Wouldn’t hold your breath on this one, one that might be better is the very hard to find US cut that did get limited TV play at some point in the US with trimmed scenes and overdubbed voices for some of the characters as well as the alternate animated opening.

I’d love to get hold of this version to upgrade via the Blu Ray footage and use the soundtrack.

Totally different take is Im working on my own edit of this as a B/W Silent movie but with font words sliced in like a silent movie but using soundtracks from mostly Hammer Movies and giving it an old movie feel and frame rate.

Currently on 24hr encode in Premier Pro for the picture before I start on the soundtrack.

I think that version ran on Elvira’s Movie Macabre back in 1982.

You should start a thread for your edit instead of posting in this one though.

Yes looks like Elvira’s Movie Macabre did show it in the first season so my personal seeking continues.

Time

Got highest setting on plus multiple Fx adjustments running through it, colour changes, light beam effect, frame rate at 19 but processed at 23.97 to get silent movie effect, dirt and dust effects, noise slight effect, worn border effect to name a few, it did take me by surprise the length the longest I’ve ever had in truth. 6hrs and counting.

The soundtrack of multiple hammer movies plus some original soundtrack cues from the movie itself is the one thats going to take time but UK back in national lockdown for a month from Thurs so need some thing to keep me accupied.

My Re-Edits of The Pink Panther: 'The Pink Panther Strikes Again - Extended' (Released)

Knotty Pine said:

How can one get a hold of your extended cut of The Pink panther Strikes Again? Sooo eager to see this.

I did a re edit of this last year placing all deleted footage back in and rescoring some of the music in the deleted footage to blend better but belive I placed more back in than above fan edit. V1 of this is on every ones favourite organ but did a v2 shortly after to correct some small volume issues.

Info Wanted: 'Salem's Lot' - Uncut vs cut - what are the differences?

Moiisty said:

so ur making two versions or only 1 version?

I’m making 2 already made the reproduction of the original 2 part mini series with all intros, credits and recaps for both parts duplicated from the UK DVD with Blu Ray footage.
Im just now working on reproducing the theatrical movie based off the Italian and German DVD with the shotgun scene placed back in.

Should be done in a day or so.

Info Wanted: 'Salem's Lot' - Uncut vs cut - what are the differences?
Time

All DVDs have arrived, after viewing the dubbed italian version with the uncut shotgun scene I think I will add this into the theatrical reconstruction based off the blu ray footage but colour correct and upscale these few moments with the uncut scene.

It wont be a perfect reproduction as both the Italian and German movies are cut differently with some having more scenes than others but will duplicate based off both.

Lots of small alternate takes but dont really add much to upscale the DVD footage over the superior blu ray, example long shots on DVD but close up shots on blu ray and Crockett and Bonnie in bed has crocket on top of her in the theatrical but on the blu ray they are side by side, only last about 1 second so will leave that alone.

Yes there are some different music cues and the opening will have them and some scenes dependant on editing, as previous the 2 parter is done and I’m quarter into the theatrical cut now.

Info Wanted: 'Salem's Lot' - Uncut vs cut - what are the differences?
Time

Well I’ve just finished my reconstruction of the original mini series by using the superior blu ray footage.

Reading this thread spiked my interest again in this project and watching the blu ray I found fond memories of watching this as a child coming back.

So by using the blu ray and purchasing the 2 disc UK DVD with all the recap, intro’s credits I recreated the mini series 2 parter by using the sound of the DVD for the intros and end portions and editing together all the images from the Blu ray to duplicate all the intro’s, credits and recaps and then the rest of the blu ray for the remaining portions of the mini series I only used 2 small sequences from the DVD but upscaled and colour corrected.

The intro’s are as close as I can get to the original although there were a few alternate takes in the intros from the DVD that were not in the blu ray so had to duplicate an alternate scene from the blu ray best as I could, so 99% accurate reconstruction in blu ray quality.

I also added in and edited the audio commentary into the separate 2 parts.

Now I will upload this to every ones favourite organ soon but although these are finished I also ordered the German DVD and the Italian DVD both are the shorter movie versions, I intend to do a reconstruction of the theatrical movie again using the blu ray source footage but the Italian DVD has the uncut shotgun in the mouth so was toying with inserting this into the 2 part version although the audio commentary does discuss this so may not match what’s on screen if I insert.

As I’m expecting these to arrive in the next several days I’m undersided to wait or not.

Jumanji Next Level Cliff Hanger 5 Part Serial (Released)
Time

Well we all need some fun in these times and after some time working from home and watching Jumanji The Next Level I thought the movie would work as a cliff hanger serial, so I went to work on that idea.

I was always a fan of the cliff hanger serial so I have tried to represent that here with a new opening to the episodes with clips from Jumanji, Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle and Jumanji The Next Level and with a new Sony logo to resemble the Republic logo beginning from B/W to colour with original Republic music intro.

Then we have new title cards for each episode showing the title of the episode followed by character cards giving a recap on the previous episode.

The music on all these is from the official sound track of the Next Level and the original movie for example I have mixed 3 scores to create the opening credits then a score from the Next Level for the title/recap cards.

The episodes are edited across 5 episodes with the beginning of the movie having some edits for pace and time before the first cliff hanger scene, I wanted to cut this down some more but it would spoil the story so were the other episodes run roughly just over the 22 minute mark this 1st episode is 30mins.

Each episode ends on a cliff hanger with music build up to the title card for the next episode followed by new short end credits as per the cliff hangers had also showing the title for the next chapter.

Each new episode has a brief edited down section of the previous cliff hanger as a recap.

Way to many edits done and music edits placed in to list but overall a good bit of fun and a new way to enjoy the movie.

Why you may ask the 2nd movie first solely because it was fresh in my mind, I hopefully will do the first movie as well but will need to re,watch if it will play the same way this movie did to create it.

Lets have some fun whilst we are at home.

The A-Team Broadcast Restoration (Released)
Time

Good to know, I bought it second hand off e bay, didn’t know they did a second pressing other than the one with audio commentary tracks but there a bit to pricey for me and I believe the commentary tracks are again on split 2 parters?
Would be good to listen to though.
Guess my take at least restores the intro.

Baobab Archiver you may want to check Spleen for my latest upload of the restored Range Rider feature length special restored in HD as originally broadcast including restored intro in HD

Thanks for the heads up. Just so you know, later pressings of the Blu-ray had the two partners presented as movie length. You could also send away the 2 parter discs and they’d send the corrected discs in the post. Still no pre-credits sequence on this episode though.
You may find that there were scenes cut in the 2 parter too, as they often did that to bring the individual episodes down to a certain length.
I’m downloading now and will try to seed for a bit.

Incidentally, I haven’t yet received that DVD I won. It should’ve arrived a few days ago, so I’ve had to chase up with the seller. Hopefully it hasn’t got lost in the post somewhere 😦

On a side note the vhs is via playback if its the UK version which is uncut, I was tempted to bid on a first run playback DVD that came with a A team magazine before the main collection season box sets came out in the hope this had the uncut music, however the seller wouldn’t check if the music was there. The bid went to £9 not that much but as I couldn’t confirm I let the bid go. The DVD states not for resale and available with magazine only and has playback labelled on it.

I recorded the pilot from VHS think I pointed you in that direction. I had no issues as I recorded from the vhs through a HD PVR2 gaming Edition direct to my laptop.
When I reformatted my laptop think I lost the recording it was me that uploaded the teasers and scene to spleen.
PVR are good at recording anything off air including protected content if you use a HD splitter into the PVR it was the same for me with the tape.
Afraid I dont have the tape any longer.

The Mandalorian : a Radical Redux Fan Edit <strong>Ideas</strong> thread
Time

WitchDR said:

lorang said:

Well just finished my take on the recent Mandalorian TV series, to condense the 8 part show into a standalone movie that runs 2hrs 38mins so I’ve roughly cut 2hrs 34mins from the total run time.

That mainly consisted of filler episodes 4,5and 6 but I had to make use of snippets from some of these to create filler sequences to maintain the flow of the episodes such as the introduction of Cara Dune character who was introduced in episode 4 but wasn’t central to the plot until episode 7.

Now I have created 100’s of cuts here way too many to list including isolating the sound track elements so I have 6 isolated scores to enable me to have either special effects removed or back ground music to enable me to blend some scenes together or play around with characters talking then using the official soundtrack score and placing music back in for dramatic effect.

I also had to use separate blaster or back ground special effect sounds such as steam and levers and so on to fill blank sounds that had been removed so had to create these from scratch.

Now the run time of 2hrs 38 could have been reduced to near 2hrs but I do like episode 2 and the Jawa’s episode so left this in for the most part, just a personal choice but any fan editors out there may want to remove this section to reduce the length down.

Episode 1 has a few trims, episode 2 has trims and wipes added, episode 3 had quite a few trims, wipes and isolated scenes for sound and redubbed and new music added and some extra snips from 5 & 6, episode 4 heavy cuts to remove all the story from the episode and scenes relevant to that story with just Cara Dune introduction added and ended were she says she was here first and Mando says this planet is taken, I then use alternate takes from the other episodes of him leaving the planet with new soundtrack added and sound elements added into the background.

We then pick up in episode 7 removing 5&6, minor trims here to several scenes that dragged the pace down, and episode 8 had to have numerous scenes cut, music rescored, dubbed and scenes rearranged as well as some new wipes added.

The show runs along quite nice now as a standalone

Damn I’d love to check out your edit. Been waiting for someone to attempt an edit since chapter 8 came out. Too bad that site is locked to new sign ups.

Sure some one might share if needed, V2 just uploaded

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood Extended Cut (Released)
Time

Well after my take on the extended cut of the Hateful 8 available on the organ, I decided to get the web download of Tarantino’s new Once Upon a Time in Hollywood plus the separate special features/extra’s that are available to buy and try and duplicate a form of Roadshow/Extended Cut.

This is not a straight forward duplicate of the standard theatrical cut, as in the standard cut is 2hrs 41mins and this version is 3hrs 7mins around 26mins longer

How did I achieve this fan edit, well I inserted all the available deleted scenes back into the movie as well as inserting a Overture, an Intermission and 2 of the 60’s made tv commercials that Tarantino made but didn’t make the final cut.

The run of the movie is an overture followed by a Red Apple advertisement before the movie kicks in, the overture title card I created and tried to make it look basic and bright for the setting of the Hollywood Hills movie.

I inserted music from Death Proof in the title card, Death Proof I hear you say but yes this is the music by Keith Mansfield, Funky Fanfare that fit’s the late 60’s groove of the movie.

I added some film grain here and some reel change blip followed by the advertisement, this then has a feature presentation logo that is aged, the 1 from Kill Bill fitted this very nice.

We then roll into the movie with an added Cinerama title card added.

Our first deleted scene is an extended play on an episode of Bounty Law played in when being discussed between Rick Dalton and Marvin Schwarz in the restaurant.

This is quickly followed by an extended version of Rick singing Green door at Hullabuloo, I had to insert Marvin’s voice over into the extend scene as this was not present as in the theatrical version.

We continue until we insert the next deleted scene of the Stacey Brothers on the cowboy set.

This is followed by a new scene of Charlie paying house calls whilst Cliff is on the roof.

To insert an intermission break half way through the movie I had to rearrange a few scenes so the cowboy set section is split but the Sharon Tate Movie Theatre visit plays together.

The split of the cowboy set section is done by inserting Tarantino saying action/cut etc in the background to keep focus this is a movie in a movie and ends with Cliff Booth driving on the Motorway rocking out to Los Bravos “Bring a little Lovin” I extended this by redoing all the sound in the section, background noise, cars, wind the music everything so the music would keep playing into the tile card of the Intermission and play the full song.

The intermission was extended a little longer by a radio channel change sound effect followed by an instrumental version of Treat Her Right and not the singing version that plays in the movie so it offered a slight difference.

After the intermission we have a new commercial from the deleted scenes, followed by a cinema reel countdown before continuation on the cowboy set again with Tarantino yelling action added in to make up splitting the scene, new scene new take.

We then have another deleted scene with Rick Dalton and the director Sam Wanamaker talking and giving Rick inspiration, this is mentioned a little later in the theatrical version.

The film then continues but again I had to split and rearrange a few scenes as the insertion of the deleted scene above didn’t fit unless I changed split the visit to the farm with Cliff and Pussy.

After this change the film runs through to the end.

The edit is finished and will be on everyone favourite organ shortly.
