There seems to be an obvious answer in all this that is very sensible and also everyone wins in some way…

I think Mike may have finally found the solution to “I want”, “you want”, “we want” ok rip up the contracts let’s do this!

It’s a fair call on the cat and mouse play, well done!

Going back last year some conference, there was a guy from Sony going on about 4k and HDR and stuff and where things are headed for home video. I said to him “But like a lot of these films don’t look the same anymore…” He said “oh it’s just a bit of fun” so there you have it, a bit of fun. Well perhaps you can give them a better version of serious fun 😉

Considering the Sony discs are, by far, the best UHD discs out there…

Pearl Harbor - Director's Cut in HD
Time

alexp120 said:

This link is a comparison between the theatrical cut and the director’s cut.

https://www.movie-censorship.com/report.php?ID=1971890

The long and the short of it is this:
The director’s cut is approx. 69 seconds longer than the theatrical cut and there are scenes exclusive in the Director’s cut. However, some scenes from the theatrical cut have been extended and others have been trimmed.

???

I know the differences. That’s not what I was asking about. Did you read what I wrote?

Pearl Harbor - Director's Cut in HD
Time

HBO is now showing the Director’s Cut in HD, supposedly. I don’t have HBO but this would be the first I’ve ever heard of it airing in HD ever. Does anyone have it and could check it out?

Would be nice to do a combo of it and the official blu to make a great looking HD version. Not sure how you’d go about making it 23.976 instead of 29.97, though.

Anyone?

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

Not sure why so many folks aren’t understanding Luke’s death. He didn’t wear out from mental exhaustion, he willed himself to the force, just like Obi-Wan, and he said he was going to do it to Kylo beforehand, just like Obi-Wan did to Vader. And clearly he intends to haunt Kylo.

Last I checked, Obi-wan was killed by Vader.

Luke did something we’ve never seen any other Jedi do before. He projected a solid version of himself across unimaginable distances and could interact with Leia and even Threepio. That had to come with a price. In the end, Luke saved the day one last time and went out a hero.

I didn’t get that from the movie at all. If that had been communicated more clearly to the audience it might not have felt so insulting to me.

It wasn’t. And repeat viewings don’t help

Oh. Ok.

And we’re supposed to believe that Leia Poppins coming back to life and speeding through space didn’t kill her?

This movie is an utter joke.

You’re in the spoiler thread. Perhaps you don’t need sunglasses but reading glasses.

For a film that hasn’t come out to the general public yet it may have been somewhat of a surprise to see that review with the content included (especially your first line of the spoilers you posted).

It may have been better / a little more considerate to have stated that you have seen film beforehand - then left a fair large blank space between that and the start of your spoilers - to give fellow members a choice.

It’s…a…spoilers…thread.

I didn’t realize its inconsiderate to post spoilers in the spoilers thread.

I’m a forum moderator, (see sig file) I have to peek in here once in a while. Especially this week. 😛

Then Godspeed Silverwook. 😂😂😂

Here’s my spoiler-filled bullet-pointed reviewed:

 

Edit by moderator - digitalfreaknyc has seen The Last Jedi already - ahead of it’s general release date.

If you want to know what he thought of it then scroll down (it does contain spoilers and events from the film) if you don’t want to see that… then you may want to bypass this post…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

spoilers begin here…

 

 

Luke dying is complete bullshit. It’s not explained. You have no idea it’s coming. And he deserved far more, as a character.

We didn’t need the burp.

BB-H8 was pointless.

I don’t get why DJ had that stutter. It wasn’t necessary…nor consistent.

Not enough Chewie.

I don’t remember anyone saying “I’ve got a really bad feeling about this.”

We needed more BB8.

Holdo says “godspeed,” I believe. Who the Hell is God?

Not enough lightsaber battles. The battle at the end of TFA was easily twice as long as the single one in this movie.

Not enough space battles.

I still don’t get why the republic ship was just sitting there forever.

Porgs are not nearly as annoying as you think they’re going to be. They’re pretty irrelevant and, honestly, didn’t need to be in the movie at all…and neither did the women who clean the temple.

The humor. There’s a lot of it. It was far too campy for a SW movie. Luke throwing the lightsaber behind him was funny…but i don’t think it’s going to hold up on multiple watches.

Again, don’t think this movie will hold up like TFA does. That one is very much a rocket-ship. I LOVED the pairings of Finn/Poe, Finn/Rey…etc.

Rose. Dear God…Rose. Go away. No one cares about you. The kiss is awkward and comes out of nowhere.

I’d love to hear about how TFA haters love this one…with lines of dialogue lifted right out of Jedi and Empire.

Why was the Emperor’s theme played during Snoke torturing Rey? Just cuz he was saying almost the same dialogue?

I was going to be extremely pissed if the movie ended with the big Falcon party when Luke just died. Fortunately it didn’t and ended on something far more poignant. However…that’s still sticking with me. Zero emotional weight. Luke deserves FAR, FAR better.

JW reused several pieces of music. I was actually surprised at how much repetition there was.

Phasma dies like a chump. She’s the Darth Maul of this trilogy. Deserved much, much better. Looked VERY cool. Did VERY little.

That’s it for now. I’ll add more if I think of more. I’ll be seeing it again on Thursday and I’ll add my thoughts.

That said, DO NOT expect massive spoilers. There is no “I am your father” moment. There are just some cool “ooh I need to see that” moments. Nothing earth shattering is revealed.

That’s why i said…temper your expectations.

 

 

spoilers end here…

Jaws The Revenge is back on Netflix next month if it needs capturing.

You know for sure that it is back on Netflix? The original cut?

Why wouldn’t it be? I can’t imagine they’d switch it out

Would you be willing to cap it? I don’t think I’ll be able to…

Of course I could. But there’s really no point in doing the whole thing. We really just need the pieces that weren’t included in the official release. Beyond that, it’s really just a “cut and paste” job.
