RU.08, I’m not saying you’re wrong because I have no proof to say otherwise, but you cannot compare your scream 2 nor subtitle comparison with a special effect shot.
Your Scream 2 example falls flat because it was a simple retake for a Made for TV version that was likely spliced in on video.
The subtitle comparison falls flat because it is standard to not have burned-in subtitles for international releases or home video. Multiple IPs are made for this reason as well as safety copies.
I’m with everyone else: this looks like DNR and / or artificial brightening of the highlights. Or maybe the lightsaber was masked off and brightened in the telecine process, but I seriously doubt it’s a recomposite done solely for home video.
