The Keep (1983) - 35mm Preservation Scan Opportunity (a WIP)
Time

just watched the grindhouse. It certainly works on large screen better than the so called hdtv broadcast. It’s definitely darker in some scenes, which isn’t necessarily a problem as it enhances the errieness of the movie in places, although some scenes are more awkward. I’ll probably play around with it in kdenlive for some adjustment.

Small details that took you <em><strong>FOREVER</strong></em> to notice in the <em>Star Wars</em> films
Time

I only recently realized how much ham radio influenced the audio, only after the wife said my swan 500c makes people sound like star wars, did I see the connection in the battle of yavin. much of the radio dialog sounds distinctly like single sideband, and the probe droid sounds a lot like listening to someone “off frequency”.

do not go to forums.thestarwarstrilogy.com and expect to find links to the movies…i just registered and it was a complete waste of time.
jumped through all the hoops and there wasn’t anything worthwhile…so I spent a few minutes to tell others on this forum not to bother, hopefully save your time.

forums.thestarwarstrilogy.com = waste of time.

You didn’t provide links to the movies either; ergo you’re a waste of time too!

I found them by going to the usual “guess where” places for these things. duh.

Screening of the Original Version of STAR WARS July at Stockton, CA
Time

okay did some checking, looking at criterion usa, it seems they specialize in film licensing for non theater screenings, like universities and the whatnot, and the theater in question seems to be largely volunteer based. I’m guessing its just easier than dealing directly with fox, or buena vista, or the other big distrubutors. my best guess.

We don’t know the bigger picture on this though. I doubt George was even texted on this one.

And I seriously doubt Criterion would touch the SE unless they could include the original version as well. If any company respects film fans, it’s them.

I think in this case they’re talking about Criterion Pictures USA, which as I understand it is in no way connected with the Criterion Collection, just for clarification.
