    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.

    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.

  • Han. Shot.

    I was not raised with Star Wars like most people I've known. I watched Star Wars for the first time 2 years ago and I made the monumental mistake of watching them in chronological order. I should've listened to all of humanity when they told me to watch them putting the original trilogy first. I survived the prequels and delved into Star Wars (I am not calling it 'A New Hope') without a whole lot of anticipation and honestly it really didn't blow my mind. I really don't know what was wrong with me at the time. Star Wars has now not only turn into a film that I can 100% respect...but now I love this movie. It's one of my favorite movies ever made! The world that Lucas created is absolutely genius. There is hardly a thing I can criticize about this movie. A 10 out of 10 for sure! Most people say that Han shot first. This would imply that Greeto got a shot off. Han shot him in cold blood. Not to say that he didn't deserve it of course. I've never had the honor of seeing the original cuts. I really don't care if the effects are garbage just let me see my ball of cheese please!
  • Big budget B-movie

    By Omnithomas
    At the time Star Wars can be remembered for pulling off groundbreaking special effects. The story itself is for children. Tropes and cliches abound.
  • Where's Star Wars original?!!

    By Dimorian
    I have the best version of this movie, on LaserDisc. Why is LaserDisc the best? Because it is a cleaned up version of the theatrical release and not a messed up children's remake to satisfy parents who were likely not even born when the movie came out in 1977. Too bad my LaserDisc player is busted.. There's no movie to rate here, move along.
  • Boycott until they correct the travesty

    Enough said... wait, it's not enough. Boycott, boycott, stomach in a knot, if no original I say not.
