Inspired by the brilliant SDN Editions, which has been kindly hosting several of my most recent fanedits, I have been doing my best to stitch together what I hope is a 90 minute feature-length fourth outing for Tobey Macguire
Rather than bore you with the very rough trailer I put together for it, I chose instead to announce this project using a music video…in this altered reality, everyone’s ‘favourites’ Nickelback once again contribute to a Spidey soundtrack, with the song ‘Lullaby’ telling two stories at once. I’d include more footage, but I don’t want to give the game away too much on what I have coming up.
If so inclined, enjoy
It’s Deadpool 2 as you know and love it, just with a little bit more added to it.
Featuring guest appearances from Celine Dion, an additional cameo from James Mcavoy, quick cameos from a trio of other musicians I’m too out-of-touch to know the names off by heart, use of footage from the “No Good Deed” mini-sode and an alternative end credits sequence.
Some of you with sharp memories (assuming you’ve followed this blog since the begining) will know I already made an edit of this sometime ago, however that version was about eleven minutes. This is a full-length edit.
If I had to split M.A.S.K up into ‘seasons’ then episode 14 ‘Assault on Liberty’ would be my choice for season one finale. It has everything, mostly action, but kind of a sense of finality as VENOM vehicle are all trashed and the team prevent a quasi-9/11 terrorist plot from being carried out. They even come very close to killing off Miles Mayhem.
Even as a kid, I found the whole thing with Miles surviving the final act a little hard to swallow, so here we don’t cut to him surfacing and vowing revenge.
I did have to lose the destruction of Jackhammer and Piranha, the only portion of this edit I regret taking out is the latter as there’s really nothing wrong with it, but the cheesy idea of Thunderhawk wiping out all of Jackhammer with two pulse blasts just betrays all sense.
Utilising as many fan films as I could find on Youtube, I’ve constructed a thirty-minute live-action ‘fourth’ TMNT movie, doing my best with the material to weave together some kind of a coherent plot (it’ll be up to you to decide if I’ve succeeded in that regard), and using a song from the original movie’s soundtrack for the end credits (all of which I’ve taken from some of the fan films I use here)
The movie begins with Raphael working on his anger issues and reuniting with his brothers in Japan, while April moves in with Splinter for a while. Casey Jones in the meantime teams with Keno to try and prevent a canister of TGRI’s mutagen from falling into corrupt hands. Soon, the Foot get involved and kidnap April, just as the TMNT make their way back home to confront the Purple Dragons…
I’ve created a second cut I intend to share with the Hive forums. If Ruth isn’t your thing, this cut does away with her too.
Just today I worked out how to edit “The Timeless Children” to my satisfaction
It was the previous episode, “Ascension of the Cybermen” that provided me with the alternative to the Timeless Child (a twist I have no issue with and am open to, but this edit is for friends of mine who aren’t on board.since The Doctor’s past with the Division was probably the most genuinely compelling part of the whole revelation, why not make the journey into the Matrix ALL ABOUT THAT hmm? So gone is Tecteun and child experimentation, and in comes how Brendan was recruited. Nothing about the Doctor’s origin is made too clear, so this is very much not just a renegade cut but a “Cartmal Cut”, revealing backstory but keeping the Doctor’s truth a bit distant. Andrew Cartmal himself wasn’t very satisfied with the timeless children twist either.
Oh, and for kicks, I replaced the Morbius Doctor with something altogether different…won’t spoil what, but I figured it was a worthy inclusion
A quick edit of “Day of the Dumpster” that includes an introduction to Tommy, setting him up for later in the series. Also rearranged the first two scenes so we’re introduced to the teens first followed by Rita’s release.
