SPECIAL EDITION is essential! Why? Greedo shoots FIRST! And JABBA THE HUTT appears...along with BOBA FETT!

Though the new CGI additions are nothing short of horrible, the beauty of the original production still shines through. I have probably not sat down to watch Star Wars in its entirety since I was a child and was surprised at how well it truly holds up. The acting, story, and special effects all come together to make a movie that withstands the test of time. I only wish I could get the original version without the laughably bad CGI.

While the humor is a bit broader than I prefer, the effects a bit rusty and the dialogue rather cheesy, there is still no denying the sheer entertainment value of the whole thing. There is a real thrill to watching this first ever (as far as I know) combination of fantasy, western and science fiction–it’s easy to see how this single-handedly created a new film genre overnight.

Bubba_Louie, below, seems to have a case of the Mondays! I don't think Star Wars was meant to be great cinema - just a fun romp. That's how I take it, anyway. It's just good cheesy fun. Gotta love Darth Vader and Chewbacca and Han Solo and the lot of 'em. Episodes I, II and III, I can do without. Episodes IV, V and VI are just good clean fun. Cranky pants need not apply. :o)

If your nostalgic, starry-eyed, inner-child has deceived you, then, just remember this - Star Wars was not intended to be viewed as a religious experience, nor was it a metaphysical endeavor in any way, shape, or form._____ Star Wars is incredibly over-rated, badly acted and a prime example of horrible story-telling. Its weak, cliched plot only served to provide a thoroughly rotten structure for the basis of the entire Star Wars saga._____ Star Wars special effects aren't even as impressive as those of 2001: A Space Odyssey, a film which actually predates Star Wars by 10 years._____ And to make matters worse, Star Wars featured some really lousy characters, like a wimpy, pip-squeak hero - Luke Skywalker; and an annoying, ninny-of-a-robot - C-3PO._____ Yep. You better take off those rose-colored glasses, everyone, 'cause Star Wars' greatness is only a childhood illusion.
