Well I haven't got one yet, however my brother purchased it, he said if you are really die hard about wanting the original print that was the only reason to get it. He said that the "original" cut of Star Wars was like watching in the theater in '77, literally.Trekfreak said:Anyone got the set yet? if so, on a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate this set?
And what would the differences be between the 77 and 84 versions? I was born in 78...one of my earliest memories is "Empire" in the theatre.Trek Ace said:Like what has been mentioned by folks on other boards, the Star Wars film, only has the original title of the '77 release restored. The rest of the film is the 1984 rerelease version.
Yes! That's how it was released. Nobody knew there'd be a sequel, much less four more.phrankenstign said:....so it is REALLY called STAR WARS.....and NOT "STAR WARS Episode IV A New Hope"?
I wonder if Da Vinci would have fixed Mona Lisa's smile into a huge grin if he'd been given the chance to digitally alter it at a fraction of the cost of repaining it.....HmmmmJohn P said:Yes! That's how it was released. Nobody knew there'd be a sequel, much less four more.
It was a breath of fresh air to see Star Wars again in all it's unadulterated, unaltered, Han-shoots-first glory. It's like watching a complete movie, rather than a film-school excercise that been diddled with and hacked up to suit an indecisive ADHD student's every whim.
