The Last Jedi - 'The End' Edition' (V1 NOW COMPLETE!) (Released)
Time

Well does the job and I can’t fault it on a technical level…if there’s one thing I’d change is that the “rebellion is reborn today” line could be cut, unless you were trying to indicate the rebellion rose up and quickly brought the rest of the First Order to heel…there’s nothing to really rebel against with Snoke gone and Kylo proving to be a feeble obstacle. Might as well just say “I will not be the last jedi”.

Other than that, it’s very good, shows how needless ROS really is, and we’re better without it.

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

Good list, particularly like the inclusion of the last couple of Mona Simpson episodes. I actually think both could be re-edited into one story, taking the best moments from each and creating the definitive tragic finish to her story.

24 Minutes is another good choice, I remember watching that one summer and really enjoying it, I’d place it closer to the end of the season as it’s a pretty high-stake story and one of the last times, at least as far as I remember, that Bart was sort of a savy psudeo-action hero in the series.

Are there any Sideshow Bob episodes in that list I should be aware of? It’s alright if there isn’t any included, because I always felt his closure came with “Brother From Another Series” and that was covered by a previous season.

Thanks for directing me to the Embiggened project Kaarma, I’ll look into it.

Continuity wise, I would definitely like half of the season to form closure of some sort for characters, as much as the status quo allows really…anything else could just be carefully manipulated editing, taking things from stories that LOOK to disrupt the status quo, and actually do as opposed to being reversed by the end of the episode.

Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie: Happy Edit After (Released)
Time

Nothing too radical about this one, there’s just one cut, one tiny cut, and the rest of the film is the same and plays as normal. The trim in question was Helga’s reaction to Arnold holding her hand towards the end…in the original version, she plays hard to get and tells Arnold off for touching her before walking ahead of him keeping a smile to herself, with Arnold also smiling and taking the rejection in his stride.

From my understanding, this twist was done as a tease for potential future seasons where Helga would continue to hide her feelings for Arnold from her class and Arnold would have to deal with being in a secret relationship with her, but Nickelodeon passed on the opportunity for future episodes, so the ending comes off as a bit mean-spirited and confusing considering they’d both went through hell in the film and earned their romantic moment.

So yeah, all I did was remove Helga telling Arnold off, after Helga initially swoons happily at the gesture, we cut to the two catching up to Phobe and Gerald just before Arnold’s parents ask if they can follow them to school. That’s it, the show ends with Helga content to be in a relationship with the boy she hates yet loves.

PM me for the link.

The Rise of Skywalker: RESURGENCE (Released)
Time

I’ve seen this, and…yeah it’s not too bad at all. I had seen a critique of it over on reddit, but chose to view the edit first before comparing mine with it, there were, I feel continuity issues with the intel on the final order, and Kylo’s interaction with Palpatine the first time we see him in this edit didn’t feel right…for example, he’s supposed to be in communication with him early one, then the next he’s looking for a way to find him on Exogel (wayfinder), should’nt he be aware of where he is? Would’nt it be better if you didn’t show Kylo obtaining the wayfinder and he already has it and is simply on his way to visit Palpatine? Could we cut him threatening Palpatine with his sabre while he speaks in that scene?

Wish you could also find ways of having Ben accompany Rey to Tatoonie, several edits have made that appear so, because he just up and vanishes after Rey kisses him.

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)

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.

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
