I was born the year episode 4 came out in the cinema and really have grown up seeing starwars so many times over the years as have many others i would imagine. For me this is the ultimate all time sci fi epic and it is about to grow even more now that episodes 7,8 and 9 are gonna get made. I have always loved the starwars movies, yes all of them even the prequels have their own charms and when you see them as a 6 or 7 year old i know i was awe struck seeing 4,5 and 6 as a child on cinema. Overall these are some of my favourite sci fi movies of all time and if anywhere they definately deserve to be on blu ray and seen in their full glory.MUST BUY.

  The Perfect Collection

I will not be going into the merits of the Star Wars Saga as it really needs no introduction, instead I will just give my comments on the Blu-Ray experience. All 6 movies have outstanding quality, but where the Blu-ray quality really shines the most is in the prequel trilogy, mostly in Episode III. Don't get me wrong, the picture and sound is absolutely stunning in all the 6 movies! This fact coupled with the heaps of extras included, make this box set the ultimate Star Wars collection for any fan! If you're an avid Star Wars fan then look no further, this collection is a one in a lifetime buy!

  EECHA WAAWAA!

I'm really stunned, the picture and sound quality are excellent. I've never noticed it until now, the acting in the prequal trilogy is a tad wooden compared to the original trilogy. But they're all entirely stunning movie's that you should definately own on either format.

Ever since I saw Star Wars as it was called back in 1977 and not Episode IV: A New Hope as the fan boys would call it I was hooked. As a six year old the opening sequence the music the action and characters were almost too much to take in, but way back then nobody knew George Lucas would build a muti-billion dollar franchise and then milk it for all it was worth.
We waited so long for Lucas to put pen to paper was it worth the wait? erm.........
Episode I: The Phantom Menace.
Some how I don't think the taxation of trade routes is as gripping as a massive planet destroying space startion with a power mad messed up Sith. Terrible acting, allot of talking of whats happening, lots of CGI and the spawn of Satan Jar-Jar Binks! is this what we deserve? no but ever saga has to have a beginning and for all it's faults there is the amazing Darth Maul fight and the Pod Race, but the good points can't stop it from still being a crushing disappointment.
***
Episode II: Attack Of The Clones.
Lucas has to put it back on track right?Actually no for me he messes it up even more, cringe worthy lines, some of the most agonising acting, the horrible picture post card romance, for two thirds of the film it's a truly horrible experience, but then Lucas pulls out all the stops for a great action packed final third, but it's too little too late.
***
Episode III: Revenge Of the Sith.
Lucas had to put it back on track after his two previous efforts does he? actually ,yes he does! I'm not saying that this is a patch on the original trilogy but compared to Episodes I & II is a work of genius, the tacky lines are still there, but the acting is better and the sense of urgency is back leading to a jaw on the flaw final battle between Ben and Anakin gives all the fans what they have been wishing for and it delivers.... mostly!
****
Episode IV: A New Hope.
This is the Star Wars we all grew up on and love, the best entrance ever in motion history of a villain, the ships the aliens and of course Han, Luke, Leah and Chewie. for a film of this age it has not lost any of it's power to encheant and entertain, one of the most iconic films ever made.
Episode V: The Empire Strike Back.
Many say it's the best of the series, it's not, to say that is doing it an injustice, the fact is The Empir Strikes Back is ONE OF THE BEST FILMS EVER MADE! a much deeper film, more adult tone, better writter characters and a brilliant story and it even manages to be more fun than the first. Just a stone cold classic with the most jaw dropping reverlations in cinema history. five stars is not a bigger enough score.
*****
Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi.
It all built up to this, but there is a few bumps in the road to get there. The opening resue of Han in Jabba's palace is brilliant, and the death of Yoda and is conventiant reverlation is great, but it goes a bit wrong on Endor, yep you know what I am about to say. Why Ewoks how can a bunch of cute teddies take on the might of the EmpireLucas saw cash singns and thought of the money he would make out of Ewok lunch boxes, a cartoon series and two god aweful spin off movies, not what every one over ten years old wanted to see,we wanted Wookies to rip the Empire a new one, but to be honest I would rather spend an hour with those furry critters than ten seconds of Jar-Jar Binks!
****1/2
The extra are good, but it's a shame the DVD feature length documentaries are not included, but you know Lucas he'll probably save that for when he yet again recyles the series in a few years time, but for now it's expensive but just about worth the wait.
Looking back if Episodes I-III was released before IV-VI they probably would have been recieved with a warmer reaction.

I loved the original trilogy but never cared for the newer prequels but decided I would buy all the movies as one package, so I would have them all on blu ray.
The reasons why I was never impressed with the newer prequels was because I grew up with the original trilogy and looking at the prequels you could certainly tell these films were made long after the original trilogy like R2 flying and special effects etc. So it was always hard for me to see them as actual prequels. But I suppose that is the reason for the changes to the original trilogy, like the added city at the end of Return of the Jedi to try and link them to the prequels.
But in short I am kind of glad that I bought the whole lot of the films on blu ray as I have now watched them all several times, in order they are supposed to be. OK yes you can tell that these prequels are a lot newer and fancier effects, but now after watching all 6 films ion chronological order I would say it makes the originals something they weren't before. Even though the newer ones are quite obviously after the original trilogy I did feel the story was a continuation when I got to stare wars a new hope. I suppose I just feel they should have made the prequels look older and made them look like they were actually before the original trilogy but I suppose if they did that then they would not probably appeal so much to today's children/generation
My other gripes about the prequels are mostly some of the actors who were in the prequels, I totally disagree that Liam Neeson, Christopher Lee and Ewan McGregor should have ever been in s Star Wars film, I mean Ewan McGregor as Obi Wan Kenobi just doesn't seem right to me all these actors are great but I could never see any of those actors as the characters they played in Star wars so that made their characters unbelievable to me.
I love all these actors very much particularly Liam Neeson but I just do not think they suit being in a Star Wars film, even to this day, I also hate Hayden Christiansen mint he film as well, so it taken a lot of persuasion from a friend for me to buy the complete sage. Although I still feel the same about these actors in the films, I am still glad I bought them as it does link the story together and when you get to Star wars a new hope you feel like you know where Darth Vader comes from, whereas before he just appears as a mister bad @ss.
The newer prequels do link the story together in an enjoyable way so it is good to have them all for that reason alone.
Jar Jar Binks, well my opinion is pretty much the same as everyone else's. Yes a very annoying character and what makes him annoying is that Jar Jar Binks is supposed to be funny, but instead a failed character and is simply not funny at all, even the way they have him talking like "Mesa" , is a terrible idea and becomes particularly annoying after a while. Just over all a very bad character.

My opinions on the changes and newer added effects to the films...

I was at first but I am now not overly disappointed about all the changes and additions to the older films as I realise that some changes were to try and show that they were part of the the 3 newer prequels and I would say that it does actually help a bit, although the only change I will never really be happy about is the "Nooo! Noooo!" in return of the Jedi, I feel it really spoils a very emotional moment that it was actually stronger when Darth Vader said nothing as he watched the Emperor torture his son and finally thrown him over. The "no" and "noooo" just shouldn't be there as it just seemed more powerful before.
The picture and sound quality is just stunning and overall I am very pleased with this boxed set.Tons of features too.
