I can’t see that statement as anything but inflammatory and conjecture as to what the fanbase is or is not made up of , see the OP and kindly stop , or exit the thread .

You wanna tell me to leave the thread? I’ll be rude right back

I dislike TLJ but I don’t hate it.
I DO hate it when publications use the comments received by anonymous trolls as
An excuse to claim the fandom has a “white male nerd problem”
Trolls or legit unwarranted and hateful comments do not justify racism and sexism against anyone. Especially a group that the Star Wars fanbase is predominantly made up of.

I would actually rather Gareth Edwards oversee a release! But i think he is out really, pushed out. But at least on the same page and normal response from him.

I’ve been VERY satisfied with the Star Wars Blu-Rays Disney have been putting out. In terms of picture and sound quality, they’ve been excellent thus far.

The Phantom Menace was shot on 35MM so that can be true 4K, however the other two prequels were shot digitally and not even at 1080p

So by trying to appear technologically innovative Lucas shot AotC and RotS on formats that can’t meet today’s high resolution standards, but the first one from 1977 can? That’s hilarious.

AotC and RotS are the worst two IMO anyway.

Well, back in 1977, nobody knew you could source 4K resolution footage out of 35MM film stock.

I know this is not necessarily about 4K resto on Star Wars, but it may be very telling nonetheless; The Last Jedi is being released in 4K steelbook by Best Buy. I don’t know what the international release will consist of, but here is the purchase link for info:

4K Best Buy link

Well I knew about this since the Pre-Order went live on Zavvi about two or so weeks ago

Where is 4K77 ?!

Behind 4K THX 1138.

I want a 4K version of THX but it’ll probably be the 2004 Director’s Cut.
Maybe I should trash pick for a 35MM print of it

That’s what I’m saying; someone should try to salvage THX 1138 while it’s still possible.

I mean, someone scanned a 16MM black and white print of it, of all prints.
