The Blogs have been around for longer than these posts were, which started in 2012.

Our members have always known they will get early access. We welcome all fans, but we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for their support.

They've waited 4 years or longer, while some of you have just joined.

Everyone will see the work eventually.

Team Negative1

 As long as I at some point get to sit with my son and watch the greatest movie of all time the way I remember seeing it, that is all I could ask for.  We're all truly blessed to even have this happening.  

 Amen!

Obviously, this is exciting.  A 4th-generation print of Star Wars, the way it was intended to be ultimately seen (back then).  Obviously the special effects will blend better, there will be a healthy amount of grain...I get excited just thinking about it! 

Have been following this one, and can't wait to see it.  You have done a service to all Star Wars fans.  This will be the ultimate version.  Best,

THX-1138 Original Warner Brothers Cut (1971) DVD-5

I made a reconstruction of the 1971, using the Bluray and laserdisc, synced up to the 1971 audio. It's on myspleen if you would like to take a look, but it's obviously not the real deal.

 That's very interesting; I would love to check it out.

I call it the 1971 Director's Cut because the official story (according to what I read) is that the '78 version is exactly the version that George Lucas handed in in 1971 before the studio played with it.

However, given George's penchant for remembering things a little differently than they happened, I guess we can't be 100% sure.

I was wondering if anyone has ever done this project or would consider doing it.  I think this is a historically important film in its original version.  I have seen the original cut (not the laserdisc cut) available from a 16mm print, but it's in several very, very, very large files and it may be rough.

I don't have the resources, but for someone who does, may be a worthwhile thing to throw together....

P.S. And my apologies if this topic has been covered before.

You sound like a really pleasant person, someone who has a lot of friends.  Forgive me if I have better things to do with my time than argue with someone like you (and I don't mean as a homosexual, but as a person)

Well, in Christian-land, we believe that certain things are good and other things are bad (i.e. we assign value judgments). 

On the topic of homosexual sex, we believe it is immoral and bad.

Yeah and on a bad day you think the pope is Jesus Christ.

 At least I recovered from my psychological illness and became a decent human being.

If your child does something bad, you might dislike what they did,  but you would still love them right?  

 And that is the crux of the Christian argument on a wide variety of issues.

God's word on homosexuality isn't very benevolent.

 True, because it's not good. 

But can you find anywhere in the Bible where God criticizes homosexuals for anything other than actually PRACTICING homosexuality?

I don't think that you can.

The Movies You Would Like To See Made (Not SW)

As much as i would like a retro classic Bond, with a harder edge it won't happen.  I don't think the screenwriters can balance the charm and wit along with the violence.

Would be interesting to see Craig try to pull it off though.  

 They can't (balance the charm and wit along with the action, that is).

We don't live in a sophisticated society anymore.  That carries over into even Bond movies.  Not even the music is going to be as classy as the classic Connery Bonds. 

You would need a real dream team at the helm to go against pretty much every prevailing current trend to deliver a quality Bond movie again.

Here's a Brahms clip.  As a bonus, the conductor looks like The Emperor:

I have been obsessed with the 19th century composer Brahms for some time now.  I know that technically other composers are better (Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven come to mind), but I just really enjoy the Brahms sound.

The best classic rock album of all time.

I've been listening to LPs for a long time.  Own a very high fidelity 1960s turntable.  The sound on an orchestral recording completely blows away anything you might hear from a CD.  Pop music sounds terrific, too.
