who are true star wars fans?

I have been reading alot about the upcomming star wars saga box set and fans have been talking about the changes. Some say they are Lucus's films and he can do what he wants with them ! Some say the Unaltered trilogy and SE are the same films. why do fans hate the unalterd version and like the SE ?

The theatrical versions are the ones fans grew up with and if it was not for them there whould be no star wars. These people call them selves true fans who dont except the Theatrical versions .

I for one whould love to see the Original Version in HD but it will never happen

True Star Wars fans are anyone who likes Star Wars in any forms.


I've never heard of someone someone liking the SE and not the original, just the other way around, but I can tell you why people'd prefer either- people like the SE because it's prettier, and a few deleted scenes. People like the unaltered because some of the deleted scenes mess with the excellent pacing, some of the alterations affect the characters a bit (Han 'criminal smuggler' Solo waiting until the guy there to kill him shoots first?), and some of the added effects are cheesy (like the circular ring of the death star boom, which doesn't make sense in any space-based explosion).

There are fans who have taken more ownership of Star Wars than they are entitled to; they are George Lucas' films, and he can re-work them to suit his vision all he wants. But that's probably the consequence of creating a phenomenon that is no so much a film series as it is a religion - and religions harbour fanatic fundamentalists.

It starts with 'Lucas bashing' websites, and one day escalates to suicide bombers at the Blu-ray/DVD launches, yelling out "Only the OT is great! Death to the SE's and the PT's!" stick out tongue

This is ridiculously narrow-minded and ignorant. People who prefer the SE's aren't true Star Wars fans? That's just stupid.

What i am trying to say is these people over at bluray.com take SW too far

http://forum.blu-ray.com/blu-ray-mo...2011-a-838.html

Some have been suspended or accounts terminated for good becouse the films are not out yet and the tread has gone over 800 pages!!

Of course it is. True fans CARE, so if they are disappointed it shows they care.

If they don't give a hoot, then you might question their fanship. But then again, it's not a club that has membership rules.

That's obviously true. But no matter what changes Lucas makes, whether it actually enhance the movie or not, fans will hate it because he changed it.

Of course true fans care.

I think the main reason they hate it is maybe not because Lucas changes it, but also states that that is the one he wants everyone to see. He doesn't allow access anymore to the originals.

And that I think is quite pedantic of George. Heck, I just bought Once Upon a Time in the West on BD... and it has both the theatrical as well as the restored version. While the restored version is what it was always meant to be and is a better movie.

The Apocalypse Now BD box has both versions, the Alien Anthology Box has all versions... I don't understand why George is being so weird about people seeing these 'terrible terrible unvisionary' original versions that changed movie history. Coz in the end, allwe get is his latest go at his movies, and since the PT and KOTCS we all know he's not really up to scratch.

That's not entirely true. In my area, at least, they released the original theatric versions o DVD a couple years ago. But I do get what you're saying, it's almost like he's embarrassed of them, which makes no sense. He's always trying to make them [i]better[/], which is ludicrous because they gained their legendary status from what they were when they came out, not from what he changed them into.

Indeed, he doesn't seem to realise that.

He released the OT on DVD in a very poor quality. Like they had some video master they dumped on DVD.
In comparison with the other DVD boxes I mentioned, there the originals are delivered in great quality. That's what makes it fun, to see what it originally looked like.

With films like the Godfather, 2001 and Apocalypse Now, in Blu-Ray you get to see these films in a quality that only the director has ever seen. Even the theatrical releases at the time had already lost quality due to copying. I'd really like to see what SW looked like as George saw it in the 70s. But with all his tampering with the colour grading he has ruined its original look and deprived us of seeing the movie that changed movie history.

Yeah, that's the version I'm referring to that was released in my area. They did nothing to it, just released it on DVD.

Now that seems like something only imagined...the OT on Blu-Ray...I would pay much money to see the OT as, how you put it, George saw it in the 70s.

Does he not realse the money he could make off of those?
