Ah some of my favourite things, Arrow Video artwork and 70s Star Wars posters! A lot of nice stuff here. Are there any good online print shops for this sort of thing in the UK ? My own efforts to make these didn’t quite work out, though they will do for now.
Not having a good day, here’s some Meco https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecuKOcPzAJ8
I don’t like any of them, I am on the side of remastering the history no matter how ugly it gets. It all took time and effort. This other stuff… it’s all junk, purely junk. The hilarious part is there are still continuity errors and things like R2 shots being recycled they could have got away with fixing. Instead of logical things it’s just nonsensical madness. Some things seem to have a logic yet others don’t. Like minor things are screwed with but the sabres have never been repainted. Why change once Bespin window but not the next? And then there are pink blades that change colour shot to shot… good grief.
Also, this part scared the crap out of me when I was… 4 maybe? I can’t remember how old I was.
This is the best scene ! XD
I always enjoy Jedi but it starts to sag in the middle, Dagobah and parts of the Endor moon kill the pacing. But I forget all that once Luke loses his cool and that music swells.
Guess this will do for an introduction, but I’m not sure what this really means any more. Star Wars in a way has been my number one interest for probably 20-plus years. We used to read the old Technical Journal book and play Dark Forces II. I had the Empire soundtrack on a copied cassette tape. I had my favourite minor alien characters in action figure form. But Star Wars isn’t what it used to be, and after growing out of the phase in which The Phantom Menace was an acceptable movie to watch things get hazy.
Those original three films are still fresh in my mind of course, and I don’t have to watch the GOUT anymore, thank the maker. But these days it’s becoming a bigger franchise than I care for; perhaps it’s age but the latest instalments are merely passable. People say you’re not a fan for this. But then again people like Revenge of the Sith. What does being a Star Wars fan mean? I don’t know. I’m a fan of Star Wars, it was an indy film that came out in the late 1970s.
