One thing that always bugged me about Adywan’s color correction on ANH was that the Death Star stuff almost looked black and white. Too much color was taken out of it IMHO
Yes it will. If you want to keep the old print, download it. If it doesn’t let you do that, copy it to your own Google Drive, then make a copy of that copy, then download the copy’s copy (this bypasses download limits).
Thanks. Yeah, I downloaded it before I watched it so I’m anxious to watch the new one with all the changes. Keep up the great work, Hal.
Will the new workprint you’re rendering replace the version that’s in the G Drive folder right now? I just discovered that one earlier this week and watched it the other night. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
That’s too bad. I would have liked an upscaled version to see if it was better than the current DVD quality.
Yeah, everything on the Death Star looks a little too desaturated. Ackbar and all of the space scenes look great, though.
That is the most polite post this forum has ever seen. It makes me happy.
There is hope for humanity after all. Take care, Adywan…we’re all wishing you the best.
I downloaded it before reading the comments here. I might just move the file to my Recycle Bin now. I still think ForceGhostRecon’s TLJ edit is the best one I’ve seen yet. 😃
Looking forward to checking it out.
Are you using Adywan’s ANH as the source and does that mean the release will be DVD quality instead of HD?
I just found this project. Looks amazing! Keep up the great work.
One Word: GARBAGE!
These De-Specialized versions are the same as the Sequel Trilogy: An Insult to George Lucas, A Disgrace to the franchise, Fan-fiction, Pointless and Unnecessary!
I managed to get the theatrical cuts in very low resolutions (.avi) and I forgot how horrible it was back then.
Makes me appreciate even more the Special Editions and The Prequel Trilogy.
Why are you here?
Another vote here for a high-bitrate mkv. I don’t need menus, special features or anything else other than the movie itself. Would be great to play the highest quality of ESB:R possible through my Nvidia Shield and I’m guessing more people here would prefer that over the blu-ray structure anyway. Just a suggestion.
No. JJ did that, Rian fixed some issues of the postlogy with his episode 8.
That is absolutely laughable. JJ did a far better job making a Star Wars film than Rian Johnson could ever do. Then again, if you’re quoting James Cameron’s opinion of TFA there’s probably nothing I could ever say to get through to you.
As for Ivan’s edit, TLJ is an unmitigated disaster of a movie and I, for one, would welcome a fanedit that could make it even remotely watchable. At this point, however, I don’t know if it’s even possible to salvage such a trainwreck!
Well, that escalated quickly. He wasn’t posting jack in this thread anyway so not like he will be missed.
Wait, is the whole edit only going to have 2 channel stereo as the audio track? If so, that’s very disappointing news.
I just watched this and I have to say it pretty much addressed all the major issues I had with TLJ. You got rid of Canto Bight which was horrible, all the cringe inducing stuff between Finn and Rose, Luke lives at the end, he doesn’t toss his saber over his shoulder, the Leia Poppins scene is improved with Luke saving her, etc. This is definitely my favorite edit of the film so far. Good work!
How is that going to work? Is he going to have those guys dressed up as Luke and Kylo, then somehow insert them into the actual movie? That’s a helluva feat if he can pull it off and make it look realistic.
Ivan, you’re doing some amazing stuff with this edit. I really can’t wait to see the finished product because I think it could be fantastic. Great work, man!
Imperial March works wonderful with Vader’s Tantive entrance. Good work.
The Maz scene was the only truly offensive thing in this movie. I imagine that this was the intent though, since Rian has no qualms with destroying the stupid aspects of The Force Awakens in the most savage way possible. What better way to tell JJ that Maz is a videogame NPC than by literally putting her in one?
I hated the Maz scene too, but to say it was the only truly offensive thing in this movie is some serious FAKE NEWS!
Looking forward to seeing what the fan editors can do with this film. I know there’s potential for an enjoyable SW film in there, just not the cut I saw at the theater. 😦
I’d like to see what an extremely heavy-handed cut looks like.
Cut Laura Dern. Cut Po’s sitcom storyline. Cut Casino Planet. Cut Rose. Cut any mention of “fuel” or hyperspace tracking. Cut the wildly out of scale dreadnaught and stealth bomber. Cut the hyperspace rail gun.
Cut Leia’s spacewalk. Possibly kill off Leia in the bridge explosion. Finn didn’t do anything in this movie so I guess he’s be gone too.
Entire movie would be Rey training, Force Time calls with Kylo, Throne Room, Luke stuff at the end, Rey moving some rocks. Wipe to credits after Binary Sunset.
I love everything you just suggested here. 😃
The new Yavin Death Star battle is what I’m most excited for. Watching ESB:R proves how drastically more impressive Ady’s skills are now.
Yeah, as amazing as the final battle is in ANH:R I can only imagine how much better it will be in this next version.
Looks absolutely amazing Ady.
My only suggestion for ANH:R this time around is that the colors aren’t so desaturated with regards to the Death Star. The interior shots and the exterior during the trench run almost looked like a black and white movie at times. I’m sure you’re well aware of that, though. 😉
