rewatching Star Wars: the prequel trilogy (the tweetening)

Earlier this week, I rewatched the three Star Wars prequel films — Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Episode II: Attack of the Clones, and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith — and live-tweeted some reactions. (See also my live-tweet of a rewatch of the original trilogy.) Here’s how it went down on Twitter:

The Force Awakens makes episodes 1 – 6 are now prequels 0_o!

(and then I responded to this earlier tweet, which I’m repeating here for clarity)

Have you heard of the Anti-Cheese Edits? Phantom Menace got a good 30 minutes shaved off its runtime.

Losing Marcia Lucas as an editor is surely one of the major problems with the prequels.

I was noticing during the recent rewatch that Anakin/Vader is responsible for killing off both the light side AND the dark side of the force. It turns out what the prophecy really meant is that there were too many humans using the force and they needed to be killed off…
