Episode VII: The Ridiculousness Awakens
Time

At the Starkiller speech, Hux could sing Dethharmonic by Dethklok.

“Prepare the laser beam. I’m gonna use it tonight…”

There’s also a line about “I’d rather you be dead than to lose a tiny shred of what I’ve made this fiscal year.”
That would actually give the First Order some motivation. They’re against the New Republic because of their taxation policies regarding trade routes. This also connects it to Phantom Menace because, like poetry, it rhymes 😉

Episode IV: A Ridiculous Hope

SE. It’s supposed to be ridiculous, right? I’m sure there’s stuff there you could play with. Han v Greedo could be a shootout. Or Greedo could repeatedly shoot at Han and he keeps dodging.

And just before Han finally gets fed up and fires back, he could say his line to C3P0 from ROTJ, “Hurry it up, will you? I haven’t got all day.”

team negative1 - star wars 1977 - 35mm theatrical version (Released)
Time

Thank you guys so much for all your hard work!
I hope all this attention from Facebook won’t bring the legal hammer down from Lucasfilm/Disney. But I also hope if they’re aware of this that they understand why it was necessary and that all of us who really care about the original cuts of these films will still gladly buy an official release if/when it’s ever available.

Harmy's RETURN OF THE JEDI Despecialized Edition HD - V2.5 - AVCHD DVD9 & NTSC DVD5 (Released)

Harmy, or anyone that has the answer, is the ROTJ 2.0 that is currently on myspleen official? Or is that not meant to be on there yet? Thanks!

It’s either the workprint or not official.

I’d just like to say that the Facebook arguments regarding Harmy’s lack of respect for George Lucas’ artistic vision are quite entertaining, but also a little frightening (just like any good carnival ride)

Yes, the matte boxes are very much there but I fiddled with the contrast to make sure they were visible as little as possible without loosing too much detail - and I did the same for the Emperor's blobs in ROTJ v1.0 and I will probably use HDTV and do the same for v2.0 as well.

 That's exactly what I was hoping for!

Keeping them there because they're part of the process used to make the film,  but fixing the brightness and contrast so they aren't in your face like in the GOUT :)

More OUT Rerelease Rumors from John Landis!

I ran over to Amazon to look at reviews of the steelbook editions from people who claim to already have them. They say it's still the SE's, but one review mentioned that Greedo doesn't fire.

 There is a 0% chance of accuracy in that review.

 Probably. But it wouldn't surprise me if just that one change was reverted as a feeble attempt to silence the Han shot first crowd.

It also wouldn't surprise me if the whole scene rotated in slow motion as Han dodged Greedo's blast Matrix-style while yelling "Nooooooo!"

The only thing that would surprise me at this point is a high quality release or restoration of the originals in the foreseeable future.

I ran over to Amazon to look at reviews of the steelbook editions from people who claim to already have them. They say it's still the SE's, but one review mentioned that Greedo doesn't fire.

Makes me wonder if that one small change was made, and Lucas mentioned to Landis that in the next release Han would shoot first, and Landis in turn took that comment to mean more than it really did...
