Unlike many a Star Wars fanboy, I don’t feel like George Lucas trampled my childhood when he started tinkering with the original Star Wars trilogy with the special edition tweaks back in 1997. In some cases, lightsaber enhancements, better lighting effects and more Wampa, the fixes improved on already outstanding films. But then, there’s some that got changed for seemingly no good reason other than to spark some good old fashioned fan outrage.
Now with news that the original, unedited trilogy will finally be coming to Blu-Ray, here’s the three fixes I’m glad to say goodbye to so I can not feel so obliged to hold onto my old VHS tapes. Continue Reading

James Franco (36) – More roles like Alien from “Spring Breakers” and less goofy comedies like “This is the End” pretty please. And, may want to stop flirting with17-year-olds. It goes from weird to creepy at 36.
Kate Hudson (35) – Now that your regular romantic comedy co-star Matthew McConaughey has won a Best Actor Oscar it’s time for that role that will earn you at least another nomination. Been too long since the nod for “Almost Famous” in 2001. I’m rooting for you!
Hayden Christensen (33) – I’ll go down swinging defending your performance in the “Star Wars” prequels even if I thought it was silly for George Lucas to toss you in “Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.” That minor gripe aside, you really should be talking to your agent about getting you into the “Fast and Furious” series as Paul Walker’s little brother.
