Belated Media is back with another attempt to de-crapify the Star Wars prequel trilogies. They took on Episode I first, and had some rather good edits that would have made things significantly less terrible. Now they’re back to see how those changes would ripple into Episode II, along with other edits that really change the core structure of the film.
The main point here is that the focus of the story should not be on the romance between Anakin and Padme, but rather the relationship between Obi-Wan and Anakin, and how that deteriorates and ultimately leads Anakin to the dark side. I don’t think the Padme relationship needs to be killed completely (and it can’t be, because babies), but it definitely needed to be reworked to not be the most laughable part of the entire franchise.
He has some interesting ideas here, and it’s a 16 minute YouTube video where I actually stuck around for the whole thing for a change. It’s not Red Letter Media’s brutal 90 minute reviews, but it’s pretty good in it’s own right. Eat your heart out, David R.
