Hey guy could i get a link to the two edits. Really appreciate this.
Well. I was off work today so started this light hearted discussion and now I’m off to bed. In the end I watched the silver screen edition and the two grindhouse edition’s of the O.T. just finished TFA all on my projector and I’m all Star Wars’d out. My eyes are tired my head hurts but I love these movies. Good night peeps.
May the 4th be with you all. Anyone doing anything to celebrate? Think I’m going to bore my family with a mixed bag of movies n cartoons later.
Oh and have some beers.
The first time I saw the “Episode IV A New Hope” crawl was on the tv, and I remember my dad and I being totally confused and wondering where we could find and watch the other three movies.
The saying be careful what you wish for has never felt so poignant.
But back to topic, there where bootlegs about you must have had one, geez youyr family must have had a few bob to have a vcr back then.
I’ve just gotta chime in, those regraded shots look amazing! They look like on set photo’s rather than the Blu Ray, you gotta do the whole movie. I wish I could do it myself but my P.C. or computing talents just aint up to the job.
Keep up the amazing work Dre
Thanks for this you guys, this is a great watch.
Watched it on the projector in full hd last night and was blown away by the detail. The colours look great, really has that film feel.
Anymore to come from this great scanner?
They look great. Its like they were out of focus and you justed focused them. Amazing. Hope you so get around to doing this.
Just watched the preview and must say how great it looks. To my eyes the colours are much more pleasing and authentic.
Working on my D.I.Y. anamorphic lens for my projector and cant wait to get this version up on the “widescreen”. Good job and keep up the good work!
There are real graves and tombstones on the island, so they may used something that was already there.
Han said Luke went in search of the first Jedi temple. I’m pretty sure he found it.
On that note, it was very strange seeing a stone crucifix in one of the shots leading up to the reveal of Luke. I get that they wanted to portray the island as accurately as possible, but that was one thing that screamed ‘Earth History’ to me.
And people wouldn’t listen to me when I said the humans of the SW Galaxy were the descendants of Earthlings.
No. We are the descendants. This was a long time ago.
Rey… After 4 viewings I’m pretty sure that Rey is Han and Leia’s daughter. The way Han looks at her, the way he feels bad (or guilty?) when she says she “never thought there was this much green in the whole galaxy”, the way Leia hugs her instead of Chewie, the way Kylo Ren reacts to news of a girl helping BB-8 escape (“what girl?!”)… My theory is that Ben Solo had a younger sister and when he went bad they hid Rey to stop it from happening to her too.
This would make Kylo Ren and Rey equals. They are both the grandchildren of Darth Vader. Maybe the fact that one is good and one is bad is what’s meant by ‘balance to the force’.
Yeah had the same thought myself on my third viewing funny enough. The way han looks sort of guilty at that moment, although could be the guilt of an uncle an auntie who didn’t step in when the shit hit the fan.
Glasgow or Edinburgh?
Oh shit, too far for me to go, Liverpool?
Thanks for the offer but if I were to drop everything and travel to Liverpool to see a film (which I have already seen albeit in a different format) with a friend I have yet to meet. I would be very out of pocket and probably diced and deep fried by him indoors 😄
Ah well, you cant say I never offered. I wanted to see it in the Imax the first week but for me an the family we were looking at shelling out nearly £80!
Saying that I’ve nearly paid out that much with subsequent viewings.
On a side note I read somewhere that the Sheffield Imax has an actual 70mm print ie: not digital. Anyone seen it?
Glasgow or Edinburgh?
Oh shit, too far for me to go, Liverpool?
Really can’t find anyone wanting to go with me. I was joking about the bed linen… (if they were recently washed and wet, wet, wet I could pass it off as Marti Pillow)
I’ll go with you!
Wow. Just wow. Im gonna watch it tonight on the projector, cant wait.
Thanks again to all the team, and I’ll say it again, keep up the good work.
I do hope that guy knows this is a digitised version of a 35mm film and neg one isn’t distributing actual 35mm prints out or he’s going to be so dissapointed.
Yoda Is Your Father said:
When using CGI it’s best practise not to zoom it to fill the frame, but with Snoke JJ just puts it right in the frame to pull us out of the suspension of disbelief.
Unless I missed something, we never see Snoke. We just see a holographic projection Kylo is speaking with.
Goodpoint. He might look different in a photo-realistic environment.
Yeah, I’ve got a feeling he’s going to be tiny. And how Leia spoke of him he was probably or still part of the new republic. Maybe a bit of Palpatine miss direction/ cloak and dagger thing going on.
I presume Luke is going to fill us in on some of the details. I have a feeling were going to see flashbacks of a proper form or maybe a Vulcan mind meld type thing for Rey. If GL had made episode 7 back in the day we wouldnt need them but I think the audience of today will expect them.
I wont mind, I wanna see!
I’ve always seen troopers as canon fodder and that’s how I saw them portrayed. Massive in numbers but small in talent. It seams only the flight crew, fighter pilots and command crew have extensive training.
I’ve seen the movie twice up to now and still say its an excellent sequel to ROTJ.
And yes its got loads of WTF moments but so have the OT. Thats part of its charm, they are fantasy movies and should be viewed as such. You cant apply full logic to them or they would be very boring and not Star Wars. The film was well made and well executed, it really shows that the prequels were not. What a shame.
Need to read through the threads chaps, that was there original set-up, things have moved up a notch since then.
Great stuff Team. I especially love the brightness of the clip, I’m getting that seeing things I’ve never seen before feeling, the Ugnaught garbage disposal room has never been so bright!
Keep it up guys!
The lightsabre calling a force sensitive happened also in the first episode of Star Wars Rebels to Ezra, so looks like they were introducing this in the cartoon so the “kids” would get that this can happen.
Really enjoyed it.
Went on my own to a mostly deserted cinema Thursday morning.
Left my cynical head at the door and just watched the movie. Watched it in 3D which to me looked good, bit of ghosting but put that down to the cinema’s set up.
Great depth and depth separation. One massive out of the screen moment as star destroyer struck me in the face! Music and sound felt Star Warsy! (yes I love adding the letter Y).
After the fuck up of the prequels this felt like a Star Wars movie. The humour felt right, to agree with Laurence Kasdan, it had the “goofiness” of the originals (not the silliness of the prequels).
Yes the plot was was flawed and felt rehashy but arent they all?
Casting was great, Harrison ford was an aged Han Solo, Adam Driver stole the show.
I recognised little sound effects from the originals, the wipes felt quite authentic (these little things made me well up!). To see Han bite the big one hit me, I knew it was coming but the way it happened, for me was good.
Technically yes it looked modern but its going to, we live now, not back then. Even through the 3D glasses the colour timing felt right.
All in all an excellent addition to the Star Wars saga.
Its a good time to be a Star Wars nut!
Going again at the weekend with the family and really looking forward to it.
P.S. I was so choked up As the crawl began I forgot to read it! Ive seen the crawls so many times it just didnt register! Im such a big girls blouse!
I went to see Star Wars first time round. I don’t remember the movie watching experience,I was 4-5, I remember being carried home on my dads shoulders and discussing it. And I may have had the proggrame mag which I drew all over in pen.
You should know better than to post such things in this thread. The post in the memorabila section was enough. Don’t do it again.
Sorry silverwook. I’ve removed it. I blame the booze.
Would have been nice if he worked on another restoration.
If you live in the U.K.(nw) a mate of mine who owns a tattoo studio is doing a special price run on all ink related to Star Wars! His studio is called “Alternative Skin” its in Liverpool. So if your looking to get some Force related body art check out his Facebook page.
