Are The Prequels That Bad?
Time

I didn’t see it until now. Pfff…

Well, so my rant changes from missing to hard to discern

It still feels odd. I like your “all were off, it was Sunday“ comment.

Are The Prequels That Bad?
Time

Let’s talk about world building: are all Kaminoans living on this “oil rig“? It seems that this oil rig actually produced millions of clones, educated and nurtured them. This “oil rig“ just didn’t sell it for me to be home of “millions“.

Are there more than 3 Kaminoans? It looks more than a deserted outpost than a wealthy nation that can produce millions of clones.

Although I liked Kamino as a location for its special vibe (more than any other location in EP 2) it just didn’t sell it for me.

The inside of the rig feels more like MIB than Star Wars. I don’t know if MIB 2 being in production at ILM at the same time has anything to do with it 😉

Yoda and Palpatine NEVER should have been given lightsabers.
Time

In an ideal PT Maul shouldn’t have used light sabers either and Dooku shouldn’t have used force lightning.

The way it is now is so inconsistent with the OT. Vader and Dooku are fallen Yedi. Why would Dooku be able to use force lightning when Vader obviously couldn’t in the OT (and RO)? Despite the facts that there was more time between the PT and the OT than between TPM and AOTC and Vader beeing the chosen one and Dooku not.

You see the reason I have an issue with desert shot and some other shots is it seems too warm like they have completely yellow skin. Also some shots of obi wan he looks a little red still. Also on the death star there’s some color issues there as well.

Like Darth Lucas said, the desert shots are supposed to be warm, and I personally don’t see yellow skin tones. The Death Star color grading is Mike Verta’s so take it up with him 😉. That said, these are based on just 4 reference shots. In practise you don’t regrade an entire film on four reference shots, which in this case did not even contain any desert shots.

what about the scene in the lars home owen looks yellow and beru and luke look wrong as well.

Or when Yoda hands Luke the pipe?

The same under a yellow exposure. Is it representative of what would be on the screen ?

Whether your push to a warmer temperature is actually correct? I don’t have a clue.

Since most calibrated TV Sets probably use the warmest (or next to the warmest) setting, some cannot add the warm vintage light bulb effect by themselves.

Thus a warm light bulb effect should be added to the final master (just like you did). And if somebody wanted a more neutral “projection“ he could always set his TV to a (more) neutral color temperature.

At least I have the feeling the we shouldn’t overdo that effect and shouldn’t go with the warmest vintage bulbs but should go for rather “new“ ones.

Star Wars Negatives and Interpositives
Time

What about the difference between the “negatives” (with the optical effects applied to them) and the OCN (the reel that was in the camera back then)?

Even if they conformed the official “negative” into something else, there should remain the OCN frames somewhere for all scenes with optical effects (wipes and optical compositions etc).

With the OCN frames all optical effects would have to be recreated digitally which is probably a lot of work.

The Force Awakens: Official Review Thread - ** SPOILERS **
Time

I succeeded in liking the Phantom Menace at the cinema. I knew that it was some kind of a forced love (which Lucas trumped with Anakin vs. Padme one movie later). But I kinda liked it.

Then the DVD arrived and everything got worse. The pacing was off (an already too long race got longer) and some CG scenes surrounding the pod race got longer and more embarrassing. That was the moment when I knew that Lucas himself got off the track. I didn’t know about the special edition changes back then.

The Force Awakens: Official Review Thread - ** SPOILERS **
Time

I can grasp your feelings with the dialog. I remember feeling embarrassed at the cinema when watching phantom and clones. And I really tried to like those movies. In the end I skipped Sith and watched it with a six pack of beer on TV some years later.

I was soo hesistant when watching TFA at the cinema. And that movie succeeded at what I considered impossible at that time: I felt home in the Star Wars universe again. I think part of that might have been Kasdan’s dialogues in it. But there was the magic again that I remembered seeing th OT as a kid.
