Review by QuickCut — January 18, 2012 @ 5:43 am

I haven’t laughed this hard all year.

Technical quality – 10/10 – audio and video were both fine.

Presentation – 10/10 – nice menu, nice cover art.

Editing – 7/10 – the video editing was flawless and just the fact that you merged all those different scenes and audio clips was incredible. I took off a couple points because the audio editing was so horrible, but you can’t really work around that.

Entertainment – 9/10 – I couldn’t stop laughing. The only non-hilarious parts were a few scenes on Coruscant and some of the ending battle. The rest of it was side-splitting. So many funny jokes. Sometimes they got repetitive but still. This was insanely funny. The soundtrack, the dubbing, the yippees, the podrace, the angel jokes, the droids, the video game health bars, Anakin’s father, the list goes on and on and on. So hilarious. I’ll definitely be recommending this one. Would have gotten a point higher if you had somehow been able to make the audio editing a bit smoother.

Overall – 8/10

Bloody hilarious. Editing isn't seamless, but nor would you expect it to be. Many things throughout are a testament to Frinks skill as an editor, even if the audio makes you question it. Bottom line is: this is very, very funny.

Favourite moments: Qui-gon trolling people with the comm,and Obi-Wan misjudging the jump during the Maul battle. Priceless. Oh, and replacing "force" with "wookies"? Love it.

This has such good ideas in it. This movie was frankly ridiculous, so to just turn it into a full on joke was a great idea. I laughed many times in this edit. The level of repetition worked most of the time for me. I had a lot of fun watching this edit and would recommend it.

I recently realized that I had never left a proper review for this edit, even after seeing the footage so many times when Frink put out the edit originally. This was definitely something I needed to remedy, and I finally had some time this evening to give it another spin. After 5 years, I was curious to see how the gags would hold up. Nothing to fear there! Not only did they hold up, but this edit aged like fine wine. Well, maybe some halfway decent boxed wine. I forgot how many great gags were in this and I laughed out loud (loudly) at several points during the film. Some of the jokes are dated to pop-culture of 2011, but that somehow made them even more amusing (2016 could have used a lot more nyan cat).

Some of the audio editing is rough in spots, and while that is usually distracting or a deal breaker, it adds to the charm here. Some of the jokes will go over the viewers head, and others may overstay there welcome, but so many are ROFL-worthy.

I've really grown to loathe the prequels over the years. This is now the only way I intend on watching them moving forward. Thanks Frink!

Apparently, I've rated this before. Now there are two of them.

Thus begins the Ridiculous trilogy. Off to a nice start! I'm always happy when editors take and implement our suggestions. They don't have to, of course, but it's great when they're willing to listen, as many minds can make a superior product in some cases. I could've done without some of it, but then, it's not my edit. (not crazy about some of the repetition and internet culture stuff, seeing as I'm not a 12-year-old girl) There is also some stuff that I thought was brilliantly done, both straight from Frink's damaged brain and from contributors.

The audio and video are quite good for the most part. I thought some things could've been taken a step further (I would have really tried to do more with pitch changes, even if it didn't seeeeeem to work upon initial tries), but overall, with this type of edit, it's about as good as it can get.

Overall, a must see. It's sort of a 'love it or hate it' type of movie now (like Kung Pow, for instance), as opposed to the 'hate it' movie it was as-is, but I would definitely recommend that every Star Wars fan check this out. You may even begin to—*gasp*—LIKE The Phantom Menace! At least a bit...
