Episode IX Discussion <strong><em>Spoiler Thread</em></strong>
Time

Abrams has no vision of his own, all of his movies have been recreations of the pop culture he enjoyed as a kid. This is the worst possible choice, we already had a remake of the first SW, and the last thing we need is a remake of ROTJ. I still don’t know why so many consider him a good director. Seriously, fuck JJ Abrams.

Episode VIII Discussion *SPOILER THREAD*
Time

It’s becoming increasingly apparent that the sequel trilogy will end up being nothing but a rehash of the OT, imitating the visual elements and story which is a great shame. I wanted new stories to be told, to have new experiences, make new discovries about the Force, instead Disney has chosen to play it safe and retell the same story we’ve seen lots of times before. I still can’t believe TFA has received so much praise as it’s nothing but a remake of the first SW movie. Say what you will about the prequels, but at least Lucas tried to do something different.

Star Wars Shadows of the Empire soundtrack
Time

I found the complete soundtrack available on Youtube and gave it a listen. Amazing score by Joel McNeely IMO, though I read McNeely himself wasn’t happy with the end product and that it’s one of his least favourite works. Myself I disagree, I think it’s a pretty strong score and it’s a real shame the music is now part of the Legends continuity, and I would love McNeely to do more SW music.

Any other fans here?

STAR WARS: REBELS - New animated series
Time

My take on the Bendu: I didn’t really like the character as he pretty much ended up being another one of those “neutral” characters who only help the good guys. He called himself the One in the Middle, either meaning he didn’t draw from the light or the dark OR he used aspects of both, which makes him a bit of a hypocrite. I would have loved to see him interact with Maul but when the opportunity presented itself he disappeared.

STAR WARS: REBELS - New animated series
Time

IMO Season 3 has been the best season of Rebels so far. I’m disappointed Ezra’s dabbling with the dark side storyline was dropped as soon as it began, but it’s a kid’s show I guess, I really liked Ezra’s darker persona. Sabine finally lived up to to her status as a Mandalorian, and we got lots of Mandalorian content which is awesome (don’t know why everyone here is so dismissive of Mandalorians) and it looks like we’re about to get a lot more Mandalorian content which really has me pumped up for next season. I think the best way to end SWR is by having Ezra and Kanan sacrifice themselves thus lending credence to Yoda’s statement that Luke is the last Jedi.

I’m really pumped about the next two episodes because like I said earlier I’m a sucker for all things Mandalorian and these will be full of Mandalorian lore.

Rogue One * <em>Spoilers</em> * Thread
Time

Finally saw Rogue One. I enjoyed it way more than I expected and way more than TFA (seriously, f*ck J.J. Abrams). My expectations were pretty low after the sour taste in my mouth left by TFA, plus the fact that this movie was directed by Gareth Edwards whose 2014 Godzilla I hate, but once the credits started rolling I felt something I never expected which was feeling pumped about the first Star Wars movie. Almost everything worked flawlessly, the pacing, the music, the story, the characters… it all just clicked. This is hands down the best SW since the OT.

Single Pass Regrade of Grindhouse ESB

Could somebody upload this torrent elsewhere that isn’t usenet or tehparadox? I really want to get my hands on this gem but the torrent file from myspleen doesn’t download.

OK, a few days have passed and the file still doesn’t download.

Try port-forwarding or allowing your download client through your firewall and maybe also through your anti-virus.

I’ve tried just about everything and the damn torrent still won’t download, it doesn’t pick up seeds or anything.

Hey Dreamster, as much as I like this grading I really don’t like the sharpening, it looks unnatural. Could you please ditch it?

There was no sharpening applied the shots of the Cloud City platform. I didn’t like it either, and though it might sound arrogant, I thought it might be easier for someone who wants to tackle a multipass regrade to start from mine so I also left it out to keep it more “pure”.

Good to know. I guess your regrade of the Grinshouse will be the best version of TESB until we get poita’s restoration.

Wow, this looks really cool, I must say this looks even better than what Neverar posted as his screenshots have very subtle blues. Hope I can see a 720p file of this pop up in the 'spleen.

😃 I did some regrading for fun (I’m not a professional), trying to match a frame from Leia’s kiss scene to this frame from jedi1.net:

I think it doesn’t look too bad, but I don’t know if it’s consistent as well: I’d like to see what it would look like with DrDre’s tool.

Personally I like this warmer regrade. Would like to see Dr. Dre’s take on this.
