    I liked the idea. I know the oldschooler OT people don't want the OT tinkered with (and I agree for the most part), but I think a little music makes the consensous weakest saber fight (relative to the others and already with NO music) have some umpff.

    The original fight is fine to me (these young whipper snappers just want "faster, more intense") But with the music, (IMO) you don't actually need to change the duel - saving most of the integrity of the scene.

    I think the Saber fight between Vader and ObiWan in ANH is still good. I mean they havent used their sabers for 20 or so years plus they are older and know each other well. That fight was more about the dialogue then the fight anyways

    By the way, the new clip is pretty good. I like the part when ObiWan's cloak gets cut it in half, the music fits nicely

    Very very cool...the only problem I have with it is the dialogue is really really muffled under the music....but it really put a new spin on that battle! thumbs up!=D=

    Like it has been said before, it was not that bad but could have a few improvements. I liked it. Especially the "death" of Obi-wan. The music fit that perfectly.

    However the timing of the music was off, which can be fixed. There shouldn't be crazy dramatic trumpets when C-3PO tells R2 to "Come Along". It just didn't fit that well. I actually think Duel of the Fates would suit better in that duel. Just my opinion.

    But very nicely done! Hats off for this!

    That was quite hilarious :)
    It would be interesting to add that kind of music if they extended the duel and made it more energetic.



    You should have come back

    The ANH duel would be best with the Benny Hill theme over it. Would you do that for us Han?

    Well, I just watched it and I LOVE it. It almost seems like it was composed for that scene. For example, there's that little playful bit in the music. This plays right when you see Luke, Han, Chewie and Leia. Brilliant. And, the part where Obi-Wan is struck down is brilliant too.

    Seriously, this added so much more tension to the scene. People keep saying that this scene might need to be redone to match the PT duels. Screw that. Add this music track to it, albeit slightly edited, and it would really make the scene.

    Great job.

    Once Again that was an Amazing Remix of the duel in A new hope. Damn that music gave me more chills then Duel of fates and what also gave me Goosbumps was when they put both of the Duel musics togther.

    The music linked up wonderfully, and you edited so that it would be moreso. I think a better scene would have been Luke's duel with him in ROTJ, though admittedly the musical link would not be as strong. The only thing is, the music is so soaring and heroic and the duel is fairly piddly.

    it would interesting to see battle of the heroes mixed with an OT specific song during the duel, becuase i really loved the intensity it gave it, but it gave me a little to much PT feel . perhaps if a slower score where intertwined with that one, much how during the fight in the mustafar control room i believe...an OT score is briefly mixed in....just my thoughts....very well done though, good job.

    One thing that just came to me while watching this (good job by the way)...After seeing the lightsaber duels in the prequels, I have been really saddened by the original duels. However, it has now come to me that it is no wonder that this duel is drastically less "active". Obi-Wan is now about 60 years old and has not been in a duel since Anakin on Mustafar, Also, Darth Vader is 1/2 man and 1/2 machine. He hasn't been in a duel since his battle with Obi-Wan, and this is the first one he has been in with both his arms cut off, and two prosthetic legs. Oh, he also can't breathe the way he was able to 20 years ago. So a little less action, but definitely more drama.

    Thanks for that.

    Am I the only one here that thinks that that was terrible? The music(BotH) represents a high paced duel to the death. The ANH duel, however, is a gentlemans duel. It is a duel between two old wizards that chose their shots. It is not between two young naive punks in their prime lashing out without care.
    When I watched it, I kept waiting to hear Obiwan or Vader start looking around saying "Why is there a choir singing in the other room...and why does it feel like I should be in a highspeed dogfight".

    The music doesn't match the ANH duel at all. The ANH duel music was perfect before...there was no music. Music in movies is there for one reason and that is to convey emotion. Why would you want to convey the emotion of crazy high speed reckless abandon when they're not fighting like that? Again, I thought it was totally terrible. A better choice of song would have been "Palpatine's Teachings" with a bit of a flare as Obiwan got chopped in half. The duel should have tension, not action. It's more of a duel of philosophies and words than a duel of strength. The music should emote it.
