    I absolutely loved this edit and I think it might be my all-time favorite.  

    I haven't seen anyone point out any flaws in R2's subtitles but I'm pretty sure when R2 is on Dagobah when he says "area" it's spelled incorrectly.

Yeah, some reported typos but did not point specific ones. "Aera..." damn. lol

Maybe I should have this edit also corrected by Ripplin like the last one ;)

 

Thanks, glad you liked it.

This is an incredible piece of work. For me possibly the best fanedit I have ever seen. So inventive, so funny, at least 4 or 5 moments of pure genius.

I won't get into spoiler specifics, but seriously, you need to watch this!

    This sounds like a very interesting edit. Congrats on completing it. I'm looking forward to seeing it soon.

     Getting ESB and ROTJ into 135 minutes is quite a feat.

     This might give you a great base for a future edit.

      ANH and ESB into 135, ending with a cliffhanger at cloud city?

      ROTJ and the PT into 135 for a saga duology?

      Could the PT be cut down to about 67 minutes (TG style) and still be coherent?

      The second ep might begin with the crawl explaining that the problem at Cloud city and they found a new threat and then a shot of an SD and the SSD and the rescue of Luke and a quick shot of the new hand, then Vader at the DS followed by a quick entrance by the droids or Leia creeping up to free Han or Luke mysteriously walking into the place. To save alot of time, maybe Luke's mind trick does work on Jabba and the Dialogue could be changed to something like " FOOL! We have to let them go!". Alternatively, it doesn't work,  Luke is dropped through the trap door (skip the Rancor) and is simply brought back up to face Jabba with Han and a shortened Sarlac sequence.

       Then the Luke at Ben's hut thing? Luke and Ben sit down to chat and we are launched into a retrospective back to the PT sequence of about 67 minutes and then back to the gang at the fleet to prepare DS attack?

       It would be very difficult to pull-off in a nearly seamless way but it would be great fun to watch the entire saga in two reasonable action-adventure episodes over two evenings.

       Anyway, just a thought. I love these great edit concepts!

       Thanks for the great efforts! :)

Thanks for the very nice comments people.

And thejediknightthusezni: with those two "War of the Stars" edits plus my whole saga as silent short movies (the 30's serial editions) I think I worked enough with the Star Wars universe for now, lol. Cool brainstorming though.

I think now I'll make those little experimental movies I always wanted to do ;)

This looks like a real treat. I'll hopefully be able to watch it today. 

PM me for links to my edits; apparently, some feel shy about this.

Part 1 is fun, but part 2 is a lot better.

Yeah, don't know yet why exactly,  but .info is down for now.

PM me if you're interested in this edit. (I'm not at home everyday so could take 24 or 48 h before I send you what you want)

When I found out that this wasn't going to be a grindhouse edit, I very nearly didn't bother to download and watch it. I really liked the grindhouse treatment in part 1, and just felt that another ESB/ROTJ fanedit using higher-quality sources was sorta pointless.

Man, am I ever happy that I changed my mind and gave part 2 a chance. This was one of the most enjoyable fanedits I've ever seen. Together with part 1, these are "must see" edits for fanedit aficionados in my opinion. As someone said (don't remember who), you can conceive of part 1 as a low-budget grindhouse flick that enjoys unexpected success, leading to a higher budget and mainstream distribution for the sequel.

Kudos, TMBTM; you've outdone yourself. Truly an entertaining edit, and one that I'm sure I'll watch again.

This was my exact original thought, but decided I would watch it anyway, you know...just in case.

 

Will get to it eventually...

But after seeing the first one and Alien-Ate, I should have just known better and trusted that it would be a great edit! I have yet to check out Jaws and the silent Star Wars edits.

Hey, I offered while you were still working on it, but you didn't say anything. ;) Perhaps I should have e-mailed you about it. Oh well.

Another was Ian McDiarmind. Oops!

Anyway, I've spoken about this more over at FE, including a short review and a rating. What people are saying about it over here is also correct; you need to see it, people! :)

And..... SHIT!!!

I think I'll remade the DVD just for this, because that sucks.

Will also correct typos errors.  So if you spot some other, feel free to PM me Ripplin .

This edit works from title to final edit.  Great example to show how fan edits are not just about messing with whats been, but creating what hasn't existed.  Lots of moments which make you smile seeing how the familiar material can tell a new tale.  Not just short gags and omages but comprehensive re-storytelling, taking a theme, playing it up and expanding it to it's logical conclusion thru the manipulation of multiple scenes and sources.  In many ways the main story tread which is played up in 'The Future in Motion' could very well have occurred in the real movie.  Luke's tale does follow the trend set up in the the first War of the Stars, so although not completely grindhoused, tFiM is a great continuation.  And the level of skill involved shows that TMBTM's craft is continuing to expand.  Enjoyed 'The Future in Motion immensely.

I laughed out loud at the first 'How typical' line.
