The Clone Wars: Refocused - A new holistic approach inspired by the Mandalorian [TWELVE EPISODES RELEASED (+watchlist for the remainder)]
Time

Great stuff. The trimming is smooth, the pacing is tight, and the narrative is clear. This’d be a great way to introduce TCW to my folks, as they’re not very interested in viewing all 120-something episodes haha.

Keep it up!

The Rise of Skywalker: Ascendant (Released)
Time

Outstanding!

I watched the 1080p ver. with a friend last night who’s not really into the editing game, and coming from two nerds who didn’t really like the theatrical, we were both very impressed. Even a minor change such as a vastly improved color grade, can push your enjoyment of a film that much more. Congrats to everyone involved in making this a worthy conclusion to the “Skywalker Saga.”

I don't think Revenge Of The Sith is as good as everyone says it is.
Time

Imo its the most engaging of the trilogy, but also the least interesting in story and especially art direction. The first half is pretty dry and confusing for a newbie, unless you tuned in for a short micro-series that aired on a kid’s network. Anakin’s turn feels like it was written in 5 minutes, too sudden and not gradual at all. Too much time was spent on the Grievous stuff as well as stupid filler stories leading up to this point. It really makes me wish TPM and most of AOTC weren’t such time-wasters. There are some standout moments that I legitimately love, but it’s not definitely not Star Wars, nor TESB.

Prequels or Sequels; Which do you prefer - and why?
Time

I really want to like the Sequels, but even with fan-efforts; it’s always hard to turn my brain off and have fun with (imo) such soulless films. The Prequels had their fair share of flaws, sure. But I can, at the very least, recognize them as Star Wars. A Star Wars that doesn’t rely on nostalgia, or attempts to push an agenda. It’s a shame…
