See Episode II IMAX Edition

07 Nov, 2002, 11:47 | Posted by: Jake
Just a quick update to let you all know that if you ever see Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, or ever see it again, you should definitely see the IMAX print that is currently showing across America, at least.

Not only is the print fantastic (IMAX's 70mm instead of standard 35mm) and the sound awesome, but they cut what seems like 30 or so minutes from the film!

What does this mean? Well, since most of the cutting seems to have been done in the middle, a lot of the unnecessary (and painful) "love" "scenes" between Anakin and Amidala are gone. Calling Anakin "Annie?" Gone. Half of the "I hate sand" monologue? Gone. The scene where Anakin rides around on the annoying upside-down-gourd-shaped sount beast? Gone! Amazing!

I enjoyed myself thoroughly. And, please, like you wanted to buy yet another IMAX ticket just to watch one more volcano/space shuttle documentary. IMAX theater listings.

    I have the DVD (recieved it a little early) and there's edited scenes. Also you shouldn't start sentences with "and".

    Yeah, unlikely though.

    I wonder if this cut will be similar to the dvd that's coming out this tuesday. I mean, ep I on dvd had some shots added.. so who knows.
