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.
