Next on my completed edits list are the Star Wars prequels. It's a lighter edit than most I've seen, removing only the worst of Jar Jar's antics and Annie's acting. I never thought I'd be confident enough to attempt editing a Star War, but I finally did it. As I found my appreciation for the prequels growing over the years, I realized I didn't really want to remove as much as most of the edits I'd seen. Ebumms prequel edits almost hit the spot for me, but I wanted just a few more moments trimmed out.
