Does anyone know if there is theatrical cuts of the trilogy on blu ray. Either to download or buy ?

But you have to own the blurays first before you can do that. Since nobody wants to actually read anymore we may as well post all this information in every single thread, but people will won’t see it.

Thanks guys I will certainly read through things now. And good to know the points you have both raised. It will aid my quest to watch the originals without the added cgi

The 35 mm presentations are very raw though and to me more useful as resources to touch up than watched on their own. Even dreamasters esb, which has AMAZING image quality minus a few scenes that actually rivals the bluray for sharpness and is quite clear also, still suffers from shakiness and some scenes have flickering colors which make it hard to simply watch, but will be an invaluable resource for projects like harmy.

^ Possessed is definitely right on this.

If you specifically want to see a film print that isn’t completely restored, then you should go for the 35mm preservations. If you want a blu-ray copy then go for Harmy. Each one has advantages and disadvantages though. Harmy’s are much better-looking in most parts although there are some noticeable coverups of the changes due to the need to use sources that simply look different than the blu-ray; the 35mm preservations, while not looking as pristine as Harmy’s versions at their best, are consistent in their look throughout.

So you wanna be a rock ‘n’ roll star?

Well empire isn’t because there are parts where the print had (irreparably?) Faded red.

It’s a shame because the rest in dreamasters version actually rivals the Blu Ray except the image shakes and sometimes the colors flicker.
