The absurdity and creativity of this shot by shot recreation from the CineFix guys is pretty great, and so is the side-by-side comparison and the behind the scenes too!

I saw Return of the Jedi in theaters when I was 4. I do not remember that experience. I saw the rest probably sometime in 1984/1985. So the movies were a few years old when I saw them.

I saw them in the 90s at various times on VHS. Still have toys of some of those floating around. C-3PO, R2D2, Luke, Han, even a Ton ton. X-Wing, snowspeeder, and sand speeder too. All heavily played with. What can I say? I believed toys were meant to be played with, not sit uselessly in a box forever.

I had some of those vintage toys but not that many.. A star trooper, an x wing pilot, an imperial guard (those red ones with capes, was my favorite!), a princess leia with that robot disguise when she goes to jabba, a luke skywalker with a fake hand..

Anybody remember the original Star Wars video game, I mean way back in time, where you pilot an X-Wing Fighter down the trench on the Death Star? Graphics were very simple, with no color - only green lines.

I loved that game.

I was a sophomore in High School. More or less I saw it when it first came out.

The other two movies of the original series came out when I was in college.
