The Legend of the Magnificent Seven (Fan Edit of the 2016 Magnificent Seven)

Hello! I have a thread going at as well about this project I’ve been working on.

Here are the three things I am aiming to accomplish with my edit:

  1. Replace some of the film score with the original 1960’s score by Elmer Bernstein
  2. Insert 3 of the 4 deleted scenes from the home release (the Goodnight deleted scene serves little to no purpose)
  3. Rid the film of any indication that Sam Chisolm’s motivation is purely out of revenge. It doesn’t feel right that he would drag these 6 other men and a town of innocent people into his own personal fight against Bogue without them knowing it.

I’m happy to share more of what I’ve done up to this point as well as a cut list if there seems to be some interest.

Here is a link to a clip from my edit:

Jaws/Jaws 2 extended editions

On I had a thread about doing a Jaws 2 Extended as well as a trimmed down version of the film. There are parts where I felt the movie really could use some trimming and there were a few too many fake outs on potential victims, plus too much time with the kids. The Extended version I was working on had some rough deleted scenes, but it was still going to add about 4.5 mins to the overall film. I stopped due to a computer issue mixed with my editing software, but I’ll be getting back to it soon.

Star Trek Fan Edits

Star Trek: Bugs

This was a 20 minute mash up of OS footage with the bugs from Starship Troopers. Quite a fun experience!

ACTION HERO (Last Action Hero Fan Edit)

In re-watching Last Action Hero and reading about the troubles it had along with watching some reviews on YouTube, I felt that as an Arnold fan I should give this a crack. One of the things that bothered me was that as the movie went along, Jack’s life didn’t seem all that great in the movie, which we saw in his apartment and when he spoke of paying a cashier to call him at work. Also, dog pyramid? I also wanted to try and make things a little more believable in the real world, but that was hard to do with what I had to work with, but why was Death allowed to walk around NYC and retain his powers while Jack was mortally wounded? Anyway, here is my cut list of the edit I’ve done:

-Cut the robbery scene in Danny’s apartment (didn’t add anything to the movie outside of the keys for the cuffs later which has been rectified)
-Cut the reference to Danny being late to the theater since the robbery scene is gone
-Cut Lethal Weapon reference to the cop who dies in the tree 2 days before retirement (no sax riff)
-Cut “I’m a kid” line as Danny lands in Jack’s car
-Cut Sharon Stone and Robert Patrick cameo since T-1000 and Catherine Tremmel don’t exist in JACK’s world. Because it was a moving shot, I cut the exterior as well as Danny looking around because he mentions how he was recently in a police station which calls back to the earlier scene I cut about Danny’s apartment being robbed
-No cartoon cat or mention of him (sorry Danny DeVito)
-Cut the dog pyramid (ugh)
-When Slater is remembering the ending to Slater III it cuts away to him at a news stand and then back to the ending again. It was a bit jarring, so now we will just see the full ending play out and then cut back to Danny and Whitney talking about the son
-When Slater jumps off the balcony, cut the over the top Olympic diving moves. Just not necessary. Jack jumps and we see him coming down in slow motion then we cut back to Danny grabbing the bicycle
-No ET reference. Now Danny will glide off the road and just crash the bike with Jack cringing
-Cut the captains head steaming as he yells as Slater and Danny. Most of the yelling happens off screen with the focus on Jack and Danny
-Cut out the random Bogart cameo
-Trimmed Jack’s apartment scene where he isn’t reflecting on how bad his life actually is. This meant cutting the reference to his ex-wife being happily remarried and he pays someone to call him at work. I always HATED that and felt it was TOO real for his movie world. Now he is just bummed about losing his badge and how Whitney is not the most normal of daughters
-Trimmed the Practice betrayal so it looks like Danny pulling the gun on him saves Slater and doesn’t involve the handcuffs or cartoon cat. The scene itself is great, but the cartoon cat needed to go.
-Cut all scenes of Death (I had a way of cutting it so Danny has a eureka moment and goes for the other half of the ticket without needing Death to tell him)
-Changed title within the credits from Last Action Hero to Action Hero
-Changed music during credits so we start with an AC/DC song then the rest of the credits use some of the very cool score that was composed by Michael Kamen, including Jack’s theme

I wanted to rework Jack throwing Danny while they were hanging from the theater in our world, but as much as I tried different things with slow-mo and reverse shots I just couldn’t get it right, so it had to stay in. Plus, Benedict needed to explode because it was how I explained them losing that half of the magic ticket without showing it falling or leaving it open-ended.

I’d be happy to share this with anyone interested. I need some people to preview and give suggestions.

Original running time: 130 minutes

Payback (1999)
If I can get a copy of the work print, then I am hoping to do a fan edit combining all 3 versions and then changing around the music into a 70's feel and make the picture grainy so it has a an old grindhouse feel to it.
