    Is the classic Star Wars movie that the rest are rated against. Too bad they had to start in the middle.

    This is my favorite film of the original trilogy. I asked my dad if I could see this when I was five. Best decision I've ever made.

  • A review for the original

    The original in my opinion is the better one, both of them are five Star movies to me but why add a lot of stupid lines George!

    The Visuals: effects, colors, spaceships, planets, and costumes. The Characters: Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Darth Vader, Chewbacca, C-3PO, R2-D2, Obi Wan Kenobi, and the Stormtroopers The Music: legendary and epic score by John Williams Direction/Story: classic good vs evil and sci fi fantasy! You rock George Lucas!! I love all the Star Wars films and I’m so happy ITunes and Disney have these films available to own.

  • Star Wars 1977

    Hmm, So everyone seems to want the Star Wars 1977 v. Ok Since it is a question of money (all things are )here I doubt if anyone really wants to see the real mono version here that was not even in stereo back when it was a moive to be seen over and over again. I enjoy watching the old version everyday with my coffee but i'am also seeing how far the old version was flawed but nothing is ever perfect. Keep in mind The laser Disc, Videotape and DVD are it people as far as the 1977 cut. The masters were so bad and film aged to almost nothing. That was the reason to rescue it in the first palce 1997. Instead of just complaining about it put some money behind it and tell the past powers and present owners that made it. Tell them you want them to the 1977 cut on iTunes. Show the action and funds not just words. If the Man wants to release the thing again in differrent cut all of you would run out and see it. That is what is called a copyright . Until then this is the only Cut that itunes can give you. Deal with it. It is easy to complain and trash it but can any of you do any better? Put up or shut up. This Star Wars Cut is only one out here and it will be given 5 stars ..Thank you iTunes for being able to finally feature it here.

    By Lebron Kenney
    I was thinking this movie was some nerdy movie that I wouldn’t like but if liking Star Wars makes you a nerd then I’m the biggest nerd in the world. Sure the acting is bad and the writing isn’t always great but that doesn’t stop it from being one of the greatest movie ever.
