I don’t know if this thread here is the right place, but I think I once saw fan edit covers of these old vhs covers (Digital Remastered THX Edition) somewhere here.

Does anyone know if these covers still float somewhere around? I searched for them for quite some time now, but couldn’t find them in a decent quality.

The 1995 ‘Executor’ VHS tin box-set covers 😃 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKIWGE_1Aic)
 

The talented FrankT knocked up a superb set of these - which can be found here:-

and I think HotRod may have knocked up a set too - quite some time ago - so it may be worth PMing him about that.
 

Nice! Thank you very much for the quick and helpful reply, oojason!

4K restoration on Star Wars

Is my mind playing tricks on me or does the main title sound a little fuller/richer in TFA? Could they have remixed the score?

I’m also noticing a lot more obvious grain than on the blu-ray.

Honestly that would be awesome. It was a real bummer when I was sitting in the midnight premiere of TFA back in 2015, only to get disappointed by the low opening theme. There was no energy behind the music like there is with the ROTJ opening theme, for example. Same goes with TLJ.

Small details that took you <em><strong>FOREVER</strong></em> to notice in the <em>Star Wars</em> films
Time

Talking about Mace Windu on Geonosis: In the scene when he goes straight to the balcony where Dooku and Fett are standing on, there always seemed to be something off with Windu in the shot where we see him from behind. Maybe my eyes are tricking me, but I just noticed recently that Windu may seem to be CGI. It’s just the way he looks and moves.

Disney+ streaming platform : <strong>Star Wars content</strong> &amp; various info
Time

I made different experiences, up until now. People I know, family members and friends are always calling the movies by their episode titles when they talk about the Star Wars saga films. Not “The Empire Strikes Back”, not “the third movie from the Prequels”, … they call them Episode 1 - 8 (9). So from a marketing point of view, it would have been consequent to finish the Skywalker saga with episode titles and let them stand as what they are: one big story about the Skywalker family. Besides that, it sounds more like a drama or a poem. And to me, that was the origin of Star Wars.

Does the behind the scenes footage look restored to anyone else?

And a pro SE crank in the chat already…

Yes, looks that way to me, too. And there are certain BTS scenes I never saw before. And I saw A LOT.
A few months ago there were rumors that Lucasfilm was digging in their archives to preserve a lot of material. I think this footage they are showing right now is a big indicator that those rumors were true.

The Phantom Menace - Theatrical version scanned in 4K
Time

Take your time! It’s already awesome that this movie is getting scanned and - at long last - I’m going to see the true theatrical release with its correct colors. I don’t care what others say, but TPM is my favourite PT movie, and one of my favourite SW films right after the OT. I connect with so many great memories when the film was released in 1999. And it is the only PT movie that actually LOOKS like a movie (reason: recorded on film print 😃) Most of the effects aged very well. Especially in comparison with AOTC and ROTS.
