Adventures of Luke Skywalker LP
Time

I recently acquired the empire strikes back adventures of luke skywalker, I don’t have a record player so I have no way to play it at the moment. I couldn’t find a modern release. Are there any preservations or is this something I need to look into taking care of myself. As I understand it’s essentially the the same story of the movies edited down to fit on an LP record with the cast doing the voices. Did they do the other two movies? all that I found on ebay is the empire strikes back. I hope somebody knows more about this than I do.

this bluray may be of interest, although it’s obviously a bootleg

This week my father and I saw Soylent Green on Blu-ray, and I was baffled by the review it was given on the blu-ray.com website about the video quality. The reviewer gave it a 3/5 rating and criticized the gritty look of the movie, but personally I thought the movie looked gorgeous and had the exact look a low-budget movie from the early 1970s is supposed to have.

sounds like the review for the animated lord of the rings, the reviewer complained that “it hadn’t gotten the vibrant touch up of disney blurays, and was grainy like a 70’s movie.”

Huh??? It was made in the 70’s, basically he complained that it was too close to how it looked originally.

Hey hey - come on guys - don’t insult…I’m trying my best will zero experience. Being told that I would work it out if I want it bad enough or that I remind them of someone’s mother isn’t nice.

Yesterday I spent a few hours just trying to get the free rapid download thing - I couldn’t work out how to get it from the dropbox account to my laptop and in the end tried to find it online and was met with a barrage of Norton warnings about threats prevented and being directed to german websites with green “download” buttons that were going to make me download “other software” I didn’t want.

It’s been quite stressful this end - and I’m scared of getting a virus on the laptop or doing something to my computer I can’t undo.

I wouldn’t worry too much about viruses back when I actually used windows, antivirus software will flare bogus warnings sometimes, your probably better of going the torrent route, transmission qt is probably the simplest one to use.

intersteller really needs a fan audio touch up or something, I tried to watch it at a friends house, and the dialog was inaudible, and the sound effects were enough to require earplugs!

Maybe your friend needs to friend rebalance his sound system.

yeah, from what i remember Interstellar’s sound mix is superb.

he didn’t have a sound system at the time, just an old crt.

I don’t know a lot about downmixing. But I suspect that a stereo CRT could make a DTS surround track sound like shit.

plausible, ill have to rent it sometime and see.
