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

The Last Jedi: Official Review and Opinions Thread ** SPOILERS **
Time

Saw TLJ at the cinema, midnight showing and whilst there were really good bits, the silly humour seemed to stand out too much. So I purchased a 4TB Hard Drive in preperation for doing a re-edit. Had grand designs to remove large portions of the opening battle even. So I settled down to watch it again tonight with the missus and…I bloody well loved it! Have some of the edits been tweaked? Been toned down from the theatrical somehow?

To be honest I actually enjoyed it more than The Force Awakens(which I love) because of the sheer depth it adds to the star wars mythos. Absolute cracking film and kinda ashamed I hated it so much. Maybe sleep deprived midnight showings are not the answer lol

Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker - Discussion <em>NON SPOILER THREAD</em>
Time

Good interview with JJ above, but I cannot help but think all these theories of alt right groups lowering the score on Rotten Tomatoes is a bunch of tosh.
The film wasnt hated by a large section of fans because it had too many women in prominent roles - what a silly thing to get upset about. Instead I believe that fans got upset with the same things that bewildered me…lack of consistent tone, pissing over all the good work from The Force Awakens, making Luke wanna murder his nephew and over the top comedy - the same comedy that was originally in ANH but the editors saw fit to remove.

Harmy's RETURN OF THE JEDI Despecialized Edition HD (AVCHD DVD9 &amp; NTSC DVD5 available!!! SEE FIRST POST!!!)

Hi SteveE,

If you are looking for the NJVC ISOs, this is the wrong thread. Go here instead.

If you are having trouble with ROTJ 2.5, it isn’t in ISO form. There are MKV, AVCHD, and NTSC DVD5 versions.

In that case, you need to follow this guide for the procedure and go to this guide for the relevant links. It won’t be as fast as using torrents, but the file integrity will be much more reliable.

Can’t help with the Demonoid issue.

This is absolutely brilliant - thank you ever so much for your help 😃

When downloading ANH and TESB though, I did download ISO’s of the film, special features…everything. But from what you are saying I’m better off downloading the MKV? What do you mean by a more reliable file integrity?

Has it not occurred to anyone that Kylo Ren might have been bullshitting Rey about her parents?
Why should we trust anything that Kylo Ren says?

I pondered this too and I kinda hope JJ Abrahams advises this in Episode 9. Basically states and reminds us that the Sith are deceitful. If anyone can do it then JJ can. Maybe he’ll bring Laurence Kasdan back on board.

When reading quotes from Rian Johnson he just seems to totally miss the point. He advises that he didnt’t want Rey to be part of the Skywalker blood line. Well duh, neither did most people…but how about making her Obi-Wan’s daughter. Thus linking up to a potential new spin off. Maybe JJ an swing the new script into that ark.

One other thing that Johnson said was that he wrote the script for The Last Jedi before TFA…and it shows sadly 😦 Cause every plot point in TFA is well and truly pissed up the wall.

Episode VIII : The Last Jedi - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

Saw it last night at a midnight showing and after really enjoying The Force Awakens and Rogue One, I had high hopes for this. Massive hopes because I was looking forward to a film with a similar tone to TFA but I came out of the cinema with ‘Phantom Menace’ level of bewilderment.

Some things in this film even reminded me of Superman 4. :gag:

Really disappointing for me. I’ve heard many reviews say ‘the most un-star wars film’ but when I watch Star Wars, I kinda wanna see Star Wars. Massive shame.
The Porgs were a definete exercise by Disney to enter that Toy Market. May as well as called them Hatchimals and be done with it.

The beginning…took me right out the film with the conversation with Po and General Hux, turning Hux from a fearsome Adolf Hitler type figure into a parody within the first 2 minutes.
Luke just chucking away the Saber - metaphorically it seems this film was metaphorically dicing and throwing away all the goodwill from The Force Awakens. Getting rid of Snoke, throwing away the Sabers, acknowledging that anyone can use the force rather than just the Jedi or the Sith.

The ending with the kids looking up to the Sky and having a ring with the Rebel insignia reminded me of the many adverts you see on Disney Channel “be a rebel today with new whizz bang light saber from Mattell” or whatever.

It’s literally Episode 5 and Episode 6 in one film

Ade Edmondson…I’m a massive fan of Bottom which was years ago of course, but I’m used to British Officers being chocked off in the first scene and if they do last the whole film. At least have someone who isnt going to remind you of being hit over the head with a frying pan by his mate Richie.

About the kids at the end…despite this being a complete re-invention of the Star Wars and being the most un-star wars film there is. Even the prequels had a better tone (but awful execution) - but despite all that, it’s the first star wars film with actual swearing!

Princess Leia, sure, she’s a force user but it’s never been established she’s had training. But even so, could anyone survive being in Space? I actually quite liked the fact they didnt kill her off as everyone expected it. But crikey, a massively cringeworhy moment.
A strange, weird film.
Yoda…like I said, TPM level of bewilderment. The Puppet was better when it had flames around him as if the film-makers realised it just wasnt working.
BB8 piloting an AT-ST - jesus christ.

I have to see it again to confirm I wasnt being delusional by the 12:01AM start.

A fan edit though would save it though…just remove the endless comedy. Leia proving anyone can breath in space and the Luke slapstick.

STAR WARS: EP VI -RETURN OF THE JEDI &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>NOW IN PRODUCTION</strong>
Time

A massive shame that the prequels won’t be done because to me, doing Episode 1, 2 and 3 represents a major challenge. Lets face it, the OT is absolute class and if truth be told, only minor changes are needed - if any. Whilst you are massively talented and it’s very cool seeing all your amendments, the Prequels are crying out for this attention.
Use your talents on the films which really need it.

Star Wars Despecialized Editions - Custom Bluray Set
Time

well to be honest, I’ve downloaded the Individual Discs (25gb) as opposed to the one big download of 50GB. So just use Disc 1 and 2 art (that’s what im doing). I didnt get 3Disc Blu Ray cases.
As for the other three titles, A New Hope has already been done by JMoomer on Page 21 of this thread 😃
I was merely inspired by his stunning work

Star Wars Despecialized Editions - Custom Bluray Set
Time

Loving the Moomer Blu-Ray label but I see that he has only done them for ANH. I did contact this particular user to no avail so I’m going to try and replicate the style and tone for TESB and ROTJ but I’m running into problems.

Firstly, based on the image below, what is the font of the text that runs around the outside?
Finally, is there a free font that would be like the bit which says "DISC ONE - MAIN FEATURE"
I’ve tried FreeSansOne, Acre Medium, Cicle and abeezee with no success.

Tearing my hair out here! So any help is appreciated.

This looks wonderful I must admit, but could someone please advise me of where I would go to download these? I have a myspleen account and I was waiting for the Blu-Ray of ROTJ to come out before investing in a Blu-Ray burner, but this looks wonderful and a perfect compliment to Harmy’s work.

I plan to burn copies for myself (using proper Blu-Ray cases no less) but also to give a copy to a friend who’s a star wars nut, but is going through a tough time - what a wonderful suprise this would be.

EDIT: Just found the links on MySpleen and will continue to seed for a while. Unbelievable work and many, many thanks to all involved.

kk650's Star Wars Saga: Regraded and Semi-Specialized
Time

What a wonderful idea and something I've been wanting to do myself but never really starting it!

Really like the idea of watching the films with only the good special edition enhancements - of course this is subjective but I'm going to be using these to produce my own hybrid version which will essentially be Harmys version but with the special edition space battles and this versions intro to Mos Eisley.

Could anyone PM me the torrent? I don't have access to teh paradox due to ISP. Or maybe they are on MySpleen?

Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW
Time

ROTJ is now in the bag!! :) Doing well on downloading the others too.

However I now have more problems :) ANH is 19.7GB and ESB is 17.8GB. After a bit of research I believe I need a Dual Layer Double Sided DVD...but after even more research I believe these arent publicly available??!?!!

Basically I want my set to be all singing all dancing in nice Blu-Ray boxes (even though they're not HD) as I saw someone do that on a Google image. Really give the set the respect it deserves.

But how do I go about putting them onto DVD's? Is a way around it to buy some blank Blu-Rays and put each film on there?

EDIT: Damn, didnt realise these were HD! Done a bit more digging and they are!!! So basically I just get a Blu-Ray drive now and burn it accordingly????????????????????????????????

i must be really unlucky guys because I'v been trying to get this for over a year now with no success. I'v tried googling 756A3641E063D773ADFF18BFC73E0901FA14C24Fuwith no success - it goes to a site but then when you try and download it, it times out.

I do have a Myspleen account and I've had Bit Torrent open for over 24 hours but no-one's seeding. Could someone pretty, pretty please seed it??? I'll leave my computer on permanently to let others download it too, I'm that desperate to download this.

PLEASE!!! :)
