I thought that scene looked a bit choppy. Should have known the editor cut it.

what i find amazing is how deeply the star wars universe has become...i mean the different kinds of jedi stances and training and such, very interesting but maybe too in depth?

It goes much farther than that. There are different styles of Lightsaber fencing, few have mastered them all. One Jedi, who mastered them all leter started his own style...sound familiar? Oh, he was Mace Windu. See some on it at this Lightsaber Combat Page.

I'm a huge huge Star Wars fan, big as can be. I won't be buying these DVD's though. Take a look on amazon.com. Apparently they're crap. They used a really cheap method of transfering them to DVD and used 2.1 surround.
I'll stick with DVD Box set, my 25th Anniversary VHS Box Set, and my original copied from video store tapes box set.
And NEXT September I will have my Six movie box set that will have even more scenes.

The local Boys and Girls Club is offering a Star Wars themed introduction to fencing class called "Light-sabre fencing" or something for young-uns age 4 and up. Their poster managed to raise my eyebrow on my way out of the gym.

Eric, that was rather the point, these releases are how the films were shown when they first came out, no enhanced sound, no added CGI, or any of that, just the films as they were when they changed the face of cinema.

My copies arrived, and I wayched them all back to back yesterday. Absolutely magic i will never watch the updated versions again.

I know that Cord, but apparently, there was SOMETHING wrong because tons of people on the internet who were going crazy waiting for these are royally [censored] off.
Check out Amazon.com and imdb.com and you'll see what I mean.

I don't know, I never really read into what the fuss was about, I just know there was a BIG one.
I was just passing along the information.
Like I said, I would get these, but I already have the original VHS tapes, and a working VCR, and if I want, I can always copy them to dvd.

I wasn't having a go at you Eric, there are plenty of Star Wars fans out there who find no end of things to argue about. Is Chewbacca a male or female wookie? which is more irritating- ewoks or Jar Jar Binks? What exactly does go into Banther fodder? Should Mace Windu have been allowed to have a purple light sabre. The list goes on.

one of the big schisms has always been between the 'original' version trilogy fans, and the 're-mastered & updated' trilogy fans.

Those who prefer the updated versions point out that the changes and upgrades allowed Lucas to finaly show the story how he always wanted it to be.Fair enough.
The critics point out that the CGI has not integrated well and has altered the feel of the movies, that the change to the music in Jabba's bar, and the ewok victory party were unecessary and inferior, that the upgraded sound is only an improvement if you happen to have surround sound, and that the extra scenes spliced in here and there damage the pacing of the movies and smell of backtracking for continuity in relation to the newer episodes 1-3.

All fans, I think, will agree to being a little tired with all the repackaging, special editions and re-issues that are springing up left and right, and smell the stink of a 'cash cow' being over milked.

I have the updates on VHS box set from there initial release. i never bought the DVD's of them as frankly, I didnt like em too much. i knew that others felt the same and that it would be only a matter of time till the 'theatrical' versions came up for DVD release, and here they are, and they are great.

Next up will be the episode I-VI all extras, all version super duper blu ray box set next christmas. Best we all start saving now
