I know of very few things that he ‘missed’ in “Star Wars” 2.5, but the quality of many of the shots he restored is far lower due to the sources he had at hand.

A year ago and Star Wars Despecialized 2.5 was this ridiculously close to perfect version, and now it’s the warty stepsister of the trilogy. Such is the price of progress. I agree Jedi is now the one that’s currently most ridiculously close to perfect, no doubt soon to be surpassed by Empire, and so on.

It’s crazy when you consider how we would’ve seen this progress ten years ago. I first started lurking during the XO project days, and left for a few years. But the early suggestions of using 35mm were basically laughed out of the room.

I still think Empire 2.0 is fantastic as well. I don’t tend to notice the 97SE Falcon cockpit shots the way other people do, which is often the main or only complaint.
