Chronologically Lost HD (Remaster of Mike Maloney's edit) (Released) <strong>SEND PM FOR LINKS, DON'T REPLY ON THREAD</strong>
Time

What are you doing concerning burnt in titles, credits, etc.? I left them in as the edit was primarily for my entertainment and I just ''watch around them" as I like to phrase it. The crash and post crash stuff is so much better when the storylines of the losties, talies and others are all integrated and playing out at the same time. It just seems cheap, oh, yeah, you’ve been watching this show about these people for a while now but HEY! there’s a bunch of people from the tail that survived. Let’s spend an hour talking about them and catch you up to speed, m’kay?
I think for me it’s episodes 10 & 11 that we get the crash, each one of mine ran about 2 hours and there’s 50 of them.

Are you integrating webisodes and deleted scenes? There’s a wiki with a timeline that is generally helpful for a project like this, my stumbling block on pass two was there is a scene in a later episode where Widmore is evicted from the island by Ben and I didn’t catch that, it’s just a quick little thing that I missed and…yeah, after months of work I’m done with this one as it is.

How are you handling the time lines in your chronological edit? I did a sd edit of this myself years ago, took two tries (pc died 4 seasons in on one try and no back up) and I cut it so Jack dies on the island, watches the plane fly overhead and then the entire alternate time line plays out as his near-death experience with the end being the group reunited (with all the scenes of him dying on the island excised as they were used for his island death scene).

Info: Vader vs. Kenobi Reimagined - A New Hope / &quot;Scene 38 Reimagined&quot; – Released
Time

I like it - I like it a lot.
Obi Wan moves pretty fast when he cuts down the cantina guys, this almost all works for me. I think it was really creative and just a lot of fun. The only part that really didn’t work for me was some of the dubbing of lines, sometimes less is more.

“Victim? Oh no that guy didn’t act like a victim…Douglas Jones moved like a cobra”

The Worst Scene/Sequence in Any Star Wars Film
Time

I always regarding the Obi Wan GG duel as being a cinematic refuge from a bad Steven Speilberg movie that was somehow spliced into Star Wars. I did a fanedit of RotS that totally eliminates every onscreen appearance of GG, he’s now an off screen McGuffin whose only purpose is to isolate Anakin so that Palpatine may have his evil ways with him. The much better birth of the rebellion scenes were added back in and the movie is in my opinion a vastly improved watch for the two changes.

Help: looking for... The Last Jedi edits - any good edits where Luke lives?
Time

It totally subverts your expectations, it would have been flipping brilliant.
IF Luke has to live, and he did for 7 and most of 8, having him die offscreen inbetween 8 and 9 reduces him to an old codger who got his way, he ran away and died alone on Achoo.
I am in a very small camp of less is more of the OT heros in the new movie. Now if they’d have only done something about a more compelling collection of enemies instead of Kylo Stimpy, Emperor Redshirt and Captain Kenny Phasma. The weakest part of the new movies isn’t SJW’s, it isn’t not using OT characters enough, it’s laughably bad enemies.

What is the point exactly of an edit where Luke doesn’t die at the end?
The character is dead.
If I had my way The Force Awakens would have ended with Rey landing on Achoo and calling out for him, saying that she needs his help and then, the blue shimmer, left side of the screen, and Luke says, “you may need to learn to help yourself” wipe to credits.
