In search of the originals
Follow-up to my last post:
I got to thinking..
"If I like the original Star Wars releases better than the new ones.. why don't I just go grab the VHS editions from eBay?"
So that's what I'm doing. (grin) I saw a couple of 1995 releases which is just before the first re-release occurred. A few of them were only viewed a handful of times. Some are still in the shrinkwrap(!)
Should be good. My Christmas (or New Year's at this point) gift to me. (grin)
Found it. Got the original widescreen THX releases from 1995, the "pre-special" original theater versions. Was fortunate enough to find all three in one eBay listing. Price after shipping: 20 bucks. I think it's a good deal, especially considering the fact I was only able to find ONE original pre-1997 widescreen trilogy set.. one would think more would be available? Guess not.
I am hoping I will get the version with the original artwork.. but I don't think I will. I'm reasonably sure that I will get the 3rd release of seven, not including the LaserDisc release.
Yep. Seven. I said in my last post there were three. There are actually five VHS releases (unless I've missed one) and two DVD releases:
1. Original release.
2. THX Remastered release
3. THX Remastered widescreen release
4. Special Edition "Gold"
5. Special Edition "Silver" Widescreen
6. DVD (current) release
7. DVD (current) release Widescreen
I think that's all of them unless I'm mistaken. (grin)
