"Blade Runner - Replicated" - Ongoing split-screen project. (* unfinished project *)
Time

I was thinking of making a 'Bastard cut' purely for my own preferences. I'd keep some of the narration, but not all. I'd keep the Happy ending, but regrade the footage so it doesn't look quite so idyllic and normal. I'd use the raunchier love scene instead of the normal one, and make any other smaller changes as I go. I might also use the rachel line from the deleted scenes to end the film 'I think we were made for each other'.

Mr. McGregor hated SW?

Not exactly, Sir Alec grew to hate the films because of the constant undeserved (in his opinion) adulation he got over what he saw as just fantasy films. McGregor clearly hates the prequels just because they are bad films, which they are. And he probably didn't have a lot of fun shooting them either, seeing as it was all CGI apart from about 4 characters.

It's not from the retail DVD, it's definitely something gone bad with the encode at that point.

However, I a question: Do all owners of REDEEMED see what I see? Which is, the beggining of the film is out of sync. Perry, that lottery girl and Lois talk out of sync, and after a time, the sync is fine. Do all people have this prob?



Yeah I noticed that too. A shame after the impressive titles.

Superman II - The Booshman Cut (Released)

Kind of, but in the morning she says she was up all night thinking about it. It was difficult for her.

Well a big issue here is the deletion of the Paris opening. If that is left in, the majority of the Lester stuff I want to use would fall right into place. Although over the years as I've learned the behing-the-scenes story of II, I've grown to dislike the entire sequence for getting in the way of the "two parts of the same story" idea. Supeman freeing the villains with the missles from I always seemed like such a great idea to me, tying things together quite nicely. So I have every intention NOT to use the Paris sequence, even though that means losing arguably the best Clark/Superman transition of the series (the alley change).

Keep in mind this has nothing to do with trying to use leftover footage for an ultimate Christopher Reeve Superman III. That would be a seperate project entirely, so if there are arguments to keep Paris in Superman II, let them be heard.


I left the Paris scene in for my cut. It's just too much of an enjoyable sequence.

But with the addition of extra Niagra scenes, including the original clark to superman reveal. All the action sequences are Donner cut, which means stupid lester humour is gone. So what I have now is a more serious, but hopefully more complete viewing experience of the film. It's got the Donner opening titles and the Lester End titles, just to balnce it out. PAL running time is 2 hours and 6 minutes.

NONE has commented on this!

Great job, Jobel. Say, what do you think of that film now? Do you feel its better in some way? Will you make it available?


Thanks. I think as a film it's more enjoyable now. If I were to show somebody that had never seen the films before I would show them my version of II.

Although I've had some experience of editing before over the years, this is my first fan edit of a film. I'm not up on torrents and stuff, and I'm based in the UK, so maybe if I could get a disc out to a UK member who could maybe take it from there.

And to answer your question, Lois was originally to have died at the end of Superman II, at the hands of the villains. This was to enrage Superman enough for him to reverse time, saving Lois and putting the villains back into the Phantom Zone. In this context everything would have fell into place quite nicely.


Aha, thank you. Though I'm not sure I prefer her being torn apart to her being smothered in her car. Can you recommend a source for info on the original script?

In the original script perhaps, but not actually shot by Donner, because we have that Donner scene after the Villians are defeated were Superman and Lois share another kiss outside the fortress which is then followed by him destroying the fortress of solitude forever.
