1812 Overture tells the story of the Russian victory over Napoleon Bonaparte.
Also, having Padme live once you get to Episode III fixes a major plot hole from ROTJ.
How does Anakin become Vader in this rewrite?
Wait till you get a PS5 or Xbox Series X. Then consider buying them.
The Sequels. Even though I felt Rise of Skywalker couldn’t hit the highs of Last Jedi, all of them are better films than the prequels. However, the novelization of Revenge of the Sith is better than both TFA and TROS, but not TLJ.
That’s so cool, having a press book.
For me, it’s the original hardback of Heir to the Empire, printed in 1991.
This is everything after giving the GOUT DVD to my sister.
There’s a Japanese Laserdisc with original music, released in 1986.
60GB for an SD preservation? That’s about the size of 4K77 2160p. That’s definitely going overboard.
Slapstick isn’t funny. It’s entertaining though.
Romance is stupid and unnecessary in movies unless it is crucial to the plot. (Is this unpopular?)
I don’t like most musical films. They’re just too cheerful and romanticises a historic era sometimes, and probably most appeal to middle aged mums. However, there are some musicals I do genuinely do enjoy.
Fan-service is god-awful bollocks and ruins the aesthetic of a film other than to please horny teenagers. That ruins a lot of anime. Please, young-adult oriented anime where the female characters aren’t sexualised and look like a bug-eyed Disney character please?
I’m bloody tired of Every. Single. Fantasy. Story… taking place in a world modelled after medieval Europe. Like, how about a world modelled after imperial Asia, or… ancient Mesopotamia. Or, god forbid, pre-contact America?! Just stop trying to be like Tolkien.
What the flying fuck are the good plot advancing reasons for sex scenes other than to please the bloody audience?!
Terminator 1 had a sex scene to explain how John Connor was conceived to keep the time loop stable.
ANH: Hall full of stormtroopers
ESB: Fix the visible arm
ROTJ: Removing the rope from Han’s feet
All of these can be done while keeping GOUT sync.
I forgot how close to the original color timing the CBS FOX releases on Laserdisc are, so those are an option used occasionally. They also have the original Dolby Stereo mixes.
The sequel trilogy is better than the New Jedi Order novels.
Not worth it considering 4K83 is one generation from the original negative.
Maybe you could buy a 1997 Turkish VHS set and transfer the video & audio.
Labyrinth of Evil (HAL 9000’s Revenge of the Sith) is a great epilogue to the show.

JEDIT: I decided to keep the CBS/FOX Laserdiscs instead of the FOX Video VHS.
Upgraded Bridge on the River Kwai and Guns of Navarone to a Double Feature Blu-Ray set. I also gave my GOUT DVD trilogy to my sister.
I feel like TROS, these crawls overuse allcaps for emphasis. Only around 1 term per film should be emphasized by allcaps.
As for ANH, it retains the censoring of the blaster shots on the Imperial officer’s chest from the 04SE on.
Naboo wasn’t in the 1997 galactic montage, so Wesa Free should naturally be gone because the audio predates that change.
Added 4K version of 2001 to my collection. I plan to sell the Blu-Ray and DVD of 2001, but keep the Criterion Laserdisc. I also added a Blu-Ray of 2010 and the original DVD of A Clockwork Orange. I then weeded the HD-DVD of the latter film.
