Cool. Just sent you a PM. 😃
I created a “Hybrid Cut” of Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers using the Blu-rays for the theatrical cut and Producer’s Cut. I compared both versions meticulously and used the parts that I liked best about each version. I spent over 50 hours working on it.
Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers Blu-ray (theatrical cut)
Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers Blu-ray (Producer’s Cut)
Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers Expanded Soundtrack (for one particular scene where I wanted to use the sound design of the theatrical cut with the music from the Producer’s Cut).
If anyone is interested in seeing this cut, please send me a PM. You must own the official Blu-rays of both versions!

Recent thread on this exact topic.
Says it’s been locked by a moderator. Anyone remember what the consensus was?
Edit: Oops, nevermind. I didn’t realize all the replies were still there.
Do creators of fan edits normally put their name/username in the end credits? And is it risky to do that? I’d think if a fan edit was made anonymously then the creator would have less of a chance of getting in trouble.
Pablo Hidalgo said on Twitter that one man is responsible for the original versions not being released, so it’s possible Lucas had some clause in the contract with Disney that prevents them from releasing the originals.
What exactly is the significance of the GOUT audio? I’ve heard about people syncing the Silver Screen Edition to the GOUT audio and I was wondering what exactly the reason for that is. Is the GOUT soundtrack the original soundtrack of Star Wars?
Are there Star Wars Despecialized T-shirts? I’d love to have one. Imagine a bunch of people all over the world walking around wearing Despecialized T-shirts, helping to spread the word of the original versions!
There might be a 4K version of the unaltered original Star Wars next year:
hello good morning , my name is Jesus , it seems a spectacular job , mipregunta is where I download the ISO image Star_Wars_SSE_TN1_v1_6 , thank you and sorry for the inconvenience.
On myspleen. But you’ll need an invite first, if you haven’t one already.
The ISO is only on usenet, not on myspleen. There is an MKV based on the ISO that is on myspleen, though.
I’m looking at a link for the ISO on myspleen at this very moment. It says it was added on June 18.
Even if Disney does release the OOT on blu-ray with the Fox logo, they probably won’t include the original alien subtitles in the first and third movies in the original font and will instead have player-generated subs. In my opinion, these would be altered versions of the films.
Well I view it 3 ways. You have fans who prefer the OUT, fans who prefer the SE (any of them), and fans who aren't concerned otherwise and will watch the film's regardless of what versions they are. When you break it down the real battle is only between the first two groups of fans. The last will be happy with whatever. So I wouldn't say the OUT fans are a minority but they shouldn't be the target audience that Disney's aiming for should they reissue the OUT. As much as I prefer the OUT over the SE, I'm not gonna be part of the crowd that goes 'you're not a true SW fan if you like the SE's' or vice versa. If the originals are to be issued again, Disney should package it with the SE, whether it's a previously released version or a new edit, to please both camps. As I said the third group will probably be pleased with whatever.
I definitely agree that both should be packaged together. The SE, like it or not, is now an irreversible part of the OT's history, and should be preserved as such alongside the originals.
When you say the SE should be preserved, are you talking about the most recent SE or all of them? And if Lucas decided to re-release the SE on blu-ray again with a few more changes, would you want those preserved too?
Since the GOUT is just a DVD version of the '93 Laserdiscs, does anyone know where the coloring from the laserdiscs came from? A few pages earlier in this thread someone said the coloring of the DE is the same as the theatrical version, and I noticed the GOUT has different coloring. So was there a difference in the coloring between the theatrical, VHS, and laserdisc versions?
I downloaded v2.5 in 720p and I see it's the same coloring as the DVD5. Is this how it looked theatrically? Where did the coloring from v1.0 come from?
I'm not sure if anyone else brought this up, but the movie doesn't end on a black frame; it ends on the credits and they don't fade out completely. At least this is how it is on the DVD5 version, not sure about the 720p. So I just wanted to bring that up so that in the next release it doesn't just pause on the almost-faded out credits. Also I noticed that it's on a loop. So when it ends, it starts playing again. The DVD5 of Star Wars and Empire just stop after they're done.
I just looked at the end credits and there's no mention of a version 2.0 or 2.5 so I'm guessing it's 1.0? The descpecialized credits don't scroll, it's just a still shot.
Yeah I downloaded the one from the link you sent me. I compared the 720p to the DVD5 one and sometimes the actors' skin look a little more pinkish or yellowish than in the 720p one. For instance, the shot of Luke's face at the 34:15 mark looks a bit more purple in the DVD5.
Also, compare the clothes of the guy walking by at the 42:32 mark. Way more yellow in the DVD5 than the 720p. Actually almost everything in that shot has a yellowish tint that isn't present in the 720p.
Is the DVD5 really just a downscaled version of the 720p? I ask because I noticed the coloring is different. The coloring looks similar to the 2006 official DVD release.
It's pretty ridiculous that George Lucas stated that the special editions are the way he always wanted the films to be. That's total BS. If that were true, then there wouldn't be several versions of the special editions. If they are how he always wanted them, he would've included the infamous "Noooo!" that Darth Vader says in ROTJ in 2004, not several years later. If he really wanted a rock covering R2D2 in Star Wars, he would've done that when he filmed it. The fact that he constantly makes changes to his films proves he never intended anything really. He's never satisfied with what he has so nothing he ever does will ever be what he "always intended."
Good idea Harmy. I might get one just to watch your Despecialized Editions in the best quality possible!
In my earlier post when I said I wanted to burn a dual layered DVD with the .iso file and play it in my DVD player, I had no idea what I was talking about. Back then when I read Harmy's first post saying that the .iso could also be put on a dual layered DVD and would play in most Blu-ray players, I thought that meant that it would play in all DVD players and also most Blu-Ray players. I didn't really have any knowledge about this stuff. But recently I was talking with Erik Pancakes and he explained everything to me.
So thanks again to Erik Pancakes, and also to everyone who responded, and especially to Harmy for brilliantly re-creating these awesome movies, and to Chewtobacca who made the officially-sanctioned DVD5 versions. I ordered some Verbatim DVD-R discs and can't wait to burn them with the beautiful Despecialized Editions!!! :-D
I'm having a problem burning dvd+r dl discs with the despecialized editions. I imported .iso file into Imgburn (actually I think it made me import the mds file) and when I burned the disc it didn't play in my my dvd player. I noticed when I opened it on my computer it just had the .iso image on the disc. Isn't it supposed to convert it to some other format that can play on a dvd player? Since it just copied the .iso file I thought the program thought I was just burning a data disc. But I chose "write image file to disc" in Imgburn. Can anyone give me some help on how to make DVDs of the .iso files that will play in a DVD player? Thanks!
If the rule is you should have the blu-rays before downloading the despecialized editions so that you aren't technically getting something for nothing, then why aren't you supposed to own all the different versions of the movies that were used as sources for the despecialized versions? If you only own the blu-rays, then it could be argued that you're profiting from the piracy of all the releases that aren't blu-rays.
I see, Erik. Thanks. I was able to find the despecialized versions elsewhere.
In the first post on this thread it says:
"The ISO image can be burned to a DVD-DL and should work in most Blu-Ray players.
To burn, you can use image burn following thse instructions: http://onlineitpro.com/?p=181"
but when I click that link it says:
"Error establishing a database connection"
Is there an updated link to get the ISO? Thanks.
I'd like to have all of Harmy's despecialized editions on DVDs with menus and chapter markers. Can someone tell me if there are links to download DVD files of the movies and any instructions on how to create them? Thanks!
