The wedding

Why: I think the ending of a movie is probably the most important part of movie because it sets the feeling that the audience is left with when leaving the movie theater or switching off their DVD player. Even if a movie totally sucks, a good ending sort of brings everything together and makes the movie decent. Anyone ever seen “American Beauty?” The Star Wars movies use this idea to make a great movie even better which is another thing that makes Star Wars Star Wars. For example you have a great movie like ANH, and then you get an ending like the throne room ceremony and all of a sudden you have an image that stays in your mind forever, and image that tells you that ANH is a good movie. The reason why I’m mentioning this is because although the ending of AOTC was grand and tried to be romantic and everything, I don’t think it was as effective as it could’ve been. If the ending was a bit tweaked up, it could let the viewer forgive a lot of the previous little mistakes.

I don’t think the wedding should start so fast with booming music in the background. I think it would be a lot more effective if it was slowed down at the beginning. It’s like a post-conclusion conclusion. I think it would also be nice if Anakin and Padmé exchanged a few words before the ceremony, very briefly explaining why they’re getting married so fast. This would make their relationship a lot more believable to the viewer.

How: First of all, I think after seeing the clones getting loaded onto the transports, the next scene has to be totally slowed down. The music should be slow and faint at first, which I don’t think should be “Across the Stars” but maybe something new. New footage also needs to be put in the beginning as an introduction to the wedding. A few quick words can be exchanged between Anakin and Padmé and as soon as everyone is where they’re standing in the current version, add the original scene with the original music, and that will lead to the end of the movie. I think the new twist would make for a really cool ending.
