I like to see a HD2DVD preservation of Gleaming the Cube with a second disc of bonus martials including any found footage from TV shows and documentaries on skating (especially interviews with Stacy P., Mark Gator, and Tony Hawk) and scans of articles from all the skater mags at the time of it's release.

I must have been sleeping on this one, how can I get ahold of "Attack of the Phantom", who made it and is there a thread discussing the changes? Thanks

I may have mentioned this already in this thread (my apologies if so) but I would love to see an edit of Tombstone with as much of the Dana Delaney character removed as possible. Tombstone De-laney-fied.

A "24" Movie Edit


I just about finished the first season of the hit show "24", and I think this shows first season could be cut down into a few action packed feature length films. It would not have that real time aspect, but It may work as well as any "The Bourne Identity " type movie.

Any "24" fans willing to take this on?

CSI:Las Vagas has had two or three story lines that have covered more than one episode and season. It would be cool to see those stories presented as one feature. The bathtub guy, The crazy Red haired girl, the hooker that get's killed, Sam Braun, etc.

Tombstone - anyone done it / planning to do it / thought about it at all [aside from ron's idea] ? specifically alterations to the audio. It's bad enough [DVD] in places to stop me from enjoying parts of the movie. Was just thinking about it and thought I'd check in...

The Discotek release of the infamous EBOLA SYNDROME features, for the first time ever, the long-thought lost deleted shots containing the more... extreme moments of the film, removed prior to release. Sadly, they exist only in compilation form as an extra feature. They are, however, provided in high quality anamorphic video. To re-insert the scenes into the main feature, there may or may not be some colour matching involved and there is also the added challenge of dealing with subtitles but if anyone out there is game to try it, I'd be happy to provide a copy of the disc. I can't imagine why Discotek didn't do this themselves but that's the way it goes in the DVD business, sometimes, I guess.

I would love to see a hi def version of The Good The Bad and The Ugly, unextended. As in the the version that was originally released in the U.S. in 1966. I saw the extended version and it really doesn't seem to be necessary. The visuals from the added scenes don't look the same as the rest of the film and the audio dubbing doesn't sound right either cause Eastwood and Wallach just put their voices on those scenes recently for that new version and are much older now. Lee Van Cleef wasn't even alive to dub his voice in so they had to get some other actor to do it. I've heard these scenes were in the original italian release but having grown up watching the U.S. release, I just feel that's the way it should be. I've read that the italian blu ray release: Il Buono, il brutto, il cattivo is a better quality remastering so maybe someone could use that as a source and take the audio from the original english version since the italian version has no english audio and put it together to make a quality version for those of us who like the film the way it was. THANKS!

25. Arthur's line "To the pit!" from Theatrical version has been reinserted among other things.

Don't know if this has been thought of before, but how about an edit of Star Wars that incorporates the prequel movies as "Lost-style" flashbacks? Maybe even cut it up into TV sized pieces?

A few things I have been considering doing

Repo men fanedit -changing the start to the motion comic and removing the stupid ending as well as trying to rearrange for a bit more suspense and a darker tone.

Boondock Saints 2 - just be a cleanup to improve pacing of first half of the movie and to remove as much of the annoying chick as possible

 

Anyone wants to help me these let me know

cheers

I know this is old but stumbled upon this post while searching for this type of edit…> FanFiltration said:

Funny you should bring up “Starship Troopers”.
As a little side project, I had been working on a fast moving striped down version of "ROUGHNECKS: Starship Troopers Chronicles”. I’ve got most of the “Pluto Campaign” cut so far. The computer art version of “Starship Troopers” is so much better then the live action films. Now with all the other projects I’ve taken on, ROUGHNECKS has somehow been put on hiatus. Hope I can get back to it soon.

I want to make an edit of the Evil Dead remake which eliminates the terrible Deadite swearing, cuts out the opening, makes the characters less annoying, and changes the colour pallette to make it more in line with the original.

In Despecialized Star Wars… how much effort would it take to switch the Yavin base shot with the special edition’s one? I would much rather look at the CGI wall instead of the blank grey one.

http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/9/9d/Yavin_4_Temple.png/revision/latest?cb=20121227220518

…and in Despecialized Empire Strikes Back, I would like to switch the SE Emperor hologram with the original’s monkey face.

Would these changes mess up with the frames / subtitles etc with the rest of the movies? I mean… are the special edition shots longer than the original ones? The Emperor one might be a problem since the dialogue and everything is different?

Not much. You can use your own editing software and create your own version which is what I did with Harmy’s Star Wars Despecialized. I swapped in the SE Alderaan and Death Star explosions, as well as the X-wing shots in and around Yavin. It was easy.

…and in Despecialized Empire Strikes Back, I would like to switch the SE Emperor hologram with the original’s monkey face.

You might want to consider swapping in Adywan’s hologram for the Emperor. I just finished editing Empire Strikes Back Despecialized, and I really considered that choice heavily; however, I elected to just stick with the original. All of Adywan’s versions are an improvement over the 2004 SE hologram and offer continuity compared to the original, but ultimately I decided the final version Adywan put out with the whole scene just wasn’t enough of a homerun for me to justify the edit. I wish he would have done something more like what he did in the trailer he put out. Anyway, I was really unsure about this one so I elected to defer to the creative decisions of the brilliant people who made the original film.

Would these changes mess up with the frames / subtitles etc with the rest of the movies? I mean… are the special edition shots longer than the original ones? The Emperor one might be a problem since the dialogue and everything is different?

Most of the edits are very easy and just require swapping shots in and out. However, some edits may require experience and creativity. I will give you some examples:

-On Hoth, some of the speeder shots don’t look good anymore. I swapped them in with BluRay footage, and these edits were extremely easy. Assuming you cut the edits in the right places, you won’t even notice while watching.

-On Cloud City, when the Falcon lands there is a wipe in the frame rather than a camera cut, and so editing around the wipe or creating your own wipe requires a little more effort than say the snow speeder edits I did earlier in the movie, especially if you want it to look seamless and good.

-Later on, there is the shot with Leia in the window right before Lando’s betrayal. The original shot looks very dated and bad to me, so I edited in the SE version, but it comes with all of Lucas’s usual CGI quackery, which I didn’t want or need. Of course, you could just edit in the entire SE sequence which would be the quick and easy path, but it’s really out of place in the film if you ask me.

What I did was I only used the SE shot from the window’s exterior, and all of that other junk with ships flying around a fake computer-looking city I cut out. That edit requires creativity though because as you alluded to, the timing is off between the two versions and therefore the soundtrack won’t match. I had to cut the new shot into the right place to match with the sound effects of the escort ship flying by, but then there was dead space until the camera cuts into the room with Han and Leia. Luckily, there was a moment while Leia was pacing around where she briefly stopped in the room–it was at that point I spliced the shot and slowed the rest down to match the timeline and get the sequence back to the correct timing.

-Finally, I edited in the shot of Vader’s shuttle flying to the Executor, but not the scene from ROTJ where he lands and disembarks that stops the whole movie in its tracks. This was the most difficult and time consuming edit I did on either film, because the soundtracks are mismatched when you add in a whole new scene with different musical timing. But, after some persistence and a few tries, I was able to finish it perfectly.

I’d love to see an edit of Star Wars : Attack of the Clones that removes the awful sandpeople subplot. I’ve always seen this plot point as useless to the series and Anakin becoming Darth Vader. I thought he was supposed to be a good guy that became evil? Anakin killing them just makes it look like he was never good and was evil from the beginning

I just don’t get why a lot of people like this subplot

About a week ago I watched the Kevin Costner film Mr. Brooks. I’ve seen the movie a couple times now, think it’s pretty good, but don’t care for the character of Tracy Atwell. I’m also none too keen on the overall look of the film.

Essentially, what I envision in my mind is a fan-edit of Mr. Brooks that completely excises Atwell from the movie; the narrative would be told completely from Brooks’ POV – keeping a tight focus on his conflicts with Marshall and Smith and the problems with his daughter – without Atwell’s diversionary side story detracting from the main plot.

Furthermore, I’d re-render most of the film in black and white, to amp up the film noir quality. Only a select few items associated with violence and death – the murdered redhead’s hair, Marshall’s clothing, Jane’s lips, and the blood – would be in colour (all red).

My working title for this fan-edit would be Thumbprint. (Not very imaginative, I know.)

Blue Yoda made an edit of true romance following the script by Tarintino. He did a good job but the soundtrack is anything but tarintinoesqe
I have been thinking about this for a while now, also it needs edited down as blue Yoda cut is pretty well every scene and it could be trimmed up Christian slater just isn’t up to the acting level of everyone else, well maybe Bronson pinchot, haha and the opening credits suck, the talk about fn elvis, comic store get the ax. And if possible change what Brad Pitts watching from days of Thunder to my best friends birthday scenes.

Now… go do my bidding…

I know there have been some edits of The Lord of the Rings, which seek to alter Jackson’s trilogy into something more in line with Tolkien’s book(s). However, something just as interesting would be reconstruct the films’ original cuts, before the pick-ups took place and the storyline was altered. It’s known to us the extended cuts still omit much footage, of which we’ve seen fragments in trailers, featurettes and stills.

While the shooting scripts are nowhere to be found (only transcripts matching the finished films are available), it could be possible, thanks to the clues found in the audio commentaries and liner notes from the OST, to try and put the available scenes back into their original sequence. Explainatory cards and subtitles could fill in any unavailable footage.
