A rumor is a rumor. It can be trusted or not trusted. My point is I will not get hyped for anything until something is confirmed. ‘Rumor’ as far as I’m concerned means nothing because ‘Rumor of Original Trilogy reissue’ has been a headline that’s come out like once a year for like the last decade! Give a confirmation then you’ll have my attention.

The rumor isn’t OUT, it’s OT, to which I say, “Star Wars in 4K soon? No shit.”

They actually have 2 original prints, according to the LOC website. One of the prints is “preservation material,” the other is a “reference print.”

Right. They have the original copyright deposits, but the National Film Registry doesn’t have the archival print it requested.

The Worst Scene/Sequence in Any Star Wars Film

I think we can all agree AOTC probably has the most issues. And while it’s hard to pick THE worst scene, the one that drives me crazy is Padme (NOT a Jedi but a regular human-type character) drops from who knows how many feet in the air, lands on her…um…crotch…and without missing a beat, gives her new boyfriend a peck on the cheek.

Anakin subconciously cushioned her crotch with the Force

Racy. Can’t believe George was able to sneek that past the MPAA censors.

<strong>Moon</strong> - an appreciation thread : (2009 film by Duncan Jones) (<strong>NEWS</strong>)
Time

According to IMDB, it was shot on 35mm and finished at a 2K DI.

I assume that means there is no “original negative” in the classic sense, since the DI serves the role of the assembled o-neg. Rather just rolls of disjointed camera negative in a box.

Correct me if I’m wrong.
