And here we are, my edit of Day of the Moon, my final edit of 2016, and there will be plenty more to come in 2017, I can assure you.
Aside from the changes you’ll have seen already in the sample, I cut out stuff pertaining to Canton being gone for “days” after being inside the prison (in reality, hanging out with The Doctor and chums) and ended the episode right after Canton and Nixon having the conversation about Canton’s choice of fiance.
I fully intend to get around to the first half of this story in a much more wibbly-wobbly way soon, and I may just make it the first edit of 2017. Stay tuned.
An early Christmas present for you all. The first book in my series which rewrites the fifth season of Power Rangers: The Need For Speed
The Rangers are off to the race track to experience the “A.G 5000”. Meanwhile, on the moon, Lord Zedd, Rita, and the gang hit the jackpot and decide to spend it (un)wisely by putting a price tag on the heads of their greatest enemies.
Well, it’s been a while since I posted a sample of anything, but I think this fits the bill
For fun, I’ve been trying to put together a more coherant, 33-minute trim of the second half of Doctor Who’s sixth series premiere, “Day of the Moon”, just to see if that ridiculous chase Canton embarks on for the first five or so minutes could be removed without mucking up the plot too much. I even framed the title sequence to begin as soon as the “previously ends” with Amy freaking out over shooting Melody

This shall not be the last fanedit you see from me before the year’s out. Besides the full version of this, I also intend to post my edit of The God Complex
I’m a tough nut to crack regarding movies with the myth of hype behind them, but this is a cracking good movie.
Is it perfect? No…there’s a really mediocre middle act where you have to wonder “why did they go there?”, but they pick up speed swiftly after and there’s at least a pivotal plot point in it that the protagonists learn of. Everything after that is pure gold. Every action means something, and there is so many boss scenes with Vader that it finally, FINALLY, rinses out the bitter taste of “Nooooooooooo”. James Earl Jones redeemed. Vader redeemed. Make no mistake about it, it puts a whole new spin on A New Hope, that movie really ought to be re titled to “A Stroke of Luck”
That entire third act IS Star Wars. Go see it, just try to make it through the second act and you will be pleasantly rewarded.
Now, onto the fanedit ideas
I’d see about possibly removing that entire middle act, you could have Felicity Jones learn about “stardust” another way than from her dad’s dying mouth, I’d actually end her dad’s role when she finds his hologram from Forest Whitaker (and yeah, I’m lapsing on the actual character names, sorry), also I’d minimise the number of times the design flaw in the Death Star is constantly brought up.
-The right transistional effects
-Maybe call it “Episode IV.1”
-More of the classic score
-You really don’t need all the Tarkin scenes.
Another issue, and another triumph for Gerry Conway and Ryan Stegman, as they put together their take on Mary Jane, a take so refreshing, mature, and a bit of a protest song against the psiren that is her Mephistoverse counterpart. I hear this has been selling out in stores, so if you can, make sure you track down a copy today, don’t wait for your pocket money over the weekend. Comics like this need the support immediately. Read and enjoy Spider-Man and Wife as they were meant to be.
