Star Wars Episode I: Cloak Of Deception (Finished!)
Time

I’m definitely interested in seeing how this new version of Ep 1 turns out. I enjoyed the previous version quite alot, but I agree with previous comments that it’s not quite as perfect as your Ep 2 edit, which shocked me with how well it converted such an unenjoyable movie into such an enjoyable movie (however, I can’t comment on your Ep 3 edit because I refuse to accept the loss of Yoda vs. Palps).

Ah, I see.
Are you wanting to work from the original 420p version, or are you waiting on the new HD version?

Whatever somebody offers as best quality available - I know there is no HD version yet, but there is poasibly an upconverted version. All I have is a dvd - still waiting on an mp4 link if anyone has. 😃

There’s one on fanedit.info, but I don’t know what the quality of it is.

I’d very much prefer that people with these skills tried to improve stuff that really needs improving, like the Jabba and Solo scene, some of the mattes or even the deleted scenes.

The idea of seeing it updated in the film itself has me absolutely giddy with anticipation.

I like that idea too, but the execution here is terrible.
Technically amazing, but it doesn’t fit the look, lighting, cinematography, musical score, or even characters of the rest of the movie.

I don’t necessarily disagree that it sticks out, but none of that really bothers me compared to how much the original fight scene bothers me (especially with OP’s cleaned up version). I just have way too much satisfaction watching the new fight scene to even begin to care about the negligible feeling of incongruity I get from it.

They probably disagree with you about what really needs improving.

Personally, I’ve always felt that the Obi-wan/Vader fight was the only part of the trilogy that straight up fails to live up to modern standards. The idea of seeing it updated in the film itself has me absolutely giddy with anticipation.

It’s not about confusion, it’s about cohesiveness. I agree with ForceGhostRecon, Maul sticks out like a sore thumb because he prevents the movies from being cohesive in their own right. It’s like if Tarkin suddenly appeared alive again in RotJ with no explanation, and then I told you “Oh, don’t worry, there’s a comic book where he gets pulled off the Death Star at the last second by someone using the World Between Worlds”. Doesn’t matter if it’s explained somewhere else, it still breaks the cohesion of the movies.

I’d still argue the cohesiveness with overall canon is more important. It’s what makes Star Wars special, and what makes the MCU frustrating when the movies ignore all the shows they claim to be canon. My mother, who is only a casual SW fan at best, had no clue about Maul being alive in a cartoon but was excited to see him at the end of Solo. I understand it’s not for everybody. Still looking forward to this Vader bit.

I personally prefer the MCU approach of ignoring direct ties to the shows and other supplementary material. If I do a marathon of the MCU with my friends and family, I know it can stand on its own.

Also I don’t see how it’s “what makes Star Wars special”, when the Star Wars movies had no regard for supplementary material before the Disney buyout. Was Star Wars not special back then?

I’m still confused on why there are still people confused with characters coming back. It happens so often in everything that I don’t really need to be told how somebody came back anymore. I could go into a whole story, but I support your Vader work and I hope to see it finished!

Revenge of the Sith: Rebalanced - <em>Version 1.4 Released! IFDB Approved!</em>
Time

This sounds like exactly the kind of edit for Ep 3 that I’ve been looking for. I felt like the Hal9000 cut went a bit overboard, so I’d love to see how you handled things. Think you could send me a link?

Edit: Although I do have one concern. Removing all references to the “Chosen One” makes this edit mesh poorly with edits of Ep 1 that include references to the Chosen One (including the Hal9000 edit). Did you ever do your own edit of the previous episodes?
