License Retained Samples [Fanedit]

I’ve made some progress on ironing out the creative difficulties in this and am well on my way, so I feel secure in announcing this project

License to Kill is one of James Bond’s most under looked glories, a brilliant and gritty glimpse into a rogue 007 using his wits and cunning to slowly and systematically take down a drug baron’s criminal empire. It’s a tough ordeal, but Bond pulls through and gets back in Blighty’s good graces, and while it ends on a happy note for Bond, it is bittersweet because the pursuit of Sanchez cost him several friends.

This edit is designed to lessen the cost of LTK, rearranging key scenes and discarding many to create a more optimistic, alternative Bond film. Here, Sharky doesn’t die, and Felix gets his happy ever after. A bit blasphemous of me to lessen the edge off this Bond classic, but I feel there’s enough material in here to still elevate this film to the fine standards fans hold it to.

Cut List

M stripping Bond of his license.
Sharky’s death cut
Bond and Lupe’s first meeting on Crest’s boat cut
Bond is already with Pam as the movie begins, so their meeting is cut.
Titles now occur after Bond and Pam run into Lupe, Bond and Lupe have history, their encounter on the boat is referenced, but that’s the extent of it. Title theme is “Snake Eater” from the Metal Gear Solid prequel game of the same name, slightly trimmed to fit titles. I’m also using a clean version of the LTK titles, though I might mix it in a bit with the standard titles.
Sanchez escapes during the climatic lorry chase and Bond, Felix and Sharky pursue him to Key West, where he is captured. Felix and Della get married.
Movie ends with Bond driving off alone into the night, with Felix telling Della he was married

James Bond: License Retained?

 

Hearing of the passing of David Hedison from the Bond movies got me thinking about my favourite Dalton movie License to Kill and what to do with it in regards to an edit. This presently is just an idea, but what about more of a happy ending for Felix?

What if License to Kill was ENTIRELY repurposed?

Stay tuned….

Doctor Who-Listen [Fanedit]

dwlisten

Another fresh reconstruction of an episode followers of this blog may remember I tackled before, only now I’m approaching it from a different angle.

“Listen” is a good episode, but it contains two stories that could easily be their own thing, initially I concentrated on the first story, but now, with more editing experience (and the fact Whoflix made a better version of the episode using the first half), I’ve decided to tackle the Orson Pink portion of the story, making sure to keep the continuity concise throughout.

-Doctor on top of the TARDIS whispering “Listen” cut
-Original establishing shot of Clara’s apartment after titles cut
-Clara returning to the cafe from later in the episode repurposed as her arriving at the cafe after the titles
-Clara and Danny’s petty squabbling cut to avoid footage of Clara putting on her coat. While she still has it on when she see her in the apartment, you can assume she put it on after she left the cafe.
-All references to the toy soldier Clara found in Danny’s orphanage cut
-Exchange with Orson about the family heirloom cut
-Clara and Danny’s reconciliation cut

Doctor Who-Silver Nemesis [Fanedit]

SILVER NEMEIS FANEDIT

Another old score to settle, not just for the Seventh Doctor, Lady Pentforte and the Cybermen, but for me and this particular serial. This time there will be a reckoning.

I first attempted to tackle this serial in 2015 and naively thought I could cut out any and all mention of Pentforte and get through the whole thing in 15 minutes, but after some kind pointers given to me by a few friends, I realised that wasn’t going to fly. The goal of fanediting I now feel is you have to take the good with the bad and enhance it’s strengths a lot more. So here in this edit all the elements are present.

I have looked at other stabs at this edit (I would recommend Whoflix’s version), they all basically fuze all three parts of the serial into one cohesive half hour or 45 minute whole, and I thought to myself that if I were to tackle this story again, I ought to do things differently than them just to stand out a bit, so I decided to retain the traditional serialised format for the story, only it would be two instalments as opposed to three.

The jazz session and Sylvester and Sophie under attack serves as our pre-titles teaser for Episode One, I removed a lot of The Doctor and Ace talking about the Nemesis in the museum, removed them going to see the Queen, removed the method by which Pentforte and Richard travel back through time to make them more mysterious, removed the police guards entirely, and omitted the Doctor explaining villidium to Ace (that comes much later in the story), so by the time we get to part two, we’re only eleven minutes in tops. More changes to part two, now a part of the newly constructed episode one, removes the appearance of the skinheads

The cliffhanger of part one is the cliffhanger of the official part two, and forms the beginning of the pre-titles of my version of part two, and it’s at this point that the mix-up of footage goes back to part one, with the Doctor finally turning his full attention to Pentforte and the battle of wits with Fenric in the chess game. There is but one continuity glitch, in that one of Pentforte’s arrows is embedded in the front of the TARDIS doorway which disappears when The Doctor and Ace arrive at Pentforte’s study, but you can let that quickly slip from your mind, it’s not there long.

Pentforte and Richard hitch hiking is in there, but there is none of the comedy involved, nor an appearance from the american tourist.

To avoid crediting the skinheads and the tourist, I used the end credits of part one for both instalments

Dimensions In Danger

TRAILER

The highly anticipated 25th anniversary episode of Power Rangers, “Dimensions In Danger” had an extra bit of footage cut from the original transmission. This footage was ultimately uploaded to Nickelodeon’s official Youtube page.

I have taken the segment (Tommy as Dino Thunder Black against his doppelganger) and inserted it into the full episode, making it as complete as it can be.

Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut: Fourth Option

SII Fourth Option

Inspired partially by a scene from  the ending of the Superman II redux by “booshman” , this “fourth option” edit allows you to view the Donner cut of Superman II in almost it’s unaltered entirety with yet another alternative outcome, one that does not include the time travel, amnesia kiss, or even the heartbreak of a Lois/Clark break-up.
I’ve grown up a Lois/Clark fan all my life and am a huge fan of their relationship in the comics, and they’ve never walked out on one another there. They’re one of the strongest, most durable married couples on the printed page and I want my movies reflecting that godammit!
Because I made this over a week ago on April Fools Day (and for future April Fool’s occasions), I decided to include the “Superman II as originally shot and intended to be filmed” credit at the beginning of the movie rather than do away with it, that way you can trick people into thinking this is indeed the story the director wanted to tell or surprise them with the fact that it’s a fanedit!
