Is it just me…

… or does George Lucas remind you of that guy who never finishes the book he’s working on because he wants to make just one more rewrite?

I know, I know, it’s been about three months since my last entry. I can tell you’re all really devestated by the lack of updates from the land of Josh (I can hear you sniggering in the back… humor me, okay?)

This whole Star Wars DVD thing, where there are even more changes made — these aren’t just the special editions from a few years back, these are DVD editions! For God’s sake, George, can’t you leave well enough alone? Do we really need to see the gungans celebrating at the end of Return of the Jedi? Do we really need to see Hayden Christensen in that final scene with Yoda, Ben Kenobi, and Annakin Skywalker?

Do you believe your audience to be so unimaginative that they can’t understand (and accept) the differences between the first trilogy and the second?

Not to say I’m not going to buy it… but if I could have just one wish in regards to this, it would be to have the originals available on DVD as well, sans special enhancements, added scenes, etc. etc.I’m getting a certain sense of lost cinematic history, here.

It may be time to buy some software to make a digital copy of the original VHS trilogy. Some things must be preserved.
