I was flipping channels and saw that Star Wars is on TBS. Watching for a bit, it turns out it's the stupid "Special Edition". Stupid Lucas. The scene with Jabba was almost worse than Jar Jar.

I think the Special Edition would have been totally acceptible if it wasn't for that one change.

Han Solo fired first! (Lucas is a PC moron to change this :| )

I'm hanging on to my Star Wars THX laserdisc until there's a (non-HK) DVD that gets this right.

ET. That's how it was in the re-release. The DVD is expected to have both versions.

I read an article where he did mention something about doing more updates to the original trilogy.

Also I don't see the originals as untouchable either, they are George's movies after all.

Most/several of the scenes in the Special Edition are actual scenes shot with the original actors...including the part with Jabba and that Greedo shot first.

I think it's really cool to see it.
