The last 10 minutes make it all worth it!
Following the format description of Topher Grace's edit, here is a 2 hour re-cut of the prequel trilogy. I wanted to focus on the core story line of Anakin's fall, improve character relationships and development and cut out unnecessary story fat. I also went deep into removing/ rearranging phrases and words that I think improved performances and interactions as well as rearranging some of the score.
My favourite parts (and most drastic changes) are the first 5 minutes and last 10 minutes if you don't feel like sitting through the entire thing. These parts I think almost make up for all the ... "not so good parts".
In all, I think it's an improvement in story telling though there's only so much you do with bad acting. I see this as being like a rough cut if a single film was made from the prequels. It's not great, but it does make it... better?
(also mid-credits scene!)
