Heya everyone,

Was looking for some critiques on Lando’s arrival. It’s definitely far from perfect. I have barely any remote form of editting skills. Wanted to give some bigger “feels” of the galaxy fleet arriving.

The shift in music at 1:10 is jarring, as is the faint image of Luke.

Instead of cutting back and forth between the cockpit shots and the sweeping shot of the fleet, just finish the shot of the fleet, then move onto the cockpit shots all back to back and it will flow much nicer.

Replace Chancellor Vilcham with Chancellor Valorum, so he can fail the Republic a second time because poetry or some shit.

How do you listen to Oingo Boingo and not know that it’s Danny Elfman singing?

Because I know him for his Batman music, which is instrumental. I didn’t know he even had a career in singing outside Nightmare Before Christmas until fairly recently. I was surprised to find a music site listing him (there were no other film composers except maybe Hans Zimmer).

  • Opening space battle to the tune of Take On Me.

  • Together Forever for the cringey balcony scene.

  • Plastic love playing faintly on the radio during one of the Jedi Council meetings.

  • The Psycho Soldier theme for the Grievous fight.

  • Never Surrender for that scene of Anakin and Padme looking off into the sunset from different parts of Coruscant.

  • The Bangles’ version of Hazy Shade of Winter for Palpatine’s Arrest.

  • Burning Heart for the Mustafar duel.

  • Weird Science for Vader’s reconstruction, with additional shots taken from the music video for it and Batman Forever to make Palpatine’s lab extra cooky.

  • The rest of the soundtrack (instrumentals) is taken from 80s Doctor Who.

  • Color regrade inspired by Joel Schumacher’s Batman films.

  • MTV logo in the bottom corner.

  • Slightly degraded VHS look. Not too overdone though.

  • Use next-generation hair simulation technology to increase everyone’s hair volume.

  • Deepfake 80s actors onto the existing ones.

And there we have it, Direct-to-Video Revenge of the Sith (1989). Unfortunately, there’s no room for Michael Jackson’s Jar Jar due to the character’s more or less absence from the film.

Is it possible to see that clip?

Ask TheAlaskanSandman. I’d rather not have to go through the trouble of reuploading it myself if it can be avoided.

I know this gets said jokingly in this thread a lot, but (other than the deepfakes joke) this would be a really cool comedic edit of ROTS and I would absolutely watch it.

I saved a link to the post so that I can make you this edit when I get around to fanediting again. This would be a simple ~1 hour project, aside from stuff like the hair I probably wouldn’t actually do. Then again, I’d actually have to host this thing somewhere. It also opens up a can of worms of similar edits for the other films. That post was more just me killing time sharing my playlist than anything else. Kinda tempted to do Palpy’s Weird Science though.

Wait, Oingo Boingo’s frontman is Danny Elfman?! I never knew!!

Okay, well I got a shiny because the romhack I played had specific “shiny spots”, unbeknownst to me when I started. The romhack was also the reason I got Mew. It’s called Ultraviolet if you’re interested. The music stopped working in the postgame though so I can hardly recommend it. I prefer the approach I took with HG/SS of just using the vanilla game with whatever cheats I need to get version exclusives or 999 rare candies to skip grinding for the Elite Four. Somehow across both games I never got around to catching Mewtwo. I just found out yesterday I still have my HG/SS save lying around so maybe it’s not too late. Gotta do the events too. Celebi and Arceus. As you can probably tell, I play the games emulated because I prefer having a fast-forward button in turn-based RPGs and just general practicality. Don’t feel like playing on my tiny 3DS screens. Then again, too screens on one monitor doesn’t look great, but hey, I’ve got some nifty anti-aliasing filters so that’s cool.

Replace the entire films with recordings of themselves someone took on their phone from the couch 5 m from the screen (shot vertically, of course).

For a while, I’ve been on the fence about saying this, but to heck with it.

During the scene where Padme reveals to Anakin that she’s preggers, intercut a short flashback of them doing the devil’s tango.

You jest but I legit have clip someone made here on the forum of a scene of them going at it in the Naboo villa in AotC. Of course it isn’t explicit or anything but you can tell what they’re doing.

Find YouTube Poops of every single scene in the saga and edit them all together in order into one single eighteen hour insanity cut.

No, silly, you’re supposed to play all nine films at once.

Change Palpatine’s scream while falling down the DSII spire to “Noooo!!”

Try “I’ll be back.”

Aunt Beru puts tiny CGI creatures in the food processor rather than vegetables.

Okay this one is golden. Tbh, it sounds like something that could legit happen in the prequels. In fact, if someone were to put together such a clip, I think I would include it in my edit of ANH.

This is one of those great worst ideas that if you told me straight-faced it was in one of the different Special Editions, I’d probably briefly believe it.

Well there we go, like I said, it sounds like something that could legit be in there.

ANH has a lot of “show, don’t tell” problems in regards to Luke’s piloting ability up until the trench run. I’m surprised nobody’s rendered a short sequence of the T16 Skyhopper zooming around Beggar’s Canyon to insert immediately before the theatrical introduction to Luke.

You’re not the first one to suggest this. The mockup here is to brief, but it could give you guys some ideas.

Nowadays if you released ANH a lot of crusty nerds would complain up and down about his piloting ability coming out of nowhere. But the truth is sometimes those details don’t need to be explained in exhausting detail. People can roll with a lot if a film is easy and breezy.

Technically not the same film, but pretty close.
