In ESB when Han says “Then I’ll see you in hell.” that line used to be “Then I’ll see you in HELLLLL!!!” with the “hell” part really screamed and loud, later on they seemed to mute that down a lot.

Is this true, a fact?

Well at the least it is true that I heard it in theater way back with the “hell” sounding a lot louder. I suppose there is always some chance it could just be that some theaters had speakers that had some sort of spikes that matched his voice and the way he said that and it made it sound more boosted, although that seems far less likely and reasonable of an explanation than that they just dampened it down a bit to not stress a semi-swear word as much or something.

This seems a little anecdotal to be included as a change here? Maybe it is more likely to be an issue with the theater you were viewing the film at, with nobody else apparently having this experience?

My little town cinema struggled with some TLJ scenes - there was pixelation during key scenes with explosions. At the larger cinemas there were no such pixelation problems.

‘Blizzard bosses reduce gamer’s ban and release prize money’:

https://www.bbc.com/news/newsbeat-50026401

It appears too little too late to be of any honest intention from Blizzard, the damage has already been done, to what signifcance, who knows?

 

Is there a reason why not many people post in here? I thought a tech news thread would be more popular on a sci-fi site like this?

<em>Star Wars: The Clone Wars</em> To Return With New Episodes
Time

I hope this doesn’t suffer from a lack of awareness or publicity due to the prominance and publicity drive for Episode IX. I haven’t seen or heard much about this series returning other than the initial announcment, and was hoping for a trailer or series of interviews for the return of The Clone Wars by now.

(Patience, I must learn patience 😉)

‘The media push for Space Movie 9: The Risening starts this week. Even if you’re sticking to quote-unquote “official” sources, you may want to consider drawing your online curtains to avoid seeing something you’d rather not. Tastes vary.’

He does later clarify…

‘(Before some clickbait movie site runs too far with this, I meant magazine covers and interviews and Force Friday this week)’
 

So it looks like we’ll be seeing some more publicity, and possibly some spoilers within later this week.

(and maybe an official trailer sometime soon too!)

They are lovely trailers, but for that the price being asked for the the blurays, they should be! 😃

I will wait until they come down in cost.
 

Many thanks to whoever posted the link in here to the official Doctor Who youtube channel - https://www.youtube.com/user/doctorwho/videos - if is fantastic, so much content on there for all fans of different Doctors, and fun moments as well 😃

The Rise of Skywalker box office results: predictions and expectations
Time

770m US
930m ‘Foreign’
1.7b total

I think it will do better than some belive. I mean, all the haters for TLJ and ‘Disney Star Wars’ will have to go watch it if only to endlessly complain and nitpick over and again for years to come.

Especially the clickbaiters, and the toxic and negative channels = more money made for the film they will hate or bullshit on. Some of them will no doubt be so hateful they will need to go see it multiple times to write down everything they will be angry about, find fault with, or dislike about it to make money themselves 😉

A fascinating video - ‘Behind the Scenes of Star Wars: The Original Trilogy ILM Special Effects Makers’:-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85MK2GDkoxo

a 1 hour documentary focusing on the people at ILM doing the special effects for the OT movies. Try not to let the length of it put you off, the video flies through the time and leaves you wanting to know more! 😃

‘Common cold stopped by experimental approach’:-

https://www.bbc.com/news/health-49682583
 

'Scientists think they have found a way to stop the common cold and closely related viruses which can cause paralysis.

Instead of trying to attack them directly, the researchers targeted an essential protein inside our cells which the viruses need to replicate.

The approach gave “complete protection” in experiments on mice and human lung cells.

However, the US-based researchers are not ready for trials in people.’

I saw this and thought it may be interesting to some here…

a breakdown of character’s screen time for TFA (I do not know if it accurate or not - I imagine it is) - ‘Star Wars Force Awakens Screen Time’:-

May also be interesting for those who like to see graphs or bars move around the screen with some chilled synth music in the background for five minutes 😉

YouTube advertises big brands alongside fake cancer cure videos’:-

https://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-trending-49483681

‘YouTube’s algorithm promotes fake cancer cures in a number of languages and the site runs adverts for major brands and universities next to misleading videos, a BBC investigation has found.’

‘Searching YouTube across 10 languages, the BBC found more than 80 videos containing health misinformation - mainly bogus cancer cures. Ten of the videos found had more than a million views. Many were accompanied by adverts.’

^ more information and other links are within the link.

 

I will aim to find some more positive news on the subject of the internet and technology next time 😃
