Well, it was like this... it was my birthday yesterday and my best friend gave me ANH (Un CGI version).........
I have watched it through - and it brought back a lot of (good) memories. The film itself,mostly,holds its own - but I am beginning to appreciate some of the re-worked SFX.
It works without Jabba, Greedo firing first and a great many other things - the greatest difference I noticed was the cleaning up of the film stock. A lot of the location stuff is a lot more uniform in the SE. Just check out 3PO waving in the sandcrawler as an example.
It had been a long time since I had seen ANH in this format (albeit pan and scan), but I will treasure my newest acqusition.... a wonderful present.
