I was really disappointed in this film after walking out of the theater. But I gave it another watch on Netflix the other night, and I found myself really enjoying most of it.
I’ll definitely be checking this out before attempting an edit of my own.
I like the list of cuts, particularly the smaller ones I agree with most. I’ll definitely be making a lot of similar cuts if I ever get around to it. As well as a few other extraneously over the top or tongue in cheek moments.
I personally enjoy the backstory opening, but I admit it wasn’t handled all that gracefully so I’ll be interested in seeing how it feels without it.
And there was a good character there deep down with L3, they just went way too far with it, so definitely agree with trimming her time down a bit. Additionally (and I think I’m in the minority when I say) I just didn’t buy Donald Glover as Lando, so I plan on trimming some of his non-essential screentime. He just has too many cheesy moments that draw unnecessary attention to his swag and I think a less is more approach would help make him feel more in line with Billy D.
Congrats on the first full edit. I have yet to finish a single edit ever, some of them started years ago haha
