    Enough. If you cannot discuss the films or even the original topic this thread is going under. Heero, stop dragging the conversation off topic. Same for you, Obi-Rob. If I have to post this up again both of you are taking a walk.-Darth Boba

    Nice job for a "million dollar" restoration.

    And how about this?

    Very nice job, especially the saber and the skin color.

    Things like that dont fool me. Sorry. [face_tee_hee][face_talk_hand]I-)

    You can put any image of any movie under a ridiculous magnifying glass with a smug, perfectionist, my-taste-knows-best attitude and make a case that which ever screen posted looks "wrong".

    You just pulled the oldest trick in the book. Posted two slightly different images of SW next to each other and demonized the official, smoothed out one that George Lucas prefers. How original.

    I think the OOT images look dated and fake compared to the official images. The official images match the rest of the saga much more.

    I like the film how lucas likes it. Finished.

    And FYI the 1997 cleaning and restoration process done on Episodes 4,5 and 6 was to this day one of the most meticulous restoration processes ever preformed on a film. The original negative was so aged and damaged so badly. The cleaning up they did saved the films. The Saga looks awesome in full 1080p HD on cable and blu-ray.

    This thread makes babies Luke & Leia cry

    Me too, now that the high res screen grabs have made their way in. I don't suppose anyone has any insight into the actual future of the Star Wars franchise, or what GL himself might have in mind for the little hobby films he's wanted to play with for decades?

    David Lynch had some fun for a few years shooting little shorts on DV & making animations for his website, a lot of which were quite good - wouldn't it be great if George Lucas did the same thing?

    Okay. I think we're done here discussing Lucas' retirement. When something new pops up, we can create a new thread.

    Until then, this thread out.
