Thanks for the info there. Just looking at the dialogue differences topic there is really confusing to me. I almost would need a pie chart showing which versions have which 😄. For example you mentioned the 85 version has stuff from both of the previous different theatrical mixes. But I’m not sure how to determine what lines exactly would be “missing” from this version for example, out of all the possible lines of dialogue. Ditto for comparing any other versions to eachother. Is this info laid out in a more comparative/less confusing way like that anywhere?
One other question, about these audio mixes from the laserdisc being lossless. On Harmy’s 2.5 release of ANH, both the 85 and 93 mixes are 320kbps ac3. Does that count as lossless? The 5.1 70mm is about 1536kbps and 35mm stereo is 640kbps dts, for comparison.
And thanks again, it’s really interesting learning about this stuff.
