Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW
Time

I'm not entirely sure on this but there was something on this post: http://originaltrilogy.com/forum/topic.cfm/Harmys-STAR-WARS-Despecialized-Edition-HD-REMASTERED-is-now-officially-released/post/557865/#TopicPost557865

Mverta was talking about the bulbs used when this was being projected and that a bulb from the 70s had a warmer yellow hue to it.

Does anyone here still like Star Wars?
Time

As others have said, when it comes to Star Wars, I'm hardly a fan outside the OUT. Though I must be in the minority, I only got into Star Wars in 2003 when I was 11, the first film I watched was The Phantom Menace on VHS. After that was Attack of the Clones, then Return of the Jedi SE, Star Wars/A New Hope SE and Empire Strikes Back SE, after that was Revenge of the Sith in theatres.

Around the time, I was the usual kid where I preferred the visuals and duels from the Prequels. When the DVD set came out for the OT the year after, I was a bit disappointed with some of the changes like Hayden in Jedi, though I just accepted them.

It wasn't until 2009 where I discovered Adywan's Revisited edit for A New Hope and this site when I started to loathe the Special Editions. After that I finally got around to watching the OUT and I found them much better, they definitely felt more like 70/80s movies.

To think, a fan for nine years who was introduced by the Prequels (I can still watch these though it's hard to ignore the awful stuff in it now) and Special Editons (can't watch these full stop now) and now the only thing I ever want to buy from them is a properly restored OUT set.

Not sure if anyone has asked but will the BD25 version have any special features? Because I had planned to make my own using the MKV version with the Making of Star Wars featurette and Deleted/Extended scenes from the Complete Saga set and the Trailers/TV spots from the 2004 DVD (just to make it feel more complete) and just wanted to know if it was worth downloading the BD25 version instead.

Which version/release of the Star Wars movies do you watch and why?
Time

For the original trilogy, it would be Harmy's Despecialised version since it still remains to be the best quality for the OUT yet. At times I will watch Adywan's Revisited edit for A New Hope for the incredible things he has done to it and intend on watching Empire Strikes Back whenever he finishes it. I've now gone to a point where I find the entire Special Editions unwatchable, so I refuse to buy another set of the originals until the OUT is ever released which'll unlikely happen.

For the prequel trilogy, I've gone back to the original cuts surprisingly after buying the Blu-ray set. For the last few years I did watch ADigitalMan's and Magnoliafan's fan-edits which were great but I sort of drifted away. I still have a soft spot for the original cuts, though at times I still rolled my eyes at some of the stuff like Yoda vs. Dooku, whenever midichlorians are mentioned and Jar Jar is being annoying. Now that I have watched the Blu-ray set (twice including the archival commentary), I do miss the creepy Yoda puppet, despite the digital one looking more like the others.
