I downloaded the Attack of the Phantom DVD ISO file a while back and while it is a definite improvement, it's not quite as glaring as The Phantom Edit was. One annoying thing the guy did was to include a little image that appears on the screen every time he cut something THAT YOU CAN'T TURN OFF! It drives me nuts. I'm considering taking the disc and just taking the movie and audio and making a DVD out of that (similar to what I do to make my Rifftrax DVDs). Again, if you want to find it, look up the torrent file. I use UTorrent now. A much better program than BitTorrent.

Same here.  Only 4 megs of memory!

Still kills my internet connection while it's on, though. Which is why I always use it while I'm sleeping. The price you pay to download random crap . . .

Just to be clear- people think this makes the movie better, not good, right? Because I'm not sure there's a movie's worth of quality at any level, acting, writing, directing, set design, or editing, in all three prequels. There are a few short good bits, but the fundamentally terrible plot line and poorly created roles mean that I really don't think the series is salvageable. If these edits manage that, I want to see them immediately.

It all depends on what you're looking for. No, it doesn't turn TPM into The Empire Strikes Back, but without most of the silliness of Jar Jar and the overly-childishness of Anakin, it make it much more watchable and believeable.

I bet if I did my own "Phantom Edit"... I could cram the substance of the entire movie into 10 minutes. NO, SERIOUSLY. :D

no matter, threads in the child boards have no expiration dates.

Well, I've been out of circulation for a couple months, anyway (IP issues). I did finally figure out how to get that stupid icon out of the film in AOTP. It was some kind of subtitle, so all I had to do was turn off the subtitles. Something I noticed on a recent viewing was that he cut out about 75% of the Jango/Obi-Wan fight scene. Guess that one is a little too long for its own good. He also cut out the diner scene and whole lot of the love scenes. What he did leave in of the love plot was brief and to the point, without any water/sand debates or giant tick riding.

What I'd like to do is go through the original trilogy and the "special editions" and put together a "not-so-special edition". That way I can have the neat little CGI additions like the cooler Death Star explosion (and I actually liked the Han/Jabba scene in A New Hope), but I could take out Greedo shooting first and the stupid singing thing in Jabba's palace in Return of the Jedi. All I need to do is get the original cuts on DVD . . . it's hard to convince my wife that I need yet another set of Star Wars movies (I have 3 sets of the first trilogy on tape in addition to my DVDs, after all - original, remastered, and special edition).

You know, one of these days I want to do my own phantom edit and attack of the edits, but it'll probably take a while because I want to replace lines of dialog with my own  ;D
