The 4K version is INCREDIBLE.
So 4k83 is here.
Which edition wins the all round, one-copy-only, best ROTJ at the moment?
Harmy 2.5 or 4k83?
Keep in mind these are two projects aiming for two different things: Harmy has produced a stunning production, and it’s a miracle it is what it is, given how it was made. 4K83, on the other hand, and in my personal opinion, succeeds so completely at being a 4K restoration of the film you would have (and I wish I could have, were I old enough) seen in theatres. I have nothing but admiration and respect for Harmy’s DE, but for me, it’s no competition, 4K83 is THE WAY I will watch Jedi from now on.
Watched this in 4K. IMHO this is easily the best I’ve ever seen Jedi look.
The final result.
Those covers are great 😃 Would you be willing to make a variant of those without any specific special features?
I agree with Jason, those are quite nice 😃 Thanks Mark
Those are awesome, can we get the full images?
That’s awesome. Well, if ThrowgnCpr has any interest in making a trilogy set, I know I would LOVE to see that.
Finally got the discs done. I’m really happy with how they turned out.
Finally got it assembled. For some reason, when I put the new cover into my photoshop, the dimensions went wonky, so I had to piece it into the right shape.
I will post some pictures in the next couple days with the discs inside, once they’re finished drying and being burned. I’m gonna be using those really nice film reel labels for the ones inside my cover. Also, Mark, I really like that bit at the bottom on the back with the logos and all the legalese. Is there a template for that anywhere or did you have to assemble that from scratch, because having that to use for future covers would be amazing?
For sure. I’m probably gonna have two copies, since I really like both versions.
Also, if you’d like the original PSD, let me know.
Also, just a thought: you might wanna throw a stroke around the yellow Star Wars logo on the back.
No, I totally get that, man.
That looks really great. Trust me, i wasn’t in love with the back. The only thing I’d suggest is the “Harmyfilm” logo probably shouldn’t be on there. Is it the same dimensions as mine?
I mean, anyone who would like to tweak it, I’m cool with that.
So… I am really not great at photo editing, but I tried something. I picked up some interesting 3 disc blu ray cases that are Criterion width, but with the normal blu ray topper, so I built it to that. Here’s what I came up with:
Outer cover irl (pardon the bad phone quality)
Inner cover irl (again, pardon the bad phone quality)
Has anyone made/ is anyone willing to make either matching covers and labels or even a 3-in-1 set for the Grindhouse trilogy? I think they’re a really interesting presentation of the films, and it’d be nice to have them uniform on the shelf.
Awesome, I really like the designs for this. I’d really like to see what you’d come up for covers for the individual cases for this set.
Quick Question: Any tips on how you’d print the box out, such as what the dimensions of the front and back should be when printed out?
To be honest, that site seems too shady for me, so I’m just gonna forget it.
Those are nice, I will download those.
These may be of interest for those looking for a matching set of covers…
Looks a cool site - for other series too. You may have to register/join to be able to download them, though.
Those do look cool. Yeah, I’ve tried using that site before, and even after I registered they wouldn’t let me access content.
Could anyone suggest or recommend (or point in the direction of, what have you) Blu Ray covers/labels that aren’t directly connected to a particular version or restoration? I’d like to find a nice set where I don’t have to go hunting when a new version of the DE comes out, for example. Thanks!
Part of the issue is that many “complete” sets were made a while ago by members that may no longer be active, so they’re not getting updated as new movies come out.
Also, bear in mind that BR covers have different dimensions than DVD covers, so just swapping out the logo means your cover will be too short and maybe also too narrow(?) for a DVD case.
You are right, that’s why I went off of actual DVD cover dimensions, took the blu ray cover, and centered it on the template, then matched the excess area to the color of the cover, which thankfully was black. The more I think about it though, the more I’m thinking about it, the more I may just focus on I-VI matching covers, and let the Disney era stuff use the original covers. I have a folder of different covers, and I ran across something called “The Graphite Collection” and I kinda like the look of that. It also has matching covers for the Bonus Features disc and the 2D Clone Wars DVDs.
Thanks oojason! I took your advice, found some covers meant for Blu ray and just swapped the logo for DVD. Thanks for the help!
It may be worth having a look through the blu ray covers to see if anything can be easily adapted, or asking one of the talented people on here to make a new set - in one of the request threads?
Something like this? (from the blu ray cover thread)
I’m not a fan of these - though beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and there are now full matching sets available… (in the DVD covers thread)
Good luck with it mate - hope you find something that catches your eye.
Could you point me in the direction of the proper request thread, please?
Yeah, it totally makes sense. I’m not too picky about what they look like, so hopefully can find something.
I didn’t see any DVD sets
Probably because most of us have BDs. Honestly not trying to be rude, Blu Ray just eclipsed DVD a long time ago so most people don’t bother anymore with custom DVD art.
No, I get what you’re saying. Star Wars is the only property that I still care about DVDs (With the exception of the random film/doc that I care about that somehow only released on DVD), and there are family members who love Star Wars but only have DVD, so it still makes sense to have it. Not to mention it’s just nice to be able to complete the set I’ve been working on since 2001.
So yes, I’m fully aware that DVD is not as popular, and yes Blu ray and now 4K have surpassed it. Doesn’t mean I just throw out movies. Not trying to be rude either.
