Foul! Foul! I cry Foul!

Watched the DVD version of Return of the Jedi. Okay, I can deal with the added celebration scenes. But Anakin/Vader! When he's dead! Lucas changed him!

Pulled out the videotape for comparason...an old videotape released in 1992. And in it, Anakin is OLD! Not the young guy with flowing hair.

Grrrrumble.

And yes, I'm probably years behind in noticing this, but I steadfastly refused to watch the remastered versions on tape since I already had the original version.

Grr.

Indeed!

I know Lucas says no one should complain because it's his artistic vision... but really... it's like going back and putting eyebrows on the Mona Lisa or having Disney's Litter Mermaid die at the end. Wahhhhh.

I refuse to buy the screwy new versions.

Yeah, that was new for the DVD release. It wasn't in the "Special Edition" release. I've heard there were a few more changes (I understand there's a celebration scene in Naboo now along with all of the ones in the "Special Edition"), but that's the biggest one.

Lucas is an Editor first and foremost. He can't help tinkering.

JOhn.

The songs!

::facepalm::

I knew they weren't right, but I thought maybe it was because I'd not watched in so long.

But I have the 1991 VHS editions ::gloats:: so I'll go back and compare.
