I’m not sure who widely considers this to be the best TPM edit out there – especially when it says that on all 3 ADM edits for Star Wars!

Personally, I think Attack of the Phantom is almost perfect as it removes all the bits I despised the most(rather than ADM’s version). Anyway, I digress.

I like ADM edits, this editor has done some of my favourite edits thus far, such as Blade Runner.

Here though, I feel the edit just hasn’t gone far enough. Jar Jar is still annoying, the Neimoidians are still dodgy-Chinese, stupid dialogue still exists. Re-inserted scenes like the waterfall scene don’t really add to the story. I’ve previously watched Balance of the Force by Magnoliafan – and this went so much further to improve the film. This is more subtle and maybe for some OK. I wanted more.
