The Last Jedi - Clean cut edition
Time

Now that I’ve seen both v4 and the new v6, I’d like to give my thoughts. Version 4 is amazing, and probably the preferred way I’d watch the movie. Version 6 is better in concept, given that Holdo has no arc in this cut, but the terrible effects work to insert Ackbar completely takes me out of the movie. Other than that, this is one of my favorite fan edits ever.

Fanedit Request Thread
Time

I made this thread because I noticed that the users who created many interesting edits have stopped posting, and have probably just abandoned the site. I also wanted to give people who sign up just to ask for fanedits a place to put their requests. So if you want to ask for a fanedit, put your request here.

I’ll start. I really want to see darthrush’s edits of ROTJ, TFA and TLJ, but he hasn’t posted since November. Does anyone have them?

The Worst Scene/Sequence in Any Star Wars Film
Time

I can’t decide on the worst scene in the saga, so I’ll do one for each film.

Star Wars: Special Edition Mos Eisley. Completely cluttered with CGI comic relief.
The Empire Strikes Back: The giant worm cave. Serves no purpose story-wise.
Return of the Jedi: Jedi Rocks. Made me want to rip my eyes out and jam them into my ears.
The Phantom Menace: The podrace. Even more CGI comic relief.
Attack of the Clones: Battle droid Threepio. Would be okay if he didn’t spout bad puns constantly.
Revenge of the Sith: The opening scene. Cheesy and full of terrible comedy.
The Force Awakens: The battle above Starkiller Base. A lazy rehash of Star Wars’ climax.
Rogue One: Bor Gullet. Weird for the sake of being weird.
The Last Jedi: The ships running out of fuel. Only happens because they couldn’t rip off ESB without it.
Solo: Han getting his last name from an Imperial Officer. Contrived and pointless.

When did you realize that George Lucas was full of it

I completely stopped believing in George when I found out that he edited midichlorians into The Making of Star Wars. If he can just change history like that, I don’t trust a word he says.

Are you serious! Do you have a time stamp for the offending piece?

It would seem then that even the original official documentaries need preserving as protection against revisionist George 😕

I meant the book by Rinzler. There’s a thread about it somewhere.

What is your personal canon?
Time

Since I posted my movie rankings, might as well post my canon too.

-The EU origin story for the Old Republic
-Darth Plagueis
-Attack of the Clones
-2003 Clone Wars
-Revenge of the Sith
-Star Wars
-Empire Strikes Back
-Return of the Jedi

That’s about it. Not much, but I haven’t read/seen that much. Not really sure whether EU or new canon is better for the stuff after ROTJ.

Star Wars: The Ford Awakens (Han Lives Edit)
Time

I think I have an idea of how to do the bridge scene in a natural way (although you’d need some FX shots)

The scene happens like normal up until Kylo drops his mask. Then we see close shots of him drawing his saber and obviously preparing to kill Han. Chewie notices and shoots Kylo with the crossbow. Kylo is blown across the bridge by the crossbow as he ignites the saber. Chewie sets off the explosives, and the rest happens like normal.

It’s still not perfect, but better than Chewie firing for no reason.

It’s nice to see a TLJ hater who doesn’t blow things out of proportion, personally attack Kathleen Kennedy or start namecalling the director. Lots of people, including one on this site, could learn from you. Then again, you’re new, so for all I know it could rapidly degenerate, but so far so good.

It won’t, I promise. I don’t blame Kathleen, Rian, or any one person for “ruining” the movie. I have the same opinion about people who blame Lucas for “ruining” the prequels. He made the franchise you love, show a little respect.

My personal (and probably controversial) ranking list:

  1. Star Wars: Just an overall fun adventure that works great on its own.
  2. The Empire Strikes Back: Great most of the time, but has some clunky dialogue and plot holes.
  3. Revenge of the Sith: Even more clunky dialogue, but when it’s good, it’s great.
  4. Return of the Jedi: Has some great moments, but mostly just tries to be kid-friendly.
  5. Rogue One: Not the plot I expected, but it takes the franchise in a great new direction.
  6. The Force Awakens: Tries to be a fun movie like Star Wars, but filled with cliches and plot holes.
  7. The Last Jedi: Ruins everything good about TFA with massive plot holes and “subverting expectations.”
  8. Solo: Tries to explain too many things at once, and ends up failing miserably.
  9. Attack of the Clones: One of the most boring Star Wars movies, and the plot is terrible.
  10. The Phantom Menace: Somehow manages to be both kid-friendly and dull.
  11. The Holiday Special: Why. Just why.

What do you mean by plot holes in TESB?

Stuff like:
How did they get the walkers on Hoth? There were only star destroyers, no transport ships.
How did Han get to Cloud City on sublight speed? Maybe stars are closer in the SW universe, but if so, why do they need lightspeed in the first place?
Why are the Rebel ships so slow in evacuating after the battle? There are still walkers that haven’t been destroyed, and Darth Vader himself has invaded the base.

Why is this controversial?

Because I ranked ROTS so highly. I like it much more than most people here, who hate all 3 prequels equally. Also, I like SW better than ESB. Most fans treat ESB like superhero fans treat The Dark Knight.
