    Yeah...that's what I had heard, but upon viewing it, I discovered that all of that was rubbish. The Khan character was laughable.

    Would have been better back in the 60's during TOS original run

    actually there was considerable speculation that Montalban might get a Academy Award nomination for that role. Never happened of course but there was a fair amount of talk in those that speculate on that.

    Scarlett johansson is right in my book 'largely' due to her special talents
    Deadly is an accurate description

    Watched the original trilogy over the weekend. Sadly, I only had the 2004 DVD Special Editions on hand as I had loaned the 2006 DVD with the original theater versions to my mother. Seeing Hayden Christensen and his dumb expression at the end of Return almost ruined my weekend.

    Expressions aside, I like how George Lucas edited out Sebastian Shaw and superimposed Christensen in his place at the end. Anakin Skywalker was a true Jedi (despite his relationship with Padme) until his desperation allowed the Emperor to break him. It's like Obi-Wan Kenobi stated to Luke Skywalker:
    Technically, Anakin Skywalker redeemed himself by killing the Emperor. However, his actions returned him to whom he once was and not someone totally new in his final moments of life. Purists do not like the editing, but I prefer the young Anakin Force ghost over the old one.

    My biggest gripe is that Luke would have no idea what his young father looked like.

    which is why in the original he was aged. Amazing how many here miss the logic.

    Yoda and Obi Wan were shown as the age where they died. So why would not Anakin be the same?

    I should also note that I prefer the Ewok Celebration song as compared to what replaced it. (Full disclosure - I've owned Ewok Celebration on 45 since I was a kid)

    A Jedi would not be bound to sight alone. The Force would confirm for him who his father was. Luke did not know who his sister was, but his connection to the Force allowed him to know that it was Leia.

    I agree with that. Additionally, I do not agree with all the edits Lucas employed. For example, I thought the galactic celebration scenes (i.e. Coruscant, etc.) running in conjunction with the Ewok Celebration was too much. The battle was won on the Ewoks on Endor and the film's climatic celebration could have remained isolated to Endor only.

    I agree. He went overboard at times.

    I did like the desert, ice planet and then forest themes. 4, 5 and 6 movies respectively.
