I can only review what i have seen. I saw 4K83 with no DNR and i was blown away. The film looked exactly how it looked when i saw it in 1985. I will never watch the new 4K remaster from Lucasfilm a second time.

The DEs remain my go-to versions for rewatching, as I prefer the off-the-negative modern Blu-ray look, especially for watching between the Prequel and Sequel Trilogies. Star Wars v2.7 isn’t 100% seamless and has a few very minor “glitches,” but it’s still a remarkable achievement and fantastic viewing experience. The DEs of V-VI are more seamless and hold up even better.

I have no doubts that the 3.0 versions will become my definitive restorations when they arrive.

I’m watching the first reel of Star Wars. 4K77 and i’m nearly speechless with how beautiful it looks.

If the rest of the film is like that i will be picking my jaw off the floor.

I cannot wait for 4K80.

I, myself, prefer Despecialized for it’s cleaner and polished look. The various 4K restorations all look incredible though; I guess I’ve never been one to watch or own a film exactly the way it was seen in a theater.

In my case, the drive-in with the little metal clip-on speaker and the reel that broke partway through isn’t anything I’d ever want to repeat. Not that the film wasn’t amazing anyway, but still.

Agreed.
