I was an idiot and chose the gold one. That's okay because I was only 16 at the time so all is forgiven.

Widescreen is the original aspect ratio. Fullscreen is cropped for 4:3 TVs

basically fullscreen is for retards who can't deal with black bars on the screen

Why do these black bars exist at all?

How's disc rot treating you?
>>
>>64488793
Because the movies are in around 2.35:1 wide ratio, but TVs in the 90s were around 1.35:1 ratio and tvs now are around 1.73:1, therefore the movie is wider than the screen.
>>
>>64488831
You make digital copies of the laserdisc, silly goose.
>>
>>64488793
do you even into aspect ratios? movies are filmed in an extremely wide aspect ratio, whereas TVs are either in 4:3 (almost square) or 16:9 (widescreen). film aspect ratio is wider than both, so when you put a movie on a tv, it's scaled to fit the screen while preserving the aspect ratio, thus resulting in black bars. that is. whereas if you get the fullscreen version, it fucks the aspect ratio to make it fit the whole screen, making the picture look shite.

I guess cinema screens have been (and still are?) 2.35:1 ratio?

Just forget Star Wars until the Disney sets. I'm sure they'll do a special "original cut" set.
>>
>>64490064
Only if they manage to make a deal with Fox, since they own the original Star Wars forever.
>>
>>64490116
If they can't, rip Star Wars. Uncut Empire and Jedi would still be nice.
>>
>>64490116
Fox literally made that god awful Fantastic Four reboot and lost hundreds of millions of dollars just so they wouldn't have to give the rights to the Fantastic Four to Disney. They would rather lose huge sums of money than allow another company even the POTENTIAL to make money

They will hold onto Star Wars distribution rights for all time

Disney already has digital rights to every movie but Star Wars. Why do you think Force Awakens was a fucking remake?

>>64490582
Which means they own the clips on the internet. But they can't distribute without fox letting them.

flashback to middle school sleepover trying to convince my friends to pick widescreen instead of fullscreen for some shit like rush hour 2 or something. fullscreen won ;__;

I know that feel friend. I always lost as well. Could never get them to understand and even if some did they didn't care. Thanks to widescreen tvs the tyranny of full screen is at an end though.

I find it mind boggling anyone manages to enjoy fullscreen. I get treated like some autistic nerd whenever I bring up the benefit of watching in widescreen.

Went to my friend's place before seeing TFA to watching ROTJ and he pull out the gold box. I told him I had the widescreen version in my car and he REFUSED to watch it in anything but fullscreen. Having not watched a fullscreen movie in years I figured it would be no big deal.

HOLY CRAP is it painful. Just watching the opening crawl I was distraught at how poorly it fit on the screen. At the obviously zoomed in scenes were disgusting. My friend event commented something along the lines of "It's so hard to read the lines when they come on screen!" I mentioned that widescreen would fix that but he wouldn't have it.
>>

why cant there be fullscreen without black bars

Had the same experience recently. Got out the old VHS tapes of the original trilogy (1995 edition before the special editions) and enjoyed it thoroughly. But the full screen was still extremely annoying.

Wanna know the sad part? He graduated from film school two years ago.

And he prefers the prequels.

Then he obviously learned nothing.

>>64490341

Their distribution rights on the rest of the films expire in 2020, they'll essentially have no choice but to sell the last one.

>>64488609
Why would they give the shittier version the better box?

Look carefully, it's the original that's tied up in the original agreement with Fox for distribution. Empire and all the rest afterwards aren't subject to it but the original is.

My brother got the gold vhs box set for Christmas in 97, it was the only version I had access to for a good while til I learned how to torrent - the special editions are terrible, some improvements are okay like the color balancing and mixing but there are way too many unforgivable additions like the cgi Jabba and the infamous scream in empire

Is there a reason that theres 1.66 and 2.35 still? It is just a directorial preference over which widescreen you want?
