Quantum Of Solace - The No Good About Goodbye Cut (Released)
Time

After NTTD was released, I decided to rewatch all of the previous Craig-era Bond films. In regards to Casino Royale and Skyfall being my favorites of the era, I developed a soft spot for QOS. The film had so much potential to be an epic conclusion to what I call the “Vesper” arc but due to the writer’s strike, strange decisions, etc., it resulted in a weird mess of a film that in some aspect, it doesn’t feel like a direct sequel nor a finished product. It’s also been a decade since another fan editor named Lastsurvivor who has previously worked on one has been released. So I got inspired by his work by using it as a base and went to do my own personal touches with my ripped Blu-ray copy.

The Changes:

  • A few scenes from Casino Royale are utilized to have a certain recalling, stronger connection to the previous film, and are edited in a grainy black and white filter.

  • A custom gunbarrel by brightslash has been utilized resulting in the title sequence being moved 16 mins into the film.

  • A small clip from garin2’s Skyfall remade pre-title sequence is used to add a custom credit in the title sequence.

  • Forever (I Am All Yours) by Eva Almer is used over Another Way To Die.

  • The gunfight at the opera house has been slowed down and edited to give an emotional flashback of Vesper.

  • A deleted scene involving Mathis in the hospital from Casino Royale is used to give a brief reminisce of the character before meeting him again in Italy.

  • Mathis’ death scene was trimmed in an attempt to make it less confusing by having him already dead inside the van which a snippet before in the Greene Planet sequence was also trimmed.

  • The final fight scene with Bond and Greene / Camille and Medrano was edited to have an emotional sequence.

  • No Good About Goodbye by Shirley Bassey was added over the credits.

File size: 9.36 GB

720p is available for now due to 1080p’s colossal file size.

For Your Eyes Only (40th Anniversary Recut)
Time

For the upcoming 40th anniversary of For Your Eyes Only, I decided to do a fan edit on which as of now it’s currently on the final stages of editing. The aim is to engage the pacing slightly faster by removing small scenes that add up into minor excessive material. I personally enjoy Bill Conti’s score which pumps up the excitement in most action scenes so it’ll remain. Updates of this fan edit may appear soon in the future but for the meantime, I hope you enjoy the fan edit when it comes out.
[Update for 6-24-21] Today marks the 40th anniversary of the film. There are still things that I want to improve on the fan edit firstly redo everything on a blu-ray rip since the one I first did was pulled from an ultimate dvd edition. There are changes from the previous fan edit that I plan to not bring back in this upcoming new version but the new biggest plans are restoring the deleted scenes for the film. Once I get into the 2nd version of the fan edit, I’ll leave an update of what’s to come with the progress.

Changes:
-Replaced the Blofeld pre-title sequence with the sinking of St. Georges since Bond’s revenge for Tracy defeats the purpose of telling Melina to refrain her vengeance.
-Added a new title song sequence featuring Blondie’s rejected submission with a few additional scenes and clips from other title sequences made from Maurice Binder for A View To A Kill, For Your Eyes Only Music Video, The Living Daylights, & Licence To Kill.
-Additional sound effects including a small Easter Egg were included.
-Scenes involving Lyn-Holly Johnson were trimmed to provide Bond information instead of her attempting too hard to ask him out.
-The Pie lady and the Wine man were removed.
-The afternoon shopping with Melina was removed.
-A small scene of Kristatos eating nothing on his fork was removed.
-The small snippet of when one of Leopold’s goons grabs the grenade thrown by Bond was removed.
-The 2nd submarine battle was removed which I thought it was excessive enough.
-The last Q scene in St. Cyril was removed since it doesn’t add anything major but explain about Columbo and Melina recruiting.
-Sheena Easton’s main theme is still kept in the fan edit as the end credits theme instead.
