    I am by no means a Star Wars expert but will be seeing the new movie next Monday. I have agreed to go see it with a friend who wants to make sure it is OK to take his son. I have seen the original 3 but have not seen the three that released later. I also have the original 3 on DVD but do not know if they are the version from theaters or not. Actually did not know new version were released. Looking forward to seeing the new one but would not be going if my friend had not asked.

    Having previously not heard of either of these I've got to say I agree on both.

    Well I am now home and have taken a look at the DVD set I have. They make no mention of the version of the films so I guess I have no clue which versions I have.

    Love my laserdiscs. I remember how proud I was when I purchase the massive Definitive Edition box set. Still find it really weird that the big book it came with didn't come with a dust cover.

    I've got that set, too! It was delivered by accident to a Sam Goody store in Hays, KS and the manager saved it for me to look at before sending it back. Ninety-nine well-spent dollars. I've also got the collector's edition of Hellraiser that includes Barker's shooting script.

    I don't think the original cuts where released on anything but Laserdisk / VHS. I think if you at least have a DVD it's probably at the very least one of the first two alterations post release done to the film. If you have DVD's released since the prequels, then you almost certainly have the special editions, and I think all of the Blu-Ray's are the special editions.

    For what it's worth, the later the version of the special edition you watch, the better it looks. Those early versions / CGI alterations looked like garbage, but they've worked on them and fixed a lot of the problems since then.

    It's just such a shame that it's nye impossible to watch the original cuts, or even the digitally remastered (but without the added footage) versions these days.

    My DVD set came out before the prequels were released. It has the three movies and a DVD of extras. I wonder if I can tell the version by the length of the movie?

    Well I think the first change made was the whole "Han Shot First" thing. So if yours doesn't have Greedo shooting then it's one of the edits. You can probably tell by the release date of that particular DVD though.

    Edit: Here's a wikipedia list of changes in the re-releases. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...rs_re-releases

    I think that page explains things "For the original trilogy's DVD release in 2004, the negatives were re-scanned and the color timing was redone, and further changes were made to the films to fix continuity errors with the prequel trilogy." My set is dated 2004 so it appears I have a "Special" edition.

    Ninety-nine dollars??!!?? Oh man. I paid $250 for mine brand new when it came out. I think the boxset of the first Special Edition release was about $100.

    I love the big box sets that Disney did. I own a few of them (missing four maybe?) Beautiful editions full of lots of cool extras. The Toy Story set might be the only place to find the original Snowman Snowglobe short before the adjusted the girl in the Snowglobe.

    That's probably the one I have. the Special Editions of the first three films. 9 Discs. no book, just a folded insert.

    I'll bust my set out and take some pictures. It's right behind me but it's too dark right now (and my Sleigh'r beer is hitting all the rights spots so no pics tonight.)

    You might have already seen it, but if you think The Nice Guys looks good, you should definitely check out Shane Black's criminally underrated Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Robert Downey Jr and Val Kilmer have never been better.

    Well I'll be seeing Star Wars in a little over 4 Hours. I've purposefully avoided all the reviews and everything that has come out since the premier on Monday. I can't wait to see this.

    Is this the set you mean, Brad? Got one as well - it used to be my pride and joy.
