Marjorie Eaton with chimp eyes looks like “a guy in a cheap mask”, whilst Ian McDiarmid in cheap ROTS makeup looks “remastered”.
I don’t share that opinion, either.
Both have make up effects applied, the original holds up poorly whereas Ians make up looks a lot more organic and believable. In fact while watching the original version i always felt the emperors face was about to melt off at any stage of the movie.
Well, if you compare Revisited Palpatine to OUT Palpatine, of course the former’s gonna look superior to the latter.
I assumed that was the comparison :p
Unless there is yet another change i haven’t seen.
