The Prequel Radical Redux Ideas Thread
Time

After seeing Ender (Anakin Starkiller) make pretty decent use of Ebsynth to recolour walls in footage he shot, I decided to have a go at recolouring Obi-Wan’s robes in some shots from RotS:

Those are after he meets the gang tho. We don’t see anything of Anakin before meeting the gang. With Luke, you know his story before meeting Obiwan.

In ANH we see the world up until that point through the eyes of R2 and 3PO. We learn who Luke is through them.

In TPM we see the world up until the Tattooine arc exclusively through the eyes of Qui-Gon and co.

The only difference is the amount of time it takes for us to meet Anakin - perhaps that’s what you’re pointing out. If Obi-Wan were the POV in the first act of ANH, then maybe it would be comparable. If Anakin were the most interesting character in the film with a more prominent role, then having him show up so late would be an issue.

All my opinion, obviously.

The Australian Thread
Time

Magpies suck, spiders scare me, 90% of the country is too hot 90% of the time. I first saw kangaroos at a school camp when I was thirteen. The next time was at a caravan park where one got within five yards of me - a rather scary experience.

I oscillate between thinking that the stereotypes of Australia and the seemingly alien perception of the place by Americans and others is entirely bullshit and thinking that Australia really is an insane place. I suspect neither is really true/

Daenerys’ Arrival at Dragonstone rescored with Elliot Goldenthal’s phenomenal “Titus Victorious”:

Also recoloured, rescored, and resounded! Also sharpened and with noise added - yes I have a crutch, leave me alone.

Hmmmm. Not sure what qualifies as NSFW. I did try to make it pretty pg as per cinema standards. No nudity, thrusting, etc. Also can try to make it more suggestive.

I once got warned by a mod for posting a gif of Patrick Bateman thrusting during a sex scene - the shot only showing Chris Bale’s face and upper torso, Admittedly it was off-topic - I assume the main offence - but I did also get asked to keep it SFW.

Was just unsure about things. Trying to err on the side of caution.

I feel like this should be a separate thread.

Why? Does it not fall under “Radical Redux Ideas”? haha Or just too controversial on its own? Theres no nudity

As much as the idea is “Radical!” and it does intrigue me, I’m not sure about the NSFW nature of it and how distinctly NSFW it is in comparison with the rest of the thread. I don’t know, I suppose that’s up to the mods.

Good stuff, though!

Thanks.
I will confess that I thought so too. My reasoning for the colour was because of the fact the scene is meant to be glum and on a rainy day. The noise is - I assume - worse than intended due to google drive compression.
Alas, there will be tweaking if I keep working on it.

PS. I have indeed noticed that all my edits are too damned dark and grainy. That I should work on.

As the ending celebration of TRoS fades to black, one person’s head explodes with barely any time to register what’s happening because it already started fading out.

You’ve mentioned exploding heads on this thread before. Did that happen in one of the special editions and I just forgot about it?

Nope, he just likes exploding heads.

Hal, buddy, if we don’t get a “Custom Extra-Special-Exploding-Head Edition” from you I’m going to be really disappointed.
