Your choice of course. I find suspicious that people get put off by the name of the channel, honestly its clear to me that any review pointing put flaws and problems on the sequel trilogy wpuld get dismissed by random reasons.

Screen Rant for example is one of most thoughtful and chilled movie critiques on YouTube… But it has “rant” in the name so im going to dismiss it.

No, not the name of the channel - the title of the video and two of it’s descriptions therein. As I said before, I’ve seen enough of those similar type of ‘monetised hate’ videos - after a while they seem pretty much the same - and also other reasons given previously too.

I’m not much of a fan of ScreenRant either - but not because it has rant in it’s title though.

The unbridled rage take on the movie is here, and it’s awesome: https://youtu.be/0528-TlRODI

A 2 hour long youtube video from ‘MauLer’ on bashing TROS? Titled ‘TROS: An Unbridled Rage’?

No thanks - personally I’d rather watch something with balance to their videos, something without a pre-conceived agenda - and not 2 hours of a ‘video ranting about a crappy movie’ - or ‘Disney’s failure is now complete’.

Though fair play to those that do.
 

Its a very fair, balanced review though. That said, i understand how people who loved the movie cant take well constructed criticism, as seen with TLJ.

Fyi, its not a rant or enraged review despite the name of the channel.

You assume that only those who ‘loved the movie can’t take well constructed criticism, as seen with TLJ’? I don’t know - I don’t love the movie… you’d have to ask someone who does.

Seems many people who didn’t like TLJ or TROS or X, Y & Z also don’t like those type of videos - it is not a mutual thing.
 

The title of the video is ‘TROS: An Unbridled Rage’.

‘video ranting about a crappy movie’ is taken from from the video’s own description. As is ‘Disney’s failure is now complete’ from another part of the description.
 

A ‘very fair, balanced review’ and ‘constructive criticism’? Doesn’t seem like it - and I’ve no wish spending two hours finding out. It’s also not much of an endorsement from someone who states ‘people who loved the movie cant take well constructed criticism, as seen with TLJ’ - a bit narrow minded, that.
 

I’ve seen enough of the ‘monetised hate’ type of videos out there already, thanks.

Like I said, fair play to those that enjoy those type of videos - it’s not for me.

My personal edit of A New Hope (with SC38 Reimagined)
Time

FreezingTNT2 said:

While Scene 38 Reimagined was a standalone project made just for fun, it does not fit in with the dated look of A New Hope. If you want to put it into an edit of A New Hope, then edit all the VFX, models, practical effects, and matte paintings in the movie to look realistic and in-line with the sequel trilogy and Rogue One.

Buzz Lightyear has already explained what his Edit is about - he doesn’t have to do anything you want him to do, or that you think he should do.

 

Buzz, congratulations on finishing your Edit - it has been added to the An Index Thread for Star Wars Fan Edits and Other Projects…

Changes to the Disney+ 2019 SE of the Original Trilogy

doubleofive has written three quality and in-depth articles on the topic for The Digital Bits website, titled:-

A Visual Guide to Changes, Fixes & Tweaks in the Disney 4K Version’ - for each of the three Original Trilogy films…

Star Wars

Empire Strikes Back

Return Of The Jedi will no doubt be appearing on The Digital Bits website soon 😃

 

doubleofive’s exhaustive and comprehensive work cataloging the changes made to the Original Trilogy films (including the 2019 SE Disney+ version) can also be found at the following…

Star Wars Visual Comparisons twitter page

Star Wars Visual Comparisons website

Star Wars Visual Comparisons blog

 

The pinned Complete Comparison of Special Edition Visual Changes thread in the Theatrical Cuts vs. Subsequent Releases section of the site is pretty much the default discussion thread on the overall subject.

Within the first post of the linked thread above is a list of many other sources of information which also cover the numerous and continuing alterations made to the Original Trilogy films over the years - and the differing released versions - including content on the changes made for the 2019 SE Disney+ version.
 

It also features OT•com member 13las’s insightful and informative YouTube videos on the changes made to the OT over time:-

Star Wars
Empire Strikes Back
Return Of The Jedi
The Prequels
• and also for the 2019 SE Disney+ version too.

 

Yet, yes - of course… if anyone spots any further changes not already found or noticed for the 2019 SE Disney+ version, please mention them in here…

How Star Wars Star Joonas Suotamo Crafted Chewbacca’s Most Emotional Scene’:-

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/star-wars-new-details-chewies-force-awakens-snub-revealed-by-joonas-suotamo-1267225
 

^ An intriguing interview with Joonas, covering many topics on his time on Star Wars, and also the disclosure that…

'At the end of 2015’s The Force Awakens, fans were incensed when J.J. Abrams had Leia bypass Chewbacca in order to hug Rey (Daisy Ridley) after the loss of her newfound father figure, Han Solo. Such a snub echoed a similar moment in 1977’s A New Hope when Leia rewarded Luke and Han with Medals of Bravery but not Chewie. However, Suotamo reveals that The Force Awakens shot and cut a consolation scene involving Chewie and his grief over Han.

“For The Force Awakens, we actually shot a special scene — a consolation scene for Chewie — which didn’t make it into the finished film or the DVD. The thought process behind it was a little bit different than what ended up being in the film…”’

What's everybody's favorite Original Trilogy movie - Star Wars, Empire, or Jedi?

Empire Is mine jtlyk

It may be worth stating your reasoning as to why a particular film is your favourite over the other two Original Trilogy releases?
 

Please don’t abbreviate or use ‘txt spk’ too much on the site mate - not everyone’s first language is English, or up on such terms as ‘jtlyk’, and some of us here are very old! Thank you 😃

“Sheev” is Palpatine’s first name. That detail was one of Lucas’ last contributions to the lore, IIRC.

I just find weird that we call him palpatine at all. He is darth sidious.

It’s not wise to call him Darth Sidious on this forum.

Why? This site is called originaltrilogy.com, not prequelhaters.com, or sequelhaters.com. As for any forum, there will be those, that like the PT, and/or ST, and those that don’t, but let’s not even begin to push the idea, that some opinions on the films are more valid than others, or that we should censor ourselves to pacify some vocal hard line segment of the membership on this forum.

I read it as more a joke / humour - and was awaiting a follow up post ‘He IS the Senate’ etc

(or maybe now a follow-up of ‘He is ALL of the Senate’)

Sheev Maclunkey Palpatine - it was always meant to be his full name… and George will go back and change past documentation to prove it (once again) 😉

'The SJW media used the fake victimhood of Kelly Marie Tran to shame Star Wars fans for criticizing TLJ.

The only proof of the “months of online harassment” were replies to her birthday post by the official Star Wars Instagram.

Kelly’s Insta was always full of fangirl type stuff’
 

Yep, reading through that twitter account for just a few minutes… I’d happily take a stand against toxic fandom such as that victim-blaming and racism-denier shite. You too, Dre?

…if you’re trying to download an HD project, you need to own the official Blu-Ray first.

Are you sure about that? Stuff like the schorman HDTV preservations are overall closer to the DVDs than the Blu-rays. Perhaps the Blu-ray’s are “close enough” for the OT, but certainly not Ep 1 and probably not Ep 2 and 3.

Ash is indeed correct mate…

From the Notes on Piracy - Please Read thread:-

Moth3r said:

If a project is sourced from an HDTV broadcast, and that movie has subsequently been made available for purchase on Blu-ray Disc, you are expected to own the BD before obtaining the fan project.
