The problem is that film used as a verb is quite efficient, compared to capture with a digital movie camera or even shoot in digital 4K.

And no one has coined a similar term that conveys the technology involved. We could steal a phrase from A Clockwork Orange and say we’re viddying it? 😉

Record?

Shoot?

Visual/aural data storage?

You guys should just start a pedant thread.

I want to bitch freely about people who refer to instrumental music as “songs”, so +1.

4K restoration on Star Wars

There’ll be a hockey franchise in Hades before Disney ever releases original cuts of any of their films again.

There was a magazine sized issue part of the Marvel Super Special run and an oversized giant edition.

Can’t recall what version of Yoda appeared in them though. I probably had the oversized edition but those things were hard to store with one’s regular sized comics.

I have the Norwegian version of that edition, and Yoda looks more or less normal in it. He’s still smaller than in the movie, but his face looks like the proper final design.

I’ve read (and own) several versions of Marvel’s ESB adaptation and I’ve only seen two versions. In both he’s too small, and in the second Williamson mostly just re-drew Yoda’s face/head.

The gradient shading in those pics! A great example of how “realistic” Special Editionist re-coloring of vintage comics has infected the modern comic book industry. Not even an inset illustration in a book can go without “improvement”.

Looking at that literally makes my eyes hurt. How anyone could believe that muddy, ugly shit-smear is an improvement over the original colouring is beyond my comprehension.

ALSO ANDROIDS ARE HUMANOID ROBOTS AND ROBOTS HAVE COMPUTERS IN THEM

Nuh-uh. Not always. Sometimes they’re synthetic organisms created in the laboratory.

Nuh-uh. Never. All robots are computers. If it has biological parts, it’s not a robot.

Wookieepedia’s article on androids said:

Authors have used the term android in more diverse ways than robot or cyborg. In some fictional works, the difference between a robot and android is only their appearance, with androids being made to look like humans on the outside but with robot-like internal mechanics.[3] In other stories, authors have used the word “android” to mean a wholly organic, yet artificial, creation.[3] Other fictional depictions of androids fall somewhere in between.[3]
