it bears mentioning..

...that today marks the 30th anniversary, to the day, of the original theatrical release of Star Wars.

entirely coincidentally, I have the disc from Netflix and just watched it... I have to say, the DVD version just is not the same. I want to see the original version, with bad effects and obvious sets and no CG dinosaur-creatures. but i also have to say that it is a beautifully shot movie - some of the frames are just so awesome. I don't remember them having such attention to detail and simply beautiful frames in the newer films.

anyway... a childhood favorite revisited... it's never quite what it should be, but it's still one of my favorite movies ever.
