ReviewSource The DVD Report
Review "No personal film library can possibly be complete without the greatest trilogy in cinema history (sorry Lord of the Rings fans, but Star Wars is the true king). The complete DVD trilogy offers the three original episodes (which are really episodes four, five, and six) with even more changes made by creator George Lucas for the DVD release...Without a doubt, Star Wars is the defining movie series of its generation, spawning entirely new industries to sell its merchandise and quench the desires of its loyal fans for more of anything whatsoever that's Star Wars related..."

Review By now everyone knows Lucas's inspirations for "Star Wars." Besides the adventure serials he so loved so well, Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers, and the like, Lucas acknowledged the influence of mythologist and mythographer Joseph Campbell, which also helps explains why the plot and characters in "Star Wars" seem so familiar...Not to forget John Dykstra's special effects; the production department's still-amazing miniatures, modelled after the pioneering work in "2001"; John Williams' epic soundtrack music; Gilbert Taylor's sweeping cinematography; and the work of a legion of filmmakers and crafts people who brought it all to life.
