Review
I'm glad that all of the six movies of STAR WARS is on Blu-ray, but I'm not quite happy with some of the changes that has happened to the two films of the classic trilogy such as the heroic sacrifice of one of the main characters and the scene where R2-D2 is hiding from the Tusken Raiders. If only the franchise's creator George Lucas would stop making those awful things and start doing improvements that are appropriate for the Star Wars fans.

THE COMPLETE SAGA Blu-ray manages to bring its beautiful quality and better colour as well as a slew of extras which includes documentaries and deleted scenes.

Star rating: (5/5) Best Movie Set Ever

  1. I wish Lucus would just make Blu-Ray versions of the theatical cut. It would sell a ton! The only change major that I am OK is more of the Wampa in Empire Strikes Back. But I did like the CGI Yoda in Ep. 1 better the puppet.
