I'll never understand the attitude of people who oppose the release of the unaltered original trilogy.

It has been my observation that most pro SE people who support the suppression or the original cuts are ignorant about film and video tech in general. A lot of people don’t seem to understand what “HD” or “4K” even really mean and act as if they are some sort of application that you apply to old films to make them look better.

I literally got into an argument with someone in the comments for an upload of a Star Trek Generations deleted scene on YouTube that was from a barely watchable multi generational VHS copy of a workprint, which was then uploaded to YouTube in sub SD quality. This person seemed to think that movies come out of the camera in this kind of dog shit lo-rez VHS quality and that they use some kind of magic “upscaler” to make films look the way they do when they are released.
