The Prequel Radical Redux Ideas Thread
Time

Transfer all of Anakin’s anger from Obi-Wan to Mace Windu. For instance, his response to Padme’s “you are more mature now” could easily be edited to “Master Windu manages not to see it”. Cut his rant. This could tie with Windu’s distrust of Anakin in the first film, and would pay off when he gets his hand chopped off. This way you can retain a good friendship with Obi-Wan and frustration with the Council.

General Star Wars Random Thoughts Thread
Time

I find it funny that the climax of Star Wars was edited to have to have the Death Star preparing to fire… and in Return of the Jedi the Death Star preparing to fire was deleted.

Extreme Prequel Plot Holes And Inconsistencies
Time

It always seemed to me that twist was meant to cash-in with Vader’s own revelation, and on its downside it shrunk that universe further. However, it’s not enough to ruin the movie for me, as the payoff to that sisterhood is Luke’s brief taste of the Dark Side, which is one the better scenes in the trilogy. The progression of the Skywalker/Vader narrative, while bumpy still managed to provide a satisfiying whole despite its improvised nature.

Rumors

I love rumors! Facts can be so misleading, where rumors, true or false, are often revealing.

Despecialized Revisions

There some bits and pieces of GOUT left to be replaced, but aside from those I don’t know what further improvements could be made.

George Lucas

I agree some of the deleted material is fairly cringey. However, what remains in the finished film does come across competent filmmaking. Editing improved, the music and sound design made potentially boring scenes more interesting, but when I see fragments of the workprint I see material that needs work, not necessarily a doomed production. Raw footage hardly seems convincing in any film.

Deleted Magic and the recreation of the original climax does reveal it to be less exciting than what we ultimately got, but I doesn’t like something in the same level as the prequels.

Are the people here of the opinion that George was never talented, or do you guys think it’s more of a Francis Ford Coppola situation where he just lost his touch?

The second. Star Wars is a fine film. It is often said that it was saved in editing, and that the first cut was terrible, but I simply can’t picture the editors turning a really bad film into the one we know today. If anything, post-production enhanced material that was already in place.

ANDREAS presents: Star Wars - Episode I - The Ancient Lore [Remade]
Time

You’re making the underwater city the actual sanctuary? It’s great to see that finally implemented in an edit. It always bothered the so called “safer place” where Gungans took refuge was nearer to the invaded zone, and in broad daylight. Reminds me of that Scorpion King movie where a bunch of people was “hidden” in a plainly visible oasis, and were like “you people are bringing the enemy” when the zeroes arrived there.

How Do I Explain "Slave Leia" To My Kids? Any Ideas?
Time

What’s the deal with these recent “children and Star Wars” threads? A lot of current fans were introduced to the franchise when they were lads, and I hardly see any of them telling stories of being traumatized or getting the wrong message out of these PG rated movies.

This is not meant to be a criticism on the posters, mind you, it just boggles the mind to see it brought up all of a sudden.

What is wrong with Attack of the Clones?
Time

While I agree AoTC is the worst SW movie, I wouldn’t consider the factory scene to be the worst overrall. The duel with Grievous is much more tiring and ridiculous.

Introducing Star Wars to young children
Time

The best way to introduce someone who’s never seen Star Wars, is introduce these people through OOT, in whatever format that can be found (Harmy, GOUT, VHS, etc), and neglect to mention anything other Star Wars media. Should children discover the prequels, sequels, and shitquels on their own, you must be prepared. They’ll ask about them. The initial response must be to tell them those movies are boring, try to make them as unnatractive as possible. If they still ask to see them, show it to them, but try to achieve rejection, without explictitly forbiding them boys to watch those movies. Mind you, avoid traumatizing them, as that’d be bad parenthood.

A good strategy, for instance, picture the text about “Trade Taxations of the Trade Routes” appearing, use this oportunity to explain the children in detail what taxation is and talk them about the economy. Every time Qui-gon says something stupid, you can make a quip like “children, don’t be like this man”.

If that doesn’t work, try unleashing a disgusting hodor around the house, so they’ll relate the experience of watching those films to such unpleasantness. Serving a foul meal when they watch the film can also work.
