Revenge of the Sith - Ultimate Cut (Released)
Time

Alright, so I know what you are thinking: it’s another one of these CW-ROTS supercuts.

What sets this one apart?

It has:

-New crawl and custom opening shot

  • All finished deleted scenes reinserted.

  • Clone Wars 2003 Coruscant invasion inserted with Clone and Grievous lines replaced (edited to match canon).

  • Fallen Order added to Order 66 montage

  • New Ending montage.

  • Most importantly of all, decent audio transitions?

Not convinced? Here some notable clips:

Ending:

Order 66:

Now, this edit is not for everyone as its a bit overkill with basically EVERYTHING added in. However, I tried my best to make all it as smooth as possible without disrupting canon.

Special thanks to lordrogersmith for some grievous and clone lines and Hal 9000 for the deleted scene upscales.

PM me for the link.

The Clone Wars Arc Edits [OPINIONS NEEDED] (a WIP)
Time

I don’t hate the malevolence arc or anything, but it’s mostly an inconsequential arc. Domino squad sets up key characters later in the show and has 99’s story, which is considered by the majority of the fanbase to be some of CW’s finest work. Personally, I would also include the Slavers arc and the Obi-Wan undercover arc because of the excellent character work, but those are more optional.

The Last Jedi: The De-Feminized Fanedit
Time

Here’s the description pulled straight out of the pirate bay:

Basically The Last Jedi minus Girlz Powah and other silly stuff.

It would probably be easier to make a list of things that were kept instead of things that were changed. Hardly any scene got away without cuts.

The resulting movie is (wait for it …) 46 minutes long.

Yeah I know, it’s not ideal. It’s made from a CAM source (the most recent HDTC one with the Asian hard subs, which is pretty watchable). It has issues. But it had to be done.

You will probably enjoy it most when you view it less as a blockbuster movie and more as some kind of episode from some non-existent mediocre Star Wars series.

Here’s a short rundown of changes (spoilers! full list in description.txt):

  • No whiny/reluctant/murderous psycho Luke.
  • NO HALDO! She simply doesn’t exist. Her whole subplot doesn’t exist. The Kamikaze is carried out by Poe. ( = Poe dies.)
  • Leia never scolds, questions nor demotes Poe.
  • Lea dies. Kylo kills her.
  • Kylo is more badass and much less conflicted and volatile.
  • Kylo takes on more of Snoke’s guards, Rey struggles with a single one.
  • No bomber heroism by china girl in the beginning.
  • No Canto Bight.
  • No superpowered Rey.
  • Luke is not a semi-force-ghost and is smashed by the first laser cannon shot. (sorry, I just had to!)
  • Phasma is finished after the first blow by Finn. (Women are naturally weaker than men, she isn’t force-sensitive, and we know nothing about any exo-skeleton in her suit)
  • Asian chick speaks less, doesn’t bully Finn, Finn doesn’t try to escape, she is never formally introduced. She is just there and occasionally smiles at Finn or screams “Finn!”. She has no sister. Serves her right for all the heinous stuff she did.
  • Lots of little cuts reducing the number of female facial shots. Too many to count. (Pun intended.)
  • Quite a few scenes rearranged so that the flow of the shortened movie is still somewhat coherent.

Obviously it’s far from perfect. The source is not even on DVD-level. Some of the technical edits were slacked because why not, it’s a CAM source (e.g. some masks and Snoke disappearing). Sometimes there’s an extreme zoom despite the mediocre quality. There are plotholes and continuity errors and some cuts are not as smooth as they should be, especially audio transition-wise. But for what it’s worth, it can now at least be viewed without feeling nauseaus about most of the terrible big and small decisions they made in this film. Also, at least the intro sequence is now very watchable and actually much cooler without all of Leia’s nitpicking. Now it’s all one united Resistance fighting without inner conflict and that’s much more satisfying to watch. Due to the extreme shortening, the whole movie is much more fast-paced now, at times unfortuantely also rushed due to a lack of usable filler footage

The Last Jedi : a Fan Edit <strong>Ideas</strong> thread
Time

I would suggest cutting the Fathier chase entirely and go through Canto Bight as soon as possible to improve the pacing. We could cut straight from the other plots to DJ picking up Finn/rose. I’m debating whether or not the scene where Rose explaining her past should be kept though, but one thing is for certain, remove the kiss.

As for the Leia scene, I liked the concept, But I think it would be far better if she traveled a shorter distance. Would require some audio work, but remove most of the shots of her flying. Just the shots of her moving her hand and opening her eyes, and then almost immediately to her reaching the bridge.

Also remove the “reach out” joke, BB-8 slot machine, and “Hold the line.”
