ZigZig's THE PHANTOM MENACE Theatrical reconstruction 1080p – V1.0 work in progress
Time

I wish I would’ve seen it in 3D when it was rereleased.

I saw the 3D version opening day. The theater was packed and the crowd cheered when the 3D opening crawl started. First time I ever saw an audience cheer for a movie. I also met an actual Star Wars fan my age (a rarity for me). We sat next to each other and had fun pointing out every easter egg. The 3D was also done rather good from my recollection.

It’s one of the fondest memories I have.

Count me in as someone interested in acquiring the download link. 😃

I’m planning to do a Star Wars countdown with friends over the months. The only theatrical cut I have of this is an old VHS widescreen copy, but if there’s a chance to get this in a quality relative to LD or HD…

Palpatine voice: I look forward to watching it with great interest.

Zig Zig uploaded a composite HDTV relative to LD on spleen that you might want to check out.

PS, I also wanna copy. Pretty please, sugar on top?

How you pictured Anakin pre-PT

He is not a good writer, the guy who helped write Empire was.

IMHO George can craft dialogue and story that is enjoyable in every direction; stories that are either hilarious or incredibly deep and thought-provoking depending on how you look at it. In many ways, his writing surpasses Laurence Kasdan’s. Don’t assume I’m joking either, this is genuinely my opinion.

Lucasfilm's movie plans post Ep. IX

I notice Harley Quinn is your avatar here. I take it you’re a Batman fan, right? So, is Batman really Batman without Bob Kane and Bill Finger? Is Paul Dini eligible to write Batman stories and whatnot? So Rian Johnson should be eligible to write a Star Wars film, no?

Batman is a franchise that has undergone many reboots and iterations that divulge significantly from the source material. Any writer can write a Star Wars movie, but they won’t be true continuations of Lucas’s core story. While I would like to believe that Star Wars could be different from other franchises and their multiple iterations, it really isn’t. So under that logic, there isn’t an issue with a George Lucas Sequel Trilogy being made after this one wraps up.

Ranking the Star Wars films

Fair enough reasons Jesta and good on you for ranking it as such in a place called OT.com 😛

I honestly came here for the preservation and fan-edit side, not to circle jerk about the Original Trilogy. I’m not going to deny that the OT are superior to the PT in a common sense, but damn, those films are necessary IMHO to tell the complete story; the 6 part tragedy and redemption of Anakin Skywalker. Even if the OT wasn’t marketed to be apart if that story from the beginning, it’s how I view them.

Here is my completely unnecessary breakdown of the Star Wars films:

The PT is about how society and institutions can corrupt and influence the individual

The OT is about how an individual can redeem and influence the individual

The George Lucas ST was going to be about how the soul controls and influences the individual

I would love to see what George had (or has, someone please make George Lucas’s ST with the remaining OT cast) planned for the ST, yes Midichlorians and all.

Nice sig as well 😄

Thanks! The dictionary hasn’t been wrong so far!

Not sure about the top half of your list (mostly just TPM ranking anywhere above the OT) but I definitely like your bottom half LOL!

It’s the film I always go back and watch, the music, the visuals, the fight scenes, the worldbuilding, the lore, anything with Qui-Gon Ginn. I have trouble watching every Star Wars film in one sitting except The Phantom Menace, I would be lying if I said I didn’t like the film more than the OT.

Attack of the Clone is a blast too, although that’s because it’s fucking hilarious. I was with a friend and it was his first time watching AOTC, we laughed so hard I’d thought we’d bust a gut. I just can’t take that film seriously, but what it sets up lore wise is amazing.
