I can understand this guys point. I have had several of the things I was a fan of growing up pretty much taken away from me and warped in hideous ways to make it appeal to others.

If one can call it appealing. At least... will it be appealing on the long run like the OT was?

I am sure Disney don't care. They are making their money back plus several billion more.

Or are you one of those fans who hates Star Wars and the changes but will continue to talk about and buy related items?
Star Wars video games are a prime example.

I don't care if you hate the mythos, game like Battlefront, Jedi Outcast, Dark Forces, or KOTOR especially, are just great games.

All trash compared to Tie Fighter.

The Dos version with Imuse, not that Windows hatchet job.

I can recommend the Despecialized Editions.

Done from different sources.

The Silver Screen Edition looks promising, it's a cleanup from the negatives (Didn't Lucas claim they were all destroyed?)

Found a comparison:

SS on the left.

My god, these are way too much trouble to get.

Refuse to use torrents for anything, Mega links are all too big and have download caps, and Reddt links are all non clearly marked or have problems.

Nobody knows how to do a proper upload anymore. Either that, or everyones using bait and switch tactics to trick people into clicking/upgrading an account.

Finally, finally managed to see episode iv.

Worth the wait. The spliced in footage is visably of a lesser quality then the blu-ray stuff, but Harmy does a good job of blending it in as well he can. I understand the 2.7 version used Silver Screen Edition title crawlers and some other things.

I think I'll try and see the SSE next. I understand it took them over three years clean and touch up the 35mm film they aquired.

Although I've always been more of a casual fan anyway, and it was only more recently with the ubiquity of commercialized Star Wars shit that I've become disgusted by the whole spectacle. That and Force Awakens rehashed the damn Death Star to a nauseating degree and Rogue One was boring fan service...

Honestly I have never seen the appeal... I'd take Jaws over a New Hope any day.

It doesn't have "A new hope" on it, so we're talking as old school a cut as you can get.

I think I prefer the SSE edition to Harmy's. The grain and little flaws makes it feel more authentic, like how they saw it back in the theater. And seeing those low res sources in the middle of blu-ray scenes somewhat broke the immersion for me.

Where could they have gotten the 35 mm cut, though? Someone at Fox who knew it would never happen officially? Someone who worked on the original project year ago, and happened to have a cut sitting around collecting dust?

So imo Silver Screen Edition > Harmy edition.

It's has a more consistent look, and there's something more legitimate about a 35 milimeter restoration then a splicing together of sources that includes Blue Rays.

One method seems more like stealing, while the other simply restores a neglected original. Even if the result seems the same, it's a difference between the mission of M.A.M.E and merely ripping a modern game..
