I’m watching A New Hope for the first time with some friends and I’m having a hard time deciding between the Despecialized Edition v2.7 and the Silver Screen Edition v1.6. Which one should I watch?

Despecialized will look closer to a modern Blu-Ray restoration, Silver Screen will look closer to watching it in a theater in 1977. It’s really a matter of preference.

Since you have 2.7, Despecialized for sure.

So you wanna be a rock ‘n’ roll star?

One without “A New Hope” in the title.

For which Despecialized is fine.

Unfortunately, I get imperialscum vibes from it.

Thank you!

I Photoshopped the image for the wishlist thread and now I see it all over YouTube and WordPress. I really get a kick out of seeing them. The most used is probably the little guy from another place wearing green in the green room. When Paul Anderson fell out with David Lynch it just went everywhere. It just shows the reach of OT.com 🙂
