I really enjoyed The Mandalorian. 

I definitely enjoyed the "Star Wars Canon" episodes more than the more Star Trek-style standalone episodes, and every once in a while the effects looked like a TV show and not a movie.

Bring on more Star Wars content Disney+
agreed on all.
was pretty fun lil series.

My wife's Tattoo artist, who is also her sisters boyfriend, Clint, came up with Boba Fetus to out-cute 'Baby Yoda'.

I don't know how to post his video here, but he got the idea after doing a Baby Yoda tattoo the other day. It's up on his Instagram.

(Side note, the constellation surrounded by fern leaves and flowers tattoo is my wife's new one)

Just watched the Project 4k77 release of the original Star Wars, as it originally looked.
It's amazing.

Here's info on this, if you're curious:
https://www.thestarwarstrilogy.com/project-4k77/

And the tl;dr outtake:

Is this an upscale?

No, 97% of project 4K77 is from a single, original 1977 35mm Technicolor release print, scanned at full 4K, cleaned at 4K, and rendered at 4K.

Who did this?

Team Negative 1 (TN1) Ė the same crew who brought you The Silver Screen Edition (SSE) three years ago. TN1 are not professional film restoration experts, they are just Star Wars fans, like you.

Why do this?

You mean apart from the fact that there hasnít been a new transfer of the original film since 1993 (the 2006 Bonus DVDs used the 1993 laserdisc master tapes) and George Lucas pretty much denies this version ever existed? This is the version I grew up watching, over and over again, and Iím afraid technology has moved on to the point where the old VHS, betamax, CED, laserdisc and 2006 Bonus DVD just donít look good enough to watch on modern HDTV and 4K UHD Televisions / Home theater projectors. I wanted to show the film to my kids, and I wanted them to see the original version that I enjoyed at their age Ė not the one with the already dated looking CGI, over saturated colors and a strong magenta tint.

downloading - this is way better than the de-specialized editions, which i've been happiest with so far.

Yes. Through a circuitous route, I've acquired a blu-ray of it (and of Jedi (they're still working on Empire)), and it's just beautiful.
Actually puts one back in the '70s watching it, which is great. It's such a '70s movie, with such great '70s special effects, while at the same time being so different from anything else of its era.

The special editions are an incomprehensible muddle in comparison, especially in terms of look and feel.

Just saw that they're running Empire in theaters on 9/25.
Guess they haven't heard about the deadly virus??

I keep redownloading this in higher and higher quality.  Just like the rest of May '77!

Is the quality really better though?

The comparisons to Iíve seen say/show that itís more authentic to the 70s theatrical print, but not necessarily higher quality than the Despecialized Edition.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

It might be a matter of taste. The 4k77 is taken almost completely from a single print, with the point of making it resemble as closely as possible the theatrical presentation. So there's film grain and softness, just like with film, as well as differences in color timing. Whereas the despecialized is taken from many sources with the goal of creating something as close as possible to what a home release would look like.

I really liked the look and feel of the 4k77.

Seems as though word on Jedi is that the new 4k83 version beats the despecialized hands down. Going to check that one out soon.

Last night I watched the Project D+80 Empire. Very nice. Though not as beautiful as the 4k77 Star Wars. But a 4k Empire is on the horizon...
