[COLOR=DarkRed]Amazon.co.uk Review[/COLOR]
George Lucas's original Star Wars trilogy is a clever synthesis of pop-cultural and mythological references, taking classic fairy-tale themes, adding more than a dash of Arthurian legend, and providing cinematic high adventure inspired as much by Kurosawa's Samurai epics as by Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers. As a result, audiences of all ages can find something to identify with in Luke Skywalker's journey from disaffected teenager dreaming of adventure to Jedi Knight and saviour of the galaxy. He not only rescues a Princess, but discovers she's a close relative. And if there's a lesson to be gleaned from the Skywalker clan, it's that no matter how bad things get in the average dysfunctional family, it's never too late for reconciliation.
Originally released in 1977, Star Wars, the first film, was made as a standalone. Perhaps that's why Obi-Wan Kenobi seems a tad inconsistent in his attitude towards his old pupil Anakin Skywalker, and perhaps also why Luke is allowed to develop a guilt-free crush on Princess Leia. Lucas's story, told from the point of view of the two bickering droids (a device taken from Kurosawa's Hidden Fortress), also borrows freely from Errol Flynn's Robin Hood, as does John Williams's seminal Korngold-inspired music score.
Thanks in equal part to Leigh Brackett's screenplay and Irvin Kershner's direction The Empire Strikes Back (1980) is the most grown-up instalment in the series. The basic fairy-tale is developed and expanded, with the principal characters experiencing emotional turmoil--blossoming romance, mixed feelings and confused loyalties--amid a very real threat of annihilation as Darth Vader's motivations become chillingly personal. Luke's quasi-Arthurian destiny is complicated still further by the half-truths of his wizardly mentors; and swashbuckler Han Solo finds the past catching up with him, quite literally in the form of bounty hunter Boba Fett. The film is graced by more fabulous landscapes (ice, forest, clouds), more unforgettable new characters (Yoda), more groundbreaking special effects (the asteroid chase), and John Williams's finest score.
The difficult third film, 1983's Return of the Jedi, seems schizophrenic in its intentions, hoping to please both the kiddies who bought all the toys and an older audience who appreciated the narrative's epic and mythological strands. The result is a film that splits awkwardly into two. One thread, which might be subtitled "The Redemption of Anakin Skywalker", pursues the story of the Skywalker family to a cathartic conclusion. The other thread, which might be described as "The Care Bears Go to War", attempts to say something profound about primitivism versus technological sophistication, but just gets silly as furry midgets doing Tarzan whoops defeat the Emperor's crack legions.
In 1997 Lucas re-released the three original films in digitally remastered "Special Edition" versions, in which many scenes have been restored and enhanced (some would say "unnecessarily tinkered with"). Despite loud and continued criticisms from fans, these Special Editions are now considered definitive, if only by Lucasfilm. --Mark Walker

Got it for cheaper a few months ago on Amazon, but this is still a good price. The transfer of the films is brilliant.
#3
fiver for each film - can't be bad for these timeless classics
#4
so are these the original versions of the trilogy or the cgi infested rubbish??

cgi infested rubbish with the stupid music bit at jabbas palace in return fo the jedi

what im gunna do when i get some money is buy the 2 disc sep film versions but keep the boxset as its nice and sell the ****** 1997 versions - im all for making a film look better but when you start changing and replacing parts it just kills it
#7
100% agree, recently got ET for the kids and it just wasn't the same movie :(
I have this box set but would love to have the originals but it seems hard to justify repurchasing movies that i already have.
#8
aye worst bit for me was when they changed the ending of return so you didn't have the ewok song at the end
#9
This is a good deal nevertheless. I got the box with just the 3 movies about a year ago for 18 I think.
#10
This was a tenner in Argos over a year ago. A misprice I believe.
#11
alright enough price, but I'm getting the originals ...
#12
Just remember the "original" releases (not the box set) contain non-anamorphic transfers of the movies - so they are not true widescreen.

tbh i wouldnt buy this boxset -- as you can get the one with the original film on it not the rubbish ones with the cgi that ruined it e.g jabba in the new hope

Star was 4 +5+6

you can also do the 2 for £12 offer so the trilogy will set you back £19...


These were only £5.99 at HMV a couple of weeks ago - I only bought the first one (I don't care what George says - it's not episode 4) - funny that, they go up a quid so it looks like you are saving if you buy 2 for £12 - when it actually costs you 2p more.

Edit - These versions contain both the original (though the stormtrooper banging his head seems to be missing) and the CGI'd version. I think one disc will be going to Grandad's

It's all very well people moaning and saying they're going to buy the seperate disks, but you'll still have to buy this if you want the bonus disk :p
#15
Bought... even though it is the nerfed version, however i did want the bonus disc. We have all seen the movies a bazillion times, but making-of footage has been rare. the only thing that makes me cry is they made Greedo shoot first...you ********!

Even the official starwars website has the revisionist version -

http://www.starwars.com/databank/character/greedo/index.html

"Greedo was an overzealous bounty hunter hired by Jabba the Hutt to collect on Han Solo. Greedo challenged Solo in the Mos Eisley Cantina. At blaster point, the Rodian demanded Solo pay his debt to Jabba. Solo claimed he didn't have the money with him. Greedo had lost his patience, and opened fire. His shot missed; it was the last mistake Greedo would make. Solo opened fire with his powerful blaster pistol, ripping through the cantina table and the Rodian's chest."

I thought it was a "tie" now. Or did they change it when I wasn't looking? :P

i know it ruined E.T for me - i know you can get the original in some special edition but frankly i dont have the money to buy the same film like 3 times

That's why Lucas is rumoured to be worth $3 billion.

Everyone buys his box sets about 3 times.
