Jeremy Northam and Tushka Bergen in Voices (from a Locked Room), 1995.

Music critic Philip Heseltine cozies up to chanteuse Lily Buxton. She lets him, even though she tells him she doesn’t like music critics. The fact that he’s just given her a great review probably helps his cause. Or maybe it’s because he looks so dashing in his fedora.  

(Sorry the quality of the image isn’t better. Voices was never released on DVD, so this cap was made from a VHS transfer.)

Noooooooooooo! That sound you heard was my screech of pain at you joining the Hiddles wagon. :p Do you know what you'll be tagging those posts with?

Well it’s been looming in the back ground as inevitability for a while now.  I’ve been posting a lot of Hiddles in tweed on my tweed blog.  I’m going to watch The Hollow Crown soon as it on streaming services now.  Henry V in the mud…

Oh to answer your question, maybe “inevitable bandwagon.”  Are you asking so you can catch them or tumblr savior them out?

DOWNLOAD THESE NOW! Well, after you follow the link and read the GREAT article. Truly amazing and inspiring. Every true Star Wars fan needs to thank this guy.

I agree.  So often when watching a blu ray of a film for the first time, I feel like I’m watching a whole new movie.  I see details I’ve never noticed before and am dazzled by the colors and textures I’ve missed watching poorer quality media.  While watching the deSpecialized Star Wars, I really felt almost emotional about it.  I don’t think I’ve really watched this film as an adult.  I’ve seen it hundreds of times on VHS, laserdisc rips and the 2006 DVD, of course, but I haven’t seen the colors like this since watching the Special Editions in the theater and those were palpably marred by Lucas’ boneheaded additions.  I haven’t seen this movie looking this good since 1978 when I watched the re-release in the theater.  
And because I’m on an Alec Guinness kick of late (thanks in part to Idlesuperstar’s great posts) I was really focusing on his performance and how he anchors every scene he’s in, especially those with Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford.  I’m so glad Alec made a fortune on Star Wars.  He deserved it.
The OP is right.  Every Star Wars fan should thank Harmy and then download his work.  Until Disney decides to do justice to the OT, we have these fan edits to keep us going.  Who know, these edits might even be better…
