Star Wars Trilogy (VHS, 2000, Spanish Special Edition; Episode II Footage)

Movie synopsis
One of the most exhilarating and influential trilogies in the history of motion pictures, George Lucas's sci-fi spectacular continues to capture the hearts and minds of individuals throughout the world. This release contains the STAR WARS trilogy (episodes IV-VI) in one glorious package.First up is STAR WARS; George Lucas's stunning sci-fi masterpiece, and arguably one of the most inventive and entertaining films ever made. As the adventure begins, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), an impulsive but goodhearted young man who lives on the dusty planet of Tatooine with his aunt and uncle, longs for the exciting life of a Rebel soldier. The Rebels, led by the headstrong Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), are fighting against the evil Empire, which has set about destroying planets inhabited by innocent citizens with the Death Star, a fearsome planetlike craft commanded by Grand Moff Tarkin (Peter Cushing) and the eternally frightful Darth Vader (David Prowse, with the voice of James Earl Jones). When Luke's aunt and uncle are murdered by the Empire's imperial stormtroopers and he mysteriously finds a distress message from Princess Leia in one of his androids, R2-D2 (Kenny Baker), he must set out to find Obi-Wan Kenobi (Alec Guinness), a mysterious old hermit with incredible powers. On his journey, Luke is aided by the roguish, sarcastic mercenary Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and his towering furry sidekick Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew) as they run into a host of perilous situations while trying to rescue the princess--and the entire galaxy. Considered the most morally and emotionally complex of the original Star Wars trilogy, THE EMPIRE STRIKE BACK continues creator George Lucas's epic saga where STAR WARS left off. The Rebel Forces--which include young adventurer Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), rogue pilot Han Solo (Harrison Ford), and the beautiful but seemingly humorless Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher)--have been successful in destroying the Evil Empire's Death Star. However, the Empire's top commander, the terrifying Lord Darth Vader (played by David Prowse, voiced by James Earl Jones), is scanning the galaxy for the Rebels' secret location. After a visually stunning showdown on the ice planet Hoth, the Rebels are forced to flee, and Luke separates from Han and Leia. Masterful storytelling weaves multiple, archetypal plotlines that pit Vader against Han and Leia as he desperately attempts to capture Luke for political--and, secretly, personal--reasons. Luke, meanwhile, finds himself under the tutelage of the tiny but powerful old Jedi Master Yoda, who teaches him the ways of the Force and warns the impatient but talented student against the threat of the Dark Side. Greek tragedy meets a philosophical hero's journey in EMPIRE, a remarkable sci-fi epic in which the performances are as powerful as the spectacular special effects.The third and final chapter in the wondrous STAR WARS saga is RETURN OF THE JEDI. Luke (Mark Hamill) must save Han Solo (Harrison Ford) from the clutches of the monstrous Jabba the Hut, and bring down the newly reconstructed--and even more powerful--Death Star. With Solo imprisoned, Luke accompanies his faithful droids R2D2 (Kenny Baker) and C3PO (Anthony Daniels) in a rescue bid, with Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew) also lending a hand. After they valiantly disentangle their friends from Jabba's clutches, Luke returns to his Jedi Knight training with Yoda. Meanwhile, the Rebel Troops amass in an attempt to see off the impending threat from Darth Vader (played by David Prowse, voiced by James Earl Jones) and his new Death Star, with the operation being lead by Han Solo. But Luke must face Vader himself if he is to become a true Jedi Knight, and as he enters into a spirited battle with his light saber-wielding enemy, some surprising revelations await the young warrior.

May the FORCE be with you!

If you've never seen any of the Star Wars movies, you should. It's a piece of America itself. The movies are timeless and are a classic tale of good vs evil, the oppressed full of hope attempting to change their future with nothing to lose. I saw Star Wars as a kid in 1977 at the theater with my parents and I've loved the movies ever since. My nephew is now the same age I was when I saw the original movies and he loves them too. VHS format is a great way to go if you don't want to invest a lot of money and you still have a working VCR. This trilogy also has interviews with George Lucas the creator of Star Wars.

One interesting note is that the movies were not released in order. George started with A New Hope #4 then released #5 and #6. Then in 1999 #1 The Phantom Menace was released and due to order it becomes a prequel. Then #2 and #3 are released. Amazingly each of these movies are stand alone meaning you could watch them without seeing the others and still enjoy a good movie.

To me the only factor that doesn't work in releasing #4 first was that due to advancements in cinematography they look older than #1,2,3 and less advanced when in reality they would be the most current. I thought it would have been interesting if George could have filmed the first three, waited about 5 years and then filmed 4,5,6 then release them in the same order he did. I know budgets don't really allow for that, but it could have been interesting.

If you can't stand older movies and prefer the graphic advances of newer movies then start with Episode #1 (1999) and watch them in order.

Enjoy!

Tape is Soooo last Century

If you would have asked me 10 years ago what I thought of the Trilogy being on tape...my answer would have been totally different. I would have said that I absolutly loved it. That is why I own several versions of each episode to date. I especially like my version (boxed set) that had an interview with Lucas by Leonard Malta at the beginning of each movie. It was really nice to be able to "get into the head" of the creator of this wonderful genre.

Although the movies were mastered or at least remastered in a digital format...it still looses something in the translation to tape. That is why I now have the complet collection on DVD. So much more "information" can be put onto one disk. Not only the deleted scenes, making of's etc...but also just the digital (coding) information that makes the playback of an even higher quality. George et al have done a superior job in all media formats...and as technology advances, I am sure that they will continue to expand our viewing enjoyment of the Star Wars Trilogy (and beyond) experience.
