And Doc Hollywood to Cars?

Oh yeah, that one too. Silly as this sounds, I never really got into Cars because it’s the one movie I couldn’t wrap my head around. I can understand talking toys, talking insects or monsters living in another dimension who needs kids’ screams to sustain themselves. I get a lot of eye rolls over this, but I like when animated movies have some semblance of reality woven into the world they're creating. The premise behind those other films is that they live in our world in a way people don’t see. The toys flop to the floor and stay still when humans are around. The insects try to stay away from humans as much as possible (there’s that one bug on the street begging with a sign that reads “A kid pulled my wings”). But the cars? The girl car laments how roads are no longer built correctly, just cutting through things. So the humans are building the roads? But how do the living cars exist in that same world?

I like Cars, but if tou really think about that world there are some truly disturbing implications.

Film Theory on YouTube has a video that offers an explanation for living cars.

It's fun, if nothing else. He does a bunch of videos where he gives crazy, scientifically backed theories on games and movies.

The only thing that blows my mind more than that Cars theory is the one that says the Flintstones is actually post-apocalyptic.

Instead of a remake, how about something like this: https://youtu.be/to2SMng4u1k

The All-New Special, Really Special Edition

The actual sabre fighting is cool, but the audio over dubs are awful. No need for the ROTS audio to play just before he kills ObiWan.. We all already know the significance

And all the lens flares. No it's super cheesy, but it's impressive in concept.

With someone who has actual taste and sense behind it, there could be a really cool fan-version of the OT made.

Yeah, this minus the bad editing (it took the Stormtroopers a minute to jog ten feet) and over the top bits, plus quality compositing would be cool.

I'm probably alone in thinking that the original is much better for the story and more meaningful.

You're not alone, but I'm not that bothered about what happens to the OT (including the inevitable completely overhauled super-duper-extra-special edition) any more because I think enough people have put enough effort in to preserving the 77/80/83 theatrical releases.

 

Compositing, but also look up match moving too (the wiki article on it isn't great)

An FX process wherein disparate types of shots or elements (like Alec Guinness's face, stunt actors on a green screen, and CG sets) are put together.

...as opposed to straight up full CG animation.

Most movies these days have tons of compositing, even straight non-genre films.

Yeah, I'm anxiously awaiting the ESB 4K project. But with Lucas gone, I don't think we'll see any more tinkering.

I had given up hope we will ever see a 4k original theatrical release of the OT, that has just been cleaned up/restored for viewing at 4k.  I hope there is truth to that!

There is a really great fan version available. The have ANH and ROTJ, but ESB has been a little more difficult.

Oh yeah there are some good fan edits, like adywan.  But I would like an official version.

Maybe now that Disney finally owns the rights, we may get it. But, really, I don't think that the official version would be any better, other than being on a disc. They actually tracked down film from the theatrical version and scanned it frame by frame. It's not a hodgepodge edit.

Well I agree some of those fan edits are darn good. An official version would be hard pressed to beat it for sure.  But maybe its some warped brand loyalty or something, but some of the "magic" of the movie is lost for me, if it is not an official version from LFL.

I thought it sounded like something like that, thanks!

That is how I imagine Vader would fight, and that is extremely well done, but I still prefer the original.
