The Last Jedi: Official Review and Opinions Thread ** SPOILERS **
Time

My post from the old thread that got deleted…

Just got back from seeing this, WOW was it bad! I had hoped they would of fixed some of the problems people had with The Force Awakens & Rogue One but they’ve totally ignored everyone criticism. This saga has now firmly shifted it’s vision & tone in a new direction that isn’t for me. I’m no longer interested in these characters or where the story goes from here, so I wont be going to the cinema to see the next chapter. RIP Star Wars
2/5

Cringeworthy comedy
General Hux pantomime villain
Luke milking an alien udder’s
Super Leia
Ugly puppet yoda
Snoke throw away villain #1
Phasma throw away villain #2
Luke throw away Hero #1
bad, bad, bad… Plus many other monments that left me shaking my head.

DUNE 3 HOUR CUT
Time

Out of all the Dune fanedits Redux is easily the slickest and most professionally done. I doubt anyone will top it. The pacing, editing, structure an FX are damn near perfect… the amount of effort thats gone into this really shows.
5/5

Superman I-III extended TV cuts: Where have the preservations gone?
Time

Sorry about the delay but I’ve been sick all week with the flu.
Anway here’s some more detail about both tapes.

Superman III - ITV (Thames) MAY-07-1990
http://imgur.com/a/kI6Q6
The 1990 broadcast is the better quality of the two but isnt complete. It’s missing 15 secs from the intro and 20 mins from the main film (from when the blind man loses his dog, until when clark kent arrives at the school reunion).

Superman III - ITV (HTV) SEP-05-1985
http://imgur.com/a/NGlM9
The 1985 broadcast is missing 45secs from the intro but the rest of the film is complete (with comercials). Quality wise it’s not as good as the 1990 brodcast.

Here are some unfiltered samples of both tapes.
1990 = https://mega.nz/#!31ZEyIqQ!0A8M3ey8T4I1EHyuqwCkkb5FRqBTAh_p8wx95pZKS_8
1985 = https://mega.nz/#!OopmiLpL!RVjs9m1TSYdk0MLLZhlnFqNFarRphIXuMSxDuZnj1OQ

Obviously they both need some work to bring the best out of them e.g. Avisynth filters, denoised, colour corrected, etc.
If anyone whats to help just let me know.

You might want to hold off doing a Superman 3 just yet as a I have a higher quality source tape (Superman III - ITV MAY-07-1990). I also have another tv broadcast coming in the post this week. I’ll add more info soon.

More info please…

I’ve now received the other tape and it turns out to be the first UK broadcast of Superman III - ITV (HTV) SEP-05-1985. I believe both tapes are higher quality then the current fanmade releases on Mysleen. I hope to upload some pics or a video sample over the weekend.

Star Wars UK Broadcast dates
Time

I just got these today…
Star Wars Unknown date Sky Movies
The Empire Strikes Back Premiere 25th Dec 1988 HTV West
Return Of The Jedi Premiere 26th Dec 1989

Sadly the star wars VHS got caught in my VCR, so the opening crawl has tracking issues. I’m scared to rewind the tape to the start now. Also there seems top have been a technical fault during the broadcast as the screen cuts to the sky movies logo for a few secs just before they escape the death star.

The other two tapes work fine and they include commercials (well I only checked up to the first set).

THE FORCE AWAKENS (Episode VII) Discussion *SPOILER THREAD* See OP For Trailer/Teaser Links--Trailer is out!
Time

Does anyone know the crawl text, I missed the first few lines.

Can someone explain to me what happened to the crashed tie fighter?
Finn pulled Poe’s jacket from the tie wreck and then it just sinks into the sand and a big dust cloud goes up into the air. It was really weird scene and didn’t really make sense to me.

Kylo ren’s hissy fits were hilarious.

Cliffhanger (1993) on TBS WED July 15th, censored for TV version?
Time

I can confirm that they showed a censored version

  • gun shot entry /exit wounds cut
  • Fight scenes edited down
  • f-bombs cut or re-dubbed
  • Base jumpers have been cut from the film

I'm actually amazed they're still showing films this way in 2015. Hopefully they will rebroadcast Die Hard 2 again in the near future.
