Ep. III Chronology custom cut: Hal9000/TM2YC

Makes sense, I suppose. No problem about it from me.

Hey, thanks. I mean, this honestly only makes sense in my own obsessive nitpicky sort of way. But, I figured, if I was going to spend time to splice these edits together, I should at least make it available. And it seems that the obsessive nitpicking is kind of central to this forum anyway.

Have to admit that what I’m doing feels a bit like:

But I feel I was able to insert TM2YC’s edits seemlessly enough.

Would there be a way to remove Anakin’s point of view throughout the prequels, keeping the narrative through the eyes of Obi-Wan (or maybe Obi-Wan and Padme), and maintain a solid story? With the idea being that we only see Anakin’s fall through the eyes of the people closest to him.

Ep. III Chronology custom cut: Hal9000/TM2YC
Time

A couple years ago, I finally came upon this beautiful community when searching for Harmy’s Despecialized Editions. At the time, I had no idea how many serious faneditors there were out there doing quite amazing things with these movies we love and hate. I’ve watched about just as many prequel edits as I possibly can, noting along the way the particularly impressive works of people like Q2, L8wrtr, TM2YC, and Hal9000. There were things I found great about each edit, and things that still bothered me. Recently, Octorox has produced edits for Episode I and II that I think take the best aspects of these previously mentioned editors and collect them all in one place. Honestly, I’m just eagerly awaiting what they will do for Episode III.

So in the meantime, I’ve made for myself something to hold me over. It’s literally just Hal9000’s Labyrinth of Evil, but any mention of Darth Vader has been replaced with TM2YC’s edit, and the last ten or so minutes, from Anakin’s death to the delivery of Luke, has been replaced with TM2YC’s edit. This retains Padme’s death/funeral as well as keeps the birth of Vader out of the movie. The original crawl has been reintstated as well.

Many will think this is pointless, which it largely is, and some will think it’s a bit disrespectful. But it’s what I’m going to be using personally (allowing, in some esoteric part of my mind, me to watch the movies in chronological order without spoiling anything [I’m calling it a Hal9000/TM2YC Chronology Cut]), and someone else may find it useful as well.

MP4 and DVD5 now available.

Would “counter” work better than “combat” in your latest crawl? “Combat the attack” sounds like “attack the attack” to me.

The Last Jedi: Legendary (SPOILERS)
Time

I took the cut from Finn asking “Where’s Rey?” to Rey handing the saber to Luke as being a cut back in time a few days at least. The chase is happening in real time and Rey’s attempt to bring Luke back catches up to the present. At least, she’d need more than one night for everything to occur.

…but maybe that depends on how fast hyperspace is and how far their jump to lightspeed took them. (Surely someone here knows the answer to that.) Because it seems like the chase story and battle would have taken around a day’s time.

A lot of it has to do with the time period between TFA and TLJ. TFA ended in a cliffhanger, meaning that TLJ had to answer it immediately. If there was somehow a timeskip between the two, a lot of the plot holes you brought up wouldn’t exist.

natedeug's The Last Jedi Polished edit (extended and redacted)

The thing about the southern Stormtrooper scene is that, with a bit of searching, better dialogue could be inserted easily after removing Tom Hardy’s jokey lines. Since all you need is dialogue that intimidates Finn, you could theoretically have the trooper say anything. It doesn’t have to be recognition, it could be something like “Officer, is there something the matter?” and a single line from Jon Boyega saying “…No.”

With the right music cue and timing it’d work great.

If someone could pull that off, yeah that’d be really excellent.

Here are three more clips:

Revised Canto Bight Escape:
-I feel like I initially took too much out of the chase, and a better transition from stables to casino.

Stormtroopers in elevator:
-I liked the deleted infiltration scene, but that western accent on the stormtrooper (not to mention the slap-ass moment) were too much.

Crait - no ship hating, one less porg shot, no Hux echo:
-Just what it says.

For the ending, you can let the score play out as intended instead of cutting early. It builds to a nice climax and then you can quick cross-fade audio to the credits. I was able to do it and it plays very convincingly.

You will need to make a small audio cut somewhere inconspicuous to get it to line up right with the video.

Have you posted this sequence somewhere? I’d like to see (hear) what you are talking about.

Here’s the first instance of caretaker removal. I just might end up doing two versions: one with deleted scenes and one without, since I think their inclusion is dubious even if they were fully polished, which they aren’t. I like a few of them quite a bit, but I understand why they were cut and they aren’t 100% presentable.
If I don’t use the Rey caretaker party scene, I think the caretakers’ only plot related role would be lost and they’d be more effective on the cutting room floor. The tone of the Luke/Rey thread would be improved IMHO, since there’d be no real payoff to their presence anymore.

This could work well, but the only problem is that we lose the clear snap-back-to-reality/no-longer-in-force-trance moment that you get with the caretakers. I also personally love the caretaker party scene and think it does a lot for character motivations.

Watched your edits:

Poe’s Intro - The idea of having NO conversation between Poe and Hux, this can work, with Hux being puzzled by a lone light fighter and NOT firing on it right away since the X-wing boost happens right away. I would also like to see an edit that trims the conversation as opposed to eliminating it all the way. However, this does stand on itself very well.

Maz Convo - Any reduction to this scene is a plus. Nicely done!

Fathier Escape - Same view with the Maz Convo. I would have to watch it again, but man, if there was a quick scene of the kid looking up to the Fathier and smirk … then it cuts to the tea cup rattling … that would be great.

I agree that it works better with a shot of the kid looking up at the fathier, but I couldn’t get the audio to transition as smoothly doing that. I’m sure someone else who is better at these things will be able to figure that out.

Ending with Post-Credit scene - I REALLY like the idea of a post credit scene with the kid. I am not sure if the actually ending works right … it doesn’t seem right to me since it seems rushed.

Also agree there. It’s a little rushed.
