Greetings and felicitations.
This is one of those places where the 2004 and 2011 versions have eaten away the blue in his panels. In my version the blue (such as it is) has returned:
I posit that either line would have worked, and it’s just dozens of repetitions of that line which have made any other line sound wrong.
This is very hard, but here’s my new ranking:
Doing it right.
Doing it wrong.
Here’s my off-the-cuff ranking, having not had a chance to listen to Solo’s score in isolation and expecting it to climb:
I’d say that she still isn’t convinced to fight for the Rebellion in the Hologram scene. She is actually more interested in finding and rescuing her father. It is only after his death (strangely, at the hands of the Rebellion) that she decides to get the plans. I don’t think she ever really aligns with the Rebellion, more accurate to say that they both have the same objective in the end.

Rephrasing it would have solved the problem.
“Darth Vader, a young Jedi who was a pupil of mine before he turned to evil, helped the Empire hunt down and destroy the Jedi Knights.”
Now it’s awkward in a more technically correct way. Yay English!
It’s only silly now in retrospect when the PT tells us Obi-wan is such a dummy that he’s basically saying “…only a master of evil, Lord”
The word “lord” is a weird case where you wouldn’t really use it in that way (more likely “my lord”). I always saw Darth as a title used more like “general” or “master” or “count,” where people refer to them by just their title all the time. I’m not a linguist so I apologize if I’m not explaining this sufficiently, though it should be easy to understand.
That makes sense. If Darth is nothing more than a designation (like Moff or General), Obi-wan is saying that he’s no more than this designation, a mere cog in the Imperial machine.
This still doesn’t explain why he says ‘A young Jedi named Darth Vader’. I don’t think there’s a way of interpreting this as anything other than his actual name.
Puerto Rico’s Hurricane Maria death toll is over 70 times higher than the official number
This is a tragedy.
I quite liked the droid rights subplot. It’s a massive injustice in the galaxy that’s been strangely glossed over by our heroes, and to have a droid be an advocate for the cause is totally earned for me. Also, this is no protocol droid, so it probably doesn’t care what people think of it or if it’s grating. I found it refreshing that it wasn’t quiet or tactful.
This joke got me. I wouldn’t mind seeing something like this in Frink’s version.

I clearly don’t remember the theatrical look (oh wait I never saw it in theaters) but when the article says “less green” shouldn’t it say “no green?” I see no green in those pictures at all. Of course you can’t trust pictures like that, it might just be my monitor’s fault. Regardless I think color issues are way overblown, people are always trying to “fix” stuff here that doesn’t need fixing, and basically meh.
There’s still green in the new Matrix images I’ve seen.
I agree with you that sometimes, especially here, color issues can be overstated. And there have been a lot of projects here that seem to want to do away with the idea of grading itself, wanting everything to look as it might in real life. But the Matrix Bluray grading was really really over the top green. From what I’ve seen, the new images look like a nice improvement.
In this case, it’s possible that my baseline is “incorrect” being that as I said I never saw the movie in theaters. So possibly for me, it’s down to personal preference, what I’m used to basically.
With that said I barely see any green in the images shown in that review.
Really? I see a lot of green, for example this shot from the UHD release:
But other times the filmmakers wanted to merely imply the green through costume and set design, which is why the Oracle scene is otherwise very naturalistic.
This is fairly similar to how it was seen on 35mm.
The previous release had gone with a really heavy green tint for everything set in the world of the Matrix, and this destroyed the subtlety of the set and costume choices:
Lets just say i have really BIG Fucking feet.
My left foot is a size bigger than my right and it makes shoe shopping a nightmare.
I’m not even a big dude, just have annoyingly big feet.
Didn’t you hear? We’re starting a club for people with differently sized feet.
I’m pretty happy with the color as it is, and the few scenes I’ve tweaked for v2 are already done. But if you wanted to make your own alterations to the project, you’re certainly welcome to.
To put the candidate choice in movie perspective, it was like asking people online to vote on which movie they liked better, The Room or Bridge of Spies.
"I just want to watch the world burn."
I have been thinking that this is actually a big problem in politics today. People are so cynical that it’s taken for granted that government is broken and civic-mindedness is dead. Journalism is all but extinct, and truth is whatever is shouted the loudest by those in power. With this mindset, the best thing to do is look out for number one, since it’s a sucker’s game to adhere to any values or rules at all.
I think it would be really great if we started valuing things like truth, justice, and the American Way again, whatever those things mean to each individual. At least then when things go wrong we can at least say that we tried our best instead of settling for our worst.
Isn’t there a thread about why ROTJ is the best Star Wars movie? If that thread can exist, this one can too.
I think The Last Jedi is the most ambitious Star Wars movie yet. It makes cogent arguments for and against the existence of the Jedi, it truly widens the scope of the universe to include the perspective of the very rich and communicates their opportunism and human trafficking, it deftly upends the First Order and places Kylo on the throne in a way that is thematically satisfying, and it gives Rey, Poe and Finn arcs that genuinely move their stories forward.
It’s also the most visually striking of the numbered episodes with the most jaw-dropping Star Wars sequence ever put to screen.
I present the ending to one of the alternate versions of the release…the “Skywalker Lives” edition!
If it ended on the binary sunset shot, for me it would be perfect.
Heck, even if Luke dies, the placement of this scene is great.
I’ll have to pop in the Blu Ray later, but I’m not seeing it in the broadcast of the 2004 version.
It’s definitely there on the German broadcast and the Blu-ray, but it’s not very noticeable since the brightness is so low.
(BTW, I just updated the comparison gallery through this part of the film, using only shots that have additional sources added to them. I’ll finish the whole gallery someday… 😉 )
What’s the point of color correction if millions of fans don’t know how to download your releases?
So hard to upload on an outdoor torrent tracker and cloud storage?
The links are available to anyone who owns the Blu-ray and/or who is a part of this community - After working for years on this project, so I don’t feel like that is too much to ask for.
Maybe just when Obi-wan’s climbing above Anakin on the lava tower, and then Anakin looks up at him all pissed.
Thought the 4k77 was a shot by shot
It was reel by reel, to preserve the original color variability between shots.
