if you ever get a chance read the original draft of A New Hope. It is god awful.

It's like a bad remake of Star Wars. It has some things that are familer but then other things are just weird like Vader isn't a Sith he is actually just an Admiral like Grand Moff Tarkin.


Thank god that movie never got made and instead he rewrote it several times.

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.

Before extra shot was added he was cold, ruthless, fast. Now he is just a lucky guy.
Adosi / Isoda / Xilok and a ******** of other chars @ Chimaera-Europe. | Eyefinity user!

so here is my problem with the CG Upgrades to the original trilogy.

I just rewatched A New Hope on Blu ray and you know what? The CG Looks awful.


The Jaba the Hutt scene looks dated and fake. The CG does not hold up to todays standards. Jabba in Episode 1 looks good but in A New Hope he looks so freaking horrible.

Also Jaba looked the most realistic when he was a puppet in Return of the Jedi.



CG man it just looks fake.

You need to look at it from his perspective. Lucas knows damn well that anything with "Star Wars" in its name will be immensely popular. The movies will destroy the box office and the merchandise will sell like crazy. And then release the movies every few years with a few edits and keep making money off the same exact thing.

He doesn't need to make it good. He just needs to make it. He's like the best businessman in the world. The Wall Street nubs have nothing on him.

Im not cool enough to say I watched the original 3 in theaters since I was born in 1993. But my parents bought me episodes 4-6 on VHS with the documentary before each one (which I skipped because I was 5).

So obviously, I love episodes 1-3 as well, I feel like they make a great addition to the original 3.

However, I don't like remastering these films for more money, just like the crap series "The Clone Wars." I hate the idea of episode 1 being in 3D. I also bought the Blu-Ray DVDs that just came out, and on some things I wanted back to the originals. The one I wanted most was Old Ben's yell at the sand people in episode 4.

I am all down for increasing quality, but when you **** on it with 3D effects, or make the entire film animated, it sucks.

I dunno anything about the blue ray remakes....bcuz i havent seen them. But I've seen a LOT of talk about Vader's "nooooooo!"

assuming this is the end of episode 3, when he learns padme died.....can somebody please explain to me whats wrong with that? Is it because luke already yelled "nooooo!" when he found out vader was his father? Is that why?

After watching Episodes I, II and III, you can clearly see that Anakin hates loosing family and friends. Anakin Yelled "Nooooo" in Episode 3 because he was told that Padme died. He loved he so much.

Now, for the part where Vader yells "No, Nooo" in Episode 6, its because hes not going to let his son die, at the hands of the Emperor, who indirectly killed Padme. I find this "No, noo" completely accurate.

No need for "No, noo" if there were no prequels.

So yes it makes sense to add it but just to fit the prequels.
That Noo scene from 3 killed the move to me. It is dead. Between that and the horror of 1... There were only 4-6. NO other movies... The first remakes of 4-6 were not all that bad though.

Once you see him as Vador you wanted to see him as the emotionaless monster we saw him in 4 and 5, and some of 6. This "Nooo" broke with his norm so drastically, while making sense at the same time, made you look at him not as the COOL dark lord sith that we all knew and loved, but rather a whiny little brat (losing all cool factor he had). If he had started to destroy and kill everyone/thing in the room and seem like he was about to yell, then go dead still, that would have been worlds better and appropriate.

It's not the end of Episode 3 that people are complaining about. At the end of Episode 6, when Vader makes his...final decision... in regards to Luke and the Emperor, Lucas has now taken the "NOOOO!" from Episode 3 and dubbed it over that scene in Episode 6. It's a terrible edit and it has no place in that scene.
"I know."
