Greg did an awesome job summing up why the special eds are bad but let me make two more points.  

The first point was actually made by Lucas himself.  George hated colorized versions of films.  Back in the day (before insanity struck) he once said that fans deserve to be able to see the version of the films they saw and loved in theaters.  Yes, I saw the original trilogy in theaters and what the hell happened to THAT George Lucas?  

Point the second.  Imagine that Paul McCartney went and caught Lucas crazy.  He dubs in Slipknot samples to all the Beatles catalog and from today onward says this was the true artistic vision of the Beatles and no one can ever buy the original songs again.  I think you can see the problem.

EDIT:  Best Star Wars meddling related tweet ever from Paul Sheer:  "If George Lucas continues to change Star Wars at this rate, in the year 2028 it will just become Spaceballs."

EDIT of the EDIT:  If you don't understand Paul's comment realize that since the first special ed came out in 1997 each successive release of the films has been different.  The 2004 DVD release was different than the “original Special Edition” and the blu ray release is even different from that.  And some of the changes make NO SENSE.  Blu Ray Ob-Wan Kenobi now has a placeholder sound clip from one of the ILM guys shouting in the studio parking lot instead of the Krayt dragon call he used to scare the Sandpeople in episode IV.  Remember the crazy over the top NOOO from Vader at the end of Episode III?  Hope you enjoyed it because you’ll now hear it again in Episode VI when he finally flips his shit and offs the Emperor.  Selbulba from Episode I was freaking awesome and you can’t get enough of seeing him right?  Right!  That’s why he’s now inserted into Jabba’s palace, not quietly in the background, nope he’s walking down the stairs in the establishing shot of the room, making him the new focal point of the scene.  And the thing is, I honestly would not give one flying f#|< about ANY of this if the original version was also made available (like has been done for other films with alternate versions like Blade Runner and LoTR).  I could shake my head and laugh at the kids and their crazy CGI shenanigans while I watch my old matte shots and puppet movie.  But nope, George doesn’t roll like that in fact he recently told fans who asked him about whether or not he had plans to release the originals again to “Grow up, they’re my movies not yours.”  I can’t and won’t deny that George  is a shrewd businessman.  He’s made fortunes off the marketing of the franchise and changed the way the movie and toy industry work together forever.  But he’s also a hypocritical dick who preaches about the preservation of films (he helped found the National Film Registry) but then tries to replace the Library of Congress’ archived copy of Empire with the 97 special ed version.  And the Empire print is only 35mm, not the original 70mm.  In fact he’s blocked the library from obtaining prints of the other films entirely.  Words really fail me in trying to describe how he’s not only disrespecting the fans that made him his fortune but also the film heritage of future generations.  


Return of the Son of the EDIT:  Yea, I got my rant on when I really was trying not to.  You should have seen this BEFORE I trimmed it.

Okay, okay, seriously one more EDIT and I’m done beating this dead horse… for now… <.<  >.>:  George Lucas circa 1988 speaking out about the importance of preserving films as originally filmed and the impending danger of power mad producers ruining beloved films beyond all repair.  Seriously, what happened to THIS George Lucas?   http://savestarwars.com/lucasspeechagainstspecialedition.html

The Harmy REALLY deserves a farking medal EDIT for Greg:  Weird blastwave/halo effect removed from planet explosions.  Life is nigh perfect.  You know what I'm talking 'bout.

If you don't mind the presentation style, Red Letter Media has a great takedown of how off-the-rails-of-sanity Lucas became with his episode 1-2-3 films. The RLM shows are fairly long to watch, but I highly recommend them as a good dissection of storytelling dos and don'ts. They address not only the story-writing, but also touch on how the movies were filmed, getting into the shots-on-set vs. shots-on-green-screen that Lucas wound up turning things into.

Also, they're fucking hilarious.

AP: Guinness.

APII: The Easter I just had. Drive home, eat ham, watch game of thrones, drink beer, go see old friends, drink more beer, drink tequila, drunk in public, nobody cares, only three on the street, free gas station hot dogs, smoke cigars with the gas station guy, go back, drink more, watch Archer, pass out.

Fuck yeah.

APIII: I was approached yesterday by my old english teacher (My best friend's mom), and she told me that she's to be the editor or something similar for a collection of short stories, and she'd like me to write something up for it. Yaaaaay published author.

It was a long day yesterday starting at about 3:30 am with my girlfriend frantically waking me up with blood pouring over her face. Turns out she less than occasionally gets nosebleeds and this one was brutal. Dear god...

AP: Working on awesome D&D stuff. I'm DMing a game for friends at University and we just had our end of the year 8 or so hour session since exams are like tomorrow and we all live very far away in the summer. It was really good, they've all told me that they loved the session and want to keep playing next year.

AP: At 2100 I put a pizza in the oven, setting an alarm for 2115. I changed the time but forgot to enable it, so obviously when the time came nothing happened. 2138, I remembered my pizza and raced downstairs expecting a smoking lump of charcoal. Instead, despite being in there twice as long as it should have been, I found a perfectly cooked, golden brown pizza. I like mine well done, but even so that was fecking lucky.

Kinda reminds me of when the sky was clear and the most beautiful shade of light blue, or a clear, cloudless, starless night. That was an amazing purple sky.
