Power Rangers Super Megaforce-Legendary Battle [Fanedit]

supermegaforcelogo

 

A Power Rangers edit attempting to fuze elements of “Vrack Is Back”, “The Wrath” and “Legendary Battle” into one story.

As of this writing, the edit I’ve managed is the standard length of one PR episode. It’s not perfect, but I think I have a good outline of where to go. Here’s my blueprint

-Removed Orion being captured and used as a power source
-Removed Roboknight being a prisoner of Vrack and turned against The Rangers
-Removed All Moments and Referenes to the Legendary Keys Being Turned to Stone
-Removed Orion being rescued by Roboknight from the Aquatic base as well as any mention of Roboknight dying, so when he turns up for the Legendary Battle, his exchange with Troy makes more sense
-End the episode on the Rangers saying goodbye to Orion as he leaves in an Armada ship. The bit where he looks at the team photograph before heading off into space is a note-perfect moment to end a series on.

At first I was pretty intimidated with how swamped I got with the “Vrack Is Back” footage, but as I watched it all the way through, I realized the footage take care of itself…the easiest solution is not to have a masterplan to create the drills in the first place…he already has them. That allowed me to remove pretty much 90% of “Vrack is Back”. I had to do some slight tinkering with audio from part one and applied to the part two footage, but it came together nicely.

Sliders-The Exodus [Fanedit]

sliders

The Exodus is the infamous two-parter of the 90s multiverse exploration series SLIDERS, a series that was frequently plauged by executive meddling, pointless cast changes, and ridiclous storylines. It holds a speical place in my heart as it’s first two seasons are amongst the best speculative fiction I’ve ever seen and I do actually have some sort of soft spot for the third season even if it (and season five) are the worst.

The Exodus has a lot going against it…death of a fan favourite character in Professor Artro, gobbeldigook science jargon, the characters all being incredibly self-centered and mean-spirited, a weird serial killer/coma victim subplot…there’s a lot to cut out or generally minimise, and evidently I haven’t been the only one who’s considered this. Apparently the Earth Prime online communuty tried their hand at the Exodus fanedit, I found it on Vimeo and it’s inspired me to do my own version.

I think they tried to be too ambitious with the edit, attempting to ignore some of the hokeier moments and, in what I feel was a missed oppertunity, cut out Quinn returning to his home Earth. This was a seminal moment for me and I thought one of the better moments of the two-parter, ruined all too quickly by Maggie’s ludicrous “allergy” to an Earth. In my version, Quinn and Maggie return from Quinn’s world with no problems and they decide that Earth is where the population of the doomed Pulsar Earth goes.

Arturo’s death is now repurposed in a way that gives him some dignity and underlines the trimph of the Sliders with a tragic setback…they have made it home at last, but feel compelled to return to their usual adventures in order to bring Rickman to justice.

Maggie’s husband is killed off-screen, as Rickman tells Maggie he was killed by the rioters.

The whole Rembrant/Malcom subplot has been removed, they still meet and Rembrant does still bond with him, but the whole drama with trying to get him on the list or whatnot is edited out.

I retained some of the cheesier elements because Sliders is pure 90s cheese and it would feel hollow without some of that being in there. It’s not really a very joyful story as it is.

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.

Doctor Who-Day of the Moon Sample

 

Snapshot 1 (16-03-2016 22-13)

Well, it’s been a while since I posted a sample of anything, but I think this fits the bill

For fun, I’ve been trying to put together a more coherant, 33-minute trim of the second half of Doctor Who’s sixth series premiere, “Day of the Moon”, just to see if that ridiculous chase Canton embarks on for the first five or so minutes could be removed without mucking up the plot too much. I even framed the title sequence to begin as soon as the “previously ends” with Amy freaking out over shooting Melody

This shall not be the last fanedit you see from me before the year’s out. Besides the full version of this, I also intend to post my edit of The God Complex

Star Wars Rogue One Review And Fanedit Ideas

I’m a tough nut to crack regarding movies with the myth of hype behind them, but this is a cracking good movie.

Is it perfect? No…there’s a really mediocre middle act where you have to wonder “why did they go there?”, but they pick up speed swiftly after and there’s at least a pivotal plot point in it that the protagonists learn of. Everything after that is pure gold. Every action means something, and there is so many boss scenes with Vader that it finally, FINALLY, rinses out the bitter taste of “Nooooooooooo”. James Earl Jones redeemed. Vader redeemed. Make no mistake about it, it puts a whole new spin on A New Hope, that movie really ought to be re titled to “A Stroke of Luck”

That entire third act IS Star Wars. Go see it, just try to make it through the second act and you will be pleasantly rewarded.

 

Now, onto the fanedit ideas

I’d see about possibly removing that entire middle act, you could have Felicity Jones learn about “stardust” another way than from her dad’s dying mouth, I’d actually end her dad’s role when she finds his hologram from Forest Whitaker (and yeah, I’m lapsing on the actual character names, sorry), also I’d minimise the number of times the design flaw in the Death Star is constantly brought up.

-The right transistional effects
-Crawl
-Maybe call it “Episode IV.1”
-More of the classic score
-You really don’t need all the Tarkin scenes.

Power Rangers (2017)-Wasserman Cut

I did three versions of this, this version, a funny Doctor Who/Class/PR trailer mix,  and a slightly longer one with the first MMPR movie theme over some scenes, but I was not satisfied with the latter. You can still find it on my Youtube channel if you’re curious though

 

The tone of the movie was practically begging for me to use the choice of music I went with here.
