Jeez, that must have been a VCD Rip or something which was basically a VSH recording on disk
It was dreadful. Watched on a 14" screen.

Full screen - The Artifacts
Reduced screen size - Is this a cinema for ants?

Yeah I had a wonky copy of The Phantom Menace on VHS yonks before it came out on VHS over here which was dark as hell and sometimes had a few heads bobbing up and down at the bottom of the screen.

Think I paid £15 for that as well lol, always watched it on a 14" TV

Jeez those were dark dark times

Saying all this Steven Spielberg basically invented video piracy with ET buy not releasing it on VHS for yonks in the UK!

I just found the original un-fucked-about-with version of the Star wars trilogy on DVD. It will be nice to see the movies how they were intended to be seen again and not with all the extra ginkgonks and plinkplonks digitally inserted for no reason. And Han DID shoot first!

Ah don't get me started on that. I would LOVE to have the 4K version of the original films instead of the god awful mess we have now with Anakin ghost appearing at the end of Return of the Jedi and jabba the hut being in slug form in a new hope

winds me up even thinking about it! I think the last time I had the originals must have been in VHS format in the mid 90s

So I've gone to the dark side and got me an Apple TV 4k.

It arrives tomorrow. £150 from Apple direct.
