As you may have noticed from the incessant product placement in ads and media, Star Wars: The Complete Saga hits shelves on Blu-Ray this week. The nine-disc set ($139.99) includes both the awesome, genre-changing original three movies and the putrid, hope-demolishing follow-up prequel trilogy. But it also comes with forty hours of material (alternate shots, behind-the-scenes photo, interviews) that will cause Star Wars geeks (and there are plenty of them) to have the same reaction that a 22-year-old male has to porn. Of course, Star Wars geeks have also made their uncomfortable presence known on the web, which is why you will have no trouble finding the droids you were looking for.
