Anyone else pick this DVD up this morning? There was a big crowd at the local TRU waiting for it today. I got my Widescreen version. :wink:

Going to stop by Toys R Us before school this morning to pick me up a copy. Can't beat $9.99 for a DVD of Star Wars EP 2. Hopefully they still have some left.

Nope. I'd rather buy the ORIGINAL episodes 4-6, not the modified ones that Lucas spewed out.

Anyone else think that Eps 1 & 2 sucked? 2 only slightly less. Too polished and set up for the big lines....I prefer the roughness of the original 3.

Perhaps lucas will get the new series right in Ep. III. hehe

But I digress. I did end up buying the original AT-AT walker, in its ROTJ box for my friend's birthday - his fav. vehicle.....ya can't beat old-school! *l*

Worth every penny, btw.

Got mine this morning in UK. Far better than Episode 1, although the ending is pretty bad - it justs ends. Audio is great - has THX and all the usual Dolby (sounds great on my Sony DAV S500 home cinema). Its a 2 disc set - 1 for the film, 1 for special features - eg deleted scenes, trailers, interviews etc.

Finally got around to picking up a copy of Star Wars Episode II (Widescreen Edition) DVD on Saturday afternoon. Probably pop it into a DVD-ROM drive and watch it at the office during the work day.

I think most of the older fans preferred 4-6. EP1 storyline, acting, and target viewer IQ seemed to be only slightly above that of Sesame Street. EP2 seemed a little more deep & more mature as well as tieing in with more EP4-6. Nice Death Star intro too. :wink:
