4K version of Jedi source material incorrect for
Verified purchase
Ok so firstly this isn’t a review of the standard version of return of the Jedi but the 4K uhd version that I’ve just bought digitally and when coming to review its reviews are bundled with the standard hd version! 4K Star Wars films were added this Monday (I assume the others are coming soon) and I bought all 5 as they are at a reasonable price! The other 4 films worked fine but the colour saturation on the 4K version of Jedi is all over the place, reds are turned up to max and it looks like every character has sunburn but any reds aren’t coming out right, I also tried running it through my 4K blu ray player and same issue! I contacted amazon chat and was offered a refund but felt like they were ignoring the problem! I’ve got over 50 uhd videos on amazon and have no issues with the rest of them! I’d avoid this till the source video has been removed and re uploaded again!

Warning: DO NOT PURCHASE!!!! Broken Saturation in UHD Jedi
Verified purchase
Wrote this when it came out. Its still broken in February 2021. DO NOT BUY.
This concerns the 4k UHD download/streaming version of Return of the Jedi.
IT'S BROKEN.
The saturation of red is stupidly high throughout the movie. It makes people look irradiated.
AMAZON NEED TO RE-ENCODE IT OR SOMETHING. DON'T PAY FOR IT.
I also have the UHD versions of A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and The Phantom Menace. None of these have broken saturation so it's definitely a something wrong with the encoding of this particular film.

Greatest ending to a trilogy ever.
Verified purchase
Yeah, Yeah, I know... surely Empire is the greatest of the three films, Yes and no. Empire is great but reconsider Jedi, firstly there's John Williams building on his already very popular soundtrack with "Parade of the Ewoks", a great piece that is so different from the other tracks. then There is the whole Jabba's palace part of Star Wars, so many characters hanging around those scenes you've gotta think, Disney must be looking at the spin offs from the whole of that opening act. and then there's the famous "IT'S A TRAP" battle scene which is just a joy to ride. The only down side is the CGI add in's that has been commented on so many times before so I'm not even gonna go into it. This was and always will be the satisfying end to the trilogy that I loved so much. Just try and seek out the original over the new upgraded (ghost of Anakin) version. you won't regret it.

4K Version broken on Amazon Prime Video
Verified purchase
Too much red in the image on my 4K TV, if I watch in 4K on PC it is again too much red but if I change to 1080 the colour is normal. It is only this movie that has this problem in my Prime collection.

If I was reviewing just the movie, it would, of course, get 5 stars.

Still probably the best Star Wars film and the revamped edition was fine by me
Verified purchase
I'd stayed away from the revamped versions of the original trilogy on principle, not liking the idea of extra CGI etc. However I weakened, simply for the convenience of a digital version while having no access temporarily to my main home cinema system. In fact, I found the revamped version fine, and enjoyed it very much. I'm not sure the added scenes really add a great deal, but I didn't find them bothersome either. And there seems to have been little or no interference with the key scenes and dialogue exchanges that I, like most fans I'm sure, treasure the most and recall fondly from early screenings (I never saw Star Wars itself during its first cinema release, but did see a first-run cinema screening of Return of the Jedi in the Odeon Leicester Square ... what an atmosphere). When I regain access to my home cinema kit, and can run the ancient Laserdisk copies (still the only home format apart from VHS for the true original cinema versions AFAIK and fortunately my examples remain unaffected by the notorious "Laserdisk rot") it will be interesting to compare the detailed differences. However, an academic exercise is all it will be. This remains a simple but powerful story, sometimes derivative and cliche-heavy perhaps, but I don't think you can deny the strength of Lucas's basic vision, and it comes through unscathed in these versions.

As good now as it ever was
Verified purchase
I have seen this film many times but watched it again as part of my rewatching of all the main canon films, including Rogue One, which is a good immediate prequel to episode 4. Before seeing the final film. in the sequel trilogy.
I find it really fitting that Carrie Fisher appears posthumously in the final film.
When she heard that she had got the part in the original film she apparently said, "It was raining in LA and I was Leia, I would never again not be Leia".

Brilliant
Verified purchase
Always a good entertaining film and story. So many themes to inspire imaginations. I would say it kept my charges occupied for the afternoon but after insisting on watching the original they talked all the way through...some people have no respect. Anyways I love Star Wars, And will likely invest in the whole set when I’m over my covid skintness. Which explains why I only rented instead of bought.

4K UHD Version unwatchable! Do not buy!
Verified purchase
The 4K UHD Version is absolutely unwatchable. Like trying to watch the VHS version on a 30 year old TV with the contrast turned up full. All the other 4K Star Wars movies are fine so there's something wrong with this particular file. Why are Amazon still charging for this when it seems people have been reporting the fault for months. Get it fixed!
