TFA: A Gentle Restructure
Time

I guess since Poe is mentionned it’s about time to also talk about the ending, when SKB is destroyed. I would then suggest again to get rid of all the cheers scenes and to directly cut to the bitter scene at the Resistance H.Q. So no “our job here is done” and no “Leia hugs Rey while Chewie is vanishing in the background”.

The advanced aging characteristic of this office leads

The fact is that we don’t know if Obama would have aged the same way without being US (ie World) president. 8 years is quite a long time, everybody ages… except Keanu Reeves.

Although TPM and especially AOTC still sound stupid.

The Clones do attack some people AND there is a veiled phantomatic menace. The Sith take their revenge, there is then a new hope which leads to a retaliation and finally to a return, until something awakens. SW titles are good.

I’d be open to presenting the story thus far for a newcomer as:
Rogue One, 4, 5, 1, 2, 3, 6, 7

yeah almost like my machete order, but i take off TPM

That’s what makes it machete order.

But if you take fanedited versions which are “re-cut” versions, is it still machete order if you include TPM ? I think so.

I know it’s going to be historic. The man is funny AND seems to be efficient. Obama had good speeches but without intelligent actions speeches are worthless, and so are Obama’s 8 years: worthless.

Do you complain about your own country’s leaders this much?

Yep, and we took care of them:

  • Nicolas Sarkozy lost the republican party caucus (I voted against him)
  • his former foreign affairs minister Alain Juppé lost as well (I also voted against him)
  • François Hollande is not going to run for office again
  • his prime minister Manuel Valls is about to lose the socialist caucus

“Disney-LFL”, because Disney-Pixar usually delivers good movies, and Disney-Animation Studio has a few good titles since Lasseter took over.

I’d be very interested to know more about your own edit since I believe TFA needs as much fanedit work as the PT (so something like removing around 20 minutes). When “Restructure v2.0” is released are you going to open your own thread ?

Optional:
Remove sunset TIE shot

Noooooooooo 😦

Regrade outdoor scenes to evening/sunset

Why not. TFA looks fine but it could look better.

Change Maz’s line “Those beasts! They’re here.”

My man 😃

Put back cool X-wing shots from trailers in the battle

Good call here. I know someone already made it in his own edit.

The prequels don’t mesh with the OT at all and the ST is kind of a sequel reboot anyway.

A harsh statement albeit quite true in a way, but now I understand more why you didn’t like the “saga” banner used for SW.

I have a hard time with Rogue One being the very first exposure to Star Wars.

I know someone whose first SW is R1. She didn’t understand anything and doesn’t want to watch the other movies. ANH is still the best way to begin.

@stealthboy
If you really want to put R1 (“gosh!” but anyway, let’s accept the input parameters) why are you giving it such a weird place in your machete order and where are the prequels that are far better than R1 and TFA (and the point of machete is to use both trilogies by the way) ? R1 after TFA does not make any sense. That’s being said, before ANH would make more sense but the movie doesn’t work as a direct prequel because of too many inconsistencies in a movie supposed to take place 5 minutes five prior to ANH. Hard to know where to put it… so you shouldn’t put this direct-to-video Steven Seagal quality flick anywhere.

So in one day USA will finally get a good president ? It was about time ! When was the last good one ? JFK I think. 8 years of Obama, 12 of Bushes, 8 of Clintons… I pity you but now I kinda envy you 😃

Go Donald Go !

Release order, without the terrible Disney flicks, and with Episode I and II in fanedited versions.

what was the purpose of it in the first place?

It looks cool. But to be fair it’s more a Michael Bay shot than a “Apocalypse now” shot. Which is still a compliment (Bay’s movies are awful but they are full of great shots and beautiful pictural compositions).
