I haven’t done a DVD update in a while (mostly because I’m poor and I can’t afford gas, much less Season Two of kick butt cartoon tv shows), but here’s one that I’ve been curious about — the second release of the Star Wars trilogy on DVD.
I happened to be meandering through the evil empire of Wal-Mart on Saturday, and I saw the Star Wars display. Interestingly enough, it was completely full. There was maybe 3 copies sold from then entire box sitting up there. Now, I knew the re-release wouldn’t sell too well, but I wasn’t expecting that. I’m curious what people’s take is on it, though. If they are going to buy them or they’re not, either way, for what reason?
Myself, I’ll definately be getting a copy as soon as I can afford it, and for one simple reason: I don’t like the special edition remakes at all. I’m not a Star Wars purist by any stretch of the imagination, but I think all those special “additions” were just plain really dumb, and I’d rather see the movie as I originally saw it years ago. That’s it for me. I don’t know how they are justifying the $20 a DVD though.
