Though the new CGI additions are nothing short of horrible, the beauty of the original production still shines through. I have probably not sat down to watch Star Wars in its entirety since I was a child and was surprised at how well it truly holds up. The acting, story, and special effects all come together to make a movie that withstands the test of time. I only wish I could get the original version without the laughably bad CGI.

While the humor is a bit broader than I prefer, the effects a bit rusty and the dialogue rather cheesy, there is still no denying the sheer entertainment value of the whole thing. There is a real thrill to watching this first ever (as far as I know) combination of fantasy, western and science fiction–it’s easy to see how this single-handedly created a new film genre overnight.

Bubba_Louie, below, seems to have a case of the Mondays! I don't think Star Wars was meant to be great cinema - just a fun romp. That's how I take it, anyway. It's just good cheesy fun. Gotta love Darth Vader and Chewbacca and Han Solo and the lot of 'em. Episodes I, II and III, I can do without. Episodes IV, V and VI are just good clean fun. Cranky pants need not apply. :o)

If your nostalgic, starry-eyed, inner-child has deceived you, then, just remember this - Star Wars was not intended to be viewed as a religious experience, nor was it a metaphysical endeavor in any way, shape, or form._____ Star Wars is incredibly over-rated, badly acted and a prime example of horrible story-telling. Its weak, cliched plot only served to provide a thoroughly rotten structure for the basis of the entire Star Wars saga._____ Star Wars special effects aren't even as impressive as those of 2001: A Space Odyssey, a film which actually predates Star Wars by 10 years._____ And to make matters worse, Star Wars featured some really lousy characters, like a wimpy, pip-squeak hero - Luke Skywalker; and an annoying, ninny-of-a-robot - C-3PO._____ Yep. You better take off those rose-colored glasses, everyone, 'cause Star Wars' greatness is only a childhood illusion.
