Licence Retained Samples [Fanedit]

BondLR

 

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

Licence to Kill┬áis 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 dismantle a drug baron’s 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.

 

I decided to move up the wedding back to the start and work in a new narrative where Bond missed his appointment in Instabull to attend Leighter’s wedding, and that’s what M is mad with Bond about, not pursuing vengeance.

Here’s what I’ve done with the Bond and M meeting

Another sample

Rearranged a couple of scenes, Sanchez, now free, collects and whips his girfriend, Bond hears about Sanchez escaping at the airport en route to Istanbul, cut to London where M decides Sanchez must be stopped

I’ve trimmed the meeting with Pam to ignore any and all references to Sanchez having Felix’s files, and now they go to Istmus after taking a job offer from Dario, this in now how Bond gets his money.

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

 

How SPECTRE Should Have Ended

Back to editing at last. I do apologize for the lack of updates on this end folks…computer trouble plus working out what kind of edits to do can sometimes get the better of you

I’ve been working on touching up a minimally altered edit of Spectre, cheifly changing the opening of the film, removing some fairly cheesy moments here and there, as well as ending the film at a half-way decent spot which gives the core characters a chance to shine…in my ending, it’s M that deals the final blow to Spectre’s plans.
