The Phantom Edit

from the ah...-digital-film-making dept

A very interesting article about someone (apparently, this is all well known within the Star Wars fanatic world – a world I am obviously not a part of) who took the latest (but first) Star Wars movie, The Phantom Menace, and re-edited it by cutting out certain parts to make it better. Most people seem to agree that it is much better. However, the simple act of a fan re-editing a movie brings up a lot of questions. Since the original Phantom Edit, many others have tried to re-edit the Phanton Menace, and the writer of the article wonders if this is going to be a new trend of fans doing post-movie edits.

Re: behind the curve

Yup. I missed this one (though, I made that clear in the post). I also, of course, missed the Diamondbacks win.

But, the ideas in the article about how other movies may soon get similar treatment is interesting and worth posting on its own.

Okay. I’ll try to go back to predicting the future from now on.
