We still talking about kenkraly?

Guy is either a troll, a child, or a mentally disturbed individual. Just read his posts - incoherent, repetitive, and unsubstantial.

He told everyone about an email from LFL saying all color issues were corrected. Nobody else received such an email. I called him out back then and later again when the images/videos began to leak.

Ignore him.

Georgec I am not all those things you just called me so why don't you just take back everything you said.

I like how you said that you're "not all those things."

I actually thought they were worth getting. Sure it doesn't amount up to the majority of the fan edits around here, but still i think its worth it. My opinion of course.

I do think the sound in some of the dvd's, (Not ROTS) was better and i thought the picture was better in them too. Still not a big improvement. The thing that irritates me is that the ESB still has the blue freakin' tint in it.

So, not a big improvement but better.

Agreed!

Unlike most people though, I realized while watching ESB on Blu Ray last night that I actually prefer its blue tint.

IV, II, V, III, VI always works quite well.

If you wanted to take it a step further you could easily divide each film into either 2 or 3 segments, and mix them up even further. Here is a running order I outlined ages ago for a personal project

THE STAR WARS

part i    -    The Wind that Shakes the Stars

opens with a screaming body burning on the molten shores of mustafar. (a scene which haunts the entire series). Followed by obiwan bringing a baby to the homestead. *TITLE*

Removal of original opening of ANH, film starts from luke and we only follow his story. ends when luke leaves Tatooine on the Millennium Falcon

part ii    -    An Age of Heroes

Abridged AOTC to follow a more heroic anakin and obiwan.

part iii    -    A New Hope

Follows leia from beginning, until Millennium Falcon is captured. Rest of the film. throne room possibly cut.

part iv    -    The Empire Strikes Back

Film up until luke is on dagobah and han is in the asteroid.

part v    -    Shadow of the Black Knight

ROTS up until palpatine's revelation

part vi    -    The Dark Victory?

Second half of ESB. end scene of the fleet possibly cut.

part vii    -    The Secret Apprentice

very abridged TPM foucusing on anakin and qui-gon, examining possible routes of evil. ends in council chamber where anakin makes his choice to save palpatine.

part viii    -   

ROTS from anakins turn onwards, ending with him burning (a possible scene which is repeated throughout all the films)

part ix    -    The Last of the Jedi

First half of ROTJ. ends with the tyderium leaving hangar

part x    -    The Return of the Jedi

Second half of ROTJ, opens with emperors arrival, ending with luke cremating vader.

Can this be fan edited right now? Possibly as a miniseries? Yes? Honestly, this needs to be done.

STAR WARS: EP V &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>AVAILABLE NOW</strong>

I can NEVER understand why some people give us a hard time for liking the Revisited projects but disliking the Special Editions.  They are two utterly different things.

Ady isn't the one suppressing the originals, and if I'm not mistaken he actually made an Empire theatrical reconstruction.

Sheesh.

 Uh, I wasn't trying to give you a hard time. If i didn't like Revisited i wouldn't be here eagerly awaiting the relase of ESB:R. And yes, i do like the SE of the OT.

Maybe it was because i was 7 yrs old when they came out or something, but i thought they were a huge improvement over the OOT.

Interesting. When I first saw the SE trilogy I was about 6, and all I could think was how unnecessary it was. I actually really hated it, which is odd because now I love the idea of SEs, I just don't think they've been done properly (Until now, of course. Looking forward to ESB:R Ady!)

As raw footage they are just curios but if placed inside reworked scenes with different pacing they could be a really useful resource to fan-editors etc.

They deserve a clean up at the very least (as far as that is possible) so plenty of potential work for the creative arms of the community. 

Ye, I understand this point. I just don't like fan edits from an ethical point of view.

Kind of odd first of all that your name is "theprequelsrule", and that second of all, your on the the forum for fans of Star Wars that are also (for the most part) really into fan edits.

I am here to support the petition for a high quality release of the OOT. I would be happy with a standard-def DVD, in 16:9. That is all you need to be here.

I mean, I guess so. Its just a little odd.

Star Wars coming to Blu Ray (UPDATE: August 30 2011, No! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!)
Time

About these Blu-rays: I'm literally watching Episode II as I post this and I do have to say the teal shift makes it seem less cartoony. But the real reason I 'm posting this is because I noticed that during Anakin's dream, there is now audio of his mother crying his name (in a distressed way). I just thought this was odd since its a change that I didn't even hear about. It's actually a good change in my opinion because, well, that dream was a little weird before. It makes me wonder though, are there more audio changes that people have found? If most people missed this one than surely there's more. Anyone know?

Just like Lucas couldn't/wouldn't secure rights to Flash Gordon, we need an exciting new franchise to get behind (and it won't be from Cameron either). I'm optimistic that can happen, but I think it will be "underground" global phenomena rather than overground corporate shilled-to-death. The Matrix came close IMO, but no cigar.

I don't think I agree with you about Cameron.

Think of it this way: Sci-fi epic is released, becomes a must see event by pushing visual effects to the next level, and it ends up being the highest grossing film of all time. Critical reception is mostly positive, it is nominated for many Oscars including Best Picture which it loses, but many people don't believe in the hype. Granted, the film builds much of its content from pre-existing properties.

Now stop. What film have I described? Star Wars. I know many dislike Avatar, but Star Wars wasn't a sacred cow when it was released either. Now I'm sure most of you discovered Star Wars when you were kids right? Well I doubt you could find a kid that has seen Avatar and didn't like it. Also, Avatar 2 and 3 haven't even come out yet. So we should wait before we pass too much judgement. 

As a side note, I think everyone should be looking forward to Avatar 2. If you've seen Aliens, Terminator 2, or, hell the Empire Strikes Back, you should know what kind of movie we'll get.

lol, Lucas fans are clutching at straws.

I'm actually glad I read that blog post. I don't think its funny at all. Seriously, think about it: Lucas must have some reason for adding the NOOO!, believe it or not his goal isn't to rape people's childhoods, its creating his own vision of these movies. Now don't get me wrong, I don't like the change at all or the idea of revisions, but I don't approve of laughing at that post. Lucas had a reason for changing that scene and in all honesty I believe that that post, in trying to figure out why Lucas made the change, probably came up with the actual reason Lucas changed that scene. Hell, that post wasn't even defending him. So really, let's calm down here.

Have you thought about adding in a scene where Vader flies to Coruscant and sees Palpatine at the end, right before the ceremony, maybe using footage from the end of EPII when Dooku flies back (but obviously changing up the shots a bit)?

I just feel that if we're suggesting changes, something that I feel is somewhat missed in the OT is more of the Emperor and Coruscant. 

Just thinking this: what if the lightsaber duel in ROTJ had been on Coruscant?

***The &quot;9000&quot; Saga Edit***
Time

It seems to be down. Actually its seems all of Hal 9000's prequels are down, but this is the one I want to watch the most. I personally loved ROTS when it was released, there were only a few little things that nudged me in the wrong direction. It seems like Hal 9000 has changed the movie to exactly what I would have wanted it to be. I would greatly appreciate if it were put up again (and maybe the other two for reviewing/curiosity's sake).

Looking at the other posts here it seems like the problem came up before. I don't know if it had been fixed or if it hadn't, but either way there down now. Thanks.
