Most Baffling Complaint of a Star Wars Movie

While we’re talkin’ lightsabers, the only thing that bothers me is that they always make the bad guy have a red one. And only the bad guys have red ones. That’s dumb.
Of course, that’s coincidental in the OT, so it doesn’t effect my SW world.

What’s the guy up front doing?? He’s about to be skewered mid-air!

And you could say it continues to work in the ST, because Rey inherited Luke’s, and Ren is A Vader wannabe.

On a related note, Star Wars is better when not everyone and his uncle has a lightsaber. That’s really the biggest problem with that scene in Clones.

And from another thread:

I know it’s an anonymous Redditer, but a 4K release is an eventuality, and a release leading into Christmas and IX makes sense.

One can dream it will contain the theatrical when it happens, whether this year or later. There really is no excuse from a technical/financial perspective not to release the original cut when SW hits the format.

With 20th century almost in Disney’s grasp what are the odds of an OUT release?

If 4K is happening in advance of IX, I guess we should expect an announcement at Celebration. If we don’t get an announcement at Celebration, then probably not. And if an announcement with no mention of the theatrical cuts, then probably not going to be included. I’d bet if they are including them, they’ll announce it as soon as they announce any release to avoid any potential bad press.

New 4K releases - but are they any good?
Time

Read the last page of the thread. A little depressing.

At least my pocket book is now safer. There were a couple titles that I was considering upgrading for HDR. But knowing this, and firmly believing that 1080p resolution is plenty for home viewing, I’m less inclined to upgrade anything.

I plan to upgrade my hardware in a couple years. OLED and a quality 4K player for proper upscaling. Replacing my LED backlit LCD and entry level BDP with that will do a lot to improve my viewing experience even for regular blu rays.
