    Always thought I’d seen the original 3 but turns out I havent.
    Was watching Return of the Jedi last night but fell asleep in the middle of it.

    After slating this utter rubbish on here I sat and watched the original 3 films and they are actually very good, I now see why people love them. . But to be obsessed like this is mentally not right. He needs help.

    Seriously 240p? I know this star wars build up has been going on for what seems like an age, but I don’t think it began in 2004. Seriously can RTE even upload a Youtube video correctly?
