Help: Searching for Selutron's Superman II

I have no leads for you mate - though this thread may be of interest…

Has anyone tried to do what selutron was doing for superman 2 richard donner cut if so can you tell me who?
 

As well as this post by Earl on the subject - link - and a few follow-up posts in the thread on the subject too. They are from 2017 - and indicate that selutron stopped work on his Edit before it was finished. (Some example videos and WIP cuts intended for inclusion to the Edit can still be found on youtube here, apparently.)

The edit sound amazing and I have not watched a single episode of GoT. Could I possibly get a PM to the GoT movie edits (I, II & III)

Going on your post above… it is best that you provide proof that you own the official release for the relevant seasons of Game Of Thrones before asking for projects you seemingly do not own.

And give the Fan Edit / Preservation Forum Rules and FAQ another read too.

An <strong>Index &amp; Help Thread</strong> for <em><strong>The Expanded Universe &amp; General Star Wars Discussion</strong>...</em>
Time

Hiya Fated, the main reasons why the two respective sections are in the same forum category are…

  • We wanted to keep certain topics of conversation separate from each other; one forum dedicated for the OT, one for onscreen content outside of the OT, plus one for discussing aspects of both - yet also the wider GFFA as a whole.

  • Feedback from members on the subject of the forum re-organisation suggested they didn’t want too many new forum categories created to have to sift through. (So we whittled it down to an additional two new categories.)

  • We just weren’t sure just how many threads there would be for a ‘General Star Wars Discussion’ section after the old 5000+ thread forum was split into ‘Original Trilogy’, ‘Beyond the OT’ and ‘The EU’. (I’d guess at around 300 threads.)
     

If there is enough demand to separate them… this may change - though we don’t think it’ll happen anytime soon, mate.
 

If anyone has any suggestions or further questions (as well as requests to separate ‘The Expanded Universe’ & ‘General Star Wars Discussion’ sections) feel free to post them up in the site’s Feedback Forum - thank you.

👍

Guys, that link is nearly 16 years old - so it is not surprising it doesn’t no longer works.

I’m not sure if anyone can help you with these specific covers… but there is a link to some of the cover art which Jetrell Fo did (along with with cover art from other talented people on here which he also saved and kindly made available), in the An Index & Help Thread for Case Covers, Disc Labels, and Fan Art…

Good idea for thread, V.I.N.Cent. As you say, it’ll certainly be interesting to see if it features any rarely seen ‘bits and pieces’ from his film and tv projects.

And also how content on his preservation work for films… conflates with the lack of preservation for a certain Star Wars trilogy he was quite heavily involved with 😉

The Original Trilogy - a General Random Thoughts thread
Time

One of the many standout features across the whole Trilogy for me is James Earl Jones’ seminal delivery of dialogue for the character of Darth Vader. He added such power, authoritative wrath and wondrous menace… to the already striking visual aesthetic of both the mask and suit, as well as the colossal prowess and performance by Dave Prowse under the helmet.

All films of this nature need a strong and memorable villain… and yet James Earl Jones’ voice-work for Vader lifted the character to another level of fear-inducing badassery; which is probably not an easy thing to achieve in movies where the ‘bad guys’ usually tend to be played as stereotypical caricatures or are somewhat ‘hammed up’ by the actors playing them.

 

A great little article on JEJ and voicing Vader - including his thoughts on ESB’s director on the delivery of his lines…

James Earl Jones Didn’t Believe Darth Vader Was Luke’s Father

“I said to myself, ‘He’s lying. I wonder how they are going to play that lie out?’” the actor says.

and an article on him meeting Carrie Fisher for the first time in 2014 - for filming an episode of ‘The Big Bang Theory’:-

Star Wars’ James Earl Jones And Carrie Fisher Only Recently Met For The First Time’:-

Also, a true story… Harrison Ford and James Earl Jones once teamed up with each other to defeat the Nazis - impressive, most impressive…
