While a bit pop-culture and light hearted, it's an indelible part of every geek's soul, so perhaps it's worthy of a front page discussion:

Over at Movie Pilot, Alex Rosenhiem puts forth a compelling argument for preservation of art and of shared cultural experience and why that matters. He couches it in the context of revisionism as applied to the Han/Greedo Cantina scene, long a source of nerd rage, countless arguments and is even it's own meme. The moment is a pivotal one for the development of the Han Solo character, but more importantly Rosenhiem argues that Art, Star Wars included, gives us access to the past and where we were at a certain point in time when we first experienced it.

    Given that Disney is now the IP owner, the Hans-shoots-first versions will never hit the market.

    Well, not unless Disney sees it would be more profitable than maintaining the current, Greedo shoots first and look!-inappropriate-shiny-CGI-shit-everywhere-caus e-I-need-to-justify-re-releasing-the-films version.

    Maybe during the 50 anniversary addition, Disney will re-release the Hans-shoots-first remastered edition.
