There was actually a small change made after the theatrical release that was in all home video editions

Whenever you see the hospital exterior earlier in the movie the cross was changed to white unlike how it was in the theatrical release where it was red colored, due to complaints from the actual red cross corporation

Interesting! Some Lucas-esque revisionism here. This film is one of my all time favorites so it’s awesome to learn new stuff like this even today.

I’m curious, what’s wrong with the home video versions which would require a scan of the 35mm?

The original/current BD heavily screwed up the color timing and contrast, reminds me of The Matrix’s original BD in a way.

I assume they used the 2.1 transfer as a base, as the credits use the SM3 font rather than the original. Ironically, the 2007 Blu-Ray was way too “Blue.” These issues were fixed in the “Mastered in 4K” BD release in 2014, but only for that BD and the eventual 4K release. So the 2017 legacy collection uses the 2007 transfer, unfortunately.

It’s pretty interesting, seeing a film you’ve known your entire life in a completely new way. It legitimately looks like an actual film now, rather than an extended TV special.

I actually own a camera rip myself, got it from a bootleg DVD at a goodwill. It’s very blue, similar to Notelu’s copy.

The Rise of Skywalker: Ascendant (Released)

Outstanding!

I watched the 1080p ver. with a friend last night who’s not really into the editing game, and coming from two nerds who didn’t really like the theatrical, we were both very impressed. Even a minor change such as a vastly improved color grade, can push your enjoyment of a film that much more. Congrats to everyone involved in making this a worthy conclusion to the “Skywalker Saga.”

I don't think Revenge Of The Sith is as good as everyone says it is.

Imo its the most engaging of the trilogy, but also the least interesting in story and especially art direction. The first half is pretty dry and confusing for a newbie, unless you tuned in for a short micro-series that aired on a kid’s network. Anakin’s turn feels like it was written in 5 minutes, too sudden and not gradual at all. Too much time was spent on the Grievous stuff as well as stupid filler stories leading up to this point. It really makes me wish TPM and most of AOTC weren’t such time-wasters. There are some standout moments that I legitimately love, but it’s not definitely not Star Wars, nor TESB.
