Comments on Empire Strikes Back

The DVDÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s have had slight changes as well as, the 1997 re-release version, where all the visuals remain, the same except for a few minor changes with the emperor, in the DVD edition.
But if you do have the opportunity to spend out on a Laserdisc Player, there going for around Ã‚Â£200,00 to Ã‚Â£100,00 or under if your lucky to come across one, look for a model that sports Ã¢â‚¬Å“Dolby AC-3Ã¢â‚¬Â the Pioneer series are so choice for the format.
Now, remember that scream as Luke falls down that huge shaft, well thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s only on the 1980-1997, release version, not on the DVD edition, talk about a director who is confused with what he wants and doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t what.
Now if Lucasfilm had made the choice to realise the DVD, as a dual version, like they did with, Ã¢â‚¬Å“The AbyssÃ¢â‚¬Â 1989-1992 I would be choosing over the theatrical version, most of the time.
Now that does give the fan, or the user the choice to view and hear the filmmakers art as it was when first exhibited to audiences back in 1980.

Wowzer you really do know an immense amount about this. I do watch discs on ebay quite a lot and am very tempted to get them but with being at uni I don't really have the money to spend at the moment and I'm really trying to save up for a new TV. However the next couple of weeks I should be working a ton of over time so hopefully I'll be able to get the Star Wars discs then, I'd love to have them.
You can twist my arm, and I still wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t sale my definitive collection THX Laserdisc box-set, which was autographed at a Star Trek convention hear in Bournemouth a few years back, priceless.
No, you do see some Laserdisc owners selling them, thinking there DVD version is the crÃƒÂ¨me de la crÃƒÂ¨me, what morons, the reason IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m still hold on to my Laserdisc versions is quite simple, there is no other version that will be close to the theatrical release, and at the silly price there flogging them at, great, if it where me the starting price would be very high, very.
If youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re looking for some Laserdiscs, look within the United Kingdom, the mailing cost would be low, and the time it would take to reach you would only be a few days.
At this very moment IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m running, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Return of the JediÃ¢â‚¬Â definitive collection CAV side 5, and the Lucasfilm THX audio system makes very pleasurable to listen to, taking of the edgy harshness of the high frequencies etcetera, etcetera.
