The theatrical TROS is a film I have mixed feelings about, and I like that this edit will continue on the strengths of TLJ while removing scenes that pander to those that didn’t like TLJ.
Any pics of the crawl?
I reread Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and it felt like it went by too fast.
Actually, captainsolo, you have 14 copies of Dr. No (4 VHS, 7 LD, 2 DVD and 1 Blu-Ray) and From Russia With Love (3 VHS, 8 LD, 2 DVD and 1 Blu-Ray).
Are there any custom covers for Empire of Dreams? I got a disc only copy in a lot on eBay and would like a cover for it.
I am certain adywan will spend time fixing the continuity error from Yavin.
If I had to decide the worst scene of every movie, I would say:
SW’77: The trash compactor
ANH-SE: Han meets Jabba
ESB: The asteroid slug
ESB-SE: Vader’s shuttle
ROTJ: Ewoks kill stormtroopers
ROTJ-SE: Jedi Rocks
TPM: Jar-Jar’s introduction
AOTC: The fireplace scene
ROTS: Anakin kills younglings
TFA: “It’s another Death Star”
TLJ: The space horse chase
TROS: “You are a Palpatine”
I can’t decide which moment is the worst out of all of them.
You forgot to pick a scene from Rogue One and Solo.
Actually, I also have 4 copies of Wrath of Khan. The ones I own are the 1982 CED, 1986 Collector’s Edition VHS, 2000 Theatrical DVD and 2002 Director’s Cut DVD.
ANH (Theatrical): Tosche Station line
ANH (Saga): The mistake that puts Yavin IV in range of the Death Star early on
ESB (Theatrical): Incestuous Kiss
ESB (Saga): Altered Boba voice
ROTJ (Theatrical): Somehow I’ve always known
ROTJ (Saga): Jedi Rocks
TPM: Anakin building C3PO
AOTC: The head swap
ROTS: Anakin murdering younglings
TFA: Revealing Ben’s lineage too early
R1: Ponda Baba cameo
TLJ: Maz’s cameo
Solo: Han’s naming scene
TROS: Star Destroyer with a built in Death Star destroying Kijimi
Now I’m curious what’s in the prequel set and the bonus features set.
Do you plan on correcting the major error from the 97SE that puts Yavin in the Death Star’s range from the start? I think despecializing the shot would be easier than manually removing the moon of Yavin.
Added: Tale of Two Cities (1935) and Immortal Beloved (Both on Laserdisc)
Weeded: Bridges of Madison County
I just watched the standalone TROS (Target version) and it had DNR, unlike TLJ’s initial pressing. The Faces OT looked more like celluloid than this release, which was trying to mimic grainless, too-perfect digital.
I guess I should update this since it’s been… a decade?
This is just the Original Trilogy.
11SE Blu-rays (purchased used individually, some from a going-out-of-business Blockbuster Video)
ESB GOUT (used media store in 2018)
ANH GOUT (shrink-wrapped from a local grocery store in 2019)
The Digital Six Film Collection (Microsoft in 2019)
19SE UHDs (purchased individually last week)
ROTJ GOUT (eBay this week)
ANH GOUT (“fullscreen”, so I don’t have to open mine, eBay this week)
I found a “Faces” VHS set somewhere in the last decade, I have that too.
I’m planning on using a friend’s custom cases to store each 19SE UHD, 11SE BD, 04SE DVD, GOUT, and the new bonus disc.
I’d like to see the custom cases once you’re finished with them.
Jedi Rocks is the worst scene if you count the Special Editions.
Update: I forgot to put the Phineas and Ferb Star Wars in the first photo.
I also replaced the time compressed Pan and Scan Empire LD with a Japanese full speed Pan and Scan version also on LD.
I just took this 100mpix pano of my Star Wars collection - thought I’d share here 😃
That’s a cool setup. What version of the OT did you get to use as a source for 3.0?
I’m sure captainsolo will win this thread.
Wow, you’ve even got CED’s. I don’t think those ever existed on the Scandinavian market (or anywhere in Europe for that matter) so I know very little about them, are they rare or expensive?
Next time I’m in the US I’ll have to track down one of those Star Wars to Jedi tapes. It’d be worth having in my collection just for that cover. Also, what format is that TPM box on the far left?
CEDs were available in the UK for about a year. That TPM is a widescreen VHS collector’s edition. Above Battle for Endor is a 35mm trailer for Attack of the Clones.
The circle is now complete. Here is a photo of my Star Wars video collection. I have no intention of getting the Attack of the Clones trailer scanned yet.
Rafael Gomez Nieto (99) one of the last surviving veterans of the Spanish Civil War died of COVID-19 today.
For me, it’s Wizard of Oz. 1988 Criterion Laserdisc, 1989 VHS, 2009 3-Disc Blu-Ray and the 2013 Best of WB 20 Film Musicals DVD set.
that is correct as far as the US is concerned. The UK had more releases, with a 1991 Special Widescreen Edition (NTSC-to-PAL conversions of the US Widescreen Laserdiscs), the 1994 Digitally Remastered release, THX 1995 standalone, the Superclass set, the 97 Special Edition and the 2000 reprint of the 97SE.
I obtained a UMD copy of Alien, but it’s in 1:78:1 Anamorphic Pan and Scan.
JEDIT: Are the interviews being included?
