Men in Black: Intergalactic Duology by Bobson Dugnutt

A favourite of mine, Men In Black is just one of those movies that only ever worked properly with just the one entry, all the other sequels, while enjoyable, often fall short of the mark, the edit for the first of these movies enhances and adds to what is already a very good and workable movie, Bobson adds in alternate scenes and expands others to give you an insight into the film’s original vision. The scenes added are of a more raw visual quality but do not distract and are very well integrated.

This is definitely one of a thousand memories that I still want.

Superman IV: The Quest For Closure (a WIP)
Time

I’ve always wanted to give Christopher Reeve’s Superman saga some genuine climax, so I decided to create a proof-of-concept workprint edition of Superman IV using some of the deleted scenes (I don’t have the skills to polish them up, so if you do see this, you’ll just have to grin and bear it) as well as some footage from the Richard Donner Cut of Superman II. As a result, the workprint requires a significant amount of suspension of disbelief to buy into the narrative being told. Wardrobe continuity is taken for granted here.

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century: Planet of the Slave Girls - Slavery & Sorcery by Lapis Molari

This edit provides yet another bang for your Buck (oh me and my puns), a lot of very professional adjustments are made to this version, you would think it was a minimalist edit given how seamless it all meshes. The final battle changes in particular were a delight as the use of shots from other episodes are used to enhance, add, replace and improve on the established shots in a very creative way. There are also continuity patches that show a considerate attention to detail and respect for the audience’s intelligence. This is definitely one of the best Buck Rogers edits you’ll find out there.

Good idea for a thread, I’ll leave some of my recent recommendations

Ghostbusters 2: Time is But a Window by Bobson Dugnutt

Bobson’s skills are put to good use on another memorable movie…Ghostbusters 2 is just as much fun as the original in my opinion, and the enhancements made to the feature here provide more mayhem and fun to a feature already packed with both punch and punchline. The skill in which the Louis and Slimer scenes are realised compared to the original workprint is a masterclass.

The integrated scenes can’t unfortunately be entirely cleared of visible workprint scratches, and they provide a tiny little distraction, and from them you can easily tell when you’re watching something added in, but what makes all the difference is the consistency of the audio quality bridging it all together, they’re crisp and clear.

If you’re a fan of Ghostbusters 2 and wish to see even more of it, I would recommend tracking this down.

Power Rangers Wild Force: Forever Red-End of Season Edition (Released)
Time

I’m currently editing several Power Rangers episodes, and the one I’ve been most pleased so far with is the one I’ve done for “Forever Red” the 10th anniversary story from 2002. I’ve repurposed it so it now serves not just as a finale to Power Rangers Wild Force (in place of the “Tnd of the Power Rangers” two-parter) but also a prequel to 2009’s Power Rangers RPM, which at the time was intended to be the last season.

Changes

  1. Added “Previously On…” montage depicting Master Org’s ultimate defeat

  2. Added Cole saying goodbye to Red Lion

  3. Forever Red plays as normal

  4. Added scenes of Cole making peace with his parents’ memory as well as Victor Adlers’ as well Allisa telling the class of what happened to the Rangers afterwards, all taken from “The End of the Power Rangers Part Two”. The scenes where they give up their growl phones and powers has been removed to give you the hope they will eventually return to active Ranger duty.

  5. Special epilogue created for the ending using footage and audio from the RPM title sequence and the episode “Road to Corinth”

Here’s the ‘next time’ I used (password: fanedit)

The 'Final' Season Of The Simpsons (Possible Team Project?)
Time

Great list there, I’ve fortunately managed to see about 25% of the episodes listed there. I’d probably still swap around some of the episodes so there’s a stronger lead-up to “Behind The Laughter”, maybe “The Cartridge Family” before it, and I’d probably shift “City of New York Vs Homer Simpson” in there too as a penultimate episode, since the car gets totalled.

For the “Sexy Flanders” scene, maybe we could edit in a brief sub-plot for the Simpsons where they find Ned on the slope and him fitting into the jumpsuit is one of his ways of ‘coping’ with Maude’s death?

Doctor Who
Time

Thought I’d drop by with a few thoughts

I don’t mind the Morbius Doctors inclusion or the lore alterations, but I also understand how deeply upsetting it is for many fans who have grown up with the show facing a change on this scale. It’s the most sizemic we’ve had since the publication of Lungbarrow. Some believe this will go away like the half-human thing did, but I don’t personally feel like there’s a point to decanonising something of this size. Better to embrace a new idea than hold on so tightly to lore that at one point, was also pulled out of nowhere to keep the show interesting.

Jodie unfortunately hasn’t been ‘owning it’ as The Doctor all season and I fail to see how anyone is getting the impression she is putting in an effort. She is a woefully unprepared actress and Jo Martin’s Ruth Doctor acted the socks off of her in comparison. The Doctor had very little authority in this series and felt too much like a victim of circumstances. Ruth’s Doctor was in far more control of a room and a situation that she was.

The 'Final' Season Of The Simpsons (Possible Team Project?)
Time

Barthood could be the penultimate episode I suppose, as far as chronological placement goes.

I just remembered that Lisa is in a relationship with Nelson by the end of Barthood, but married to Milhouse by the start of “Holidays…”, we still don’t have a clear idea of when Lisa finally chose to have a family with Milhouse in between that in the series.

I know there was one modern series episode where Lisa finally kissed Milhouse, but that’s when they were still kids.

I’ve been considering using some Grevious lines from the game to replace the redunant lightsaber collection line and tried out a few here.

Thoughts?

I can audibly tell when the sound bites occur (presume that’ll eventually be smoothed over), but yeah, that was timed well

Do you prefer either line (the pathetic one or the lightsaber one)

I’ll go with the “pathetic” line, it sounds more confrontational

That’s an interesting idea. Like I said last time, though, I think you have to define your goals a little more clearly here if this is an actual project you want to kick off. Where would you want potential viewers to stop watching the official series and start watching this fan-made final season? Again, for me, I would keep seasons 1-8 as they are and then build a final season on the bones of season 9.

But another good place to start is, what’s your series finale? Who Shot Mr. Burns is a pretty solid candidate for that, actually. Considering it’s a two parter. But would you be worried about killing off a character or doing something drastic considering The Simpsons Movie? I think it’s pretty good (better than the show had been for a few years prior to its release) and I wouldn’t want to mess with that.

I’ve actually edited The Simpsons Movie, I turned it into a 60-minute special, it’s listed on Fanedit.org

https://ifdb.fanedit.org/simpsons-finest-hour-the/

If so inclined, this could be a potential candidate for our ‘finale’ as it fits a tidy extended TV format.

For me personally, The Simpsons ended with “Homer’s Enemy”, where Homer’s role in the Springfield community is truly defined in itself. He’s largely found acceptance amongst them they find joy in his bungling, entertainment in his idiocy. When Homer says “Change the Channel Marge” in his sleep, that’s basically a command to the audience to just stop watching the show, it’s peaked. This is where I would advise people to stop following the official seasons and from there enjoy the fan-made ‘final’ season

I was also thinking we could somehow edit The Simpsons Arcade Game into a workable “gimmick” episode, or a short for the ‘final’ Treehouse of Horror.

I like this idea. I guess the first question is when do you think The Simpsons stopped being good? For me the last great season is 8. But there are some gems in season 9, more than any subsequent season (do to it including some holdover episodes from season 8). Off the top of my head I like the NYC one, ‘Realty Bites’ and ‘Cartridge Family’.

I think it’s important to have a Treehouse episode (you could mix and match the segments from different years). There should also be a Sideshow Bob episode. Not sure which I would pick. And it’s a good idea to get as much Phil Hartman as possible (his last appearance is in season 10).

As for closure, that’s a good point. I think the one where Maude Flanders dies would probably be a good inclusion (even if it’s a little depressing). Also ‘Behind the Laughter’ feels like a final season kind of episode. Not sure how far into the series you want to go, in terms of matching SD/HD episodes, but I vaguely remember there being some decent stuff in season 20 that could give a good sense of finality.

There’s “Holidays of Future Present”, which to my understanding was deemed the ‘canonical’ conclusion to the show out of all the ‘future’ episodes they’ve done, but theree’s also “Barthood”, which I often felt was the more believable ending out of the two.

Sideshow Bob wound up having a family, but that ended up being ignored with subsequent appearances. I always felt like “Brother From Another Series” was the natural ending for Bob’s character, as he does a lot of redeeming things in that episode, he and Bart work together etc. Maybe an alternative ending could be given to that episode as it originally ends with Bob being incarcerated again.

Another idea I had would be to trim half of “Homer’s Enemy” off and join it up with it’s follow-up where his son is out for revenge on Homer and Sideshow Bob helps the family track down the culprit.

Pacing wise I don’t think including the whole fight would work, I’m thinking more colour corrected flashes of Vader from the fan film saying Ben and other relevent dialogue like “come to me” etc when he touches the wayfinder. Could even get a shot of Kylo’s saber decapitating him in there.

Yes, it’d be more a ‘vanity vision’ for Kylo, it could mostly use the bits where Ben has the upper hand (maybe Vader’s force choke on him can stay, but not much else), as that’s what Kylo has in the opening raid. He gets stronger as the wayfinder calls to him/ultimately challenges him

Maybe even similar to Harry Potter walking back through Hogwarts after the big battle.

Maybe change the colour correcting to Red, Mustafar.

I doubt it but maybe there’s a way to splice the Mustafar raid with the Kylo v. Vader fan film to make it seem like while he’s fighting that giant group he’s actually just envisioning taking down Vader?

Maybe Vader is a projection of the Wayfinder? When Ren defeats him, he opens the casket and removes it?

There’s a post-credit scene in the fan film where Kylo is about to remove his helmet, so that would help with maintaining continuity.
