The Star Wars Trilogy: A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi

DVD extras are usually a stale gathering of director commentaries and narcolepsy — inducing documentaries. Rarely is there reason to buy a disc just for the extras. Until now. George Lucas has finally gotten around to putting the first three Star Wars films on DVD in their entire campy, 1970s theatrical splendor. Granted, these original versions are extras. You'll still have to buy the New Coke version of the films to get the classics. But for diehard fans that have yearned to watch Star Wars without any dopey digital additions, the force is finally with us.
