Would anyone have any screenshots comparing the official Blu-Ray and Harmy’s special edition? Be interested to see.

It looks like the comparison gallery listed in Harmy’s project thread is gone thanks to the final demise of Google+. So, this is actually now a fair question.

^ a good point that, mate.

 

There is this video comparison for Despecialized and the official 2011 blu ray release:-

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?
And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Cheers guys, the reason why I asked is because when I watched Harmy’s version on my 1080p Plasma I noticed some of the flaws but it seemed okay. But watching it last night on a 4K Oled TV…I dunno, I noticed the imperfections more sadly and weirdly it looked like everyone had too much make up on.

Watching that YouTube video above and Obi-Wan looks like he’s got a good tan compared to the other versions.

Whilst I prefer the pacing of the original version, I’m thinking of just relenting and having the Blu-Ray’s as my go-to versions now due to the quality.
Also in ANH, unsure if it’s because I’ve watched the special edition a lot, but the edit of the theatrical just before Luke gets to the Falcon seems really jarring without the Jabba scene now - help me! lol

Have you tried 35mm restoration projects? Harmy edits are wonderful and were my way to go for the whole OT for some time, but 4K77 and 4K83 are way superior options for SW and RotJ IMO, I recommend you to try those.

I second the 35mm restorations. 4k77 and 4k83 are absolutely beautiful in 4K. If you have a 4k OLED TV and a way to play 4k files to it, you owe it to yourself to get these versions in 2160p.

Yeah, right now my go to’s are 4K77 for SW, 4K83 for ROTJ, and Harmy for ESB since 4K80 isn’t done yet and the Grindhouse/Dreamastered 35mm version isn’t the best looking to me.

Even if you’re sticking with 1080p, the 4K77/4K83 releases are excellent. Though I’d probably wait for 4K77 SkyMaster Edition for 1080p SW, and the forthcoming Sanjuro-graded DNR 4K83 for ROTJ.

For 4K, get the no-DNR Sanjuro graded ones if you can (though be prepared for SW to be grainier than you remember).
