Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire [Revisited/Remade]
Time

[UPDATE: FINITIO INCANTATEM AND RELEASE]

It is done. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: Revisited is packed and finished, and the first out of two releases (1080p 5.1 and 1080p Stereo) is uploaded to a Google Drive and ready for action. PMs can be sent to receive instructions. I must emphasize that you should own a legal version of the original movie before doing so. I do not encourage or support illegal viewings of this movie property.

Thank you all for contributing, and thank you to all who will be watching it and (hopefully) enjoying it.

I will submit the edit for the IFDB sometime today or tomorrow, for those who are wondering about that.

My suggestion: make the Emperor’s shuttle unique, paint it red, or black, with the Imperial logo on the side or something.

What the f*ck? Why?

Because the grey stripe it has doesn’t differentiate it enough from the 3 other identical shuttles also in the film? It’s not a bad suggestion.

That is so illogical. So what you suggest, is that the Emperor - leader of the Empire; the biggest threat for the Rebel Alliance and all other of millions who hate and plot behind his fierce back, travel around in a ship that signifies “I am no ordinary passenger”? That’s like Luke traveling in a completely blue X-Wing, written Skywalker on the sides, and expecting not to be followed or shot down or captured.

JEDIT: I see your lust for spicing up the designs, but doing it on the Emperor’s Shuttle just diminishes his logic and therefore his character. Vader, for instance, didn’t follow Luke in a red Tie-Fighter at the end of ANH and blended in with the others, keeping himself at an advantage for doing so rather than an increased target.

  • HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE - REMADE

[Finito Incantatem]

After months and months of hard work, I can happily conclude with the very fact that Goblet of Fire : Revisited is finished in terms of all technical aspects and audio mixes, with very little nitpicks left to do.

Thanks to everyone who has been contributing, and especially to those who have been sticking with me since Sorcerer’s Stone in 2014. All the excellent ideas, constructive criticisms and positive feedback has helped me craft - what I think - is a very, very strong Goblet of Fire.

Special thanks are (from fanedit.org’s community): JJPotter for some excellent high-quality deleted scenes, MWRK and Masirimso17 for a burning desire to improve and suggest, and all others who have in any way contributed. Thank you all.

Now, I will need a cover art. Scar has made some excellent ones for me in the past. I hope some will contribute in this area, as making one myself would be - to say it politely - a catastrophy.

As for a release date; when JJPotter has released his EE for GoF or his approval has been granted, and when I have a cover art.

Surely, thank you all! And an extra thanks to you here on originaltrilogy.com who has made these Remakes of the (now three entries) to my Revisited Saga into some sort of internet cultural thing. I never expected them to grow into this big thing, but having now over 110.000 registered downloads on just the first entry… thank you all.

*** For those who have not followed the progress of this edit, here is a short explanation and some previews: ***

  • Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire is the kind of Harry Potter movie that, as for my passion and mind, requires a totally different kind of work. Just like Sorcerer’s Stone and Chamber of Secrets, it has many weak beats and pacing issues - as well as a narrative full of oddities, but the thing that really stands out for GoF is a horrible original score that horrifyingly resembles Pop Music or a weird Potter-remix. The score has its moments, but most of it is really not cohesive as for the rest of the series on-going themes. Like the opening intro for instance (DUN-DUDUD-- EEEH-EEEEH- DUN-DUDU - EEEH-EEEEH) that sounds like some horror house trance music.

  • So just as Sorcerer’s Stone and Chamber of Secrets, the Goblet of Fire needs a much more cohesive tone to follow along with the rest, as the tone of the fourth movie is in many ways quite different from the rest of the series - not just in score and pacing, but in visual style and tone… So for me it feels like this half continuation of PoA, but half back-tracking into CoS, yet trying to make the movie even darker than its predecessors, and what do we get? A stylistically confusing movie.

STAR WARS: EP VI -RETURN OF THE JEDI &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>NOW IN PRODUCTION</strong>
Time

Only thing I will suggest in this thread is to remove or replace as many puppets in ROTJ as possible.

There is something so lacking in quality in Jabba’s palace compared to ESB - and even it’s much-cheaper ANH counterpart, that the entire sequence is so conflicting to witness. From one scene to another I go from excited to laughing, to annoyed, to laughing again. I will never forget last year when me and two friends re-watched ROTJ the first time in two years (for my part at least), and I was so conflicted about the whole beginning. We couldn’t stop laughing at certain parts because of the stiff movements from many of the aliens, or their horrible facial designs and/or movements. The whole experience made ROTJ into a comedy for me.

If replacing or somehow improving proves difficult or too expensive, I’d suggest just removing the worst designs that are in the forefront all together.

The problem isn’t just that many of the designs are poorly done or ineffective in costume, but that it cheapens the entire sequence in Jabba’s Palace, which is a very worrying problem for the rest of the movie.

The designs that do work are undeniably Jabba, Boba Fett, Leia in disguise, Jabba’s Guards, and others given more than a two-second treatment. Most of the others… what were they thinking… this wasn’t 1950. This was the 80’s! The height of puppeteering and practical effects. And simply going for “background characters will go unnoticed” as a thought of process simply won’t due, even with nostalgia added into the mix.

It would be better to remove all the unpractical and/or bad designs sticking out and have fewer people in the Palace, than a bunch of “im a man in a suit” to take you completely out of the movie and ruin suspension of disbelief. We mustn’ forget that this is the ending chapter (or was, that is) of the Saga, and to have the supposedly thrilling and action-packed opening sequence be dragged down by a bunch of bad and lazy designs will ruin the rest of the experience - especially with the introdution of the Ewooks just 30 minutes later. You could instead rely on sound design to make the Palace more crowded and its inhabitants be a little bit more “everywhere”, as in there are more rooms nearby in which aliens party and talk.

I’ve kept the pool reflection, but not when Bughuul turns to the camera, so you can only see a shadow and half of its face. I think its more effective as you can’t make out if its a person, a ghost or what the hell is it.

Hmm, It might be an improvement. Sometimes, indeed, the “less is more” can be the more effective.
I’m looking forward to checking it out.

How will you handle the ending?

(AVAILABLE) SINISTER: Recut
Time

This movie, and this comes from a complete horror fanatic since the age of six, had the potential to be the best horror movie I’ve ever seen. The first hour of the movie is, except a few lackluster scares and/or character flaws, pure gold. Three things ruined it;

  • Too much nonsense near the end started ruining the very well-paced mood.
  • The ending with the children (children, unfortunately, often lack the ability to be scary - few exceptions, being the Babadook for instance).
  • Things you just mentioned.

However, I don’t know which scenes of the entitity you’re talking about removing, but the one where he’s in the pool and turns his head towards the camera should definitely be in.

STAR WARS: Episode I - THE ANCIENT LORE [Episode I Remade /Proj started: 2014]

Really excited for this!

EDIT:

The first clip is edited really well, except for the constant shot reuse and lack of spacial awareness. Are they going towards the planet or away? Are they in the middle of space or are they next to a planet? Etc.

I really like the writing for the Nemoidians, they seem genuinely threatening.

Yes, I’ve been thinking about replacing the background planet with starfields, or simply re-grade and re-color it to be another. I don’t think this would’ve been much of a problem if people just assumed it was another planet than Naboo, but seeing how everyone know it isn’t - it might be a tad too confusing.

Thanks for your positive feedback! I look forward to pleasing both you and @Smithers.

STAR WARS: Episode I - THE ANCIENT LORE [Episode I Remade /Proj started: 2014]
Time

Star Wars - Episode I: The Ancient Lore

Episode I is the best-looking of the three prequels, with a lot of devotion put into them from both the crew, actors as well as the director himself before he went all ludacris on digital moviemaking. It is also the most dull of the three prequels, with little to no character motivation or even plot explanation.

This project was started at fanedit ORG in around 2014, but was abandoned due to hardware loss. It got re-started somewhere around early 2015. The entire purpose of this edit is to re-make the entire movie into a very interesting and exciting piece of cinema, with the very best of my ability to make it into a coherent Star Wars addition, full of wonder, mystery, compelling characters and life.

[The Changes]

  • There are more new visual effects than i can count, and many alterations to both audio (voice and alien language) as well as music and sound effects.
  • The movie is heavily re-scored.
  • The movie is about 50-60% replaced with a self-created audiomix for a lot of different scenes.
  • Story narrative completely altered. The beginning of the movie in the Trade Federation Ship now takes place in the middle of the movie, and the story now starts with a Space chase, Naboo and the saving of the Queen.
  • Appearances of Lord Sidious will have his hologram face hidden for a duration of the beginning to create mystery, as well as his hologram voice altered and new plot points given.
  • The Nemodians (Nute Gunray & Co.) speak in foreign Alien language, to give of new and menacing voices, as well as completely new plot points for the story.
  • The Purple saber of Mace Windu will be removed in my trilogy, and given to Qui-Gon. It makes him more important, and fits his rogue style as he choses not to be on the Jedi Council. Mace Windu will get green.
  • Jar-Jar Binks has a new, altered voice (might consider a re-dub of the character before an initial release).
  • Battle Droids has a new voice, but hardly ever speak.
  • Jar-Jar Binks will serve as comic relief, although appearances or voice from him that diminish an important character or story moment, will be removed or decreased. His presence is that of C-3PO in A New Hope; he’s there, but he doesn’t take up screentime that he does not deserve.
  • Qui-Gon is the main character of the story. This is very clear throughout. Obi-Wan and Anakin are side-characters that will get to shine a little bit throughout, but are part of a bigger puzzle to occur in the later entries of the trilogy.
  • Anakin has, to the very best of my ability, become a very strict, grown-up kid with a lot of personality. This comes across in his dialogue with Wattoo and Sebulba, as well as his lack of stupid lines or groans or unecessary screentime. There are neither any accidents in his actions.
  • Anakin is not any chosen one, and his father died gambling. His mother is all he has. Anakin and Padme’s love theme is given to Anakin and his mom and their relationship.
  • Darth Maul has a lot more screentime and presence throughout.

[PLOT EXPLANATION]
The Nemodians have gathered political supporters, systems, planets - and most importantly - techonology and intelligence - through the co-operation with Palpatine, aka. Lord Sidious, for years. Naboo is the movie’s target for invasion, because this is where Palpatine sees fit to create his Clone Army; Naboo has everything they need - the huge space travel gap between them and the Republic, and all the resources needed.

STAR WARS: EP V &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>AVAILABLE NOW</strong>
Time

I haven’t been updated throughly on the 1400 pages here, but there is a pretty damn good Wampa full-body costume on sale here in Norway in my local antique, movie-geek store.

When The Empire Strikes Back Hoth Battle scenes were shot here in Norway, it created Star Wars fuzz here as well. That resulted in the making of a lot of costumes for the Wampa to sell as merchandise upon the films release, called the “Norwegian Wampa” and some simply “The Wampa”. There are a lot of them still around.

I love how everyone makes up their own stories and reasons as to why the ANH saber fight doesn’t look like shit - when it does, and the only reason is because they were limited to the extent they had to do slow movements close to eachother to not destroy the props and/or the glowing effect.

It had nothing to do with “Vader is being restricted because his last fight didn’t go so well”. Or “Vader is testing his ground”. They were simply restricted; end of story.
