What a fantastic edit. It's what brought me back to the site after a few years away, just knowing the quality that can be achieved in a fanedit.

Honestly, the original episode IV is not a movie I would ever watch again. I'm not a hardcore fan and more importantly, I find this edit much superior. It's funny, it's deeper, and more intense. Using dialog from other James Earl Jones films is genius (I particularly enjoyed the line from Conan). The bar scene turns from a circus to a really down-to-earth cyberpunk experience. The choice of Neil Young is excellent.

Because the tone can be so dense and serious at times, the humor works really well, like the use of the behind the scenes footage where Lea and Luke are drinking a coke (at least I think it was, I'm reviewing from memory).

All in all a most recommendable edit.
