Awesome Star Wars art (pic heavy!!)
Time

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.

But what I meant is that if you don’t treat it like a properly remastered release, then you don’t have to remaster it. Like a TV special or an interview taken from the late 70s there’s no need to do any work since it’s a just a curio. It will be noticeable but nobody would care. LFL gets to say they are keeping the history alive, while furthering the same old original vision narrative.

Upconverting a laserdisc master of an entire movie trilogy all the way up to 4k just doesn’t sound like something anyone would do.

Yeah which is why they’d probably just shove it on there as a bonus again, and be like ‘hey kids look at how lame this old version was before we fixed it’

They are an off white marble sort of colour to resemble ancient Greek or Roman statues.

The stupid size and design problem from Prometheus is laughable though. Should have watched their own movie before making prequels… where have we heard that story before. I still remember this version:

Yes the inclusion is pretty poor, and overall the Dagobah part is poor. But the Luke rage scene is good so I let it slide. Would the structure of ROTJ allow for a new sister character? It’s not clear. But you could trim a lot to allow for it.

Last Album Listened To

Dreamrider by Lazerhawk - it’s a return to the slow chilled out Visitors style sounds rather than the expected pedal to the metal tunes, but hey I can dig it.

You should check out the original British version, Blow-Up (1966).

Yep it’s another one in the big movie queue!

All in all I liked parts of this but it misses the energy of TOS; its heart, its exuberance and most of all its inherent silliness.
But the the few seconds of Bones here and there are priceless.

It helps if you think about the underlying themes of rebirth. The pace, the imagery, the whole feeling of stiff limbo. VGER is trying to be reborn, just as Bones, Spock and Kirk are trying to get their mojo back. By the end they all come back together after all the years apart and solve a classic TOS style plot, while becoming their old TOS selves. Then you can get into the following trilogy where the real good stuff waits.

4K restoration on Star Wars

I am the least tech savvy person around and the DEED Facebook page has damn how-to right on the top. Just do it. The endless speculation is just embarrassing at this stage.

Eh. He thanks George and doesn’t mention anything specific enough, further confusing the matter and blurring the line. It used to be called just Star Wars but so what, that’s a minor 1980s difference. Keeping it living memory is only going to get harder from here on out.

Eraserhead is Lynch’s funniest movie.

Body Double 3/5

Blow Out 4/5

RoboCop 5/5

I think everyone here has probably spent more money on Star Wars than is necessary over time regardless of format. And we would do it again if they let us.

What is wrong with Attack of the Clones?
Time

Is this a real journalist writing? They discuss the infamous Empire Magazine review …but then say they only gave it 4/5 (it was a full 5) and then link to the later revised article where things were retroactively changed to cover the embarrassment. Good work.
