|04.08.17||Internet|| Thus concludes our rewatch of the first two Star Wars trilogies. Like a broken record, I really appreciated these Despecialized editions and seeing the (closest available to) original theatrical cuts of the original trilogy. I still remember how bummed I was in the late 90s when they cut the ewok jub jub celebration song at the ending, not to mention messing up the Sarlacc and all the other nonsense that they put into those special editions.|
I liked this one a lot too. I feel like ILM really had a handle on the space battles by now and the Tatooine stuff in this movie still stands as some of my favorite of all the films. I never loved the emporer but i have to say I like him less now that the prequels exist. Why they went with some obscene butthead make-up over this original white aging is beyond me. At least he looks interesting here... or at least not painful to look at.
But enough with the dead horse beating. It was good to see this again. I'll probably give Rogue One and Force Awakens another view before December but for the purposes of this journey... We finished the game today and our re-watch is complete.
