    Now that I think about it.. Yea Hayden’s ghost makes no sense, He wouldn’t appear as his younger self

    For me it was all downhill once the Ewoks became involved. Not quite - some resurrection with the films including Rey. But (best) Empire Strikes Back and (second best) A New Hope were outstanding sci-fi in their time. A fast-paced, alter-universe, that took an audience who only had 2001 for reference, by storm. 2001 was the grandeur of space. Star Wars personalised science fiction. That is its true mark of greatness. We became emotionally involved.

    The very worse thing they did was add that horrible Jabba scene with Han in New Hope! The CGI looked terrible, the dialogue did not make sense and it was genuinely terrible. Jabba is perfect just he was as a big puppet!

    What if the eyebrows grew back? What if Vader had fake ones put on to make him look more human? Wouldn't it be funny if he kept changing the movies so much that it became a different movie?

    Lucas is such a genius. We are all blessed to have his universe to fantasize about and talk about. That being said, I feel for him as a procrastinator. Instead of focusing all his energy on new stories and films, he kept going back to change old films. Who can judge him though; the man has created some of our cultural mythology. Star Wars and Indiana Jones alone changed movies and lives.

    Definitely agree. In terms of my rankings of the saga, TPM, AotC are in two of my bottom three favorite SW movies. I like TPM better overall in terms of story and visuals more-so than AotC (though I love the "death sticks" scene, always gets a chuckle out of me.)

    Actually, it was not a movie change - it is just a pointless Star Wars movie - The Last Jedi.

  • Mark Kroberger

    Actually, if you've seen the 'original 1977' version, it wasn't "who shot first", but rather "Han shot only", as Han Solo's character was just a low life smuggler who worked for Jabba The Hutt, and thereby wasn't a 'hero' character in the beginning. So having Han shoot Greedo from under the table, even though it seem a low life scum move, wasn't plotted out to be anything 'beyond' A New Hope, and at the time, there wasn't much backstory to Han and what he did for Jabba. Think about it- that Cantina had various criminals and villains, or as Obi-Wan described Mos Eisley itself, as a 'retched hive of scum and villainy", so Han was- at the time- just another scum villain who did anything to stay alive and make his cut for Jabba.

    "Bring my shuttle"-vader That was one of my favorite scenes that they changed. Vader was straight forward, not chatty. He was frustrated and angry because he failed to capture luke. An angry quick line was PERFECT for that scene. "Alert my star destroyer to prepare for my arrival." Was a POINTLESS, out of character line.

    Jabba's convo with disguised Leia was subtitled at least as far back as the TV release in the late 80s/early 90s. Source: I had it taped from tv on vhs and probably watched it a hundred times growing up and it's the reason I've always known "wonky" means "mighty" in hutteese. Also the subtitles are there to show the viewer what C3P0 is choosing to translate and what he is tactfully choosing to alter to maintain diplomacy. It's actually kind of cool.

    1. Eyebrows removal isn't a pointless change. The change is worth the effort since it fixes continuity issues with Vader having his brows burnt. Everything you said about this change is just a reason for you to unnecessarily include it in your list. 2. No need to complain about some extra CGI creatures / scenes and calling them ridiculous. They were at least a helpful addition to make the alien planets need to feel alien-like with alien creatures. 3. You actually were aware that some extra scenes are there for slowing the pacing, so why didn't you think of the exact same reason when you were complaining about the added shots of the Stormtroopers on Tatooine and generally some changes like that, "noted by their sheer ridiculousness", on the earlier parts of your video? 4. Why would you complain about some of the practical effects being changed to CGI when they do it for the better? Does that mean that you would complain about them turning Yoda into CGI and would prefer Dooku and Sidious fighting a puppet that would make it as ridiculous as your description of some of the scenes?
