FINALLY watching the GOUT Trilogy properly

Author
Time

How stupid am I as I was put off watching the GOUT Trilogy which I’ve owned for 12yrs because it was a small image in the middle of my TV screen. So I sought out the many other far superior OT versions i have now as I discovered them. But thanks to finding a custom zoom feature i didn’t know TVs had i can now happily watch the GOUT versions the way I’d always want to see them.

While this does solve the anamorphic problem it doesn’t solve the motion blur but at least it looks nice when played in a Blu Ray player.

I can answer almost all questions anyone might have about the Sith from Star Wars Legends, and please do PM me for the bd25 DEED(Despecalised Editions), as I have this version, though I can’t answer technical questions about them. Do not go gentle into that good night, Though wise men at their end know dark is right, They

True but that was never a major issue for me just like i don’t mind the scratches and dirt on the Grindhouse versions though they do annoy most of my friends for some reason.

^I am in agreement here …the movies I saw in 77,80,and 83 had some scratches and grain on them and were not in HD in the theatre

The Despecialized Editions are Astonishing and I’m thrilled to have them and will get the 3.0 versions when they’re available but i will always prefer the 35mm Preservations

I would like to see the finished 35mm preservations some time

Star Wars 4k77 looks awesome but struggling to find ROTJ 4k83 and hopefully at some point we’ll get ESB 4k80

That’s not how the term “HD” works. Also note that some HD video tranfers have grain and occasionally some scratches.

I thought film can’t be HD, anyway, since “HD” is a digital term.

Well, technically. But comparing film to HD at all is a flawed concept at that point. My point was that grain and damage aren’t a factor when comparing resolution, which HD refers to.

But you absolutely need to do a HD scan if you want to capture all the details that are on film.

A lot of people think wrongly that old films aren’t HD no need for blu-ray when those old films do look far better on blu-ray.

Han: Hey Lando! You kept your promise, right? Not a scratch?
Lando: Well, what’s left of her isn’t scratched. All the scratched parts got knocked off along the way.
Han (exasperated): Knocked off?!

But it’s because they are shrinking down the information to make it fit on current TV displays. It’s not “all the details” at all. This is… the OT boards we’re on right? XD

35mm film still has more resolution than HD. 4K comes closer.

It’s not normal for a film to be noticeably “scratched”. Scratches occur on theatrical prints after heavy use.

So is this why the GOUT and the SSE look like they do? Or is the gout different in some way?

The GOUT is just a low-resolution early 90s master from Lucasfilm (so, ostensibly, from earlier generation sources like the O-neg or separation masters). The SSE is based on release prints, I believe. They’re entirely different.

The GOUT transfers were done in 1993 from interpositives struck from the o-neg in 1985.
