Anyone check this epic fanedit out yet?

STATS:
Blankfist presents all prequels combined to one hell of a Star Wars movie:

THE FALL OF THE REPUBLIC

This is going to blow you away. The image quality of this DVD is good, especially because its source was a quicktime movie.
Boon23 authored a nice SW DVD for you all to hopefully enjoy.
This project has my deepest respect for boldly going where no one went before.

This is the yet darkest take ever on these movies. And it works well. Be surprised.

original film name: Star Wars - The Prequel Trilogy
new film name: The Fall Of The Republic
film studio name : Lucasarts
Date Original Film Was Released : 1997 to 2003
Date Edit Was Released : 26th of June 2007 (as quicktime movie)
Old Running Time: approx 7 hours
New Running Time: about 3h
Cut: you do the math.

The edits:

The Phantom Menace was reduced to just 20 minutes. It shows most of all how Anakin became the Padawan of Obi Wan
Attack Of The Clones is completed in 45 minutes and most of all is about Anakin and Obi WanG??s discovery of the clone army.
Revenge Of The Sith takes now 110 minutes and features the crisis which lead to the rise of the Sith as well as AnakinG??s path to the dark side.
DVD Details:

2.35:1 widescreen presented in 16:9
NTSC
static DVD menu
animated chapter menu
info menu
DD 5.1 audio

Conceptual improvements/advancements of edit over original:
This is a much darker take on the rise of Darth Vader and the Fall of the Jedi Republic. Lots and lots of unnecessary scenes were cut to solely focus on what really matters: how did the dark side take over?

Persons involved:

idea and editing: blankfist
DVD authoring, encoding, cover art: boon23

Star Wars: Fall of the Republic (recut) Widescreen Dual Layer DVD

Thanks to many requests. Here's the original HIGH-RES DVD files. I hope you all enjoy it. Because it seemed to be a hot topic, I also included cover art and disc art. Let me know if this is looking okay for everyone. I really love feedback on this cut, whether it be positive or negative. Thanks.

ABOUT THE RECUT:

This is a recut of the new Star Wars trilogy into a single movie with a total running time of just under 3 hours. Phantom Menace makes up the first 20 mins, AOTC makes up the next 45 mins, and ROTS makes up the rest of the movie. I hope you enjoy it.

Hey, Kaine. I'd like to check this project out! MiniNova says I need either uTorrent or WYZO to download it. Do you have a recommendation for one over the other?

I've been posting and downloading to and from things like YouSendIt.com, RapidShare and MegaUpload, but I've never really ventured far into torrent sites and such. Any knowledge you can drop? Thanks.

What's your email? Utorrent is probably the easiest of all the clients I've used actually.

What appears to be a single layered version of this is up on mininova.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Don't bother with the single-layer version if you plan on watching this on your TV or home theater. It's got pixels the size of dinner plates. Extremely low quality.

On one hand, I think it's a noble effort. On the other, I don't think there's any way it could have been successful. On the other other hand, I think it could have been more successful than it is.

A few things are handled quite well. I like the way Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan's arrival on the Trade Federation ship at the beginning of Ep1 goes right into the Darth Maul fight. There are a few nice touches like that. But on the whole, as much as I admire the effort that went into it, it just doesn't work as a film, and I found it difficult to complete.

The bigger problem I see is that I don't think it's possible that anyone who hasn't seen the original films could possibly follow it. No time is given to introducing the characters at all. Padme is just sort of there, and is apparently somewhat fond of Ani. The two Jedis are there, and are apparently Jedis. Jar Jar is there, but he doesn't say anything, which is welcome for the initiated but weird otherwise to just have this mute CG guy flopping around for no reason. Many scenes just don't make any sense, not that they necessarily did to begin with, but they're even more non-sensical here.

One major head-thumper: the "I don't like sand" scene is here. What?!? How do you chop a few hours out of the prequel trilogy and leave the single worst moment intact? Definitely led me to question the editor's priorities, that's for sure.

Another note I might give is to slow down the opening crawl. The crawl text itself is not too bad, and gives a reasonable explanation of where we are at the beginning of the story, but the text has already receded to the point of illegibility long before the opening theme music is finished. So we sit there for what seems like a very long time, just watching these tiny yellow lines march off into the distance. There's a lot of information there, it would have helped to have the extra time to read it. (I actually had to pause the DVD to take it all in.)

If the editor reads this, I hope he doesn't take it as too much of a slam. For what was probably an impossible task to begin with, I'd give it a solid B-. It's certainly better than watching the actual films, but only by virtue of being shorter, not better. It's an intriguing enough concept that I would take the time to watch v2.0, but I think it will take a lot of reworking to make it an enjoyable viewing experience.
