i thought i was done here

See now I'm not done. I thought I was done with Attack of the Clones commentary. But I'm not done. Because here's the thing:

I saw Attack of the Clones in the theatres, right? And I fell asleep during it, somewhere early middle, and woke up a little later, not having missed much.

Having managed - barely! - to stay awake the entire film this time, I can tell you now I was out in that theatre for a solid 45 minutes. And why didn't I know it was a solid 45 minutes at the time?


Seriously, there was like another 45 minutes to this film I'd never seen. I had no idea any of it was there. Some of it I have seen in clips later and presumed it was from Revenge of the Sith. I am serious when I say this isn't "did I forget this part?" territory, this was "is this a new cut because George does that" territory, but it's not a new cut, it's just that all those minutes are that completely and utterly a total waste of screen time.
