Your signature implies condescention over a user’s opinion, and also implies user is a pervert over said
opinion. All over a female character who, unless there’s a part of the movie I’m forgetting, was not sexualized in any way. Her outfits are not revealing and she never once acts promiscuous. So when you say appreciating her is “thinking with your dick”, that makes YOU the pervert for sexualizing a character simply for being a female, when the character was in fact not sexual at all. There, how’s that?

INSERT HERE “face palm meme” of your choice

Dude… really… anyway, if you have issues with that there is a magic tool called “start a private topic” you can use (or you can start trying to understand that there are things you don’t get and that you should grow up to let them go, instead of posting such a whining message you should be ashamed of).

Now, again, if you have issues the place to deal with is not here, so stop contaminating unrelated threads.

EDIT: so it seems you really don’t get it. Well, if you don’t care/mind/whatever, just stop posting about it…

Yeah coming from a guy whose Sig says simply liking a character means you don’t know anything, that sure means a hell of a lot. And if you think I care enough what you think to start a private topic you’re out of your mind. Let’s not forget that you did ask what was wrong with it, even if it was somebody else you were asking. But go ahead, keep the snobby attitude over things which are your opinion. And before You try to accuse me of the same thing, my problem is not that you don’t like the character/film, But your attitude that anyone who does is inferior to you.
But I agree this isn’t the place to discuss it. Because there isn’t a place to discuss something so worthless.

Some new box art for Episode I and my upcoming Episode II edit. I didn’t do the sides or back but someone else is free to do them if they want. Episode III will probably have Obi-Wan:

Cool stuff. So, about the “love montage”, what’s your final version ? You had some very good ideas in the clips you posted last month.

Good news! Episode II is done. I still need to compile a changelist and make a write up before I upload, but expect to see it on myspleen soon. I still think Ep2 is the weakest of the 3 but this is about as satisfied as I think I will get with it. And to answer your question MalaStrana, not a ton has changed with the love montage from the clips I showed before, but there has been some polish. I guess you’ll see exactly how it plays out after I upload the edit 😃.

I made myself an edit of Ep3 about a year ago but never got around to uploading it. One thing that I tried to do in my edits was work on the music during fights to make it seem all the more ‘epic’. Something that I would absolutely love is for one of the music mixes I added onto the mustafar fight in ep3 to end up in your edit Octorox. The link below shows this in action. PM me if you want the audio which I added to the scene.

I mixed together Duel of the fates and battle of heroes and timed it to the lava explosion whilst adding a lightsaber sound effect and lowering the volume of the original music.

This is my favorite edit of ep1, but any chance for a higher bitrate release? Perhaps like a 18ish gb mkv that I could burn to a bd22 comfortably? I watch on a huge screen. Obviously don’t do it just for me, bit was curious if that was a possibility.

Funny you should mention this. Something like that should be coming very soon!

Large blu-ray compatible mkvs of both Episode I and II now exist. Check the spleen or PM me for more info 😉

Just got a chance to watch this.

Overall, this definitely improves the experience of watching The Phantom Menace. The pace is brisk without feeling rushed (usually), and the performances are often improved through the omission of certain cringey dialogue.

The specifics (in order of appearance):

Naboo Part 1
-The new crawl is an improvement, if slightly too wordy.
-Obi-wan and Qui-gon’s conversation is a fairly good omission.
-Neimoidian cuts are often good, though subtitling them as well would be better.
-I would have liked to hear Sidious’s ‘make it legal’ line.
-I feel the absence of the Neimoidians discussing the Jedi via hologram. A single line retained from that would have been nice.
-The omission of the Gungan city is well done.
-The first 17 minutes feel slightly rushed, re-adding in a few of these lines would make it flow better.

Tatooine
-Jar Jar’s antics in the shop were a welcome surprise. The sequence of him examining a ‘folded’ pit droid to hitting the nose of a (presumably different) pit droid implies he deduced the functioning of the droid from his cursory examination. If there were a few more moments of intelligence from Jar Jar in this film it would go a long way to redeeming the character. This action, small as it is, makes me appreciate him.
-The Jar Jar and Sebulba scene is much improved, and the subtitles throughout are on point.
-Anakin’s line about the sandstorm feels strange.
-3PO is much improved.
-Some part of the balcony scene should have stayed.
-Podrace scene still feels too long. I remember the theatrical version having less of a startup sequence, so that would be the go-to version for me. Similarly, the final part of the race feels somewhat lacking without the commentators. Even the audio overlaid on the pods would be fine.
-‘pathetic life form’ line omission is a welcome choice.
-‘keep the suns from setting’ and the farewell to Shmi should have been retained.
-Probe droid destruction feels strange, since the same droid presumably informs Maul in the next scene. Either the Maul at his spaceship scene should be cut, or at least the part where the droid speaks to him.
-‘Tell them to take off’ didn’t need to go, since Anakin could have told them offscreen.

Coruscant
-‘One big city’ line is gold, and I will fight anyone who says otherwise.
-The Jedi council scene is definitely improved, the only thing I’d change is to retain one of Anakin’s statements near the end of the questioning.

Naboo Part 2
-New Gungan scene makes me forget that there ever was a Gungan city. This is not a bad thing.
-Anakin’s rush to help his friends needs some vocalization, perhaps ‘we’ve gotta do something, R2’, except as he is running up the steps to the fighter.
-There are some jarring moments during the restructured 4-way battle. ‘Everything’s overheated’ could have stayed.
-There are 3 scenes establishing that Anakin is to be trained as a Jedi. One of these could probably be cut without much trouble. It would be interesting if Qui-gon was dead before Obi-wan got to him after the battle, so that Obi-wan could have taken it upon himself to train Anakin.
-Love the reordered final shots of the film.

Hey guys, now that it’s only available on myspleen at the moment, if anyone can throw me a link to this, I would be glad:)

It’s dead on the spleen iirc. I can’t seed it, unfortunately.

Uh-oh, I’ll do something about that, but it might not be for a few days.

Seconding this, I saw it before on google drive and loved it, but forget to download it.

I really want to do this, partially so I can reshape their dialogue and don’t need to make so many cuts to them. My audio editing expertise is not quite up to snuff though. If someone could help me with this, it would be much appreciated.

I’d love to see these prequel edits. Is there a live link anywhere please? Spleen looks like it is not open to new members so can’t get on there 😦

So I may or may not be working on a V2 of this that is a little more conservative and includes some of the changes from Hal’s latest version of his edit.

Here’s something I’m experimenting with in order to retain the “short negotiations” joke: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1kVnqOCAJaq-XftsR1cNXaOqS8GEayAC4
Let me know if you guys think the lip sync is close enough. I also need to add some droid servo sound effects, although I’m not sure where I can source the audio (Qui-Gon’s original lines are mixed into all front audio channels in this scene). Please PM me or post here if you have a source!
