All 6 Star Wars films at once. Has an amazing art-house-like quality. More watchable than the prequels.

It contains the prequels, so I guess it's more than the sum of its parts?

I am so fucking tired of Star Wars - and yet I love this.

Thanks for sharing.

Would this being better than the prequels be some variant of Russell's Paradox?

*skips to the end*

The longest Star Wars movie is Attack of the Clones?! Really?!

We were somewhere around Anchorhead on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold.

So it turns out that long titles on posts hose my phone's browser by expanding the front page width wider than the display, without benefit of a horizontal scrollbar with which to pan the page. Oddly, everything is okay on the thread page.

Will this require six DMCA takedown notices or just the one?

Reminds me of Starcrash. Easier to watch, though.

I skipped ahead after watching the titles to about 12 minutes or so, and was overwhelmed by the annoying sound of Jar-Jar. Cool concept but I had to switch it off and am now considering cutting The Phantom Menace completely out of my Machete Style rewatches in the future as a result.

There's a gallery of screencaps from this that contains some absolutely beautiful images.

For some reason it had never occurred to me that the orchestration was re-recorded for each film.

That reason is that I am a dumbass.

It's as if someone said to the neural networks at Google Video, "Hey, neural networks at Google Video, make me a video based on the search terms 'star' and 'wars'."

It's like Jodorowsky's Star Wars. With less sex.

When you are done watching this you can catch up on Doctor Who.

Relatedly awesome, slightly less watchable but even more ridiculously perfect in my eyes:

ARST ARSW: every single word in Star Wars isolated and re-sorted in alphabetical order and then spliced together again.

It was posted here a while ago, and I quite enjoyed it.

I'm torn between wanting to call that an obsessive waste of time, and not wanting to denigrate what is clearly some kind of masterpiece.

I could've sworn there used to be a version where it was the six films laid out on a 3x2 grid, and I'd assumed that that was what all the links for this version were actually for. Either I just can't find it, or it's actually been taken down.

But it doesn't seem like Disney stands to lose anything by leaving this alone.

The sound of this is amazing all by itself.

I've got this going in two different browsers at once and I'm not sure my OS can take much more.

Enough scrolling yellow text to convey the expanded universe.

This is the best representation yet of what I actually perceive when I'm (re-)watching those films. In fact it is using Star Wars to illustrate how we perceive in general.

Thanks- that saved me 10.916 hours!

Nothing is more watchable than the prequels.

No, I mean that literally. Try it. Sit in front of a blank screen for three hours, it's a *much* better experience.

I feel like I'm watching a really long Livejournal icon animation. Those filters and layer blending take me back to the early 00s!

This reminds me of the part in Iain M. Banks's Player of Games where a certain army officer had, in order to broker a peace/surrender, made a promise to a certain species "that not a letter, not a pixel, on the ancient microfiles would be destroyed, and they would be left in situ." The orders from on high were that the library had to be destroyed, so the eventual action he decided on was
He solved the problem by shuffling the library, sorting every word in it into alphabetical order and every pixel of every illustration into order of color, shade and intensity. The original microfiles were wiped and re-recorded with volumes upon volumes of “the”s, “it”s, and “and”s; the illustrations were fields of pure color.
