Unless TLJ & Ep. IX prove so stellar that they make up for its flaws and elevate it above itself, I’ll likely never watch TFA again. Still, my desire to rewatch TFA is greater than my desire to read the same warmed-over anti-TFA diatribe over-and-over again.

A friendly bit of advice: If your argument includes mentions of “fan service” and “Mary Sue”, it’s safe to say it’s all been said before, hence you can spare yourself the effort of saying it again.

friendly advice: you should get used to it, because you will hear it a lot, because besides “fan service” there is really nothing significant to say about this movie. seriously, poster for tfa should be in encyclopedias right next to the term “fan service”, because you really cant find better example

Some people: WHY ARE ALL THE STAR WARS CHARACTERS IN A STAR WARS MOVIE?!?!?!!???
Other people; WHY WAS LUKE BARELY IN THE MOVIE!?!!???!!?
Me: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

you somehow didnt get my point - that people seem to have pink glasses filled with nostalgia tears

so you liked the movie because of the characters? like marey sue? or hux’s cringy speech to apathetic stormtroopers. and can you tell me which part of snoke’s character did you like the most? and i dont blame you that you dont like maz kanata. i barely remember her too…did you also like the map to luke skywalker? why do you need a map for a space that is filled with 99,99% of vacuum anyway? with dotted line from one side of the galaxy to the other? what about just coordinates? or that it allegedly didnt match any known charted system while it was segment as big as third of the galaxy…does even anything make sense in this movie?

i love the apologetic phrase that they “played safe”. they didnt play safe, they played plain stupid. how could they have thought that there is even someone who doesnt know the original trilogy so that he has to be introduced to the stuff everybody know? you have star wars references everywhere. and even if there is some hermit who doesnt know star wars, he wouldnt care about new stuff if he doesnt know the old one. if it was solid good, everyone would accept it…but first and foremost there are milions of fans who will not forgive you that you are showing them rebels running from the empire, death star blowing up another planet, trench run, droid with very important plans etc. all over again. i just cant comprehend that there are even people who defend this stupidity as “playing safe”

and i am really really sad that with all those spin-offs and animated series on the way i will most probably see rebels and empire beating their heads up to episode 9 all over again…

If anyone has any covers by the superb ‘Coov’, ‘Ell the Ewok’, ‘DarkJedi’, ‘ReverendBeastly’, ‘Darth Solo’, ‘Yoda Is Your Father’, ‘FusionAddict’ and ‘Yourfriendkaysar’ please post them up - along with any other decent sets/covers/discs/inserts etc by anyone else on here - it’d be a shame if their quality covers and art were lost over time (and to old broken/deleted links and obsolete photo servers etc)…

.

second that…and thanks for the pics and links oojason!

One another note about the czech dub. One member named pittrek replied to my original post and send me both czech dub versions for every Harmy’s mkv file and I must say that they fits perfectly, so far I didnt noticed any desync…however that’s not the case for the dub syncs included in the actual mkvs. Some parts are so horribly out of sync that it is practically unwatchable. Especially in ROTJ (Yoda closes his mouth, then you hear him talking…i noticed that one part of Endor battle is about 2 sec desync…etc).
So i would strongly recommend to ask pittrek if he would be willing to include his dub syncs to the mkvs or in some other way made them public, because it would be shame (for czech viewers) to not include them.

Actually I’m finding lots of sync problems in both versions of the dub (I don’t usually pay much attention to lip sync because that can simply be off in dubs, but the lip sync is way off IMO and the sound effects are off quite a bit too). I think I’m going to try to sort this out once and for all and get a solid sync, starting with pittrek’s sources.

and do you mean the pittreks syncs? really? sound effects are off? thats strange i really didnt encounter any desync, but so far i was mainly checking bits where you can clearly match the sound like shots, clanking, saber clashes, button push etc. mouth dont fit 100% with any dub…i was also mainly focusing on the second dub version. i will check the first one more thoroughly too

On the contrary, 4K would need 4 times the bandwidth to be of equal quality with 1080p, so upscaling 1080p to 4K would be pointless and would either result in pointlessly huge files, or reduced detail compared to the 1080p version due to compression.

As for the '95 Czech dubs (I actually recently discovered they were made for the 1995 THX VHS release, not the '97SE), I didn’t include them, because the translation is awful and I also always try to include the most original dubs possible. If anyone wants any alternate dubbing, they are, of course, welcome to mux them in themselves - the number of audio tracks is way too huge as it is, so I can’t include multiple dubs for each language on top of all that.

I’m actually thinking about releasing the next version with english tracks only and then including links for all the different dubs and instructions on how to add them.

yeah. that would be great.

to defend that dub: not sure why you think that the 92 has better translation. most of the lines are completely identical. but what matters more imho is casting and performance and in this aspect the second version is far superior…neverheless as i said it is the version which is without any doubt the most popular here

hello, my first post here. i was unable to find search function on this forum so maybe this doesnt exactly belong here. i have a question regarding dubbing versions. i am from czech republic and i always enjoyed our second vhs dubbing - it has many errors from translation, even some mismatches between characters, but it is wonderfully performed. i believe it was done for 1997 special edition so i understand why did you pick the previous version. however, does anybody know if there is a plan to add this dubb version too? i think i am not the only person from czech republic which would appreciate that, becouse this dubb version is very popular. i even have very good sounding cut of this dubb for gout (someone did it wonderfully before) but my video editing skills are very limited so i would be willing to share it.
