Despite disbanding months ago, the band got its act together for one final gig.
They had promised to deliver a blu-ray version of their Silver Screen Edition, based on an original pre-Special Edition 35mm print, but in light of the media circus, eccentric leadership, inter-group squabbles and subsequent break-up; few expected them to actually deliver. However, deliver they did! And this is not just a conversion of the existing "Version 1.0" video into a bluray compatible format. This new and I'm told, final, version of their Silver Screen Edition includes more cleanup, new audio tracks, subtitles, beautiful interactive menus, seamless branching, sharper picture, higher bitrates, and better colors. This is a major upgrade to an already stunning project.
Here are a few snapshots to whet your appetite:
These orange marks are gone
Much more natural looking skin tones
Less light smearing
Homemade reel change markers are gone
Looking sharp, 3P0!
Still no medal for Chewie...
Those of you used to the blu-ray, may still struggle with all the film grain; and the colors, while much improved in most scenes (and probably better than the official blu-ray in all scenes), could still use a little tweaking, but overall the final result is nothing short of awesome.
