The legality of downloading Harmy's Despecialized Edition is contentious. As a fan edit, the cut cannot be legally bought or sold, and treads a line between fair use and copyright infringement. OriginalTrilogy.com states that the edits are "made for culturally historical and educational purposes" and that they are "to be shared among legal owners of the officially available releases only". Consequently, the films are only available via various BitTorrent trackers and through specialized rapid download programs using file sharing sites. Harmáček himself remarked: "I'm convinced that 99% of people who download this already bought Star Wars 10 times over on DVD." As of 2015[update], he had received no legal challenge from Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, the owner of Lucasfilm and 20th Century Studios, over the Despecialized Edition.
Reaction to Harmy's Despecialized Edition has been universally positive. Writing for Inverse, Sean Hutchinson placed it at number one on his list of the best Star Wars fan edits, and described it as "the perfect pre-1997 way to experience the saga". Whitson Gordon of Lifehacker called the edits "the best version of Star Wars you can watch", and named them "the version of Star Wars we've all been clamoring for the last 20 years". Similarly, Nathan Barry of Wired praised the films as "an absolute joy to watch", while Gizmodo described them as "very, very good". In an article listing Ars Technica's favorite Star Wars items, Sam Machkovech selected Harmy's Despecialized Edition, calling it "a treat".
Hey Blackwinter-witch thanks for your help. Unfortunately it does not; only a trailer is available on youtube. I've contacted him (twice in several months) and haven't heard a reply. It seems he's no longer active...I was hoping one of the veterans would be kind enough to steer me towards an active link. Apparently it's the best edit, so it strikes me kind of odd it isn't more widely available.
While we value very much that Prometheus doesn't focus on being shiny but onactually working and delivering value while being reasonably easy to deploy andoperate - especially the Alertmanager leaves a lot to be desired yet. Just somesimple improvements like simplified interactive alert building and editing inthe frontend would go a long way in working with alerts being even simpler.
Aliens has the latter problem, one it's propelled into future movies and videogames: "This time it's war," the trailer announced. Cameron himself wasn't above pandering to both sides, openly apologizing to the United States Marine Corps. for his unglamorous depiction of the military (see: his commentary track for Aliens in the Alien Quadrilogy edition). Cameron's concession only muddies the waters further, as do future attempts by him to generate money through the energetic depiction of war (re: Avatar).
Flash Gordon was one of a fistful of films that emerged after the Star Wars phenomena. Many were rushed Hollywood SciFi scripts (Black Hole, Meteor, Saturn 3, Battle Beyond The Stars). Flash took a different course, spoof over story. Camp more than special effects. The result was a mixed bag.Havok1977 removed much of the stupidity, making this a sleeker, less dumb version.This edit is more intelligent than the original. The overall story remains childrens fare, but this child has a brain.He also heavily tweaked the original color design. More on that.
Film credits serve the important purpose of acknowledging the hard work and skills of both on-screen and behind-the-scenes personnel and consists of many specialists who perform a wide range of tasks to create movies. 2b1af7f3a8
