I'm probably in the minority that thinks the prequel movies are good. Well, that is...
I should say that the story of the prequels are good...mostly. Yeah, there's a lot to complain about, but they aren't the adventurous spaghetti-space-westerns of the OT where everything had hit rock bottom, so things were only looking up. They're more like a Greek tragedy, death of an age, rise of evil, where everything goes wrong - to be appreciated with different expectations, I guess is what I'm trying to say. But yeah, dialogue is not Lucas' strong point...too bad Irvin Kershner wasn't available, or virtually ANYONE else allowed to give input for the human aspect of the PT. Anywho, this is a rambling tangent far different from this discussion.
I specifically asked for the PT on Blu-Ray for Christmas and was fairly disappointed that it didn't include the freaking bonus discs. You have to buy the full box-set, with the terrible aberrations in the OT, including, most annoyingly, Vader yelling
like a goon and Palpatine inexplicably not hearing him so that he might pause to think "hey, Vader seems kinda pissed that I'm electrocuting his boy. I hope he doesn't throw me down this hole. Maybe I should do something abou...aaaAAAhhhhh!!!" at 90 clams to get those bonus discs? I would think they would be happy enough that someone might want to possess, let alone buy the PT that they would give away the special features for those films as a bonus for one's extreme bit of charity.
Plus I already had the DVD box set versions of the original trilogy, sans most
of the ridiculous retro-haul (I don't mind any of the special edition additions EXCEPT Greedo shooting first and Han "sliding" aside.) Oh well.
And the 3-D releases in the theater are just another excuse to see them again on a huge screen with a great sound system. Probably won't get too many opportunities to see it on the big screen again...unless you own your own theater, in which case, why are you spending your time in a forum rather than doing rich people stuff? Like, eating Fabergé eggs, or whatever it is rich people do.
The experience is worth the price of admission to me, though I have no desire to own the 3-D versions of any of the films nor do I expect to at any time in the foreseeable future.
