First off I know I'm a tad bit late to the game on this one. But c'mon just how many Star Wars edits are there????? Anyway I was sorting through some titles and realized I hadn't watched this one. I know it's in the style of a Tarantino film, but with the music score (Tarantino yes) I was hald waiting for Clint Eastwood to round the corner waiting to paint the town red. The mood of this and the split screens brought me back to the 70s and even the 60s. And with about 40 minutes cut, you don't even notice. Even though I don't do techie reviews I can see this took a bit of time and effort. I told a friend about this title, he's new to fan edits and sent him a link to watch. He's very curious about what he's going to see. My only knock is sometimes the music overtook the dialogue. Other than that on my popcorn scale of entertainment I will give this a 7 out 5 it's that good and enjoyable. Well onto my next title
This was a fantastic edit. As soon as I read the description, I knew that the samurai/western vibe of Tarantino films would be absolutely perfect for this, and it somehow surpassed even those expectations. I loved it so much, it even inspired me to make an unofficial sequel of my own to wrap it up. I'm not saying that to shamelessly self-promote, I'm saying that because the biggest compliment a content creator of any kind can get is that they inspired somebody. And if this inspired somebody enough to make their first fanedit, that's really saying alot. So thank you for this gift, my brother and I love Star Wars and Tarantino films, so we had an absolute blast watching this. Definitely recommend!
I keep it short as most of the reviews are highlighting the Quality enough.
For me this was the First Edit i saw and it was so much fun that i recomend it to everyone.
The Ideas used are funny and witty and hearing Stuntmen Mike´s Care every now and than is so cool.
I suppose where I'm coming from will surprise no one, but I am a fan of most things Tarantino, and Empire is one of my top 10 (maybe even top 5) favorite movies. Naturally, I was very excited for this edit when I heard about it and wanted to see this one for myself! I'm happy to say that, despite my high expectations, I was quite impressed!
This edit pretty much is the epitome of "give 'em what they want." I wanted a Tarantino-esque version of Empire Strikes Back, and I got it. I could throw in my own complaints, but they're of the super nit-picky variety. Like maybe that stylistic choice was overused, or I wish njvc used a different song for that moment, or the narration on that part was weird, etc. None of my criticisms hold any merit to the edit as a whole.
Like everyone else has already said, this is a fun watch! Of course, most Tarantino films are fun to begin with, so I consider it as a compliment that this edit manages to capture the feel of a Tarantino film. I find that the emotion of an edit is often one of the more underlooked aspects of fan editing, so I always appreciate it when a fanedit gets the feel just right!
If you saw this ifdb page and it immediately sparked your interest, then by all means, go seek it out! You won't be sorry.
This film was just a whole bunch of fun - it wasn't afraid to take risks and I had an absolute blast watching it. The editing is on a whole nother level, with lots of fun split screens and funky text combined with the incredible music and audio editing creates a new experience to watch TESB. That being said I think the narrative, although wildly entertaining, is not as good as it could've been and as mentioned in numerous other reviews, the excessive slo mo does get tiring after a while.
Overall, I thoroughly had a blast watching it and would recommend if you go in with an open mind - not thinking about it as a TESB edit and instead thinking about it as if it's a different film.
