the beauty of this box set is that you can watch either or both and compare/debate to your heart's content. Oh, and Han definitely shot first!
