After re-watching the movies again this weekend, there is one horrible glaring issue that has ALWAYS bothered me that they could have easily "fixed" but I'm sure they chose not to.

Boba Fett should NEVER scream like a little girl going into the Sarlacc pit.

That one seemingly insignificant detail just about ruins the whole character to me. Galaxy's most feared bounty hunter, yet he squeals with fear over a giant Venus flytrap. Suuuuure.

Taking that out would almost balance out the travesty of Vader's "Nooo". Almost.

Also, since no one else seems to want to take the hard-liner position, I will. These are not Lucas's movies - they belong to the public now as all great works of art do. It is the imperfections which give movies their character and personality for lack of a better word. (IMHO)

You don't go back and tweak "Potemkin" or "Citizen Kane" just because you can. SW is no different, Lucas be damned. Just my two cents~

I liked that...  It was more "Classic Han" to me...  He's aggressive, and a horndog.  Kind of would've liked to have seen that integrated a bit more I guess.  I like him walking away from her, but her walking away from him because he's sort of being a pig is kind of funny too.

No way in hell.  The lithographs are crap.  The Blu-rays are crap.  Star Wars has become crap.  Thank you very little, George.  Not even if the lithographs were lined with gold.  Until the original, award-winning versions are made available to us:

NO SALE.

It's Harmy's AVCHD Despecialized Editions for me.  I've spent no money on official releases since 2006, and it's going to stay that way.  Sure, there's the bonus materials, but those will be made available for FREE soon enough.

The real rebellion against the Blu Rays would be buying the Lady Antebellum CD because you'd be buying a CD...  who does that?

If Lucas wants to keep tinkering with the old movies, why not just do a modern reboot with Zac Efron or whoever's popular with the teen girls these days.

Peter Griffin tweaked Citizen Kane.

No, no, no.  Zac Efron was soooooooo yesterday.  Justin Bieber is the only way to go now :)

I will still be buying up the Blu-Rays.  The "Vader No" scene has actually grown on me a bit the past few days.  Besides I have the unaltered ones on DVD from the "extras" during the last release.  Which buy the way I watched over the weekend to see Greedo shoot first and the Death Stars blow up without halos.  I had forgotten about the brown cloud under Luke's Landspeeder.  Fun stuff.  I don't know why Lucas just does not add that into the Blu-Ray extras?  Oh well. 

I know.  I know.  Burn me at the stake for lining Lucas' pockets...blah...blah...blah.  I probably will go for the Target Lithograph. If nothing else the Complete Saga is the cheapest I have seen so far at $80.
