You read that correctly. I want to watch pan and scan versions of modern films and television shows on VHS but I haven’t a clue where to start. I know the PT got a VHS release (though ROTS is very rare) but I would dearly love to watch Disney Star Wars and NuWho on VHS as well as some fanedits. I have a CRT TV so it would be a real hoot. Are there any known projects out there doing this?
Another aspect of the film that bugged me since watching it is the title. The Clones don’t attack they use military force to rescue the Jedi so it’s more a retaliation than an attack.
the one thing that i wish ESB:R had was this C3PO line from the mono mix
Me too but maybe someone else will do it. I would love to see Ady’s work but with the option to hear it with John Williams’ unused music properly timed but once again work for somebody else.
Well done everyone. I felt as if millions of voices cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. And then said yay and came back again.

"… Have you considered cutting something in the shot of Mace defending Dooku? I just feel like he’s patronizing towards Padme. I would probably cut the last line.
Yes, he is Windusplaining
One bit that’s probably impossible to do anything about but has bugged me all these years. The film makes out sword fighting and acrobatics are more impressive than throwing the ceiling at people and making electricity spark out of your finger tips (something the Palpatine should be the only user really but I digress). For me it makes more sense if Yoda and Dooku use sabers first magic next. It leads into Dooku dropping a large pipe on Kenobi and Skywalker if they are at that point chucking the architecture at each other.
Have a sad trombone play every time someone is killed. Have a dial up Internet modem sound start when Artoo uses his computer willy.

Have all of the opening crawls of the films end with that Markdown Syntax message.
Just make it the crawl. Weirdly I didn’t post that post. But I wish I had🤔
Dune : The Uberlynch Version. I love the Spicediver Edit. It takes as much of the availabile footage and orders the scenes to match the structure of the book more and removes the worst changes. I watched it in Monochrome once as I heard a rumour that Lynch toyed with the idea as his first two hits had been in beautiful black and white. It’s really good. The monochrome hides some of the worst effects compositing and the grainier deleted scenes stand out less. One thing about Lynch films in general is they have a strange dreamlike stilted feel. Lynch says his films make 100% sense but he purposely removes scenes or exposition that might explain how it makes sense. That way the viewer is given room to piece the narrative together. However in Dune he makes the unique choice of giving everyone a voiceover even characters we only see a few times. I like it a lot but it does remove that Lynchian mystery. So what I’m proposing is essentially the Spicediver edit in monochrome (possibly with the exception of the eyes) but with all internal monologue and expositional introductions removed and maybe the Baron’s death trimmed to just a needle scratch. I’m curious to see how much the film holds up without the exposition.

Replace D-O’s lines so that he exclusively speaks in names of emotions.
But with the word “Darth” before each.
Anakin is written as a creep in AOTC, but that wasn’t driven home so completely until I watched this video:
It’s an interpretation of the character which might actually work in isolation and could be fascinating. However, it is this aspect of the prequels, above anything else, that makes them fundamentally incompatible with the spirit of the OT. Luke’s journey is predicated on the belief that his father was basically a good man, but if Anakin is really just a predatory creep then his redemption rings hollow. But take away Anakin’s predatory and creepy behavior and you have removed his most distinctive and interesting trait.
I don’t know how you would go about fixing this problem.
I attempted to have this more explicit by having Vader begin as a fugue state. A dark robed figure that follows him around and removes people that anger him until eventually Anakin is lost, realises he is Vader and only Vader remains.
An idea popped in there.
Never liked Yoda’s death scene.
So imagine Luke has just rescued Han. Luke announces to the audience his intention to return to Yoda. We see the swamps of Dagobah Yoda is meditating. We hear engines and see an out of focus ship land behind him. “I sensed you coming old friend. The time has come. One last lesson have I” It’s not Luke. A red Saber ignites, Vader’s breath. “I will teach you to die”. When Luke gets back Yoda is one with the Force. His hut is smoldering ruins. The dialogue with Ben’s ghost continues as before.
The frequently weird digital zooms in the prequels are continued until the pixels are visible. And then we cut back to the next shot.
When Jengo Fett jets into the arena to face Mace the Clones descend all turn and say “Dad?” When Mace decapitates him the Clones start crying and all turn on him. Mace Windu spends hours decapitating all of them.
When Obi Wan is shown to Jengo’s apartment on kamino Boba opens the door. You can hear Jengo straining at stool behind the other door. There is a flushing sound. Taun-we shouts “Dioxis!” Obi-Wan instinctively puts his Jedi breathing pipe in while Boba complains about the stench. The conversation continues as before but Obi-Wan has the pipe in his mouth so he sounds like a bad ventriloquist.
VADER : “Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father”
LUKE : “He told me enough, he told me you killed him.”
VADER :“Oh… he did tell you. Wow… Yeah I did that… Opps”
It’s incredible to think that’s a film edit of the video game Fallen Order.
It’s incredible to think that’s a fan film.
sucks the prequel trilogy got abandoned
Yeah, in a way, I was looking forward to that more than ROTJ:R.
THAT… but hopefully these projects will inspire more.
Ideally they should have continued the gag from ESB of have the emperor have a giant hologram. Palpatine’s ego doesn’t fit on a desk.
So many potential line borrows here. https://youtu.be/lUJhspu2ZPg
I also agree. Personally I loved The Last Jedi, but it’s a fact that this movie resolved the internal struggle in Rey when one movie still had to be made. She accepted her lack of famous ancestors and she refused to join Kylo.
Palpatine has been a tool to add another (weak) struggle. The only other would be to have Rey kill her parents (that’s why she fears herself), but some of us already tried that and the result was never really great.
That’s actually a good idea. What if she used the Force instinctively to try and stop her parents from leaving and destroyed their ship. A memory reactivated when she thinks she’s killed Chewbecca.
That way you wouldn’t have to change much. Extend the flashback from the Force Awakens and add the ship held in midair before exploding. Use this as memory flashes after the Force lightning scene. So when Kylo Ren taunts her she understands he isn’t lying.
Welcome, I suggest you read this sacred text which explains why we don’t share links openly. https://originaltrilogy.com/announcement/Notes-on-Piracy-Please-Read/id/13347 and follow the advice above.
And have fun damn it! 😁
