imagine if movie remakes happened like game remakes and ten years later you'd get the remastered version with better CGI and minor plot holes fixed

toy story 1 would look a lot better if they just rendered it again with better lighting

and fix the dog

back in the ps1 days all the games were either letterboxed or pan and scan

avatar remastered

experience the original classic now in 8K at 60 frames per second and an all new scene explaining the chemical properties of unobtanium

i saw the second hobbit movie in HFR 48fps

not only did it completely change my opinion on whether or not movies should be at higher frame rates, it also sucked as a movie

@lynnesbian Expected Fran Drescher to hop in with the most obnoxious NY accent possible and do awkward humor

@lynnesbian i assume you have a negative opinion of high frame-rate movies?? :p

@lynnesbian what is it you dislike about it out of interest? :3

@grufwub i know that everyone says they feel to fluid and unnatural

and i like it when games run at high framerates

but it feels to fluid and unnatural

@lynnesbian yeah i know what you mean. i went through a phase of really liking it a few years ago and even bought some frame interpolation software that increased viewed content framerate anywhere up to 60fps. it wasn't bad, but it did have an odd feel to it

@lynnesbian I think that might have actually happened for toy story's 3D version?


Didn't George Lucas try to polish the effects for Episode IV? and didn't it turn out awfully?

@lynnesbian That's actually kinda what Star Wars did. You can't find the true originals anymore, which trips me out

@lynnesbian imagine swapping out all that cis-normative crap with your own mods in a movie <3

@lynnesbian isn't that basically what George Lucas did to Star Wars?

@lynnesbian Bladerunner did this and it was a very good decision.

@lynnesbian Are you sure you want that? Isn't this what George Lucas tried to do with the original Star Wars, and now it's impossible to buy a DVD where Han shot first?

Fans may not agree with directors / producers / studio executives on what constitutes an improvement.

Now, if you could open source remastering movies, that could be interesting...

@lynnesbian Movie critics everywhere would be complaining because they think every actor's boobs are slightly smaller.
