How Return of the Jedi was Ruined

As far as I have been concerned, there have only ever been three Star Wars movies. The ones released in 1977, 1980, and 1983, as they were released, sans enhanced digital explosions and insertions of extra storm troopers, banthas, and ghostly Hayden Christensens.

What a Wonderful Smell

So something that always bothered me about Star Wars: A New Hope is the fact that nobody seems to change their clothes very often.
