movie watching

I was watching Return of the Jedi tonight. They changed it a bit and I'm not sure I care for the change. You see, they put in Hayden Christensen at the end bit (where everyone's partying and Luke looks over and sees the spirits of his father, Obi-Wan and Yoda). A couple of thoughts come to mind...

1. Are the spirits meant to look like the person when they died? If so, why not leave the original actor in there?

2. If the spirits can choose to look however they want, then why wouldn't Obi-Wan choose to look like his younger self? Ewan McGregor is pretty damn hot, really.

I guess I should have seen it coming after J mentioned that they'd changed Boba Fett's voice in the Empire Strikes Back (they showed it last week) to have a New Zealand accent (so it fit in with the Attack of the Clones episode).

At the same time I also watched Logan's Run (flipping between the two channels). Now that's a movie I haven't seen in a long long time. Got me to remembering the tv show they made. I loved that as a kid. And according to IMDB they're also doing a remake of the movie. I guess the saying 'everything old is new again' is really true.
