Barnes & Noble - Tony Nigro
No one can deny the power of Star Wars -- or the "Force," for that matter. The celebrated interstellar trilogy's effects on modern cinema and pop culture are endless, and almost 25 years have bred multiple generations of fans who can give precise directions to the Cloud City at the drop of a light saber. Finally, in fact ahead of promised schedule, George Lucas brings to DVD his original landmark films -- Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi -- digging deep into the Lucasfilm vaults for extras befitting a galaxy far, far away. This box set presents the trilogy in its "special edition" versions -- updated by Lucas with new material and more polished effects in the late '90s. Even if traditionalists balk at Lucas's updating and "re-directing" of the films, the fact remains that the films are no less landmark-worthy here. A nod to 1930s serials like Flash Gordon, the Star Wars Trilogy still offers true, stirring nostalgia and excitement, even if you find the added Jabba the Hutt scene disappointing, or think that the Wampa just plain looks weird. Fans can still thrill to Mark Hamill's turn as plucky Luke Skywalker, pilot-turned-mysterious Jedi, and the rest of the mainstay cast, including heartbreaker Harrison Ford and perfect-princess Carrie Fisher. Inspiration from Hollywood westerns, Eastern culture (a Jedi is a samurai and Yoda is Buddha!), and classical mythology cannot be digitally erased, maintaining the original Star Wars Trilogy's stance as the greatest sci-fi actioner of all time.
