I have a hard time deciding which of the 4K77 versions that I prefer. There is merit to both v.1.0 and 1.4. The latter of course looks more natural and probably closer to the negatives. But I really like the visceral and raw look of v.1.0, regardless of the yellow and green tints. I also enjoy the original grading because ot its reel to reel correction which probably makes it closer to the 1977 theatrical experience. So I gonna save both.

I have a question though regarding the source of one take at the moisture farm Jawa sequence. There is clearly visible digital noise (as opposed to analogue noise) between 18:46 to 18:53. It exhibits lots of microblocking around Luke when he moves his head and torso, it kinda moves and alignes around him in a very unnatural fashion. Is this part one of the few Blu-ray 1080p upscaled parts? There is a continuous scratch on the frame in this take which is also seen on other takes in the same scene, but these other takes don’t exhibit any noise. It makes me scratch my head…
