I’ve always thought attempting to grade this correctly (even with the quality of the 4k83 scan being as high as it is) would be difficult for no other reason than Return of the Jedi is sort of a flat looking movie. There have got to be moments where you’re looking at a shot and thinking “this seems sort of bland and washed out” and the truth is… it IS bland and washed out! Because Jedi very often looked like that! So do you fix it and make it a little more vibrant, make the image seem to have more depth - or do you leave it as is because Jedi just didn’t consistently look very good?
Thank you so much for your efforts. I know it can’t be easy.
