Star Wars The Complete Saga (Episodes I-VI)
If we'd have had a Blu-ray Star Wars boxset when the format first hit the tech scene every house in the country would have a Blu-ray player by now. But finally, after years of waiting, George Lucas's sci-fi saga is available in high-definition. It's a tale that needs no introduction, full of space battles, lightsabre showdowns, aliens and special effects wizardry. And Jar Jar Binks. Though the newer films in this 6-movie collection have their critics, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith benefit most from the jump to Blu-ray as they were shot digitally, and look absolutely stunning. Still, we all know the original trilogy is where the magic really lies, and the adventures of Luke, Han, Chewie and Leia look the best they ever have with this collection. The Force is strong with this boxset. £67.49 from Amazon
