For some reason, the angle of Luke's face within the helmet I guess, I always thought this was a composite shot

Caved and ordered those Rinzler books last week. the Empire book showed up the other day but was obviously used and in shitty shape, so Bezos is sending me a new version. They seem pretty cool and so up my alley.

I was thinking to watch the OG Trilogy with my son. Does anyone have a recommendation on a good "despecialized but restored" version, and where to get it? I have seen a number of these floating around but kind of lost/too lazy to figure out what the differences are. I just don't want CGI jabba tail getting stepped on.
Combarieu declares that the songs of birds are not "musical" either, because they are "very difficult to take down in notation." See his Music-Its Laws and Evolution, 155. Will some divine power please create a "Musical" bird to sing the Air for G String in exact Equal Temperament for M. Combarieu?

I have Episode IV "Silver Screen Edition" which is what was shown in theatres '77, as well as "1980 ESB" BluRay rip. I think that may be the theatrical version as well, idk.

and yeah go with harmy's. i think the versions i have are 2.7 for SW, and 2.5 for ROTJ, but i don't know which ESB i have

IIRC:

- The Harmy's edits were Blu-ray rips that drew from other sources (HD scans of fan-owned positives, upscaled frames from old laserdiscs, etc.) to replace any frame that had been altered from the original cuts. I think there was some color work done, but basically the color timing looks more like the official HD / 4K editions than the theatrical versions.
- The Silver Screen Edition was a straight HD scan, warts and all, of a fan-owned 35mm positive in good condition.
- The 4K77 was a 4K rescan from the guys who did the Silver Screen Edition, which integrated a handful of frames from other reels and the Blu-ray, with maybe a bit more hands-on work with the color timing. They put out both a raw version and one that had some digital noise reduction processing.

Also, I THINK the Harmy's edits were all 720, and the Silver Screen Edition was 1080. But I may be wrong about that.

my son "enjoys" star wars but doesnt have the patience for more than like 3 scenes yet, at age 5.

the phantom menace is probably the best paced for him. maybe episode 7 but i hate that movie.

i was like "oh i wonder if this is star war" and then yeah, and then legit made a tiny gasp at the reveal

i wonder how they handle controls with a controller? i dont usually prefer M&K but seems like there's a lot of actions for a gamepad? maybe a KH-style thing where you hold a button to bring up a menu of magic then another button does the thing?

Controller is the only way to play KOTOR imo.

Really hope this leads to a remake of 2 the way it was intended.

one of the writers for the remake is big on queer and female representation in games thru their work. i think we're gonna see a drastically different game than the original, which i am very happy about it, and i am also looking forward to tasting the sweet salt of raging KOTOR and Star Wars fanboys as more details get revealed

so weird cause it seems like the original star war was a total mess before she did an edit, but that's a pretty weak complaint against the new ones

Yeah, I've read accounts where she's been more than half responsible for the relative concision of Star Wars and Empire, and then when they divorced, it led to decisions such as replacing Wookies with Ewoks.

i don't terribly mind the ewoks thing tbh, though maybe since i just grew up with them as a fact of the movie, the "what could have been" wasn't really ever an issue for me.

Very annoying that the MRAs are gonna use “a female said the female sucks so we’re not misogynists!” when her point doesn’t apply since we do know how she got the powers. The answer sucks, but it’s not a mystery sadly.

Man imo it's such a bummer that TRoS was so not my thing. I wouldn't even mind it as much if the actual like, plot/retcons weren't so sucky. just bums me out cause it was a real slam dunk with those characters, especially Rey and Kylo, and I wish they'd been able to carry things on their own without having to lean so hard into the legacy actors (even though i LOVE the luke stuff in TFA and TLJ), and retcon connections to emperor, etc
