“Every single shot has a visual effect”

I don’t think that’s the case for TFA (besides obvious like coloring). And even if it is, it blends with practical so well you can barely tell the difference.

It’s quite possible that it’s the same thing for TFA, but it’s so common nowadays that it’s not even worth mentioning, pretty different from how it all was in 1999.

At the very least I feel like there’s a lot of little, quality of life type things that go into modern movies, like painting out wires and prop operators and alike.

The film Star Wars wasn’t marketed as “Episode IV: A New Hope” until around the time the prequels were released. So they definitely would not be OOT.

The last OOT VHS release was probably the Faces set.

The Faces tapes say A New Hope on them, but the Laserdiscs don’t for some reason.

…*checking for verification.

Okay, on the spine yes. But only on the spine.

The cassette label also had the ‘A New Hope’ subtitle.

Comparing the theatrical posters and the DVDs on my shelf… I guess I need to make some custom covers.
Also, the 1995 LaserDisc does say A New Hope, but on the back:

(The 1993 release does not)

Huh. I guess I never noticed that.

That said, a recompositing of the original film elements for an OUT wouldn’t offend me, but I also don’t tend to think it is necessary.

People on this site are the only ones I’ve ever seen that claim to be offended by recompositing the original effects. I don’t think they’re bothered by the TNG blurays though.

I am. I’m even offended that To Kill a Mockingbird removed optical grain during push-ins.

Personally my friends and I didn’t like the first Hobbit movie, so I’m honestly amazed the sequels got made.

I am like the lone apologist for those films.

I picked up the Extended Cut DVD’s the other day from Walmart and I just got through the first one last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. I haven’t gotten through the entire trilogy yet, but if the next two movies are as good as the first, I’ll put them on par with the LOTR Trilogy.

They aren’t as good as LOTr, I freely admit that. They have lots of problems, and there are huge chunks of them that you could cut out. But the accusation that they’re as bad as the Star Wars prequels is frankly just insane. The casting alone puts them head and shoulders above.

They have some of the same issues, being prequels and all, but their major faults are being terrible adaptations of the book.

I think part of them are terrific adaptations of the book; the first hour or so of the first movie is almost word-for-word. The stuff they added in that’s actually in Tolkien is pretty good; the Dol Goldur stuff, etc. The material they just added to pad things out like the inter-species romance, not so much.

Tonally they are entirely different. Anything that’s from the Appendices are irrelevant, because that then becomes an adaptation of the Appendices + The Hobbit.
