    Playing around with some new video editing software last night, and inspired by @STEVEN SEAGOLD 's thread & @BisexualMMA 's comment, I decided to make something I've always wanted to have:

    A cut of The Phantom Menace, but with only the great stuff kept in, and all of the complete bullshit cut out.

    The result, is basically a very short film about an evil assassin sent to kill two Jedi.

    It is 9 minutes long.

    I made it fairly high-quality, so you can fullscreen it, or even watch it on your TV.

    You would be amazed how many edits had to be made, even the duel scene was previously unwatchable or at least very hard to enjoy, because George Lucas made SOOOOO many cuts in the middle of the scene, to check in with 3 other terrible plotlines, and go back & forth.

    Well... No longer.

    This is my cut.

    There are no horrible child actors.

    There are no hours of bad dialogue regarding vague intergalactic taxation laws.

    There is no Jar Jar.


    Enjoy.

    I will have to use stretching technology to turn the 10 episodes into 20, but okay: Challenge Accepted.

    What's the fluff in True Detective S2? I remember it did have some great spots. Kisch's character I enjoyed, especially how it ended for him.

    He's just breaking my balls, because I am one of the 42* people on this Earth that fucking loved TD S2.

    If you want to release your "extended edition" (10 minutes), this is only an additional 75 seconds.



    Also, perfect handling of the crawl. Exactly what that text deserved.

    I actually liked it. I gave S1 an A- and S2 a B+

    Season 1's final act was questionably weak, especially compared to the first half. S2 was kind of all over the place, but it had some real strong points...

    This has been a very cathartic 24 hours for me as a long-time Phantom Menace survivor

    Damn, this is solid. There's quite a few Movies that would benefit from this too. Time for a new thread series...

    my favorite part is when the lightsabers hit 5 feet away from any vital organ/body part

    really stressed the tension in the fights when no ones in any kind of danger

    Pod race you say?

    Ask... & ye shall receive.

    *BONUS FEATURE*

    In fact... how about a Pod Race...

    ... with NO ANAKIN.

    That's right... I have removed every shot of that little shit's face -- EXCEPT when he is being shot at, by Tusken raiders.

    I have also removed every shot of, & almost every stupid line of dialogue by the horrible announcer, reaction shots of them, as well as all dialogue & reactions from Jar Jar.

    In fact, I have removed almost all of the pointless dialogue from everyone altogether.

    Nothing but pure, unadulterated, Pod Race.

    Enjoy.

    I really want to see the edit that Topher Grace made of the prequels.
