The Amazing Spider-Man: PART 1
Time

I am officially releasing this edit!
Here is the cut list:

  • Cut the couple kissing at Peters Locker and not moving while he is trying to get in.
  • Changed Peters computer screen from Intern Enrollment Now Closed, to just Intern Enrollment. So now Peter actually signs up and is supposed to be a part of the group.
  • Cut Peter stealing badge.
  • Used the Norman Osborn TV wall from Amazing 2.
  • Cut the part of Peter and Gwen’s conversation where she asks why he’s there because he is now an intern. It’s just she says hi becuase he was walking off and her asking him not to get her in trouble and stay with the group
  • Trimmed the subway scene where Peter is apologizing while beating people up.
  • Cut the skateboard montage
  • Using the Alt Uncle Ben death scene
  • Added the Uncle Ben dialog as voiceover about responsibility as Peter is covering up Aunt May 46:25
  • Cut the revenge subplot
  • Cut Peter punching the mugger in the face and now just grabs the wrist holding the gun and tosses the guy.
  • Cut the weird go pro camera shot
  • Cut kids talking about the “science” of swinging
  • Used extended POV intro to the Spider-Man reveal thanks to Masirimso17!
  • Trimmed the car thief scene to make Peter seem like less of a jerk
  • Cut the scene where Peter comes home and tells Aunt May to go to sleep as she is worried about Peter because he is all beat up. I love the emotional weight of the scene, but it’s just out of character for both of them
  • Added doorman deleted scene
  • Cut the “I really like kissing you” moment because I …
  • Cut Peter tossing the football and bending the goal post and cutting away from the kissing moment wasn’t working.
  • Added the tracking Dr Connors deleted scene, but trimmed to hide the lack of CGI as best as it would let me. Placed it after Peter sees Freddy eating Wilma.
  • Now cut to Peter asking Capt Stacey to look into Connors
  • Added deleted scene of Peter and Gwen at the clock tower after sneaking out of her bedroom
  • Added most of the deleted Connors in the sewer speech. Tried to crop out the wire hand but a finger creeps in for one shot, but you can’t tell what it is. He could be holding something.
  • Added an edited version of deleted scene where Rajit figures out where Connors is
  • Added a trimmed version of the Alt scene when Peter discovers Connors plan
  • Cut Go Pro shot
  • Like Last time I cut Peter coming home all beat up in front of Aunt May for the same reasons as before.
  • Cut Peter being at the funeral
  • Added Peter and Aunt May deleted scene
  • Cut everything after Gwen walks away in the rain

The Amazing Spider-Man: PART 1
Time

So I really wanted to do an edit of this seeing how after No Way Home, Andrew Garfield was getting a lot of love. So I re-watched the movies to see what was it that made these movies seem not as loved back when they were fresh? I felt that Garfield was really quite good in several moments, but the movie as a whole felt too dark for Spider-Man and had several out of character moments in the film. It suffers from wanting to be a Christopher Nolen Batman movie. The whole breakup makeup breakup makeup with Gwen in these movies doesn’t help either.

I’m a HUGE Spider-Man fan for many many years, and I had an idea that I’m really excited to be working on for all of you! I have three and a half long boxes of comics, I have watched the cartoons and live action appearances of the character over the years. I know Spider-Man…

There have been a few good edits that have done some different things with these movies. There have been edits that took both movies and made it into one. There are great edits for people who wanted the whole parental backstory completed. But I want to go for something different here. I’m taking both movies and treating them as one long movie told in two parts.

I’m cutting out of character moments and rescoring others to give the movie a different feel in those moments. I’m only using deleted and alt material that I felt added something to the movie. No adding for the sake of adding.

This is about a week out from release.

Time

I have compiled my cut list. Total cut is about 11 minutes

  • Trimmed the amount of time Punisher(Frank) stands on the mobs dinner table

  • Cut some of the mob people at the tables deaths. He’s sitting in one spot too long and needs to be moving faster or there is just no way he is surviving this scene.

  • Speed up the kicking the soup into the guys face by 50%. Again, it just moves too slow.

  • Trimmed some of the time spent hanging from the chandelier. Same reasoning as the rest of this scene.

  • Cut the Jumpy Flippy Guys at the docs minus the one scene where they pick up the cash. Now when Billy say to “do your monkey thing” it now has different context, but we are not supposed to like this guy.

  • Moved the scene when Billy (not jigsaw yet) finds out Nicky was a rat to after the Basement scene with Budiansky (who I will now just call Booty) and Soap meet. This way I can cut the whole plastic surgeon part that directly rips off Batman 89.

  • Cut the shot of the plastic surgeon with the scissors in his head. He doesn’t exist in this cut of the movie. Now when Pittsy is looking away it’s because it’s the first time seeing Jigsaw.

  • After Jigsaw breaks in to get Loony Bin Jim (LBJ) I cut the scene after LBJ says “no brother, fatso’s mine”. He get’s to become too much right away and this character needs to be dialed back. Sometimes it’s just better to hint. More creepy that way.

  • Cut LBJ breaking all the mirrors. We only see him breaking one. The scene as a whole feels too silly otherwise.

  • At Micros house when Frank says that he’s done Micro talks him back by reminding him that Jigsaw will be going after Mrs Donatelli and her daughter. So I cut away after Frank says Jigsaw is the last one and he’s done. Again I am cutting the jumpy flippy guys. There is no need for this subplot. Frank knows where the Donatelli’s live. He was just at their home trying to drop off cash. So him showing up to rescue them later still works because he is only staying around to stop them from getting killed anyway.

  • Cut Frank and Booty fighting and Frank getting arrested. That also means he doesn’t sit in the back of the police car. Soap and Booty said earlier that they were going to be listening to the police band and listen for what crimes are happening, so if Booty hears there is a call at his friends widow’s home, it’s not odd they would also show up to check it out. We don’t need Frank to tell them to go there.

  • Slight rearrangement of scenes at the Donatelli home.

  • Cut Booty asking Soap how Frank escaped from the car.

  • Cut LBJ making a cat sound in the interrogation room at the station.

  • During the Jigsaw recruitment speech I never cut back to Jig and LBJ because I don’t like the flag floating behind them. Again the movie just goes too far. So I am using scenes from the special features and some fan films off YouTube as cutaways to represent what Jig is talking about in those moments.

  • Cut scene at police station when Booty tells Soap that he is helping Soaps Partner (meaning Frank). Booty has no reason to suspect this now.

  • Cut shots of LBJ walking around.

  • At the raid in the Hotel, cut shot of guy smoking in the elevators head exploding.

  • Trimmed fight between LBJ and Frank to remove LBJ dialog. He comes across a bit more menacing fighting silent.

  • Cut Franks line at the end of the hotel scene “This is just the beginning”, It doesn’t fit.

  • Cut LBJ random laughing through out the movie where I could.

Punisher: War Zone (2008) Now Punisher: War Journal
Time

A friend of mine is a big Punisher fan, and said that this was the movie out of the 2 he wanted to see “fixed”. I haven’t watched it in a while and when I went back to it to see what I wanted to do, I was like “oh boy, what did I get myself into”…

But I had a moment of inspiration. Pretty much every October, I watch the original classic, The Crow. Back when that movie was still very new but out on home video, I remember my friends mom asking if the movie was in black and white… We all know it wasn’t, but it’s just the color was muted for large parts of the movie. Color is a big part visually of what I see being wrong with this movie. Punisher should feel gritty, not saturated.

So I’m going to use 50% Grayscale on the movie as a whole and may do some additional color corrections where needed for specific scenes. But one other thing about me watching The Crow that I think will fit well here. I only have that movie on DVD and SD digital. I have only every watched it that way and in my mind, the little extra grit you get from the movie not being so clean in HD has become part of the movie watching experience. I don’t plan to ever watch The Crow any other way. So I am going to add a little bit of noise to the movie for some grain or grit if you will.

Oh… and no more Batman 89 Joker ripoff scene.
