2001: A Funkadelic Odyssey (a WIP)
Time

Below is a revision of the previous sound isolation test I posted above. Under advice from a fanedit.org user named VarsityEditor, I have shortened the soundtrack in the scene and given it a super-long crossfade to get things the way I intended it to be. It doesn’t loop like VarsityEditor suggested, but doing so is hard, and perhaps when I feel up for it, I’ll try Varsity’s suggestion in full. For now though, here’s what I’ve done:

Below is the second sound isolation test I’ve decided to show off. This scene has been one of the more difficult parts of the edit, and making the dialogue easy to hear has been one of many challenges with this scene.

The rejection of the song below is arguably the most heartbreaking decision I made for this edit (at least, so far). This was going to be the original song for the scene above, but the problem with it was that James Brown’s voice was either too loud for anyone to hear the dialogue, or the background music was too quiet for anyone to hear. So for those technical reasons, I wasn’t able to use it. I had hoped to use it because the serious parts of the film were the hardest to work on, and finding a funk song that isn’t all sunshine and rainbows is a hard find. I eventually settled on the Bar-Kays “Standing on the Outside” instead, because the vocals and music were balanced well enough that it didn’t intrude on the dialogue in the scene above.

Batman Forever: The Eyepainter Fanedit (Complete)
Time

In the wake of the events that have happened on fanedit.org over sock account ArtisDead, I have re-uploaded my edit of Batman Forever, scratching him off the special thanks list. I have also removed the cover of “Kiss From a Rose” during the end credits of my edit, as that was a suggestion that he forced on me. My apologies to those who liked the song, but I have my reasons for removing it.

Below is the first of what will be quite a few sound isolation tests. I want to offer my thanks to VarsityEditor over at fanedit.org, for sending me his sound isolated work on 2001. I will continue to post more of these as I get around my rather busy work schedule. For now, though, I leave this one as both a demonstration and a teaser.

Below are two color tests I’ve thrown onto the monolith scenes. I felt that these would make more sense for the kind of edit I’m doing, and it makes the film feel even more like something out of the 1960’s and 1970’s.

Note: Yes, I’m aware that the song, “Free Your Mind and Your Ass Will Follow” is in both videos. In a lot of ways, that song became the main theme for the monolith, and as such, it is not the only song in the film.

At last. At long last. Stanley Kubrick’s legendary film the way you remember it. Only funkier. Groovier. And far more severely dated. Drug use will be neither confirmed nor denied.

Enjoy!

Already have! Is that a remix of Seal’s Kiss From a Rose? 😃

You are correct. ArtisDead over on fanedit.org found it online and suggested I use it in both the end credits and the trailer. The full version will be in the end credits of my edit.

Yes, I’m aware that I’ve gone silent here. As a few visitors on fanedit.org have probably figured out, I am one of the names listed on the Red Apple Crew’s latest endeavor with Clint Eastwood. Because the crew wishes to keep things hush hush, all I can say for now is that I’ve been busy with the “episode” and I’ve been preoccupied with that one over the last few months. Fortunately, my contribution to the Red Apple Crew is almost complete, and I’m now able to get back and return to Batman. I’m now working on assembling a trailer for Batman Forever at this time. I’ve managed to cut things down to 25 minutes worth of footage, but that’s still a lot to cut down to a 2 1/2 minute length. I’m not sure how long it’s gonna take me to complete the trailer, but hopefully, it should make up for my mysterious disappearance on here.

Starcrash. I’ve finally watched a sci fi film that is worse than the Star Wars Holiday Special. One of the worst films i have ever seen, worse than At the Earth’s Core even.

This movie has a cult following, and I just don’t get it. Caroline Munro’s hot. Big whoop. T&A alone can’t elevate a bad movie to so-bad-it’s-good.

Maybe it depends on the crowd, but I remember seeing it at a special screening with a few hundred B-movie fans and thought it was hilarious.

I did some binge-watching on a lot of B-movies and Roger Corman movies last year (Star Crash being one of them), and my experiences are hit-or-miss. It either entertains me or it doesn’t. I’ve watched plenty of b-movies that left me bored despite the rabid fanbase. While other times, I watch one that is universally despised by everyone else, but ends up being an unintentional comedy riot that makes my night.

I guess when it comes to b-movies, it truly is a subjective experience, even more so than with more “artistic” films. When you watch a movie that’s supposed to be good, there is a real effort to make it something more universally applicable to everyone. This is why people take it personally when someone says they hate, say, The Shawshank Redemption. That’s rarely the case with a cheesy b-movie where rookie mistakes are made on a consistent basis. Either those technical blunders are gonna get a laugh out of you, or you’re just gonna notice their existence and be reminded you’re not invested in what’s going on.

Tl;dr: the entertainment level of a b-movie is variable in my world, and if someone doesn’t like Star Crash, I understand why. Not everyone has to laugh at the same things.

Found out the subtitles on the commentary track are going too fast. I’ll work on fixing that up, but with that said, I think it’s time to get the edit uploaded. Better now than in November. Keep in mind that if you’re planning on reading the commentary, the subtitles are gonna be a little fast. Excuse that mistake for now. I’ll send an update when the commentary issue is fixed and I’ve reuploaded it.

Commentary is done! I did have plans to work on the subtitles next, but something has come up on fanedit.org. I won’t say what it is, because it’s top secret stuff I can’t share, but because of it, I am faced with no other choice but to start work on releasing this edit sooner rather than later. And since it’s the month of October, there’s no better time to prepare a submission on fe.org than now. My only fear is if I run into the same problem I had last time with my Eyes Wide Shut edit where my submission kept disappearing. Still, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this time will be different.

Elemental (2023)

I admit, my expectations were low, and I only watched this out of peer pressure and boredom. The result was mostly what I expected it to be. I suppose the romance is sweet, but that’s the only thing I liked. It’s hard not to watch this without thinking of Zootopia, which handled its racial subtext far better than this. The jokes were mostly puns I didn’t like, and the “follow your passion” message has been done approximately 25,000,000 times prior to this film. It’s not the worst thing Pixar has ever done, but I still wouldn’t recommend it nonetheless. How this film managed to pull off its box office miracle is a mystery to me.
