The Last Jedi: Legendary (Released)

Thanks Hal!!! Superior to the theatrial cut by at least 12 parsecs. Just cannot thank you enough, you took out enough small bad stuff it made the rest of my gripes tolerable. I really enjoyed this canto bight was short and sweet.

If I could magically erase the porgs and do something about luke tossing his saber, (I like the way ortega is handling that) and much of the bb8 and phasma schtic. But for your stated pourpose of not radically editing it but making It a better movie you succeeded. Well done. A gold star to you and everyone involved in this project.

Star Wars: A Galaxy Betrayed – A 3-in-1 edit of the prequels - Released

Yes botias agbeditor have a point about grevious being mentioned alot, it could be fixed by making newt gunnery the nemodian boss general grevious. Or maybe even dooku.
And as to a separate point I agree that dooku also back flips too much and has corny lines that need removed. It would have almost made sense if dooku was a grey jedi and left the order because he was actually fighting sidious, but I believe that would be impossible to pull off successfully, I’ll think more on that point.

I agree with botias on every point and would like to add a couple of other points
1 the jedi should do no more than a backflip or anything in their fights it just doesn’t jive with the OT loke when obiwan jumps to the upper platform in the maul fight.
2 It is my dream that The clones should never be called clones. The clones should be the droid army, it could be set up in the crawl or in subtitles of the nemodians after that it fits with the "we don’t serve their kind in ep iv

Dooku and greivous are both terrible characters. You kinda have to have dooku I guess, but I could do without grevious entirely.

This is still the best pt fanedit I have seen, but it could be improved upon.

SOLO: A Star Wars Story - Fan Edit Ideas Thread
Time

Finally saw it here’s my first impression cut keep list

I’m a crawl guy, using the intro text as a base it will be easy. Then a pan down from crawl through shipyards it will have to be fashiond by an expert but we have those around cut the solo banner

I liked this movie, humor was spot on except L3 could use a complete redub, and cut down on Droids mutant on kessel, slaves get freed start to riot, that’s enough

Solo gets his name, fine with me, I thought it worked. Remove imperial march

Trim on droid cage fights

Has to be a way to get rid of maul what we’re they thinking?

Someone said chewie was subtitled, huh? I didn’t even notice, if that is the case be rid of that

Han shoots first, good!
Hans a good guy, thats fine we know
Willow of good has a line, I’m happy for him but I recognized him right off, takes me out of the movie
Lando does love L3, eh ok

Biggest gripe beside Maul is the music, only at times just didn’t work for me

Thought this was better than any of the prequels or sequels, I found myself worried about the characters. Except maul it could have been a talking turd and I would have been happier they made Ron do it right? They must have right?

Thanks Ron howard maybe you should start an account here!

The Last Jedi- Full Movie Re-Edit
Time

I have only watched a couple of his videos and he may be “making the most of it” but as a radical dreamer myself I find some of his ideas interesting, I like his music choices rant, I I think he may have saved the luke sabers toss which is one of my most hated scenes since jar jar nominated palpatine. What if he does get convincing voice actors? Might be good stuff in there, I guess time will tell, at least you can tell he is putting in thought and effort. My 2 cents

Have you ever considered making it so that Luke simply hands Rey the lightsaber back (using reversed footage) and storms off? The way Luke tosses the lightsaber in the movie is obviously played off to be some sort of joke in a very serious moment.

I believe Ivan Ortega’s edit does this.

Just watched the ortega Clip it’s Hella Good, I think it could be better if it used tfa footage of rey walking up (like how dig mod cut it off tfa) but is definetly better than the sabers toss, starts the movie on the wrong foot

Star Wars: Legacy of the Jedi (A The Last JediT) (WIP)

Yes to everything except
Rey snapping, I thought it was neat, maybe on second watch it’s. Corny?
Ship in the sun as Luke disappears? Don’t know what your talking about.

Maybe you can consider ending tfa with the falcon leaving and start tlj with the end of tfa then you can have a larger space of time pass instead of it seeming immediately after tfa

  • Complete disregard of Vader as a character after he had already been set up in TFA as a major influencer and inspiration to Kylo. After a few mean words from Snoke, Kylo smashes his helmet to pieces, symbolically smashing his obsessed Vader-like aspirations and everything that had been set up in the previous movie. Trying to delete Vader from a Skywalker-saga SW movie is like trying to delete Hitler from a WWII documentary. Can’t you wait until you get you start your own non-Skywalker SW trilogy, Rian?

  • General Hux was set up, almost literally, as a young ascendant Hitler in TFA. Now he is the butt of silly tone-deaf jokes? I thought Kathleen Kennedy was supposed to be supervising Rian?

  • Snoke’s comment about the Dark in Rey and the Light

  • Kylo, Yoda, and Luke all talked about destroying the past. I didn’t really mind this at all until I realized the second, much deeper meaning of this dialog was that Rian Johnson was ACTUALLY COMMENTING ABOUT THE PAST STAR WARS MOVIES THEMSELVES WITHIN THE MOVIE HE WAS COMMISSIONED TO DIRECT! He was literally talking about destroying all the Star Wars tropes that came before HIS movie.
    The movie almost feels like Rian Johnson hates J.J. Abrams. “Oh you created Poe to be a hero, you think Snoke should be an important character, you want Rey’s bloodlines to be important, you probably wanted Luke to be a more heroic character, you wanted Vader’s presence to be felt through his inspiration of Kylo? Well I am going to kill the past because this is MY movie! Oh… And I bet you thought the Knights of Ren was a cool idea too. Well, fuck you about that too.”

I do think there is a good Star Wars movie in there somewhere utilizing TLJ footage as a rough cut.

I agree with your long post and these couple paragraphs nail it

Only seen it once but…
My initial reaction is something like unnnnhhhhhhhhhhh…

Cut Finn and rose. And Bennie the bull with them. Finn can wake up at the end in his bacta bag and missed the whole thing. And super leia. Uhhh kill her or atleast dhe wake up in the hospital. And ultra fake yoda. And the indeginous muppets. Snoke looks Hella fake too. Cut the greyhound horses and the bb-8 antics kids decoder rings poe being an ass as much as possible cut the whole maz scene, code breaker tracking through lights peed uhhhhhhh… stop the movie from jumping everywhere. I am tired and will come back with my second viewing cutlist. Please Darth mickey give us deleted scenes, your our only hope.

In what way I should watch a Star Wars Marathon?
Time

Star wars despecialized
Empire despecialized or esb-R
I-III a galaxy betrayed (optional)
Rouge one digmod edit (rise of the rebellion)
Return of the Jedi despecialized (until ady finishes rotj-r)
The force awakens edit by Hal and the gang
Your favorite pirate rip of last Jedi

My logic is superior you might as well erase all other posts. This IS the correct viewing order.

Or like frink said

Thanks Frank for the advise on properly posting pictures if I can wrap my tiny brain around it I will edit my first post. And if frinks is Frank’s sock thank you both.
