    I meant the non 'THX remastered' versions (I have them on VHS, too)... as per 1977, etc theatrical release.

    It's the original, mid-late 80's boxset.

    just search for star wars harmy despecilaised.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harmy's_Despecialized_Edition

    last i heard he was spposed to be releasing a new version of one of the films but there hasnt been one yet


    6 underground 6/10 have read alot about it and alot of its really negative, but its a Micheal bay flick. not great and not the worst either at the end of the day its an action movie but Ryan Reynolds is wasted in this movie

    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood 7/10

    Not Tarantino's best but still alright. About an hour longer than it needs to be!

    Mandalorian ep7 8/10 nicely building up towards a decentish ending

    Rise of the Skywalker 6/10 kinda really wished lucas had at least made the Thrawn trilogy in animated form rather than the mess disney gave us.
    ending strongly hints that one day the two sabers will go to reys kids will prolly be called luke and leia prolly means 10 odd years from now disney are gonna try and "reboot" ep4 new hope
    also the main big screen at the local show case had it on 3d only and its got naff 3d effects if anyones planing on watching it go for 2d.

    Pretty much all of Tarantino's films are an hour longer than they need to be...

    Jumanji: The Next Level 7/10
    A enjoyable, if a bit predictable, couple of hours.
    Didnt really add anything new that the first "reboot" didnt; and if anything lacked any element of peril relating their "lives"...

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker - 5/10

    strictly average, but in all fairness, I don't envy anyone tasked with unf***ing the trilogy after the charlie-foxtrot that was TLJ. Damn shame, because this entire trilogy had moments of brilliance. Also, so much great modern day VFX was wasted on this garbage storyline, really burns me up...

    Reading things like this makes me glad I refused to acknowledge anything Lucas had no (direct) hand in producing/directing... past Ep.III

    and Rouge one

    as for me, id give the movie a 5, but considering the utter Dogpile that TLJ was, perhaps a 7...

    i think JJ did well with what he had to work with, but story wise and with KK breathing down his neck 24/7 id say it ended about as well as it could have
    Worth watching imo

    Star Wars Eps 1-3 , holly **** these have aged badly/10 not watched these for ages and my son wanted to watch all the movies again since we watched ep9 last weekend, compared to the orignal 3 movies these have aged terribly imho even the orignal cut from the 70/80s without the updated effects looks this bad

    The Irishman 8/10 the de-aging didnt look as bad as most people are saying, it looked crap in the trailer but its better in the movie watched it with my 11yr old obviously he dosnt know deniro,pacino & pesci are and he was surprised that they had be de-aged in alot of the scenes. as for the movie it self if it can keep a young-un like my lad whose mind has been poisoned by cgi/daft stunt shenanigans like the mcu flicks fully engaged then scorsease di a stellar job.

    Raid 2 8/10 more story based than the first one and awesome fight scenes damn shame the planned trillogy wont be complete :/

    Atomic Blond 7/10
    decent flick catches the 80s vibe ok doesnt seem as brilliant as peeps say if you watch it right after Raid 2
    so was percival the good guy?

    Not really a film more a documentary but.

    8 days: To the moon and back 9/10

    Basically a reconstruction using mainly the previously classified cockpit audio basically people lip syncing it, really brings it to life, brilliantly done IMO.

    Mandalorian season 1 8/10 very decent series ,notes kuil steels the eps he was in not too jam packed with chi and they handled the lore surrounding mandalorians really well. It is very much like Western cowboy series

    I'll be damned if Favreau did not pick the lore from the Expended Univers.
