I wonder if the Leia scene could be sped up considerably, and made to look like it happened near instantly. Could be even while Kylo looks on, or right after he flies away.

Even more radically, though I’m not sure there’s enough footage. You could slow it down, flashing back and forth between Kylo staring at the explosion, and Leia’s face with her eyes closed. End the back and forth with her eyes opening. Then imediately, jump to 1.5x speed of her superman flight, none of her hand twitching or “unfreezing”. Kylo flying away could be right before she opens her eyes, right before she flies back, or right after (my rationalization is that at this point save her or kill her, he’s going to be broken by it.)

Bumping, a rush of responses to the post after mine left it in the dust 😉

1997 Special Edition Audio Mixes, GOUT-Synced

Just throwing this out there, as it may work alright - The TFM Audio Tool offers simple DTS encoding capabilities that may achieve what you’re looking for.

If you pm me the lossless files, I’ll encode them.

Otherwise, I suggest 2 variants of the DTS file.

File Based Playback (Computer): 16 bit, 44.1khz - Closest to original source.
DVD/BD Based Playback: 16bit, 48khz

We’re all crazy here.

We just don’t show it here.

That’s the unspoken rule.

The second unspoken rule is that if you feel like a victim from 2 or more people, you’re probably being taught something. Take the time. Figure out what it is.

(Unspoken rules tend to be difficult for ocd, adhd, etc. because there is nothing finite about whether it’s a rule or not. Just assume it is.)

STAR WARS: EP VI -RETURN OF THE JEDI &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>NOW IN PRODUCTION</strong>
Time

To be fair, I think that Kevin Smith Pre-marijuana did have a reasonable amount of artistic vision, and preserving the film as intended to be viewed might provide more benefits than expected. Ignoring all other aspects, the film includes so many actors/actresses that deserve to have their film history memorialized for their impact on our culture that the intersect should boost the importance of the film, despite its low position on the priority list of preserving films for each individual actor or actress.

I can’t be the only one slightly confused on how to comment on this thread in a way to actually further discussion. I think a lot of people were hoping to see a little bit more of a community involvement once the RotJ Thread was opened, similar to how the original Revisited was, as well as early stages of Empire. The difference is that the people that can actively help Ady already are if he’d like their help, and I get the feeling Ady finds these days that its easier to bounce ideas off of that team than to open it up to the masses. He also moves at a much faster pace and with far more honed skills. With as advanced in his techniques as he is, what used to seem a “breakthrough” that he would share with us is now an everyday thing not worth mentioning (to him, the rest of us would love to know, but it would make the project drag on forever). I miss feeling as involved, but I completely understand why. I just don’t know how to move the thread forward, and see a lot of other people seemingly in the same bind - Beyond donating, what can those of us not directly involved do to help? Is there a complete errors list that could be checked against?

Who? Snoke probably. But an angle from afar that leaves their height ambiguous could potentially have it be Luke too.
What and why? I just enjoy the concept of ending with Vader’s castle. It’s both commemorating the end of Anakin Skywalker’s story, and giving us a small amount of foreshadowing that he could still have influence on the future of Star Wars.

I don’t read books at all

Weird thing to brag about. Or even mention.

Weird thing to take issue with. The explanation of “I don’t read books” was just an explanation of why they, as a Star Wars fan, haven’t read any Star Wars books.

Hey, welcome to the Forum. Take a look around for a bit - you’ll find many new members have attempted to start similar projects. Perhaps someone is already doing what you’re looking for. The job may seem easy going in, but creating a truly unique new fan release that is very difficult to do considering the quality of work being done by various members here.

Otherwise, Good Luck.

*Hint: Asking for help in the first post, without laying out details of EXACTLY what you’d like to do, what you plan to include so far, etc. is unlikely to get your project much attention. Usually, members here judge whether to follow a project based on their belief that you are putting a lot of effort into it. So far you’ve shown only that you know the years in which the most prominently-changed "updates’ of Star Wars were released.

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

The galaxy isn’t able to be saved. It is a living breathing entity, constantly changing. The Jedi attempt to “Domesticate” the Force, the Sith like to “let it run free” (when they’re not hiding it, thus why their force powers are so cabin fevery).

Rey is balance. Rey shapes the force to her will only when necessary - there is no need for her to try and control or trap the Force. She has spent years alone, literally watching the world pass her by. Finally, she has reaches out and finds the Force available to grab ahold of. She keeps grabbing on, seeing how much further forward the force will pull her. Eventually she’ll feel safe enough to never let go.

Imagine that the Force is a treadmill. Jedi walk at slow speeds for the longest durations. Sith turn up the speed as high as they can, until they can barely keep up or get thrown off. Rey just uses the last speed it was set at every time, and keeps up with it. Ultimately, it’s about learning to control yourself versus learning to control your surroundings (for good or evil). For Luke to become her true teacher, he had to understand those things first. TLJ is the story of Luke learning that. In that moment of understanding, he grabbed onto the force with the purity and ease that Rey does. His body couldn’t handle that - only hers can.

Or that’s kinda the alignment perception I got from the film.

We’re all pretending the OT was all planned out at the beginning.

Honestly, TLJ going a completely different direction because it wasn’t planned out ahead of time is exactly what we got in Vader being Luke’s father, and Leia being his sister. The PT suffered from a lackluster continuity which was planned from the start - sure it was tweaked, but the story idea was there already.

Empire gave us a shocking ending, RotJ tried to match and failed. The prequels didn’t need to shock us the same way because we already knew the eventual outcome. Rogue One did great at offering a shocking ending, as well as a nice segway.

TFA attempted a different kind of shock ending, which was the cliffhanger with no payoff. While unexpected, it again failed to reach the originality level of ESB.

TLJ… succeeded in surprising us and telling a story in a different (very chaotic) way. As a single film, I can enjoy the frantic flow. Hopefully the next film won’t fall into the pitfall of RotJ and base itself on that same theme as a wow factor though, because i could never enjoy another film with this storytelling style.

He’s sitting on THE Jedi rock. I imagine that single place lets your project yourself. I will say though, I was disappointed in how they handled Luke’s wardrobe and hair. He needed to stay Hermit-like on Ach-To, and fight Ben in his Master outfit. I REALLY hated the split cloak. It made certain scenes confusing. Originally I thought the Tree fire was in the past.

Also, anyone have a problem with Yoda’s stumpy right ear?
