What is wrong with Attack of the Clones?

The fireplace scene in which Anakin confesses his love for Padmé is a perfect portrayal of how an extremely intelligent and emotionally repressed young man would express unrequited love, especially an unrequited love bottled up inside for almost ten years. In other words, the romantic dialogue is exceedingly realistic given Anakin’s unique situation.

Something happening in a movie being realistic doesn’t make it interesting to watch. Obi-Wan leaving to take a wee in the middle of a conversation with Anakin would be realistic, but not interesting.

Right. We are not giving them directions or writing a contract. We are hoping to raise awareness and increase discussion, and despite low chances of success, hoping that we might get some kind of information. A comment that is less worthless/ambiguous than the recent Kennedy interview.

If, someday, they release a 2k OOT (first of all, I would still be thrilled), it won’t be because, "hah! You ****ers should’ve specified 4K! Gotcha!"
I know people still feel burned about GOUT, but that didn’t happen due to a misunderstanding.

I don’t think Lucasfilm will release the theatrical releases on Blue-ray, at least as long as Kennedy is president. Because of her relationship to George Lucas and him appointing her president, she doesn’t want to touch what she sees as “his movies”.

And if it does ever happen, it wont be until 2020, when Disney gets the distribution rights to Episodes 5 & 6.

Getting Star Wars fans talking about it can’t hurt though.

She wouldn’t be doing anything to his movies, though. She would simply be including the original versions alongside his versions. EDIT: crissrudd beat me to it.

Welcome to the forums, btw!

Thanks for the welcome 😃

Lucas has said that, to him, the original releases don’t exist anymore, the current versions are THE movies and he talked how he wants that to be the only version that people see and how eventually all the VHS tapes of the old version will burn out and be thrown away. He underestimates the power of the internet and passionate fans.

So it seems to me like Lucas doesn’t want people watching the theatrical releases, and Kennedy is going to honor his wish.

But Kennedy is 63 years old, and will retire or change jobs within the next decade or two, so the new blood that steps in could have a different stance.

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

Hey guys,

I’m making a box set of the Despecilzed editions using some of the awesome art that’s available here on the forms.

But I’m completely new to disk burning and could use some pointers.

I have Toast 11 Titanium, a blue ray burner, and some 25 GB blue-ray disks.

Ideally, I’d like to have some Star Warsy menus to select stuff like subtitles and some menu music. Is there somewhere I can download a complete disk ISO (am I using that term right?) that someone has had the expertise and spent the time to add the menu bells and whistles? I think I would then just burn the ISO onto the disk and avoid the whole process of menu creation or dropping the mkv file into the burning software. Ideally, the ISO would have the most up to date versions of the films.

Any help will be appreciated, thanks!

Edit: I found this thread and oh boy is it a deep rabbit hole.

I’ve already made my cases and bought my discs but seeing what everyone else has done, I might have to remake them and buy different discs, ha!
