I think it looks good… The only one I am a bit iffy on is the binary sunset.

Have it how you want it but after looking at the original theatrical footage and then the techni-disc and then when I saw the van-ling Dvd menu colors I decided the Dvd menu color was the best reference. You might not feel the same way but I think it’s the best reference for that shot an as is the massasi temple also.

The DVD menu colors were painstakingly recreated from the best sources according to a guy who worked on them, so I would personally default to them for reference. However, this isn’t a restoration, its the first step for a fan edit, so it’s up to how it makes Ady feel.

i don’t get the “obi-wan should never refer to R2 by name”. honestly, it doesn’t change anything, because they’re still in the very same room and Anakin calls him by his name so… it just seems a bit pointless to me.

It’s an effort to reconcile Obi-Wan not “recognizing” R2 in ANH, when his actions in ANH can just as easily be interpreted as either Obi-Wan teasing R2 or just simply not caring about droids all that much.

i get that, i just don’t think it’s that effective in making it believable he wouldn’t remember R2 by Star Wars.

Oh no, I don’t think it’s effective either.

Would a Netflix capture or the iTunes release be higher quality?

I imagine the 4K Dolby Vision iTunes release is going to beat it out. I don’t think there’s a need to preserve the Netflix version.

Every shifting aspect ratio movie I’ve run across is flat on their digital copies, Nolan, Ghostbusters, etc.

Is the 4K iTunes copy flat? If so, my bad!

Yes, I can’t think of an iTunes copy that shifts aspect ratios for any movie. I can confirm TDK personally though.

This Shot is flipped Horizontally. It makes a lot more sense flopped with the planet on the left and the guy on the right… But It’s your decision what you want to do about that one…

They actually flipped the trees for the SE, I guess for lighting reasons, but it still doesn’t seem to match the lighting on the guy or the ships.

The Silver Screen Edition, the SE is what’s bad.

Chewielewis say: “On the SE and the GOUT it’s a clean cut”. And in his picture example, it’s written: Special Edition Team Blue.

I missed that part. That makes no sense, since I can’t beliece any film damage would have happened between the creation of the SE and the DVD version 7 years later.
