Clone War, Balance of the Force, Phantom Edits...
After watching magnolia's re-edits and seeing how dramatically they improved the movie. What other movies (obviously Ep. I is the no-brainer) would you like to see re-editted to make a decent or good movie awesome?
4.) Dune - The theatrical release was a mess and I have heard there are edits out there, but damn there is some compelling story there if it was fixed. I'll think of more. And I am not talking about total reshoots, just working with the exisiting film and deleted scenes. BTW there is a fight scene taken out of brotherhood of the wolf that is sick and I have no idea why.
Again, I'd love to hear thoughts on my list and other movies you think could use some editing magic.
I heard a rumor on the Pantom Edit boards WAY BACK WHEN that someone was gonna do this - BUT I guess it was never done.
I have the TV version AKA The Alan Smitee Version on DVDr (3 hour edit - full screen) + the ANAMORPHIC widescreen both copied from the German offical DVD's.
I'd give em up for re-edits if someones really that ambitious
The Miniseries version was really bad though. Although the Lynch version is too short, its better than the miniseries version.
