4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

I guess 2020 isn’t so bad. I’ll be 47 years old and should still have reasonably good eyesight and hearing. I just don’t want them to take too long. I don’t want the OUT in 4K when I can only see in SD. At least it would be available for others.

Is it possible that Star Wars could go into the Disney Vault for a while and when it comes out it will have a full restoration? Isn’t Disney big on restoring their own classics and releasing them that way? I could see a release marketed by Disney that way being a huge seller.

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

The same for box office totals. A movie that has both highly favorable reviews and performs well at the box office is pretty indicative that is good, but there are a few box office bombs that I love. This year I really liked Ghost in the Shell, Atomic Blonde, and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. All three failed at the box office and got mildly favorable reviews. I still love them.

My ranking:
★★★★★

  1. The Empire Strikes Back DESPECIALIZED
  2. Star Wars DESPECIALIZED
  3. Return of the Jedi DESPECIALIZED

So you like despecialized movies more than the actual originals? Huh.

I certainly like watching them over any official version. The picture and sound quality is miles ahead of the official product and the SE changes have been erased to the point that I can’t tell they were ever there.

I’m not talking about versions or what is out there but what the movies actually are. It’s like saying my favorite movies are The Terminator Special Edition DVD and Terminator 2 Skynet Edition. When ranking films it’s odd to see them specifically categorized as despecialized versions and not actually the movies that were actually made.

The special editions changes throw off the tone for me. I consider them to be completely different movies.

I don’t think that’s what he’s getting at. It’s weird that you choose a specific unofficial preservation rather than just saying “the theatrical cuts”.

The despecialized version is the best version I have access to at this time. I only have the theatrical on VHS and of course the GOUT DVDs.

hey, your ranking is pretty good, but is it a 5 star worth ranking? unsure. (you were rating your own ranking, correct?)

I tried editing the post to get it formatted correctly, but it kept reverting to that. I thought the rotten tomatoes rankings were interesting.
