It is starting to look like, even if this release does not start flying off of the shelves, it will still sell reasonably well.
Lucas cares to invest in the OOT with a future release.
The Digital Bits has an excellent article in which they refute everyone of LFL's points one by one and prove that restoration is physically possible.
I think we need to decide what we will all write about to present a unified front; the real issue and the logical complaint here is, IMO, not that a better source doesn't exist but that the treatment of these film classics is sub-par.
Star Wars is an Academy Award-winning movie and is on the Academy's list of the top 100 films of all time, for crying out loud!
Why should movies such as SCREAM 3 and TRANSYLVANIA 6-5000 get the anamorphic treatment while the OOT is relegated to the realm of bonus material in non-anamorphic letterboxing from a 13 year old LaserDisc transfer?
We need Jay and the petitioners and forumites, however.
The more people, the better.
We need to make a lot of noise.
Definitely, but we've got to project our noise in the right directions.Originally posted by: Mike O
I'll PM Jay.

Yes, please start a new thread giving the contact info etc., that way, everyone will see it, and we can all post in the thread that we've sent our email (or snail mail letter), and we can post what we've written if we want to.
I'll do this as soon as I have that list worked up today.
We can do this every week- each with a new place to concentrate on.
