What has he done?!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Star Wars: The Original Trilogy (Episodes IV-VI) [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I'm almost speechless. What has he done?! He has taken one of the most best loved and iconic series of science fiction films ever created and meddled so much, that they are now embarrassing to watch. I cringe at every new addition he has implemented. Is he not listening to fans? Does he not even care? All he had to do was clean up and restore these (originally) beautifully made films. Nothing else was required. For full details of his changes, read others reviews. I'm not kidding, its almost like a joke that these have been released like this. I've awarded the box set 2 stars purely because of the crisp transfer and clear audio.
We (the fans) have a difficult choice to make. We want to see and hear them all in glorious HD, but the trade off is these god awful changes he keeps making which spoils the films themselves in an unbelievable way.
Spielberg has since seen his errors by now dismissing the changes he made to ET. They were unnecessary and irrelevant. Ridley Scott showed how much he respects his films and his fans by only subtlety enhancing and restoring his masterpieces. Lucas does not seem to have the sense to comprehend that all he has done is spoil and tarnish what were to me, and millions of others, the most amazing and originally realised pieces of film ever created. Shame on you Lucas. Get rid of these ludicrous changes and release the originals in in all of their restored glory. We loved these films and want to continue to love them.
