I've also heard there's been no cleanup/color correction during the digital transfer -- the suspicion that it's a deliberately low quality transfer so they can come out with yet another version in a few years.
I have this memory of subplot2 talking about going to watch Star Wars for the first time a year or more ago, and you were only able to get the Special Edition versions. Am I on crack? Did that happen?
I wonder who I'm thinking of instead. I remember someone saying they were going to show their girlfriend/boyfriend Star Wars for the first time and I had a conversation about the importance of introducing people to it with the originals and not the Special Editions. I can't find it in any LJ comments, so it was something done on the phone or in person. My memory sucks.
Ok, that's what I remember. I couldn't imagine that there was more than one person on my friends list who hadn't seen them. I guess I couldn't find the LJ comments (emails) because I didn't use the words "Lucas" or "star wars" or "trilogy".
