"Um, Mark Hamil's acting is FAR better than Jake Lloyd's. If you can't tell that, you know nothing about acting. Someone said that the NT is paced the same as the OT. Wrong. TPM has the same pacing and structure, but not ATOC. The OT doesn't cut away for two minutes, cut back for two minutes, and cut away for two minutes again. Common editing sense tells you not to do that. " This is what I meant by nostalgia. You've grown up with Hammil so you accept his perfomance. But that doesn't his acting in ROTJ any less bland. As for the editing, yes the OT did cut back and forth a lot, particularly in ESB. Admitedly I haven't sat down with a stop watch and timed them to see EXACTLY which one does it more often, but they both do it quite a bit. And neither is as choppy as, say, Dark City.
