So that's why the blu ray edition of star wars is the only one I won't own.
I agree, so many changes makes NO sense at all. I think Lucas is just retarded nowdays. I have seen the updated versions one time, and i dident even finish.
They are impossible to watch. I mean he RUINS Solos char in just 1 sec, ruined for all movies with one stupid little thing.
