Anyone else feel a "sage" feature could be handy?
Time

If you don’t know what a sage is, it is something that you mainly see on imageboards such as 4chan, 8kun, etc. It basically serves as a way to reply to the thread without it moving up the catalog. Now I am wondering, would it be handy if a forum like this would have such a feature? As someone who mainly lurks here, I very often see a thread I’d like to ask or say something in but usually decide it’s probably better not to necro an old thread. With a sage feature I could reply without it bothering everybody else.

Info Wanted: Is there any fan edit of ROTJ that is simply the theatrical cut but with Victory Celebration at the end?

Hal9000’s custom special edition workprint is pretty close to this. Other than a few FX enhancements here and there, the movie mostly plays as the theatrical until the end.

Well idk, the 90s special edition still has Jedi Rocks so I’m not very keen on watching that one as a substitute

It’s one of the only changes in the special editions that I like, I think it can just be a simple edit to the audio track. I tried doing it myself but I couldn’t isolate the voices in the celebration scene so I could only let the music play but with no voices on top which feels weird to watch. I think someone could do it with a 5.1 mix, those usually have their own track for characters talking.

You might as well just use the audio from the Special Edition scene itself (rather than just the music from the soundtrack).

Well, I tried doing that but the timing of the shots is slightly different in the special edition

Anyone else think Empire Strikes Back's Special Edition is actually better than the Theatrical Cut?
Time

Although I really hate the Special Editions for ANH and ROTJ, ESB’s Special Edition is different to me. It doesn’t really change much from the film other than a few things like Ian playing the Emperor and showing the wampa creature, both of which in my opinion actually improve the film. Only the “Bring my shuttle” line being changed really bothered me.
I especially liked that they opened up Sky City, an idea that actually came from Kirshner himself. Though the matte paintings of the Theatrical Cut hold a special place in my heart, the CGI rendition of the city is still acceptable and thankfully it’s the only time a practical effect was replaced, which is another thing I love: One thing that pissed me off about ANH’s Special Edition was taking practical effect shots and replacing them with CGI, especially because the CGI looks worse than the original shots (Even for the Death Star battle, but for some reason most people actually think the CGI version of that one looks better) but ESB’s Special Edition doesn’t do that and while it still adds some CGI shots: No practical effect was replaced, something I really appreciate.
