Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Nerd Edit (* unfinished project *)

If I were you I would cut the "Roger Roger" during the battle. If there is a control ship controlling the droids then voice communication is needed only for interacting with people and droids who are not part of the droid army.

Only one Podrace lap. Most of all three laps will be included, but the scenes of them going threw the start\finish lines will be cut.

Please tell me that you are cutting out the two-headed commentator.

Jabba the Hutt will not be seen. Why? Because people, including myself, had to wait a long time to finally see what Jabba looked like in ROTJ. He was mentioned in ANH and TESB, but the mystery of what he looked like remained until we saw him. So he won't be seen at all in my edit.

Hear hear!

Well, for the "Roger roger", I was going to (1) keep the shot but mute the line and restore the music, or (2) move it some where in the hangar battle.

The 2-headed alien will and will not be cut. What I mean is that he will be heard saying some lines, like "anakin is forced on to the service ramp" and "looks like some tusken raiders...". The alien is suppose to be comic-relief, and it is, to an extent. Some lines like "that has got to hurt" and "the crowd goes nuts" are not needed.

I actually reconsidered my decision of cutting out Jabba. So I'll be inserting him back in.

So I've done some calculating with the DVD version today, and I'll be able to cut off around 30 minutes so far. This is mostly the Jar Jar and Gungan scenes. The Gungan plot is going to be completely removed.

I haven't started editing the Blu-ray version. That's the version I'll be using because it basically has some of what I want fixed.

Episode III: Revenge of the Ridiculousness

What you should do for the opening is some Star Fox 64 things. This is a video I found that shows it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJom15pCF6c. It combines ROYJ with Star Fox 64 for the Battle Of Endor. Doing something like this for the beginning might be great.

All you have to do is edit the sound effects and dialogue of SF64 to match the movie, or edit the movie to match the sound effects and dialogue of SF64

Here's a few ideas of my own:

  1. Odd Ball becomes Skippy the Annoying Frog
  2. Fox becomes Anakin
  3. Falcon becomes Obi-Wan

STAR WARS: EP V &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>AVAILABLE NOW</strong>
Time

Ah, I see. I've never seen that one before. It would be nice to see K-3PO have his own scene. Well, when I say "scene" I don't mean to add in a pointless few seconds of the droid. I mean to see K-3PO walking around Echo Base doing stuff with a little dialogue here and there. Not loud dialogue, but just some extra background noise to give Echo Base an even bigger atmosphere. Know what I mean?

The shot of the shuttle leaving bespin and flying towrds the executor does not mess up the music...

The other 2 shots Boarding and getting off on the deathstar are horrible, ridiculous and mess up the music entirely.

We all agree with you, but there is a way to edit the music and not have it sound all weird and full of bad cuts.

What's a Kyrat dragon anyway ?

This is a Kyrat Dragon:

You know that skeleton that C-3PO walks past? That's the fossil of a Kyrat Dragon.

 

Bobocop said:

If Lucas hadn't sold the films to Disney, would the next release have replaced the Krayt Dragon call with the sound Jar-Jar makes before diving iinto the water in TPM?

Oh, I'd LOVE to see that! (sarcasm)

It's 'should have'...NOT 'should of '.

 

Anyway, the scene should have had Vader mumbling under his breath, with a few curse words slipping out.

Thanks for correcting me. I've changed it to the correct structure.

Now for Vader's curse words. Vader could have said "Bring my mother-f@%$ing shuttle. Alert the crew of my f#%@ing Star Destroyer to get their asses together and prepare for my goddamn arrival." LOL. And now imagine Vader saying, "No. I am your damn father! The midi-chlorians blood tests prove it. Now stop playing on that damn windpipe and go study your goddamn history."

Episode III: Revenge of the Ridiculousness
Time

Here's a few ideas i just thought of:

  1. When Anakin is hanging on for his life in the elevator shaft, the droids say something like "He has the coffee" and "I knew it". When the droids are about to get crushed by the elevator, they say "COFFEE!!!"
  2. When Anakin is crashing the ship, the dialogue between him and Obi-Wan should be as follows: "Now this is podracing" (Anakin - EPI), "come to your senses!" (Obi-Wan - EPII), "Don't make me kill you." (Anakin - EPIII), "Oh dear" (Obi-Wan - EPII)
  3.  When Padme is giving birth, add more sound to her. These can be found across the internet, on YouTube, and in plenty of movies.
  4. Add he deleted scene of Yoda laning on Dagobah, but combine different Yoda dialogue to make him say "Oh shit."
  5. Lower the pitch of Grievous's voice.
  6. When Anakin is flying the flagship, add in the Jaive-speaking Soul brothers from Airplane, but with some new subtitles. Also add the scene where the girl says that they lost the engines, and the coffee is gone, and everybdy goes crazy.

A few (ridiculous) audio changes and a (ridiculous) boulder?  Please.  It's not even on the same order of magnitude as dinosaurs roaming Mos Eisley and CGI Jabba.  It's like Lucasfilm has relegated the task of destroying film history to its interns.

Why some people were apparently cool with Jedi Rocks but were suddenly up in arms about Vader's "Nooo" was always kinda baffling to me.  If I knew anyone who walked out of the theatre in 1997 happy, I'd have no hesitation recommending the Blu-rays to them.

Yes. I think that Lucas has been intent on destroying his films. Maybe the next Special Edition will have a bunch of Jawas and Dinosaurs walking around the Death Star. I would love to see that. (that sentence is sarcastic.)

Jedi Rocks is another different matter. I like the song, only the song and not the whole animated scene, for one reason: the song is catchy. But I don't get why Lucas just didn't keep the Lapti Nek song and just replace the puppets with CGI characters. I admit that the puppet Sy Nootles always moved a little funny.

Now, the Blu-ray is fine, but there's just a few things I hate. Besides the bigger Jabba door, the "No", and a few other things, I hate the ship boxes. If you don't know what I'm talking about, put in BD IV and go to where the Falcon takes off from Tatooine. Watch the Star Destroyers carefully and you'll see some weird brown areas. I hate those. They're in every shot of a ship.

These boxes were not in the original release VHS's, they're not in the SE's, and they're not in the original release DVD's from 2004. If they were in the original version, I could understand that, all the limits of technology could not erase them.

What should have happened in the Special Editions is this: Vader says "Bring my shuttle", then we see the SE shot of Vader walking to the ship, be the ship is not stationary, it's starting to land as Vader is walking. This way, the music is not really looped in a funny was and Vader still sounds pissed off.

Now for the shots of the shuttle going to the Star Destroyer and Vader leaving the shuttle, these shots should have just been added to the end of Vader walking to the landing shuttle.

Your Favorite And Least Favorite Special Edition Changes

Nothing has so far benefited ROTJ. Every single change has little or no redeeming value. The new closing music is okay but the glimpse of other planets makes me wonder if Luke tweeted the Emperor's death or something because those celebrations sure came together quickly. Hayden as Anakin's ghosts, Jedi Rocks, "No... Noooooooooo!", they're all retarded.

I think Lucas added Vader saying "No" to connect with the (rather hysterical) "No" from Episode III. But what Lucas doesn't realize is that you don't need Vader to say anything before he grabs he Emperor. When he grabs the Emperor, Vader is already silently saying "No."
