Help: looking for... Lego Star Wars The Resistance Rises DVD
Time

Hi Matt1618 😃

I don’t think there are many - or any - Star Wars Lego preservations on here (I am sure somebody will correct me if I am wrong on this!)

Most Lego Star Wars series are available on dvd or blu ray and so have not been preserved.

Because the site rules here says you must own the retail release (physical disc or digital download / stream subscription etc) can you not rip the series from the Disney channel and put them onto a disc yourself?

Or a USB drive etc?

There may be public / private torrent sites that have already done this too?
 

Edit - would ‘Star Wars Lego’ sites be of assistance for this, to point you in the correct direction, etc?
 

Good luck my friend.

4K restoration on Star Wars

I’d be very interested in some sort of poll or at least seeing what everyone would rate the 4K HDR Disney+ versions. For comparison maybe include a rating for other versions as well?

Do we have polls on here? I have seen older posts where polls have taken place on this site - but I do not know how to create one.

It would be quite fun and helpful to have.

JEDIT: Just finished watching it…I actually found it kind of disappointing.

Yes - I was expecting a little more, if only becuase they appear to be a great set of guys and the previous videos on their channel are usually of a very high quality, insightful and funny too 😃

Industrial Light & Magic - Traditional Matte Paintings’?:-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQTdOcYK9Ds - at the Thomas Thiemeyer youtube channel. (26 mins)
 

About (from the video description):-

“Some rare video clips of the matte paintings done for the original Star Wars trilogy and other films. Traditional movie tricks. A topic that still fascinates me. Here I have collected some, sometimes quite rare, video clips for classic matte painting in Star Wars films.”
 

^ Does anyone know what documentary it is from - or mainly from? I don’t know much about it apart from it is a fascinating watch on how some of the effects were achieved for our beloved films.

Worst Ideas in Star Wars/Good Ideas that went Horribly Wrong

Making changes to the films outside the scope of fixing technical issues or mistakes.

Other changes - grand revisionist ‘visions’ claimed by man in charge of the studio and director of only one film… have tainted them, especially in not making availaible the unaltered theatrical originals…

(I think I may be preaching to the choir? 😃)

Most pointless SE change?
Time

Maclunkey!

It is even shot differently to the other cmaera angles and distances in the film:-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mH19gKo7W7w - by SparkySywer 😃

^ it is like ‘let us have a close up of Greedo’s mouth so everybody will notice the difference and maybe more likely to pay for Disney+!’ with no thought to how to it affects the scene or story. This is the 5th version for this scene now… Lucas has to be trolling fans - maybe he was annoyed with us fans over the furore with the changes and colour for the 2011 blu rays? (he did this 4K version around 2012?)

 

As ooj sais elsewhere it is surprising there has not been much information on these new and further changes on the official sites and social media sites.

Andrei Rublev. It’s truly an incredible film. Words can’t give it the due it deserves.

The 1966 version? (I am not sure if they have remade this - like so many others?)

It is a film I have been meaning to view for a long time, yet have never quite got around to it. I think I really must rectify this as many people say good things about Tarkovsky’s film.
