Yes, I get your original point. It is a good original point. I agree with your original point.
My post was that the single example you brought up in the episode was a particularly BAD example to use as an illustration of that point. Seriously, there is no other movie that has MORE outcry about how the original ISN’T widely available to watch. That people go to all the effort to make despecialized editions, because the original works of art aren’t widely available, is making MY POINT, and refuting YOUR choice of example. Almost NO OTHER movie has this issue, and what makes Star Wars unique from so many other movies is how its legacy is being tarnished by how the original movie isn’t widely available.
Really, Scott, it’s okay to let this one go. You know you picked a bad example, and you’re only making yourself look like an idiot trying to make it into a good example. Nobody else on this forum is thinking “wow, I really think more of Scott’s character because he’s sticking to his guns on this one”.
