OT bootleg DVD reviews
Time
I have the anamorphic DVD set - got it from digitalfreaknyc, who is good enough to ship worldwide - and took only 3 days from my order to reach me here in the UK from the USA - all for the cost of 4 blank disks and postage & packing.

Originally I was going to go with the TR47 set, though through reading the Bootleg DVDs thread in the General Section I was less than impressed with his actions in there. Obviously most of us will be glad that he has competition from others selling their sets too - otherwise we'd have been paying a substantial amount of more money. I would not have been happy to buy a set from this guy and find out the next day that he'd cut his prices by around a half (perhaps even more) as there is now a bit of competition....

Those people offering DVD sets for free (postage & packing) and other similar amounts of $/£ are to be applauded.

A BIG thanks to all those who've created and or posted DVD covers, disc art and inserts here too - they've come in most handy

A seemingly great idea that you technically minded ppl are doing - the 4:4:4 transfer etc, tho I have question:-

Just how much better in picture and sound quality will this version be - say compared to DigitalFreakNYC or TR47's versions? Will the average Joe (me) be able to easily tell the difference in quality? (if this version will be 'available' to people here)...

Great inserts there DonnieDarko - very much appreciated - I don't want to come across as a tosser, tho I did notice a few errors in the text:-

Ep4 - 20. 'Obi Wan's Home' isn't in capital letters
Ep4 - 61. 'What gooo's a...' (good?)

Ep5 - 16. 'Be careful. You to' (too?)
Ep5 - 30. 'I'm sure it's perfectly safe for driods' (droids?)
Ep5 - 34. 'Well ofcourse I'll... (of course?)
Ep5 - 35. 'My hands are dirty to' (too?)
Ep5 - 48. 'Im' tryin to reach...' (trying or tryin'?)
Ep5 - 61. 'I had no choice. I'm tryin to help' (trying or tryin'?)

Ep6 - 12. 'Leia free's Han from...' (frees?)

I received my DVDs through the post today (didn't realise it was so quick to post stuff from the USA to the UK) - was really impressed with the picture and sound quality of all the 3 films and the bonus disc has some great intriguing pieces on it too.

Some fantastic work and many thanks to DigitalFreakNYC - unlike many others I havn't paid through the nose like on ebay and other similar offers - great stuff that a fellow SW fan has made a concious effort NOT to profit at the expense of other fans.

Well worth getting.

George Lucas' explanation why the OT is obsolete to him

Work in progress, rough-cuts, unfinished work etc and other 'reasons' for the changes over the years...

Why didn't he say at the time (and every time) this version is not the finished one - there's gonna be another (and another)and you lot are going to have to pay for it if you want it?

I wouldn't have bought a picture off an artist if he was later going to tell me it's not finished, he's going to come around in a couple of years time and re-do it a bit - and charge me for it.
