Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *

The situation with jar jar and Ahmed best does not give excuse for poor treatment of Rose tico and Kelly Tran.

I didn’t say that, I’m just curious if SilverWook do the same with Jar Jar hating posts, not that he shouldn’t do with Rose hating posts.

And if he doesn’t follow Jar Jar posts, that’s fine. I’m not here to say how moderators should act, it was not my intention, I was just curious, that’s all.

You’re on my radar with this anti-Rose stuff. Not a good place to be.

Do you keep track of people who dislike Jar Jar Binks too? Just curious.

Are you aware of how bad the Rose bashing online has become in the past 18 months?

Of course, people dislike a character and bash them online, like we’re doing with Jar Jar Binks for 20 years. That’s why I asked.

And before you say something about the actress, which is not the character and not mentioned by the previous poster, the Jar Jar actor suffered similar harassment, just like Kelly.

Cheers guys, the reason why I asked is because when I watched Harmy’s version on my 1080p Plasma I noticed some of the flaws but it seemed okay. But watching it last night on a 4K Oled TV…I dunno, I noticed the imperfections more sadly and weirdly it looked like everyone had too much make up on.

Watching that YouTube video above and Obi-Wan looks like he’s got a good tan compared to the other versions.

Whilst I prefer the pacing of the original version, I’m thinking of just relenting and having the Blu-Ray’s as my go-to versions now due to the quality.
Also in ANH, unsure if it’s because I’ve watched the special edition a lot, but the edit of the theatrical just before Luke gets to the Falcon seems really jarring without the Jabba scene now - help me! lol

Have you tried 35mm restoration projects? Harmy edits are wonderful and were my way to go for the whole OT for some time, but 4K77 and 4K83 are way superior options for SW and RotJ IMO, I recommend you to try those.

So just curious, this is obviously going to be taking a while. To my knowledge, the only real 35mm fan release that has happened so far is the Renegade Grindhouse. But as I understand it, some fans have done their own basic color corrections of that release.

Is there anything out there that anybody’s done with some basic color correction or cleanup to hold people over in the meantime while this gets finished? I’ve seen some impressive-looking versions with just a basic color correction applied, but these have been hard to track down for people and are a bit more, shall we say, ephemeral.

Dreamaster made a cleaned up version of the Grindhouse with color corrections, that’s probably the best version made from 35mm transfers out there. Although, some problems are still present, like the red pulse on the first reels, which couldn’t be fixed, I guess.

While I still prefer the Harmy’s Despecialized 2.0, I think Dreamaster did a fantastic job on what was possible with the Grindhouse.

Disney to buy 20th (21st) Century Fox? (Disney has now bought them - 14 Dec '17)

Seriously, how long do we wait before drafting a new petition that simply opens with “Dear Walt Disney Company”?

I was so certain the Unaltered Original Trilogy would be announced during Celebration for the 40th anniversary. While standing in various lines I would mention it during conversation and always the same response… blank stares. It was like I was speaking latin or something. I don’t know if they just had no idea what I was talking about or were just devoted to whatever is said to be the official version that the idea of anything else was blasphemous.

I know how that is. I learned to stop bringing the subject up at Celebration after I started getting belligerent and pedantic responses toward it. It’s a truly sad state of affairs.

And I thought I was the one with a problem when I had more than 5 different versions of the ESB and still wasn’t satisfied. LOL
