Revenge of the Sith (The New Canon Cut) [DRAFT AVAILABLE]
Time

I guess I should probably be more open about this; I haven’t been working on this at all since April/May.

I’m still sending out links to the workprint, (just sent a few today actually) but it’s looking less likely than ever that I’ll ever go back and “finish it.” I use quotations because for the most part, I think I’ve more or less done what I wanted to do. But the audiovisual quality, as well as an array of minor issues, really hold it back for me from being final final. It’s like 720p stereo, and color graded by an overzealous 22 year old.

I don’t know. I’m too burnt out now to revisit it, even to just walk back one line of added dialogue or fix a 3PO line overlapping itself. And I don’t want to lose another day of access to my computer to export a higher quality file that I’ll end up wanting to tweak again and so on and so forth. The way this project was set up is also a nightmare in the first place. I’ve grown so much as an editor since I started, and this was pretty early on in that journey. I’ve basically been fighting my past self to even get the more recent stuff out.

So, forever “unfinished” unless I change my mind when Star Wars Ep X comes around. But that’s not a huge deal because it was basically done anyway. I just wish that it was available in a way people could use my choices for their own edits. I really do.

I want to thank Hal, snooker, Mithrandir, Artan42, Octorox, sade1212, RogueLeader, IlFaneditore, Delpheas, etc, etc for contributing a lot to this project and helping me out. (God, I’m leaving out so many rn) And thanks to basically anyone who watched any of the thousand versions or showed interest. This doesn’t exist without all your contributions to the fanediting community in the first place. Sorry I couldn’t keep loving Star Wars.

I actually did do some work on Obi-Wan and Padme, particularly with these two clips:

Obi-Wan doesn’t want to kill Anakin

Pre-duel confrontation

It’s nowhere near as much as I did with Anakin, but their motivations in the third act are pretty fundamentally changed from the theatrical. It’s a reversal: Padme is the one who stands up to Anakin, while Obi-Wan is whose reluctant and remorseful. I don’t know if that’s what you meant, but I do think that lines up a bit more with the OT.

Last web series/tv show seen

The Last Kingdom on Netflix! It’s super addicting. It has some problems but is one of those rare cases for me where the issues are eclipsed entirely by how fun it is. It moves very fast and relies on an almost perfect/universally loved protagonist, but it’s hard not to be invested in spite of all that. I’d say the condensed plot and character development are almost an asset because some of it wouldn’t land as well if we were allowed to stew on it for more than an episode.

Charming, if not shallow characters - but all very interesting in their own right - placed into wildly entertaining plotlines. I like it.

Going away? Post so here!

I’ll miss seeing your lovely posts snooker! You were one of the nicest most supportive members here, and I found your sensibilities regarding the franchise refreshing in contrast to a lot of other SW fans.

While we’re at it, I feel like I’ve been in the same boat as snooker for a while now - I just don’t have the willpower to not check this site as part of some boredom autopilot. I haven’t really updated my edits in while because I’m just so burnt out on Star Wars. I pretty much shitpost to make myself feel involved, but I can’t say I really am. If it weren’t for people waiting on my finished edits to use in their own projects I’d probably be gone by now too lmao.

I don’t know why punk rock music is so popular. It’s all the same tempo, same notes, same chords, and in the case of the Sex Pistols in particular, they only had the most basic understanding of how to play musical instruments.

Seriously, why is there so much hype around such a rudimentary type of music?

It’s cathartic I guess. Like, ideally it’s the musical[sic] equivalent of letting out some anger and pretty much all of it out on the instruments. It’ll sound like it. That’s what’s fun about it, but also lends itself to lyrical subject matter that would sound odd in other genres.

I’m pretty much down for any genre of music tbh, they all have their place and purpose that other sounds won’t. I wouldn’t listen to R&B to get hyped up, for example. And you can’t hip or hop to classical music.

I 100% believed he was trying to tell Rey he loved her and was shocked to find people read it differently. I may not have picked up on Stormpilot, but Finn’s simp act is hard to miss. Why else would he rush over to the Death Star ruins?

That subplot is basically jealous Han thinks Leia loves Luke in ROTJ lmao

I don’t know, if Finn’s simp act is supposedly telegraphing a romance, then all of the Finn/Poe stuff has more weight, because it’s more overt than that little un-reciprocated crush. But I digress.

Look, I’m not opposed to Stormpilot, but at the end of the day I never picked up on any signs, and I say this as a Reylo fan. Maybe I’m just too straight to ever pick up on gay hints. Harley and Ivy seemed outta nowhere to me in Harley Quinn so…

I don’t think you have to be gay to feel any of that tension bro. xP
