5.0 out of 5 stars At Last!!, 23 Jan 2007
This review is from: Star Wars Trilogy 6 discs Limited Edition Tin Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
Well it's taken long enough but for all of those waiting to see the version of the Star Wars trilogy that they remember from the cinema, before Mr. Lucas decided to make an extra buck or two by 'improving' them, the wait is over. Contrary to the statement made by another reviewer these are the original theatrical releases (two of the three scenes he says are now 'missing' were cut before Star Wars was ever released and although stills do exist of those scenes they were never part of the film as seen at cinemas. The third he mentions is still there, though he is remembering it incorrectly.) Don't expect 5.1 Dolby, cleaned negatives or anything other than the films as they were thirty years ago (and yes, it looks like 30 year old film stock), and that's exactly as it should be. If you want the cleaned, enhanced, 'special' editions they are here as well but for me they just serve as a reminder of why George should have left the originals alone.

This review is for a completely different SKU, namely the DVDs. I bought these Blu Rays expecting the original trilogy as seen in the cinema. Please remove it :(

Yes, it's a serious failing of Amazon's review system - happens all the time. I spent about 30 minutes today trying to work out how to read reviews for a DVD boxed set I wanted, amongst the 100 reviews for every other version of the same films in 5 other formats. Very annoying :(
