I fail to understand how TFA (which features the death of a major classic character, the maiming of a new character, depictions of psychic torture, and the wholesale destruction of multiple inhabited planets) is more family friendly than TPM or AOTC. I might give you ROTS, but even that had incredibly childish humor throughout most of the first half, and Anakin’s turn is done in the most family-friendly way it could have been done. (Though the immolation scene and Order 66 are probably less family-friendly than anything in TFA.)

Not enjoying the movie is one thing (and I do understand and accept most of the criticisms of the film, I just wasn’t as bothered by them as most were), but I honestly don’t understand people who think Star Wars has become more Disney-fied since the sale. If anything, it’s gotten darker. Any “Disneyfication” present in TFA I’d chalk up to Abrams more than Disney itself.

The tone

ChainsawAsh said:

Since I wasn’t around when TFA came out (and to possibly re-rail this thread a bit), I mostly enjoyed TFA, rehashes and all (and I say that as someone who’s very critical of ROTJ for its rehashiness).

It was a necessary palate cleanser after the dumpster fires of the prequels, introduced two protagonists I already have a lot of interest and investment in (Rey and Poe) and an antagonist that is compelling and frightening due to how unstable and unsure of himself he is (Kylo), and set the stage for something truly fresh and unique to come after.

It’s not perfect, of course. For one, I hate Starkiller Base and think the movie should have ended with Rey imprisoned on Kylo’s Star Destroyer, with the rescue attempt happening amid a battle between the New Republic fleet (which would have been decimated) and the First Order as they staged a surprise orbital bombardment of the New Republic capitol rather than on a snow planet that for some reason is a hyperspace Death Star. For two, the actual politics of the Resistance/Republic/First Order were woefully underestablished (or not established at all). For three, I thought Finn was poorly handled - a defecting stormtrooper shouldn’t be a bumbling comic relief character.

But overall? Better than any of the prequels, and better than ROTJ.

What you say are dumpster fires (ok episode 1 and 2 are bad lol) I enjoy more than this new family friendly disney mainstream film made entirely just for the box office

I hadn’t heard about the missing frame. Where is it? Is it really any worse than R2’s moving restraining bolt or the duplicate R5 or the Jawa with human arms?

Are you sure you want to know about it? Once you see it, you can’t look at the scene anymore without seeing it…

On Hoth, when Han’s on top of the Falcon getting it ready to evacuate, some rebel troops run by on the ground. Because the troops are fairly fast-moving, it’s easier to see if you focus on the troops and not on Han (not the normal way to watch that scene). A frame gets dropped right in the middle, not at a scene change or anything.

Interesting

Wow, I can’t wait to see how this sentence ends.

That was the whole sentence moron. Sorry I don’t feel like putting a period.

Or a comma.

This isn’t some business letter.

You’ll never get hired with that attitude. The correct attitude is “write for the job you want, not the job you have.”

Stop acting like a middle school “career” teacher, Frink.

CatBus said:

It’s an error in the 1980 film. The Despecialized Edition reproduces it exactly as it was.

Really? They messed that up in the actual movie? I have only seen the originals a couple times. Just made despecialized haven’t even watched them yet

Near the beginning of the movie with the Wampa when Luke gets his lightsaber and ignites it to cut his feet out, I swear I hear his lightsaber ignite twice in the Despecialized Edition. To me that’s horrible. Is this a true error or just in my head?

Harmy ESB error??? V2.0
Time

Frank your Majesty said:

  1. Asking in the corresponding project thread might expose your question to the people most qualified to answer it.
  2. If you have to start a separate thread, at least do it in the right subforum.
  3. ESB Despecialized comes with many audio tracks. You might want to specify which of them has this problem.

Not sure where to find this exact thread you’re mentioning

As far as I know, Criterion cases are the same height as standard cases, but even if they are a bit larger, simply cut the cardboard stock to accommodate whatever size cases you are going to use.

Tnx!

Cardboard stock, paper, printed artwork, tape, spray adhesive, x-acto knife, a ruler, and a lot of patience!

Does this work for criterion cases too?

dude98ish,

I’m afraid I don’t want the files shared. I hope the community will cooperate. There are plenty of other covers you can download… or design them yourself! It’s rewarding.

Best,
Ron

😦 I’m crap at designing and especially have no clue where to even start for blu ray or criterion…what do I have to do to prove that I’m not a scamming selling scumbag?

You may find some very similar covers, discart, inserts, boxsets etc to what you are seeking in here mate, or maybe stumble upon others you also like too, or just give you some ideas or inspiration…

EDIT: My bad. I found them. Feel stupid! Happy New Year.

Hey do you still have the files for the original criterion covers and the inside art? I have my own version of everything else and only want the cover and inside art. If you do can you PM me and not post to be so people don’t use the files to sell them? Tnx

I have asked several now hoping at least one has the files :p

Can you give the exact dimensions of the slipcases? I got them printed and assembled and they are not the correct size. I’m sure it has to do with the print settings on the PDF. I printed them at 100% of original size but it didn’t turn out right. If I have the measurements I can see that they are correct before I cut and assemble. Thanks.

Hey Ron! These are awesome. Just working on getting mine printed out.

The only problem I’m having is that I have the standard Bluray case that has the extra blue bar across the top (hopefully I’m explaining that in a way that makes sense). Wondering if you could send out the covers slightly adjusted for that size of slip cover…

These look absolutely fantastic! Thank you so much for your work.
Question for you or anyone else who may know: Has anyone tried to make somewhat of a guide on how to print the outer boxes for the set? Where to go, what to buy, etc. I assume I won’t be able to print these at home on my regular inkjet with regular paper, so what do I need?

Anyone here have the criterion box set files? I only want the outside and inside cover. I have my own version of everything else. If you have the files can you PM me so the links aren’t posted publicly and people won’t use them to sell cases? Thanks!
