Just finished watching and yeah like what the above comment says not much new in terms of information. Nice to get Marcia Lucas’ input for once but otherwise not much that past documentaries haven’t already told us.

There was a bunch of stuff in the Empire episode that I had never heard before.

I haven’t seen that one yet.

So what HAVE you watched? 3 episodes have aired. You’re judging a whole series on…what…one episode? 2?

I only saw the first one so and far and sheeesh relax I didn’t know others were out yet.

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

Even if that image is from a more recent edition, the lightsaber’s been there since opening day in 1980.

I even went back to two VHS versions and even though the bulk of the lightsaber was cropped out I could make out a bit of the gripped area of the handle in the bottom corner so yes I know this wasn’t something added later

Tonight I finally noticed something that answers a question that’s bugged me literally EVERY time I’ve watched ESB until now. After Luke flies out the window I’ve constantly asked myself “how did he get his lightsaber back??” when he confronts Vader again. Well I finally got the answer. The lightsaber landed just a few feet away from where Luke pulls himself onto the platform. Never realized this until now.

Complete Comparison of Special Edition Visual Changes
Time

One last post regarding the Faces Empire tape. One thing you might notice is for some odd reason, despite that its essentially the 1993 master converted to full screen, the image is slightly stretched horizontally but I also noticed it shows slightly more image at the top. For comparison here’s a shot from the VHS…

!

…and the same shot from the GOUT converted to 4:3. I tried to get the framing accurate.

The 'Naysayer Guide’ by people who DON'T want an unaltered theatrical release of the OT
Time

I love these two I found on YouTube.

“if you think incomplete, error-ridden, scene missing, awful effects theatricals are better, then you’re either an extreme windowlicker or totally blinded by ridiculous nostalgia.”

“ Why would anyone want the superior versions to die? Sure the original SE from the 90s can die, it’s been improved since then. But even those were better than the laughable theatricals.”

Music change in Empire Strikes Back
Time

The music was slightly extended in parts beginning during the sequence where Han is being loaded onto the Slave 1. Why exactly I’m not sure. Perhaps they wanted the music to continue up til it cut back to Luke and Vader. There’s also difference in timing for the music during the actual escape too (partly due to extending Lando’s evacuation announcement). The closing cue that’s suppose to hit when it cuts to the exterior of the platform where the final duel takes place now happens about two seconds before actually cutting to the shot.

<strong>4K77</strong> - Released
Time

I have a question about the audio tracks. The version of 4K77 that I’m checking out has a track labeled as 1993 Laserdisc Stereo. However listening to this I hear none of the alterations made for the 1993 LD. Any input on this???

There was a mislabeling in tracks 14 and 15 for 4K77. Track 14 is the 1985 English Stereo Remix and Track 15 is the 1993 English Stereo Remix.

In other words: The track labeled ‘1993 remix’ is the 1985 remix and the track labeled ‘1985 remix’ is the 1993 remix

Ahh ok. Sadly the one I have lacks a track labeled 1985 remix but I guess that’d be the 1993 labeled mix then.

Info: Films re-released with alterations

Jaws (1975)'s 5.1 mix heard on all streaming versions uses a different recording of Man Against Beast from the one in the theatrical mono.

That would be more a subject for this thread…

…but yes you are correct. There was apparently tape damage to the master of the original take so when the film was remixed in 2000 an alternate take was used. The original take was restored for the 2015 Intrada CD however. A shame Universal didn’t bother to restore it to the film for the UHD release last year.
