Synopsis


The Empire Strikes Back
The second entry in George Lucas' Star Wars trilogy finds Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), the green-as-grass hero from the first film, now a seasoned space warrior. Luke's Star Wars cohorts Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) are likewise more experienced in the ways and means of battling the insidious Empire, as represented by the brooding Darth Vader (body of David Prowse, voice of James Earl Jones). And, of course, "The Force," personified by the ghost of Luke's mentor Ben Kenobi (Alec Guinness), is with them all. Retreating from Vader's minions, Luke ends up, at first, on the Ice Planet Hoth, and then the tropical Dagobah. Here he makes the acquaintance of the gnomish Yoda (voice of Frank Oz), whose all-encompassing wisdom comes in handy during the serial-like perils of the rest of the film. Before the film's open-ended climax, we are introduced to the apparently duplicitous Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) and are let in on a secret that profoundly affects both Luke and his arch-enemy, Vader. Many viewers consider this award-winning film the best of the Star Wars movies, and its special-effects bonanza was pure gold at the box office. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Return of the Jedi
In the final episode of the Star Wars saga, Han Solo (Harrison Ford) emerges intact from the carbonite casing in which he'd been sealed in The Empire Strikes Back. The bad news is that Solo, together with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), is prisoner to the grotesque Jabba the Hutt. But with the help of the charismatic Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams), our heroes and our heroine manage to escape. The next task is to rid the galaxy of Darth Vader (body by David Prowse, voice by James Earl Jones) and the Emperor (Ian McDiarmid), now in command of a new, under-construction Death Star. On the forest moon Endor, the good guys enlist the help of a feisty bunch of bear-like creatures called the Ewoks in their battle against the Empire. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Star Wars
George Lucas' mythological popcorn movie is a two-hour roller-coaster ride that has passed into movie legend. The story, for the tiny number of people not familiar with it, concerns a farm boy named Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) who discovers that the used robot recently purchased by his family plays back a message from one Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), begging for help from Obi-Wan Kenobi. Luke asks his father's friend Ben Kenobi (Alec Guinness) about this, and he discovers that Ben and Obi-Wan are one and the same. Kenobi tells Luke of the battle of the rebels against the ruling Empire and the spiritual energy called "The Force." Soon Luke, Kenobi, and a mercenary named Han Solo (Harrison Ford) join forces to rescue Princess Leia from the Empire's mammoth warship, the Death Star, controlled by evil genius Darth Vader (David Prowse, with the voice of James Earl Jones). George Lucas has frequently cited the influence of several films on Star Wars, particularly Akira Kurosawa's The Hidden Fortress and Yojimbo and John Ford's The Searchers, as well as the original Flash Gordon serials. After Star Wars became a success, Lucas announced his intention to turn the film into a series, originally totalling nine films (later pared back to six). Consequently, most reissue prints now feature the title Star Wars: Episode IV -- A New Hope, with The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983) serving as Episodes Five and Six in the serial, and Star Wars: Episode I -- The Phantom Menace (1999) going back to the myth's beginnings. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Careful You Should Be

    This is just an alert since there seems to be some confusion about a trilogy release with the original unaltered versions along with the special editions vs a trilogy set that only contains the special editions and no copies of the original unaltered versions. The reviews for both sets are merged together... that is why you are seeing people claim that it has the original unaltered versions, and people complaining they do not. THIS set that I specifically clicked on to make this comment on is on the 2004 release which DOES NOT CONTAIN THE ORIGINAL UNALTERED VERSIONS. The box image is silver and has Darth Vader's mask on the box. This set ONLY contains the SE along with a 4th bonus disc of making of features and trailers and a sneak peak at episode III. If you want the trilogy set that contains both the SE and the unaltered versions but no bonus features, make sure when purchasing from Amazon, that the picture is a picture of Darth Vader and Luke clashing with light sabers and the box has a lot of blue coloring. It also says IV V VI along the bottom. Scroll down to DVD info and it should say release date: 2008. THAT is the version you are looking for. If you place an order on the Trilogy with the Silver box with Darth Vaders mask on it, you are going to get the 2004 release of the trilogy and that's probably not the one you want... This review is going to appear on both sets though... So make sure before you buy, that you are on the correct trilogy page. Check the picture. Check the release date.

    "Star Wars" original space trilogy is the BEST epic space adventure of all time! The special effect still hold up today and the quality is absolutely AMAZING on Blu Ray discs played on a Samsung 4K TV! This series has got it all ... FUN, MYSTERY, SCI-FI, ACTION, SPACE BATTLES, COMEDY, DRAMA ... George Lucas did an amazing job creating these movies, obviously with the help of many many talented people in all the areas of film-making, the costumes are amazing, the special effects are amazing, the script is very well written, the actors all did an incredible job! I would definitely recommend STAR WARS TRILOGY to anyone who hasn't yet seen it, but I don't know anyone who hasn't. But if you haven't seen it on BLU RAY on a Samsung 4K TV you're missing out because it's really MIND BLOWING !!!

    The glory of Star Wars, on blu ray.

    The star wars trilogy is something I was raised on. I grew up watching Luke, Han, Leia, R2 and Chewie battle against the evil Darth Vader and the galactic empire. So when I found these all in glorious Blu-ray HD, I was ecstatic. The re-mastered version does the original justice- it's all a star wars fan could love, in the picture quality one would expect from a 21st century film. It's star wars. It's a classic. The biggest gripe I have about it is the fact that this version is George Lucas' "updated" version, complete with added unnecessary scenes. Some of them are actually worthy additions that add to the story. Others are totally unnecessary and weren't added to the original for a reason. Either way, you're stuck with them. That having been said, it's a great collection. The extras are standard, but good. If you're a star wars fan looking to add the original trilogy to your blu-ray collection, buy with confidence. You're in for a treat.

    Can't beat the price, but ....

    .... the ultra-compact design of the packaging is pretty annoying. No, these are not the versions you saw in the theater. As a matter of fact, you've never actually seen Episode IV released in ANY format that is the same. The original big screen version did not contain the subtitle "Episode IV". Every version released on home video has been modified at least in that regard. But, I digress, massively. For the price, I'm satisfied, at least, temporarily until a massive feature laden release makes its way to the consumer. I'm guessing that's five to ten years from now, when all nine episodes can be bundled together into an overpriced collection that we'll all pay too much for because this release will contain remastered and original versions, plus a dearth of 'newly discovered' deleted scenes, outtakes, and what not. But, I'll unplug the consumption grump and simply state these films look and sound great on Blu-Ray - because they do.

    Nuff said about the movie. Simply refer to the title and know it is a sci-fi classic on many different areas regarding movie categories (i.e. filming, special effects, acting, scripts, music scores, etc.). Best Buy, Garner, NC location has consistently had floor staff who are professional, not pushy to further unnecessary additional item suggestions, aware of the inventory and respective need of an item's location, and interacted well and appropriately with my young children too. Price comparison while in the store found the item to be priced comparable to local area brick and mortar stores, as well as meeting online pricing for competitors too.

    My wife and I wanted a refresher on the entire Star Wars saga prior to watching The Force Awakens. Unfortunately there was no way to rent it, so we had to purchase everything, paying around $80 for Episodes 1-6. We're obviously fans of Star Wars, so we're bound to say the movies were good, BUT if you're expecting a Hi Def version of the originals, think again. These have been revised, with parts of the movies edited for no real reason. I guess they wanted to streamline the story, and decided that adding clips, characters, and references to the first 3 movies would do that. In the scene where Luke sees the ghosts of his mentors for example, the original DV has been replaced by Anakin. They also added in a scene of the Gungans of Naboo celebrating at the end of Episode VI. All in all they're still great movies, but you should definitely know ahead of time what you're getting.

    The Original Trilogy in stellar quality

    Stellar Battles! Retcons or not, the original trilogy remastered in Blu-Ray quality is a MUST for fans of the series. Don't mind the minor details like extra Banthas or Dewbacks in A New Hope, or even Gungans CG'd into Return of the Jedi, but focus on the inclusion of Ian McDiarmid's Emperor Palpatine in Empire Strikes Back and the symbolism of Hayden Christensen's insertion as younger Anakin Skywalker in Return of the Jedi to represent that he has been restored to a form that represented his Jedi-self before he was corrupted into Darth Vader!! Very exciting stuff, and I would definitely recommend this trilogy to all fans of Star Wars!
