ROTJ is the best Star Wars film... discuss!

How could they even think of changing the holograms! I think the timed/cut vader breathing/fighting is just brilliant and the action is realistic, that is what sets these films apart. I met Dave prowse in the city toy shop and he was a giant in full vader costume. Obviously he was signing stuff but that was on the back of Jedi. Jedi will always have a strong place in my heart and it’s easily better than anything that has been made since…

If Vader was in full costume at the toy shop, then that wasn’t Dave Prowse. Dave never did any of the costume stuff for the promotional events like that. Kermit Eller is the best known of the ones that did the Vader events at the time. Not sure if he did the jedi tour though

Now do you believe me and you think i’m the jerk. jerks

This will be the final time i will reply to anything you post. BIG mistake calling me a jerk. And please don’t try to weasel you way out of that because i am the only one that has replied since you posted that

Who cares what this guy has said it has NOTHING to do with this project. Even so, what is the big deal? It’s some guy offering to explain about Harmy’s Blu-Rays through a PM. Harmy’s edits have been talked about in the bloody media outlets for gods sake. And it’s no different that someone saying “I’ll PM you about them”, or similar, on these forums. They are public forums that anyone can see,.

And making multiple posts where you are acting like a HUGE jerk yourself has not done yourself any favours. And just in case you try to remove your posts and try to deny it, i have screen captured your latest multiple posts.

Edit: Oh i see you have already started removing you posts. Shame i didn’t manage to capture all of the multiple one after another posts you made, but i managed to grab a few

Battle Of Yavin Color Corrections
Time

Ronster said:

Ok well it’s a mixture of Sources so it is a bit tricky. I also went through and tweaked saturation levels because of Neverar greats comment. And I re-rendered the clip. But now I have to redo the saturation levels on some of the cockpits but the colors are the same. Anyway. I intend to keep moving forward.

Look at the Special edition for the cockpits and the original Film not sure which source it was for the Yavin Base. There is no Magic Lut it’s done shot by shot.

Ronster, please do not take credit for someone else’s colour grading. You are using images taken from Revisited (all the cockpit shots above)and not once in here have you mentioned that this is what you are doing or using as a source. The most you have done is altered the red hue slightly and made them look very desaturated. so saying that you are doing the colour correction and then comparing them to the blu-rays, is not exactly true. I aslo have a feeling that the ships leaving Yavin shot in your first post is also the revisited version

sorry but why the silence?

Because i like making you suffer

I laughed, but then I read his last post, and I think you aren’t making him suffer enough.

Well i was going to release ESB:R next month, but i think i will leave that until 2020 just to make him suffer more after his comment 😉

Now everyone will think it is coming next month.

OH SHIT!!!

DISCLAIMER: That was NOT in any way a pointer to the actual release date. 😉

Sorry this is the wrong thread, idk where else to put this question. For your Prequel edits, are you going to have Anakin come with the Jedi to Naboo towards the end of TPM? I always thought it was really dumb how they brought him into a warzone.

what the clone wars the lost missions they are flat out retarded in that

Please don’t use the term “retarded” like that in here please.

Those aren’t screens in the second pic, they’re windows. They’d insert a starfield behind him in post.

I know they are windows. i was talking about the screens set up outside. They used Hires screen for many of the background elements instead of solely replying on green screen. But, if this was an actual filming session either the screen would be turned on or there would be a green screen. You would not film with a grey background because it would be ridiculous to do so if you needed to insert a background.

Thanks!

The video offers yet more proof that Disney/LFL approached Tarkin two ways. One, by having Guy Henry stand in front of a blue-screen wearing a headcam rig, to produce a CGI Peter Cushing; the other, by having Henry on set in full costume and makeup, to play the role without worrying about CGI at all.

Here’s Henry as Tarkin in the CGI motion-capture rig:

And here’s Guy Henry on set, playing Tarkin via simple recasting:

Here’s hoping we get to see that latter version of the film at some point.

It’s most likely early camera tests and rehearsal footage (notice no screens behind him are switched on). There’s also a shot of him in full costume with a Leia stand in which was never to be part of the movie. They most likely got him to act out the scenes in full gear for the CG techs to nail the lighting

So…will this edit effect Season 3 of Rebels?

Yes, the Rebels of Phoenix squadron will be tasked with completing the Wampa arm scene for this edit. Dave Filoni just tweeted it.

Oh, so that’s where this rumour started then. Thanks to this i’ve had a tonne of messages/ emails asking if it’s true Dave Filoni is now involved in this project. I’m surprised at how many thought that this could actually be true. So, to put the record straight, NO, there is no truth to this whatsoever.

Wake me up when something new happens.

Sadly, i think it’s going to be an annual thing from now on.

Alderaan, before completing your over-length review ( well one long criticism really), maybe you should watch the movie again because so many of your criticisms are based on you either misinterpreting something, missing something or just getting facts wrong.

Take this complaint for example:

Alderaan said:

And what about the bizarre scene when Krennic arrives on Scarif? The commanding officer arrives with orders to dig up every one of Galen Erso’s communications, but how does he order his officers to do that exactly? In case you missed it, I will tell you, because I noticed it during the film: Krennic doesn’t look any of the imperials in the eye. He doesn’t even break stride on his way over to his penthouse view of Space Bahamas. He literally walks into the room, fails to acknowledge anyone, gives orders to nobody in particular, and hastily makes for the big window so he can look out at the pretty blue sky.

Really?

When Krennic enters, an officer addresses him.

Officer - "Director Krennic, what brings you to Scarif?“
Krennic - " Galen Urso. I want every dispatch, every transmission he has ever sent called up for inspection”

It’s very clear that he is addressing this officer. He doesn’t need to look at this guy for us to know who he is giving his orders to.

Then you call the Vader scene pointless filler? Well it isn’t. Krennic gets Vader involved. He has just had the Death Star taken away from him by Tarkin. He needs Vader. He needs him to use his influence with the Emperor to get his station back. He is a desperate man and will do anything to regain the Death Star. And when Vader refuses, his downfall is set in motion. If this scene didn’t happen then it would look like Krennic had just given up the second tarkin took over, which would have been bad writing 😉

Merry Christmas everyone.

As for the Death Star plans, they are likely being changed back to the original for ANH:R HD ( Rogue One fixed the continuity error with the dish being on the equator in the one line about them being the “original plans”, so the dish placement was revised in the later schematics) and any mention of the death star removed from Ep 2

I doubt this will be the case given the poor offering on the Force Awakens Blu-Ray. I did not bother to buy it I contemplated getting the later repackaged version with the supposed Chewie ripping off the arms if Unkar Plutt or whatever his name is but it was cut short just like they did for escaping Maz Katana’s castle.

The full scene is on the blu-ray. It was the promo material, prior to the 3d blu-ray’s release that had the scene cut before chewie rips his arm off.
