Okay. Now for my first post in almost 2 weeks. I live both Indiana Jones and Star Wars. Recently though, Raiders of the Lost Ark has become my favorite film once again. Indy is just, in my opinion, a better character than Han. (Han's love scenes are better though.)
Now, you're probably all wondering why I quoted a post. Well, here's my reason. Why dies it matter if Han shot first? He and Greedo shot about a split second apart from each other. They practically shot at the same time. (Yeah, in the '97 Special Editions it was slower, but not enough to really matter.) I even prefer the updated scene. I'm pretty sure I'm going to get crap from SW fans everywhere for this post. Also, I will say that I stand by every George Lucas that he makes to increase continuity between his two amazing film trilogies, or just on a whim. Well, that's pretty much all I have to say about that.

It's just a tribute to the original way the movie was. I actually don't mind GL cleaning things up and making things look and sound better, but changing what actually happened in a classic movie, is less cool. Fans had been begging to have the originals on DVD and for the longest time GL said no. The quote "Han Shoots First" is actually on a button distributed by Lucasfilm at CC when they announced that they would be releasing the films in their original form on DVD. The announcement was made at CC on SW day (Friday) by Steve Sansweet and then they gave out the buttons, which became a hot commodity that week.
