 (Edited)

Name inspired by Greencapt’s “Batman & Robin: De-Assified”

What is there to say about Batman returns that hasn’t already been said? It’s basically a good Tim Burton film but as a Batman film it falls short in that to a degree,So in my cut i aim to remove alot of the weirdness Burton implemented & tried to make more on the level of Batman 89’s status but of course some things had to stay for counuity sake but i think i managed to make Returns more presentable as a Batman film.

ADDITIONS

-Batman 89 sound effects
-Moon transition shots from FT13 Part 1
-Sleepy hollow expanded score
-Few deleted & alternate scenes from trailers & the making of Returns
-News reporter mentioning the events from 89
-Batman Returns expanded score

CHANGES

-Restored the film’s original timeline

DELETION
-Penguin “eating” the family cat
-Cats resurrecting Selina
-Shreck & Chip’s convo about Selina
-Penguin biting guys nose
-Catwoman swallowing live bird & everything the follows until penguin’s announcement on tv
-Catwoman’s “suit up” sequence
-Catwoman screaming in the greenhouse
-Bruce making up his mind about going to Max’s party
-Batman finding Shreck’s cooked corpse
-Catwoman looking at the batsignal

I’ll be providing the link to my edit either today or tomorrow (depending how fast my internet is) once it’s uploaded to MEGA so until keep it frosty people!

You either die a trilogy or live long enough to see yourself become batman & robin.

I don’t know why you would cut Penguin biting that guys nose.

Working on many edits, may take many years to complete…

I dunno i always found that moment rather unnecessary granted it’s darkly funny but again no point for it other than for a “surprise bitch!” moment.

EDIT

The edit is done uploading however i need to ask if it’s okay to post the link to edit on here rather then asking people to message me for it.

Hold on, Returns had a different timeline as well?

Yeah after reading the script a few scenes were switched around for some odd reason but i fixed it in my cut.

Ah, I see. Plus, I see you’ve found some deleted/alternate scenes from the promo material and BTS documentaries. 😃

I’d like a link to this!
Hopefully your changes can make me appreciate the film a bit more, still can’t go back to Keaton after getting so attached to Kilmer, and I film this film to be too Batshit and too Burton to be a Batman film.

Watching your cut right now, and so far it’s your crowning achievement of awesome! The way you edited around the opening scene, Penguin biting the guy’s nose, Selina’s resurrection and Batman finding Shreck’s corpse is seamless in many ways! Well done! 😄

Plus, it’s nearing October, which means we’ll be seeing an update on Batman Forever: The Tim Burton Cut shortly! And maybe, just maybe, you could think over your doing an “editor’s cut” of BF. 😃

Overall, I give your edit a 9/10. Keep it up! ^^

the Penguin remains more of a cardboard cut-out than a fish-and-blood character impersonating nightmares, and even the slightly surprising sexual passages between Batman and Catwoman (there’s a lick rather than a kiss) seem more like sparring than the real thing.

Only the special effects impart the true liveliness the proceedings need, but that’s par for too many courses nowadays to represent Burton adequately. Style and content have to match.

Maybe he was trapped in this enormous film, like many have been before him. Possibly, the fantasy has a slight case of Hollywood elephantitis. Whatever the reason, Batman Returns, for all its efforts at being different and better, remains beached in its clever settings and cheap psychological insights.

It’s the kind of film which has great stills but never quite comes alive when it actually moves - likely to win at the box-office quicker than it does in the mind. Which, considering what Burton is capable of, may not ultimately be the best bargain, except on the way to the bank or the bargaining positions for the inevitable Batman III.

So i take it you didn’t like my edit then?
