I’m laughing!

The subtle censorship I don’t really care about, the fact that others were left in makes me think it wasn’t censorship but rather Lucas thinking they reacted to late or that it looked fake rather then him thinking seeing people get shot is bad

No, it’s censorship. The edits are the only times we see unmasked humans being shot by our heroes & reacting in pain & “violent” death. The rest of the time it’s not in close-up, or it’s troops in masks.

As for the thread topic, I’m with Despecialized. A restored OT is the mission statement of this site & why I originally arrived a decade ago. I want the film as it was. A beautiful time capsule of state-of-the-art film making in 1977.
When I want an SE, I’ve got Revisited.
Official SW product has been outclassed by the fans in every way.

Temple of Doom is great

It would easily be my favorite if they’d bothered to write a decent female role instead of the annoying embarrassment we have… That character totally ruins the entire film.
The captured children should have changed her tone. When she gets involved in that, she should have gotten over herself, realized she was part of something bigger & started something resembling a character arc. But, nope. Just more “AAAAH!” “EEW!” “INDEEEEE!” ugh.

I’ll be forever upset that they decided to make Last Crusade and Crystal Skull into Raiders clones instead of letting each movie be wholly unique

For sure. it’s a shame. It should be a series I love.

Would it not be amazing if we got a Darth Vader movie directed by Christopher Nolan?

You just never know.

I do. I actively do not want to know more about that character or those events. The mystery is what’s intriguing.
There’s no real-life history or untold stories there anyway & I have no interest in what someone makes up for that.

Will the Imperial March be retained for the HD version? It’s one of my favorite changes of ANH:R.

I don’t know what other music you could even use for the Death Star reveal. Besides, isn’t the Imperial March used in Rogue One anyway?

I know that R1 used a new version of the original Death Star reveal cue, I could use more of that in ANHR.

I’d be all for that.

Certainly a valid concern.

It’s a lame concern. This is the biggest franchise on planet Earth. There’s no way to make a new StarWars anything without a potion of the fanbase hating it. Just make the movie you wanna make.
Anyway, I’d have zero interest in a Darth Vader movie no matter who was involved.
