Star Wars 4K77 - Wow

I've known about this for a while but only just got around to downloading it (because it's over 50GB!) In case you haven't heard of it, it's a scan of an original Star Wars 35mm reel at 4K resolution. Obviously this means no shit Special Edition "features." The level of detail is insane, even compared to the Despecialized versions I've been watching for the last 5 years, this looks incredible. This camera phone picture won't do it justice, but gives you an idea of the detail. The only slight problem is you can see how home-made everything looks :lol:

If you want to find out more head here:

For obvious reasons there is no direct download but you can find it easily enough on Google (just search for 4K77.) They have also done Return of the Jedi and are working on Empire now :) as it seems Disney have no intention of giving the fans what they want, if you have a 4K TV I highly recommend checking these out.

it really is something. I recommend people grab the DNR version. For non videophiles, this means some Digital Noise Removal and a bit of sharpening has been tastefully added. The version without this was a bit grainy even for my usually purist tastes.

Also, for those without 4k tellies, 1080p versions have been created too.

Presumably only way to watch it is through a laptop into the tv?!

I use Plex:

Which means I don't need to have the computer physically connected to my TV, it streams it over the wi-fi.

Finally got around to watching Star Wars last night. Wow, it blew me away. I was half expecting the extra detail to spoil some of the special effects, and yes in places for example you can see fingerprints on Vader's helmet, and some of the sets look painted etc, but what really blew me away was just how good and believable almost everything looked, especially the space battles. I still cannot believe this film was made in the 70s, it looks better than anything pre-2000 and even gives the newer Disney Star Wars films a run for their money.

Another surprising thing was how much better this version is than the SE. I have watched both so many times over the years they had kind of blended in to one and I'd forgotten which bits were new and old, so some of the scenes in this really amazed me, eg the scene where the X Wings approach the Death Star. How the f**k did they do that in 1976?!

Anyway, in summary, you need to see this!

I've recently had my garage converted in to a home cinema and the 4K77 version was the first film I watched in it :-)

Also, thanks for the heads up on the 4K83 (ROTJ UHD Edition) Edd. I wasn't aware of that and only had Harmy's Despecialized Edition.

Have just starting downloading ROTJ UHD Edition now :D
