Sure, Star Wars Episode II is pretty terrible, especially when compared to the original trilogy. But what would it take to turn it into a decent movie? Here's the answer.

Though all our attention is focused on J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars Episode VII, you’d have to think a lot of fans will be digging back through the first two trilogies for a refresher course within the next year. Sadly, they’ll still find that the prequel trilogy still doesn’t hold up too well. But what if it was good?

That’s what some intrepid fans at Belated Media have tried to figure out, and they’ve whipped up a 16-minute guide to turning the hot mess that was Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones into a solid sci-fi flick. George Lucas, if you ever get antsy to do a major recut, give these guys a call.

If nothing else, it’s a fun walk down memory lane as we keep holding on for some real details about the next great Star Wars adventure. Plus, it's a fun jumping-off point for some what-ifs.

Check out the Episode II clip above, and you can find a video the gang did last year about Episode I below.

What do you think? Could these changes have saved these flicks?
