Hi, for those interest in Star Wars and exploring the political and historical influences on the films, I have a new website, the Poli-Sci Jedi, where I explore those issues. You can check out the Facebook page as well.

Okay, so I know it's a well-worn cliche, but the original Star Wars film really did change my life. I had no idea about the film I was going to see and the opening scenes left me exhilarated and awestruck. People were actually paid to dream up, plan and make this stuff! I can trace so many of my decisions about the things I study and the work I do back to that moment.

While I like the original Star Wars Trilogy, I think it's massively overrated. I think it's overrated because when you get down to it, it's a pretty simple "good vs evil" tale merely told in an imaginative universe, though people still insist that it's the best creation in the sci-fi genre (though it's best to classify Star Wars as space-fantasy or high tech-fantasy). It's GOOD, though that's as far as I'll go with my praise.  I honestly would have …

A couple of decades ago..... at a theater near you....
I just got done talking about the man who was once the epitome of movie villany and coolness, Darth Vader and how his star took a hit after the prequels came out and I couldn't look at him the same way.  Lets take a look at the series that started it all.      The three movies all have different stories but come together under the similar thread of a small and unequpied rebellion facing a tyranical empire with a young man learning a magical power to assist the rebels …

Anyone who lover the old Serial Movies or Serial Comic Books will adore this set of movies.

Although tackling the subject of star wars is difficult, it is important to keep in mind the way that it was made- the way that it was hyped, and how George Lucas came to fame. Lucas had only released THX 1138, a futuristic dystopic film starring Robert Duvall; and American Graffiti, about American life. Although both the movies received mild success (and are more recognized now, post-star wars), undertaking the making of a movie on such a scale as Star Wars was unheard of. The lack of funding …

A classic in every sense of the word. Forgo the lame cash in Special Editions and try and watch the originals.

Why would anybody watch these movies on full screen rather than widescreen? There's a lot more image in the widescreen versions. If you don't have a widescreen TV, watch the widescreen version on your computer. Don't sacrifice your viewing experience. Also, the bonus disc is worth getting, which this set doesn't have.

If you didn't like all of the changes to the original trilogy in the 1997 "special editions," you'll be happy to know that some of them have been toned down for the release onto DVD. Unfortunately, Greedo shoots first and that stupid rock band is still in Jabba's palace. However, the shootout scene is reworked to make it a bit more plausible (well, a bit) and some of the other changes were simply removed (such as Luke's scream when he falls at the end of Empire). The Jabba the Hutt encounter in …

Looking forward to seeing these on blu-ray! With the special effects in the Star Wars saga, this should be a real treat.

If you buy this DVD set you will get both the original Star Wars movies and their re-mastered versions. Unfortunately, you will not get the special edition versions (that version has probably been incinerated) that were Lucas' first attempt at editing his magnum opus. Also, the original versions of the film have not been cleared up in any way. I don't mind that so much because I actually like watching a movie that has a movie feel to it (audiences today have been ruined by expecting perfection and …

In December of 2005, in conjunction with the release of "King Kong," Peter Jackson released a two-disc DVD set on nothing but the film's production. Over three and a half hours of behind the scenes footage was presented, chronicling everything from set design to special effects and everything in between. Packaged with the discs were four production art prints and a fifty-two page booklet, which contained many on- and off-set photos.    Wow. A two-disc set of production footage. …

This is a nice boxed set. It has a lot of nice extra features on one of the discs. The other three contain episodes four, five, and six of the "Star Wars" franchise. Sure, they've been tampered with by Lucas, but they are HIS movies. Gripe over it all you want, but at the end of the day you're going to buy this set because you want it, no matter what changes Lucas has made. I don't like all of the changes, but some of them are very good and add to the story. Other folks have cried about the "original" …

I have been waiting for this for years. Any self respecting movie fan knows these movies and how good they are. Our fan would know how much they have influence the movie industry and the fantasy/adventure genre in general. This fan would also know the advantages to having them on DVD. I won't go into the long description other reviews have. Needless to say, you HAVE to own this as part of a complete DVD collection. These films are timeless! Without this triology, Lord of the Rings might not have …
