Game of Thrones: An Honorable Cut was made as an alternative way of watching the Game
of Thrones series with all the gratuitous sex, nudity, torture, weak storylines, and overall cheapness taken out. Please message me to download!
I have taken all 8 seasons of Game of Thrones and edited it down into 30 “chapters”, each the length of a feature length movie, ranging from 1:30 to 2:14 hours. Each “chapter” focuses on the stories of a select few characters, with an overarching theme given in the title of the chapter. I have made sure to tell the story in a linear fashion that makes sense in itself and keep everything that is best about the series in. This does not mean I’ve taken out all sex, nudity and violence, because sometimes it is justifiable to keep the story going, and sometimes it has a strong dramatic effect. I have mainly taken it out when it cheapens the effect, or makes for weak storytelling.
Overall I have cut the series down from 4214 minutes to 3151 minutes, roughly trimmed it by about 25%.
I’d recommend watching this if you’ve either:
Seen the Game of Thrones series and you want to rewatch it, but don’t want to relive all the cheap, ridiculousness and silly plot points of seasons 6-8 and all the gratuitous sex, torture and nudity of seasons 1-5.
Haven’t seen the Game of Thrones series, and you’re into fantasy series’ like Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter, but you’re put off by some of the criticism that the show has had about sexual violence/rape scenes and poor writing towards the end. This new edit can’t undo some of the bad writing of seasons 7 - 8. The reason why these seasons weren’t as good was mainly down to too much happening to quickly, and it is impossible to fix that through cutting, I have instead kept all the strongest material from these seasons that keeps the story going, and taken out all the extra bits.
I don’t know how to submit fan edits to this website - this is the first thing I’ve done, so please PM me for a download link/let me know how I can submit this somehow.
Just a heads up - the version I have of this has fixed english subtitles in Chapters 26 - 30, this is from an issue I had with ripping the video. I am looking into this issue though and it should be resolved by the end of May, so anyone starting the series now should be able to have the resolved final chapters by the time they get up to them!
The whole series is also in SD, not HD, as it was ripped from DVD rather than Blu-ray, so it is to be enjoyed in the same way you might have enjoyed the old Lord of the Rings series when you first watched it on DVD.
