He managed to ruin the original trilogy. Â I'm trying to find an unadulterated copy on VHS. koji
And miss the eye-catching cloud city and jabba the hut scenes, both beautifully rendered by some guy sitting in a dark room eating doritos and staring at a computer.? C'mon, they go PERFECTLY with the mechanics of beautifully crafted props and sets.

Portman--But, Mr. Lucas, there's a mountain right outside. Let's go film it there. L(grandoisely(sp?))-- But that's not acting

like there's a mountain behind you. Now, act. Stagehand--The fire in this fireplace keeps going out. L--Leave it. We'll fix it in post.
