Hmmmm… Living in Canada I’m getting “Maclunkey” on the D+ site on my PC, but get this guy when I stream from my Roku and FireTV stick. I would’ve assumed their new 4K master would be the basis for all streaming versions; guess not.

Each Streaming service would have to update their master file. Reportedly YouTube already has changed it so the others are likely too at some point in the future.

That Greedo dummy pic is from Disney+ on my FireTv stick. It was “maclunkey” when it launched on the 12th, and this guy the other night. Last night it was back to “maclunkey”…seems Disney+ have multiple versions for different markets, and they’re getting mixed up at times.

-Hyperspace was a separate dimension which did not directly interact with Real Space

“Traveling through hyperspace ain’t like dusting crops, boy! Without precise calculations we could fly right through a star or bounce too close to a supernova and that’d end your trip real quick, wouldn’t it?”

I haven’t seen or read GoT, but could someone draw a rough analogy using Star Wars to describe what about the show seems to have gone wrong? No spoilers, so the analogy should be indirect. (I.e., not just swapping character names.)

This season of GOT, especially the last few episodes, is the last +/- 20 minutes of Revenge Of The Sith. Issues developed over 8 seasons dealt with in seconds, people acting out-of-character out of the blue as the show is out of time, instead of allowing character changes to happen organically. Hard to say more without spoilers.

The Silverscreen Edition v1.0 is on Youtube in 720p and the fact that Disney/Lucasfilm/whoever did not (so far) succeed in taking it down is interesting in and of itself is it not?

Incredibly interesting! I’d love to know the full story.

I assume the 1 down vote the video has was from George himself 😃

I meant my spleen acct 😃 Or, more accurately, when I put my username and Firefox autofills my password, it won’t accept it; and the password recovery isn’t working for me.

It’s around, but under heavy load due to a 6w-long freeleech.

I’m really enjoying watching these 35mm experiences. However I’m struggling to find alternate sources for raiders. Other than the one private tracker (which I’d love to use one day) can anyone point me in the right direction. Thanks

Little surreal - Entertainment Weekly article on this:
http://www.ew.com/article/2016/02/16/star-wars-restore-1977

That IS pretty surreal. Hard to say what kind of effect a major publication going to LFL for comment on these projects is going to have, though. Hopefully it will show them there is an interest in, and desire for, a proper restoration; and not just cause them to get all ‘cease and desist-y’
