4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

I’m waiting until Celebration before I put much faith in this report.

I would think Disney would have jumped on releasing the OUT after purchasing LucasFilm, but they didn’t.

The 40th anniversary is certainly a plausible reason they waited but I need more than this rumour. Only a few months more to find out for sure. If they don’t announce it then…we still have the 50th anniversary.

Cant find mds file in the new 2.7 version of the Star wars.

You can create a new folder named CERTIFICATE, it can be empty, as it was before.
Then use Image burn to create the .ISO & .MDS files. The CERTIFICATE folder has
no purpose in these projects but some Apps & players expect it to be there.
If I remember correctly 2.6 had the same issue and this is what I did.

This was excellent help! I’m new to this and this was exactly what I needed.

Your assistance was VERY MUCH appreciated!

Opening Crawl for Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Time

There is no way (or reason) they do this.

I concur. The episodic films do follow a formula and they won’t break that.

I’d say that crawl feels pretty on point. I wonder what the space shot will entail as I also can’t see the crawl happening and then just going right into Rey and Luke.

Most pointless SE change?
Time

Kind of in topic, but with all the changes George made to “improve” the original films, the one thing he never did that I never understood involves the wampa cave after Luke dismembered the wampa and goes to leave. You hear his lightsaber shut off but it’s clearly still on. Either edit out the blade or remove the sound effect.

ROTJ is the best Star Wars film... discuss!
Time

It had the best space battle of any of the Original Trilogy, and I was young enough when it first came out that I loved the Ewoks.

We also have a confident and capable Luke who isn’t whining so that’s also something else that this movie had over the others.

Star Wars moving forward without Ms. Fisher
Time

I cannot understand people that complain about “fan service”. How fucking insane that the producers of the Star Wars movies would include stuff for the fans of Star Wars.

And to include the Death Star in a movie whose plot revolves around the stealing of the Death Star plans? Why would they do that?

I can only wonder what these threads would have looked like if they were around after the release of ROTJ. “So much stuff was included just for fans of the other two movies. Han Solo coming back again and another Death Star!”

Fuck all, there is a thing like plot. Not everything is just “fan service”, and if your not a fan, just don’t watch the movies.

Nothing at all in this post about Leia (RIP Carrie Fisher) but that seems par for this thread currently.

I still haven’t seen any Harmy despecialized versions, but from what I can tell he’s mostly based his footage on the Blurays. Correct me if I’m wrong.

Not having worked on project, his editions are based on a variety of sources, including the blu-rays, laserdisc transfers, scanned 35mm prints and the GOUT (Georges Original Unaltered Trilogy) DVDs that were included with one of the Blu-ray releases.

There’s a fascinating video on YouTube that shows what went into it.

Name EPISODE VIII Thread
Time

I think Episode VIII will be Legacy of the Force.

The question of who Rey’s parents are is something a lot of people were discussing after seeing the movie and I particularly like one of them (keeping it vague just in case it turns out true and anyone wants to go into Episode VIII with as little information / speculation possible) and that would be a fitting title.

It would also work for Episode IX as well and might possibly be better as a bookend and setting up the next trilogy.

I do like the “Knights of Ren” title though.

Are the Prequels Even Worth Watching Once?
Time

I have a hunch that Episodes 8 and 9 are going to really do some heavy lifting to redeem to a degree the prequels, and I’d recommend checking out the anti-cheese edits next time you have an urge to see one of the prequels.

With that being said, I agree that the Clone Wars really did do Anakin more justice than the prequels ever did.

What if Disney decided to remake the OT?
Time

Won’t happen. Disney/LucasFilm is intent on moving forward with the franchise and do the Anthology films.

More likely is that they take a break from the Saga films after nine and do a run of Anthologies . I wouldn’t be adverse to them doing a trilogy set during the Old Republic and make some of those concepts cannon like they’re doing with Thrawn in Rebels.

The Star Wars universe is vast and it just doesn’t make sense to reboot the Skywalker saga with so many other stories to be told.

Harmy's Despecialized Intro Blocked By Fox
Time

towne32 said:

I assume you’re just describing a hunch, but I don’t think I’ve seen any evidence that would suggest one way or the other. It would be a bizarre business deal, if so, but not impossible.

Oh yeah, it’s a total hunch and assumption on my part. Disney has been killing it in regards to franchises, whether it be Star Wars, Marvel or their live action adaptations. They’ve been giving fans what they want and they love money.

Of course, Fox could still be retaining distribution rights or there could be a myriad of other reasons why having the original cuts of the movies in true HD not available.

I just don’t buy that it’s too costly to do because it’s Disney, or that it’s too difficult. I don’t have the knowledge or skills to pull it off but LucasFilm certainly does. Otherwise, a group of impassioned and talented fans have pulled off a feat that those powerhouses have deemed impossible (kudos to those talented fans anyhow).

“Tora! Tora! Tora!” (1970) 3 1/2 out of 5 stars

Dry but well made (for it’s time) docudrama about the December 7th 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor. With the model work, I kept expecting Godzilla to pop out of the sea at any moment.

I really enjoy Tora! Tora! Tora!. Much better than Pearl Harbor.

Just wanted to mention to the regulars here that GigoloJoe actually made a few discussion-type posts before asking for an invite.

I would like to say there’s no need to explain, but I know better. Beggars can’t be choosers.

What?

I’m guessing your post was to circumvent people from jumping in to say “Why did they get an invite but I didn’t”.

My point was that it’s too bad to have to do that. If I was wrong in my assumption, I apologize.

Just watched Midnight Special. It was a Tim Drake and worth checking out. Kylo Ren and Uncle Owen are in it too so there’s your Star Wars connection.
