I can almost
ignore the whole who shot first thing because I'd rather watch Empire than New Hope most days and that one was hardly messed with. But you all should really watch the Jabba's Palace dance scene. It is so much worse than I could ever imagine. And if you remember in the original the Twilek dancer Oola was singing/ begging Jabba not to make her do whatever it is that Hutts like done to them sexually (there's a book out there that describes what she had to do for him
) but her pleas went along with the music perfectly and the song was kind of cool. In the new one they have these weird CGI aliens singing this bizarre song and they just looks bad especially the two main singers.
Apparently they could film an extra scene before Oola gets eaten by the rancor with her face in shock and it's the actual actress and she barely aged. That's sort of cool but the rest is so pointless and turns a scene that shows how cruel Jabba is into a boring song and dance number that has no place in the movie.
I really want to get my girlfriend into Star Wars but now I'm worried I can't find the original version of the films. Hopefully someone on Baidu (Chinese google) pirated the originals and we can get them there...
