I enjoyed Part 2 slightly less than Part 1.
The editing was fine, but the Dusty, while nicely marred, was sepia toned, and that just struck me as wrong.
Mind you, I appreciated how this looked, but to me a 30s serial ought to be B&W.
The sound was great, visual and audio editing flawless.
Can easily recommend this edit, especially if the viewer doesn't suffer strange prejudices towards sepia tinting.
I LOVE THIS! What a fantastic way to bring life to this edit! All it needs is the score to be played on an old upright bar piano (lol) Hope he posts the film grain version. Other than correcting some of the spelling issues and grammar and text clarity issues, I would only like to see Episode IV end with the second shot of Vader’s TIE regaining control then flying out to space, to show his escape at the end and in true serial fashion, leaving you hanging. – That’s all! 4/5 for parts 1 & 2!

In the end, I found this surprisingly not as entertaining as the silent edition of the prequel trilogy. The only thing that could surprise me more was that I actually did enjoy your version of the prequels!
I watched this with my girlfriend, and she kept getting pissed off that scenes she liked were cut… well, let’s just say she didn’t really “get” the idea, or at least didn’t like it. I enjoyed the idea very much, even for great movies, I appreciate having the option to see them in a new light, and the short running times were perfect for not overstaying their welcome. I think these were great ideas, and will surely share them with other friends in the future.
