4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

George isn’t going to last forever, and while Kathleen Kennedy owes him her entire career and is forever in his pocket, she’s probably going to be gone too with time. What she must have like 50 years left in her? Have some patience, jeez. Set your clocks for 2070 you guys, that’s the date. You just gotta wait, it’s definitely coming. They’re just holding out on us for the 80th anniversary. Maybe the 100th. I can’t believe anyone would think it won’t ever happen.

^Doing ridiculous, dumb things is fun though, and I think that’s what a lot of people are missing. You start turning it into a lecture about “dignity” or “film appreciation” in the traditional sense, and you just miss the point.

Sure, for dumb teens posting “I am the Senate” jokes or whatever. They’ll get over it. But this was supposedly a journalist writing a real article, so they are supposed to be making a better argument than the same old re-digested shite. Then again ScreenRant is a joke, so what can you really say.

I think there’s something inherently stupid about the idea that everything holds up over time as long as you watched it at a young age, and by the same token inferring that young people can’t appreciate films that are older than they are. Kids buy into all kinds of garbage, that’s just part of life. Fads pass and franchises gather dust. But generally people mature and develop a taste for things that are well written and well acted, the key ingredients in any sort of lasting cinema whether it’s a landmark or not.

Arguing that there is actually some kind of hidden quality to a series that is panned for the most obvious reasons is laughable, like all these other pointless top 10s that make such absurd claims, which are about as ridiculous as that ring theory gibberish. If you like bad movies then just have some dignity and say it instead of writing sellout articles and pandering to fanatics.

Honestly, this movie is my last go-round with the New Continuity - having been lukewarm about TFA and completely disappointed by Rogue One and any of the new canon novels I’ve read (exception: Lost Stars). If “The Last Jedi” is anything less than amazing, I’m out. I’ll stick with the OT and the 1990s EU stuff that I enjoy.

This. (Except all that EU stuff, I haven’t the inclination.)

I don’t see what’s so hard to understand about the 2020 thing.

I don’t see how getting the rights back somehow creates a useable master for the such a release, if it was ever to happen at all.

If they are not doing anything right now, I don’t see how 2020 is a realistic date. One because such a restoration is surely a lengthy process to have it ready then is not feasible. Two because if damaged and aged film prints are in bad shape now, they will be even worse when that time rolls around.

Poita whatever you are doing keep it hidden from the Empire or it will go the way of Mike Verta’s work.

Awesome Star Wars art (pic heavy!!)

While ‘lock s-foils in attack position’ is about as technical as the movies ever get, I guess that’s what they all took their cue from.
