Initially I had planned to give an overview of various re-edits of The Phantom Menace, but I soon realized I couldn’t spend the time to watch them, nor did I really want to. I don’t much care for The Phantom Menace and delving into it seemed like more torture than I wanted to endure for an unpaid job I intend to enjoy (ie. blogging). So let me just say there’s an infamous first re-edit called The Phantom Edit, it is highly regarded as fixing the bulk of the film’s problems, and you can easily watch it on YouTube but at a pretty crappy resolution (360p). You can also BitTorrent it at a much more reasonable resolution, but that’s on you to hook up. I stick by my assertion that The Phantom Menace is entirely skippable.
So instead, I offer you something awesome instead of a polished turd. Here is a trailer for the original Star Wars trilogy done in the style of The Guardians of the Galaxy trailer by Ross Thompson, aka The Unusual Suspect. Bravo, sir!
