Marvel’s Spider-Man: Scientific Method [Fanedit]

I’ve now seen all six parts of the ”Origin” minisodes” for Marvel’s Spider-Man and figured an edit joining them all up was due. Not much radically different other than the fact I removed the final moments of webisode three with Peter crashing into a wall off screen

Doctor Who-World Enough and Time [Fanedit]

Thirteen

Nice tits Hartnell.

 

Well, something cheif among Sidney Newman’s final requests for the show has come to pass [another desire was retro generation, we’ll cover that eventually in my lifetime too I’m sure…probably once Tennant runs out of lucky dimes over in Duckberg], congratulation to Jodi Whittiker as she takes a man’s key and inserts it into her hole to spread her legs across the milky way.

 

…What do you mean that came out wrong?

Anyhoo, don’t think of this edit as a part of my series ten revisited series, I already have an altogether different plan for the finale of that particular series…no, no this is strictly some quick fun I ¬†opted to have with the series ten finale.

Since it aired, I have always felt the ideal opportunity was to have had Capaldi make a surprise exit in ”The Doctor Falls”..why should he rehash the resistance to change when Eleven assured us that we must always keep moving and never forget who we were? Capaldi spending sixty minutes moaning about it fresh off us eating our Christmas dinner may not be what happens, but it’ll form part of it, and I think that’s such a shame…better to go out in a blaze of grace

A lot of the edits you’ll see here will show up in my revisited version, but not all of them, and the first and latter halves is pretty much note for note unaltered aside from a couple of nips and tucks to join the episodes up, and of course, a very special ending.

I need to go back to the kitchen now…and Jodi needs to go back to the TARDIS…and towards the future.

Doctor Who: Series Ten Revisited-Knock Knock [Fanedit]

Knock Knock II

 

We’re a week late with this, but believe me, it was a doozy trying to make it work with what was left of the episode after using some of it for other entries in this series. The first version I had made use of several deleted scenes, but I realized some of the scenes cut off abruptly [in fact, the one I kept still does] and didn’t make for a very satisfactory finale, so a lot of what I didn’t like about Knock Knock had to be kept in to pad everything out, that includes, sadly, the fact everyone comes back to life at the end.

Other than the deleted scene I wound up keeping and the new pre titles sequence, there isn’t anything all too radical about this one I’m afraid, and I still haven’t been quite able to make it forty five minutes, so you’ll have to settle for it being ten minutes shorter

Next Friday we’ll be meeting a chap called Friday and the Empress of Mars

The Matrix Revoloaded [Fanedit]

…Probably the dumbest title I’ve ever made for an edit but I’m in a cute enough mood for one today

neo

The Matrix sequels are, to quote the Colonel from KFC, ”An escalating probability of disaster”. While I have all the time in the world for philosophy, people just want to turn their brains off when it comes to movies that deliver big action set pieces and not have to worry about whether or not we should be sitting on our arses pondering whether cumming ourselves is due to a poetic programmer inserting the feeling into us with a chocolate eclair.

I’ll have what she’s having by the way.

What I decided to do with the crammed sandwich that is Reloaded and Revolutions was to basically boil it down to a very simplified premise of Neo on a quest to reach the source and save Zion, only to run afoul of people trying to obstruct him and the escalating threat of Smith. The hows and whys of Smith being there are so irrelevant the movies barely offer an explanation…and I think Neo receiving the package and The Oracle’s explanation of Smith simply being Neo’s opposite and negative is a more thorough way of conveying to the audience that it simply is what it is…the equation trying to balance itself out.

Speaking of The Oracle..sorry Gloria Foster, but I think you need to sit this one out. One Oracle more than suffices for the telling of this tale and a little crafty editing here and there hopefully ensures Neo and the audience understands why she is different enough to just roll with it.

The Oracle scenes and the burly brawl with Smith aside, nothing else from Revolutions carries over…well, ok, I had to do something with Sati, but there really isn’t much of her, don’t worry.

My initial idea was to have Neo enter the door of light and find himself battling Smith in the climatic burly brawl, but then I discovered another faneditor, FE.org’s Wraith, had already utilized a similar climax for his edit. Luckily, I had already stumbled on an alternate ending I was strongly considering and I got to use that instead.

I didn’t bother with end credits for this one…too much of a fuss.

No Zion, no super powers outside the Matrix, no kid, no loss of faith from Morpheus, just the story of men and women both of and against the literal system. Get jacked in.

Doctor Who Series Ten Revisited-Oxygen

Oxygen

I know what you’re thinking…”hang on a minute Zar, is’nt this episode five?”

In order of transmission, quite so, but this is fanediting and if I feel we ought to be moving up the steps on the ladder quicker, I don’t see the point in trying to slow us down.

Where does that leave ”Thin Ice” you may ask? Well, the honest heart of the matter is I did’nt see a hell of a lot wrong with that story…that, plus I kind of have a soft spot for it seeing as it was initially leaked out earlier than it was intended to air…not a particularly essential story, but one I was still incredibly excited to preview ahead of transmission time. Any time something comes from ”the future”, it makes being a fan as close to the reality of the television show they’re addicted to.

So warm memories of spending Saturday morning watching the ”leak”, the fact that it’s not a bad and rather pleasing little romp [once you get past the preachy SJW gunk], and wanting to get through the series quicker in a most unique manner got me thinking a bit about what to do with as minimal amount of ”Thin Ice” as possible, and I decided to use the final few minutes of it as the pre-titles teaser to this one, the result is a slightly longer than usual opener but I think it still works

As for the ”Knock, Knock” story arc…we see it advance just a little more here, as Bill finally moves in , and The Doctor gets to meet her gang of friends. We also get a little more of the mysterious creeking before we resume the rest of Jamie Matheson’s brilliant ”Oxygen” as normal, with one major omission at the end. In keeping with Jamie’s original script, The Doctor regains his eyesight and doesn’t go blind.

Is that it then? Have we ”seen” [or rather unseeen] the sightless Doc? Maybe…maybe not, depends on if a certain edit goes the way I want, but for now, I hear someone knocking twice at my door…might wait until next week before I answer.

Doctor Who-Series Ten Revisited: Smile [Fanedit]

Smile

SPOILERS FOR THE EPISODE AND EDIT FOLLOW:

Smile was a story badly in need of a mystery to go with the exploration…something that the pre-titles unfortunately eroded right from the outset by revealing what the problem was, what was behind it, and the fate of the colonists.

As Moffat once said about unsurprising reveals on the Earthshock DVD, ”if the story was called Robots of Death, it’s whodunnit status was completely compromised”…well, while the title may not give much away here, maybe you should try to make sure the first few minutes of the episode don’t do the same…so out it goes, the first of some rather minimal changes overall to the story.

Yes, I actually like this one despite the lack of a good strong hook for The Doctor and Bill as they build on their relationship and banter. It’s a very nice step-by-step guide to the wonders of The Doctor’s world and there’s your typical moment where a companion learns a harsh truth about where it is that humanity is going. The only other thing at fault with the story that I can’t fix admittedly is the I.T crowd ending.

As it stands, I like the episode so much that there’s not much to edit other than provide a much stronger opening for proceedings…which is supplied by using what was cut from my edit of ”The Pilot”…The Doctor inviting Bill on board the TARDIS. Simple as that.

From there, a few trims repurpose ”Smile”s original pre-titles footage [the parts with The Doctor and Bill anyway] into post-titles footage, and they’re soon on the planet exploring the colony and we build on the now newly instated mystery of what happened to everyone.

For the ending, it’s back to the story arc we begun in the edit of ”The Pilot” involving Bill’s future dwelling, and we learn the fate of one of the new residents…I don’t really know how much of ”Knock, Knock” I’ll be left with once the time comes to wrap this devil up, but we’ll see. Thankfully the footage here is minimal.

Don’t look for any fancy custom next times or end credits this time to reflect the changes…I really, really, can’t be arsed doing all that. I have no time. So we crash after the final scene into the executive producer credits at the very end.

Next week, the more radical changes resume…but I must ask a question made famous by a most animated talk show host of the nineties…are you getting enough OXYGEN?
