Reason for edit
Nerdonymous spelling, and adding when Nerdonymous attacks fan preservations and fan edits in the summary of his video

Isn’t this already discussed at length in here:

https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/RocketJumps-Video-on-Star-Wars-being-saved-in-the-edit-is-Literally-a-Lie-no-it-is-not/id/84279/page/1

If that is the same video then it is a brave thing to post on here considering it shits on fan preservations and fan edits in the 15 minute summary at the end. Rocket Jump talking about the Special Editions, George Lucas making “tons of unnecessary changes”, and the unaltered theatrical cuts being the version of the films that won the Oscar for best editing, really seemed to trigger Nerdonymous.

And so Nerdonymous went on another rant about fans who didn’t like what George did with the Special Editions, or prefer the unaltered theatrical cut, somehow want to “take everything away from Lucas” and “burn Lucas to the ground”. Because some people did a video talking about the power of editing film and how it can have a big effect in general, this film especially? And Nerdonymous thinks that the Rocket Jump video is somehow an “attack video” and an attempt to discredit George Lucas? He had droned on for 2 hours, and often repeated himself, so it was difficult to stay focused. He really needs a good editor. Anyone know of any?

Correct. He did a lot of research clearly which is really awesome. And it proves that RocketJump wasn’t exactly being genuine in his portrayal of Lucas and the making of the movie.

I’ve discussed this video with people here before, and people got upset about it. And yeah, the guy can be passive aggressive and somewhat mean, which is a problem, but a lot of the points are still valid. I can understand being mad about slander and misinformation about something you love at the same time though. People getting upset at the video was also probably partially due to the way I talked about it, due to my explosive nature. I think you’ll get a lot better reception as you’re way cooler and more level-headed and this post is much more objective.

You got schooled hard in that thread. Sorry, I didn’t see anyone in there upset apart from you, the like minded troll, and some weird claims from you about the Rocket Jump video, like “So uh, yeah… Goerge Lucas didn’t suck and it wasn’t the editors that created Star Wars”, getting taken apart.

Then the 2 hour Nerdonymous video also got taken apart in there.

Like I said above, I think it was a brave thing to post that Nerdonymous video on here considering it shits on fan preservations and fan edits. Brave or stupid or maybe naive, if you thought nobody would call that part of the video out. No disrespect, just saying it like I see it.
