The Star Wars Savings Plan

Well, thanks, Mr. Lucas, for costing your empire $100 from my pocket. I've been cautiously optimistic about the upcoming Blu-Ray release of the Star Wars saga but knew it was too much to hope that Lucas wouldn't mess things up in the original trilogy, AGAIN. A few of the effect tweaks aren't horrendous but he's gone in and changed some of the audio in ways that are just dumb.

How dumb? Let's just say that this clip:

is actually preferable to the changes he made to the film. If nothing else, it's funny! I can only assume that Lucas is the ultimate troll with the way he refuses to release a proper, untampered version of the original 3 movies. That, or he requires internet rage and nerd tears to sustain him.

But yeah, that's $100 I won't be spending this fall. The better to buy more videogames, er, save for the future...
