Out of the Blue

Today, of course, is the day the first Star Wars Trilogy comes out on DVD. As has been endlessly hashed out, these are not exactly the original versions of the original movies, but as the release has neared, I have gotten excited about all this, and less worried about such issues. A bit more worrisome are the audio issues noted on The Digital Bits mentioned in the forums here yesterday, but the latest response they've gotten from LucasArts indicates that the flopped rear surround channel dealie is supposedly intentional, so we'll have to see how that plays out. May the force be with us!

are actually better than the sparkling new DVD's costing sevety bucks that people have been waiting on pins and needles for?

not even close. they digitally remastered the DVD's, and upgraded the sound to 5.1 DD EX. the picture is immediately noticably superior to the VHS editions, and i mean it is a huge difference. the sound too is noticably vastly improved, and it's nice to finally hear these films in true 5.1 surround. some people complain about the tinkering lucas has done, but many of the fixes in the new set are a relief, such as fixing saber effects. he even somewhat "fixed" the cantia shoot-out scene, by making the shots near simultaneous... still not as cool as in the original, but not as lame as in the special editions either.

also, i paid $42 for mine, not $70 as you claim. and in my book, $42 is well worth the price of three classic films, plus a disc full of extras including a brand new 2 hour documentary. most new DVD's sell for $20 for a single film.
