Help: looking for... Prequel Preservations...
Time
Long version:

1.) Few people here (besides myself) really enjoyed the PT, so I doubt they're going to cook up a theatrical release of them, especially since the changes are so minor.

2.) Don't post a whole thread saying what you want. This goes in a PT fan-edit topic (pick one). If you don't get replies, then try another topic, and so on.

3.) This is not a bootleg site. You don't ask for that here.

Short version:

Nice ToS violation. Enjoy your ban.

The Phantom of the Opera Resynched (Released)
Time
I was considering trying to do this sort of thing with the 1999 Donny Osmond "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" DVD. I wanted to use the original cast, but then found out that they never made the recording. The closest one is the 1973 soundtrack release, and that made me want to do it even more, just because I'll be rolling around on the floor. Why, you ask? In the 1973 recording, the narrator is male, while in every subsequent release (including the film), the narrator is female. If I ever get around to doing it (unlikely), I'm thinking of calling it "The Transvestite Narrator Redub" or something similar.

I would also like to try my hand at redubbing PotO with the original cast, but doing a few things different than wmgan (certainly no offense intended). I'd just like to give into my little idiosyncrasies as far as matching the film to the music. Since doing so would make the plot somewhat opaque, I don't intend to make it like a movie unto itself, but like a series of music videos, complete with those annoying credits that pop up in the corner at the beginning (optional, of course). This will also result in some funny gender bending moments, although not on anywhere near the scale of the first project I mentioned. The most notable moment will be when the Phantom starts reciting line from the second Notes sequence at the end of the Why So Silent scene. Since the lines were in a note read by Madame Giry in the play, the Phantom will be speaking with her voice for a moment or two before Michael Crawford's voice fades in. I'm positive I will due this at some point, but when? No idea.

Help Wanted: Power Rangers Direct-to-Video Specials - Preserving the Pain
Time
Originally posted by: twister111

There are two versions of the original pilot. The aired version that was shown on TV was edited down due to "violence" they also changed what was said during the megazord sequence utilizing dialoge from the official pilot. They had to edit out the word droid. The real un-aired pilot can be viewed via Youtube.

Also, the fan club video I have but, it was a behind the scenes of the power rangers. They didn't set it up as "these are the power rangers", they set it up as "these are the actors that play the power rangers". Anyone who thought they were trying to convince the kids that they weren't actors clearly wasn't paying attention. They had the actors name on the screen during the interviews not the characters. I currently have it in storage though so, I can't put it on the web.




Wow... edited for violence? They have people kicking each other's brains out in EVERY frickin' episode! What did they do, strap the a putty to a chair and cut its Achilles' tendon?

Thanks for the correction about the fan club video. That sounded a bit strange to me, since two similar videos (those of the official Karate Club) are out-of-character. Still, it might be interesting simply for the Zordon/Rita backstory, but I'm taking it off the list.

Help Wanted: Power Rangers Direct-to-Video Specials - Preserving the Pain
Time

I have a confession to make: I was a jumbo-sized Power Ranger fan way back when. I had an army of toys and a large stockpile of video. I have since given them away to children who would enjoy them more. The Rangers are still going strong on the ‘net, it seems, as I can find both movies and just about every episode on torrent sites. There are a few that the fans seemed to have overlooked, though. I am speaking of several direct-to-video specials produced in the series’ infancy. A couple have already made their way to the 'net. One, “The Good, the Bad, and the Stupid: The Misadventures of Bulk and Skull” has a self-explanatory title (mostly stock footage of their best gags with a new frame story). Another, the “Power Rangers World Tour Live On Stage” was the official video of a stage adaptation of the series. Then, of course, there was the unaired pilot that was shown on TV during the sixth season. Two others, however, I have been unable to find. Other than these, I don’t think any other in-character (i.e. not making-of) specials have been made, but if you know of any others, feel free to say so.

1.) Alpha’s Magical Christmas
BARF!!! This is unbelievable. Alpha feels lonely on Christmas because the Rangers are off helping Santa Claus get ready to make his yearly trip (as opposed to, say, saving children from a burning building or stopping mass deforestation). So what does Zordon do? He teleports some kids to the Command Center (you know, the one that’s supposed to have SECURITY CLEARANCE) so they can sing Christmas carols with Alpha! It is notable that the action is nearly nonexistant in this little rough among diamonds.

2.) Lord Zedd’s Monster Heads: The Greatest Villains of the Power Rangers
This is the single biggest con in the history of the show! Nowhere else will you find a piece of Power Rangers media made COMPLETELY out of stock footage! There are a few instances of new dialogue over the title character’s footage, but the rest is just a selection of the best of PR’s worst. Hey, at least someone gets hit in this one.

Well, there’s the shopping list, but where’s the goods? If anyone on the OT forums is a reformed PR fan, would you check your old collection and see if you can get these on the 'net somehow? You would have the gratitude of myself and everyone else who clings to childhood memories for dear life.

Help Wanted: improving upon ADigitalMan's Revenge of the Sith edit
Time
Actually, they caught the exchange that created the purple ligtsaber on film. Sam was not at all as bratty as y'all are making him out to be. The exchange went almost exactly like this:

GL: So, what do you want your lightsaber color to be?
SLJ: What colors you got?
GL: Good guys are blue and green. Bad guys are red.
*pause*
SLJ: How about purple?
*pause*
GL: Okay.

That hardly seems like mollycoddling to me. That said, the aesthetic value of a purple lightsaber sells for a loss, if you catch my drift.

ORIGINAL STAR WARS TRILOGY OUT 09/2006 BY LUCASFILM
Time
Well, as for the question of "where do you go from here?", I have one suggestion: Petition (read: edit your own) theatrical PT! Think about it, the changes are too small to warrant a release similar to this, so you'll never have to worry about Papanoida (assuming that he follows his current trend of turning a blind eye).

...

What? Okay, so a lot of you don't like the PT (or don't like it enough to put a "PT Classic Edition" together). What else are you going to do that's Star Wars-related? Your own private fan-edits can only keep you entertained for so long. The only other thing I can think about is preserving the episodes of the Droids and Ewoks animated series that haven't been released (unless GL plans to get off his rump and finish releasing the series, already). Just about the only thing you can do for the Holiday Special is substitute '04 DVD footage for the stock footage used in Han and Chewie's scenes. There's also the prospect of preserving the Clone Wars series in it's original, serialized form in DVD quality.

All of these projects are relatively small, though. Man, now that we're getting the OOT, what are y'all going to do?
