The recent thread discussing Qui Gon Jinn had me interested in revisiting the prequel trilogy just to learn a bit more about the universe and the ideas Lucas was trying to fit in.
Are the fan recuts / edits worth watching, or should I stick to the official editions?
I would stick to the originals. The fan edits are opinions about what the editor likes and doesn't like, and I have found a single edit that I agree with 100%.
For instance, some people think the senate scenes are boring, but I personally love them. Squabbling in the galactic senate is one of my favorite aspects of the prequels. But I also watch a lot of C-SPAN. If Herschlag went on Capitol Hill and started arguing for giving Obama a 3rd term while wearing this outfit, I think I'd support her too.
It was about finding Luke, so having a shadow/silhouette of Luke looming in the background with Rey and Kylo in the foreground would fit perfectly. It'd be better than this crap.
Watch the original official editions once and for all so you never have to again.
I did it before TFA because I haven't seen them in a long time and somewhere around that part in Attack Of The Clones where Anakin is eating a fucking pair I nearly died. Just what the fuck
>took on a dark user with a weapon he wasn't trained to use knowing he might die
>lead a team into hostile territory to save a cunt mary sue that ends up doing everything by herself at the end
>in this outfit
>not this one
Screentime doesn't matter, all the movies are about his transformation to the dark side, which is what the image symbolizes. You are either being a contrarian douchebag or are genuinely retarded.
