The difference is a very fine line as the accusations were about re-releasing for the purpose of making money. There are no other reasons for Comedy Central to re-do the episodes in HD but to re-sell the property to current owners of DVDs. I would be curious to know if Trey Parker is actually happy about the re-mastering (remember that South Park is the property of Comedy Central, not of Parker and Stone) or not.

In all fairness, one other possibility for remastering isn't to re-sell another copy to those who have already bought the DVD set, but to entice new, first time buyers who may not want to invest in an "older" format for a big, 12-season set...

I don't know one way or another, but I think sometimes conspiricy theorists assume that every Blu-Ray re-release is to gouge the customer. Some, I'm sure, are. But other times it might be done to future-proof their body of work and keep it viable in the market.

That was hardly the only criticism, and I wouldn't even say it was the major criticism. Do you really believe there would be as much vitriol toward Lucas if he hadn't added new special effects in the cheesiest way possible and made Greedo shoot first and then totally undermined the magic of the original trilogy with the crappy prequels and then went on to ruin Indiana Jones as well, having learned nothing from the feedback?

I agree with CV on this one. The new special effects were so different from the originals that they didn't blend and reminded you that you were watching a movie. Same thing bothers me when they go split screen in shows like 24. I get totally wrapped up in the suspense and then they they split the screen and I go "oh ya, it's just a TV show."

The Han Solo scene really bugged me. Not just for trying to turn his tough smuggler image into an innocent pretty boy but also because its so ridiculous that anyone could miss at point blank range. It's all been said before but he messes up my favorite movie of all time and then moved on to desecrate it further with prequals that could have been better written by an average high school student.

And don't even get me started on Midochlorians!!! I remember actually saying out loud in the movie theater, "Oh for F sake!"

and that's my for the day.

\:\) Sorry to Eric if I was being a bit of an excitable boy (that Warren Zevon album came out the month I was born, if we want to pretend that means anything). I get passionate about odd things.
