The VHS Awakens (The Force Awakens VHS emulation)

Not too long ago, I purchased Red Giant Universe, which is a collection of filters for Adobe Premiere Pro. One of those filters is simply called VHS. https://www.redgiant.com/products/universe/vhs
It’s a filter meant to emulate the VHS look. So I decided to try it out on Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens and well, here’s a five-minute sample: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1iZxmO5lT5Z_R1Y57WrU1rI2lGrbmE-YP
So, what’s your opinion?

Could be worthwhile to track down this as a reference point (and perhaps for a preservation.) 😃

A CBS/FOX Laserdisc version would be the 4:3 ratio without the VHS effect.

I would tone down the horizontal line artifacts. That’s not really an inherent part of the VHS experience, as long as your tape isn’t damaged.
