  1. I suppose a Project XX was a necessary step to get to that inevitable cash cow, Project XXX.

  2. Double the Terry Richardson, double the UGH.

  3. Gosh darnit I though that Topher Grace/Star Wars new would warrant a separate “Hey, What’s Up With Topher Grace” post.

  4. I know last week (or whenever it was) I gave a spiel about spurned Star Wars fans needing to move on, and that no matter how many in-depth video critiques, what if’s, and edits are made to the Prequels, the fact of the matter is the films are what they are.

    So I have to admit, when I heard that Topher Grace took 7+ hours of footage from the Prequel Trilogy and cut it into a cohesive 85 minute film with a pretty sound narrative, the first thing I thought was, “I wouldn’t mind checking that out.”

    I also liked that the /Film article touched on the point I had made about re-editing the Prequels. No matter which way you cut the film, the problems of the performances, writing and dialogue are still present, and that only through editing can the damage done at least be minimized and contained to a degree. It’s a very smart choice to leave most if not all of Episode I on the cutting room floor. The choice to open the film with the Darth Maul battle at the end of Episode I is a gutsy one that make a lot of sense, considering how none of the characters in the first film are important at all outside of setting up motivations for Obi-Wan, which was pretty much EXCLUSIVELY the death of Liam Neeson’s character.

    Any re-editing by fans of existing works as a creative outlet is pretty enjoyable, simply because you get to see the familiar in a new context, whether it’s a supercut, the Star Wars prequels, or films with non-linear narratives edited back together in chronological order (like Pulp Fiction or Memento).

    I guess it’s a blessing in disguise that Topher won’t be sharing his film with the online masses. I really don’t want to watch those films again. But I have to admit that the editing sounds so cutthroat and precise that it might be worth the 85 minute run time.
