This edit needs a lot more work than just a sound modification, lots of hard cuts with minimal if no transitions to cover the joints, some parts were out of synch, the use of “Black Suits Comin” didn’t completely drown out the established background music in the suit-up scene, there’s a bit near the end where K is clearly saying something but we miss what it is entirely.

It has legs though, the ideas are strong, and if the cuts could be smoothed over, I think you’ve definitely got an improved movie here, something more in line with the spirit of the original movies, and T saving the day is actually a much better ending and shows how flimsily tacked on the original climax was.

So yeah, cut it together a bit better and you’d be good to go.

I’ve cut things better, and alerted things so that the transactions look smoother. Ex, Shots of M sitting still, instead of half spinning that it was, and L has a reaction shot to M’s admittance that she’s a nobody.

I cut out as much of the og music from the suit-up scene but some still remains, what ever was behind L’s words. And I’ve fixed the driving scene to remove that music and added in my own car noises. Now you don’t hear that song at all.

K wasn’t originally saying anything, i just wanted to have it be a smooth transition of him walking away from the tv. I’ve now added in him saying “No” originally in the scene he says “wermguys” but now J says “looks like Spielberg’s work”. K replies “No”

Also the white fads have been fixed.

And yeah, MiBI had a lot of bad reshoots and on set rewrites by the actress that played M, and Chris didn’t like her changes and changed things back. That’s why H isn’t always an idiot in the original. The ending was changed and was the main reason for the late game reshoots. Between the studio meddling and the ego of the actress it’s amazing the film was even released.

for some reason my comment was a repot and not a reply, my bad
