Doctor Who-The Snowmen [Fanedit]

Another remake of an earlier edit, this time I thought I’d try minimizing most of Strax’s comedy and interactions with The Doctor a tad. Also gone is the one word test and the stuff with the memory worm, as well as Clara’s first exploration of The Doctor’s dwelling in the clouds. Everything else is pretty much the same.

Doctor Who-Gallifrey Falls [Fanedit]

In it’s infancy, this edit was known as “The Moment Has Come” and was released on this blog back in 2015, but the purging of my previous MEGA account lost the product to the tearful rains of time, so I’ve now decided to revisit it with a snappier title and a few improvements to the editing.

The episode now begins with the very unveiling of the “Gallifrey Falls” painting, and the titles follow Matt saying “the day he killed them all”, we have a shortened version of the RTD era Doctor Who theme, and then back to the museum for most of the story.

I decided to hold back from the War Doctor’s introduction scene until the time came for him to meet The Moment and fetch the Fez, luckily, there’s a perfect moment to bridge from the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors meeting to that scene as soon as Ten says “so where did it go?” when inquiring about the Fez. Very lucky to have had that scene there.

The destruction of Gallifrey originally came about in my first edit as soon as Clara found the War Doctor had vanished from the chair. Here we get to see the War Doctor actually trigger the big red button that leads to the obliteration of the planet.

Most of the story is the same, I opted to also omit any scene with the painting of Elizabeth and Ten getting smashed in by the Zygons for reasons that become quite clear at the end. I was never really satisfied with how Whoflix  ended his Tennant cut, and thought it needed a better closing shot than just his TARDIS materializing. So I spared the painting of Elizabeth and The Doctor from destruction so we can have a quick pan over to it one more time.

Red Dwarf-Out of Time (Tikka Edit)

“Out of Time” is largely thought of as the last of the “good” outings for the boys from the ‘Dwarf. It was the final episode written by both Rob Grant and Dough Naylor before Grant went on to pursue solo fortunes and Naylor was left with keeping the franchise afloat for as long as it could remain profitable, and it’s an engine that’s been kept running ever since. Whether or not the ship has sprang a few leaks or not is a matter for subjective opinion with the long serving fanbase.

But let’s get back to when one era ended, and how it was resolved with an era about to begin. “Out of Time” began a four year hiatus for the show, and ended in dramatic fashion with the crew seemingly killed by their future selves after a skirmish. It would not be until 1997 where we learned the conveniently convoluted explanation for their ongoing survival in a small pre-titles prelude before beginning an entirely different adventure.

It is with this prelude in mind that I decided to tinker with a minimally different edit of “Out of Time” by taking the series seven epilogue and having it work as linking material to the unedited and complete episode. Lister introduces us to the story as soon as he says “see attached” and chimes back in shortly after Starbug’s destruction to explain everything else.

Better than Air Belgium? I’ll leave that to the subjective opinions of the audience these edits are made for…your fine selves.

By the way, they’re in space.

UPDATE: Following advice from FE.Org’s “Wilhelm Scream”, I’ve put together an alternative cut

Changes

-Video journal moved to pre-titles
-Everything about reality bubbles and Lister as an android removed
-Series VII titles used instead of Series VI

Smallville-Finale ”Finalized” [Fanedit]

Another stab at making a shorter version of the Smallville series finale. I’d previously done this with the aborted ”Circle” edit meshing up ”Homecoming” and ”Finale”, and it was up here for a time before FE.org’s Bionicbob pointed out a continuity error which necessitated a takedown…and then of course I lost the edit and the files in a crash so production of it was again stalled.

Fortunately, I happened to find my ”Finale” DVD rip still haunting an old save drive of mine so I thought I’d take out the old motor and see what I could do with just the ”Finale” material. Years of editing experience has given me the confidence to finally put this puppy together in a way that I hope is somewhat compelling and emotionally satisfying

SPOILERS FOR THE EDIT

The key omissions and changes to this particular edit are as follows:

-No possession of Oliver Queen by Darksied

-No flash forwards to Chole reading the comic book to her kid or the scenes at the Planet at the end

-Lois and Clark’s wedding isn’t ruined and delayed for seven years, and is pretty much the penultimate scene

-Lois does not board Airforce One.

-Tess does not erase Lex’s memories.

-Episode ends with Clark getting the suit and the pep talk from his fathers before zooming out of the Fortress

Clark saving the world from Apokolips at the end BEFORE he gets the suit is a trick you can only really pull off because of the artistic choices the actual people in charge made not to commit to showing Clark in the suit fully. You only get a red and blue blur in long distance. While you have to sort of suspend disbelief SLIGHTLY here, I think it’s something you don’t have to dwell too much on. It does the job for me.

Another continuity nitpick is Clark knows where to find Tess…sadly, I don’t have much to really cover exactly how he knows where to find Tess’ car, but with the planet already in orbit around the planet, you can just say he was on his way to the Watchtower before happening to stumble on Tess’ car.

I might redo this edit down ever so slightly the line as there’s something ‘off’ about Tom Welling’s utterance of ”And now the series finale of Smallville”, but for now, here’s what I have so far.

How SPECTRE Should Have Went

And here it is. My SPECTRE fanedit. I cranked this one out in under two days. You’ll find a few things missing from this one…for example Swann’s kidnapping is cut entirely and she accompanies Bond right from the get-go. Also removed is her entire drunken ramble to James before going to bed. The ending is the same as the sample I posted below.

I decided to cut the Mexico fight at the start and just head straight into Bond’s mission for the deceased M in Rome.

Fanedit.org Problems

On the off-chance that any of my friends from Fanedit.org are visiting this blog,  I did as instructed and used the “Contact Us” option when I logged in with my second account (prior to it being merged with my original), but all it did was take me back to the main discussion selection page. I don’t want to be a pest, and since I’ve been instructed not to try to create double accounts again, I’m just going to cut my losses for now and wait until all of the sites’s bugs are fixed….if they ever are. Wraith only just recently managed to get back in after a year so I’m not holding my breath.

 

I will continue to post edits here.
