The revolution will not be televised: How Lucas modernised audio in film

Big-nosed Pengie
Facepalm

Decent stories and good acting make up for any amount of shite sound and bad projection.

No amount of sound and projection engineering can make up for the fact that Star Wars is is just cheap and nasty space opera that would have worked equally well (!) in the Wild West.

Big-nosed Pengie

Since I swapped to VDSL2 from cable, I've been getting consistent 70Mbps download and 30Mbps upload speeds. I understand that, when I'm compelled to change to the NBN when it arrives in my area in 2018, I can look forward to 25Mbps download and who knows what upload. No wonder they call it "fraudband".
