All I can say is WOW. I can't believe I actually enjoyed Attack of the clones! If you are someone like me who just wants to see better Star Wars films, look no further. This is a FANTASTIC edit. I only have minor gripes
There's little else I can add that hasn't all ready been said, the original movie was really awful but this edit vastly improves matters. Perhaps the only thing I'd like to have seen would've been the inclusion of the Anakin and Padme trial. It's a short scene and would have provided a nice bridge between the Padme, Dooku negotiation and the kiss scene. In saying that though this is definitely my favourite version.
I know I watched at least one workprint of this edit, maybe two, but watching the final version was long overdue. And today I finally did so.
I really enjoyed this edit, and it was an extra treat to see it in HD. Technically the edit is spot-on, with fairly invisible audio and video work. I say "fairly invisible" because there were a few (barely) noticeable audio transitions, which I'm sure I only noticed due to my (some would say insane) familiarity with the original material. While there were some spots where I would have handled things a bit differently, I can safely say that this is as close as anyone will come to editing the movie the way I want to see it (until I decide to try it myself, of course).
I put off watching this too long, but now I can finally put it on my display shelf.
WOW, I just fished watching this movie, and it was amazing. If they make another star wars movie they should hire l8wrtr to edit it. I have probably watched episode 2 20 times and this was the first time I felt any connection between anakin and padme. The movie moves at a good pace, and I actually like anakin now. I do wish that the jengo fett scenes weren't cut short. I will never watch the lucas version again, and I cant wait to watch your other edits. Good job!
