Product Description

Product Description

The next instalment in the 'Star Wars' franchise. Rebel Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and his friends continue to battle evil in the form of the decadent galactic empire, headed by Jedi-gone-bad Darth Vader (Dave Prowse, with the voice of James Earl Jones), as the ruthless Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) sets plans in motion to build a second Death Star with the purpose of destroying the Rebel Alliance.

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.

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.

All good things must come to an end, and so it is with the Star Wars saga. Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi is the thrilling conclusion to the story told over six movies. While it's not the best, it's still fun.

The story picks up pretty much where we left the characters at the end of the last film. Han Solo (Harrison Ford) has been captured by Jabba the Hutt and is still frozen in carbonite, a trophy in Jabba's palace. But his friends aren't going to give up. Before long, everyone has snuck their way into Jabba's house to try to free him. Will they succeed?

Of course, that's only part of the problem. The empire is building a replacement Death Star, bigger and better. They are currently hiding it behind the forest moon of Endor. The alliance needs to take it out once and for all, meaning that a group, led by Han and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) need to go down to the planet and disable a shield generator. Another assault will be led by Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) as he tries to take down the Death Star. And Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill)? Well, he's going to be busy confronting his father, Darth Vader, and the Emperor himself. Will they finally be able to overthrow the oppressive empire once and for all?

This movie seems to fall into two camps, either you love it or you can't stand it. Those who don't like it have some valid points. The movie is really two stories wrapped in one with very little to connect them. Then there's the Death Star II. I mean, haven't we already destroyed one of these things? Couldn't Lucas come up with something new for our heroes to have to fight?

While I absolutely agree these flaws are there, I still like the film. The action keeps moving forward constantly, never letting down for a minute.
