spawningblue, I think in the minds of most fans, fixes and improvements are beside the point. Many of us, myself included, would rather the films not be tampered with at all. As has been mentioned a million times before, Ridley really did right by the fans with his Blade Runner release. Even though the changes are barely noticable and could all be considered fixes and improvements, he gave the the audience the choice of watching the original theatrical version, which he has disowned. At this point, I really don't care what Lucas does to Star Wars: add more goofy CGI, slap phony 3D on it, convert it to B&W and then Ted Turner-colorize it. I just want to choice of watching the versions I grew up with.
