Star Wars BluRay at Amazon for $79.99 (Episodes 1-6), but should you buy?
The menfolk in my house are Star Wars fans in a huge way. Anytime one of the six episodes airs on TV, they have to watch it. So when I heard about the new release of Star Wars on BluRay, I asked my husband if it would be something he'd want (you know, thinking ahead to Christmas). The answer was, "Noooooooooooo!"
Why such a long, drawn out no? I checked the reviews at Amazon and the fans are unhappy with the tweaks done by George Lucas. Many of them echoed the same issues that my husband cited as the reason he was begging me not to buy it (yes, I said begged not to buy). Fans want their Star Wars to be pure and unadulterated. I'm not saying you can't enhance a video, but adding extra elements into the storyline in past issues does tend to pollute the future time line and change the movie saga completely. In case you still want to buy, a link is below so you can read the reviews yourself.
